Changing the Game

Workshops, discussions & talks towards a society based on freedom and solidarity
26 & 27 Feb 2022

The yearly 2.Dh5 festival is coming back to Amsterdam for its sixteenth edition on February 26th & 27th 2022.

The 2.Dh5 festival is an annual festival for the exchange of radical ideas, strategies and practices by grassroots campaigns, collective projects and direct action campaigns in the Netherlands and beyond. In previous editions, this has been done through collective analyses of the current and historical context, through looking at real alternatives and political practices, and through a collective (re) discovering of strategies / tactics relevant to our current terrain of struggle.

In February 2022, the festival again hosts different organizations, campaigns, action groups, activists & collectives which are rooted and active in:

feminism, queer liberation, anti-racism, anti-facism, de-colonialism, anti-militarism, international solidarity, climate / ecology, labor struggles, disability justice migration / no-border, internet freedom / privacy, right to city / anti-gentrification,

and all the intersections in between.

If you also have the feeling that the game is rigged, come and join hundreds of other radicals e want to strengthen each other, to learn from each other, and to work collectively towards freedom and liberation for all.

If you also have the feeling that the game is rigged, come and join hundreds of other world changers and radicals at 2.Dh5 2022 – Changing the Game.

Grass roots & from the bottom and to the left!
