"Rewolta" magazine no. 3 / 1989
"Rewolta" was an anarchist magazine published in Warsaw by Piotr Rymarczyk and Piotr Salwowski (initially also by Adam Ryć) since 1989. Paper was associated with the Alternative Society Movement and Anarchist Intercity organization (Międzymiastówka Anarchistyczna), however it was substantially different from the Tricity’s RSA. Besides addressing the issues of anarchist, anarcho-syndicalist, and anti-war nature, it also discussed women’s rights, homosexuality, animal rights or vegetarianism – the problems which were not obvious part of freedom discourse for the elder activists of anarchistic movement.
The 3rd issue of “Rewolta” from December 1989 is distinguished by an attractive cover with the portrait of Piotr Kropotkin. Inside one can find texts about e.g. anarchism in USSR, Black Cross activities, having sex in prison, critiques of parliamentary democracy and a biography of Edward Abramowski. Broad thematic scope, brilliance and brave style of “Rewolta’s” authors made this magazine one of the most interesting anarchistic publications of the time of transformation.
