Barrikaden is hosting the first WHO KILLED DISTORT? gig. A series of solidarity shows for the Rumah Api collective that will be held in Oslo in 2016. Rumah Api is a DIY Punk Collective in Malaysia focusing on punk gigs, solidarity actions and grassroot politics.
Rumah Api earlier last summer fell victim to police brutality as they were wrongly linked to the Bersih 4 rally; which the collective themselves take distance to due to their stands on election and parlamentarian politics. The police confiscated all their musical equipment at the concert hall, seize 2 computers of people who live there, one smart phone, artwork, and books belonging to people who live there. The police said they search the building for any weapons or explosives that can link the Rumah Api to terrorism. You can read more about it on NO STATE BLOG or Rumah Api’s own website.
