No Stress Tour – New Program

“The first No-Stress-Tour” (francais en bas, deutsch weiter unten)
Summer is the time when lots of things are happening in Germany, also in and around Berlin.
People profit of the sun, they become more active and open up. This offers opportunities,
particular for refugees, to think of new strategies to build up a better communal life.
For this reason CISPM and Afrique Europe Interact, international networks for emancipation and
integration of refugees, are planning a project called „No Stress Tour“, which should take place this
summer from July until October.
The aim of the project is to bring refugees and other inhabitants of the city closer to each other
and to provide support with regard to the current complex asylum policy.
Despite the willingness of refugees, to open up to other residents and the willingness of other
citizens to reach out to refugees, we noted that there are still barriers, based on anxious
informations.

Anti-capitalist demonstration

Organize – against racism and social exclusion
April, 30th 2015
6:30 pm
Metro station Leopoldplatz (Berlin)

Organize – against racism and social exclusion!

The city belongs to all of us!

Everyone in Berlin creates the city as we know it. Every day we shape and build our homes, our streets, our neighborhoods. Everyone in her or his own way. As everywhere in Berlin neighborhoods are transforming – including the Wedding. These changes are associated with numerous problems. Mainly because a few want to earn of what all are creating together. Homes are being sold or renovated, rents are increasing. If accommodations can no longer be afforded you have to move in outer districts or in the worst case, your flat will be evicted. The Senate of Berlin is looking on passively. Or it supports such processes as appreciation of  so called ‘problem neighborhoods’. Quartiersmanagements (‘neighborhood managements’) and neighborhood committees support the displacements and processes of gentrification with an illusion that all citizens could take part in shaping the  policy of the city. But we do not accept this. What we create together, can be defend together – throughout an organizing from below.

Attack racist conditions!

Most refugees are excluded from a freedom of movement, social participation and attending a wage labor, as they are put down as “illegal” and being held isolated in camps. They are confronted physically and psychologically more directly with a forfeited right of self-determination. Economic businesses and social service providers already hit profits with escape and migration. In a smugly way, European policy creates a top-down “welcome culture”. In reality the immigration authorities and the public cost / benefit analysis on the “immigration status” decides who is allowed to stay or will be deported. Everyday racist police controls and the ever-present threat of deportation increase the pressure on refugees additionally. This is part of a racist propaganda which ultimately splits, humiliates and kills.
