The coordination meeting of The VOICE Refugee Forum with the activists of the Caravan for the Rights of Refugees and Migrants together organized the 1st open meeting of refugee activists from Thüringen, Braunschweig, Wuppertal, Hamburg, Hannover, Hof and Berlin on 2nd and 3rd August. During
this meeting representatives of the various refugee struggles in Germany made reports on their struggles as basis for the evaluation of the perspectives of our unity. Further, the concept of the analysis of deportation as the “last ring” in the slavery chain was presented and intensively discussed.

The discussions and preparations are planned to be continued in the next refugee meeting from 5th to 7th September in Jena.

The topics of this meeting will be:

I. The political challenges between solidarity and unity in the resistance and struggles of refugee community:
- Empowering the demands and the struggles of refugee in the communities and the political agenda to unite against deportation and social exclusion through information exchange on the history of refugee repressions by the German State.
- Actual struggles in the refugee movement in Germany
- Last Ring – Deportation is the last ring of the slavery chain
- 20 years of refugee resistance against the silence war by deportation and social exclusion

II. Preparation of the agenda of programs, participations and contribution to the 20th anniversary of our resistance from the 1st of October to 5th of October 2014 in Jena: Who are we and what have we reached for what we expect from the anniversary?
