Now-Eaters, the first section in Russia
We are very pleased from the foundation and first action of the first Russian section:
The Now-Eaters are the first section of the Hedonist International in Russia. Inspired by the atmosphere of Hedonist World Congress, we decided not to wait and to recreate this unique spirit of freedom, joy and radical creativity in our country. Russia is a particular place, where being a political activist or even just a street artist means being constantly under surveillance risking your freedom. That is why we launch the “Now-Eaters” project as a challenge for the dictatorship.
The action “Totalitarian Food Regime” took place on the 10th of June in Saint-Petersburg, which criticizes the new law about demonstrations that raises the charges for taking part in an illegal mass action up to 7500 euro (with an average monthly income of only 400 euro in Russia!).
We’ve decided to use the simple menu as a tool of agitation and to transform the inherent hedonistic human desire of satisfaction into a powerful, insatiable and revolutionary thirst for freedom. The false menu that we’ve put inside the real ones are totally based on the REAL text of the new law. The Now-Eaters strongly recommend you to use this means of agitation in your own actions! And Vive la Hedolution!
