Benefit for Lesvos Mutual Aid Network

Monday 27 September 2021, Benefit for Lesvos Mutual Aid Network, Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 7pm till 9pm, no reservation.

We are a network of comrades and friends active on the Greek island of Lesvos, with ties to collectives and movements that span the globe. We work to build relationships with people on the island, abolishing dominant norms/hierarchies and the socially constructed boundaries between our communities.

As a part of the broader anti-authoritarian movement, we condemn any and all fascist, sexist and racist behavior. We function through our assemblies, where we discuss topics, collectively take decisions and plan actions. We created an environment based on mutual respect where everyone can take part in equal terms, each according to their ability, each according to their needs. Our actions can vary depending on the needs we encounter and the dynamics of the group. We cooperate only with other self-organized structures, like “Women in Solidarity House”, “No Border Kitchen”, “Binio Squat” and other individuals that are active on the ground.

We as anarchists believe in solidarity that comes from the base and stand side by side with people in need, regardless of whether they come from another country, their age, class, ability, gender, the color of their skin or their sexuality. Here on Lesvos, we participate in multiple initiatives on the ground, all grounded in principles of antiracism, anti-authoritarianism, self-organization and mutual aid, each tackling different aspects of this common struggle.

Radar benefit voku

Monday 20 September 2021, Radar benefit, Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 7pm till 9pm, no reservation.

Radar an agenda free of commercial interest.
Created by a community of groups announcing their own events, where the dominant power doesn’t decide if it’s worth a mention.
A tool we build together, to organise, socialise, educate.
A tool designed not to track its users, but break from the ‘facebook-like’ gated communities and to promote open sharing.
Radar exists for more than 20 years, since the very begining of Squat!net. Cities like Berlin, Zurich and Amsterdam were the first ones to join. The network never stopped expending.
Today in Berlin, Kontrapolis is displaying events originally published on Radar. Other collectives, spaces around Europe saw the same opportunity, for instance Koch Areal in Zurich, Disgaraca in Lisbon, Espace Autogéré in Lausanne, Nattsvart Verkstad in Stockholm, the Barricade in Utrecht.
Today in Amsterdam, various groups are making themselves visible on Radar. Not everybody has been swallowed by corporate facebook and twitter. We can only encourage you to make your collectives, spaces visible on Radar, even more if you are outside the Netherlands. We’re eager to know what you’re doing through a network like Radar. And if you are near by, come along and support Radar on 7 september at the Molli and 20 september at Joe’s Garage. […Lees verder]

Benefiet voor Solidariteitsnetwerk Vloerwerk na razzia

Monday 13 September 2021, Benefiet voor Solidariteitsnetwerk Vloerwerk na razzia, Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 7pm till 9pm, no reservation.

Vloerwerk voerde actie voor de Chicken Bar toen we massaal opgepakt werden in een razzia. We eisten uitbetalen van achterstallig loon. Politie en baas high-fiveden achteraf. Vloerwerk komt terug, sneller dan je denkt, maar we hebben nu je solidariteit nodig! We hebben flinke kosten, onder andere omdat één van ons vanwege de razzia gedeporteerd is. Kom langs en steun ons! We koken voor je, houden een praatje en mogelijk hebben we een optreden. De gedeporteerde werker komt aan het woord over hoe hij in actie is gekomen en hoe hij alles meemaakte… en heeft een boodschap voor de achterblijvers.

Benefit for Solidarity Network Vloerwerk after mass arrest

Vloerwerk took action against the Chicken Bar and we were arrested in huge numbers. We demanded payment of back wages. Police got a high five from the boss. Vloerwerk is coming back, faster than you think, but we need your solidarity now! We have considerable costs, partly because one of us was deported following the raid. Come along and support us! We will cook for you, have a chat and possibly have a performance. The deported worker will speak about how he came into action and how he experienced everything and has a message for those left behind.

You might be using services provided by Puscii without being aware of it. An active squat scene also means using, supporting and maintaining on the long term an initiative like Puscii, https://www.puscii.nl/.
“Puscii is the radical tech collective that used to run Utrecht’s first public internet workspace in the Ubica squat. Since our retreat to the virtual realms, we run a server to provide web hosting, email, mailinglists, streaming, etc. to anarchists groups, freaks, artists and other sorts of people like us. We do our best to keep our data safe from the prying eyes and ears of state and capital, using cryptography whenever possible. Alas, servers ain’t cheap, so our little techno safe haven is quite a costly affair”.

Benefit for Progetto 20K, refugee support group in Ventimiglia

Monday 5 and monday 19 july 2021, benefit for Progetto 20K, refugee support group in Ventimiglia, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Progetto 20K is a group of people whose aim is to bring solidarity and support to migrants who become stuck in the territory of Ventimiglia due to the national and European migration policies. The main objective of the group is to support the freedom of movement for all people and to be active so that rights are obtained and guaranteed. The project called Progetto20k started in June 2016 monitoring the border and informing migrants about the rights they hold, services they can benefit from in the Italian territory, information about the situation at the French-Italian borders and tips about the trip they are willing to embark. Every day at the French-Italian border hundreds of people are rejected by the French police and sent back to Italy, without allowing them to apply for international protection in the transalpine country. People stopped in France, mainly in the city of Menton, but also in the French territory, who do not have valid documents for expatriation, are taken by the French police corps to the Paf (Police Aux Frontières) office in Ponte San Luigi, at the so-called high border: here they are detained for several hours, the time to identify them and notify them of the “refus d’entrée”, a document declaring the person ineligible on French territory. These documents are often falsifies, changing the dates of birth so that even unaccompanied minors who would have the right to be taken into care in the country where they are located can be “legally” refused entry.The main place where we carry out part of our activities in the city of Ventimiglia is at the Gianchette park, where the evening meal distributions are made. We provide a generator so that people can charge their own phones and power banks, and we guarantee internet access. We also distribute information material on the border, the various European states, services dedicated to asylum seekers, etc… First aid is also provided given the large number of people who are injured and bruised on a daily basis, mainly due to the long journey on foot across the Balkan route. Moreover, through mobile info-point activities, we directly inform people at the border and down in the city so that they can have all the necessary information about their rights, the journey they intend to make and the safest, most dignified, protected and effective way to do so; we directly support the people we meet every day through the collection and distribution of clothing, blankets, basic necessities and hygiene kits. The aim of these activities is to provide people in transit with the tools they need to be able to continue their journey autonomously, creating paths of solidarity that allow them to build common practices and imaginations, beyond any border.
