Prospects for the rising European movement
“There is talk of Europe’s future, and the need to harmonize banks, insurance companies, markets, businesses, police: consensus, consensus and more consensus. But in becoming a people, doesn’t Europe prepare us for a new future in construction, perhaps a new ’68?” (G. Deleuze)
The victory of Blockupy Frankfurt
The phase of the crisis we are experiencing is characterized, in Europe, by a total redefinition of the forms of capitalist command. By now many, not only in the movements, have realized that what we are looking at is the final divorce between capitalism and democracy, the inability of capital to govern this stage without affecting social and political rights.
In recent years many movements have highlighted this situation, from the Spanish acampadas to the Occupy movement, from the Arab spring to the tragic outcome of the crisis in Greece, whose citizens where first denied the possibility to vote a referendum on austerity measures, to then move on to Merkel’s and other European leaders direct threat during the pre-electoral talks.
