English below / Francais en bas / Türkçe aşağıda

23. Juni 2019, 13 – 18 Uhr im Café Karanfil, Mahlower Str. 7 (U8-Boddinstr.)

Liebe Aktivist*innen, Autor*innen, Verteiler*innen, Leser*innen, Freund*innen und alle interessierten Menschen, 
im März fand die erste Daily Resistance Assembly statt. Viele von euch sind gekommen. Wir haben zusammen über die Zeitung gesprochen, und wir haben gemeinsam Entscheidungen getroffen, wie es mit Daily Resistance weitergeht. Wir wollen das begonnene Gespräch mit euch fortsetzen!
Wir haben entschieden, dass es regelmäßige Assemblys geben soll. Sie sollen einen Ort des Austauschs und Kontakts zwischen verschiedenen Initiativen des Refugee Movements schaffen, um gemeinsam darüber zu sprechen, was es in den Initiativen Neues gibt und was aktuell wichtige Themen sind. 
Die nächste Assembly findet am 23.6.2019 von 13 Uhr bis 18 Uhr im Café Karanfil statt (Mahlower Str. 7, U8-Boddinstr.).

Ende Juli soll außérdem die nächste Ausgabe von Daily Resistance erscheinen. Deshalb schlagen wir vor, diese Assembly auch dafür zu nutzen, um gemeinsam Forderungen zu sammeln, zu erarbeiten und zu erneuern. Wir wollen sie in der nächsten Ausgabe von Daily Resistance abdrucken, vielleicht direkt als Poster zum Rausnehmen.
Wenn ihr Fragen habt oder Themen vorschlagen wollt, schreibt uns eine Mail. Bitte sagt uns Bescheid, ob ihr kommt und ob ihr Kinderbetreuung braucht:dailyresistance@systemli.org


Hoffentlich bis bald!

DAILY RESISTANCE ASSEMBLY June 23rd 2019, 13:00 – 18:00, Café Karanfil, Mahlower Str. 7 (U8-Boddinstr.)

Dear activists*, authors*, distributors*, readers*, friends* and all interested people, our first Daily Resistance Assembly took place in March. Many of you came! Together we discussed the situation of our newspaper and decided, how to continue with Daily Resistance.  Now we would like to continue our conversation with you!
We therefore decided to organise the Daily Resistance Assembly more often. We hope the Assembly can give opportunity for exchange and contact between the many initiatives of the Refugee Movement. We hope the Assembly can discuss, what’s new in our initiatives, and to address those questions that are most important right now.  
Our next Assembly will take place 23.6.2019, 13 to 18 hours at Café Karanfil (Mahlower Str. 7, U8-Boddinstr.).

By the end of July we also want to publish the next issue of Daily Resistance. We therefore suggest to collect common demands, to articulate new demands as well as to renew the existing ones during this Assembly. We want to publish them in the next Daily Resistance, maybe even in form of a poster to take out.
If you have questions or if you want to suggest a topic beforehand, send us an email.Please let us know, if you can come and if you need childcare: dailyresistance@systemli.org


We hope to see you soon!

Daily Resistance Assembly on March 31st

Francais en bas, Deutsch unten

What is the current situation of our newspaper Daily Resistance? How could and should it continue? The first Daily Resistance Assembly takes place on March 31, 2019. Come, discuss and decide with us!

Why: Daily Resistance was created as a newspaper from the Refugee Movement to publish experiences, positions and discussions from the movement. Daily Resistance should be a means of resistance and help us
to organize. But at the moment the editorial group consists only of a small group of activists*. WE LACK THE EXCHANGE WITH OTHER ACTIVISTS, WE
LACK YOUR IMPULSES, EXPERIENCES, IDEAS AND CRITICISM. THAT’S WHAT DAILY RESISTANCE LIVES FROM, AND THAT’S WHAT THIS NEWSPAPER IS FOR.

What: We think that the newspaper needs a different structure, a different way of working and a bigger “we”. It needs a space for collective decisions about Daily Resistance. There we will discuss and clarify together what the newspaper can be and what it can do for us in
our political contexts. This requires a regular opportunity for exchange and contact between people who want to use the newspaper as an instrument.

