Abstracts
The text reflects on the emancipatory potential of the uprisings in Slovenia (2012–2013). These are understood as a local manifestation of the global phenomenon, recently seen all over the world. Drawing on Badiou’s understanding of the universal the uprisings in Slovenia are understood as a singular impulse of the universal struggle of the oppressed, or, with Rancière, “the not-counted”. In times that Badiou describes as “capitalo-parliamentarism”, this impulse opens up basic political questions: issues of common life, justice, and equality. I focus of the specific group of rebels who, with their demands, slogans, and activities, radicalized the entire process of rebellion, pushing it into the direction of true politics of equality, and opened up spaces of real political subjectivation, due to its understanding and practice of politics as a singular demand for the universal validity of its statements.
