Book Presentation: An Oasis in a Desert of Order

Cook together, eat together? For more than 20 years the SchülerInnenKoordination SIKB (students coordination) distributed free meals in Bern – the Gassenküche. The book Oase in einer Wüste der Ordnung (An Oasis in a Desert of Order) lets those activists have their say. Short extracts will be read during the book presentation and former activists will talk about their experiences and answer any questions. The issues the Gassenküche was built around (public space, repression and policies on drugs, expulsion law or now the police law) are still hot topics and will form part of the open discussion following the presentation.
