One year after February 19 in Hanau. We accuse!

Aktuell
© Initiative 19. Februar Hanau
(Excerpt from: "One year after February 19 in Hanau. Chain of failure before, in and after the night of the crime / central open questions. Link to the entire text of the Initiative 19 February Hanau")

On February 19, 2021, it will be exactly one year since a right-wing extremist perpetrator shot and killed nine people for racist motives. Central questions about the course of events as well as the background of the crime are still open and a number of new contradictions have been added.

Last but not least: In mid-December, an article in Spiegel Online made public how the authorities had once again failed with regard to the father of the right-wing terrorist in the months following the crime. This text summarizes the current state of affairs.

Part 1: Before the attack: why did the perpetrator receive weapons possession cards? Why didn't prosecutors respond to his charges? Why were previous armed incidents in Hanau-Kesselstadt not solved? Related to this is the most important question: could the nine murders have been prevented on Feb. 19, 2020?

Part 2: On the night of the crime. Contrary to the official representations, according to which police and rescue operations as well as accompaniment and care of the victims had run almost optimally, a mixture of excessive demands, ignorance up to racist behavior reveals itself in the real police-authority proceeding. In addition at least technical failure comes with the accessibility of the Hanauer emergency numbers as well as unclear expirations with the police employment at the house of the assassin.

Part 3: The failure in the days, weeks and months after the attack. This begins with dealing with the relatives regarding the autopsies of the victims, continues with endangerment approaches when the father of the perpetrator returns.

Part 4: The father. Before the attack, on the night of the crime, and to this day. The inability or unwillingness of the authorities to deal adequately with racist denunciations, taunts and even death threats from the perpetrator's father.

In the last part, we formulate demands - as consequences, of which we can see almost nothing even one year after February 19, 2020.

Politicians talk about a "caesura after Hanau", but nothing will change with warm words and empty promises. Only a critical and unsparing reappraisal with concrete consequences in practice could prevent racist acts of murder in the future. "We want to do everything we can to ensure that February 19, 2020 is never repeated," say all relatives of the victims and survivors together. To continue with accusations and public pressure is our only way to make the Hanau murders a real break and thus force a "caesura from below."

The (Re)Construction of the World Online conference February 12-14, 2021

"The political in our time must start from the imperative to reconstruct the world together. For the idea of decolonisation to have any value on a planetary scale, it cannot start from the assumption that I am purer than my neighbour."

Achille Mbembe


The (Re)Construction of the World

Aid. Solidarity. Politics.

Online conference, 12-14 February 2021

Many crises are currently interlinking to form a global crisis, which is densified in the Corona pandemic. The collapse of the old world order and with it the disintegration of supra-state and multilateral structures, the intrusion of economy in every corner of life, the return of an authoritarian nation state, the climate crisis and the surrender of politics - all symptoms of this crisis are brought to the point by the virus.

The world crisis becomes inescapable and physical where the survival of thousands, sometimes even millions of people depend on the aid they receive or get refused. What kind of world do we live in when aid only stabilizes a world order that is becoming increasingly needy and desperate? And: What kind of world is this, where aid is only an expression of the inability to make the world different and better?

Aid today must testify about the world it encounters and give account to itself and others about its own experiences and deeds. We want to bring these experiences to the fore for political discussion.

But this cannot only be about the crisis, it must always be about its solution: at least about attempts for a solution. We do know from such approaches that they must be global, that there must be solutions for everyone without exception, if they are to be fair and therefore sustainable. And the first question to be answered by all of us is the one about the possibilities of ending a politics which mean the end of politics, because it gives up working on global problems and instrumentalizes aid as garbage collection for the global devastations of capitalism.

The discussion of the world experience gathered in the aid sector will trace the beginnings of a renewed politics in the practices of solidarity that appear in the global protests for climate justice, the transnational feminist and anti-racist movements, the local uprisings for democracy, human rights and a dignified life. From there, our conference "The (Re)Construction of the World" wants to define the relationship between aid, solidarity and politics from the promise we have made to ourselves in the Declaration of Human Rights: The promise of a global and social order in which the rights granted to us all would be fully realized.

Small Trade under pressure

Thu, 02.02.2021 20:00

The Rainbow Factory is running 4 online events on displacement and urban restructuring. The events will take place in February every Tuesday at 20:00.

