FREE EL MOUTHENA EL MARAKCHI
FREEDOM FOR EL MOUTHENA!!!
STOP THE CRIMINALISATION OF REFUGEES AND MIGRANTS,
FREEDOM FOR ALL REFUGEES!!!
We hereby call on the minister of justice in Bavaria Prof. Dr. Winfried Bausback to intervene against the unlawfull incarceration of our friend and comrade El Mouthena El Marakchi who was imprisoned on fault charges, by the german authorities on 14th, November 2013. El Mouthena was condemned because he didn't allow the authorities to silence his voice in the struggle for the freedom of movement of undocumented migrants in the european union and proceeded to go to a anti-racist networking conference.
During the process of his incarceration El Mouthena was deprived of his right to claim for asylum in germany and prevented from seeing his lawyer and a translator based on flimsy arguments and therefore has to be set free!!!
Further El Mouthena had an explanation of the reason for his trip, signed by a lawyer, that he showed when he was arrested but still deprived of his rights.
Political fight is everybody's right!
El Mouthena is one of the engines of the self-organized struggle of refugees known by the name of Wij Zijn Hier (www.wijzijnhier.org) in the netherlands and beyond. As a charming and intelligent person with a contagious smile he fought tirelessly, for the freedom of movement and a self-determined and decent living for all.
Even though it is not the first time that our friend is the target of state repression and criminalization against the refugee movement and despite of all the hardships, he didn’t lose his sense of humor and continues his struggle from the inside of the prisons walls.
One year ago El Mouthena was already indiscriminately imprisoned in Kamp Zeist after the eviction of the Refugee Protest Tent Camp in Oosdorp Amsterdam, on 30th November 2012, where he was only released after a successful hunger strike against his incarceration and the untenable charges after six weeks.
The newly incarceration of El Mouthena shows that the european union and its national agents are trying everything to silence the self-organized struggle of refugees by incarcerating the action groups and subverting the most active parts of the movement with fault promises.
Let’s help El Mouthena to continue our common struggle by breaking the isolation and tearing down the prison walls with our solidarity!!! Let’s not allow the authorities to divide and rule the WE ARE HERE movement!!!
WE ARE HERE AND WE WILL STAY!!!
UNTIL EVERYONE IS FREE!!!
