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

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

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

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

L'1 gennaio del 1994 in Chiapas le masse innalzarono la bandiera della ribellione giusto dopo che il mondo capitalista aveva celebrato il suo trionfo sulle rivoluzioni del 20° secolo e si accingeva a lanciare la globalizzazione neoliberista a livello mondiale. Ma la lotta è proseguita con nuove modalità. I sorprendenti sviluppi nella Rojava, in cui le principali potenze imperialiste si trovano a dare sostegno aereo ai Curdi antiautoritari ed anticapitalisti di Siria, sono come uno stormo di passeri che segnano l'arrivo della primavera. In questo imminente cambiamento, si sviluppa il panico delle classi dirigenti sioniste israeliane di fronte alla veloce avanzata della campagna B.D.S.... Non possiamo misurare il contributo di ciascuna lotta al cambiamento, ma sembra che una quota importante spetti alle migliaia di attivisti internazionali che hanno condiviso con noi la lotta unitaria non-armata contro il muro della separazione, contro gli insediamenti e contro l'occupazione.

Today, arriving Suruç (Pîrsus), just before leaving for Kobane, these young people made a press release in front of the Amara Culture Center in Suruç (Pîrsus).

As frases são sempre as mesmas: "Populismo fiscal, suporte do Estado e fraude política a caminho"....assistimos a teleconferência apregoando o Manual do perfeito idiota daqueles que nos xingam de idiotas latino-americanos sendo aplicado.

Assistindo o programa Globonews Painel (deste sábado 25 de julho de 2015), cuja bancada era composta por dois economistas vinculados a consultorias privadas e um colega da ciência política igualmente vinculado a outra consultoria, me dei conta que há um tema de fundo nesta crise política. No primeiro mandato de Dilma, o ministro Guido Mantega de fato tentou uma inflexão desenvolvimentista, mas sem uma base social mobilizada e tampouco a predisposição do partido de governo para confrontar a sangria desatada de mais de 40% do orçamento da União para a especulação da agiotagem rentista. No segundo turno de 2014, houve uma eleição plebiscitária cuja chapa vitoriosa aceitou o brete do rentismo e chamara um ministro da Fazenda que apoiara Armínio Fraga para tomar conta do caixa da 8a economia do mundo.

Το ζήτημα της ενδογενούς παραγωγικής ανασυγκρότησης να είναι η επίθεσή μας. Διαπερνώντας, ταυτίζοντας, ακολουθώντας, προπορεύοντας ή συνοδοιπορώντας μαζί με άλλες, υπάρχουσες, πλευρές της αντίστασης, το σχέδιο για μια ενδογενή παραγωγική ανασυγκρότηση έχει κεντρική σημασία. Απαλλοτριώσεις, οικειοποιήσεις χώρων και δομών, κοινωνικά ιατρεία-φαρμακεία, πολιτιστικές και μορφωτικές δομές, συσσωματώσεις αντιστάσεων για δωρεάν παροχή αγαθών, αντιστάσεις εργαζομένων των σωματείων βάσης, αντιαναπτυξιακές πρωτοβουλίες σε επενδύσεις, αντιστάσεις στις εκποιήσεις στέγης, αντιστάσεις στην εκποίηση του δημόσιου πλούτου και των δημόσιων υποδομών, καθώς και άλλες μορφές άμυνας που θα αναπτυχθούν οφείλουν να επεξεργάζονται, προταγματικά, ένα σχέδιο αυτοδυναμίας της κοινωνίας στο να μπορέσει να εκβάλει όλο το χαμένο δημιουργικό της παραγωγικό ιστό.
