Coming up this week

Hi everyone

There’s lots going on in the next week, so here’s a special extra Newsletter from the LINKE Berlin Internationals.

Minutes from our Summer Camp

You can read the first results of our Summer Camp in Hermsdorf here. Its still not fully complete, but you can get a general idea of what we were talking about and what we want to do.

Organising meeting on Wednesday

Speaking of which, our next organising meeting is on Wednesday, 19th June at 7pm in Café Plume, Warthestraße 60. The main discussion will be a review of the Summer Camp, so if you were there, or if you couldn’t make it but would have liked to be there, please come along.

Protest at the Sudan Conference in Berlin

One of my highlights of the Summer Camp was the discussion on solidarity with the protests in Sudan. Well, now we have the chance to do something concrete. On Friday the imperial powers will be meeting in Berlin to decide what they want to do about Sudan.

SudanUprising has called a rolling protest, which starts at 4pm on Thursday and carries on till 5pm on Friday. Its at the German foreign ministry, Werdescher Markt and there’s a facebook Event here. Please try to show your support.

Fest der Linken

On Saturday, 22nd June there’ll be the Fest der Linken at Rosa Luxemburg Platz, and as usual we’ll be having a stall. Come by to say “hello”, or even better, help us on a shift (fill in the dudle here).

Next meeting: System Change not Climate Change: how can we save the planet?

Our next proper meeting is next Monday, 24th June on “System Change not Climate Change: how can we save the planet?Its at 7pm in the Roter Laden, Weidenweg 17 (U-Bahn Weberweise) and everyone is welcome. 

Newsletter 15 June

Welcome to this week’s LINKE Berlin Internationals Newsletter. We had a good Summer camp last week, and we’ll soon be publishing minutes of the discussions here.

One of the main discussions at Summer Camp was about the current counter-revolution in Sudan. The Western powers will be meeting in Berlin this Friday to discuss Sudan. The Sudan Uprising group has called a protest outside. At the moment it will be at the German foreign ministry, Werderscher markt 1 at 2pm, but watch this space for possible new information.

Everything is free, but we’d appreciate a donation for food.

 

Getting there – we are travelling together on Saturday, meeting at Alexanderplatz on the Northbound platform of the U8 at 1.30pm (front train).

We’re getting the 13.37 U-Bahn to Wittenau If you want to meet us in Wittenau, we’ll be getting the 220 bus to Almutstraße at 14.04 (no compromise on the times, as the buses only go every 20 minutes).

Contact person for the trip is Yonatan (0151 66 00 81 14)

 

From Almutstraße it’s a 10 minute walk to the Naturfreundhaus (see map below)

The Naturfreundhaus in Berlin Zone B. At the week-end, people with Monatskarten can take someone with them, so you shouldn’t have to buy a ticket.

 

If you can’t make this time, or are coming on Sunday, use www.vbb.de to find how to get to Almutstraße from where you are.

 

Bedding – the Naturfreundehaus has beds for up to 32 people, but you need to bring your own bedding. Alternatively, you can rent bedding for €4 there.

 

Food and drink – we will be providing vegan food for everyone, but please let us know if you have any allergies. On Saturday evening, we will sell alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (any profits to go to our new Website)

 

Anything missing from the programme? – On Sunday lunchtime, we have an hour free for 4 short presentations. We’ll decide what to discuss on Saturday evening. If you’d like to make a short presentation, or want to make a suggestion, please let us know.

 

Any questions? Please ask
