On Saturday the 3rd of February there will be an Antifa conference in the OCCII in Amsterdam. The conference program includes discussions, presentations, workshops and trainings.
With the revival of the extreme right on the streets and in parliament, the political actions by the extreme right and antifascist counter mobilisations, it is time to have a meet up. The conference is accessible for both experienced and unexperienced antifascists. The aim is to exchange information, to learn from each other and to work together to build a strong antifascist movement.
The program of the conference will discuss the practice of the ‘Laat Ze Niet Lopen’ concept, how to effectively work in an affinity group and what we can do about parliamentary groups like the PVV and Forum voor Democratie. We will also be asking ourselves if the actions we take still work and what we can improve.
The conference will start at 10:00 in the OCCII, Amstelveenseweg 134 in Amsterdam. You can find the programme of the conference below:
Journalistst, photographs and film recordings
Journalists are not welcome at the conference. It is also not allowed to take photographs or film people. AFA Nederland will take some photographs for the report; all visible faces on the pictures will be deleted. If you notice any journalists inside or see anyone taking photographs or filming, please notify the people at the door.
Food and drink
There will be lunch and dinner provided. All the food is vegan, so that everyone can join. Breakfast should be taken care of yourself. Please do not consume alcohol until dinner.
Organising a conference costs money: travel costs for the speakers, renting chairs, printing the posters, flyers, and this booklet. There is no entry fee for this conference, but there will be donation jars standing around. If you can, please donate some money so we can cover the costs of the conference.
Some of the presentations and discussions will be in Dutch, some will be in English. If you need someone to translate, please announce this at the start of the presentation or workshop. You could of course also arrange someone to translate beforehand.
