New Online! BARBARIANS: the disordered insurgence by Crisso and Odoteo A critique of Hardt and Negri's EmpireThe Empire seems to have less and less need for the poor it produces, left to rot by the millions in the reserves of the mercantile paradise. On the other hand, the plebeians could become dangerous as a horde of barbarians � and descend from the hills to the city, but with the worst intentions.

NEW in 2004: NOTES ON SUMMITS AND COUNTER-SUMMITS by Some Roveretan anarchists. Capitalism is a social relationship and not a citadel for the powerful. It is starting from this banality that one can confront the question of summits and counter-summits. Representing capitalist and state domination as a kind of general headquarters (it�s a question of the G8, the WTO or some other such organization) is useful to those who would like to oppose that managing center with another center: the political structures of the so-called movement, or better, their spokespeople. In short, it is useful to those who propose merely a change in management personnel. Besides being reformist in essence and purpose, this logic becomes collaborationist and authoritarian in method, as it leads to centralization of the opposition. This is where the concern of these leftist adversaries, so anxious to make themselves heard by the �masters of the world�, in investing money and political hype on the summits in which those in power more and more frequently set the dates with them comes from.

Whoever insurges openly against one's own and others' oppression does not seek leaders, other directives, other cages to take the place of this society, nor do they seek affiliates.

The Insurrectional ProjectOnce one has decided not to put up with being ruled or exploited and therefore to attack the social order based on domination and exploitation, the question of how to go about this arises. Since those of us who rise up in rebellion cannot let themselves be organized by others without falling under a new form of domination, we need to develop the capacity to organize our own projects and activities�to put the elements together that are necessary for acting projectually in a coherent manner....
