The Barricade - Inspired by raccoons and anarchism

Short url:

The Barricade is a volunteer-run public library and cooking crew with a focus on anarchism, anti food waste and leftist politics.

In our permanent collection, we have a variety of materials (books, journals, zines) on feminism, Marxism, decolonialism, environmentalism, veganism, squatting and DIY culture, including classic and contemporary texts in both English and Dutch. Membership and borrowing books is free.

Every Sunday evening we prepare a free meal that can be enjoyed in the ACU bar. Perfectly ripe and beautiful vegetables and fruits are coming from the dumpsters of Utrecht. Donations will be used for the kitchen or other political goals.
