>
> end of august: another camp will take place in hamburg, socalled
> schill-y-out-days (referring to racist interior minsters ...)
>
>
> iom-campaign:
> after some discussions about the character of this institution and about
its
> projects we decided to start an information (and image-polution-) campaign
> against iom with a first newsletter, perhaps in a design, which looks like
> its own publications.
> "against transnational migration management - for freedom of movement" is
> proposed as central slogan, so iom would be the first target, but not the
> onliest in this context.
> some persons (from different countries) have taken the responsibility to
> elaborate and to edit this (8 pages) newsletter, which should include
> general information about iom, but also some examples of its concrete work
> e.g. in turkey, ukraine ..., a critical argumentation to its
> women-trafficking-projects, and of course some ideas about the starting
> campaign.
> the newsletter should be finished latest for the polish nobordercamp and
all
> groups want to distribute and publish these informations. in the polish
camp
> but also in strasbourg we will make a presentation of the campaign and
some
> groups will prepare first actions for october, when the international
action
> day will take place (around 12th of october) .
>
>
> international action day:
> a short evaluation about last year has shown, that it is still
problematic,
> to connect such international planned days of actions with local
conditions
> in a useful way. only a few actions took place last year in october, an
> international media attention could not be reached.
> at least in the various indymedia-projects we should be present this year,
a
> clear coordination and common public-work has to be established. we
decided
> to present the idea, to meet and coordinate it in strasbourg-camp.
> as it was proposed in the noborderlist by friends from france and poland,
> the eu-enlargement should play an important role for the action day.
> somebody from warsaw will send out a first draft of a call until june.
> and as it was mentioned above, that some groups want to use the action day
> for first activities against the iom, with manifestations in front of its
> offices, posters ....
>
>
> belarus:
> it was pointed out, that the situation in belarus is more or less like a
> dictatorship and that international solidarity and public attention is
> important and necessary to change the atmosphere of isolation and
> repression.
> one actual example: an oppositional journalist is under pressure and
> threatened to be imprisoned because of critisizm against lukashenko and
> friends from belarus will send out an english summary about this case very
> soon. all other groups are asked to get public attention and, for example,
> to try to get solidarity by international journalists associations.
>
> chechen refugee project:
> the booklet with informations for chechen refugees (with at least
> countryreports about france, belgium, germany, finlandia and poland)
> is more or less finished, some negotations from moscow-friends with an
> adequate and interested ngo are going on to get it printed and distributed
> very soon.
> a website, which includes these informations (in russian language), is
> available too, and it is easy to add more informations from more countries
> and also to update existing reports if necessary. later on perhaps a
second
> version of a booklet will be useful ...
> public work concerning the general situation in chechnya and particularly
> about the situation of refugees is urgently needed and is, with exception
of
> poland, less developed. the open letter of chechen refugees (published in
> www.noborder.org) should be a good base to think about an intensified
> support-campaign: for example to publish articles in left wing newspapers
> (some more about background should be translated soon...) and to organize
> information-events (with existing film-material..). strasbourg-camp could
be
> a good place too to inform people ....
>
>
> people global action (pga)/consulta:
> in strasbourg-camp a "noborder meets pga"-event is planned and recently on
> noborderlist a friend asked to speak about this relationship and possible
> contribution in consulta-project and further cooperation, for example with
> participation in the next pga-conference in leiden/netherlands at end of
> august.
> firstly some people tried to explain the consulta project, but it seems to
> remain very abstract and too organisational for some others. also the
> experiences with and estimations about pga-projects like the indian
caravan
> were very different.
> so some people are critical about the contents and discussion-structure of
> this pga-network. others are not so much interested, because they cannot
> imagine, that such a big alliance project can really be helpful for local
> work. but another position appreciate pga as the best option (in
comparison
> to other networks like attac ...) and as an adequate framework, where
> noborder-positions concerning migration, our demands against borderregimes
> and for freedom of movement should be brought in and anchored as part of a
> comprehensive struggle for global rights.
> strasbourg-camp will give best opportunity for deeper debates about it and
> it was decided that activists from noborder should participate in the
> leiden-conference at least as "observers".
>
>
> next noborder-meeting:
> it was proposed to have the next noborder-meeting in the beginning of
> december in vienna (between anti-nato-activities in prague and the
european
> summit in kopenhagen), but the date as well as the place have to be
> confirmed next weeks (and latest in strasbourg).
