Right Livelihood Award Schweden

Jakob von Uexkull: Menschen sollten sich mehr in der Politik engagieren und Demokratie verteidigen

Von Andreas Klamm

New York / London / Stockholm./3mnewswire.org/13. November 2008. „Die Menschen sollten sich mehr in der Politik engagieren und die Demokratie verteidigen.“, das sagte der Gründer und Direktor der Right Livelihood Award Foundation in Schweden, Jakob von Uexkull, in einem Interview mit dem Journalisten, Rundfunk-Journalisten und Autor mehrerer Bücher, Andreas Klamm, in einem Radio-Interview bei Radio IBS Liberty.

Am 8. Dezember wird Jakob von Uxekull den Preisträgern des Right Livelihood Award der Auszeichnung für das Jahr 2008 die Preise im Parlament von Schweden in der Stadt Stockholm überreichen. Der Right Livelihood Award ist weltweit bekannt als alternativer Nobelpreis, der jährlich in den Tagen vor der Nobel-Preis-Verleihung an die Empfänger des internationalen Preises verliehen wird. Den Preisträgern ist der Preis oft eine große Hilfe, weil die engagierten Frauen und Männer bisher oft ohne jede finanzielle Unterstützung wichtige Projekte der sozialen Transformation realisiert haben, die für viele Menschen in aller Welt von kaum schätzbarer Bedeutung und Nutzen sind.

In diesem Jahr werden, Monika Hauser, eine Ärztin aus Deutschland, die in vielen Krisenregionen und Kriegs-Gebieten in dieser Welt gearbeitet hat, um den überlebenden Opfern und Frauen von Massenvergewaltigungen und sexueller Gewalt während der Kriege zu helfen und sie zu rehabilitieren. Monika Hauser gibt den Opfer von Gewalt, Schutz und Unterstützung und engagiert sich auch dafür, dass die Vergewaltigung von Frauen während der Kriege als Kriegs-Verbrechen verfolgt und bestraft wird. In diesem Bereich setzte sich die Ärztin auch in großen Gefahren unter anderem während des Krieges in Bosnien und in Asien ein.

Asha Hagi ist eine Parlamentarierin in Somalia. Somalia ist bekanntlich ein Land, das im Chaos versinkt. Das hat die Frau nicht davon abgehalten einen Clan für Frauen zu gründen. Bisher gab es in dem Land, das immer wieder durch Kriege zwischen den Stämmen und Clanen erschüttert wird, fünf Clan-Organisationen, die ausschließlich von Männern repräsentiert waren. Asha Hagai gründete den sechsten Clan. Den Clan der Frauen. Sie engagiert sich zudem für Frieden und für ein Ende der immer wieder neu aufflammenden Kämpfe in Somalia. Sie mischte sich gewissermaßen damit gleichberechtigt in die Verhandlungen ein. Den Right Livelihood Award erhält sie für diese Arbeit und Mut den die Frau einbrachte.

Ein Ehepaar aus Indien wird ebenso ausgezeichnet mit dem Right Livelihood Award. Nach Schweden kann jedoch „nur“ die Ehefrau Krishnammal Jagannathan reisen, da ihr Ehegatte schon weit über 90 Jahre alt ist. Das Ehepaar und Krishnammal Jogannathan arbeitete schon mit Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi zusammen. Ihr Hauptziel ist dafür zu sorgen, dass die Menschen ohne Land, Zugang zu Land erhalten. Das Interesse an der Arbeit Ghandis wächst durch das Engagement des Ehepaars sehr. Dies vor allem auch aufgrund der wachsenden Probleme durch den Klimawandel.

Als erste Journalistin in der Welt wird eine der besten Journalistinnen in dieser Welt zum ersten Mal mit dem Right Livelihood Award ausgezeichnet und gefördert. Amy Goodman, die Gründerin eines kleinen alternativen Medien-Imperiums in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika und eines politischen Informations-Programmes, das auch der Ausbildung dient, Democracy NOW! (www.democracynow.org) wurde im September 2008 während einer politischen Bericht-Erstattung verhaftet. Am 8. Dezember 2008 wird sie die erste Journalistin in der Welt sein, die den angesehenen Right Livelihood Award, den alternativen Nobel-Preis, erhalten wird.

