29.01.2024 - Berlin’s Palestine Solidarity Movement: A Collective and Long-Term Fight!

We hereby give you an update:

In the past 4 months the movement has grown and we have managed to show great solidarity on the streets of Berlin. Amongst other things we have pushed back the outright ban to protest and fought the IHRA clause for cultural funding.

Nevertheless, due to the racist legislation that is being pushed across the political spectrum, thousands of arrests have taken place in Berlin alone, and many of us are facing serious financial and legal hardship. We remain to be physically assaulted, charged with hate speech and wrongfully framed for police assault.

Within this harsh and unconstitutional climate great solace is found in the amazing individuals and organizations that offer legal advice and support:

50% of this fund goes to the ELSC and 50% to Palästina Kampagne. The organizers of this gofundme and Palästina Kampagne have decided that Palästina Kampagne will work in collaboration with Rote Hilfe to disburse funds directly to people in need of financial support for paying fines. Click here for a full overview of this collaborative effort.

This money is solely used in support of people experiencing police repression in connection with Palestine solidarity in Berlin, and supports the initiatives stated above in:
  • Offering a warm welcome to the movement
  • Offering free legal advice
  • Monitoring all forms of anti-Palestinian racism
  • Taking legal action against repressive laws or policies and defending key elements of the movement such as “from the river to the sea”
  • Offering financial support to people facing hardship as a result of fines for legitimate protest in solidarity with Palestine

This is a collective and long-term fight!

We therefore kindly ask you to consider another donation or perhaps to dedicate the profit of a project to our cause, as has been initiated by:

Only with your help we are hopefully able to support every single individual in need!

In the past days you have witnessed the ongoing oppression against your friends, your neighbors and everybody that is speaking up for freedom of speech. What we see on the streets is both heartbreaking and beautiful as people show an enormous drive to stand up for the people of Palestine and our basic democratic rights to show solidarity.

We have been chased, assaulted and arrested multiple times throughout these days.
The arrests are followed by, - in the best-case scenario - fines, and in the worst-case scenario serious consequences for people's residencies, refugee statuses and jobs.

We clearly stand against this brutality and injustice. We will do everything to fight for our right to exist and to support the people, who like us, face legal and societal consequences in the light of German police and state oppression.
We understand that not everyone is in a position to physically counter these atrocities. Therefore we urge you to show your solidarity in other ways.

With this Gofundme we ask you to donate money to relieve the financial burdens of fines and legal fees of the oppressed and thereby support general freedom of speech in Europe.
This donation will be gathered under our supervision and equally redistributed among the ELSC and Palästina Kampagne (formerly: Nakba75). We will provide proof and receipts.

The ELSC is an Amsterdam-based organization that defends and empowers advocates for Palestinian rights across mainland Europe and the United Kingdom through legal means.

Palästina Kampagne is a campaign fighting for the Palestinian voice and freedom of speech in Germany. Their financial support will manifest in the direct payment of fines to the ones affected by the German state repression.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

From the bottom of our hearts <3
