Durante le ultime elezioni, il multi-milionario John Key, leader del National Party di centro-destra, aveva dichiarato che avrebbe privatizzato parte delle aziende di stato, se fosse stato rieletto. Il suo principale avversario - ancorché perdente - era il Labour Party, all'epoca guidato dal poco carismatico Phil Goff, che era stato uno degli architetti delle privatizzazioni degli anni '80. Il National Party ha ora deciso di procedere nella realizzazione di questa minaccia. Toccherebbe ora al gruppo Mighty River Power, una compagnia che produce energia, oltre ad altri gioiellini di stato messi in palio per il futuro. Quali saranno gli effetti di queste grandi privatizzazioni? Quali opzioni hanno i lavoratori in Aotearoa/Nuova Zelanda? [English] read full story / add a comment

During the last election the centre-right National Party led by multi-millionaire John Key, said it would partly privatise certain state assets if re-elected. Its main losing rival was the Labour Party, at the time lead by the uncharismatic Phil Goff, who had been one of the architects of the privitisation push in the 1980s. National has now decided to press ahead with its threat. The power company Mighty River Power is the current focus of attention, with other goodies up for grabs in the future.

Once 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

According to the Irish Times Praveen Halappanavar, the husband of Savita said she had asked for a termination several times over a three day period only to be told "this is a catholic country." read full story / add a comment

Welcome to Irish Anarchist Review issue 5, produced by the Workers Solidarity Movement. In this magazine we look to explore theories, thoughts and ideas about political struggle. We set out to analyse where we are aiming for as a revolutionary movement and explore how we might get there. The purpose of ‘Irish Anarchist Review’ is to act as forum for a sharing of ideas about revolutionary struggle. Building a successful revolution demands genuine discussion, debate and sharing of ideas. We hope that the articles in here will help to stimulate discussion and provoke debate and perhaps even motivate some of our readers to respond with articles of your own. read full story / add a comment

Dar după 2 ani de Black Block-uri la toate summit-urile majore, şi-a atins ţelurile tactica Black Block-ului? Care este rolul anarhiştilor în mişcarea antiglobalizare?

Shell to Sea have released a very detailed report into the GSOC 'investigation' of the Garda at the center of the 'Corrib Cops Rape Tape' which first came to public attention one year ago today. The report reveals that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) engaged in spin and misinformation that misled the public over the Corrib ‘rape’ recording incident of March 2011 and undermined the case against Gardaí. The report details GSOC’s attempts to serve the interests of An Garda Síochána by undermining the women who made the recording public, while deflecting attention from the behaviour of Gardaí. The document was prepared by Shell to Sea with one of the women about whom the ‘rape’ comments were made and seven academics at NUI Maynooth. It has been made available online as a PDF and we are republishing it here: 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 by Aidan, 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.

Around 30 Republican prisoners continue to engage in a ‘dirty protest’ in Maghaberry prison over the failure of the Northern Ireland Administration and the Prison Officers Association to implement a facilitated agreement reached between all parties last August. This is part of a wider criminalisation policy to punish, brutalize and isolate prisoners which includes regular beatings and strip-searching - which remains the outstanding issue to be resolved. Similarly to the 1980/81 prison struggles, the prisoners are simply asking for their rights and dignity to be respected. read full story / add a comment

Ως συνηθισμένοι άνθρωποι πρέπει να αγωνιστούμε για να σπάσουμε το εθνικιστικό πλαίσιο που προπαγανδίζουν αυτοί που διαμορφώνουν την κοινή γνώμη. Πρέπει να δούμε ότι τα συμφέροντά μας είναι πραγματικά τα ίδια με αυτά της διεθνούς εργατικής τάξης. Πρέπει να βρούμε τρόπους για να εκφράσουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας με τους Έλληνες αδελφούς και αδελφές μας, να σταθούμε στο πλευρό των Ισπανών αδελφών μας και πάει λέγοντας. Οι καπιταλιστές αφέντες του κόσμου γνωρίζουν ότι τα συμφέροντά τους διατηρούνται και προωθούνται όσο συνεργάζονται με τους ομοίους τους και κρατούν την εργατική τάξη σε τάξη χρησιμοποιώντας τον εθνικισμό. read full story / add a comment

sorrymigrantx.jpg imageIreland - Migrant X refused an abortion and forced to have a C-section 22:31 Thu 21 Aug by Andrew 0 comments

