Garden, Tea and Biscuits (3-10 March)

==Tuesday 3rd 7.30pm==
*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).

==Tuesday 3rd 8pm==
*Library House Collective Meeting*
We meet as an open collective every tuesday evening from 8pm to discuss use of the space, hear proposals, and if we’re lucky have some hot food and a cuppa!

==Wednesday 4th 6pm==
*Cafe Marie + Cinema Libre*
As usual, this wednesday 6pm, there will be some hot drinks and hot food on donation. Then at about 8pm, movies about recent political struggles by Cinema Libre. This week will be dedicated to the G20 and the different campaigns against it!

==Thursday 5th 7-9pm==
We are a group of people sharing and learning some capoeira. We want to have fun while finding our roots The space is rather small but it is great fun as you need to be really aware of your surroundings. 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!

==Friday 6th 11am-1pm==
Kundalini Yoga Sessions on donation. Bring your own yoga mat and blanket if you can.

==Friday 6th 8pm==
*Queer Cinema Night: UNVEILED* unveiled
The educated Fariba Tabrizi flies from Teheran to Germany expecting to have asylum, since she is persecuted in Iran due to her lesbian relationship with her beloved Shirin. However, her application is denied by the authorities and Fariba has to return to her home country. When her recent acquaintance Siamak, who is grieving the death of his brother, commits suicide, Fariba assumes his identity and status of political refugee and is sent to a refugee camp in a German village. Fariba finds an illegal work in a cabbage factory and she has many difficulties for not having bath with the other male workers. She becomes close to her colleague Anne and they fall in love for each other. However, prejudice and her illegal condition jeopardize her exile in Germany. (Dir. Angelina Maccarone)

==Sunday 8th 12noon==
*Gardening Team Meeting*
This is a call out for anyone who’s interested in getting involved in the Library House community garden! March is coming and we are looking for as much hands as possible to create a great and beautiful garden! So if you are interested, come to our first LibHou Gardening Brilliant Team meeting – LGBT (yes some of us are queer, and yes some of us like to do stupid puns!).
Also, if you have any knowledge/skills on alternative energy, grey water system, and the whole permaculture idea (or just wish to learn about it) you’re more than welcome to join us!

==Sunday 8th 5pm==
*Open Day/Tea Party*
Come to our Tea party on Sunday the 8th of March at 5pm. Bring your own food/cakes and share with everyone! This will just be a social, so that we can meet, you can see the space, and maybe meet neighbours you haven’t met yet!

  1. A *constructively* critical question for you guys: the very best social centres i’ve visited and participated in have been ones that forge alliances and undertake campaigns with the local working class community in which they’re based. it seems that the Library House could be a great asset to building radicalism in the relatively deprived area that it is based. Have you guys thought about how you can reach out to your local area and work with them on concerns and issues?

    Centres like the Vortex (Stoke Newington) and George’s X (Glasgow) were really successful and popular precisely because they did this, and they built a lasting memory in their local areas through the struggles they engaged in alongside other locals. The Vortex campaign against Starbucks was not only successful but also built recognition for the centre and helped create a sense of unity between the young hipsters and the established working class around an issue that they both felt strongly about. I really think this sort of thing is a good way forward for the social centre movement in general.
