A journey parallel to dystopia
This alphabet soup is the narration of a sound journey in space and time. It is loosely based and inspired on events occurred during summer 2020. It has been written for the love of writing, and with no other intent.

During the action, we have been observant of « corona » social distancing regulations given by Bremen public order office: Wearing masks (not a bad thing for an activist ;)) and keeping 2 m distance, not exchanging items (meaning, also not exchanging instruments/whistles).… Continue reading
The current Corona situation prevents most of us from gathering to rehearse and from being politically active at all, on the one hand out of social responsibility towards those whose health and life is at risk because of the virus and the collapsing health system, but on the other hand because many states are making use of the situation to restrict our possibility to move freely, gather and express ourselves politically, in ways that are not remotely justifiable by a potential risk of infection.… Continue reading
Les lois « Parasites » déclenchent des manifestations de masse dans les villes bélarussiennes, suivies de centaines d’arrestations.
Depuis plusieurs semaines, des manifestations de masse sans précédent ont lieu dans plusieurs villes de Biélorussie.

In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners.
They found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ’political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change.… Continue reading
