The Struggle for the Commons

Silvia Federici
Kontext TV, 2014
Level: beginner
Perspectives: Feminist Economics, Marxian Political Economy
Topic: Social movements & Transformation
Format: Interview
Duration: 00:14:12

Silvia Federici illustrates the potential of the concept of the commons as way of resistance and reorganization of the society in times of social injustice and ecological crisis. Amongst others, she outlines the role of women in the commons movement. Federici explains why she regards the theory of the tragedy of the commons as unfounded and why she considers Marx's concept of primitive accumulation as still appropriate to describe current events of deprivation, such as land grabbing.
