About Lesvos Mutual Aid Network, the network without a website but corporate facebook and instagram… “We are 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 dinner for Ukrainian refugees in Amsterdam

Thursday 19 May 2022, Benefit dinner for Ukrainian refugees in Amsterdam. Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

Ever since Russia instigated an invasion on Ukraine, many war refugees have fled to Western Europe, Amsterdam not being an exception. Together with the university collective called Students 4 Ukraine x AUC, we would like to improve their experience and quality of life in the city, by raising money through this people’s kitchen, with which we would buy/repair bikes and provide them to the refugees, as the city is tightening up its policies regarding public transport for Ukrainians. We will be providing bikes to refugees who live in Java Eiland and Science Park areas for their daily commutes to language courses and work.

Benefit Voku: Calais Squats fundraiser

Monday 11 April 2022, Benefit Voku: Calais Squats fundraiser. Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

Earlier this year, activist groups from several countries planned a squatting action in Calais, France. The action was intended to create safe, autonomous housing for people on the move who suffer regular and extreme state violence and repression. Two buildings were squatted under intense police scrutiny. One squat, a tower block of flats, was evicted, with involvement from high-level governmental officials such as Gérald Darmanin. The eviction was carried out by RAID, the tactical police often responsible for anti-terrorist actions, who arrived on a helicopter.

Dozens of people on the move currently live autonomously in the other squat, the ‘ghost house’ mansion on Rue Frédéric Sauvage. This squat has survived continuing attempts by the state to proceed to an eviction. The money raised from this people’s kitchen will go towards the maintenance of this squat and future squatting actions by the activist housing group in Calais.

Voku benefit for the struggle against the french-italian border + TUSOL (acoustic punk from Romania)

Monday 22nd november 2021, Voku benefit for the struggle against the french-italian border, Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 6pm, no reservation. After the food, TUSOL (acoustic punk from Romania) on the stage.

At the Italian-French border, three self-managed shelters were evicted in seven months. Places where comrades and migrants struggle together against an infamous border.
The border police want to destroy every example of self-management and collective organization. They want to hide and control who they define as “illegal”, they do not tolerate the existence of free spaces in which no one is a guest and everyone can choose how to approach their journey. The repression grows and increases the control on this border which has already killed and which continues to put people’s lives at risk. Destroying these spaces of solidarity, cops and gendarmes and the states that send them, defend the border and make it deadly.
Let’s help the evicted from the shelters to continue the struggle against the border.

Solidarity Voku for Undocumented Migrant Women. No one is illegal!

Monday 15th november 2021, Solidarity Voku for Undocumented Migrant Women. No one is illegal! Volkseten Vegazulu. Food served from 7pm till 9pm, no reservation.

A lot of undocumented women live in different shelters in Amsterdam. Undocumented migrant women make up one of the most vulnerable communities here. Even though a lot of undocumented migrants live here for a long time and are residents of the city of Amsterdam, they are still deprived of basic human rights. They are not allowed to work and can’t live on the allowance provided by the city which is sometimes not enough to cover expenses, especially during the winter where they need to buy warmer clothes. Come and support undocumented migrants in Amsterdam. […Lees verder]