Das Projekt Democracy NOW! gründete die Journalistin, die an der angesehenen Harvard University in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika studierte und seit Jahr 1984 Radio-Sendungen produziert. Democracy NOW! kann als Radio- und Fernseh-Sendungen inzwischen weltweit in der englischen Sprache bei mehr als 700 regionalen Fernseh-Stationen und rund 250 Radio-Stationen, von Montag bis Freitag, gehört werden. Amy Goodman ist gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder David Goodman auch die Autorin von politisch kritischen Büchern wie „Standing up to the madness“, Drilling and Killing: Chevron and Nigeria’s Oil Dictatorship’ (1998), Massacre: the Story of East Timor’. Diese Geschichte kostete fast das Leben der Autorin. In Ost -Timor überlebte die Journalistin mit einem weiteren Journalisten das Massaker im Jahr 1991, in dem Soldaten aus Indonesien 270 Menschen in Ost-Timor ermordeten.

Die Autorin und Journalistin schrieb drei weitere Bücher gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder mit harten Fakten: The Exception to the Rulers (2004); Static: Government Liars, Media Cheer-leaders and the People who Fight Back (2006); and Standing up to the Madness (2008). Sie schreibt zudem regelmäßig Kolumnen für Zeitungen in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika.

„Wir brauchen alternative Stimmen. Es gibt diese Stimmen. Aber diese Stimmen werden oft nicht gehört in den Medien. Das ist durch die Gleichschaltung der Medien besonders auch in den USA der Fall. Das macht es unmöglich irgendwelche komplexen Zusammenhänge vernünftig zu erklären im Radio oder Fernsehen. Amy Goodman sorgt mit ihrem Programm für eine informierte Debatte und gibt den alternativen Stimmen ein Gehör.“, erklärte Jakob von Uexkull.

Die Jury hat die Verhaftung der Journalistin mit großer Sorge beobachtet. Das war sicher einer der Gründe für die Nominierung auch wegen der amerikanischen Wahlen. Die Verhaftung zeigte der Jury noch stärker, wie wichtig es ist eine derart engagierte Frau und Journalistin zu unterstützen und zu schützen.

Besonders auf dem Gebiet der Wirtschaft sieht Jakob von Uexkull das Problem des gefährlichen Demokratie-Defizits. Lügen in der Politik, wie etwa in der Bankenkrise, in der seit Jahren Menschen immer wieder erzählt wurde, es sei kein Geld da, als plötzlich dann Milliarden von Euro und U.S Dollar „auftauchen“ um die Banken zu retten, sollten nicht zu einer Politik-Skepsis führen, sondern vielmehr dazu , dass sich mehr engagierte Menschen politisch, regional oder national einsetzen. Demokratie müsse immer wieder neu erkämpft werden. Der Stiftungs-Gründer betonte: „Man muss bereit sein sich im politischen Leben auch zu engagieren. Nicht etwa als Berufspolitiker und auch nicht für das ganze Leben, doch durchaus lokal, regional und national, vielmehr als bisher. Ein Beitritt zu Organisationen und Vereinen genügt nicht. Man muss sich auch politisch und gesellschaftlich persönlich engagieren, wenn man dafür sorgen will, dass der Krieg gegen die Demokratie nicht etwa von den Feinden der Demokratie gewonnen wird.“

Der Gründer der Right Livelihood Award Foundation, Jakob von Uexkull, stiftete zu Beginn der erstmaligen Verleihungen der Preise vor rund 19 Jahren für fünf Jahre die Preisgelder aus eigenen finanziellen Mitteln. Inzwischen wird der Preis auch durch zahlreiche Spenden aus aller Welt auch von vielen Spendern aus Deutschland gefördert und unterstützt.

Eine weitere und ausführliche Bericht-Erstattung folgt.

