1st May | 2 pm | Artesischer Brunnen Albertplatz
We gladly share the call of the AND (Anarchist Network Dresden) for May 1st and see you on the street!
May 1st is historically an important day of the workers‘ movement. 150 years ago people gave their lives to fight for an 8-hour day. Today many people can’t do much with this day. They work isolated and „flexible“ in precarious jobs, they exploit themselves or are exploited.
The past year has shown us once again that capitalism is an unjust system. The Corona pandemic has further exacerbated this injustice. The crisis makes many people poor. Especially people who have worked in precarious jobs before. People who have become unemployed and can no longer finance their living. People who have no official employment contracts and are exposed to arbitrariness. Continue reading “Anarchist May Day in Dresden “
Rally Day against Police Voilence | March 15 | 4 pm | Jorge Gomondai Square
We share the call of our anarchist friends an invite to the rally. The Initiative for Peace in Kurdistan will be there with speeches on the criminalization of Kurdish people in Dresden, Germany and Turkey.
We call on you, come to the rally on Monday, March 15, 2021 at 4 pm at George Gomondai Square!
The year 2020 was marked by the death of George Floyd and the discussion about police violence. However, this sad event was neither an isolated incident nor a new development. Police violence has existed as long as police have existed. Police stops and violence do not happen by chance. Mostly people who are affected are poor, people of color, black people, homeless people, young people, people who do not fit into gender norms, people with mental problems, political activists.
Police violence is structural – What does that mean? Continue reading “Ralley on March 15 – International Day against Police Violence!”
Tuesday, 02.02.2021, the Turkish defense minister Hulusi Akar meets with the German defense minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer in Berlin. Turkey seeks international partnerships to get backing for its, as propagated in Turkey, next military offensive on Derik and the Shengal. Still long not healed, are the wounds the German Leopard 2 tanks in north-east Syria, the population living there inflicted. Also in 2021 Germany supports an obviously fascist state in word and deed.
We demand Germany to stop the dirty politics with Turkey. Whether inhuman “refugee deals”, the silencing in an obvious international law war of aggression in northeast Syria 2018/2019 or the actively disgusting support through weapons deliveries, which have claimed countless human victims in their missions in the Turkish wars in Nagorno-Karabakh??? and northeast Syria.
What can we do? Continue reading “Call for solidarity – Germany finances, Erdogan bombs! – NOT WITH US!”

100 reasons to prosecute the dictator
From the recent history of humanity, we know that nothing has lead to more catastrophe in human history than dictatorial regimes. As we know from the Armenian Genocide, from Holocaust, from the settler colonial genocides against indigenous peoples in the Americas, as well as from the many massacres in places like Middle East, including Kurdistan, humanity has had to cope with all sorts of genocides, especially in the past two centuries. Continue reading “100 reasons to prosecute the dictator”
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.

To all democratic forces: Defend the Democratic Federation of North-Eastern Syria! Statement and call to action by the Internationalist Commune of Rojava.
To all democratic forces: Defend the Democratic Federation of North-Eastern Syria!
Less than a year after the start of the criminal war of aggression against the canton Afrin, the people of North-Eastern Syria are again confronted with an aggression by the fascist state of Turkey and its Islamist allies. The threats of the Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan are no empty words, are not just election campaign propaganda and no mere provocations. With the assaults on the refugee camp Maxmur and several villages in Schengal on the 13th of December he has made this clear again. In fact they are the latest expression of the neo-ottoman expansionist aspirations of the AKP-MHP regime, and the open announcement of a murderous war of extermination against the revolution in North-Eastern Syria and in the entire Middle East.

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!

Our friends from the Internationalist Commune of Rojava asked us to support and publish their campaign “Make Rojava Green Again”. Hereby we do so and hope for positive feedback and huge support. At the very end of the text you find brochures in several languages.
Five years have passed since the beginning of the Rojava Revolution. Beginning with the heroic resistance of Kobani, the YPG/YPJ have pushed the reactionary gangs of ISIS back again and again. At the same time, the people of Rojava have successfully resisted all hegemonical attempts to corrupt the revolution. Inspired and shaped by the ideas of Abdullah Öcalan and the struggle of the Kurdish freedom movement, Rojava is a revolutionary project with the aim of challenging capitalist modernity through women’s liberation, ecology, and radical democracy. Despite the ongoing success of the Rojava Revolution, the people remain under pressure; the war against ISIS, the daily terror attacks by the Turkish state and the economic embargo, are obstacles for building up a new society. In this situation, Rojava needs worldwide support more than ever.

Against the politics of fear: Stand up against summit of far right
Prague will witness a gathering of the representatives of the Europe of nations and freedom (ENF) fraction, which regroups the right-wing populist parties in the European parliament on 15th and 16th of December. This grouping is constituted, among others, by the french National front (FN), the dutch Freedom party (PVV), the Free party of Austria (FPÖ) or the Italian Northern league (LN). The event is organized by the Czech Sovereignty and direct democracy (SPD) party of Tomio Okamura. Of the most notorious leaders, participation has thus far been confirmed by Marine Le Pen (FN) and Geert Wilders (PVV). It is as of yet unclear whether the leader of the Austrian FPÖ H. C. Strache, currently engaged in government-forming negotiations with the Popular party (Austrian christian democrats), will also be present.
