John Holloway, Puebla, 6 June 2013
Taksim Tahrir Sintagma Puerta del Sol Plaza de Mayo Zuccotti Square St. Paul’s. Everywhere around the world we are dancing in the streets. Dancing with rage, dancing with joy, dancing gravediggers on the graves of our masters. We are all Turks, all Greeks, all Cypriots. And now we are all chapuling, chapuling as we sing out loud our refusal to accept any more, our refusal to watch them destroy parks to make way for shopping malls, our refusal to accept their obscene injustices, refusal to sit by and let them destroy the planet, refusal to let them take our world from us, refusal to accept their stupid arrogance. So dance Istanbul, dance Ankara, dance Izmir, and the world dances with you. Cairo, Athens, Istanbul, Madrid, New York, London, Buenos Aires, Frankfurt, Cochabamba, Stockholm, and more and more and more and more and more.
Marxist sociologist John Holloway argues that a world after capitalism is already being imagined in struggles around the world. In the first of a six-part series, which will see an author’s words accompanied by animation by students at Central Saint Martins college, Carolina Aguirre, Lucas Gloppe and Magnus Lenneskog interpret Holloway’s words.
