demonstration | 04.03. | 4pm | Jorge-Gomondai-Platz
War has been raging in Ukraine since last Thursday. There is new information every hour, almost every minute, but the situation remains unclear. Many people are currently trying to escape the war. Many people in Ukraine, who have actively resisted Russia’s increasing influence in recent years and who would face persecution in the event of annexation, are also fleeing. Self-organized aid structures are emerging, donation campaigns, volunteers are driving to borders to help people flee Ukraine. Continue reading “Demonstration in solidarity with the people in Ukraine and on the run”
contribution from Basisgruppe Internationalismus | part of Internationalist Center Dresden
Prisons are not a solution to social problems. Prisons are a means of enforcing domination and exploitation. They ensure that whoever is down stays down. We reject them and do not call for their social reform.
We will demonstrate on 13.11.2021 in Dresden for the abolition of all prisons! Meeting points: 3 pm at the deportation prison Hamburgerstraße, 5 pm at the Dresden Hammerweg Prison. Continue reading “13.11. Anti-prison demonstration – For a society without prisons”

Call to demonstration on the day of the revolution in Rojava: United in the struggle for liberation – defend the revolution and disarm the FRD!
At the anniversary of the social revolution in the Democratic Federation of North-East Syria/Rojava, we call everyone to take to the streets together! On 18.07.2021 we will demonstrate united in the struggle for liberation, in defense of the democratic, feminist and ecological revolution in the Middle East and worldwide! We protest against the war of the fascist Turkish government, of Erdoğan and its support by the government of the Federal Republic of Germany. This threatens not only Rojava. The south of Kurdistan is also being attacked by Erdoğan and his German supporters. These attacks are not only directed against our Kurdish friends, but against the idea of a better world and thus ultimately against all of us. Let us therefore show our global solidarity with all liberation movements and struggles for the good life for all! Continue reading “Call 18.07.2021 – Day of the Revolution! Demo in Dresden”
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”

The Internationalist Center is located in the building complex of the housing and cultural cooperative Zentralwerk. We actually wanted to hold the festival on this site. Due to the uncertain Corona situation, we had to make the decision to hold the festival online. Therefore we invite you to experience the Festival°2 with us in the online world of the Zentralwerk. For this we will use WorkAdventure together with you.
In addition to the various educational offerings, our festival should be a place to meet new people, to network, to simply get into conversation. But how is that supposed to work when everyone is at home behind their laptops, computers and smartphones and you can’t spontaneously meet at the bar or strike up a conversation in the exhibition?
For lectures, panels or workshops, we have all used many media in recent months, but getting to know each other usually came up short. That’s why we are organizing the Internationalism Festival°2 with WorkAdventure. Continue reading “Update: Online Festival! – But how?”
SAVE THE DATE! June 02-06, 2021
This year the Internationalism Festival N°2 will take place! From June 02 – 06, 2021 we will organize the second Internationalism Festival on the grounds of the Zentralwerk (Riesaer Str. 32, Dresden Pieschen). We want to celebrate internationalism and the struggling people of this world and bring the global revolts to our doorstep. Continue reading “SAVE THE DATE! Internationalism Festival N°2 – Feminist Struggles – Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow!”
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!”
