Monday May 20th 2013: Volkseten Vegazulu, Benefit Mobilization against Monsanto, 19:00 pm.

They own 75% of the broccoli, paprika and tomato in Europe. 99% of the soy grown in Argentina is Roundup Ready from Monsanto. In The Netherlands Monsanto owns 2 mayor vegetable seed companies: De Ruiter and Seminis. They force farmers to buy their seeds and their Roundup pesticide year after year, by taking over the seed market. [...Lees verder]
Monday May 13th 2013, Volkseten Vegazulu, Indigenous Movement Benefit, 7pm.
Indigenous peoples continue to lose their lands, their rights and their resources. Indigenous peoples make up a third of the rural poor and have higher mortality and child mortality rates than any other group. The UN Declaration on Indigenous Peoples’ Rights has finally got the consensus it deserves, but their rights are still far from being recognized at national and local levels.

Friday May 10th 2013, Info night: Soura! The ongoing Egyptian revolution and the role of women in the revolution. Info night by Rebelact (the Amsterdam Rebel Clowns). 7pm food, 8pm infonight, free entrance
Since November 19th Tahrir Square has again been occupied and in some major Egyptian cities rebellion and revolution are part of ‘everyday life’. Amsterdam Rebel Clowns visited the country three times. With support of People’s Kitchen Vegazula and other organisations they organised several workshops and presentations, but more important: connected with people who resist and are in a permanent revolution.
This evening will focus on the Egyption Revolution, how the revolution continues and the role of women in the revolution. You’ll hear stories and see videos and pictures about the revolution during the last half year. What kind of groups play a role in this permanent revolution? What does the Egyptian situation make inspiring? What are the ‘shortages’ in this revolution? Why revolution in Egypt? (and what are the differences with the conditions in the Netherlands).
We’re glad, next to a few introductions by Amsterdam rebel clowns, Maro (activist and rebel clown from Egypt) will explain about what’s happening in Egypt and the role of women in the revolution. It took 3 months before the Dutch state finally gave her a visa; we’re glad and proud she joins! [...Lees verder]
