Reflection and empowerment hour

If you are involved in any kind of refugee (self-) organization, supporter structures or charity organizations we would like to invite you to our empowerment workshop.

There is a lot to be done and the current situation of refugees in Germany and Europe requires us to rethink political strategies and use the power we have appropriately.

Refugee protest Camp Hannover

Seminar: Refugees protest camp, Hannover

Saturday 31th January, at 16.00h, New Yorck (Bethanien)

On 24th May 2014 dozens of Sudanese refugees occupied Weißekreuzplatz, in Hannover and they established the “Refugees protest camp – Hannover” as a sign of refugees’ struggles and resistance against asylum policy in Germany.
They raised their voice to protest against the asylum policy in Germany as well as they are rejecting collaboration between the German and the Sudanese government.
How is the situation in Sudan? What about the suffering of refugees in Niedersachsen as an example of refugees in Germany?
Up to now about seven months have past. What are the demands of them? How is their situation now? How did the authorities in Niedersachsen and in Hannover treat them? What are the difficulties and challenges? What are their plans for the future? What kind of support are they looking for?
You are very welcome and invited to come and join us in our Seminar to listen to and exchange with representatives from refugee protest camp, Hannover!
