WTF is going on in Brazil?

Filed under: Amsterdam — Tags: , — Nica @ 13:06

 

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 5.40.44 PM

” I speak/quote dates of Brazilian independence, abolition of slavery, Proclamation of the Republic and the coup of 1964.

I speak of the racism, transphobia and sexism in the government .

I speak of the vote in the Senate of impeachment and what is happening now.

And we speak of the school occupations.

>>The “advanced” status of European countries is guaranteed by a colonialist and racist structure that still exists, and [we] think it’s important that Europeans know and take conscience of how much people there pay so that people here have a life of comfort.

SNIFFING GLUE (GER)
Playing straight forward 80’s hardcore punk in your face since 2006 they have released multiple records and toured even more.
But as you read this kind of shit everywhere, just come along to one of our shows and get your ass kicked by punk.” -sniffing glue

EFA SUPERTRAMP (UK)
Efa Supertramp is a folk punk singer/songwriter from Wales. Making a name for herself in the underground scene in the UK with her truthful attitude to life and politics. Her songs are angry but uplifting. Efa has been playing gigs since the age of 15 when she started Welsh punk band The Stilletoes. She has since toured all over the UK and Europe, playing in protests, squats, street corners, living rooms, bars and festivals, and has supported punk legends such as The Damned, TV Smith (The Adverts), Viv Albertine (The Slits) and Attila The Stockbroker. After touring Europe last year as a solo artist, experiencing grassroots and DIY projects, Efa was inspired to put on shows and start a label called ‘Afiach’ to release radical Welsh music.

SPANNER (UK)
Looking forward to UK ska punks SPANNER!! Knock out in-yer-face political punky ska from Bristol, England. They almost exclusively play benefit gigs at grassroots / DIY venues.
“Spanner has been mixing politics and pleasure since around 2000, and we aim to still be at it when it’s time for dancing on the ruins of the empire. We’re taking bookings for the after party now! Our sound is a small contribution to the soundtrack to revolution and we hope to inspire both much dancing and more direct action. We play militant, ska’d up punk that’s not just for entertaining “alternative” consumers or being part of the illusion of rebellion. Punk for us has to be more than noise and more than a hairdo. We want punk and punks to be part of a community in opposition and resistance to this murderous system which leaves everything it touches damaged or dead. We know that with our creativity and determination we can make a new world, and punk is about doing it now! We’d also very much like our music to strike fear into the hearts of capitalists, cops, bosses and politicians everywhere… if only they could hear the words!”

BRAINDEAD (DE)
Ska/Dub/Punk/Hardcore from Hamburg, Germany.
Braindead set out to play political Punk/Ska/Dub, musically influenced by Bands such as Operation Ivy, P.A.I.N. and Dub Trio (not too mention all the radical Roots Reggae artists), but also Hardcore bands like F-Minus or Spazz. Being true to the DIY fashion of political Punk, they do most of the work like booking, printing shirts or creating artwork for flyers and records themselves or with help from close friends, and have played every thinkable venue from squatted house basements, action camps, boats, youth centers, festivals, and so on. The band is always happy to play benefit gigs for political causes they support.

SPRANK (NL)

ZEX (CAN)
Punk from Ottawa, Canada. In the few years they have existed the band have already toured extensively around the globe including the United States, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. The Ottawa quartet split the difference between heavy metal guitar action and punk attitude. The band features former Germ Attak member Jo Capitalicide (also of Iron Dogs) on guitar alongside vocalist Gretchen Steel, bassist Gab Sex and drummer Tasha. Can’t wait for their live show!!

