Also see: Call for Support: Serbia from 11/16 on

„We from No Border Kitchen Lesvos (NBK) are going to need people joining us on the island in October, November and December. After holiday season, with the start of the new semester for many people and with the approaching winter we will need helping hands from end of October. Additionally we got an unpleasant visit from the cops today. According to them our Social Center will be evicted in 5 days. This would make the 4th eviction this year that we have to face.

At the moment we (still) have two main projects. One is cooking for the people who refuse to stay in Moria camp and prefer to sleep rough in the forest instead. The other one is our social center . Everyday a lot of people visit us there to hang out, talk, eat and meet each other. Of course thats not all…we also stand with the people protesting on a weekly basis in Lesvos against the inhuman conditions in Moria camp and for freedom of movement.

NBK is a political project that rejects the border regime enforced by the governments of the European Union. We are a mixed group of so called refugees and people with European papers. We work on Lesvos because we believe that Fortress Europe and its borders must be destroyed. We believe in unconditional freedom of movement for all. We are an open structure: anyone is welcome to join as long as they agree to our basic anti-authoritarian positions and non-hierarchical form of organization. We are a vegan kitchen, but offer people the possibility to cook their own food. We are individuals and affinity groups who use private donations to support each other. There is no organization behind us. NBK is not here as a group of “volunteers” to fulfill a role of humanitarian charity, nor to “look after” refugees in a paternalistic manner supposedly passive refugees.

NBK is not only about providing food for the people seeking refuge, but also about respecting each other as individuals. Each traveler has his or her own unique aspirations, desires and set of circumstances that brought them to undertake their journey. In our self-organized structure all people regardless of gender, nation and religion are welcome.

If you are think of joining us don’t hesitate but contact us! We recommend to stay for a minimum of two weeks but are especially happy about people who can stay for a little bit longer than that. For up to date information, check our blog and our accounts on facebook and twitter. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us on our Info-Phone or mailadress.

If you cannot come yourself, you can support us in many other ways! If you want to support us financially to cover our daily costs you can donate to

Call for Support: Serbia from 11/16 on

„The situation in Serbia is getting worse every day and as winter approaches the need increases. At the moment more than seven thousand migrants are stuck in Serbia from which more than one thousand just in Belgrade, without basic human necessities being covered such as a roof, sanitary amenities, proper nutrition and above all, they are being treated on a daily basis as inferiors.

We are an independent group with a strong political focus who`s been active in Belgrade since the beginning of this year. Our specific support changes along with the situation and the different needs but we have regular tasks which help us reach our goals. We bring Chai twice a day to one of the main parks where migrants spend their time, which as the weather gets colder is greatly welcomed and at the same time is a great opportunity to get in touch with the immediate situation. As the circumstances requires it, there are other targeted humanitarian actions –sometimes- with the help of different organization.

We investigate and write about the current situation and publish it manly in two canals:

We need people from November on here in Belgrade and everyone who shares our believes is welcomed! We stand for same rights for everybody, no matter gender, place of birth or religion. We believe in non-hierarchal self-organized structures and fight for freedom of movement and settlement for all. We reject how migrants are presented in the media, as a homogeneous group of people and as voiceless subjects.

We are happy to inform you personally about the situation previously upon your arrival

Den Sterbenden an unseren Grenzen: Gespräch und Vernissage

Freunde aus Hannover haben zusammen mit Künstler*innen und Geflüchteten ein multimediales Projekt erschaffen, das auf das Sterben an unseren Grenzen* aufmerksam machen will:
Für Donnerstag, den 13. Oktober, 18.00 Uhr, laden sie gemeinsam mit Geflüchteten zur Vernissage ins Café 24Grad auf dem Engelbosteler Damm.

Die Ausstellung wird ab Dezember auf Wanderschaft durch Deutschland gehen.
Sie möchte dabei für Initiativen werben, die den Betroffenen helfen, darunter auch das Mobile Info Team for refugees in Greece (wir berichteten).

* Seit 2014 sind laut Angaben des UNHCR über 10.000 Menschen bei dem Versuch gestorben, Europa zu erreichen.
