Teaching Insurrection – Franco Berardi Bifo | Through Europe from Through Europe on Vimeo.


The obsession for profit and accumulation led our country and all European countries to the verge of a terrifying catastrophe into which we are now sinking, and we should realize we are already quite far into it. It is the catastrophe of barbarism and ignorance.

In Italy, the reform of the Berlusconi government and of his crawlers has already taken 8 billion euros away from the school, university and the education system, and soon it will take away even more. In the face of this devastation and barbarization, we cannot continue complaining. We must say: “First of all, you all have to go, then we will take care of the rest.” They have to go, just like the citizens of Tunis and Cairo said. I don’t know how it will end up, but I know that they revolted and they won. What did they do? They said: “We won’t leave this place … We won’t leave this square, we won’t leave this station, we won’t leave this parliament … We won’t leave until the tyrant and his crawlers go.” This is what we have to say, what we have to do. By the end of 2011, this is what has to happen in Italy. We will occupy the central train stations in Milan, in Bologna, and we will hold them until the tyrant and his lackeys flee.

But the tyrant and his crawlers are not the real problem. The real problem is an obsession embodied in financial power, in the power of banks and in the idea that the life of society, the pleasure, well-being and culture of society is worthless. They say the only things that matter are accounting books and the profits of a minuscule class of exploiters and murderers. From our point of view, at the moment, these two problems, that of the tyrant and of his crawlers and that of the European financial dictatorship are one single problem.
