ireland / britain / crime prison and punishment / news report Friday November 11, 2011 - 21:03 by Sean Matthews
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.

The recession in the economy means that working people are having to come to terms with growing house repossessions, below inflation pay-increases, and a steep rise in the cost of living. Meanwhile, property developers and banks are busy using the credit crunch and the downturn in the housing market to get Government bail outs, despite the fact that it was their speculative polices that helped created the mess in the first place. ... read full story / add a comment

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle persist in spite of burn-out of veteran activists*. 12:26 Sat 07 May by Ilan S. 1 comments

The first years of the joint struggle against the wall had some gains that drew activists to the struggle. However, for years the continuous joint struggle have much more gains, but not on the ground for people to see with their eyes. Gradually both Palestinians and Israeli activists dropped out with not so many to replace them. Still, on the weekly demonstrations the participants - Israelis, internationals, and Palestinians are far from any thought on quitting. We see the changes in the international arena. Taste of it is brought to us by the international activists who keep coming. If the weekly demos reminded activists the activity of Sisyphus of rolling a heavy rock uphill to the summit just to have it down again, it is clear to any one who see the whole picture that the rolling of the rock uphill again and again is decimating the hill and may be we are not so far from the last rolling of the rock up the hill.

textMobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai contre la Loi Travail 13:50 Wed 27 Apr by Relations Extérieures de la CGA 0 comments

Depuis plus d'un mois et demi, de larges secteurs de la société sont mobilisés contre la loi travail, et l'opinion publique rejette très massivement ce nouveau coup porté aux travailleur-ses.
Plus d'un million de manifestant-e-s sont descendu-e-s dans la rue lors de la mobilisation interprofessionnelle du 31 mars, à laquelle s'ajoutent des mobilisations dans la jeunesse ou encore la multiplication des Nuits Debout. Ce mouvement de fond exprime un ras-le-bol et catalyse l'exaspération liée aux attaques incessantes contre les salarié-e-s pour le plus grand bénéfice du patronat.
Alors qu'au mois de mai, le texte de loi sera débattu au Parlement, l'enjeu est d'augmenter massivement le rapport de force en faveur des travailleur-ses, chômeur-ses et de la jeunesse pour que ce projet de régression sociale soit abandonné. Les prochaines mobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai doivent marquer un tournant pour construire un blocage économique qui impose au gouvernement de reculer.

textPalestine-Israel, New people join, some veterans left, pressures intensify... but the joint struggle... 17:13 Sat 02 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

Last Friday (1.4) lot of anarchist flags again in Bil'in challenging the new efforts to put end to the Friday demos in the village. The long range tear gas cannisters prevent any interaction with the Israeli soldiers and stoped the demonstrators from exiting the village - like in the demonstrations in Bil'in eleven years ago before the intense efforts to put end to the demonstrations was replace with the contention of them; and like in the other locations - Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum where the efforts to put end to the demonstrations intensify. (So are with out the success the intense efforts to strangle the south of Hebron hills activities with other means.) People with keen ears can already hear the beginning of the countdown towards the end of the imperial settler colonial project in the East of the Mediterranean sea. May be the acceleration of the process is the result of the accumulation of the fiascos of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Libya...

imageNo rastro da nova-velha direita e o giro reacionário do senso comum brasileiro – 1 May 27 by BrunoL 0 comments

23 de maio de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Introdução

Neste primeiro artigo para o Comitê em Defesa da Democracia a ser publicado no Jornal Já e redistribuído através das redes alternativas, inicio uma breve série tentando mapear a nova (velha) direita. O objetivo deste e dos textos que seguem é tentar identificar a origem contemporânea do giro reacionário do senso comum brasileiro e suas similitudes com o conservadorismo dos EUA, e, por consequência, a transferência do léxico, do glossário e das identidades políticas gestadas no interior do sistema político do Império. Entendo que, se identificarmos os focos domésticos e internacionais do pensamento conservador, reacionário, ultraliberal e com laços neofascistas, estaremos aptos a tentar estancar o que venho afirmando como “fedor de linha chilena” tendo vasto crescimento no Brasil.

textAnálisis de Coyuntura 2016 para la Europa que viene May 25 by Emb4t 0 comments

Este fin de semana han tenido lugar unas elecciones presidenciales en Austria. En ellas la ultraderecha ha estado a punto de vencer. Viendo quien la ha votado descubrimos con sorpresa (o quizá no tanta) que son las clases trabajadoras y el mundo rural quien más ha apoyado esta opción. Mientrastanto el candidato ecologista ha sido apoyado por la juventud y las clases medias educadas y las rentas más altas. Esta situación se repite a lo largo y ancho del Continente y pensamos que hoy en día es estructural a cómo se han conformado las clases sociales en este siglo XXI. Culpa de ello la tiene el elitismo y la arrogancia de la vieja izquierda del post68, pero también vemos con alarma cómo las opciones ultraderechistas y fascistas tiene bastantes posibilidades de gestionar las sucesivas crisis (económicas, ecológicas, sociales, energéticas, climáticas y demográficas) que tendrán lugar en la década del 2020.

La izquierda libertaria, hoy marginal en Europa, debe intentar construir una alternativa política y social a gran escala para evitar esta situación. La estrategia propuesta por Embat pasa por construir grandes movimientos populares que puedan tener posibilidades de generar mayorías sociales entorno suyo para hacer frente tanto al neoliberalismo como al creciente populismo de derechas anti-liberal.

Η Ελευθεριακή Πρωτοβουλία Θεσσαλονίκης μαζί με συντρόφους/ισσες πραγματοποίησε παρέμβαση με πανό και μοίρασμα κειμένων έξω από το Μέγαρο Μουσικής ως μια ελάχιστη προσπάθεια να καταδείξουμε την υποκρισία της Ευρώπης των αφεντικών, του σύγχρονου ολοκληρωτισμού. Η παρέμβαση βρήκε θετική ανταπόκριση από αρκετό κόσμο που πήγαινε να παρακολουθήσει τη συναυλία ενώ απολαυστικά ήταν τα βλέμματα μίσους αρκετών αστών και "μένουμε Ευρώπη" στη θέα του πανό.
