Some months ago, international refugee and sans-papiers movements
started to organize together a european wide protest march or caravan
to Brussels. The outcome of the preperation meetings until today is
the organisation of decentralized actions regarding the migratory- and
assylum policies in
Europe, and the mobilization for the protest march. The campaign
started officially on the 18th of december, global day of action
against racism, for the rights of refugees, migrants and displaced
This time, the Berlin refugee strike group is organizing the next preparation meeting in Freiburg. We therefore invite all self-organizations or initiatives of refugee and sans-papiers in Europe to join this meeting. It will take place on the 4th and 5th of January 2014 in the KTS Freiburg, in Baselerstr. 103, 79100 Freiburg im Breisgau and it will start on Saturday at 1pm. One of the crucial points to be discussed on this meeting will be weather we arrive in Brussels in may for the European parliament elections or in June for the European migration summit. See bellow the proposal of topics for the meeting. The sleeping places and meals will be organized by the Berlin group.
