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

Hoy lloramos la pérdida de amigos y compañeros y renovamos nuestro compromiso con una lucha revolucionaria internacional en su memoria. 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.

Στις 15.07.14, ο σύντροφος Θ. Χατζηαγγέλου συλλαμβάνεται από κουκουλοφόρους της αντιτρομοκρατικής. 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]

28 de agosto de 2015

Después del inicio de la guerra civil de la Siria, nos llama atención, que el Sistema Internacional, admite la posible construcción de una sociedad de base igualitaria en la región con más conflictos del planeta. En la región oeste del Kurdistán (Rojava) y al sur dono Curdistán iraquí, la izquierda curda está implantando un sistema social cooperativo, democrático y no sectario. Los enemigos de este proyecto son muchos, considerando una encrucijada de posibilidades y desafíos políticos y militares.

imageA encruzilhada do Curdistão socialista Aug 21 by BrunoL 0 comments

Introdução

O advento da primavera árabe e a rebelião sunita contra o governo Assad na Síria oportunizou o exercício de soberania da população curda residindo dentro dos limites deste Estado falido. Em novembro de 2013, isto se concretizou no estabelecimento dos três cantões de Rojava (oeste em curdo), Efrin, Kobane e Cyzire, implicando na construção de uma sociedade de tipo socialista, democrática e feminista. As instâncias de poder são de acesso coletivo, os cargos executivos rotativos e a economia tem base familiar, cooperativada e com experimentos de coletivização.

Οι σημερινές εξελίξεις στα Βαλκάνια, μετά την επιστροφή της Αμερικής στον ενεργό ρόλο της γεωπολιτικής διάλυσης και την εμβάθυνση των φιλελεύθερων μεταρρυθμίσεων με βάση τα σχέδια ΔΝΤ-ΕΕ, αντιστοιχούν στις βλέψεις του κοινού υπερατλαντικού παρανομαστή για τη Μέση Ανατολή. Κι αν τα μάτια μας δικαιολογημένα στρέφονται στις επιθέσεις κατά του Κουρδιστάν στη Συρία-Ιράκ-Τουρκία, τις στιγμές που βιώνει μια πρωτόγνωρη κοινωνική επανάσταση κρατώντας άμυνα απέναντι στον υποβασταζόμενο απ’ την Τουρκία ΙΚΙΛ, οφείλουν να στραφούν και προς τα πάνω, στα Βαλκάνια.

Hemos sido hijas de esta nueva etapa histórica para los pueblos en lucha, que inicia con el quiebre de la política tradicional imperialista en medio oriente y el insostenible programa económico de austeridad en lo que se ha denominado “occidente”. Respectivamente, la primavera árabe y los movimientos de indignadxs figuraron en las primeras planas de los grandes medios de comunicaciones, que con grandes matices, ilustran una nueva era para los movimientos sociales que retoman las históricas banderas de antiimperialismo, anticapitalismo y libertad completa para quienes tienen que sufrir dictaduras militares, civiles y comerciales.

imageColombia: entre la guerra y la paz Aug 06 by Núcleo Comunista Libertario 0 comments

Hace mas de tres años el gobierno colombiano y las Farc-Ep vienen negociando el fin al conflicto armado, que ha silenciado la voz de miles de oprimidos y ha convertido las tierras del país en una fosa común al servicio de las clases dominantes y los intereses de las multinacionales extranjeras. No obstante, esas negociaciones no han sido más que retorica barata para ocultar la verdadera dimensión de un conflicto social y político que todavía sigue destruyendo los sueños de cientos de jóvenes rebeldes y perpetuando un sistema económico injusto, desigual y criminal, que beneficia la billetera de unos pocas familias mientras la mayoría empobrecida se ve en la triste necesidad de auto-explotarse, entregarle la vida a un trabajo indigno y quedarse callada frente a los atropellos cometidos por los cuerpos represivos del Estado y la herramienta para-militar.
