We will try to arrange as much solidarity accommodation as possible for those who register in advance until November 16th (please bring sleeping bags and mattresses). Please contact penn.platz@notroika.org and see the registration form at www Blockupy-frankfurt.org. We also prepared a list of affordable hostels and hotels.

Translation

Common Languages and Translation

Given that the Action Conference is an European event language is an issue. We will ensure that all plenary sessions are translated from English to German and vice versa. Since this is a self organized event we kindly ask everybody to think about the language issue for the various workshops. We will help wherever possible so that English and German is provided everywhere. For other languages, we ask for support and self-responsible organization from inside the groups.
Anyway please let us know your translation needs in advance (with your registration), so that we can help to organize whisper translation.
People who volunteer for translating please let us know via e-mail at peters@attac.de (which language, email address/phone number, time slots).

Travel expenses / Travel funds

We have allocated limited funds to support travel expenses for people coming from outside of Germany.

Not all appliers can be refunded.
