(en) Europe, AbolishingBB #23 is out right on time!

Date Sat, 04 Feb 2006 18:39:22 +0200

Thank to financial support of various anarchist structures (especially of
London groups and projects - Active Distribution, 56@ Anarchist Infoshop and
Wombles) the new issue of “Abolishing the Borders from Below – an anarchist
journal from Eastern Europe” has reached daily light right on time again.
Just to let you know: editorial collective of AbolishingBB faces serious
financial problems and the regular publishing of the journal is currently
very depended on the support from outside. Structures mentioned above (and
some more) have covered this time about 60% of the costs of publishing. In
this place we appeal to anarchist structures world wide to give us some more
support in upcoming months until we will be able to improve our financial
situation. We know already that some anarchist collectives in France,
Croatia, Slovenia and Germany are planning some benefit events for
AbolishingBB in the upcoming weeks – it is very important and encouraging
news for us. It allows us to plan and work on next issues of the journal
without being afraid that when ready we could never print them and
distribute them.

The new February 2006 issue of journal brings again 60 pages of news from
barbarian eastern Europe from which about a half are dedicated to the
leading-topic of this issue which is (quoting slogan placed on the cover)
“Lets Dismantle Patriarchy – Privilege, Hierarchy, Authority and Coercion”
and deals with patriarchy and its diverse interconnections and ties to other
social issues. You will find there 16 different texts on that topic written
by east-European anarchists. Texts which could be roughly partitioned into
four fields:
- analysis of patriarchy and capitalist society;
- presentation and analysis of feminist, women’s, gay-lesbian movements;
- presentation of various anarchist, libertarian and emancipative
structures and its problematic attitudes and approaches towards the
patriarchal reality (including self-critical estimations);
- examples of anarchist and emancipative struggles against the chains of
patriarchy; presentation of progressive libertarian ideas and alternative

All articles are written of course from east European perspective.

There are some more interesting materials in this issue too:
- statement of Polish Anarchist Federation towards attempts of “restoring of
traditional values” by new rightwing polish government;
- history of the Russian Animal Liberation Front;
- report from Macedonia on multiculturalism and forced processes of
westernisation, professionalization and democratization of society;
- reports of east European Anarchist Black Cross groups;
- Interview with Subwar Collective from Belgrade about their Food Not Bombs
- Various reports from “labour struggles” and antifascist resistance;
- 10 years of Czech Antifascist Action;
- the story of Gallery Squat in St.Petersburg;
- anti g8-SPB-2006 poster;
- more news, columns and announcements of upcoming anarchists and
emancipative events;

AbolishingBB #23 is to get in about 150 libertarian distributions around the
world from about 8 of February. Please spread this news around. Traditional
black and red greetings from …
