Repressive prosecution of Sista Oloruntoyin for the #BlackLivesMatter protest in front of the U.S. Consulate on June 5, 2020

Greetings Dear All,

This is to inform that there will be a criminal court case against Sista Oloruntoyin of the Black Community Coalition of Justice & Self-Defence

on 03. February 2022, at 09:00 am,

at courtroom 176

Amtsgericht Hamburg

(Strafjustizgebäude/Criminal Justice Building, Sievekingplatz 3)

Sista Oloruntoyin (LaToya Manly-Spain) faces criminal charges for allegedly “holding a prohibited or unregistered manifestation and rally in spite of ban or police order to disperse in accordance with Paragraph 26 of the law on assemblies”. About 5000 protesters joined in solidarity to send a strong signal across the globe. We are seeing this juridical criminalisation of Sista Oloruntoyin as an attack on the Black Community in Hamburg and all protesters. We call on all civil society groups and organisations to come out in active support and solidarity.

20. Jahrestag der Ermordung von Bruder Achidi John am UKE

20. Jahrestag der Ermordung von Bruder Achidi John am UKE

DE – EN (below)

PDF – Kundgebungsaufruf

Am 9. Dezember 2001 wurde unser Bruder Achidi John (Michael Paul Nwabuisi) am Institut für Rechtsmedizin des Hamburger UKE von Dr. Ute Lockemann und mehreren Polizeibeamten durch die Anwendung der Brechmittelfolter brutal ermordet. Bruder Achidi John wehrte sich in Todesangst gegen die zwangsweise Einflößung des Brechmittels Ipecacuanha und warnte seine Mörder*innen mehrfach und eindringlich mit den Worten: „I will die!“. Bruder Achidi John wurde von insgesamt 5(!) Polizisten brutal fixiert, während die Ärztin Dr. Lockemann mehrfach versuchte, eine Magensonde durch seine Nase einzuführen, um dann 30ml Brechmittel und 800ml Wasser zwangsweise in ihn hineinzupumpen. Als Bruder Achidi John durch das Einflößen dieser Menge an Flüssigkeiten in seine Lungen das Bewusstsein verlor, ins Koma fiel und starb, unternahmen seine Peiniger*innen nichts und unterstellten ihm stattdessen, er würde sein Sterben nur „simulieren“. Erst nachdem eine anwesende Medizinstudentin keinen Puls mehr fühlen konnte und intervenierte, wurde ein Reanimationsteam des UKE hinzugerufen, die sein Leben allerdings nicht mehr retten konnten. Bruder Achidi John wurde notfallmäßig zur intensivmedizinischen Alibi-Behandlung und zur Vertuschung der Nachweismöglichkeit der Einflößung des Brechmittels in seine Lungen noch 3 weitere Tage maschinell „beatmet“. Die behandelnden Intensivmediziner gaben der Anwältin der Familie zu verstehen, dass ihnen quasi ein Leichnam zur „Behandlung“ übergeben worden war. Am 12. Dezember 2001 wurde der Leichnam dann offiziell für hirntot erklärt und die Beatmungsmaschine abgestellt.

DE – PDF_Oury Jalloh wurde von deutschen Polizisten gefoltert ermordet und verbrannt!

Die Initiative in Gedenken an Oury Jalloh hat am 3. November 2021 ihr mittlerweile fünftes zivilgesellschaftlich beauftragtes Gutachten im Fall Oury Jalloh vorgestellt. Dieses Brandgutachten des renommierten britischen Brandforensikers Iain Peck von den Principal Forensic Services UK beruht auf den Erkenntnissen aus einer detailgetreuen Rekonstruktion der Situation in der Todeszelle Nr. 5 des Dessauer Polizeirevieres am 7. Januar 2005 in einem originalgetreuen Zellennachbau dieser Zelle. Peck weist damit forensisch und damit wissenschaftlich fundiert nach, dass das Brandbild des 7. Januar 2005 nur unter Verwendung eines Brandbeschleunigers entstanden sein kann.

Nach fast 17 Jahren ist damit nun endgültig wissenschaftlich bewiesen, dass die Täter-Opfer-Umkehr der sog. „Selbstentzündungshypothese“ von Polizei, Justiz und Politik eine haltlose Verschwörungstheorie war und ist. Kein tatsächliches Beweismittel sprach jemals direkt dafür, aber viele direkt und indirekt dagegen. Ihre offenkundige Funktion bestand darin, die Täter*innen zu schützen und der Familie, den Angehörigen und Freund*innen, aber auch der Öffentlichkeit die Wahrheit über einen Mord vorzuenthalten. Die bis heute faktisch unbelegte Feuerlegung durch Oury Jalloh selbst ist eine nachweisliche Vorfestlegung der Ermittlungsbehörden, ohne die ihre Unterlassungen, Manipulationen und Vertuschungen in den bisherigen Ermittlungsverfahren im Fall überhaupt erst einen „Sinn“ ergeben. So waren es nicht die zuständigen Staatsanwaltschaften und Gerichte, die alle wesentlichen und heute bekannten Fakten des Falles ermittelt haben, sondern das zivilgesellschaftliche Engagement der Initiative in Gedenken an Oury Jalloh, die diese Fakten in 5 unabhängigen Gutachten und gemeinsam mit den Rechtsanwält*innen der Familie offengelegt und nachgewiesen hat.

