Truth Hurts

I’m following the current Occupy Wallstreet movement in the US with great interest. There are so many different individuals, causes and organizations participating, making it difficult to get a clear picture of what this is really about. I will try to update this post with links to articles and other material that explains what is afoot.

The Guardian: Occupy Wall Street rediscovers the radical imagination, by David Graeber
The young people protesting in Wall Street and beyond reject this vain economic order. They have come to reclaim the future.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the real priority of those running the world for the last few decades has not been creating a viable form of capitalism, but rather, convincing us all that the current form of capitalism is the only conceivable economic system, so its flaws are irrelevant. As a result, we’re all sitting around dumbfounded as the whole apparatus falls apart.

Telestreet: The Italian Media Jacking Movement

Published juni 8th, 2005 by

«A short documentary exploring Italy’s Telestreet phenomena, a network of close to 200 micro pirate TV transmitters that begun in the summer of 2002 to counter the media monopoly of Silvio Berlusconi. Perhaps the most interesting tactical media initiative of recent times, the TeleStreet network combines both old and new media, lo-tech and hi-tech.

The documentary speaks with activists from TeleAut and SpegnilaTV and media theorist Franco Berardi (Bifo). »

Pixelpeople – I grabbed the face of some random fat politician off my television using a cheap tv card, and manipulated the shit out of it. The pixelpeople-series is my attemt to find something of beauty and poetry where there is none. You should to.

Introducing the Blair watch project from Guardian Unlimited: Election 2005

«Devoted Guardian readers will have read Oliver Burkeman’s account of trying to keep track of Tony Blair in Dorset South yesterday, in which he describes how misdirection sent reporters scampering across southern England, in a ‘meandering day-trip’ in search of the prime minister.

Oliver writes: ‘Labour appears intent on pursuing a campaign strategy of severely limiting the exposure of the prime minister to media questioning, dismissing criticisms of this technique as the self-absorbed concerns of the ‘Westminster village’.’

Well, limited access means we need your help to keep up with Mr Blair. So today we announce the Blair Watch Project, where we ask you to send us your photos of the PM on the campaign trail. All pictures will appear on our Flickr account – which anyone can look at – with the best appearing here on the blog.»
