(en) Romania: LoveKills Anarcha-Feminist Festival #4 Camp!) - July 27- August 2, 2009

Date Mon, 09 Feb 2009 22:54:42 +0200

LoveKills Collective intends to bring about the fourth edition of LoveKills Festival in
the summer of 2009. We will organize again the anarcha-feminist gathering, but this time
we would like to organize it as a one week camp. The camp will take place in the mountains
(west of Romania, Socolari village) between 27 july – 02 august 2009. Our experience with
the previous editions and the impact they had, above all in the local context, conferred
us not only with the motivation but also with the strength to keep on organizing such an
event. We believe and we feel that organizing such gatherings contributes to a
stabilization and activation of the anarcha-feminist community, especially in the
eastern-european area. Our passion for freedom and our desire to achieve a society free of
the violent patriarchal oppression are stimulating us in taking another step forward in
the struggle to abolish patriarchy! This is why we are inviting everyone interested in
joining and supporting us (we will need a great deal of support!!) to contact
(lovekills@riseup. net) for further information. The program of the camp is also up to the
participants to shape and organize, meaning that everyone is invited to register (in
advance of course) for workshops/presentat ions/lectures/ exhibitions/ performances and so

Heteronormative love kills. Love relationships perceived and lived in terms of
heteronormativity require the ultimate restriction of one’s freedom of living her/his life
without restraints, one’s freedom of true loving. Jealousy and possessiveness, emotional
pressure and blackmail, dictating one’s feelings and the way they should be expressed, are
instances met almost all the time in monogamous relationships and they are restraining the
individual’s sphere of enjoying other kinds of relationships – of friendship, love,
mutuality and so on – others then the one and only shared with the other person. Very
often this love you are sharing with the opposite gender is nourishing and is brutally
imposing beauty standards imprisoning the other one in sexist stereotypes.

Your love for animals kills. The fact that you have adopted a dog/cat or any other pet
from a shelter does not award you the status of friend of animals, as long as at your
dinner there is corpse lieing in your plate, a corpse that have been subjected to
terrifying ordeals, just so that you may satisfy your gustative papilas; as long as in
your wardrobe an argentinean fox is being hung, a fox that have been skinned alive just so
that you can satisfy your megalomania; and as long as you are keeping in cages wild
animals just so that you can delude your alienation and misery of your humankind. Your
love for animals kills animals.

Love for your GOD kills. Throughout history GODS have planned and ordered the most bloody
massacres, the killing of thousands of people just because they were not worshiping and
blindly accepting the blatant abuses done by their churches, had burned on stake and
tortured women because unjustified fear of women was hunting them in nightmares.

Love for your country kills. Nationalism is a stove inside which misery is being yeasted.
And love for an abstract notion such as nation is canceling first of all your affiliation
to an international humanity, it is generating xenophobia, it is arousing wars and killing
thousands of people.

Your love for a superior race kills. “Race” is an imagined entity. “Race” has no
biological basis. There has been determined only one race: THE HUMAN RACE! But your love
for a certain race, your preference for a certain skin color is dehumanizing you and
through segregation, discrimination and exploitation it is opening the path towards genocide.
