Many people have been killed by police and the racist system of Fortress Europe

On Racism, Police Brutality and Discrimi- nation in Germany. From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the 18. Dezember 2010 in the FSU, Carl-Zeiss Str. 3 in Jena, Germany.


    You are all cordially invited to the above named conference in Jena.

Scheduled for discussion are:

The Racist Integrations Debates and the Hate Campaign against Refugees and Migrants in Germany

Presentation of the position paper from the Wuppertal "Karawane" with Dr. Araz Ardehali and Ralf Santa Lorenco
    The Caravan for the rights of refugees and migrants in Germany - A nationwide network made up of refugees, migrants and antiracist groups.

In Memory of Oury Jalloh and the Victims and Deaths by racist Police Murder
    What we have learnt to do more is building the trust and confidence in our committments to networking for justice and political empowerment of all communities in the karawane groups from the campaign - Proposal for events on victims of police brutality will be presented for next years in each Caravan group in Germany.

    Despite, and perhaps because we do not expect any justice from the new trial in the Oury Jalloh murder, the trial must also be specially observed by an independent group of legal practitioners, human rights activists and affected persons. This Observation of the process is not to be understood as a legitimization of the cover-up done by the Court but as a delegation to document the trial and its results.

    We will follow both cases very critically and are still demanding truth, justice and compensation for the family of Oury Jalloh and :: Laye Alama Condé.

    The cases of Oury Jalloh and Laye Alama Condé are merely two cases that did not get justice in their judicial proceedings, but they are only a part of many cases of police brutality which ended with death; :: N'deye Mareame Sarr, :: Halim Dener, :: John Achidi, :: Zdravko Nikolov Dimitrov, :: Aamir Ageeb, :: Arumugasamy Subramaniam, :: Dominique Koumadio and many others are victims of the German police and its racist impunity. Majority of these other cases were not even brought to the Court.

    Almost 6 years after the bestial death of Oury Jalloh in cell No. 5 in Dessau we continue to say: Oury Jalloh - that was murder! and demand: Break the Silence! Truth! Justice! Compensation!
