28th of March will be exactly 144 years since the first meeting and the founding declaration of the Paris Commune after its election. For the first time in the world history rebellious working class took over a major metropolis. During the following two months anarchists, communists, other socialists and radical republicans implemented many radical reforms never seen before. However, in May the central government drowned the commune in blood.
Antti Rautiainen will tell about the emergence and decisions of the Paris commune, and about different conclusions between various schools of socialism on the reasons which resulted in the failure of the commune.
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. All the lectures can be streamed live and afterwards from A-ryhmä's channel on Bambuser http://bambuser.com/channel/A-ryhma Events are organized by AutOp, a student group of the University of Helsinki. Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write email@example.com.
Children are welcome by default! We have now also a separate room from 6pm to 8pm in case children get tired of lecture.
