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

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

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

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

Il 25 aprile 1945 il Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale Alta Italia proclamava l'insurrezione in tutti i territori italiani ancora occupati dai nazifascisti.
Nel giro di 6 giorni, quasi tutta l'Italia settentrionale era stata liberata dai partigiani.
Così il Primo Maggio si festeggiarono contemporaneamente la liberazione e la giornata internazionale dei lavoratori,

textMobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai contre la Loi Travail 13:50 Wed 27 Apr by Relations Extérieures de la CGA 0 comments

Depuis plus d'un mois et demi, de larges secteurs de la société sont mobilisés contre la loi travail, et l'opinion publique rejette très massivement ce nouveau coup porté aux travailleur-ses.
Plus d'un million de manifestant-e-s sont descendu-e-s dans la rue lors de la mobilisation interprofessionnelle du 31 mars, à laquelle s'ajoutent des mobilisations dans la jeunesse ou encore la multiplication des Nuits Debout. Ce mouvement de fond exprime un ras-le-bol et catalyse l'exaspération liée aux attaques incessantes contre les salarié-e-s pour le plus grand bénéfice du patronat.
Alors qu'au mois de mai, le texte de loi sera débattu au Parlement, l'enjeu est d'augmenter massivement le rapport de force en faveur des travailleur-ses, chômeur-ses et de la jeunesse pour que ce projet de régression sociale soit abandonné. Les prochaines mobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai doivent marquer un tournant pour construire un blocage économique qui impose au gouvernement de reculer.

If we want peace, we must follow the example of the workers and worker-soldiers who ended WWI. We must build a working class movement which spans across frontiers and cuts the ground out from under the capitalist governments that have no solution for international problems but war. We must make a workers' revolution and overthrow capitalism. And only then will we be able to build a world of liberty, equality and solidarity – a world at peace.

Συχνά αναφέρεται ότι κατά βάση η υποχρεωτική στράτευση, ανεξαρτήτως κράτους, νομιμοποιείται κοινωνικά από τις εκάστοτε κυρίαρχες ιδεολογίες, τις πολεμικές και θρησκευτικές ιδεοληψίες, την πολιτική και κρατική διαχείριση και τους εθνικισμούς. Αυτό που αναφέρεται λιγότερο συχνά είναι ότι όλα τα παραπάνω, και φυσικά η κοινωνική νομιμοποίηση της υποχρεωτικής στράτευσης, αποδυναμώνονται -αν δεν απονομιμοποιούνται- από τις κοινωνικές αντιστάσεις και τις αρνήσεις των καταπιεσμένων. Ειδικότερα, από τις αρνήσεις στράτευσης, και πόσο μάλλον από αυτές που δημοσιοποιούνται και πληθαίνουν ως ανοιχτές και ορατές κοινωνικές ρηγματώσεις.

imagePrimer de Maig 2016, dia de la classe treballadora May 01 by Embat 0 comments

La forma en la qual es configura i s’organitza el capital al segle XXI ha suposat una gran transformació que tendeix a formes més globalitzades, enxarxades, descentralitzades, altament diversificades i disperses que els moviments sindical i social encara no han pogut contrarestar efectivament. La particularitat que vivim al sud d’Europa és la terciarització de la nostra economia on l’equivalent a les antigues fàbriques fabrils són els calls centers, l’hostaleria, les cadenes de menjar ràpid, les empreses de logística i altres formes d’activitat econòmica no vinculades a la producció. La indústria que queda a Catalunya perd la seva centralitat i es troba financiaritzada. És evident, que el model de conflicte laboral i cultura sindical heretat de la transició ha quedat completament desbordat per aquesta tendència i la reestructuració constant del capitalisme.

The labour movement in Melbourne, though far declined from its former strength, has neither totally given up the ghost nor been allowed quarter by its enemies. Unions campaign for health and safety, against insecure work and against the use of temporary work visas to undermine labour standards. The campaigns, though, are undermined by the conservatism and timidity of the union officials, their support for the Labor Party and their nationalist focus on “Aussie jobs”, which interferes with building the necessary solidarity between local workers and super-exploited migrant workers. Meanwhile, the capitalists are proceeding with legislation to destroy the construction workers' union (CFMEU) and bring the entire union movement under close State supervision.

L’heure est la mobilisation générale contre la loi «Travail» mais aussi contre les politiques d’austérité, la casse des services publics, les attaques contre l’assurance-chômage, les cadeaux aux classes possédantes... Maintenant que nous sommes debout, qu’ils nous rendent tout!
Lycées, facs, jeunesse: Valls a essayé de désamorcer la colère avec quelques mesures qui ne changent rien à la casse du Code du travail que promet la loi El Khomri. Celle-ci va inciter le patronat à abuser des heures supplémentaires bon marché plutôt que d’embaucher. A l’arrivée: davantage de chômage et de précarité, davantage de salarié.e.s épuisé.e.s par des journées à rallonge.

Sono stati decenni in cui quel fascismo, sconfitto militarmente, è riuscito a inserirsi ed a riprodursi all’interno dello Stato e della criminalità organizzata, fino a compiere stragi di popolo per spargere il terrore necessario ad arrestare le lotte operaie e studentesche.
Sono stati decenni in cui il capitalismo italiano ha potuto riprendere l’accumulazione di profitti, imponendo al paese dure condizioni salariali e normative.
Ma l’operazione di riduzione a memorialistica e di depotenziamento del 25 aprile e del 1 Maggio, portata avanti dalle istituzioni statali e da organizzazioni sindacali collaborative e rinunciatarie, non è riuscita a distruggere l’antifascismo ed a falsificarne la memoria, non è riuscita a piegare le lotte dei lavoratori e la loro capacità organizzativa.

28 de abril de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Introdução

O Brasil vive um momento bastante interessante do ponto de vista analítico e desesperador para quem deseja transformar a sociedade brasileira do ponto de vista igualitário. Seria uma ilusão não observar que estamos diante de um golpe de Estado consumado dentro dos ritos formais de nosso arcabouço jurídico-institucional. Como vem sendo afirmado a partir de dois pensadores contemporâneos bastante lúcidos na crítica por esquerda – Vladimir Safatle – e por centro-esquerda – caso do hoje fundamental, Jessé Souza – o momento aponta o final do pacto de Golbery do Couto e Silva da abertura política e a meta estratégica é terminar a tarefa dos acordos de regulação social e os direitos avançados na Constituição de 1988. Para tanto, podemos passar pela aventura da direita (a que estava no governo até duas semanas atrás) e a da proponente do impeachment (a que estava na oposição formal), de um golpe com frágeis bases jurídicas e a derrota histórica para o processo de conciliação de classes, base do lulismo como estrutura de governo, pacto este que já fora operacionalizado por José Dirceu e executado pela hoje presidente Dilma Rousseff, quando a mesma substitui ao primeiro na pasta da Casa Civil, garante a consecução das obras do PAC e com isso assegura a reeleição de Lula em 2006.
