Text from Boitempo Editorial:
David Harvey talks about how to conceive of and organize the working class in contemporary circumstances. Different from its classical, factory-based, guise, the working class today is fragmented and scattered throughout the urban setting. In this context, Harvey emphasizes the importance of thinking up new territorial strategies for class struggle – a terrain more explored by the anarchist tradition than the classical Marxist one. He then, paraphrasing Murray Bookchin, insists that the future of the left depends crucially on our capacity for putting together the best of Marxism with the best of anarchism. A must see video.

The Crisis of Planetary Urbanization
November 18th 2014
Description from Boitempo:
In his most recent trip to Brazil, David Harvey talks about the urban protests dubbed “middle class revolts” that have been taking place all over the world, from São Paulo to Istanbul, against the backdrop of what he calls the “crisis of planetary urbanization”.
This lecture took place in Curitiba, Brazil on November 18th 2014, during a series of talks entitled “The Political Economy Of Urbanization”, marking the publishing of the second volume of his Companion to Marx’s Capital, by Boitempo. This trip took him also to the cities of Brasília, Recife, Fortaleza and São Paulo. The lectures also celebrated the publishing of Boitempo’s new edition of Volume II of Marx’s Capital – the first edition revised and expanded according to the documents of the MEGA2 project. Recently, Boitempo’s edition of Volume I of Capital was awarded the Jabuti Prize for translation – the most important prize in the brazilian publishing world. All of professor Harvey’s lectures were recorded and are being published on Boitempo’s channel on YouTube.
