Distribute the latest edition of Daily Resistance newspaper: Non-citizen Rise Up in Bavaria

Daily Resistance Refugee Protest 2016 Bavaria

Non-citizen Rise Up in Bavaria

Dear people of the world,

we have published the new issue of the newspaper “Daily Resistance”, and now it’s the time to bring the paper to the hands of people living in the lagers, by you!

This issue comes “separately” in 7 languages

This issue of Daily Resistance has a difference with the ones before. For this issue we made a complete translation of the articles into 7 different languages. And we distribute them separately. You can have a look at the pdf file for each language:

This issue comes with a comic and poster

Additionally the newspaper comes with the “Ways to stop deportation“ comic for all languages except Urdu and Kurdi (Sorani).
And in the middle of the newspaper there is a colored poster about the Bavarian Non-citizen group „Refugee Struggle for Freedom“ with photos of their latest actions.
This issue has 5 pages: 2 pages about the Noncitizen rise up in Bavaria + 2 pages the stop deportation comic + 1 page of poster

This issue is now ready for distribution!

We are looking for people who have contact to people living in Lagers and so-called refugees and can help to spread Daily Resistance.
It is one thing to produce this paper, print it, hand compile it (!) but a totally different one to get it out into the world.
Join us and spread the newspaper to the newcomers and others concerned!

How can I distribute the newspaper?

Please send us an email on dailyresistance@oplatz.net .
In the email please write:
1- Your postal address
2- Your telephone number
3- How many copies from each language you would like to receive
We would like to ask you to tell us in which languages you would need the newspaper. Because we print different languages separately and for reducing the costs we try to give to each person just the language they want, unlike the mixed format of last issues.
Later on in January we will post you the newspapers.

Daily Resistance is for free.

It is important to us that you understand, that you can get the newspaper if you don’t have money – especially if you live in a lager yourself and like to distribute there.

It’s a focus issue on the Non-citizen Rise up in Bavaria

In the last autumn there was a big Non-citizen rise up in Bavaria.  After one month of mobilisation in different lagers, it has been decided at the non-citizen meeting on the 6th and 7th of September 2016 in Munich to make a demonstration and a protest camp at Sendlinger Tor. The aim was to draw attention on the political situation of non-citizens. The camp had a legal permission for more than a month and up to 100 protesters took part in it during day and night.
After 3 weeks of occupation, the people decided to make a march from Munich to Nuremberg to bring their protest further. They started on 8th of October from Munich. After walking 10 days, they made 200 kilometers to Nuremberg. They had a strong demonstration in front of the BAMF (Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge), calling for their and our demands. As the reason and demand of the protest, they write:
We want for everybody in Germany to have the right to stay, right to work and right to study here. Also, we want the right to choose freely our living place. Our main demand is having the right to stay here. All of other demands can become possible afterwards. They are all civil rights and are just possible when we are accepted as members in this society.
Here in Berlin, working on the Daily Resistance newspaper, we decided to put the focus of this issue on the new protest in Bavaria. We find it important to echo their valuable message to the other people/non-citizens living in the lagers. The articles in this issue are a selection of statements of protestors in the last 3 months and all are written by the non-citizens. 
 

Daily Resistance is the newspaper of “Refugee Movement”

We are a mixed group of people and activists in Berlin who fight against isolation and lagers in oranienplatz and other places.
Daily Resistance is a periodical newspaper on actual paper written by refugee activists aimed to reach people in lagers. We want to inform them on the state of resistance in Germany and to empower them for their everyday resistance against the system.
After publishing  the first and second issues, we have received a lot of positive feedback. Many people started to write for the newspaper or distribute it in lagers. Initially, we printed 2000 copies. Soon they were all gone and we realized we have to print more. In the end, we distributed more than 5000 copies in Berlin, Munchen, Jena, Erfurt, Bremen, Darmstadt, Kiel, Hannover, Delmenhorst, Landshut, Oldenburg … also in Manchester and Vienna. In Thessaloniki, people managed to throw packages of newspapers over the fences of a closed lager. This is all incredible and gave us the energy to continue. We like to thank everybody who moved the newspaper forward and invite all to join in the fight of breaking the isolation in lagers.
This is a communal newspaper, from people for people.

In this issue a lot of activists write about the so called Welcome Culture in combination of the new restrictions to the asyl law and also about the Köln silvester night happening and the sexual violance towards refugee women in lagers. More than that different groups have their space to represent themselves and get connected to the other activists.
Recently the Roma activists started to make different actions in berlin against the deportation of the Roma people to the so called safe Balkan countries which is still going on. You can find out detailed information about it in the last page and also how can you support/join their protest.
