Kósy rave 4 refugees
INDEPENDENTLY ORGANISED EVENT.
It is 10 years and 11 months since Haukur Hilmarsson and Jason Slade ran on the runway trying to stop the deportation of Paul Ramses. It was the spark that started the movement and this year the fire lit up again as the Refugees in Iceland took to Austurvöllur and started a week long occupation amidst the blazing snow – fighting for recognition as human beings.
It has been 4 months of actions now and despite the Immigration Office deporting the people involved – the struggle doesn´t stop!
This Friday No Borders Iceland will organise another rave/party to support the case of refugees fighting for human treatment, dignity and normal life on the island. Come, dance around, chill in the vegetable garden and support a good cause!
We will have DJs, refreshments, food, good vibes. Everyone welcome!
THE NAME SAYS KÓSY, BUT REST ASSURED – THERE IS SPACE FOR ALL, NO MATTER THE BACKGROUND! Let your friends know!
SUGGESTED ENTRY DONATION:
500 to 3000 ISK, but no one will be turned away – just let us know at the entrance if you cannot/don´t want to pay!
All the profit is used for getting lawyers, transportation, safety network for the refugees in Iceland.
We will also have some T-shirts, badges and other small things that you can get for a donation, if you wanted to show extra solidarity.
If you cannot come, but would like to support the cause financially – you can always transfer to:
Account number: 0133-26-020590
There is a step before the garden gate and then 5 steps leading to the main entrance, each 17 cm high, door widths in the building vary between 50 cm (upstairs washroom door) and 80 cm (entrance door).
The bathrooms are so far only on the upper floor and in the basement. The door to the meeting room is 75 cm wide (as most other doors in the building). There is no bathroom on the ground floor.
Both washrooms in the building are gender neutral. The event will take place in the Protest room – the way to it is through the first 5 steps, entrance door and two more doors.
