A CALL TO JOIN THE PROTEST MARCH FROM MÜNCHEN TO NÜRNBERG

From 7th of October, 2016, the protesting refugees at Sendliger Tor in Munich will start a new mode of protest against the inhuman living circumstances and the dreadful  asylum law in Germany. Right now, there is a protest camp at Sendliger Tor – München. We’ll send you as an attachment the press declaration of the strikers announcing a protest march from München to Nürnberg in order to continue the protest together.

The purpose of this protest form is to mobilize refugees living in Lagers to join in. After an intensive debate, the protesting refugees and supporting groups decided to establish 5 working groups. Every group or individual who is willing to make this protest a success is invited to support us for the whole protest as well as for parts of this march.
There are already some supporters, but we still need everyone for succeeding in our big plans. The focused quantity will increase the protest’s quality, thus the collective character of the aim is on the shoulders of the all of the participating and supporting groups, means all are responsible for this success. The workgroups will work on
different areas of responsibility. To get a clearer picture we’ll introduce their tasks in the following part.

COMMUNICATION WORK GROUP:

1. Start contacting groups and individuals in the cities which we’ll pass along our rout to Nürnberg to activate local support. In the following we’ll give you a few examples. It is important to ensure the safety e.g. by having security guards furthermore solidarity is very welcome. The group has to write a list with of all active groups and individuals so that the logistic group can use this information and structures.

2. Connect to lawyers who are familiar with the asylum laws or/and the rights of assembly – to solve problems quickly.

LOGISTICS WORK GROUP

Refugees as well as activists form this group. This group is responsible to solve all logistical issues on both tracks.

1. For this protest march we need different permissions – it has to be registered. We need places to rest; we need to hold local demonstrations… to ensure safety to all refugees this part is really important. Parts of the protest march can/should be registered by local groups.

2. We need cars for all the material and baggage of the refugees as well as a caravan with a toilet… in case we can’t find a service area.

3. Important things in both routes are:
1. Places to sleep
2. Tents and sleeping bags
3. Food and drinks
4. Escort car
5. Toilettes and the possibility to take a shower
6. Electricity (especially on countryside)
7. First aid and medical support
8. Transpis, Flyer, megaphone…
9. …(list is open – if you see other support which is needed feel free
to say so. Just contact the group)

MEDIAGROUP

1. Right now most of the journalists know the reasons for the refugees’ protest camps and spread the news in accordance to their press declarations. Since we need the truth to be published it is really important that we’ll take care of the presswork. We need a list of freelance journalists and press contacts to tell them new information. It is also important to initiate contact to Journalists which are interested in the refugee issues to join into the protest march to create a steady publicity. This website will be administered by refugees to publish their point of view. Therefore, it’ll become the mouthpiece of the protest and should be spread. Each involved group is welcome to write its own articles to spread the refugees protest. BE ACTIVE!!

2. Furthermore there will be press conferences in different cities which have to be organised to ensure local press activities. Organise places for the press conferences, inform the local press and use your contacts!

 DOCUMENTATION GROUP

1. It is very important that this protest march is accompanied and documented by photographers, journalists, film-makers etc… everyone who is experienced or knows someone who is experienced is needed!

FINANCE GROUP

1. This protest still exists although we had many huge repressions and problems. Now it is moving, together with refugees and activists, to another level. Therefore we need financial support. We ask every organisation which condemns the inhuman laws and the isolation of refugees for support. Please contact our financial group and make a