Die Radio-Sendung wurde im Rahmen in der Arbeit der internationalen Medien-Arbeitsgemeinschaft Independent Broadcasting Service (IBS) Liberty bei Radio IBS Liberty produziert und gesendet. Die Sendung kann unter anderem auch bei Radio Open-NL in den Niederlanden und in aller Welt gehört werden:

In 2003 he was elected as a board  member of the General assembly for students with the Protestant University of Applied Science in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Germany as known as the Allgemeiner Studierender Ausschuss (AStA).

In the early 90´s he used to be a board member of several other associations and media assocations.

In 1988 he covered a story about a refugee from former Yugoslavia which has been on probation for asylum in Germany, a father of several children and the German authorities wanted to send back the man to Yugoslavia althought it was crystal clear that this will be a serious danger for the father of children. Andreas Klamm has produced an interview with press spokesmen and press spokeswomen and with the father which was in danger. The television program has been aired on regional public television. He got in trouble for speaking out a part of the truth and taking a stand in the public for refugees.

Diagnosed with cancer – but diagnosis is not certain

In 2003 the journalist and author was diagnosed thorugh his former physician with the possibility that he may suffers from cancer of a quite unusual kind. The diagnosis has not got proven but also no excluded. The search for a possible cancer is not possible because access to medical treatment and even access to dentists for the journalist is since 18 months not possible.

== Danger for life, isolation, torture and abuse of human rights ==

He declared in several public speeches and on radio and television that he wants not to die in Germany and neither wants to be buried in Germany. He has declared that he wants to travel to the United States of America, may live and work in the U.S.A. for some while and may be buried in the United States of America.

Because access to medical treatment of any kind is not possible to the author and journalist with is officially physically disabled a lot of negative impact for the health situation of the journalist and author have taken place.

He is living and working under LOW- and even NO-budget conditions. The journalist and nurse (R.N., RGN) has stated in the public if he will not soon be allowed to leave Germany the danger that he might die, because there is no chance for medical treatment in Germany is great. He has also declared that he wants to see his medical doctor in London, United Kingdom.  Since 2006 his place where he prefers to live is the city of London, as a 2nd choice as long he has to wait to get access to the United States of America. He prefers to live, work “…and to die as late as possible…” in the United States of America.

An international observer from a human rights organization in Canada has told the journalist, that he might be a victim of torture.  She offered some kind of help to leave Germany as soon as possible but because of special circumstance related to friends of the family of his mother the journalist was not ready to leave in spring 2008.

Answering the question how is going to survive without the possibilty of medical treatment of any kind or even without access to a dentist in Germany the author and journalist has answered: “…every day I have to pray before the Holy G-D of Israel and the Messiah…, some people, friends and even people which could be called enemies have been so kind to provide so pharmaceutical supplies or medication which I do need after three serious accidents which have happened in 1994, 1995 and 1996. In such very difficult times it is a real challenge to trust upon the Holy G-D of Israel and the Messiah that HE will take care of the certain needs. If I would not have the faith and believe that the Holy G-D of Israel and the Messiah do exsist I would be already dead.  This is not about religion, this is a statement in concern of faith and believe. For some reason I do believe that religion can not save a man or a woman. Through grace I do know that faith and believe can save a woman or a man.

As I do have no money for an attorney this is all I can do in concern of the issue medical treatment and access to a dentist. After all what happened I want to see only my medical doctor in London in the United Kingdom or a Jewish medical doctor in New York City in the United States of America.  It is a though situation to be isolated from friends in New York City or in the U.S.A.

Recently I have produced an interview with a victim which is held in an isolation camp in Germany. Perhaps you are able to understand that I do know very well about the issues this man was talking about. Torture is a serious thing and I am against torture, many people do know this. Every day I have to ask the Holy G-D of Israel and the Messiah to help me to go through this very dangerous situation. It is sad that so many people do know very well how to kill other people but do not know or perhaps might be not willing to save the life of people which are in serious danger.”.

Several people have signed  a petition and requested political asylum for the author and journalist Andreas Klamm in the United States of America or as an alternative in the United Kingdom.
