Joint train journey to the demonstrations in Berlin
Meeting 8:30 train station Neustädter Bahnhof
Today we call for this year’s November 2 to be a day of global resistance against the Turkish war of aggression, to break the normal state of affairs and cripple life. Participate with creative and diverse actions of civil disobedience and come with us on the street!
The revolution in Northeast Syria will prevail, fascism will be smashed!
At 4pm on October 9th, the Turkish occupation army and its Islamist allies began their long-prepared war of aggression against the liberated areas of northern Syria.
At four o’clock sharp in the afternoon, bombs rained down on people in towns and villages on the border. Jihadist militias began their advance under the leadership of the Turkish army and tried to penetrate into the border area. Turkey is talking about a “military operation” aimed at “securing the border” and establishing a so-called “peace corridor”, but the fact is that the Turkish army and the Islamist mercenaries under its command are concerned with nothing less than the occupation of the mostly Kurdish populated entire area along the Turkish-Syrian border. The regime in Ankara speaks of the “fight against terrorism” and emphasizes that their war of aggression is not about the war on the civilian population, but indiscriminate bombing of civilian settlements, looting and mass deportations of hundreds of thousands of people, arbitrary executions and the brutal abduction of hundreds of civilians speak a different language. The further the war against northern Syria progresses, the more it becomes clear, what Erdogan is really about, namely ethnic cleansing through the violent expulsion of millions of people and the long-term demographic change of the entire region.

On 1st of December more than 40 people met in Dresden for the local founding meeting for a feminist strike movement in Dresden on March 8, 2019 and beyond. Many ideas for content, demands, forms of action and structures of this movement have arisen, to which we would like to tie up at the next meeting.
We therefore invite all feminist and interested individuals and groups to the next meeting.
When? 12.12.18 at 18:00-20:00
Where? Evangelische Hochschule (EHS), Dürerstraße 25, Dresden, Room 215
Anyone who was unable to attend the last meeting is welcome to come at 17:30 to be updated. For small snacks for donation is taken care of.
We are in the process of putting together the program for the meeting. Here is a small overview:
- Final discussion on options for the organizational form
- Formation of possible working groups
- exchange about ideas
In order to facilitate the formation of working groups, we would like to schedule a period in which people who already have a (more or less) concrete idea can present it briefly (5 minutes). That could look like this:
I am / we are and that’s what I/we need! (Persons, material, etc.)
Please let us know until Sunday evening, if you would like to present an idea, so that we can plan something better. We also look forward to further topics for the meeting or ideas for the working groups.
With feminist greetings and the request for forwarding to those who are interested!

We share the call for a demonstration by the Saxonian Refugee Council
** Sea Bridge– SOLIDARITY WITH MISSION LIFELINE **
* Sunday, July 29th // 2pm // Alaunplatz Dresden-Neustadt *
Join the demonstration for a safe Mediterranean by sea rescue! For a humane policy and against the dream of the fortress Europe. The dream of all those right wingers, who want to seal off Europe completely. We want to walk through Dresden on Sunday, July 29th, demonstrating our conviction with all distinctness, accompanied by fine beats.
Why this demonstration?
In the last four years, more than 16,000 people drowned in the Mediterranean by trying to reach Europe’s shores according to UN’s numbers. But instead of expanding sea rescue and supporting private NGOs, EU and national governments go for blockade and criminalization. Now, the rhetoric is followed by action: rescue ships are not allowed to leave the ports anymore. By applying juridical tricks and open racism, rescue ships are restricted to the ports, the supporters are doomed to watch helplessly. Parallely, dreadful news reach us almost every day, reporting of ever new ship accidents with many people dead in the Mediterranean.
We cannot keep watching at these inhumane events for just one more day!

The conference is organized by a group of around thirty people including activists from afrique-europe-interact, corasol, glokal e.V., Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie and others. As a group, we decide by consensus, using methods of grass roots democracy.
| 6.-8. October 2017 | Leipzig
| A conference with up to 300 people coming from different activist contexts – freedom of movement, anti-racisms, agriculture, degrowth, climate justice
| With talks, workshops, theatre, concerts, networking possibilities and several formats for exchange
What is the connection between the debate around a just design of migration and the one around an ecologically and socially just economy?
What are the connections between alternative concepts such as „Degrowth“ or „Post-Development“ and a postcolonial perspective on causes of flight?
This conference wants to focus on the links between flight, migration, self-determined development and ecological crises. We want to connect these seemingly independent topics within a broader context in order to build bridges between the different political struggles and movements.

The incidents after No Border Camp affected us deeply. The evictions of several self-organized solidarity-projects in Thessaloniki, Athens and Mytilini were a hard blow to the desire for a good life for all. However, our comrades still fighting on. But we as well will not give up! Therefore we want to discuss further about self-managed spaces and possibilities of common organization togehter with you. For this we are looking forward to two events on the topic of “Social Centers”.

Call for the Camp by Beyond Europe
In May, two comrades from the antiauthoritarian platform Alpha Kappa (Αντιεξουσιαστική κίνηση, Antieksousiastiki Kinisi, antiauthoritarian movement) are on a tour to inform about the camp and call for action. Alpha Kappa is part of the Beyond Europe network and of the local camp assembly in Thessaloniki. We want to inform you about the ideas of the Camp and the Beyond Europe Barrio and discuss it with you. Furthermore we will show a short film about the Beyond Europe Camp and the actions that took place in 2015.
The famous narrative of Europe sounded like a fairy tale and a happily-ever-after: peace after two World Wars, “understanding between peoples” and “prosperity for everyone”. In 2016 this myth has once again proven to be a farce. The divide between the rich and the poor continues to grow in this systematic crisis ofcapitalism. To speak of “democracy” is nothing but cynical and European integration is nothing more than a bad joke. Across almost all regions reactionary forces are gaining strength, borders and walls are once again being built up and become increasingly militarized.
Especially at the external borders more and more people from all over the world are hindered from continuing their flight. We all have seen it. The “Balcan route” is blocked. Borders are closed. The suffering in the refugee’s home countries also stems from the aggressive politics of European states and produce apocalyptic images from “inside” and “outside”. The situation in Eidomeni and on the Greek islands is alarming. This catastrophe is man-made and comes as no surprise. While we live in prosperity, tens of thousands of people are forced to wait in the rain and mud. This treatment of refugees is without any doubt inhumane, other words would not do this situation justice. Last summer Greece was made to choose between bankruptcy and continuing with the austerity measures imposed by the EU which caused poverty and desperation for hundreds of thousands. Now, Greece has become Europe’s bouncer, cooperating with the autocratic Turkish regime.
But there are also many people, who actively fight against this policyof marginalization and exclusion in this capitalist Europe. From the 15th to the 24th of July a No Border Camp will take place in Greece. On the campus of the University of Thessaloniki we want to create a space to discuss, exchange ideas, network and carry out actions.
Dresden Internationalist Center’s Events
There is again lots of talk about Greece: As an EU external border Greece confronts fleeing people in a direct way with the “fortress Europe”. The country is a neoliberal experimental laboratory for European and German saving doctrine that deprives many people’s social and financial security. When we want to develop shared strategies against bulkheading and authoritarian austerity policy, we have to try to understand the surroundings of political work in Greece.

We already announced in our report of the delegationtrip to greece, that we would like to discuss the ideas of “social centers for all” in Dresden. We are glad to invite you to our open forum and would be happy, if many interested people joined the discussion.
