Austerity and the PIIGS - anarchists from around Europe - DABF 2013


The austerity policies of the latest phase of capitalism have wreaked havoc on the lives and living standards of working class people across Europe and beyond.  The struggles in which communities find themselves as they attempt to resist these policies have a lot to learn from each other.  As we strive for a better world and to build communities free from poverty, exploitation and hopelessness we need to find time and space to listen to each other, to find common cause and to support each other’s struggles.


In this recording from the 2013 Dublin anarchist bookfair a number of speakers from the EU-‘peripherals’, the so-called PIIGS countries (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain) share the stories of the struggles they are involved in and explore a vision of what is needed to ‘change the world’.
