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

Ce grand projet inutile serait une catastrophe en termes de destruction de la nature et de ravages écologiques. En effet, certains tunnels seront creusés sur des gisements d'uranium et d'amiante, qui auront pour effet de répandre des poussières de ces minerais dans l'atmosphère de la vallée. D'autre part, de nombreuses expropriations sont prévues pour la construction de la voie ferrée, notamment de terres agricoles. [English]

La lotta unitaria dei comitati popolari dei villaggi e degli israeliani di "Anarchici contro il muro" è iniziata circa 12 anni fa nel campo di Mas'ha. Le lotte unitarie si sono sviluppate in vari villaggi con successo alterno, ma solo la lotta del villaggio di Bil'in si è fatta persistente anno dopo anno tenendo alta la bandiera della lotta popolare non-armata e diventando il punto di riferimento per l'attenzione e l'ispirazione dei Palestinesi di tutta di Cisgiordania e di migliaia di attivisti internazionali che si sono uniti a noi per brevi periodi (alcuni anche più a lungo) diffondendo le notizie e la lotta una volta tornati a casa. Anche alcune migliaia di attivisti della variegata sinistra radicale israeliana sono stati a Bil'in almeno una volta aiutandoci ad impedire l'emarginazione della resistenza popolare palestinese.

Όταν ένα σύστημα εξουσίας βυθίζεται σε κατάσταση κρίσης, εκδηλώνεται πάντοτε ανάμεσα στις ελίτ και τις προνομιούχες κοινωνικές ομάδες η διάθεση για μια αναδρομή στις πυρηνικές φαντασιακές κοινωνικές σημασίες χάρη στις οποίες αναπαράγεται και δικαιολογείται η κυριαρχία τους. Φυσικά, οι συνθήκες κρίσης δημιουργούνται όταν η αναπαραγωγή των βασικών πολιτικών, οικονομικών και πολιτισμικών παραμέτρων του ετερόνομου κοινωνικού παραδείγματος είναι πλέον αδύνατη, υπό το βάρος μιας αμετάκλητης αλλαγής των «αντικειμενικών» οικονομικών παραγόντων, μιας ενδεχόμενης ανατροπής του συσχετισμού δυνάμεων ανάμεσα στις τάξεις, ή της ρήξης με το ηγεμονικό πολιτισμικό παράδειγμα λόγω μιας αλλαγής που επέρχεται στις υποκειμενικές συνθήκες.

imageSobre la solidaridad del proceso social en Rojava: entrevista a un militante del DAF Feb 25 by BrunoL 0 comments

Nota preliminar: Rojava es una región autónoma en el Kurdistán Sirio, está compuesto por tres cantones ubicados al norte y al noroeste de Siria y que no se hallan contiguos: Efrin, Cezire y Kobane. La mayoría de la población aquí es kurda, pero hay gente de un sinnúmero de religiones y perteneciente a una importante diversidad de etnias. Durante la “Primavera Árabe” del 2011, cuando los ojos del mundo posaban sobre Egipto y Túnez, se desató la guerra civil en Siria. Un año después, ya en el verano del 2012, la autoridad de Bashar al-Assad y su gobierno perdió terreno en el Rojava. En lugar de aliarse a los rebeldes sirios, los kurdos decidieron optar por su autonomía, y declararon la libertad e independencia de su región de todo poder (Estado o Nación); optaron por el autogobierno. Si en algún momento los kurdos lucharon por su propio Estado, ahora lo hacen por el Confederalismo Democrático, un programa donde predomina la democracia directa desde las bases, la autonomía de gobierno, la equidad de género, la economía de cooperación y otros importantes pilares como la ecología y la cooperación federativa. En la actualidad, la Guerra Civil Siria ha planteado dos frentes contra los kurdos, por un lado el gobierno sirio y por otro los rebeldes extremistas en la zona (en especial el Estado Islámico); la vecina Turquía es hostil al proceso de Rojava e Iraq representa un riesgo latente debido al empuje de la coalición occidental y árabe contra el Estado Islámico en ese país. A continuación presentamos una entrevista realizada por Bruno Lima en enero del presente año a un militante de la organización turca Acción Revolucionaria Anarquista. Hemos alterado levemente el texto para insertar notas al final y permitir que la lectura sea más fluida, así como también para comprender la naturaleza de ciertas organizaciones que podrían ser ajenas al lector.

Su presencia es un reconocimiento explícito de que el conflicto colombiano no es un conflicto meramente interno, sino de carácter hemisférico, en el cual EEUU ha clavado sus garras desde antes del surgimiento de las guerrillas.
