Welcome to Takku!

Takku is a do-it-together media project, that aims, with the power of words, to encourage unmediated and autonomous revolt against the present (self)destructive reality - independent from parties, unions and NGOs.

The purpose of Takku is to generate action, discussion and critique, not create dogmatic ideology. We want to further the grass roots antiauthoritarian activities of free and equal individuals without providing space for those who try to gain power. Hence we will not publish and will remove all racist and sexist shit, promotion of political parties or their youth organisations, as well as all kinds of North Korea and ecofascism hype.

Anyone who agrees with this can participate in creating content by sending pieces of news or anything else that can be published in article form. Articles and news from other media can be sent to the English language discussion forum.

Takku's main purpose is to serve as a news portal and communication channel not only between people who speak the Finnish language but also between those who speak Finnish and (for now, unfortunately only) the English speaking world. However, we encourage you to translate our texts from Finnish (or these English translations) into whatever languages you or your media project speaks.

Ideas for developing the site are very welcome in the English language forum, or by email to kollektiivi (a) takku dot net.

The material published in Takku does not necessarily represent the collective, its individual members, or any social movement or ideology. The published articles represent only their writers and creators, be they anonymous or not.

Anti-copyright. Every picture, sound and piece of text that you might want to use is yours. Use it as you please without asking for permission.

A Brief Report from the December 6th riot of Helsinki

On the Finnish indepence day 6th of December there was a big riot (on local scale) in the capital Helsinki and the police estimates that a 100 000 euros worth of property was destroyed.

The banner on the left reads "let's stop the cuts, collectivize everything" and on the right "class war now"

December 6th is the national indepence day of Finland. It is a day when the nationalists and the elite celebrate "an united Finnish nation" and lost wars in the Presidential Palace in Helsinki on taxpayers money, while the elite and politicians have driven harsh austerity measures for everybody (except for themselves, obviously).

In the past years anarchists and autonomous leftists have organized pretty peaceful demonstrations against these rich people's baccanals in front of the Palace. This custom had been going on for over 10 years until the 6th of December last year when the Presidental Palace was under renovation and the rich celebrated in the old working class city of Tampere instead. Local anarchists organized a demonstration against nationalism, which turned out to be the biggest riot of Finland in decades. Though this was hardly a riot on international scale, it gave a huge boost to the anarchist movement and it was the headline of every paper for a week or so. The police was completely unprepared, and the 500 demonstrators fought with them successfully and then went on to the city center smashing windows of malls and banks and other symbols of power and capital.

Summary of anarchist support activities for public and welfare services wildcat strike in Helsinki 23rd of September

[Avtonom]
 
 
The trade union for public and welfare services (JHL) went on wildcat strike to oppose the "marketization" of Palmia, a municipally-owned service enterprise. Right-wing leadership of the city attempts to reorganise 50% of Palmia so that it must participate to tenders, which will lead to substantial wage cuts for the workers. The seizure of subway and tram transport by striking workers proved to be a powerful weapon in the struggle against the bosses. However, the Helsinki Regional Transport Authority (HSL) organized replacement transportation to nullify its effect. Anarchists announced that they will block all the replacement buses and soon after that AKT (the union of bus drivers, amongst others) announced a strike on those routes.

Bail and Legal Fund for Those Arrested During Ferguson Anti-Police Demonstrations

 A bail and legal fund has been established to support the 43 or so people who have been arrested during the anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo.  Please spread the word widely and help us get some money together to get these people out.Also, we are looking for information on who was arrested so we can get them legal support and bail them out if necessary. If you have a friend or family member who was arrested, please email us their name at antistatestl@riseup.net

All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future.

Musta Pispala 17th-20th July 2014, Tampere

Welcome to Musta Pispala!

In July anarchist counter-cultural festival Musta Pispala spreads again around the gentrificated landscapes of Pispala region. City centers are becoming more and more a mere subject of commercial activities, offering less and less chances to meet without demands of consumption and adapting to the capitalistic agenda. Musta Pispala is creating its own counterculture for ninth year in a row. We want to bring people together for the weekend to work for a better world, to discuss how to question, destabilize and destroy the present system that is built on principles of oppression and inequality, and to celebrate in atmosphere of creativity, movement, and co-operation. Musta Pispala is open for all antiauthoritarian operatives.

Why is our flag black? Black is a shade of negation. The black flag is the negation of all flags. It is a negation of nationhood which puts the human race against itself and denies the unity of all humankind. Black is a mood of anger and outrage at all the hideous crimes against humanity perpetrated in the name of allegiance to one state or another. It is anger and outrage at the insult to human intelligence implied in the pretences, hypocrisies, and cheap chicaneries of governments ... Black is also a colour of mourning; the black flag which cancels out the nation also mourns its victims the countless millions murdered in wars, external and internal, to the greater glory and stability of some bloody state. It mourns for those whose labour is robbed (taxed) to pay for the slaughter and oppression of other human beings. It mourns not only the death of the body but the crippling of the spirit under authoritarian and hierarchic systems; it mourns the millions of brain cells blacked out with never a chance to light up the world. It is a colour of inconsolable grief. / But black is also beautiful. It is a colour of determination, of resolve, of strength, a colour by which all others are clarified and defined. Black is the mysterious surrounding of germination, of fertility, the breeding ground of new life which always evolves, renews, refreshes, and reproduces itself in darkness. The seed hidden in the earth, the strange journey of the sperm, the secret growth of the embryo in the womb all these the blackness surrounds and protects. / So black is negation, is anger, is outrage, is mourning, is beauty, is hope, is the fostering and sheltering of new forms of human life and relationship on and with this earth. The black flag means all these things. We are proud to carry it, sorry we have to, and look forward to the day when such a symbol will no longer be necessary.
Howard Ehrlich
Reinventing Anarchy, Again  (1978)