Our suggestion is to call an assembly: TWICE A YEAR WE WOULD LIKE TO ORGANIZE AN ASSEMBLY. There we want to talk about what is important in your initiatives and how it can appear in the newspaper. It can be about fundamental debates, about the political orientation of the newspaper, but also about individual topics like choice of articles or organisatorial questions about finances, translations or distribution. We meet to get new ideas, to think together and to make the newspaper again a project of many people for many people. Through the assembly many can participate in the newspaper, discuss,without regularly attending the editorial meetings – though each of you is very welcome
there as well. THE ASSEMBLY SHOULD FUNCTION AS A SPACE WHERE WE CAN CONSULT COLLECTIVELY AND MAKE DECISIONS TOGETHER.

Do you have ideas, criticism, suggestions? Come to the first Daily Resistance Assembly:

Date: 31 March 2019, 13 – 18 Location: Aquarium, Skalitzer Str. 6, Kreuzberg
During the meeting there will be childcare and food.

What do we want to use Daily Resistance for?

Wie steht es um unsere Zeitung Daily Resistance? Wie kann und soll es mit ihr weitergehen?
Am 31. März 2019 findet die erste Daily Resistance – Assembly statt. Kommt, sprecht und entscheidet mit!

Warum: Daily Resistance ist als Zeitung aus dem Refugee-Movement entstanden, um Erfahrungen, Positionen, Diskussionen aus der Bewegung zu
veröffentlichen. Daily Resistance soll ein Mittel des Widerstands sein und helfen, uns gemeinsam zu organisieren. Doch im Moment besteht die Redaktionsgruppe nur aus einer kleinen Gruppe von Aktivist*innen. UNS FEHLT DER AUSTAUSCH MIT ANDEREN AKTIVIST*INNEN, UNS FEHLEN EURE IMPULSE, ERFAHRUNGEN, IDEEN UND KRITIK. DENN DAVON LEBT DAILY RESISTANCE, UND DAFÜR GIBT ES DIESE ZEITUNG.

Was: Wir denken, dass die Zeitung eine andere Struktur braucht, eine andere Arbeitsweise und ein größeres „Wir”. Es braucht einen Raum für kollektive Entscheidungen über Daily Resistance. Dort soll
gemeinsam diskutiert und geklärt werden, was die Zeitung sein kann und was sie für uns in unseren politischen Zusammenhängen tun kann. Dazu braucht es eine regelmäßige Möglichkeit für Austausch und Kontakt zwischen Menschen, die die Zeitung als Instrument nutzen wollen.

Unser Vorschlag ist, eine Assembly/Versammlung einzuberufen: ZWEIMAL IM JAHR MÖCHTEN WIR EINE GROßE VERSAMMLUNG ORGANISIEREN. Dort wollen wir uns darüber austauschen, was in euren Initiativen wichtig ist und wie das in der Zeitung erscheinen kann. Es kann um Grundsatzdebatten gehen, um die politische Ausrichtung der Zeitung, aber auch um einzelne Themen oder organisatorische Fragen wie Finanzen, Vertrieb, Übersetzungen u.a. Wir treffen uns, um neue Ideen zu bekommen, gemeinsam zu denken und die Zeitung wieder zu einem Projekt von vielen Menschen für viele Menschen zu machen. Durch die Versammlung können viele an der Zeitung mitwirken und mitdiskutieren, ohne an den Redaktionstreffen regelmäßig teilzunehmen – jede*r von euch ist aber auch dort sehr willkommen. DIE VERSAMMLUNG SOLL ALS EIN RAUM FUNKTIONIEREN, IN DEM WIR UNS KOLLEKTIV BERATEN UND GEMEINSAM ENTSCHEIDEN KÖNNEN.

Habt ihr Ideen, Kritik, Vorschläge? Kommt zur ersten Versammlung von Daily Resistance:

Termin: 31. März 2019, 13 – 18 Uhr Ort: Aquarium, Skalitzer Str. 6, Kreuzberg
Während der Versammlung wird es Kinderbetreuung und Essen geben.

