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. You can, of course, also participate by rolling up your sleeves and doing the dishes.

Movie and Conversation: Together We Defend Our Mother Earth: Documentary on the Commons of Tila, Chiapas, Mexico

Sunday June 3rd 2018, Movie and Conversation: Together We Defend Our Mother Earth: Documentary on the Commons of Tila, Chiapas, Mexico. Door opens at 8pm, event starts at 8:30pm.

The indigenous ch’ol community in the town of Tila in Southern Chiapas, Mexico, live on the the communal lands protected legally as an ‘ejido’ (roughly: Commons). They have their own forms of governance and live in peace with most of their non-indigenous neighbours — except the authorites, who wanted to take over part of the communal lands. Left with no other option, the commoners took action against the ‘bad government’ on their lands and started to build autonomy in line with Zapatista principles and forms of organization. The documentary was made together with the commoners, to give those who are not from there the opportunity to understand the commoners’ experience and their struggle. We will watch the film, get an update on recent developments, and have a ‘conversatorio’, a conversation, about commonality, territory, solidarity, and documentary-making.

International Solidarity Movement Palestine infonight

Thursday 5 April 2018, International Solidarity Movement Palestine infonight, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a Palestinian-coordinated movement committed to resisting the long-entrenched and systematic oppression and dispossession of the Palestinian population, using non-violent, direct-action methods and principles.

ISM aims to support and strengthen the Palestinian popular resistance by being immediately alongside Palestinians in olive groves, on school runs, at demonstrations, within villages being attacked, by houses being demolished or where Palestinians are subject to consistent harassment or attacks from soldiers and settlers as well as numerous other situations.

Briefing on our solidarity work as volunteer in Palestine, we will give insight in how you can support the Palestinians in their daily live and in resisting the illegal occupation of their land, by going there and joining the movement for a short or longer period.

Assuming the USA will actually move it’s embassy to Eastern Jerusalem, 15 may 2018 on the 70th Nakba memorial day, our presence might be more needed then ever before. […Lees verder]

Benefiet voor J20 arrestanten + docu ANTIFA

Monday January 22nd 2018, None are free until we’re all free. Benefiet voor J20 arrestanten + docu ANTIFA. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Film: 9:30pm

Op 20 januari 2017 werd president Trump in Washington ingehuldigd, duizenden mensen gingen de straat op om de feestelijkheden te verstoren. Een Black Block van 600 mensen braken door politie kordons heen en verstoorden de feestelijkheden met directe acties. Nu een jaar later zijn de rechtszaken begonnen tegen de 200 arrestanten van die dag, in totaal word er 600 jaar gevangenisstraf geëist. Omdat wij altijd solidair zijn met mensen in strijd organiseren wij dit bescheiden benefiet om zo een kleine bijdrage te leveren aan de financiële kosten die dit monster proces met zich mee brengt. Komt allen!! Doneer gul!!!

None are free until we’re all free. Defend J20 resistance. http://defendj20resistance.org/

De mensen van Global Uprisings http://www.globaluprisings.org/ hebben speciaal voor de gelegenheid op 20 januari 2018 hun nieuwe documentaire ANTIFA gelanceerd en deze vertonen we dan ook.

Over de docu : ANTIFA
Since the election of Donald Trump, acts of racist violence have proliferated across the United States. Racists and misogynists feel emboldened to express and act on their views. White nationalist groups and resurgent traditional white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan have used Trumps victory to gain new recruits. All that stands in their way are the groups of anarchists and anti-state communists who have taken it upon themselves to prevent fascism from becoming a powerful political force in the United States. This film tells the story of what “Antifa” is and why people are using these tactics to confront racism and fascism in the US today.
Who are the anti-fascists? What motivates them to risk their lives to fight the far right? What is the history of militant anti-fascism and why is it relevant again today? How is anti-fascism connected to a larger political vision that can stop the rise of fascism and offer us visions of a future worth fighting for? Through interviews with anti-fascist organizers, historians, and political theorists in the US and Germany, we explore the broader meaning of this political moment while taking the viewer to the scene of street battles from Washington to Berkeley and Charlottesville.

