ruoantuotanto

New Student House, Kupoli: Mannerheimintie 5 B, 7th floor

Food is served 16:00, lecture at 16:30

A mix of people have been conquering bread for the past three years on the outskirts of Helsinki using anarchist principles. They have a vision of community-reliance. How food, energy and housing can be produced in cooperation between people living in the countryside and those in the cities. They want to build a life and production worth defending.

Come and listen how food production based on self-organisation, anti-authorianism and consensus has succeeded. Does the principle "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" work in practise? What kind of obstacles does capitalism place in front of free production?

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. You may also follow lecture online (both real-time and recording) at .
Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write .
