Hi everyone,
we have emergency situation again concerning the woman, who was “silently” evicted from Ohlauer school two and a half month ago. From tomorow we don’t have any further solution for her. We are asking you again to show your strong solidarity and offer her a soli accommodation if possible. Thanks.

Newsletter May/ June
we want to give you a small overview on the current situation concerning the activities of the soli accommodation group at Oplatz. In the last two months we had 19 supporters who have offered soli accommodation for refugees, 8 of them are available at the moment on our request. Most of them are able to offer temporary accommodation either for one night, few days or, pretty rarely, for one week. Others already host people on a longer basis, or have announced to be available only in some weeks.

Daily we have at least three refugees who are searching for a place to stay, recently we had even 10 requests in one day. We are not able to meet all requirements because of the current small number of offers. For one or two refugees daily we mediate places in emergency shelters, though very reluctantly.

Thanks to our network with the solizimmer group and valuable information they provided, we have managed to mediate one long term offer recently and possibly some more in the future.

At the moment only five of us are covering the daily shifts (Monday-Friday from 6 – 8 pm), we are under the heavy load trying to organise our small group in the best way. We need definitely additional strength and recources. Please join us, if you can imagine to contribute anyhow to our work. We have a regular open meeting each wednesday from 8 pm at Oranienplatz. Thus, we would be very glad, if we can split the various tasks concerning the soli accommodation activities: public relations work, coordination, networking, mediation, crowding campaigns, projects development, etc.

You can reach us easily on our info number: 0176 – 37 32 54 99 or via e-mail:

Solidarity greetings
