Participants of CrimethInc. collective tell about their project at Mannerheim Hall (Uusi ylioppilastalo, entrance A) 9th of October at 18 PM. Since the mid-1990s, CrimethInc. has been one of the most prolific and ambitious anarchist projects in North America. Participants have crisscrossed the continent for countless tours and actions; produced
books, magazines, and other literature, including 650,000 copies of the primer Fighting for Our Lives; and reported from the front lines of summit protests, riots, anti-repression campaigns, and other adventurous experiments. Always controversial, CrimethInc. has earned the ire of leftists and government agencies while challenging the general public.
In this presentation, longtime participants will reflect on these experiences, presenting material from different eras of CrimethInc. activity and discussing how the context has shifted in the United
States. Examining why US anarchists have followed a trajectory from subcultural rebellion towards generalized insurrection, we will conclude with hypotheses about what the future holds. Please join us for a lively conversation.

Disturbances - Lecture Series
Disturbances is an open series of lectures and discussions at the crossroads of society, philosophy, history, economy and resistance.
We are already aware that we can not live as before, but we do not know what the future holds. Others are stuck in the past, but we only want to understand it. Even a small disturbance of an initial condition can lead a system into a completely different state.
Our speakers are Finnish and international anti-authoritarian researchers and activists. Events are organized in cooperation with A-ryhmä and AutOp, two student groups of the University of Helsinki.
Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write firstname.lastname@example.org.
