NO BORDER CAMP Mursko Sredisce, Croatia (30.04. - 1. 05. 2004)
Impressions settled down, so its time for report. Tho whole event was
organized by the following groups: ACT, AFA, ANFEMA, FNB, RAI. During
those two days around 60 people visited camp, some for one day, some for
both days. People who worked in organization came a day earlier to prepare
a camp. We expected rain, but despite our fears, it was nice weather most
of the time. The place was very nice - big meadow near the fish pond, with
little cottage and sunshade. The kitchen was a little bit further, in the
small trellis, so that we can have more space for workshops and'projections.
The first day, 30th of April, there was the big cooking, because we
expected a lot more people to come, so in the end we had some food left.
We planned FNB in the town, but it started to rain, and since it was
afternoon and it wasn’t a lot of people in the town, we gave up the plan.
In the evening there were two lectures with projections - about borders in
general and Schengen regime, and about trafficking of women. After that
there was a big discussion considering organization of the camp, plans for
tomorrow, absence and lack of interest of local people, and some other
problems. I think discussion was positive, questioning A- movement,
opening some problems for the future, but I also think that in the end it
spread out and become repetitive. The second day some people went early in
the morning to pick up bread in the city, and some went to spread out
leaflets inviting people for a round table later that day. Around noon
there was a Food not bombs in a town, with juggling, but only few people
showed up, which was pretty disappointing. When we got back in a camp,
there was a lot of local people eating, drinking and having fun,
celebrating the 1st of May. Since we planned to make a workshop about the
topic of immigrants and asylum seekers, we asked those people to join in,
but they preferred to party, so most of them went away, and just a small
group stayed and listened. Workshop was great despite of that.
In the town began round table in 6 pm. It was 17 of us, including guests.
Nobody from local community came, which was again - disappointing.
Nevertheless, discussion was useful and interesting. Since Slovenia
entered the EU, we discussed about issue of EU. In the evening the final
party begun and it lasted till the small hours. The next morning we packed
stuff in the van and went home tired.
On the meeting after the camp, we concluded that it all went great in
organization, considering the number of people involved in it, the means
we managed to collect, and amount of work we did. This was very good and
useful experience for the next camp, especially because it was the first
No-border camp in Croatia.

Anarcho-groups from all over the ex-Yugoslavia are organizing meeting of
A-groups from territory of ex-Yugoslavia in Zelenkovac (near Mrkonjic in
Bosnia), in the beginning of July, to discuss questions and situations
considering A-movement in ex-Yugoslavia. It’s the second time this meeting
is organizing. First time it was in a year 2000, and since then a
situation changed, so we see a need for a new meeting. For now there is a
web site in plan, and benefit gigs all over. More details later.
