In 2007 we released The Coming rebel in France. It has to be stated variety of assertions by means of the Invisible Committee have for the reason that been proven, beginning with the 1st and so much crucial: the sensational go back of the insurrectionary phenomenon. Who could have guess a kopeck, seven years in the past, at the overthrow of Ben Ali or Mubarak via road motion, at the riot of adolescents 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 circulate 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 arriving revolt from To Our acquaintances , the brokers of the Invisible Committee have persevered to struggle, to prepare, to move themselves to the 4 corners of the area, to anywhere the fires have been lit, and to discuss with comrades of each tendency and each state. therefore To Our acquaintances is written on the experiential point, in reference to that normal flow. Its phrases factor from the turmoil and are addressed to people who nonetheless think sufficiently in lifestyles to struggle as a consequence.
To Our pals is a document at the kingdom of the area and of the circulate, an editorial that is primarily strategic and brazenly partisan. Its political ambition is conceited: to supply a shared figuring out of the epoch, even with the intense confusion of the present.
