🖤A-days in Göttingen 🏴‍☠️
Call to action and invitation to join us
from 26th April til 1st May 2024


Dear anarchist and anti-authoritarian people, dear all,

we know, deep down in our small and big hearts, anarchist ideas can make another world possible. during the A-days we want to celebrate this and take it to the streets and into the minds of everyone. With joy, creativity, expression, fury and sorrow. 

With booths from/about your own projects or collectives, lectures, music, workshops, creative town beautification, inciting discussions, chopping-disco and so on...you, your friends and comrades will be able to experience a couple of marvellous days in Göttingen.

We want to shift the public debate towards a more liberated, more empathetic society full of solidarity and participation. Without authority, without capitalism, without borders and without politicians.

Be it the proclamation of an autonomous zone, squats against vacancy or cuddling against the overall shitshow, come up with something, be creative, band together and stop by! Get to know other sweet beings and connect with each other. It doesn't matter if you'll be able or willing to contribute anything, we'll be glad to see you! 🤗

A lot of things are being organised decentrally by places/premises/groups, but there will be an awareness-team and safer spaces. However, the event will be taking place in a city/town, which means all in all it'll be more of a braver space. This also means we want to be mindful of the people living there as much as our own safety and that or our friends and other participants. We want to inspire people to tag along with our ideas, but we will not just put up with people who are ignorant towards our ideas. Together, let's bring the abundance of possibilities of self-organisation into people's minds.

Who's organising all of this?
We, many different political groups and structures, living projects and communities and autonomous people from inside and around Göttingen, cordially invite you to the A-days in black and gay. ;D There will be maps available on-site.

🫠🥲🤬😵‍💫
Come around, be emotional, take care of one another.

📢🔊
Agitate and advertise the event and invite everyone who's able to do some cool stuff, people you love and like and everyone you think might be fond of such a thing.

💰💶
Bring your big and small cash if you can.
There will be a bunch of donation tins for a bunch of different things. This whole event basically runs on donations.

Accessibility and barriers
If you have any questions about accessibility, please contact us by email and we will see together how we can create accessibility. Some places are barrier-free, other places unfortunately have many barriers. At least one location will be fully wheelchair accessible including toilets and 2 will be partially accessible, children are welcome, there will be safer spaces, affinity group meetings and awareness. Most places will be smoke-free. There will be outdoor and indoor spaces. There will be quiet and noisy places. Some will be free of charge, many will be donation-based. The main language will be spoken German. We are trying to organize a lot of things collectively so that barriers can be broken down together. More soon on this website.

🎶🎭🎬
There will be a pretty varied lineup of events (click here for more information)
If you want to contribute something yourself or you know someone who does, please contact us via email. It kind of goes without saying that the content matter has to be anarchist and anti-authoritarian and you should be feeling comfortable with the topic(s).

🥙🍽️🥗Food
There will be open kitchens, but no full board. Please be prepared to find your own ways to aquire food/provisions/supplies (again, we'll be in a city so there are supermarkets, etc. everywhere) How you sustain yourself is totally up to you, we'd love to see you support our local anarchist spaces though :)

🛏️⛺
There will be people organising places to sleep. Anyone who can offer some space, a bed, a shower, etc and anyone who has definite needs is welcome to contact us via email.
There will also be a map for you to get a broad overview where you can find different participating locations.

🥒🧹🪣
Please partake in shifts (kitchens, awareness, etc).
Ask around what you can do to help if you want to and have a look at the "Participating" page on this website.

Anarchist and anti-authoritarian greetings to the world and we hope to see you soon!
😘🖤
🌍🌎🌏

P.S.: From 1st May onwards there will also be A-days in Leipzig (2h train ride): Click here for more information. So you'll be able to have a 2 week anarchist vacation, sweet huh?! And for anyone dependent on doing wage labour: for the A-days in Göttingen you'll only need to take two work days off for 6 days of fun! 😉

P.P.S.: If you see hurdles or have concerns about coming here, don't hesitate to write us and we'll see what we can do.

EA (Investigating Committee)

Es wird während der A-Tage einen anarchistischen EA geben inkl. Zugang zu Anwält*innen.

 

Der EA ist AB SOFORT erreichbar unter der Nummer 015510274063. Die Nummer ist dafür da anzurufen, wenn du grössere Mengen an Polizei siehst, in Polizeikontrollen oder in die Gesa kommst oder um von der Polizei aus anzurufen. Bitte notiere die Nummer bevor du an Demos gehst und erzähl deinen Kompliz*innen und Freund*innen vom EA, was er macht und wie die Nummer lautet.

 

Falls du vorher Fragen hast schreibe (verschlüsselt) an die A-Tage eMail.

 

❤️‍🔥Gemeinsam gegen Repression❤️‍🔥

Sleeping places

There will be a sleeping place coordination. Locally, people in solidarity will offer you places to sleep free of charge. We will put you in touch with them if you ask by e-mail. If you have any special needs, please let us know. We will try to provide you with what you need, but cannot promise 100% that it will work out.

If you are willing to travel 20 minutes by train and you have a 49 ticket or are traveling for free anyway, please let us know, then there are other options a little further away.

Food

Täglich gibt es 2 gekochte Mahlzeiten vegan und glutenfrei.

Auf 13.30 und auf 19:00 Uhr kocht eine KüfA (=Küche für Alle) an der OM10, wo auch die Essensausgabe stattfindet. Hilfe braucht die KüfA täglich 10:30 Uhr und 16:00 Uhr zum Schnippeln,  sowie 14:00 und 19:30 Uhr zum Abwasch.

Wenn du Allergien oder Unverträglichkeiten hast, schreibe im Vorhinein eine Mail oder komme direkt auf die KüfA zu. Wir freuen uns über Spenden.

Drug consumption

Everyone should feel comfortable!

Therefore, before you drink your first beer, please think about whether you can really handle it responsibly and whether others might feel annoyed or frightened by you.

Let's all together pay attention to whether people are behaving well with others and let's together ask for help from bystanders or the awareness team if people have to feel uncomfortable because of alcoholized or otherwise intoxicated people.

Money

We try to make it possible for you to get by without money through KüfA (kitchen for all) and solidarity projects. However, the KüfA, artists, rooms and other things sometimes cost a bit of money and so we and the local projects are mainly dependent on your donations.

We try to keep everything as free of exchange logic as possible so that you can give what you can and want. However, we cannot guarantee this at all locations.

As there will be many different decentralized donation boxes for all sorts of things, please take your small change with you. The KüfA in particular will be happy to receive a few more banknotes.

You can also use existing maps on the Internet such as dumpstermap.org in order to exchange information about possible container spots where supermarkets throw good food into the trash.

And finally, one more point about criticism & goodwill towards the organizers

The A-Days should be as accessible, participative and experiential as possible for everyone. However, it may well be that our planning capacities will not have been sufficient to consider and think everything through to perfection.

Many different people have invested a lot of time and passion to get this event off the ground and created something completely new. For this, no praise or special treatment will be bought here. But please keep this in mind when criticizing. You are welcome to write feedback via email.

In the end, the A-Days will be what we all make of them. See yourselves in the responsibility of participating in shaping anarchist days, weeks or even years 🙂
