Bankole & Aisha back in Bristol

- Comments Off on Bankole & Aisha back in Bristol

The following is the info their sent updating their situation 

Peace Everyone: 24 November 2002 

Aisha and I want to let everyone know that we are trying to stay rested but are now in the last week in Sweden. Dec. 1st is our last day, when we leave by sea ferry to England. 

There are caring and solidarity minded activists in Jonkoping providing us with a place to stay currently. Last Friday, Aisha performed at the 20th anniversay of the Kulturhuset in town. Aisha and I traveled from here to Motala Thursday, Nov. Nov. 21, where we had a very warm response to Aishas singing and piano playing. 

Next week, in Goteborg, we are being hosted by Dallas commune. At this point, unfortunately we have just one engagement, Thursday, 28 Nov., at Valand Art Academy. We are calling upon everyone to ask their friends and contacts in Goteborg to support us. Have them contact me. bankole_irungu@hotmail.com 

We remind you that Aishas CD sales, including My Gift is My Culture, the latest, and produced with help from Umea activists, and ExiledOne booklet sales, can be the difference in our pockets once we arrive in the UK. There is no fun in living hand to mouth in a strange land. Purchase now! 

Contact us directly about this and donations. We have a short amount of time. 

Finally, we salute Ryan and Fraser over in Canada, who had in the last weekend, (Nov. 17) sold several of Aishas CDs and a number of booklets to help us. They hosted Silent Partner about Canada and Africans from America being repressed as a matter of historical and geopolitical course. COINTELPRO, its tactics and effects were discussed. Our difficulties with the government of Canada, music industry and activists was also talked about. Aishas music was played. This is invaluable work and shows true solidarity with us and those of us that cannot have a country to live in because of US/Canadian targetting. 

In Uppsala, Christopher and a core of dedicated supporters have helped Aisha with presentation of a demo to a record label there. Ever since our mid month departure from the Stockholm region, Uppsala activists have kept in touch and assisted us in numerous ways, including purchasing CDs. One woman supplied Aisha with throat lozenges and tea! 

This is appreciated and keeps us going. There is no doubt that Aisha and I are getting closer to finding a country to live in. The reality is that we must strive all out to make it happen. 2003 will be the year, we have affirmed it! 

Many Thanks, Toronto and Guelph for the support, caring and love! 

Brothers and Sisters opposed to, but inside the US prisons and society, our supporters in Bristol, UK, and Spain, you stood with us, Many Thanks! 

Jonkoping, Linkoping, Malmo, Motala, Stockholm, Umea, Uppsala, and everywhere in between in Sweden that have made 2002 a great year for us, we say New Years Greetings! Vi ses! 

And Many Thanks for solidarity with us, and all African people in and from the US fighting for our Human Rights and Self Determination!

Jo Wilding talks at Easton community centre

Last report from Baghdad 
Written on Sunday 30th March 2003 

I started crying this morning. I thought I was leaving at 8am in a convoy for Jordan and I said goodbye to the staff in the Andalus. Many,s the evening I,ve spent setting the world to rights over tea and cake round the desk on the ground floor or, in the last week and a bit, leaning against a post on the roof with Ahmed, looking out at the city lights, or sometimes the lack of them, and the flashes and the jets of flame. 
It got worse when I said goodbye to the young soldiers on the street outside, who share their tea with us and tell jokes in mime. “Ma,assalama,” I said, and added, as a reflex, “Good luck.” And then I couldn,t bear the thought of them having to face those overwhelmingly powerful tanks and guns and ammunition that can pierce body armour, with nothing but an aging rifle and a hard hat to protect them. 
Then when all the bags were in the car, there was a mix-up and the rest of the convoy left without us and I wasn,t leaving after all, and leaving was the last thing in the world I wanted to do, but by then my defences had lapsed and the crater of sorrow inside me had filled to the top and it overflowed with the tears of Akael,s mother for her boy, writhing in pain, with metal in his head, and Nahda,s husband for his new wife, crushed in the rubble of the farmhouse, and all the unbelievable, intolerable, uncontainable sadness in this place. 
Missing the convoy meant I got to say goodbye to Zaid, at least, because he arrived here at the Service Centre just after I did. He looks tired – he said he hasn,t been sleeping, because there,s nothing to do all day: no work, no money, nowhere open to go to, not even the kids to play with because they,re staying somewhere else. 
There,s been no chance today to go and catch up with the people we met yesterday in the hospital and find out how they,re doing. Akael,s mother rebounds around my thoughts. Please let his head wound be shallow. 
The bombing is a constant background noise today, a rhythm in stereo with no visible source. Ali is playing a game on the computer involving tanks firing missiles at things in a city. Wasn,t that a bit too close for comfort, I asked, or was it simulator practice in case he needed those skills in the coming weeks. He thought that was funny. 
The kids in the Fanar Hotel were playing Risk the other day – basically a war board game, where players invade each other,s countries and try to take over the entire world with small plastic pieces. War is deeply strange. 
It will probably be a while before any of my friends in Iraq are able to read this, but when you do, this is what I wanted to say. I,m so glad I,ve met you and had time to hang out with you. Thankyou for your friendship, for glasses of tea and numi basra and coffees and arghilas and songs and chat and gossip and tours of the city and evenings by the river and rollercoaster rides and shared secrets and everything. 
I hope you make it safely through this war and I hope you find your freedom, from the bullying of the US/UK and the Iraqi government; I hope you are allowed your peace. Your courage, your dignity, your kindness and humour inspire me. Ma,assalama. 
================================================================================= 
I,m appearing in Bristol Crown Court at 10am this Friday – April 11th – to challenge again the legality of the sanctions against Iraq. It,s an appeal from the hearing on December 2nd last year when Bristol Magistrates decided, without letting me raise any of the relevant evidence, that the sanctions didn,t breach the Geneva Conventions. 
Of course, as with the war, the law isn,t the most important factor in this. Even if it were lawful, it would still be wrong to place a sweeping embargo on items including the essentials of ordinary civilian life, but every tool is important and the case is timely. The current war is in itself evidence that the sanctions have not achieved their stated aim. The conclusion of the war will likely mark the end of the sanctions in their present form, with the incalculable suffering they have caused to ordinary Iraqis and their negligible effect on the Iraqi government, which has continued to abuse its citizens with impunity. 

