Striving for Autonomy! the Barricade 3rd anniversary

A promising event organized by The Barricade taking place at ACU, Voorstraat 71 in Utrecht on Sunday 1st December. The Barricade is a “volunteer-run collective inspired by raccoons and anarchism“, hosting a weekly sunday event at ACU.

The Barricade will be celebrating 3 years anniversary, Striving for Autonomy! and has already announced a full day of events, from vegan brunch to music, exhibition, a book presentation “The Barricade ABC” and various workshops, discussions such as “Reflection Tables on People’s Kitchens and Political Struggle”, “DIY: A collective toolbox against the supermarkets”, “Social Centers as basis for Counter-power”.

Reflection Tables on People’s Kitchens and Political Struggle https://squ.at/r/7gxy

A big part of what we’ve been doing for the past years, is hosting the anti-food waste dinner on Sunday evening. For us, providing people with a meal made from trash for free or donation is a political statement to address the problem of food waste and the importance of collective cooking and eating. We are not the only ones doing this, there are a lot of VoKus around in the Netherlands who organise meals or events out of the same political principles. We would therefore like to host reflection tables in the afternoon during Barriversary, to share experiences and start a reflection about the importance of food and collective cooking/eating.

Info Night on the New Squatting Law

Wet of Geen Wet
Kranken gaat door!
Oppose the Proposal – Info Night on the New Squatting Amendment

Come to Joe’s Garage on 23rd September to eat a vegan meal and learn about the new squatting law and how it will affect squatting in Amsterdam and the Netherlands.

As you might have heard, some bastards politicians are scheming to change the squatting law, allowing them to pursue criminal eviction within 3 days by changing the legal procedures. This new law is called the Wet Handhaving Kraakverbod.

This is yet another attempt to protect the interests of rich and corrupt property owners at the expense of those fighting for fair housing rights for all. The law further criminalises squatters and making it more difficult for them to defend themselves in a court of law.

In 2010, the state tried to completely eradicate squatting by making it illegal. Now, a decade later, they still have to come up with pathetic ways to make our lives more difficult, because we are still here!
We did not let them win back then, we will show them we still won’t give up now!
Wet of geen wet..

Stay informed! Follow updates on this law proposal (and get united to resist it):

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.

Joe’s Garage is always looking for cooks. Any help is welcome in the kitchen. Experience not required. Enjoying it is a must. If you want to know which days are still available in the schedule, send an email to joe [at] lists [dot] squat [dot] net and book yourself the night. You can, of course, also participate by rolling up your sleeves and doing the dishes.

About Enough=Enough

IT’S CODE RED FOR GRONINGEN AND THE CLIMATE! Gas must stay in the ground and all the earthquake damage needs to be compensated. But the NAM, Shell and Exxon keep on pumping. And the government is allowing this to happen.

THAT IS WHY WE ARE DRAWING A LINE: from the city to the countryside, from Groningen and beyond, we are joining forces around Groningen’s liberation day on the 28th of August. With the first mass action of civil disobedience in Groningen we are sending out a powerful signal: leave the gas in the ground! Everyone can contribute, experience is not required.

Together with people from Groningen, Code Rood is also organising an ACTION CAMP IN GRONINGEN from 24 to 31 August. Here, we will offer a wide programme of workshops, trainings and open discussions about gas extraction and a fossil free world. And in the evenings there’ll be a campfire and music. You can stay at the camp overnight, or drop by for a day visit.

Volkseten Vegazulu is a people’s kitchen, every monday and thursday, all year long. We are remaining closed if no one is volunteering to cook. Keep an eye on this radar page to make sure we are open. Door opens at 7pm. Vegan food for 4€ or donation. All benefits go for social & political struggles. No reservation.

Have you ever considered cooking at Joe’s Garage with your friends? We’re always looking for cooks. Any help is welcome in the kitchen. Experience not required. Enjoying it is a must. If you want to know which days are still available in the schedule, send an email to joe [at] squat [dot] net and book yourself the night.
