Social Media

For those planning on attending pub night tonight, we have now changed our plans and we are encouraging all of our members to go to the Soli-Demo: Berlin Stands with Charlottesville. It begins at 6pm at Pariser Platz. We will no longer be meeting at Maria & Josef, as originally planned, but we hope you can go to the demo to show your support of those that stood up to hate in Charlottesville this past weekend. ...

Movie Night: 13th

Join us for our August monthly event. This Tuesday, August 1, 2017 from 7:30-9:30pm we’ll be hosting a movie night! The film is 13th. Watch the trailer here:

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation’s prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans.

We will have popcorn and drinks for sale. Feel free to bring more snacks. After the movie, we will have time for discussion.

Healthcare is a Right Solidarity Picnic

This Saturday, July 29th, 2017 from 12-2pm we’re answering the call of Women’s March organizers to host a protest against the Republican’s attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Democrats Abroad Berlin will be having a picnic and sign-making event at Tempelhofer Feld (near the Oderstrasse entrance, see map) in solidarity with Our Lives on the Line marchers across the U.S.A. Bring a sign or come out and make a sign to take pictures with, so that we can post on social media in support and solidarity.

We will also have postcards and a list with the address of all members of Congress for you to write them personally to tell them your true thoughts on how they are handling healthcare!

Feel free to bring food or drinks to share. You can RSVP here to let us know you’re coming, and share the event on Facebook with your friends.
