Dear friends, welcome to spring issue of Avtonom... this year we are
turning 10 years, wait for some celebrations to come!
Avtonom is a pseudo-quarterly journal by of Autonomous Action, which
developed from a network to a libertarian communist federation January
2002, after two years of existence. Currently Autonomous Action has
local groups in 13 cities of Russia and Armenia, and supporters and
friends in Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.
It is very difficult to get foreign radical press and texts in Russia, so we
are interested to expand our mailing list - if you know people who would be
interested to read our materials, please contact them for us! Currently
German correspondence is done by Nizhni Novgorod section, Italian and
Spanish by our members in Tyumen and all other languages in in Moscow -
please send press with respective languages to cities dealing with
respective correspondence. In another hand, mailing out is so expensive that
we would like to post our papers only to people who understand what is
written in them...
