The comic contains useful and important information for people under threat of deportation, but also for people supporting them. Spread it and share the link in your social networks!
Anyone can print and distribute copies anywhere in Germany. It would be cool if all local initiatives could organize the printing and distribution in their areas. You can download the files for printing. For those in Berlin, we have hard copies already printed. If you have some capacity to distribute in Berlin, please contact us.
Dear people from all over the world, this is the second issue of the newspaper >Daily Resistance< (Read it as a PDF)! It is written by people in the same position like you as so-called refugees who don’t accept their disfranchisement by the German state. They write about their fight and share their opinions to reach out to people who are in the same situation. They are supported by very few citizens and friends in solidarity. Together, we are a growing group of people who are fighting against a system of politicians, media and capitalists that is based on dehumanizing laws, that criminalizes and instrumentalizes people and that exposes itself by the capitalized lager industry.
After releasing the first issue of Daily Resistance, we have received a lot of positive feedback. Many of people started to show interest in writing for the newspaper or distributing 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 … 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.
You can join and contribute to the newspaper as an author or join as translater, lecturer, editor, photographer, distributer, … get in contact with us.
The newspaper is now ready for distribution!
We are trying to distribute the newspaper german-wide. You are more than welcome to help distribute the newspaper in your city. Just get in contact with us and we organize it together. We are also working on a list of contact persons who have access to lagers and can distribute the newspaper by putting it directly into the hands of the adressed, past the security. Please get in contact with us, if you can distribute.

16th February 2016 at 6pm start at LaGeSo (Turmstraße 21, 10559 Berlin) to Bundestag
In the next days the parliament will vote on a new law. This racist law is directed aggressively against refugees.
They Asylum Package II includes:
• “Special reception camps” for people from “secure” countries of origin, or people who are accused to have destroyed their documents, will be opened. In these camps the asylum procedure should be completed in three weeks with the aim to deport people faster.
• People coming from a country where there is war and who have the status of ‘Subsidiary Protection’ shall not be allowed to bring their family from abroad during the first two years of their stay.
• Deportations of people who are sick will be easier. Illnesses that people had already before they came to Germany will not be an obstacle to deportations anymore.
• Algeria, Tunesia and Marokko shall be declared as secure countries of origin in order to deport people more easily.
This Asylum Package II is an act of isolationist politics and division! Let us not be played off against each other! Let’s get on the streets and be loud against these racist laws, against the violence of camp security and against the Lagers!
For the right to stay and the right to family for everyone!
Solidarity is: resistance!!

Es ist unumgänglich einzusehen, dass Flüchtlinge nicht aus Spaß aus ihrer Heimat fliehen. Sie tun es aufgrund sehr schwerwiegender Gründen, wie politischer Verfolgung oder unzumutbarer sozialen Verhältnissen, welche oft lebensbedrohlich für sie sind. In der Hoffnung auf ein Leben in Frieden und Freiheit, setzten sie sich für die Flucht großen Gefahren aus und lassen ihre gesamte Existenz, ihre Familien, Freundinnen und Freunde zurück.
