A pamphlet giving the day by day account of the 1981 Brixton Uprisings, race tension/solidarity, and theoretical reflections on the rise of the “Impossible Class”. Written at the height of capital restructuring in the UK and articulated with Italian Autonomist flair, Here it is, in two parts.

We are interested less in how the working class suffers unemployment than in how the class becomes recomposed in ways which undermine the discipline of the entire labour market which tries to label us as the “the miserable unemployed” in the first place.
