“Cultures of Resistance” by Iara Lee / Announcement of new period of Collaboration of Void Network with Iara Lee

November 29, 2010

Yesterday night people from Void Network had the great chance to meet with the friend, director and a cultural activist Iara Lee. After 12 years of contacts and colaborations through interent Iara Lee arrived for first time in Athens for participating in events of Solidarity to the Struggle of Palestinian people and screening of her new film. 

She also participated in a discussion on the topic of “resistance movements worldwide” and her experience on board the Mavi Marmara vessel.
The event was organised by the International Network in Solidarity with the Palestinian Popular Resistance in cooperation with the Palestinian association Al-Awda.
Screenings of her film will also take place in Thessaloniki and other cities. Lee shot footage aboard the Mavi Marmara, the lead vessel in the “Gaza Freedom Flotilla”, during a raid on the vessel by Israeli commandos last May. 

We spent the night talking enthousiastic about everything, drinking all over Exarchia, in social centers, anarchist squats, cafes, a dubstep club night, an underground queer festival and the occupied park of Exarchia. For Sunday night in Europe it was a great night… 
With Iara Lee we share our hate for capitalism, economic and political elites, all governments and states of this world, the rage for slavery, genocide and war, the common understanding that existing billions of people in this world that are ready to fight back exploitation, misery and enslavement. We have to face the question:
How we wil find the best way to meet on the streets of this planet?… How we will co-ordinate our ideas, actions and cultures of resistance?… How we will learn from each other’s efforts, failures, success and hopes?
The struggle for Total Freedom continues as long the sun will shine on Earth’s blue sky
