Info and Benefit night for The Climate Games 2014, Volkseten Vegazulu


Thursday April 24th 2014: Info and Benefit night for The Climate Games 2014, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

On June 14 Climate Games Teams will gather in the western port of Amsterdam to take part in the first ever Climate Games. Playing field is the area of the NUON coal plant at the Hemweg. Teams can score points by planting flags on different parts of the field, and by performing spontaneous and creative actions. Why not dance the tango in front of the gate, or dress up as a polar bear? Be creative..

Because of the climate crisis it's an absolute must to shut down all coal-fired plants in the Netherlands before 2020. The "energy agreement" states that 5 old coal plants need to be shut down. Instead, the next few years 3 huge new build coal plants will be switched on and 2 old coal plants will remain active (of which the one in Amsterdam). Businesses and politicians seem unable to do what's agreed on and what is really needed. Sometimes it actually seems like they are playing off profit and climate against each other...

That is why we as concerned citizens want to join the game and find playful ways to solve this problem. We have the possibility to build enough windmills and solar panels to replace all coal plants. In order to shut them all down, we need to get involved in the game!

This is an open invitation. Not only to environmental organizations, but as well to student groups, football clubs, bridge clubs, you name it. Any individual who feels like playing a game can participate. Gather with your friends, form a team and join us. Want to learn more about the game, the possibilities, the background and tips on how to win? Come to the info evening in Joe's Garage this April 24!

Eenhorn Filmavond presents: A Separation (Asghar Farhadi, 2011) Sunday April 27th 2014, Eenhorn Filmavond presents: A Separation (جدایی نادر از سیمین) Directed by Asghar Farhadi, 2011, 123 minutes, in Persian with English subtitles. Door opens at 8pm, film begins at 9pm.

Nader and Simin argue about living abroad. Simin prefers to live abroad to provide better opportunities for their only daughter, Termeh. However, Nader refuses to go because he thinks he must stay in Iran and take care of his father, who suffers from Alzheimers. However, Simin is determined to get a divorce and leave the country with her daughter.
Tense and narratively complex, formally dense and morally challenging... The provocative plot casts a revealing light on contemporary Iranian society, taking on issues of gender, class, justice and honour as a secular middle-class family in the midst of upheaval winds up in conflict with an impoverished religious one.
A Separation won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012, becoming the first Iranian film to win the award and was nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award, making it the first non-English film in five years to achieve this.

Film night at Joe’s Garage, warm and cozy cinema! Doors open at 8pm, film begins at 9pm, free entrance. You want to play a movie, let us know: joe [at] squat [dot] net

KSU-Oost Vind je het onredelijk dat er met jouw grondrecht op veilig onderdak geen rekening gehouden wordt ? Ben je boos omdat spekulanten van de woningnood profiteren en de overheid maar doet alsof haar neus bloedt?
Ondanks het feit dat in Nederland kraken verboden is, gaat het toch gewoon door. Voor mensen die actief voor het recht op wonen optreden is onderlinge hulp vanzelfsprekend. Gezien de reden om te kraken, namelijk het maatschappelijke probleem woningnood, treden krakers in het algemeen dan ook als een soort bond naar buiten. Bij de voorbereiding van een kraakactie, bij de kraakactie zelf en bij het behouden en onderhouden van een kraakpand is er altijd advies een steun van andere krakers. Mensen gaan je graag en bijna onvoorwaardelijk ter zijde staan, maar het initiatief moet je zelf nemen en de uiteindelijke keuzes moet je zelf maken. In de praktijk houdt dat in dat je zelf een leegstaand huis moet weten te vinden, zelf moet uitzoeken waarom en hoe lang het leegstaat, zelf je woongroep moet samen stellen en zelf uiteindelijk daar moet wonen. Uiteraard kan je op praktische hulp rekenen zolang jezelf een duidelijk plan maakt en de uitvoering daarvan coordineert.

Als deze aanpak je geschikt lijkt om zelf iets aan je eigen woningnood en aan de woningnood in het algemeen te doen, kom dan langs op het kraak spreekuur elke dinsdag in Joe's Garage vanaf 20u

Films From the Frontlines: Bosnia and Herzegovina in Spring and Madrid in Pieces 468570769_295-228x160

Sunday May 4th 2014, Films From the Frontlines: Bosnia and Herzegovina in Spring and Madrid in Pieces. Door opens at 8pm, event begins at 9pm.


Screening and discussion from the media collective Global Uprisings [http://www.globaluprisings.org/] an independent news site and video series dedicated to showing responses to the economic crisis and to authoritarianism from around the world. A voku on May 1st will serve as a benefit for political prisoners in Spain and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Two new Global Uprisings films will premiere at Joe’s Garage: Bosnia and Herzegovina in Spring and Pieces of Madrid.

Bosnia and Herzegovina in Spring
(March 2014/14 min, 40 sec)

This short documentary tells the story of the uprising in Bosnia and Herzegovina that started in early February 2014.

In early February 2014, protests swept across Bosnia and Herzegovina. The protests were started by workers from five factories in northern city of Tuzla: Dita, Polihem, Poliolhem, GUMARA and Konjuh. The factories had been privatized, bankrupted and stripped of assets, leaving the workers with large debts, no salaries, no health care and no benefits.

The protests culminated on February 7, 2014 when several governmental buildings were set on fire in cities across the country, including the presidential building in Sarajevo. Under pressure of protests, four regional governments resigned.

The protests were followed with mass popular assemblies, referred to as plenums, that quickly spread across the country.

Pieces of Madrid
(April 2014/18 min)

This short documentary explores ongoing resistance and self-organization in the midst of the economic and social crisis in Madrid, Spain.

As social conditions continue to deteriorate across the country, people have been turning to the streets and to each other to find for solutions to the crisis. This film tells a story of the massive mobilization that saw millions of people converge on Madrid on March 22nd 2014, the story of the proliferation of social centers, community gardens, self-organized food banks, and the story of large-scale housing occupations by and for families that have been evicted. The film pieces together many of the creative ways that people have been coping with crisis and asks what the future may hold for Spain.

Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema: The Silence (1963) Sunday May 11th 2014, Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema by Jeffrey Babcock: The Silence (Tystnaden). Directed by Ingmar Bergman, 1963, 96 minutes, in Swedish with English subtitles. Door opens at 8pm, film begins at 9pm.

Considered by most to be the final statement of Ingmar Bergman's so-called "loss of faith" trilogy, it is also considered to be one of the most erotic films of Bergman's career. For me it unfolds almost like a sci-fi film, about the lack of community we have these days, and the dark sinister forces that we no longer speak out against. A deep-rooted angst is at the core of the film, a kind of paralysis. But I must say that although that is sincerely my gut response to this film, it can also be interpreted in loads of other ways.

The film has a bare skeleton of a storyline, and none of the events are really explained, which is one of the mysterious beauties of this film. It centers on two women... one more sensual, who has a child.... and and her sister who is more intellectual (Ingrid Thulin). The film follows the eerie events as the three of them are traveling by train to Sweden, but are forced to get off and stay in a unnamed foreign country when one of them falls ill. The city they are in is obscure, and is perhaps in the midst of war or martial law. The hotel they stay in is surreal, and the film opens into a chamber play involving strange sexual encounters and even circus dwarfs. The tension between the two sisters accelerates in pitch until it almost explodes.

The cinematography by Bergman's regular cameraman Sven Nykvist precisely captures the dark eroticism at the core of the film and heightens its sensual impact. In fact at the time when it came out it caused a scandal because some of its confronting sexually explicit scenes. One of Bergman's best films, and also one of his most odd ones. Pure surrealistic dynamite.
