Open Meeting- We need financial support!

•January 28, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Open Meeting at Tempest Library-
Wednesday 16th February 2011.

A call for financial support.

As many of you who use the space already know,  Tempest library runs entirely on contributions given by the administrative collective and by others who use the space and participate in the project. Before moving to Reichenberger str. 63a we asked individuals interested in the project to committ to a six month period during which they would make regular contributions towards rent. This system functioned relatively well for the first few months but slowly and predictably contributions have dried up and we have had to use money that was raised at our infrequent soli-paties to cover rent and electricity.

We are not disheartened.  This is a call out to all those who feel an affinity with the Tempest and who would like to see the space remain open. Our rent contract lasts until the beginning of January 2012 and, for at least this time, we would love to continue as a project, a library, and a meeting space. In order to do this we need a clear demonstration from other comrades that they share this desire; right now we need solidarity in the form of financial support.

We pay: 400euros WARM (including electricity, heating) per month.

Without the financial support of rent contributors, we will be forced to close the space.

This is a great opportunity to talk not only about the finances of the Tempest, but also about the project in general. We hope that the project will be able to continue and we look forward to hearing your voices.

Open Workers Meeting

This is a quick reminder that on Sunday 12.12 at 16:00 Tempest Library will hold an open meeting for workers. While the focus of the meeting will clearly be on workplace struggle this  in no way means that only those with jobs are welcome to come!  If you feel that the struggle against work, in whatever form it may take, is part of your everyday reality we invite you to join us. Please see the flyer for a longer explanation of why we are holding the meeting and who is invited. We hope to see you there.

The flyer is in larger format further down the blog.

As promised to those who came, here is a link to the text that was written about the film ‘Cruel and Unusual’ that we showed during the ‘Break with Prison Society’ weekend. The text is part of a pamphlet called ‘Lockdown’ about prison and gender non-conformity.
