Dmitry Buchenkov interviewed in prison: it turned me into a convinced revolutionary big time

Dmitry Buchenkov, PhD in political sciences, antifascist, anarchist and boxing coach, has been under arrest for already more than three months in “Vodnik” remand prison.

Red anarchism in Helsinki, especially, leaned heavily on the traditions of the workers' movement which did include lofty speeches about women's rights but whose gender roles were, in practice, quite traditional.
