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.

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

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

Σε αυτό το πλαίσιο απαιτείται οι αυτοοργανωμένες και αλληλέγγυες δομές, με την σημαντική πρακτική τους συμβολή αλλά και με το σεβασμό που δείχνουν όχι μόνο σε κάθε ζωή αλλά και στην ελευθερία, θα πρέπει να σταθούν ως αντίπαλο δέος. Όχι μόνο ολόπλευρη υλική στήριξη από όλες της κινηματικές δυνάμεις αλλά και η διαμόρφωση μιας πολιτικής που, ξεπερνώντας τον κλειστό και αυτοαναφορικό λόγο, να μπει δυναμικά στο προσκήνιο για να κυριαρχήσει.

imageSiria: quale destino per i Curdi nei negoziati di Ginevra? Feb 10 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

La settimana scorsa si doveva tenere a Ginevra una riunione nel quadro dei colloqui indiretti tra il governo siriano e le varie fazioni dell’esercito di “opposizione” raggruppate sotto il nome di Alto Comitato per i negoziati. L’inviato speciale delle Nazioni Unite per la crisi siriana, Staffan de Mistura, ha deciso di rinviare l’incontro al 25 febbraio. Curiosamente, il partito curdo PYD, che è, tra l’altro, un attore politico chiave nel futuro della Siria e l’unica forza che ha combattuto lo Stato islamico sul terreno, è stato escluso dalla riunione. È paradossale che esso venga boicottato come membro della riunione, mentre i media occidentali spesso presentato i kurdi come “amici” dell’Occidente, facendo attenzione a non parlare degli obiettivi politici di questo movimento ed a limitare la loro simpatia ad immagini semi-erotizzate di giovani donne armati di fucili.

El día 6 de Febrero la organización fascista PEGIDA, grupo anti-musulmán que ha venido creciendo en toda Europa, organizó manifestaciones continentales para agitar sentimientos racistas, xenófobos y anti-humanitarios. Marcharon en otras partes de Europa. Pero en Dublín se les envió un mensaje claro. Acá no hay espacio político para el fascismo. Este mensaje se dijo con pedagogía y con fuerza, con argumentos y con determinación.

imageSíria: O que aconteceu com os curdos nas 'negociações' de Genebra? Feb 08 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Na semana passada estava prevista uma reunião em Genebra, no marco das negociações indiretas entre o governo sírio e as facções da 'oposição' armada reunidas no grupo divulgado pelo nome tonitruante de Alto Comitê para as Negociações. O enviado da ONU para a crise síria, Staffan de Mistura, decidiu adiar a reunião para o dia 25 de fevereiro. Curiosamente porém, foi excluído daquela reunião o partido dos curdos, o PYD, o qual, dentre outras coisas, é ator político importantíssimo no futuro da Síria e a única força que combateu em solo contra o 'Estado Islâmico'. É paradoxal que se boicote a participação do PYD, quando a mídia-empresa ocidental tão frequentemente vendeu a imagem dos curdos como os "amigos" do ocidente, cuidando atentamente de esconder os reais objetivos políticos desse movimento, e limitando sua simpatia a uma imagem semierotizada de mulheres jovens armadas com fuzis.

Il devait se tenir la semaine dernière à Genève une réunion dans le cadre des négociations indirectes entre le gouvernement syrien et les diverses factions de l' « opposition »armée regroupées sous le nom ronflant de Haut Comité des négociations. L'envoyé spécial de l'ONU pour la crise syrienne, Staffan de Mistura, a décidé de reporter la réunion au 25 février. Curieusement, le parti kurde PYD, qui est, entre autres, un acteur politique essentiel de l'avenir de la Syrie et la seule force qui ait combattu l’État Islamique sur le terrain, a été exclu de cette réunion. Il est paradoxal qu'il soit boycotté dans le cadre de cette réunion, alors que les médias occidentaux nous ont souvent présenté les Kurdes comme des « amis » de l'Occident, tout en prenant bien soin de ne pas trop parler des objectifs politiques de ce mouvement et en limitant leur sympathie à un image semi-érotisée de jeunes femmes armées de fusils.
