southern africa / workplace struggles / press release Thursday September 08, 2011 16:49 byMbuyiseni Ndlozi, James Pendlebury, Komnas Poriazis
Beginning on Sunday 28 August, Wits students have been littering parts of campus in solidarity with the cleaners’ strike. Cleaners throughout South Africa are demanding a living wage of R4 200 per month: this compares with less than R2 000 paid to cleaners at Wits, who are employed by outsourcing companies such as Supercare. The strike has been undermined, at Wits and elsewhere, by the presence of scab labour; Wits management and the outsourcing companies are striving for “business as usual”. This undermines the entire purpose of the strike, which is to compel exploiter-managers to meet workers’ demands by withdrawing their labour, by preventing the job from getting done – by making sure the campus is not clean. read full story / add a comment

This article argues that active abstention is the only strategic and tactical approach to the 2009 South African elections which is consistent with revolutionary anti-capitalist politics. It was written for a forthcoming issue of Khanya: A Journal for Activists, which will present a range of different approaches that social movements may take in response to the 2009 elections. read full story / add a comment

A solo 14 anni dalla fine dell'apartheid qualcuno sostiene che siamo in presenza di una nuova apartheid. A solo 14 anni dal genocidio in Rwanda c'è chi dice che in Sud Africa si stia verificando un genocidio particolare. Niente a che vedere con il gap economico tuttora esistente tra sudafricani con diverso colore della pelle e nemmeno con una guerra tra diversi gruppi etnici come in Rwanda.

Only 14 years after the end of apartheid some say that this is a new apartheid. Only 14 years after the genocide in Rwanda some say that this is a genocide South African style. But this time it is not just about the still existing economic gap between South Africans of different skin colours, nor about a war between different ethnopolitical groups like in Rwanda. It is about nationality and the fight between those who have the minimum security of being born in South Africa, and the unlucky ones who have no such security – who have, in many cases, had to flee to South Africa from violence or starvation elsewhere. The events of May 2008 show a deep xenophobic sentiment in South Africa that is largely due to social and economic circumstances. It is a poisonous cocktail of nationalism mixed with lack of service delivery. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Ας οικοδομήσουμε τα κινήματά μας σε τέτοιο σημείο που οι μετανάστες - οι γυναίκες που βιάζονται ή οι ομοφυλόφιλοι που αντιμετωπίζουν τη σοβινιστική βία – να μη χρειαστεί ν’ αναζητήσουν την αμφίβολη βοήθεια της αστυνομίας.

For decades, nationalism – African or Afrikaner – has been the dominant ideology in South Africa. It has drawn the working class into unity with the bosses, and divided workers from their fellow workers. It has promised freedom and delivered oppression; it has promised bread and delivered starvation. Nationalism can play a progressive role when in opposition to an oppressive regime, but in power, it invariably becomes a weapon against the working class. The pogroms of May 2008 are the latest disaster to arise from nationalism. [Ελληνικά] read full story / add a comment

A comrade fighting for water and housing in Sebokeng, south of Johannesburg, was murdered by police on the night of April 30. The ZACF condemns the latest outrage in a long tale of repression of working class movements, and calls on the oppressed to stand firm in struggle. read full story / add a comment

textPalestina-Israele - conflitto senza fine tra il colonialismo sionista ed i palestinesi 17:56 Tue 22 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

Siamo al 13° giorno di guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas. In tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Tutto quello che Israele vuole da questa guerra è rompere l'unità di governo palestinese ed evitare l'accelerazione degli accordi di pace. Il problema causato dalla resa di Hamas, messa in ginocchio dalla crisi economica, alla Autorità Palestinese, deriva dalle scelte del governo egiziano, il quale minaccia molto seriamente quel progetto di divisione permanente dei Palestinesi a cui Israele ha dedicato tanti sforzi. Il solo totale collasso del governo di Hamas nella Striscia di Gaza spaventa Israele più di ogni altra cosa. [English]

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

I diversi fattori che al momento sembrano scollegati tra loro delineano il punto di caduta o, almeno, il tentativo del capitale di trovare un nuovo equilibrio internazionale per assicurare una nuova fase di accumulazione capitalistica, in area occidentale (USA-EU). Ciò che viene comunemente definita crisi e che dal 2008 affligge interi popoli sembra non poter uscire dalla propria dimensione monetaria. Una politica monetaria - che vede le banche commerciali protagoniste nella creazione di danaro attraverso il prestito reso possibile dall'aumento del debito - ha una funzione temporale necessaria a proteggere la capitalizzazione del sistema finanziario, ma ha il pregio di mostrare a tutti quali sono le dinamiche del potere finanziario.

