hello, we are some people from vienna, who are really fucked up with the
situation here. The right winged government of austria has established their
repressive power for 5 years now. In may 2005, they celebrate the nniversary
of 50 years of the so called state treaty (sovereignty of austria, retreat
of allied "occupation troops"...), and 10 years of EU membership.
Apart from cutting social systems, introducing racist laws and encouraging a
xenophobic mentality, which lead to the murder of several people, they tried
(and succeeded) to make life much harder for everyone who raises his/her
voice against injustice. Political and social institutions are highly
endangered, many projects depending on public subsidies faced a total cut of
their financial contribution. Migrants newspaper and advisory boards had to
close as well as a progressive netculture institute. Women advisory boards
and alternative cultural initiatives are struggling. Also those not
dependent on subventions are threatened by repression and economic
"compulsions", particularly the only squat (EKH) in austria has been
sold by the communist party to some extreme right-wing speculator...

We know that these deteriorations are taking place all over europe,
everywhere we hear about the repression and destruction of progressive
movements and infrastructure.
Its another time to unite and fight !!!!!!!!
For this we are preparing a congress and different actions, please help
us and get involved.
and spread and publish this information:

Vienna Congress 2005

We call all of you out for arranging an international, left-radical
gathering together with us!

From 13th to 17th of may 2005 we want to make Vienna to our starting point
for a political and social reorganization of Europe according to our own
interests and needs!
The meetings are going to deal with various topics and our aim is to create
an european network of different groups as well as an exchange of
information and experiences and furthermore discussions about political
developments and matters.
Events and actions in public space are supposed to open up the city for us
and will point out our requests and meanings to the public.
We prefer decentralized organisation and realization. This should guarantee
open discussions on different topics and the biggest possible room in our
activities, so that all people are able to bring in their own interests
and needs. Furthermore there will be space for cultural events.

In preparation are different events (workshops, discussions, lectures)
about following topics:

suppression (controlmania, criminalization, legal support, non-commercial
cultural happenings)
squatting (autonomous centers, history, past and present struggles, present
situations, experiences, perspectives, legal foundations)
media and communication (oppression in the net, commercializing, corporate
vs. indymedia, secure data transfer, newspaper & radio workshops, publix
cinema) fascism/anti-fascism (theory and practice, fascism-theories, migration,
governmental fascism)
anti capitalist movements (protests, direct action, criminalization)
anarchy (theory, real life)
sexism and heterosexism, riot grrrls
animal rights, drug policy
DIY (do it yourself, theory, practice, collectives)

furthermore are planned:
a women conference, events according the topics left-communism, trotzkism,
industrial dispute, class struggle, denazification in austria, (political)
situation in eastern europe, Food not Bombs the convention is dancing!!!
first of all at free parties and open air concerts, also planned are
exhibitions, lectures, performances, public cooking and a book/lp/cd

In public space various meetings, actions and a demonstration are

you are invited to involve yourself in preparation and scheduling ,
according to the topics, but also logistic (spatial space, material and
propagandistic) help would be appreciated.

the first public meeting will take place on the 16.01.2005, 3:30 pm at
Arena, Baumgasse 80, 1030 Vienna.

a webpage with further information will follow soon!!
just have a look on http://at.indymedia.org
the city is ours!! Just take it!!!

Editor Qustion: Hi People Are you clearly within the
antiauthoritarian anticapitalist spectrum, or it is
wider and welcom authoritarians of the left?

mo nowak Answer: according to your worries and question:
the idea of the whole thing:
the vienna congress is meant to be an international meeting of radical
leftwing groups, organizations and people. We`d like to invite and adress
people and groups with antiauthoritarian character and system-overthrowing
ideals, seeing ourselves as a part of this movement, too. Still there should
be space for critically discussing a wider range of political ideas and
ideologies as well as discussing state implemented forms of oppression,
heterosexism, housing... and such.
