Appearing As Resistance (by Freedom of Movements)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Freedom of Movements is an emerging political group based in Copenhagen composed of immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees, as well as non­migrants. We are a diverse group of people. Different legal statuses, political rights, economic and social situations, as well as cultural backgrounds. Our efforts go to identifying what are the most crucial problems different groups of migrants face and creating collective strategies to respond to these problems together.

We would like to invite you to our first political event/meet-up. The event will consist of workshops facilitated by asylum seekers, refuggees, as well as activist involved in other 'minority' struggles such as the African Empowerment Center. There will be Peoples Kitchen (Folkekøkken) during the day; video screenigs and workshops for kids - a group of migrants have organized different activities for children such painting, dancing capoeira, theatre and much more during the day.
