“Now its definitely time to act” – Interview with a member of the anti authoritarian squad [Ukraine]

After the war began, many of our comrades in Kyiv became either volunteers or members of the Anti-Authoritarian Squad within the Territorial Defense. Now the squad is mainly engaged in training and guard duty. When the enemy was still in the Kyiv region, the guys went to frontline positions to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU) with surveillance from drones, participated in transporting refugees through the green corridor, and went out on calls from citizens about sabotage groups.

Ukraine: Antifascist action in the midst of war, part 1

In March, Anton, a friend of mine, told me about his intention to travel to Kiev. We agreed to stay in touch, and before his departure came up with the idea of collecting his experiences, thoughts and encounters into a series of articles that we could use to keep anarchist and anti-authoritarian comrades updated on the situation of anarchists in Ukraine in the midst of conflict. We reasoned that it would be more practical to base the articles on interviews of Anton by me, to allow him to focus on his other activities there. The final text, the one you’re reading here, has been checked and approved by Anton. This is the first article of the series.

“The Left in the West must rethink” — a conversation with Taras Bilous

“If leftists continue to blame NATO for the Russian invasion, they only show that they have not grasped the changed situation,” says Taras Bilous. The editor of the left-wing Ukrainian magazine Commons wrote a letter to the left in the West shortly after the war began. In it, he criticized the fact that the people in the Eastern European states and their political ideas, but also Putin’s aggressive imperialism, do not seem to exist for the left in the West, which is fixated on NATO. Taras Bilous has stayed in Kyiv and joined an anarchist group that organizes aid activities and builds its own defense unit. In this interview, he talks about how the war has changed his political perspective, what possible developments he sees, and what the left in the West needs to rethink. The interview took place on March 8, Oksana Dutchak translated. Oksana Dutchak is a sociologist and researcher in the fields of labor issues and gender inequality and also an editor at Commons. She has left Kyiv and is currently in western Ukraine.

“After 65 days on hunger strike, I was, as they said, a bag full of bones” [Dimitris Koufontinas, Greece]

One year after the beginning of last year’s hunger strike, Dimitris Koufontinas gave the first interview since those days to ‘The Press Project’. We publish here a translation. From our point of view, the interview marks the similarities, but also the differences between the current that Dimitris represents and those to which we feel connected, or not, as in the case of the Shining Path from Peru. However, our hearts will always be with those who are imprisoned in the dungeons of our mortal enemies. Sunzi Bingfa.

Ending Climate Change “Has to Come From Mass Popular Action,” Not Politicians – An Interview With Noam Chomsky

We republished this interview with Noam Chomsky, although we have different views about some of the things Chomsky said during this conversation, like for instance “The immediate crises [are] crises of survival [and] will have to be dealt with within more or less the existing institutions.” We don’t think the existing institutions are capable of dealing with the immediate crises. But we think its still an interesting read. Enough14.
