Attentats et plan Vigipirate de prévention du terrorisme : une aubaine légitimatrice
par Saïd Bouamama Principal résultat du « plan Vigipirate de prévention du terrorisme » mis en place en France après le premier attentat du RER à St-Michel le 25 juillet 1995 ? Le bilan officiel de la police parisienne cite une chute de la petite délinquance (-12,35%) et une surenchère d’interpellations d’étrangers en situation dite « irrégulière » (+25,37%). Nous sommes bien loin de la lutte anti-terroriste. Ici, l’écrivain lillois Saïd Bouamama lance un pavé dans la vitrine de ce bilan policier, afin de (...) Lire la suite...

United States. What has been the role of the African-American Church during the AIDS crisis ?
HIV Positive, Church Negative By Abigail Garcia (Diatribe Collective) AIDS is still widely considered a gay man’s disease despite the fact that the fastest growing group of HIV-positive people are women. In New York City, AIDS was the number one killer of black women between the ages of 19 and 27 in 1990. Nationally, by 1992, African American women acquired AIDS at a rate 14 times higher than white women ; for African American men the rate is three times higher than white men. The number (...)

France. Radio spots talk about AIDS, but what do they say?
"Safe sex is beautiful," says Cheb Khaled The familiar Beur FM jingle comes on. "She was timid," explains Khaled, "and I didn’t have a rubber. Good thing she did, I thought it was erotic. Safe sex is beautiful." It’s not a song (yet), it’s one of 60 spots in a new, fun campaign put together by Beur FM to better inform the Maghrebi community in France about HIV and AIDS.

Mitra Rambaran : lessons in persistence
When municipal health worker Mitra Rambaran started HIV prevention work in 1989 for the Surinamese community, she did not know any Surinamese people with HIV or AIDS. But she knew the perception of AIDS as a white problem to be a short-lived illusion. In the Hague, she began going with AIDS educators to talk to conservative Hindustani organizations about condoms and safer sex. "People came to me and said, ’Shame on you’," she recalls. "And you are Hindustani too !" Rambaran had refused to (...) Lire la suite...
Interview: Andre Reeder, a Surinamese director in Amsterdam
On 24 May 1996, Cause of Death: Nothing was seen by an audience of hundreds at the City Hall of Amsterdam. "It was a huge happening," according to director Andre Reeder, "to honor the people who are in the film in our own Surinamese way. They have stuck out their neck to give this important message." Migrants against HIV/AIDS spoke with Reeder before the screening. What was it like making Cause of Death: Nothing? It was a marvelous experience. It’s a film, in a way, about AIDS. In a way, (...)

Aan niets overleden : New film celebrates Surinamese community survival
Cause of death : Nothing A documentary by Andre Reeder (1996, 52’) Filmmaker Andre Reeder saw a friend whom he thought had AIDS, but neither he nor the friend talked about it. When Andre heard from this friend’s brother that he had died, Andre knew it was from an AIDS-related cause, but the friend’s brother was quick to say, "Oh, no, it was from nothing." It is this denial and dismissal that Andre Reeder addresses in this much needed film about the experiences of Surinamese and Indian people (...) Lire la suite...
Switzerland. A new HIV transmission conviction exposes the link between racism and public health
