"border violence, exclusion

"border violence, exclusion of undocumented people from society, agricultural workers dying from sunburns in sicily, feminists who are being murdered in afghanistan, so many homeless people on the street in the wintertime, climate change, violent raid of wet'suwet'en territority, constructions in lutkemeerpolder,"

Can you hear yourself? These are all things that, while important to a politically conscious person AND the people directly impacted, are not important to most people in the netherlands because they are not directly impacted. So, obviously, at least in the absence of large radical political consciousness and organization, those most people will not rise up about these things. They will rise uo about things that do impact them, like a general ban on fireworks.

For any social revolution in any placr you need the participation of massive amounts of people in that specific place. That will and only ever has happened when it is regarding something that directly impacts massive amounts of people. The zapatistas didn't rise up because people were screwed on the other side of the world or because one indigenous project was attacked. They rose up because massive amounts of people were being screwed right where they are. And even though some of those people were hideously conservative, patriarchal, nationalist. Same goes for the kurdish in Syria. For 1917 (which was about oeace and bread, not minority rights), 1936 (which was against a fascist military coup, not out of empathy for the homeless), and whatever else you can think of. I think the paris commune was even outright nationalist in some respects.

People have a far too romantic view of past uprisings, and a far too negative view of the current ones.
