Workers' Dhaba in Delhi

Workers' Dhaba in Delhi

Support the working people of Delhi NCR! Contribute for Workers' Dhaba! The Workers' Dhaba is a citizens' initiative run by volunteers from across Delhi. Our aim is to ensure food distribution in the city’s working class areas where, due to the health crisis and lockdown, people have have lost their sources of livelihood. In the wake of the health and subsistence crisis triggered by the rapid spread of Covid-19 in India, the Citizen Collective for Humanitarian Relief, in association with the Centre for Education & Communication, is organizing emergency distribution of food/ration among the working-class families of Delhi NCR. As part of this initiative we have set up our first Workers' Dhaba (kitchen) in Delhi University. We are providing rations and/or cooked meals to those families who have lost all source of income following the complete nation-wide lockdown ordered by the Indian Government on March 25. The cost for one family’s meal (5 persons) is around Rs. 250, and as of now we are able to reach about 800 people every day. We need your help and financial support to sustain and expand this effort and set up similar kitchens in other neighborhoods. For more details, write to us or check our Facebook page - Workers' Dhaba Any contribution would be extremely helpful. Do not hesitate to get in touch and spread the word! Thank you for your support and solidarity, Citizen Collective for Humanitarian Relief & Centre for Education & Communication (CEC)

CONSTRUCTION DU REFUGE SAVE POUR LES LOULOUS

CONSTRUCTION DU REFUGE SAVE POUR LES LOULOUS

Ce projet représente un nouveau départ pour nos loulous, un moyen de les mettre à l'abri, voilà pourquoi nous avons besoin de vous pour leur offrir un refuge aux normes où ils seront en sécurité ! Ceci est un appel à votre générosité, à votre grand coeur, pour la construction d'un refuge SAVE pour nos loulous. C'est la seule solution pour continuer à sauver les loulous de Roumanie de manière durable et à les rapatrier vers la Belgique/France où ils pourront vivre dignement. Sans vous, ce projet ne pourra pas aboutir ! Notre projet de construction - sur 1 hectare :Nous allons constuire notre refuge sur une parcelle d'un peu moins de 1000 m2 sur une colline, derrière le siège de l'association où nos loulous seront en sécurité. Nous devrons ensuite obtenir un permis d'urbanisme, une autorisation de l'Agence de protection de l'environnement et une autorisation de construire.Voici les différentes étapes de construction et les aménagements aux normes que nous prévoyons. Nous pourrons vous donner des éléments plus précis dès que nous aurons fait un cahier des charges avec notre entrepreneur. Aidez-nous à réaliser ce projet à taille humaine pour continuer à sauver des loulous de Roumanie ! Grâce à Vous, ce projet pourra voir le jour et nous pourrons continuer notre action dans la région : stérilisations, soins, vaccins, adoptions, et espérons-le à long terme, changement des mentalités. Merci pour votre soutien ! L'équipe de Save & Hope

