On the 7th and 8th of July 2017 the G20 summit is supposed to take place in Hamburg. The heads of the governments of the 19 richest and most powerful states of the world, accompanied by 6.000 delegation members, surrounded and permanently photographed by 3.000 journalists and of course cordoned off and protected by an army of at least 10.000 police and secret service operatives.
All this is supposed to take place in the middle of Hamburg: in the exhibition halls, in the town hall, in the Elbphilharmonie. Large-scale and multilevel barriers, ID controls, evacuated appartments – the main victims will be the people in the Karoviertel and the surrounding neighborhoods. Especially those, that are already more exposed to frequent controls and harrassments because of the color of their skin, their legal status, their precarious social situation or other reasons.
The residents are supposed to give way for an orchestration of power, a living city is turned into a dead scenery. The main performance is the illusion that the political elites of global capitalism have everything well under control, that they are somehow capable of providing security, peace, livelihood and a real future perspective to the people of the world.

3rd Anarchist Congress
Working People’s Day
Discussions | Meetings | Lectures | Books | Art | Gigs + more
Join us in Wrocław [PL] for the 3rd Anarchist Congress and May Day celebrations!
Kongresono is a grassroots initiative – together we try to create space for meetings and discussions, encourage dialogue within the anarchist movement and strengthen contacts between its members. We strive for integration of anarchist circles and – through the exchange of experiences and mutual education – wish to introduce and promote anarchist thought and social practice in all their various shapes and forms, reaching a wide-ranging audience.
During the two-day conference we will have a chance to examine a broad spectrum of current issues and reflect on the perspective of our future activities, their goals and possibilities for action.
On 1st May we are taking to the streets to put the theory into practice through action! By returning to the original meaning and ideals that this date represents, we refer to the long tradition of workers’ movements. Although it has been over 100 years since the beginning of the struggle for such fundamental rights as 8-hour workday, they are still being breached. On that day we shall manifest workers’ pride and call for self-organisation and solidarity.
Details about the programme and venue coming soon!
For more information and updates visit us at kongresono.bzzz.net.
* The conference will be held in Polish. For non-Polish speakers we can provide whispered interpreting (Polish → English).

No Prison – No State!
Anti-Authoritarian days against the prison society in Hamburg
8th-11th October, 2015
Whilst we are working, consuming, functioning… they hold the cage we`re
Life under democratic regimes are dominated by a continuous process of
adaption to the problems and developments of the system.
The state permanently reflects and improves itself, trying to keep up a
civic discourse through offering so-called alternatives and reforms.
This is supposed to destroy the basis for unrest and resistance and to
many it legitimates strong repressive answers to such rebellious
This phenomenon can be found in almost every aspect of modern life. The
illusion of participation is one of their strongest weapons, and
together with the ongoing expansion of so called rights, democracy is
developing towards a system, in which the ruled are actively
participating in their own oppression.

2nd Fair of Subversive Editions
On September 25, 26, and 27, in Lisbon, the 2nd Fair of Subversive Editions will return. We want this to once again be an open space for debate and the exchange of ideas critical of this reality we wish to subvert. We continue to believe that books, magazines, periodicals, zines, music, video, and debates are still important vehicles in the assault on this society that we reject, and in the search for alternatives that free us from the relations of domination it is based on. If you participate in a publishing group, bookstore, distro of subversive and non-party material, we invite you to come and participate.
To reserve your space at the Fair of Subversive Editions contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Fennovoima Energy Company is starting to construct a nuclear power
plant in Pyhäjoki, a nice, quiet and small village in the northwest of
During the second half of April, Fennovoima cut 95 hectares of very
special coastal forest at the construction area. They didn’t wait for a
month for the legal permission to clear cut the landscape. Instead,

The forest was a home for several rare birds and other species. Nests of
endangered white-backed woodpeckers (Dendrocopos leucotos) were

compañero anarquista Mauricio Morales durante aquel 22 de Mayo del 2009,

de la Escuela de Gendarmeria.
Desde esa fecha hasta hoy, año tras año, una serie de actividades y
gestos a lo largo y ancho del mundo se expanden combatiendo el olvido y
transformando en presente de acción el recuerdo revolucionario. (more…)

June 8th – 21st 2015
Energy company Fennovoima intends to start building a new nuclear power plant at the ecologically valuable Hanhikivi cape in Pyhäjoki, in Northern Ostrobothnia of Finland. Join us to stop the construction of this 100 000 year lasting problem, at its beginning!
Finnish energy policy is still stuck in the centralized production mode, and attempts to provide more nuclear power as a climate friendly solution, hiding the fact that nuclear power is an enemy of more sustainable and egalitarian forms of decentralized renewables. Decentralized and horizontal production of energy is just one part of the more equal society we are aiming for. The ecological crisis, and the social crisis in general, requires us to demolish the current model of economy and build alternatives where production provides for everyone’s needs.
A struggle against one irresponsible project is part of the global struggle for conditions of life itself. In recent years, socially and ecologically destructive projects have been stopped by the political power of the people joining forces to overturn political decisions. It is time to realize that also in Finland the acts of the people can be stronger than the words of politicians in making history. (more…)
