On the 17th of April the transnational movement via campesina called for worldwide actions supporting the rights of small scale farmers around the globe. Initiated by the group Afrique-Europe-Interact ( http://www.afrique-europe-interact.net/ ) a flashmob took place in the Deutsche Bank Bremen, protesting against food prize speculation and landgrabbing. Just enjoy this wonderful performance:
Some Sambistae from ROR Bremen and Oldenburg also took part in this event joining the performance or playing the drums while leaving the building.… Continue reading
“Regarding the right to freedom of movement, the defendant is not a German and therefore does not have this basic right.” (German Judge in a trial about Residentzpflicht, February 2013)

RoR was in Magdeburg (Germany) for the antinazi blockades on the 12th of January 2013.
Some pictures of the day.

The nazis will come back next year, so will we.
this is the new website of the Rhythms of Resistance network. The old version was really out of date so it needed a complete rework.
As you will find us rather in the streets than in front of a computer, this page does not claim to be totally up-to-date in the future. But at least we try.
