    culture-revolution as the festival of the oppressed

    Post  lost on Fri Mar 25, 2011 2:31 pm

    1.for me culture is about reflecting on everything we do,and in the process telling our story to ourselves and others and giving everything meaning and value.amongst other things.

    2.in this context revolution is the festival of the oppressed.revolution is not simply an event but a train of events,a process.

    3.and in revolution as it is happenning now,as it spreads like apparent wildfire,gives expression to moments of very real gestival.i hope that soon we can mnake that festival international,worldwide,permanent and very celebratory.

    4.it already has its iown rythmn and music though the musicians may well not be professional or orchestrated.yet.it will find its own manner of expression.

    5.what is very present is the genuinekly international rythmns in the chants and demands.they are not filtered through american cultural values,although the best of america will be there like any other.

    6.what strikes me is the body langauge and chant rythmns of workers demands in action and movement.it rises above language in that whilst i would benefit from understandiung what is being demanded without translation it is not neccessary to get the point.

    7.just before i started writing this,i stumbled across a website,falling or flopping aces that currently includes some short videos of demonstrations in the united states against cuts,in defence of workers and uniions.black and white,men and women together.i admit i cried tears of exhilaration because behind the pain are flashes of our,yes our collective joy and potential and power.yes on thsi occassion i could reciognise the chants,including"what does democracy look like?this is what democracy looks like!"makes the point for me that we are singing from the same song book and dancing to the same rythmn internationally.it is time to throw off our chains and make the festival of the oppressed.
