BookBloc Sweatshop

Dear friends of radical action, revolutionary literature, BDS, beautiful book covers, collective liberation, and a free Palestine; Dear enemies of police violence, institutional complicity in genocide, and silencing of the voices of the people,

📚 We ask for your help to realise the Book Bloc 📚

Sunday 7 July, 13:00 - 19:00
Monday 8 July, 17:00 - 22:00
at Roodkapje’s anarchive, Delftseplein 39

Convened by the Book Bloc Brigade, Roodkapje, Spin Collective and the Zilvervisjes, this #bookbloc sweatshop builds shields mimicking huge books. The Brigade continues to improve the shield design and teaches people how to make them, in order to protect and embolden our comrades in their struggle. The book covers are selected from the growing #bookbloc bibliography. These walking bibliographies protect protesters from police brutality while spreading revolutionary resources on the Palestinian struggle. Afterwards, the shields will be distributed to encampments across the Netherlands. The Bookbloc Sweatshop is also a moment to spend time with our comrades, recover from the frontlines, and for those who can’t join the frontlines to contribute to the movement.

The Brigade will prepare some covers. Should you have any suggestion for the bibliography, please write to:
Food to nourish soul and stomach will be served by het Rode Keukentje

No registration, free entrance, drop in any time
Please bring cash to donate for food and materials

Roodkapje is situated in an old anti-squat building without a possibility to create a toilet for wheelchairs. The anarchive is on ground level and directly accessible from the street. Burgertrut restaurant is surrounded by stairs, but we have a ramp that we can attach to the stairs when needed. In regards to COVID, please do not participate if you’re showing symptoms. We will provide facemasks, should people require them to feel safe. We strive to conduct workshops that are fun, accessible, efficient and empowering. Anyone can participate with no prior skills or knowledge.
