The need that becomes proposal is a continued and united process, a daily and shared mechanism. The proposal sees Barcelona and Milan as metropolis to contaminate and the use of a "multiple front attack" to raise european precarious workers voice and to make it visible. Milan and Barcelona are different context : while in Albertini's Milan we see the negation of political and social debate space, the "zero tolerance" Rudolph Giuliani style attitude, in "progressive three-party system" Barcelona we find the integration of conflict in the institutions: we merge a repressive policy as the one we find in milan to a reconstruction of political institutional power as in Barcelona. In may Barcelona will see the beginning of the "Cultures Forum / FORUM 2004", an 4-month event wracking havoc on barcelona through a huge urbanistic and social impact that the event will bring about and is already bringing about : speculation, exploitation of precarious workers, selling out of cultures and cultural activities. THe event has already been renamed "Fuck 2004" by catalan people and movements, that are already joining forces to fight against it , having already endured a similar process during 1992 olympic games in the city
The process we propose has the ambition to create a precarious work network with the stregth of developing a new identity and symbology that will become visible on may 1st 2004, representing an important aim towards the estabilishment of social networks and the development of new forms of conflict, effectively increasing the chances to defend people and social rights, a task that traditional organization have failed to achieve. The time, space and method we chose and that still are far from the first of may want to be possible means to recombine networks and act in a distributed fashion
The tools we propose to use are:
- 1 local initiatives : in barcelona several situations have been working on a cartography of precarious condition; they are organizing a place that will be able to develop analysis and activities on the different topic of the precarious condition (territory, income, labour) and "precarious offices" growing up in different neighbourhoods; there have been a lot of debato about how to organize the next first of may as something different and breaking with the last years traditions, creating an autonomous space. In milan we are organizing the festival for Saint Precarious Day on February 29th.
