Fundraiser Dinner for the L’Amassada ZAD!

Thursday September 26th 2019, Fundraiser Dinner for the L’Amassada ZAD! Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

You are invited to what will be a delicious dinner—cooked by a renowned vegan chef and crew—for the L’Amassada ZAD at Joe’s Garage on the evening of September 26. This dinner (other donated) funds will be dedicated to the people of the Free Commune of L’Amassada (Libre commune de l’Amassada) ZAD recently charged with large trespassing court fines.

L’Amassada is located in Southern France, outside Saint Afrique and in the town of Saint-Victor-et-Melvieu. In 2009, the French State began the process of farmland expropriation by bureaucratic means for RTE (Réseau de transport d’électricité)—the infrastructure wing of Electricity of France (EDF)—to build a mega-energy transformer. In 2013, locals reacted by building a protest camp to block the project that officially turned ZAD after the courts ruled in favored RTE in 2017. This struggle has worsened recently, with an order of expulsion handed against the L’Amassada commune in January 2019. This was followed by over 100 police raiding the area in February, which led to the arrest of five people. In July the court fined each of them 650€ each plus judicial administrative fees.

Come join this dinner. Learn about the struggle against energy infrastructure and support some of the land defenders in this area. Likewise, this discussion and fund raiser will be continued the next day at NieuwLand (September 27) with a screening of the documentary about the L’Amassada ZAD titled, Nothing Will Stop Us: ZAD Everywhere (2018). Please join us for both the dinner and documentary film screening!

Benefit Association Togolaise des Expulsés

Monday 26 August 2019, Benefit dinner for the Association Togolaise des Expulsés, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

On the situation of deportees, expelled persons and “candidates for migration” according to the example of Sokodé/Togo. The Association Togolaise des Expulsés (ATE) was founded in 2008 in Sokodé, the second largest city in Togo, by people who had been expelled to Togo from various countries – including Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. The ATE’s commitment is manifested in the form of practical support and mutual assistance for people who find themselves in precarious living conditions after their expulsion and also in raising society’s awareness of issues related to migration and the rights of refugees and migrants.

In recent years, the ATE, founded as a self-organization of expellees, has increasingly focused on the situation of young people who are currently fleeing Togo or migrating. The ETA helps to give a realistic picture of the multiple dangers on migration routes to those who want or need to leave.
Like many African civil society movements, the ATE also speaks out against human rights violations and deadly crimes on migration routes – and against a border regime imposed by European states that allows people to die in the desert and sea and pays money to Libyan militias and some African governments to prevent African people from traveling to Europe at all costs.

ATE is also active in the Alarme Phone Sahara project – a practical initiative of African and European civil society organisations against dangerous and deadly conditions on flight and migration routes through the Sahel and Sahara countries.

Mobilisation No Border Camp 2019

Monday July 29th 2019, Mobilisation No Border Camp 2019 during the Volkseten Vegazulu. 7pm, no reservation.

Last news and updates about the upcoming No Border Camp 2019 [http://no-border.nl/] which takes place from 1st till 4th august 2019 in Wassenaar at Huize Ívicke. The address is Rust en Vreugdlaan 2, 2243AS Wassenaar. The call out in various languages is available through this page. Talks and workshops are now publicly announced.

Restricting migration is a priority for the Dutch government and the EU. The walls of Fortress Europe are rising taller, rescue missions by aid organisations are counteracted, and refugees are locked up and deported. Thousands of people die in the Mediterranean Sea or in the desert, or they are stuck in horrible conditions. Politicians instigate hate against refuguees, while  weapons-companies are in the mean time making big money on militarising borders. Rich Western countries keep fueling the reasons why people flee through unequal trade, weapon exports, causing climate change, and military interventions.

Reason enough to take action. Come to the No Border Camp in the beginning of August, for workshops, meeting people and actions on a extraparliamentary and anti-authoritarian basis. To build bridges to other intersections of struggle, like anti-racism, decolonisation, queer- and trans struggle, climate action, anti-militarisation, and the struggle of migrants themselves for their rights.

The No Border Camp 2019 in the Netherlands will take place from August 1-4. The location will be announced just before the start of the camp due to safety reasons. It will take place in the provice of Zuid-Holland in the Netherlands. Keep an eye on the website or send an email to be updated about the location! If you want to help with the organisation of the camp or just one or two small tasks, please also send us an email! If you want to help us out financially, you can make a donation to the bankaccount that’s on the poster. Everything (both financially and organisation-wise) is  very much appreciated.

Benefit for Devrimci Otonomlar, revolutionary autonomes in Turkey

Thursday June 27th 2019, Benefit for Devrimci Otonomlar, revolutionary autonomes in Turkey. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

“We are a organization that wants to build an anarchist line of struggle in the region against the rising fascist reflexes and policies of the current state in Turkey. We support the idea of setting up local autonomous groups that will expand neighbourhood by neighbourhood in the city we are struggling to organise a continuous practice for our goal.
And our starting area is the stronghold of political islam, the Fatih district. Two days before we wrote this text, racist attacks against Armenians start again with the saying this is just the beginning. The bullying and inhumane approach against the immigrants in the neighbourhood is rising by the day and because the society and even the political trend of the opposition parties is leaning towards a point of anti-immigrants, this situation is taking the form of hate and eventually violence.
Be sure comrades that this is just a small part of whats happening.
To embody our policy against the state and to start a determined struggle we want to open a cultural centre in Fatih.
We think that this cultural centre will decrease the tensions in the society and become a place for our immigrant friends to breath by taking continue steps to solve the problems we mentioned.
Together with current political problems, we want to gain anti-authoritarian experience that will feed our political work with activities such as free education, music, theatre, dance workshops and reading groups.
And on this path with the obligation and lack of Revolutionary Solidarity, we want our comrades who are far away but in fact we are shoulder to shoulder with, to walk with us together.”
