International Feminist Camp

You are cordially invited to the International Feminist Camp (Polish: Lewicowy Obóz Feministyczny - LOF), which will take place in Wojtowice (113 km from Wroclaw) between the 2nd and 8th of August 2015.

LOF will take place in Poland for the first time, and was born out of the need to act and support each other, as well as the need to tackle challenges faced today by feminist movements. The camp is being organized by an informal initiative group, comprised of people from several Polish cities. Its goal is to integrate people active in social movements, fighting for feminist alternatives to current forms of exploitation and oppression of people and nature.


LOF will be a space for discussing current feminist strategies of resistance against modern forms of limiting social and political freedoms, resistance against the diminishing of the material foundations of our lives: the access to land, housing or healthcare. It will also be a space for making new contacts and creating social networks and political friendships both on an international and regional level. Currently, in many places where the feminist movement used to be strong, today it is weak. These places need to support one another and make use of the experiences of new feminist movements. Because LOF is being organized in Poland, we want to pay particular attention to the situation of Central and Eastern Europe – the regional social struggles and condition of the feminist movement.

LOF has three principal goals, which will also be the main focus during the debates taking place at the camp:
- the situation of women during neo-liberal crisis (of both state and capital)
- the role of women in new social movements
- the current condition of feminist movements:
*the experiences of radical/left-wing feminist movements
*the development of the identity of radical feminist movements – whether we have common identities/goals
*synthesis and analysis in search of a common strategy of radical/left-wing feminist movements.

In particular LOF will be engage in analyzing collective action:
1) against the growing power of transnational corporations,
2) against war,
3) for the alternatives towards commercialization and privatization of the health care system, and other social provisions

All participants are more than welcome to propose their own topics for the debates/workshops.

If the goals of the camp are close to your engagement in social movements, if you want to take a part in and expand discussions during the camp and share your experience – you should come to us and join LOF!
