The Thembelihle Crisis Committee, the United Front (UF), the Right to Know (R2K) Campaign and the Democratic Left Front call on all people of good conscience in South Africa to endorse the call for an end to the security siege of Thembelihle. Since the 25th of February 2015, Thembelihle has faced a de facto State of Emergency at the hands of the South African Police Services (SAPS) and other security agents. This undeclared, unofficial State of Emergency in Thembelihle is an attack on all our constitutionally guaranteed rights to and freedoms to organise, associate and freely express ourselves. We call for urgent action to put pressure on the SAPS to end the siege. We call for the creation of conducive conditions for free, open and democratic political activity in which the people of Thembelihle may express and exercise their right to protest, and have their demands for a decent life of dignity met.

Hundreds of thousands of chiefly white middle class protesters took to the streets in Brazil on 15 March in an organized upsurge of hatred against the federal administration led by President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT). These protests are far more cohesive and better organized than the previous wave of anti-government demonstrations, in 2013; their demands are unambiguously reactionary, and they include primarily the country's elite. read full story / add a comment

Over four years since mass uprisings ousted sclerotic regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, it can seem that the initial hopes represented by these movements lie in tatters. Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq remain mired in bloody armed conflicts that have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands and displaced millions more within and across borders. In the pivotal case of Egypt, military rule has returned through the violent crushing of protests, the arrests of an estimated 40,000 people and the rebuilding of the repressive structures of the [Hosni] Mubarak era. Elsewhere, autocratic governments look more secure in their rule today than they have for many years. read full story / add a comment

I personally make just over $17 an hour, while the average wage of a plow driver is $38,000 a year. And yet you have made it clear that you will not tax the wealthy (like yourself) who can afford it to cover the budget gap which you created. But I do not expect you to necessarily understand the hardships you are asking us to suffer, as I am told you are personally worth ten million dollars. Maybe you don’t understand that taking $36 a paycheck out of my wages (which on average you are proposing for all plow drivers) is the difference between making or missing a mortgage payment, a utility bill, or buying a pair of shoes for the kids. Maybe you cannot understand. read full story / add a comment

On January 25th, Syriza (Coalition of the Radical Left) formed a government in Greece with the help of the ANEL (Independent Greeks). Within 24 hours direct attacks, threats and provocations aimed at the Greek government, about to begin negotiations with EU and Eurozone leaders, began. The attacks were pre-emptive strikes against efforts to find a quick, viable and productive solution to the Greek debt problem that continues to strangle the Greek economy and society; time is very short and everyone is aware that it is working against the efforts of the Greek government that needs to reach an agreement by February 16 or February 28 at the latest. read full story / add a comment
west africa / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Monday February 09, 2015 16:08 byErnest Tate
A press report in 1983 that a popular uprising in Upper Volta, a small and poor land-locked country in Western Africa had led to an obscure, but charismatic army officer becoming head of state was truly inspiring news for all those looking for some kind of breakthrough against imperialism in that part of the world. It had come after the depressing news that Margaret Thatcher's Britain had defeated Argentina in the Malvinas and Ronald Reagan's America had crushed Grenada, a clear message to the world that, on a moment's notice, imperialism would brutally crush anything that threatened its power. But because the American empire had been taken by surprise by the Cuban revolution twenty-four years earlier, many of us were then hopeful that maybe we were witnessing such a possibility again, in Africa. read full story / add a comment

Los atentados y ataques en París han causado conmoción, por lo inesperado, por su brutalidad y por el número de víctimas. En los noticiarios han copado el contenido y han causado una gran reacción. La primera la veíamos ayer, muy interesante, por tratarse el periódico atacado Charlie Hebdo de una publicación satírica, con cientos de ilustraciones de distintos ilustradores de todo el mundo, condenando el ataque (ver interesante artículo a este respecto: “Yo NO soy Charlie” de José Antonio Gutiérrez Danton). Hoy en París con esa manifestación multitudinaria. Y mañana al parecer con otra a la que van a acudir incluso dignatarios de distintos países, incluido Rajoy. Obviamente la situación es trágica pero la reacción me hace cuestionar lo que pasa y como se utilizará. read full story / add a comment

