TOTW: Communication

dawgz > society!

If you had asked people in Belarus how long the dictatorship of Lukashenko was left in early 2020, they would have looked at you like a fool. In a respected dictatorship, such questions are not asked, because you know what can happen. And in general, it so happens that the reign of the great leader is timeless. But the situation has changed so radically over the last 8 months that Belarusians took to the streets and for the first time in the new history of Belarus they fought back the police in at least 33 different cities of the country.

Responsibility Claim for Arson Attack at National Bank in Maroussi, Athens GR

from: act for freedom now!

Athens, Greece: Taking responsibility for the Arson Attack on the National Bank in Maroussi/Athens by: Thousands of Suns of the Night

“Even if we never win, we will always fight.”

Attack on train station avenges graffiter

From Act for Freedom!, Athens, Greece, by Anarchists

The destruction of a train station for the death of a 20years old graffiter

Gray city and hazy trains go around the urban metropolis of Athens, but in this city there are individuals and groups who can not stand this daily repetition and choose to express themselves on its gray and rotten walls and train sheets, choosing a greater risk to send their message throughout the city. Graffiti has not always been accepted by society at large and the state consider it as an enemy that soils what they want clean for a European model of the city. This is clear from the verbal attack of a “respectable” citizen of the so-called “ruffianoi” who will threat you by calling the cops and many times use physical violence.

Art and the Void

From birdsbeforethestorm.net

When I was younger people used to say “all the great artists are crazy” and that used to scare me a little bit, because I wanted to be a great artist but I didn’t want to lose touch with reality. People say artists must suffer, and that scared me too, because I like suffering about as much as the next girl, which is to say I don’t.
