Newsletter March 2020

Dear people,

also under the impression of the racist murders in Hanau and the violence of Europe at its external borders we would like to draw your attention to some events.
We continue to hope to structurally counter racism and violence in the long term and to create partnership structures based on solidarity and respect.

1. further education: cooperation between migrant and established social organizations
Questions about the immigration society can no longer be discussed and shaped from a proxy perspective of the dominant society. Long before Germany declared itself a country of immigration, numerous active migrant self-organizations already existed. Their expertise was rarely
perceived and even less recognized as equal. In the further training, conditions for a cooperative partnership are analyzed and possibilities of clarifying the assignment are worked out, which do justice to the different organizational degrees and cultures. More about the training and registration you can find

2. climateDeSol: workshops in April and May 2020 climate decolonial and solidary
The glokal project KlimaDeSol (Climate decolonial and solidary) wants to give impulses to the climate movement for a democratic, decolonial and solidary movement for climate justice. KlimaDeSol will offer four workshops in the spring: on April 11, 18, 25, and May 09, 2020.
You can find more information on the project website

3rd registration: Specialist day glokal project “For a welcome without paternalism”.
How can non-paternalistic collaboration succeed? We would like to draw your attention once again to the
of the glokal project “For a welcome without paternalism” on April 24, 2020. We invite: Refugees and activists or employees of initiatives or associations working with refugees.

4. fortress europe and racist violence
Please read and spread the
Call for transnational solidarity and against racism and war
which hundreds of initiatives and organizations have signed since Europe is again “defending” its fortress walls against refugees at the Greek-Turkish border using massive violence.