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

A crise do Iraque já se arrasta há décadas. Tanto o regime Saddam Hussein tanto quanto sob a atual "democracia", desde a invasão de 2003, não há liberdade, justiça social, igualdade e há poucas perspectivas para aqueles que são independentes aos partidos políticos no poder. Além da brutalidade e discriminação contra as mulheres e as minorias, um grande abismo foi criado entre os ricos e os pobres, fazendo com que os pobres ficassem cada vez mais pobres e os ricos mais ricos.

textPalestine-Israel, Israel attack on Gaza ending with a defeat of its arrogant power show* 19:34 Tue 12 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Israel started the attack on the Hamas to sabotage the Hamas compromise with the west bank authority, and restore a weakened Hamas independent rule in the Gaza strip. Hamas compromise was a response to Egyptian closer intended to dismantle the Hamas. The failed Israeli attack will force it to contribute its share to significantly open the closer of the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which was till the attack based on the bare minimal on the margin of humanitarian catastrophe. Whatever the details of the new cease fire and arrangements, the failure of Israel vicious assault to stop the Hamas from firing rockets on Israel is a significant "game changer". The failed attack on Gaza and the continuing popular struggle in the west bank are hastening the international pressures to end the occupation of the West bank and the closer of the Gaza strip.

textPalestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria in tempi di guerra 17:07 Wed 06 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Le lotte unitarie nelle solite località di Bil'in, Ni'lin, Ma'sara, Sheikh Jarrah, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, le colline a ovest di Hebron, svoltesi nel weekend ed in settimana, si sono focalizzate sulla guerra a Gaza e sugli aspetti più evidenti dell'occupazione. Ad oggi, sembra che Israele abbia fallito l'obiettivo di insediare a Gaza un governo di Hamas indipendente ma indebolito, dato che le atrocità commesse su Gaza non sono riuscite a suscitare una pressione internazionale sufficiente a spingere l'Egitto ad allentare l'assedio su Gaza. Pare che tra Hamas e l'Autorità Palestinese in Cisgiordania verrà rinnovato quel patto che Israele ha così strenuamente cercato di sabotare. [English]

Bruno Lima Rocha, 18 de agosto de 2014

O Comitê de Determinações da Associação Internacional de Swaps e Derivativos (ISDA, ver o site dc.isda.org) equivale a uma instância globalizada de classificação de “riscos”, afirmando, por exemplo, se algum país está em default (calote) ou não. Este órgão foi criado em 2009, para tentar impor uma legitimidade a partir dos próprios fraudadores do sistema financeiro mundial. O jornal O Globo, em sua edição de 1º de agosto (página 24, em matéria de Marcio Beck e Rennan Setti) apresenta a informação dos componentes deste Comitê, sem fazer o contraponto do passado recente destes conglomerados do cassino do capital fictício. Bastaria consultar o domínio do Comitê, observar a composição dos membros das Américas e cruzar com informações difundidas pela grande mídia para dar-se conta de que, literalmente, quem está arbitrando o conflito é parte geradora da quebradeira de setembro de 2008.

La crise irakienne est continue depuis des décennies, tant sous le régime de Saddam Hussein que sous le « régime démocratique actuel » depuis l'invasion de 2003. Il n'y avait ni de liberté, ni de justice sociale, ni d'égalité et peu de perspectives pour celles et ceux qui étaient indépendant des partis politiques au pouvoir. En plus de la brutalité existante et la discrimination contre les femmes et les genTEs ordinaires, un très grand fossé a été creusé entre les riches et les pauvres, rendant les pauvres de plus en plus pauvres et les riches de plus en plus riches.
