Peer-to-Peer and Marxism: analogies and differences (Tent City University)

Michel Bauwens at the TCU, December 10th 2011

‘Anyone can teach, everyone can learn’ Tent City University has been one of the most remarkable experiments of the Occupy London protest, but, as Paul Stanistreet discovered, it is just one of a number of radical alternatives which are emerging to challenge current educational convention – The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) aims to encourage all adults to engage in learning of all kinds.

Lecture by Massimo De Angelis (UEL), at Tent City University

Massimo gives a lecture to the occupiers of the london stock exchange about the current capitalist system and how crises are inherently likely within that system. This video was shot at occupy london and is one of many lectures given by guest speakers as part of the tent city university which is organised entirely by volunteers from the movement. We at occupy london encourage everyone to get involved in the movement and will be running multiple lectures each day with a wide variety of voices, opinions and expertises expressing their views on the current crises and how we can work to resolve it.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

    It is always difficult to find qualified persons on this topic, you sound like you are aware of exactly what you are posting about! With thanks

  10. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the banks intentions whenever talking about foreclosures. One myth in particular is the fact that the bank desires your house. Your banker wants your dollars, not your own home. They want the bucks they gave you having interest. Avoiding the bank will undoubtedly draw a new foreclosed final result. Thanks for your post.

    Like Speakers Corner a cornerstone of our democracy?

  15. I don’t much want a manifesto which applies to us all. I’d much rather have what Occupy really invites, which is the meeting of a million manifestos more personally written. I want to see that kind of movement in all men’s hearts; the one that makes of each human conscience a government. I think we are ready for something much more like an awakening than rallying, and I think that’s what we’re seeing too.
    In my manifesto, the first point is clear:
    I, the government of me, resolve to remove all my monies from the banking system. I resolve to sell my house and pay off the mortgage, and free up whatever time or money remains to engage in living out my moral duty to love the poor. I resolve to place any remaining and future earnings in credit unions and cooperative banks outside the bigger system of transnational capital that I, the government of me, call to account. Indeed, I have no government of me until I do so. My rejection of the transnational banking system rejects all economic systems based on the upward mobility of usury’s gain, and its trickle down of loss. I reject my own debt because I reject the debts placed on all other persons, peoples, countries. I reject the debts placed on Africa and Latin America, and the debts placed on the sovereign nations of the EU, and the federal states of the U.S. I reject the indebtedness of all governments to central banks, and I claim their liberty as well my own. May all our good governance spring from the rejection of what we consider the central ill. May banks who deal in lies be de-monetized, and may each soul who so chooses count out his pennies of real freedom…….
