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.

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

Diversas organizaciones libertarias del estado español, de carácter político o específico, han lanzado un manifiesto conjunto por este Primero de Mayo de 2016. Se trata de varias organizaciones de militantes cuya visión libertario o revolucionario pasa por construir poder popular para poder llegar a una sociedad socialista y libertaria. Es uno de los primeros pasos de un largo camino que se abre en la Península Ibérica.

Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε ένα κίνημα της εργατικής τάξης, που να εκτείνεται πέρα ​​από τα σύνορα και να μην αφήνει έδαφος στις καπιταλιστικές κυβερνήσεις που δεν έχουν καμία λύση για τα διεθνή προβλήματα, παρά μόνο τον πόλεμο. Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε την επανάσταση των εργατών και την ανατροπή του καπιταλισμού. Και μόνο τότε θα μπορέσουμε να οικοδομήσουμε έναν κόσμο ελευθερίας, ισότητας και αλληλεγγύης - έναν κόσμο σε ειρήνη.

imageO 1° de Maio em meio à crise final do projeto “Democrático-Popular” May 03 by Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira 0 comments

Os 14 anos de hegemonia do projeto democrático popular chegam a sua saturação final. Nestes últimos anos a esquerda não governista esteve em meio a uma luta para conformar uma alternativa a esse bloco. Cada setor, cada organização concebeu, a sua maneira, o que seria essa alternativa. Mas no fim, não foi capaz de presenciar alguma proposta que disputasse com o bloco governista nas lutas populares. Isso, por sua vez, não tirou de cena o surgimento de inúmeras experiências que transbordam ensinamentos e avanços difíceis de medir precisamente. Das “greves selvagens” e das revoltas nas obras do PAC, passando pelas jornadas de junho em 2013, a luta por moradia nas grandes cidades e a recente onda de ocupações de escolas por estudantes secundaristas em São Paulo, Goiânia, Rio de Janeiro e Belém mostram que em meio às trevas da ofensiva reacionária, também vai se afirmando uma nova geração de lutadores e lutadoras. Uma geração que não se formou pelas estruturas tradicionais de luta e organização que a esquerda construiu nas últimas décadas, por isso mesmo, uma geração refratária aos métodos e à cultura destas estruturas.

textWhy May Day? An African Working Class Perspective May 02 by Leroy Maisiri 0 comments

In South Africa, the black working class majority is gripped by the rough hands of its ruling class, made up of a cold combination of black state elites and white capitalist elites, who choke the very life out of her. blazing but blinded. In days like these it is important to remember our heroes, our champions of past years, to remember the stories of Ma Josie Mpama, who wanted nothing more, than to see the working class mature, to explode like landmines under the feet of the oppressive system that has spent centuries trampling over us. The other day, while deep in thought, I felt the room grow more still, filled with clarity. The voices of Lucy Parsons, Josie Mpama and other heroes pierced my very being. Their voices reminded me of the dream, the obtainable goal. To remember that we, the working class billions, can be more than what we are now, that we can awake, from our half-life, that we can be more than the shares and stocks that the system has nailed to our backs.

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.
