I am an activist from Poznan, Poland and a member of the Polish
Anarchist Federation and the Anarchist Publishing Initiative , the Rozbrat Squat
[ the oldest anarchist social center in Poland ] and the anarchist library.
In 2000, I helped start the Workers Initiative a Polish anarchosyndicalist workers
union. I also helped organize the Anti War Coalition in 2002 and the first
Polish Food Not Bombs group in 1998.
I am visiting North America and would like to share my experience as a
Polish anarchist with your community. I can also show three 30 minute
videos about Poland.
