This talk will look at the contemporary Athenian anarchist and anti-authoritarian milieu and their on-the-ground struggles against capitalism, the state and the rise of fascism.
Presented by Nick – a Jura Collective member who recently completed a phd at Macquarie University, based on his research in Athens.
Nick will consider how militant protest actions act as expressions of collective grievance, desire for retaliation against police injustices and as manifestations of anarchist and anti-authoritarian praxis. He will also explore how varying shades of anarchic tendencies and ensuing ideological and practical disagreements are, for the most part, overcome in these often violent Athenian street-protests.
The talk will be followed by discussion.
2pm, Sunday 24 August at Jura.
