(en) freedom news: Russia: Anarchists illegally protest for revolution centenary, World, Nov 9th

Date Mon, 13 Nov 2017 14:32:00 +0200


This year Leninists worldwide have been celebrating the victory of the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution but in Russia the anarchists came out to remember the event from a different perspective, that of an opportunity stolen and a promise yet to be. ---- Anarchists were once again roaming the streets of Moscow on November 6th, illegally marching on the centenary of the revolution despite a heavy police presence in the capital. They reported: ---- Near Chistye Prudy metro station, the anarchists unfurled a banner that read: ‘Dictatorship, Poverty and Corruption, Only One Way Out - Revolution!', and briskly marched through the dark streets yelling out slogans calling for class struggle, solidarity, social revolution and the construction of a new, just world.

The action was not permitted - we do not consider it necessary to ask the authorities for permission to march in the street. We can walk and breathe more freely without the accompaniment of a police convoy. Also, in the current conditions of the dictatorship, people are encouraged to participate in actions coordinated by the authorities, where all participants will be recorded and monitored by the police - stupidity and provocation.

Remember, the real social revolution of liberation which the anarchists and revolutionaries of the past dreamed of is not left in the past, but is waiting in the future. Revolution is the only solution to solve all the contradictions and problems that the capitalist system generates. The struggle against individual manifestations of capitalism and the state such as poverty, corruption, police lawlessness and the arbitrariness of the authorities have no prospects unless we take into account the true source of social ills - the state and capitalism.

Otherwise, when trying to solve social contradictions by changing government without destroying the state and creating a new democratic system, new thieves and dictators will simply replace the old ones - which is proven by the experiences of the two revolutions of 1917. And of course this needs to be taken into account in the future.
