Friday June 12ths shock closure of the iconic Clery’s department store in Dublin shows how the law is set up to favour capital and screw workers. Workers are being told there may be no additional redundancy or owed holiday payments as the company is in debt. But this is only the case because right before the closure the largest asset, the building itself, was separated off from the accumulated debts. This was almost certainly legal under our system but of such obvious dubious morality that the workers could expect massive popular support if they occupied the building on a permanent ongoing basis. read full story / add a comment

Southern Ireland is voting toward on whether to allow Marriage equality, that is to extend marriage to couples of the same gender. Young migrants have flocked back to the country in the last 24 hours to help insure the referendum passes. If it does Ireland will be the first country in the work to introduce Marriage equality by popular referendum yet it was one of the last countries in Europe to decriminalise sex between men. In that sense the referendum is about much more than the issue of Marriage but it also a battle against the 'old Ireland' of clerical control and an authoritarian state that sought to control all aspects of the lives of those under its control. The articles that follow are some of the many that the Workers Solidarity Movement have published, for the most part via their Facebook page. read full story / add a comment

Revolutions are seldom made in favourable circumstances.  Russia 1917 emerged from the mass slaughter of WWI and the disintegration of an economy under the pressure of the supply demands of that war.  Spain 1936 emerged from a well planned and executed fascist coup amongst a powerful military backed and armed by international fascism.  Schemas for revolution that depend on quiet times and plenty may well be doomed from the start. read full story / add a comment

E' in corso da tempo in Irlanda una rivolta contro l'ennesima tassa da austerity, questa volta è la tassa sull'acqua. Nelle aree residenziali del paese ci sono conflitti che vedono da una parte i residenti e dall'altra la Garda (la polizia di stato, ndt) insieme ai sorveglianti privati che devono installare i contatori dell'acqua. Ci sono stati cortei di decine di migliaia di persone. Questa settimana, prendendo a pretesto un piccolo incidente di 3 mesi fa quando gli attivisti del movimento bloccarono con un sit-in di 2 ore l'auto del Tánaiste (termine che indica il vice-primo ministro irlandese, ndt), la polizia irlandese ha fatto delle perquisizioni nelle case di 21 attivisti del movimento. Quello che segue è il report sulla retata della scorsa settimana a cura del Workers Solidarity Movement. [English] read full story / add a comment

A prolonged revolt is happening in Ireland against the introduction of yet another austerity tax, this time as a charge on water. Across the country housing estates have seen conflict between residents, Garda and private security over the installation of water meters. Marches of tens of thousands have taken place. This week seizing on a minor incident 3 months ago when water charge campaigners sat in front of the Tanaistes (Deputy Prime Minister) car for two hours the Irish police (Garda) have mounted dawn raids against the houses of 21 water charge campaigners. The piece that follows is the Workers Solidarity Movement reportage of these raids as they happened over last week. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Έχοντας γράψει ένα μεγάλο κομμάτι για την εκλογή του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, είδα ότι ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ έχει κάνει συνασπισμό με ό,τι έχει περιγραφεί ως αντι-μεταναστευτικό δεξιό (ή ακόμη και ακροδεξιό) κόμμα, τους Ανεξάρτητους Έλληνες (ή ANEΛ). Οι ΑΝΕΛ τηρούν μια ισχυρή αντιευρωπαϊκή στάση, αλλά στο επίπεδο του να βλέπουν τους Έλληνες ως θύματα «διεθνούς συνωμοσίας». Έχουν εκλέξει 15 βουλευτές, κάτι που δίνει έναν συνασπισμό με μια ισχυρή πλειοψηφία με τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ στη Βουλή, ενώ τα δύο κόμματα έχουν συνεργαστεί και στο παρελθόν. Πιθανώς το γεγονός αυτό καθώς και η σθεναρή στάση των ΑΝΕΛ κατά της Ευρωπαϊκής Κεντρικής Τράπεζας (ΕΚΤ) είναι οι λόγοι που ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ αποφάσισε ότι η αντιμεταναστευτική τους πολιτική δεν αποτελεί κάτι σημαντικό. read full story / add a comment

