Benefit night for Pinknoise, a self-organized independent media collective (@joe's garage)
Monday April 6th 2015, Benefit night for Pinknoise, a self-organized independent media collective. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm
Pinknoise [https://pinknoise.puscii.nl/] is an open media collective. We mainly focus on doing livestreams of political events, like demonstrations, evictions etc. A recent example is the eviction of the bungehuis, which was occupied by students.
Other examples are the livestreams of the Ubica eviciction, AAGU’s action at Kamp Zeist, and the livestream from the ocupation of the Pier by the Vloek.
We can also provide infrastructure for setting up networks and livestreams. If for example you organize an action camp, we can provide you with equipment and assistance to set up a network and make it possible to report what is going on. We did this for example at noborder camp 2013.
By using free software and our own servers, we give action groups the opportunity to expand the reach of their actions, without having to resort to commercial services. (maybe mention maagdenhuis using youtube for their livestreams -> depending on google for activism is maybe not the best idea)
Since we are an open collective, with not really a fixed format, people are welcome to join in if they think they would fit in. So if you feel affiliated in any way, contact us! We use a lot of equipment, on of our goals is to be as d.i.y as possible, but still, things need to be bought. Sometimes things get taken by cops, or damaged during an event. That is why we are having this benefit.
Volkseten Vegazulu is a people’s kitchen, every monday and thursday, 7pm, vegan food for 4€ or donation. All benefits go for social & political struggles. No reservation.
We’re always looking for cooks. Any help is welcome in the kitchen. Experience not required. Enjoying it is a must. If you want to know which days are still available in the schedule, send an email to joe[at]squat.net and book yourself the night. You can, of course, also participate by rolling up your sleeves and doing the dishes.
