CITIZEN’S PROPOSAL: We made it!
On May 8 at exactly 06:23 am, the citizen’s proposal submitted by Trampoline House’ s program director Tone Olaf Nielsen on behalf of the People's Movement for Asylum-seeking Children's Future received its signature no. 50,000. This means that the proposal will be debated in the Danish Parliament sometime in October when a new government has been formed. The proposal demands better living conditions and legal rights for children of rejected asylum seekers in Denmark. We hope it will result in some positive changes for the children. If you are a Danish citizen and haven't signed the proposal yet, you can still do so here until October. The more signatures, the louder the demand. And on June 8 from 5–6 pm, we hope you will join us for a reception and celebrate with us.
NEW DAY: The Italian class takes place Wednesdays
From this week onwards, the Italian language class will take place on Wednesdays, 5–6 pm, in the small classroom and not on Tuesdays.
WORKSHOP: Reading and talking about the book White, Jews and Us
Trampoline House's art gallery CAMP invites you to a 4-day workshop. Together with volunteer Maja, you will be reading and discussing the 2017 book White, Jews and Us: Toward a Politics of Revolutionary Love, written by Houria Bouteldja. The workshops will be conducted in English. All are welcome! When: May 18, June 8 & June 15, all days from 2–4 pm. Where: Trampoline House’s small classroom.
