(en) Czech, afed: November 17th without pathos - Report from the Prague demonstration of the non-parliamentary and anti-authoritarian left [machine translation]

Date Fri, 1 Dec 2017 09:36:26 +0200


Like every year, Prague did not go on November 17 without several public events, referring to the events of 1989, which, in Czechoslovakia, as one of the last East European countries led to the end of a single party's rule. Though it did not show up at the time of the rise of capitalism, in this regime we were lullabies of the songs about the restored freedom and the truth and love that prevailed over lies and hatred. ---- On the Národní trída and Wenceslas Square there were mainly those who did not complain about this turn of events, and with the empty "celebration" it would be enough with the only "analytical tool" and that, if possible, the lack of co-ordination with communism might be possible. On the Bridge again, those who would most probably want to return to the time before the Bolsheviks took over, when the order and order was supervised by the Berlin Protector and the Czech Collaborative Government. Nearly a hundred of the locally visible Nazis had known that the times of numerous neo-Nazi marchs were there. However, there is no great reason to celebrate, considering that part of their agenda has successfully taken on somewhat mainstream subjects. The eternal DSSS chairman Tomas Vandas, Michal Buchta from the Slovenian organization "Youth Minors", spoke to the ministry, "Wake up, Czechs! Wonder! ", Matthew Heimbach of the American Traditionalist Worker Party, which is the opening of the Nazis and does not even try to hide it, only packs the radical left-wing rhetoric of the white race, and the well-known ex-Ladisim Malý, the ex-janitor. The former Vandas party leader Miroslav Sladek arrived. At the end of the day, about 20 drunken Nazis went to Na Príkope towards Republiky Square, where they apparently expected a collision with the left-wing demonstration. Almost traditionally, they set off on a trip with the Czech flag, which they held upside-down, before one of the sharper ones called them: "Guys, thirst, let's have it in reverse." From time to time this funny, though aggressive party stopped the cordon of cops, eventually two of them detained and the rest broke. only there packs the rhetoric of the radical left in the robe of the white race, and the well-known, ex-Ladisim Malý, the ex-threatened exod.

Some anarchists and anarchists have supported this event organized by RFK feminist Christians, Young Greens, Socialist Solidarity, and the recently established Queer Anarchist Group (QAS). In an invitation to an event called "We want to live, do not dare!" Among other things, it was worth saying: "But what do we really have to celebrate? While 1989 opened borders, we still hear the calls after their closure and the creation of impenetrable territory framed by national identity. It has brought us democracy and free elections, but it is the one who can afford to buy media and pay a magnificent electoral campaign. Although we can work freely, but only under the pressure of neo-liberalism, often for a salary that barely covers monthly costs, without the assurance of long-term contracts. (...) We do not think it normal for anyone to come back from work in such a state to have no energy to enjoy their free time,

The demonstration itself was preceded by a workshop a few days before it was held, in which anyone interested in the Clinic of the Autonomous Social Center could participate in the production of banners. The slogans appeared like "Straight Salaries, Equal Opportunities", "Live, Do Not Drop! For Free Work "or" Reciprocity instead of dominance ".

On the Republic Square, where the demonstration started at 2 pm, more than 200 people gathered. They listened to short speeches of the organizers, but also representatives of Women 365 or Team Like At Home. All the speeches reflected the fact that the freedom that is so much spoken on November 17 is a mere illusion in the situation of homeless, life-threatening or working under unenviable conditions. RFK has lent itself to such an understanding of Christian morality, which serves only as a legitimation of suffering and has not been criticized by the mention of Archbishop Duke of Prague. "This exaltation of suffering then serves as a tool of the ruling system, be it a medieval state of the state, fascist Italy, or globalized capitalism." QAS stressed again that "capitalism could never work if it did not convince us that there are different kinds of people,

Shortly after the speeches, Hybernská Street headed for the SŽDC, where the participants expressed their clear support to the Clinic, which this institution is trying to destroy, even though it has many other possibilities not to do so. At Senovážné námestí, the program of the event enriched the happening refusing to serve as a parking lot. Jindrišská street was the Czech Post where the working conditions of its employees were discussed. The next steps led Vodicková to the National Class, where they chanted: "Your children will be like us!" The event was finished at the Coal Market around 6 pm, where Vegan goulash and tea were prepared by the Social Cooperative of the Roof.

Although the beginning of the demonstration was very calm, during the march he gained volumes by chanting passwords on the topic of labor, against capitalism, sexism and racism. It felt how important it was for the present preservation of the Clinic as one of the few places of truly free organization. Even so, it was clear that action of this kind was lacking in the charge of earlier years. And maybe we will not be far from the truth when we think it's partly that in our everyday lives, most of us have to suffer, and there is no power to really live, organize, protest, and create the conditions for the growth of a movement that is aimed at society where they are the fruits of freedom for all, not only for those who reach them financially.
