Globalization has reached the next level. Previously, it was driven by technical progress and economic possibilities. And suddenly now there are people involved. They are stepping out from behind the data, facts, strategies and analyses – into the midst of our lives, the midst of our society. Politics and its consequences, along with its failures, are taking on physical form, here and now.
The action alliance WE’RE DOING IT is facing up to this irreversible development.
WE’RE originally 100 women from the worlds of art, academia and public life. We’re now a growing alliance of numerous initiatives, individuals and institutions. We are united by the common goal of facing up to the challenge of worldwide migration with humanity and expertise.
DOING means: every one of us doing what he or she can do. From folding clothes to lobbyism, from class action lawsuits to sea rescue, from providing a bed for the night to construction projects, from legal advice to language support, from cultural participation to finding jobs and from personal statements to broad-based media campaigns. How we’re doing it.
IT is a movement away from pity and opinion, aid and defence mechanisms towards a culture of sharing and self-determined shaping of our world. Whether that happens without, with or against political institutions, changes every day anew in practice. We’re not afraid because we have a plan. And we’re prepared to adapt that plan to changing conditions whenever we need to. How we share.
