‘The heuristic capacity of Anarchy’ – Gustavo Rodriguez

Monday, July 27th, 2020

Jack Halberstam, a renown queer theorist, committed to the “anti-social project” and active contrasexual militant, begins his book The Queer Art of Failure[1], with an irreverent and fun excerpt, taken from the 20th episode of the 1st season of SpongeBob, which invites us to reflect:

Mr. Krabs: And just when you think you found the island of milk and honey they grab you by the britches…and haul you way up high. Then higher, and higher, and higher until you’re hauled up to the surface flopping and gasping for air. And then they cook ya, and then they eat ya, or worse…
SpongeBob (terrified): What could be worse than that?
Mr. Krabs (in a low voice): Gift shops.[2] (more…)

Queer without Fear – About Homophobic Repression in Poland

Monday, July 27th, 2020

We need about 4,000 euros for lawyers – now, and another 4,000 for the queer campaign we want to start next month. All raising funds above this amount will be donated to the Polish Anarchist Black Cross and to anti-repressive activities.

We’re “Stop Bullshit” – we’re a radical, feminist and queer collective.

We work for LGBTQ+ – smart, educated, brave, and most of all- with a causative power. We differ from the rest of LGBTQ+ groups in Poland on account of our shameless mugs, unapologetic nature, and methods which neither TVP.info ( “News” station affiliated with the government), nor the rest of right-wing asshats would dare to dream about. Everything we’ve done here results from the anger in response to the cruel, harmful, iIl-conceived actions of the fanatics. You can learn more on our facebook, by watching videos on our youtube or by reading this whip-round.

RECENT EVENTS:

On the morning of July 14, police in plain clothes came to the flat in which Margot stayed in as a guest. They first threatened to bust the door, and when they were let in they didn’t give a reason for their intrusion, nor allowed their information to be written down. Then they brutally dragged Margot out of the flat in her pyjamas (without shoes, socks or a sweatshirt), and took her to an unmarked car, threatening her with abuse and death, calling her a f*ggot and a loser. Only after countless of people and NGOs intervened, did the D.A. reveal that Margot was charged in connection with the destruction of a homophobic truck.

The activist was held up all night, and released the next day by the court, without arrest. Now she needs funds for herself and other people at risk, as well as for further actions of her collective.
