Venezuela - The Country of Parallels

03-06-2005 03:36

Wednesday, May 11, 2005

On a parallel street, within walking distance from the presidential palace, you can find a squatted building taken over and run by communities. It is an old office building, very close to one of the most touristic squares in downtown Caracas: Bellas Artes and the huge hotel Hilton, which nowadays also hosts Bolivarian conferences and friends of the revolution. A theatre rehearsal is the activity on the Saturday afternoon when I visit the building. People of all ages are represented on that main floor built to be a fancy reception and not a centre for community activities.

Video footage of the Birmingham G7 protests May 1998

17-05-2005 12:07

Reclaim the Streets Flyer
May 1998 saw a global street party take place in Birmingham to coincide with the G7 summit being hosted in the city. The following downloadable films contain footage of the street party.

"Reclaim the Streets - Birmingham, UK. An organised street party erupts during the G8 summit." April 1997 (20mb/5'28min)

Reclaim the Streets - the film!

"May 1995, London, England. A small group of people decide to organise an illegal street party in Camden, a part of the city renowned for its consumerism and incessant traffic. The final location is kept secret, because they know that the state and business will not be amused. Reclaim the Streets! is born, a cocktail of raging love, revolutionary carnival, art and anarchy. Since then, clandestine street parties have erupted all over the world. From Hull to Sidney, Lyon to Tel Aviv, Vancouver to Valencia, people are taking back their streets. And this is only beginning."

Download the Reclaim the Streets film here - it's got footage of the Birmingham G7 street party.
