House meetings start again!

We will start the weekly ‘house meetings’ again. The house meeting is the democratic parliament and decision-making forum of the user-driven Trampoline House, where users, volunteers, and staff discuss urgent issues related to the house or life in the Danish asylum camps, and come up with solutions for it. It takes place every Tuesday from 4–5 pm and everyone is welcome.

The Land Between is a 78 min. documentary directed by David Fedele. It shows the lives of clandestine migrants trying to make their way to Europe. While waiting for their chance, they are living in the mountains in the north of Morocco, close to Melilla, one of two Spanish enclaves on the African mainland, separated from Morocco by a massive fence. Rather than focusing on the political part, The Land Between aims at telling the human story.”
