Let’s ruin PEGIDA’s birthday!

Saxony sucks

Joint call for action by the groups URA, e*vibes, AusserKontrolle und gruppe polar.

About a year ago the right-wingpopulist PEGIDA marched through Dresden for the first time. Since then there have been gatherings of racists on a daily basis somewherein Saxony. The number of attacks on refugees, their accommodations and their supporters are on the rise, leading to staggering heights, backed by a growing right-wing hegemony. The pogrom-like riots in Heidenau are a symbol of these developments. Over the last few months the anti-fascist interventions aimed at preventing the worst and supporting affected persons on sight as well as the protests of refugees. There are also positive developments: Everywhere people organize themselves in neighborhood-initiatives to support refugees. Many activists help refugees cross borders and thousands demonstrated, also in Dresden for a “culture of welcome”. However, all these initiatives fizzle out under the pressure of toughened asylum-laws and racist terror. They almost seem cynical against the background of tens of thousands of deaths at Europe’s external borders. On October 19, PEGIDA wants to celebrate its first birthday. For us this is a reason to once again concentrate on the heart of the racist beast and prevent Bachmann and his crew from taking even one step without being disturbed.

Germany is not the solution! Continue reading

From 3pm it’s time to get ready,…

…steady, go, on_stage!
Yes! First: warming up. Awakening the fun of and desire for acting.
Then: trying out (inside and OUT of yourself)!

With-one-an_other. Wildly, calmly, funnily, earnestly getting into improvisation, getting animated by me, actress, Anna.
Playing with slipping into “alien others’, playing with the ‘familiar peculiarity’.
In a room for women*lesbians*trans folks*inter folks*, in which we can play with topics of gender without being a puppet of gender.

The drama workshop is limited to 10 people, so drop us an e-mail to register: cafemdresden@riseup.net
