(en) Russia, Avtonom 26, 27 English summary

Date Mon, 11 Dec 2006 17:18:48 +0200

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 8 cities of Russia and Belarus, and supporters and friends in Kazakhstan and Ukraine. It was not planned intent in the beginning, but eventually both issue 26, and the G8 special issue 27 were out of print in July. Issue 26 is a theme issue on homophobia, it was inspired from heated discussion inside our movement on question how much we should support banned Moscow pride '06, which was attempted to be organised in last May, and how much we should support LGBT movement in general. 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 Nizhniy 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...
