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

textPal-Isra, The one state the joint struggle try to change*. 14:08 Mon 30 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

You struggle when you have hope for a developing change. You struggle when you refuse to accept the present as the only possible future. You struggle even when the hope is low just to keep your dignity from evaporating. And there are people their rage is so strong that no reasoning can hold them back. Now, when the hope for a better common future evaporated, and the hope for a nice personal future is even lower, the anger of lot of youth is stronger than the preservation of life instinct... it is just waiting for a chancy trigger to pull another boy or girl and send them to a suicide mission. And the mighty Israeli state just start to admit that their brutality reached the wall it cannot overcome. The military elite already stated to reveal it in the open that the new emerging "individualist" Intifada cannot be stopped by force. For those who are not burnt out or desperate the non armed joint struggle is the only sane road.

El Congreso argentino aprobó este jueves la expropiación del Hotel Bauen y su entrega a la cooperativa de trabajadores que lo recuperó y lo autogestiona desde 2003, año en que sus propietarios cerraron el negocio tras la crisis de 2001 en Argentina.

El 26 de noviembre –con el boicot de asistencia de la mayoría de los parlamentarios conservadores–, la Cámara de Diputados argentina aprobaba de forma unánime la expropiación del inmueble de la empresa recuperada Hotel Bauen por una deuda que el titular mantiene con el Estado por créditos no atendidos.

A Embat volem manifestar que:

– Declarem el nostre rebuig frontal davant dels atemptats i la nostra solidaritat amb les víctimes, els seus familiars i els seus cercles pròxims.

– Exigim als governs de França i Espanya que deixin de desestabilitzar governs laics a l’Orient Mitjà, de donar suport polític a Turquia i les monarquies del Golf i de finançar i armar Al-Qaida i altres bandes salafistes a Síria i l’Iraq.

– Recordem a l’opinió pública catalana que els terroristes de l’DAESH (Estat Islàmic), d’Al-Qaida i altres bandes similars atempten diàriament al món islàmic matant desenes de musulmans. El problema no són els musulmans: és el salafisme, que és un fanatisme religiós

Con una masiva convocatoria se realizó por las calles del centro de Concepción la llamada “Marcha por la Defensa del Mar y la Tierra”, convocada por la Coordinadora Intercomunal Contra Octopus, a la que adhirieron diversas comunidades de la zona organizadas frente al megaproyecto energético. Se hizo hincapié en denunciar la ilegalidad del proyecto que avanza con el apoyo del ministro de energía Máximo Pacheco, el cual impacta de manera nefasta a la pesca artesanal, la gastronomía, el turismo y la cultura de las comunidades de la bahía de Concepción y sacrifica el corazón agrícola de Bulnes.

textPale-Isra - The one state the "realist" Zionists strived for and the (joint) struggle*. 13:36 Sun 08 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

In the beginning of the British mandate of the both sides of the Jordan, when Palestine was divided by the UK into two entities - each on one side of the Jordan, the secular national socialists accepted it while the rightist opposed. They still have in their movement anthem: "two sides to the Jordan - this side and the other are ours too". After Israel grabbed 75% of the west bank of Palestine in 1948 war, the Zionist elite of all trends was urging and waiting for opportunity to enlarge its share. The 1956 war failed to supply it but the 1967 one gave Israel all the west bank (and some more like Sinai - which it had to give back). The efforts to transfer the Palestinian out was successful in 1948 war, was less successful in the 1967 war, and much less substantial later - in spite of the efforts. The fear of transfer which inhibited the urge to struggle - both within 1948 borders and the enlarged 1967 ones is gradually dwindling and the non armed popular struggle - though hesitant, is gradually collecting momentum.

textE' il momento della Terza Intifada - la lotta unitaria continua 19:08 Sun 25 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Il fallimento da parte dell'imperialismo USA nel prendere il controllo di paesi relativamente indipendenti come l'Iraq e la Siria ha portato al compromesso con l'indipendente Iran. Il ruolo minaccioso di Israele durante la trattativa ha permesso ad Israele di poter agire più liberamente nella repressione contro i Palestinesi. Il ritorno della Russia sullo scenario siriano ridà fiato ad Israele che può intensificare i suoi tentativi di assumere il controllo dell'area C in Cisgiordania. La terza intifada è una risposta disperata dei Palestinesi che vedono la fine dell'occupazione israeliana allontanarsi fino a scomparire all'orizzonte. La lotta unitaria continua non come speranza che cresce ma come tenace Tsumud (persistenza, ndt) di non arrendersi. [English]

El Estado Islámico

Mucho se ha especulado, acerca de la financiación del llamado Estado Islámico (EI, ISIS o Daesh). Lo que se sabe, es que el tiene una circulación de venta de petróleo que gira en torno a US 1 millón de dólares diario, teniendo posibilidad de alcanzar 3 millones de dólares. ¿La duda no es como extrae petróleo, ya que domina territorios con refinerías, pero sí como compensa estas ventas?.

Ο αγώνας απέναντι στην συνθήκη αυτή του ολοένα βαναυσότερου εγκλεισμού της κοινωνίας στα καλούπια των αφεντικών, δεν μπορεί παρά να κοιτά κατάματα τον δεσμοφύλακα. Τα δεσμά της ανθρωπότητας τα έχουν γερά κρατημένα τα κράτη και το κεφάλαιο. Η ζωή των κινημάτων των «από τα κάτω» δείχνει τον δρόμο προς την κοινωνική απελευθέρωση. Και αυτός ο δρόμος δεν γίνεται να αφήνει πίσω του αμαχητί τα θύματα της καταστολής. Η κοινωνική χειραφέτηση περνάει μέσα από κάθε αγώνα ενάντια στις επιβολές του κράτους.
