The most important lesson I would take from the last years uprisings is that these tactics work. On the other hand it has become undeniable that there has been enemy involvement, conscious work done by groups gained experience from Velvet revolutions in Eastern Europe in deploying such tactics for the sake of the transnational intra-capitalist class struggle. There is however much larger collective learning and strategizing processs out side the enemy line and control, by the people for them selves. In order to transform this ‘our own’ tacit knowledge on these tactics into living systematic one in order to continue and realise the Global rEvolution is an urgent need.
We certainly need a wide open transnational public debate on the issue! On the one hand we all need to know how and who uses these tactics in paralel to enemy’s interest, what are the exact relationships between Otpor and Canvas and local groups as well as the actors of transnational capitalist class struggle -within the US and on the global scale, what role they have been playing in triggering and manuplating grassroots uprisings; and on the other hand we, as independent grasroots, need to build a clear reflections on our own experiences, tactics and strategies we have been inventing and sharing accross countries along the way, and so how will we systematize these tacit knowledge is vital.
It is very useful, at least to me and for the first part of the question, to get informed by transnational historical materialist (Cox, Gill, van der Pijl…), geographical historical materialist (Harvey), post-automonous and other useful accounts on Global Capitalism and new imperialism, as well as other important anarchist and horizontalist discussions.
