Any types of barriers – to start from the stairs, through the language and way of communicating/participating to end up with technical obstacles. And the structural ones! Economical, cultural, legal. Is the activism place for white, cis and abled bodies only?
Let’s proof together it is not. Let’s talk, learn and investigate how to increase the accessibility in our movements. Let’s hang out to build the connections, we are stronger together.
100 places in Poland declared themselves as “LGBT-free zones”. Queers are not welcome there. In 2015 the PiS party came with nearly 40% of the votes into government for whom homo-and transphobia is a fundamental part of their ideology. In spite of this political climate activists took the streets and created public form of protest like creatively changing monuments. In the last years Germany witnessed an uprise in anti-queer-networks like the “Demo für Alle” (March for all) were right and christian groups organised nationwide protest.
In the newly adjusted ESC online format, volunteers have put together a participatory virtual program for the time until we can meet again.
Expanding on the topic of the previous online discussion where we shared the ways in which we currently collectively take care of each other, we want to let our imagination lose and explore wild ideas that might be too out there for our current world. No idea is too wild! Perhaps you’ve read something that poked your interest? You’ve watched a film or listened to music that inspired you? Let’s explore what makes our imagination run!
In these difficult times it is more important than ever to dream big and different and to support each other in our wildest dreams!
For over three months, people in Belarus have been fighting against the authoritarian regime.
Since the first days of the uprising, anarchists have been actively participating in street demonstrations and various initiatives in their places of residence. Activists are agitating for self-organization and decentralized protest. Some organized a partisan group. The determination and persistency of anarchist movement of the country has made us one of the most organized political forces in the fight against the dictatorship.
