(en) leipzig fau: Call: For an free and open society - Solidarity instead of inclusion! (de) [machine translation]
Sun, 11 Aug 2019 10:27:09 +0300
A broad coalition is calling for a major demonstration in Dresden on 24 August. FAU
Leipzig joins the call for this demonstration and is mobilizing people to participate. We
stand against the right mob that is forming in society and party politics We stand for
class solidarity and an internationalism that is consistent. As a militant workers‘ union,
we oppose the ideologies of capitalism and nationalism which have left and continue to
leave nothing but ruins and suffering in their wake. ---- The right wants to go back to
the past, we want the future! ---- To make it clear: the right mob that is forming in
society and party politics has nothing to offer but the bogeyman of who supposedly is
“different and foreign”. Where the right is in power, policies that benefit the rich are
continued, the freedoms of expression and the press are eliminated, unions suffer from
repression and society is brought into line by authoritarianism.
We organize workers based on solidarity – whether they’re migrants or their
(grand-)parents were, whether they’re locals or refugees. With our militant union movement
we face the everyday demands of the capitalist workplace together, globally!
In times of virulent racist and nationalist mobilizations, a society based on solidarity
will not just be given to us, it is up to us to organize ourselves and fight: at the
workplace and in the streets.
FAU Leipzig hence joins the #unteilbar call.
There is a dramatic political shift: racism and misanthropy became socially acceptable.
What was unthinkable yesterday and considered unspeakable is reality today. Humanity and
human rights, religious freedom and the rule of law are openly attacked. This is an attack
that affects all of us.
We know about the importance of the state elections in Saxony and current political
conditions regarding the dispute over the nationwide shift to the right.
Europe is seized by nationalistic changes of desolidarization and exclusion. Criticism of
these inhumane conditions is deliberately defamed as unrealistic. In this situation, we do
not allow that the welfare state, refugees and migration are being pitted against each
other. We fight back, when human rights and fundamental liberties are being endangered.
While the state is tightening so-called security laws and expands surveillance for the
determination of its strength, the social system is characterized by weakness: people
suffer from the fact that far too little is invested, such as in education, care and
health, in the fight against the ecological crisis, in public transport, child care and
youth culture. While agricultural infrastructure is heavily underfunded and people are
pushing into urban centers, there is a lack of affordable housing in the cities. The
redistribution from the bottom up was massively driven by crisis, such as the
“Wendekrise”, Agenda 2010 and the financial crisis. Billon profits due to tax-advantages
counterpart one of the largest low-wage sectors in Europe and the impoverishment of
Not with us – we hold against this!
„For an open country with free people“ in 1989 many people demonstrated under that slogan.
This message has not lost its relevancy until today and is expected to return to the
streets this summer. Now we stand up for an open and solidary society, in which human
rights are indivisible and diverse and self-determined life-plans are self- evident- in
Saxony, Germany and worldwide. We oppose any form of discrimination and hate speech.
Together, we oppose racism, anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim racism, anti-romanism,
anti-feminism and LGBTTIQ* hostility. People who rely on the solidarity of society must
not be pitted against each other. The equivalence of everyone concerning their reputation
and their possibilities is not negotiable. All people living here must be enabled to
participate in society.
We already are many who are committed:
Whether at the external borders of Europe, in the field of refugee organizations and
welcome initiatives, in queer feminist or antiracist movements, in migrant organizations,
in disability- or child´s-rights organizations, in unions, in associations, NGOs,
religious communities, neighborhood associations. Whether in the fight against housing
shortages, repression, care needs, against surveillance and restricting laws, against the
deprivation of refugees and for climate justice – since “the fall of solidarity” hundreds
of thousands of people went out on the streets for a solidary society – in many places
people are active and committed to create a society of many. This start of social
movements will be continued this summer.
As a start to our joint activities, a demonstration will take place on July 6 in Leipzig,
with which we want to initiate the #unteilbar summer in Saxony. The highlight will be a
large-scale demonstration with nationwide mobilization on August 24, 2019 in Dresden. In
between we want to cooperate with the #wannwennnichtjetzt concert and market place tour in
Plauen, in the Erzgebirge, in Zwickau, Grimma and Bautzen. From now on we will be active
in many different local places and will mobilize nationwide for the demonstration in Dresden.
#unteilbar Sachsen flourishes through our commitment. Everyone is needed for preparations:
Start networking with others and mobilizing in your neighborhoods.
For an open and free society – Solidarity instead of exclusion in Saxony and far beyond!
For a Europe of human rights and social justice!
For a solidary and social togetherness in Saxony instead of exclusion and racism!
For the right of protection and asylum – Against the isolation of Europe!
For a free and diverse society! Solidarity knows no borders!
Demonstration in Dresden: 24.08. // 13 h // Altmarkt
Stay tuned & join the black-red block!
