(en) Czech, afed: First May 2018 -- An overview of this May Day event, attended by anarchists and anarchists. [machine translation]

Date Wed, 9 May 2018 23:16:30 +0300


Every year, at the First May, we commemorate the first demonstration in Prague on Strelecký Island, which took place here in 1890. It was not the same this year. On that occasion, the Anarchist Federation (AF) organized a free-of-charge meeting on the island that was supposed to be a traditional reminder of the 128-year-old event and what led to it - the struggle of the Chicago workers for eight hours of work and the subsequent execution of anarchist activists. At the same time, the event should provide room for mutual meetings and informal debates and become the starting point for further activities on this holiday day. ---- Shooting Island ---- After noon, the first anarchists and anarchists began to shout at Strelecký Island. After some time, some 60 people of all ages ranged from retirees to small caps. The pleasant sunny weather and the shade of the local trees created a pleasant picnic atmosphere. While the debating and listening participants of the anarchist gathering debated, the program started with a songwriter who is already an inseparable part of these annual meetings at Srelák. Meanwhile, the candidates could browse the materials produced by the AF Publishing House . The novel, which was to be dismantled here, was the wall paper Chudás , published by the Prague Solidarity Network SOL! S, and the title of the letter follows the anarchist fourteenth daybook, which started at the beginning of the 20th century.

After the production of music, the next program of the meeting and other events that took place at the First May in Prague and somehow relate to legitimate social requirements or are directly organized within the anarchist movement followed.

AF member then read the speechorganizing organization in which he clearly expressed the positions of the anarchists and what the first May means. He said that although it is not possible to add "living mass struggles to improve the conditions of working, unemployed, retired, students and other underprivileged people on this day", it is not the only reason to give up on the vision of a free and self-governing society. Attention then turned to the social struggles that are taking place in France and emphasized the idea of anarchist internationalism. In this context, it was not possible to condemn the nationalist tendencies and the backwardness of the Czech parliamentary left. The speech ended with a statement: "We refuse to participate in the current order, where short-term profits take precedence over the urgency of the climate tragedy, weapons trade in front of people's lives, cheap goods before working conditions, police repression against free-lance alternatives. We did not choose capitalism. Our choice is a free and self-governing society without unnatural authority. "

The word of speech could be taken in the form of a leaflet, just like the last issue of the A3 wall paper . A moment later, the attendants went to a commemorative plaque commemorating the 1890s demonstration and laid flowers here on the black and red flag. Subsequently, it was freely debated, and instead of the second hour it was gradually emptied.

For dignified living

Most of the people were then moved by the National Class to the nearby Jungmannovo Square, where Socialist Solidarity, Alternativa from the bottom, and the Bydlet-to-live initiative "Demonstration for Affordable Housing and Decent Salary" held two hours. There were about 200 people gathered at the opening speeches headed by the "Flats for People, Not for Profit" Transparency, and the chanting of "Housing is the Right" on the march through the center of the city notably affected by gentrification.

Several stops were made along the way to further thematic speeches, and the whole event was concluded at the Prague City Hall.

The demonstration was quiet. There was a meal from Food Not Bombs, which was eloquently reflected in the exquisite exposition of luxury jewelery before.

In front of Milada, behind Milada

Since 16.00, Prague has begun another event, a memorial meeting in front of the former squat Milada. At the First May we reminded the 20th anniversary of the casting of this dilapidated villa.

At that time, a group of anarchists who had been expelled from the squad Zenklovka several months earlier, breathed new life. Several times, its residents had to face police attacks and buzzing, the fatal house became in 2009, when he was brutally exterminated with the assistance of the police by a private security guard and for sure devastated enough to become uninhabitable. And now it was a really sad look at the building, where a lot of people were changing, hundreds of concerts and other cultural events took place here.

Over the course of the afternoon, more than 50 people showed up, including some of those who were in the recovery of the villa in 1998. There was a distro AF Publishing House, and small children were running around. In addition, the stories associated with the Milada and activism at the time of her occupation came to fruition.

This picnic atmosphere greatly contrasted with the inadequate deployment of police forces, including the secret and tracking car. Perhaps the fizzles had also come to remember - for them, during the demolition of the interior of the squat, the stolen cash, the exciting atmosphere of the percussion streets, etc. Fortunately they stayed with memories and made no trouble. After some time, they probably understood the needlessness of their actions, so they first recalled anton, then the heavy-haired supplies, and finally remained the eye of a big brother and a group of "secret" police warders.

Screening

And who did not have enough at the First May, he could go to the Cross Club in Holešovice, which is a mile away from Milada. Here was the ninth part of the anarchist documentary show Trouble from the sub.media team. He, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the 1968 uprising in the world, focused on current student movements. The film mainly discussed the state and potential of the student movement in our country.

In Pilsen against the Nazis

The opportunity to go to the streets was not only in Prague. For example, the Republican Square in Plzen was given the opportunity of the ultra-lawmakers under the auspices of the Workers 'Party of Social Justice, the Workers' Youth and the Bloc against Islamization. Vandas reported for a dozen of his remaining, tragic-looking, but loyal, supporters of the red doubledecker. The reason for this "stage" multi-cultural choice is not known to us, but only illustrated the tragicomicity of the whole encounter of the party, which already has its dubious glory when hundreds of neo-Nazis supported it in the streets behind. She also worked on a bus in a group of military uniforms.

There were several dozens of predominantly local anti-racists with signs such as "Drag the drop from my plate", "We do not want in Pilsen", "Violence and racism are not solved", "White pride, black conscience", etc.

It did not like the two Vandas, who did not finish their run and ended up in the hands of the heavy boys. Those who then surrounded the anti-fascists and made them free movement.
