Le carnage perpétré au siège de Charlie Hebdo et le meurtre de clients juifs dans un supermarché casher ont suscité une vague d’émotion légitime que nous partageons. Mais la colère ou la peur sont toujours mauvaises conseillères et il faut maintenant s’interroger sur les répercussions politiques de cette tuerie et démêler les discours pour tenter d’y voir clair. read full story / add a comment

Noi siamo e saremo vicino ai compagni del CSA Dordoni per la difesa di uno spazio di aggregazione delle lotte sociali, vedi quelle della casa. Altre sono le sedi da chiudere, quelle degli intolleranti, razzisti e xenofobi, di chi aggredisce a sprangate i compagni e con qualche complicità ne esce sempre fuori. read full story / add a comment

Emilio viene colpito in faccia e alla testa da diverse sprangate, e cade al suolo privo di sensi.
I vigliacchi continuano a picchiarlo con calci in testa e sul viso, fino a quando i compagni riescono a sollevarlo e portarlo all'interno del centro sociale e a barricarsi dentro. read full story / add a comment

Si l’extrême droite est systématiquement productiviste et partisane de la croissance, elle peut teinter son discours d’un écologisme de façade, où la nature est vue comme un élément de l’identité nationale. Antihumanistes et malthusiennes, ces conceptions peuvent attirer quelques écologistes perdus, la vigilance est donc de mise. read full story / add a comment

Esprimiamo il nostro più profondo dolore e tutta la nostra rabbia per l'assassinio a sangue freddo dei disegnatori e dei giornalisti di Charlie Hebdo e di altre persone inermi da parte di terroristi che si richiamano a un dio crudele. CIB Unicobas e USB dell'Università di Bari, non permetteranno mai che il diritto alla libera espressione, e più semplicemente alla Libertà, sia minacciato dall’oscurantismo, dal misticismo e dall’autoritarismo di qualsiasi colore o padrone.

During the last 3 years in Greece, savage austerity imposed by the Troika (International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and European Commission) has crippled the country’s economy. The austerity has led to a depression that is as bad, if not worse, as the Great Depression was in the United States. Enjoying the atmosphere of anguish and despair associated with economic depression, Golden Dawn has flourished, espousing an ideology of hate. It is in effect a Fascist party that promotes anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant and misogynist chauvinism and has grown to become the third most popular political party in the country. read full story / add a comment

Invio per conoscenza (anche se, presumo, fuori tempo massimo). Premetto che il sottoscritto ha “frequentato” l'Irlanda (Derry e Belfast sostanzialmente, niente di turistico) in epoca non sospetta (anche nel 1981) e conosciuto sia alcune famiglie degli Hunger Strikers che molti compagni repubblicani (compagni, sottolineo). Con i fascisti poi ho il dente avvelenato. Tra il 1969 e il 1972 ho rischiato più di una volta (come tanti all'epoca) di finire al pronto soccorso per “mano fascista” (e anche nel 1981 a Padova, proprio mentre fotografavo scritte sull'Irlanda di Terza Posizione firmate con la runa “dente di lupo”)) e ho sfiorato un linciaggio da parte di una fazione falangista fuori dal tribunale di Madrid (1997) dove si processava la Mesa Nacional di Herri Batasuna (per non parlare del padre partigiano, Brigata “Silva”, del nonno - un“obbligato”, variante locale del bracciante - e dello zio -operaio e socialista - picchiati dai fascisti etc).

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution. read full story / add a comment

Va de mal a peor la situación de los derechos humanos en Colombia. En el primer semestre de este año fueron asesinadas 30 sindicalistas y personas que defienden los derechos humanos y la cosa podría ser peor sin los esquemas de protección que reciben algunas de las personas en riesgo.

