Miquel Amorós: The New Suits of Capitalist Developmentism: The new Green Period of Capitalism and its Ecological and Citizen Avant-Garde

The capitalist world is debating in an unprecedented ecological crisis that threatens its continuity as a system based on the pursuit of private profit. From the pollution of air, water and soil to the accumulation of waste and rubbish; from the depletion of natural resources to the extinction of species; from the urbanizing tide to climate change; it seems that a sword of Damocles hangs over the market society. Leaders from all spheres of activity are concerned about unstoppable environmental degradation, including a reorganization of production and consumption according to inevitable ecological imperatives.

The #YellowVests #insurrection and the revolution of the #revolution – “Will the #GJ’s help us to break out of the efficiency paradigm?”

The following piece was published on Lundi Matin (Which is believed to be close with the Invisible Committee) on May 20. “All political thought, Marxist, revolutionary, anarchist, etc., is locked in the liberal economic prison. It has never left the 18th century of “Scottish materialism”.”

The uprising of the Yellow Vests can be interpreted as a resurgence of the oldest revolt movements – an emotion or a peasant revolt, a symptomatic resurgence of the state of enlightened despotism (for the economy) regained, a characteristic resurgence of the former regime ending configuratized as liberal technocracy (Physiocrats, Thermidorians or Versailles) and brought following counter-revolutionary movements to life.

Or, rather, this uprising can also be interpreted as the first insurrection of a new revolutionary era, the era of the revolution of the revolution – symptomatic of a new political era that emerges by dissolving or destituting liberal hegemony.

#NolympicsAnywhere: 5 Lessons in Olympic Resistance from #Rio

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: The Olympics are a globetrotting behemoth that leave a trail of destruction in their wake. The problems associated with the event are not isolated cases of poor governance and mismanagement as they are often portrayed. The model itself is broken. Yet the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has shown little appetite for change, its piecemeal Agenda 2020 reforms dismissed by Olympics scholar Jules Boykoff as “baby steps where bold strides are required.”

Regarding all that happened in an event in #Germany with a member of the central committee of #SYRIZA, the Greek leading party

On the 9th of December, in a small, peaceful city of south Germany, named Konstanz, a business-political event took place, where the main  speaker was Georgios Chondros, a member of the central committee of SYRIZA, the Greek leading party. The first topic to be presented there  was related to the promotion of the olive oil produced by the cooperative company whose administrative member is Chondros, among  others. Given that a charitable mask often covers “progressive commerce”, the event held the provocative character of cheap solidarity; for every litter of oil that would be sold that day, one euro (1€!) would be granted to a social pharmacy in Greece. Let us note here that these “hope traders” earned at least 11 euros from each sold litter of oil. The second part of this event was the presentation of the socio-political situation in Greece, accompanied by Greek appetizers and wine.
