WIEDZMA

Hello! We are anarcho-feminist group from Poland. Our group was founded in 1996. We are co-educational group because we think that the liberation of women is the liberation of men as well. We oppose separatism which is the negation of equality while at the same time we respect women feminist culture which we are part of. In Poland feminism isn't popular idea, even on punk scene. There are still many stereotypes about man and female rolls. But since few years women and feministic culture and projects becoming more stronger. Our activities include informative street actions, awareness raising meetings whose main aim is to inform about the situation of women and the major problems they are subjected to in Poland. In October 2002 we had
organize night demonstration "to regain the night!" - against rapes and sexual violence. Now we are in process of organizing "festival of rights and culture of women" in our town - Biala Podlaska. We also edit a zine of which four issues has already been published. English-lingual version has been added to the two latest numbers.

 psst...
(some in Slovene, most in English)
Psst...was wonderfully written, designed and distributed by Tea from Spodnja Idrija, Slovenia. Tea reported for example from the Biketour to the summer youth festival Ecotopia and covered political and personal issues, but she also dealt with the many aspects of gender identity and ambiguity. Amazing Tea is one of the organizers of Rdece Zore / RED Dawns International Women's Festival! Even though she no longer does this zine, I must say her zines are wonderful, thoughtful pieces. I enjoy reading her zines so much, especially because she was able to transport so much in a few pages... A must, particularly for the Europeans around! And check the festivals in Slovenia! In short, I love Teas writing!

An anarchist reading room: "Elf’s reading room is a resource centre for people interested in radical social change. It’s a place where people can get in touch with the abundance of radical, revolutionary, anti-authoritarian and libertarian thought and practice in the form of books, comics, fanzines and magazines, video and audio materials. We also organize regular video showings, lectures, debates, presentations and other events. At Elf’s reading room people can meet and discuss, read books or take them home. It is our intention to support direct action initiatives, study groups or individuals, and movements working towards an anti-authoritarian, non-dominating, ecological society, based on mutual aid and solidarity."

As a part of activities of Stripburger there have been held various comic exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad. In the past years Stripburger has had a large influence on changing attitude towards comic art in Slovenia. It has become an important source for what’s going on in comic scene abroad, especially in Europe, for Slovene comic fans and for foreign followers of comic art a source for what’s happening on Slovene comic scene. Stripburger has encouraged many Slovene comic artists to continue to produce comics and work on developing their style."

Rdece Zore
RED DAWNS- 10th International Feminist and Queer Festival 2009

(+/-) March 8th, 2009,
Ljubljana (Slovenia)

Red Dawns Herstory

"The initiative for women’s festival Red Dawns began in 2000 in the Autonomous Cultural Centre Metelkova mesto in Ljubljana, Slovenia. A small group of women – members of associations KUD Mreža, ŠKUC-LL, Monokel and the no longer existing Women’s Centre and Kasandra – questioned the position of women in the tangled mesh of art, culture, politics, activism and everyday life. In Metelkova mesto, like elsewhere, the larger part of creative and organizational yet invisible work was done by women. Women were keeping Metelkova mesto alive and lively. We decided to organize a women festival on March 8th, the International Women’s Day, to celebrate our lives and redefine public space in order to make it accessible for creativity and socializing of women on our own terms: in an non-hierarchical, non-exploitational and anti-capitalistic manner.

We have not searched for “the essence” of Woman. The feminist struggles of the past have proved that attempts at defining women by our sex or even by our common features of character are misleading: they worry about metaphysics of “femininity” and “masculinity” instead of dealing with the reality of every-day hatred, disrespect and exploitation of women – and men. Festival Red Dawns does not advocate a further polarization of genders or “war of the sexes”. Instead, the creativity and the mingling of the participants of Red Dawns question the boundaries we take for granted; the isolating boundaries that separate people regardless of our gender.

The first edition of festival Red Dawns presented artists and activists working in AKC Metelkova mesto. In 2001, it connected with political allies from the Balkans and Central European neighbourhood. The assembly of low-budget and voluntary periphery travelled from Metelkova mesto to other locations – MC Podlaga (Sežana), Pekarna (Maribor) and Mostovna (Nova Gorica) – thereby considerably widening the circle of contributors. Since then, many individuals and other associations have joined and continue to support Red Dawns: Alkatraz Gallery, KUD Anarhiv, Radio Student, DZAC, CrossConversationCut, kamera REVOLTA, Cinema iNVISIBLE, feminist debate club of Faculty for Social Sciences, Teater Gromki, MKC Koper, MIKK Murska Sobota and the jugglers' collective of Menza pri koritu. Even though the groups differ greatly in their beliefs and not all of them can identify with any specific feminist theory they support the continuous efforts of Red Dawns as they believe that women’s work deserves more attention and appreciation."

 Bread&Roses
(Zagreb)
A Croatian feminist journal which features articles and essays on feminism. "Since 1994 Ženska infoteka publishes the magazine Kruh i ruže (Bread & Roses) in order to bring knowledge, experiences, new theoretical prospectives to the thousands of women who we do not know and have never seen, yet this being the most efficient way to reach as many people as we can - we consider this an extremely exciting aspect of our work. With our magazine we try to develop awareness of existing gender inequality and help to women researchers, activist and people in general in giving them arguments and space for creative and/or political work. By conducting and presenting reasearches and translating many articles we are transfering important knowledge on women issues to our readers. In the magazine we covered many topics such as women and language, feminism and democracy, electronic comunication and new technologies, women and art, women's human rights - "Dossier Beijing", lesbianism, women and politics, women and psychoanalysis and some others. We also initiated some researches conducted by experts and students and published the results in the magazine. The magazine is also an independent forum for discussion, exchange and distribution of relevant information concerning women throughout Eastern European countries in transition. Each article has an extensive summary in English language.
You can subscribe to the first Croatian feminist quarterly Bread & Roses (33 USD for 4 issues) by sending us an e-mail (zinfo [@] zamir.net) including your name and address; we will then send you an invoice." (Zagreb)

The meetings contain self esteem building elements and educational components, through them women and girls together develop sub-projects to benefit the whole community."
