“We are not numbers!” prison post from brother Y.

The holidays are coming,  you can feel the  euphoria on the streets, ” lovely” lights and decorations everywhere, again millions of trees will be cut down,  we can not  breathe from the commercials  calling for shopping and consummation… While the world will celebrate, in forgotten places people constantly  face brutal violence, they  suffer and die  because of wars, exploitation, illegalisation and criminalisation every day, every day. every day…                     All  migrants are political prisoners, their freedom is taken for indefinite time,  just because they  express their right to travel and right to free movement.
# Act against detention and segregation! # Shut down all prisons! #Boycott Christmas and New year !# An injury to one is an injury to all!

A message from  brother Y.  who is detained in Greece after the segregation and          eviction in Idomeni.

“Look how is great to be a human, I asked them for a better place, they sent me to the jail, cause i am an immigrant, ran away from thought control, cause I am rastafarian, I ran away from closed minds.
We learned from some animals how to fight but not how to live.
We love to count numbers, and do not have only 1 country called the Earth , but hundreds and hundreds…  Counting numbers is our problem, with counting numbers we make difference between that one and the other one.”

“Mi nismo brojke!” – Post iz zatvora                   

Dolaze praznici, oseća se blagdanska euforija, kite se ulice i gradovi,“ krasne” lampice svetlucaju svuda,  na milione drva će opet biti posečeno, ne možemo već disati od reklama koji pozivaju na šoping i konzumaciju… Dok se ljudi širom sveta pripremaju za proslave, na zaboravljenim mestima  ljudi  se neprekidno suočavaju sa brutalnim nasiljem, pate i umiru zbog ratova, eksploatacije, kriminalizacije i ilegalizacije svaki dan …                              Svi migranti su politički zatvorenici, lišavaju ih slobode na neodređeno vreme, samo zato što žele da žive sa svojim pravom  na slobodu kretanja.

Poruka od brata Y., koji je  hapšen u Atini posle teškog iskustva nasilja u Idomeni i sada se nalazi u korintskom zatvoru.

“ Pogledaj kako je veličanstveno biti čovek, tražio sam bolje mesto za život a  oni me zatvorili iza rešetaka. Zato što sam immigrant. Ja sam rastafarianac, pobegao sam od kontrole misli, od zatvorenih umova. Ljudi su naučili od nekih životinja kako da se bore ali ne i kako da žive. Volimo se baviti brojkama, umesto da imamo jednu jedinu državu koja bi se zvala samo – Zemlja, mi ih imamo na stotine i stotine… Brojke su naš problem,  time  pravimo razliku medju nama.”                                                                                                                               # Protiv zatvaranja i segregacije! # Protiv svih zatvora! # Bojkot proslave Božića i Nove godine!
