Wagon days and Climate Strike – one struggle, one fight!

This declaration of solidarity was published originally on Indymedia. We decided to repost it on our blog, because we see a dire need for more spaces of collective alternative living, climate justice and the end of capitalism.

„Our house is burning!“ – this is how climate activists describe the situation of our planet today. We think so, too! On 20.09, the day of the climate strike, all – ALL – are asked to strike for our climate. We follow this call and solidarize ourselves as Wagon days Berlin with the climate movement.

What’s wrong with marmalade?

This is a text from a collection of texts from the „Women* Squat Athens“ which was squatted in Athens in early 2016 by a changing group of women* from the Anarchist, Queer and Feminist Movement. The text considers the question of “what is political” within the context of squatting.

It may seem cliché, but, as a matter of fact, when we gather at the women space, we actually drink coffee and tea, and eat marmalade. This „women“ atmosphere – cling clang of the cups and spoons, little talks that disturbs the main conversation, laughs – has been critized by some comrades visiting the meeting. They acknowledged that it wasn‘t quite their cup of tea… The problem is that, most of the time, this problematic is not presented as a matter of taste: those critics underline that the atmosphere of our meetings is the sign of a political “unseriousness”.
