Hi comrades,

I would like to be able to post to the site. I write some texts in Bulgarian language, but sometimes I would like to publish also in English. I lately finished my report about the London anarchist bookfair 2017 and I would like to make it available to English comrades, too. In Bulgarian it is available here.

Please provide any guidelines if you think there is a right place about this topic.

In solidarity,
Zlatko

hi, thanks for your comment!

We could host some of your texts in Bulgarian if you like?

However, we would not want to host that account of the Bookfair. Reading it with Google translate I can see it is unfortunately inaccurate. Your description of the two people simply as "feminists" is inaccurate. They were not anarchists, they are members of political parties (one of them at least is in the Green Party), and they were distributing hate propaganda against trans people. They have also been involved in violent attacks on trans activists, and have called the police and reported anarchists to the police.

Helen Steel is not just a "feminist" who defended them, she is a prominent advocate of hate propaganda against trans people.

Their claim to be concerned about men declaring themselves women in order to attack women in public toilets is far right hate propaganda, spouted by the religious far right of the American Republican party, and has no basis in fact.

Anyway there has been a lot of discussion about this on the site already. So if anyone wants to discuss this further they can do so in the existing thread here

Hello Steve,

I understand your point, I expected that you may not like what I wrote and this is why I added a link to it. Of course, if you do not consider it appropriate, I would not publish it at libcom. It is quite possible that my story is inaccurate, of course I do not know all the differences and trends in the UK movement.

But please consider that this was my personal impression of what I understood about the whole story. And that I have read a lot about it, including a significant part of the thread you posted above. Actually only when I got back to BG, some local people told me something bad happened in the bookfair, so I had to look for more information - I mean my view was not directly influenced from people in UK. If you think it makes sense, I could post this story or my opinion in the corresponding thread. But my point here is that to me, a person that did not receive the correct education, the response of the events looks like... what I wrote in the text. I believe it would look even worse for non-anarchist people from non-western countries. And I do not think our movement would benefit from it.

Anyway, consider my request retired. If I want to publish something else, I will ask again.

As for publishing in Bulgarian, I do not think it makes much sense... We have separate websites for this and I suppose most of the Bulgarian speaking people have easy access to them. Sometimes we translate to English some texts we consider important, but then I publish them using the FAB account. But this text was kind of a personal impression and, as I know the topic is controversial, I did not want to involve the organization with it.

Greetings comrades!
I'm a member of 2008-2012 journal and I also have a personal blog. We translate some of our articles in English, so I'm asking for posting rights in order to post them also here, so that more people around the world can find informations about things going on in Greece.

thanks very much for getting in touch! Sounds interesting. Do you have anything written yet? If so please email it to us to have a look to libcom.org@gmail.com

blogs are for people who plan on writing regularly, is that the case? If not we could always set you up with permissions to post to the library at first, and if you end up writing more then we can switch it to a blog. Let us know what you think, either here or on the above email address!
