Class Wargames Storms the Agora

  • Saturday 29th May 9.00pm.
  • School of Fine Arts, Peireos 256, 18233 Athens, Greece.
  • Metro: Kallithea.

Richard Barbrook will be introducing a screening and discussion of Class Wargames Presents Guy Debord’s The Game of War at the Babylonia Anti-Authoritarian Festival in Athens, Greece.

For the first time, the Situationist politics of Debord’s game are carefully explained in sound and vision. After watching this movie, opponents of spectacular capitalism will understand the importance of studying The Game of War. By playfully competing against each other over its board, they are learning the strategic and tactical skills required for success in the deadly struggle against the global bourgeoisie. In this film, Class Wargames has  divided Debord’s teachings from the battlefield into five sections: terrain, combat, cavalry, arsenals and lines of communication. Analyse their insights with great care, fellow workers. As the crisis of neo-liberalism intensifies, you will need this military knowledge to thwart the wicked schemes of bankers and bureaucrats. Remember well the lessons of socialist history: clever tactics and smart strategy are our most powerful weapons.

An untrained militant would only be an object of embarrassment to the vanguard.
