Barriversary - Barricade's 2nd birthday!
Book-Café The Barricade is celebrating its second birthday!
With what not long ago was a pile of dusty boxes of books, we've made a library with more than two hundred members. On what were discarded veggies ready to become trash, we've tried to model a different society. We've tried to bring political activity back to where it had evaporated from and have kept fighting for a space so needed in times like these.
At the two year mark we find ourselves with still so many things to improve, so many more questions to ask and so many more energies to gather. We'd like to use this day to celebrate what we have managed to do so far and plot together for the work that still needs to be done. Come join us!

Book-Café The Barricade is a volunteer-run public library with a focus on anarchism 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. 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 who is interested.
Barriccoons Kitchen is an anti-food waste collective that tries to make it possible for everybody to eat a decent meal without having to pay a fortune. We believe that what our society considers waste has still so much more to offer and we try our best to feed as many people as possible with our food.We also support raccoons
