Racing towards a Global Spring

Hey, have you heard?

Athens. Barcelona. Tunis. Cairo. Tripoli. Sana’a. Santiago. Bahrain. Wisconsin. Yo Soy 132. Indignados. Red Square. #OccupyWallStreet. Pussy Riot. Blockupy. Damascus. #IdleNoMore… Istanbul.

What can we learn from the beating heart of Gezi Park, the blood soaked Taksim concrete, the barricades of Besiktas? One thing: the dream of a Global Spring is not dead. It is still in its infancy, kicking and screaming.

Look around! This is what democracy looks like. The future is being built as we speak. What will it be? Singularity, or Nightfall? A sane sustainable future or a 1000 year Dark Age?

Dare to dance without knowing the next step. And then take that step with others. Beijing, you’re next. London, Moscow, Delhi and Ottawa. Then… we retake New York.

As the second anniversary of Occupy approaches, the indignation, the precarity — the gnawing feeling that life under corpo-capitalism is a dead-end, and that the future it leads to does not compute — is culminating in some kind of global big bang. The world as we know it must burst. The call is out for a new way of being… and it is being heard. A chain reaction of refusal against corpo-capitalism is underway. The global insurrectionary pulse is going steady, and now we’re racing forward…

There are no more bystanders at this point in the game. Let’s all get off our asses and pitch in to build this new world.

Here at Culture Jammer HQ, we’re just about to toss another mindbomb into the mix. After many months of hard work from our Spanish translator team, we are thrilled to announce the official launch of Adbusters en español into cyberspace!

Using our independent Spanish App for iOS, you can immediately access a high-res, English-less version of Adbusters, and peruse through volumes like the Big Ideas of 2013 and the Mental Breakdown of a Nation issue and the first installment of our Epic Human Journey series.

When the revolutionary spark settles in your fingertips, submit all your reflections, mind-bombs and ideas de rebelión en español to barbara@adbusters.org — make the radical Spanish and Latin American voices a rising tide that can’t be quelled!

Meanwhile, we’re composing Part 3 of the Epic Human Journey and ordering new Corporate America flags in preparation of July 4 in the USA, where everyone deserves to be reminded of the corporations that stand behind the blinding, glittering stars. We’re also mining the cybersphere for the next generation of #Killcap players, campus-borne meme warriors, and the latest edgy jams — like this one in the UK.

We won’t stop doing what we do until our current global system heaves… Are you with us?

Time to play jazz.

For the wild,
Culture Jammers HQ
