Women's meeting

Female magic & female power

Happy women’s day! This video is from the last Women’s Day Out that we organize. Female empowerment, getting together and uniting is what we believe in!

We reflected on the Feminine Sacred before. We want to share it here with you again, toghether with warm invitation to come and participate in our meetings! Just send us an email or connect on Facebook.
The women’s meeting is now known as the ‘sacred’ space and moment in which all women who sympathize with the immigration cause are welcome.
Without even mentioning the ancient concepts related to the Sacred Feminine, the event itself has strong characters of exaltation and unity for the present women.

Ultimately, we found out that women are not that much in public or going out, because they face constantly male oppression, discrimination and disempowerment. Therefore, we offer the Day Out as a safe space where women can come, express themselves, cook together, have nice talks, dance and enjoy a peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

We have been organizing Women’s Day Out roughly every two months, and it has reached women from different groups and living spaces all over Nijmegen, offering literally a Day Out off their normal daily lives. It is now known as a frequent encounter of females and in each edition more and more girls, kids, women and elders come together and celebrate their feminine nature in a safe and open place. In this sense, it’s not silly to compare the way these women gather with the ancient rituals to celebrate the Feminine Sacred.

From Heumensoord to Lesvos: support activism documentary project!

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.

How do you make a demonstration a safe place? Anti racism must be the base of it!

Update on the demonstration “Nijmegen against hate” today: How can you let someone speak at a demonstration against hate who preaches hate in the rest of thes time? At this demonstration, nazis were walking around. And a Pegida guy was speaking. After his doubtable words, he was walking off with other nazis. This is not… Continue reading How do you make a demonstration a safe place? Anti racism must be the base of it!

Video: what does Power to the Pigeon look like?

Going for a community of learners, going for fun, empowerment and social change!

Power to the Pigeon

We got a nice video to share, thanks to all participants and Basta!

We believe that one of the best ways to learn a language is while doing something else in a cozy and playful atmosphere. And not just doing something, but doing things that enable use to live a more self-determined and autonomous life. How about choosing topics that are important to us and our communities?

Human stories

This video is great. It is great, because it lets the people speak. It takes time to develop another view on the “refugee crisis”.
As you know, justPeople values the human-to-human approach very much. We believe it is so very important to listen to each other. Let this movie do this to take you very close to people in Greece, January 2016.
