UK based writers discuss new book and their experiences in Greece.Added to the calendar on Thursday Mar 24th, 2011 1:41 AM
Writers and researchers from the UK based website Occupied London will be coming to Modesto as part of a tour promoting the release of their new book Between a Present Yet to Go and a Future Yet to Come: Revolt and Crisis in Greece. Since the Greek Insurrection of December 2008 the OL blog has been an important source of English language updates from the streets of Athens, Thessaloniki and other cities across the country.
Taking some of the themes emerging from the book’s twenty chapters as a starting point, they will be discussing trajectories of struggle and resistance in recent years, the current economic reality in Greece defined by austerity, ways in which people are affected on an everyday level, and emergent potentialities for struggle.
The event will be free although donations for the presenters are strongly encouraged. Please also be sure to pick up a copy of the book if you are interested. Food will be on hand as well as free copies of Modesto Anarcho, Revolutionary Hip-Hop Report, and other exciting titles. Bring a friend and/or co-worker and come out! The event takes place at Firehouse 51, Tuesday, April 12th, and starts at 7pm. Below is flyer for printing.
