Benefit the Moria 35

Thursday April 12th 2018, Benefit the Moria 35, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Soon the Moria 35 trail will begin on Chios! Lesvos Solidarity raises awareness, that in ten days, on 20th April, the trial of the so called Moria 35 will start. “On 18 July 2017, 35 people were arbitrarily arrested during a violent police raid in the “African Section” of Moria camp after a peaceful protest”, the volunteers remember. Still, the policed crashed it using tear gas and arrested 35 people, who were not involved in the following clashed. They highlight: “There seems to be no individual evidence against them. They now risk up to 10 years in prison and could be excluded from the right to international protection. There is evidence of police violence during the arrests, and in the police station.”

Four of the defendants receive assistance from Lesvos Solidarity, including the payment of lawyers and court fees. To support them, you can donate on this fundraiser:

Benefit Dinner Volkseten Vegazulu for Pan-European meeting for practical solidarity

Monday March 5th 2018, Benefit Dinner, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Today’s Voku in Joes Garage is dedicated to the “Pan-European meeting for practical solidarity” that is going to take place in Cologne on the of the 17th and 18th of March, around the day of the prisoner.

Doors open at 7 pm. We will prepare a nice soup, vegan dishes and dessert, play canned music and distribute some information about the practical solidarity weekend in March.

From the invitation for the weekend in March:

In 2017, one comrade from Barcelona was sentenced to seven and a half years of prison in Aachen. She is now in Willich prison.

During our work of mutual solidarity that extended throughout Europe, we quite often realized that there is a common wish for better getting to know each other and to jointly express our solidarity with those affected by repression. This led to the idea to make use of the weekend around the day of the prisoner, on 18th of March 2018, for collective activities in Cologne and Willich.

Herewith we would like to invite you for a day-long discussion with comrades from various radical-left movements in Europe on 17th of March and a rally in front of the prison in Cologne on the 18th. A solidarity concert takes place on the evening of the 17th.

We want to broaden our perspectives across national borders, to oppose Fortress Europe with our radical-left perspective, far away from nationalism and the state. The trial in Aachen showed once more that European countries and their agencies do closely cooperate when prosecution and repression is pursued. On day-to-day social, economic and political levels, we do experience the devastating effects of that pan-European cooperation.

However, this might also lead to solidarity and friendship and the desire for gaining consciousness about the various European realities. We are very much interested in making practical transborder solidarity a matter of fact, by talking and discussing about common and diverging experiences and positions of social struggles, with repression and prison.

Mumia Abu-Jamal Benefit

Thursday February 8th 2018, Mumia Abu-Jamal Benefit, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

New Hearing in Mumia’s Case set for 3/27/2018 – Judge orders New District Attorney to address his request to “find out what happened to the missing Memo by taking action,” including a suggestion that they might depose the former ADA to get the answers.” He noted that he would require a status conference on 2/26/18, to hear details of their efforts. “I do not want to have another hearing in two months, and be in the same place. These questions need to be answered.”

Mumia Abu-Jamal, represented by Sam Spital of the NAACP and Judith Ritter, Professor at Widner, was in court in Philadelphia challenging his criminal conviction. Common Pleas Court judge Leon Tucker opened court with a query to the DA about his order that the prosecution produce testimony regarding a missing letter by former DA Ron Castille. This evidence, or evidence of a similar nature, could be a key to Mumia’s criminal defense appeals being reinstated. […Lees verder]

Benefit for Libertatia squat in Greece. Music with Rebet Guitar

Thursday February 1st 2018, Benefit for Libertatia squat in Greece. Volkseten Vegazulu from 7pm. Music afterwards with Rebet Guitar (Charis Konstantinou).

On 21 January 2018, the fascists attacked the squat Libertatia in the center of Thessaloniki, under the protection of the police after a demo that was called by the Christian fascist groups for the name of Macedonia. The day after, there was a demonstration in the city and 5 people got arrested. All around Greece, there was a call for demonstration against the state and the fascists. It’s not the first time that the police and the fascists work together against the anarchist movement, immigrants, free spaces and queer people. The collective of Libertatia is not giving up and they want to rebuild the social center. This attack is not gonna frighten anybody within the movement. Such an attack makes a stronger movement to fight against the state, the capital, the Christian churches and the fascists.

REBET GUITAR – Rebetiko, the music crossroad between middle east and west from the early 1900’s. Songs about love, joy and sorrow.
A musical sub-culture, a music of the lower classes.
“The womb of rebetiko was the jail and the hash den. It was there that the early rebetes created their songs. They sang in quiet, harsh voices, unforced, one after the other, each singer adding a verse which often bore no relation to the previous verse, and a song often went on for hours. There was no refrain, and the melody was simple and easy.” Ilias Petropoulos
Rebet guitar, focuses on the early rebetiko with one guitar, finger-pick style developed in USA by Giorgos Katsaros (George Curly), Kostas ‘Gus’ Dousias. […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
