Open Letter to those who are governing Western countries (by Emmanuel Mbolela)

Emmanuel Mbolela Open Letter

Emmanuel Mbolela Open Letter to the governers of the western world

Francais en bas



Dear governors of the western world,

In front of the chaotic and dramatic situation of the Syrian refugees which we bear witness to today, which adds up to many more, in particular those refugees fleeing African countries, and in front of which you have kept remarkably silent and complicit, which have now caught up with you, but which  you feign to discover with the terrible images of the drowned baby Aylan (may his soul rest in peace), broadcasted these days by your countries’ tv channel, I make it my citizen’s duty to send you this letter. For me it is a way to express my solidarity and compassion for  the Syrian refugees, as I have always done with other migrants and refugees from Africa, and as others have done with me when I was, together with fellow African refugees in the same situation of flight.
Furthermore, I would like to express to you my indignation towards this situation which of course is a result, for one thing, of your domination politics, which you never cease to produce, day and night, in your laboratories, and for the rest, of  the cynical, inhuman, and drastic so-called border-control measures which you have introduced.

First of all, I want to express all my solidarity to the Syrian men, women, children and babies who have lost their own or their beloved ones’ lives because they were fleeing the atrocities of war and  blood-shedding repression skillfully sparked, kept and orchestered by the system of this world’s mighty ones, and who have found themselves left to die and been denied entry in the countries where they could have found refuge. May the death, pain and suffering of these men, women, and defenseless children call out to the entire human community.

My thoughts also go to the migrants and refugees of subsaharian Africa, who fall in the desert, far away from TV channel’s cameras, and to those dying in the Mediterrannean every day, and who shall not be rescued lest, so the western world’s governors, many more try to come.

Stoppt Die Verschärfung des Asylrechts! Stop au durcissement du droit d‘asile! Stop the threat of tightening asylum laws!

english below – francais si-dessus

Für eine wirkliche Bleiberechtsregelung für langjährig Geduldete! Demonstration am Freitag, 5. Dezember 2014, 14 Uhr, Potsdamer Platz
Die Bundesregierung wird Anfang Dezember einen Gesetzesentwurf mit dem sperrigen Titel „zur Neubestimmung des Bleiberechts und der Aufenthaltsbeendigung“ veröffentlichen. Doch die angekündigte Bleiberechtsregelung für langjährig Geduldete wird so gut wie keinem der Betroffenen zugute kommen. Stattdessen entpuppt sich die Gesetzesänderung als die umfassendste Verschärfung des Asylrechts seit 1993. Alle Flüchtlinge im Dublin-Verfahren, die in einem anderen EU-Land registriert sind, sollen in Abschiebungshaft gesperrt werden. Das betrifft gut ein Drittel aller Flüchtlinge.

International demonstration against the reelection of Deby at the head of Chad State!

Saturday 29.11, 11am Oranienplatz –
1pm Chad Embassy, Lepsiusstraße 114

Français plus bas!

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!
