1) Move into the Light? Postscrtipt to a turbulent 2007 translations

English, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish translations of Move into the Light? (MitL?) are now available online and elsewhere. A partial version of the text is also available in Greek. Many thanks to all those who helped out with translations!

For anyone interested, we also wrote a new (English-language) introduction to MitL? for the version of the text published by ephemera: theory and politics in organization (Issue 7.4). The short text locates both the article and the Turbulence project within the problematic of political organisation.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped out with distributing MitL? In particular: Red Pepper, ephemera, Grundrisse, ak – analyse & kritik, and Team Colors.

2) Block G8 booklet


Of particular interest to those who read German… the Block G8 campaign has just published an 84 page, full colour A4 booklet containing reflections on the mass blockades of last year’s G8 Summit at Heiligendamm. Entitled, ‘Chef, es sind zu viele…’ (or, ‘Boss, there’s too many of them…’), it contains texts on the G8, political reflections on the Block G8 coalition, an evaluation of the various methodologies it deployed (from press work, over decision making structures in huge groups, to the logistics of such an action), as well as a documentation of the various texts the campaign produced. Copies cost €3.00 (bulk discounts available).


The contents page is available here

Copies can be ordered, via AvantiRed Stuff or X-Tausandmal quer.

For those of you who don’t read German, you can check out the English versions of Turbulence’s contribution (essentially an extract from Move into the Light?here and one of the Turbulence editors’ texts here.

And for good measure, for those of you who read German but can’t wait to get your hands on the hard copy, here are the links to the same texts, but in German.

Wo sind die Grenzen? Kapital, Krise, Klimawandel

Alles auf Anfang? Block G8 und die Proteste von Heiligendamm als Neubeginn im Zyklus der globalisierungskritischen Kämpfe

3) PM Press collaboration

Unfortunately, we’re all out of copies of both Turbulence 01 and Move into the Light? Fortunately, the US-based PM Press are in the process of reprinting MitL? (more details to follow) both in pamphlet form as well as in a book containing all the texts from Turbulence 01, an extensive interview with two of the Turbulence editors, and a forward by John Holloway.

We’ll let you know as soon as copies are available.

4) Forthcoming Turbulence publication

In late-July, early-August 2008, Turbulence 04 will be published, ready for global distribution at events and bookshops over the summer and autumn. If you can help out with distribution, please get in touch at editors[at]turbulence.org.uk

We’re also looking for donations to help cover printing and distribution costs, and to keep Turbulence free! If you can help out, get in touch at the same address, or make a donation via the PayPal button on our website: www.turbulence.org.uk

The summer issue will contain articles, amongst others, by The Free Association, Tadzio Mueller, Felix Guattari, John Holloway, Sandro Mezzadra, and George Caffentzis. 

Oh yeah, and there should be a cartoon too!

5) Team Colors/Journal of Aesthetics and Protest publication: In the Middle of a Whirlwind

Team Colors have collaborated with the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest to produce In the Middle of a Whirlwind, designed to open space for political and strategic discussion ahead of the forthcoming protests against this summer’s Republican and Democratic national conventions. We think it’s well worth checking out!

6) Turb_2.0: Turbulence goes MySpace

We’ve now got a MySpace! Although it’s still very much under construction. Check it out, or better, ‘Add Us’ as a friend! We’re at: www.myspace.com/turbulence_ideas4movement
