There’s a lot of events on this list (there’s a lot of things going on) going up till the end of the year, so we’ve tried to bundle them so you can go to the ones you need to see at the moment. Here goes.
This (long) week-end
We have a stall at 2 peace festivals this week-end – on Saturday (1pm – 5pm) at Nettelbeckplatz in Wedding and on Sunday (2pm – 6pm) at Petersburger Platz in Friedrichshain
On Sunday from 3pm we’ll be joining Chilean and Brazilian activists at Brandenburger Tor protesting the 43rd anniversary of the Chilean coup and the more recent on in Brazil a couple of weeks ago.
And on Monday there is the second of our information meetings about non-Germans and the Berlin elections at 7pm in the jugend Widerstand Museum, Rigaerstraße 9-10
On Friday 16th, there is the final rally for the LINKE election campaign at 3pm at Alexanderplatz. This will be followed by the LINKE Kinonacht in the Haus Schwarzenberg, Rosenthalerstraße 39
On Saturday 17th there’s the demo against TTIP from Alexanderplatz. Last time, the demo was so big that we never found each other, so we’re meeting at 11.30 in front of the Marx and Engels statue (please come punctually).
On Saturday 17th there’s also the demo for abortion rights and against the right-wing “Lebensschützer”. We’ll have people with our banner at Brandenburger Tor from 1.30pm with more people coming later after the TTIP demo.
And if that’s not enough for one day, on Saturday afternoon, Yannis Varoufakis, Katja Kipping and others will be speaking at the Astra (Revalerstraße 99 near Warschauer Straße station). As there’s not enough room for an extra stall outside, we’ll be giving out leaflets outside. If you can be there by doors open at 4pm to help out, please contact me. The meeting starts at 5pm.
Finally for the long week-end, die LINKE Neukölln have invited us to their election party, It start at 5pm in the Hangover on Richardplatz. Sunday 18th. – don’t forget to vote before you go
Coming group meetings
While all those elections were going on, we’ve booked all the speakers for our meetings up till the end of the year (4th Tuesday in the month, Karl Liebknecht Haus at 7pm). We’ll be producing a leaflet to give out at the Varoufakis meeting at the latest.
- On 27 September, Pazhareh Heidari will be speaking on From the AfD to the Burkhini ban – why is Islamophobia on the rise in Europe?
- On 25 October, Klaudia Paech and Paweł Wita from Razem Berlin will be speaking on Razem – the new Polish left?
- And on 22 November, Wellington Bernardes Delazari will be speaking on Brazil after the coup.
For some reason, we think that not many people would turn up to a meeting on 27 December, so the meeting after that will be 24th January.
Last but not least – Christmas party
Our new culture committee has sprung into action and suggested a date for our Christmas party – Saturday, 10th December. We have provisionally booked the cellar of the Coop Café and the German/Iranian rapper Kaveh has agreed to perform. More details (including a fuller culture programme) to follow, but if you know of any reason that this date won’t work, please tell us as soon as you can. Otherwise, watch this space.