Francia está convulsionada, surcada por la confusión e invadida por los miedos (que casi siempre desembocan en comportamientos xenófobos), porque esta vez la guerra que tanto provocaron y alentaron sus gobernantes ya no alcanza para verla solamente en los televisores. Ahora las balas de un lado y del otro resuenan en las calles de París y sus alrededores, y como no podía ser de otra manera hay muertos. Algunos, como los colaboradores del periódico "Charlie Hebdo", masacrados en su lugar de trabajo. Otros, fusilados por la policía francesa, que en su afán de "encontrar culpables", militariza con más de 80 mil efectivos la capital y sus pueblos adyacentes. Esta es la foto que muestra al mundo, en este particular principio de año, un país que a diferencia de los Estados Unidos, siempre se las ha arreglado para disimular su afición a la violencia, y dentro de ella, las "hazañas" de años de terrorismo estatal.

It was Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight who tipped me over the edge.

To be fair, he wasn’t wholly responsible. If it wasn’t for all the lunacy that preceded him, I probably would have dismissed his cartoon as just another Herald Sun atrocity, more a piece of Murdoch-madness to be mocked rather than trigger for outrage. But context is everything. And after days of sanctimonious blather about freedom of speech and the Enlightenment values of Western civilisation, his was one pencil-warfare cartoon too many. read full story / add a comment

On Wednesday morning, the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was attacked by three masked gunmen, armed with kalashnikovs, who stormed the building and killed ten of its staff and two police officers. The gunmen are currently understood to be Muslim extremists. This attack came minutes after the paper tweeted this drawing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. read full story / add a comment

Many journalists at the offices of Charlie Hebdo have been murdered by bampots brandishing what appear to be machine guns at close range. It is too soon to have a complete, coherent political narrative of these killings. All one can have at this point are the correct but platitudinous points about there being no justification for this, that all attacks on journalists are abhorrent, that freedom of speech must be defended to the last drop of blood, and so on. If you really need that sermon, you’re in the wrong place. read full story / add a comment

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]

The merger between the Zionist leadership and the capitalist elite which started 1948 picked in the Tycoons dominance, at 20010. The "too successful" neo-liberalism was challenged by the social struggle, conflicts within the capitalist elite and threatened by international pressure yielded the diminishing power of the old order when the right lost its absolute power in the parliament depending now on the opponent of the milder Zionist right (Kachlon). It is not sure how fast the retreat in the neo-liberal trend and the defeat of the Tycoons combined with the international pressure will yield also retreat in the advance of the Zionist settler and transfer effort. Mean time the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Kadum, Ma'asarah, Southern Hebron Hills, Sheikh Jarrah, the Bedouins of the south, Dahamsh... with additional locations from time to time.

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

En este texto seguimos profundizando el debate, para hacer un esfuerzo analítico, en el sentido de ser más didáctico, y así instrumentar el debate con la izquierda del gobierno brasileño. Para los y las lectoras desde afuera, es necesario mostrar la situación compleja en la cual hoy vive Brasil, como la crisis política generada a partir de las denuncias de corrupción estructural en Petrobrás. El no cumplimiento de las promesas de la campaña, por la presidenta reelecta Dilma Rousseff (PT), como la política de calle de la derecha neoliberal, maniobrando con recursos publicitarios y bastante inspirada en los escuálidos de Venezuela, pero aún sin guarimba. En este primero texto vamos a comenzar con el tema de la Legitimidad y en su secuencia, para el inicio del debate en cuanto a calidad del liderazgo Político.

Se cumplen 90 años del anarquismo social y organizado en Colombia, 90 años en los que el anarquismo como ideología y como propuesta revolucionaria, ha tenido una intensa labor e influencia entre las trabajadoras y el pueblo colombiano. En distintos momentos históricos el anarquismo aparece en nuestro país para atormentar al poder burgués, alborotar al reformismo autoritario y potenciar la organización, la lucha y la esperanza de las de abajo, pero también en largos periodos históricos el anarquismo ha desaparecido; violentado por las clases dominantes, reprimido por el Estado, marginado por el resto de la izquierda y olvidado por las mismas oprimidas, que originalmente le dieron vida, sentido y actualidad, el proyecto libertario por momentos se ha extinguido y ha dejado de ser una alternativa social, eficaz y duradera en la complicada realidad colombiana.
