"Racism is when it doesn't count. When they don't count. When one can do anything with them, it doesn't matter what , because they are not people like us. Do you see? Not our kind. When we can make use of them as we please, without losing face, dignity, honor. That's what racism is."
- Romain Gary, Au-delà de cette limite votre ticket n'est plus valable
Save instead of talking!
Under this motto, Sea-Watch has been successfully sailing since 2015 and has been involved in the rescue of over 38,000 people. True to the same motto, it also took them to the skies over the Mediterranean in early 2017, where they have been coordinating rescue operations with the Moonbird, and documenting the European failures with regards to sea rescue.
At the end of 2017, a friend and machinist from Sea-Watch 3 asked if we could collect money for Sea-Watch. We wanted to help so now, here we are, at the beginning of our third solo tour. Why?
Because we do not accept the deadly European foreclosure and asylum policy, in which Germany is heavily involved. Because we feel committed to the act of solidarity, which is an anti-fascist stance by default, and are convinced that it works best when we talk about grievances as well as new opportunities - and pool our strengths to work together.
We invite you to turn up from 9 p.m. onward, to find out more about solidarity initiatives like ours in your city, and to volunteers including Sea-Watch about self-empowerment. But that's not all: afterwards we combine the celebration of the beautiful life as we like it, with the financial help of others. Come one, come all!
Assuming that there is no "police operation" this time around, it will go a little something like this...
✾✾ 9:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. ✾✾
Discussion: European exclusion policy vs. Human rights
We speak to Sea-Watch, Seebrücke Berlin, contact and advice center for refugees and migrants. We demand: family reunification for everyone, citizens asylum Berlin and Corasol about the paths that people have to go and that remain with us so as not to pass out.
Afterward there is dancing!
Die dritte Sea-Watch & Friends Solitour ist wieder in Berlin und ohne Polizeieinsatz läuft es so: Mit dem Vortrag "Europäische Ausgrenzungspolitik vs. Menschenrechte" und der Arbeit der Initiativen zeigen wir die Wege auf, die Menschen gehen müssen und die uns bleiben, um dabei nicht ohnmächtig zuzusehen. Danach wird getanzt. <3
