Since Hugo Chávez first took office, he and his party have won 13 of 14 national elections, mainly because they greatly improved the living standards of the majority of voters in Venezuela. Since 2004, after the economy recovered from the devastating opposition oil strike, poverty has been cut by half and extreme poverty by more than 70 percent. read full story / add a comment

venezuela / colombia / la izquierda / non-anarchist press Monday October 08, 2012 03:19 byMark Weisbrot
El 30 de mayo Dan Rather, uno de los periodistas más famosos de EE. UU. Anunció que el presidente venezolano Hugo Chávez iba a morir “en un par de meses como mucho”. Cuatro meses después, Chávez no sólo está vivo y en campaña electoral, sino con las mayores expectativas de ser reelegido el domingo. Tal es el grado de tergiversación cuando se trata de Venezuela, probablemente el país sobre el que más se miente en el mundo, y del que un periodista puede decir casi de todo sobre Chávez o su gobierno sin que le reporte ningún problema, siempre que lo que diga sea negativo para el país o su presidente. Peor aún, Rather se refiere a Chávez como “el dictador”, un término que pocos científicos políticos que conozcan el país tolerarían, por no decir ninguno. read full story / add a comment

About 25-30 workers at International Flavours and Fragrances (IFF) in Dandenong, Melbourne have initiated a factory occupation in january 25 2015 in response to the company trying to force a pay cut and indefinitely locking them out. SUPPORT IS NEEDED NOW! It's really significant that these workers have decided to take strong industrial action at a point when workers rights are under attack more than ever.

Libertarian Syndicalist Union (ESE Athens) supports and joins in solidarity movements for the Syrian refugees (victims of war) which live in Greece. Apart from their fair request for direct provision of asylum and travel documents, these people have huge needs in terms of accommodation, food, health care, etc. Hundreds of Syrian refugees reside in hotels (as a stopgap solution), not in good conditions , being under the responsibility of the Greek government and Athens' mayor. We can also report that food supplies for the above refugees are οbtained from charities and solidarity movements.

Inesperadamente ha dejado este mundo –forzosamente-, pero sus palabras serán visibles en las ideas y caminos por la construcción de un mundo nuevo, un mundo lleno de ilusión, esperanza y amor, aquel mundo nuevo que llevamos dentro de nuestros corazones.2 Parte un compañero para vivir, vivir eternamente en los corazones e ideas, pero también quedan las huellas y pasos hechos por la dignidad y la solidaridad, en esta construcción donde nos encontramos día a día, codo a codo.

La victoria se celebró tanto en Kobane como en otras partes del mundo, sin embargo, EEUU señaló al mismo tiempo que la disputa de la ciudad continua.

Un agresivo cáncer te llevó muy temprano. Demasiado incorrecto para recibir un Premio Nacional. Demasiado rebelde para la cultura de los Fondart. No fuiste un escritor embobado por la extravagancia del mundo de las letras, fuiste un hombre pobre, homosexual y creador inigualable: “Hay tantos niños que van a nacer con una alita rota y yo quiero que vuelen compañero. Que su revolución les dé un pedazo de cielo rojo para que puedan volar”.

Today, the gangs that the states created for their interests are running away though the ruins they are leaving behind in Kobanê. While the victory of resistance is echoing in the free streets of Kobanê, the

conviction of freedom is rising above the same ruins in the streets. Like comrade Durutti says, "We are not in the least afraid of ruins". Today and tomorrow, in Kobanê and many other places, we know that a new life is being created among the ruins.

imageJoaquim Levy y el mito del gobierno en disputa Feb 02 by BrunoL 0 comments

Por: Bruno Lima Rocha

Parece que por fin cayó la máscara, y el poder central asumió lo que ya pensaba en la llamada tercera vuelta de las elecciones presidenciales. Brasil tiene dos vueltas, siendo la tercera la no electoral, la que se negocia entre grupos de poder y partidos que han perdido las elecciones. Ahora los ganadores han expuestos su verdadero rostro o al menos la cara dura hegemónica. En la nota de la revista Carta Capital con fecha de 18 de enero de 2015 (escrita por el reportero Carlos Drummond) el ajuste fiscal aplicado por el Ministro de Hacienda, Joaquim Levy, se le caracterizó como "puñalada fiscal".

Σε αυτή την ηλεκτρονική μπροσούρα θα γίνει μια προσπάθεια ανάλυσης της «νέας αναρχίας», υπό το πλαίσιο της κοινωνικής ψυχολογίας και της ψυχοδυναμικής προσέγγισης. Στόχος η συμβολή στα «εντός του χώρου» τεκταινόμενα στο επίπεδο των ιδεών και πώς αυτά διαμορφώνονται στο σύγχρονο περιβάλλον. Η ανάλυση επικεντρώνεται στις ιδέες (γενικό), χρησιμοποιεί τα γεγονότα μόνο ως παράδειγμα (μερικό) και δεν εστιάζει στους ανθρώπους (εδικό) σε προσωπικό επίπεδο. Ο άνθρωπος ως δρών υποκείμενο λαμβάνει θέση στα γεγονότα, κατασκευάζοντας την πραγματικότητά του, σύμφωνα με τις πληροφορίες που δέχεται. Είναι όμως οι σκοποί και τα μέσα επίτευξής τους αυτά που διαφοροποιούν και διαμορφώνουν τη δράση. Η συγγραφή δεν ήταν εύκολο έργο μιας και ο γράφων υποστηρίζει τον Ιστορικό Μείζονα Αναρχισμό, που ευρύτερα περιγράφεται ως Κοινωνικός Αναρχισμός. Με αυτό θέλω να τονίσω ότι στην πραγματικότητα δεν υπάρχει στην ανάλυση των κοινωνικών και πολιτικών φαινομένων καμία ουδετερότητα η οποία πηγάζει από μια υποτιθέμενη «επιστημονική» ή «ακαδημαϊκή» αντικειμενικότητα. Η Προσπάθεια ήταν να ανοίξει και όχι να εξαντλήσει το θέμα, παρουσιάζοντας την ερμηνεία ως εκδοχή και αφετηρία για σκέψη.

imageStrike to stop aboriginal deaths in custody Jan 31 by MACG 0 comments

The movement against Aboriginal deaths in custody is growing. It is growing because the deaths just keep happening, and that’s criminal. We're not just talking about deaths from natural causes. Many of these deaths are far from natural.

imageW.E.B. Du Bois and the Fight over His U.S. Memorial Jan 30 by Wayne Price 0 comments

W.E.B. Du Bois was an important African-American scholar and activist. In the 60s there was an effort to create a memorial for him in his home town in Massachusetts. This met with a great deal of right-wing resistance. The history of this controversy shines light on the broader issues of racism and Cold War anti-communism.
