Yesterday in the late morning a police operation kicked off in Turin, leading to the arrest of 6 comrades of the Askatasuna social centre. The charges refer to the march last March 28 during the speech by Northern League secretary Matteo Salvini. In those months that fascist-leagueist character was crossing the squares of several Italian cities, attempting to rally consensus around racist and xenophobic discourses, which were functional to maintain his own privileges of politician and to address discontent to…

We interviewed Geroge Caffentzis (editor of Midnight Notes) in Athens, in the week between the massive No vote and the signature of the diminished Tsipras. Occupied for years by new mechanisms of expropriation (new enclosures) and resistance (commoning) on the global scale, his gaze has the benefit of reading the Greek crisis in the context of the great transformations of capitalism of the last decade. A good antidote for the easy enthusiasms and the likewise sudden depressions of our home.…
του Raffaele Sciortino 6 ιουλίου ‘15 Μια απελευθέρωση ενεργειών, ένα μικρό μεγάλο όχι συντακτικό: η ελληνική ψήφος έφερε σε μιαν Ευρώπη ασφυκτική, προσκολλημένη στο status quo, ένα τμήμα Λατινικής Αμερικής. Με αυτό δεν έσπασε την απομόνωση της ελληνικής αντίστασης, δεν μπορεί μόνη της, αλλά  -πάθος ενάντια στον εκβιασμό, αξιοπρέπεια ενάντια στον φόβο – πέταξε στα μούτρα όλων τις συνέπειες μιας κρίσης που οι καρχαρίες της ευρωσκατοκρατίας και της οικονομίας εκεί ψηλά, κουτά κοινωνικά στρώματα ή σε παραίτηση ή ακόμη παραπλανημένα στα…

Grexit, first Act

by Raffaele Sciortino   [ITA] It was easy to expect that they would have made the Greeks pay for OXI, and so was it. In the light of the most harsh outcome of the "negotiation" between the Greek government and the Eurogroup, the discussion now revolves around pro- and anti-Tsipras stances - has he betrayed the people's mandate or not? - and/or the question of whether the price to save Europe was maybe too hefty. A discussion, to say the…

Greece, austerity and the questions to pose

Besides the specific interpretations, "in Athens" or "on Athens" a deepening of tensions and decomposition of power forms is underway - the latter, for a long time now, not able anymore to propose stable governance relationships within the European province; and materializing, once again, the specter of a Political that increasingly gets polarized in its "extreme" conditions of friendship and hostility. With respect to Athens, for those who look to it, feel empathy and see there an unfolding development, the…
In the early hours of the morning police surrounded the Spazio Popolare Neruda, the building that was occupied a couple of weeks ago by about thirty families under eviction, in order to proceed with the eviction. About thirty people, among which ten little children or so, were inside the building - a former school that the municipality gave to the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti [TN - a joint-stock company under public control] in 2013. Some comrades are resisting on the…

The Time of Refusal

Right from the start of our national debate over the Greek situation we have been criticizing a two-fold ideological attitude: on one hand that of those uncritically recognizing the "good morning" in Syriza, hoping to export to Italy the successful electoral remedy; on the other hand that of those who, equally uncritically, withdrew into sectarian positions, accusing Tsipras' party to have dried up the struggleas and hoping in its failure. Against the former ones, we think that the game of…
