We imagined Сarnival4David as a space of solidarity. It was held in more than 200 locations worldwide from Zuccotti Park NY, in Rojava, the ZAD in France, Korea, Austria, Berlin and London—Portobello Road—the place where David spent the last years of his life.

Here you can see the recordings of broadcasts from around the world. We are working on an international video and will post it soon.

Carnival4David in Cairo

October 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EET

David had plans to come to Cairo that didn’t materialise. Together his friends in Cairo and those who loved him, were inspired by him or those who want to know him will light a candle for him and read bits of his chapter “Imagination” which is the conclusion from the book Direct Action. In the chapter David theorises about ontologies of imagination that challenge ontologies of violence. We will reflect on how these ontologies of the imagination resonate with the sociopolitical ecology in Egypt today. Anyone who wants to read anything else by David would be welcomed. As Nika says it’s not about the number of people who show up, it could be even two people, but the idea is to allow us to remember David, to celebrate his life and celebrate the values he stood by.
