Finally the time has come! Here you can find most of the program of the second Internationalism Festival! It will be updated and completed in the next weeks! To give you an idea of what you can look forward to, here are already the fixed events!
Some things we want to say in advance:
First, we are very sorry that we have to hold the festival online. You can find the exact details here. Due to the uncertain Corona situation we had to make this decision during the planning process. Even though it might be possible to meet again with restrictions at the beginning of June and the weather is tempting us outside, we hope for your numerous participation! Get together, watch the events together (if this should be possible again), take the computer out into the countryside…there are many ways to make online formats more enjoyable for you!
Because of the online format, many networking and sharing opportunities are eliminated. We have decided to include many lectures and workshops in the program and to move pure networking and sharing formats to the summer. We hope for your participation and ideas on how we can make this happen together!
We have a very colorful program, yet many perspectives are missing. So we are looking forward to your ideas and future plans, understand the festival as an invitation and call to think further and to network. Continue reading “Program Internationalism Festival°2”
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 “

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!

Hiermit teilen wir den Aufruf der Gruppe Initiativa Ne Rasismu
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.

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.

Prior to the conference „Do it yourself – Concepts of grassroots organization, community organizing and autonomy“, the Internationalist Centre Dresden analyzises the new „job opportunities for asylum“ (80 cents jobs for refugees) and comes to the conclusion, that there is a necessity of a mutual organization of refugees and unemployed, to escape the exclusion of society resulted by the work fetishism.
„A twenty-first-century left must seek to combat the centrality of work to contemporary life. In the end, our choice is between glorifying work and the working class or abolishing them both. […] Yet the latter is the only true postcapitalist position.“
(Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams, extracts from Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work)

On the 6th of February plenty of right-wing populists, neofascist movements and parties will come together in different places around Europe to take to the streets for their reactionary idea of superior “people” and “nations”. On the one hand we don’t want to accept this and therefore we call you to counter them firmly together taking a stand for political solidarity! On the other hand we want to proclaim this day Europe-wide as a day of action against Fortress Europe!
