Posstscript: the insurrectional perspective

19-07-2007 01:23

More than a year has passed since we finished the second issue of our journal Dissident, which introduced insurrectional anarchism in Sweden. We chose to introduce the insurrectional perspective because we think it brings us valuable insights and experiences. These include the critique of organisational fetishism and activism, the shift of perspective from the mass to the active minority, and the importance of projectuality.

Members of Birmingham's Iranian Refugee Association today held a commemorative picket at the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal (IAT) in Sheldon, Birmingham, to remember the death of their friend Babak Ahadi, who took his own life two years ago.
