Sample text

There is an explicit foregrounding of ‘civilisation’ in the work of Deleuze and Guatarri, derived in part from engagement with psychoanalytic theory where the term assumes analytical significance, rather than society. Here, Deleuze and Guattari’s prioritisation of difference diverges from the Freudian emphasis on the achievement of a sound gendered identity through the resolution of the underlying tensions of polymorphous sexuality. Desire for Deleuze and Guattari is thus not centred on a pervasive sense of ‘lack’ as in the work of Lacan but as an active affirmation of life, embracing and producing difference.

In Foucauldian terms a ‘micro-physics of power’ is played out on the street as a strategic encounter between protestors and the ‘security state’ in ritualised forms where there are no ‘untouched’ passive observers. By creating a ‘time between times’ the AGM renders them in a particularly condensed form through the work of highly skilled and committed individuals – whom we term ‘free radicals’. This is a critical form of immaterial cultural labour which teaches transferable techniques of self, acting as a conduit transposing workplace bio-politics into and onto the public sphere.

This is consistent with work on small world networks and we approach the AGM as a diverse interest group whose use of the web represents an exemplar of the kinds of intended and targeted impacts achievable by distributed network actors. As we show in Chapters 3 and 4, the role of social networks constituted and consolidated via mobility, by internationals or free radical within the AGM, do play a significant role here. These roles do not however simply replicate the dominance of frame-work by movement intellectuals but, through adherence to underlying principles originating in the geographical ‘South’, focus on maintaining an open process – a defining feature of multitude (see Hardt and Negri 2004: 99–105).
