Re: [Nettime-nl] Fwd: Activists Weigh the Cost of Confrontation First Tear Gas, Now Bullets


Kijk, deze postings tonen volgens mij hoe verward en lastig de huidige
ontwikkelingen rond globalisering zijn. Ter beschrijving van beide partijen
worden hieronder dezelfde termen gebruikt. 

Eerste citaat uit gestuurde artikel van Karin Spaink: 

At 09:35 PM 7/21/2001 +0200:

>"The airport, train stations, and access roads will be shut
down and the center city blockaded with armored trucks. That
hasn't daunted the militant anarchists of Italy's Tute
Bianche (White Overalls) movement, whose members are
plotting a mixture of seaborne assaults and medieval-style
attacks using battering rams and catapults to launch dead
fish and paint bombs at police."

En uit het tweede artikel dat Karin Spaink stuurde:

At 10:38 PM 7/21/2001 +0200:

>What the Protesters in Genoa Want

>By MICHAEL HARDT and ANTONIO NEGRI

>Genoa, that Renaissance city known for both openness and shrewd political
sophistication, is in crisis this weekend. It should have thrown its gates
wide for the celebration of this summit of the world's most powerful
leaders. But instead Genoa has been transformed into a medieval fortress of
barricades with high-tech controls."

Middeleeuwse belegering contra middeleeuwse verschansing.
