About Rosa Menkman
I like to take photos, make movies and read about new media and art. Last year I graduated on internet art (wrote my master thesis on the internet collective Jodi). Now I am in the Research Master media studies. My blog my Flickr my Del.icio.us my Blip.tv


just a simple translation of a flyer that I found at the Network Cultures Winter Camp conference.
On the 28th of February 25 people went on hunger strike, because they have no other way to oppose the regime of detention while their only ‘crime’ is not having the right documents.
In 2005, 11 people got killed in a fire at the Schiphol detention center. Their deaths were a tragic consequence of the Dutch immigrant rulings, policies and laws that still rely on exclusion, chasing, detention and deportation of migrants that were simply in search of better futures or wanted to be world citizens just like we are. This regime has to change.
