In 2016, the Anarchist Radio Berlin (within the framework of the FdA) participated in a fundraising campaign that aimed to raise money for the purchase of a building in Cuba. The federation finally made a significant contribution.

After the comrades in Cuba succeeded in buying a building in the capital of La Habana, it is finally over (on Saturday, 5/5/2018): The Center ABRA (Social Center and Libertarian Library) opens its doors solemnly. The local comrades ask for the widest possible dissemination, a wish that we are only too happy to fulfill. And we call you to do the same.
