(en) Czech, afed: DIY karneval - A brief look at the Saturday street tekno happening on the topic of women's rights [machine translation]

Date Sat, 29 Sep 2018 09:42:14 +0300


In the last year he revived after several years DIY Carnival. This was a very successful event, attended by several thousand people. Who likes this format of action full of music and fun, united with a certain message, certainly welcomed that the carnival was also held this year, specifically on Saturday, September 22nd. However, it should be noted beforehand that this year's participation was far from that of the previous year. ---- This time, women's rights were the main theme of the carnival. And reason? "Many people will tell you that the fight against women's rights is a success for us and that discrimination and violence against women are a thing of the past. They often forget about such details, for example, that the Czech Republic still leads the front lines in different pay for the same work for women and men. That most of the management positions are occupied by men. And that almost every woman encountered a variety of sexual harassment or violence. Although the freetekno community from which DIY carnival originated, it is referred to as the most open-minded female of the present subcultures, hand to heart, even here the ratios are not ideal. For these reasons, we want to dedicate this year to women and their efforts in the fair world. "

The start of the event was announced on the right noon, but at that time only a few people were in front of the Cross Club, and the larger groups were just uniformed and un-uniformed police officers. But around the other, there were several hundred people, and others were growing. Some were preparing costumes, others were preparing sound systems for Prague, playing dun-ding music and a pleasant atmosphere. With some ideological awareness, the Anarchist Federation distro.

Around the third, everything was set to go into the streets. The route did not differ much from last year's. After crossing the Štefánik Bridge, he headed for the Old Town Square, then to the Republic Square, so that those who could carry the march to the end docked at Stvanica.

Although it was a weaker carnival, it still has its place in underground events, demonstrating the power of free and bottom-up culture that is not afraid to comment on political issues with its natural anti-racism and anti-seismism.
