WHAT ABOUT: The future by Arcadi Oliveres

‘The future has to be, as they say in Latin America, the good life’

—Arcadi Oliveres is a Catalan economist and UAB university professor and an active participant in social movements since his youth. Also is a recognized activist in Justice and Peace, an organization for the promotion and defense of human rights around the world. In this organitzation is the president since 2001. He is known for his divulgative work about political economy, corporate analysis and proposals for responsible and sustainable consumption. Also specializes in North-South relations in international economics, foreign debt and fair price. Great critic of contemporary liberal capitalist system, with its active participation in the 15M movement —in its representation in the camp of Plaça Catalunya in Barcelona 2011— his speech became more known. His activism began in his youth with the student movement against the dictatorship of Franco in the 60s, it was consolidated with the anti-globalization movements and their theoretical conceptualizations and defense theories of degrowth. He also participated in the creation of the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre and the Indignados movement (15M). Continues its activities as a teacher at UAB, and activist, thinker and promotor, we hope that his work will not cease, and leave us for many years, this light provided by this economist, where the economy is transformed into politics, politics into society, and society in humanity and justice.

Albañil y militante anarquista nacido en Navarra, huyó a Francia en 1954 después de desertar del servicio militar. Debido a su actividad clandestina en pro de grupos de extrema izquierda internacionales es considerado como una especie de Robin Hood, aunque en palabras de Albert Boadella 'Lucio es un Quijote que no luchó contra molinos de viento, sino contra gigantes de verdad'. Amigo de André Breton y Albert Camus, a lo largo de su vida ha participado en un gran número de actos contra el sistema capitalista que supusieron que se dictaran en su contra cinco órdenes internacionales de busca y captura, incluida una de la CIA. Destacan la proposición al Che Guevara para falsificar masivamente dólares americanos —finalmente rechazada—, la participación en la preparación del secuestro del nazi Klaus Barbie en Bolivia, la colaboración en la fuga del líder de los Panteras Negras, la intercesión en el secuestro de Javier Rupérez o su colaboración en la fuga de prisión de Albert Boadella, que se encontraba en espera de un juicio por un delito de injurias al ejército. Además simpatizó con los Grupos Autónomos de Combate-Movimiento Ibérico de Liberación y con los posteriores Grupos de Acción Revolucionaria Internacionalista —GARI—, manteniendo una especial relación con uno de los miembros más destacados de estos últimos, el francés Jean-Marc Rouillan. Siempre ha defendido el trabajo: 'Somos albañiles, pintores, electricistas, no necesitamos el Estado para nada'. Actualmente sigue participando en la difusión de las ideas anarquistas y continúa viviendo en París de su trabajo de albañil, en una casa con las puertas abiertas.'I know from experience that the more you give, the more you receive'. Mason and militant anarchist born in Navarra, he fled to France in 1954 after defecting from military service. Due to its clandestine activities towards international left-wing groups is considered as a kind of Robin Hood, but in the words of Albert Boadella 'Lucio is a Quijote that did not fight windmills, but against real giants'. Friend of André Breton and Albert Camus, throughout his life has been involved in numerous acts against the Capitalist system which supposed five international search orders, including one of the CIA. Highlights include the proposal to Che Guevara to fake massively American dollars —finally rejected—, the participation in the preparation of the kidnapping of nazi Klaus Barbie in Bolivia, the collaboration in the escape of the leader of the Black Panthers, the intercession on the kidnapping of Javier Rupérez or his help in Albert Boadella's jailbreak, who was awaiting trial for a crime of insulting the Army. He also sympathized with the Autonomous Combat Groups Iberian Liberation Movement and post-Revolutionary Internationalist Action Groups —GARI—, maintaining a special relationship with one of the most prominent members of the latter, the French Jean-Marc Rouillan. He has always defended work: 'We are masons, painters, electricians, we need the state for nothing'. Currently he is still involved in spreading anarchist ideas and continues living in Paris in a house with open doors."
