Friend’s Day Street Café on Feb 13

On Saturday February 13 — ystävänpäivä (friend’s day) eve — from noon to 16 Lymy continues its work towards being and creating a more liveable neighborhood, being a nest for new and old friendships as well as autonomous organizing.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, we believe that by meeting each other, even once in a while outside, we can continue to develop what a world worth living in would look like. By finding forms of being and acting together, we can transform our relationships and develop new forms of life in common.

The street café consists of a hangout on the sidewalk with some chairs, music, warm drinks and waffles (MobilePay preferred).

“Love and friendship tell us about the value of quality over quantity: the collective body composed of other bodies does not increase its potencia according to the mere quantity of its individual components, but in relation to the intensity of the tie that unites them.” – Colectivo Situaciones

We ask everyone to keep safety distances and most importantly not to attend the event if they feel sick or feel that they might’ve been exposed.

We also ask everyone who comes to the event to not assume consent for anything from anyone, including being photographed.

13.8.2020: Ilmastotoimintaa syksyllä – Ende Gelände! Climate Action in the Autumn – Ende Gelände!

(in English below)

Ende Gelände on massamuotoiseen suoraan toimintaan perustuva liike ilmasto-oikeudenmukaisuuden puolesta ja kapitalismia vastaan. Liike on järjestänyt vuodesta 2015 alkaen lukuisia aktioita Euroopassa. Viime vuonna Ende Gelände Finland järjesti yhteismatkan Helsingistä Saksaan Reininmaalle tapahtumaan, jossa pysäytettiin hetkellisesti RWE-yhtiön hiilikaivosten toiminta. Seuraava iso aktio järjestetään syyskuussa 2020, ja Ende Gelände Finland järjestää taas tapahtumaan yhteiskuljetuksen.

Infotapahtumassa käydään läpin Ende Geländen taustoja ja toimintaa ja kerrotaan tämän syksyn tulevista tapahtumista.
Tapahtuma alkaa torstaina 13.8. klo 18 Lymyssä (Pengerkatu 6, Helsinki) esitelmällä, jonka jälkeen on mahdollisuus kysymyksille ja keskustelulle.

Järjestää Ende Gelände Finland


Ende Gelände is a movement based on mass direct action struggling for climate justice and against capitalism. Since 2015 the movement has organised numerous actions in Europe. Last year Ende Gelände Finland organised a common transportation from Helsinki to Rheinland, Germany, to an event where the activity of coal mines of the RWE company was blocked temporarily. The next big action will be organised in September 2020, and Ende Gelände is again organising a common transportation to the event.

The information event will cover the background and actions of Ende Gelände and tell about the upcoming events of this autumn. The event will start on Thursday 13.8. at 6 pm in Lymy (Pengerkatu 6, Helsinki) with a presentation and questions and discussion afterwards.

Lymy Aperitivo 13: Varjokirjamessut / Shadow Bookfair

After a little break from hosting public talks, Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights on Friday July 17th 2020. We gather once a month on a Friday night to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. ♥

In last winter’s round of Aperitivos we focused on collectively-run spaces in or around Kallio and had as our guests Töölön Pyörä, Loukko, Mustan kanin kolo and QUERQ ry.

For July’s summer special we’ll be breaking off a bit from this series to hear from the organizers of this year’s Varjokirjamessut – a radical bookfair going into its 11th year. However, it’s not too much of a detour on our Spaces series as the Shadow Bookfair is resident to Pasila’s Rauhanasema, which is a long-standing base for grassroots organizing in its own right. Varjokirjamessut is held this year on October 23-25.

The evening’s program starts with a very short introduction by us (starting at 19.00), continues with a 30-50 minute presentation from our guests and ends in a little discussion. After the program, the evening continues with hanging out in a more informal setting till around 21.

You are warmly welcome to the thirteenth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Varjokirjamessut and spend a wonderful evening together!
