August 27 to September 2, 2018￼
After the long awaited victory against the airport project, we are trying to lift ourselves out of the brutal spring, a season marked by two phases of evictions in which the government made sure to avenge the affront that the zad had represented for so many years.

ATTENTION – deadline extended for proposals and registration to the gathering until July 15th.
