Criminalizing Humanitarian Aid in Europe -Talk & Discussion

At Bildungswerk Berlin der Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, Berlin, Germany
On 10th April 2018 6 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Description

(für Deutsch s. unten)

Criminalizing Humanitarian Aid in Europe - Talk and Discussion on Solidarity with volunteers

Salam Aldeen came to Lesbos to save lives as a volunteer lifeguard. Now he needs help himself. Because he saved refugees from drowning, he faces ten years of imprisonment. On May 7, his trial will take place on Lesbos. Salam will share with us how the criminalization of rescuing refugees from distress at the sea has affected his life.

The example of Salam Aldeen’s case will be discussed with himself and other guests. What impact do European politics, the media and the general social climate have on possible convictions? How can we defend basic humanitarian values? How can those affected be helped?

These and other important questions will be discussed with:

Salam Aldeen - Team Humanity, Denmark
Robert Nestler - Refugee Law Clinics Abroad, Berlin, Germany/Chios, Greece
Lila and Fragkiskos Ragkousis - Salam Aldeen Lawyers, Athens, Greece
Frances Webber & Anya Edmond-Pettit - Institute for Race Relations, London, UK

Moderation:
Christian Jakob - Journalist , TAZ

Deutsch:

Zur Kriminalisierung von Fluchthelfer*innen am Beispiel von Salam Aldeen

Salam Aldeen kam nach Lesbos, um als freiwilliger Rettungsschwimmer Leben zu retten - jetzt benötigt er selbst Hilfe. Weil er Geflüchtete vor dem Ertrinken rettete, drohen ihm zehn Jahre Haft. Am 7. Mai wird sein Prozess wegen "Menschenschmuggels" auf Lesbos stattfinden.

Salam Aldeens Fall steht beispielhaft für die zunehmende Kriminalisierung von Fluchthelfer*innen an den Außengrenzen Europas. Gemeinsam mit ihm und weiteren Gästen werden wir diskutieren, welchen Einfluss die europäische Politik, Medien und das allgemeine soziale Klima auf die öffentliche Meinung dazu nehmen (können). Wie lassen sich grundlegende humanitäre Werte verteidigen? Und wie kann den Kriminalisierten geholfen werden?

Unsere Gäste sind:
Salam Aldeen - Team Humanity, Dänemark
Robert Nestler - Refugee Law Clinics Abroad, Berlin, Deutschland/Chios, Griechenland
Lila und Fragkiskos Ragkousis - Rechtsanwält*innen von Salam Aldeen, Athen, , Griechenland
Frances Webber & Anya Edmond-Pettit - Institute for Race Relations, London, Großbritannien

Moderation:
Christian Jakob - Journalist, TAZ

Das Gespräch findet auf Englisch statt. Eine Übersetzung ins Deutsche ist möglich.

Die Teilnahme ist kostenlos, Anmeldung bitte unter https://tinyurl.com/yc3b5mq8
