Like the fading sun of the Summer, there is now little time left to enjoy the last days of Eurostasis we have been enveloped in of late. The relative calm that descended on the Eurocrisis, with the brief exception of the Cyrpus panic in March, is coming to an end with the German elections this coming Sunday. read full story / add a comment

Sabato 16 marzo i ciprioti si sono svegliati con la notizia di essere in procinto di essere derubati. Con un agguato pre-programmato e pianificato per concidere con un weekend di vacanza delle banche locali, i burocrati dell'Eurozona hanno minacciato di bancarotta il sistema bancario cipriota facendo paventare un ritiro immediato del supporto di liquidità da parte della BCE.

This Saturday morning Cypriot people woke up to the news that they were about to be robbed. In a pre-planned ambush scheduled to coincide with a local bank holiday weekend, Eurozone apparatchiks threatened to bankrupt the Cypriot banking system by immediate withdrawal of the ECB liquidity support.

The rain is pouring, Summer's over and the Eurozone crisis is back from his hols. Timed nicely to coincide with the brutal Spanish riot police attack on the indignados protest outside the Madrid parliament, yesterday's statement by the remaining triple-AAA rated "Nordic Front" of Germany, Finland and the Netherlands, has put the cat back amongst the pigeons. read full story / add a comment

Come un incidente d'auto al rallentatore, l'inarrestabile crisi dell'Eurozona ha toccato un altro punto di crisi. Le elezioni in Francia ed in Grecia, le elezioni tedesche in Renania Settentrionale-Vestfalia e le nuove elezioni in Grecia il prossimo mese, hanno portato i sintomi di sofferenza della Eurozona a livelli di panico. Sull'intera situazione grava lo spettro di una morte annunciata: un funerale per l'icona dell'euro come un partito che nessuno vuole abbandonare. [English] read full story / add a comment

Mentre si spengono le fiamme dell'ultimo round di scontri in Grecia, l'incapacità dei principali media di raccontare la storia dell'attuale crisi dell'Eurozona ci lascia in mezzo all'oscurità proprio come un attimo prima che le molotov illuminassero i TG della sera. read full story / add a comment

Ed eccoci alla fine dell'estate. E' tempo per i politici e per i burocrati dell'Eurozona di far ritorno ai propri uffici e di dare un'occhiata alle cose da fare. Per la stessa ragione è tempo anche per noi, che siamo interessati a lottare contro l'Europa della Austerity, fare il punto della situazione. [English] read full story / add a comment

The big bad ECB wolf is a-huffing and a-puffing but the first of the three little pigs is showing no signs of surrendering just yet. And behind the spectacle of the Greek populace standing up against its government and the core EU powers, lurks a recent historical shadow - a spectre is haunting Europe, the spectre of Yugoslavia. read full story / add a comment

In Irlanda, le famiglie stanno facendo i conti con l'imposizione di altri e più drastici tagli dei servizi pubblici, dei posti di lavoro e dei redditi. Ma occorre rendersi conto che dietro questa logica brutale non c'è il FMI guidato da Washington, bensì l'Eurozona. [English] read full story / add a comment

Slaughter in Gaza. It's in the papers, on the radio, on the TV news. We stare numbed at the images of horror while eating our dinner. And then the spokespeople, one after another. Hamas are blaming Israel. Israel and the US are blaming Hamas. The Europeans and the rest of the world are blaming the US. One one thing they are all agreed, it's not their fault, the blood is on somebody else's hands. Meanwhile bloodied parents stagger through the streets of Gaza bearing the shattered bodies of their children. read full story / add a comment

La historia oficial cuenta que los orígenes de la actual crisis recae en el colapso del mercado de créditos subprime norteamericano, es decir, créditos otorgados a personas pobres que no pueden pagar sus hipotecas. Aunque éste pudo haber sido el evento detonante de la crisis, cabe subrayar que no su causal real. read full story / add a comment

The official story is that the origins of the current crisis lie in the collapse of the US subprime mortgage market - i.e. poor people not paying their mortgages. Although this may have been the trigger event, it is not the real cause. The real cause lies in pyramids not houses. Specifically the enormous debt pyramid built up by the Western countries read full story / add a comment

