Book-Café The Barricade is celebrating its first birthday!

With what not long ago was a pile of dusty boxes of books, we've made a library with more than two hundred members. On what were discarded veggies ready to become trash, we've tried to model a different society. We've tried to bring political activity back to where it had evaporated from and have kept fighting for a space so needed in times like these.

At the one year mark we find ourselves with still so many things to improve, so many more questions to ask and so many more energies to gather. We'd like to use this weekend to celebrate what we have managed to do so far and plot together for the work that still needs to be done. Come join us!

¡¡A las barricadas!!

We'll finish with the screening of a documentary on Angela Davis.
