Crisis in Portugal: Skype Discussion

As part of Making Worlds’ collective discussion on the current crisis and social movements in southern Europe, we will be facilitating a discussion with comrades in Lisbon. Resistance to austerity in Portugal has picked up in recent months, so we’re looking forward to hearing the latest reports from the ground on the situation there. We’ll hear from folks involved in Edicoes Antipaticas, RDA 69, Spectrum, and Unipop.

As it says in Making Worlds description of the event, “Continuing with the project of exercising history as a commons… we will create a timeline… collecting memories and stories of what has been happening in Greece, Portugal and Spain so as to open our movement to a dialogue with other critical situations that have led to innovative political happenings.

“Since we do not learn much from the media, we would like to start creating our own narratives, seeing how much we know of the different movements and critical situations that have been taking place in the world and how much can we still ask and learn…

“Please bring your thoughts, ideas, memories, and anything you think can help us to build a shared knowledge and make sense (a “common sense”) of how a common history (or a history built up in common) would look like.”
