This video was made at the demonstration organised by European Social Forum in Paris in November 2003, and is shown on one of the two monitors on the back side of the screening wall.
"In the beginning is the scream. We scream.When we write or when we read, it is easy to forget that the beginning is not the word, but the scream. Faced with the mutilation of human lives by capitalism, a scream of sadness, a scream of horror, a scream of anger, a scream of refusal: NO."
John Holloway, Change the world without taking power
The films shows different way of almost all existing traditional demonstration’s chanting slogans in Europe. Due to the cut of the film this activity in film is shown in condenssed, almost comic form mixing moment of pure exaltation and concentration.
In the construction of the installation this activity sympolise the role of multitude with its features based on affects, linguistic production and virtuosity in action.
