… alle Verhältnisse umzuwerfen, in denen der Mensch ein erniedrigtes, ein geknechtetes, ein verlassenes, ein verächtliches Wesen ist … (Marx)

Wohin treibt England?

Einige Lesehinweise zu den aktuellen Protesten:

* Paul Mason: 9.12.2010: Dubstep rebellion – the British banlieue comes to Millbank (BBC)

„Any idea that you are dealing with Lacan-reading hipsters from Spitalfields on this demo is mistaken.

While a good half of the march was undergraduates from the most militant college occupations – UCL, SOAS, Leeds, Sussex – the really stunning phenomenon, politically, was the presence of youth: bainlieue-style youth from Croydon, Peckam, the council estates of Islington.

Having been very close to the front line of the fighting, on the protesters side, I would say that at its height – again – it broke the media stereotype of being organised by „political groups“: there was an anarchist black bloc contingent, there were the socialist left groups – but above all, again, I would say the main offensive actions taken to break through police lines were done by small groups of young men who dressed a lot more like the older brothers of the dubsteppers.“

* Barnsley girl’s account of violence at fees protest (BBC)

* Laurie Penny: Inside the Parliament Square kettle (New Statesman)

„A sterile area: that’s what the heart of our democracy has become, a searing wound of rage and retribution cauterised by armoured and merciless agents of the state.

Things fall apart. Something fundamental has changed in the relationship between state and citizen over the past month. Increased police violence will not stop our democracy disintegrating: before it’s too late, before more children are brutalised at the heart of what once pretended to be a representative democracy, this government needs to consider its position.“

* Lizzie Cocker: Student protests – „Someone is going to get killed“ (Morning Star)

* Police must not be seen as arm of the state, warns top officer (The Guardian)

„Police fear becoming the focus of public anger at government cuts and that repeated clashes with demonstrators risk damaging their reputation, a top officer has told the Guardian.

Sir Hugh Orde, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, said it was crucial that police do not appear to be „an arm of the state“ who are being used to allow the government to „impose cuts“.“
