Barricade (ACU) – Strategies for the housing struggle

Sun 2 Feb, 2020 : 17:15 - 20:00

In a context in which access to good and affordable housing is becoming less and less universal-the displacement of social housing, criminalization of squatting, and persecution of migrants being some of the symptoms- sharing tactics and creating a support network are tasks that need to be picked up.

During this conversation, different action groups and individuals fighting for livable housing in different cities in the Netherlands will share their struggles and tactics, and discuss the next steps towards housing for all.

As usual for the Barricade Sundays, we will be open from 4pm with a library full of books and zines, and there will be an anti-foodwaste vegan dinner for donation at 7pm.

The Barricade (ACU)

The Barricade is a volunteer-run collective inspired by raccoons and anarchism.
Every Sunday from 4pm to 11pm we do what we can to oppose this capitalist society we live in by being open as a social space with a public library and an anti-foodwaste kitchen.
Our library has a variety of books and zines on anarchism, feminism and queer theory, marxism, decolonialism, environmentalism, squatting and DIY culture. This collection consists of both classic and contemporary texts in English and Dutch. Becoming a member and borrowing books is free.
We believe that self-education is a crucial element in the struggle for social change and therefore we aim to provide a space for collective learning. We organize discussions, reading groups and workshops that are free and open to anyone interested.
At 7pm we serve a vegan dinner for donation out of what would have been otherwise trash.
By fighting foodwaste we make it possible for people to eat a decent meal without having to pay a fortune, and we support the library activities and other political collectives with the donations we receive.
We welcome anyone who wants to join us, be it for cooking, cleaning the dishes, rescuing food or helping with the library. A good place to start is coming to help us any Sunday at 4pm when we start cooking!
