The Greek uprising is truly going European!

March 10th, 2010 · posted by occupied london · marked as: Articles · resistance

It is Wednesday, March 10th – the eve of the third recent strike in Greece. “I don’t really earn enough to get a cab to tomorrow’s demonstration”, writes a commentator on Athens IMC. “And there’s no public transport, as everyone is participating in the strike. Good for them. We are driving down there tonight, staying with a friend. And we’ll be using the car’s engine oil to wash the streets, our little gift to the thugs of the police’s motor-cycle Delta force.” Our friend’s from Occupied London give some context on what might happen tomorrow at the general strike, which we’ll be covering here tomorrow.

Revolt Chic (if you can’t beat it, recuperate it!)

December 24th, 2009 · posted by occupied london · marked as: Articles · resistance

Antonis from Occupied London writes about how the last December’s revolt has been recuperated by the very organisations and institutions that it was targeting. Alexis Grigoropoulos’s death becomes just another event for the corporate media to sell objects with. But… But perhaps, there’s still some glimmer of hope left on the streets?

Children of December get ready for a new winter

August 28th, 2009 · posted by occupied london · marked as: Articles · resistance

Two Greek anarchists have written a short overview of the struggles that are continuing to engulf Greece in the summer after their December revolt. Exploring, in brief, the state’s counter-revolt and the continuing attacks on migrants and Thodoris Iliopoulos, it is an interesting account of the past few months. A more substantial piece will be appearing on Last Hours in the near future, and in Last Hours issue 18 after that.

Crunch Time: A New Wave of Struggles?

October 21st, 2008 · posted by occupied london · marked as: Articles · resistance

What do a performance artist, an anarchist anthropologist and a magazine editor have to say about private equity, the sub-prime crisis and the new challenges for the working class and everyone that allies with it? Quite a lot, apparently.

Seth Tobocman and Nicole Schulman

September 19th, 2008 · posted by occupied london · marked as: Interviews

I first saw Seth Tobocman’s work at the Babel Comics Festival in Athens, where he had drawn a huge anti-war mural together with some other of the World War Three Illustrated crew. Much of his work is a bit of a legend for us Europeans, not least because his artwork – not least his book ‘War in the Neighbourhood’ – is so hard to find on this side of the Atlantic!