A call for help for Martin Veise

A call for help for Martin Veise

HELP! No help for severely disabled during COVID19.This post is NOT about the Coronavirus, but about how the system may withdraw help from the weakest citizens.While @Xavier Bettel promises unlimited resources to cover those who will fall out of their jobs due to COVID19, severely handicapped and the weakest citizens lose all help, regardless of their individual situation, condition and dependence.I express my gratitude towards the public initiatives during the pandemic and I am sincerely happy for those who will get financial aid in case of employment termination.So, briefly, here’s what I’m talking about:My uncle, @Martin, suffered a massive brain stroke in November 2018. The stroke was *not* threated by the Robert Schuman Hospital that Martin was taken to. Martin was left paralyzed down through his left side and with severe cognitive damages. Essentially Martin’s wife Anne and his four kids lost him that day. Martin is not even remotely the same person anymore.After being left untreated under miserable conditions at the hospital for a month, Martin was transferred to the Rehazenter. I have previously written about the conditions at the hospital and Rehazenter here: lux-patient.com, and won’t get into the details of the disastrous conditions at the two institutions.*I would however like to underline, that Martin was declared traumatized by his stay at the Rehazenter.*-> This means, that the conditions were so extremely miserable at the Rehazenter, that Martin’s condition as a patient not only declined severely, but additional damage was added to his brain.Martin received 2 months of rehabilitation in Denmark. One of the two months spent de-traumatizing him... After the two months, Martin was dispatched with a comprehensive report explaining his needs as a patient and how he should receive further treatment. The conclusion of the report is clear - Martin still needs intensive rehabilitation in order to be able to live the rest of his life at an acceptable standard. Acceptable standard defined by being able to walk or go to the toilet for example.Martin has been home in Luxembourg since August and has not received rehabilitation since then. Myself and Anne was taking care of Martin at home throughout August and September - the report *clearly* states that Martin needed help 24/7. Practically this means that he needs a team of nurses around him, as well as physiotherapists, ergo therapists, a psychologist and/or psychiatrist and a doctor with neuroscientific knowledge.Despite the urgency, we were not able to get a meeting with Assurance Dependance before October.The amount of responsibility for such a weak patient, with such needs, is beyond comprehensible. My aunt Anne is doing blood tests, regulating blood thinning medicine and all other medications for Martin.After tasting the mud of rock bottom, we at least got some help assigned by Assurance Dependence and by the end of 2019 Martin could start going to a daycare facility in Rollingergrund. *This help has been withdrawn with effect from march 17th, 2020.*Martin hasn’t had a shower for almost a week now. Martin has still not had a chance to rehabilitate. Anne is taking care of Martin 24/7, while trying to homeschool their 3/4 kids who are still in school. No help is provided.ZERO.I would like to underline, that we have not received ANY proactive help from the authorities. This includes any and all doctors we have been in touch with and the health authorities / CNS.You must fight for what you are entitled to by law and you must figure that out yourself. No guidance has been offered at ANY point since November 2018. We had to proactive ask for information about the stroke itself, the further process, what could be done etc.On top of the described problems, there’s no help to get from any authority. We have contacted every instance we could, as well as the Family minister, who referred back to the Rehazenter for help.As a patient, you have a LOT of additional expenses and the public coverage does not correspond to your normal salary, so effectively it means that you will have much less cash available.Now, one should think, that the loss of a husband and father to 4 should be more than enough to work with and that financial troubles should be the least to worry about.This is not the case in this country. Should you be as unlucky as my uncle, Martin, you WILL have a reduced income and much higher expenses.The social authorities cannot offer any help financially, as we are too well off. They recommend that we move out of the country, regardless of 3 of the 4 children being born and raised here.The banks wont extend credit as we are way too poor.The European school will not offer ANY deduction in their school fees. Changing school wouldbe incredible hard for the youngest kids and they would lose 2 years of their respective life’s due to the new language they’d need to adapt to.The insurance has covered absolutely nothing during all this. And I can list example after example.Now, what undeniably will happen, UNLESS something is being done, is that my family will be forced out of the country due to the lack of help from the government, despite contributing to the society for almost 20 years.This would mean that Anne and her 4 kids have lost their husband and father, that the kids will have to change school during their grief and give up 2 years of their life, the family will be forced to leave their home and attempt to successfully move WHILE taking care of a 24/7 patient who needs intensive rehabilitation AND homeschooling 3 kids. This isn’t possible.Let me get to my final words for this round.Imagine yourself in the same situation. Imagine that your spouse, or child, or parent suffers a massive stroke and you would have to go through the same. Imagine, if you had to see your dearest being unable to move or speak, yet being severely mistreated. Imagine loosing your home and telling your children, that they’d have to move school knowing that it costs 2 years of their lives.It’s a horrible thought... and living it is worse.We have literally tried to seek help from the authorities in ANY way possible and we don’t know how to get help at this point.Here’s what you can do to help us:* You can share this post to spread the word* Those who would like to help us financially can donate through this link: https://www.leetchi.com/c/martinveiseThe fundraiser has been requested by several friends of the family. We are forever grateful for the support that you are all giving. This is bright light during dark times. Lastly, I’d like to mention, that the during the last meeting we had with a social worker, it was proposed that we have friends or family take care of Martin on weekends, so that Anne and the KIDS?! Could work. The youngest boys are 12 years of age. We reminded her that we live in 2020 and not 1920 and she then took that back. She had absolutely no words or advice to give. This clearly suggest how dire this situation is...The above is me objectively documenting our situation. I am working on a comprehensive complaint to the court of human rights as well as the EU. This entails detailed information and documentation as well as evidence supporting the potential breaches of law.My recommendation: Hedge yourself. This is real and can happen to anyone.My sincerest gratitude and appreciation towards those who decided to help and especially those who continue to provide help!

