February 25, Cross Club
This weekend, Cross Club will be hosting a charity event set up by the activist group, No Borders Team. Vegan burgers will be served from 14:00 until 23:30 on Saturday, and all proceeds will help fund humanitarian aid projects, such as assisting people fleeing the war in Ukraine, as well as refugees stranded on the Polish-Belarusian border.
“All voluntary solidarity contributions for the burgers will, after deducting the costs, be passed on to help people who are fleeing the war. No Borders Team (NBT) is an anarchist grassroots group uniting individuals from various collectives from Poland and Europe who oppose the actions of border authorities whose aggression is directed against people seeking refuge. As a group, NBT believes that freedom of movement and residence is a basic human right. Therefore, they do not agree with the authorities’ policy of categorizing people. No Borders Team helps everyone fleeing war, both from Ukraine and on the Polish-Belarusian border,” the organizers say.