Quelle est la situation actuelle de notre journal Daily Resistance? Comment pourrait et devrait-elle se poursuivre? La première Assemblée de Daily Resistance va avoir lieu le 31 mars. Venez, discutez et décidez avec nous!

Pourquoi : Daily Resistance a été créé comme un journal des refuge*es de publier les expériences, les positions et les discussions des membres du mouvement. Daily Resistance doit être un moyen de résistance et nous aider à nous organiser. Mais à l’heure actuelle, le groupe éditorial se compose uniquement d’un petit groupe d’activiste*s. NOUS MANQUONS D’ÉCHANGES AVEC D’AUTRES ACTIVISTES, NOUS MANQUONS D’IMPULSIONS, D’EXPÉRIENCES, D’IDÉES ET DE CRITIQUES. C’EST DE CA QUE DAILY RESISTANCE VIT, ET C’EST À ÇA QUE SERT CE JOURNAL.

Quoi : Nous pensons que le journal a besoin d’une autre structure, d’une structure différente, une autre façon de travailler et un “nous” plus grand. Il a besoin d’un espace pour des décisions collectives. Là, nous discuterons et clarifieons ensemble ce que le journal peut être et ce qu’il peut faire pour nous dans les domaines suivants, nos contextes politiques. Cela nécessite une occasion régulière d’échange et le contact entre les personnes qui veulent utiliser le journal comme un l’instrument.

Notre suggestion est de convoquer une assemblée : DEUX FOIS PAR AN, NOUS AIMERIONS ORGANISER UNE ASSEMBLÉE. Nous voulons y parler de ce qui est important dans vos initiatives et comment ca peut paraître dans les journaux. Il peut s’agir de débats fondamentaux, sur l’orientation politique du journal,
mais aussi sur des sujets individuels tels que le choix des articles ou des thèmes, des questions d’organisation sur les finances, les traductions ou la distribution. Nous nous rencontrons pour avoir des nouvelles idées, pour réfléchir ensemble et pour faire le journal un projet de beaucoup de gens pour beaucoup de gens. A travers l’assemblage beaucoup peuvent participer au journal, discuter, sans avoir à le faire régulièrement, assister aux réunions de rédaction – bien que chacun d’entre vous soit bienvenu lá-bas aussi. L’ASSEMBLÉE DOIT FONCTIONNER COMME UN ESPACE OÙ NOUS POUVONS
CONSULTER COLLECTIVEMENT ET PRENNER DES DÉCISIONS ENSEMBLE.

Vous avez des idées, des critiques, des suggestions ? Venez au premier Daily Assemblage de résistance :

Your Daily Resistance Editorial Group

Daily Resistance Monthly Editorial Meeting continues on July, 9

On July 9, 2018, the current editorial team of >Daily Resistance< will continue its new monthly meeting. It is the third in a series of social and working get-togethers that tries to bring together people who want to share their ideas about the newspaper, who want to contribute and who want to work on upcoming issues, workshops and interventions.

Become part of our team! We warmly invite everyone who feels eager to contribute as an editor, author, supporter, critique and much more. Let’s discuss and work on concrete tasks and steps (articles, distribution, networking, translations, funding, group structure…). We are curious to get to know you!

Come to Café Karanfil, Mahlower Str 7, Berlin (U8 Boddinstr)! The next meeting dates (every second Monday of the month at 20:00): July, 9; August, 13; September, 10

New issue of >Daily Resistance< is out!

The latest issue of Daily Resistance is out, coming with articles in different languages, namely Arabic, Farsi, English, Turkish, French, Wolof, and German. Have a look on the PDF (part 1 / part 2)
This paper is published and written by a diverse group of so-called refugees who choose not to accept their disfranchisement by the German state. Together with local supporters we look to inform and invite as many people as possible to break the isolation and to get in contact with us.
You can join and contribute to the newspaper as an author or join as translater, lecturer, editor, photographer, distributer, …
The newspaper is now ready for distribution! We are trying to distribute the newspaper european-wide. You are more than welcome to help distributing the newspaper in your city. Just get in contact with us and we organize it together.
This newspaper is an instrument of organization. Local initiatives play an important role in that practice. Every local initiative can form a Daily Resistance committee undertaking tasks such as distributing the newspaper, writing for the newspaper, produce news and visual material for it. But handing copies to the people is not the only goal. One should communicate with the people. Information on the problems of the refugee camps and ideas for possible solutions should be circulated. On can organise events – film screenings, debates, reading activities – depending on their individual conditions.
We are acting with the perspective of alternative media. Therefore, we encourage the distributors and the readers of this newspaper to present their critique, proposals and contributions to the process. We aim to relay the information based on our experience of refugee resistance to the newly coming refugees and to anticapitalist and antifascist movement.

