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.

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.

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

Instead of glorifying the military prowess of the Anzacs, we should be building the working class movement which can sweep away all capitalist States. We need a revolution that will establish libertarian communism, a world of liberty, equality and solidarity, where war and militarism exist no more, except as exhibits in museums and lessons from history.

loisurlerenseignementopposant.jpeg imageLoi sur le renseignement : halte au pilonnage de nos libertés individuelles et collectives 13:20 Tue 21 Apr by Relations Extérieures de la CGA 0 comments

Le projet de loi sur le renseignement dévoilé en mars par le gouvernement vient s'inscrire dans la continuité des lois sécuritaires dont s'arme l’État pour affermir son pouvoir, quelles que soient les tendances politiques des gouvernant-e-s.

Cette loi, en gestation depuis presque un an, fait suite à celle « contre le terrorisme » promulguée en novembre 2014, dont nous avions déjà dénoncé le caractère liberticide et hautement répressif. Le gouvernement s'appuie maintenant sur la pseudo union nationale post-attentats de Paris pour renforcer son discours « antiterroriste », faire valoir la légitimité de cette loi liberticide au nom de la « sécurité », et décider de la faire voter en procédure accélérée.

Alors que chacune des nouvelles mesures économiques (ANI, Pacte de responsabilité, loi sur les retraites, loi Macron, etc.) accentue la casse sociale, détériore nos conditions de travail et de vie, et nous appauvrit un peu plus au profit des classes dominantes que sont les actionnaires et le patronat, l’État durcit et élargit son arsenal législatif, afin d'organiser le contrôle et la surveillance généralisée de la population.

Vogliono far credere alle gente di essere nient'altro che “semplici australiani” i quali sono preoccupati dell'"islam radicale". Quello che NON vi dicono è che sono solo dei fascisti – di estrema destra, dei razzisti innamorati di Hitler i quali si avvolgono tatticamente nella bandiera australiana. [English]

El modelo minero energético en el que somos arrastrados por las potencias históricas (Estados Unidos y Europa) y las emergentes (China, Brasil, Rusia, India y Sudáfrica) altamente consumidoras de energías fósiles y minerales lleva a la funcionalización de nuestros territorios y vidas a la ley de la oferta y la demanda, donde se privatizan las ganancias y se socializan los impactos. Frente a este panorama adverso, es fundamental que las comunidades continuemos pensándonos y construyendo horizontes de posibilidad de formas autonómicas de vida. es necesario que dejemos de proyectar esfuerzos en continuar en la senda del desarrollo y el crecimiento capitalista, pues, ya sabemos que solo beneficia a unos pocos que continúan engordándose mientras los muchos pasamos necesidades para conseguir comida, dormida y ni que decir si luchamos por vida digna.

Bruno Lima Rocha – 24 de abril de 2015

A 4ª feira 22 de abril iniciou com um leve tom de confiança por parte dos sindicalistas vinculados a CUT e CTB (governistas) e mesmo os representantes da CSP Conlutas e da Intersindical (à esquerda do governo). Como afirmei em textos anteriores, após anos de peleguice e da triste sina de ir a reboque de um governo de centro direita parece que as energias restantes do sindicalismo brasileiro ao menos conseguem ser suficientes para defender direitos adquiridos. O PL 4330 seria a pior derrota desde o golpe de 1964 e deveria ser derrotado. Se este retrocesso fosse interrompido será possível brecar a agenda conservadora do Blocão que também é "base" do governo. Não foi desta vez.

En lo poco que va del 2015 en Colombia, según la defensoría del pueblo, se han registrado, en todo el territorio dominado por el estado colombiano, un poco más de 283 movilizaciones. Plantones, concentraciones, marchas, bloqueos de vías, enfrentamientos directos con las fuerzas de seguridad, cese de actividades, han sido algunas de las expresiones de inconformidad de diversos sectores de la sociedad. Las acciones colectivas o de protesta de las comunidades organizadas han llamado la atención sobre temas tan diversos como la educación, la salud, el trabajo, la defensa del territorio, entre otros. Las respuestas del estado a las demandas de la comunidad no se han salido del libreto: dilación, represión y terror.
