Short comments on Mike Davis’ “Old Gods and New Enigmas - Notes on Revolutionary Agency”

We decided to read and discuss Mike’s text because the question he is asking is a pertinent one: ‘who can become a social force of revolution?’ By looking at what constituted revolutionary agency during the peak-time of working class radicalism between 1870 and 1920, we can perhaps better assess our chances in the present.

The Yellow Vests’ protests cause traffic jams in west-London warehouses

A friend of ours works in a small warehouse in west-London that organises shipments between the UK and the British Virgin Islands. Recently conveyor parts deliveries were delayed by road blockades in France, organised by people who protest against the diesel tax increase. But not only that, they were also delayed by the cumbersome sub-contractor system within the logistics chain. The chains are weak, let’s lose them! Here is his story...

Class relations in the US - A background text

We wrote this text last year, as a reading suggestion for our debate on current class struggle in the US. We thought it might still be of interest. It focusses on the 'internal dynamics' rather than US foreign (military) policy...