The first event deals with commercial space. Commercial rents are rising. Small businesses are being squeezed out. Profit interests of real estate companies are taking precedence over the interests of the neighbourhoods. But there are more and more businesses that are fighting back. What are the possibilities of resistance? Are there ways to stop the death of neighbourhood culture? What are the perspectives for the future?

In the event we want to talk to the Syndikat, Kisch & Co, and the Mutiny about their experiences and discuss them. Through inputs from a lawyer and an activist on the commercial tenancy reform, we want to discuss the possibilities of resistance and give perspectives for the future.


Further events:

Housing as a profit investment

09.02.21 8:00 pm

Guests: own need knows no notice, preventing eviction, Berlin homeless aid

Vote out agribusiness! Call for protest on 16 January 2021

Aktuell
© Kampagne Meine Landwirtschaft

For a more peasant-ecological agriculture and species-appropriate animal husbandry, for climate justice and global solidarity!

A failed EU agricultural reform, declarations of bankruptcy in the climate crisis and a fatal agreement with the Mercosur states - this agricultural policy must be voted out! The Ministry of Agriculture and the Federal Government are courting the agricultural industry and continue to postpone the restructuring of agriculture. But in the super election year 2021, we all decide on the future of agriculture and food. Loudly and resolutely we demand a real policy change in January:

From the field to the plate - agricultural and food turnaround now!

Corona shows us even more clearly how important farm-based, sustainable agriculture and regional food crafts are. With day-to-day hard work, they safeguard our food sovereignty. But the pandemic also illustrates the problems: Using the example of Tönnies, we see how the industry makes huge profits at the expense of people, animals and nature. That makes us angry!

Stop the blockade mentality in the Ministry of Agriculture!

For 15 years, the CDU/CSU-led Ministry of Agriculture has been pursuing hard-core patronage policies for industry. This is driving tens of thousands of farms into ruin and leaving farmers to bear the costs of the restructuring of animal husbandry. With the "keep it up" policy of flat-rate land subsidies, Agriculture Minister Klöckner is fuelling the death of farms, the climate crisis and insect mortality. We are fed up with this!

Food is political!

We are the broad movement that takes to the streets for an agricultural and food policy suitable for grandchildren. That is why we are fighting for the preservation of farms and species-appropriate, land-based animal husbandry, for insect-friendly landscapes and real climate protection, for global justice and good food for all.

Seit 15 Jahren macht das unionsgeführte Landwirtschaftsministerium knallharte Klientelpolitik für die Industrie. Das treibt zehntausende Höfe in den Ruin und lässt die Bäuer*innen auf den Kosten für den Umbau der Tierhaltung sitzen. Mit dem „Weiter so“ bei den pauschalen Flächensubventionen heizt Agrarministerin Klöckner das Höfesterben, die Klimakrise und das Insektensterben an. Das haben wir satt!

Essen ist politisch!

Wir sind die breite Bewegung, die für eine enkeltaugliche Agrar- und Ernährungspolitik auf die Straße geht. Deswegen kämpfen wir für den Erhalt der Höfe und artgerechte, flächengebundene Tierhaltung, für insektenfreundliche Landschaften und echten Klimaschutz, für globale Gerechtigkeit und gutes Essen für alle.

„Fakten - Meinung - Mythen. Die DDR als Projektionsfläche!“ Online-Podiumsgespräch

Aktuell
© Robert-Havemann-Gesellschaft

During the anti-corona demonstrations in Leipzig at the beginning of November, reference was repeatedly made to the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 and a "system change" was called for with the slogan "GDR 89 - FRG 2020". This equation shows that many citizens are either not aware of the historical situation of that time or allow themselves to be instrumentalised for other political purposes. Also with reference to an alleged lack of freedom of opinion, which should be demanded as in autumn 1989.

But it is not only in terms of freedom of expression that persistent myths about the GDR still persist in East and West. Allegedly there was no anti-Semitism, no crime, no housing shortage, the best education, medical care for all and everywhere social justice and solidarity. These and other allegations will now be regularly put to the test by renowned authors in an online service of the Federal Foundation for the Reconditioning of the GDR.

