Series of events to mark the International Day against Police Violence

15mrz Deutschland Dresden

Information about our events for the 15.03.

The International Day Against Police Violence commemorates March 15, 1996, when Swiss police brutally attacked two children, ages 11 and 12. Since then, every year on March 15, people around the world take to the streets to remember those who died and to oppose police violence.
This year coincides with the International Week Against Racism from March 14-27.
That's why we don't want to do just one event on the 15th, but 3 events on 3 days. We would like to invite you to join us.
We will start on March 15th with a rally at Albertplatz. There we want to commemorate people who were murdered in police custody and bring our criticism of the police and the state to the streets.
There will also be musical accompaniment by FaulenzA.
The following day, March 16, we invite you to the Hole Of Fame. The collective "Désarmons-les!" will give their lecture "State violence and crowd control in France". It will be about an analysis of the French police and law enforcement policy within the last 50 years.
Finally, we will show the film "Dear Future Children" at Thalia.
The project accompanies activists during protests in Hong Kong against the Beijing-affiliated administration under Carrie Lam, protests in Chile against social inequality in the country, in Uganda, at the Fridays for Future protests for climate justice, and at the C40 World Mayors Summit 2019 in Copenhagen. In the context of the protests, the activists and their social movements experience repression and police violence, which are exercised by the police in different dimensions.
We hope for active participation and call on you: Support those affected by police checks, do not let yourself be intimidated and stand in solidarity with people when they experience violence by the police.
