Szolidaritási nyilatkozat a palesztinok küzdelmével

May 22, 2021

Ez a nyilatkozat eredetileg a LeftEast portálon jelent meg angolul és a Szabad Oldalak kollektíva tagjai csatlakoznak a szövegben megfogalmazott üzenethez és követelésekhez.  Egyértelműen elítéljük Izrael állam palesztinokkal szembeni erőszakos gyarmati törekvéseinek napjainkban folyó eszkalációját, amelynek legutóbbi megnyilvánulása családok erőszakos kilakoltatása volt a megszállás alatt levő kelet-jeruzsálemi Sheikh Jarrah városnegyedből, a hitüket gyakorlók elleni támadások […]

May 7, 2021

Bună: Can you tell us a few words about the situation with the refugees in Timișoara?  FnB Timișoara: I think that the refugees crossing the border started to be more and more numerous in November 2020. As the border with Croatia was closed, they tried to find another route, through Romania and then Hungary. The […]

Szolidáris lakhatás mint alternatíva a lakhatási válságra: Vrijcoop

March 22, 2021

A Vrijcoop holland bérházhálózatot 2015-ben alapították. Célja, hogy társprojektjei és azok tagjai számára szolidáris lakhatást biztosítson. A szolidáris lakhatás gondolata és igénye egyrészt a foglaltház-mozgalom történetéből származik, amely arra törekedett, hogy az elhagyott, kiürült ingatlanokat közösségi és kollektív terekké alakítsa, illetve hogy visszacsatolja azokat a kulturális, közösségi és/vagy lakhatási körforgásba – másrészt pedig annak a […]

Coarse portrait of an ordinary agro-nihilist (M.E.K.A.N.)

November 21, 2020

I find it amusing to morph something as humourless and self-important as “nihilism” into something self-ironic and ambivalent and, in this form, to harness it to my own projects. This mutant nihilism aims to be fluid, jolly, playful and gregarious and leaves behind the carceral Luna Park of the city to invent games about autonomy on the land.

There will be no revolution, just a revolution

April 2, 2020

We have failed to recognize the failures of our societies, of our own desires and wants, our dreams and hopes – manufactured elsewhere –, and that of the systems that structure our world. Although there have been numerous voices telling us that we are heading off a cliff, we did not heed their warnings, nor […]

Oh, how they beg!

March 15, 2020

Yes, you’ve probably heard them on TV, on the radio, or read about their pitiful cries on financial sites, in open letters addressed to government officials through social media sites. Yes, you know about them. They didn’t plan for this crisis, they never expected this. Things were going well for them, how could they have […]

Love in the time of Coronavirus

March 14, 2020

Pandemic and coronavirus (Covid-19) are the words used almost everywhere around the world. The fear is real and it’s spreading like wildfire with every passing second. But, in times of panic and fear, we should not fall prey to the fearmongers who profit off the disgusting panic shows they put on tv or on different […]

Kings, queens and the lot

January 14, 2020

So through individual action and collective alternatives we may find ourselves not needing royal institutions any more – we will get to states in other posts –, leaving them to decay in their castles and mansions and, maybe in the future, transfer them into museums for future generations to see our progress.

War, what is it good for?

January 12, 2020

Almost a week ago the Whitehouse announced that it had successfully conducted a drone attack in which general Quasem Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, was killed. Just a few days ago, national outlets from Iran stated that the country’s air forces launched numerous ground to ground missiles targeting two American bases in Iraq.

Book review: Jesse COHN, “Underground Passages. Anarchist resistance culture, 1848-2011”

September 17, 2019

Anarchism seems to have attracted a steady growing interest since the late nineties. The number and quality of studies since, dedicated to the various facets of a movement previously and for a long time relegated to oblivion or derision, bear solid testimony to an apparently newly discovered relevance of the subject, translated both in its […]

Panait Mușoiu – the anarchist in his den

September 2, 2019

Panait Mușoiu (1864-1944) lived for a while on an alleyway next to Văcărești Street. A sort of Thoreau from the slums of Bucharest, “Pious Panait” as his friends jokingly called him was one of the shabby Jewish neighbourhood’s most familiar faces. Some kind of an eccentric wiseman, the anarchist Mușoiu gained the admiration of those […]

Petite histoire du mouvement libertaire roumain

June 22, 2019

Notice La langue française est une des langues de la naissance de l’anarchisme et de ses premières formulations. Pour la plupart des anarchistes roumains, elle a été vraiment la langue de „l’anarchie”. C’est justement par son intermédiaire que les idées anarchistes ont été découvertes, explorées et circulées au début en Roumanie. Les liens entre les […]

(Az eredeti cikk román nyelven készült és 2018. december 14-én jelent meg) Budapesten napok óta több ezer felháborodott diák és szakszervezeti tag tüntet azellen a törvénymódosítás ellen, amelyet a magyar miniszterelnök támogatott és, amelyet a parlament hagyott jóvá. A módosítás olyan jogokkal ruházza fel a munkaadókat, amelyeknek megfelelően a munkavállalókat akár évi 400 óra túlórázásra […]
