Uprising in Blankenburg (near Oldenburg)

Last weekend the nolager actiondays have taken place in Blankenburg. Today refugees of the camp have started an unlimited boycott of the food. in particular they demand that they can prepare their food themselves. about 200 refugees are involved. a meeting with the chief of the camp has already taken place. and there were some confrontations with the police (including a teargas-attack against one woman).

The refugees have announced to continue the protests until the situation has improved. It is clear that solidarity is needed in many ways. Spontanius visits at the lager are highly welcomed by the refugees. Please look out for further informations.
