Our series of mapping the student movement in the continuing real gems. The third installment is finally is, wonder of wonders, the student movement with all the trimmings. Student initiative is based in Brno, in fall 1997 called the Independent Social Ecological Movement, or NESEHNUTÍ. We bring you an exclusive interview with one of its activists, media otřelým Viktor Pioreckým.

I remember you as a spokesperson for the Initiative Against Economic Globalization (INPEG) meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) in Prague. That's almost three years. What were you doing all this time?

After protests against the IMF and the World Bank has ceased trading and INPEG. I went to work for Nesehnutí. Also, I was studying, and music.

J and studying? Are you satisfied with the level of study and its results?

With the results I was partially satisfied. One always has a tendency to make things better. The same applies to the school. If you compare the FSS of sociology at the University of Copenhagen (where I spent half a year) and the description of the Copenhagen European sociology of my classmates, then I conclude that sociology at the Faculty of Social Studies level.

Nesehnutí held last month in several demonstrations against militarism. Can you briefly describe the structure and objectives of your civic association?

Nesehnutí are non-hierarchical organizations, managers. Activities provided by several paid staff, the rest are volunteers. All decisions are made in a consensual manner. Of course it is sometimes difficult and tedious to find a consensus, but ultimately the quality surpasses quantity. The formulation of general objectives threw himself would not like, I do not speak for all. The specific objective is reflected in our campaigns: In traffic campaign in cooperation with the Brno transport association participate in decision-making procedure, we try to influence the construction of some roads (eg. prevent the construction of so-called. Hitler's Highway, a highway R43 directly affecting the protected area around Brno Reservoir as a recreational area and the dam itself) to stop the interference of pedestrian crossings, etc.. The campaign aims to involve the public in the creation of sustainable transport. Is very successful campaign called „Women's rights are human rights“. It aims to induce a broader discussion on the topics of feminism, women's rights and other gender issues. We hold a series of such seminars, which aim to „educate“ participants in the issues of feminism and related issues. We cooperate also with the academic center of the Gender attribute. My field of action is Antimilitarist campaign. We focus primarily on monitoring of the Czech arms trade – police, as they are riding in and out as. We try to highlight the often illegal trade with the Czech arms. The campaign was created in response to the arms fair in Brno IDET held every two years. Guns are in our trigger conflicts and means of further escalation. Czech weapons with the knowledge of the Czech government sold through transit countries or directly into Cambodia, Yemen, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Angola, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. CR is one of the problematic merchants of death, to which we are intensely alert.

Are acting only in the Brno region or nationwide?

We have six equal branches across the country. They deal with both local campaigns nationwide druhak activities.

From what sources your business funded?

We are a traditional grant organizations. Most funding comes from project grants from foundations such as OSF, Via Euros … Of volunteers is priceless.

J What is your experience with the media?

The media can not complain. Brno journalists have come to the Nesehnutí them, and know that it can not ignore, whether they write a positive or not. Straight allies in the media but we have not.

Collaborate with other civic initiatives, or with political parties?

We avoid cooperation with political parties. Although there have been attempts by the new leadership of the Greens, we're very suspicious of parliamentary politics and do not want to dirty their hands. Once we tried the protizbrojařské campaign of lobbying in parliament, but we only confirmed the general concept of intelligence and political skills. With other initiatives primarily's co­operate in the preparation and organization of specific events. For example, with People in Need co-organize the human rights campaign, One World. We also cooperate with Amnesty International, Ratolest, environmental legal service, etc.

Are you really a student movement? What is the age structure of members?

Originally founded Nesehnutí essentially as a student initiative. Over time, some grow old, they came under new and old. College students are still possible. We have no membership as such. The only safeguard is the right to vote, which occurs after three months of volunteering.

You could pick up some of the successful conclusion of the event and plans to bring Nesehnutých?

Successful long-term gender is a campaign by gaining the largest number of grants. In the near future we plan to develop a strong pressure on the armorers. One such produces a Czech producer of mines, which can be classified as clipless. While the CR is a signatory to international agreements to halt production and sale of landmines.
