A Fight For

On October 15, 2011, as part of the wave of protests that followed the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street, Slovenian activists occupied a square in front of the Ljubljana stock exchange, setting up tents and remaining there through the winter. A FIGHT FOR depicts the life of protesters in the camp, from the erection of the first tent to its dismantling six months later. The film provides a hard look at the difficulties involved in maintaining a protest space, and the quarrels among those involved. United in their opposition to corporate greed, the protestors organize themselves around principles of direct democracy. Everyone has a voice, and direct action workshops begin. But after their initial euphoria, winter sets in, and the occupiers concede they no longer have a consensus. As they eventually pack up and leave, they realize they’ve achieved a major goal: awakening people from their apathy. (In Slovenian with subtitles) – B.B.