JEFFREY LEWIS & LOS BOLTS (US)
Bringing together a nihilistic world view, a self-deprecating sense of introspection and a healthy dollop of absurd humour. Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis leads a double-life, as both a comic book writer/artist and a musician. His band also has a multi-faceted existence, restlessly exploring a stylistic swath from contemplative folk narratives to distortion-fueled garage rock to soundscape abstractions and more. They have toured the world, blowing minds all along the way, can’t wait smile emoticon

BIVAK BOYS (NL)
Homegrown talent from the squatted marshland of Amsterdam!!
“Its a shame that producers leave their beats empty!! Thats not what they are meant for, ya know. Empty houses are occupied and in use, I do not see why it would be so different with beats. Empty is empty, we make no such distinctions.” After a long and arduous search through the city streets we managed to track them down and get them on board. They squat empty beats or “KraakRemixes” and they’re squatters, not rappers. They rap in Dutch and English and you are all allowed to sing a long to the beats that without doubt you will already know. Can’t wait for this one!! Goodnight Copyright!!

CISTEM FAILURE (UK)
Anarcha feminist folk punk queers from all over the place, fighting the cisheteropatriarchy one banjo at a time… members include Momma Swift and Roverrr. “We are a travelling Anarchist feminist queer band. We are involved in different political projects/spaces/struggles and try to combine our words with our actions when we can. We play rowdy political banjo folkpunk. We would like to see more non binary peeps, Transfolk, and female asociated people play music, make zines, take the space in male-dominated music scenes that we all deserve to be part of.”

RATS FROM A SINKING SHIP (UK)
Rapper Lusty’s savvy, often mercilessly funny lyrics make wise observations of bullshit in the news, coupled with Jamie’s chainsaw riffs makes a gripping, searing-hot metal/punk crossover sound that incites the ensuing rebellion that must follow in order to reclaim the world as that of one belonging to individuals and not that of corporations, governments, cult religions, mass ideologies or thinking. Add Tom’s dirty bomb basslines and Rob’s thunderous drum beats, and Rats From a Sinking Ship present bird flickin’, shit kickin’ punk rap.

A talk covering the past, present and future of the movement.
-Abortion rights / Feminism and Antifascism.
A speaker from New York talking about the importance of destigmatizing abortion and how it affects disfranchised communities the most. Moreover, why it is necessary to include feminism in the antifascist struggle. shoutyourabortion.com
-Anarchist Anti-Deportation Group Utrecht.
“The anarchism of the AAGU is given concrete form in action against the detention and exclusion of the victims of modern nationalism, the prisoners of Fort Nederland.” aagu.nl
-On Ukraine
Starting with a short crash-course on Ukrainian politics, this talk will move on to talk about the far-right in Ukraine. More specifically, it intends to use Ukraine as a case study to reveal a long-standing marriage between (neo)liberalism, imperialism and fascism.
Chris is the author of the book ‘Beeld en werkelijkheid achter de informatieoorlog’, where he explores the influence of the West and Russia in Ukraine’s civil war. He shows that a critical stance towards the West does not have to go along with an apology for Russia.
-No Child on the Side.
Little is known about it, but there are over a thousand refugee children with their parents living for years in so-called ‘family locations’ in the Netherlands, under the constant threat of deportation: every week, several families are arrested by the border police just before dawn and transferred to family prison Camp Zeist to be deported from there. Arrest, detention, deportation and disappearance of peers: these are very traumatic experiences for the children and young people in family locations.
“No child to the side!” organizes two demo tours in May to protest together with the refugees for an honest and unconditional Children’s Amnesty Regulation and to stop arrests, detention and deportation.
-Anarchist Vrije Bond.
The Vrije Bond (Free Union) is a group of people who are trying to build a different society: a society without hierarchies, without oppression and without exploitation of humans, animals and the environment; an anarchist society in which we deal with each other on a basis of equality. The members of the Vrije Bond are all working in their own way, in their own city, neighborhood, job or action group, to create such a society. They are doing this through direct action, by organizing discussions, writing articles or supplying information. The Vrije Bond serves as a platform to meet each other, to exchange experiences, to develop theory and strategies, but also to organize activities and to support them.
-“Ang Martir Kong Anak”
(My Martyred Son)
A 13-minute documentary video by AlterMidya (Philippines).
A drought, failed crop, hunger and government neglect pushed farmers to barricade the main highway in Kidapawan. North Cotabato (Philippines) last March 30, 2016. Darwin Sulang (23 years old) and his family joined the protest action with other starving peasant families. Many brought along small children and elderly members of their communities. They demanded the release of 15,000 sacks of rice that was promised to them as calamity aid months ago by the local government. They also asked for farm subsidies to help them recover from their failed crop.
Last April 1, the government sent police and Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) personnel to break up the barricade. While the peasants were negotiating to be allowed to continue their protest, the police charged with clubs and shields. The farmers tried to push the charging police back by throwing stones. The SWAT started firing their automatic rifles. The farmers were forced to retreat to a nearby church compound. The attack left at least two persons dead, more than a hundred injured, and more than 70 arrested for allegedly assaulting the police. Darwin was reported missing after the attack. His family found him dead in a morgue two days after the attack.
The farmers’ protest drew the support of different sectors in the Philippines and in other countries. Unfazed by the brutal dispersal of their fellow farmers, thousands of peasants launch similar actions with the same demands in the region: “Food Not Bullets!”

