18 in stock
A nicely produced pamphlet exploring the various initiatives through which the anarchist movement in Ljubljana is involved in the counter-economy, described as a specific form of knowledge and practice that involves economic activity and that is related to building the processes of counter-power. The focus is on three collectives: the urban agrarian platform Zadruga Urbana, the Community Investment Fund of anarchists (SISA), and the autonomous space Jalla Jalla. The projects have tanglible effects on the everyday lives of the people involved, and serve as the principle nodes of the counter-economy by functioning as non-market and non-state mechanisms providing certain basic means of living.
