Wearebornfree! Empowerment Radio #6 Women* Space is Everywhere!

June 12th, 5pm-10pm, Waldemarstr. 46, 10999 Berlin


3 months ago refugee and migrant women* occupied the main stage of the International Refugee Conference in Hamburg. We talked about the motivation behind this political intervention and its consequences. What is refugee women’s* role in the movement and how can we build links between feminist and refugee activism? 
We explored these and other topics on a wonderful Sunday evening with our guests Bahar from Kanal, Jennifer Kamau and Lea Höppner from IWS, La Toya Manly-Spain, Mai Shutta, Rajaa, Zari Harat & our live-audience.
The talkshow was accompanied by DJ*_ane Masta Sai
 and Amdi prepared the food. 
The evening was hosted and moderated by the team of Wearebornfree! Empowerment Radio.

Call for Rally on Wed. (Feb. 24th): acute threat of eviction of radical queer wagonplace Kanal

KanalJust recently we learned from the press that Senat together with the Berlin districts published a list of places where so called „MUF“ (modular shelter for refugees) should be built. The only place on this list where people are living is our home in Kiefholzstraße 74, where a lager should be built to force us to leave. Until now there was no direct communication with us.

While BIM – Berlin grounds and houses company (that is maintaining selling property of the state) is fighting against us for two years and trying to make us sign a contract with racist paragraphs that forbid refugees, rrom_nja and people without papers or with Residenzpflicht to come to our ground.
