The Graduates with no future?

January 31, 2012

These are extracts from an article in The Guardian [03 January] “Why is it all kicking off?” – see link below

“At the centre of all the protest movements is a new socialogical type: the graduate with no future – a movement without a name – a trend, a direction, an idea-virus, a meme, a source of energy that can be traced through a large number of spaces and projects”

“The next morning I wrote a blog post based on the conversation: Twenty Reasons Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere. It went viral. Within a month I met an American hacker, who told me that “there are discussion groups in the US studying your blog”. Later, I found out that a global collective of protesters were working on a book critiquing it; later still I met some of them, as they tried to avoid having their heads bashed in by Greek riot police.

One thing was clear: the events taking place across the world carried too much that was new in them to ignore.”

it’s worth a read – let me know what you think
