Crunch Time: A New Wave of Struggles?

A Mute Magazine talk

As the global ruling class finally admits that the 'financial' crisis 
has spilt over into the real economy, the fiction that the credit crunch 
is containable has been dispelled. Will resistance to capital's 
genocidal expansion now become equally uncontainable? Can 
anti-capitalists take advantage of the global system's instability, or 
will austerity measures and gloves-off geopolitics triumph?

Kirsten Forkert (Private Equity Sucks campaign 
<http://www.privateequitysucks.com/>:http://www.privateequitysucks.com/ 
), David Graeber (Emergency Exit Collective 
<http://info.interactivist.net/node/11074>: 
http://info.interactivist.net/node/11074 ) and Niels (/End Notes/), 
discuss the impact of the financial crisis on social movements and 
explore the potential for a new cycle of struggle from peasants and oil 
workers to logistics industry employees and anti-finance activists.

5-6 pm, Lecture Room 1
