The Neighbourhood Picnic constitutes an annual opportunity to create a space where Lavapiés (Madrid) residents can come together in the Museo’s Garden. A place for everyone and part of the daily life of the neighbourhood in which it is situated.  

Once again, the struggles and protests of different collectives that make up the Museo Situado network are centred, with the following focal points framing the encounter: #Esenciales* #RegularizacionYa (#Essential* #RegularisationNow), an initiative for the regularisation of migrant people in an irregular administrative situation; #Ratificacion189Ya (#Ratification189Now), a movement to fight for the ratification of Agreement 189 of the International Work Organisation (OIT); and #StopExclusionSanitaria (#StopHealthExclusion), a movement to make the health exclusion faced by thousands of migrant people visible.

Throughout the day, the intervention Resistance will be carried out by the Fiestas Populares de Lavapiés platform, as well as three sections corresponding to the aforementioned campaigns — one, #Esenciales* #RegularizacionYa, aims to collect signatures for the Popular Legislative Initiative (ILP), which seeks to extraordinarily regulate 500,000 undocumented people.
