Time of strike, time of uprising: France, or rather Europe

→ Italian Since months, France is the theatre of the biggest social strike of Europe. In order to contrast the loi El Khomri, thousands of workers refused to work and new strikes are continuing to interrupt production and services. The flows of transports, commodities and oil – with the prolonged block of refineries – are a field of struggle in …

The democracy of mobility against the government of democracy

→ ITALIAN The huge Spanish mobilizations in 2011, the coup that broke the dream of the Greek OXI in a night of July, the declaration of the state of emergency in France, the agreement between the EU and Turkey for the management of borders impose democracy as a rallying cry among the European movements. Many invoke it in order to restrain …

On the border of wage. The real movement and the democratic dilemma

→ Italian More than the horrors of the battle of Aleppo, it was the pressure of thousands of migrants what finally imposed a fragile agreement over the war in Syria. The weeks spent in negotiating, the more or less explicit blackmails, the unspeakable deals concerning the Kurdish people, the money required and the money promised, the announcement of intervention by …

The same things come back. Europe and our strike against the misery of the present

→ Italian Together with many others we said again and again that Europe is the minimum field of struggle. In front of the states of emergency, of Daesh’ terrorism, of the declared or directly waged wars, after the recent elections in France it is as if we were captured in an endless European involution. It seems that the same things …

Paint it red. The order of war and our transnational disorder

→ Italian Today both the holy war and the democratic one claim to impose a principle of order. Both are dividing with precision the fronts, asking to line up in order to meet the established targets. To reject the order of war does not mean, though, to embrace pacifism. To repeat the experience of the great movement that, after the …

Political intimacy, or: why the Greek vote was not a capitulation

by AKIS GAVRIILIDIS → Italiano Being in Greece the days during and after the last elections, and reading most of the comments written about them abroad, (but also some written within Greece), gives me a feeling of uncanniness, of a discrepancy; to the point that I wonder if these texts are really talking about the same event I have just …

Under the sign of the storm. Migrants, Europe and transnational strike

→ Italian Like a storm, migrants are haunting Europe. With their disordered movements they are crushing borders, institutions, and seemingly consolidated ideologies. Migrants have blown up the European status quo. What the Greek referendum was not able to do, it’s now happening thanks to thousands of men, women, and kids who are putting their lives at stakes in order to …

Factory without society. Around some problems concerning the transnational social strike

→ Italian We would like to contribute to the debate started by Plan C and Angry Workers because we believe it is particularly important for the meeting towards a transnational social strike that will take place in Poznan next October. Of this debate, including the latest comment of Australian Left, we wholly share the necessity of a political analysis which …

The summer of our dismay. Greece, Europe and transnational struggles

→ Italian This is not a coup d’etat. Undoubtedly there has been a de facto unilateral imposition that completely ignored and thus erased every trace of the Greek referendum. However we need to say that there was no State to hit since long time: dissolved by the pressure of debt, with an impossible sovereignty, with 1/3 of its people living …
