Dear Sir / Madam,

I want to inform you that I am under arrest without having violated any law or committed any crime. This reminds me of the many times I was arrested by the repressive Sudanese regime for my peaceful activism and for defending my rights and the rights of exploited people. But this time I am under arrest for trusting the human rights values and obligations of the Norwegian State.

International Conference on Migration, Irregularisation and Activism: Challenging Contemporary Border Regimes, Racism and Subordination

Unser Europa hat keine Grenzen

Unser Europa hat keine Grenzen

Call for Papers

15-16 of June 2016, Malmö, Sweden www.mia-conference.se

Deadline for abstracts extended to 15th of February!

In the current era of increasing securitisation of border controls and restrictive asylum and migration politics, the journey to and within the EU is a life-threatening endeavour that has taken uncountable numbers of lives over the last decades. The bordering processes are not limited to the crossing of nation-state borders but also operate in everyday lives inside and across borders. Through processes of exclusion as well as processes of subordinated and differentiated inclusion, borders permeate all aspects of the welfare state, the labour market, and everyday lives. At the same time, there are numerous struggles by migrants who in different ways contest border regimes and racialised practices of policing., These developments are taking place in a context of hyper-polarisation of political reactions. Racist and fascist discourses feed into ideas of fear and emergency, parallel with a renewed growth of humanitarian and activist responses aimed at resisting migration control and challenging these discourses.

Liebe Freund_innen und Genoss_innen,

es ist mittlerweile gut 4 Wochen her, seit wir uns an Euch mit der Bitte um Eure Unterstützung gewendet hatten. Ursprünglich um nach Slovenien zu fahren – um dort gespendetes Material (Zelte,Decken,Schlafsäcke etc ) an geflüchtete Menschen zu verteilen und eine mobile VolXküche zu errichten.

Die Reaktion auf unseren Aufruf war überwältigend. Schon nach kurzer Zeit hatten wir soviel Material gespendet bekommen das die Sammelstellen
überquollen.
