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)

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.

Everyone is mostly welcome to join!
Today (07/28) at 4.30pm we occupied the office of the party DIE LINKE (the so called Wir-AG) in Dresden Neustadt. Thus, we want to declare our solidarity to our comrades and friends in Thessaloniki, Greece. Yesterday at 27th of July 5 am the greek police evicted violently several solidarity projects by and for refugees. The police is directly subordinated to ministry of internal affairs, governd by current ruling SYRIZA-Party. In turn, SYRIZA and DIE LINKE are related to eachother.

Dear friends, dear comrades,
as you have probably already heard, the “Solidarity4All” Camp will take place in Bamberg from August 4 to August 7. Tere are just a few weeks left and that is why we want to invite everybody who is interested to join us on Monday, August 1 at 7 PM at AZ Conni. At this meeting together we can discuss the journey to Greece, the program and different open tasks.
We’re looking forward to see ya!
Since 07/11 the Internationalist Center Dresden is on the way to the No-Border-Camp (NBC) in Thessaloniki. Starting from Frankfurt/Main we’ll go via Milan and Ancona to Greece where on 07/15 the NBC will start. Through the Group “AusserKontrolle” (Out of controll) we were part of the prepetation assembly. At the place we’ll get activly involved in the creation and set up off the camp via the antikapitalist and antiauthoritorian plattform “Beyond Europe”.
At the NBC, hundreds of people come together to share the experiences that have been made over the last months in particular since the “Summer of Migration”. All over Euope and beyond there are Networks of Solidarity thatl strengthen themselves and fight together against boarder fences, isolation and nationalism. Together they are a transnational movement looking for joint strategies to open up free spaces in order to crack and abolish the European boarder regime. In opposition to a selective Europe and the developments of the last summer, the No Border Camp stands for a further moment of solidarity and the struggle for the freedom of movement. At the camp, common spaces, sharing knowledge and direct actions will be set up to strengthen the movement further.
We share the ideas of the No Border Camp and consider it as a chance to continue working on issues we’ve been dealing with since our “delegation tour” to Greece past winter. Once again, we will get engaged in the current situation of refugees, particularly in Thessaloniki, and report it back to you. Since our tour, we have been intensively dealing with the appropriation and shaping of autonomous spaces. In the city itself, Orfanotrofio, a house squatted by both refugees and other activists as well as the social center Micropolis are examples for diverse solidary networks and self-managed spaces. Furthermore, we want to deepen the networks we’ve been build up so far and looking to set up new ones. Again its suppose to be focussed on the self-organised projects by refugees and activists of the antiauthoritarian space. Following our journey in January, we organised Soli-Parties, wrote articles for the antiracist zine ZAG and antifacist zine AIB (will be published in the next edition), did lectures, shared messages of solidarity and were part of the European-wide Actionday for “Solidarity without Limits” on February 2nd 2016.
With the intension to connect glocal – global and local – fights of emancipatory manner, we are currently working on the idea of “social centers for all”. So far, we’ve been researching practices and possibilies of social centers nationwide to bring up the idea of building a center such in the city of Dresden. In Thessaloniki, we want to take the chance to deepen our engagements with such projects, update our knowledge and looking for common strategies. Therefore, we will discuss these topics with comrades from Italy, Greece and Germany. We will keep you updated on that issue and report – at the latest – in a workshop we will hold at the Rudolfstraßenfest (3/09/16, Rudolfstraße, 01097 Dresden) to discuss our newly gained knowledge with you. Lookoing on the named practices, we are still working on a paper for an antiauthoritarian internationalism that hopefully will be published in September 2016.
Convoy of Solidarity from Frankfurt/Main [Germany] via Italy to
Fortress Europe starts here. We already want to politicise the journey to the No Border-Camp in Thessaloniki and therefore we will organise a convoy from Frankfurt am Main, Germany via Milano and Ancona, Italy to Thessaloniki. Together with Italian groups and collectives we are planning different antiracist actions and stops in Italy. We then take the ferry from Ancona to Igoumenitsa, Greece.

In Mytilini, the capital of the island Lesbos, we meet Fatima and Assad. Both of them have stayed for some days in the NoBorder Camp. They share their experiences of the flight, the situation in their home countries and the expectations towards an Europe, which refuses the entry for both of them.
