All across southern Europe the whiff of revolution is in the air. From Spain to Italy, to Greece and beyond, hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets. In Greece, the elections will play out, though whichever party forms the next government is to a large extent irrelevant as people have been organising for years via street committees, assemblies and similar groups, setting up a parallel economy – ‘government’ based on mutual aid.
This remarkable film, below, by Reel News, which will shortly be releasing a series of similar films about life in Greece, provides an insight into how people in Greece are organising at community level to bring about this quiet revolution.
Here, too, is an article in The Guardian on the revolutionary tendencies across southern Europe… Quote re Greece: “In a country with a thriving anarchist community and anti-establishment bloc, ‘resistance’ is a word that is never far away: it is scrawled in graffiti, large and small, over the facades of buildings nationwide.”
Interesting times ahead…