Water is Life

Water is Life

During the health crisis of COVID-19, the indigenous Wayuu people of Colombia, are facing a tragedy, they are not able to get enough water to survive. The people of Cabo de la Vela make a living mainly from tourism, selling handicrafts and fishing to provide fresh produce to the hotels and restaurants in the small village.During this world lockdown their livelihood is gone. No tourists sadly means no income.The families cannot pay for the tankers that deliver water to this arid region.With no access to water, such an essential life source, the lives of these communities are threatened. This concern is even greater than the coronavirus for these isolated tribes... Who are we ?Emma and Ompi, a young Franco-Colombian couple, owners of a small kitesurf school, Cabo Kite Center, in the village of Cabo de la Vela.For 2 years we have been living among the indigenous Wayùu tribe. We share the daily life of these people who are sadly forgotten by the Colombian government. Some humanitarian aid has emerged since the start of the COVID 19 quarantine but no project seems to focus on the donation of water which, for us, is absolutely essential! We initially decided to contact customers who have visited our kitesurf center in the past years in order to raise funds for the cause, then we thought of pushing the project further by creating this crowdfunding project to raise your awareness and call upon your generosity.Our project is straightforward !Raise funds to finance the distribution of water in the hamlets located around Cabo de la Vela.For those who are not familiar with the area, the village has no irrigation system.Water is supplied by tanker trucks which fill the basins where the water is stored, this is the only drinking water supply used also for washing and cooking...Some of the poorest get some water by walking long distances to reach natural pools which are also used to water their small goat farms.However an additional problem is that these pools are dry at this time of the year and the first rains do not fall until November. Still not convinced? We have teamed up with entrepreneurial friends from the region to offer you discounts on our catering services, hotels and of course courses and rentals in our kitesurfing center in return for your participation however small.Donate 20€ and receuve 15% discount in our centers.Just claim your discount by sending us a message! "Sounds good but where does my money go ?"There are 7 surrounding communities in total:Pujuru - Ishotshimana - Atutului - Kousochon - Palerü - Palamana - Aipir Each community has about 10 families with an average of two 500 litre tanks to stock water per family. The community of Ishotshimana is the biggest with approximately 30 families.A tanker truck can carry a load of 10,000 liters of water. We would therefore need a total of 9 tanker trucks to provide a week's supply of water.Each tanker truck is worth around € 100, which would correspond to a total of at least € 1.000. Hoping to be able to supply these communities at least twice, we have set our target at € 2.000.If our project is successful, a contribution of 4% will be paid to the Leetchi platform,i.e. € 2.080 to be collected in total.

