Open position in the EYFA collective in Berlin (starting November/December 2018)

What is the EYFA collective?

We are a small collective of activists that supports an informal network of grassroots groups across europe in their approach to social and environmental justice.

EYFA strives for a world based on social, environmental and economic justice, in which people feel empowered to act and raise their voices on the issues that affect their lives. EYFA works to challenge the dominant neoliberal social and economic system, while developing new anti-authoritarian ways of organising our communities based on environmental and social sustainability. EYFA projects are mainly for young people, serving as a catalyst for action on local and international levels. A special focus is put on providing access for groups to take part in international grassroots social movements.

The massive police operations caused many injuries, the destruction of a part of
