Our brilliant comrade Iliada Charalambous (DAI, 2023) invites us to the fourth training day of "TRUE COUNTERPOWER" on 19 February 2024 in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. During this day, six activist organizations will provide training on their methods of resistance and how they create space for exchange. In addition, they tell us more about building revolutionary friendships and collective exploration of ideas that currently comprise the TRUE COUNTERPOWER movement in the Netherlands.
