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

textPalestine-Israel,The joint struggle and the vicious Israeli transfer efforts 05:28 Wed 01 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Arkib (1948 Bedouins), Bil'in, Dahams (Ramla 1948 village), East Jerusalem (occupied 1967 mainly Sheikh Jarah, Shuafat, and the Bedouins of the region) Ma'asarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills - the main locations of the joint struggles the anarchists against the wall are involved in. As the Israeli pretending of striving for any kind of peace was exposed, the transfer efforts are intensified. It seems the hazards taking and gambling of Israel on the continuation of the occupation is increasing. The Israeli government count on the pro Israeli lobby of the US right and the strategic value of Israel in the present troubled time and recklessly disregard the mounting international pressure... though the Israeli officials and the public keep worrying in public about the economic and political pressures.

In Kurdistan, people are fighting against ISIS, “the procreated violence” given birth by capitalism and the states that start wars for their own benefits. ISIS, subcontractor of the states that pursue income strategies on the region, is attacking people while yelling “islamic state!” and “holy war, jihad!”. People are suffering from hunger and thirst, getting ill, getting injured; migrating ad dying. They are still fighting in that struggle for existence. People are fighting not for the schemes and strategies around meeting tables, not for income, but for their freedom.

textPalestine-Israel: The joint struggle confront the transfer efforts of the Israeli settler colonialis... 15:49 Sun 21 Sep by Ilan S. 0 comments

Though Israel failed in its last open assault on the Gaza Strip, it still succeed in its transfer efforts. The drowning of a refugee ship with 450 mainly Gaza people reflect the partial success of Israel transfer efforts that for the never ended efforts since 1948. The siege on Gaza join the pressure on both Palestinians within the 1948 borders and that of the 1967. The big masses were driven out during the 1948 and 1967 wars, but efforts continued with all means possible. Some expelled by force some were moved within the border as pressure to "voluntary transfer". Within the 1967 borders, the Israeli efforts are targeted on the villages and Bedouins living in area C where the joint struggle to resist it is mainly focused in the South of Hebron Hills. And the joint struggle in Arkib, Dahamsh (1948 borders), and Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah (East Jerusalem) continue "as usual".

imageLa resistencia palestina: Símbolo de la lucha contra la opresión colonial Oct 01 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

La más reciente ofensiva israelí en contra del pueblo palestino, que duró casi dos meses, es quizás una de las acciones más letales en la larga historia de violencias que acumula la entidad sionista sobre su lomo. Más de 2.000 muertos, al menos una cuarta parte de ellos menores de edad, masacrados con bombas, metralla y fósforo blanco que han sido arrojados de manera deliberada sobre la población civil inerme en la Franja de Gaza, la cual se refugió en hospitales, escuelas, oficinas de la ONU, mientras muchos otros han sido destrozados durmiendo en sus propios hogares. Sin embargo, aparte de estas cobardes atrocidades, Israel se ha demostrado impotente en sus dos objetivos centrales: no ha podido destruir la red de túneles mediante los cuales los palestinos en Gaza pueden burlar a duras penas el bloqueo absoluto y medieval impuesto; tampoco ha podido desbaratar la capacidad militar de la resistencia palestina.

It's official, extremist firebrand Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of ISIS, will play the new bearded bogeyman. It's official, he didn’t loot the banks for gold but is in fact being paid by our friends, the good ol’ Gulf petro-monarchs. It's official, we are being frogmarched back into the 'kill the bogeyman' script. It's official, none of this is happening… "officially".

imageCrisis and Revolt Sep 28 by Wayne Price 0 comments

Liberals and progressive forces support the Democratic Party in elections, even though humanity is facing a number of interconnected threats and nightmarish catastrophes: economic, ecological/climate, and others. Democratic liberals, while perhaps the "lesser evil" to the Republican reactionaries, have no solutions to the objective dangers which threaten society with great suffering and destruction. The only real alternative is popular mass struggle or defeat--socialist-anarchism or catastrophes.
