Like in 2008, the recent wave of anti-immigrant violence and looting of foreign-owned stores that followed King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners must “pack their bags and leave” quickly spread to cities and townships across the country. Unlike other places in Johannesburg, however, there were no reports of xenophobic violence in Thembelihle and, although the violence spread to numerous parts of Soweto in 2008, this adjacent township was unaffected then too. This article, based on an interview with an activist from the Thembelihle Crisis Committee (TCC), looks at how working class self-organisation and solidarity helped curb or prevent the outbreak of xenophobic attacks and attempts to draw lessons for preventing future attacks.

africa meridionale / migrazione / razzismo / opinione / analisi Thursday October 02, 2008 16:57 par Steffi, Jonathan Payn e James Pendlebury
A solo 14 anni dalla fine dell'apartheid qualcuno sostiene che siamo in presenza di una nuova apartheid. A solo 14 anni dal genocidio in Rwanda c'è chi dice che in Sud Africa si stia verificando un genocidio particolare. Niente a che vedere con il gap economico tuttora esistente tra sudafricani con diverso colore della pelle e nemmeno con una guerra tra diversi gruppi etnici come in Rwanda.

Only 14 years after the end of apartheid some say that this is a new apartheid. Only 14 years after the genocide in Rwanda some say that this is a genocide South African style. But this time it is not just about the still existing economic gap between South Africans of different skin colours, nor about a war between different ethnopolitical groups like in Rwanda. It is about nationality and the fight between those who have the minimum security of being born in South Africa, and the unlucky ones who have no such security – who have, in many cases, had to flee to South Africa from violence or starvation elsewhere. The events of May 2008 show a deep xenophobic sentiment in South Africa that is largely due to social and economic circumstances. It is a poisonous cocktail of nationalism mixed with lack of service delivery. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Essere presenti a Ventimiglia, così come al Brennero, a Lampedusa o a Calais significa contribuire a sgretolare le frontiere di questa Fortezza Europa ormai in crisi. Un giorno sulle frontiere di quest’Europa balleremo, ricordando i tempi in cui ancora provavano a respingerci.

Saturday police in Greece batoned and tear gassed protesters outside one of the migrant detention camps now being run by Syriza. Militant protests both inside and outside the camp resumed last weekend after the suicide of a Pakistani migrant, Nadim Mohammed who had been held for 18 months, released and then returned to the Amygdaleza camp. The news of the suicide broke on February 14th along with the news that another migrant had killed themselves in Thessaloniki police station.

Libertarian Syndicalist Union (ESE Athens) supports and joins in solidarity movements for the Syrian refugees (victims of war) which live in Greece. Apart from their fair request for direct provision of asylum and travel documents, these people have huge needs in terms of accommodation, food, health care, etc. Hundreds of Syrian refugees reside in hotels (as a stopgap solution), not in good conditions , being under the responsibility of the Greek government and Athens' mayor. We can also report that food supplies for the above refugees are οbtained from charities and solidarity movements.

We condemn with equal determination the murderous antisemitic violence that has been unleashed against a cosher supermarket's customers.

imageFor how long can South African elites keep misleading the people? Aug 26 by Philip Nyalungu 0 comments

Those in power don’t want to confront the status quo of hatred against immigrants, or South Africa’s imperialist role in the region. They have a narrow set of interests: getting votes, accumulating wealth and power. However, the recent wave of attacks on immigrants and the ruptures of relations with other African countries – especially where South African corporations are operating – have touched the most delicate nerves of the established political powers, who have vowed to advance corporate interests in making profits.

Η de facto πολιτική της Ε.Ε, είναι να αφήνει τους μετανάστες να πνίγονται, ώστε να τους αναγκάσει να φοβηθούν να κάνουν το ταξίδι. Το 2014, σχεδόν 4.000 πτώματα ανθρώπων περισυνελέγησαν από τη Μεσόγειο. Κι αυτός ο αριθμός αντιπροσωπεύει, μόνο τα πτώματα που βρέθηκαν. Ο συνολικός αριθμός των αφίξεων στην Ιταλία το 2014 ανέβηκε πάνω από 300% σε σχέση με το 2013, με περισσότερους από 170.000 πρόσφυγες.

Το παρακάτω κείμενο αφιερώνεται στους διοργανωτές της πορείας της 23ης Μάη στη γερμανική Πρεσβεία αλλά και της προσπάθειας των 3 γεφυρών, που –ματαίως- επιδιώκουν να θέσουν στο κέντρο του προβληματισμού το διεθνές ζήτημα αν και από διαφορετική οπτική γωνιά. Παρ’ όλες τις ενστάσεις που διατυπώνονται από το κυρίαρχο ρεύμα και που έχουν προκαλέσει μια ένταση που δεν αιτιολογείται για τις «παρεκκλίσεις» των πρώτων, οι προσπάθειες αυτές αποτελούν ένα χώρο προβληματισμού τουλάχιστον, που δυνητικά θα πυροδοτήσει σοβαρές εποικοδομητικές παρεμβάσεις, σε μια πολύ κρίσιμη περίοδο για την ελλαδική κοινωνία.

imageLos Estados Unidos y la encrucijada de su población latino-americana Parte 1 Jun 17 by BrunoL 0 comments

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

Nosotros, los latino-americanos, tenemos una identidad múltiple y diversas, cuando nos referimos a las distintas razas y colectividades étnico-culturales de los países del Continente. A la vez, reforzamos la idea de que “nadie es gringo al sur del Río Grande”, de México a la Patagonia, somos todas y todos hermanos. A la vez, por el hecho de que nuestros territorios, aún viven la pesadilla de la injusticia social basada en la orden post-colonial, además tenemos al “gran hermano del norte”, como nuestro tormento permanente. Esto puede llevarnos a tener una visión equivocada, del ambiente doméstico dentro de los estados que forman EEUU.
