Greenhouse Infoshop benefit

greenhouseinfoshopMonday June 15th 2015, Greenhouse Infoshop Project (Philippines) benefit, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

‘Dear Friends, after almost 8 years of doing food not bombs (mobile soup kitchen), films screenings, free workshops and community grassroots organizing, the Greenhouse Infoshop Project is under threat of eviction due to financial crisis for the past months. Greenhouse Infoshop Project is renting a space for 2,000 pesos monthly due to our small income generated, we are in trouble paying the rental of the space this past month. But we cannot afford to stop what we have started.

With the serious problem we are facing, we don’t have any choices right now but to ask for your support once again. We can go squatting but there are limitations concerning water and electricity. We are asking if you could help us sustain a 1 year rental of our space, just to prepare ourselves into transition and push our worthwhile projects. The total rental will be 24,000 Php or $600 good for 1 year, we are asking if you could help us provide the rental for 1 year.

On the bright side we are starting a project called “The Free Bank”; sharing free services resources or good deeds within a social network or community without money involve.

This is the first major challenge to us as an infoshop and pioneers of anti-authoritarian movements here in Southern Luzon particularly in Naga City Philippines. We know that the financial crisis we are facing are effects of crisis of capitalism. We didn’t own any piece of land but we are struggling and fighting to survive, to put forward our projects. I hope you could consider our appeal and hoping for your positive reply.

For autonomy, hope and freedom.

In Solidarity!

Benefit for Feral Crust, autonomous space in Philippines

feralcrust5Monday November 24th 2014, Benefit for Feral Crust, autonomous space in Philippines, Solidarity dinner. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

The Feral Crust collective is currently establishing its own autonomous space in Manila (Philippines) and badly need any financial solidarity to pursue local activities and political struggles. Friend and anarchist community organizer who runs Balay Tuklasan Likhaan Infoshop generously offered his other space (previously vacant and unused) to establish a community-based autonomous center called Feral Crust.
The Feral Crust space is located in Mabato Road Brgy.Ibayo, Tipas Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines in a squatted public road near industrial factories (cement, steel, livestock etc.). About 33 families squat Mabato Road to become a residential area since 1989. Feral Crust came to Mabato road last March 2014.

’’We teach kids based on self-determination and equality. We try to do it together and express such values. We believe that we can learn just as much from daily routine and interaction among people including kids. The school system does not serve the basic interest and needs of the people; it only trains the entire humanity to become future wage slave and cogs of the machine under capitalism.
Activities we usually do with the kids include gardening, preparing vegetarian meals, making art (drawing, stencils, silk- screen printing, craft-making from scraps and other recyclable materials, etc.), film showing, playing games, writing and reading, taking care of plants and animals, storytelling, playing music, listening to their family situation and problems and counseling responsibility and respect.

In our activities with the kids, we also emphasize the importance of responsible waste management and the role of dumpsters in society. We educate them about the significance of recycling and reducing waste to protect the environment. We discuss the different types of materials that can be recycled and encourage them to properly sort and dispose of recyclables. Additionally, we teach them about the significance of choosing the appropriate dumpster size for specific waste disposal needs. Understanding the capacity and limitations of dumpsters helps instill a sense of responsibility in the children, as they learn to make informed decisions about waste disposal and contribute to creating a sustainable future. By incorporating these lessons into our activities, we aim to foster environmental consciousness and encourage eco-friendly behaviors among the kids. […Lees verder]