COVID-19 help-project El Salvador

COVID-19 help-project El Salvador

Hello everyone & welcome to this cause! IF YOU DONATE, PLEASE LEAVE ALWAYS A MESSAGE. JUST SAYING YOUR NAME SO I CAN HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR EMAIL AND I CAN UPDATE YOU. During the COVID-19 crisis we have all been affected! As Salvadorian I felt worried about how such a poor country would react to this emergency, since most of the Salvadoreans economically survive with their daily incomes. If you are reading this, you are from the lucky ones (like me!) and even though it is hard-time, we can rely on our monthly income to surpass this crisis. That's why my family and I started to put together emergency food baskets filled with food for one week for more or less 4 persons for people who have lost the job or haven't sold anything during the day.1 emergency food basket contains * 5 pounds rice* 5 pounds beans * 1 liter oil* 5 pasta packs * 2 sauce packs * 1 pound of salt * 4 instant soups * 1 pound cornflour for tortillas * 1 pack of cookies * 1 pack of cereal the cost of goods of such a kit (packed in a reusable bag) is 20 USD. All components have been/will be bought from market stands and not from the supermarket! If you want to help a family donate a kit! Or donate however much you can. We will notify you to whom did your pack go! Thank you & put your name so I can send you the picture! 💙All good things that go around, come around. 🇸🇻 DISCLAIMER: If you try to pay with a debit card from El Salvador, it can happen that Leetchi can not proceed with the payment and your bank will block the amount but the transaction would fail. This amount will be unblocked after! DONT WORRY! Please try again with a credit card. This action has been privately organized by a private family in El Salvador. We can not issue a donation receipt. If you have questions please leave a message.

Ça roule pour Lulu

Ça roule pour Lulu

L’association Ça roule pour Lulu a vu le jour en novembre 2016 à Saint-Saturnin-du-Bois en Charente-Maritime. L’objectif est de lever des fonds afin d’améliorer le quotidien de Lucas, un petit garçon handicapé de 9 ans. Lucas, surnommé affectueusement Lulu par ses proches, est un petit garçon pas comme les autres. Il est né grand prématuré à seulement 28 semaines. Il pesait 1,2 kg et mesurait 37 cm. Cette grande prématurité a provoqué des lésions cérébrales qui ont touché la zone de psychomotricité et a entraîné une hémiplégie droite. Mais les soucis de Lucas ne se sont pas arrêtés là. Quelques jours après sa naissance, les médecins lui ont diagnostiqué une maladie génétique rénale rare, un diabète insipide néphrogénique.Depuis Lucas a bien grandi et ses besoins également. Il faut notamment penser à aménager sa maison pour qu’il puisse circuler avec son fauteuil roulant. En projet, l’extension de sa chambre avec une douche et un w.-c. adapté à son handicap (les travaux devraient commencer au printemps 2019 grâce à l'argent récolté depuis la création de l'association). Il faudra aussi rendre accessible les abords de la maison et adapter un véhicule à Lucas. Ces travaux sont estimés à 70 000 €, un coût trop élevé pour la famille aux revenus modestes et les aides sont peu nombreuses.C’est pourquoi la famille a décidé de créer l’association afin de lever des fonds pour améliorer le quotidien de Lucas. De nombreuses manifestations sont à venir en 2020 (soirée théâtre, marché fermier et artisanal, 4e édition de la randonnée semi nocturne...) pour augmenter la cagnotte.Merci à vous, qui avez fait un don ou qui avez donné de votre temps pour améliorer la vie de Lucas.Pour en savoir plus sur l'association, l'histoire de Lucas, ou encore sur le planning de nos prochaines manifestations, rendez-vous sur notre site Internet http://caroulepourlulu.e-monsite.com/ ou sur notre page Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Ça-roule-pour-Lulu-115857582219000/

