Product Description


"Lives of the Orange Men presents eyewitness reports and primary documents of the Orange Alternative's cultural activism. Their ideological masquerade, predating The Yes Men and Reclaim the Streets, baffled police and stymied the disintegrating regime of General Jaruzelski. What more could anyone ask except to remind readers that there is no freedom without dwarves!" - Greg Sholette, author of Dark Matter: Art and Politics in the Age of Enterprise Culture

"The streets of Wrocław were a magical place to be, once upon a time Communism's melting away in Eastern Europe in 1989 cannot be understood without the Orange Alternative. So listen to Major Fydrych - This book teaches the mystical tongue of the Orange Men and unveils their rites. Long live the dwarves!" - Padraic Kenney, author of A Carnival of Revolution: Central Europe 1989"

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny yet entirely true first hand account on how young ... 2 Feb. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very funny yet entirely true first hand account on how young anarchists, pacifists, buddhists, freaks and other outlandish creatures in Poland made their key contribution to the fall of the Soviet communism behind the Iron Curtain brandishing slogans like "There is no Freedom without Dwarfs" and "Proletarians of the World - be beautiful!" Quite worth an attentive reading. Inspiring for other world changers.