To kick off this series, Antje Hermenau (strategy consultant and former politician) and Werner Schulz (GDR civil rights activist and former Member of the European Parliament 2009 - 2014) will discuss these topics on Thursday, 26.11.2020 from 18:00 to 19:00. The moderator will be the WELT editor Sven Felix Kellerhoff. The discussion will be broadcast as a live stream on the YouTube channel of the German Federal Foundation for Reconditioning:

Call from "International Women* Space":

Call to all women*, lesbians, trans* and inter persons for the revolutionary 25th November DEMO for International Day of the Elimination of Violence against Women*

When: 25. November, 2020 at 18:00

Where: Auswärtiges Amt, Werderscher Markt 1, 10117 Berlin

All over the world, governments are guided by imperialist agendas that are destroying the people. These agendas are colonization, neoliberalism, embargo policies, border regimes, deportation policies, and extractivism, which robs the resources of the land and the people, and forces settlements, imposes occupation, and expulsion. People are fleeing from their homes because of white supremacist destructive politics.

Let’s be clear, white supremacy is destroying lives in the name of human rights with, on the one hand, war and arms industry, and on the other hand, detention centers and bloody borders.

We believe that women’s* struggle, self-organization and self-defense is our strength in fighting fascism, patriarchy, and racism. We will continue struggling and defending ourselves against all forms of structural, political, social and economic violence and injustice.

Sisters* solidarity is not enough. It is about resistance.

Only resistance will put an END to colonial Borders and imperialist Agenda.

Let’s be organized.

Let’s be uncompromising.

Let’s dream big.

Let’s stand up.

Our struggle has been there all along and is connecting us around the whole world. We stand hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder together. Because the fight of each sister* is the fight of all sisters*. Another world is possible.

We call all women*, lesbian, trans* and inter persons, especially trans*women, working class women*, disabled women*, refugee women*, Black women*, Indigenous women* and women* of Colour to show our determination and resistance beyond borders.

+Bring your slogans and signs! ++Cis men are not invited, they are advised to take another action to stop violence against women*.

More than twenty years ago Ulrich Domröse (outgoing curator for photography at the Berlinische Galerie) organised the exhibition "Periphery as Place - The Hellersdorf Project", which was first shown at the nGbK in Kreuzberg. Now the nGbK is presenting two of the photo series shown at that time - the urban photographs by Ulrich Wüst and the portraits of young people by Helga Paris - at its branch station urbaner kulturen, in Hellersdorf. The works are to be presented to the public again and discussed. In addition, there are supplementary works by both photographers.

Due to pandemic containment measures, the exhibition is temporarily closed. Online events are available as an accompanying programme:

The event takes place online (by zoom).

Registration by 20 November, 16.00 hrs at: anmeldung@ngbk.de

16:00-18.00

Talk with Ulrich Domröse (Berlinische Galerie) and Urs Kohlbrenner (Planergemeinschaft Kohlbrenner) Over twenty years ago Ulrich Domröse (outgoing curator for photography at the Berlinische Galerie) organised the exhibition "Periphery as Place - The Hellersdorf Project", which was first shown in 1999 at the nGbK in Kreuzberg and later on site. Domröse invited the artists Helga Paris and Ulrich Wüst, among others: "The Hellersdorf project arose from the need to reflect on current developments using the example of Hellersdorf. Therefore, the photographs had to have a concept that interprets rather than documents what is seen."

18:00-20.00

Talk with Inka Schube (Sprengel Museum Hannover) and Wolfgang Kil (critic / architect)

Inka Schube, as curator for photography at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, organised the first major retrospective of Helga Paris' photographs in 2004 and more recently at the Akademie der Künste on Pariser Platz. She is also the editor of the illustrated book recently published by Spector Verlag with photographs of Leipzig's main railway station, which she rediscovered in the Paris archive. Her exhibition "Helga Paris Photography/Photography" is shown all over the world by the Institute for Foreign Relations. Inka Schube had worked on the "Hellersdorfs Project".

Wolfgang Kil studied together with Ulrich Wüst in Weimar - Kil Architecture, Wüst Urban Planning. Both initially worked in their professions, but soon gave them up, as they could no longer see any room for design in the technocratisation of GDR urbanism. While Wüst concentrated on artistic photography with a focus on city views, Wolfgang Kil worked as a photography and city critic. The planned discussion will focus on the particularities of the photographs exhibited at the station urbaner kulturen.
