Book presentation “Rebellisches Berlin. Expeditionen in die untergründige Stadt”
The book tells the story of the rebellious Berlin from the “Berliner Unwillen” riots in 1440 until today’s struggle against gentrification and for decent housing and rents. “Rebellisches Berlin” does not only speak about the past and make it visible through still existing places, but wants also to encourage and inspire future struggles and rebellions.
The Viome factory in Greece: living utopia
When the company went bankrupt in 2011, the workers of Philkeram Johnson occupied the factory and started to produce biodegradable cleaning products. Until today, Viome manages through a horizontal non-hierarchical scheme of organisation to produce high quality products proving that a thriving self-organized factory is not a utopia.
Two Viome workers talk about the start of the project, the struggles they faced and the experience they acquired in self-organisation.

The last part concentrates on possible steps how we can liberate ourselves already today a little bit more from money and property. We’ll discuss collective actions too.