COMMUNITY MATTERS:

An Educational Series for Wellbeing & Critical Consciousness

ONLINE WEBINAR
With Sister Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
!!! Registration mandatory required – pls mail to: academy@blackcommunitycoalition.de !!!
 
Introduction to GloBUNTU
 
“When you learn, teach.”
Dr. Maya Anglou
 
This 3-Part Webinar has been developed is for members of the Black Communities and all African and Afro-Diasporan groups and organisations. It is made up of three progressive interactive sessions. You will get the best out of it by attending all the sessions. The first two sessions are designed to prepare your mind for the final session, which is a facilitated brainstorming session intended to empower you to clearly recognise and express yourself and your needs within the community, without the fear of being judged or misunderstood.
 
The end goal is to assist you to become a vibrant, healthy, engaging and enabling community that sees, understands, respects and encourages the diversity of people, opinions, contributions and collaborations within the Black Communities.
 
Active participation €15 per Session|
All Sessions together for €35 only |

Session 1
Thursday, 30. September 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS : Session 1 Identity | Self-Worth | Purpose (Facebook-Event)
We are more effective, impactful and fulfilled in life the moment we recognise and fully embrace who we truly are, and what we are worth.”
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
In this first session, we focus on core questions such as
Who am I REALLY?
What is my SELF-WORTH? and
What is MY ROLE within the community?
To do this we shall leverage on your multi-dimensional identities paying special attention on attributes such as immigrant, second generation, African, Person of African Descent, African European, Bi-racial etc. At the end of this session you would be able to redefine and recalculate the sum total of yourself- worth and identify ways on how you can best use it to serve yourself and the community.
 
When you know what you are truly worth, you know how to bring yourself to the table and when you know how and where to seat at the table, your presence alone makes all the difference.
 
##############################
 
Session 2
Thursday, 7. October 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS: Session 2 – The permission to heal (Facebook-Event)
As Africans and People of African Descent brandmarked as immigrants, we are all wounded souls who seek for some form of collective healing by organising ourselves in communities. The truth is that we can’t really honestly heal as a collective, until we the individuals who form these communities have consciously and proactively healed or at least given ourselves the permission to heal.”
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
With the knowledge of who you really are, the awareness of yourself worth and your purpose gained from the first session, this one will help you identify areas of your life as individuals and as a community that need personal and collective healing. The practical GloBUNTU Tools and Tips that come with this session will empower you to activate and accept your own healing, as well as help you learn how to proactively engage in and grow your healing as a collective. At the end of the session you will also be able to identify the intersections and overlapping between individual, community, historical/generational and or emotional pains that you need to let go to allow yourself to heal, unapologetically.
 
###############################
 
Session 3
Thursday, 14. October 2021 | 20.00h CEST
 
COMMUNITY MATTERS : Session 3 – How to balance individual and Community Needs (Facebook-Event)
“In ever self-organised community, every voice counts, irrespective of how loud or gentle it is. The moment we learn how to listen to every one of our voices with respect, especially in moments of disagreement, we become stronger and with that we have an advantage over forces outside of our community “
Ankwetta B. Achaleke
 
This adjourning session is a GloBUNTU Facilitated Open Session in the form of an “African Palaver” or “Legotla”. The power of an African Palaver or Legotla session lies in the fact that it is probably the oldest and most participative leadership concept in the world. It is a bottom up concept that brings members of a community together and gives them the time and space to proactively listen to each other, with the ultimate goal of coming out with answers to their own challenges and questions. The beauty of this approach is the fact that when people are have the space to develop their own solutions, they have ownership over them. With that ownership they are in position to expand, extend and grow their solutions at their own pace, whenever needed and on their own terms and conditions. In other words, this concept helps people get to know themselves and their collective wisdom and strength much better. This in turn helps them to tap into their diverse expertise, experiences and strengths to develop their own survival strategies. This process makes them active and valuable members of the community.
 
The mission of this session is to encourage community members to use the knowledge and tools they learned from the two previous sessions to pinpoint and share their current challenges, expectations, opinions, fears, insecurities etc. The facilitation process will assist them to come out with enabling tools and tips that they can repeatedly use to better navigate their daily live as individuals and as a community during and beyond the current pandemic.

The Role of Religion in the Struggle for total Afrikan Emancipation

Academy for Black Studies, African Culture & Heritage

Free Lecture Series for Adults & Children of African Descent

Registration: academy@blackcommunitycoalition.de

This event has to be postponed from September 5th to September 12th due to power shortage in Guyana with a shortly announced power cut today on September 5th.
 

NEW DATE: 12.09.2021 | 15-17H

We apologize for any inconveniences connected to short notice and change of date!
 
This event will address the social function of religion, the role of imperial theologies and the concept of total emancipation.
What is the role of religion as a determinant of what we believe and how we should act and respond as Africans to emancipate ourselves from „Mental slavery“?
 
When we look at most African countries, we find that religion is a social aspect which determines identity. This issue of religion is often partly the cause of the problems that are destroying traditional knowledges and practices in our communities. In all African societies, indigenous and imported religions have influenced our shared collective history in one way or another.
 
Gerald A. Perriera will shed light on the origin of imported colonizing religions and highlight the importance of religion for emancipation and liberation.
Has the quest for unity and emancipation been compromised by religions?
Can the quest for unity and emancipation be divorced from the inherent beliefs in different religions?
This lecture aims to raise awareness and understanding of religion derived from a shared African experience and identity.
