Last night w2eu and JOG hosted a welcome party in the selforganized space PIKPA to welcome and exchange with the refugees staying there. Over the last three year this became a PIKPA – w2eu – JOG Tradition.
The musicians Leon, Leo and Max traveled from Berlin and Istanbul to be part of the JOURNEY BACK TO THE BORDER and managed again for everybody to forget their sorrows for a few hours by singing and dancing.
There was good connection between all the group’s (w2eu, JOG and cristian peacemakers —)and the refugee’s and specially the children. Together with them we played, painted and in the night we all dance together. After we had some Music we had an open Mike for everyone to contribute. One of the Syrian boy’s, maybe 12 years old, made hip-hop music about his country, his Journey through Turkey and Greece. He also sang also about being a 12 year old boy living with his parents and all the problems, for example putting the stereo too loud or not cleaning his own room.
