Anarchism and degrowth

Degrowth points to the need for a radical transformation of the economic system if humanity is to avoid a wide-ranging ecological collapse. Any realistic strategy of addressing the ongoing anthropogenic planetary ecocide will need to tackle the issue of ‘economic’ growth – how do we stop it while ensuring well-being and flourishing? How does anarchism fit into the degrowth narrative? Why is it important to be explicit about the anarchist roots of degrowth? And how can anarchism benefit from engaging with degrowth ideas? Join us in discussing these questions.

A Spanish Terrorism Story: Repression and Consequences in the Iberian Anarchist Movement

During May 2013 a large number of "anti-terrorist" operations against the anarchists in Spain began. These operations resulted in more than 100 arrests and 50 charges with terrorism. The operations finished in February 2016. The final result were 4-year jail sentences for two persons. In April 2016 another two comrades were arrested and accused of bank robbery. One of them was convicted to 7.5 years of prison. All of this provoked great solidarity in the Spanish anarchist movement, but operation after operation caused the death of this solidarity. Tired, afraid, alone, the anarchists in Spain could not react and fell in a state of pessimism and negative perception. Now, there seems to be no anarchist movement in Spain, only a more or less big group of isolated people that focus on other views and fighting (feminism, veganism,… and others) more theoretical and symbolic than real. How solidarity was built, how it fell, what were the strong points and what were the weaknesses will be discussed in this presentation.

Presenting the Second Issue of the Magazine Antipolitika

Presenting the second issue of the magazine Antipolitika, printed in Serbo-Croatian and English, which in its second issue focuses on 'socialist' Yugoslavia.The new issue of Antipolitika is a collaborative effort of about 20 comrades from the Balkans, Europe and America. It contains new texts written specifically for this issue, as well as older texts, some of which were previously not available in the Serbo-Croatian language. These texts approach ,,socialist“ Yugoslavia from an angle that is usually not espoused by the mainstream left and right – they approach former Yugoslavia as a distinct period of capitalist development in the Balkans and as a statist project which brings with it all the power relations, tensions, expectations, and conformisms that accompany every hierarchical and authoritarian organization of the human sphere.

AKC Attack - The Struggle for Public Spaces

Organisation AKC (eng. Autonomous Cultural Center) Attack, established in 1997, supports independent cultural scene by organising art festivals, alternative gigs, movie and theatre productions, art exhibitions, and free educational content. It also houses a library.This presentation will cover the five-year period (2004-2009) during which AKC Attack functioned without a permanent space for organising projects, and the activities undertaken during that period with the goal of acquiring its own permanent space. These activities ranged from public pressure campaigns in cooperation with other participants of the independent cultural scene in Zagreb to the illegal and temporary occupation of available city spaces. It will also cover the occupation of the former factory space previously operated by Medika and the processes which led to the legalisation of this space. It will give an overview of today's management of the AKC Medika, which is home to a dozen organisations and informal collectives, and sixty independent artists.

Poortgebouw - Squatting in Netherlands

The talk will present recent situation with squatting movement in the Netherlands and more particularly show the example of a community living in a squatted building called Poortgebouw in Rotterdam, which was squatted in the early 80s by a group of activists and artists as a protest against the plans for an Eros centre in the building. Today Poortgebouw is home to 30 people, a bar, a theatre, a wood workshop, a photography darkroom (DoKa) and a guest room. It is also a space for affordable living in a co-operative group and a place for cultural and political actions platforms.
