The ban on fireworks is a

The ban on fireworks is a restriction on individual and collective freedom, and the latest attack in the netherlands on the right of communities to self-determine their collective rituals around new years. It is also a further step in the pacification and disarming of the people (working and poor people in particular), seeing how fireworks are often used at protests (anarchist ones included). I cannot see how you can 'not mind' something like that. If the people in a neighborhood want to locally ban fireworks, of course I would support that. But that is not what is happenjing here. What is happening here is the further extension of state control, externally imposed discipline and 'civilization', and a frontal state attack on popular culture. There was a time in the netherlands when anarchists and socialists would join in the resistance against such attacks, and as a result this resistance would increase in its anarchist and socialist characteristics as well as contribute to revolutionary conscioisness ans organisation (an example is the Palingsopstand in Amsterdam).

Of course it would be great if these people had already risen up for countless things in the past, and im sure some of them have, but people are not made in revolutionary heaven (as black panther women said about many black panther men). People rise up with the ideas that they have, from the social, material and political context they are in. Part of this is the general lack of revolutionary consciousness and organisation in the netherlands. If anarchists want to build these things, instead of standibg on the sidelines and being increasingly marginalized as fascists do take the opportunity to use the understandable anger of the people and translate them into their political programme, anarchists need to be open to people who rise up against state oppression. I'm not saying something strange here.
