UNITED E-NEWS 25/5/07 - INTERNATIONAL REFUGEE DAY - 20 JUNE 2007

CREATE YOUR OWN EXHIBITION DURING YOUR ACTIVITIES FOR THE REFUGEE
CAMPAIGN ON THE 20th OF JUNE.
NEW on our site:
http://www.unitedagainstracism.org/pages/list-exhibition.htm

The on-going campaign of UNITED for Intercultural Action The 'Fatal
Realities of Fortress Europe' is developing a new project called "The
List Exhibition" *: a poster collection of some representative cases
compiled from our UNITED List of 8855 documented refugee deaths (pdf 280
Kb).

These posters are composed with some of the articles we collect in our
archive during our daily work and during our searches to protest against
European immigration policies.

We ask you to use the posters - available at 
http://www.unitedagainstracism.org/pages/list-exhibition.htm#1 print
them in A3 format and hang them** in your University, your office, the
Library of your town, etc. - or print them on A4 format as a reader for
media and politicians, with the full list of refugee deaths.

All these stories are provided to give a human face to the campaign 'The
Fatal Realities of 'Fortress Europe'.

We believe it is important to spread this material within all UNITED
network, to show that the victims of Fortress Europe are not 'only' 8855
numbers on a list, but individuals with a background, a life and hopes.

Some of the posters we decided to publish are not in English. We think
this project is a useful tool to raise awareness throughout all European
Countries: for this reason UNITED asks you to cooperate with us by (keep
on) sending articles in your language connected with refugee deaths so
we can improve our project!

You can also order posters, stickers, postcards and info material to use
for campaigning, up to 2 kilos are for free. Order form (rtf 8kB)


*The List was a project by the artist Banu Cennetoglu. For this project
the UNITED List was displayed as a poster campaign in 110 billboards at
busstops (gif) throughout the city of Amsterdam for the duration of two
weeks, March 14th-March 28th 2007. The poster campaign did not contain
any advertising, but the List itself (for an impression on the event,
see the pictures). The purpose of the project was to confront a general
audience with this crucial document by making it visible within the
public sphere.

**  We remember you can use all UNITED material free of copy right! But
mention as source (UNITED www.unitedagainstracism.org) and keep us
informed, send pictures etc.
