Анархическое движение

Анархисты — это люди, готовые на восстание против несправедливости и угнетения прямо здесь и сейчас. Да, здесь и сейчас, немедленно. Власть, государство, капитал, авторитет, репрессия — все это поджидает нас на каждом шагу (в офисе, дома, в метро, на улице), далеко ходить не надо. Но кто способен атаковать противника незамедлительно, спонтанно, решительно, не сходя с места? Только настоящие анархисты.
Анархисты — сторонники безотлагательного восстания. Они не верят в телеологическое время социалистов, но пребывают в абсолютном настоящем прямой индивидуальной атаки, не опосредованной никакой догмой или дисциплинарной организацией.
Политическая, этическая, социальная и философская задача заключается сейчас в том, чтобы освободить индивидуума от государства и типов индивидуации, которые государство продуцирует и навязывает человеку. Освободить индивидуума от ложных политик фиксированной идентичности (по полу, по профессии, по национальности, по менталитету), от прозябания в тени государственных институций и их идеологий. Анархисты — это те люди в современном обществе, кто всем своим сознанием и своей деятельностью принадлежат этому освобождению и участвуют в борьбе за него на своих местах.

Disturbances: Anticapitalism in Finland + Rembetiko Party

Capitalism and markets have always been fought back. Reforming and countering market mechanisms has brought about welfare and innovation for example in all Nordic countries, but inherent problems of capitalism have not disappeared.

Markets centralize wealth, force people into poverty and foster strife and competition between people. At the same time, markets help propel the greatest environmental catastrophe humanity has ever faced - planetary climate change.

Sat 26th of March Disturbances-lecture: The Arrival of Feminism at the Anarchist Movement - the Anarcho-Feminist Union 'Peppi' And Other Feminist Groups in the Activist Movement of the 1990s

Doors open at 4 pm, Lecture begins at 4:15 pm

The anarchist movement in Finland in the 1990s was largely organized by men. The Finnish Anarchist Union, FAU (Suomen anarkistiliitto, SAL), Kapinatyöläinen-magazine ("Rebel Worker"), solidarity demonstrations and panel discussions were dominated by men, and mostly men's voices were heard at anarchist meetings. Red anarchism in Helsinki, especially, leaned heavily on the traditions of the workers' movement which did include lofty speeches about women's rights but whose gender roles were, in practice, quite traditional.

Disturbances-lecture 30th of January: Economic or Political Organization -- or both? Anarchism and Trade Unions

On Saturday 30th of January In Kupoli, Uusi ylioppilastalo, Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor. Doors open at 6pm and the lecture starts at 6.15.

Finnish labor unions have been marked by power struggle between political parties for nearly a hundred years now. Revolutionary syndicalism, born in early 20th century France, tried to end inter-party arguments within labor unions. Revolution was to be achieved solely through economic means without political power struggles.
