b.ASIC a.CTIVIST k.ITCHEN (b.a.k.) is a community kitchen network for sharing and activities in the struggle against fascism, oppression, and exploitation.
It aims to gather people to prepare food and take part in shared meals while exchanging experiences, political views, critical thoughts, and radical actions. “Basic” because it is meant to serve as a base for the commons, a space to gather political support, and to build solidarity and alliances. “Activist” because it can be used as a tool to help activists (individuals and groups) to nurture radical, collective actions. It is a call to action on matters that concern and affect the greater majority of the people. “Kitchen” couples the act of food preparation and the shared meal with art, politics, and their interactions.