In Israel, racism and extremism are exploding. It began shortly after the kidnapping of three Israeli boys—Naftali, Gilad and Eyal—in Gush Etzion, that led to the assault in Gaza which has seen over 1,000 killed. A Facebook page calling for the murder of Palestinians went viral. In one photo, a soldier posed broodingly with his gun, the word "vengeance" written on his chest. In another two teenage girls smiled happily with a banner that read: “Hating Arabs is not racism, it’s values.” read full story / add a comment

La oligarquía ha convertido a Colombia en una feria de baratijas, en un mercado como el que montaban los gitanos de Macondo. Ahí todo se lleva barato: el oro, el petróleo, el café, la vida. Hasta la paz la andan ofreciendo barata, a cambio de nada, como un espejito de esos que traían los conquistadores. En medio de esa feria de baratijas, Santos se roba el show como el gran encantador de serpientes. read full story / add a comment

1980 darbesinden bu yana, bu topraklardaki devlet varlığının kaçınılmaz bir siyasi gerçeği olan darbe, 36 yıl sonra 15 Temmuz’unu 16’sına bağlayan gece vuku buldu. İstanbul ve Ankara merkezli gerçekleşen askeri hareketlilikte pek çok devlet binası bir süreliğine bloke edildi. Ankara’da savaş uçaklarının havalanması ve İstanbul’da köprülerin askerler tarafından trafiğe kapatılmasıyla başlayan darbe, Genelkurmay Başkanı’nın rehin alınması, sokaklarda tank ve silah seslerinin yükselmesiyle devam etti. MİT Müsteşarlığı binasından TBMM’ye birçok devlet binası F16’lar ve helikopterlerle vuruldu; pek çok yerde asker ve polis arasında silahlı çatışmalar yaşandı. Bu gelişmeleri izleyen süreçte devlet televizyonunun yayını kesilerek canlı yayında “Yurtta Sulh Konseyi” imzası taşıyan darbe bildirisi okundu. “5 saatlik darbe” sona erdiğinde yüz üzerinde asker, 80 üzerinde polis ve 80 üzerinde darbe karşıtı protestocu öldü. Aralarında çok sayıda yüksek rütbeli komutanın bulunduğu 2839 asker gözaltına alındı.

The coup, which has been an inevitable reality of the state presence in this geography since the military coup of 1980, arose after 36 years, on the night of July 15. Many state buildings were blocked for a few hours during the military mobilisation based in Istanbul and Ankara. The coup started with flypast of fighter jets in Ankara and blocking of bridges in Istanbul by soldiers, and continued with taking hostage of chief of general staff and tank noise and gun shots in the streets. Many state buildings were shot by F16s and helicopters including the parliament building and the headquarters of National Intelligence Organisation; There were clash of arms in many places between soldiers and police. Following the events, national state television broadcast was cut and the coup declaration signed 'Peace at Home Council'' was read. When the ''5 Hour Coup'' ended, more than one hundred soldiers, more than eighty police officers and more than eighty anti-coup protesters died. 2839 soldiers, among them many high ranked ones, were taken into custody.

The umbrella organisation of the Kurdish movement, the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council Co-Presidency, has released a statement about last night's coup attempt in Turkey.

The statement said; “There has been a coup attempt by persons whose identity and purpose is yet not clear. This attempt comes just before the military council meeting, where Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was reportedly going to assign generals close to himself to the army's top tier. Another striking dimension of the coup attempt is that it comes at a time when discussions about the fascist AKP government's foreign policy, were taking place.”

La escandalosa escala de la purga no se condice con la realidad de un golpe improvisado y con escaso apoyo, sino que responde a la existencia de un plan prefabricado para comenzar una reingeniería profunda del Estado turco, que refleje las nuevas hegemonías, que lo aleje del modelo secular en que se fundó la república en la década de 1920 y lo acerque al modelo del neo-sultanato defendida por el sector islamista político del bloque dominante.

La tentative de coup d'État, mal ficelée et ratée, a été décrite par le président turc Erdoğan "comme un don de Dieu". Certains sont mêmes allés jusqu'à dire que le président turc avait finalement eu son "incendie du Reichstag", qu'il va utiliser comme un prétexte parfait pour continuer à imposer son projet autoritaire et réduire au silence les voix critiques dans le pays comme à l'étranger.

Hay quienes han dicho que el presidente turco por fin ha tenido su propio “incendio del Reichstag”, el cual utilizará como la excusa perfecta para seguir imponiendo su proyecto autoritario y silenciar las voces críticas tanto en lo doméstico como en el exterior.Erdoğan hoy se cree invencible, pero su victoria es pírrica –su barco está en franco naufragio, y esta intentona golpista fue solamente un síntoma más de esa crisis.
