Latest news from the LINKE Berlin Internationals

Hi everyone

1926863_10155306942065641_7920495992712331396_n   Here is the latest news from the LINKE Berlin LAG Internationals

  1. Klausurtag 28 August (PLEASE RESPOND ASAP)

This is something that we’ve been planning for a while, but we now need to know who will really be coming. On Sunday, 28 August we will be having a day out to enjoy some time together and to plan our future activities. The meeting will be in Hermsdorf, which is in the middle of the woods just a 30 minute U-Bahn ride from Alexanderplatz (http://www.naturfreunde-berlin.de/index.php?id=11-2-8-0-0).

We have the opportunity of sleeping there the night before (cost €11.55, €10.50 for people 16 years and under). And if 10 or more of us stay there, we get the room for virtually nothing. The meeting is likely to last from around 11am till 6pm – we’ll send out a proposed timetable in 2 weeks.

   TO HELP US PLAN CAN EVERYONE PLEASE SEND THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO lag.internationals@die-linke-berlin.de:

  • Will you be there on Sunday?
  • Will you be staying on Saturday night?
  • Will anyone be coming with you?
    (the meeting will be very informal and there will be plenty of time and space for doing things outside. Please feel free to bring family and friends)
  1. Berlin elections in September

The Berlin local elections will be on 18th September and we are considering producing a leaflet and organising a meeting telling non-Germans about their voting rights. There will be the chance to talk about this at the Klausurtag, but the first work has already started. If you want to get involved, please contact us at lag.internationals@die-linke-berlin.de.

 

  1. Coming meetings

Now that Bernie Sanders has endorsed Hillary Clinton, there is plenty to talk about regarding the coming US elections. Victor Grossman will tell us about the current situation on July 26th at 7pm in Karl Liebknecht Haus, Room 205.

Because of Summer holidays and the Klausurtag, we will not be having a “normal” meeting in August. The planned discussion (Judith will be reporting back from the World Social Forum in Canada) will take place at the Klausurtag.

On 27th September, we will be booking a speaker on Islamophobia. We will be discussing subjects for future meetings at the Klausurtag.

 

That’s it for now. Now don’t forget to send a mail to lag.internationals@die-linke-berlin.de , saying whether you’ll be in Hermsdorf on 28 August.

 

Phil and Judith
