Decolonize Zurich is a group of creators, students and activists who want to bring postcolonial theory into action. We meet every first Wednesday of the month, switching between the two formats ‘theory’ and ‘practice’. All of our meetings are public. Just register to the upcoming event and you will get all information you need to participate.
Twice a year we organize an action to actively and publicly engage with the colonial past of Switzerland, ongoing coloniality and Swiss (neo)colonialism. Decolonizing Zurich (and in the end all the places beyond) constantly requires new measures.
You want to get involved? These are the ways you can take action:

…that we condemn any form of discrimination such as racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, or antisemitism. What counts as discrimination is determined by the person discriminated against, not the person discriminating. Nevertheless, we don’t guarantee a “safe space”, meaning we don’t actively create an environment for one particular (marginalized) group.
