We would like to work with the team that is going to be set up at the UCMM on the different forms of exclusion that have increased as a result of the policies of cut backs in place since the financial crisis of 2008, and that have been intensifying throughout the cycle of financial capitalism initiated in 1971. Particularly those aimed at the field of healthcare, as well as policies on migrant communities. In this sense, we have been working on how the EU manages its borders, and with certain social movements such as the Mareas (Tides). We are interested in working with other collectives and communities to generate new situations, now that we are facing a new somatology produced by the malaises of neo-liberalism. The policies of the austercide that determine who is “dispensable” and who may enjoy a good quality of life.
Michel Feher points to the idea of dispensability, referring to those who are not allowed to have a social existence. What actions can we imagine and implement to expose the visible and invisible mechanisms that neo-liberalism has been implementing for decades to dispossess different communities of their chance of having a good life.
