Today, September 9, 2023, Dmitry Petrov would have turned 34 years old. On the website of his memory leshy.info you can read and listen to Dima’s biography, his interviews and lectures, his articles and articles about him. There are links to books he translated or edited, to projects in which he participated. The memorial website consists of sections in Russian, English and Ukrainian.
The antifascist movement emerged in Russia in the late 1990s – early 2000s as a response to neo-Nazis’ violence: back then, the far-right was attacking migrants, homeless people, punks and anyone they didn’t like almost daily. Over the past couple of decades, the movement has changed significantly, having gone through murders of its participants, numerous criminal cases and now a split due to the war.
We publish an article from Crimethinc.
On April 19, 2023, three anarchists were killed in battle near Bakhmut: an American named Cooper Andrews, an Irishman named Finbar Cafferkey, and a Russian named Dmitry Petrov, known to us until then as Ilya Leshy. People in our networks have shared undertakings with all three of these comrades over the years.
18th of March marks 4 years since our comrade, an Italian anarchist, şehîd Tekoşer Piling (Lorenzo "Orso" Orsetti) fell in battle in Baghuz al-Fawqani. Lorenzo was fighting ISIS alongside Kurdish and Arab comrades, defending the revolution of Northeast Syria. It is an honour for us to share with you all this short brochure with last journals and writings of ṣehîd Tekoṣer. We treasure his words and we hope they can bring you as much inspiration as they brought to us.
Al-Baghuz Fawqani was last stronghold of ISIS.
The revolutionary events at the beginning of the last century, and the following civil war, did not leave Siberia unaffected. One of the key, dramatic events at that time unfolded in Irkutsk; as well as the December battles of 1917 and 1919, the partisan war, foreign intervention, and the arrest and execution of the White movement’s leader, A.V. Kolchak.
The main forces of the civil war are considered to be the “Whites” and the “Reds”, but little is said about the participation of anarchists in the fight for freedom.
Tekmil is an instrument of collective reflection. The historical root of what we know as tekmil can be traced to authoritarian communist traditions, such as Stalinism. Although, Mao was the first one among these traditions to put so much emphasis and importance to the methods of criticisms and self-criticism. Overall, we can state that critique and self-critique has been valuable for revolutionary movements in general, and has never been alien to non-authoritarian revolutionary movements in general.
In the context of Rojava, tekmil can be translated as "report" - further, one can trace the development and transformation of this meaning depending on the situation. Still, the literal translation makes sense to keep in mind - humbleness and shortness are valued in tekmil. It contains many cultural codes, mechanisms and ideological assumptions, and it requires an understanding and a solid philosophical and ideological foundation.
The results of the first 30 years of “democracy” in Ukraine are, to put it mildly, unconvincing. The economy and the media are in the hands of rival oligarchs, corruption is at staggering levels, economic development lags behind many African countries, and in addition, the country has become the center of the neo-Nazi movement around the world. And these problems are basically home-grown, not the result of the Kremlin’s intrigues.
8 September at 19.00 by local time in Riga (Latvia) in the library "Bolderaya", which is now in the center of the city, at Avotu Str. 29, presentation of the book by Dmitry Buchenkov "Falsification of criminal cases in modern Russia (on the example of the "Bolotnoye" case)" will take place. We hope that we will be able to provide a live broadcast of this event on our Facebook page: Anarhisti Latvijā / Anarchists in Latvia / Анархисты в Латвии

Finnish labor unions have been marked by power struggle between political parties for nearly a hundred years now. Revolutionary syndicalism, born in early 20th century France, tried to end inter-party arguments within labor unions. Revolution was to be achieved solely through economic means without political power struggles.

In late 60's, instinctive anarchism was covered in both Aamurusko, published in Turku, and Ultra, published in Helsinki. A more theoretical approach developed in the anarchist research group of Critical university, and in legendary anarchist club. Anarchism was put in practice in a number of work collectives of the 70's.
