Appeal for refugee community network from Konradsreuth, Bayern

german & french & russian translation below

To all Refugees in Konradsreuth and Hof Districts

For about 2 years now in Frauenhof, we refugees from Ukrain and Cheychenia have been living together as family community in Konradsreuth with the status of asylum applicant refugees. We support one another through social cultural exchange in our daily relationship.

Since then, many more refugees have been transferred here to live in the village of Konradsreuth and in other districts of Hof, therefore we think it is time to widen our network and community.

It is our belief in human dignity that motivates us to propose an active and independent platform of refugee community to advance our unity for fundamental human rights, for freedom and for the well-being of refugees. Continue reading

Einladung zum Netzwerktreffen für Externe Supporter_innen
Die Ereignisse überschlagen sich. Durch den Gerichtsurteil vom 12.11.2014 haben wir jedoch Zeit gewonnen, unseren flüchtlingspolitischen Protest und die Umsetzung unseres selbstverwalteten Internationalen Flüchtlingszentrums nach Vorne zu bringen. Aus diesem Grund laden wir, die Bewohner_innen der Schule an der Ohlauerstr., alle interessierten Initiativen, Organisationen und Vereine zu unserem Netzwerktreffen am Dienstag, den 18.11.2014 um 20 Uhr in der Emmaus Kirche am Lausitzer Platz ein. Ziel dieses Treffens ist es, den Support besser zu organisieren und zu koordinieren und eine arbeitsteilige Handlungsstrategie zu finden. Wir möchten daher alle Interessierte bitten, aus ihren jeweiligen Vereinen oder Organisationen max. 1 -2 Vertreter_innen zu schicken, die bereit sind, an regelmäßigen Plenumssitzungen teilzunehmen. Wir freuen uns über jede Unterstützung!

Invitation to Network-Meeting for Extern Supporters
The events are going head over healsHowever, by court judgment of 12/11/2014, we have gained time to bring our political refugee protest and the implementation of our self-governed international refugee center forward. For this reason we, the refugess from the school at Ohlauerstr. invite allinterested initiatives, organizations, and associations to our network meeting on Tuesday, 18/11/2014 at 8 p.m. in the Emmaus Church on Lausitzer Platz. The aim of this meeting is to organize and coordinate the support outside of the school and to find a work-sharing strategy for productive actions. We would therefore ask all interested parties, to send max 1 – 2 members from their respective clubs or organizations who are willing to participate in regular plenary sessions. We appreciate every form of support!
You can’t evict a movement!
