Operation Solidarity – Day 101

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.


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.

to our friends,

today we have updated our coverage page: on the one hand we have added a report from the comrades of enough 14 about their time in ukraine. it is already from may 10, but has escaped us until now. unfortunately also only available in german.

there is also a new interview with a person from the resistance committee:

and then another part of alexis’ video documentary has been released:

Greek filmmaker Alexis Daloumis reached Kharkiv and published a new documentary about the grassroots volunteer movement there, military actions and the situation in the city. We highly recommend to watch it!

last but not least, we send flaming greetings to those anarcho-communists who sabotaged military railroad lines in russia. [German translation of their statement]

Operation Solidarity – Day 98

to our friends,

here is another event announcement – this time for the next weekend in the netherlands.
the friends of the anarchist group amsterdam are also collecting money for us; for people from the netherlands maybe an easy version to donate money to us.

Anarchist from Kyiv – Ukraine at the Pinksterlanddagen /Appelscha

For more than 3 months there has been war in Ukraine. While in the first days of war the news was checked every few hours, for most people in Western Europe the situation is slowly becoming normal. A stalemate is developing at the front, more and more people are fleeing to the west of Ukraine and from there further to Central and Western Europe. Libertarian, anarchist and anti-fascist activists have joined forces and started to organize before the war and now act e.g. under the label Operation Solidarity. An anarchist companion from Anarchist Black Cross in Kiev will tell us about her perspective on Russia, Ukraine, and anarchist life in the country before and during the war.

The presentation will be in English. We will organize a translation if needed.

We, the Anarchist Group Amsterdam, have been supporting our comrades in Ukraine since the beginning of the war who resisted the occupying forces with extremely limited resources and with direct solidarity aid provide people with food, medicine and help people escaping from war.

This meeting will take place on Sunday 5 June
at 17 oclcok in the Gym room during the Pinksterlanddagen.
Address: Aekingaweg 1 A Appelscha, Holland
