GLOBAL UPRISINGS Conference

The Stories, Ideas and Future of Uprisings around the World

  • From the Arab Spring to the movement of the squares in Southern Europe, and from there to the global Occupy movement and the current uprisings in Turkey and Brazil, people everywhere have been rising up against the power of governments, corporations and repressive regimes, representing a global legitimation crisis that affects authoritarian regimes and liberal democracies alike. November 15-17th, 2013 in Amsterdam Global Uprisings brought together together hundreds of people from all over the world many who have been directly involved in these struggles. Journalists, filmmakers and scholars who have participated in and reported from the front-lines of the popular uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia, Chile, the UK, the US, Canada, Turkey and Brazil. They discussed the lessons to be drawn from recent experiments with general assemblies and direct democracy; the use of independent and social media; the role of women in the revolutions; how to organize a general strike from below; and how to continue the fight for housing rights, free education and autonomy in the wake of some of the biggest mobilizations to date. Watch key presentations of the conference.
