Salt - what it's worth

January 2012

After too many months of preparation, escalate collective’s new text SALT is available to download!

This piece, more extensive than our previous interventions, offers a history of the economic crisis of capitalist deferral particularly with reference to struggles in the United Kingdom

Escalate is a collective of writers and activists from around the University of London. Brought together through protest, we come from a variety of political backgrounds but write and edit our work collectively. Anonymity frees us from reputation-seeking and ideological dead weight. We have no wish to contain or regulate the diversity of the movement. We are not its 'voice'. Our writing focuses on the current political situation: insofar as it learns from the past, it refuses nostalgia. We aim to provide analysis and critique that can inform the movement both practically and politically.
