Benefit voku for imprisoned Russian activists

Thursday 29 November 2018, Benefit voku for imprisoned Russian activists. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

On the eve of the presidential elections and the World Cup, repressions began in Russia. Activists are being kidnapped, beaten up, electrocuted and forced to sign and learn investigative evidence and false confessions by heart. Besides tortures and battery, detainees are threatened to be imprisoned for a long time: the secret service FSB are accusing the jailed anarchists and antifascicts in participation in a mythical terrorist organization called “Network”.

There are currently eleven people behind bars. Their investigation period was just extended until January of 2019 by court decision. The cases need international attention and support – the situation is unbearable. Repression of anarchists and antifascists needs to be stopped.

Come for a delicious three-course solidarity dinner at joe’s on the 29th of November to support the detainees!

For more info and updates on the cases –> https://rupression.com/
All donations for the dinner will go to Rupression, a collective that is working on spreading information about the cases and is helping them with legal costs. […Lees verder]

Benefit dinner for “la parole aux Migrants”

Monday 5 November 2018, Benefit dinner for “la parole aux Migrants” by All Included. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. From 9pm, live music on the stage with The Flamenco Thief.

CONFERENCE INTERNATIONALE DES MIGRANTS AU MAROC “la parole aux Migrants” 1-2 dec. 2018 in Rabat

While the European Union is putting pressure on North and sub-Saharan Africa to close their borders, we see no genuine initiatives working on the reasons why migrants are leaving their countries. From 5-7 dec. 2018 the World Forum on Migration and Development takes place in Marrakesh.
Five years ago Morocco started developing a national migration policy including an asylum procedure. In the last 50 years Morocco changed first from a migration country to a transit country and now a country of destination. What is the impact of this policy on the lives of the migrants?
The Association of Refugees and Migrant Communities in Morocco (ARCOM) and the Platform of Subsaharian Associations and Communities in Morocco (PASCOMS) organize a big meeting inviting Moroccan NGO’s in a migrant neighborhood in Rabat while giving the voice to the migrants.

For freedom of movement and fair development. […Lees verder]

A solidarity voku for Russian antifascists

Monday 8 October 2018, A solidarity voku for Russian antifascists. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

“In the run-up to presidential elections and the FIFA World Cup, repressions against antifascists and anarchists started in Russia. In Autumn 2017, 6 people were arrested in Penza; several of them had weapons and explosives planted on them. FSB officers then tortured the antifascists right in the detention facility: they applied naked wires to the activists’ various body parts and turned the electricity on, they beat them up, hanged them upside down. While torturing them, the agents made the activists learn by heart the story the FSB needed: they were supposed to confess of having founded and belonging to a terrorist organization called “The Network”. In late January 2018, two more antifascists were arrested in Saint-Petersburg. They, too, were beaten up, tortured with electric current, and forced to incriminate themselves by confirming they were members of the ‘Network’.” [https://rupression.com/]

Currently, eleven people are behind bars and facing long sentences. Most of them are accused of being members of a non-existent terrorist organization and planning violent attacks against the state. It is clear, that the crimes the imprisoned people are charged with, are fabricated by the Federal Security Service. By inventing the story about the “Network” and torturing people to the point that they have no other option, than to make false confessions, the secret police are aiming to frame Russian anarchists as terrorists. The imprisoned antifascists and anarchists need support with legal costs and with drawing attention to the cases – the repression they have faced needs to stop.

Come express solidarity with the Russian antifascists and eat at Joe’s garage on the 8th of October! There will be more information available about the cases and a chance to write postcards or letters to the prisoners if you wish. All donations for the food go directly to rupression – a collective, that has been active in spreading information about the “Network” cases and supporting the tortured antifascists.

Benefit for APATRIS greek anarchist news paper

Monday 1st October 2018, Benefit for APATRIS greek anarchist news paper. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

The street newspaper APATRIS (https://apatris.info/) began in 2009 from Heraklion (Crete) and for a year was distributed only locally. In 2010, comrades from other places in Crete began to collaborate with the project. Since then and for about 2.5 years APATRIS has been issued as a Pancreatan anarchist newspaper.

The basic standpoint of the initial editorial team, according to the editorial of the first issue (March 2009), referred to the inability of existing information structures to be used as reliable means of news broadcasting and free expression and therefore any attempt with a reformist character would not be effective. As a means of counter-information, APATRIS may contribute to the co-production of an independent social discourse. As a result, the individual responsibility of each author is stressed. They claim that: “The purpose of this publication is not to shape a common line or agenda that suggests the soundest solution. Our aim is to hear opinions not necessarily in complete agreement with each other, views and events carefully buried by the mass media and altered under the weight of authoritarian interests, but also to perceive the developments around us in order to develop our texts and our actions”.

APATRIS made a call for a meeting to all existing counter-information media in Greece. The meeting finally took place on June 29, 2013 in Heraklion, Crete. Different collectives active in counter-information took part (Athens Indymedia, Candia Alternativa, Radio Revolt, 98 fm, Espiv, APATRIS, etc). Similar initiatives had taken place in the past (Thessaloniki 2011, Athens) in reaction to the repression of various counter-information media. These past meetings highlighted the need for more structured, regular and nationwide series of meetings. […Lees verder]
