democracy: collective dictatory

The German Judiciaries and administrative authorities work to protect police system, its brutality, its crimes, its abuses and its power of political repression against the refugee community.

How the legal system works here in Germany could be observed once again yesterday for one more time – it is not about justice but moreover to protect especially police its brutality while executing racist laws and duty. For this reason the courts even join in to criminalize in an institutionalized fashion.

Yesterday was a very long day of prejudice and injustice – the court trial almost took 8 hours. It was another new experience for me to understand how this system can punish and criminalize you at the same long time and again and again.

Miloud: „It’s Racism!“

Am Donnerstag, den 28. Mai 2015, sollte ab 10:20 Uhr eine Verhandlung gegen Miloud Lamar Cheriff vor dem Amtsgericht Arnstadt wegen des Tatvorwurfs der Beleidigung stattfinden. Für die Verhandlung ordnete Richter Türpitz Sicherheitskontrollen an, Besucher*innen wurden nach Waffen und ähnlichem durchsucht und mussten ein Ausweisdokument vorzeigen – für Polizisten galt dies nicht. In Arnstadt hatte man wohl nicht damit gerechnet, dass das betreffende Verfahren sich über den gewohnten Alltag hinaus zu einer Besonderheit entwickeln sollte.

Eingeplant wurden exakt 40 Minuten. Aufgrund der Sicherheitskontrollen konnte jedoch erst 10:50 Uhr mit der Verhandlung begonnen werden, einschließlich der Unterbrechungen durch ein Rechtsgespräch zwischen den Verfahrensbeteiligten endete sie 13:10 Uhr.

Warum mich nun die Verhandlung von der Einschätzung des Richters ab?

DIE VERFOLGUNG DURCH DIE „RESIDENZPFLICHT“ FINDET WEITER STATT – DIE ANGEBLICHE ABSCHAFFUNG IST EINE INFAMY LÜGE !!!
Flüchtlinge aus Schwäbisch Gmünd befinden im zivilen Ungehorsam gegen Freiheitsberaubung, Einschränkung der Bewegungsfreiheit und Verfolgung von Flüchtlingen in Deutschland.

Wir weigern uns die “Strafe” zu bezahlen, weil wir die “Residenzpflicht” als Verletzung unseres Grundrechts auf Bewegungsfreiheit und als rassistische Diskriminierung ansehen.

WIR FORDERN DIE SOFORTIGE AUFGEBEN ALLER STRAFEN GEGEN RESIDENZPFLICHTSVERLETZUNG !!!

Refugees from Schwäbisch Gmünd on civil disobedience against imprisonment, Restriction of Movement and refugee persecution in Germany
Leke Aremu, Farook Khan, Raphael Paul, Frankline Ndam

We fled from persecution from our various home countries but still the same persecution continues in Germany. We refugees arriving in Germany are already criminalized at the borders by forceful finger printing before our names are even known.
Our political protest started in February 2014 when we discovered the violation of our privacy by being exposed to CCTV camera observation (Close Circuit Tele Vision) that had been installed at the entrance of the isolated refugee Lager in Schwäbisch Gmünd without prior notification. We sent an inmate delegate to the responsible authorities to let them know how we feel about the CCTV camera positioned opposite the entrance of the lager. We stated that it gives us the precarious impression to be held under surveillance control which makes us feel to be prisoners in fear and insecurity to scare us from Self-Organization in the isolated refugee Lager. But the district officials of Schwäbisch Gmünd refused to accept our demand for the removal of the CCTV camera…

Deportation Mechanism in 2015

As long as deportation is still functionable for state and being cultural perform, believing in saftyness is unavailable.
Refugees are the direct affected by wars, sanctions, occupations, corruption and romantic terrorism of Europe and specially Germany. Refugees are touching the fear and inscurity in deep dark side of cities and towns. The lively life of Refugees is treated and judged by paragraphs packed in letters from masked offices to be wasted.
How much this awful image is possible to be realized by society?
How much this craped picture can projected by mass media?
How much this presented welcome culture is real?

Break deportation action in Erfurt
Chun. K informed by letter about her deport date and time at 22.02.2015, 22:00. Information comes further to other refugees and activists and this action organized spontanously.

In Memory of Khaled

Rally organised by African Survival in Hamburg,
Friday, 30th. January 2015.
Khaled Idris Bahray was Eritrean Refugee was murdered in Dresden.
Since then Dresden Police and state persecuter in different statments announced their own stories about his death.

part of their statment:

In memory of KHALED IDRIS BAHRAY – Rights and Safety for Refugees!

