Study camp: Nonviolence as a tool for social mobilization

From 11 to 15 December 2017, we welcomed an international group in a study camp on non-violent resistance.   We received a group of international SCI activists with whom we debated and reflected on the social movements in Catalonia as tools of non-violent resistance based on the discovery of different groups. We offered some activities open to the public. This was an activity that followed the international SCI assembly that have been held in Catalonia from December 6 to 10. 11th December 2017   Tired from the ICM but eager to learn more about Nonviolence, a motivated international group attended a workshop held by Felip Daza, Codirector at Novact, the International Institute for Nonviolent Action.

Bosques enteros - 35 anys SCI

Per Belen Gopégui No consigo recordar cómo me enteré de que existía el SCI. Entonces no había internet. No sé a quién o en donde preguntaría, ni tampoco qué preguntaría exactamente. Por ejemplo: ¿conoces alguna forma de escapar pero, además, haciendo algo no inútil? O, ¿conoces algún sitio donde puedan propulsarme hasta el espacio exterior y hacerme convivir con personas muy distintas y que, luego, recuerde todavía aquellos desayunos y las noches, y reír hasta tener agujetas en el estómago y cansarme de lijar paredes y vagabundear, y tropezar en común y que pasados diez, quince, treinta, años, me parezca todavía que voy a volver a casa y ahí vamos a estar, hablando y apoyándonos y desvariando mucho hasta el amanecer? No sé lo que pregunté.

Leander House, Massachussetts

Hola, em dic David, actualment tinc 26 anys, I fa 2 mesos i mig que estic realitzant el voluntariat de llarga durada aquí a Sheffield, Massachusetts.   Sempre havia volgut treballar amb persones amb necessitats especials, havia fet coses de magnituds molt petites en comparació amb això, i m'havien portat molta satisfacció personal. Estic a un projecte de l'SCI d'Estats Units a l'oest de Massachusetts que s'anomena Leander House i consisteix en compartir el dia a dia amb persones adultes amb (dis)capacitat intel·lectual.

Cooperem en la diversitat

Ja fa 5 anys que el districte de Ciutat Vella organitza les jornades "Cooperem en la diversitat", un espai de reflexió, debat i apropament a la realitat quotidiana de les persones amb diversitat funcional. La finalitat del projecte és reflexionar sobre les situacions que es troben les persones amb diversitat funcional i buscar un apropament a les situacions quotidianes que viuen. Al llarg d'aquests anys s'ha convertit en un espai per a la reflexió i sensibilització des de l'enfocament del "dret als drets", entrant en diàleg sobre les dificultats, oportunitats i capacitats que han descobert a partir de la seva (dis)capacitat.

On the 25 of September we start the day by discussing control, detention and expulsion of migrants. Aurea Martin shared with us her knowledge and experience as an activist. We also talked about ethnic profiling, which happens in Spain. Ethnic profiling is when police randomly stop people who they believe are without papers, which is forbidden by the law. Aurea told us that the Spanish government spends a lot of money (over 11 million Euros) on deportation, of migrants, every year. There are two kinds of large scale deportation flights: Deportation on regular flights, when people who are being deported share flight with passengers who travels for pleasure and the other kind is massive deportation flights which are organized by the government or by Frontex to deport dozen of immigrants by force, against their own will.

Today Xoan Perillan came to talk about his experience of the southern border of Spain. This was a really interesting topic for us because some us of have never heard of the situation in the Southern border and his presentation really opened up our eyes. We talked about Ceuta and Melilla, which are Spanish territories in Africa. In the light of this conversation we talked about the borders not only as physical and geographical limitations but also as mental an artificial borders. In the Southern border of Spain, Sub-Saharan migrants have been trying to cross the borders to reach the two cities, because when they are in a Spanish zone, they can seek for asylum in Spain at least in theory.
