The WSM had its Autumn national conference in Dublin on the 23rd November.  National Conference is the ultimate decision making body in the WSM. It happens every six months usually over a day or two. As well as discussing motions time is also spent on discussing the past six months activity and prospects for the next period. Conference also hears reports of activity from all branches, officers and working groups.  This covered areas like the Irish Anarchist Review, WSM Website, Dublin Anarchist Bookfair and our pro-choice and anti racist work. ... read full story / add a comment

In 2012 the attempt by the government to Quebec to introduce a 75% fee hike was defeated by the organisation of a mass student strike that lasted over 6 months. That fee increase was part of the global process of imposing the privatisation and commodification of education. Since the victory, organisers of the strike have been being doing speaking tours to aid the process whereby "youth and students everywhere are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to organize as a means to defend education as a social right". In September this tour reaches Ireland where we need to hear how a sustained and militant student movement that can win is built. ... read full story / add a comment

Sabato a Dublino ha visto un altro disperato tentativo da parte della coalizione "anti-scelta" [ossia contro la scelta della donna di decidere - ndt.] di evitare che il Dáil (la Camera irlandese) introduca legislazione che permetterebbe l'aborto in casi in cui la vita della donna è in pericolo. Nonostante mesi di preparazione, comportando una spesa che deve essere stato vicino a un milione di euro, e nonostante che i parroci, durante la messa in ogni parocchia, abbiano reso obbligatorio la partecipazione a tutti i cattolici, meno di 15.000 si sono presentati alla manifestazione. Rispetto alle 150.000 donne che hanno dovuto viaggiare per ottenere aborti negli ultimi decenni, ciò equivale a quasi nulla, un pugno di fanatici trasportati in autobus da tutto il paese.

Saturday in Dublin saw another desperate attempt by the anti-choice coalition to prevent legislation coming to the Dail (Irish parliament) to allow abortion where a women's life is under threat. Despite months of preparation, a spend that must have ran close to a million euro, and the parish priest at every mass in the country telling catholics they should attend, less that 15,000 turned up. Compared to the 150,000 women who have had to travel to obtain abortions in the last ecades this amounts to almost nothing, a handful of bigots bussed in from all over the country.

This afternoon the government had finally confirmed that it is to legislate for abortion access under the conditions of the X-case. While we can welcome the failure of the anti-choice movement to stop this announcement, despite frantically spending a quarter of a million dollars euro in ten days, this is so little so late that it is almost meaningless. ... read full story / add a comment

Last night saw hundreds of pro-choice activists blockade the gates of the Dáil after TD's once more refused to pass X-case legislation. Twenty years after the X-case and one month after the death of Savita Halappanavar women in Ireland were told once more that the politicians had not had enough time. The political parties, in particular the Labour Party, were once more engaged in a cynical game of playing politics - a game that leaves pregnant women at continued risk in Irish hospitals. ... read full story / add a comment

A huge secretive Garda security operation last night swung into operation in Dublin Port as Shell's Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) left the port as part of a huge convoy of Garda vehicles. News of the operation had leaked at the last minute meaning that with only an hours notice a handful of Shell to Sea campaigners managed to get down to the port entrance despite the pouring rain. Most of us were pulled over and questioned by Garda at least once and the Garda helicopter stayed overhead as various Garda vehicles including a van load of riot cops with the door open drove past us repeatedly. ... read full story / add a comment

Saturday's National Rally against the Household Tax in the National Stadium was literally filled to overflowing. As well as nearly 3,000 people crammed into every possible space in the Stadium another 4 to 500 were in the car park at the side, unable to fit into the building. And the thousands who attended were angry, energized and expectant of victory. The National Stadium normally hosts boxing marches but the atmosphere on Saturday topped that of watching a home fighter coming out on top in a close fought bout. ... read full story / add a comment

Una consistente forza composta da polizia e operai comunali è stata impiegata alle 3.30 dell'8 marzo, Giornata Internazionale delle Donne, per sgomberare la tendopoli di Occupy Dame Street. La tendopoli è stata del tutto demolita nel corso dello sgombero, intimiditi i camperisti e sequestrati i loro beni personali. Uno spiegamento di forze del tutto sproporzionato rispetto ai numeri presenti nella tendopoli a quell'ora (circa 15 persone) e fortemente in contrasto con la addotta mancanza di risorse da impiegare per le indagini su cosa è successo alla Anglo-Irish Bank, il cui collasso ha lasciato un debito di €26.000 pro-capite per ogni irlandese.

A large force of Garda and council workers were deployed at 3.30am today, International Women's Day, to clear Occupy Dame Street (ODS) camp. The camp was completely demolished in the course of the eviction, campers intimidated and their personal property stolen. This was a level of force way out of proportion with the numbers in the camp (about 15 people) and stands in contrast with the lack of resources put into investigating what happened at Anglo, the collapse of which has left a debt of 26,000 Euro on every single person in the country.   [Italiano] ... read full story / add a comment

I membri del WSM (Workers Solidarity Movement) si sono uniti alla manifestazione ma la Garda (la polizia irlandese, ndt) ha intercettato la persona che trasportava le nostre bandiere e i nostri striscioni rendendoci invisibili.

Continua la guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas, anche se in tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. 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.

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]

textPalestine-Israel - a struggle that never ends between Zionist settler colonialism and the indigenous... 15:25 Sun 20 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

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]

imageLa solución final en Palestina Aug 01 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Benjamín Netanyahu dijo que el ejército está dispuesto a legar hasta el final en esta operación. Oficialmente, el “final” significa acabar con los túneles mediante los cuales los prisioneros del ghetto de Gaza pueden obtener alimentos, medicinas y todas esas cosas que les están vedadas por el bloqueo medieval que sufren por parte de Israel, con el respaldo europeo, norteamericano y egipcio. Significa cortar las venas con las cuales Gaza aún puede palpitar, estable en su gravedad, y acelerar la muerte lenta de esta comunidad de cerca de dos millones de seres humanos por hambre, por enfermedad, por sed. Parece que Israel está tomándose muy en serio la aplicación de la “Solución Final” al “problema palestino”.

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).
