You want to defend the ZAD Rheinland with us this autumn/winter? – Then pack your rucksack and come along!

You don’t know exactly what you need? No problem… Below you will find a short packing list with things you should bring. If you would like to bring additional donations in kind, please have a look at the wish list.


Tip: The packing list is interactive. When you click on an item, it is crossed out so that you can keep track of it 🙂 You can undo the action with a double click. Attention: If you reload the page, the marks will be deleted! If it does not work, you may have to allow the browser to use Java Script.
