How can we understand the American presence in Costa Rica? The USA is in fact in the process of militarizing the whole Caribbean area, something which is crucial to the process of rebuilding America's dog-eared hegemony in Latin America. Indeed, this has been one of the key policy objectives of the Obama administration.On 1st July, the parliament of Costa Rica approved a US request for permission to station between 7,000 and 13,000 US troops (the precise number is still uncertain) on its territory. The troops will arrive in 46 warships. This request, backed by Laura Chinchilla's government and the parties who support her, would be covered under the Security Section of the Free Trade Agreement between Costa Rica and the USA which was signed despite significant popular resistance after a rigged referendum in 2007. The excuse being given to justify this extraordinary presence of US troops is the fight against drug trafficking, a sort of catch-all expression normally used throughout the region to justify any outrage against the local population or any interference that Washington feels the need to indulge in. But is drugs really the issue at stake?
To the best of our knowledge, no comprehensive documentary about anarchism has ever been made. This is a project to create a documentary which is as much a basic introduction to anarchism, as well as a story which looks at anarchism historically and globally.
The FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup must be exposed for the utter sham that it is. The ZACF strongly condemns the audacity and hypocrisy of the government in presenting the occasion as a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for the economic and social upliftment of those living in South Africa (and the rest of the continent).What is glaringly clear is that the “opportunity” is and continues to be that of a feeding-frenzy for global and domestic capital and the South African ruling elite. In fact, if anything, the event is more likely to have devastating consequences for South Africa’s poor and working class – a process that is already underway.

Following the murderous attack by the Israeli Defence Forces on the civilian convoy carrying humanitarian aid to the beseiged Gaza Strip, an Israeli anarchist writes from Tel Aviv on the reactions to the attacks by the Israeli left."We knew it would not be nice, but we could not guess how brutal and mindless it would be. We had planned and prepared during the weeks and when the time was known,- we prepared for reciprocal actions. The surprise and the shock we experienced when got the news on the piracy on the high sea of Israel - in international waters - about 150 kilometers from the shore of Gaza, cannot be described."

The following is an interview on the Greek crisis with Constantinos Avramidis – a Greek resident in Ireland, member of the Workers Solidarity Movement and of the post workers union."We don’t know how situation will progress. We lack many things to make the situation progress, but the worst scenario will be that the military takes over. That may mean that Greece would be expelled from the EU in the worst possible way. And this way the IMF could impose their will through a dictator as the US has done in the past. That’s the worst case scenario.
I have the feeling that the army has no will to intervene, there is a broader political spectre within the army now that would make such a decision difficult. Otherwise, I don’t see how the capitalists will impose the reforms. The people have had enough."
