After our successful protest last summer we are planning another Black Lives Matter March, Saturday, June 24th in Berlin. Expanding our idea from 2016, this year we would also like to curate a program prior to the protest to connect existing initiatives and exchange ideas. Both the march and the program are meant to be the prelude to long term collaborations and building collective structures.
With the slogan „For Us By Us“ we would like to connect existing spaces, resources and contacts to create a stable infrastructure and come together to organize our resistance in the long run.
We would like to invite you to be a part of this process and contribute to our pre-protest program. Lets fill the current gaps in our program! It is our goal to combine our strength and make room for the complex realities/ real complexity in our communities, meaning we as a collective want and have to act intersectional.
Currently we would love to add especially more events for youth and children to the program. We are also looking for self-organized actions of any kind. May it be talks, workshops, a Black_PoC brunch or reading group.
Maybe you have already planned an event between June 1st – June 30th, that is compatible with our idea and could be added to the program? Or maybe you have rooms/ spaces to offer we could use? Let us know!
Possible formats could be
- stage performance
- panels and discussion
- poetry events
- guided city walks
The deadline for participating in the month long programme is the 24st of May. By then we would need to know what kind of event you are planning as well as the date and the location.
We are looking forward to hear from you soon: kontakt(at)blacklivesmatterberlin.de!
