Reflections on the December Insurrection, the Economic Crisis, and Ongoing Struggles in Greece and Beyond
Multimedia Presentation and Discussion
Dimitris Dalakoglou and Antonis Vradis are founders of the anarchist journal and blog "Occupied London," and active members of Greek and European social movements. Since the Greek insurrection of December 2008, the blog has been one of the most important sources of English-language updates from the streets of Athens, Thessaloniki, and other cities across the country. Dimitris and Antonis recently finished editing the Occupied London book covering the country's recent transformations from the revolt of 2008 to the current economic crisis. Taking some of the themes emerging from the book as a starting point, they will be discussing trajectories of struggle and resistance in recent years, the current economic reality in the country defined by austerity, ways in which people are affected on an everyday level, and emergent potentialities in this new landscape.
This presentation is part of the Occupied London tour celebrating the release of "Between a Present Yet to Go and a Future Yet to Come," the Occupied London book. For more info, see http://revoltcrisis.org/.
Antonis is a PhD candidate at London School of Economics in geography, editor of the Alternatives section of the journal "CITY," and editor of "Occupied London." His academic research focuses on the neighborhood of Exarcheia in Athens, Greece, and its concentration of most acts of mass political violence in the country in recent years.
Dimitris is a lecturer in social anthropology at the University of Sussex, UK, and an editor of "Occupied London." He is also on the editorial board of the "International Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest," and the editorial board of "WorkingUSA." He splits most of his time between the United Kingdom and Greece.
