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

Al mediodía, en la aldea fronteriza de Suruc, en el Kurdistán Turco, una bomba destrozó los cuerpos de comunistas, socialistas y anarquistas que iban en camino a ayudar en la reconstrucción de Kobane. Decenas de personas fueron asesinadas, muchas otras quedaron heridas. Un militante de Black Rose estaba presente en las preparaciones de la campaña en apoyo a la reconstrucción de Kobane y Rojava, pero no fue alcanzado por la explosión.

Yesterday, nearly three hundred people set off from different cities, with the call of Federation of Socialist Youth Associations; in order to rebuilt Kobanê, which was tried to be looted by the ISIS. Today, arriving Suruç (Pîrsus), just before leaving for Kobane, these young people made a press release in front of the Amara Culture Center in Suruç (Pîrsus). At the end of the press release, a bomb exploding in the middle of the crowd, silenced many hearts which had been beating with the hope of reconstruction.

Ο λόγος δεν ήταν άλλος από την επιλογή του ίδιου να μην φορέσει τη στολή του στρατιώτη, να αρνηθεί το «αυτονόητο»: την πίστη στα «εθνικά ιδεώδη» και την υποταγή στο κράτος και στη στρατιωτική ιεραρχία. Η πραγματική αιτία όμως είναι η συνεχής στοχοποίησή του από τις αρχές, λόγω της δράσης του ως αναρχικού κοινωνικού αγωνιστή.

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]

Durante el lunes las fuerzas kurdas expulsaron al grupo armado Daesh de la ciudad de Kobane tras más de cuatro meses de combates por la localidad fronteriza. 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]

Ένας παραλογισμός και μια τρέλα συμπαρασύρει την περιοχή μας σε νέους βαλκανικούς πολέμους που μοναδική τους συνέπεια δεν θα είναι παρά η καταστροφή που ήδη έχει ξεκινήσει μέσω των οικονομικών μεταρρυθμίσεων που επιφέρουν φτώχεια, μετανάστευση και κοινωνική αθλιότητα, με την αδυναμία κάθε δυνατότητα συνεννόησης μεταξύ των χωρών, με την σύμπτυξη, μέσω του διαμελισμού των χωρών της «ΝΑ Ευρώπης» σε τοπικές χωροφυλακές και μπακάλικα της Δύσης. Η ατμόσφαιρα είναι καταθλιπτική αλλά δεν έχουμε άλλη δυνατότητα από το να βρεθούμε και να χτίσουμε μικρά γεφύρια που θα αποτρέψουν όσα δεινά μπορέσουν.

Las negociaciones de paz en La Habana (Cuba) entre las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombina-Ejército del Pueblo (FARC-EP) y el gobierno Nacional acaban de completar 3 años y medio. A pesar del extenso tiempo, las anarquistas no hemos dado el debate con la altura que se requiere y mucho menos hemos tenido una posición política respecto al futuro y presente del país y las luchas en las dinámicas de estas negociaciones, que mal que bien, afectan la correlación de fuerzas en la disputa de las oprimidas contra el régimen.

Qué tipo de acuerdo es el que salga de La Habana, qué tipo de paz se logre, incluso, cómo se logre, si se logra como fruto de un acuerdo entre dos partes en un país lejano, o como un acuerdo que se alcance también con la presión y la lucha de las grandes masas que tienen mil y una razones para protestar, todo esto importa. En esta lucha por la paz, el problema no es si la paz es neoliberal o con justicia social. El problema es que sin justicia social, puede ser que no haya guerrilla pero no habrá paz. Y seguirán muriendo los pobres: desplazados por la megaminería y la agroindustria, de física hambre como en la Guajira, bajo las balas de sicarios y paracos al servicio de poderosos intereses económicos, legales o ilegales. Esa paz neoliberal que se vislumbra en las metas del Plan de Desarrollo Nacional, santifica el enriquecimiento por despojo y llevaría a una sociedad francamente caníbal.

image¿Caguanazo a las FARC-EP? May 30 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 2 comments

¿Está Santos preparando su propio Caguanazo a las FARC-EP? Es una probabilidad bastante cierta. El ingenuo optimismo de los opinólogos de oficio, de izquierda o de derecha, que hasta hace poco declaraban que el proceso era irreversible o que el 2015 sería el “año de la paz”, se ha evidenciado como espurio. Es necesario entender el carácter de esta oligarquía, entender el sentido de la negociación y el hecho de que reposa sobre un equilibrio precario de fuerzas y no sobre sencillas voluntades, para poder superar el actual momento desde la lucha popular, mediante hechos concretos, no mediante súplicas a la rancia oligarquía[5]. Esa es realmente la única esperanza que tiene el sector popular en la actual coyuntura. Santos no es invencible, pero seguirá siéndolo mientras sea él quien define el terreno de lucha.

26 mayo, 2015

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.
