“Revolt & Crisis in Greece” – Wednesday, April 20 – 8:00pm – Joe’s Café – 1150 Commercial Drive
*Reflections on the December Insurrection, the Economic Crisis, and
Ongoing Struggles in Greece and beyond…*
A multimedia presentation and discussion
Antonis Vradis and Dimitris Dalakoglou are editors of the anarchist journal and blog Occupied London and members of the antagonist movement in Greece and the UK. Since the Greek Insurrection of December 2008 the OL blog has been an important source of English language updates from the streets of Athens, Thessaloniki and other cities across the country.
This event is part of a US tour celebrating the release of Occupied London’s
latest project: a book titled ‘Revolt and Crisis in Greece: Between a Present Yet to Pass and a Future Yet to Come’, published by AK Press. More info at: revoltcrisis.org
Taking some of the themes emerging from the book’s twenty chapters as a starting point, they will be discussing trajectories of struggle and resistance in recent years, the current economic reality in Greece defined by austerity, ways in which people are affected on an everyday level, and
emergent potentialities for struggle.
