On Friday, 15th of December 2017, 209 people from Sierra Leone in the transit camp in Deggendorf, Germany started a ‘strike of closed doors’. In protest, the children and young people refused to attend the German class as access to other educational institutions is denied. The adults haven’t left the accommodation and denied to work in the 80 cents jobs. On Saturday, 16th of December 2017 they started a hunger strike. The protest involves 44 children and young people, as well as 40 women (among them 12 pregnant women) and 125 men. The starting point of the protest was the violent deportation of a man from Sierra Leone on Friday morning, which was stopped in the last minute at the airport.
Today Arash Hampay is 19 days in hunger strike. Three imprisoned refugees in Moria (Lesvos, Greece), Amir Hampay (brother of Arash), Arash Bahroz and Hussein Kozhin are 20 days in hunger strike now. Statements by hunger striker Arash Hampay.
On May 22, 36 people started a protest against deportations, for equal rights for all and for the permission to work in front of district office in Ebersberg, near to Munich (Germany). One day later the protesters started a dry hunger strike. In Berlin refugees continued their protest in front of the lager at Brienner street.
In Berlin cops evicted refugees who were protesting against the conditions in the refugee camp at Brienner Street 16. The cops confiscated all sleeping bags and tents . People want to stay in the street. Urgent support needed. Please tell to everyone you know.
Three years after the internationally organizedMarch for Freedom, four participants in a peaceful demonstration in the city of Luxembourg have been sentenced to restrictive suspended sentences and high fines. The entire trial appeared extremely arbitrary and did not correspond to fair legal practices.
Times are gone, in which the German state presented itself as a refuge of humanity and of culture of welcome and in which it was comparatively easy to enter the country for refugees (partly also without registration). Nowadays agreements are made with governors like the Turkish president Erdogan, to prevent refugees from coming close to the German borders; to speed up the asylum procedure, more and more states are designated as secure countries of origin, so that people can be deported there without a so called individual case inspection; an annual maximum limit for asylum requests is discussed and incidents like IS attacks or sexual assaults on women are instrumentalised to stir up fear within society and to legitimate a harsh approach against any form of foreigner’s criminality.
Two and a half years after the internationally organized March for Freedom, six activists are going to trial. During the day of action on May 5, 2014 there were thirteen brutal arrests at a demonstration on the Kirchberg in Luxemburg. The demonstration was a protest against a meeting of European Union Ministers of Interior entitled “Fight Against Illegal Immigration”.
On 5th February 2017, most of the adults (about 200, editor Enough is Enough) among the 711 refugees residing in a state-run Camp in the former Athens National Airport (Camp Elliniko II), in the majority coming from Afghanistan, started a hunger strike to protest against their degrading living conditions demanding for their transfer to homes, papers and freedom of movement for all. As reported by one of the refugees, it is very likely that residents of the two other camps in Elliniko (the nearby Olympic baseball and a hockey stadiums) might join in the protest today.

RESISTING is a brand new legal resource for those fighting for collective liberation, and against systemic injustice and oppression while being subjected to Canadian colonial law.

Gegenüber den deutschen Ordoliberalen hat der amerikanische Neoliberalismus die Tendenz, neue Formen des Wettbewerbs im gesamten sozialen Körper zu etablieren, sodass die Differenz zwischen ökonomischem Wettbewerb und individueller Freiheit als einer Form des sozialen Interesses aufgehoben zu sein scheint. Das Unternehmen wird in jeden Teil der sozialen Fabrik eingepflanzt. Foucault räumt jedoch der Analyse des […]
Kommentar: Die Politik nimmt die rechtsoffene Hygienedemonstration am 1. August in Berlin zum Anlass, um die Menschen auf weitere Maßnahmen des autoritären Staates einzuschwören "36 Argumente für Gott", "Liebe und Heimat" und Deutschlandfahnen in verschiedenen Formen.

Lambert wendet sich daraufhin dem Begriff der Funktion zu, den Althusser in seinem Konzept des ideologischen Staatsapparates genauer zu erfassen versucht hat, wobei zunächst auf die Kategorie des Subjekts und sein Funktionieren zu rekurrieren ist. Althusser spricht hier von der Interpellation als der effektiven Technik, durch die konkreten Individuen in Subjekte transformiert werden, sodass sie […]
Im nächsten Abschnitt stellt Lambert die Frage nach dem für Foucault äußerst wichtige Begriff des Dispositivs. Dabei ist von zwei grundlegenden Aussagen auszugehen. Es werden die Konzepte nicht durch die Propositionen definiert, sondern durch Diskurse, die schnell ein früheres Konzept verändern können, so wie etwa Foucault sein früheres Konzept des Apparats in das des Dispositivs […]

Foucault entwickelt seine Methode in drei Schritten: 1) Die Eliminierung der intuitiven Bedeutung von Termen, sodass sie aus taktischen Gründen nicht wiederkehren können (Souveränität). 2) Die neutrale Definition von Termen aus keinem anderen Grund, als um das Feld von Relationen zu bestimmen, das in den Postulaten erscheint. 3) Die Darlegung von Regeln für die Konstruktion […]
Gregg Lambert fragt sich in seinem neuen Buch „The Elements of Foucault“ richtigerweise, welche Bedeutung und Nutzen ein weiteres Buch zu Foucault in den Fluten überbordender Sekundärliteratur noch haben könnte, eine Literatur, die oft über die Nacherzählung einzelner theoretischer Parts bei Foucault nicht hinaus kommt. Tatsächlich gelingt es aber Lambert dieser Sekundärliteratur etwas hinzuzufügen, was […]
