The announcement from the Irish government that households are to face a charge of €100 per annum from January 1st with separate water and property taxes to follow by 2014 has met with fierce opposition across the country.  Radio and television shows have been inundated with texts and phonecalls from irate people who see this latest tax as a step too far and who have been pledging to resist the charge.  In a TV3 IrelandAM poll this morning, Wednesday, 87% of people answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Would you consider boycotting the household charge?” ... read full story / add a comment

Durante le proteste contro la finanziaria davanti a Dáil Éireann [camera dei deputati] il 7 dicembre 2010, Gregor Kerr ha pronunciato il seguente discorso a nome del Workers Solidarity Movement. Ricordando la necessità di contestare questa finanziaria, Kerr aggiunge che bisogna guardare oltre e sottolineare il fatto che il capitalismo in quanto modo di organizzare la società è moralmente e politicamente bancarotta. Se vogliamo assicurarci che questa crisi finanziaria, e la miseria economica che ha portato a milioni di lavoratori e lavoratrici in tutto il mondo, sia l'ultima allora occorre organizzarci, non per cambiare gli amministratori del capitalismo bensì per rovesciare il sistema capitalista e sostituirlo con un sistema che mette i bisogni dei molti al di sopra dell'avidità dei pochi. ... read full story / add a comment

Radio, television and newspaper reports of the recent devastating floods in Pakistan are at last beginning to refer to the sheer scale of the problems faced by the victims. Figures for the number of people affected vary widely. According to the Irish Minister of State for Overseas Development Peter Power, reported in today’s (Tuesday) Irish Times, “the United Nations estimated that 40 million people had been left homeless; that eight million of those were in urgent need of immediate food and shelter; and that the combination of rising water and humidity had made a cholera epidemic a real danger”. RTE’s website says “Aid agencies are saying that the world does not fully understand the scale of the flooding disaster ….. One fifth of the country has been hit by severe flooding, with more than 20m people affected…..The UN believes up to 3.5m children are now at risk of contracting water-borne diseases….”. ... read full story / add a comment

The nurses’ work-to-rule and their threat to escalate the action next week has been met with an outraged onslaught by Mary Harney and Bertie Ahern. The sight of a group of workers standing up and demanding their rights has become so unusual that it seems as if the government cannot believe the temerity of the nurses in doing just that.
Nurses – through the Irish Nurses Organisation and the Psychiatric Nurses Association – have put forward two key demands
· A 10% pay increase to bring their pay back in line with other health workers
· The introduction of a 35-hour working week, again bringing their working hours in line with other health workers ... read full story / add a comment

La guerra di Israele su Gaza intendeva indebolire Hamas ma renderlo indipendente dall'Autorità in Cisgiordania. Un mese e mezzo è passato ed Israele non riesce a fermare il lancio di razzi di Hamas su Israele. Hamas ha chiesto ad alta voce la rimozione dell'assedio ed il primo ministro israeliano non ha avuto l'appoggio necessario dalla sua coalizione per il necessario compromesso. Per diminuire le perdite e per salvare la faccia Israele con il sostegno degli USA stanno ora delegando la questione a quel Consiglio di Sicurezza dell'ONU di cui Israele non si è curato per molti anni.

Public Tev-Dem meeting in Qamishli to discuss attacks by al-Nusra imageThe experiment of West Kurdistan (Syrian Kurdistan) has proved that people can make changes 16:21 Sun 24 Aug by Zaher Baher 0 comments

What you read below is the experience of my visit, for a couple of weeks in May this year, 2014, to North East of Syria or Syrian Kurdistan (West of Kurdistan) with a close friend of mine. Throughout the visit we had the total freedom and opportunity to see and speak to whoever we wanted to. This includes women, men, youth, and the political parties. There are over 20 parties from Kurdish to Christian, of which some are in the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) or Democratic Self Management (DSM) of the region of Al Jazera. Al Jazera is one of three regions, (cantons) of West Kurdistan. We also met the Kurdish and Christian political parties who are not in the DSA or DSM. In addition, we met the top people from the Democratic Self Administration (DSM), members of the different committees, local groups and communes as well as businesspeople, shopkeepers, workers, people in the market and people who were just walking in the street.

