MetadataShow full item record
This study explains the role of Anarchism in the Athens during the Financial and Social Crisis. Through the definition of Direct Action as anarchism amalgams of tactics and strategies, the research tries to underlines the alternatives of anarchism in the society. I will try drawing a picture of the above, through the description of Lela K. 37 squat, as a case study. It’s one of the oldest housing squats in Greece, and its role throughout the last 30 years of anarchists’ movement, is crucial. The city center of Athens is the physical and political center of Greece. As long as anarchism doesn’t belong to any kind of State or Nation, the squat is part of a global anarchists’ movement. The thesis underlines the challenges of anarchists’ movement face before and during the crisis, from the State but also from the rising of the Far-Right ideologies.
