As a Community we consider that the anti-colonial struggle should be central to our revolutionary projections in Berlin. Therefore, it is essential to do politics in connection with our environment, finding in it a social mesh of communal resistance. A resistance that allows us to confront our responsibility of destabilise the imperial harmony in which we will never be free.
We Think-feel colonialism, as any force of dominance that considers a culture or knowledge better than others and therefore grants power of dominance among peoples. That is why we see it as the backbone that governs the hetero-patriarchal, white, classist and ableist capitalist system in which we are immersed.
We see a lack of knowledge and reflection on colonial structures in our daily routines, and we understand this is a result of the acceleration and neo-liberal hyper-individualism that governs us as a Berlin society. An acceleration, which we have even let into our declared leftist political practices, that is why our struggle often arises from the pain and sadness we suffer with our comrades.
Our political practices and revolutionary ideals are not based on identitarian conceptions; on the contrary, different systemic realities converge in AA, sharing ideals for the creation of interconnected future(s).
Our analysis of the system and the matrix of domination in which we are all immersed helps us to be able to act accordingly towards world(s) with communal autonomy(s). The material abundance of modern society costs lives. Conscious of the unjustifiable massacres, our societies choose to (re)produce this living every day: a political anaesthesia in pursuit of an individual life that constantly hangs on the increase of private profit.
We combat the anti-insurrectional policies that we recognise in various geographies. Police and territorial control tactics are repeated in Jakarta, Islamabad, Berlin or Rio de Janeiro. A repetition that writes the family tree of the police and the bourgeoisie; who, in the face of an intensified global class war, not only repress all social uprising, but also attempt to erase our revolutionary creativity in imagining other worlds and other lives.
Therefore, we do not seek to claim the right to privileges under the standards which this system has defined as such. On the contrary, we refute the idea of technical and meritocratic modern development, which makes us believe that we must all achieve the same goal in life. A mechanism that was established hundreds of years ago and operates today almost naturally, erasing in its path entire cultures, social dreams as well as life experiences and understanding. Thus, increasingly sketching a world of pretension, oblivion and impunity.
We do not accept the place that was given to us, neither of dominated nor of dominant. Standing at the heart of the classist system that seeks to numb us in the supermarket of advantages and comforts, we get up every day to build a different way of life, a communal life.
Our political struggle can only be consolidated when our existence does not affect the power of autonomies of other communes. That is why in our work the exchange and learning from/to other realities and utopias is essential. Our actions are a result of this, and if through them we make mistakes, we are happy and open to be told, since we understand our political activity as a cultural tool, and therefore as a process in constant (re)evolution.
