Why can’t the 99% simply vote in a government that acts in their interest and not that of the 1%

At a simple level parliamentary elections sound like the ideal way for the mass of the ‘have nots’ to use their numbers to overcome the power and influences of the tiny number of have’s. Occupy talked about this division in the language of the 1% and 99%; a crude approximation that does reflect a reality where the number of wealthy decision makers is actually very tiny, indeed less than 1%. So, why can’t the 99% simply vote in a government that acts in their interest and not that of the 1%? read full story / add a comment

Το "Μικρό Δέντρο που θα γινει δάσος", είναι ένα παιδαγωγικό εγχείρημα που δημιουργήθηκε με σκοπό να προάγει την ελευθερία και τη βιωματική μάθηση. Ξεκίνησε τη λειτουργία του τον Ιανουάριο του 2014 και το "δάσος" του βρίσκεται στην περιοχή Κρυονερίου της Θεσσαλονίκης. Θελήσαμε να μάθουμε περισσότερα για αυτό το αλλιώτικο σχολείο κι έτσι κάναμε την παρακάτω συζήτηση. read full story / add a comment

En los últimos dos días la noticia que ha conmocionado al país es la de una supuesta red de prostitución masculina en el seno de la Policía Nacional y que cuenta con la participación de altos funcionarios públicos. Esto gracias a la divulgación de un vídeo que hace parte del corpus de pruebas que la Procuraduría General ha construido para iniciar un proceso en la Fiscalía a los funcionarios implicados. El asunto se ha convertido es un circo mediático completo. read full story / add a comment
southern africa / anarchist movement / press release Friday February 19, 2016 10:46 by Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front   text 39 comments (last - tuesday october 04, 2016 16:25)   image 1 image
19th February 2016 The following is the official statement of the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF) of South Africa on the controversy that erupted around Michael Schmidt, a South African activist, several months ago. It follows a careful collective discussion process and research and comes several weeks after the last installment in a series of articles claiming to be an expose of Schmidt. As we are also committed to a number of ongoing workshops, activities and publications, our time was limited. It has two main aims: to outline our position on the claims made for, and against, Schmidt, and to respond to a number of false statements that have been made about the ZACF in the course of the developing Schmidt affair. The statement opens with an executive summary, followed by a much more extensive discussion. The statement was collectively crafted and issued by the ZACF: Questions and requests for comment should be addressed to with a clearly-identifiable subject line (Please note that we will not be responding to questions, queries or claims from people using pseudonyms or otherwise concealing their identities. Organisational affiliation, if any, should please be stated). * Please note that a much earlier draft seems to have leaked online, labelled “Consolidated ZACF statement v18.docx” at 84kb, dated 22 December 2015. Our documents go through a process of collective writing and criticism and fact-checking, so THIS version (the one you are reading now) is the correct one, with significant changes from earlier versions. All previous drafts are made null-and-void by this final version and have no standing whatsoever, and we will not enter into discussion of such drafts. read full story / add a comment

venezuela / colombia / education / comunicado de prensa Friday February 19, 2016 03:39 by Grupo Estudiantil Anarquista   image 1 image
Hace cerca de 4 años empezamos a reunirnos un pequeño grupo de estudiantes libertarias con varios sueños, esperanzas, miedos, preguntas y propuestas, para conformar un nuevo referente organizativo que aglutinara la gesta por una nueva educación desde la larga tradición de la lucha del movimiento estudiantil en el país, que no en vano se ha saldado con decenas de compañeras perseguidas, heridas, desaparecidas y asesinadas. Veníamos con altas ganas de trabajar luego del paro nacional universitario del 2011 que logró ponerle freno momentáneamente a la arremetida neoliberal del presidente Santos a través del Ministerio de Educación, pero también, en medio de edificios bloqueados y calles colmadas, planteábamos la necesidad de poner en práctica una educación libertaria y popular a través de diferentes espacios de construcción social, con nuestras compañeras y también con aquellas que se encuentran fuera de las universidades, en miras a construir sobre lo que se va destruyendo. read full story / add a comment

Reza Aslan's Zealot (2013) presents the ways in which the life of Jesus of Nazareth was “revised” ex post facto by the Gospel-writers or evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and how it was that Rome's suppression of the Jewish Revolt of 66 C.E. catalyzed the very writing of the Gospels (70-120 C.E.) and the propagation throughout the Greco-Roman Diaspora of the revisionist views of Saul (Paul) of Tarsus, which stressed the divinity of Jesus while attempting to reconcile or downplay the prophet's political revolutionism, directed against Rome and the Jewish ruling class, as summarized in the Kingdom of God he proclaimed. Aslan provides many historical correctives both to the presentation of the Gospels and the dogma institutionalized by the various Christian churches, yet his own account of Jesus as Zealot would likely be improved by engagement with Christian anarchist thinkers such as Leo Tolstoy. read full story / add a comment
