Disturbances lecture series 22th of November: Against punishment: transformative justice and accountability

In Kupoli, Uusi ylioppilastalo, Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor.

Food served 4PM, Lecture 4:30PM

The lecture focuses on the idea of a world without prisons by examining contemporary projects of transformative justice. These projects are searching an answer to the question: how to organize community-based justice practices and fight violence without the police and punitive state justice system? Through practical examples I will present the concept of transformative justice which functions as a device for several anarchist, queer-, and activist communities in their efforts to solve internal conflicts (e.g. sexual harassment or violence), undermining social structures behind the individual acts of violence.

Aino-Marjatta Mäki, who will speak via skype, is a Lacanian doctoral student, who is part of Prison Action London, and will participate 2016 in a research project on sexual violence and gendered harms within the social movements and activist communities in the UK.

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. 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 .

 

Children are welcome to any events of A-ryhmä by default! We have now also a separate room in case children get tired of lecture. Prams can be left in the hallway on the 6th or 1st floor.

Kupoli is inaccessible space.

There is one small step at the downstairs front door, and an elevator that runs between from floor 1 to 6. Kupoli is on the 7th floor after a staircase.

There are two searate, rather spacey but not wheelchair-standardized, unisex toilets. There are stairs between Kupoli and wc.

The results of the first 30 years of “democracy” in Ukraine are, to put it mildly, unconvincing. The economy and the media are in the hands of rival oligarchs, corruption is at staggering levels, economic development lags behind many African countries, and in addition, the country has become the...
