Hello, brothers and sisters!
My name is Grusha, im anarcho-primitivist from Moscow. I hope, some of you know me, because I was in Urvision camps (Sweden).
First of all I have to say, that its really nice to be here among like-minded persons. I hope that we’ll get here some good conversations.
So thats my bried story. 6 years ago I became part of militant antifashist movement. Then left wing antifas involved me in anarchism. There was my first Free Forum and someday I realised that anarchism is my way. I started read books, Russia has great anarchist tradition - Bakunin, Kropotkin, Makhno. After three years I was in doubt - everything we were doing was failure. I was hoping for revolution the day after tomorrow, but weve got nothing but arrests, repressions and murders of activists.
I began to seek again. At first it was Ted Kaczynski book and finally - fresh translated book of John Zerzan “Future Primitiv”. I was like a hungry boy in Macdonalds. That was awesome! Suddenly everything in the world fall into place! I established small anarcho-primitivist community with my comrade in Moscow and few web-sites. Now every anarchist in Russia have heard about anarcho-primitivism and thats awesome too.
I visited Urvision camps and meet there good people, like Thierry Sallantin. Years pasted, I finished university and became “free man”. So… Mom, should I get a job? But… I FUCKING HATE to work!
Now Im looking for possibilities to join real anarcho-primitivist commune and live there. At first I was thinking about Tamarack song’s offer to learn primitive skills for one year for $5000, but its too much. Thierry Sallantin has good plan to get aside from civilisation, but I lost him - he dosnt answer me.
So Im here, brothers and sisters, to kick asses and chew bubble-gum and I’m all out of bubblegum.
