Recently I’ve spoken with few people coordinating works on the roof to get more details. Here they are;
Since last week company that suppose to renovate the roof of the building is busy with it. They say it will take between three to four weeks (depending on the weather). Only after they are done we can start estimating the damage and start fixing. They are currently putting new isolation on the roof and soon will start putting new roof tiles and fixing gutters and drain pipes. Also good information for all of us is that most probably Lag will get nice big roof window so we’ll have more daylight.
The electricity was still down in the whole building (saturday 19th October). The blackout should be solved within days, so we’re going to be back online soon.
For now we need to keep the ‘valuable’ stuff in the middle of the place until works are done.
So basically all we can do now is wait and hope there won’t be gigantic storms in next weeks. As for damage.
Most probably the floor in the back of the place will have to be replaced. Hopefully the front part of the floor did not suffer too much and we won’t have to replace that.As soon as we’re not in a danger of floods we will try to dry the back walls and hope that will be enough. Otherwise we will have to replace that as well.
Coming saturday (26th october) Lag should be back online and we’re going to move stuff around, clean up, check the damage and try to do some fun stuff as well, so come along.

Due to roof works on building, we’re experiencing quite some leaks and sometimes even floods in the Lag. The situation was quite dramatic for last three days. We scooped hectolitres of water from the place and were forced to switch off the power in the hole building. Therefore we’ve decided to cancel all public events this month, and move them to november, where hopefully the roof works will be finished and we won’t have more leaks.
As soon as we estimate damages both in our place as well as all the other projects in the building that suffer the same fate this weekend (ASB,MKZ, RPM recording studio, wood workshop, living apartments), we’ll inform you how we want to proceed.
We will need quite some extra hands to help out so keep an eye on future updates / announcements and come to help us out.

We’ve decided to make general flyer for Lag (it’s about time). Create, upload and diss the others.
15th April from 7pm Lag will be hosting the second TA3M (Techno-Activism 3rd Mondays).
Techno-Activism Third Mondays (TA3M) is an informal meetup designed to connect techno-activists and hacktivists in different cities who work on or with circumvention tools, and are interested in anti-censorship and anti-surveillance tech.

SLUG is meeting again after years and years!
It’s time to meet again and hear from people what they’ve been doing lately, have a drink together, hear possible future perspectives for SLUG as a group and such, and see if there is interest in doing activities as SLUG in LAG, get lost in the multiple layers of groups, identities, places and networks now available and so on…
We reconnect at LAG ( Eerste Schinkelstraat 14 ) this coming Thursday, 28th of March, at 21.00.
Hope to see you there!
