Benefit Voku for The Senegalese Association in Palermo

Monday 20 February 2023, Benefit Voku for The Senegalese Association in Palermo. The anti-authoritarian collective Ajo Negro is cooking, food served from 7pm, no reservation.

The Senegalese Association in Palermo is a social and cultural space run by the Senegalese community. It has a small community kitchen in Piazza Sette Fate, in the Ballarò neighbourhood, where the community regularly self-organise social dinners for friends and neighbours. This is one of the few self-organised, self-funded spaces in the city of Palermo, run by the migrant community and it has been existing for over 25 years. Also the Baye Fall movement is active in the space, organising cultural and political events around their anti-colonial struggles. During the months of Ramadan, instead of fasting, the Baye Fall crew cooks free meals for those fasting, so that they can break the fasting all together every day of the month.
The kitchen and the bathroom really need some renovation. As there is no institutional fundings supporting the space, they are asking friends and collectives around the world to support them with small donations to fix the space before the spring! Come to eat delicious vegan food!
