"Showing solidarity with migrants is not a crime!"

Solidarity with Alican Albayrak and Hüseyin Şahin
Both are supposed to be condemned for their humanity
while the EU, Germany & Greece perpetuate barbarism

deutsch: „Sich mit Migranten zu solidarisieren ist kein Verbrechen!“
statement as PDF: english & german

Alican Albayrak and Huseyin Şahin were persecuted for their political activities in Turkey against exploitation, deprivation of rights of the people and wars and therefore had to leave the country. Since 17 November 2020, they have been deprived of their freedom and are now in prison in Greece on the island of Chios. The reason: They helped two people from Turkey seeking protection, who were threatened by repression and political persecution in their land, to reach the coast. They are now accused by the Greek government of "smuggling" (violation of the migration law) and "resistance against state power". On Monday, 10 May 2021, is the trial against both. If convicted, they face deportation to the country where more years of deprivation of liberty await them.

Wars in our countries
19 March 2021 | 7:30 pm

Dear friends, sisters and brothers,

on 19 March 2003, the second attack by the USA and friendly states on Iraq began. Exactly 8 years to the day, the French air force opened the war against Libya with bombings. Both wars violated existing international law and were illegal. They were indirectly supported by the Federal Republic of Germany. Aircraft and supplies for the warring parties of the NATO states flew from here.

Press conference of the Ahmad family on 9 March 2021 from 13:30 in front of the NRW state parliament in Düsseldorf

Stellungnahme der KARAWANE
für die Rechte der Flüchtlinge und MigrantInnen

zum zweiten Todestag von Amed Ahmad

We remember Amed Ahmad died on 29 September 2018 under as yet unexplained circumstances.

Homepage of the Initiative Amed Ahmad

Amed Ahmad fled the war in Syria and lived in Geldern. On 6 July 2018, he was arrested without cause. He was deprived of his liberty for 73 days until he burned to death in his cell in Kleve Prison on 17 September 2018 under as yet unexplained circumstances. He spent 12 days in hospital. His father, who lives in Bonn, was not notified during this time. He only learned of his son's death through the media. His mother and siblings were fleeing the war in Syria. Amed longed for them and feverishly awaited their reunion.

Repeated excuses, lies, cover-ups and mishaps are being constructed to portray the death of Amed Ahmad as a "accident". Tomorrow, Tuesday 9 March 2021, the 28th parliamentary enquiry committee on the subject will take place in the NRW state parliament. On this occasion, the parents, friends and family of Amed Ahmad are calling for a press conference.

Online refugee meetings - Invitation and Program

PDF البرنامج باللغة العربية | Programm als PDF (deutsch) | PDF برنامه به فارسی | program as PDF (english) | türkçe Program

Corona hits us refugees particularly hard. Above all, our sisters and brothers, our children, who are on the move at the borders of Europe in search of a safe place, are living in a nightmare. Our families and acquaintances whom we have had to leave behind in our countries of origin are, in addition to the pandemic, perhaps additionally affected by wars or the economic consequences of the pandemic or sanctions. They are struggling to survive every day. Maybe they are also affected by the persecution of dictatorial regimes that forbid them to organise and stand up for their rights as workers, women, pupils and students or teachers.

Call of the initiative in remembrance of Oury Jalloh

Dear friends, dear sisters and brothers,

7 January 2021 marks 16 years since the gruesome death of Oury Jalloh. He was unlawfully detained by the police in Dessau, maltreated, chained hand and foot and burned to death in the tiled cell No. 5 of the police station in Dessau. On the same day, the lies and cover-up attempts by the Dessau police and public prosecutor's office and their connected organs began. All questions from the family, acquaintances, friends of Oury Jalloh were dismissed. The burning questions prompted us to formulate them publicly in an organised way.
