John H's perspective figures prominently in this issue of _The Anomalist_. / In solidarity, Jerry ===================================== The Anomalist journal. Issue 2 - 'The politics of autonomy'. Available for download now from: http://theanomalist.com When the Zapatistas burst onto the world stage on New Years day 1994 they breathed some autonomous fresh air into a stagnant global political stage. Despite being initially dismissed as a throwback to earlier times they sparked a whole new wave of autonomous politics from Seattle to Argentina. And yet some 12 years on this inspiring movement, and the alternatives it encouraged, are being increasingly brought into question. On the one hand the coming to power of leftwing governments in South America brings the possibility of viable non-autonomous relationships between the state and social movements. From a different direction, the political leverage of the War on Terror threatens to cast all alternative political spaces as 'becoming dangerous' on a 'what if?' basis. It seems timely that the second issue of the Anomalist journal has the theme of 'the politics of autonomy'.
