This evening an anarchist from Ukraine will come to share with us his knowledge about the current political situation in the country. What happened in Winter of last year in Kiev? What is the Maidan and who were the people participating in it? What became the reason for the conflict in Eastern Ukraine? What is going on there right now and who is participating in the conflict? Who are the famous nazis from Ukraine and are they are so big as some media are reporting?

The presentation will be in English, translation into German will be provided for those who need it.

Background: A year ago social and political protests started in Ukraine. Hundreds of thousands of people went on the streets. As the result of the conflict that lasted for several months the president fled the country and the opposition took over the power. Around 100 demonstrators were killed only in Kiev. The Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) became a symbol of the struggle against the government. Later on in the Eastern part of the country pro-Russian people started organizing protests against the Maidan movement. As a result of these protests the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) and Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR) were formed and they declared independence from the Kiev authorities. Separatists backed by the Russian government are now at war with the Ukrainian government.

Soli-event within the “International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners”

All around the world there are many people who were incarcerated by the states for their political struggle. They are claimed to be enemies of the society and for that are locked down in cells where they have to spend time on their own or with people who got the same label.

While those people are spending their time in Jail we are continuing our lives as if nothing had happened. However we do share our dreams with those people. We do strive for the same goals and the fact that they were caught by the repressiv system should not destroy the comradeship that is built withing our political movements.

We all know that people in prisons need support. Daily, hourly they have to struggle with the authority and we can help them in that with our support.

As part of the global week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners we will have an evening where you will hear the stories of anarchists who were imprisoned for different terms and are now separated from their comrades. We will write letters of support to the people all around the world to let them know they are not alone and they were not forgotten.

If you wanna introduce a special person with their story, just bring it with you.
