Od krize do zajedničkih dobara
Zaključujemo temat "Od okupacije prostora do zajedničkog dobra" snimkom panela „From Crisis to the Commons“ održanog u sklopu 5. Subversive festivala, na kojem su gostovali Saki Bailey, Vinod Raina i Giovanni Allegretti. Raina je govorio o borbi pokreta Chipko za ruralni commons u Indiji, dok je Allegretti na više primjera predstavio praksu commoninga (stvaranja zajedničkih dobara) u Italiji, no u ovom kontekstu apostrofiramo izlaganje Saki Bailey, koja se osvrnula na iskustvo sudjelovanja u okupaciji Teatro Valle, naglasivši taktičku i stratešku važnost pravne subjektivacije pokreta.
From Crisis to the Commons – Saki Bailey, Giovanni Allegretti, Vinod Raina
16.5.2012, 10:00h, Zagrebačko kazalište mladihFrom Crisis to the CommonsIzlagači: Saki Bailey (Occupying the Commons, Italy), Giovanni Allegretti (Center for Social Studies, Portugal), Vinod Raina (Right to Education, India)Moderator: Vedran HorvatThe process of commodification of the Commons that already takes place in Europe for some time is now reaching its very peak on its periphery. Natural resources (namely water, forests, lands, space), but also public sphere (education, public media, public infrastructure), are exposed to strong demands for privatization as well as frequent pressures to demonstrate their commercial value and transform from collective property into commodities. Quite often, there is intentional inclination to present new private owners as better managers, while at the same time debt economies across Europe demonstrate their vulnerability. Multiple crisis which hit the citizens of Europe now appears to be an excuse for enclosure of the remaining public functions in resource governance. Both state and local authorities, since they more and more serve to the origins of these pressures, are less and less efficient in the defense of the public and fail to defend the Commons from further degradation or privatization. In spite of heavy implications of the financial crisis, a necessary paradigmatic revolution has been postponed, and through further privatisation and enclosure of remaining resources, Europe is facing even deeper crisis. Panelists will try to explore, examine and exchange views on the scope of the defense of the Commons and its role in the transformation of economic and social relationships in future Europe.
