Jakub Polák – veteran anarchist from czechia died

The death has been announced of the veteran anarchist Jakub Polák, regarded by some as the leading light of the Czechoslovak and later Czech anarchist movement. The founder of numerous anarchist initiatives and long-time editor of the anarchist paper A-kontra, Polák was perhaps best known for his public – and at times unpopular – defence of the Roma community.

Jakub was active dissident while the bolshevist regime, participated in the first squatting in czechia in 1990, was in solidarity with the milada squatters and was involved in interventions against fascists.
We will miss him.
