Social Struggle Construction Site – Weekend of discussion and action in #Leipzig – #Connewitz

Leipzig. Germany. We, sincerely, invite everyone to spend the weekend of the 4th until the 6th of September with us. Especially in tough and challenging times, we see the need to come together, get to know each other, to discuss and to develope strategies of action. While the fascization of state and society keeps on stepping forward, we face increasing repression against emancipatory structures and individuals. Therefore we need do find and construct moments of collectivity. To place it somewhere, we decided to arrange the setting in Connewitz. The local struggles are marked by the urban fights for collective spaces as well as by antifascist resistance in the 90s. We find them today in the resistance against fascists and structural violence of capitalism and the police. Connewitz, as an antifascist rampart in Saxony offers the opportunities to self organization and to form and grow resisting and struggling structures. Of course that’s the reason, why the area has been in focus of repression authorities for years: antifascist and struggling structures shall be demolished and stamped into the ground. This plays into the hands of fascists within and outside the state and the real estate market with the violent interest of the capital. For us it is a concern to find collective answers to oppose the attacks and to consolidate relationships supra regional. The weekend should create opportunities to learn from past and recent struggles in order to build on in the present and future.