Ambasada Rog

Ambasada Rog

Community space for refugees, Ljubljana, Slovenia Ambasada Rog is a community space run for the last two years by refugees, activists, journalists, cultural workers, lawyers, unemployed, parents and everyone who believes in solidarity and the power of a community. We understand Ambasada Rog as a space of mutual support and we all work on a volunteer basis. Our work includes numerous activities: daily, we cook and provide a free meal for 20-25 people, we provide social and legal support to asylum seekers; we organize campaigns and protests, as well as educational workshops and events like exhibitions, concerts, dance classes and excursions. Since we wish to remain politically independent, we work outside the institutional framework and rely mostly on our solidarity network and our supporters. They are the ones who most effectively participate in our efforts. We invite you to become part of this network and support our work with your contribution. Any donation is welcome and it will be fully used for our activities. Most of the expenses go for cooking free meals and offering social support to migrants and asylum seekers, who are left without basic means. Our activities take place in the Autonomous Factory Rog, a former bicycle factory which has become a complex community with over fifteen active collectives and spaces. Since 2016 the space is under threat of eviction by the municipality which also filed a lawsuit against eight activists. A small part of every donation is thus also used to cover the legal expenses which allow us to continue using this space. Your support will enable us to continue with our activities - to mutually create an open community and confront our country's most inhumane policies. For all our activities please visit our Facebook page as it is the best source of daily updates and on our work. Or come visit us at Rog factory in Ljubljana! Skupnostni prostor za begunce, Ljubljana Ambasada Rog je prostor, ki ga že dve leti skupaj upravljamo begunci, aktivisti, novinarji, kulturni delavci, pravniki, brezposelni, starši in vsi, ki verjamemo v solidarnost in moč skupnosti. Ambasado Rog razumemo kot prostor druženja in podpore. Prav vsi delujemo prostovoljno. Naše delo obsega dnevno kuhanje brezplačnih obrokov za 20-25 ljudi, nudimo tudi socialno in pravno pomoč prosilcem in prosilkam za azil, organiziramo kampanje in proteste, izobraževalne delavnice ter dogodke kot so razstave, koncerti, plesni tečaji ter izleti. Ker želimo ostati politično neodvisni, delujemo izven okvirov institucij in se v prvi vrsti zanašamo na solidarnostno mrežo podpornikov. Tudi vi lahko postanete del te mreže in nas podprete z donacijo. Vsak prispevek je dobrodošel in bo v celoti porabljen za naše delovanje. Največji strošek predstavljata kuhanje brezplačnih obrokov ter socialna pomoč prosilcem za azil, ki ostajajo brez osnovnih sredstev za preživetje. Naše aktivnosti potekajo znotraj avtonomne Tovarne Rog, nekdanje tovarne koles in danes kompleksne skupnosti, v kateri deluje okoli 15 organiziranih kolektivov. Od leta 2016 občina grozi z izselitvijo, vložila pa je tudi civilno tožbo proti osmim aktivistom. Manjši del vsake donacije se zato uporabi tudi za te administrativne stroške, ki nam omogočajo nadaljno uporabo prostora. Z vašo podporo bomo lahko še naprej nadaljevali z aktivnostmi. Pomagajte nam pri sogradnji odprte skupnosti in platforme, ki se spopada z najbolj nehumanimi politikami naše države. Več o nas, o naših dejavnostih in novostih najdete na Facebooku. Ali pa nas obiščite v Tovarni Rog v Ljubljani!

Today more than 300 indigenous people are living on the streets of Bogota with no money for food or medicine. 🇫🇷Le texte en fançais en bas🇫🇷 During the Colombian armed conflict, more than 70,000 indigenous had to leave their homes and seek refuge in the big cities. The main income of these refugees has often been selling handmade crafts on the streets, and now due to the COVID-crisis, they have no income at all. Thanks to your donation we will be able to provide food, groceries and basic hygienic items, to allow them to make it through this difficult crisis.

