Unfortunately, we must once again delay our festival, this time due to war. Our concept was always to be an open meeting of Russian (and not only Russian) activists in Helsinki. But now borders are closed, and it is unclear if any open social activism in Russia will be possible from now on.
But we plan to organise our festival anyway. We still have spaces and organising group. Our preliminary new dates for the festival are 6th-9th of January 2023.
In Kupoli, Uusi ylioppilastalo, Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor.
Doors open 6PM, Lecture 6:15PM
In lecture, gender, sexuality and family are being reviewed in relation with nationality, control politics, state and capitalism. Why anarchism is a necessity for queer, and why queer needs anarchism. What would be gender without a state?
International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners
Saturday, July 25, 2015
Antifascists fight against those who—in the government or in the streets—dream of imposing their fascist and other Far Right nationalist nightmares on the rest of us. Throughout the world, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and racist bigotries are on the rise. Antifas are on the frontline in confronting these reactionary politics, and we will not forget our comrades imprisoned in the course of this struggle.

I know very little about the anti-fascist movement, except, of course, the facts that there is no movement of one of the official leader, that there are comprised of people of different political and philosophical views that the movement uses different methods of dealing with "fascism", including through direct clashes with the "fascists". I have a familiar anti-fascists from St. Petersburg. Some of them, 4 November 2009 by a small group went against the Russian march with a banner "Nationalism in the trash." They are heroes. And make me the warmest feelings.
Not received approval from the authorities first in the history of St. Petersburg gay pride parade held in the most unexpected place. Representatives sexual minorities had it right in the courtyard of Hermitage.
