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

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

Προφανώς τα αφεντικά έχουν βρει τις κυβερνήσεις και το κράτος το οποίο θέλουν, τα οποία τους παρέχουν τα κατάλληλα παραθυράκια στη νομοθεσία έτσι ώστε να φαίνονται ότι την τηρούν. Για να υψωθεί τοίχος ενάντια στην βαρβαρότητα των αφεντικών και στην εργασιακή συνθήκη που μας επιβάλλουν , οι εργαζόμενοι πρέπει να δημιουργήσουν πυρήνες αντίστασης και διεκδίκησης σε κάθε χώρο εργασίας. Οι συνθήκες εργασίας και οι εργατικές νομοθεσίες δεν πρόκειται να αλλάξουν ούτε από μόνες τους ούτε από δεξιές ή αριστερές κυβερνήσεις αλλά μόνο με τους αγώνες των καταπιεζόμενων.

Ως εργαζόμενοι κι εργαζόμενες, ως άνεργοι-ες, ως καταπιεσμένοι και καταπιεσμένες αντιλαμβανόμαστε πως κάθε αγώνας που εμπεριέχει μέσα του το ζήτημα της επιβίωσης, ξεκινά από μία θέση άμυνας. Θα σεβαστούμε κάθε θέση τους αρκεί αυτή να είναι ξεκάθαρη απέναντι μας, απέναντι στο κίνημα της αλληλεγγύης και ολόκληρη την κοινωνία των “από κάτω”. Ας σεβαστούν όμως και οι ίδιοι πως έχουμε όλο το δικαίωμα να γνωρίζουμε το τι θέλουν κάνουν, και πως δεν έχουν κανένα δικαίωμα να παίζουν παιχνίδια με την αλληλεγγύη, την αξιοπρέπεια και τις ιδέες ενός κινήματος που έρχεται μέσα από την ιστορία και κατά τη γνώμη μας ξαναγράφει δειλά δειλά νέες σελίδες σε αυτή.

Turkish troops and so-called 'moderate Islamist' Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants have entered Jarablus town centre and taken over all government buildings from Islamic State. Reports say almost no clashes took place between the two sides as IS militants had evacuated the city days before. Footage from FSA militants also shows that there is no civilian presence left in the city in Syria's north.

Dopo tanti anni è dura abituarsi alla sostituzione dei lacrimogeni e dei proiettili con la minaccia di essere arrestati se uno supera una certa linea immaginaria. Per molti anni ci siamo preoccupati di quando sarebbe arrivato il giorno in cui chi prende le decisioni nello Stato di Israele avrebbe ridotto al minimo e persino interrotto la dura repressione delle manifestazioni unitarie settimanali contro l'occupazione, contro i coloni e contro il muro della separazione. Il 27-5-16 a Bil'in fu la prima volta in cui le forze di stato non spararono su una manifestazione. Ce ne vollero altre dodici così perchè capissimo che eravamo davanti ad un vero cambiamento di strategia. Lo scorso venerdì loro ci hanno persino "invitato" a tornare a manifestare nell'area del nuovo muro della separazione - proibita a tutti noi da almeno un anno. Pare che i tanti milioni investiti nella lotta per contrastare la campagna B.D.S. (boicottaggio, disinvestimento, sanzioni contro le merci israeliana, ndr) siano serviti ad assumere dei managers più intelligenti in grado di costringere l'esercito a ingoiare il proprio orgoglio ed a smettere di maltrattare le manifestazioni del venerdì e gli attivisti internazionali che
vi prendono parte.

After so many years it is hard to get used to the replacement of tear gas and bullets with threat of arrests if we cross an imaginary line. For many years we worried about the day when the Israeli state decision makers will minimise or even stop the the harsh repression of the weekly joint demonstrations against the occupation, the settlers and the separation wall. On 27-5-16 was the first demo in Bil'in the state forces did not shoot us. It took a dozen such non shootings to realize it is a real strategic shift. The last Friday they even "invited" us to return the demo to the area near the new separation wall - forbidden for us for about a year. It seems the multi millions invested in the struggle against the B.D.S. recruited a more intelligent managers who was able to force the army to swallow their pride and stop harassing the Friday demos and the international activists participating in them.

È ormai imminente l'avvio del nuovo anno scolastico. La sede in cui dovrò prestare servizio è quella dell'anno scorso: dista pochi chilometri dal luogo in cui attualmente abito ed è un ambiente, tutto sommato, vivibile e pacifico. Almeno per il momento, gli effetti velenosi della "Buona Scuola" non sono stati inoculati.
