Friday April 12th 2013: Contra Info solidarity event with anarchist comrades in Greek prisons at Joe’s Garage, 7pm.
In the context of an everyday struggle against the existent, and aiming at the diffusion of factual solidarity with anarchist prisoners in the Greek dungeons, members of Contra Info [http://contrainfo.espiv.net/] translation counter-information network will carry out a series of events in various European cities, spreading information on cases of imprisoned comrades.
We want to make these gatherings an opportunity to strengthen the antagonist infrastructure of counter-information, to extend and multiply the solidarity gestures with our brothers and sisters behind bars, and to promote direct action and subversive praxis.
On Friday, April 12th, 2013, we meet at Joe’s Garage in Amsterdam. There will be a collective vegan kitchen at 7pm and at around 8pm we’ll start the talking. We are looking forward to your presence and invite you to share your ideas so as to find a common perspective towards the destruction of all prisons and the system that maintains them.
Stay tuned for upcoming events in other European cities.
SOLIDARITY WITH ANARCHIST PRISONERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD!
Sunday, 15th of April, 8pm Vanishing of the bees. Little bee. Big story.
Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.
Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.
Benefiet voku voor de Huurdersvereniging Oost op donderdag 26 januari 2012 vanaf 19u. Infoavond zondag 29 januari 2012 vanaf 20u.
Er staat een prijs op uw hoofd!
Afgelopen 1 oktober zijn de huurprijsregels veranderd door minister Donner. Hierdoor kunnen verhuurders grof geld verdienen als ze huurders die nu minder dan 650 euro betalen weten weg te pesten. Dit bevestigde ook Thijs Reuten, de portefeuillehouder wonen van Oost in het Parool van afgelopen 26 november “Alarm over huurmarkt”. Uit onderzoek van het stadsdeel bleek dat 10.000 van de goedkoopste woningen in Oost zouden verdwijnen. De kans op een betaalbare particuliere huurwoning zou “praktisch nihil” worden.
Wilt u voorkomen dat u hier de dupe van wordt? Kom dan naar onze informatie-bijeenkomst:

Wo./We. 08 Jun. 2011: Squatting, part of the social capital that everyone agrees that is needed in society or oppositional movement? A debate. 20uur, free entrance.
It seems that squatting has a dual face. One face is that it represents things that many people left and right find valuable. These are mainstream goals such as self-help, participation, creativity, support for vulnerable people, conservation of neighborhoods, preservation of social housing. The second face is that of an oppositional movement. The dual face leads to tensions and confusion. The debate will be started off by short presentations by researchers/activists from the SQuatting Europe Kollective (SQEK). One presentation will cover the tensions and opportunities present in the Spanish crisis and movement scene, one will be a critique on the idea that squatting was a precursor of neo-liberalism and one presentation will take us into re-generations/ regeneration of self. Also the link between art(ists) and squatting will be discussed and the continuities between the sixties/seventies and now. http://www.acme-journal.org/vol9/SQEKeng2010.pdf
In self-proclaimed non-hierarchical and anti-authoritarian social movements, tremendous hierarchy and authority exist but are hidden beneath the surface of internal debate and movement subcultures. For anyone in the squatters movement in Amsterdam, such tensions are obvious but often not systematically examined. This academic presentation explores this particular aspect of the social world of the Amsterdam squatters movement and will be followed by a debate and discussion.
To celebrate May 1st, Joe’s Garage will present a debate, “Revolt against Oppression? Revolt against Alienation?.” This debate will feature five invited speakers who are active in the following campaigns or have been instrumental in the organizing of the following actions 1) the Schoonmakers Campaign 2) Nederland Bekent Kleur 3) the Occupation of the Iranian Embassy 4) Universitaire Activisten 5) the Squatting Action on the Ringdijk ,which was the first time an undocumented person openly squatted a house and interacted with the press as a squatter.
Fri 27.04.2007 – “Every Turkish man is born, so they say, a soldier. Fortunately, there are those who refuse to be one, even though Turkey does not recognize the right to conscientious objection. This event sets out to discuss the current situation of conscientious objection movement in Turkey from a historical and socio-political perspective.
After a short introduction about militarism in Turkey, two antimilitarists who have been actively involved in the movement, will talk about the Turkish military structure, the conscription and legal procedure concerning the objectors, the development of the movement since the 1990s, as well as the representation of the refusers in the media. After briefly comparing the Turkish case to those of the Israeli, Spanish and Latin American ones, we would like to discuss strategies for supporting the conscientious objectors from abroad. The evening will finish with a video screening of recent actions and an open debate.”
