The General Election in New Zealand/Aotearoa took place at the end of September and so its all over and done with. More accurately, the ritual of deciding who will politically rule over us has ended. The election of our bosses in the workplace never happened. The end result in both cases is the same. We are faced with a ruling class that feels emboldened to attack workers when it senses opportunities to do so. The latest piece of ammunition the government is preparing to lob our way comes in the form of a bland sounding piece of legislation, the Employment Relations Amendment Bill. This law was delayed prior to the election, due to the resignation of the now ex-MP criminal John Banks, but will be enacted within the next 100 days. What is the bill about? read full story / add a comment

nce again violence has flared across Belfast and other parts of the north as protests continue around the flags issue. The latest disturbances come as Stormont Assembly leaders, Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness meet to discuss another wave of street protests, and their concerns about the damaging effect it is having on the economy leading up to the busiest shopping period of the calendar. But as each issued a separate statement calling for protests to come to an end, loyalist gangs flexed their muscles, blocking off streets and hijacking cars. read full story / add a comment

Around 50 people attended a lunch time vigil today organised by the Belfast Trade and District Council. A range of political organisations and unions attended including the Independent Workers Union, the WSM and Organise! During the rally one speaker from the council also referred to the police being workers too. This will provide little comfort to working people on the receiving end of state violence and terror. As our comrades from the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front note, ‘The role of the police is to repress and silence the working class and poor. This problem cannot be fixed by commissions or enquiries – as some people think. Ask the family of Andries Tatane. It cannot be changed by elections. Remember: Sharpeville 1960, Soweto 1976, Uitenhague 1985, Michael Makhabane in 2000, SAMWU workers in 2009, Andries Tatane in 2011 … Marikana 2012. At least 25 protestors and strikers were killed from 2000, before Marikana.’ read full story / add a comment

Αυτή η χρονιά σηματοδοτεί την 76 επέτειο του «Ισπανικού Εμφυλίου Πολέμου», που είναι μία από τις πιο παρεξηγημένες συγκρούσεις του 20ού αιώνα. Για μερικούς, ιδίως εκείνους που μένουν προσκολημμένοι σε μια παραδοσιακή άποψη της ιστορίας, ο πόλεμος ήταν μόνο μεταξύ των δυνάμεων του φασισμού και εκείνων που υπεράσπιζαν τη δημοκρατικά εκλεγμένη κυβέρνηση των Ρεπουμπλικάνων. read full story / add a comment

The National Conference of the Campaign Against the Household and Water Taxes this Saturday will be making some key decisions that will determine the future success of the campaign. The ultimate objective of our campaign should be to ensure that everyone who gets involved in it can have an equal input into our decision-making. This will make for a more democratic and far more efficient Campaign which large numbers of people will feel direct ownership of. That will mean a far stronger Campaign and one capable of winning. On Saturday we will be distributing this text which explains the case for direct democracy as a leaflet to those attending the conference. read full story / add a comment

Déployement de police anti-émeute à Manchester
irlande / grande-bretagne / crime, prison et punition / opinion / analyse Wednesday August 24, 2011 18:37 byAidan, Andrew & Dermot - Workers Solidarity Movement (WSM)   image 1 image
Le meurtre de Mark Duggan par la police a engendré quatre nuits d’émeutes dans toute l’Angleterre. Le déclencheur immédiat en a été le meurtre lui-même, mais aussi la goujaterie de la police envers la famille et les amis de Mark. Cependant, les émeutes ont rapidement pris une dimension plus large, exprimant une colère et une aliénation plus générales, colère qui trop souvent a été mal ciblée, frappant les cibles les plus proches et à portée de main. Il y eut par conséquent de grandes destructions de biens, dans des quartiers déjà déshérités, et des attaques anti-sociales contre des riverains. Malgré ces aspects, les racines des émeutes résident dans les conditions économiques et politiques qui régissent ces zones, non pas dans la “piètre éducation” des parents ou dans la “criminalité aveugle”. Ces conditions ont été créées par cette même élite de politiciens et d’hommes d’affaire qui en appellent maintenant à un retour à la normalité et à la répression. Les émeutes surgissent à un moment particulier, qui voit le capitalisme atteint d’une crise profonde. En effet, les émeutes ont eu lieu au même moment qu’un nouveau krach dans les marchés mondiaux. Les deux événements se sont tenus la dragée haute dans les Unes des medias. Il ne s’agit pas d’une coïncidence, car le krach et les coupes budgétaires destinées à rejeter son coût sur les épaules des gens ordinaires, ont non seulement fait monter en flèche le chômage, mais aussi saigné à blanc les services publics. Le montant total des destructions provoquées par les émeutes est estimé à 200 millions de £, chiffre dont l’insignifiance pâlit à côté des destructions de richesses causées par les marchés boursiers.

On February 22nd at just before 1pm, a devastating earthquake, measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale, and just 10km deep, hit Christchurch, the second biggest city in New Zealand. So far over 160 people have been officially declared dead and that toll is expected to rise to over 200. The earthquake came less than 6 months after a destructive 7.1 magnitude shock, which claimed no lives but saw thousands of homes and buildings damaged or destroyed. read full story / add a comment

Además al terciarizar la ejecución de las políticas públicas ha generado altos niveles de subcontratación en el área.

The documentary Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre (2014, Nickos Ventouras) narrates one of the “bleakest and blackest” chapters in American labor history, the Ludlow Massacre.
A 101 years earlier, on April 20, 1914, in Ludlow, Colorado, USA, a strike for basic labor rights by exploited miners and their families, mostly immigrants, was violently ended by state militia. In the fight, the strikers’ tent colony was machine-gunned and burned to the ground, leaving over twenty people dead, including women and children.

Το παρακάτω κείμενο είναι μια περικοπή από τον τόμο που κυκλοφόρησε από τις εκδόσεις «Ελεύθερος Τύπος» «Φεντεραλισμός Σοσιαλισμός Αντιθεολογισμός» του Μ. Μπακούνιν. Είναι, όπως φαίνεται και από τον τίτλο που επιλέχθηκε από μια φράση στο κείμενο, κομμάτι του κεφαλαίου για τον Αντιθεολογισμό. Ίσως είναι πράγματα που, θα πει κάποιος, πως έχουν ειπωθεί ή πως η επίκληση της επιστήμης έναντι της θρησκείας είναι χιλιοχρησιμοποιημένη στην τελευταία φάση εξέλιξης του καπιταλισμού. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, η φιλοσοφική αξία του κειμένου είναι αδιαμφισβήτητη και θα έλεγα πως σε καιρούς που ο σκοταδισμός επιστρέφει με ταχύτητα και μάλιστα, σε καιρούς που η αλματώδης τεχνολογική εξέλιξη του καπιταλισμού τον ντύνει με έναν μανδύα -ψευδο- προοδευτικότητας, η πολεμική, και κυρίως, η λογική της πολεμικής ενάντια στους παλιούς συμμάχους της εξουσίας, είναι περισσότερο από ποτέ αναγκαία.
