The Mission of the MV Louise Michel

"Feminism will be anti-racist or it won´t be"
rC1
MVLouise Michel
SAR for us does not mean “Search and Rescue", but “Solidarity and Resistance”. We will talk about the mission of the rescue vessel Louise Michel and why smashing borders won´t work without smashing the patriarchy - and the other way round.

This summer, a pink ship popped up on the central mediterranean sea and made headlines by rescuing hundreds out of maritime distress. We will talk about the power structures behind this situation and about the values of our mission as we understand doing sea rescue not as an humanitarian act but as field that might conquer powerful relations.

Borders are imaginary lines with a pronounced vulnerability, otherwise they would not need so many (technical) measures to protect them. But borders are more than 'only' borders of states/countries. Borders are also boundaries between humans, bodies, gender, ... or differently: they are supposed lines of distinction. Fighting these borders means we have to struggle them together and understand all of them as contested territories, contested bodies, contested spaces.

But what could that mean? And (how) do we reflect what we’re doing and how we’re acting? How aware are we ourselves about white supremacy and neo-colonialism in our work? How can we challenge our internalized sexism and racism while working in the field under constant pressure of opressing systems?

2020 was and still is an eventful year - pandemic, protests, orange men, you name it. This talk is a comprehensive overview about yet another tumult: the protests that occured in Bulgaria in 2020, months of demonstrations against an European Union member state government that were largely unacknowledged in the rest of the EU - from the perspective of an expat and an involved small scale activist on the fringe.

Since October 2019 the Chilean people have been fighting for social dignity and equality. During the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet in the 80's nearly everything in Chile was privatized including the health system, education and pensions. As a consequence the people suffer economically, get deeply indebted and become slaves of the banks. The Chilean people are fighting for and demanding a new constitution which is free of neoliberalism.

Im Zuge des diesjährigen rC3 Events soll der Konflikt um die Region Berg-Karabach in diesem Vortrag aufgearbeitet werden. Der seit 26 Jahren andauernder Konflikt entwickelte sich im September diesen Jahres in einen zwischenstaatlichen Krieg zwischen Armenien und Aserbaidschan, der drastische Schäden verursachte. Es befinden sich über 75.000 Menschen aus den Kriegsgebieten auf der Flucht, ohne Heimat und ohne Eigentum, und eine humanitäre Katastrophe wird mit jedem Tag wahrscheinlicher. Woran ...

Bluetooth is still the best technology we have in a smartphone to implement exposure notifications. It is safe to use the Corona-Warn-App. Fight me! ;)

Aktivist*innen der "Antiverschwurbelten Aktion" nehmen den kleinen Volksaufstand mit Humor. Seit dem sich die sogenannte Hygiene-Demo auf dem Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin bildete, gehen Echsenmenschen energisch gegen die Schwurbel vor. Es geht um praktische Gegenstrategien.
