In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Putilov Strike of 1917 and the ensuing Russian revolution, telekommunisten is organizing a day of political workshops, culminating with a delegates’ assembly on Saturday February 18th at the ver.di labour union headquarters in Berlin. This will be followed by a commemorative celebration at C-Base Space Station.
This is an all day starting at 11am.
Join us for a leadership workshop focusing on Counterpolitics, Technological Disobedience and Queering Communism.
The Workshop will be hosted by Dmytri Kleiner and Baruch Gottlieb, with presentations and facilitation by Ewa Majewska, Zeljko Blace, Daniel B. Tirado, Gavin Mendel Gleeson, Seda Gurses, and Diana McCarty.
Workshop participants will develop political vision and prepare for delivering rousing speeches at the delegate assembly.
100 years after Russian Revolution, we find ourselves at a critical political crossroads. After decades of neoliberal, austerity politics, perpetual war and economic crisis, people are ready for a contemporary political vision for this century. Come and share your vision! We want to hear from you!
February 18th, 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the Putilov Strike which, by many accounts, was the strike which precipitated the Russian Revolution. After the delegates assembly, we move to c-base to reflect on the conditions of the people of Russia in 1917 which mobilized the strikers leading up to the revolution. With polemics and song, we will retrieve the promise of a better future for all humanity, which brought about the revolution we are still living the ramifications of today.