Σήμερα, σε όλη την Ευρώπη, η Αριστερά είναι ενθουσιασμένη καθώς ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ βρίσκεται στην κορυφή των αποτελεσμάτων των ελληνικών εκλογών. Κάποιοι στην αριστερά έχουν προχωρήσει τόσο πολύ που ισχυρίζονται ότι η εκλογή αυτή θα σηματοδοτήσει το τέλος των πολιτικών της λιτότητας, κατά την ορολογία της αγγλικής Αριστεράς, ένα τέλος στην ιδέα ότι δεν υπάρχει εναλλακτική λύση (There Is No Alternative - ΤΙΝΑ). Μια άλλη ένδειξη ότι κάτι σημαντικό συμβαίνει είναι ότι πριν τις εκλογές ένα νέο κύμα φυγής κεφαλαίων ξεκίνησε από την Ελλάδα, με την εκτίμηση ότι 8 δισεκατομμύρια ευρώ μεταφέρθηκαν από τη χώρα κατά τη διάρκεια των τελευταίων εβδομάδων. read full story / add a comment

Do we live in an economy or in a society? Last night Europe's central bankers sent the clear message they expect us to be the well behaved slaves of an economy rather than equals in a society. Less then two weeks after the Greeks had elected an anti-austerity government the ECB in effect told them they intended to block the promises of change that government was elected on. read full story / add a comment

Today, across Europe, the left is excited by Syriza topping the polls in the Greek election. Some on the left have gone so far as to suggest the election itself will mark the end of austerity policies, in the terminology of the Anglo left, an end to the idea that There Is No Alternative (TINA). Another indication that something of significance is happening is that ahead of the election a new wave of capital flight has started from Greece with an estimated 8 billion transferred out of the country over the last few weeks. read full story / add a comment

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for. read full story / add a comment

No one could predict that the joint camp in Masha 12 years ago of Israeli and Palestinian activists will ignite a wide movement of a joint non armed struggle which the Israeli occupying system will fail to extinguish. The thousands of activities and the tens of thousands of participates were not expected. Many small victories and the international B.D.S. warm the hearts of the not too many who persist in the joint struggle in spite of the mourning of those killed, empathy with the injured and solidarity with those arrested. The strong bond of partnership between the Palestinian activists and the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative was surprising. Disappointing but not surprising is the way the people of the Israeli anarchist scene refrained from adopting the initiative as the main recruiting mission. Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum are still holding high the banner.

Cuando escribí el último análisis de coyuntura (los produzco semanalmente para los medios alternativos brasileños), me referí al hecho de que la derecha post-moderna, salga a las calles pidiendo un recurso casi inalcanzable. El debate acerca de una salida presidencial, tiene más repercusión en los círculos de la nueva derecha, que las condiciones concretas para su realización.

28 de agosto de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

"Há uma evidente confluência de ideias-guia entre os que defendem o impeachment nas ruas (os grupos neoliberais) e os políticos de tradição oligárquica no Congresso Nacional. É por isso que no atual momento o povo perde de todos os lados. Seja pela direita que é governo, com o tucano e Chicago Boy Joaquim Levy à frente da pasta do Ministério da Fazenda (o mais importante dos ministérios); seja pela Agenda Brasil e a “salvação” do governo implicando em abrir mão de quase tudo para manter o mandato; seja pela oposição política formal que sem nenhum pudor apresenta um projeto entreguista de exploração de petróleo como o do senador José Serra (PSDB-SP), e na ponta direita da política, o povo brasileiro corre sério risco se as ideias reacionárias expressas nas ruas de 16 de agosto se tornarem realidade em alguma proporção. Logo, há muito mais em jogo do que a continuidade institucional a qualquer custo", constata Bruno Lima Rocha, professor de ciência política e de relações internacionais.

Over the Last 12 months, particularly since Christmas the housing and homeless problem has deepened significantly. From last summer the amounts of families’ registering as homeless went from 264 to now, which are 531. The number of families that are registered as being in need of emergency accommodation is 792 adults with 1,112 dependent children. These statics were issued by the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive. This is a 100% rise within 12 months, but yet the state has not come out and said there is a crisis in housing.

The talk below was given by Lucien van der Walt at an event organised by Sakhaluntu Cultural Group in Grahamstown, for black youth. Thank you all for coming. Thank you, chair, for the invitation. Thank you, organisers, for the event today. Today looks like a great day, a great day to look forward. But before we look forward, we must look back as well.

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.