Proprio quando la pressione dell'Europa su Israele per un compromesso con il governo palestinese stava cogliendo il momento giusto favorito dal calo in atto delle esportazioni israeliane, Israele ha cercato di trarre vantaggio dal rapimento dei tre giovani coloni applicando i "piani nel cassetto" nel tentativo di incendiare una intifada armata. Quasi tre settimane di propaganda basata su menzogne (come se sapessero già della morte dei tre giovani) hanno inondato i media. Quando alla fine i corpi sono stati "trovati", le bugie sono risultate per quello che erano e le intimidazioni per far accendere l'intifada hanno fallito l'obiettivo. I crescenti crimini di odio dell'estrema destra israeliana e l'uccisione di un giovane palestinese a Gerusalemme Est occupata hanno scatenato una dura reazione nella città e nelle zone palestinesi all'interno dei confini del 1948.

When the European pressure on Israel to compromise with the Palestinian elite collected momentum - already diminishing exports, Israel tried to take advanced of the kidnapped three settlers youth applying "plans from the drawer" trying to ignite armed Intifada. Nearly three weeks of propaganda based on lies (as if they are searching for the already known to them to be dead three youth) was all over the media. When lastly the bodies were "found", lies were exposed, and the harassments failed to ignite Intifada. The mounted hate crimes of the Israeli extreme right and murder of a Palestinian youth of the annexed East Jerusalem ignited an extreme response there and within the Palestinian regions within the 1948 borders. Vicious harassment of US-Palestinian youth - cousin of the murdered youth which was video typed became together with the video of the kidnapped cousin became viral all over the world and ignited solidarity demos all over the world.

imageA falácia do Banco Central independente Jul 18 by BrunoL 0 comments

16 de julho de 2014, Bruno Lima Rocha

Um dos temas de fato proibidos para os candidatos favoritos na próxima eleição presidencial é a subordinação do Banco Central (BC) à vontade política dos eleitores. A cartilha neoliberal defende a “independência” da autoridade monetária, de modo que esta não seja “politizada”. Este absurdo conceitual até poderia ser considerado esdrúxulo caso não fosse tão perigoso. Tornar independente da vontade soberana - ainda que exercida de forma indireta - o centro nervoso dos recursos coletivos é como condicionar a capacidade de governo a um gesto de obediência ao sujeito oculto e onipresente chamado de “mercado”.

The FIFA World Cup is considered one of the biggest events in the world. It should come as no surprise then that the commands of the institution that is run by Sepp Blatter should continue to make hundreds of demands against the country that is to welcome the games. In practice, this means that fundamental rights are to be suspended, especially in a country with a “leftist” government. Just another day in the tropical country. [Castellano]

Η κρίση στο Ιράκ συνεχίζεται για δεκαετίες, ενώ ήταν υπό την εξουσία του Σαντάμ Χουσεΐν ή κάτω από το «σημερινό δημοκρατικό καθεστώς» μετά την εισβολή του 2003. Δεν υπήρχε ελευθερία ούτε κοινωνική δικαιοσύνη ούτε ισότητα ούτε και μια μικρή, έστω, ευκαιρία για εκείνους που ήταν ανεξάρτητοι από τα πολιτικά κόμματα που βρίσκονταν στην εξουσία. Εκτός από την υφιστάμενη βαρβαρότητα και τις διακρίσεις κατά των γυναικών και των απλών ανθρώπων δημιουργήθηκε ένα πολύ μεγάλο χάσμα μεταξύ πλουσίων και φτωχών, καθιστώντας τους φτωχούς ακόμα φτωχότερους και τους πλούσιους πλουσιότερους.