Daily Resistance is an instrument of organization / Daily resistance gazetesi bir örgütlenme aracidir

text in Turkish

DAILY RESISTANCE IS AN INSTRUMENT OF ORGANIZATION

Now we are publishing the third issue of our newspaper. We have distributed five thousand copies of its first issue. Local initiatives played an important role in that practice. However, we would like to stress that Daily Resistance is not only about publication and distribution. This newspaper is an instrument of organization. Every local initiative should aim to establish lasting bonds through this newspaper. Every local initiative can form a Daily Resistance committee. Such a committee should undertake tasks such as distributing the newspaper, writing for the newspaper, produce news and visual material for the newspaper and forming new relations for the newspaper. Handing copies of the newspaper to the people is not the only goal here. One should communicate with the people those who would receive the paper. Information on the problems of the refugee camps where this newspaper is distributed and ideas for possible solutions to those problems should be circulated. Every local group can form a meeting centre wherever it is possible. Meetings can be organized with people to whom this newspaper is delivered. Each local initiative can organize events – film screenings, debates, reading activities – depending on their individual conditions.

We are acting with the perspective of alternative media. Therefore, we encourage the distributors and the readers of this newspaper to present their critique, proposals and contributions to the process.

We aim to relay the information based on our experience of refugee resistance to the newly coming refugees and to anticapitalist and antifascist movements. In line with this purpose, we published our journal, Movement Magazine, and we shared this experience through exhibitions, films, texts and photographs. We aim to enhance, expand and strengthen this practice by publishing Daily Resistance.

The number of the refugees has increased in Germany and in the rest of Europe recently. On the other hand, the laws and legal practices against refugees have become harsher and racist movements are currently on the rise. In contrast with this, a decline and weakening of the resistance movements is clearly observed. There were fewer number of refugees in the years between 2012 and 2015; that was the period when we gained certain rights to a certain extent. There was a fairly more dynamic street struggle. What does this comparison show us? That the resistance movement do not arise spontaneously. Some people should conduct a meticulous and planned work to organize the movement and resistance. In those years between 2012 and 2015 we were involved in a practice: knocking the doors of refugees one by one. We organized meetings in every city. A wilful intervention was at work.

Through Daily Resistance Newspaper, we can reactivate the resistance movement which is apparently at its decline. For that, all activists should take responsibility and do effort. The understanding of the anticapitalist and antifascist movements towards this newspaper as a “refugee newspaper” is an incomplete one. The refugee question is a question of warfare, it is a question of capitalism, a question of racism. The refugee reality is an outcome of all those policies. Therefore, refugee struggle is class struggle since the refugees are at the bottom of the oppressed and exploited classes. It is possible to organize an opposition resistance from below. We have tried to show that in our resistance experience. It can be observed that we played an irritating, disturbing and triggering role in our actions and practices such as long marches, street occupations, parliament occupations, rooftop occupations, party and trade union building occupations.

Even though Daily Resistance is a young newspaper, it has already created a quite positive effect. Now is the time to transform this effect into a permanently organized state. So far the editorial meetings were held in streets, houses or cafés. We need a permanent place. We need a place where the writers, readers and distributors of this newspaper can directly interact and take up decisive roles. We have already made concrete steps for that. The fact that our movement goes by the name “Oplatz” is related to us occupying that place (Oranienplatz), and coordinating our struggle from that place for a long time. That is similar to the names of places that made movements visible worldwide, for example Wall Street, Tahrir, Taksim. Therefore, it is important to demonstrate the Alternative Life in a way that stretches through time and space.

