Praha: May Day – internationally against militarism

Situation in our country starts to resemble the era of Cold war. US army organizes a military parade across east Europe, mainstream media hails propaganda of USA, high-ranking politician would gladly accept permanent presence of soldiers of United States. The similar slogans, that were used to celebrate USSR, now celebrate USA. The similar catchwords, that were used to defame US imperialism, defame now Russia. This is all because we are forced to accept alleged need of strengthening our army to defend against Russian threat.

In response to this propaganda, increasing number of people hail the other side of bipolar view of the world. Both groups are blind to cruelty of their favourite superpower and blind to the real oppressor.

Our response should be international struggle against capitalistic nationalistic militarism. We should point out that we do not have to choose between two imperialistic world powers. The bipolar world of cold war, nationalism and militarism are beneficial only for men in power and big military business, which parasitize on misery of the people. There is no benefit for the people at the bottom of society. Our struggle is supposed to be the struggle for better living conditions, for freedom.

That is why Anarchistická federace (Czech) together with Autonomous Action (, Russia) organize the May Day demonstration against militarism. In this madness of strengthening militarism and nationalism, it is necessary to show the possibility of a third way of the international fight against economic oppression. Therefore we would be glad, if you, our comrades, will support the demonstration, whether by presence on demonstration or by spreading of its idea.