That abuse, however, cannot be allowed to mask the responsibility of the UK and THEM governments for the hundreds of thousands of deaths attributed to the sanctions – NOT the Iraqi government – by the Security Council,s own humanitarian panel. 

I interviewed Carel de Rooy, head of the UNICEF mission in Iraq, in February. He explained that 12 and a half years of UN sanctions have left the population highly dependent on the state. The government food ration is distributed to every resident and other essential goods like electricity, water, petrol and some non-ration foodstuffs are so heavily subsidised as to be free or almost free. 

Private sector employment has largely collapsed under the intense suppression of the economy and many people are now employed by the government, which has created jobs to fill some of the gap. One of my friends recently had to sell his games arcade business and join Baghdad,s ever-expanding taxi rank because, like the rest of the Iraqi leisure industry, he wasn,t making any money.

Anti-deportation action in Broadmead

Written by Kebele
- Comments Off on Anti-deportation action in Broadmead

Can you get to Broadmead for 12.30 on Friday lunchtime? 

Elvis Leka, a young asylum seeker from Kosovo, who arrived in Bristol in August 1999, aged 19, has run out of options despite the efforts of his MP Jean Corston, his employers, his solicitor Mary Shepherd, and members of the public. 

HE IS NOW VERY LIKELY TO BE DETAINED FOR DEPORTATION TO KOSOVO WHEN HE SIGNS ON AT NELSON STREET POLICE STATION ON FRIDAY. (This is the main City Centre police station; Nelson Street is on the other side of Union Street from Broadmead itself.) 

Elvis has to be at the Nelson Street police station at 12.30pm so, if you can make it, come along and meet him outside the police station at 12:20, and then accompany him inside. 

If they decide to detain him we will not be able to prevent them; but whatever they do, it will be in the fullest glare of publicity, and in full knowledge of the nature of their actions. THE MORE PEOPLE WHO COME TO THIS, THE GREATER WILL BE THE MEDIA COVERAGE, AND THE GREATER WILL BE THE SHAME OF THE ‘PUBLIC SERVANTS’ WHO ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE IMPLICATED IN THE GOVERNMENT’S DIRTY WORK. 

If you work in central Bristol, can you arrange your lunch-hour so that you can support Elvis? Ask colleagues to come too. 

If you can come, please bring some cash and/or other small item to hand to Elvis if they take him away. I understand that he uses a pay-as-you-go Vodaphone mobile – so topup cards for that might be very welcome. Once detained, any contact with his solicitor and supporters will become very expensive and very difficult. 

About Elvis Leka… 

Elvis Leka, a young asylum seeker from Kosovo, arrived here in Bristol in August 1999, aged 19. He now works at Grove House hostel for the homeless in Fishponds (asylum seekers may be granted permission to work, once they have been in the UK for six months). 

Elvis has become a major asset to the hostel. He is 
immensely hard working, has revealed a natural talent for care work, and the staff and residents of Grove House would hate to lose him. 

Elvis dreads going back to Kosovo, where he witnessed extreme, sustained and well-documented violence. Close family members were tortured and murdered, his home was burned down, and his village destroyed. After he fled, the rest of his family disappeared and the Red Cross have not been able to trace them. He has nothing and no-one to return to, other than traumatic memories.
