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

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

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 continue in spite of the drop out of activists* 02:41 Wed 08 Jun by Ilan S. 1 comments

Two consecutive Fridays without being shot at after 11 years can destabilize even long time activist like me.... For 13 years the anarchists against the wall initiative and Palestinian partners continue the struggle even when the expectation for practical gains diminished. Changes in the separation fence/wall are less likely than ever. The remaining road blocks are the ones which are not just for marginal harassments. The diminishing hardship inflicted on activists opened other personal options than struggle. However, there are still a hard core of old time activists and some new of the younger generation. The contribution of the joint struggle to gains in the international support is more obvious than ever, and even less radical joint struggles continue in parallel like Sheikh Jarakh, Taayush in the south and "militants for peace".

Como todos los años, hoy 21 de mayo, se realizó la cuenta pública del gobierno al interior del Parlamento. En ella la presidenta no anunció ninguna medida que aumente sustancialmente la calidad de vida de los pueblos y la clase trabajadora; omitió referirse sobre la nefasta reforma laboral, blindó la farsa del “proceso constituyente”, afirmó que se está avanzando en materia educacional –sin la participación de las y los estudiantes, claro-, señaló que la solución para el problema de las pensiones es “agilizar” el proyecto de AFP estatal, etc. Nada nuevo bajo el sol.

Par ailleurs, la jeunesse a été très mobilisée en mars mais peine à franchir un nouveau palier et les vacances puis les examens universitaires n’aident pas. Comment rebondir?

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.

Μετά τη συμφωνία της 18ης Μαρτίου μεταξύ Ε.Ε. και Τουρκίας, ένα νέο σκηνικό φάνηκε να διαμορφώνεται στη Λέσβο για ακόμα μία φορά. Οι περιπολίες των νατοϊκών, ευρωπαϊκών και τουρκικών σκαφών εντατικοποιήθηκαν ελαχιστοποιώντας τις βάρκες με μετανάστες-ριες που καταφέρναν να περάσουν τα ελληνικά υδάτινα σύνορα, ενώ ένα νέο εσωτερικό «σύνορο» δημιουργήθηκε στο λιμάνι της Μυτιλήνης. Όσοι πρόλαβαν να περάσουν πριν τη συγκεκριμένη ημερομηνία προωθήθηκαν στην ηπειρώτικη Ελλάδα για να καταλήξουν στα διάφορα «κέντρα φιλοξενίας» και η Λέσβος μετατράπηκε, μαζί με τα υπόλοιπα 4 νησιά που προέβλεπε η συμφωνία, σε μία ιδιότυπη φυλακή για όσους-ες συνεχίζουν να φτάνουν από τις 20 Μαρτίου και μετά , ημερομηνία έναρξης της εφαρμογής της.

El atentado de Orlando, estado de Florida (EEUU), realizado en la madrugada de domingo, 12 de junio, congrega lo que de peor tenemos hoy en términos de amenaza visible para la idea de democracia de masas. La acción terrorista y de crimen de odio aproxima extremos sectarios, generando tanto una onda de islamofobia así como visibilidad de la homofobia en escala de pavor societario.

imageNo rastro da nova-velha direita e o giro reacionário do senso comum brasileiro – 2 Jun 21 by BrunoL 0 comments

20 de junho de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Introdução da segunda parte da série

Neste segundo artigo da série da nova-direita, desenvolvo a ideia de como o senso comum foi sendo colonizado por ideias reacionárias, que terminam sendo um modo reativo diante das tímidas e, por vezes, pífias políticas de reconhecimento promovidas pelo governo temporariamente afastado e o pacto lulista iniciado em 2003. Na esteira deste reacionarismo social e de âmbito na cultura e na religião, vemos espetáculos dantescos de misoginia, de homofobia e um rechaço “medieval” aos avanços obtidos dentro da Constituição Federal de 1988. Insisto na tese de linha chilena, ao menos até 1981, quando o pau de arara e as máquinas de moer carne humana das forças repressivas de Augusto Pinochet e cia. eram complementadas pelo asqueroso preceito dos Chicago Boys, doutores e mestres em economia na Universidade de Chicago, para onde foram às dezenas por duas décadas a soldo de bolsas do Império.

