AFA NOISE DEMO AGAINST RACISM

AFA NOISE DEMO AGAINST RACISM from AИTiORDE on Vimeo.

text by afa ]]] Loud protest against Le Pen and Wilders
About 60 people protested against the visit of French extreme-right politician Marine Le Pen in Den Haag. She was here to talk to Geert Wilders about European cooperation.

A loud cacophony was provided by drums, horns and an air raid siren. With this noise protest, the anti-fascists made it clear that they were not pleased with Le Pen’s visit and the racist ideology of the Front National and the PVV. The sound was audible inside of Parliament.
Several speeches were given emphasizing the worrisome and dangerous trend of the rise of the extreme right throughout Europe. Their cooperation in the European Parliament increases this threat. Racists also feel empowered by this development. This was also visible during the PVV demonstration last September where members of every Dutch neo-nazi and fascist group were present. A participant at this demonstration even gave the Hitler-salute. Banners were carried with the text “Own Volk First” and the Prince’s Flag (made infamous by the NSB) was carried by several participants. Instead of doing something about this, several PVV members of parliament wore lapel-pins with this flag to work several days later.

And that is the danger, the rise in popularity of the far right gives them the idea that they can openly spread their hate and put a deed to their word. That is why it is important to keep raising your voice against racism.
After several hours of making noise, Le Pen’s and Wilder’s press conference began at 15:30. At that moment, the riot police (ME) attacked the demonstrators, supposedly because someone had said something insulting. Instead of speaking to the spokesperson of the demonstration, the ME began to beat people immediately.

Several people were injured. Someone was beaten bloody on his head with something that looked like the back of a pepper-spray can while he has already subdued. Afterwards, he was thrown on the ground and two riot police sat on top of him. A woman was hit with a night stick on her mouth and now has a crack in her tooth. Other people were hit on their arms, heads, and mouths. 3 people were arrested. According to the police, one for hindering an arrest, and the other two for insulting an officer.
Not then! Not now! Never again fascism!

tydens een lawaaidemonstratie van anti-fascistische actie afa tegen de komst van de franse politika marine le pen van front national kon de smeris zich niet inhouden.. nadat er volgens de mobiele eenheid gescholden zou zyn sloegen ze met hun wapenstokken om zich heen waarby meerdere demonstranten gewond raakten en arresteerden ze 3 personen wegens belediging en belemmering van arrestatie..

tot dan toe was de lawaaidemonstratie aan het plein en de lange poten vreedzaam maar zeer luidruchtig verlopen.. ruim 2 uur maakten aktivisten herrie met fluitjes toeters megafoons sirene gejoel en gedrum. tot in de tweede kamer was het protest te horen.. niet geheel toevallig verstoorde de mobiele eenheid de demonstratie op hetzelfde moment dat de extreem-rechtse boegbeelden marine le pen en wilders een perskonferentie begonnen in het naastgelegen perscentrum nieuwspoort.. na de geweldadige interruptie van de juten kwam de lawaaidemonstratie weer op gang maar inmiddels was de sfeer verziekt en waren veel demonstranten afgehaakt..

WAAR BLIJFT DE HOLLANDSE OPSTAND?

WAAR BLIJFT DE HOLLANDSE OPSTAND? from AИTiORDE on Vimeo.

1 november 2013 vond de regiezitting plaats van het Hoger Beroep van Joke Kaviaar in de zaak waarin ze wordt beschuldigd van ‘opruiing’ door vier opinie artikelen over het migratiebeleid. De rechtbank veroordeelde haar op 22 januari tot vier maanden onvoorwaardelijke gevangenisstraf vanwege die artikelen.

Een daarvan is nu op poster gezet. Het is de eerste poster van de reeks van vier in de aanloop naar de inhoudelijk behandeling van de zaak, en deze poster werd vandaag vooraf aan de regiezitting voor het gebouw van het Hof in Amsterdam uitgedeeld. De uitdelers en Joke werden op de weg naar het Hof verrast door een vlakbij het Hof geplaatste leus: “Ontsteek het vuur van verzet! Tegen censuur van mensen & meningen!” Klasse. Dat begon vast goed.

De poster verscheen zaterdag 26 oktober, is op te halen bij het Fort van Sjakoo in Amsterdam en bij De Rooie Rat in Utrecht en wordt inmiddels in diverse steden geplakt. In Zaandam meldde het Noord Hollands Dagblad dat de politie er één had weggescheurd die op de gevel van de krant hing. Omdat het opruiing is, aldus de politiewoordvoerder.

