From The Invisible Committee:
In 2007 we released The Coming rebellion in France. It has to be said variety of assertions through the Invisible Committee have seeing that been proven, beginning with the 1st and so much crucial: the sensational go back of the insurrectionary phenomenon. Who may have wager a kopeck, seven years in the past, at the overthrow of Ben Ali or Mubarak via road motion, at the rebel of kids in Quebec, at the political awakening of Brazil, at the fires set French-style within the English or Swedish banlieues , at the production of an insurrectionary commune within the very middle of Istanbul, on a stream of plaza occupations within the usa, or at the uprising that unfold all through Greece in December of 2008?
During the seven years that separate the arrival insurrection from To Our pals , the brokers of the Invisible Committee have endured to struggle, to arrange, to move themselves to the 4 corners of the realm, to anyplace the fires have been lit, and to discuss with comrades of each tendency and each state. hence To Our associates is written on the experiential point, in reference to that common circulate. Its phrases factor from the turmoil and are addressed to those that nonetheless think sufficiently in lifestyles to struggle as a consequence.
To Our acquaintances is a document at the country of the realm and of the circulate, an article that is basically strategic and brazenly partisan. Its political ambition is conceited: to provide a shared figuring out of the epoch, despite the intense confusion of the present.