O atentado de Orlando, Florida, realizado na madrugada de domingo, 12 de junho, congrega o que de pior temos hoje em termos de ameaça visível para a ideia de democracia de massas. A ação terrorista e de crime de ódio aproxima extremos sectários, atiçando tanto uma onda de islamofobia assim como visibilidade da homofobia em escala de pavor societário. Também caracteriza um momento onde a política interna dos Estados Unidos consegue se mundializar, através de redes cibernéticas, efeitos virais e de lealdades ideológicas onde a América Latina reproduz, pela via de elites econômicas e midiáticas pautadas pelo viralatismo, as piores clivagens da direita republicana, dos ultra liberais e neoconservadores orientados pelo crivo religioso.

Αυτές οι μεταρρυθμίσεις είναι κομμάτι της ριζικής αναμόρφωσης του εκπαιδευτικού συστήματος που επιχειρείται την τελευταία δεκαετία στο Μεξικό και στόχο έχει την κατάργηση του δημόσιου χαρακτήρα της εκπαίδευσης.

image[Colombia] Manifiesto Marika Jun 21 Colectiva Severas Flores 0 comments

Somos la Colectiva Severas Flores. Somos colectiva como grupo de personas, no como masa uniforme, sino como conjunto heterogéneo, como multiplicidad de cuerpos, existencias, sentires y luchas que se atreven al encuentro; y somos colectiva en la medida que resistimos al lenguaje patriarcal desde el ejercicio de denuncia de la masculinización de las lenguas, desde el reconocernos como palabras y espacios en disputa, construcción y deconstrucción.

Somos libertaria porque asociamos lo libertario con la tradición anarquista de la eliminación de todas las formas de opresión; entendemos lo libertario como la posición que lucha por la libertad de “ser” con otres, de existir en colectivo, de destruir todas las formas autoritarias en que se intenta encapsular el poder.

Somos severas flores porque nos re-apropiamos de una burla, de un chiste, de un insulto, de una violencia naturalizada, solapada, que esconde un profundo sexismo hacia cuerpos considerados masculinos al proponerlos débiles, femeninos, errados, insuficientes. Somos flores, flores tan fuertes como delicadas. Somos severas al pararnos duro, echar raíces contra la explotación y resistir siendo nosotres mismes. Entendemos la feminidad no como sinónimo de debilidad o pasividad sino como uno de tantos colores que nos componen y que la monocromía patriarcal quiere negar. Las flores crecen a pesar de todo, son el esfuerzo constante de una planta para sacar semilla, contienen los órganos sexuales de ellas y son parte del equilibrio natural interespecie. Al mismo tiempo las flores transitan, son efímeras; tan efímeras como nuestras vidas y burlan el dogma, la rigidez y el control que se quiere imponer en nuestras formas de verlas, pues están sujetas al cambio, a la mutación. Las flores rompen el sistema de prejuicios, negando lo binario y proponiendo lo múltiple, dado que muchas son hermafroditas, diversas, subversivas: No sólo son “bellas”, hay flores horribles que se cagan en los cánones de belleza racistas y occidentales; no todas huelen “bien”, algunas apestan a rebeldía y sueños de libertad; no todas son débiles, algunas matan, incomodan e irritan si no se les respeta.

Στην ΕΣΕ λειτουργούμε πέρα από συντεχνιακές λογικές και δεν διακρίνουμε ανάμεσα σε εργαζόμενους του δημόσιου και του ιδιωτικού τομέα, σε έλληνες και μετανάστες, σε άντρες και γυναίκες. Για τον κόσμο της εργασίας, η ελευθερία δεν νοείται σε ένα περιβάλλον διακρίσεων που γίνονται με βάση τη φυλή, το φύλο, το χρώμα, το είδος, την ηλικία, τις σεξουαλικές προτιμήσεις, τα σωματικά χαρακτηριστικά. Κοινός αντίπαλος μας είναι το σύστημα του καπιταλισμού και η εκμετάλλευση. Καθημερινά θέτουμε τους όρους ενός συνεχούς αγώνα για τη βελτίωση των ζωών μας και την απελευθέρωση τους από την καταπίεση.