Dit word georganiseerd door enkele anarchisten i.s.m. de Vrije Bond https://www.vrijebond.org

Benefit voku & info talk: AFA Amsterdam

Monday 13th November 20017, Benefit voku & info talk: AFA Amsterdam. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Three course vegan dinner to raise money for AFA Amsterdam towards ongoing campaign expenses. There will be a short info talk about AFA and upcoming events. Anti Fascist Action (AFA) is an global collective of groups and individuals active in combating fascism in its different forms.

Anti Fascistische Actie (AFA) is een landelijk netwerk van lokale groepen en contacten. AFA werd in 1992 opgericht, naar aanleiding van de groei die georganiseerd extreemrechts toen doormaakte. Sindsdien heeft AFA zich ten doel gesteld racistische en fascistische partijen, groeperingen en tendensen te bestrijden en racistisch en verrechtsend overheidsbeleid aan de kaak te stellen.

Om extreemrechts en verrechtsend overheidsbeleid te bestrijden ondernemen wij actie. Dat doen we bijvoorbeeld in de vorm van een demonstratie, een blokkade, het verspreiden van flyers om mensen te informeren, het plakken van posters en het ondersteunen van andere organisaties.

Om op de hoogte te blijven van de activiteiten van AFA kun je je aanmelden voor onze sympathisantenlijst. Je ontvangt dan onze persberichten, actieaankondigingen en overige mededelingen. Ook kun je ons helpen door deze brochure of ander AFA-materiaal te verspreiden bij jou in de buurt. Dus neem contact met ons op en doe mee.  https://afanl.wordpress.com

Benefit Freedom of Movement

Monday November 6th 2017, Benefit Freedom of Movement. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

The current developments on the EU-borders demonstrate the power of migration that breaks the illusion of Europe as an island of equal rights, civilization, democracy and welfare(state). We support the migrants who come to our borders and welcome them The EU has always pretended to be in control of the border security without degenerating into a Fortress Europe. Given the large numbers of migrants entering ‘irregularly’ today, the EU broke out in panic while portraying migrants as a threat and migration as a crime. The repressive EU-deal like the one with Turkey is not new. Other buffer states such as Morocco, Libya, Mauritania, Senegal have had to sign those deals in the past where migrants, irrespective of flight pattern, are kept outside the EU. Human rights are violated outside the EU in return of a bag of money. The war against immigrants is just more visible now because it is clear that the EU cannot control the migration at its borders. We support migrants breaking through borders and confronting the image of the EU as an tolerant civilization. The EU is pressuring African states to stop migration threatening with stopping development Aid: the Velletta agreements. We say: Open Escape Routes! Stop Deportations! Our African friends are resisting these deals: http://www.allincluded.nl/posts/actie-landgrabbing-office-du-niger-in-mali/

All Included is involved in Afrique-Europe Interact, a partnership between African and European grassroots organizations that support free migration and sustainable development. Contacts are mainly in Western Europe (Mali, Togo, Burkina Faso, Senegal) and North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia). Themes are deportation, freedom of movement, land grabbing, corruption. All Included is also active in Watch the Med http://www.watchthemed.net/) and Alarm Phone (http://alarmphone.org/en/), a 24-hour emergency phone for those who cross the Mediterranean. Undocumented migrants in Amsterdam are where possible supported by All Included.

What’s included?

All Included Amsterdam is a new initiative that fights for freedom of movement and for the right of residence for migrants. In a time when globalization is a fact, migration should be recognized as part of a package deal. It’s All Included. This means: no illegality, no detention for undocumented migrants and no forced evictions.

With the disappearance of national borders, national identity disappears. Everyone becomes global citizen and deserves regardless of origin equal rights and equal opportunities. Therefore also for migrants ‘all included’ rights and obligations.

Allincluded.nl fightsg for an open society through extra-parliamentary action which intervenes in the political climate of assimilation, closeness and fear. Through direct assistance to rejected asylum seekers and other migrants without residence permit, indictments against abuses of current polities are being propagated. We want to contribute to the public debate with alternative visions of migration and globalization based on open borders, solidarity and initiative from the base.
