REMEMBERING MEANS FIGHTING -
FIGHT TO CHANGE!
MIGRANT STRUGGLES, THEN AND NOW - A NETWORKING MEETING
Survivors and relatives of victims of right-wing violence are committed to and fighting for a different, above all dignified politics of remembrance, also in NRW. They demand clarification, justice and consequences. They are supported by initiatives and alliances. In recent years, several survivors and relatives of victims of right-wing, racist and anti-Semitic violence as well as initiatives from Berlin, Dortmund, Duisburg, Halle, Kassel, Cologne, Mölln, Munich and Solingen, among others, have joined forces nationwide to support each other in solidarity and to jointly give more expression to their demands. Why, no end? What are the demands of survivors and relatives of right-wing violence? At Whitsun, workshops, open panels and the guest performance GASTFRAU as well as the performance THE GAP 2.0 will create safe and open spaces to strengthen networking and exchange in solidarity in NRW. But the weekend, together with the association Streikkultur, also creates visibility and connections to past migrant struggles in Germany. We cannot look at Hanau and Halle without a reference to the racist murders and attacks of the NSU. The NSU complex not without the racist attacks and pogroms after the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification and this time not without the treatment and life of the so-called »guest workers«!
These events have to be seen in context in order to realise a dignified and profound remembrance for migrant struggles. Remembering means fighting! Fighting to change.
