Benefit voku & acoustic night for Mutfak soli kitchen w/ Serpent (be), Branding (be) and Kopfleuchten (de)

20160912_Mutfak_benefitMonday September 12th 2016, Benefit voku & acoustic night for Mutfak soli kitchen w/ Serpent (be), Branding (be) and Kopfleuchten (de). Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Gig at 8:30 sharp!!

Mutfak is a migrant solidarity kitchen in Tarlabaşı, Istanbul. It is not like any other kitchen. It has neither cooks nor customers. Here, everybody is a cook and all the food is shared. It belongs to the neighborhood and everyone is welcome. Local markets, shops, organizations, farmer’s cooperatives and all sorts of collectives contribute to the kitchen with vege tables, cereals, oils and other ingredients that they offer. All contributors bring something to put into the pots, stir them and land a hand to whatever is needed. Here neither money nor credit cards are valid, but solidarity and collaboration are. This is a place of sharing our food, labor, ideas, stories and daily lives. The kitchen is not solely about eating. Those who are willing to, can share their knowledge, abilities and experiences with others through workshops. For what comes in handy for one, might also be a tool for the others. To start with, there will be Turkish and English language courses, legal counselling for immigrants, activities for children and craft courses open to everyone’s contribution. This kitchen serves as a locus of solidarity and sharing against all sorts of borders that tear us apart. In these days they are not cooking so much anymore – but are still invested in creating solidary bonds in our neighborhood which has been shaped by migration since a long time. Their current project takes them around Turkey cooking at antimilitary camps. All proceeds from the event will go to help with their equipment and fuel expenses.

Solidarity with the struggle of the political prisoners in Turkey!

Monday March 28th 2016, Solidarity with the struggle of the political prisoners in Turkey! Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

The solidarity committees, active in Europe (thus also in The Netherlands) have the aim to :
– Raising the solidarity with the political prisoners in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, to be their voice.
– Providing financial support
– Standing in solidarity with their families
– Struggling against all kinds of treatment, not complying with human dignity.

In Turkey and Northern Kurdistan are more than 10.000 politival prisoners. Most of them from PKK, others from revolutionary parties like MLKP, TKP/ML, DHKP/C and MKP. A minority of the political prisoners is accused with commitment to other organisations.

Daily misery in Turkish prisons

All the torture and murder related cases filed against prison administrations end in favor of the same. Arbitrary prohibition of visitors, letters and publications. Isolation terror, physical violence, frequent violation of various rights. Violation through many different methods against the right to use other languages than Turkish speaking communication and writing.

Arbitrary implementations to hinder medical treatment.
Bad conditions of heating, nutrition. Expensiveness of their vital needs which are only allowed
to be bought from the prison canteens.
Transport difficulties of families to visit their relatives in prison.
Most of the prisoners are put in prisons in cities far away from their family houses.

Reasons enough for development the united struggle with all democratic organisations in order
to stand shoulder to shoulder with revolutionary and patriotic prisoners in different countries
of the world, to convey their outcry and calls to the masses and to build up a broad solidarity
in practice.

The Voice of the Political Prisoners in Turkey publishes the bulletin “Free Dreams Post”. The bulletin includes letters, news, poems and articles sent from prisons.

You can reach The Voice of the Political Prisoners in Turkey by sending an E-mail to: dayanismakomites [at] hotmail [dot] com

Let us increase the solidarity with the political prisoners!

Kobanê is not alone! Solidarity dinner

Thursday November 20th 2014: Kobanê is not alone! Solidarity dinner. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

On September 16, 2014, the Kurdish-dominated, Syrian town of Kobanê was attacked by ISIS. After weeks of fierce resistance, the Kurdish fighters of the YPG/YPJ (People’s/Women’s Defence Forces) continued to hold major parts of the city, while the advance of ISIS finally appeared to have been stopped. During their advance however, ISIS forced more than 200,000 people to flee their homes, pushing them across the border into the South of Turkey. Often they could leave with little more than what they could carry with their own hands and they now have to live under poor conditions in refugee camps. Your donations, in return for a delicious meal, will go directly to the refugees in Suruç, the Turkish border town, where tens of thousands of Syrians have found shelter and are in dire need of simply everything. Thank you for your solidarity! […Lees verder]
