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? Şi este el relevant într-un fel?

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 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.

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

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.

“Un país que destruye la escuela pública no lo hace nunca por dinero, porque falten recursos o porque su costo sea excesivo.

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".

I 50 giorni di guerra su Gaza sono finiti dopo che Israele ha implorato un cessate-il-fuoco ed aperto ad ulteriori richieste da parte di Hamas (di cui alcune tenute segrete persino agli stessi ministri israeliani). Una maggioranza di israeliani è disposta ad ammettere che Israele non ha vinto la guerra ma riconoscono con difficoltà che Hamas ha avuto la mano migliore. I ministri hanno approvato due settimane fa un documento del governo contenente una proposta di dispiegamento di una forza internazionale a Gaza, che può significare la fine dell'occupazione israeliana della Striscia di Gaza e l'apertura del ghetto... e può essere un precedente che potrebbe essere la fine dell'occupazione della Cisgiordania.

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.

Le notizie che vanno per la maggiore raccontano le storie degli orrori commessi dallo Stato Islamico (IS) in Siria ed in Iraq ma anche di come gli Stati Uniti vogliano apparentemente mettere fine a questi orrori per ragioni umanitarie. Quello che non viene mai detto dai media privati e di Stato è da dove viene l'IS, quali sono le vere ragioni di questo nuovo intervento degli USA in Medio Oriente, della volontà degli USA di isolare e distruggere le uniche due forze che stanno realmente combattendo contro l'IS: il PKK e le YPG.

Τα προηγούμενα χρόνια διάφορα κοινωνικά κινήματα και περιβαλλοντικοί σχολιαστές είχαν αφιερώσει μεγάλο μέρος της ενέργειάς τους σε προσπάθειες που υποστηρίζουν την κατάρρευση της ταξικής πάλης ως μια βιώσιμη δύναμη για κοινωνική αλλαγή (βλέπε Eckersley, 1990˙ Bowles and Gintis, 1987˙ Bookchin, 1993, 1997). Αυτοί οι συγγραφείς υποστήριζαν πως οι αναλύσεις της ταξικής πάλης ήταν ανίκανες να λογαριάσουν τον πλουραλισμό των μορφών που η ιεραρχία, η κυριαρχία και η καταπίεση παίρνουν στον προηγμένο καπιταλισμό, ή σε αυτό που προτιμούν να αποκαλούν «μετά-βιομηχανικές» κοινωνίες (Μπούκτσιν 1980, 1986).
