Disturbances lecture series: How non-violence protects the established order

In Helsinki 31st of March, Kupoli of Uusi Ylioppilastalo (Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor) 7PM  (Note unusual time!)

Peter Gelderloos, author of "How Non-violence Protects the State" will have a critical take on pacifism and non-violence via skype. He questions most common arguments for non-violence, and argues that exclusive nonviolence often acts to reinforce the same structures of oppression that activists seek to overthrow. If you take a more careful look to past campaigns which are often celebrated as victories of non-violent methods, it is obvious that there was a bigger variety of tactics involved.

Disturbances is an open series of lectures and discussions at the crossroads of society, philosophy, history, economy and resistance.

We are already aware that we can not live as before, but we do not know what the future holds. Others are stuck in the past, but we only want to understand it. Even a small disturbance of an initial condition can lead a system into a completely different state.

Our speakers are Finnish and international anti-authoritarian researchers and activists. Events are organized in cooperation with A-ryhmä and AutOp, two student groups of the University of Helsinki. You may also follow lecture online (both real-time and recording) at http://bambuser.com/channel/A-ryhma.


Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write a-ryhma@riseup.net.
