Build up to N30 strike and John Holloway to talk at OccupyLSX tomorrow
We are very excited to have John Holloway (Professor, Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades, Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla), one of the world’s leading theorists of capitalism and resistance, come to speak to us tomorrow at 5.30pm in front of the steps of St. Paul’s.
His book Change the World Without Taking Power has been translated into eleven languages and has stirred an international debate. His recent book, Crack Capitalism, takes the argument further by suggesting that the only way in which we can think of revolution today is as the creation, expansion, multiplication and confluence of cracks in capitalist domination.
His work has huge relevance to the occupy movement and this talk offers a chance for the occupation and observers to discuss ideas of what gives the movement strength and where the movement should be going while looking at examples from Chiapas to Greece.
Before this event Tent City University are organising events in the lead up to the November 30th strikes looking at ‘what is work?’ and ‘what does it mean to stirke?’.
