Join us in the Trampoline House today from 4-5:30 pm for a guest lecture by the Crisis Mirror group on the refugee and asylum system in Greece.
The now closed-down refugee camp Patras in Greece
Today, Greece experiences the deepest economic crisis since World War II. In order to shift the attention of the public from the repeated economic scandals, corruption, and unemployment, the government and mainstream media have represented migrants as a threat to the “national security,” and stopping undocumented migration (by raising walls and opening camps) has become a priority in the political agenda. A result of this has been the rise of a neo-nazist party which, among other things, took advantage of the cultivated anti-immigration sentiment. However, immigrant organizations and their supporters have organized and are claiming their rights as citizens through support networks, information exchanges and demonstrations. Join us in this discussion and tell us your experiences!
This week is full of great events:
- today, we continue our new great program for women (and their children)
- on Wednesday, Noura and Piv conduct a Stop Violence Against Women workshop
- on Friday, Crisis Mirror guest lectures on the conditions of refugees in Greece
- on Saturday, Trampoline House participates in the festival 48 timer by hosting an OPEN HOUSE, where you can taste food from all over the world, take part in half-hour Arabic classes, and learn about the Danish asylum system.
For further details, please check our Calendar.
