Aims of the Campaign

The AubonneSupportGroup is less a fix working group then individuals working on the campaign in different places in Europe.

As aims for the campaign we set the following:

Inside the movement:

  1. Make the case known We are glad about all help with distribution, fundraising, press work, contacts and happy to help other people out.
  2. Encourage an internal discussion about how to deal with the emotional consequences of repression (trauma, fear etc.), how we can improve the support at a collective level and how we can deal and prepare ourselves better at a personal level.
  3. Improve networking on an European level between anti-repression groups, support groups, human right collectives, etc. and encourage the exchange of experiences of past and current cases aiming to share skills and evaluate what we have learnt.

We hope to reach these aims through:

  • Talktour with the video in April through Switzerland, Parts of Italy, Germany and Spain
  • Antirepression-Days in June in Geneva (26./27.6.) with presence at the trial on the 28th
  • Written materials, web, contacts etc.
