We checked 100 years of protests in 150 countries. Here’s what we learned about the working class and democracy.
The success of mass protests depends on who is doing the protesting.

'...Industrial workers have been key agents of democratization and, if anything, are even more important than the urban middle classes. When industrial workers mobilize mass opposition against a dictatorship, democratization is very likely to follow.'

An audio-visual archival resource focusing on radical activism around Australia, particularly during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s (although resources are not restricted exclusively to this time period).

The archive recovers "lost" and rare independent Australian documentaries (also vérité footage of historical significance) in order to preserve these films, videos and audio for posterity before they reach end of life and disappear permanently.

The focus is on visual/aural material.....the archive currently has 204 film streams and 91 audio streams.

There is a reason we call each other "comrades" and not "friends" on the Memefest network.

Here a new book From Jodi Dean: Comrade
An Essay on Political Belonging

When people say “comrade”, they change the world

In the twentieth-century millions of people across the globe addressed each other as “comrade”. Now, it’s more common to hear talk of “allies” on the left than it is of comrades. In Comrade, Jodi Dean insists that this shift exemplifies the key problem with the contemporary left: the substitution of political identity for a relation of political belonging that must be built, sustained, and defended.

In Comrade, Dean offers a theory of the comrade. Comrades are equals on the same side of a political struggle. Voluntarily coming together in the struggle for justice, their relationship is characterised by discipline, joy, courage, and enthusiasm. Considering the generic egalitarianism of the comrade in light of differences of race and gender, Dean draws from an array of historical and literary examples such as Harry Haywood, C.L.R James, Alexandra Kollontai, and Doris Lessing. She argues that if we are to be a left at all, we have to be comrades.

Thanks Oliver, sounds like an interesting essay. Especially for those of us who grew up with this notion of camerade.
Cheers

"During the introduction of a recent speech by Donald Trump at Turning Point USA Teen Student Action Summit, someone — reportedly by accident and has since been fired from Turning Point — pasted into the slides a 2016 faux seal created by Charles Leazott that features an eagle holding wads of cash and golf clubs with a ribbon that says, in Spanish, “45 is a Puppet”. Score one for the resistance."

Description

Holding a bachelor in graphic design, I’ve always been interested in communication issues that go beyond layout. After an internship in South Africa with Alternatives in 2003, I’ve been employed by Québec civil society groups such as Communautique and Koumbit, two organisations that work primarily in the ICT field, and Alternatives a international solidarity NGO. I just moved from Montreal to Johannesburg.
