There are now hundreds of cities in 25 countries around the world prepping for the next global wave of democratic, people powered resistance to the emergent fascist global order and there's been barely a dicky bird from the 1% media. That's to be expected, but there's not been much on social media or alt channels in the UK either. What is up with that? Have you heard about #NuitDebout, or the #GlobalDebout next week, 15th May? #15M? If not, why not? (Please answer in the comments if you can be arsed).
For me, one of the most exciting things about Nuit Debout is the debate it has restimulated around the problem of 'identity politics'. Much like Occupy, the Indignados and the 15M before it, this latest global wave of change is an opportunity for people from all walks of life to shed their old, divisive and tribalistic political identities. To unite in common cause and create new paradigms together.
