Radical Sunday School: Fighting housing injustice with the BPW

Sunday 26 May 2024, Radical Sunday School: Fighting housing injustice with the BPW. From 17:30 till 20:00.Join Our Workshop on Fighting Housing Injustice!

Are you concerned about housing insecurity and want to make a difference? Join our workshop on the Bond Precaire Woonvormen (BPW), the Union Against Precarious Housing. BPW stands up for the rights of those living in temporary, precarious, or overpriced housing, helping tenants claim their right to secure and affordable homes.

In this session, you’ll learn how BPW organizes residents into solidarity networks, offering moral, legal, and organizational support. Discover how they mobilize national networks of committed tenants, volunteers, and action groups to fight for housing rights. As a self-help organization, BPW empowers tenants to take action, fostering a sustainable movement for housing security.

We’ll explore real-life examples of how BPW has successfully drawn public and political attention to the issues faced by precarious tenants, through articles, demonstrations, and direct action. Whether you’re directly affected or want to support the cause, this workshop provides practical insights and steps to join the fight for housing justice.

Join us and be part of a growing movement dedicated to ensuring housing security for all. Together, we can make a difference!

Radical Sunday School: Burnt Out? Health and Illness Under Post-Fordism

Sunday 12 May 2024, Radical Sunday School: Burnt Out? Health and Illness Under Post-Fordism. From 18:00 till 20:00.After the Second World War, the dominant mode of the organisation of economic production was Fordist, meaning that workers were employed in large factories on permanent contracts mainly performing carefully determined physical labour that did not require much creativity. However, during the 1970s, a shift occurred in this mode of production and the new era is often referred to as post-Fordist. This means that nowadays, workers are more likely to be employed on fixed-term contracts, working several part-time jobs rather than one full-time one, and performing more emotional, intellectual, or creative labour. The use of the term burnout emerged together with post-Fordism and it became a very popular buzzword. We often use it to describe any negative feelings we have that are related to work. But what does this term actually mean? How accurately does it describe our lived experiences? How can we regain control over our perspective on health, illness, and work?

Proxy Cafe – Smash the firewall: digital defense for the misfits

Wednesday 24 April 2024 from 18:00 to 22:00, Proxy Cafe – Smash the firewall: digital defense for the misfits

Do you sense that whisper of paranoia lingering in the air?
Well, we’ve got your back. We’re going to share some hard-earned lessons about staying safe and secure in the digital world – aimed at people in squats and involved in radical movements.
We won’t be diving deep into technical details, but rather covering all the essentials: like passwords, data security, browsing habits, smartphone usage, and metadata. Most importantly, we’ll discuss what it means to stay anonymous and understand potential threats models.
The content is based on a presentation that’s been touring squats and radical spaces in Italy, put together by the folks at the _TO* hacklab.
You can check out the original slides here, in italian: https://facciamo.cisti.org/
