About the Book

Written after the wave of riots in France in 2005, the anonymous collective known only a the invisible committee suggest a revolutionary strategy based on the the premise that capital must be blockaded at every oppertunity if we are to create spaces outside of it. Our capacity to blockade should ben limited only by our ability to sustain ourselves, they suggest.
Slogans frm this book ("blockade everything", "All power to the communes") have been reproduced in graffitti all across Europe, and appear to have played a role in the "december insurrection" in Greece 2008.

First Sentence
