This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now Festival 2018.
Any talk of revolution is incomplete without recovery. Drug and alcohol use dominates perception of social interactions and political actions, from the inside and the outside. It also dominates the lives of many within activist circles. Comfortable as we are likening the systems we wish to dismantle to drugs and addiction (aka “the opium of the people”), how comfortable are we, addressing the destructive role of addiction, and the apparent dependency on intoxicants our spaces and demonstrations have? Addiction is a political as well as personal condition. While fighting to free our lives from the control that capitalism and the state have, how can we free our lives from the control of addiction culture?
We are a group of addicts in recovery.
