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

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...

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue in spite of the huge changes in the region* 03:28 Thu 17 Mar by Ilan S. 1 comments

On the twelfth year of joined struggle in Bil'in it lost its glamour. Many of the activists lost the excitement of the direct action confrontation which is not a new thing any more. The expansion of the joint struggle to other locations and the expanding of the non armed struggle in the west bank contributed to it too. Many of the activists just "moved on" to a less intensive ways of life. But, some old time activists can not "let go". The other day, I searched the http://archive.org/web/ for the old site of: "This appeal, the first to call on-line for a boycott against Israel, was posted in April of 2001".(http://matzpun.com)... and read again our 35 original signatories of this pre-BDS. The majority are still in the struggle. Looking back on my 65 years of struggle I regard ainfos.ca, this petition, the joint struggle in Bil'in and my stories from the year 2100 - 50 years after the revolution* as the most significant ones.

textExarchia: Il Quartiere Anarchico di Atene 03:43 Fri 26 Feb by Now(A)k 0 comments

"Alcuni possono pensare che Exarchia sia solo un utopico esperimento nel complesso contesto greco. Altri che si tratti di un insignificante caso isolato tendente all’implosione e al fallimento. A me piace pensare che Exarchia possa rappresentare una solida realtà e una alternativa percorribile anche al di fuori della Grecia, per contrastare l’immobilità generale, la rassegnazione completa e l’afasia mista ad apatia che caratterizzano gran parte della popolazione europea colpita dalla crisi. E per dimostrare ancora una volta che la lotta e il cambiamento iniziano nelle strade, nelle piazze, nelle fabbriche, nelle Università, e non delegando a qualcuno il proprio dissenso, illudendosi per l’ennesima volta che le cose possano cambiare e cambieranno in meglio a favore del popolo oppresso attraverso l’elezione del politico di turno."

imagePrimer de Maig 2016, dia de la classe treballadora May 01 by Embat 0 comments

La forma en la qual es configura i s’organitza el capital al segle XXI ha suposat una gran transformació que tendeix a formes més globalitzades, enxarxades, descentralitzades, altament diversificades i disperses que els moviments sindical i social encara no han pogut contrarestar efectivament. La particularitat que vivim al sud d’Europa és la terciarització de la nostra economia on l’equivalent a les antigues fàbriques fabrils són els calls centers, l’hostaleria, les cadenes de menjar ràpid, les empreses de logística i altres formes d’activitat econòmica no vinculades a la producció. La indústria que queda a Catalunya perd la seva centralitat i es troba financiaritzada. És evident, que el model de conflicte laboral i cultura sindical heretat de la transició ha quedat completament desbordat per aquesta tendència i la reestructuració constant del capitalisme.

imageMAY DAY 2016 May 01 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The labour movement in Melbourne, though far declined from its former strength, has neither totally given up the ghost nor been allowed quarter by its enemies. Unions campaign for health and safety, against insecure work and against the use of temporary work visas to undermine labour standards. The campaigns, though, are undermined by the conservatism and timidity of the union officials, their support for the Labor Party and their nationalist focus on “Aussie jobs”, which interferes with building the necessary solidarity between local workers and super-exploited migrant workers. Meanwhile, the capitalists are proceeding with legislation to destroy the construction workers' union (CFMEU) and bring the entire union movement under close State supervision.

L’heure est la mobilisation générale contre la loi «Travail» mais aussi contre les politiques d’austérité, la casse des services publics, les attaques contre l’assurance-chômage, les cadeaux aux classes possédantes... Maintenant que nous sommes debout, qu’ils nous rendent tout!
Lycées, facs, jeunesse: Valls a essayé de désamorcer la colère avec quelques mesures qui ne changent rien à la casse du Code du travail que promet la loi El Khomri. Celle-ci va inciter le patronat à abuser des heures supplémentaires bon marché plutôt que d’embaucher. A l’arrivée: davantage de chômage et de précarité, davantage de salarié.e.s épuisé.e.s par des journées à rallonge.

image25 aprile 2016, 1 Maggio 2016 70 anni di Resistenza, 70 anni di lotte sociali Apr 30 by Alternativa Libertaria/FdCA 0 comments

Sono stati decenni in cui quel fascismo, sconfitto militarmente, è riuscito a inserirsi ed a riprodursi all’interno dello Stato e della criminalità organizzata, fino a compiere stragi di popolo per spargere il terrore necessario ad arrestare le lotte operaie e studentesche.
Sono stati decenni in cui il capitalismo italiano ha potuto riprendere l’accumulazione di profitti, imponendo al paese dure condizioni salariali e normative.
Ma l’operazione di riduzione a memorialistica e di depotenziamento del 25 aprile e del 1 Maggio, portata avanti dalle istituzioni statali e da organizzazioni sindacali collaborative e rinunciatarie, non è riuscita a distruggere l’antifascismo ed a falsificarne la memoria, non è riuscita a piegare le lotte dei lavoratori e la loro capacità organizzativa.

28 de abril de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Introdução

O Brasil vive um momento bastante interessante do ponto de vista analítico e desesperador para quem deseja transformar a sociedade brasileira do ponto de vista igualitário. Seria uma ilusão não observar que estamos diante de um golpe de Estado consumado dentro dos ritos formais de nosso arcabouço jurídico-institucional. Como vem sendo afirmado a partir de dois pensadores contemporâneos bastante lúcidos na crítica por esquerda – Vladimir Safatle – e por centro-esquerda – caso do hoje fundamental, Jessé Souza – o momento aponta o final do pacto de Golbery do Couto e Silva da abertura política e a meta estratégica é terminar a tarefa dos acordos de regulação social e os direitos avançados na Constituição de 1988. Para tanto, podemos passar pela aventura da direita (a que estava no governo até duas semanas atrás) e a da proponente do impeachment (a que estava na oposição formal), de um golpe com frágeis bases jurídicas e a derrota histórica para o processo de conciliação de classes, base do lulismo como estrutura de governo, pacto este que já fora operacionalizado por José Dirceu e executado pela hoje presidente Dilma Rousseff, quando a mesma substitui ao primeiro na pasta da Casa Civil, garante a consecução das obras do PAC e com isso assegura a reeleição de Lula em 2006.
