Prague (CZ): We all are unadapted!

Media, politicians, neo-Nazis and even “decent people” have united in order to bring to light today’s biggest threat: the unadapted. The abusive characterization has began to live its own life. It is used for denouncing anyone who is not a favorite: Roma, squatters, ravers, the poor…

The unadaptability label seems to point out something about the labeling society itself. It reveals what its principal value really is: to adapt. It want us to be obedient career makers indifferent to our environment, always ready to conform.

“Unadaptability”, in fact, threatens the most important thing we have – freedom. Adaptable freedom is a contradiction in terms, we identify freedom precisely when it does not adapt.

Fascist attack against a squat in Greece.

On 1st of August 2009 at 02:00 AM two thugs in helmets stopped with their motorcycle by the Prapopoulou squat and using iron bars they tried (unsuccessfully) to break doors and windows.

By pure chance at that moment a homeless immigrant, friend of the squat, was inside. When the thugs took notice of him, they launched a savage attack with their iron bars, hitting his head and body while engaging in racist hate speech. They then left, leaving behind them a container filled with petrol.
