Afrique-Europe-Interact is a small transnational network, which was founded in October 2009. Its members are activists from Mali, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. At the moment ca. 40 groups from Mali are part of our network. Most of them provide practical support for deported persons; several groups were founded by people who had been deported themselves. Apart from providing direct help, many of the groups focus on development policies in their everyday work, since one of their main goals is to help deported people to develop new means of existence. The participating German groups are mainly antiracist grassroots initiatives and self-organised refugee groups. Amongst them are the Caravan for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants, The Voice Refugee Forum, the Initiative in Gedenken an Oury Jalloh, NoLager Bremen, kein mensch ist illegal Hanau, the anti-racist group Antirassistisches Plenum Blankenburg-Oldenburg and the refugees’ organisation Fluechtlingsrat Hamburg. Apart from Mali and Germany, there are also groups from Austria and the Netherlands in Afrique-Europe-Interact. One of them is the European civilians’ forum Europaeisches BuergerInnenforum from Vienna, and indicato de Obrer@s del Campo (SOC); another is the anti-racist organisation all included from Amsterdam.
