*Queer group Meeting*
A brand new queer (activist) group has started. It meets twice a month, once in North London (at LARC), and once in South London (at the Library House). The group is very new, so discussion about what it should be and do are still ongoing, but there seems to be a lot of enthusiasm to work on race/anti-racism issues, creating a queer bloc/affinity group for demos and actions, and community education (within our own communities and reaching outwards).

We meet as an open collective every tuesday evening from 9pm to discuss use of the space, hear proposals, and if you’re lucky have some hot food and a cuppa!

We usually practice movements, make a rodinha and play live music. We have all we need: good mood, a lot of energy and wilingness to learn. Sessions are free and you are more than welcome to join us!

Pro-Palestine demo: Boycot Marks&Spencer!!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 10, 2009 by cHe0

Yesterday ( 9th of January) the Library House organised a little demo against Marks&Spencr. It was quite succesfull and here are some impressions…boycotmarks&spencer.boycotmarks&spencer

From is birth M&S has been linked inextricably to Zionism. In fact in a book on M&S, Lord Marcus Sieff – long time Chairman of M&S – wrote that one of the fundamental objectives of M&S is to aid the economic development of Israel (Management: The Marks & Spencer Way, Weidenfield & Nicolson, 1990).

M&S supports Israel with approximately $233 million in trade every year (Jerusalem Report, 5 June 2000) .

The JTA reported that “The Israeli ambassador to England recently honored Marks & Spencer for the company’s continued support of Israel.” (JTA, 13 December 2000).

In 1998 Sir Richard Greenbury Marks & Spencer, received the Jubilee Award by the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. This is the highest tribute ever awarded by the “State of Israel” in recognition of those individuals and organizations, that through their investments and trade relationships, have done the most to strengthen the Israeli economy.

For this Friday the 9th, 8pm, we will be showing a selection of short movies from the London Transgender FilmFestival
http://transgenderfilmfestival.co.uk/

This will include:

FAGETTEimmagine2
USA 2008. Dir: Ali Cotterill. 4min. music video
Fagette is a trans-fabulous Sunday in the park. It’s croquet gone gay, drag-tastic cheerleaders, and synchronized dance, all in an Astroturf wonderland.

ARE YOU A GIRL OR WHAT?
AFRICA 2007. Dir : Mathilda Piehl. 30minsimmagine3
In a backyard in the township of Katlehong a group of young lesbian guys let us ask questions about their lives and how they survive in a sexist, homophobic and often violent surrounding. Through adversities and hardship these young South Africans bear an immense amount of hope and courage.

SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN
USA 2005. Dir: Gina Pei Chi 3:00min
Somewhere In Between traces the formation of an Asian girl’s androgynous identity through documenting real life images with first person voice over narration. While the images are showing various public places like churches, playgrounds, washrooms, and clothing stores, the audio is revealing the girl’s experience as being gender bended and her deep concern about the social construction of binary gender roles.

THORN ON YOUR SIDEimmagine1
USA 2007/8. Dir: Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson. 5mins
The San Francisco Trans March is both a protest against the violence and discrimination faced by the trans community and a celebration of their strength and spirit. We asked everybody at the march “How do you define your gender?” You may be surprised at the variety of answers. In memory of Gwen Araujo, Ruby Ordenana, Tony “Delicious” Green, Michelle Eddie Lee, Tyra Hunter and all those whose lives are threatened by homophobia and transphobia.

ONE IN 2000
USA 2006. Dir: Ajae Clearway. 27min
‘One in 2000’ explores intersex lives from a variety of perspectives and diverse voices. It reaches beyond the issues of gender and medical treatment to connect with a wider audience on the topics of family, school, and relationships. This moment in time is an historical crossroads in which doctors around the world are beginning to treat intersex not as a social emergency, but as the complex condition that it is.
