The sixty million payoff to prison officers in Northern Ireland could be much better spent on addressing the causes of crime such as poverty, social deprivation and prison rehabilitation. Prison officers who served during the Troubles could walk away from their jobs with packages of more than £120,000 plus pension as part of a £60m redundancy programme aimed at ‘modernising’ the service.

Historian Mairtin O Cathain’s ‘Wee Black Booke’ has now been added to our archive for you to read or download. In it he pulls together reports of anarchism in and around Belfast in the years from 1867 to 1973. With no local movement for much of this period, the pamphlet looks at some individuals whose political activity merited mention in the media of the time. O Cathain’s work stops before the emergence in the late 1970s of the groups from which contemporary anarchist organisations Workers Solidarity Movement and Organise! can trace their roots.

La lotta unitaria dei comitati popolari dei villaggi e degli israeliani di "Anarchici contro il muro" è iniziata circa 12 anni fa nel campo di Mas'ha. Le lotte unitarie si sono sviluppate in vari villaggi con successo alterno, ma solo la lotta del villaggio di Bil'in si è fatta persistente anno dopo anno tenendo alta la bandiera della lotta popolare non-armata e diventando il punto di riferimento per l'attenzione e l'ispirazione dei Palestinesi di tutta di Cisgiordania e di migliaia di attivisti internazionali che si sono uniti a noi per brevi periodi (alcuni anche più a lungo) diffondendo le notizie e la lotta una volta tornati a casa. Anche alcune migliaia di attivisti della variegata sinistra radicale israeliana sono stati a Bil'in almeno una volta aiutandoci ad impedire l'emarginazione della resistenza popolare palestinese.

The joint struggle of the villages local popular comities and the Israeli "anarchists against the wall" initiative started about 12 years ago in the Maskha camp. Joint struggles were developed in various villages with various successes but only the struggle of Bil'in persisted for year after year holding high the flag of popular unarmed struggle and became the focus of attention and inspirations for Palestinians of the whole west bank, many thousands of international activists who joined us for short periods (and some for long ones)... spreading the news and the struggle after returning home. Even the few thousand of the Israeli wide spectrum of the radical left been in Bil'in at least once and helped us to prevent the marginalization of the popular Palestinian resistance. On the coming Friday - the 20th of February, we will celebrate our 10 years of contributing to the Palestinian Tsumud (persistence) - the only thing that prevented the Zionist total transfer out of the Palestinians.

The forth presidential term of Alexander Lukashenko will expire in 2015. In 21 years Lukashenko has managed to suppress almost all social struggles in the country, kill several political opponents in the 90s, and eradicate nearly all of the official opposition. Lukashenko didn’t allow Belarusian society to transcend the limits of Soviet mentality. Any complaint or criticism of the government are met with repression from the police or the KGB. Any attempts of organizing face with prosecution and hysteria from the state. The policy of the government can be described simply as follows: “Everything that cannot be controlled must be destroyed”. At this moment Belarusian state is slowly but steadily getting to the extermination of any dissent or independent thinking.

imageSobre la solidaridad del proceso social en Rojava: entrevista a un militante del DAF Feb 25 by BrunoL 0 comments

Nota preliminar: Rojava es una región autónoma en el Kurdistán Sirio, está compuesto por tres cantones ubicados al norte y al noroeste de Siria y que no se hallan contiguos: Efrin, Cezire y Kobane. La mayoría de la población aquí es kurda, pero hay gente de un sinnúmero de religiones y perteneciente a una importante diversidad de etnias. Durante la “Primavera Árabe” del 2011, cuando los ojos del mundo posaban sobre Egipto y Túnez, se desató la guerra civil en Siria. Un año después, ya en el verano del 2012, la autoridad de Bashar al-Assad y su gobierno perdió terreno en el Rojava. En lugar de aliarse a los rebeldes sirios, los kurdos decidieron optar por su autonomía, y declararon la libertad e independencia de su región de todo poder (Estado o Nación); optaron por el autogobierno. Si en algún momento los kurdos lucharon por su propio Estado, ahora lo hacen por el Confederalismo Democrático, un programa donde predomina la democracia directa desde las bases, la autonomía de gobierno, la equidad de género, la economía de cooperación y otros importantes pilares como la ecología y la cooperación federativa. En la actualidad, la Guerra Civil Siria ha planteado dos frentes contra los kurdos, por un lado el gobierno sirio y por otro los rebeldes extremistas en la zona (en especial el Estado Islámico); la vecina Turquía es hostil al proceso de Rojava e Iraq representa un riesgo latente debido al empuje de la coalición occidental y árabe contra el Estado Islámico en ese país. A continuación presentamos una entrevista realizada por Bruno Lima en enero del presente año a un militante de la organización turca Acción Revolucionaria Anarquista. Hemos alterado levemente el texto para insertar notas al final y permitir que la lectura sea más fluida, así como también para comprender la naturaleza de ciertas organizaciones que podrían ser ajenas al lector.

Μακεδονία-Θράκη 1903. Η οθωμανική τουρκική αυτοκρατορία βρισκόταν σε στάδιο παρακμής. Για αιώνες, οι Αρχές της κυβερνούσαν με σκληρότητα, επιβάλλοντας φόρους και άλλες υποχρεώσεις, αλλά στις περισσότερες περιπτώσεις επιτρέποντας στους υπηκόους να μιλούν τη γλώσσα τους και να λατρεύουν τη θρησκεία τους. Τώρα, όμως, ήταν μια εποχή κρίσιμη. Τα σύνορα της Αυτοκρατορίας δέχονταν πιέσεις, και η οθωμανική κυριαρχία γινόταν ολοένα και πιο σκληρή και καταπιεστική. Το φάσμα των απελευθερωτικών αγώνων στοίχειωνε τις φθίνουσες οθωμανικές κατακτήσεις στα Νότια Βαλκάνια. Βίαιες εξεγέρσεις διαδέχονταν η μία την άλλη, από τη μια γενιά στην επόμενη.
