Menschenfischer - Zur Geschichte der tunesischen Fischer

Im August 2007 retteten die beiden Kapitäne und weitere fünf Fischer 44 Migrant*innen aus Seenot. Gegen Abdrängungsmanöver der italienischen Marine brachten die Fischer die Geretteten nach Lampedusa. Sie wurden dafür kriminalisiert und ein sizilianisches Gericht verurteilte die Kapitäne Bayoudh und Jenzeri im November 2009 zu einer Haftstrafe von 30 Monaten sowie zu einer Geldstrafe von 440.000 €. Ihre Boote wurden konfisziert und auf Lampedusa festgelegt, wo sie inzwischen aufgrund der erlittenen Schäden unbrauchbar geworden sind. Die Existenzgrundlagen der Fischer und ihrer Familien wurden damit ruiniert.

Push back Solidarity - How the European Union criminalizes solidarity with people seeking protection

All over Europe, organisations and individuals are being discredited, harassed, obstructed and prosecuted because they show solidarity with people on the move. This brochure provides an insight and overview of the increasing criminalization of solidarity within the European Union; its background, forms and effects and numerous cases. However, state repression is meeting with resistance. Those affected are not intimidated. Repression is followed by new waves of solidarity, fuelling the common struggle against the racist European border regime.

Ashes of the Failure of European Humanism

First report by Salim Nabi - borderline-lesvos. Mytilini, 9. September 2020 Over the night of September 8 to September 9, 2020 a fire broke out in the largest refugee camp in Europe, the notorious Moria Camp. Moria burned down almost entirely, and it was long overdue; it should have been burned down years ago as a gesture of Europe’s respect for everyone’s right to life. And a miracle it was that for so long the authorities managed to keep the “hell” going, and a miracle, too, it was that the dehumanized population managed to avoid burning down to ashes the hell that was designed and manufactured for them. Moria shall never be opened

Menschenfischer - Zur Geschichte der tunesischen Fischer

In August 2007, the two captains and another five fishermen rescued 44 migrants from distress at sea. The fishermen brought the rescued to Lampedusa. There, they were arrested and a Sicilian court sentenced the captains Bayoudh and Jenzeri in November 2009 to 30 months imprisonment and a fine of €440,000. Their boats were confiscated and confined to Lampedusa, where they have since been rendered unusable due to the damage suffered. The livelihoods of the fishermen and their families have thus been ruined.
