Demonstration: Freedom for Ahmed, Freedom for Röszke11

by Ahmed Solidarity Group

1 year ago

[ελληνικά πιο κάτω] Ahmed’s case will be retried on 8th, 10th and 12th of January. On the 10th join us to protest outside the EU House in Nicosia About the case: Ahmed, legal resident of Cyprus, was arrested at the Röszke/Horgos crossing of the Hungary-Serbia borders, during his attempt to help his parents come to Europe. He was arrested with 10 others known as the Röszke11, during protests that sparked when the Hungarian authorities shut the border and made any crossing a criminal offence. Then he was accused of orchestrating a terrorist attack, and after one year of imprisonment, on 30th of November 2016, he was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment in high security prisons. All requests for visits were rejected or ignored by the authorities. His unsubstantiated and unacceptable conviction and imprisonment are a part of the wider European system of fences, prisons and borders aiming to criminalize free movement and solidarity in the struggles of migrants. On the 15th of June 2017 in Szeged, Hungary, Ahmed H. had his second instance trial which referred the case back to the first instance court to reconsider the terrorism charges due to "lack of reasoning and interpretation". The first rounds ot the reconsideration took...

Genders & Power Vol. 5

by syspirosi_atakton

1 year ago

For the fifth consecutive year, Syspirosi Atakton, an anarchist, anti-authoritarian, anti-oppressive group rooted in Nicosia organizes the Genders and Power festival. The aim is to discuss and elaborate on the ways genders, in their intersections with multiple sociopolitical and cultural categories of difference, interact in myriad ways and arbitrarily produce systemic inequalities. This year, discussions will focus on women’s agency, reproductive justice, lesbian desire, and queer Cypriot art. Abjected voices and their resistance to hegemonic power structures will be put at the center of our struggle. Genders and Power festival neither essentializes nor naturalizes identities or experiences of any kind. It rather seeks to signalize, understand and deconstruct various societal systemic power relations in order to resist them; and here lies its political importance. Accountability, situatedness, and self-reflexivity are all really important elements of our festival’s approach as it seeks to denormalize and delegitimize power differentials and categories through engaging discussions, interactive performances, and parties with politics. Join us! Two-day Festival Schedule Friday, Dec. 8th Saturday, Dec. 9th 19:00 Nandia Efthymiou & Elena Pissaridou: Women’s migration and sex work: destabilizing the logocentric framework of trafficking [ΕΛΛ/GR] 18:00 Erman Dolmacı – Queer Cyprus Activist: Intersectionalities: Feminism, antimilitarism, ecology, anticapitalism and veganism [ENG/ΑΓΓ] 20:30: Rooftop Theatre Group Edep-siz...
