Visiting the Freie ArbeiterInnen Union (FAU) in Berlin

During time spent in Berlin visiting friends and relatives, I decided to contact the Freie ArbeiterInnen Union (FAU) – the German section of the International Workers Association (IWA), of which I am a member of its British section; the Solidarity Federation.

I met in Kreuzberg, a well-established radical area in Berlin, with comrades who have founded the English speaking sub-group initiative within FAU Berlin. This is a group specifically designed to organise workers for whom German is not a first language, and to cater to Berlin’s increasing character as an international city. To this group I gave a gift of English language propaganda paid for by North London Solidarity Federation, including two recent issues of Freedom paper – currently under threat from bankruptcy. At this, I met FAU comrades from Ireland, South Africa and Sweden, all of whom shared a commitment to the building of revolutionary unionism.
