Around the time of the visit of Shell’s pipe-laying ship the Solitaire in June, it became clear that the Gardai had been told that they could do anything to remove Shell to Sea campaigners from the scene and they would be looked after. Rulings from the District Court, in particular the denial of bail to 7 campaigners charged with the most minor of public order offences, removed people with vital water skills from the area by interning them in Mountjoy and Castlerea prisons. Local fisherman Pat O’Donnell had one of his boats sunk from under him when four masked men boarded the boat in the middle of the night and held Pat and the other crew member at gunpoint while they sabotaged the boat, leading to its sinking. When Pat took to sea in another boat as the Solitaire arrived, he was arrested under the Public Order Act for loitering and once more sent to prison, leaving the way clear for the Solitaire. read full story / add a comment

Over 50 Shell to Sea campaigners gathered at the Shell head quarters in Leeson street Dublin Tuesday evening to protest at the jailing of 52 year old Erris fisherman Pat O'Donnell for resisting Shell's experimental gas pipeline. Pat received a seven month sentence which has the added benefit for Shell of taking his boat off of Broadhaven Bay for the period they need to carry out major underwater construction work and repairs. Pat has twice previously been arrested and held without charge when Shell has needed to carry out work in the bay. read full story / add a comment

La crescente pressione operata dalla campagna B.D.S. non solo preoccupa la classe dirigente israeliana, ma ne ha già provocato una spaccatura. Che si era manifestata nelle dimissioni del governo di Netaniahu e nell'indizione di nuove elezioni. L'esito è stato persino peggiore per lui. Ha perso la maggioranza all'interno della destra. Il suo 61% (contro il 59%) è stato ottenuto solo coalizzandosi con il centro-destra di Kakhlon che aveva già bloccato le mosse della destra tradizionale e di alcune tendenze di neoliberismo radicale. Un nuovo equilibrio di potere all'interno della classe dirigente israeliana potrebbe portare nel futuro immediato ad una coalizione con il partito di pseudo-sinistra della lista sionista o addirittura ad una diversa coalizione senza Netaniahu o persino senza il partito Licud. In questo contesto proseguono gli sgomberi di palestinesi - sia in Israele che in Cisgiordania. [English]

The election which was a response to rebellion in the elite - threatening to restrict his daily newspaper - resulted in a partial defeat. He is dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he is trying desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threatens to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague Court. The French initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the West Bank is an effort to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non-armed struggle the struggle continues. The very optimistic activists already feel the approaching victory.

Este 1 de mayo, el Grupo Estudiantil Anarquista, junto con algunos procesos barriales, salió a las calles a conmemorar el día de la clase trabajadora. Ondeando nuestras banderas rojinegras y gritando consignas en contra del Estado opresor y el capital explotador, las mentes libertarias que se resisten al olvido y que siguen luchando por la creación de mundos nuevos antiautoritarios nos congregamos en el sur de la ciudad para manifestar nuestra inconformidad frente a este sistema injusto y desigual que sigue viviendo de la expropiación, el expolio y el pillaje.

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places. [Italiano]

With the conviction that our main contribution is not so much in changes on the ground but in the spirit of the struggle of the participants and the fulcrum we provide to the international lever. The gradual increase in international pressure which the Israeli high court verdict is that is a criminal act for Israeli to promote causing already much of damages in the economy of occupation and concern of the Zionist-colonialist Israeli ruling Elite. We see here again how small number of activists can initiate a turn in the course of history when it is applied in the ripe cross-road. It started in a small joint camp in Masha 2003 for struggle against the separation fence, after the idea raised half a year earlier in the European People Global Action conference in Leiden - in which activists from the East of the Mediterranean region participated too. The camp initiated struggles in various villages that riped at 2005 in the Bil'in struggle... which expanded and expanded...

The frustrated Israeli state force who do not dare to prevent the weekly non armed popular demonstrations - Joined and purely of Palestinians, resort to shooting on demonstrators with frequent use of live fire by snippers. In the annexed regions of Jerusalem they no more pretend it is not an occupied area and apply there the occupation procedures - both in treatment of detaining children and houses demolition. The "hot" areas of the popular non armed struggle gradually expand but still far away from a general uprising. The international popular struggle worry the Israeli elite but the damages to the Israeli economy is still in the margins. It seems the Zionist settler colonialist elite which bribed the tycoons section of the capitalist elite with extreme neo liberal measures cannot do it any more as other sections of the capitalist elite (backers of Cakhlon) rebelled.

