VOID NETWORK- Signs of the times / Images from the future: Thoughts on the “yellow vests” and the revolt in France.

Almost two months after their emergence the yellow vests are still here! The movement started attracting international attention and more extensive coverage after the events that took place on Saturday 1/12. This was expectable, since no matter what our political judgment may turn out to be, we are faced with a nationwide revolt, which has not simply prompted thoughts for a state of emergency, but led to its informal implementation,… …

Τρέξε, κίτρινο γιλέκο, ο παλιός κόσμος είναι πίσω σου!- Yannis Youlountas

Αλλάζει πραγματικά μορφή το κίνημα των κίτρινων γιλέκων και απελευθερώνεται από την άκρα δεξιά που προσπαθούσε να το εκμεταλλευτεί από την αρχή; Υπό ποιές προϋποθέσεις μπορεί το κίνημα να εξαπλωθεί και να φέρει τη ρήξη με κάθε πολιτική αντιπροσώπευση; Και εάν τελικά έπεφτε ο Μακρόν, ποιός θα ήταν ο άσος στο μανίκι του κεφαλαίου και ποιός ο καλύτερος τρόπος για να τον εμποδίσουμε; ΤΡΕΞΕ, ΚΙΤΡΙΝΟ ΓΙΛΕΚΟ, Ο ΠΑΛΙΟΣ ΚΟΣΜΟΣ ΕΙΝΑΙ… …

ΚΕΝΟ ΔΙΚΤΥΟ: Σημεία των καιρών / Εικόνες από το μέλλον: Σκέψεις για τα «Κίτρινα Γιλέκα» και την εξέγερση στην Γαλλία

Ειδικά μετά τα γεγονότα του Σαββάτου της 1/12 στην Γαλλία, το κίνημα των «κίτρινων γιλέκων» έχει συγκεντρώσει τα φώτα της δημοσιότητας πάνω του. Αναμενόμενο, αφού (ανεξαρτήτως της πολιτικής μας κρίσης επί αυτής) μιλάμε για μια εξέγερση εθνικής εμβέλειας, που δεν παρήγαγε απλά σκέψεις για κήρυξη έκτακτης ανάγκης αλλά και την άτυπη επιβολή της, μέσα από την αστυνομοκρατία που επιβλήθηκε στην πιο πρόσφατη συγκέντρωση στις 8/12. Μέσα στον όγκο κειμένων που… …

‘Yellow Vests’ Riot in Paris, but Their Anger Is Rooted Deep in France- By Adam Nossiter

GUÉRET, France — At the bare bottom of Florian Dou’s shopping cart at the discount supermarket, there was a packet of $6 sausages and not much else. It was the end of last week, and the end of last month. At that point, “my salary and my wife’s have been gone for 10 days,” he lamented. How to survive those days between when the money runs out and when his… …

“To a Friend / Essay on Blanqui” by The Imaginary Party

The ingenuity of the Imaginary Party’s essay on Blanqui is that it goes way beyond merely contextualizing Blanqui; it even goes beyond trying to defend the indefensible Blanqui, the revolutionary who is unacceptable to everyone, especially self-proclaimed revolutionaries. “To a friend” (as the preface is also known) aims to be a modern Blanquist statement: an advancement of Blanqui’s own ideas and actions by people unafraid to be called “Blanquists.” Who… …

“Mind the Dash” a critical analysis of Theory of Bloom & Theory of the Young-Girl

The somewhat recent (2012) translation of Tiqqun’s Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl published by Semiotext(e) seems to be stimulating more conversation than the previous, less achieved, version. (Or at least the discussion is more above-ground and visible, likely due to Ariana Reines’ new translation as well as the wider sweep of Semiotext(e)’s distribution.) At the same time, it feels as though the conversation has barely begun—at least… …

Enraged About Corporate Greed? Kidnap Your Boss By Christopher Ketcham

Enraged About Corporate Greed? Kidnap Your Boss By Christopher Ketcham, AlterNet. Posted April 30, 2009The French have taken to bossnapping — “sequestering” their bosses while keeping them comfortable and safe — to protest economic unfairness. In answer to their own economic crisis, the French have taken up “bossnapping.” Here’s how it works: An executive of a company, perhaps the CEO, stands before a group of his employees, puts his hands… …
