Screw the Smalltalk VOKU for No Border Kitchen Lesvos

Monday 12 February 2024, Screw the Smalltalk VOKU for No Border Kitchen Lesvos. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

Our friends at No Border Kitchen Lesvos need our support! With cold weather, ever-continuing pushbacks and little support, we need to stand in solidarity more than ever.

“No Border Kitchen Lesvos is a self-organised group of independent individuals who maintain a solidarity structure on the Greek Island of Lesvos. The main purpose of the collective is to support travellers who cannot progress with their journey due to European migratory policies. Through a praxis based on mutual aid and solidarity, we take a stand against border policies and the suffering they are causing.

Alongside providing basic needs, we are trying to offer a viable alternative to the way travellers are treated by mainstream NGO’s, governments, and local authorities, which is often characterised by condescension, coupled with a dehumanising and infantilising attitude. We also monitor and publish information about the ever-changing situation on Lesvos, to put the situation back into focus and to be able to maintain a flexible and responsive organisational structure.”

Alongside serving food, we will also play a game called screw the smalltalk, in which we doodle together. Bring a pen and paper if you want to participate!

Lesvos Mutual Aid & Solidarity Network Soli Brunch on the Steve Bikoplein

Sunday 7 May 2023, Lesvos Mutual Aid & Solidarity Network Soli Brunch. Event will take place on the Steve Bikoplein, from 14:00 to 17:00. Come along to eat something, support people in Lesvos, meet us and play ping-pong, basket ball, play chess… In case of bad weather, event will move inside Joe’s Garage.

Lesvos Mutual Aid & Solidarity Network, “a network of comrades and friends active on the Greek island of Lesvos, with ties to collectives and movements that span the globe. We work to build relationships with people on the island, abolishing dominant norms/hierarchies and the socially constructed boundaries between our communities.
As a part of the broader anti-authoritarian movement, we condemn any and all fascist, sexist and racist behavior. We function through our assemblies, where we discuss topics, collectively take decisions and plan actions. We created an environment based on mutual respect where everyone can take part in equal terms, each according to their ability, each according to their needs. Our actions can vary depending on the needs we encounter and the dynamics of the group. We cooperate only with other self-organized structures, like “Women in Solidarity House”, “No Border Kitchen”, “Binio Squat” and other individuals that are active on the ground.
We as anarchists believe in solidarity that comes from the base and stand side by side with people in need, regardless of whether they come from another country, their age, class, ability, gender, the color of their skin or their sexuality. Here on Lesvos, we participate in multiple initiatives on the ground, all grounded in principles of antiracism, anti-authoritarianism, self-organization and mutual aid, each tackling different aspects of this common struggle.”

Benefit for No Border Kitchen Lesvos

Thursday 2nd and Monday 6th February 2023, Benefit for No Border Kitchen Lesvos. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

Two benefit diners for shipping cost to supply No Border Kitchen with winter clothes to distribute to refugees stuck on Lesvos. The situation on Lesvos in the Greek archipelago is getting worse and worse. It has being criminalized to help people, so we still try to do what we can. For instance to send them winter clothes.
At the moment there are a lot of refuges trying to cross from Turkey to Lesvos. A lot of them are being pushed back by Frontex and the Hellenic coast guard. The prime minister of Greece Mitsotakis from the right-populist party Neo Demokratia, is denying it’s hapening and saying “these rumors are anti Greek propaganda made by the Turkish state. The push backs are very violent where the rubber boats full migrants are being pierced and the motor gets taken and then pushed back in Turkish territorial waters. The ones actually do make it and set foot on European land are then faced a lot of repression and by bureaucratic measures are forced to be stuck on Lesvos. To help these people is being more and more criminalized and you can now up to face two years in prison for saving someone from drawning, with the charge of human trafficking.
One of the things NBK (No Border Kitchen) is still able to do, is providing people with food and clothing. These benefit events are to raise money to ship the winter clothes to Lesvos. So people that are suck there don’t have to suffer by the cold as well.

STOP PUSH BACKS. FUCK FRONTEX. NO BORDERS
