We are all units that can unite to create a just future. But all attempts are predetermined to fail, as long as these units are zeros.
It is not enough to simply seek the truth, it is insufficient to know that things are bad and that change is necessary. Actions need to be taken, and YOU are the action! It is good to dream about freedom, but what’s the point if we live like slaves? It’s easy to talk about helping one when every day you ignore the ones in need. It is easy to dream about “The organization” when you can’t even discipline yourself. This leads to a contradiction, which doesn’t lead us anywhere. This issue will be largely dedicated to self-improvement. It will contain a lot of psychology and philosophy. Most of us have faced the problems of maturity: big responsibilities, children, financial difficulties, problems with housing, disillusioned or frightened fiends, graduation and the need for employment. At this moment many of our friends begin to say «I used to be a punk too». In this issue we will share our reflections on how to stay true, to be yourself, not to loose your youthful endeavors, to move straight along your life.

Noise And Resistance is a documentary about a globally interconnected scene, built on autonomy and solidarity.
There are other ways. Commerce, capital, and consumption are by no means irrevocable necessities in today’s world. In their angry and rousing documentary “Noise and Resistance”, Francesca Araiza Andrade and Julia Ostertag show that those who think so are not alone in this opinion.

Let’s go to the cinema!
Are you crazy? It supports capitalism!
It often happens that I meet people who are so get caught in their idea, that they just do not want to see anything around them. As a rule such people have no hobby (as their hobby is to be a punk), they are badly educated and the only things that bother them are, probably, anarchism, punk culture, antifa and so on. He reads only those books, that are concerned to a certain interesting theme for him, the same with films, places to visit and even the circle of people Read more
Different “national benefactors” advertise about our votes,they think we should give it to them,because they will take care about our life. They only, and not their concurrents, concurrents are corrupted, evil and have only on their mind to steal so much of our cash, that they can. We’re don’t worried about it. We mean, that is their work to elevate theirself and to humiliate other. That is their work,to cheat us. We don’t trust to institution of representive democracy. Anyways we don?t trust in voting, as bad or good and fair they can be. Read more
With the development of movement in Russia a natural need to learn more appears. Learn more not only about some kind of new ideas, ways of fighting, occupation, etc., but also to learn something new from other countries. It’s quite clear, because anarchist movement is international, and it is normal to support or to adopt some practices from other countries, thought the exchange of experience is quite a good thing for common movement development across the world. And on that nice note, I’ll start story about the social and anarchist movement in Spain, namely in Madrid. Read more

The city center, is more exact city station, is terminal station of branch S7, one of set of multi-colored lines on the Berlin scheme of trains. Our station carries the fantastic name of “Mycelium”, this beginning of Potsdam, an old, expensive, conservative disctrict of the city, huge stone private residences, flower avenues, boat station.

The only thing I want to discover in this short text is the difference between their anarchist movement, and various other movements such as 15-M and, for example, our own.
It’s no secret that the movements in Spain have a much more power, influence, etc. in the country than we have in Russia. You should be surprised by the fact that, at least in Madrid, as the capital, demonstrations take place at intervals 3-4 times a week. Read more