University of Colour Decolonial School

Filed under: Amsterdam — Tags: , — Nica @ 22:03

—- Welcome to the University of Colour Decolonial School —–

On this event page you will receive updates on the content of the University of Colour Decolonial School. The University of Colour Decolonial School will take place once a week from the first week of March til the first week of June (see schedule below). The school is open for everyone to attend (students and non students). Make sure you do not forget to subscribe for the Waiting list if you aim to participate (we have reached our capacity at the moment, but some places are expected to become available).

For more info click here: http://tinyurl.com/jst3hlw
To subscribe for waiting list click here: http://tinyurl.com/jnalmtp

The program aims to:
o Build a larger and more sustainable activist community
o Provide its members a basic understanding of intersectional decolonization

The program is meant for those who are interested in being part of social movements, activism and want to participate in the ongoing global struggle that aims to decolonize not just the University, but also the imperialist white-supremacist capitalist ableist hetero-patriarchy. We also aim to adapt the program in such a way that it suits people’s specific needs and abilities.

During the cycle you will be able to attend:
o Workshops, lectures and receive a (not mandatory) reading list.
o Chill events that are meant to get to know each other better and learn more about the different forms of oppression.
o Healing events to help you deal with the imperialist white-supremacist capitalist ableist hetero-patriarchy.

The program concludes with a brainstorm session in which project families are formed that are going to work on their own projects. These project families will organize an event or project as a working group for the University of Colour. Groups can organize various events and/or projects, ranging from an occupation or squat to organizing a lecture, starting a blog/website or do a movie screening.

After attending the 3 month program you will receive a University of Colour Decolonial School certificate. This certificate indicates you have been involved with activism, social justice organizing and have gained a basic understanding of (intersectional) decolonization from the University of Colour program. You will be meeting likeminded people and given the chance to develop/find your unique set of skills. Lastly, the program also gives you a chance to connect and meet with a larger network of activist groups and civil society.

Reciklaonica:: 5 godina otpora :: b-day party

Filed under: Music — Tags: , — Nica @ 16:25

[ENG]
These are the times when squats and autonomous spaces all around the world are experiencing a big fall due to governmental opression, strict housing laws, fascist attacks, lower and lower number of people who still have the passion and interest for this form of the struggle – so it’s of a huge importance to participate and support on your local level!

Reciklaonica is a political squat and collective based in Zagreb. Aside from it being a home for dozens of people, dogs and cats, it also gave birth to projects such as a bar/club, rehersal room, tool workshop, bike workshop, Free shop, anarcha infoshop, antifa gym, diy screeen printing lab, a permacultural garden etc. which all function on principals of solidarity without which this (or any) squat/project wouldn’t exist.

On February 11th we’ll be celebrating the 5th year of our existence:) and it wouldn’t be possible without our friends from all around the world who helped in keeping this place alive! *the part when we get all emotional haha*

We want to invite you to participate in Reciklaonica with your heart, with your skills, with your ideas… the same as we want to motivate you to squat&create something in your area.

WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR B-DAY PARTY ON 13TH OF FEBRUARY which can also be a meeting point for some further actions. (and partyhardin’)
See ya!
Reciklaonica collective
