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]

Revenir (To Return), documentary by David Fedele and Kumut Imesh

Thursday 5 July 2018 at Joe’s Garage, Pretoriusstraat 43, Amsterdam
Doors open at 19pm with food. Screening and discussion from 20:30. On that screening, David Fedele will be also on-line after the screening to discuss the film with Kumut and the audience.

Revenir (To Return), a film by David Fedele and Kumut Imesh, 2018, 83 minutes, with English subtitles. Four screenings with Kumut Imesh in four different locations in Amsterdam from 5 till 8 july 2018.

David Fedele‘s latest film Revenir is a collaboration with Kumut Imesh from the Ivory Coast in West Africa, who now lives in France as a refugee. The film follows Kumut as he returns to the African continent to attempt to retrace and film the same journey that he himself took more than ten years ago, when forced to flee his country to seek asylum… But this time with a camera in his hand.

Kumut Imesh  –  co-director / camera / protagonist : Originally from the Ivory Coast in West Africa, Kumut was forced to flee civil war in his country in 2004. Seeking a peaceful and safe place to live, he began the long journey across the African continent before finally arriving in Morocco, where he spent 7 years. While in Morocco he worked closely with NGOs and associations working closely with other migrants, providing support and assistance.

In 2013 he met the film director David Fedele in Morocco, and he worked as the translator for the film The Land Between. During this time, Kumut developed a very keen interest in documentary film-making, especially the potential to tell stories from an African perspective, and the original idea to make a film retracing his journey across Africa was born.

In 2014 Kumut arrived in Europe, and was granted asylum. He currently lives as a refugee with his wife and small child in France, working as a webmaster. He is also the founder and president of ACSORE (Actions of Solidarity for Refugees), an association in France that works for the social and educational integration of asylum seekers and refugees.

REVENIR is Kumut’s first film.

David Fedele is an independent documentary filmmaker, traveler, wanderer, dreamer, musician, part-time philosopher and full-time incessant thinker. He entered the world of documentary filmmaking through a love of travel and exploring different cultures, having traveled extensively throughout Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South America. Generally working alone, self-producing and self-funding his own projects, David is particularly interested in exploring cultural, humanitarian, environmental and social justice issues. His films have covered such diverse topics as sub-Saharan African migration in Morocco, electronic waste in Ghana and illegal logging in Papua New Guinea.
In 2014, David Fedele screened The Land Between in various locations in Amsterdam.

REVENIR – synopsis: For years, the stories of West African migrants and refugees have been told through the lenses of foreign journalists. Now there is a story from the inside.
Part road-trip, part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Revenir follows Kumut Imesh, a refugee from the Ivory Coast now living in France, as he returns to the African continent and attempts to retrace the same journey that he himself took when forced to flee civil war in his country … But this time with a camera in his hand.
Traveling alone, Kumut will be documenting his own journey; both as the main protagonist in front of the camera, as well as the person behind it, revealing the human struggle for freedom and dignity on one of the most dangerous migratory routes in the world.
A controversial film experiment, a courageous journey and a unique collaboration between filmmaker and refugee; which is not without consequences.

Benefit Freedom of Movement – Music with Farbrengen, acoustic klezmer duo from New Orleans

Thursday May 24th 2018, Benefit Freedom of Movement, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. After the food and talk from All Included, around 9pm, music with Farbrengen, acoustic klezmer duo from New Orleans with Rebecca Mac (violin) and Mattias Kauffman (accordion).

All Included is a small campaign organization in Amsterdam that struggles for free migration and sustainable development. We support the migrants’ movement that fights for their rights.
The current developments on the EU-borders demonstrate the power of migration that breaks the illusion of Europe as an island of equal rights, civilization, democracy and welfare(state). We support the migrants who come to our borders and welcome them. The EU has always pretended to be in control of the border security without degenerating into a Fortress Europe. Given the large numbers of migrants entering ‘irregularly’ today, the EU broke out in panic while portraying migrants as a threat and migration as a crime. The repressive EU-deal like the one with Turkey is not new. Other buffer states such as Morocco, Libya, Mauritania, Senegal have had to sign those deals in the past where migrants, irrespective of flight pattern, are kept outside the EU. Human rights are violated outside the EU in return of a bag of money. The war against immigrants is just more visible now because it is clear that the EU cannot control the migration at its borders. We support migrants breaking through borders and confronting the image of the EU as an tolerant civilization. The EU is pressuring African states to stop migration threatening with stopping development Aid: the Velletta agreements. We say: Open Escape Routes! Stop Deportations! Our African friends are resisting these deals: http://www.allincluded.nl/posts/actie-landgrabbing-office-du-niger-in-mali/

All Included is involved in Afrique-Europe Interact, a partnership between African and European grassroots organizations that support free migration and sustainable development. Contacts are mainly in Western Europe (Mali, Togo, Burkina Faso, Senegal) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia). Themes are deportation, freedom of movement, land grabbing, corruption. All Included is also active in Watch the Med http://www.watchthemed.net/) and Alarm Phone (http://alarmphone.org/en/), a 24-hour emergency phone for those who cross the Mediterranean. Undocumented migrants in Amsterdam are where possible supported by All Included. Big project coming up is the Migration Route Tetterode on 7 & 8th of July 2018,: a fysical route through a legalized squat in Amsterdam, open for public who will guided by migrants/smuglers. Along the route aspects of the migration route by artists, migrants, activists in form of expositions, films, workshops, debate, film (http://www.allincluded.nl/posts/migratieroute-tetterode/) […Lees verder]

What’s included?

All Included Amsterdam is a new initiative that fights for freedom of movement and for the right of residence for migrants. In a time when globalization is a fact, migration should be recognized as part of a package deal. It’s All Included. This means: no illegality, no detention for undocumented migrants and no forced evictions.

With the disappearance of national borders, national identity disappears. Everyone becomes global citizen and deserves regardless of origin equal rights and equal opportunities. Therefore also for migrants ‘all included’ rights and obligations.

Allincluded.nl fightsg for an open society through extra-parliamentary action which intervenes in the political climate of assimilation, closeness and fear. Through direct assistance to rejected asylum seekers and other migrants without residence permit, indictments against abuses of current polities are being propagated. We want to contribute to the public debate with alternative visions of migration and globalization based on open borders, solidarity and initiative from the base.

Edinburgh, London, Bristol, Amsterdam, Brussels, Charleville-Mezieres, Paris, Berlin, Geneva, Zurich, Luxembourg, Athens, Venice, Rome, Budapest, Prague, Vienna, [Hamburg, Dresden, Oslo, Stockholm?!] and Copenhagen are all on the roster (although some might get snipped) – Put me in touch with your people, especially squatters and DIY-anarcho folks, and just random intellectuals in the Olde Worlde.
