„Elephant in the room“ is an anarchist radio show from Dresden. When we started in 2015 as a radio-project of the former Remembering-Khaled-Initiative (https://www.black-rose.xyz/remembering-khaled/) our focus was migration.
Over the last three years several people left our show for different reasons. Some moved away, others weren’t into radio anymore, new people came. As our collective changed, so did our show. Now we talk about political and social problems existing in Dresden and all around the world. We are transmitting live on the free radio coloradio in Dresden every second and fourth monday in a month at eight o´clock.
Im letzten Jahr waren feministischer und queer-feministischer Protest in Polen sehr präsent. In Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass Polen ein sehr konservatives und katholisches Land ist, war dies eine ziemlich große Mobilisierung und ein Schub in Richtung Selbstorganisation. Der Protest war mit zwei Aspekten verbunden, zum einen mit der Änderung des Anti-Abtreibungsgesetzes und zum anderen mit der zunehmenden homophoben Propaganda. In diesem Interview mit einem Transgender-Anarchist aus Warzaw blicken wir zurück und sprechen über den queeren Aufstand, die Repression und die Auswirkungen auf die queere Bewegung.
Die Sendung ist wie alle Elephant in the Room Sendungen in Englisch.
A lot of leftists and antifascists believe that there is a fascist junta in Ukraine that came to power after 2014 Maidan protests.
To break that myth and talk in details about the current politics in Ukraine we got together with an anarchist comrade from the country who tells us a bit about what was happening in last years there, why the police is working together with local fascists and what anarchists and antifascists are doing to fight back.
Anarchists were and are still an essential part of the workers struggle all around the world. From anarchist syndicates to smaller affinity groups for direct actions against bosses. Today we meet one of the activists of the anarchist union FAU from Jena, who will tell us a bit more about the past, present and the future of syndicalism in Germany.
What are the challenged of the modern anarchist syndicalism and how to move on overcoming them.
In this episode we are talking about situation with economical and social protests in Columbia in last months. What lead to this massive social movement? Who are participating in it and how you can support the struggle? We figure out this and many other questions with activists from the country.

In August 2020 the uprising against dictator Lukashenko started in Belarus, already before the re-election. After the falsified elections thousands of people went to the streets and were protesting for month. The regime hit back with massive violence. While at the beginning people were building barricades and fought the cops back, the liberals were calling for peaceful protest. This seem one of the key points why the uprising was eventually crashed by the regime. We talk in our show about the reasons why the uprising failed, about the resent situation in Belarus and ongoing repressions.
