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.

"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."

Birth year







Martin Petrič, (Postojna 1983)
Visual designer, illustrator and visual artist concentrated on practicing and exploring traditonal and contemporary techniques in art and bringing them to public. Visual thinker and responsible communication ambasador, always opening new connections between artists and educators. I have created a link between education and conventional and alternative practices and theories trough curating Vajkard workshop in collaboration with my mentor Zdravko Papič, Academy of fine arts in Ljubljana and others. My work is dedicated to exploring individual creativity and diversification of visual languages. I am working in Art, Design and Education fields for more than 15 years.

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

Collaboration with interesting people.

Always searching for new forms of visual "poetry" in different media, i do not confine my work on any specific style or media, in fact, I try to conscously avoid developing any visible styles of my work, which i know is near to impossible. But i like to think this helps me to explore visual affinities of diverse cultural or market oriented groups, movements or entities. This all derives from my will to try to understand the contexts of visual languages different cultures use, and consequently, i try to understand each visual culture and it's powers.
