Samfundet og børnene har behov for børnemagt.

Vi vil ikke tie mere. Så voxen fascister tag jer i agt, for her kommer det nye børnemagt!”.

visAvis:
“visAvis is a magazine that focuses on migration and asylum, produced by people with or without citizenship living in Denmark. From our point of view the policies regarding migration and asylum are repressive. People seeking refuge are made suspect and migrants are made illegal. The asylum process has become almost impossible, life in the camps close to unbearable. This has serious, literally fatal, consequences for the individual persons. And for society as a whole this presents serious problems. The rule of law is being undermined and the public debate is loosing its nuance. In this precarious situation we wish to raise the level of debate, enhance the quality of information, and create a space where it is possible for people seeking asylum to express what is on their mind.”

Jacob Graack: Anarchist perspectives on pedagogy
“Can anarchism and pedagogy be united – or do the two things exclude each other? In my presentation, through various examples from near and far – contemporary and historical – I will try to illustrate how elements of anarchism can be traced in a number of pedagogical initiatives and ideas. I want to set up a discussion of whether and how particular (norm)critical and liberating pedagogical perspectives can qualify practice with inspiration from anarchism “.

Seb Doubinsky talks about his work as a political intrument and how his anarchist point of view helps him develop the themes of his novels.

Winnie: The postmodern anarchism
“Where is the anarchism today and what does anarchists want in a welfare society strongly rooted in a discourse fixated on the individual where “the worker” is replaced by “the citizen” and where thoughts on alternatives are being left to the youth movements?
The classical anarchism has its historic roots in a broad labor movement with a particular focus on decentralization of power. The first anarchist movements in Europe formulated among other things human rights, womens’s rights and children’s inviolability, general housing policy and the comprehensive school, and were the first to launch working- and livingcollectives, which we know today as cooperative associations, dairy associations and other cooperatives.
So what now? In the talk a thesis on the main issues of today’s, western anarchist movement will be represented and possible solutions will be drawn”.
