programme

 

just watched a programme on the revolutionary music scene in detroit in the sixties. the inevitable appropriation of  ‘dancing in the streets’ for it’s more fundamental purpose, the affirmation of people in the streets (our streets) dancing becoming the body politic – deliberately endangereing & brutalising life n limb – in desperation; as the streets face starvation, racism, torture, oppression, terror… from police, from ‘authorities’.

then the tactics of oppression changed from outright violence to economic terrorism, and communities are vandalised with drugs and work is moved away and cash is withdrawn so resistance becomes apparently impossible.
