Washington, D.C.- Two years after Haiti’s devastating earthquake, the dire conditions in which a majority of Haitians live have failed to improve and in many cases have deteriorated, due to a consistent lack of progress in the relief and reconstruction efforts and the ongoing cholera epidemic, Center for Economic and Policy Research Co-Director Mark Weisbrot said today. Weisbrot noted that a general lack of accountability of international agencies and aid organizations has hindered efforts by Haitians to obtain justice and a better standard of living, particularly for those who lost their homes during the earthquake. read full story / add a comment

U.S. diplomatic cables now released from Wikileaks make it clearer than ever before that foreign troops occupying Haiti for more than seven years have no legitimate reason to be there; that this a U.S. occupation, as much as in Iraq or Afghanistan; that it is part of a decades-long U.S. strategy to deny Haitians the right to democracy and self-determination; and that the Latin American governments supplying troops – including Brazil – are getting tired of participating. read full story / add a comment

Haiti's first democratically elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, is scheduled to return to his homeland this week after seven years in exile in South Africa. He was overthrown – for the second time – in a 2004 coup organised by the United States and its allies. Washington has gone to great lengths to prevent his return over the last seven years, and this week the state department once again warned that Aristide should not return until "after the [20 March] electoral process is concluded." read full story / add a comment

Instead of glorifying the military prowess of the Anzacs, we should be building the working class movement which can sweep away all capitalist States. We need a revolution that will establish libertarian communism, a world of liberty, equality and solidarity, where war and militarism exist no more, except as exhibits in museums and lessons from history.

Oggi, le bande criminali che gli Stati avevano creato per i loro interessi si stanno ritirando da Kobanê lasciandosi alle spalle le rovine che hanno provocato. Mentre l'eco della vittoria della resistenza sale per le vie di Kobanê, si rafforza la convinzione della libertà al di sopra delle stesse rovine. Come ebbe a dire il compagno Durruti:"Non abbiamo paura delle rovine". Oggi e domani, a Kobanê ed in molti altri posti, sappiamo che una nuova vita nascerà tra quelle stesse rovine. [English]

La victoria se celebró tanto en Kobane como en otras partes del mundo, sin embargo, EEUU señaló al mismo tiempo que la disputa de la ciudad continua.

Today, the gangs that the states created for their interests are running away though the ruins they are leaving behind in Kobanê. While the victory of resistance is echoing in the free streets of Kobanê, the

conviction of freedom is rising above the same ruins in the streets. Like comrade Durutti says, "We are not in the least afraid of ruins". Today and tomorrow, in Kobanê and many other places, we know that a new life is being created among the ruins. [Italiano]

Depuis quelques années, le mouvement kurde se rapproche des idées libertaires. Même s'il ne s'agit pas d'un mouvement anarchiste, ce changement montre que les idées anarchistes de liberté et d'égalité par la solidarité, nos idées d'horizontalité et de démocratie directe radicale contre l'etat sont valides et fortes, mais également nécessaires pour en finir avec l'héritage autoritaire de la gauche dans les mouvements sociaux. Exprimer notre solidarité avec rojava et le mouvement kurde est de notre responsabilité, parce qu'ils représentent l'espoir dans cette région et parce qu'il s'agit d'une lutte des opprimé-e-s contre les oppresseurs. Les vraies luttes ne sont jamais parfaites mais elles amènent à différentes potentialités de construction d'une société libre. Tout en exprimant notre solidarité avec le mouvement révolutionnaire au rojava, nous comprenons aussi que notre rôle est de continuer à développer les principes centraux de nos idées pour les partager avec les révolutionnaires du monde entier. - Groupe éditorial anarkismo.net [español] [English]

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

La ciudad de Mahabad es conocida como la capital del Kurdistán iraní, y hoy opera como el epicentro, de la rebelión popular de los kurdos contra la autoridad chiita de Teherán. Durante un corto tiempo de duración, de la república del Kurdistán, que existió en 1946 bajo apoyo de la antigua Unión soviética, esta ciudad dio el nombre a un estado embrionario, cuyos líderes fueron fusilados por el régimen del Shah apoyado por los ingleses. Después de la Revolución Islámica de 1979, la situación de los kurdos del leíste no mejoró en la Región.

20 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

A cidade de Mahabad é conhecida como a capital do Curdistão iraniano, e hoje opera como o epicentro da rebelião popular dos curdos contra a autoridade xiita de Teerã. O Curdistão Leste (Rojhelat) viveu um momento de rebelião após o dia 7 de maio quando uma jovem curda se atirou do 4º andar de um hotel cinco estrelas onde trabalhava como camareira. O motivo do suicídio de Farinaz Xorowanî foi um ato de rebeldia contra agentes da inteligência iraniana (Itlaat) que, ao alegar querer interroga-la tentaram forçar um estupro. O sacrifício da trabalhadora resultou em rebelião franca e aberta, com as tropas anti-distúrbios da província e forças regulares da Guarda Revolucionária do Irã (Pasdaran) usando munição letal no meio da rua. Tal episódio, ao contrário de ser uma raridade, é a norma de convivência entre o regime dos Aiatolás e a esquerda curda. Nos dias posteriores, a polícia política dos aiatolás prendeu mais de 800 militantes sociais curdos, o que certamente irá aumentar a estatística regular de assassinados pelo Estado; cerca de cem ativistas por ano são enforcados pelas leis do fundamentalismo xiita.

imageBajo Cuembí, Putumayo: un ejemplo a seguir en la lucha por el cese al fuego bilateral May 13 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 1 comments

Mientras el gobierno se niega tercamente a cualquier medida bilateral para desescalar el conflicto, la posición adoptada por los campesinos del Bajo Cuembí es un ejemplo a seguir. Este ejemplo demuestra que, más allá de seguir suplicando un cese al fuego bilateral a un gobierno autista, que no demuestra la menor preocupación por las mayorías empobrecidas del país pero que se desvela por satisfacer a la minoría de los súper-ricos, se pueden tomar acciones concretas, de carácter directo, para avanzar en la desmilitarización de los territorios.

1 May 2015

In this essay, I start to debate and contest the political theory produced to classify all parties, and in extension, all political organizations, inside an umbrella that models political participation inside indirect democracy in a liberal approach. Before going deeper into criticism, I will highlight some aspects. This article is not intended to enter the specific debate about the theories of political parties, but to contest the essential part of the hegemonic approach for political organizations definitions. We argued against the Marxist and Marxist-Leninist tradition in the two first essays. In this one and the next, we will argue against the theory produced to reinforce the powers that are political models in Western societies. Besides struggling against hegemonic definitions, I must recognize that political science has discussed this subject extensively, and that the object of analysis – the political party – is a unit of essential structural analysis for the area, and that there is a large (and boring) literature about it.

A partir del primero de abril la Autoridad Nacional Palestina (ANP) pasó a ser miembro pleno de la Corte Internacional de Justicia de la ONU, el Tribunal de La Haya. Aunque no haya poder coercitivo, la corte de La Haya refuerza tanto el frente diplomático como la guerra de propaganda por la constitución de un Estado Palestino. La participación de la ANP es parte del derecho internacional refuerza la legalidad, al reconocimiento de hecho de este Estado inicial.
