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.

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

The merger between the Zionist leadership and the capitalist elite which started 1948 picked in the Tycoons dominance, at 20010. The "too successful" neo-liberalism was challenged by the social struggle, conflicts within the capitalist elite and threatened by international pressure yielded the diminishing power of the old order when the right lost its absolute power in the parliament depending now on the opponent of the milder Zionist right (Kachlon). It is not sure how fast the retreat in the neo-liberal trend and the defeat of the Tycoons combined with the international pressure will yield also retreat in the advance of the Zionist settler and transfer effort. Mean time the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Kadum, Ma'asarah, Southern Hebron Hills, Sheikh Jarrah, the Bedouins of the south, Dahamsh... with additional locations from time to time.

The minimal pressure of the imperial power on Israel to soften its pressures applied to the would be transfered Palestinians of the 1967 occupied areas have its results (more in the west bank than in the Gaza Ghetto). The about 100.000 Palestinians of the occupied territories are employed by Israelis. Most of the roadblocks were removed. The rebellion of the Palestinians in the west bank is channeled mostly through a small minority of activists in the joint and separate week end activities. People are like holding their breath to see if the culminated crisis in the international arena will yield a significant break throw. Mean time, the persistent week end struggles - though in a diminished intensity in Bil'in, Ma'asara, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills, Sheik Jarrah... with sporadic struggles in other locations.

Striscione sulla rampa. Foto: Christian Vassdal imageOslo: Azione diretta contro il Forum dell'Energia 15:19 Sat 07 Mar by Motmakt 0 comments

Il 18 febbraio, noi, ambientalisti autonomi, abbiamo appeso uno striscione di 40 mq dalla rampa di lancio con gli sci di Holmenkollen per protestare contro il Forum dell'Energia ad Oslo. Il Forum si teneva all'interno dell'Hotel Scandic, che si trova a solo 200 metri dalla rampa di lancio. Le ragioni per mettere lo striscione proprio lì sono state due: la prima per la notorietà nazionale del sito così vicino alla sede del Forum e la seconda perchè uno sport come lo sci potrebbe diventare presto qualcosa da trovare solo nei libri di storia se l'industria dei carburanti fossili continuerà a produrre gli attuali livelli di inquinamento.

Today we, a group of autonomous environmental activists, hung a 40 square metre banner from the Holmenkollen ski jump to protest the Oslo Energy Forum. The forum is being held at Scandic Holmenkollen Hotel, which is located just a couple of hundred metres from the ski jump. There are two primary reasons for why we chose to have our banner action at this location: firstly, because it is a national landmark that lies in close proximity to the place where the forum is held, and secondly, because winter sports like skiing will be something only found in history books if the fossil fuel industry is allowed to continue at its current levels of pollution.

Vi valgte Holmenkollbakken ikke bare fordi det er et kjent landemerke som vil gi budskapet vårt den nødvendige oppmerksomheten, men også fordi skisporten er noe av det vi bare kan glemme i framtiden hvis vi lar fossilindustrien fortsette å ødelegge kloden vår.

image¿La hipocresía de colarse en Transmilenio? Mar 24 by Acrata Libertario 0 comments

Dejémonos de hipocresías. Las cosas como son: el sistema de injusticia en el que vivimos no merece ninguna consideración. Resulta que ahora, debido al hambre que sufren millones de seres humanos y a la humillación a la que nos somete el orden en permanente “crisis”, el sistema saca a sus ideólogos baratos (disfrazados de periodistas) para mitigar lo que producen, que es la razón de su existencia. De nuevo salen los pseudo-investigadores con argumentos simples y poco elaborados, atacando donde no es, todo con el fin de defender el estatus-quo y el ejemplo del “buen ciudadano”. Este texto nace de la indignación e ira al saber que la ley es, de nuevo, una herramienta de uso fácil para los de arriba, quienes para justificar su actuar llaman a sus medios de desinformación para llenar las ciudades, medios virtuales y mentes con argumentos que solo pretenden ocultar el trasfondo de las cosas.

textLate contemplations about the Charlie Hebdo massacre Mar 24 by Mazen Kamalmaz 0 comments

The attack on Charlie Hebdo last January was carefully designed to the full benefit of IS, but also to the benefit of the ruling Elite in the advanced capitalist world. It was not intended as punishment for Charlie Hebdo's satiric attitude toward what IS considers as "sacred", but as punishment for millions of Muslims who accepted such an attitude by their silence, especially Muslims who live in France and the west. IS, like everyone else, knew very well that Muslims in Europe and the west will be under heavier pressure after such an attack. IS offered Muslims only one way to defend themselves: to accept its fundamentalist hyper-dogmatic version of Islam and join its ranks - martyrdom and heaven through killing and suicide bombing. The message of IS was clear: freedom of conscience and expression is never a part of Muslims' identity, so it must be declined, denied and fought against. Both IS and the western elite accepted this as a "fact".

Με πολύ λίγα λόγια, η διαδικασία αυτή σηματοδοτείται από μια σχεδόν χωρίς προηγούμενο επιτάχυνση αναδιαρθρώσεων που είχαν ως αποτέλεσμα την φτωχοποίηση των λαϊκών στρωμάτων και υποτίμηση της εργασιακής δύναμης, την εκτίναξη της ανεργίας σε ποσοστό που ξεπερνά το 1/4 του ενεργού πληθυσμού, την ελαχιστοποίηση του άμεσου και έμμεσου μισθού, την οικονομική ασφυξία των αυτοαπασχολούμενων, την υπερφορολόγηση των μικροϊδιοκτητών, την καταστροφή της μικροεπιχειρηματικότητας.

I contratti individuali a tutele crescenti, la ridefinizione del lavoro subordinato, la flessibilità svincolata dalla contrattazione, la monetizzazione dei licenziamenti e dell'espulsione dal ciclo produttivo hanno lo scopo immediato di portare all'irrilevanza il diritto di coalizione dei lavoratori ed il ruolo dell'organizzazione sindacale dentro le fabbriche.
