Life in the Liberated Zone
Life in the Liberated Zone explores the spaces activists carve out–liberate!–within the belly of the Beast, to experiment with creating and living the new world now.
Liberated zones can be at many different scales, from a single encampment established to defend a strike or to house folks with no residence, to an entire nation embarked on a socialist project. And many levels in between, including an popular movements that gain control of some territory and begin enacting the changes they are struggling for–equality, participatory democracy, literacy–in the whole society.
Liberated zones likewise exist in an organization or community that is explicitly working to live in real time the change it wants to see, facing the tensions of taking this on in the belly of the Beast.
