Update about Finnish antibordercamp

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 refugee question, 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 evening.

All in all we expect a few dozen Finnish participators and maybe 10 from Russia. Interest in other countries has been small.
