Short text about the current dynamics of what we have called "the era of riots". It was written before the events in Brazil. These events include the 4th of the dynamics in the "era of riots" and ask the question of the stage of the crisis we are in (Brazil and Turkey were the IMF miracles). But of course the analysis of this correlation is not elaborated in this text.
‘A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of the hooded rioter. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: The British prime minister David Cameron and the General Secretary Aleka Papariga 1, the Italian foreign secretary Roberto Maroni, Adonis 2 and Takis Fotopoulos, Italian COBAS and German police officers.’
In December 2010-January 2011 the Arab-African revolt burst, and it turns out that it is going to be the historical catalyst for entering the ‘era of riots’, the transitional stage of this crisis. The reproduction crisis of the proletariat, and thus of capitalism, is defined as an important structural element of this period.
