Anarchism & Autonomy

Every year, Russian activists gather in Helsinki, continuing a long tradition in which the city has served as a safe haven for Russian revolutionaries.

As the Putin regime is turning Russia into a police state, the relative safety of foreign soil is becoming more important for opposition activists. A political festival in Finland has become a key venue for Russian leftists to get together safely. Gathering in Helsinki each winter to discuss and strategize, they are reviving the city’s traditional role as a refuge for Russian radicals and a hotbed of Russian revolutionary politics. Welcome to “Father Frost Against Putin”!

N.B. Due to the pandemic, the upcoming edition of the festival Father Frost Against Putin has been postponed to June 2021. The organizing collective has also decided to rebrand, and the festival is now known as “Feast after Plague.” For more info, check out their website.
