Experiments that might get out of control... May 27 2011
By Autonomeus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This short book (150 pages) originated as a newspaper distributed at the June 2007 protests against the G8 summit at Heiligendamm, Germany. 14 articles were commissioned by the Turbulence Collective, representing a diverse set of views within the "movement of movements" that is sometimes called the global justice movement, the movement(s) best known for "The Battle in Seattle" protest against the WTO of late 1999 and a series of similar protests since then. Some of the young Turbulence Collective members are clearly pursuing the academic career path, but since they are not yet tenured professors they can still be considered organic intellectuals, to use Gramsci's term, activists who are articulating theory largely from their own experience.

It is a stimulating collection of interest to anyone who shares the Collective's goals of an egalitarian world and social relations that are no longer destroying the ecosystem. I found the most amazing piece to be "Enclosing the enclosers" by Gustavo Esteva, which describes the development of the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO) in 2006. This direct democratic dual power in the Mexican city of 600,000 drove the police from the streets after beginning as protests against a corrupt governor. APPO was crushed by the Mexican Federal Police in November after five months of things getting very much out of the control of the authorities.

A postscript and an interview with Pacifica Radio update the original WHAT WOULD IT MEAN TO WIN? to 2009. The Collective has now produced five issues (which can be found at turbulence.org.uk).

What this project embodies very well is a sense of experimentation, of forward motion, of comradery, of not having the answers, and of the fun and exhilaration of being part of a movement for radical change!
