(en) Czech, afed: Revolution at the Clinic - Report from another Existential Party, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. [machine translation]

Date Sat, 25 Nov 2017 08:29:41 +0200

This autumn subsistence party was different in several details from the previous ones. First, it did not take place at the Salé infoshop. We decided to move it to the Clinic and support it by participating in its program while it is working in uncertainty about its further fate as it can be expected that SŽDC, the current owner of the building, will want to rid it of the free and self-governing spirit that is here has been ruling for some years. Another novelty was the absence of a common dinner that always preceded the existential parties in Salé. Still, hungry visitors did not suffer because the bar was prepared with a sheet of baked sweets. ---- The subject of the party traditionally coincided with the theme of the last issue of our anarchist revue, the Great October Revolution. A few days ago, we remembered her centenary. It's been a long time, so it did not bother to wait for an hour from the official beginning of the debate so that everyone could come together to discuss what this historic event means to us today, whether it is worthwhile to remind it and what the lesson may be . She interrupted the musical recollection of the Wabi Danka who died that day.
There were talks about several aspects of the Russian Revolution. First of all, the illusion that he could gradually die, assuming that the existing state structures are taken over and that he will continue to operate under the new regime. Each state has a tendency to confirm and consolidate its power, as was the case with the Bolshevik strategy that led to unprecedented state terror and the exploitation of workers not by specific persons but by the system with its newly created hierarchical structure. We also reflected on the fact that a time-consuming moment can arise from the relatively chaotic and accidental situation of the conquest of the Winter Palace. In one of the partial debates we have partly switched to the theme of the following Existence, which we would like to devote to "new patriotism". Specifically, why in certain historical stages when there is a crisis of existing elites, We also asked how perceptible the revolution is perceived by the different generations and what they mean to them. It has turned out that for those attending high schools it is actually a taboo event about which almost nothing knows and that teachers are afraid to express their own opinion today. Last but not least, we discussed the extent to which the Russian Revolution made changes to the world and inspired the workers' struggle for the years to come, as well as how the socialist idea suffered due to the victory of the Bolsheviks and the subsequent domination of the authoritarian directions of socialism. That is how we have moved to this day and a situation where there is virtually no relevant left-wing project that would not resist the demand for the elimination of capitalism, and was not merely the administrator of the capitalist order, which perhaps takes a little more into account the needs of the working people.
But that did not let us continue with the first tones in the next room of the band. The Existential Party has once again confirmed that it makes sense and that it is important to look for ways to make our publications interactive.
