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.

Siamo al 13° giorno di guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas. In tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Tutto quello che Israele vuole da questa guerra è rompere l'unità di governo palestinese ed evitare l'accelerazione degli accordi di pace. Il problema causato dalla resa di Hamas, messa in ginocchio dalla crisi economica, alla Autorità Palestinese, deriva dalle scelte del governo egiziano, il quale minaccia molto seriamente quel progetto di divisione permanente dei Palestinesi a cui Israele ha dedicato tanti sforzi. Il solo totale collasso del governo di Hamas nella Striscia di Gaza spaventa Israele più di ogni altra cosa. [English]

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

Proprio quando la pressione dell'Europa su Israele per un compromesso con il governo palestinese stava cogliendo il momento giusto favorito dal calo in atto delle esportazioni israeliane, Israele ha cercato di trarre vantaggio dal rapimento dei tre giovani coloni applicando i "piani nel cassetto" nel tentativo di incendiare una intifada armata. Quasi tre settimane di propaganda basata su menzogne (come se sapessero già della morte dei tre giovani) hanno inondato i media. Quando alla fine i corpi sono stati "trovati", le bugie sono risultate per quello che erano e le intimidazioni per far accendere l'intifada hanno fallito l'obiettivo. I crescenti crimini di odio dell'estrema destra israeliana e l'uccisione di un giovane palestinese a Gerusalemme Est occupata hanno scatenato una dura reazione nella città e nelle zone palestinesi all'interno dei confini del 1948.

When the European pressure on Israel to compromise with the Palestinian elite collected momentum - already diminishing exports, Israel tried to take advanced of the kidnapped three settlers youth applying "plans from the drawer" trying to ignite armed Intifada. Nearly three weeks of propaganda based on lies (as if they are searching for the already known to them to be dead three youth) was all over the media. When lastly the bodies were "found", lies were exposed, and the harassments failed to ignite Intifada. The mounted hate crimes of the Israeli extreme right and murder of a Palestinian youth of the annexed East Jerusalem ignited an extreme response there and within the Palestinian regions within the 1948 borders. Vicious harassment of US-Palestinian youth - cousin of the murdered youth which was video typed became together with the video of the kidnapped cousin became viral all over the world and ignited solidarity demos all over the world.

textPalestina-Israele: Lotta senza fine per bloccare l'avanzata del progetto coloniale sionista 15:51 Sun 29 Jun by Ilan S. 0 comments

Negli ultimi 12 giorni la macchina propagandistica israeliana ha pompato alla grande sul caso del sequestro dei 3 giovani coloni al fine di giustificare ulteriori sforzi per spingere i palestinesi ad un trasferimento "volontario". Hanno finto di usare il sequestro per spezzare Hamas. In realtà hanno usato entrambi nel tentativo disperato di provocare una terza Intifada. Far confluire 700 soldati nel villaggio di Na'ama (vicino Bil'in) che conta 2000 abitanti per arrestare due attivisti di Hamas è una cosa davvero ridicola a cui è difficile dare credito. Falliti i tentativi di far scoppiare una terza Intifada e di bloccare il compromesso tra Hamas e Fatah (uno dei più importanti pilastri della politica israeliana del divide et impera), si fa sempre più invasiva la pressione delle potenze imperialiste mondiali su Israele per mettere fine all'occupazione del 1967.

La lotta palestinese non-armata si interfaccia con i cambiamenti nella regione e nelle dinamiche di potere mondiale a cui ha contribuito anche l'opinione pubblica nei paesi occidentali. I primi significativi successi della campagna B.D.S. (a cui partecipa la lotta unitaria) e il timore di parti dell'elite capitalista israeliana di perdere terreno a breve termine stanno minacciando lo status quo. Nonostante continuino gli sforzi di trasferire i palestinesi che vivono dentro Israele e nei territori occupati nel 1967, le conseguenze della crescente pressione internazionale sta portando a rotture all'interno dell'elite capitalistica israeliana al potere. La pressione per il compromesso dei 2-stati è stata espressa nell'appello di quasi metà della coalizione parlamentare al governo per predisporre la mappa del compromesso dei 2 stati. [English]

Se implementaron las famosas leyes orgánicas constitucionales; las AFP, las Isapres, el Código Minero, la Ley Orgánica Educacional, etc. Toda la deuda privada de muchos empresarios se transformaba, de manera arbitraria, en deuda pública del Estado.

Terminada la Copa del Mundo de Brasil, tenemos ahora el inicio de la contienda presidencial. Con el principio de la campaña electoral el análisis político vinculado a los intereses mayoritarios tiene que identificar el centro nervioso del manejo de los recursos colectivos. Es allí que incumbe a la base de la pirámide social brasilera. No se trata de maniqueísmo, porque sería frívolo igualar a los gobiernos de Fernando Henrique Cardoso (1995-2002) a los de Luis Inácio Lula da Silva (2003-2010) y Dilma Rousseff (cuyo primer mandato finaliza ahora en 2014). Y sería todavía más irresponsable posicionar en la izquierda la propuesta del lulismo. Veamos por qué.

Por un lado, tenemos a una derecha histórica que es incapaz de reacomodar un proyecto político coherente que le permita cohesionar a las distintas expresiones políticas que la conforman, al contrario, la fragmentación política vivida durante su último gobierno (Piñera) y el desarme que sufrieron luego de haber perdido las presidenciales del año pasado. Por otro lado, el conjunto de reformas instaladas en estos primeros 100 días de gobierno, están siendo cuestionadas por un número no menor de sectores organizados de la clase trabajadora, del estudiantado, y pobladores y pobladoras, que han seguido a pesar de este clima, movilizados, aunque con menor intensidad.

Dalla scomparsa dei tre coloni da Gush Etzion, (colonia per soli ebrei sotto il controllo totale dello stato di Israele in Cisgiordania), Israele ha posto sotto assedio quattro milioni di palestinesi, bombardando ospedali, scuole, ogni sorta di obiettivi civili, distruggendo e saccheggiando case, rubando, effettuando sequestri, ferendo e uccidendo sia in modo mirato che indiscriminato al di fuori di ogni legislazione internazionale.
