Since 4am of last tuesday morning the porters of the SDA* Roman warehouses in via di Corcolle went on strike in solidarity to the workers of the Bologna hub which were undergoing layoffs. After the breakup of the umpteenth negotiation table on monday, the answer of the porters, of their supporters and of the proletarians in struggle came strong and determined, with a most participated picket and a blockade of two hours and more of the incoming goods. At about…

Politicity of the Riot

by Simona de Simoni Transformations of the social reality depend on a mix of factors which render partial any unequivocal determination. To come to terms with the unshakeable uneasiness of the human world, in the contemporary critical geography, one often refers to a phenomenon of "turbulence". Such terminology, which in the scientific lexicon indicates the wild and whirling flows produced as a result of the meeting of great currents of air, pointedly, is mobilised to depict, in a metaphorical sense,…

L’Expo ne plaît pas à tout le monde

C’est une journée à multiples facettes que nous offre ce premier mai milanais. Premièrement et avant tout autre élément d’analyse, on peut constater que sont descendues dans la rue des dizaines de milliers de personnes qui représentent un spectre de la société non récupérable aujourd'hui par la représentation politique et du système des partis. Dans l'ensemble, cette présence a su exprimer avec force le refus d'une ville modelée autour de l'Expo, renversant fermement cette "valorisation du terroir" dont se gargarisent les…

Not everyone likes Expo

The First of May in Milan gives us a multi-faceted day. The first fundamental fact to realize is that those tens of thousands of people who took to the strees represent a social spectrum which cannot be co-opted by mainstream politics and party representation. Overall, these presences managed to strongly express the refutation of a city modeled around the Expo, firmly overturning that "valorization of the territory" that the bosses of food products content themselves with. Ultimately smashing that Expo-ization…
Ubersetzung aus dem Italienischen von Alina Maggiore: Siciliamigrants.blogspot.it Während die Zahlen der Ankünfte und der Toten im Mittelmeer und an den sizilianischen Küsten stetig wachsen (ungefähr 1200 allein in der vergangenen Nacht, mehr als 5000 in den letzten vier Tagen) ist heute Morgen in Palermo im Viertel Ballarò – Albergheria etwas Emblematisches vorgefallen, das uns nur zum Nachdenken anregen kann. In einem Viertel mit sehr hoher Bevölkerungsdichte und regelmäßigen Polizeirazzien und Blitzaktionen gegen ambulante Verkäufer und Händler des historischen Marktes…
Federico Annibale is a London-based Italian student that, on last March 18, was in Frankfurt - in order to participate together with thousands of other people in the demonstration against the opening of the new ECB headquarters. During the day of mobilization, Federico was arrested; and, since more than a month by now, he is jailed in the Frankfurt prison, awaiting his trial. His lawyers and friends tell that he is well and that receives and reads with glee the…
In the aftermath of the shipwreck that cost almost a thousand lives off the Sicilian coast, the only voices to be heard are those of a political class that exploits, misleads and howls in an indecently. Gentle racists lambast coarse racists, democrats study technical solutions to keep the "humanitarian crisis" out of sight and out of mind, intellectual defenders of legality call for moral rallies in the face of the barbarity produced by their own laws. True horror has the…
May 1, 2015: from Milan, capital of the crisis, to Europe After seven years of crisis the precarious pride has become rage and indignation against the burgeoning unemployment and the growth of poverty imposed by BCE & IMF  to most of the population with austerity policies, particularly in Italy, Greece and the rest of the Latin Europe. Social slaughter, plunder of wealth and common goods, the end of the public city are the bases upon which governments build their response to the economic crisis. The whole…
Last saturday, March 28, many cities mobilized for the date called by the Abitare nella Crisi network against Renzi government and austerity policies. A decentralized mobilization from northern to southern Italy, that featured as its protagonists the struggle movements, unavailable to make a step back in the fight against a development model centered on the great works system, devastation of the territories, precarity, racism and war on poors. In the many rebel and mestizo squares, packed with thousands of men…
