In our day, as the traces of our radical movements are being thrown into rubbish pits, as state sponsored “austerity” demands the commodification of every inch of space, and with sinister intent destroys the evidence of our past, its joys, its victories.

Thus neo-liberalism organizes the transition from the old to the new; they must silence alternatives.
