Join Our Workshop on Fighting Housing Injustice!

Are you concerned about housing insecurity and want to make a difference? Join our workshop on the Bond Precaire Woonvormen (BPW), the Union Against Precarious Housing. BPW stands up for the rights of those living in temporary, precarious, or overpriced housing, helping tenants claim their right to secure and affordable homes.

In this session, you’ll learn how BPW organizes residents into solidarity networks, offering moral, legal, and organizational support. Discover how they mobilize national networks of committed tenants, volunteers, and action groups to fight for housing rights. As a self-help organization, BPW empowers tenants to take action, fostering a sustainable movement for housing security.

We’ll explore real-life examples of how BPW has successfully drawn public and political attention to the issues faced by precarious tenants, through articles, demonstrations, and direct action. Whether you're directly affected or want to support the cause, this workshop provides practical insights and steps to join the fight for housing justice.

Join us and be part of a growing movement dedicated to ensuring housing security for all. Together, we can make a difference!

 

 

 

The formal education system affects us all. Not only are we forced to attend schools growing up, but academic research shapes our governments, our news, and how we view the world around us. As much as many of us want to believe in the promise of institutional education, the sad fact is that our schools and universities are undemocratic and elitist. They perpetuate inequalities instead of giving people the tools to fight them. This world is fucked.

Here at Radical Sunday School, though, we know that another world is possible. Everyone should be able to direct their own learning, to grow together with their communities, and to live as though they’re already free. There are countless examples of movements already putting these ideas into practice. This collective is trying to follow in their footsteps, organizing to explore new ways of learning based on principles of autonomy, mutual aid, and egalitarianism.

This is not intended to be a course that you would have to follow all the way through. Jump in and out whenever you like. Sessions will be held every Sunday at Joe's Garage.

Doors open at 17.30, we start sharp at 18.00!
