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

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.

textPalestina-Israele - conflitto senza fine tra il colonialismo sionista ed i palestinesi 17:56 Tue 22 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

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]

Col pretesto di prendersela con i "terroristi", o con "quelli che rifiutano la pace", i bombardamenti colpiscono in realtà la popolazione civile, bambini compresi, e servono a scoraggiare con il terrore ogni volontà di resistenza.

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”.

Decida lo que decida, lo importante es que Santos deje de exhibir un comportamiento esquizofrénico y asuma las consecuencias de sus acciones.

Al comenzar los conflictivos y rebeldes años ‘80, se inauguraba una segunda ola privatizadora, donde los Chicago Boys finalmente imponían su hegemonía política y su proyecto país al interior del bloque dominante dictatorial. 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.
