People in deprived areas in Northern Ireland are three times more likely to take their lives. Health minister Edwin Poots said, ‘Unemployment rates in deprived areas further affect people and this is a major concern. Studies indicate that a 1% increase in unemployment is met with a corresponding 0.79% increase in suicide. ... read full story / add a comment

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.

Turkish troops and so-called 'moderate Islamist' Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants have entered Jarablus town centre and taken over all government buildings from Islamic State. Reports say almost no clashes took place between the two sides as IS militants had evacuated the city days before. Footage from FSA militants also shows that there is no civilian presence left in the city in Syria's north.

Dopo tanti anni è dura abituarsi alla sostituzione dei lacrimogeni e dei proiettili con la minaccia di essere arrestati se uno supera una certa linea immaginaria. Per molti anni ci siamo preoccupati di quando sarebbe arrivato il giorno in cui chi prende le decisioni nello Stato di Israele avrebbe ridotto al minimo e persino interrotto la dura repressione delle manifestazioni unitarie settimanali contro l'occupazione, contro i coloni e contro il muro della separazione. Il 27-5-16 a Bil'in fu la prima volta in cui le forze di stato non spararono su una manifestazione. Ce ne vollero altre dodici così perchè capissimo che eravamo davanti ad un vero cambiamento di strategia. Lo scorso venerdì loro ci hanno persino "invitato" a tornare a manifestare nell'area del nuovo muro della separazione - proibita a tutti noi da almeno un anno. Pare che i tanti milioni investiti nella lotta per contrastare la campagna B.D.S. (boicottaggio, disinvestimento, sanzioni contro le merci israeliana, ndr) siano serviti ad assumere dei managers più intelligenti in grado di costringere l'esercito a ingoiare il proprio orgoglio ed a smettere di maltrattare le manifestazioni del venerdì e gli attivisti internazionali che
vi prendono parte.

After so many years it is hard to get used to the replacement of tear gas and bullets with threat of arrests if we cross an imaginary line. For many years we worried about the day when the Israeli state decision makers will minimise or even stop the the harsh repression of the weekly joint demonstrations against the occupation, the settlers and the separation wall. On 27-5-16 was the first demo in Bil'in the state forces did not shoot us. It took a dozen such non shootings to realize it is a real strategic shift. The last Friday they even "invited" us to return the demo to the area near the new separation wall - forbidden for us for about a year. It seems the multi millions invested in the struggle against the B.D.S. recruited a more intelligent managers who was able to force the army to swallow their pride and stop harassing the Friday demos and the international activists participating in them.

The message the left wing government wants to transmit is that there is no space for solidarity and self-managed responses to the ordeal of the refugees, only the state’s charity and the confinement, marginalisation and selective deportation carried out by a government that follows to the letter the criminal immigration policies of the EE.

Για να υψωθεί τοίχος ενάντια στην βαρβαρότητα των αφεντικών και στην εργασιακή συνθήκη που μας επιβάλλουν , οι εργαζόμενοι πρέπει να δημιουργήσουν πυρήνες αντίστασης και διεκδίκησης σε κάθε χώρο εργασίας. Οι συνθήκες εργασίας και οι εργατικές νομοθεσίες δεν πρόκειται να αλλάξουν ούτε από μόνες τους ούτε από δεξιές ή αριστερές κυβερνήσεις αλλά μόνο με τους αγώνες των καταπιεζόμενων.

Θα σεβαστούμε κάθε θέση τους αρκεί αυτή να είναι ξεκάθαρη απέναντι μας, απέναντι στο κίνημα της αλληλεγγύης και ολόκληρη την κοινωνία των “από κάτω”. Ας σεβαστούν όμως και οι ίδιοι πως έχουμε όλο το δικαίωμα να γνωρίζουμε το τι θέλουν κάνουν, και πως δεν έχουν κανένα δικαίωμα να παίζουν παιχνίδια με την αλληλεγγύη, την αξιοπρέπεια και τις ιδέες ενός κινήματος που έρχεται μέσα από την ιστορία και κατά τη γνώμη μας ξαναγράφει δειλά δειλά νέες σελίδες σε αυτή.
