How is it to be done? - Zine- (Tiqqun)

Tiqqun - How is it to be done - English (imposed version)-1.jpg

a translation originally appearing on the Tarnac 9 blog, but which has since been removed. this is the imposed pdf intended for printing.

note: this is a draft translation. if you can read French, you should really rely on the original, as, although decent overall, this translation loses some subtleties in the language (e.g. the use of "écart", or the impersonal pronoun "on" which is hard to translate, and so on).

the text addresses issues such as their notion of 'human strike', of 'whatever singularity', of the difference between individuality and the common, and so on.
enjoy.

Evacuate The Leftist Bunker

"Most would agree that there are increasing levels of social control that have come to settle around the therapeutic. Th is mania for physical and mental health is as much locked into increasing the productive performance in light of
intensifi ed workloads, as it is an issue of the provision of disciplining services for those occupying the fringes of work. Could it not be that the ‘rise of the therapeutic’ is part of a wider socio-historic process that is under-pinned  read more »

A Crime Called Freedom: Os Cangaceiros

a_crime_called_freedom-1.jpg

Os Cangaceiros was a group of delinquents caught up in the spirit of the French insurrection of 1968 who refused to let that spirit die. With nothing but contempt for the self-sacrificial ideology practiced by “specialists in armed struggle”, this uncontrollable band of social rebels wreaked havoc on the French state — attacking infrastructures of oppression, supporting popular revolts, stealing and releasing secret blueprints for high-tech prisons, raiding the offices of corporate collaborators, and creating their lives in complete opposition to the world based on work.  read more »

S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) Manifesto, by Valerie Solanas

"IF SCUM EVER MARCHES, IT WILL BE OVER THE PRESIDENT’S STUPID, SICKENING FACE; IF SCUM EVER STRIKES, IT WILL BE IN THE DARK WITH A SIX-INCH BLADE."

In 1968, Andy Warhol was shot and wounded by Valerie Solonas, who had once been a member of his crowd, and had even appeared in his films. Neither jealous lover, nor disgruntled employee, Solonas was a front-line warrior for SCUM, the Society for Cutting Up Men.  read more »
