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.

#Paris on #MayDay: “They want us to taste the fear of death” – Eyewitness account of a protester

The Facebook page of the “Gilets Jaunes info in English” translated this personal account from the madness of the 1st of May in Paris. Of note is the sheer horror of being subject to this brutal police violence, and the on-the-ground reality of what happened at the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital which has been scandalously lied about across the media – the “attackers” were escaping the police kettle through the hospital, and responding to shocking repression.

#MayDay 2019 in #Paris: Change of an Era

Paris: The Parisian May Day demonstration marks a change of an era. In any case, that is what Serge Quadruppani says in this article. A trade union demonstration that has become an absolute minority, just symbolic; a Black block that has been announced, awaited and feared but which does not finally come; yellow vests everywhere but which do not fall into the identity trap, an overwhelmingly majority joins the front of the demonstration, to the extent of becoming the demonstration at all. This May Day demonstration proved to be globally and literally autonomous.