The Shade - Palestinians families COVID-19 Support - Phase 1

The Shade - Palestinians families COVID-19 Support - Phase 1

Message de la Coordinatrice FREEDOM RUNNERSLes responsables de la sécurite à Hébron ont confirmé à l'Association un plafond de transfert de fond limité à € 1000 à transférer en deux fois au moins.The Shade a donc réduit l'objectif de cagnotte de € 2500 à € 1000 jusqu'à nouvel ordre Nous nous sentons limités dans nos libertés par cette nouvelle réalité sous le confinement dû au Coronavirus, les Palestiniens eux sont très gravement atteints et se retrouvent confrontés à un dilemme difficile: Se nourir ou préserver leur santé. «Chaque jour sans travail nous rapproche un peu plus d'un désastre financier», explique Kareem, un travailleur de Bethléem, quand on lui demande comment le confinement affecte sa vie.«C'est pas comme si j'avais des économies sur lesquelles je pouvais compter pour nous faire tenir le mois», dit-il. "Pas de travail, pas d'argent." Gaza a annoncé l'Etat d'urgence, luttant pour imposer le confinement et éviter le scénario catastrophique d'une épidémie de coronavirus.Avec deux millions de personnes et à peine assez de kits test pour 200, 20 appareils de ventilation disponibles, ils ne pourront tout simplement pas faire face. La ville de Hébron, en Cisjordanie, est désormais en confinement total pour empêcher la propagation du Covid-19.Dans ce contexte difficile du confinement, les jeunes d'une petite association sportive locale FREEDOM RUNNERS se mobilisent. Leur objectif: venir en aide aux plus démunis d'Hébron en distribuant des colis alimentaires aux familles incapables d'acheter de la nourriture. Ils contribuent également à limiter la pandémie en atteignant les plus vulnérables. . L'association: Amateurs de sport, créée par les jeunes pour les jeunes en 2017, cette jeune association est située à Hébron. Elle motive des jeunes hommes et femmes à faire du sport et permet à chacun d'intervenir et de s'exprimer. Grâce à des activités sociales, FREEDOM RUNNERS motivent les jeunes à rejoindre le groupe, à faire du sport, se faire des amis et subvenir aux besoins de leur communauté.

Refugee & Asylum Communities Greece/Turkey Border

Refugee & Asylum Communities Greece/Turkey Border

I would like to draw your attention to the current political situation that has been unfolding in Greece over the past number of years but has now reached a critical point in recent weeks. Horrendous images are emerging from the Greek/Turkish border and from the Island of Lesvos, Samos and Chios in Greece. In what appears to be the beginning of the collapse of the contentious EU-Turkey deal, last week Turkey opened its land borders whilst Greece has been rebuilt and re-enforced it's land and sea borders with direct and dire consequences for asylum-seeking communities who are now camping out alongside the border buffer zone at Greece's’ land border, a gateway to Europe. The 2016 Turkey-European Union agreement obliges Ankara to stop migrants from crossing the Aegean in exchange for financial supports.In November 2019, the Greek government announced that it was shutting down its “open” refugee camps on the Islands in order to establish “closed” detention camps. Conditions in the camps on the islands have proven to be deadly. The Moria camp with an original holding capacity of 3000, now holds a figure closer to 30,000 with inhumane conditions and a call from the UNHCR for a complete evacuation of the camp with Lesvos being described as “a floating prison” or “Europe’s Guantanamo Bay” as the Mayor of Lesvos has described it.These vulnerable communities are being used as political pawns as Turkey flexes its muscles and demonstrates a clear political message to the European Union. Reports from NGOS’s and volunteer organisations are flooding social media, stating excessive and disproportionate force is being used with Refugee/Asylum/Migrant communities and NGO organisations at the land and sea borders. Violent clashes and tensions are surmounting between Golden Dawn fascists, Greek locals, Refugee communities, NGOs, and volunteers. These tensions have triggered the closure of frontline refugee services.The Greek government has now suspended all asylum seeker applications for the month of March. A move is which is unprecedented and illegal. The criminalisation of these vulnerable communities in the name of “preserving” the European Union is nothing short of barbaric with border control measures now including shooting at rubber dinghies as they attempt to cross the seas (video footage included). I will be travelling to Greece for an extended period to work in solidarity and in partnership with several astute grassroots organisations working with Refugee/Asylum/Migrant communities in Athens and on the islands. I will be developing and delivering educational programmes with Refugee/Asylum/Migrant communities in Greece. Any funds raised; I would like to split between Lesvos with the work I will be doing with a community integration educational programme based in Athens.To keep up to date with what is going on, I recommend the following social media sites “The Aegean Sea Report” on Facebook, and “RefuComm” again on Facebook. Both groups are well established and have access to a variety of resources, sources and updates which are quite accurate. Funds raised will go towards medical supplies, blankets, food, sleeping bags, classroom necessities, whiteboard, printer, and school bags. An extended thank you to those that supported the last fundraiser for Refugee/Asylum/Migrant communities in Paris. The funds raised went towards some sleeping bags, pairs of shoes and food meals for over 100 minors. SourcesCaoimhe Butterly: Inside the refugee camp (no date).

