The "Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Bill 2013", published by the government on Thursday last (23rd May), is a clear attempt to bully public sector workers into voting for the re-hashed terms of the Croke Park II deal emphatically rejected by them just a couple of weeks ago. read full story / add a comment

The announcement from the Irish government that households are to face a charge of €100 per annum from January 1st with separate water and property taxes to follow by 2014 has met with fierce opposition across the country.  Radio and television shows have been inundated with texts and phonecalls from irate people who see this latest tax as a step too far and who have been pledging to resist the charge.  In a TV3 IrelandAM poll this morning, Wednesday, 87% of people answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Would you consider boycotting the household charge?” read full story / add a comment

Attempts by the Israeli government to sabotage the International ‘Stay Human’ Freedom Flotilla to Gaza have resulted in 2 ships – the Greek-Swedish Juliano and the Irish-owned MV Saoirse – having to withdraw from the Flotilla following damage to both. An emergency demonstration was held at the Spire in Dublin Thursday 30 June to protest the sabotage, see the pictures below. read full story / add a comment

The government has made it clear that it is determined to press ahead with its attempts to impose not one but two new taxes on us.  Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan is preparing to bring plans to government for a household tax, probably starting at €100 per year, from 1st January.  This tax will be added to by a water tax, expected to be introduced within the next couple of years. read full story / add a comment

Durante le proteste contro la finanziaria davanti a Dáil Éireann [camera dei deputati] il 7 dicembre 2010, Gregor Kerr ha pronunciato il seguente discorso a nome del Workers Solidarity Movement. Ricordando la necessità di contestare questa finanziaria, Kerr aggiunge che bisogna guardare oltre e sottolineare il fatto che il capitalismo in quanto modo di organizzare la società è moralmente e politicamente bancarotta. Se vogliamo assicurarci che questa crisi finanziaria, e la miseria economica che ha portato a milioni di lavoratori e lavoratrici in tutto il mondo, sia l'ultima allora occorre organizzarci, non per cambiare gli amministratori del capitalismo bensì per rovesciare il sistema capitalista e sostituirlo con un sistema che mette i bisogni dei molti al di sopra dell'avidità dei pochi. read full story / add a comment

The years from 1995 to 2007 saw record levels of housing construction in Ireland. Construction output went up, land and house prices mushroomed and it seemed as if there was a never-ending bandwagon on which everyone was going to get rich by simply waiting for their pile of bricks to increase in value. read full story / add a comment

Many trade union activists have known for years that “social partnership” comes at a huge price for union independence and the ability of trade unions to defend the interest of their members. The myth that government and employers on one side and workers on the other side have some form of common interest has been peddled for over twenty years. This has resulted in a trade union movement whose leadership seems incapable of independent thought and whose membership has been browbeaten into accepting pay cuts, ‘pension levies’ and various attacks on our working conditions and living standards over the past couple of years. read full story / add a comment

Radio, television and newspaper reports of the recent devastating floods in Pakistan are at last beginning to refer to the sheer scale of the problems faced by the victims. Figures for the number of people affected vary widely. According to the Irish Minister of State for Overseas Development Peter Power, reported in today’s (Tuesday) Irish Times, “the United Nations estimated that 40 million people had been left homeless; that eight million of those were in urgent need of immediate food and shelter; and that the combination of rising water and humidity had made a cholera epidemic a real danger”. RTE’s website says “Aid agencies are saying that the world does not fully understand the scale of the flooding disaster ….. One fifth of the country has been hit by severe flooding, with more than 20m people affected…..The UN believes up to 3.5m children are now at risk of contracting water-borne diseases….”. read full story / add a comment

A metà giugno si è fatta la conta dei voti. Gli organismi dirigenti del sindacato dei Servizi Pubblici dell’Irish Trade Union Congress hanno accettato “l’accordo di Croke Park”. Il “partneriato sociale”, che si pensava morto e sepolto quando nel dicembre 2009 il governo aveva imposto unilateralmente il taglio agli stipendi nel pubblico impiego, sembra essere resuscitata a nuova vita. read full story / add a comment

Across the country workers in government offices, colleges, schools, hospitals etc. are taking action, which they hope will result in a change of government policy. read full story / add a comment

NAMA is nothing short of straight class robbery – robbery from ordinary workers in order to shore up the property developers and big bankers who got us into this mess in the first place. It can be described as unfair, it can be described as immoral but in reality it’s naked capitalism at work. read full story / add a comment

Dublin football fans will want to forget the August Bank Holiday weekend as the Dubs failed to perform in Croke Park against the might of the Kingdom. But one group of Dublin workers are unlikely to forget the 5 days from Friday 31st July to Tuesday 4th August. When the workers in the Thomas Cook office at the top of Grafton Street in Dublin’s city centre went to work as usual on the Friday morning little did they realise that before going home again they would spend 3 days and (almost) 4 nights in occupation of their workplace, that they would be hauled off at 5a.m. in the morning of the 4th night by a force of 80 – 100 gardai who blocked off the street and battered in the door as if they were on the trail of a dangerous terrorist group, and that they would spend several hours held in the Bridewell Garda station before finally being released by the High Court and allowed to go home. read full story / add a comment

The Education Cuts announced in October’s Budget have unleashed a wave of protest across the country. During the months of November and December approximately 120,000 people took to the streets of Dublin, Galway, Tullamore, Cork and Donegal to register their anger at the government’s attempts to make schoolchildren pay for the financial crisis. Cowen, Lenihan and O’Keefe have been left in no doubt about the level of popular opposition to these cutbacks. In addition thousands of 3rd level students have also taken to the streets and participated in marches, pickets and blockades to protest at the proposed re-introduction of fees. read full story / add a comment

As the Irish economy officially went into recession, as electricity bills go up by 17.5%, as food bills are officially 6.4% higher than this time last year, the leaders of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions negotiate through the night and emerge bleary-eyed from the ‘social partnership’ talks with 1) a pay pause and 2) pay increases, when Irish workers eventually get them, lower than the rate of inflation read full story / add a comment

Il 25 aprile 1945 il Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale Alta Italia proclamava l'insurrezione in tutti i territori italiani ancora occupati dai nazifascisti.
Nel giro di 6 giorni, quasi tutta l'Italia settentrionale era stata liberata dai partigiani.
Così il Primo Maggio si festeggiarono contemporaneamente la liberazione e la giornata internazionale dei lavoratori,

textMobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai contre la Loi Travail 13:50 Wed 27 Apr by Relations Extérieures de la CGA 0 comments

Depuis plus d'un mois et demi, de larges secteurs de la société sont mobilisés contre la loi travail, et l'opinion publique rejette très massivement ce nouveau coup porté aux travailleur-ses.
Plus d'un million de manifestant-e-s sont descendu-e-s dans la rue lors de la mobilisation interprofessionnelle du 31 mars, à laquelle s'ajoutent des mobilisations dans la jeunesse ou encore la multiplication des Nuits Debout. Ce mouvement de fond exprime un ras-le-bol et catalyse l'exaspération liée aux attaques incessantes contre les salarié-e-s pour le plus grand bénéfice du patronat.
Alors qu'au mois de mai, le texte de loi sera débattu au Parlement, l'enjeu est d'augmenter massivement le rapport de force en faveur des travailleur-ses, chômeur-ses et de la jeunesse pour que ce projet de régression sociale soit abandonné. Les prochaines mobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai doivent marquer un tournant pour construire un blocage économique qui impose au gouvernement de reculer.

If we want peace, we must follow the example of the workers and worker-soldiers who ended WWI. We must build a working class movement which spans across frontiers and cuts the ground out from under the capitalist governments that have no solution for international problems but war. We must make a workers' revolution and overthrow capitalism. And only then will we be able to build a world of liberty, equality and solidarity – a world at peace.

Συχνά αναφέρεται ότι κατά βάση η υποχρεωτική στράτευση, ανεξαρτήτως κράτους, νομιμοποιείται κοινωνικά από τις εκάστοτε κυρίαρχες ιδεολογίες, τις πολεμικές και θρησκευτικές ιδεοληψίες, την πολιτική και κρατική διαχείριση και τους εθνικισμούς. Αυτό που αναφέρεται λιγότερο συχνά είναι ότι όλα τα παραπάνω, και φυσικά η κοινωνική νομιμοποίηση της υποχρεωτικής στράτευσης, αποδυναμώνονται -αν δεν απονομιμοποιούνται- από τις κοινωνικές αντιστάσεις και τις αρνήσεις των καταπιεσμένων. Ειδικότερα, από τις αρνήσεις στράτευσης, και πόσο μάλλον από αυτές που δημοσιοποιούνται και πληθαίνουν ως ανοιχτές και ορατές κοινωνικές ρηγματώσεις.

imagePrimer de Maig 2016, dia de la classe treballadora May 01 by Embat 0 comments

La forma en la qual es configura i s’organitza el capital al segle XXI ha suposat una gran transformació que tendeix a formes més globalitzades, enxarxades, descentralitzades, altament diversificades i disperses que els moviments sindical i social encara no han pogut contrarestar efectivament. La particularitat que vivim al sud d’Europa és la terciarització de la nostra economia on l’equivalent a les antigues fàbriques fabrils són els calls centers, l’hostaleria, les cadenes de menjar ràpid, les empreses de logística i altres formes d’activitat econòmica no vinculades a la producció. La indústria que queda a Catalunya perd la seva centralitat i es troba financiaritzada. És evident, que el model de conflicte laboral i cultura sindical heretat de la transició ha quedat completament desbordat per aquesta tendència i la reestructuració constant del capitalisme.

The labour movement in Melbourne, though far declined from its former strength, has neither totally given up the ghost nor been allowed quarter by its enemies. Unions campaign for health and safety, against insecure work and against the use of temporary work visas to undermine labour standards. The campaigns, though, are undermined by the conservatism and timidity of the union officials, their support for the Labor Party and their nationalist focus on “Aussie jobs”, which interferes with building the necessary solidarity between local workers and super-exploited migrant workers. Meanwhile, the capitalists are proceeding with legislation to destroy the construction workers' union (CFMEU) and bring the entire union movement under close State supervision.

L’heure est la mobilisation générale contre la loi «Travail» mais aussi contre les politiques d’austérité, la casse des services publics, les attaques contre l’assurance-chômage, les cadeaux aux classes possédantes... Maintenant que nous sommes debout, qu’ils nous rendent tout!
Lycées, facs, jeunesse: Valls a essayé de désamorcer la colère avec quelques mesures qui ne changent rien à la casse du Code du travail que promet la loi El Khomri. Celle-ci va inciter le patronat à abuser des heures supplémentaires bon marché plutôt que d’embaucher. A l’arrivée: davantage de chômage et de précarité, davantage de salarié.e.s épuisé.e.s par des journées à rallonge.

image25 aprile 2016, 1 Maggio 2016 70 anni di Resistenza, 70 anni di lotte sociali Apr 30 by Alternativa Libertaria/FdCA 0 comments

Sono stati decenni in cui quel fascismo, sconfitto militarmente, è riuscito a inserirsi ed a riprodursi all’interno dello Stato e della criminalità organizzata, fino a compiere stragi di popolo per spargere il terrore necessario ad arrestare le lotte operaie e studentesche.
Sono stati decenni in cui il capitalismo italiano ha potuto riprendere l’accumulazione di profitti, imponendo al paese dure condizioni salariali e normative.
Ma l’operazione di riduzione a memorialistica e di depotenziamento del 25 aprile e del 1 Maggio, portata avanti dalle istituzioni statali e da organizzazioni sindacali collaborative e rinunciatarie, non è riuscita a distruggere l’antifascismo ed a falsificarne la memoria, non è riuscita a piegare le lotte dei lavoratori e la loro capacità organizzativa.

28 de abril de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Introdução

O Brasil vive um momento bastante interessante do ponto de vista analítico e desesperador para quem deseja transformar a sociedade brasileira do ponto de vista igualitário. Seria uma ilusão não observar que estamos diante de um golpe de Estado consumado dentro dos ritos formais de nosso arcabouço jurídico-institucional. Como vem sendo afirmado a partir de dois pensadores contemporâneos bastante lúcidos na crítica por esquerda – Vladimir Safatle – e por centro-esquerda – caso do hoje fundamental, Jessé Souza – o momento aponta o final do pacto de Golbery do Couto e Silva da abertura política e a meta estratégica é terminar a tarefa dos acordos de regulação social e os direitos avançados na Constituição de 1988. Para tanto, podemos passar pela aventura da direita (a que estava no governo até duas semanas atrás) e a da proponente do impeachment (a que estava na oposição formal), de um golpe com frágeis bases jurídicas e a derrota histórica para o processo de conciliação de classes, base do lulismo como estrutura de governo, pacto este que já fora operacionalizado por José Dirceu e executado pela hoje presidente Dilma Rousseff, quando a mesma substitui ao primeiro na pasta da Casa Civil, garante a consecução das obras do PAC e com isso assegura a reeleição de Lula em 2006.
