Meetings: Break Isolation - Refugee Summer Camp in 2012
The VOICE Refugee Forum Call: Break Isolation - Refugee Summer Camp, 2012
We have to do with the past only as we can make it useful to the present and to the future – Frederick Douglass
Break the Isolation - Refugee Summer Camp, 2012
From 23 August - 02 September 2012 in Thueringen, Germany.
From Thueringen/Germany we are calling on refugee activists to join us to organize together, the first refugee summer camp from 23 August to 02 September 2012. These 10 days working camp of actions and solidarity will feature discussions and exchange of experiences on various aspects of refugee lives in Germany. Refugee activists from concrete struggles across the country against the continued colonial injustice and the war on migration spearheaded by the hawks of Fortress Europe will be attending.
We are continuing to build on our struggle for self-empowerment and solidarity in Germany and we will be highlighting the intersection of our local and national issues with events at the international level including the devastating intervention of the West in our home countries.
We hope to reiterate our belief in the autonomy of our struggle for humanity, care, solidarity and justice with basic human decency that has increasingly become a premium and a rarity in the so-called ‘developed countries’. We expect this basic camp understanding to strengthen our political struggles for self-determination and further our resistance against the all forms of refugee isolation in Germany.
We will engage all refugee communities in Germany to continue to expose the abuse of refugees in this country and the hypocrisy that is the norm here. We want to continue to show that the era of silence over injustice and greed is over with the power of international solidarity in our communities, and to challenge all well meaning individuals and groups to stand up for justice and humanity by showing solidarity with refugee struggles here in Germany.
We know that not only do they want to oppress us, they also want to tell our story, but as long as we have our voices, we will speak for ourselves; about our past, what we are experiencing now and what we make of the future.

Break Isolation - Refugee Summer Camp in 2012
From 23. August to 02. September 2012 in Thueringen.
Our call for a better society or revolution is a daily practice and not less
Our desire to stay consistent in our beliefs and to take a clear stand publicly against the injustice in our Neighbourhoods is more than seeing ourselves as victims and supporters in the struggles. Infact, the solution is ours.
We know all that we stand for to do the right things ourselves!
To expose the racism of the state authorities and the officials' fear for freedom to recognize the problems that we protest against in general, but much of our successes depend on the autonomy of our resistance and in our solidarity to overcome the injustice of the colonialists.
Refugee Summer Camp in 2012!
We want to build a new era of nation-wide refugee community network of activists to inform ourselves beyond the struggles of refugees in their isolation camps (lagers) as we are inviting activists to participate in the break isolation refugee camp of international solidarity in our communities

Break the Racist Isolation of Refugees and support our Resistance!
Show solidarity with our resistance against state racist persecution!
Since 1994, we have accomplished much in our active struggle through empowering grassroots resources of refugee self organization in the struggle for freedom, justice and human dignity in Germany. We believe the only way to fight against the state persecution of refugees in Europe, led by the German government, is to self-organise ourselves and expose the deplorable, miserable and inhuman treatment we are subjected to by individually and collectively speaking about our daily experiences here in Germany and resisting the oppression.
The VOICE Refugee Forum has consistently remained a unique ressource in refugee efforts to strengthen the autonomous structure of the oppressed through sustainable community network of refugees and non-refugee volunteers and activists, who have been inspired by our irrepressible commitment to our daily work and struggle against institutionalized discrimination and societal racism at all levels. The VOICE Refugee Forum has led much of the support in the refugee communities through our consistent role as committed activists and at the same time, promoting grassroots empowerment with vast representation of diverse voices of self organized community structures, to advocate for the respect of our human rights and human dignity in Germany. . . . . .continue >> http://thevoiceforum.org/node/2270