Imagine that, leaving the pub on Saturday night, you find a fight outside. The Gardai turn up, grab a load of people, including you, and drag you off to the station, and throw in a beating in the back of the van. Next morning you are taken to an interview room and an old garda gives you a cup of tea, apologises for the “mix-up” earlier and says you can go as soon as you’ve signed a 6 page statement he’s prepared for you. read full story / add a comment

This is the first part of a series of articles investigating the capitalist financial markets from a critical perspective. With such a large topic it is tricky finding a route into the subject and a plan of enquiry. The chosen road is to start with a look at the financial markets, particularly focusing on the mechanics of some of the instruments that have led to a momentous transformation of the workings of global financial markets in the most recent decades. read full story / add a comment

Migliaia di persone vengono stipate nelle carceri, decine di migliaia hanno perso il loro posto di lavoro. [Türkçe] [English] [Ελληνικά]

Ο εχθρός των ναζί είναι το εργατικό και κοινωνικό κίνημα που παλεύει για δικαιοσύνη. Ας μην διαψεύσουμε τους φόβους τους ούτε στιγμή. Δεν φτάνει στο δρόμο να κατεβαίνουν οι 200-300 ενεργοί πολίτες για να πνίξουν το φίδι. Χρειάζεται να φτιαχτεί ένα ακηδεμόνευτο «από τα κάτω» οριζόντιο μαχητικό αντιφασιστικό κίνημα, στην εργασία, στα σχολεία, τις γειτονιές κ.α που όχι μόνο θα φράζει το δρόμο στους φασίστες, αλλά θα ανοίγει γενικευμένα το δρόμο της αντίστασης και της ανυπακοής στις προσταγές των “από πάνω”.

Los desalojos en el barrio Nuevo Jerusalén comenzaron sin garantías para las 175 familias que serán desalojadas, el Estado encarnado en las alcaldías municipales de Bello y Medellín no tiene una propuesta clara para reubicar a estas familias, solo han brindado un arriendo temporal de “3 meses con posibilidad de prórroga”, una solución en el aire para las familias que desde hace más de 10 años están construyendo su hogar, su casa, gentes que fueron desplazadas y que tampoco tuvieron apoyo o garantías a su llegada a la ciudad. Hoy estos hogares construidos con esfuerzo están siendo convertidos en escombros.

This past week on January 11th, the body of Michael Israel, Sacramento organizer and late YPG volunteer, finally arrived in California from overseas. His journey back into the United States took over a month, and began in Syria with a ceremony and mourning procession to send him off. His California community has been awaiting his arrival, and organized a funeral procession of their own to welcome Michael home for the last time. Sacramento and Bay Area activists, individuals from the California Kurdish community, and Michael’s friends and family all came together to accompanied him from the San Francisco Airport to Lodi, his hometown. Over fifty people took part in the long-distance procession, traveling in around 20 cars, vans, and buses festooned with YPG and anti-fascist flags, flowers, and pictures of Michael.

Κατά την περίοδο 1860-1870 μέσα από την συζήτηση και την πολεμική κριτική ανάμεσα στους Μαρξ και Μπακούνιν ήρθαν στην επιφάνεια του εργατικού κινήματος δύο διαφορετικές ερμηνείες του κοινωνικού μετασχηματισμού, του τι είναι πράγματι κυριαρχία και ποιες συνθήκες είναι απαραίτητες για την απελευθέρωση του ανθρώπου. Η έντονη αντίθεση ανάμεσα στις δύο μεγάλες κινηματικές προσωπικότητες είχε τις βάσεις της σε θεμελιώδεις θεωρητικές διαφορές, που ακόμη και σήμερα συνεχίζουν να υφίστανται. Αυτός ο διαξιφισμός ήταν και η πρώτη αιτία για τη διάλυση της Πρώτης Διεθνούς και που αργότερα στιγμάτισε τις πιο ριζοσπαστικές τάσεις, αναρχικές και κομμουνιστικές, του διεθνούς εργατικού κινήματος.
