1.  introduction of the network for our new freedom fighters

our goal is to have a decenteralized lager-mobilisation in berlin and hopefully one day in brandenburg. we already visited some lagers, did some research about the shit living conditions inside and how they are built to make money off of illegalized and isolated human beings we label as “refugees”. right now there are over 23.000 people (official number by lageso) just in berlin in lagers.

the lager-mobilisation-network is an OPEN network with decenteralized working groups against the slavery which taking place inside the lagers – so join like u want and your personal scheduele allows u to participate; plus we do NOT do anything “illegal”. we are people from all over the world and speak english during our meetings, but german translation is always possible, for other languages hit us up please – or if possible bring your friends with u.

after some re/thinking rounds, practical action and personal connection we developed two guidlines for the coming steps, but these ideas are dynamic and realated to our possibilites and the exprience we gain, a short summary:

I. short and mid-term:

a. we will go and talk with groups who know and can teach about the legal problems and educate ourselves in this direction and then visit again the lagers in small groups and spread this hardly needed information as the people asked us when we were visiting them; in addition to this we take info flyers etc. with us about the legal situations. we also invite (not force…)  the so-called refugees living in those lagers we visit to be part of our group.

b. we want also be part of the “neighbourhood/welcoming-initiatives” and bring some alternative ideas and information from the self-organized struggle additional to their great charity work.

–> therefore we need some MORE people who speak different languages like: arabic, albanian, dari/farsi, serbo-croatian, tigrinya, urdu etc. – every languages is needed.

–> decentral working activists: people who are interessted to take care of the lagers in their around their living places like the districts they are living in and contact the people inside of lagers and participate in “neighbourhood/welcoming-initiatives” there – we (will) start very slow but very focused idea on this.

II. long-term:

we are searching for rooms all over berlin OUTSIDE but next to the lagers to build up small communities so people can organize themselves for the time they are forced to live inside of lagers. plus we will accompany them and try to bring alternative content like workshop etc. to those places – if its needed!

–> if u have a room or contact for such rooms (house projects, meeting-rooms), please let us know

–> if u know people for such content/workshops, please connect them to us

3. demo: we are here and we will fight for our right to stay

– we went to schoolstrike/schulstreik for the first time and ask them for help and collabration
– schoolstrike demo 19th november, 11am at potsdamerplatz
– we want to organize our own demo with people from the lagers
– the schoolstrike wants to help to stop againt the (mass) deportations
– we need flyers for the the so-called refugees inside the lagers
– people from the lagers write short sentences and make a cohesive text off of it
– do we have facebook connections to the people inside?
– how accompany people from the lagers to the demo?
– spread demo flyers at lageso because there are many people from lagers too
– prepare flyers BEFORE schoolstrike
– prepare speech (youth)
– choose a central place to start the demo so its easy to find
– registration + technique: who is responsible?

to do:
– writing the demands and flyers
– 2 flyers: how to demonstrate and “what right do i have”–> ask experts
– translation: urdu, farsi, serbo-croat, french, arabic, english
