Gradually leaving our summer break behind, a new season of the Barricade has reached us. Hoping to return to our practice of collectivising the labor that nurtures us all, we unfortunately still find ourselves in the midst of regulations and separation. Having to work with the current corona measures and taking health risks in mind, we concluded that going back to our regular Sunday practice is still not possible nor a responsible step to take.
We do want to ‘open’ again, even though what that ‘opening’ might look like, is something we have decide on step by step. For now we concluded the following: we will start again to organise events, and in this way ‘opening’ our new Barricade season. We will stick to the outdoors, and will create spaces where we can meet each other again, where our political ideologies can be shared, while also being mindful about our health and safety. We hope to meet you all soon again – a las barricadas!

Among all the uncertainty of these times yesterday we created once more a space to distribute freely food, zines, clothes and much more, a space to be safely together and sing songs. Sing and talk together and not pretend that things are fine, but feeling that just because things are not fine we need to do what we can to resist and keep creating such spaces.
Thanks to Your Local Pirates for the music and the alegre rebeldia.
And thanks to the Weggeefwinkel Utrecht for joining us and bringing their free shop to our market!
We hope to be able to organise more stuff in the coming weeks, check the Telegram channel for more info.
A las barricadas!
