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 17:37 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

Hace algunas semanas Bachelet envió el proyecto de ley sobre aborto terapéutico. La iniciativa causó diversas reacciones entre la derecha y miembros conservadores de la Nueva Mayoría. El ejemplo más triste fue el protagonizado por el diputado DC Pablo Lorenzini quien afirmó que algunas violaciones se producían porque las mujeres habían bebido unos “traguitos de más”, por su parte la Iglesia quiere impedir su aprobación a toda costa. Y como siempre poco se ha escuchado la voz de las mujeres. A continuación reproducimos una columna escrita por la Alzada publicado por Solidaridad el año 2013.

Ce grand projet inutile serait une catastrophe en termes de destruction de la nature et de ravages écologiques. En effet, certains tunnels seront creusés sur des gisements d'uranium et d'amiante, qui auront pour effet de répandre des poussières de ces minerais dans l'atmosphère de la vallée. D'autre part, de nombreuses expropriations sont prévues pour la construction de la voie ferrée, notamment de terres agricoles. [English]

La lotta unitaria dei comitati popolari dei villaggi e degli israeliani di "Anarchici contro il muro" è iniziata circa 12 anni fa nel campo di Mas'ha. Le lotte unitarie si sono sviluppate in vari villaggi con successo alterno, ma solo la lotta del villaggio di Bil'in si è fatta persistente anno dopo anno tenendo alta la bandiera della lotta popolare non-armata e diventando il punto di riferimento per l'attenzione e l'ispirazione dei Palestinesi di tutta di Cisgiordania e di migliaia di attivisti internazionali che si sono uniti a noi per brevi periodi (alcuni anche più a lungo) diffondendo le notizie e la lotta una volta tornati a casa. Anche alcune migliaia di attivisti della variegata sinistra radicale israeliana sono stati a Bil'in almeno una volta aiutandoci ad impedire l'emarginazione della resistenza popolare palestinese.

Neste texto de 1925, Nestor Makhno discute conceitualmente o anarquismo e o relaciona à sua época. Trata-se, entretanto, de uma tradução revisada, que soluciona um grande problema de outras traduções. Por algum erro, não sabemos se de Alexandre Skirda – que organizou o livro de Nestor Makhno, "La Lutte Contre L’État et Autres Écrits", por meio do qual este texto foi difundido – ou da editora que publicou o livro, o fato é que os artigos “Anarquismo e Nossos Tempos” e “Nossa Organização” tiveram parte importante de seu conteúdo invertida. Praticamente toda a segunda metade do primeiro texto foi colocada no segundo e vice-versa. Nesta versão, que compõe o conjunto de textos relacionados ao debate da "Plataforma", a questão foi resolvida, a partir da orientação do Nestor Makhno Archive, que endentemos ser adequada.

Cuando la Casa Blanca anunció la reanudación de las relaciones diplomáticas con La Habana, algunos medios de comunicación brasileños pidieron que hiciera un análisis. Me acerqué al tema desde un punto de vista y no de forma ideológica geoestratégica. Hago aquí un resumen de esta contribución, entendiendo que la cuestión sigue abierta. El acercamiento gradual entre los EE.UU. y Cuba fue anunciado en cuarto de la tarde, 17 de diciembre, con la debida solemnidad. Al mismo tiempo, el presidente estadounidense Barack Obama y el comandante en jefe (con estado general), Raúl Castro, informaron al mundo y especialmente a América Latina que las relaciones entre los dos países se someterán a una distensión progresiva. Hay varias líneas posibles de análisis para discutir el caso.
