Jacques Fradin: “Gilets Jaunes: Fractures and lines of escape”

And if the insurrection is to continue, it must fracture, divide and separate, create new autonomies both in the fissures of society and the Movement.

Pierre Dardot: “With the ‘gilets jaunes’: against representation, for democracy”

“Urgency demands that we act in the movement as it is and with the gilets jaunes,taking them as they are and not as we would like them to be; resolutely supporting everything that goes in the direction of self-organization and democracy. Let’s repeat, it’s not over yet. The present is new, the future is open and our action matters, here and now. Act V.”

Ines Schwerdtner: “One, Two, Many Rosa Luxemburgs”

“On the 100th anniversary of her murder, Rosa Luxemburg’s incredible life provides us with a model — not necessarily of what to do, but of how to do it.”

CrimethInc.: “Between the Reaction and the Referendum”

“Several questions remain. How can we make sure that the ways we participate in the yellow vest movement and others like it won’t be simply perceived as an “apolitical” expression of anger, giving nationalists a platform to take credit for our efforts? When we act to create a crisis, how do we prevent far right parties from capitalizing on it by promising a return to normal? How do we confront legalist and reactionary ideas within the movement? How should we prepare for the next round, in which we will either face a stronger repressive and authoritarian state or a massive nationalist and reactionary wave? But also—how can we reinforce our connections with everyone else in the streets and traffic circles?”

Julius Gavroche: “The gilets jaunes: Towards a permanent insurrection”

“At the very heart of anarchism is the radical and uncompromising celebration of autonomy. And what is autonomy if not the permanent possibility of refusal and insurrection, of destruction and/or creation.”

Laurence Cox: ‘The revolutionary challenge of “the long 1968”’

“The struggles of 1968 remade the landscape of social movements and popular resistance for decades to come. What do these struggles have to tell us today?”

Void Network: ‘Signs of the times/Images from the future: Thoughts on the “yellow vests” and the revolt in France.’

“the question faced by the politicized minorities that still raise red and black flags remains: can we participate in something that exceeds us, in struggles that pose the problem of organization and justice on the level of a historical stake, to find ourselves next to people that we do not agree nor identify with, to risk, to err, to be disappointed? If the answer is negative, we can verbalize about revolution, but we will not be one of its productive vectors.”

lundimatin: “The specter of chaos”

“The specter of chaos or anarchy is brandished by those who rule the world and benefit from it. Anarchy and chaos are identified and this identification is an illusion that the negation of order leads to chaos. What is denied by revolt or revolution is not order in general but this particular order.”

‘Temps critiques’: “A yellow costume that creates community”

“If we agree that yellow vests have developed an autonomous movement, we will not go so far as to say that they self-organise themselves in the ideological sense of self-organisation, as conceived by historical councilists or libertarians. It is an immediate self-organisation that leads to nothing but his own immediate practice.”

Raoul Vaneigem interview and “The reasons for the anger” on the gilets jaunes

“Everything is possible, even self-managing assemblies in the middle of street intersections, villages and neighborhoods.”
