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.

More than 20,000 people demonstrated for electoral reforms across Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, on Saturday in a rare protest that was declared illegal by police. The protest was called for by opposition groups, including the Coalition for Free and Fair Elections, Bersih. Police fired tear-gas and water cannons at demonstrators and arrested more than 1,400 people, including top opposition leaders, according to protest organisers. The activists' demands include an overhaul of voter registration lists, tougher measures to curb fraud and fairer opportunities for opposition politicians to campaign in government-linked media.

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

Attraverso quello che i Kurdi chiamano Confederalismo Democratico, che ha una chiara dimensione libertaria, femminista ed ecologista, non si vuole creare un nuovo Stato, ma una rete di comunità che si autogovernano nel pieno rispetto di tutte le popolazioni che vivono o vogliono vivere nel territorio.

No one could predict that the joint camp in Masha 12 years ago of Israeli and Palestinian activists will ignite a wide movement of a joint non armed struggle which the Israeli occupying system will fail to extinguish. The thousands of activities and the tens of thousands of participates were not expected. Many small victories and the international B.D.S. warm the hearts of the not too many who persist in the joint struggle in spite of the mourning of those killed, empathy with the injured and solidarity with those arrested. The strong bond of partnership between the Palestinian activists and the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative was surprising. Disappointing but not surprising is the way the people of the Israeli anarchist scene refrained from adopting the initiative as the main recruiting mission. Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum are still holding high the banner.

El Estado colombiano ha tenido, históricamente, dos mecanismos principales para despojar al campesinado de sus tierras: el crédito extorsivo y la violencia, tanto oficial como paraoficial. Ahora, el gobierno capitaneado por Juan Manuel Santos ha agregado un nuevo mecanismo a este repertorio. Ese mecanismo es la utilización perversa de la legislación sobre las víctimas.

28 de agosto de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

"Há uma evidente confluência de ideias-guia entre os que defendem o impeachment nas ruas (os grupos neoliberais) e os políticos de tradição oligárquica no Congresso Nacional. É por isso que no atual momento o povo perde de todos os lados. Seja pela direita que é governo, com o tucano e Chicago Boy Joaquim Levy à frente da pasta do Ministério da Fazenda (o mais importante dos ministérios); seja pela Agenda Brasil e a “salvação” do governo implicando em abrir mão de quase tudo para manter o mandato; seja pela oposição política formal que sem nenhum pudor apresenta um projeto entreguista de exploração de petróleo como o do senador José Serra (PSDB-SP), e na ponta direita da política, o povo brasileiro corre sério risco se as ideias reacionárias expressas nas ruas de 16 de agosto se tornarem realidade em alguma proporção. Logo, há muito mais em jogo do que a continuidade institucional a qualquer custo", constata Bruno Lima Rocha, professor de ciência política e de relações internacionais.

Over the Last 12 months, particularly since Christmas the housing and homeless problem has deepened significantly. From last summer the amounts of families’ registering as homeless went from 264 to now, which are 531. The number of families that are registered as being in need of emergency accommodation is 792 adults with 1,112 dependent children. These statics were issued by the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive. This is a 100% rise within 12 months, but yet the state has not come out and said there is a crisis in housing.
