Unruly Life: Subverting ‘Surplus’ Existence in Tunisia

Mabrouk Ghodbani from Kasserine, Tunisia shows his stitched lips. Rached was on hunger strike from 24 January 2016 when he decided on January 27 to sew his lips in protest against the interim government.

 

Taking the case of Tunisia’s Dignity Revolution, Oana Parvan examines the structural connections between the growing global category of those designated ‘surplus life’ by the neo-imperial economy – and by extension, condemned to social and often actual death – and the preconditions of revolution

 

The 'working class should have voted Bernie, not Hilary (that neoliberal machine!)' argument is an apology for a racist, because exclusively white, conception of those disposessed by neoliberalism, and a nostalgia for an older order of national(ist), closed-border capitalism – argues Angela Mitropoulos

Lest We Forget

Field Punishment No. 1, as depicted in a contemporary War Office illustration.

Brian Ashton outlines a catalogue of cruel and harsh treatment meted out on the soldiers of the British military during the First World War set against a background of the use of force against working class struggles in pre-war Britain. Maltreatment of workers and soldiers continued through the entire war, with the shell shocked soldiers subject to sadistic treatments born of propaganda encouraging mistrust of the working class. In what is still a little-told story, of those traumatised by the violence of the war, Ashton brings together the accounts and records that document this period.

Nervous Costume

Madame Tlank digresses from and back to Anne Boyer’s Garments Against Women, which is many things. A memoir written by someone without a history. A garment made for no-body. A reproduction fin in a great fleet of sharks

Athens and the Bankers

Andreas Embirikos (1901-1975) came from a wealthy family as his father was an important ship-owner.

The Greek crisis is often diminished to a simple story of Debt versus the People. Richard B moves between the symptomatic details of everyday life in Athens today and the deep history of the crisis to recover gleams of human possibility beyond the narrative of bad bankers and rad technocrats

 

Chronicle of a Crash Foretold

In John Barker’s Futures, an expertly crafted crime novel exploring cocaine trafficking in Thatcherite London, Tom Jennings finds a parable of neoliberalism with considerably broader resonance

 

Inextinguishable Fire: Ferguson and beyond

Ferguson rebel holds up sign

The cop murder of Mike Brown and the subsequent eruption in Ferguson and around the US have raised questions about the value of racialised life and the forms of struggle against race emerging in the face of displacement, immiseration and militarised policing. R.L. traces the coordinates of a militant younger generation that has a different relation to race and class belonging
