Want to know more about how non-Germans can get more involved in German politics? Not sure whether die LINKE is the thing for you? Want to know who it is who keeps sending you all these messages?
Well, on Thursday (23 August), here’s your chance to find out. Judith Benda and Phil Butland, the co-speakers of the LINKE Berlin Lnternationals will be introducing a discussion on What is die LINKE? Who are die Berlin LINKE Internationals?
It’s in the Luxemburg Saal of Karl Liebknecht Haus on Rosa Luxemburg Platz, and it all starts at 7pm.
Then on Monday 27th, Nadjat Hamdi from the Daughters of Saguia and Rio will be talking about Western Sahara – the forgotten conflict. At the meeting we’ll also be discussing our attitude to Sahra Wagenknecht’s new Aufstehen movement.
This will be at 7pm in our normal meeting place of die LINKE Neukölln offices at Wipperstraße 6 (S- and U-Bahn Neukölln)
By the way, for everyone who was on the anti-Nazi demos on Saturday, or if you weren’t there but want to know what happened, this will be the major talking point at the monthly Stammtisch of the Coalition – an international alliance of activists who we support. It’s at 8pm at the Jägerklause in Friedrichshain (Grünbergerstraße 1).
It seems that Saturday’s Nazi march was only possible due to active support from the Berlin police. Here’s our contribution to the general discussion . And here are some pretty pictures of the demo by renowned Egyptian journalist Hossam El-Hamalawy
Hope to see you at one or more of these events
