Film screening: Ungeren Indefra

On March 1, 2006, the the squat Youth House on Jagtvej 69 was evicted by the police. Subsequently riots broke out in the streets of Copenhagen. The film follows the struggle of the squatters for the last six months, from the inside.

Come and let’s get inspired by the story of Jagtvej 69.

🎪het plek/covid/toegankelijkheid
social anxiety is een ding en veel van ons raken ook snel overprikkeld. Als je wilt komen, een je hebt specifieke benodigdheden, laat het weten! er is iig een ruimte met couches waar je ook kunt zitten. de ingang en de toiletten zijn helaas beperkt toegankelijk voor rolstoelgebruikers (in specifiek zijn het de brandveiligheidsdeuren, die zwaar zijn, en de ingangsdeur welke alleen met een handle naar buiten toe opengaat.)
🌬 Covid: je mag je eigen masker meenemen, anders hebben we ook maskers en zelftests op locatie, maar wees solidair en doe eentje voordat je komt. Er is geen maximum aan mensen, maar afhankelijk van hoeveel er komen gaan we even aanpassen en kijken hoe we het het veiligst kunnen maken!
❕️check in met mensen voor triggerwarnings en persoonlijke grensen, wees geen pannekoek.
Joey gaat je host zijn en die praat engels en nederlands.
**dit evenement is specifiek bedoeld voor mensen die aro
en/of ace zijn of zich afvragen of ze het zouden kunnen zijn
Aces & Aros Café lgbtqiA ❤️ 1st edition
are you aspec (on the aromatic and asexual spectrum) or are you wondering if you are? do you not really understand or have much difficulty or hate towards society’s ideas of normativity of relationships, ask yourself why people believe that love is necessary to have a good life, or why without sex you are presumably gonna ‘miss a lot’ or or or (*insert bullshit bingo statements* )?
we invite you for an evening with cake and garlic bread and tea and couches, but without drugs and alcohol 😎
✅️Feel free to come too to be queer to yourself chilling and reading or whatever.
❌️No pressure for hookups either (looking at you,my aroace friends!)
🔻where: anarcho book spot @opstand.denhaag (beatrijsstraat 12, The Hague)
When: Saturday, 07.05.2022. walk-in from 17.00 **
please pre-register due to covid via instagram dm or email (bookstore stand at riseup dot net)
🎪the place/covid/accessibility
social anxiety is a thing and many of us are easily overstimulated. If you want to come, or you have specific needs, let us know! there is a room with couches where you can also sit. unfortunately the entrance and the toilets have limited access for wheelchair users (specifically it is the fire doors, which are heavy, and the entrance door which only opens outwards with one handle.)
🌬 Covid: you can bring your own mask, otherwise we also have masks and self-tests on location, but show solidarity and do one before you come. There is no maximum number of people, but depending on how many come we will adjust and see how we can make it safest!
❕️check in with people for trigger warnings and personal limits, don’t be a pancake. Joey will be your host and he will speak English and Dutch.
**this event is specifically for people who are aro and/or ace or wondering if they could be

PLEASE help! urgent!

info/callout for support!!!
URGENT! until 16.00  today (wednesday, 20.4.2021)
De Samenscholing – in short
De Samenscholing is not too busy with social media, but they are busy with the neighborhood, self autonomy and DIY. You might follow the Opstand (anarchist bookplace with free cookies and queer people running it always :)P) or Water en Brood (@water.en.brood),the vegan organic restaurant, or you were at the free shop (Weggeefwinkel Bea-nix on FB) to get a small impression of the many things happening there!
After lengthy renovations of the building, which de samenscholers sort of won from a struggle for an alternative-cultural center with the municipality of The Hague, the first events started to happen in 2018, spaces got established, etc.
The Free shop, weekly outside affordable bar evenings, concerts of underground bands, a bookspace with anarchist library and political events, movie screenings, a vegan and organic restaurant, DIY language courses, artist studios, workplace… And always open for more ideas, a space where you can organise an event as well.
Anti-capitalist, and for social profit instead of monetary profit!
What’s happening now:
De Wethouders of the city (Van Asten vor culture and  Bruines for economy) are pushing for the cancellation of the usage contract of the building on the Beatrijsstraat 12 – to gentrify and redevelop it to an ‘economisch verzamelgebouw (‘economische broedplaats’) voor de maakindustrie’, so a building for what they call ‘small businesses’, with rents up to 100€/m2.
And all this in the middle of a small social housing neighborhood, in a space where right now kids play and the neighborhood gets together to share stuff and support each other.
**see links for documents in dutch below**
!!! The urgency: !!!
Next week Thursday (21.4.2022) the municipality will vote on two things: the cancellation of the contract of the users of the Beatrijsstraat 8-12 (Helikopter artist studios and De Samenscholing Vrijplaats) and the Proposal for the redevelopment of the building situated there.
There one can make use of one’s democratic right: ‘inspreken’. (calling by video or coming in person for talking or making a point in their discussions for 3 minutes max.) More details below.
This is the only leverage we still have right now for the neighborhood and the the people and collectives involved and all those who in the future would like to organise cool stuff for free, have a place to try themselves out and not get poor going out etc…

How to inspreken:

you need to speak dutch. (but you actually don’t need to speak, you can also play a song or rant)
You can be there in person or call in via phone or videocall. tell them at the registration.
you need to call +31 70 3533131, or mail and sign up with your last name for the agendapoint O of the Raadsvergadering on 14.02.2022. There’s also a webformulier, you can find it on the bottom of this page:
you have 3 minutes usually (less minutes if more people signed up)
However you do it: make it a point that this is not supposed to happen!
YOU CAN ALSO GIVE YOUR TIME TO SOMEONE ELSE! just sign up and say you give them to marian from the weggeef or anyone else you know that is speaking. 4minutes are shorter than you think 🙂
