to our friends,
today we want to share with you some thoughts about pride month:
The First Pride was a riot! June is the month of the Pride, the visibility and support of LGBTQ+ community, and the commemoration of the Stonewall uprising, its causes and liberation background.
Today there are many LGBTQ+ people who protect, volunteer and work for the best of our country and people. Strong, courageous, and proud they resist, so Ukraine can become a free and safe place. So it will be! Because of the Pride month we mentioned a series of interviews about local queer-anarchists that were published in the winter. They had an aim to meet and acquaint interested people with the community here, people, their ideas and practices. And today we finally saw the translation of the last interview, which we recommend you to read. The full cycle of the interview is available here.https://t.me/solidarnistinua
and also a call for donations for a comrade:
On the photos below is our comrade, Artur Kondratovich during his journey to Chernihiv. Last months he had been organizing logistics and delivery of humanitarian help to people and animals in Kyiv & Chernihiv’ regions who became war victims. Also he is a Belarus activist, one of the members of “RD’s case”, he is in the wanted list of Interpol (thanks to lukashenko’s regiment) and political refugee in Ukraine from 2017 where SSU tried to departure him. But, for himself he chose to help our country and people, so he became a battle medic in “Hospitaliers”. He got through the fast course, his role is tactmed/fireman and soon he will go to Donbas.
Right now Artur & his unit has unsolved needs so he asked to organize the fundraising for them. They need:
– bullets (5.56×223, 62 or 70 GRN);
– modificators for weapons (grips, buttstocks etc.);
– some additional equipment and cloths.
If you want to support Artur, you can donate him directly through PayPal.
next week this blog will take a little break, we will be back at the weekend and will post all updates here (follow our social media in this time, if you look for the newest news).
and as a reminder, we would like to point out this upcoming discussion.
solidarity will win