Khaled Bahray was killed in Dresden on the 13th January 2015. ASUIHA e.V. expresses, in solidarity with his friends and family, our deep sadness in losing our 20 year old Eritrean brother.

The behaviour of Germany’s police force in this case, as in countless past cases, will serve as a distressing reminder of our challenges as African migrants. We therefore will not grieve in silence, but loudly demand safety for all.

Why Trust the Police?

The case of Khaled shows the institutional racism of the German police- who refused to see a dead African migrant with multiple stab wounds as in any way suspicious. This kind of misconduct is not without precedent, with even two African deaths in one day at the hands of the police ttp://www.mdr.de/sachsen/toter-asylbewerber-dresden106.html

OURY JAhLLOH- Burnt alive in a police cell (Dessau, 07/01/2005)

Hands and feet tied to a mattress in a police cell, Oury burnt alive after a fire broke out. The supervising police officer, busy with a phone conversation, ignored cries for help and the fire alarm. Only in later investigations was a lighter conveniently found- not during earlier searches. The charges against the two officers responsible were dropped in 2008 due to lack of evidence.

LAYE-ALAMA CONDE- Tortured and killed in police custody (Bremen, 07/01/2005)

Laye-Alama was forcibly tied to a metal examination stretcher with handcuffs and cable ties as the police doctor gave Conde an emetic and water to vomit out cocaine pellets he was accused of swallowing. This mistreatment led to Conde entering into a coma from which he did not recover. His lungs ran full of water. The charges against the police doctor were dropped!

The police are not following their own rules!

And so ASUIHA e.V. remains committed to exposing and attacking this growing hegemony of institutional racism in Germany in the name of justice, in the name of equality and in the memory of those killed. EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

Death in Cell #5
[Column written 4/3/07] © 2007 Mumia Abu-Jamal
A Sierra Leonean refugee named Oury Jalloh burned to death in Cell No. 5 in the city of Dessau, Germany.
The date: January 7, 2005
Police at the station have called it a simple case of suicide.
His friends and fellows have raised serious and disturbing questions, such as: how do you tie your hands and feet, and burn yourself to death?
Since that day to this, friends of Jalloh and anti-racist organizers have been trying to build a movement against racist violence, often perpetrated by the State, especially against African refugees like Oury Jalloh.
Jalloh was 21 years old.
His case has raised that of similar incidents, of clashes between Black immigrants, and the German police. Like that of Dominique Kuomadio, another African refugee, who was shot and killed by German police on April 14, 2006.
When the German General Public Prosecutor was given the case, the conclusion was all but pre-ordained: self-defense.
Anti-racist Germans and refugee support groups there have organized to demand and fund an x-ray of Oury Jalloh’s corpse. This x-ray found that he suffered a broken nose, and serious trauma to his middle ear.
Earlier requests for such an examination were turned down by the State Prosecutor—who said it wasn’t necessary.
And while the cops who may’ve murdered—burned to death—a Black immigrant in a holding cell, face an almost certain impunity, activists who have spoken out against the cops are being sued now for libel and defamation.
Remember Oury Jalloh!

Mumia Abu-Jamal über Oury Jalloh (Deutsche Übersetzung)
Tod in Zelle Nr.5
Der Flüchtling aus Sierra Leone namens Oury Jalloh verbrannte in seiner Zelle in der deutschen Stadt Dessau am 7.Januar, 2005. Die Polizisten der Station bezeichneten es als Selbstmord. Seine Freunde und Kumpel haben einige bedrohliche Fragen erhoben: WIE kann man selbst seine Hände und Füße zusammenbinden und sich dann mit tödlichem Ausgang in Brand setzen?
Seitdem haben Freunde von Yalloh und antirassistische Organisationen versucht, eine Bewegung gegen rassistische Gewalt zu bilden, die oft vom Staat durchgeführt wird. Besonders gegen afrikanische Flüchtlinge wie Oury Jalloh.
Jalloh war 21 Jahre alt. Und antirassistische Deutsche und Migrantengruppen haben sich organisiert, um einen Röntgenaufnahme von Jallohs Leichnam zu fordern und zu finanzieren, wobei sie feststellten, dass er eine gebrochene Nase und Verletzungen am Mittelohr hatte . Frühere Nachfragen betreffs einer Untersuchung deswegen bei offiziellen Stellen wurden mit der Begründung niedergeschlagen, es wäre nicht nötig.
Und während die Polizisten,die womöglich einen schwarzen Migranten ermordet haben, zu Tode verbrannt in seiner Zelle, höchstwahrscheinlich Straffreiheit bekommen werden, erhalten Aktivisten, die die Schergen angeklagt haben, Klagen wegen Verleumdung.
