13.8.2020: Ilmastotoimintaa syksyllä – Ende Gelände! Climate Action in the Autumn – Ende Gelände!

(in English below)

Ende Gelände on massamuotoiseen suoraan toimintaan perustuva liike ilmasto-oikeudenmukaisuuden puolesta ja kapitalismia vastaan. Liike on järjestänyt vuodesta 2015 alkaen lukuisia aktioita Euroopassa. Viime vuonna Ende Gelände Finland järjesti yhteismatkan Helsingistä Saksaan Reininmaalle tapahtumaan, jossa pysäytettiin hetkellisesti RWE-yhtiön hiilikaivosten toiminta. Seuraava iso aktio järjestetään syyskuussa 2020, ja Ende Gelände Finland järjestää taas tapahtumaan yhteiskuljetuksen.

Infotapahtumassa käydään läpin Ende Geländen taustoja ja toimintaa ja kerrotaan tämän syksyn tulevista tapahtumista.
Tapahtuma alkaa torstaina 13.8. klo 18 Lymyssä (Pengerkatu 6, Helsinki) esitelmällä, jonka jälkeen on mahdollisuus kysymyksille ja keskustelulle.

Järjestää Ende Gelände Finland


Ende Gelände is a movement based on mass direct action struggling for climate justice and against capitalism. Since 2015 the movement has organised numerous actions in Europe. Last year Ende Gelände Finland organised a common transportation from Helsinki to Rheinland, Germany, to an event where the activity of coal mines of the RWE company was blocked temporarily. The next big action will be organised in September 2020, and Ende Gelände is again organising a common transportation to the event.

The information event will cover the background and actions of Ende Gelände and tell about the upcoming events of this autumn. The event will start on Thursday 13.8. at 6 pm in Lymy (Pengerkatu 6, Helsinki) with a presentation and questions and discussion afterwards.

Organized by Ende Gelände Finland

Lymy Aperitivo 13: Varjokirjamessut / Shadow Bookfair

After a little break from hosting public talks, Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights on Friday July 17th 2020. We gather once a month on a Friday night to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. ♥

In last winter’s round of Aperitivos we focused on collectively-run spaces in or around Kallio and had as our guests Töölön Pyörä, Loukko, Mustan kanin kolo and QUERQ ry.

For July’s summer special we’ll be breaking off a bit from this series to hear from the organizers of this year’s Varjokirjamessut – a radical bookfair going into its 11th year. However, it’s not too much of a detour on our Spaces series as the Shadow Bookfair is resident to Pasila’s Rauhanasema, which is a long-standing base for grassroots organizing in its own right. Varjokirjamessut is held this year on October 23-25.

The evening’s program starts with a very short introduction by us (starting at 19.00), continues with a 30-50 minute presentation from our guests and ends in a little discussion. After the program, the evening continues with hanging out in a more informal setting till around 21.

You are warmly welcome to the thirteenth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Varjokirjamessut and spend a wonderful evening together!

Lymy Aperitivo 12: Töölön Pyörä (Feb 28)

Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. ♥

In this winter’s round of Aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our fourth Aperitivo in the series is on Friday February 28th with the worker owned co-op bikeshop Töölön Pyörä. The co-op celebrated it’s fourth birthday last fall and is only gaining momentum. The shop offers bike maintenance, a curated selection of bicycle components and custom bike builds – not to mention expert advice on all topics cycling related. It has been described as both the best and the friendliest bike shop in Helsinki.

The topics we will be touching on include the politics and practicalities of running a co-op and the experience of “working for yourself”. How is a bike shop a political space? Or is it – even one that is worker owned? We will also explore the question of “why cycling?” and what is the vision of cycling the members of Töölön Pyörä want to promote.

The evening will consist of a short introduction by us (starting at 19) followed by a discussion with our guests. The evening continues with hanging out in a more informal setting till around 21.

You are warmly welcome to the twelth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Töölön Pyörä and spend a wonderful evening together!

Aperitivo 11 with Loukko on Jan 10

Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. ♥

In this winter’s round of aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our third aperitivo in the series is with the subcultural center Loukko. Loukko is a space on Castréninkatu 7 in Kallio, with diverse program and possibilities, it’s a gallery, stage, café, hangout space as well as a space for a wide array of workshops and events. Loukko provides a space for (sub)culture with a focus on safer space and accessibility. 

We have given them the following questions as suggestions for what we might be interested in thinking about together with them on Friday and beyond: What are the political implications of having a space? How does having a space affect the collective? What are some challenges with having and maintaining a space and how do you deal with them? What made you decide to get a space?

The evening will consist of a very short introduction by us (starting at 6:30), a presentation by our guests (between 20-50 min) and some discussion followed by hanging out in a more informal setting till 9.

You are warmly welcome to the tenth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Loukko and spend a wonderful evening together!

How To Stay Lit — Lymy 4 Years

Four years of learning how to kindle a fire and—more importantly—keep it going. Of tending to the fickle flames that at times were reduced to little more than waning embers. And at others warmed our weary bones by bringing friends—old and new alike—together around the modest hearth of our ill-equipped kitchen. Four years of fanning the flames and feeding the fire by blowing kisses, hissing hexes, whistling comforting tunes. Learning how to care. How to neither burn out nor fade away. 𝐻𝑜𝓌 𝓉𝑜 𝓈𝓉𝒶𝓎 𝓁𝒾𝓉.

🔥

You are warmly welcome to join us on Friday the 13th of December (13.12.) at 18.00 in celebrating four years of Lymy and to attend the release party for our collectively written text based on discussions concerning the topics of reproduction, tactics and struggles of day-to-day life that have unfolded over the past 4 years in Lymy. The event starts with a discussion about the text and is followed by a four years party.

Schedule:

18.00 doors open
18.30 talk
19.30 party
22.00 doors close

Lymy Aperitivo 10: Mustan Kanin Kolo 10 Years

TL;DR: Come hang out and listen to a short presentation and discussion with Mustan kanin kolo over drinks next Friday at 6-9pm (main program starts already at 6:30).

***

Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. ♥

In this winter’s round of aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our second aperitivo in the series is with the collective behind Mustan kanin kolo (‘the black rabbit’s burrow’). Kolo is an antiquarian book store and infoshop located on the next block over from Lymy at Hämeentie 26. The store has been around for 10 years this fall so it’s only fitting that we have them over for our 10th aperitivo!

We have given them the following questions as suggestions for what we might be interested in thinking about together with them on Friday and beyond: What are the political implications of having a space? How does having a space affect the collective? What are some challenges with having and maintaining a space and how do you deal with them? What made you decide to get a space?

The evening will consist of a very short introduction by us (starting at 6:30), a presentation by our guests (between 20-50 min) and some discussion followed by hanging out in a more informal setting till 9.

You are warmly welcome to the tenth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Mustan kanin kolo and spend a wonderful evening together!
