Hi Jeremy

I just read your piece on the end of history which I really enjoyed. I love the theme you noted from Subcommandante Marcos, about the circular nature of political struggle. This is something I tried to get at in my novel about post-1994 South Africa, Freedom Never Rests, in which I attempt to interrogate (in the context of hopefully an interesting plot) not only the neoliberal model but the forms of organization that emerge in response to a “democratic dispensation.” Anyway, thanks for pulling all these threads together. In solidarity, James Kilgore

Hello, Jerôme,

I came across your site while looking for photos of the Madrid protests. I edit, the website of anti-austerity encampment in Lower Manhattan, across from City Hall and just north of Wall Street. We’ve been sleeping out and holding rallies and other actions since June 14 to protest drastic cuts to NYC services and budget. You can read more about it on the blog. Thought you’d like to know about it.

Hi Jerome,

I am writing to ask if I can please include your image of the globe hands on the links page of my website? I am a therapist in the North East of England working to improve the quality of life and self-esteem of adults, children and young people.

I have attributed the image to Pedro Noel as it is attached to his Dec 2 article and and included a link to I will immediately remove the image if this is not okay? I could not find contact information for Pedro.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With kind, warm wishes,

Dear Mr. Roos,

I am a journalist at an independent radio station Radio Student from Slovenia. I am preparing a broadcast about the deal between Greece and EU.

I am wondering if you would be prepared to share some of your views on the subject with our listeners in a short interview (10 minutes) via Skype or phone? The broadcast airs today at 5pm CET, so if you agree to the interview we could record it sometime until then.

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours sincerely,
Matej Zwitter
