All the money we raise will be for the first ‘Rat Attack’, a gathering around animal liberation and radical ecology, which will be held in Marseilles this summer, July 25th–31st. There will be info about the gathering and how to get involved on the night.

After dinner there will be a film screening of… ‘FOLKBILDNINGSTERROR’, possibly the only propaganda musical film the queer-autonomous left has ever produced!

Folkbildningsterror (roughly: popular education terror) tells the story of a group of people and a hare who are angry with neo-liberal developments in Sweden. It is a punk-spectacle of songs, choreography and flash mobs dealing with important political issues of our time, such as immigration, social exclusion, animal liberation and inequitable health systems, all delivered with a touch of self-irony.

The film is in Swedish with English subtitles. Content Warning: the film contains violence and sex scenes (BDSM, Kink, Fetish), also a lot of nudity!

Kebele is wheelchair accessible. If you have mobility issues and need help getting to/ from the event, or have any other accessibility issues, please contact us and we will do our best to help.

No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
