Riot police deploy in Manchester

The police killing of Mark Duggan resulted in four nights of rioting across England. The immediate trigger was the killing itself, and the disrespect shown by the police to Mark’s family and friends. But the riots rapidly broadened to expressions of a more general anger and alienation; an anger that was all too often unfocused and striking out at the nearest target of opportunity. This resulted in widespread destruction of resources in already deprived neighborhoods and some anti-social attacks on bystanders. Despite this, the roots of the riots lie in the economic and political conditions of these districts, and not in ‘poor parenting’ or ‘mindless criminality’. These conditions were created by the very politicians and business elite who now call for a return to normality and repression.

The riots happened at a particular moment, a moment when capitalism is in deep crisis. Indeed the riots occurred at the same time as yet another crash in global markets. The two competed with each other to be the lead story on the news. This is not a coincidence; the crash, and the cuts unleashed to impose it’s costs on ordinary people, mean not only rocketing unemployment but also the slashing of public services. And while the focus is on the estimated £200 million of destruction caused by the rioting, this pales into insignificance in comparison with the huge destruction of wealth taking place on the stock exchanges.

Una mirada libertaria desde el Perú sobre el proceso y probable extradición- encarcelamiento del dictador y criminal Alberto Fujimori -Chinochet-, responsable de graves violaciones a DDHH, de corrupción y de ataques a las condiciones de vida de la clase trabajadora peruana durante su régimen (1990-2000).


"El pueblo que no olvida ni perdona, aún sigue en pie de lucha y siempre lo estará mientras un tipo como él que justificándose en la lucha contra la subversión ( o "terrorismo", que es como le place llamar al descontento popular, al poder) creo y fortaleció grupos de aniquilamiento de las "fuerzas del orden" que con la mas cínica impunidad que sólo el poder reaccionario puede dar, mataron en nombre de la "pacificación" del país, del "progreso" y de la democracia (dictadura de la burguesía). Estos fueron y son los horrores de un gobierno que se dice democrático. Estos son los derechos humanos violados, dinamitados, desaparecidos por las fuerzas armadas, policiales y grupos paramilitares de la dictadura encubierta de Alberto Fujimori."

The term 'community policing' has been much abused in recent times, most particularly in the North of Ireland where it has become shorthand for vicious punishment beatings and shootings. The question of what levels of real community policing would actually be possible or allowed under capitalism is looked at, and the debate about crime, anti-social behaviour and reactions to it in an anarchist society is touched on.
