In spring 2017 we went to Lesvos to support directly. In order not to come back with empty hands, Laura made a documentary about what we experienced there. Lesvos: Beautiful Prison takes you to this bizarre, contrasting world, that the European outer border has become: not a safe place for people seeking refuge, but a prison. Mass… Continue reading Still stuck on Lesvos
Hello Nijmegen. Would you like one of these amazing bags? They are made of lifejackets and create job opportunites for refugees and locals on Lesvos. Very good initiative against the waste problem on the island! Write us until Monday 08:00 am which one you’d like to buy, we pick them up at Mosaik Support Center and bring them on our way back to the Netherlands.
Did you avoid the heat during the last couple of days? Well, we didn’t. We were on fire preparing and running a party and dinner in De Grotebroek, the autonomous social center in Nijmegen. Last Saturday witnessed a blend of vegan gastronomic taste and DIY music entertainment with political activism. During eetcafe 50 people enjoyed 3-course meal including… Continue reading The party that rocked our world

Our dear friend Laura is going filmmaking in Greece in april. Ever modest and very essential as a friend and in our justPeople collective, she aims to shed light on the people who are stuck between borders and systems, juggling between basic needs, a family in a country in ruins, and hoping to get to a destination where they can rebuild their lives.
In terms of basic needs and safety, refugees, activists and humanitarian aid workers are still struggling every day in a situation that is still much more urgent than what we can see. Check out the video for a short introduction. For more information and to support, visit the crowdfunding page.

Children and their rights need special protection. In the asylum procedures they are not protected. The asylum procedure in itself is already questionable enough. But that children’s rights are not respected is cruel on another level. They have to live in detention centers that resemble prisons. We protested against this, joining “Geen kind aan de… Continue reading Sign this petition to protect children and their right to stay in the asylum procedure

Dogs!” In the middle of the Forrest.… Continue reading Participating against the violation of human rights in the Netherlands. Geen kind aan de kant. No child to the side.
