“We!R ist ein unabhängiges Radioformat von Friends and Enemies, das sich im Kampf der Geflüchteten gegen ihre Diskriminierung in Deutschland gegründet hat. Wir verbinden regionale soziale Kämpfe in einer antikapitalistischen Plattform, im Mittelpunkt stehen selbstorganisierte Proteste von Migrant*innen, speziell von geflüchteten Frauen*, LGBTIQ und anderen marginalisierten Gruppen.”
Dear Friends and Enemies,
I am very exited to announce and invite you all to the opening of Wearebornfree! Cafe` at Waldemarstr.46, 10999 Kreuzberg- Berlin on the 15th of July 2016 starting from 11am.
As far as you, since the eviction of our protest camps at Oranienplatz and the school- Ohlauerstrasse. After the fake agreements there has been no anymore platform for us to meet again in a normal way. Yet there are a lot to be done and due to the current situation of refugees in Germany and Europe as a whole requires us to rethink, use the time and space we have strategically.
The Cafe` will serve as a platform for all friends and enemies, and more especially the queer refugees, women and children. But also as strategic platform to reach those we cannot reach through street protests such as Voters, Donors/ Fundraiser, Authorities, police, Neighbors, Academies, and so on politically, socially/ culturally and economically.
There will be film screens, book readings/ spoken words, discussions, music, and radio shows as well as soup and African food some times.
The price is your presence, willingness to share and empower Wearebornfree! Cafe` programs.
Every weekend Friday to Sunday from 11am- 9pm Wearebornfree! Cafe`
Sundays from 6-9pm radio shows and discussions
Wednesdays from 6-9pm book readings/ spoken words and discussions
Fridays from 6-9pm film screenings/ Music and discussions
If you are involved in any kind of refugee (self-) organization, supporter structures or charity organizations we would like to invite you to our empowerment workshop.
There is a lot to be done and the current situation of refugees in Germany and Europe requires us to rethink political strategies and use the power we have appropriately.
The current wave of welcoming culture is very important in order to show alternatives to the racist hatred that is getting stronger each day. At the same time this wave comes exactly at the time when our refugee movement has become very weak to almost not-existing anymore. The so-called civil society chooses to be in the helping position instead of supporting self organized refugee resistance. This is a step back, it puts us back to being the helped supposedly passive object while the helpers are becoming a new lobby.
