Cs und Schlagstockgewitter in Chianocco – Notav ungebrochen

Donnerstag, März 1st, 2012

Die Ordnungskräfte zogen am Mittwochabend 29/02/2012 alle Register, um der notav Bewegung so nachhaltig wie möglich zuzusetzen, die aber nicht daran denkt, sich zurück zu ziehen. Die seit nunmehr drei Tagen anhaltende Blockade der Hauptverkehrsadern des Tals war gestern am frühen Abend von einem ungeheuer massiven Polizei- und Carabinieri Aufgebot gebrochen worden. Die Räumung der Autobahnblockade bei Bussoleno im niederen Susa Tal ging zunächst eher unblutig vonstatten. Nach Anbruch der Dunkelheit entlud sich jedoch gegen die Menschenmengen, die im Bereich der Zubringer geschlossen vor Ort geblieben waren, roheste Gewalt. Zu später Stunde sammelten sich die Bahngegner dann zur Vollversammlung in Bussoleno.

Die Lungen voll Cs, die Kleider nass, die Haut durch Capsaicin-Beimischung im Wasserwerferwasser gereizt, mit wunden und schmerzenden Köpfen, Rümpfen und Gliedern – die No Tav konnten sogar schon wieder lachen, als sie in einer Eilversammlung die Ereignisse der vergangenen Stunden bewerteten und wie darauf zu reagieren sei.

The Insurrection—Oakland Style: A History
by Matthew Edwards
Monday Oct 31st, 2011 5:09 PM

This is an unfinished work—a snapshot of history as it occurred, experienced by me, reported on social media, or retold by trusted comrades. It will lack the finality of hindsight. Contained within is my account of the Oakland Insurrection as it has unfolded over the past days and weeks. Both the insurrection and this essay are works of hope. I hope that we push forward on the streets of Oakland, the Bay Area, and everywhere else, to the limit of what is possible—beyond occupation and the proposed general strike to “total freedom” for us all.

#OccupyOakland

Inspired by the uprisings across the world and fueled by the increasingly precarious economic conditions across the United States, a callout was made for an occupation of Wall Street. On September 17, 1000 people occupied the financial hub of the United States and arguably global capitalism. Within days, dozens of towns and cities had their own version of the #Occupy movement—with varying degrees of encampment, protest, and organizing space; within weeks, hundreds of cities were occupied; within a month, over a thousand worldwide.

Oakland’s Frank Ogawa Plaza, renamed Oscar Grant Plaza by many Bay Area residents, was occupied on October 10. Logistical planning started a week before the occupation date, with #OccupyOakland fielding a fully functional canteen, childcare, medic, sound, and general assembly area on day one, with person of color (POC), gender and queer safe spaces soon to follow. #OccupyOakland had the same populist rhetoric regarding the problematic “homogeneous” nature of “#Occupy…”, but pushed the “99%” critique into a decidedly anti-capitalist direction. Coupled with this was a distinctly anti-police and anti-state tone that also translated into anti-oppression organizational forms. (mehr …)
