These groups are regularly active in the Vrankrijk
AAAH ! Anarchist Action Assistance Hour
AAAH! is a weekly Anarchist Action Assistance Hour, where you can meet other groups that can support you with pulling off your action, or give advice about logistics. During AAAH! you can make connections with groups including, but not limited to: Street Medics, Support & Recovery, Kraakspreekuur and Arrestantengroep.
How does AAAH work?
We do consultations weekly, you can walk in every Thursday from 19:00 until 20:30. If you want to talk to a specific group, please reach out to us beforehand so we can make sure the right person is present. You can do this either by stopping by or e-mailing us at: email@example.com. Please do not e-mail us any details of your action, we would love to hear it in person.
We are also open as a meeting space for action groups during the assistance hour. If your collective wants to meet during AAAH: reach out to us!
I don’t identify as an anarchist, am I still welcome?
That depends! Are you fighting for a better world, and do you not exclude other progressive movements? Then yes! But please keep in mind we only organize according to anarchist principles, this means we organize horizontally and help people who do the same.
Amsterdam Street Medics
Amsterdam Street Medics provide first aid, emergency care (at actions, demos, and other activist hot spots), assistance with health related issues, aid in locating resources (such as mental health support, addiction treatment, etc), and listening. We offer periodic training for new medics. We want to work with others in the community to care for each other so we can be dangerous together. Medic Monday is currently by appointment only, and are best reached through their email Amsterdamstreetmedics@gmail.com
In Full Effect is Vrankrijk’s bi-monthly underground hip-hop event. With live acts from all over the world and tried and tested local DJ’s, we aim to stay true to the spirit of the Universal Zulu Nation’s adage of ‘Peace, Unity, Love & Having Fun’.
And since it’s Vrankrijk, each event will support a good cause.
Continuing the DIY punk tradition!
Every Friday and occasionally on other days (check agenda), the dirty, unshaven, drinking, smoking scum members of our infamous crust-punk collective is here serving you a combination of never heard or underestimated punk/crust/metal tunes. In fucked up gentrified Amsterdam we want to create a space for those bands and initiatives that would otherwise not be able to perform because of commercial greed and moneymaking assholes.
