*Queer Cafe Food and Talkin’*
DO YOU WANT TO COME AND EAT DINNER (delicious, hot & cheap, just like the queers who’ll be making it) AND DISCUSS THE FORTHCOMING PRIDE MARCH & FESTIVITIES ON 4TH JULY?
Are we dissatisfied? do we want to communicate that to our lgbt siblings? do something on that date? do we want to disrupt the march? be a black bloc? kill the cops? or at least take the piss out of them? clown army? prance around in nothing more than a provacative banner – or body paint? produce some propaganda that explains what we mean by words like ‘anarch@-queer’ & ‘anti-assimilation’? recruit/seduce? cover the west end in spray-painted slogans? picket or picnic with the trans community? stay at home and ignore the whole thing? what do you think? please come along and share your desires, so we can make them happen!
The Library House has a fabulous free shop, so if you have any clothes, shoes, records, books, bric a brac which need redistribution, bring them along for everyone else to rummage through/fight over.
Yes, there will be (vegan) cake. And ice-cream for early arrivers if it’s sunny…
All ages welcome – there’s a separate room for kids to hang out in if they want to.
If you can’t make it on the 17th, but have some ideas for action, or want to be kept in the loop, contact us c/o cazalita@yahoo.co.uk.

London FreeSchool aims to confront the hierarchy and inequality that dominates learning. It stems from a belief that the control and institutionalisation of education is wrong and as communities we need to reclaim knowledge in order to develop self reliance. It is a collectively run project open to all, in fact we are actively seeking new bodies who want to get involved and help organise similar events to this. If you are up for this then please get in contact (deschooling_society [at] lists [dot] riseup [dot] net).
Check the website http://londonfreeschool.wordpress.com from now onwards for more information on what is planned for the weekend. We hope to have all the descriptions for workshops up as soon as possible and the full timetable will be posted later.
Sign up to our newsletter at https://lists.riseup.net/www/subscribe/londonfreeschool for irregular updates on upcoming events in London.

This week, our special event is a photograph exhibition on saturday 13th at 7pm. Kiera James took pictures of squats and squatters around London and will be showing them at the Library House.

Summer is coming, and there will probably be some changes at the Library House.
First is the change of shape of our cafe. You got a message about that yesterday. Wednesday evenings will be less food and more sun: welcome to our Summer Cinema Libre!
Once in a while we will do a special cafe (maybe benefit, special screenings, talks etc) with lots of food but we will let you know on time off course!
Kundalini Yoga is over. There might be some random yoga lessons during summer, just keep an eye on the newsletter and the website if you’re interested.
Also, if you interested in more SOMA anarchist therapy workshops (cause you couldn’t make it on the open day!), contact us and we’ll put you in contact with the relevant people :)