ne pas perdre mon pays trouvé

ne pas perdre mon pays trouvé

Le 20 février 2020 je reçois une lettre.Cette lettre m’annonce le refus de séjour en France.Cela me fait d’une personne ‘sans papier’ du jour au lendemain.Alors que qui je suis et ce que je suis n’a pas changé. Je suis toujours quelqu’un qui fait des blagues obscènes, qui boit beaucoup, qui aime créer, qui aime la vie, ma vie ici. Je suis arrivée en France en 2013, admise cette même année à l’École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts à la Villa Arson où j’obtiens les diplômes de licence et master en art. Étant donné que ma pratique artistique a pris un virage pour se loger principalement en vidéo / film, j’ai décidé d'ajouter des études en cinéma à celles que je faisais déjà.Durant mes années de master à l’école d’art, j’entame un double cursus en Licence de cinéma à Paris 8. J’en suis très heureuse et fière de ma décision de ce double cursus malgré ses obstacles et ses difficultés. C’était une décision ambitieuse, mais qui a vraiment porté ses fruits résulté dans ma création; qui s’inscrit quelque part entre l’art plastique et le cinéma.J’ai obtenu mon master en art avec félicitations du jury en 2018.Ma carrière d’artiste-réalisatrice a débuté dès les premiers jours de 2019 avant la fin de mes études en cinéma qui était prévue en juin 2019. Cette année de 2019, mon dernier court-métrage a été programmé tant dans le circuit de l’art contemporain que dans celui du cinéma: au Théâtre des Variétés à Monaco sur invitation du Nouveau Musée National de Monaco et l’Institut National d’Audiovisuel de Monaco, à la Cinémathèque Française, à la Nuit Blanche Paris, à Résonance Biennale de Lyon, au Musée National d’Art Moderne et Contemporain de Séoul et ainsi qu’aux divers festivals de film de par le monde. Avec toute cette chance qui m’a procuré enormément de joie mais qui m'a aussi pris beaucoup d’énergie et de temps, je n’ai pas réussi à obtenir mon diplôme en cinéma en 2019; je viens de le valider au premier semestre 2019/2020. Cette fameuse lettre de refus de séjour concerne ma demande de renouvellement de carte de séjour ‘étudiant’, déposée en novembre 2018 pour l’année de 2018/2019. Alors que, à cette époque, je n’avais même pas eu de redoublement dans mes études à Paris 8.Mais encore, valider un cursus de 3 ans sans redoublement peut même être difficile pour un.e français.e qui n’a pas une carrière et le travail à côté. Depuis novembre 2018, depuis 1 an et 3 mois, j’ai vécu avec une succession de récépissés de 3 mois. Je devais tous les 3 mois aller attendre devant la préfecture avant même que le jour se lève, souvent sous la pluie, (on est à Paris), pour une attente en moyenne de 8 heures, avant d’être reçue comme une paria par un agent derrière un guichet, voilà. Après 1 an et 3 mois de ce supplice angoissant, j’ai reçu cette lettre, remplie d'erreurs, qui me refuse la possibilité de séjourner en France en me suggérant gentiment de me ‘réinstaller durablement dans mon pays d’origine’. (D’ailleurs c’est une drôle d’idée de se dire que chacun doit se ranger dans sa case de départ.) La notion de soi et l’autre définie par les frontières géographiques actuelles deviendra obsolète peut-être dans pas très longtemps.Je sais qu’il vaut mieux ne pas commencer avec ce discours utopique devant le juge à l’audience, ni invoquer que je suis née le 14 juillet, et que c'est une des raisons pour lesquelles je pense personnellement que c’est le destin que m’a conduite à autant désirer vivre ici. Toute la France fête mon anniversaire avec d'extravagants feux d’artifice tous les ans, et celà sans même me facturer!) Oui. Bien entendu, j'y reviens; le juge et l’audience;je commence les recours avec une avocate. Un recours pour excès de pouvoir afin que les 3 magistrats re-examinent mon dossier et un référé pour suspendre la décision, en demandant que le juge me délivre un titre provisoire pendant la procédure pour que je puisse continuer ma vie. On me demande pourquoi je suis venue en France. Je réponds; j’aime la dose intelligente de sarcasme dans les blagues ici, j’aime me taper des discussions avec n’importe qui