[transversal] new issue of transversal web journal: flee erase territorialize

transversal web journal

The refugee protests in many EU countries have succeeded in drawing  widespread public attention and produced a strong media echo. There is  hope that the activism of the refugees and their supporters will at  least produce improvements in regards to the violation of human rights  in asylum procedures which even contradict rules established by the  Geneva Convention.

However, the protests far surpass the legal  realm. They raise the fundamental question if and how today’s  governmental procedures are compatible with democracy, if and  how  democracy can be viewed and realized in a globalized order that is  influenced by dramatic social, economical and political injustices.

In whatever the “we” of those with documents may consist, genuine democratic citizenship today can only be invented /with/ those who have no documents, with Sans-Papiers. In this sense fleeing is a movement  that erases the traces and mechanisms of identification, but at the same  time it also means to take refuge – not as an object or a victim, but  as self-determined occupation of territories, be they protest camps,  churches or new homes.
