A sunny success for the People’s Assembly


Anindya Bhattacharyya writes:

Saturday’s march through central London was a test for the People’s Assembly Against Austerity’s – the first time it had organised a national march primarily through its own resources, rather than putting a call out for a march that brought bigger forces (the TUC, the big unions) behind it.

Tiqqun’s gendering of Young Girl as feminine, then, is really just a way to use a ton of implicit misogyny to critique dominant discourses of human capital – that is, it’s a way for them to transfer the negative associations we have about women and femininity to this concept of human capital.
