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.

This Sunday we are going to look at morality from an anarchist perspective. What is “good” or “bad”? And is it holding us back? Together we’ll look at the history of morality and explore some alternatives. Do you still have some internalised hierarchy? Come talk about it! […Lees verder]

Radical Sunday School: Feeling, Shaping and Talking About Desire

Sunday 24 March 2024, Radical Sunday School: Feeling, Shaping and Talking About Desire. From 18:00 till 20:00.
Desire can manifest as a hunger or a longing, it can be a enthusiastic motivation, a dream, a fantasy or something else entirely.
This interactive session wants to explore how we experience desire and how we share those experiences with each other. What does desire feel like, how can we speak about it and what do we want to do with it?
Our conversation will be shaped by whoever shows up and anyone is welcome to join! […Lees verder]

Radical Sunday School: Learning through “World” Travelling – But not the Worlds You Think

Sunday 17 March 2024, Radical Sunday School: Learning through “World” Travelling – But not the Worlds You Think. From 18:00 till 20:00.

Understanding one another is difficult in our polarized, fragmented and complex world. Most people have a hard time engaging, let alone connecting, with those who have other worldviews. Your family who believes all ‘foreigners’ should be deported, colleagues who believe you are too idealistic, or that one particular sort-of friend, but not really, who has a strange obsession with the imminent proletarian revolution, they all, in their own way, seem to be stuck in their own world. You do not get them, they do not get you. In this worldly Sunday session, we will reflect on the issues and complexities arising from such divisions and how we might, against all odds, be able to connect with one another. We will do so using the idea of “world”-travelling by scholar-activist Maria Lugones. We will travel to and between these worlds of experience to better understand one another. Let us travel to other “worlds” together! […Lees verder]

Radical Sunday School: Care as Political Warfare, a group discussion on activist care

Sunday 18 February 2024, Radical Sunday School: Care as Political Warfare, a group discussion on activist care. From 18:00 till 20:00.

Care is an essential part of the work of activists. Political activity without political community risks becoming just another voice on our busy schedules, causing burnout and getting us further away from the creation of an alternative world, based on solidarity instead than on productivity. However, to know how to care (both for us and for others) is not automatic and discussions on the topic rarely happen beyond our affinity group. What does it mean then to care as a community for the community? What are the boundaries of care? When is an extra text the difference between someone dropping out and someone remaining in the movement? In this class, we discuss together what care in our movements is, the shapes it can take and why it is so central to the creation of a real alternative! […Lees verder]