Capitalist states are exercising suppression and besiege of alternative media everywhere in the world. Recently in Turkey more than 20 media organizations including radios and televisions were raided and shut down. These are practices similar to the ones in Nazi Germany, using the Reichstag fire as an excuse for massive crackdowns on opposition. Naturally, European states are closing their eyes and ears to those oppressive, anti-democratic practices due to the dirty agreements and bargains among them. We would like to express our solidarity with those free media workers.

The anticapitalist and antifascist movements in Germany should ask themselves: while people of France rose up and took the streets against the neoliberal labour law, why no leaf stirred in Germany? They can also use our newspaper as a network to organize the united street resistance against the limitation of the social rights, homelessness, unemployment, arms trade, war, capitalism and racism that has increased its physical violence.

Even though our means are limited, we can transform our media into an effective instrument of organization in case all the relevant bodies become active.

Daily Resistance is also a message to well-off segments who campaign, publish books, make films on behalf of refugees and who use us and our struggle as a tool for their own ends. We tell them that as we organize our own action, we can have our own say as well. Stop using us as sheep to the slaughter!

Long live our struggle for Humanization and Communization!

Turgay Ulu

DAİLY RESİSTANCE GAZETESİ BİR ÖRGÜTLENME ARACIDIR

Daily Resestance gazetemizin üçüncü sayısını da hazırlamış bulunuyoruz. İlk baskısını beşbin adet dağıttık. Bu dağıtımda lokal insiyatifler önemli bir rol oynadı. Ancak vurgulamak istiyoruz ki; Daily Resistance, sadece basılıp dağıtımı yapılacak bir gazete değildir. Bu gazete bir örgütlenme aracıdır. Her lokal insiyatif, gazete aracılığıyla kalıcı bağlar kurmayı hedeflemelidir. Her lokal insiyatif bir Daily Resistance komitesi kurabilir. Bu komite hem gazetenin dağıtımını hem gazeteye yazı, haber, fotoğraf iletilmesini ve hem de yeni ilişkiler oluşturulmasını üstlenmelidir. İnsanlara sadece gazete vermek tek amaç değildir. Gazetenin verildiği her insanla mutlaka konuşmalar yapılmaladır. Dağıtımın yapıldığı mülteci kamplarındaki sorunlar ve çözüm önerileri üzerine bilgi alışverişi yapılmalıdır. Eğer mümkünse her lokal grup bir toplanma merkezi bulabilir. Gazetenin ulaştırıldığı insanlarla birlikte toplantılar örgütlenebilir. Her lokal insiyatifin kendi özgül koşullarına göre belirleyebileceği etkinlikler organize edilebilir. Film gösterimleri, tartışmalar, okuma günleri düzenlenebilir.

Alternatif bir medya olma perspektifiyle hareket ediyoruz. Dolayısıyla dağıtımcıların ya da okurların gazete ile ilgili eliştiri, öneri ve katkı yapmak konusunda sorumluluk üstlenmeleri beklenir.

Mülteci direnişi deneyimimizi çeşitli araçlarla yeni gelen mültecilere ve diğer antikapitalist, antifaşist hareketlere aktarmak amacını taşıyoruz. Bu amaçla Movement Magazine dergimizi bastık, sergilerle, filmlerle yazı ve fotoğraflarla bu deneyimi paylaştık. Daily Resistance gazetesiyle de bunu daha yaygın ve etkin kılmak istiyoruz.

Aktüel olarak Almanya’da ve avrupanın diğer ülkelerinde bulunan mülteci sayısı artmış bulunuyor. Diğer yandan mülteilere karşı çıkırtılan yasalar daha sert ve ırkçı hareketler yükselişe geçmiş bulunuyor. Bununla ters orantılı olarak direniş hareketlerinde bir düşüş olduğu gözle görülür vaziyettedir. 2012-2015 yılları arasında daha az mülteci vardı, belli ölçülerde bazı haklarımızı kazanmıştık. Daha dianamik bir sokak mücadelesi söz konusuydu. Bu karşılaştırma bize neyi gösterir? Demek ki, geliştirilen direniş hareketleri kendiliğinden olmuyor. Birilerinin hareketi ve direnişi örgütlemek için planlı bir çalışma yürütmesi gerekir. Sözümü ettiğimiz yıllarda tek tek mülteci odalarının kapıları çalınarak yürütülen bir çalışma vardı. Tüm şehirlerde toplantılar düzenliyorduk. İradi bir müdehale söz konusuydu.

