There will be no revolution, just a revolution

April 2, 2020 / #Blog

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 / #Blog

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 / #Blog

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.

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

September 17, 2019 / #Blog

Panait Mușoiu – the anarchist in his den

September 2, 2019 / #Blog

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 / #Blog

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”.
