We share the call of our friends from Prague:
Don’t ruin Klinika, don’t ruin our city!
If nothing changes, Klinika will likely get evicted in summer. We can turn the tide – come on 9th of April on demonstration for Klinika!
Klinika still vibrates from such relations, meetings and events that find themselves trampled upon and exiled out of sight in the rest of the city. An abandoned, decaying home, collectively rebuild, open for sharing of our experiences and knowledge, alternative culture and the organization of radical politics, both of which don’t back away before the brownish authoritarian swoosh around us.
The incidents after No Border Camp affected us deeply. The evictions of several self-organized solidarity-projects in Thessaloniki, Athens and Mytilini were a hard blow to the desire for a good life for all. However, our comrades still fighting on. But we as well will not give up! Therefore we want to discuss further about self-managed spaces and possibilities of common organization togehter with you. For this we are looking forward to two events on the topic of “Social Centers”.

03/09 6pm Streetfestival Rudolfstraße: Workshop
On Wednesday the 27th of July three self-organized projects from Refugees and other activists in Thessaloniki were evicted by Cops. The eviction went along with the complete destruction of the Ofranotrofeio, a house jointly occuppied and managed by refugees and other activists. These projects were a token of political solidarity and self-organization. The Orfanotrofeio in specific was contact point for refugees, international activists and many more. The projects and his activists are our friends and comrades. You got our solidarity and support – you are not alone!
Below you see the pictures of the destroyed Orfanotrofeio. Declare your solidarity, take the streets – against the fortress and their fans.

For over six months, we have been working to establish a place where women*, queer, trans, and nonbinary people can meet and organize in a safe environment. Away from the usual male dominated spheres, this project is organized with a radical, antiracist, antipatriarchal, and queer feminist framework to fight for the liberation of women*, with and without papers.
Our project has been highly successful in bringing together many diverse women* living in Athens. We forged a community which is welcoming to migrant women*, who must not only endure the harsh realities that most migrants face, but also must navigate the specific societal oppressions that come with their gender and the intersection of their gender with their race, nationality and religion. Through self-organization, we regularly hold assemblies, events, discussions, film screenings, and moments for casual socializing. Twice we have been forced to relocate our project: one time due to manarchism and the second time by the police, directed by the logics of property and ownership. Despite this, we will continue to resist all efforts that prevent us from taking up the space in society that belongs to us.
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.
On the 5th of January we took part in a discussion meeting at the Orfanotrofio. There, different projects and initiatives for and with refugees introduced themselves. Persons from Lesbos, Athens and of course from Thessaloniki were part of podium, who gave a short input about the local situation and the current status of the structures of solidarity. We skip the information about the Notara in Athens and about Lesbos at this point, because we are going to report on this soon. Instead we want to focus on solidary and self-criticism of the Orfanotrofio (see also article 3). Not just during the podium discussion, but also in individual talks, additionally to general solidarity, the Orfanotrofio was criticized repeatedly. We didn’t hear an absolute rejection of the attempt to get organized with refugees and to support them.
