outside George Bush’s ranch in Texas, reigniting the anti-war movement in that country and bringing considerable embarrassment to the Administration. These silent solicitations of justice made by those who are weak, who have no power, constitute at the same time a force which knocks persistently on the doors of the bastions of the strong, and which quietly lays siege to sovereignty, confronting its hegemony in the name of something more unconditional, more universal.

psychedelic drugs, the anti-war movement, rock and roll, the alternative culture, and anything that was anti-authority. (Werbe, 1996: 1) At one point, having a weekly circulation of over 15,000, the FE was an integral part of the increasingly confrontational political scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Despite, or perhaps because of its high circulation, the paper struggled to maintain production. The sheer workload and the pressure on staff, many of whom did not take a holiday from political work for years, was beginning to take its toll. Worse, the indications were

because of the party’s growing associations with the anti-war movement and cultural liberalism. In their eyes, the party had become tied to ‘amnesty, abortion, and acid’.

conceptualism by showing the coherence of an on-going mode of practice that synthesised the infrastructural analysis of first generation Conceptual Art with a turn to overt representation of political subject matter. This development reflects the influence of Civil Rights, Black Power, the student movement, the anti-war movement, second wave feminism, and the gay liberation movement. Central in the American context, the multiple identity-based mobilisations that came to be known as “identity politics” were further articulated in the 1970s. These processes were reflected in

elsewhere. Hence his work within the anti-war movement and consequent pacifism: no war, no refugee crisis in the Pale. Hence his ultimate anarchist turn: it was only natural for him to join a movement emphasizing solidarity with the oppressed, Jews included — especially given that his Zionism was itself inflected with anarchism and he held anarchism to be consistent with this ‘pure’ form of Zionism. Thus, while Zalkind passed through many ideological phases throughout his career and in this respect appeared to ‘dance at many weddings (Zalkind 1920q ),’ it turns out that

one can easily question whether forming a coalition with the Islamists was the right decision. At the height of the anti-war movement, a partnership between Stop the War and the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) was founded. This was later joined by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). The decision to choose a religion-based organization instead of drawing support from smaller secular organizations had a serious adverse affect on the Bangladeshi community. Some community activists argue that it helped the schism within the community, and the Islamists

The main grandstand was encircled by a red tarpaulin ornamented with the hammer and sickle. The centre of the field featured a practicable (temporary stage) and reserved areas on either side for the youth groups.60 The visual logic of the stadium, and its decorations, thus helped place the emphasis on ‘seeing’ the Party in its entirety all throughout the stadium.
