Connecting the Struggles is a laboratory on sharing practices of political action to fight the vicious cycle of homelessness, unemployment and deportation. We are coming together as political activists with different backgrounds to learn from each other, to create an archive and to ideally build up cross-regional solidarity structures.
Many of us are organizing accommodation and offer social support, many fight for a self-organized center for so-called migrants and refugees. All of us have developed varied practices and strategies from our local experiences of everyday struggles and structural obstacles.
Based in Frankfurt, we as Project.Shelter want to connect with likeminded groups like Schlafplatzorga Berlin or Housing For All Hamburg and more. Through connecting these struggles we aim at joining forces to achieve our goals.