Daily Resistance gazetesiyle, düşüşe geçen direniş hareketni yeniden aktif hale getirebiliriz. Bunun için tüm aktivistlerin sorumluluk alması ve çaba göstermesi gerekir. Antikapitalist-antifaşist aktivistler bu gazeteyi sadece “mülteci gazetesi” olarak algılaması eksik bir kavrayıştır. Mülteci konusu aynı zamanda savaş meselesidir, kapitalizm meselesidir, ırkçılık meselesidir. Mülteci gerçekliği tüm bu politikaların bir sonucudur. Bu mücadele aynı zamanda bir sınıf mücadelesidir. Mülteciler de sömürülen sınıfların en altında bulunuyor. Aşağıdan yukarıya sistem karşıtı direnişi örgütlemek mümkündür. Direniş deneyimimizle bunu göstermeye çalıştık. Uzun yürüyüşler, sokak işgalleri, parlemento işgalleri, çatı işgalleri, ağaç işgalleri, sendika binası ya da parti binası işgalleriyle rahatsız edici ve harekete geçirici bir rol oynadığımız, bu deneyimlerimiz incelenerek görülebilir.

Gazetemiz yeni olmasına rağmen oldukça pozitif bir etkileşim yarattı. Şimdi bu etkileşimi kalıcı örgütlülüklere dönüştürme zamanıdır. Şimdiye kadar gazete toplantıları sokaklarda, evlerde ya da kafelerde yapıldı. Sabit bir mekana ihtiyacımız var. Yazarların, okuyucuların ve dağtımcıların direkt ilişkiye geçebileceği, etkin rol üstlenebileceği bir mekana ihtiyacımız var. Bunun için somut girişimlerde bulunduk. Hareketimizin Oplatz ismiyle anılması bir mekanı işgal edip uzun süre buradan mücadeleyi koordilne edişimizle ilgilidir. Dünyada Wall Striet, Tahrir, Taksim gibi mekan isimlerinin hareketi görünür kılmasıyla benzer bir durumdur. Alternatif hayatı bir mekanda zamana yayılan bir biçimde ortaya koymak bu nedenle önemlidir.

Dünyada altanatif medya üzerinde kapitalist devletlerin baskısı ve kuşatması söz konusudur. Bakınız Türkiye’de yirmi civarında radyo, televizyon ve diğer medya araçları, devlet tarafından işgal edilerek kapatıldı. Almanya geçmişinde Reichtag yangını bahane edilerek yapılan uygulamalara benzer uygulamalardır bunlar. Avrupa devletleri aralarındaki kirli anlaşma ve pazarlıklardan dolayı tüm bu anti demokratik uygulamalalara gözünü kapatıyor doğal olarak. Bu özgür medya emekçileriyle dayanışma içinde olduğumuzu vurgulamak isteriz.

Almanya’daki antifaşist ve antikapitalist hareketlerin, Fransa’da yer yerinden oynarken neden Almanya’da yaprak kıpırdamadığını düşünmeleri gerekir. Onlar da sosyal hakların kısıtlanmasına karşı, evsizliğe, işsizliğe, silah ticaretine, savaşa, kapitalizme ve fiili şiddetini artıran ırkçılığa karşı birleşik sokak direnişini örgütlamak için gazetemizi bir ağ olarak kullanabilirler.

Olanaklarımız kısıtlı da olsa tüm ilgililerin aktif hale gelmesiyle medya araçlarımızı etkin bir örgütlenme aracına dönüştürebiliriz.

Daily Resistance, mülteciler adına kampanya yürüten, kitap çıkartan, film yapan ve bizim eylemlerimizi ve bizleri birer alet olarak kullanan tuzu kuru kesimlere de bir mesajdır. Onlara diyoruz ki; biz kendi eylemimizi örgütlediğimiz gibi kendi sözümüzü de söyleyebiliriz. Bizi kurbanlık koyun gibi kullanmaktan vazgeçin artık.

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.
