Zo. 10 april: Info-avond over De Karavaan en vertoning van ‘Come Un Uomo Sulla Terra’ (documentary by Riccardo Biadene, Andrea Segre, Dagmawi Yimer. Italy, 2008, 61′, english subtitles). 20uur, donations welcome.
De film portreteert drie Ethiopische migranten die Libië doorkruisten om zo in Italie aan te komen. De film gaat ook over de deals gemaakt tussen Italie en Libië aangaande migratiestop, financiering van detentiecentra, externalisatie van EU-grenzen. The film is a journey of pain and dignity, through which Dagmawi Yimer voices his memories of unthinkable human suffering to denounce what appears to be a tragic political and humanitarian situation . In this respect both Italy and Europe share responsibilities for this situation and should be made accountable for it.

Ma. 11 April, Vrankrijk Infonight, Kitchen Punx voku. 19uur, vegan food, no reservations, donations welcome.
During this info evening we’d like to inform you about the current state and the reopening of the Vrankrijk.

Zo. 17 april Filmavond, 20uur, Naasicaä of the valley of the wind (Hayao Miyazaki, Japan, 1984, animated film, english subtitles)
1000 years after the “Seven Days of Fire”, in which the world was destroyed by excessive industrialisation, the pacifist warrior Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations from destroying themselves and their dying planet. Apart from being a great movie in itself, this film also laid the basis for the Japanese anime Studio Ghibli.

Ma. 18 april: Benefit Voku for the ‘Vrijland Makelaar’ campaign. 19uur, vegan food, no reservations, donations welcome.
In Mei 2011 the new makelaar (real estate agent) Vrijland will be launched. With the catchy slogan ‘Gratis wonen ook voor U’(Free housing for you too) Underneath the slick exterior lies another story….
We have been working on gathering different stories about empty houses in Amsterdam, from criminal speculation, to ridiculous rents to the ubiquitous empty office block and so much more. We are building a website to showcase them like a real real estate agents and have worked out a house style that looks very much like a real makelaar. The idea is to use this as a communications campaign about what is wrong when you let property get before people and as a means to reopen the debate on squatting and the ills of anti-kraak grass roots style. Alongside postering and daring climbing actions our makelaar wants to set up shop on busy market streets, make people laugh and maybe learn a little from them too.
We need a to raise money for posters and billboards. Please come along and eat delicious food in a wonderful atmosphere and support us by filling your stomach and your spirit @ Joe’s Garage. Gourmet menu guaranteed!
