Germany – Black Lives Matter (Berlin)

ENGLISH: #BlackLivesMatter Founded in 2012 after the violent death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in the United States, the movement has international significance: Despite specific issues in different countries, the principle of “Black Lives Matter” makes racist social structures visible worldwide.Racism is an everyday life experience for Black people and is not only reflected in verbal insults and physical violence.

This also applies to Germany.The Black Lives Matter month in Berlin stands with its program of events and the protest march for a lasting change of our society and against the concealment of racism. Silence, too, is violence.People in this country experience racial discrimination on a personal and institutional level. This ranges from racial profiling, legislation such as changes in law enforcement acts, street naming, school education, but also by the media, to dealing with flight and the access to labor and housing markets.In addition to all these topics, there are current events which show us that a continuous intervention by the population is required.

These include incidents from around the world, such as the enslavement of Black people in Libya and the ongoing police violence in the US and europe-wide, but also specifically in Germany, such as the serious deficits in shelters for refugees, racist attacks and racist incidents in educational institutions etc.We are not willing to accept and hush up racism – the violation of our human dignity and rights.

The Stuttgarter group "Querdenken 711" has organized several protests over this weekend in Berlin under the motto „Tag der Freiheit“. These protests are supported and promoted by known right-wing personalities and organizations, conspiracy theories supporters and so-called coronavirus deniers from all over Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France. They have been protesting the corona safety measurements.

For the awareness of our Black communities we want to share this information with you. Please take good care of each other, alert your friends and families. Have also in mind that there is a high risk of infection during the protests.

We cannot guarantee the safety of Black people, which is why we do not call for counter-demonstrations.

If you still want to protest there will be several counter-protests, for more information look here: https://berlin-gegen-nazis.de/rechtsoffene-kundgebung-im-tiergarten/ and https://www.facebook.com/events/326341761831060/

Gerechtigkeit Für Hussam Fadl.

Samstag 04.07.2020, um 15:00 Uhr.
Platz der Luftbrücke 6, 12101 Berlin

On the 27th of September 2016 Hussam Fadl was shot in the back and killed by Berlin police officers. So far there has been no indictment of the shooters. Only one year remains until the statute of limitations for this case expires. This will mean all prospects of legal proceedings are lost and police have once again killed a person without any consequences under criminal law.
.
That is why we must increase the pressure on investigative authorities and raise public awareness for this case. Come to the protest, bring your family, friends and colleagues, and demand:
⁃A complete investigation into the killing of Hussam Fadl!
⁃The formal criminal charges of the prosecution to be brought against the police officers responsible for the death of Hussam Fadl!
⁃The immediate suspension of the accused police officers!
.
Police brutality exists everywhere and so does resistance!

IF YOU GO - PLEASE STAY SAFE! Follow the COVID Safety Regulations !!

 

FRENCH :
FrançaisFondé en 2012 à la suite de la mort violente, aux Etats-Unis, de Trayvon Martin, âgé de 17 ans, le mouvement a pris une signification internationale. Malgré la spécificité des problèmes dans chaque pays, le principe de « Black Lives Matter » rend les structures racistes visibles partout dans le monde.

Le racisme est une expérience quotidienne pour les personnes noires, et pas uniquement du fait d’insultes verbales ou de violences physiques. Cela est aussi vrai en Allemagne.Le mois Black Lives Matter à Berlin propose un programme d’événements et une manifestation pour un changement durable de notre société et contre la dissimulation du racisme. Le silence est également une forme de violence.L’expérience de discriminations raciales dans ce pays se fait tant au niveau personnel qu’institutionnel. Ces discriminations concernent le contrôle au faciès, les changements législatifs portant sur les pouvoirs de la police, le nom des rues, le système scolaire de même que les médias, la gestion de l’exil ou l’accès à l’emploi et au logement.
A cela s’ajoute un flot d’évènements qui montrent qu’une intervention continue de la population est nécessaire. A travers le monde, l’esclavage de personnes noires en Libye, les violences policières aux Etats-Unis et dans toute l’Europe. En Allemagne plus spécifiquement, le déficit de structures d’accueil pour réfugié.e.s, les attaques racistes et les incidents racistes dans le système éducatif etc.Nous refusons d’accepter le racisme- c’est-à-dire la violation de notre dignité humaine et de nos droits.
