(en) afed.cz: Autonomous policy for the 21st century - Short report on the final hours of the first series of courses strategic thinking. [machine translation]

Date Tue, 16 Feb 2016 14:05:40 +0200

In Prague autonomous social center clinic on Saturday, February 13 held a discussion meeting on the occasion of completion of the courses strategic thinking, which began June 2 and approximately every month is devoted to issues of autonomous policy. A major attraction became lecture Theodoros Karyotise, Greek activist, sociologist and contributors online magazine ROAR. ---- "Lecture Room" was just after four in the afternoon is filled almost to bursting. There were crammed with nearly 80 people, and some are not fit inside. For small knot of those who govern the English language, was prepared professional simultaneous translation, so even they lost nothing, and Theo could speak fluently. ---- First, he spoke about the transformation of the capitalist system, changing the relations of production, and thus the transformation of the classical industrial proletariat, to build on the theme of neo-liberalism as an ideological doctrine, which will fully enforce started from the 80s of the last century and whose captivity now towers. On the example of Greece showed the process of neoliberal restructuring within the boundaries of the nation state. He pointed to self-destruct efforts to attract foreign investors into the country, and nicnerešící call for economic reconstruction nationally outside the EU. As a viable alternative to that proposed a grassroots movement organized a solidarity economy, the transition to collective ways of ownership and management. While in Greece, such a movement can be observed with the cooperatives, folk clinics and the occupied premises, such as. Fabrika Vio.Me in which Theo involved, constantly hovering over him the threat of repression and co-optation of one system to the other side. Also did not forget to bring criticism of the current Greek government, headed by the nominally leftist party Syriza.

After the questions, answers and break, during which listeners could be completely voluntary contribution vegan refreshments at the "buffet", took the word activist collective Clinics, Ernest Smith. He spoke partly about advancing neoliberalism, like Theo, but with regard to the Czech reality. Autonomous policy, as proposed direction of the local anti-authoritarian movement, framed by several controversies, which elsewhere in the world have already taken place or are ongoing. Thus he spoke about commons, policies or request a hearing on prefigurativní politics. Then everything very clearly illustrated by the example of clinic, discussions that are within it leads, and processes that their individual and collective practice accompany.

Despite the cold, which was beginning to "lecture room" intrude unpleasantly, resumed the final hour of general debate of the course, where everyone could ask a question or express their own opinion. Questions were raised autonomous projects related to the political parties, the possibility of misuse autonomous practice of fascist forces and the danger that particular solidarity autonomous projects can benefit the neoliberal state, which can comfortably disposing of social roles that should play. It was also interesting Theo's story about the problems squats established for Refugees, which is quite a large turnover of people and it is difficult to collectively create common rules. Query on global autonomous administration remained open as practically very early in the current situation and the future seemed determined specific context and needs.

Both lectures, as well as additional and final debate was very inspiring. There were to be found in many large compliance with the debate, which was held in the summer at the clinic of the 20th anniversary of the Anarchist Federation and tried to find the direction of anarchist politics for years to come. We hope to record soon the whole evening to listen to the Internet, as was the case with previous meetings in the course.
