*******************************
"EAT THE RICH" FESTIVAL AT SVARTLAMON
*******************************

We want to invite groups, organisations and individuals to participate in
and create the Eat The Rich-festival at Svartlamon in Trondheim, Norway,
June 12., 13. and 14.

"Eat The Rich" is DIY; the participants own non-commercial festival. It is
open for all smaller groups and individuals to carry out their own events
and arrangements. The festival is free from authorities and controlling
organisers.

Svartlamon is an area of Trondheim which the authorities in Trondheim do
not want, and which they have been striving to eliminate for several years,
regardless of the massive protests from the people who live there.
Svartlamon is housing parts of the alternative cultural and political scene
in Trondheim. For the last ten years both the area and the city-owned
houses have been neglected by the municipal authorities, leaving the
inhabitants with the maintenance of the buildings and environment.
Following alternating arguments for demolition, the city council of
Trondheim decided to sell most of Svartlamon to a car shop in 1996, to
satisfy their request for expansions. In February 1998 the people of 14
houses at Svartlamon received eviction orders.

With the Eat The Rich festival we want to manifest events that the
authorities do not control, and which they possibly don't even want to see.
Instead of being alienated by political, bureaucratic and vested economic
interest, we will make our own fun.

The Eat The Rich festival will have room for concerts, performances, fairs,
cafes, workshops, seminars, actions; non ltd. All bands, theatre troops,
artists, political and cultural free groups idealist projects and
individuals are hereby invited to lay an arrangement to the festival. Do It
Yourself.

We who are calling on the festival will not control or rule the festival,
just co-ordinate the events going on. We sketch the festival, but it is up
to others to fill it with contents. We will arrange room for the events,
put together a programme, forward information etc. Additionally we are
arranging concerts at the autonome youth house UFFA, and a free outdoor
concert at Svartlamon.

In order to make a programme or festival paper, we will appreciate to
receive information on all planned events for the festival ASAP.
