There‘s lots more going on in the next couple of months. Here‘s just a sample.

On 1 May, we‘ll be having a stall at the MyFest at Mariannenplatz. Come and visit us between 12 o‘clock and shortly before 6pm. If you‘d like to help out on the stall, enter your name on the doodle here:

On 2 June, we‘re organising a panel discussion in German on the growth of the far right in Europe. 6.30pm in Karl Liebknecht Haus, Rosa Luxemburg Platz. Speakers confirmed so far are French MP Daniele Obono and Gerd Wiegel who researches anti-fascism for the LINKE parliamentary fraction. We‘re also trying to get a speaker from Hungary. This site will be updated when we have more information: 

On 16-17 June, we‘re having our annual retreat at the Naturfreundehaus in Hermsdorf. We‘ll be sending out a first programme with more information, hopefully this week. Meanwhile there‘s this.

Finally for our meetings. Turkey has just called snap elections for the end of June. HDP-HDK Berlin-Brandenburg co-speaker Erkin Erdogan will be talking to us after the election on 25 June at Die LINKE Neukölln 

Finally 2 important actions:

On Tuesday 24 April, there‘s a protest action „No award for exploitation – make amazon pay“ against the sward of the Axel Springer prize to Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. There‘s a rally at 4pm at Oranienplatz which will be marching to a ver.di protest outside Axel-Springer Haus with Amazon workers and Bernd Riexinger at the ver.di Haus at 6pm.

And at the end of May (probably 27th) the AfD will be trying to march through Berlin. Large counter-protests are being planned by various anti-racist organisations.
