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
), David Graeber (Emergency Exit Collective
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.
