“Coasts in solidarity – Open borders, open eyes”

    This summer Lovis is sailing from Hamburg to the international marine festival in Brest and Douarnenez (Bretagne/France). We want to use this journey through the north sea and the channel to protest for a solidary europe together with activists from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain and France – against racism, the criminalisation of fleeing and migration and the loss of humanity. The campaign’s title is “Coasts in Solidarity”, with which we are currently networking with plenty of people and groups along the route. We are thrilled by the many ideas for action and events, offers for support and initiatives that rise in different places.

    Our campagne starts at the weekend 29.05. – 01.06.2020 in Hamburg. Throughout this whit weekend the ship is going to be a place among many other places in the city that gives room for the campaing-topics. These are extended by the topics “solidarity city” and “colonial history Hamburg”. We want to network, get into discussions and become active together. Save the date and come join us!

    Following this we are sailing with different groups and various stops to Brest, where we join the maritime festival from 10th to 16th July. After a side trip to Douarnenez in the beginning of August we go on the way back to Germany.
