*English – We will explain the system in Chad*
In our workshop we will speak first about the 103 children from Chad, who got kidnapped in October 2007 by the french aid-agency „L’Arche de Zoé“ pretending that they are orphans. After that three workers from this aid-agency got imprisoned. When in 2008 rebels wanted to overthrow the regime of Idriss Deby and take over the power in the capital N´Djamena, France and the regime made a deal: If the regime is letting the workers from „L’Arche de Zoé“ out of prison, France will fight the rebels with his army.

On the 8 th of March in N‘Djamena, the capital city of Chad, peaceful demonstrators who were fighting for their right of assembly and freedom of speech, again had to face harsh violations of human rights including police violence: humiliations, beatings and killings. While the western media has virtually acclaimed the Chadian military as a brother of France in the battle against oppression in other Africa countries, exploitation and oppression of their own population in their own country has reached a new, sad height.
Brothers and sisters from and around Berlin: Come and join us! Now is the time to fight for our rights! And for the rights of our brothers and sisters in Chad! Stop the dictatorship and the capitalist system which again killed more than 3 students and led to the detention of more than 200 students since March 8 th in N‘Djamena! We are the Chad Youth in Germany. We are calling for a demonstration in front of the Chadian Embassy in Berlin, Germany, on March 18 th , 2015.at Oranienplatz 12 noonfrom Bundesplatz at 1.30 P.M.to Lepsiusstr. 114, the Chadian EmbassyContinue reading →
There is a new racist movement on the streets of Germany. These people who call themselves Pegida (patriotic Europeans), gathered ten thousand people to the march hold in Dresden. Now they do these demonstrations every Monday and start in other cities as well. The racist movement included a very small amount of people until today, but now the number increased to ten thousands.
The starting point of this racist movement is Islamphobia. They say “We do not want the Islamisation of Europe”. They legitimized themselves through demonstrations against ISIS. Football team fans massively participated in these demos. Now there is also participation from different groups in society.
A series of workshops on our homelands is starting. The first episode will be talking about the current political situation in Chad.
With these workshops, we want to inform people about the reasons why we are here in Germany. In the case of Chad, you might know that our president and dictator since 25 years wants to get “reelected” for the 5th time. However, the colonial exploitation of the resources of our country has been carried on since the independance of the country, in 1960. Since 2003, big petrol companies are drilling our oil: the incomes never reached the chadian population. Different people will also give some general information about the colonial history and geography of our country, in order to let curious european citizens understand more deeply the present of our country.
The demonstration on Saturday against the “re-election” of Idriss Deby counted around 200 participants and walked powerfully through the streets of Steglitz. We invite the demonstrants and all those who missed the occasion to support the fight of Chadian people for a real independancy and a right to self determination to join a workshop presenting the current situation after 24 years of dictatorship in Chad. This workshop will take place in the Kotti Verein, Adalbertstr.87, on the sunday 14.12, at 3pm.

Mr Blaise Compaoré repressed the Burkinabe people in the streets of Ouagadougou and around the Faso country, as the project of a life presidency was abandoned.
The Chadian people are worried about the democratic future of the country, seeing change in Chad becoming increasingly unlikely. Idriss Deby was 24 years in power, he managed to change the constitution in 2005 and … now, the man wants to seek re-election in 2016, for the 5 th time ! This will let him be for 30 years in power : the Chadian people said stop to Mr Idriss Deby.
Chadians are not fools. Twenty-four (24 years) to power is enough! Continue reading →
