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.

Banner from the action. Photo: Christian Vassdal imageBanner action against Oslo Energy Forum 23:33 Thu 05 Mar by Motmakt 0 comments

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, en gruppe autonome miljøaktivister, har i dag festet et ca 40 kvm. stort banner til Holmenkollbakken for å protestere mot Oslo Energy Forum, som avholdes et stenkast unna hoppanlegget på Scandic Holmenkollen hotell. 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.

La lotta unitaria dei comitati popolari dei villaggi e degli israeliani di "Anarchici contro il muro" è iniziata circa 12 anni fa nel campo di Mas'ha. Le lotte unitarie si sono sviluppate in vari villaggi con successo alterno, ma solo la lotta del villaggio di Bil'in si è fatta persistente anno dopo anno tenendo alta la bandiera della lotta popolare non-armata e diventando il punto di riferimento per l'attenzione e l'ispirazione dei Palestinesi di tutta di Cisgiordania e di migliaia di attivisti internazionali che si sono uniti a noi per brevi periodi (alcuni anche più a lungo) diffondendo le notizie e la lotta una volta tornati a casa. Anche alcune migliaia di attivisti della variegata sinistra radicale israeliana sono stati a Bil'in almeno una volta aiutandoci ad impedire l'emarginazione della resistenza popolare palestinese.

The joint struggle of the villages local popular comities and the Israeli "anarchists against the wall" initiative started about 12 years ago in the Maskha camp. Joint struggles were developed in various villages with various successes but only the struggle of Bil'in persisted for year after year holding high the flag of popular unarmed struggle and became the focus of attention and inspirations for Palestinians of the whole west bank, many thousands of international activists who joined us for short periods (and some for long ones)... spreading the news and the struggle after returning home. Even the few thousand of the Israeli wide spectrum of the radical left been in Bil'in at least once and helped us to prevent the marginalization of the popular Palestinian resistance. On the coming Friday - the 20th of February, we will celebrate our 10 years of contributing to the Palestinian Tsumud (persistence) - the only thing that prevented the Zionist total transfer out of the Palestinians.

The forth presidential term of Alexander Lukashenko will expire in 2015. In 21 years Lukashenko has managed to suppress almost all social struggles in the country, kill several political opponents in the 90s, and eradicate nearly all of the official opposition. Lukashenko didn’t allow Belarusian society to transcend the limits of Soviet mentality. Any complaint or criticism of the government are met with repression from the police or the KGB. Any attempts of organizing face with prosecution and hysteria from the state. The policy of the government can be described simply as follows: “Everything that cannot be controlled must be destroyed”. At this moment Belarusian state is slowly but steadily getting to the extermination of any dissent or independent thinking.

Dopo 134 giorni di fiera resistenza e di strenua difesa, le donne e gli uomini combattenti di Kobane sono riusciti finalmente a sconfiggere il feroce attacco di ISIS grazie anche al sostegno ricevuto da milioni di persone in tutto il mondo. Non è solo una sconfitta per l'ISIS e per il suo sogno di instaurare un Califfato Islamico. Ma si tratta anche della vanificazione del sogno dell'alleato dell'ISIS, il governo turco, di far risorgere l'impero ottomano.
L'attacco a Kobane è stato una guerra per procura portato dall'ISIS in nome dei regimi della regione contro il coraggio del popolo di Kobane e contro l'Autonomia Democratica. [English]

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.

El ejemplo más triste fue el protagonizado por el diputado DC Pablo Lorenzini quien afirmó que algunas violaciones se producían porque las mujeres habían bebido unos “traguitos de más”, por su parte la Iglesia quiere impedir su aprobación a toda costa. Y como siempre poco se ha escuchado la voz de las mujeres. A continuación reproducimos una columna escrita por la Alzada publicado por Solidaridad el año 2013.
