E' passato più di un mese da quando la Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) ha tenuto una giornata di protesta in occasione della convention provinciale per la guida del Liberal Party, mobilitando almeno 15000 persone per le strade di Toronto fino alle 16.00. La protesta era la risposta sindacale al Disegno di Legge 115, con cui si autorizza il governo provinciale ad eludere la contrattazione collettiva e ad aprire i termini per nuovi "accordi collettivi".

It has been over a month since the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) held their one-day protest of the provincial Liberal Party leadership convention, mobilizing some 15,000 people on the streets of Toronto and then sending them all home again around 4:00 PM. The protest was part of the trade union response to Bill 115, which enabled the provincial government to circumvent collective bargaining and mandate the terms of new “collective agreements”.

north america / mexico / the left / opinion / analysis Sunday March 17, 2013 23:35 byS. Nappalos
The terrain is changing beneath our feet. Since the collapse of the majority of the “official communist” regimes, the world has witnessed both events and ideas that have undermined the former dominant thinking within the left. The Zapatistas, Argentina in 2001, South Korean workers movements, Oaxaca in 2006, the struggles around anti-globalization, and Greece’s series of insurrectionary moments have increasingly presented challenges to traditional left answers to movements and organization. In previous eras Marxist-Leninism was the nexus which all currents by default had to respond to either in agreement or critique. Today, increasingly anarchist practices and theory have come to play this role.

As a member of an anarchist political organization, a friend once told me I in fact was practicing democratic centralism. This was perplexing, because the group had no resembling structures, practices, or the associated behaviors of democratic centralism. However, I was told that since we debated, came to common decisions, and acted on that collective democracy, we were in fact democratic centralist. This kind of productive confusion led to questions about the concept, and why the target of democratic centralism has shifted. This move, the shifting conceptual territory of core concepts of a certain orthodoxy, comes up repeatedly not only with democratic centralism, but also surrounding ideas like crisis, dialectics, the State, and class. The resulting cognitive dissonance caused me to investigate attempts at reinvigorating the concept of democratic centralism (democratic centralist revisionism), and understand truly what it is, where it came from, and how it has been practiced. read full story / add a comment

Raul Reyes. Cinco años en los que la Asociación de Padres y Familiares de las víctimas de Sucumbíos ha dado la lucha contra la impunidad, el genocidio y la guerra sucia. Desde Noticias de la Rebelión nos sumamos al reclamo por la justicia y la libertad para nuestro hijos, hermanos, amigos y compañeros que murieron aquel 1 de marzo de 2008, revolucionarios incansables, seres humanos amorosos siempre dispuestos a escuchar y a ayudar, internacionalistas comprometidos.

Hemos gastado nuestros días buscando la potencia entre las ruinas y la chatarra, pero finalmente nos hemos dado cuenta que no era ahí donde debíamos buscar. Lo que perseguimos no pude habitar en este mundo miserable que no es nuestro, y cuyo entorno es una “snuff-movie” eternamente en “play”. Su esbozo se encuentra acá, en una estrella a punto de estallar que cada uno de nosotros lleva sobre sus hombros. Podemos afirmar que ahora, que hemos perdido un mundo entero y maldecimos con toda la fuerza de nuestras almas, nos encontramos en disposición de conquistar uno nuevo, uno propio.

The documentary Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre (2014, Nickos Ventouras) narrates one of the “bleakest and blackest” chapters in American labor history, the Ludlow Massacre.
A 101 years earlier, on April 20, 1914, in Ludlow, Colorado, USA, a strike for basic labor rights by exploited miners and their families, mostly immigrants, was violently ended by state militia. In the fight, the strikers’ tent colony was machine-gunned and burned to the ground, leaving over twenty people dead, including women and children.

Le Mexique est secoué par les révélations sur un massacre d’étudiant.e.s protestataires, le 26 septembre : 6 morts, 25 blessés et 38 disparus. On vient de retrouver les corps de 17 des disparus, exécutés vraisemblablement par des paramilitaires de mèche avec les pouvoirs publics.

Suite à l’attaque d’une manifestation d’étudiant.e.s mexicains dans le Guerrero par les forces armées de l’État, les organisations et associations qui soutiennent l’« Autre Campagne » en Europe manifestent leur solidarité.

Les nouvelles concernant les étudiant.e.s disparu.e.s sont alarmantes, puisque des corps ont récemment été retrouvés dans des fosses communes. Les témoignages convergent pour accuser les paramilitaires — de connivence avec les autorités locales — d’avoir commis ce massacre.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

Picket lines have returned to Insomnia Cookies, less than two weeks after the company settled with four workers who struck in August of 2013. On Friday March 14, two dozen union members and supporters rallied in front of the Boston location of Insomnia Cookies, demanding the reinstatement with back pay of union organizer and bicycle delivery “driver,” Tasia Edmonds. On March 9 the company suspended Edmonds without pay for a month, alleging insubordination, while the union maintains she was disciplined for her union-building efforts.

W.E.B. Du Bois was an important African-American scholar and activist. In the 60s there was an effort to create a memorial for him in his home town in Massachusetts. This met with a great deal of right-wing resistance. The history of this controversy shines light on the broader issues of racism and Cold War anti-communism.

imageCrisis and Revolt Sep 28 by Wayne Price 0 comments

Liberals and progressive forces support the Democratic Party in elections, even though humanity is facing a number of interconnected threats and nightmarish catastrophes: economic, ecological/climate, and others. Democratic liberals, while perhaps the "lesser evil" to the Republican reactionaries, have no solutions to the objective dangers which threaten society with great suffering and destruction. The only real alternative is popular mass struggle or defeat--socialist-anarchism or catastrophes.
