The anarchist and anti-authoritarian space
Tensions and tendencies
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

There are flickers of antagonism that often precede that combustive moment when a protest march turns into a violent street-protest. This chapter explores some of the more prominent tensions within the anarchist and anti-authoritarian space. It discusses tensions around gender and sexuality politics; tendencies and currents; tactics and media engagement, as well as violence and solidarity. The Athenian anarchist and anti-authoritarian space is rife with tensions and frictions that constitute the practical consequences of this freedom. Significant conflicts are apparent on issues of gender and sexual politics, and on suitable tactics and appropriate forms of direct action. There is no one Athenian anarchism or anti-authoritarian current that can be defined as the Athens's way. In the face of all these tensions, disagreements and catalysts for conflict, it is remarkable that the space is still such a prominent and prolific radical force.
