[creative-radio] More than 15.000 died - A fatal realities of fortress Europe

 

Prosecuted for saving the lives of refugees

The case of Cap Anamur president Elias Bierdel and his crew
By Stefan Steinberg
9 October 2009

"Supported by NATO naval units, overloaded and ancient boats are stopped
and forced back into African territorial waters. The corpses of those who
die attempting to flee eventually wash up on the beaches of Europe.
According to Bierdel, the total number of documented casualties on
European borders during the past decade total 15,000, but he describes
this figure as the "tip of the iceberg," with the real numbers likely to
be far higher. More than 400 such deaths at sea have been reported so far
this year."

African Masquerade - Masks Parade and Music in Jena, 4th - 6th June, 2010

Appeal for a Caravan Festival – For the Rights of Refugees and Migrants in
Europe

Africa is not far from us – Unite Against Colonial Injustice

Save Lives: - Protest against the brutality and deaths of the refugees and
migrants by the EU - Frontex and the barbaric policies of Fortress Europe

A Political "Funeral" in remembrance of the refugees and migrants who died
in the sea and at the borders of Europe, and those persecuted,
criminalized, deported and brutalized by the police and the fortress
Europe policies: the victims of the consequences of national and
international injustice in Germany and in the fortress within Europe.

We will not allow any of the victims to have died without a trace.
Remembering also the horrors that our families have endured and conscious
of the fact the more will die, we will reveal a "monument" during the
festival in Jena for all victims of Frontex and the barbaric policies of
Fortress Europe.

There will be blocks of African Masquarede dancers and Music Parade
(during of the Festival) - African Masquerades are divine arts and
performance during special traditional festivals which in west and central
Africa are also celebrated in cases of disasters to seek for protection
and solidarity.

Stop the deaths and the persecutions of refugees and migrants in Germany -
Europe.

rights of refugees and migrants in Germany.
