CALL FOR AN INTERNATIONAL ANARCHIST BALKAN MEETING ABOUT NATIONALISM
TO THE WHOLE BALKAN ANARCHIST / LIBERTARIAN MOVEMENT
We believe that the modern anarchist/libertarian movement has to find specific ways to address important issues, arising especially in the sensitive Balkan area.
Internationalist solidarity cannot only be a simple slogan but has to be a well determined proposal for the people’s cohabitance and cooperation.
Thus, certain basic issues that concern us and we consider important as subject of a common discussion for all Balkan anarchists are :
The issue of border changes today in the Balkan region (e.g. Kosovo)
The issue of “National Identity” and where we stand towards it
The issue of Ethnic minorities (existing in every Balcan state)
The issue weather or not “progressive patriotism” exists, and what is the relationship of Anarchism with it
The issue of the relations of the Balkan people with supranational structures (E.U. , NATO etc)
Our stance towards a possible national war or imperialist intervention in the Balkan region today
The issue of establishing a common Balkan liberating
These are just some of the themes that we felt important to present. All revolve around the theme of nationalism.
We call on all anarchists/libertarians who fight and act in the Balkans to participate in the process of building of this meeting with suggestions, documents and proposals.
The next Anarchist Balcan Bookfair that will take place in Ljubjana on 24 - 26 May 2013 could be a first moment for debate and comparison to examine whether there will be the strength and the will to build such a Balkan meeting.
