Operation Solidarity – Day 25

to our friends,

here is a small contribution from our telegram account about the battle of information. in the near future we will also set up a page here, which will collect the reports about and with us.
whoever can help on this terrain – through interviews, reports, etc. – is welcome to contact us.

The role of struggle in the information space today is difficult to overestimate. That is why it is extremely important for us to inform libertarian activists around the world why today a neutral or equidistant position on war only works in favor of the aggressor. Why the responsibility for its solution lies solely with the leadership of the Russian Federation. And why those who have always stood for peace are now taking up arms to achieve it. That is why members of Operation Solidarity regularly take part in conferences, discussions, give interviews to the Western media and try to form an international coalition to support the resistance movement in Ukraine. Here are just some of the activities we participated in:

– interview with the Spanish publication EL PAÍS;

– three events organized by the International Executive Committee (IEC) – International Workers’ Unity-Fourth International (IWU-FI) in Barcelona, ​​Gerona and Lleida (Spain). Two more performances are planned in Portugal and Brazil;

– solidarity event organized by the Berlin housing project Kopi 137 «Fuck war, Fuck Putler»;

– online discussion «Global solidarity: Voices from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia against the states and the militarization of the planet» by CrimethInc; [a German translation of our part in it can be found here]

– conferences with the international network Solidarity from below;

– discussion «War in Ukraine» in the anarchist infocafe in Berlin;

– interview for Mutual Exchange Radio;

– interview with Italian Radio Blackout.

and the good news: we have a new paypal account!
you can now simply send money to asolidaritywithukraine@riseup.net – other donation options are available on our site.

thanks a lot to all of you who have donated lately!

Operation Solidarity – Day 24

to our friends,

 Our friends from the Polish anarcho-syndicalist trade union Inicjatywa Pracownicza (Workers’ Initiative) defend the rights of Ukrainian labor migrants on a daily basis and fight for the interests of employees. In this war, they are also on the side of the Ukrainians in their struggle against Russian imperialism. In addition to clothing, medicine and tactical equipment, we received 3 thermal imagers from them. One of them is already at the front line.

Thank you for your solidarity!

there seem to be people all over the world stumbling with red paint in front of russian embassies lately. some examples we found on twitter:

keep on stumbling, until the whole empire stumbles.

Operation Solidarity – Day 23

to our friends,

today we want to share with you a report and some thoughts from our social media.

first, we were able to organize a large quantity of bulletproof vests:

In recent days, Operation Solidarity has made an extremely important purchase. With the mediation of the Polish human rights organization Open Dialogue Foundation, we ordered 100 Israeli bulletproof vests of the 4th class of protection and we are waiting for them in Ukraine in a week. It cost 60,000 euros, but it will provide bulletproof vests to most libertarian activists in the Territorial Defense, and possibly save many lives.

Of course, this became possible only thanks to the solidarity and support of many countries around the world! But bulletproof vests are only part of what the defense needs today. Therefore, you can still help us raise funds for helmets, unloading, tactical medicine, thermal imagers, clothing and other things that are virtually non-existent in Ukraine.

and secondly, we want to share a few thoughts from our structures with you.

In our organization we have intense discussions on actual political problems and perspectives, try to follow the events, conceptualize the realities, and to change… Here are some geopolitical thoughts


The Kremlin’s propagandists fabricate a picture of “War between Russia and NATO”.

However we don’t see NATO around. Instead we see Russian imperialism in its “best”. At the same time we know – there are a lot of Russians on our side. And there is no neutrality exists at the moment. There is either the resistance against the invasion, or its support.

Now the whole people of Russia is taken hostage by its government: growing poverty, threat of repressions, border closing or even nuclear war. The stream of Russian soldier’s coffins is growing as well. Inside are people who were used by Russian authorities to implement their crazy projects. So in fact Putin wage war not only against the people of Ukraine but also against Russians and Belarusians (by prolongation of Lukashenko rule). The defeat of aggressor will open the road for positive changes in all our countries.

We greet the anti-war actions in Russia, starting from street demos and up to sabotage against conscription centers, blocking the railroad movement of military trains and other forms of direct action. From anonymous leaflets and up to takeover of the television streams. The defeat of Putin – is common interest of Ukrainians, Belarusians and Russians. We call all the people of the good will on any side of the border for active resistance against occupation. And all who became refugee – to speak loudly of your position and the truth about the crimes of Russian state in Ukraine.

furthermore, the comrades at black mosquito created this design – also with humor we will win this war and propaganda battle.