sur n’importe quoi et n’importe où, j’aime que les femmes aient ‘des grandes gueules’ ici, je trouve drôle et mignon la façade froide des gens qui s’ouvrent si facilement au final, je me sens libre d’être libre ici, enfin je me sens bien ici, quoi. La lettre de refus expose la deuxième raison de refus; je suis célibataire sans famille en France.Mes familles adoptives en France; mes amis, vous, ces merveilleuses rencontres que cette vie m’a permis, ne seront pas du tout contentes de lire cette lettre. Je suis aujourd’hui enracinée ici, en France. Je suis trop attachée, il est trop tard d’essayer de m’enlever ! En plus, je suis en train de réaliser un long-métrage avec le soutien du Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, de la Fondation des Artistes et de la Villa Arson. Un blockbuster qui va forcément cartonner quoi ! Mes chers personnages et mes supporteurs seront vraiment trop pas contents si je dois m’en aller et abandonner la réalisation de cette grande chose ! Ce recours va être une bataille longue et coûteuse. Il va durer 10-12 mois avec la meilleur offre de la meilleure avocate qui s’élève à 1,680€. J’en étais assez fière de pouvoir payer le loyer à Paris chaque mois en exerçant mon métier d’artiste mais je ne sais vraiment point point point d’où je pourrais sortir cette somme d’argent aujourd’hui. C’est pour cela que je me permets aujourd’hui, avec l'humilité, d’ouvrir ce pot pour les honoraires d’avocate.Un jour je pourrai claquer 1,680€ pour un ‘humble’ apéro avec vous comme si c’était seulement 16.80€ mais hélas, je n’ai pas encore gagné la Palme d’Or, ni l'Oscar comme mon compatriote. Si on m’enlève d’ici aujourd’hui, ce jour viendra encore plus tard; or on aimerait quand même faire ça avant le déambulateur avec les balles de tennis antidérapantes, non ? En espérant que le recours débouche sur une décision positive, je prépare ma demande pour le passeport talent en tant qu’artiste. Je voudrais continuer à vivre et créer avec vous ici. Je vous remercie infiniment de m’aimer et me supporter des fois. Si vous pouvez mettre ce que vous pouvez dans ce pot, ça m’aiderait beaucoup financièrement et psychologiquement pendant que je me bats pour ma vie ici.Je serai gentille, et je serai une amie, une copine, une meuf comme ça, un mec (sait-on jamais aujourd’hui!) et une artiste dont vous pourrez s’enorgueillir ! Merci d’être là. Merci pour votre aide.

Daily wage working families in Iran need help during COVID-19 outbreak

Daily wage working families in Iran need help during COVID-19 outbreak

Amid the shock, pain and fear of the novel Coronavirus, Iran, one of the most affected countries by the virus, has also been suffering from crippling American and international sanctions for years. These sanctions have made thousands of local businesses vanish and reversed the previously decreasing rate of poverty in this country, endangering the livelihood of millions of Iranians. On top of the international isolation, Iranian government has been the embodiment of incompetence and discrepant statistics since the beginning of the outbreak by not shutting down pilgrim sites, offices, banks, and not quarantining the city the outbreak started from and even worse than that by mocking the international measures taken to limit the spread and misinformation campaigns on state TV that lead to the public not taking the disease seriously and continue their daily activities. Since millions are daily-waged in Iran, they suffer from biological poverty if they don’t leave home every day. By only 20 euros you can support one whole family to have acceptable quality of nutrition for a few days.We are directly connected to over fifty families and can send your support directly to them so they can supply themselves for one month without needing to work outside. Since the sanctions have made it impossible to send money to Iran, we have used our network of trusted people that are willing to help with the transaction. You can share the joy of getting through the hard times of quarantine by enabling at least one more family in a highly affected part of the world to also be able to stay safe.
