Past events

4 – 7 July, 2024 | LEA offsite workshop in Leipzig

18 – 21 April, 2024 | LEA offsite workshop in Berlin
Given the current events, the global resurgence of antisemitism, even within parts of the left, and our own ongoing discussion, we began our meeting with a tour of the New Synagogue Berlin – Centrum Judaicum. Until Saturday evening, we critically engaged with communal self-governance in theory, practice, and history (M. Bookchin, Global Modules/P.M., Marinaleda/Andalusia, Red Vienna) and worked on applications today. On Sunday, befriended comrades presented artistic designs, through which we discussed suitable left-wing visual languages and design principles. Finally, we discussed how to onboard new group members, the communication culture we cultivate within the group, and which topics and areas of action we want to focus on next.

On Friday we started with a city tour through Babelsberg – many thanks to the Rotes Nowawes history workshop for the interesting insights into the history of the city. This time the focus was on the topic of strategy – we discussed various strategies and tactics of political action, the situation of the left and possible scope for action in the current environment. A focus was also on the “Turn off the tap for Tesla” alliance, which we co-founded in June 2023, and the further course of action. On Saturday we continued working on our position papers and discussed the topics of the state and antisemitism. On Sunday we focused on practical aspects, including our website, social media strategies, the process of having new members join and reaching out to like-minded left-wing groups for cooperations.

On Friday evening the topic of the Ukraine war was discussed again.
On Saturday, we took on the topics of anti-racism/colonialism and feminism/queer feminism to develop a joint basis for our position papers. The conclusion on Sunday was discussions about next steps, forms of action and networking.
