(en) Germany, /schwarze rub: 08/28/2022: Joint assumption of responsibility concept (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 8 Sep 2022 08:29:18 +0300

Here you will find our joint responsibility assumption concept for the introductory counter on August 28th, 2022. More about the event here. ---- http://schwarzerub.blackblogs.org/2022/08/19/28-08-2022-queer-anarchist-kennlerntresen/ ---- Common-acceptance-of-responsibility-concept ---- Basic requirements -- -- We want to create as non-violent, drug-free and oppressive a space as possible. Anyone who consumes alcohol or other drugs that influence their own ability to reflect or make decisions will be excluded from the event at the Black Pigeon. We also reserve the right to exclude you if you have consumed drugs beforehand or if you do it outside of the store, which then depends on our assessment of your ability to reflect or make decisions.
As many people as possible¹ should be able to feel comfortable, which requires sensitive and open interaction with each other. Remember that there are people with all kinds of shitty experiences and trauma, both speaking and not speaking about something can bring out hurt in people and cause suffering.
An example (deliberately from a different area than sexuality): Lux and Lax both served several years in prison. Lux experiences again and again how this terrible institution is kept silent or how it is sometimes still defended in left-wing spaces and opponents* are demanded to be arrested. Lux finds this very distressing and wishes for a room in which loud, angry and wild talk was made about how to put an end to the prison system. Lax, on the other hand, wants to distance himself from what he has experienced and not be reminded of his time in prison. Both needs are based, have the same causes, are of equal value and are in conflict with each other.
Therefore, be attentive and sensitive when communicating, pay attention to what statements and non-statements trigger in others.

Behavior in the event of assaults and unpleasant situations:
For those affected:
In the event of border crossings or assaults:

If a person is doing things that make you uncomfortable or that go beyond your limits, try to point it out clearly. Sometimes there are misleading situations.
If this is not possible, or if the person continues to behave anyway, alert others and inform the people on the Community Responsibility Assumption Support Team (GVÜUT). We will then work together to stop the person's behavior and end the situation or remove them from the Black Pigeon if necessary.


Seek help and support from people you trust, if you want also from the people from the GVÜUT. There is a sanctuary where you can spend time alone or with people you trust. It is important that you decide what, with whom and when you want to talk to someone.
We are also happy to call friends for you. If you are worried about going home alone, we will be happy to find a solution together.

The environment:
If you suspect that someone is acting against the will of someone else, ask the affected person if this is the case and if they would like help. If you don't want help, respect that.
It is important that interventions that are intended to help should, if possible, have the consent of the potentially affected person. If you are unsure, be sure to talk to others or the GVÜUT about the situation.

It is very important to us to establish a culture of mutual care and direct help. Don't wait for someone else to take care of problems, we should all be there for each other! We don't need experts who supposedly take care of our security (e.g. cops) and nobody who takes over our self-determined and autonomous actions.
Of course, not everyone has to get involved in everything and people should also know their own limits, so you don't always have to help, especially when you can no longer do it.

After assaults:
We will try to work together with those around the abusive person to prevent future abusive behavior and problematic/suppressive behavior. and mindsets to revise and break down. (Based on concepts such as Transformative Justice and Community Accountability).

The Role of the Shared Accountability Assumption Support Team (GVÜUT)
We will try to have an overview of the introductory counter in order to identify problem situations and resolve conflicts before they escalate. Of course, this will not always be possible. We definitely don't want to relieve you of your mutual responsibility, as mentioned above, we should all take care of each other.

Please also come to us with other problems, which e.g. are not due to the actions of the event participants or you have requests, feedback and criticism. (Feedback and criticism are very important to us and are very welcome).
It is also important to us that we protect each other from the police and Nazis. If you notice that they are planning something before the store, let us know. If you are worried about police checks, you can find out more on site at the GVÜUT.

If you want to help with this, please contact us.
~ GVÜUT the Black Ruhr Uni

¹Police officers and Nazis, for example, should not feel comfortable.
