The future of protest

Republic publishes my interview in two parts, dedicated to the Russian protests in global perspective. Sensitivity of the class and the urban semantics of the rallies in Moscow and Paris, the social differences and tactical similarities besidesi protests, the future of the unborn children and human vulnerability as the motives of solidarity.

Part 1. "A concern for the future makes this a political protest"

Editor of the politics Department at George vanunts sets is remarkably true to the tone of the conversation. Answering his questions, I characterize the features of the current protest wave in comparison with 2011-12, the logic of the protest leaders and the ethical implications of the movement “without consequences,” a concern for the future as a key political resource and the relationship of the current Russian protest with the German romantic model of self-education of the nineteenth century.

Part 2. As in Paris. What is common among the Moscow protesters and "yellow jackets"

Continuing the analysis of the Russian rallies in the broader context, I turn to the obvious social and geographical variables. Why the Russian protest refuses to constitutive violence and the extent to which nailstone rallies in Paris or in Athens? As protest sensibility tied to the neoliberal reforms of education and healthcare around the world? What is the political and protest culture of Europe and the United States is moving closer to Russian? That really means the state monopoly on violence and why police brutality – it is a violation and not a guarantee? Why without progressive feminism and the left critics of the protest can turn into its opposite?

a Deeper understanding of the design of possible future rallies and protest by reading these texts are:
