The project tied to this blog is over. The blog stays up as a record of that, and because some people have been interested in the blogs contents. The blog is collecting spam so the comments are moderated and they may eventually be turned off. If you comment, keep a copy of it if you don’t want to lose it. Email if you want to get in touch.

This blog’s quite neglected recently, not least because I’ve lost some of my interest in the precarity conversations. This piece by Silvia Federici offers criticisms of some of those conversations which I think are worth taking very seriously.
I’d be keen to see the Precarias a la Deriva and folk with a similar outlook respond to Federici.

A Different Precarity: Gender and Generational Conflicts in Contemporary Italy
by Laura Fantone
September 15 2006
In this decade, especially in the last five years, European social movements have
developed increasingly on the issue of flexibilization of labor. These movements are clearly a response to neo-liberalization and the reduction of welfare and the so–called “social rights” acquired, after intense struggle, by citizens of the industrialized countries during the 20th century (Hobsbawn, Piven and Cloward).
Euromayday and Freedom of Movement - Statement of Frassanito-Network
Following statement was the outcome of a meeting of the frassanito-network
during the fadaiat-project in tarifa, south of spain, in june 2006
(http://www.fadaiat.net/). The text aims to inspire the debates around Euromayday,
to think beyond the event-level and to keep a strong connection between
Euromayday and migrationrelated networking.
Precarious, Precarization, Precariat?
The following text is the slightly revised version of a working paper. It was
written and distributed by people from frassanito-network for the euromayday-preparation-meeting in Berlin in January 2005. And this paper is still on the move. As known we emphasize the interconnection between the (migrationrelated) 2nd day of action (2nd of april) and Euromayday. Concerning to that please read this lines as an attempt to establish a common debate around political aims in european space. Contact: email@example.com"
