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.

The empty promise of “integration” Work and employment opportunities for asylum (Arbeitsgelegenheiten Asyl (AGH-Asyl))

Guy Louis Debord “Abolition du Travail Aliéné” / “Abolition of alienated labor” from 1963. A picture and a political campaign at the same time. Both where directed against wage labor so against the abstraction of a meaningful act or action into exploitable work – therefore abstract work.

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)

Recent protests and repressions in Belarus

An event by ABC Dresden

February and March have marked one of the most active protest period in the recent history of Belarus. Thousands of people were protesting not only against the infamous unemployment tax but against dictatorship of Lukashenko. People in the cities all around Belarus have organized their local gatherings and planning further steps in their struggle. Anarchists played an important role in those protests in several places. Reaction from the state followed – hundreds of people arrested and sentenced to short term arrests of 10-15 days, several are now prosecuted for planning riots.

Stop deportations. To Afghanistan or elsewehre!

antiabschiebedemo_17-12

In recent years, a great number of people from insecure countries have sought asylum in Germany. However, the German government decided, in dubious cooperation with these countries, to send many of asylum seekers back. It won’t matter whether you have fled Afghanistan, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Iraq or any other oppressing government. The German government has always tried to show that most of those countries are safe and secure places. In these countries, thousands of people are killed and lots of incidents of human rights violation take place on a daily basis. We left our insecure countries just to find a safer place on Earth to live. Your humanitarian support could be a guarantee for us to have a peaceful life, therefore we ask you to take to the streets, together with us. Against a deportation policy of violence. For a joint living in safety and freedom.
