21-10-2018: Introduction to anarchism – a talk at The Barricade, Utrecht

Anarchism at the Barricade
An introductory talk about basic anarchist ideas and concepts.

Anarchism can mean all kinds of things to all kinds of people. But what does it mean to anarchists themselves?
What are the basic ideas that most, if not all, anarchists hold in common? What is it that anarchists object to in present society, what is so wrong with it?
What kind of society do anarchists aim for? And how do anarchists think we can go from here to there, from present society to freedom for all?

In this Barricade meeting, Peter Storm, anarchist writer, musician and activist, will try to introduce basic anarchist concepts, ideas, goals and methods.

He will talk for quite a while, after which there is time for questions, discussion and meet’n’greet.

10-11-2018: Anarchist Bookfair Amsterdam

The Anarchist Bookfair continues for a second edition! After a great success last year at the anniversary of the Anarchist Library Bollox, we will continue spreading books, zines, clothes, buttons, publishers, distros, workshops, films, talks, vegan food and an evening program filled with live music.

We are doing this to build and anarchist movement that can resist the violence of capital and the state. In a time of growing right-wing sentiment it is important to focus on building anarchist infrastructures for an autonomous and militant movement. Anarchist book fairs are an important part of this. They are the perfect place to meet new people and discuss new ideas, to exchange new texts, action and propaganda materials.

This year the bookfair will take place at the Dokhuis, plantage doklaan 8, 1018CM Amsterdam. We will start at 12:00 and continue through dinner and into the evening. There will be a vegan dinner and evening program.

Protest tegen anti-abortus bijeenkomst in Tilburg!

Vandaag hebben een aantal feministen, antifascisten en anarchisten geprotesteerd tegen een anti-abortusbijeenkomst in Tilburg. Deze bijeenkomst werd georganiseerd door de christenfundamentalisten van Schreeuw om Leven die abortus willen verbieden. Dit was een van de bijeenkomsten in een reeks ter voorbereiding voor hun landelijke demonstratie tegen abortus op 8 december in Den Haag. Door met een spandoek bij de deur te gaan staan en door flyers uit te delen aan degenen die naar binnen gingen is kenbaar gemaakt dat hun anti-abortus standpunt niet welkom is in Tilburg!

Stop de afbraak van vrouwenrechten, voor het recht op abortus. Voor het zelfbeschikkingsrecht, baas in eigen buik!

De tekst van de flyer die we uitdeelden is hieronder te lezen:
