Con acabarse el segundo turno y, luego hoy, el traspaso de poderes de Preval a Martelly, la selección del imperialismo, junto con sus representantes en el país (particularmente en la vida política) ha terminado. A pesar de una débil participación, menos del 25 por ciento, las clases dominantes han confirmado y celebrado su farsa: así, los enemigos del pueblo han puesto un nuevo nudo en la cuerda que nos tienen por el cuello. read full story / add a comment

Much has been said and much is happening. The situation is very grave. Very. This situation is maddening! The January 12th earthquake has devastated several cities in Haiti. There are several others that were struck but are not being talked about, because Port-au-Prince, Léogane, Ti Gouave, and Jacmel have all been impacted so much. As everyone knows, many, many persons have died or disappeared, many have lost limbs, many houses have been destroyed, and many have been left homeless. Many who were working lost their lives, many workers perished at work in their factories, street vendors, public sector employees, store employees, students, people in the streets and in popular neighborhoods… What a huge blow!
We must dispel from the very start any kind of divine interpretation of this disaster as an “Act of God”, a “malediction”… These considerations can only deter us and prevent us from understanding the real cause of the earthquake, which is completely natural and had been predicted by a few scientists. This trend of thought also increases our resignation, faced with a “divine intervention” and leaves us waiting helpless and alienated. On the other hand, these divine interpretations also mask the responsibility of the Haitian State, which had been forewarned and did nothing in terms of contingency planning to address some of these consequences.
Therefore, it’s important to stay level headed, to address the real problems, to think well, together, so that we can uncover the real solutions.
In doing so, we should be clear about:
• In what context, and in what conjuncture we were when the earthquake struck;
• Some of the perils we are facing;
• What we need to do to confront this challenge, and from which class interest.

En pleno día, en medio de una plaza pública de un barrio de Santo Domingo, capital de la República Dominicana, luego de haber sido torturado públicamente, le cortaron la cabeza con un hacha a un trabajador emigrante haitiano. Se llamaba Carlos Nerilus. El hecho ocurrió frente a un gentío riéndose, aplaudiendo. Algunos hasta filmaban con celular. La policía cercana, no movió ni un dedo, ni durante ni después de la ejecución.

Según lo que se dice, se trata de un conflicto de trabajo, donde el trabajador había por su parte matado a un patrono dominicano quién le debía meses de trabajo sin pagar. Según lo que se dice, el trabajador asesinado no fue quién mató al capitalista, sino su hermano. Por no encontrar al hermano, lo cogieron a ese y abiertamente lo arrastraron hasta la plaza pública de aquel barrio y lo decapitaron allí después de largas torturas públicas.

En Haití, una alta indignación brotó enseguida y varias protestas salieron y siguen saliendo.

Today, October 17th, marks the anniversary of the assassination of Haiti ’s founding father, Jean-Jacques Dessalines. This is also the same week in which the UN occupation forces, the MINUSTAH, announced the renewal of its mandate on our land of Dessalines . These troops, led by Brazil , are mainly composed of Latin Americans, a region whose independence was largely gained with the help of the new Haitian nation.

Μοιράζεται με ελεύθερη οικονομική συνεισφορά και δεν θέλει να έχει καμία σχέση με ΜΜΕ και εμπορευματικές διαδικασίες. Αντιθέτως, η χρήση της για τους σκοπούς του κοινωνικού/ταξικού ανταγωνισμού είναι παραπάνω από επιθυμητή.

1980 darbesinden bu yana, bu topraklardaki devlet varlığının kaçınılmaz bir siyasi gerçeği olan darbe, 36 yıl sonra 15 Temmuz’unu 16’sına bağlayan gece vuku buldu. İstanbul ve Ankara merkezli gerçekleşen askeri hareketlilikte pek çok devlet binası bir süreliğine bloke edildi. Ankara’da savaş uçaklarının havalanması ve İstanbul’da köprülerin askerler tarafından trafiğe kapatılmasıyla başlayan darbe, Genelkurmay Başkanı’nın rehin alınması, sokaklarda tank ve silah seslerinin yükselmesiyle devam etti. MİT Müsteşarlığı binasından TBMM’ye birçok devlet binası F16’lar ve helikopterlerle vuruldu; pek çok yerde asker ve polis arasında silahlı çatışmalar yaşandı. Bu gelişmeleri izleyen süreçte devlet televizyonunun yayını kesilerek canlı yayında “Yurtta Sulh Konseyi” imzası taşıyan darbe bildirisi okundu. “5 saatlik darbe” sona erdiğinde yüz üzerinde asker, 80 üzerinde polis ve 80 üzerinde darbe karşıtı protestocu öldü. Aralarında çok sayıda yüksek rütbeli komutanın bulunduğu 2839 asker gözaltına alındı.

The coup, which has been an inevitable reality of the state presence in this geography since the military coup of 1980, arose after 36 years, on the night of July 15. Many state buildings were blocked for a few hours during the military mobilisation based in Istanbul and Ankara. The coup started with flypast of fighter jets in Ankara and blocking of bridges in Istanbul by soldiers, and continued with taking hostage of chief of general staff and tank noise and gun shots in the streets. Many state buildings were shot by F16s and helicopters including the parliament building and the headquarters of National Intelligence Organisation; There were clash of arms in many places between soldiers and police. Following the events, national state television broadcast was cut and the coup declaration signed 'Peace at Home Council'' was read. When the ''5 Hour Coup'' ended, more than one hundred soldiers, more than eighty police officers and more than eighty anti-coup protesters died. 2839 soldiers, among them many high ranked ones, were taken into custody.

Το κράτος δεν παρέχει μία εναλλακτική οδό στον καπιταλισμό ούτε ο καπιταλισμός στο κράτος. Και οι δύο αυτές δομές κοινωνικής οργάνωσης συνδέονται εσωτερικά και αλληλοσυμπληρώνονται. Δεδομένου του γεγονότος ότι καμία από τις δύο δομές δεν είναι επιθυμητή αναδύεται η ερώτηση: υπάρχει ένας τρίτος δρόμος; Η συζήτηση που προηγήθηκε για τον αναρχο-συνδικαλιστικό-ακρατικό σοσιαλισμό – προσπάθησε να δείξει τη διανοητική συνοχή, την πιθανότητα, και την επιθυμία του ως εναλλακτικής διεξόδου. Το θέμα επομένως που αντιμετωπίζουν οι σοσιαλιστές δεν είναι: “εάν ήρθε το τέλος της ιστορίας” Η πρόκληση μάλλον είναι να ανακαλύψουμε ξανά και να μάθουμε από ένα σημαντικό κομμάτι της ιστορίας, την πλούσια και ιστορικά καταξιωμένη παράδοση του αναρχοσυνδικαλισμού.

Durante enero de este año la llegada de la marea roja desató una serie de movilizaciones en la Región de Los Lagos. Esta era la causa principal presentada por el gobierno para la crisis socioambiental que azotaba la región, silenciando las consecuencias de la depredación de las empresas salmoneras en la zona. Una salmonera había vertido el día 9 de mayo, 9 toneladas de desperdicios a 17 millas de la costa de Ancud, con la aprobación de Directemar y Sernapesca. Pero este no era un hecho aislado, ya habían pasado 40 años de industria salmonera en el territorio.

Certains sont mêmes allés jusqu'à dire que le président turc avait finalement eu son "incendie du Reichstag", qu'il va utiliser comme un prétexte parfait pour continuer à imposer son projet autoritaire et réduire au silence les voix critiques dans le pays comme à l'étranger.
