Occupied London

Interview with Occupied London

This interview follows our review of Occupied London’s new edited book ‘Occupied London: Revolt and Crisis in Greece’. The book deals with the uprisings in Greece in 2008 that followed the police assassination of a young man in Athens. Originally published in September 2011.

Revolt and crisis in Greece: between a present yet to pass and a future still to come

How does a revolt come about and what does it leave behind? What impact does it have on those who participate in it and those who simply watch it? Is the Greek revolt of December 2008 confined to the shores of the Mediterranean, or are there lessons we can bring to bear on social action around the globe? Revolt and Crisis in Greece: Between a Present Yet to Pass and a Future Still to Come is a collective attempt to grapple with these questions. A collaboration between anarchist publishing collectives Occupied London and AK Press, this timely new volume traces Greece's long moment of transition from the revolt of 2008 to the economic crisis that followed.
