Refugee Lager Visit and support in Thueringen
Break isolation of refugees from the lagers

More drivers, cars and (media-)activists needed: Call for support of
refugee network in Thüringen

We are currently building up broader and stronger networks of refugees in
Thüringen. For this, we frequently visit lagers, organize info-events and
conferences. Besides the lack of money, we urgently need drivers who can
take the activists from Jena, Zella-Mehlis, Apolda, Erfurt, Weimar,
Waltershausen and Felchta to the different lagers or events. If you need
more information from Thueringen, please get in touch with us:

If you have free time for some days or weeks in summer and you want to
take part and to join in supporting our daily struggles in Thueringen:
From our growing spirit of resistance against isolation in refugee lagers
we are calling on activists and supporters to feel free to come over here
and to drive with the activists to refugee lagers. Media activists are
welcome as part of our documentation program. If you are from outside
Jena/Thüringen, we can provide a free apartment (flat) from middle of
August until October in Jena.

We are organised with refugees in the lagers for public events and
community exchange. We have continued our visits to lagers for exchange
program and documentation of the refugee communities here on regular
basis, these will be highlighted during the meetings of all the refugee
lager delegates in Thueringen in the month of September this year before
the refugee demonstration on the 22nd of October, in Erfurt.

Break the isolation of the refugees - close down the lagers!
