Refugee Black Box – The irrepressible voice and power of the afflicted
„Refugee Black Box – The irrepressible voice and power of the afflicted“ is a political experiment and a process to re-create our alternative space and critical enlightenment, through the Refugee Political Solidarity X-Ray on the decades of refugee struggles against the centuries of colonial injustice of deportation.
The concept is a process of inspirations from struggles like: The Caravan Internation Refugee Congress Jena – „Unite against Deportation and Social Exclusion“ – the beginning of the Residenzpflicht campaign in 2000, Oury Jalloh’s death in Police Cell No 5 in Dessau and the ensuing court trial in 2008, the Caravan Festival on Colonial Injustice in Jena 2010, Break Isolation Refugee Camp in Erfurt with the preparation of the Refugee Protest March from Würzburg to Berlin in 2012 and the Refugee International Tribunal in Berlin in 2013, which were organized by The VOICE Refugee Forum and The Caravan for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants. It is in the spirit of continuity of The VOICE Refugee Forum struggles since 1994 from the Mühlhausen refugee camp.
Refugee Black Box actions are planned to expose the ignorance of the society on the abuses and crimes of deportation regimes and to make the colonial injustices of the system visible.
Like in a tribunal, it is about charging the system and giving a platform to the afflicted to bring their own charges to public awareness. In addition, it has elements of a festival with its cultural space. The idea parodies the black boxes of aircrafts. It contains sensitive information that are vital to its functionality. The afflicted can submit their charges and these would form the basis of the next protest actions against the pervasive colonial injustice.
Deportation and its corruption of legal systems and regimes are criminal. Stop the deportation system! Fight racist nationalism!
Lets shake things up! - Bring down the deportation regimes! Stop the deportations!
