The invasion of Ukraine is part of a large-scale offensive by an authoritarian regime driven by the sinister conviction that it must remake the entire world order in its own image. This offensive is directed not just against one country, but against everything that, in Putin’s eyes and in those of his followers, embodies the „degenerate West“. This includes, in particular, „sexual decadence,“ i.e. homosexuality, and so-called gender ideology, as well as the purported disintegration of „traditional cultural values.” Underpinning this is an openly fascist ideology, as the Moscow sociologist Greg Yudin, for one, correctly pointed out.Continue reading False front – To oppose Putinism what is needed is a new emancipatory universalism
An interesting piece by Antti Rautiainen. We don’t share everything in this article, but we think it is an important contribution to the discussion about the war in Ukraine (and beyond) and the position of parts of the left and some anarchists* on this war, especially in Western countries. Enough 14.

Wassenaar. Netherlands. Today (May 25, 2022), Ivicke had a second preliminary injunction hearing (in Dutch: voorlopige voorziening or VoVo for short), to request a suspension of eviction until the higher appeal in our case against the municipality, who want to evict us on the grounds that according to the zoning plan our home should be an office. We already had a first VoVo about this in February. That one we lost, but the judge gave us until the 28th of May before we had to leave. In the meantime, we actually won a civil court case against the owner, because the judge agreed that his plans for Ivicke are nonsense. Our lawyers then managed to get this new case because of that change of circumstances.Continue reading Ivicktion Called Off — But For How Long? [Wassenaar, Netherlands]
