About: Libor Von Schönau

Libor Von Schönau grew up as an artist/activist in the Czech Republic, where he in 1992 joined the movement for environmental-indigenous-feminist-animal rights and against war/globalization/racism/sexism/homophobia/oppression/ablism/classism/transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. During that time, Libor became a vegetarian and began to work toward a more just and equitable world. After receiving a diploma in Operational Engineering, Libor refused to serve in the Czech military and became conscientious objector. He moved to the United States, where he received an International Marketing degree at the Central Connecticut State University.

Libor  is a cofounder of Art and Struggle (an artist and activist collective) and former vice-chair of the Middle East Crisis Committee, which runs a weekly TV program called “The Struggle” (a grassroots media production covering human rights issues from the Middle East and outwards), among other projects.

Libor is a multiple media artist-activist who has exhibited in, participated in and organized social justice events with like-minded artist/activists, such as Far From Ordinary, Uprising, Anti-Imperialist-People’s Soccer Tournament, Israeli Apartheid Week Art Festival and many others. In the fall of 2010 he won the 5k Run Race for Tarek Mehana & Leonard Peltier (political prisoners). In 2011 he was a passenger on the U.S. boat to Gaza called the Audacity of Hope (part of the international Freedom Flotilla).

During that time he got involved with the Greek uprising in Athens at Syntagma Square. A few weeks later he became one of the organizers of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Sandy.
Libor is actively and tweeting under handle name @LiborVS.
