Insurgent Democracy in Spain, Greece, Portugal…

This was posted at Infinite Thought.  It is a series of short but really excellent talks given at Birkbeck about the political-economic situation in each country, as well as the extraordinary popular reaction and democratic experimentation in the squares all over Spain, Portugal, and Greece.

The talks touch on the importance of joy in political mobilization, on self-organization, on the importance of political presentation as opposed to representation, and on the meaning of national flags displayed by people during the uprisings.