La saldatura tra le classi dirigenti sioniste e capitaliste che era iniziata nel 1948, è controllata dal 2010 dai magnati dell'economia. Quel neoliberismo "così vincente" è stato sfidato dalla lotta sociale, dai conflitti all'interno della stessa classe dirigente capitalista e minacciato dalla pressione internazionale che mina il potere calante del vecchio ordine da quando la destra ha perso la maggioranza assoluta nel parlamento a causa ora dell'opposizione sionista più moderata (Kachlon). Non è certo quanto velocemente l'arretramento della corrente neoliberista insieme alla sconfitta dei magnati e combinata con la pressione internazionale porteranno ad un arretramento anche del progetto di espansione sionista che espelle i Palestinesi.

La pur minima pressione delle potenze imperialiste su Israele affinché attenui la sua morsa sui Palestinesi delle aree occupate nel 1967 sta dando i suoi risultati (più in Cisgiordania che nel ghetto di Gaza). Infatti Israele sta dando lavoro ai circa 100.000 Palestinesi dei territori occupati. La maggior parte dei posti di blocco sono stati rimossi. La rivolta dei Palestinesi in Cisgiordania prosegue solo grazie ai canali di una piccola minoranza di attivisti che tengono vive lotte sia unitarie che separate durante il weekend. [English]

imageClass Struggle, ‘Xenophobia’ and the Local Elite May 21 by Jonathan Payn 0 comments

The xenophobic violence and looting following King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners “pack their bags and leave” spread to cities and townships across the country. However, the recent attacks are not an isolated incident; nor is Zwelithini solely responsible for fomenting it. Local elites – particularly those linked to the ruling party – also encourage anti-immigrant attitudes and actions. This article, based on discussions with Abahlali baseFreedom Park activists, looks at how local elites stimulate ‘xenophobia’ to protect their class interests, as well as how progressive working class activists have responded.

Το καθήκον των επαναστατών και στην «ειρήνη» και στον πόλεμο είναι να βοηθήσουν τις μάζες να πάρουν συνείδηση του σκοπού και των μέσων του κινήματός τους, να αποδεσμευτούν από την κηδεμονία της κομματικής και συνδικαλιστικής γραφειοκρατίας, να πάρουν οι ίδιες την υπόθεσή τους στα χέρια τους, να μην εμπιστεύονται άλλη «ηγεσία» έξω από τα δικά τους εκτελεστικά όργανα που τα εκλέγουν και τα ανακαλούν οι ίδιες οποτεδήποτε, να αποκτήσουν οι ίδιες το αίσθημα της πολιτικής ευθύνης και προ παντός και πάνω απ’ όλα να χειραφετηθούν πνευματικά από την εθνική και πατριωτική μυθολογία.

Η εθνική Βραζιλίας δέχεται ταπεινωτική ήττα με 7-1 από τη Γερμανία. Οπαδοί της Σελεσάο κατεβαίνουν στους δρόμους, συγκρούονται με τις δυνάμεις καταστολής, τραυματίζουν έναν έφιππο αστυνομικό, λεηλατούν μαγαζιά και σουπερμάρκετ, πυρπολούν λεωφορεία και καίνε τη βραζιλιάνικη σημαία. Η μιντιακή διαχείριση των γεγονότων για ακόμα μια φορά τείνει προς την αβλαβή ερμηνεία των ταραχών: για όλα φταίει η απογοήτευση απ’ τη συντριπτική ήττα. Οι εικόνες των συγκρούσεων και των καταστροφών, όμως, δεν είναι η εξαίρεση για τη Βραζιλία.

30 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

Abertura – Na semana de 1º de maio de 2015, vivemos um momento ímpar. A classe trabalhadora pode estar diante da pior derrota na história recente do país desde a traição de João Goulart (quando este optou por não resistir) quando do golpe de 1º de abril de 1964. O absurdo é estarmos vivendo esta circunstância em função de um governo frágil, que fez campanha por esquerda (em especial no 2º turno), ganhou raspando – acertadamente polarizando o país – e já entregara quase tudo ainda no ano de 2014. A conjuntura é tensa porque esta mudança vinda do Projeto Lei 4330 na prática altera – e para o bem da acumulação dos patrões e empregadores, além de rentistas que se beneficiam dos recursos coletivos da União – a estrutura das relações de trabalho no Brasil. Logo, quando uma conjuntura pode influir de modo estrutural e desestruturante, esta se torna estratégica. Eis a arena onde as maiorias brasileiras hoje se encontram.
