As activists from Respect!, Women’s Space & Women in Exile, we invite you to 2 consecutive info events to raise awareness about our struggle against illegalisation & Lager:
PART1 // 5th of march:
Respect! will report on the situation of illegalised women workers in the city of Berlin, on their surviving strategies & their collective organization.
The Women’s Space will tell you what it takes to access medical care & family planning in the conditions of isolation imposed by the « bush Lagers » & by the bureaucratic rule of our lives. We will explain what it means to be a mother in exile, struggling for the right to a self-determined life & to education, for ourselves & for our children. We will also try to tell you what it takes to relate to our female bodies, while being forced to live in a crowded, filthy Sammelunterkunft*.
We carry a “double burden”. We struggle not only as Refugees or illegalised persons, but also as women:
In March, we demonstrate twice!
On March 8, for women’s rights & for their visibility. On March 7, Women in Exile call to demonstrate in Potsdam against the Lager, the racist asylum system & its deportations.
With the funds raised by the info event & party on March 5, we want to continue our friend & fellow activist Sista Mimi’s support for her daughter’s education. We lost her last December after 20 years of human rights activism in Germany.
PART 2 // 2nd of april:
Women in Exile will talk about the inhumane living conditions in the Lager & our motivation to fight against it with a focus on women & children. On this occasion, funds will be raised for the group’s work.
More infos coming soon.
