Call for support to the refugee conference at Mehringhof

Nov. 14th  – 16th there will be the Refugee Conference at Mehringhof in Berlin

The conference is organized by and for people, who are positioned as refugees in Berlin and surrounding areas in Brandenburg

We are a small group of supporters, who are trying to help out with some of the infrastructure. We are not involved in the actual conference program, nor do we think we should be. So, in order for the activists to meet and focus on their issues, a lot of stuff is needed, specifically interpreters, child care, food, sleeping  places, and some general stuff.

CALL FOR SUPPORT – this is the Email were you can make contact if you have anything to offer ohme@riseup.net

It would be so great if you and/or your groups and projects could help out with the following:

1. Interpreters for the following languages – mainly to/from English French to and from (these are some suggestions – any additional

languages welcome!): – Arabic – French – Farsi – Spanish- Bambara – Turkish – Romani – Italian – Urdu

 

It is expected that the main conference languages will be English and French. Hence, we thought it best to have one meeting

of all translators/interpreters before the conference to talk about how to coordinate different translation situations.

We are trying our best to organize headsets. If you have any ideas as  to where to get them and how to set them up,

please let us know 🙂 If you are interested, please let us know, which languages you can interpret to and from and for how long you

can imagine to do so (e.g. “French Arabic; 2×1.5 h with break”).

If you would like to help please e-mail ohme@riseup.net.

 

2. Child Care: It would be great to be able to offer child care. The best solution might be to have an extra group that is responsible

for preparing the space, figuring out what is needed (toys, arts and crafts stuff, etc.) and how to entertain the kids, covering the shifts, etc.

If you are interested, please let us know if you would like to be  part of such a group or might just want to cover a shift,

and if it’s ok to pass on your info to those, who are also interested.
If you would like to help please e-mail
ohme@riseup.net.

 

3. Food The conference organizers would like to make in possible for people to cook themselves, while supporters are being asked to get the necessary ingredients and help out cutting veggies, etc..

If you are interested, please let us know if you’d be up for food shopping and helping with the cooking.

Please e-mail ohme@riseup.net.


4.
Other stuff

  • Please collect: – BVG– and train tickets from now on – receipts from copy shops, office equipment, etc.
  • contacts, who can afford to donate compensations for services like translations, etc.
  • tobacco, filters, papers, cigarettes
  • cash
  • who would organize sleeping places for conference attendees
  • to organize transport to and from the conference
  • for organizing and setting up tech equipment, such as sound system; audio equipment for translations; computers; internet access

 

To organize a PARTY: the conference organizers would be happy if someone were to  organize a get together/party on Sunday.

Is there a group, who’d be up for doing that?

If you are interested in organizing sleeping places or the party and/or in helping out with transport and/or technical equipment,

please stop by at the conference orga meeting, which takes place every Friday around 7pm at Oranienplatz (in 28 doors).

Any help is welcome! Feel free to spread the word and to e-mail ohme@riseup.net for questions related to this mail.

Thank you and all the best.
