Writing Letters to Prisoners [ a black contour of a prison fence in the background on white. On top you there arelight purple and violet paper planes flying over the fence, and the header says ‘ letter writing to prisoners’. On the bottom of the image there are two light violet text fields, ‘ every 4th tuesday of the month, 19.00’ and ‘Anarcho Boekenplek opstand, Beatrijsstraat 12A’

Join us in the Opstand on Tuesday for a nice cup of tea and for writing some letters. People in prison are faced with isolation and disconnection from the rest of the world. From the outside, we can try to break the routine of repression with some colourful letters. Letter writing seems easy but we often don’t take the time to sit down and do it, or we don’t know where to start… So let’s do it together, with solidarity, tea, and cookies.
We will provide letter writing material and a list of addresses, but feel free to bring more!

Writing letters to prisoners happens every 4rd Tuesday of the month at Anarchistische Boekenplek Opstand, Beatrijsstraat 12a Den Haag.

What is “Caliban and The Witch” about? 
“Caliban and the Witch” is a marxist-feminist classic that explores the transition from feudalism to capitalism, a transition that, Federici argues, could only be achieved through the brutal subjugation of women. Moving from medieval peasant revolts through the European witch hunts to the colonisation of America and the transatlantic slave trade, Federici shows that capitalism did not come into existence naturally: it was built on violence. She brings to light that women were often at the forefront of resistance against the new capitalist order, both in Europe and in the colonies, and that capitalism’s birth required the creation of a new kind of patriarchy.
Some of us have already read this book; it is mind blowing and extremely interesting, but also very dense and complex. That is why we want to read it together, to be able to understand it through conversations which each other, and perhaps also to critique it, to be able to formulate our own opinions. What is the connection between witch hunting and capitalism? Where do current patriarchal norms come from, and what purpose do they serve the capitalist powers? We will discuss these questions (and more) while reading this fascinating book.
