Call for the 14th anniversary to commemorate Oury Jalloh

Call For The 14th Anniversary Demo to Commemorate #OuryJalloh on January 7, 2019 in #Dessau / #Saxony-Anhalt

On behalf of the survivors of the Diallo family, especially in the name of the parents Mariama Djombo Diallo and Elhadji Boubakar Diallo, who died without being informed and getting answers to their legitimate questions about the cruel assassination of their son Oury Jalloh, we invite all solidarians, activists, initiatives and organizations to our annual demonstration to commemorate Oury Jalloh at January 7, 2019 to Dessau, German territory.

January 7, 2019
13:00: Opening gathering
Meeting point: Main train station (Hbf) Dessau-Roßlau | forecourt
14:00: Start of the demonstration
.. 14 years without clearing up
.. 14 years without apology to the bereaved
.. 14 years without acknowledgment of the overwhelming evidence
, , 14 years without justice
.. 14 years without compensation
Police, judiciary and politicians have denied the investigation of the murder of Oury Jalloh in police custody for 14 years now and also denied the investigation of at least two more deaths in the Dessau police station.
An allegedly independent judiciary has been protecting policemen from the Dessau police station for 14 years, even though they know that the police officers who have been there for many years arbitrarily and illegally held people in police custody, tortured and even killed them …
The handling of state authorities with the case of Oury Jalloh has opened a window that shows the unity of powers of the Federal Republic of Germany:
In the Oury-Jalloh complex , the impunity of the perpetrators resulted in at least two other murder cases in Dessau police station following the apparent murder of Hans-Jürgen Rose in December 1997 : Mario Bichtemann in October 2002 and Oury Jalloh in January 2005.
The deaths of Hans-Jürgen Rose and Mario Bichtemann also did not result in any changes in this inhumane system of illegal deprivation of liberty and torture as a result of the capped investigations of the prosecutor’s office in Dessau-Roßlau and the higher management levels of the Dessau Police Department.
Although three people were murdered, the perpetrators remained undisturbed in office. At the same time, the police chiefs responsible for Dessau were all recruited undisturbed into the highest positions of the Interior Ministry of Saxony-Anhalt.
The NSU complexPolice Murders of Blacks * People of Color * People from Kola Bankole 1994 to Aamir Ageeb 1999 , Ndeye Mareame Sarr 2000 , Achidi John 2001 , Laye Alama Conde 2005 , Dominique Koumadio 2006 , Christy Schwundeck 2011 to Amos Thomas 2016 , the police murder of Halim Dener in 1994 and many other people, as well as the numerous unexplained deaths in judicial custody – such as Yaya Jabbie’s 2016 , Jaber al-Bakr’s 2016 or Amad Ahmad’s who burned to death in a prison cell in the prison in Kleve in September 2018  – have much in common: Investigations are delayed and obstructed, evidence manipulated, disposed or not secured at all, accusations ineligibly minimized or unlevied. If, in exceptional cases, there should be legal proceedings against the perpetrators* of the state, the court proceedings are a farce. Hand in hand judges and public prosecutors guarantee the widest possible impunity of perpetrators who are working for the state.
The need to organize independent control and reconnaissance structures
A state can not and does not want to control itself, let alone judge itself. Ultimately, this state of mind can only be counteracted by civil society-organized control mechanisms and the establishment of independent reconnaissance structures that function on the basis of solidary networks. In the NSU- and in the Oury-Jalloh complex, the essential findings were enforced with research of civil society and donation-based investigations as well as reports by international experts and against the resistance of all powers of this state. By continuing to set up an international independent commission to clarify the truth about the death of Oury Jalloh, we continue our reconnaissance  work – independent and unimpressed by judicial or political decisions in the months and years to come.
We have watched or investigated the impunity for perpetrators in the service of the state as well as the passive and active support of crimes against migrant lives long enough in Germany … 
… It is time for changes!
Following the impressive attendance of the last two demonstrations on January 7, 2017 and 2018, we hope for continuity in public support, solidarity and determination to commemorate Oury Jalloh 2019!
Never forgive never Forget!
No further casualties!
Control by civil society against state abuse of violence!
Clarification of the  Oury-Jalloh Complex! – Support an International Independent Commission!
Oury Jalloh – That was murder!

The VOICE, Our VOICE, will always be ours and can never be silenced!

24 years of active resistance by The VOICE Refugee Forum in Germany is testimony to the fact that the self-organization of affected people is the only viable alternative in the struggle of the oppressed. Our aim is and remains to end the fears and insecurities associated with the status of a refugee in Germany and throughout Europe.

On the occasion of the 24th anniversary of „The VOICE Refugee Forum“, we will organize 4 days of socio-cultural and political events in Jena from Thursday, October 4th to Sunday, October 7th.
Once again we will address the inalienable human rights of freedom of movement and resettlement and the importance of continued self-organisation of refugees by identifying and exposing our criminalisation through state persecution: the focus will be on the analysis and description of deportations as crimes and the structural cruelty of deportation detention facilities. We will install symbolic BLACK BOXES, analysing, understanding and furthering our struggles.

The self-organization and networking by the directly affected of the collective oppression is the community and it is also the weapon to self-determination of refugees and Migrants.
Please join us for a life decided by our quest for a free society, equality and human dignity.

Share Our Appeal To Refugee Communities And Other Migrants! Let’s become the Ambassadors Of Our Community Networks. Your liberation is bound up with mine! Our Liberty is bound together!
We call on you to endorse and symbolize the Stop deportation struggle with the refugee Black Box. We want to revive the political tools of our struggles on related topics „disrupt the persecution and eu authoritarianism“ against refugees and migrants.

The struggles of refugee resistance and justice is by our continuity in Germany. Support the refugee political movement.

To all Refugee Activists, Asylum Seekers and Migrants:
We are calling on refugees/Asylum Seekers and Migrants to build trustworthy Communities to strengthen our solidarity against the continuous inhumane treatments in Germany and Europe. Self-organization goes beyond telling our stories and our problems to the others. Its objective should be empowering through an independent political platform and self-determination in the refugee/Migrant community with refugee/Migrant activists and for the refugees/Migrants.

Refugees‘ Endless Struggles Against
Deportation | Colonial Injustice | Racism | For Freedom of Movement
Contact us for further information on how to join and become active in our Communities and the NETWORK. You can also inform us about your demands for justice and struggles against refugee repressions and injustice in your localities in the regions of Germany.

Good news: Magsud A. versus the German Deportation Machinery 2:0 for Magsud Victory






Magsud A. versus the German Deportation Machinery 2:0 for Magsud Victory
Disrupt the German Deportation Machinery and the persecution of refugees by the authoritarian state!
Read below on the dubious persecution of refugees in Apolda and the recent struggle of Dr. Magsud Aghayev against the Foreigner’s Office in Apolda and the Bundesamt in Nürnberg
Dr. Magsud Aghayev and his son Rafael got their residence permit back after 3 years (M) and 9 years (R) without permanent residence from the Foreigners’ Office in Apolda!!! This is really great news because their defiance and determination in the face of persecution and intimidation by the state is once again proof that we can resist and win even against the monster.
Both of them arrived in Germany in 2005 as father and son. Rafael, his son, is the father of an 8-year-old boy who lives with his German mother in Apolda. Dr. Magsud and his son were transferred to Apolda after he led the struggle with other refugees to close down the infamous Katzhütte isolation camp in 2008. The struggle of Dr Magsud for the rights of refugees did not end with the closure of the notorious Katzhütte camp nor in Apolda. As Dr. Magsud so often stated „We will fight till the end“.
Dr. Magsud was granted the right to stay in Germany in 2010 by the administrative court of Meiningen without further deportation threat. In 2012, Maqsud's permanent residence permits were withheld and substituted with normal white A4-papers renewal for him and his son without justification with bi-monthly to three months maximum extensions. All the while, Magsud was being intimidated and criminalized, persecuted and threatened with court processes, and by the deportation deal between the Foreigner’s Office and BAMF. This deal was meant to review his positive court decision to enable the nullification of his residence permit granted by the court.
In his struggle he had to face many awkward and funny situations:
As a result of these shenanigans Magsud and Miloud from The VOICE Refugee Forum
went to BAMF Hermsdorf in Thueringen in Febuary 2018, where they were told that the
BAMF Nürnberg was in charge of his case. So Magsud tried to contact Nurnberg but to no avail. A delegation was planned by Magsud to meet with the officials of BAMF in Nürnberg on 2nd March 2018. This was without notification because all attempts to reach them on phone before had failed.
Our delegates from Thueringen informed the officials at the BAMF Nürnberg that we needed an answer to Magsud’s situation and that the visit will not be the end of the protest. The BAMF officials then promised to see to the case but said that the official in charge was actually in Hermsdorf. Yet, they refused to name the official in BAMF in Hermsdorf when asked. They responded that the officials were secret. In the so-called rechtsstaat, the name of a public official suddenly becomes a secret. Bravo!!! Wonder they say shall never end!!!
No official in the office of the Bundesamt directly involved in his case was known by name and there was no official letter or other correspondence. It is important to know that the right to asylum is of political and public interest and for the interest of the refugee community. There must not be any secret about it.
Shortly after Magsud led the delegation of refugees and activists on the 2nd March 2018 to the BAMF in Nürnberg the Foreigner’s Office informed Rafael and Magsud in the middle of March on the success of their struggles against the Foreigner’s Office and the BAMF. They would get back their stay permits with four years extension. We never doubted!
The most fascinating lesson for us all here was Magsud’s self-determination to fight politically. He refused to bow or solicit paternalistic support but instead relied on the time tested solidarity and the overriding common interest that is at the heart of our struggle for justice. He could not afford to succumb to the discriminatory bureaucrazy that intimidated, criminalised and persecuted him without any reason other than to punish him, suppress his voice and silence him for his fight for justice. He refused to take a lawyer for his political protest and his unyielding determination coupled with the ironclad solidarity from fellow refugees amongst others saw the case of BAMF and the Foreigners’ Office collapse like a pack of cards and a hoax that it was.
It is obvious Dr. Magsud has been persecuted because of his political activism in the refugee migrants community, The VOICE and the Caravan, and in the break deportation network in Thueringen. He committed no crime, activism is no crime and we’re all supremely proud of him! He is a worthy example to young and new refugees in Germany and the message is clear: If you do not fight for your right, the so-called rechtsstaat will deny your rights! Basta!!!
After three years of fighting, Magsud and his son Rafael got his residence permit back!
"I will fight till the end" he says, and we reply, “We will fight with you all the way!!!
We are proud of every supporter as we congratulate especially the refugee activists from Bamberg refugee camp who were very motivated to support Magsud A during his delegation meeting in the BAMF in Nuremberg on the 02.03.2018.
More information on the persection and criminalisation of Magsud in
Apolda will be televised by the community!
