(en) Czech, afed.cz: Nevolo nikoho! -- The Anarchist Federation joined the anti-authoritarian appeal calling for a boycott of elections and decentralized actions revealing electoral fraud. [machine translation]

This year, elections are held in the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament on 20-21 October. You will not see most of the anarchists and anarchists at the ballot box unless they are just throwing in white ballots to symbolize what they need a representative for their lives - none. Although we are pushing for a critical election absenteeism, we do not have to blame anyone when they go to the polls to choose so-called lesser evil - if they are aware of what this step means. That is, by inserting a ticket for lesser evil nothing changes, at best, the situation of survival in capitalist marathism will not deteriorate much, but the nature of the system will be preserved. ---- For most of us, however, this step is by adopting rules that have been dictated to us; rules for a game that can not be won, as these rules have already set their winners ahead. Putting a ticket in the bourgeois democracy is the confirmation of it. It is not a winning political party, it is not a "holiday of democracy," as we are embarrassed, it is only a confirmation of the legitimacy of the ruling regime.

We do not like to play this game. Likewise, we do not mean to look quietly and stand up with our hands. We have our vision of a free and self-governing society. We are guided by the principles of equality, freedom, cooperation and solidarity, which are the direct opposite of the capitalist practice of inequality, social oppression and indiscriminate competition among individuals. Capitalism and its sacred bodies of inviolable private property are the crap that keeps most of the company in pursuit of earnings, either for survival, the achievement of gilding, or the keeping of its head over the debt trap. And so far, a party that barely packed one panel, lives in surplus and decides about the lives and future of others. And the politicians elected during the election circus such a world shield and keep up.

Still, elections are a good opportunity for free-minded people; opportunities to detect and attack the entire electoral fraud; the opportunity to call for direct action and to take people back to their lives instead of giving them as an offering to the altar hidden behind the ball.

Everybody can engage in the campaign of decentralized anti-election actions, for example by destroying or altering electoral propaganda, spreading their own materials, performing different types of performances, banners, graffiti, or picking up the counter-election number of the A3 wall paper that we released on the occasion of this year's election.

We do not need any representatives to dictate what we can or can not do!
