The Terror of Adolescence

The Terror of Adolescence

https://freedomnews.org.uk/the-terror-of-adolescence/

It’s the old coming of age story.

You go to school, you study, you make friends. You open your text books. You realise you are only learning what the state wants you to know. You rage against your teachers, your headmaster and your school. You laugh in the face of society, state and authority.

Father Frost Against is now Feast After Plague

TAZ!

From avtonom.org

Festival will be organised in Helsinki from 11th to 14th of June. 
The modern situation requires a change in the aesthetic and conceptual forms of expressing the real. Another incentive to rethink representation and tactics was the pandemic and macro-political vulnerability, rallies and waves of new political repression in Russia and Belarus, which affected all aspects of our life. After the worldwide "apocalypse", we will meet under a new slogan - "Feast After the Plague".

Section of I.W.A. in the region of Russia about the last protests for Navalny

"They're the same picture."

from Aitrus.Info

We, anarchists and anarcho-syndicalists, consider it completely unacceptable for ourselves to take any part in political shows organized by supporters of the right-wing populist Navalny, who is sadly "famous" for his openly nationalist, anti-immigrant, anti-Caucasian and anti-Semitic statements. To march in the ranks of the demonstrations they convened would mean - regardless of any excuses or "explanations" - to turn into the back of one of the political gangs waging a dirty and unprincipled struggle for power.

Interview with the team behind antijob.net

Interview with the team behind antijob.net

From Anarchistische Groep Amsterdam

"We have to work most of our lives. Our efforts, time, ideas, successes and failures are compressed into rubles, dollars and euros – impersonal banknotes, which are constantly lacking to fulfill our desires and needs. Typically, work is fraught with wage delays, employers’ machinations, nervousness and humiliation from idiotic rules and bosses fooling around."

That’s how antijob.net, the most successful anarchist project from Russia, starts it’s manifest. It’s a website where workers can leave a review on their (ex-)bosses, helping each other in finding the job that sucks less. AGA took an interview with the team behind it.

Moscow’s Golovinsky District Court sentenced graduate student and anarchist activist Azat Miftakhov to six years in prison on Monday, January 18, after finding him guilty of attacking a United Russia office in 2018.

Miftakhov, who studied in the mathematics faculty at Moscow State University, pleaded not guilty to the hooliganism charges.

Two other suspects who earlier pleaded guilty in the case were given suspended sentences: Elana Gorban was sentenced to four years probation and Andrey Eykin to two years.

These were the exact sentences that state prosecutors requested for the three defendants in the case.