Vandaag bij het Hof liet de politie vooraf aan de regiezitting het uitdelen ongemoeid, ookal was het uitdelen vantevoren aangekondigd. Veel mensen, ook toevallige passanten en andere mensen die het gerechtsgebouw in of uit gingen, namen de posters aan. Missie geslaagd. De posters mochten alleen niet de rechtszaal mee in, en ook niet mee op de met pantserglas beveiligde publieke tribune van de rechtszaal. Ze moesten worden afgegeven. Stel je voor dat het Hof ze zou zien!

commemoration of refugee activism in amsterdam

commemoration of refugee activism in amsterdam from AИTiORDE on Vimeo.

4 sep 2013 — refugees of the refugees action group recht op bestaan from den haag joined the refugees of the action group we are here from amsterdam to commemorate one year of refugee activism in amsterdam. started by a few activists on september 4 2012 at the garden of the diaconie in amsterdam and grew large as a refugee camp kamp osdorp with over 100 refugees. when they were forced to leave the tent camp they took an empty building de vluchtkerk from where they started dozens of protest actions in amsterdam and other places to fight for basic human rights and to show dutch society how bad the situation is for people without papers.

september 4 2013 refugees and supporters took al long walk in amsterdam to go back to the place where it all started one year ago. unfortunately not many refugees showed up because of divisiones between them. many of them have conflicts with each other. if the refugees of recht op bestaan from den haag had not participated in the protest march it would have been a tiny commemoration.

QUEERS AGAINST BORDERS

QUEERS AGAINST BORDERS from AИTiORDE on Vimeo.

~ not in our name – breaking down borders – no one is illegal ~

on sunday the 2nd of june 2013 queers demonstrated in the center of amsterdam against the violent and exclusionary politics of borders and specifically the ongoing criminalization of people without papers in the netherlands..

Queeristan March 2013: Breaking Borders.

Behind a public discourse of tolerance, the Dutch government hides its criminal face regarding the treatment of undocumented migrants. The Netherlands has one of the most restrictive and inhumane migrant policies in Europe.

The most obvious expressions are the migrant detention centers: jails which the Dutch government started building since 2003 to imprison undocumented people. The Netherlands has the highest percentage of people in detention centers in Europe. In 2011 alone 6104 migrants were jailed here, among them hundreds of minors and people who have been tortured and trafficked in their country of origin. The punitive rules in the deportation jails are more strict then for those convicted under criminal law, with more restrictive visitation rules and the impossibility of work and education. Human rights and activist groups have pointed to the severe psychological consequences for the migrants, several of them have already attempted and actually committed suicide inside the prisons.

Whereas migrants are now imprisoned as a form of administrative detention (‘to await the results of their asylum procedure or their deportation’), the Dutch government is currently debating the actual criminalization of ‘illegality’. A law proposal which has been part of the governmental agreement between the two ruling parties VVD (right wing liberals) and PVDA (the labour party). This law would be an obvious violation of international treaties that try to safeguard the universal right to access to education and healthcare and would increase the vulnerability of people without papers to various forms of exploitation and abuse. This law would also criminalize the hundreds of migrants who are currently living on the streets as their request for residence in the Netherlands has been declined, but their country of origin doesn’t accept their return.
Many activist and human right groups resist this ongoing criminalization of migration. From groups trying to struggle against forced deportation to human rights groups visiting the prisons to people squatting alternative housing for migrants in the streets. Also the migrants themselves are protesting, even from within the jails. Since last April this year, dozens of imprisoned migrants entered a hunger and thirst strike to protest their inhumane treatment. Their protest was met with repression: the spokesperson was put in isolation, strikers were physically abused and some deported after weeks of strike; in a court case the judge ruled the strikers can be forced to eat and force-fed. Still, some are on strike supported by activists at the gates of the jails.

Queeristan 2013 marches in solidarity with these struggles. As queers we resists and want to break down social and cultural binaries (male/female; straight/gay; black/white; migrant/non-migrant, etc) as we know from our own experiences that these binaries serve as a basis for discrimination, exclusion and marginalization. In a same way that we resist these social and cultural ‘borders’, we protest the violence exercised at the borders of the nation-state and the repressive policies and mechanisms that keep these borders in place. Additionally we protest the way in which currently the LGBT right discourse is instrumentalized by right wing group in their anti-migrant policies. These groups want us to believe that the ‘progressive Dutch society’ is under threat of homophobic migrants and that is why we need more strict migration policies. We resists this false duality: the Netherlands not a queer paradise and homophobia is not a phenomenon that arrives with migration.
