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.

No Border Kitchen Lesvos Benefit

Monday January 29th 2018, No Border Kitchen Lesvos Benefit, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

No Border Kitchen Lesvos is a collective of independent volunteers that is active on the island since 2012. It is well know that the situation on the Island is extremely horrifying, with the current military camp of Moria currently holding 8.500 people, 6.500 more then it’s capacity. People are forced to live in inhumane conditions, and if they manage to find a place somewhere else on the island, they will still be hunted. NBK provides cooked food on a daily basis to the people who are on the street. Also we provide food boxes (a crate with fresh vegetables, oil and flower) to 300 people who do have the means to cook for themselves. Next to this we try to help people on an individual level with assisting in their asylum cases, monitoring deportations and setting up a group specificly aimed at LGBTIQ people. This of course costs money to keep going, and that’s why we need your money!

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.

Benefit voku for refugee families in the Netherlands

Thursday 30th November 2017, Benefit voku for refugee families in the Netherlands, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Children who have been in the Netherlands for over 5 years have settled here. To rip them from their environment is irresponsible and damages their development. Still it happens often; children are being dragged from their home by lots of police and are then deported. Daily they live with this fear. A law that should stop this – the ‘Children’s Amnesty’ – costs families 170 euro’s per family-member appliance. 98% of the applications are denied, so this is actually throwing money down the drain.
GEEN KIND AAN DE KANT is of the opinion that the application-costs are way too high, especially since this money goes directly to the state without much result. Still we want to help refugees who want to try this, to share their burden. Therefore we are collecting money to try and support them by paying 15% of their application. We will do this for as long as there is money, but unfortunately this is not endless. https://geenkindaandekant.wordpress.com/
That is why we would like to ask you for help share this load, by coming to the benefit VOKU at Joe’s Garage on Thursday October 5th starting from 19:00 – Pretoriusstraat 43 Amsterdam.


Vluchtelingkinderen die langer dan 5 jaar in Nederland zijn, hebben zich hier geworteld. Hen uit hun omgeving trekken is onverantwoordelijk en schadelijk voor hun ontwikkeling. Toch gebeurt het veel; zij worden met politieovermacht uit hun huis gehaald en gedeporteerd. Zij leven daarom dagelijks in angst. Een regeling die hier een eind aan zou moeten maken – het Kinderpardon – kost voor de aanvraag 170 euro per gezinslid. 98% van de aanvragen wordt vervolgens afgewezen, waardoor het allemaal weggegooid geld is.
GEEN KIND AAN DE KANT vindt de aanvraaggelden die betaald moeten worden voor het Kinderpardon belachelijk hoog, vooral omdat het geld vrijwel rechtstreeks de staatskas in gaat en er maar erg weinig aanvragen worden ingewilligd. Toch willen we vluchtelingen die deze weg willen bewandelen, proberen te helpen deze gigantische last te dragen. Daarom zijn we geld aan het inzamelen om te proberen 15% per aanvraag te kunnen helpen betalen. Dit kunnen we doen zolang we geld hebben, maar zodra het op is, is het op. https://geenkindaandekant.wordpress.com/
Daarom vragen we jullie om een steentje bij te dragen door naar een benefiet VOKU te komen in Joe’s Garage op donderdag 5 oktober vanaf 19:00 – Pretoriusstraat 43 Amsterdam.
