Summary
Squatters and autonomous movements have been at the forefront of radical politics in Europe for nearly a half-centuryfrom struggles against urban renewal and gentrification, to large-scale peace and environmental campaigns, to spearheading the antiausterity protests sweeping the continent. Through an examination of the local history of these movements in eight different citiesincluding Amsterdam, Berlin, and other famous centers of autonomous insurgence, along with underdocumented cities such as Poznan and AthensThe City Is Ours paints a broad and complex picture of Europes squatting and autonomous movements. Each chapter focuses on one city and provides a clear chronological narrative and analysis accompanied by photographs and illustrations. The sections center on the most important events and developments in the history of these movements, identifying the specificities of the local movements and dealing with issues such as the relation between politics and subculture, generational shifts, the role of confrontation and violence, and changes in political tactics. The contributors are all politically engaged authors who combine academic scrutiny with accessible writing, providing a clear and engaging view of important contemporary social movements
