Spontaneous movements and beyond…

yes, we do conference calls that last until 11pm. occupy wall street, peak oil, monsanto– environmental causes of cancer– you know the usual stuff we have to wrap our heads around and detangle ourselves from.

we are in the midst of history.. making history… and shaping history.

maybe a movement is a lot like falling in love– that moment where you’ve either built a foundation to fall into OR that moment THAT JUST HAPPENS. when you are swept away by the synergy of it all. to sustain a movement is the question and to actually create and vision what happens after the protests is the harder and bigger question. falling in love is falling in love but a relationship is much more than that.

we have double time in the groundwork — our task is to continue toppling imperialism BUT we need to start planning/creating what our relations will look like– that is: our relationship to land, our relationship to money, our relationship to property, our relationship to industry, our relationship to the commons. AND SOME OF THOSE RELATIONSHIPS WE NEED TO START BREAKING UP WITH. that is the first step.
