Le manifeste des manifestes

This is the manifesto we (Alan Twitchell & Collectif Inouite) wrote together with the people of Bblacboxx in Basel.

Le manifeste des manifestes

We have had Mickael Jackson
he says they don't really care about us
of course this is true as long as it is necessary to say things like
black lives matter

And we have had Lana Del Rey
she says she feels like she is fucking crazy

And we have had Pina Bausch who says :
just because i speak slowly does no mean everything i say is important

And we have had Tiken Jah Fakoly who said many things
and one of the things he said is :
open the borders

Let us try for once not to be right
There is no ultimate truth

After all everyone dances to his own personal boomboom

Yes to more music
Yes to more football on the street
Yes to more sugar for Bblackboxx

Let us try for once not to be right
There is no ultimate truth

There are ultimate truths
assholes exist
ignorant assholes exist too

No to regulation
Let us out of the camp
Let us help, keep us busy
Get to know us

If you walk from Erytrea, Macedonia, Marocco, Afganistan, Nigeria, Syria, or wherever
you have many reasons to build a new home and to have a better future
Give us the chance to stay, so we can fullfil our dreams

A life without a friend and family is like a night without a moon

No to the heroic
No to the anti-heroic

There's a proverb in Algeria saying :
the only thing that stays from the river are the stones

Change will come
don't be afraid of your insignifiance
Maybe it will be a hero, or a singer, or a movie star
but the people who make Bblackboxx also make a change and a difference

You need more naive curiosity
naivity creates intensity
Life is not about exercising
Exercising is superficial
No to identification

Get us involved
Let us do something relevant

Be bold
Be passionate
Be adventurous

We are heroes
But we are heroes of a new kind of heroism

Yes to expression
Yes to invention

There is a ghost in Europe

Some people give poetic and philosophical statements and the proof is your body
Don't force
Courage and disobediance are the center of our poetry

There is a ghost in Europe

A reality without complex, without paranoia, without prostitution, without prison

No to structural violence
No to vegetarianism
No to carnivorism
No to canibalism

Intelligence is an organisation just like any other
Respect all individuals in their folly of the moment
whether it be serious, fearful, timid, ardent, vigorous, determined, enthusiastic

Let us create more confidence

We used to live in a logic of dominance but it just wasn't enough

There is a ghost in Europe

After all everyone dances to his own personal boomboom
