MIGRANTE-Europe, a refugee organisation based in Amsterdam, is planning a demonstration in Berlin outside the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) conference.

  Thursday, 8 June British election night

A few weeks ago, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party was trailing the Conservatives by 20%. The latest polls point to a hung parliament – and there’s still over a week to go.

We’d like to watch – and hopefully celebrate – election night together, and are looking to find a suitable venue. Whatever happens, we want to share the experience in good company.

  Monday, 19 June, 7pm: Why the German election is important for internationals

In September, there will be a general election in Germany. The implications go wide beyond German borders.

At our regular monthly meeting, JUDITH BENDA, direct candidate in Neukölln and will be speaking alongside MIRIAM ACED and TINA LEE from http://www.migrationvoter.com, a Website which has covered the recent international elections with comment and analysis.

Although only German passport holders are allowed to vote, everyone has a part to play. Come to discuss what the election means to you and what you can do for the campaign.
