01.Aug.02 - There has been problems in the camp
organising, so it has been decided to
organise only a weekend camp,
from 9th to 11th of August.
The program will include working groups
/discussions on European Noborder-network,
asylum right in Finland, Schengen Information
System and registration of people, Chechen
detention centres in Finland, anti-deportation
actions and networking in Finland. Introductions
to working groups will be published in
a booklet before camp. If people are
interested to organise other working groups
that would be great.
There will be two concerts-rallies in the
center of Imatra, friday and saturday evening.
These include speeches and music, at least
3 Russian groups will be invited to play
from Moscow and Volgograd.
Food is planned to cost 3 euros a day for
westerners and sleeping place in school
2 euros. For people from East both will be free.
Indoor program will take place in
the same school.
There will be a common transport with
a feasible price from Helsinki
friday evening, which will return in sunday
All in all we expect a few dozen Finnish
participators and maybe 10 from Russia.
Interest in other countries has been small.