textPalestine-Israel, The war assault on Gaza failed to bring the expected results and even back fired* 14:09 Sun 24 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

The war Israel started with the Hamas was intended to keep it weaker but independent of the west bank authority. A month and a half and Israel cannot stop the Hamas firing of rockets on Israel. The Hamas raised its demand about the lifting of the siege (closer) and the Israeli prime minister failed go get the support of his coalition for the needed compromise. To diminish the losses and to save face Israel with US backing are passing the decision to the UN security council the Israeli ruling elite evaded successfully so many years. The mounting economic pressures create cracks in the Israeli ruling elite and even the populist coalition party head - the foreign minister, start to promote the end of the 1967 occupation. And the joint popular grass root struggle continue - within Israel at the Arkib Bedouins as focus, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Neby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills. [Italiano]

sorrymigrantx.jpg imageIreland - Migrant X refused an abortion and forced to have a C-section 22:31 Thu 21 Aug by Andrew 0 comments

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

A crise do Iraque já se arrasta há décadas. Tanto o regime Saddam Hussein tanto quanto sob a atual "democracia", desde a invasão de 2003, não há liberdade, justiça social, igualdade e há poucas perspectivas para aqueles que são independentes aos partidos políticos no poder. Além da brutalidade e discriminação contra as mulheres e as minorias, um grande abismo foi criado entre os ricos e os pobres, fazendo com que os pobres ficassem cada vez mais pobres e os ricos mais ricos.

Israele aveva iniziato il suo attacco a Gaza per sabotare il compromesso tra Hamas e l'Autorità Palestinese e per restaurare un governo indipendente di un indebolito Hamas sulla Striscia di Gaza. Il compromesso di Hamas doveva essere una risposta al blocco egiziano finalizzato a smantellare Hamas stesso. Il fallito attacco israeliano porterà ad una significativa apertura del confine tra Israele e la Striscia di Gaza laddove prima dell'attacco passa lo stretto necessario in una situazione sull'orlo di una catastrofe umanitaria.

Bruno Lima Rocha, 28 de agosto de 2014

No meio da corrida eleitoral de 1º turno, onde a 7ª economia do mundo vai decidir seu destino consultando a vontade e desinformação da 79ª sociedade mundial em índice de IDH, é preciso fazer uma série de reflexões. Para tal, precisamos ir além da denúncia do esvaziamento da democracia em sua versão liberal e indireta. Entendo que vivemos um problema estruturante, que tem relação direta com dois fenômenos. O primeiro passa pela individualização do cotidiano, com tarefas que se multiplicam e tempos esgotados. O capitalismo em sua era informacional não dá tempo hábil para a vida coletiva e menos ainda para as experiências políticas massivas. Quando isto ocorre, temos uma “crise”, como em junho de 2013. Saudável “crise” por sinal.

Bruno Lima Rocha*

En este texto compilo los análisis que publiqué en las redes sociales que a su vez son una compilación de entrevistas y participaciones en los medios comerciales brasileros que vengo realizando luego del anuncio del desastre aéreo y el consecuente fallecimiento de Eduardo Campos, ex gobernador del Estado de Pernambuco y candidato a presidente por el Partido Socialista Brasilero hasta el suceso que además hizo víctimas a su comitiva y a la tripulación de la aeronave. El accidente ocurrió en la ciudad de Santos, litoral del Estado de San Pablo el 13 de agosto de 2014. Nadie esperaba nada parecido. Su candidata a vicepresidente, Marina Silva es neopentecostal y ex ministra de Medio Ambiente de Lula. Dejó el gobierno en 2010 y en las elecciones presidenciales de ese año se enfrentó a Dilma Rousseff y alcanzó la tercera posición con más de veinte millones de votos. Ahora, como candidata a presidente del PSB, partido que era parte de la base del gobierno central hasta el fin de 2013, representa una preferencia de votos como alternativa al lulismo. Vale una observación con tono de autocrítica, nunca anticipamos un escenario con el abandono de algún candidato, ni menos a partir de un desastre como éste. Todo analista debería tener este escenario en cuenta, aunque con menores posibilidades.
