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

Το κεφάλαιο θέλει να μοιράσει μια νέα ψευδή ταυτότητα, αυτή του καταναλωτή για τον ελεύθερο χρόνο του εργαζόμενου. Και με αυτήν να τον στρέψει εναντίον του εαυτού του. Ο κόσμος του αγώνα στέκεται απέναντι σε αυτή την προπαγανδιστική μηχανή.

Αυτές οι μεταρρυθμίσεις είναι κομμάτι της ριζικής αναμόρφωσης του εκπαιδευτικού συστήματος που επιχειρείται την τελευταία δεκαετία στο Μεξικό και στόχο έχει την κατάργηση του δημόσιου χαρακτήρα της εκπαίδευσης.

severas.jpg image[Colombia] Manifiesto Marika 10:37 Tue 21 Jun by Colectiva Severas Flores 0 comments

Somos la Colectiva Severas Flores. Somos colectiva como grupo de personas, no como masa uniforme, sino como conjunto heterogéneo, como multiplicidad de cuerpos, existencias, sentires y luchas que se atreven al encuentro; y somos colectiva en la medida que resistimos al lenguaje patriarcal desde el ejercicio de denuncia de la masculinización de las lenguas, desde el reconocernos como palabras y espacios en disputa, construcción y deconstrucción.

Somos libertaria porque asociamos lo libertario con la tradición anarquista de la eliminación de todas las formas de opresión; entendemos lo libertario como la posición que lucha por la libertad de “ser” con otres, de existir en colectivo, de destruir todas las formas autoritarias en que se intenta encapsular el poder.

Somos severas flores porque nos re-apropiamos de una burla, de un chiste, de un insulto, de una violencia naturalizada, solapada, que esconde un profundo sexismo hacia cuerpos considerados masculinos al proponerlos débiles, femeninos, errados, insuficientes. Somos flores, flores tan fuertes como delicadas. Somos severas al pararnos duro, echar raíces contra la explotación y resistir siendo nosotres mismes. Entendemos la feminidad no como sinónimo de debilidad o pasividad sino como uno de tantos colores que nos componen y que la monocromía patriarcal quiere negar. Las flores crecen a pesar de todo, son el esfuerzo constante de una planta para sacar semilla, contienen los órganos sexuales de ellas y son parte del equilibrio natural interespecie. Al mismo tiempo las flores transitan, son efímeras; tan efímeras como nuestras vidas y burlan el dogma, la rigidez y el control que se quiere imponer en nuestras formas de verlas, pues están sujetas al cambio, a la mutación. Las flores rompen el sistema de prejuicios, negando lo binario y proponiendo lo múltiple, dado que muchas son hermafroditas, diversas, subversivas: No sólo son “bellas”, hay flores horribles que se cagan en los cánones de belleza racistas y occidentales; no todas huelen “bien”, algunas apestan a rebeldía y sueños de libertad; no todas son débiles, algunas matan, incomodan e irritan si no se les respeta.

He died 'with his boots on' - he seemed to have risen from a chair, with an open book and a glass of something interesting on the table, collapsed onto the floor and was found a day or two later.

26 de junio 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

En este primero artículo de la serie de la nueva-derecha, desarrollo la idea, de cómo el censo común fue siendo colonizado por ideas reaccionarias, que terminan siendo un modo reactivar las tímida políticas, de reconocimiento promovidas por el gobierno temporalmente alejado y el pacto *lulista iniciado en 2003. El rastro de este reaccionarismo social y de penetración en la cultura y en la religión, es un espectáculo dantescos de misoginia, de homofobia y uno rechazo “medieval” a los avances obtenidos dentro de la Constitución Federal de 1988.

textMaking sense of the Brexit tide of reaction and the reality of the racist vote Jun 28 by Andrew 1 comments

The Leave / Brexit vote in the referendum came in the end as a surprise, a narrow win for Remain was expected. This may be because the core Leave vote was in the run-down white working class communities of the now desolate English and Welsh industrial zones. A population trapped in conditions of long-term unemployment and poverty who no one really pays much attention to anymore. Some on the left have seized on the makeup of this core vote to suggest that there was some progressive element to the Brexit vote despite the campaign being led by racist hatemongers and wealthy US-oriented neoliberals. Mostly that’s a mixture of wishful thinking and post hoc justification for having called for a Leave vote in the first place, but it is true that a section of the working class, C2DEs in marketing speak, voted to Leave in close to a 2:1 ratio. Is the class composition of that vote enough to automatically make it progressive regardless of content? And what does it tell us that a section of the radical left seems to think the answer to that question is yes, that it is enough to be anti-establishment?
