Let us learn from our past struggles, in the USA and in Malaysia. May Day should be an occasion to reflect not jubilate, to engage not agonize, to demand not relent, and to organise, not complain. We need systemic change that can guarantee equality, fraternity, self-management and socialisation of the commonwealth, guided by a bottom–up approach to decision making. We need a labour movement that is multicultural and international, feminist, active in urban and rural struggles, and that prizes reason over superstition, justice over hierarchy, self-management over state power, international solidarity over nationalism. We need to fight for a universal human community, not parochialism and separatism. The organisational power and strategic location of the Malaysian union movement provides an excellent point of departure for building this counter-movement. This is our appeal and message as we celebrate this May Day, on the eve of dark days in which the storm clouds gather over humanity – but in which the light of hope of a better future can break through, if we arm ourselves with the correct ideas and approaches. May Day began as an example of globalisation-from-below. Let us rally to it. Let us take back its original vision: liberty, equality, unity.

We said on 18 January in our article “The Arab Spring of Democracy” that all Arab states share the same characteristics, and from this deduction that the same conditions will produce the same results. On 25 January, following the Tunisian revolution, the Egyptian uprising began. Since then, popular uprisings are spreading like wildfire in the Arab world. It is the Arab Spring of democracy. It is a new era full of hope and aspirations that will change the balance of forces in the Middle East, and maybe the world. No Arab country will be spared. read full story / add a comment

Seit dem Abgang Mubaraks konzentrieren sich die arabischen und internationalen Medien auf die Rolle der virtuellen sozialen Netzwerke und der modernen Kommunikationsmittel im ägyptischen Volksaufstand und vergessen dabei absichtlich die anderen revolutionären Innovationen der Ägypter im Kampf gegen den Diktator, ein Kampf, der auf der Basis der Spontaneität und Freiwilligkeit geführt wurde. Die wichtigsten Innovationen sind, nach Meinung des Autors, die Demonstrationen, die ohne hierarchische Führung verliefen, sowie die selbstverwaltete Dauerkundgebung am Tahrir-Platz.
