Sooo………… these are some privileges to be aware of, if you’re interested in power dynamics, access, racism, feminism, etc, and if you’re wanting to equalise those dynamics at anytime, ever. In particular, if you’re playing or involved in the hardcore punk scene and wax lyrical about being political/anti-sexist/decolonialist/anti-fascist/whatever. Back the rhetoric up with action. Y’all can start by reading this: http://occupydaysofaction.com/act/resources_files/saidthepottothekettle-web.pdf

Not saying punk is *anywhere* near this extreme condition, but in a letter from “Comrades in Cairo” published in The Guardian October 24th, 2011 re: Tahrir: “These are public spaces. Spaces for gathering, leisure, meeting and interacting – these spaces should be the reason we live in cities. Where the state and the interests of owners have made them inaccessible, exclusive or dangerous, it is up to us to make sure that they are safe, inclusive and just. We have and must continue to open them to anyone that wants to build a better world, particularly for the marginalised, the excluded and those groups who have suffered the worst.”
