In the midst of gorging themselves through exploitation and corruption, competing factions of the flabby ruling class in South Africa (the ruling class being capitalists, politicians and top state officials) have once again stepped into the ring to take pieces out of one another. In the one corner of the fight is the Zuma faction - comprised of sections of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) capitalists, top state officials, and politicians aligned to Zuma - while in the other corner is the Ramaphosa/Gordhan faction - comprised of sections of the ANC leadership such as Ramaphosa and Gordhan, white capital and the South African Communist Party (SACP). These factions have recently been standing toe to toe exchanging blows and in the process, metaphorical blood has been spilled: those of a few Cabinet Ministers, including Pravin Gordhan. read full story / add a comment

Inter city bus workers in Ireland launched widespread secondary pickets at 4am this morning. Solidarity from transport workers at the other services picketed meant that most of the country ground to a halt as morning rush hour approached, almost all trains, Dublin bus and light rail services did not operate. The action is a clear demonstration of the power transport workers hold because of their position in economies. read full story / add a comment

Por primera vez en la historia del país, se abre una discusión presupuestal a mitad de un período de gobierno. El Presupuesto fue elaborado por dos años debido según el gobierno a la “volatilidad e inestabilidad internacional”. Ahora se re-discutirá todo o buena parte del mismo. Pero ya el Presidente y el Ministro de Economía han abierto el paraguas de la “prudencia en el gasto”.

Hoy, 30 de marzo de 2017, luego de 25 días de huelga, con varios trabajadores en huelga de hambre, en reclamo para que no se aprobara en la Cámara de Vereadores (ediles) la rebaja del monto por vale de alimentación y escalonamiento de los salarios, la Brigada Militar reprimió con dureza la movilización de los trabajadores municipales. Balas de gomas, golpes con todo tipo de objetos y gases lacrimógenos fue la respuesta de Miki Breier (PSB) -Prefecto de Cachoerinha- y la Policía Militar a los justos reclamos de los trabajadores y trabajadoras. read full story / add a comment

La privatizzazione di sanità e istruzione, ossia il passaggio dalla prospettiva della relazione utente-servizio a quella cliente-prestazione (prodotto), è stata anticipata nei decenni precedenti da un primo passaggio, che ha portato dall'originaria relazione cittadino-diritto a quella di utente-servizio.
Da lì il passo è stato breve per arrivare alla frattura della relazione fra la persona e il suo bisogno, che sta alla base di tutto il discorso del welfare. read full story / add a comment

Our global society is broken. Donald Trump & Brexit are symptoms along with the rise of the far right elsewhere in Europe. In an old pattern, fundamental economic crisis often results in society becoming very much more brutal for most people.  In the age of nuclear weapons this current crisis could be our last.  And with a somewhat longer countdown to disaster we are also facing climate catastrophe. read full story / add a comment

International Womens Day in Ireland saw thousands take to the streets in a sequence of 'in work time' protests under the heading 'Strike4Repeal'. Abortion is illegal in almost all circumstances and the protests were an attempt by pro-choice activists to forced the government to stop delaying a referendum to repeal the anti-choice 8th Amendment placed in the Irish constitution in 1983. Workers Solidarity Movement members took part in organising the day and in the aftermath produced a number of articles and videos detailing what happened. read full story / add a comment

El día domingo 26 de Marzo se celebró la tan esperada consulta minera sobre la explotación del oro en la mina de oro de La Colosa, en Cajamarca (Tolima). 6.241 habitantes de Cajamarca salieron ese día a votar ante una sencilla pregunta “¿Está usted de acuerdo Sí o No que en el municipio de Cajamarca se ejecuten proyectos y actividades mineras?”. El resultado fue contundente: 98% de los votantes se expresaron a favor del NO a la megaminería. read full story / add a comment
Am 8. März, zum Frauen*kampftag, fand in Karl-Marx-Stadt eine Solidaritätsdemo für die neu gegründete GG/BO Sektion statt. Vom Hauptbahnhof an liefen circa 170 Teilnehmer*innen durch Chemnitz, um sich am Ende der Route vor dem Chemnitzer Frauen*-Knast zu sammeln, wo neben lautstarken Solidaritätsbekundungen auch viele tolle Redebeiträge zu hören waren. Darunter verlesene Briefe anderer Inhaftierter, die ebenfalls in der Gefangengewerkschaft aktiv sind, Beiträge feministischer Gruppen und Einzelpersonen. Auch dieser Beitrag wurde vor Ort vorgetragen. Er ist von uns als FAU Sektion Chemnitz, die zusammen mit vielen anderen Ortgruppen und Syndikaten an diesem Tag vertreten war.
Denn: Unverträgliche Gewerkschaften sollten zusammenhalten, genau so wie wir auch die sozialen Kämpfe auf dem Weg in die befreite Gesellschaft nur gemeinsam gewinnen können. In diesem Gedanken steht auch der hier veröffentlichte Redebeitrag.

GG/BO=Gefangengewerkschaft bundesweite Organisation []

Los muertos también se han convertido en un campo de batalla en Colombia. Cuanto tengamos, efectivamente, paz en los cementerios, es cuando la paz realmente termine de materializarse en Colombia. Cuando el cuerpo de Trofijo pueda encontrar un lugar definitivo de descanso, sin el temor de que paramilitares o el propio ejército lo exhumen para jugar fútbol con su cráneo, es cuando sabremos que realmente estamos en paz. Cuando los familiares puedan sacar a los guerrilleros que quedaron enterrados en cementerios escondidos en la selva y volverlos a sus veredas para despedirse humanamente de ellos. read full story / add a comment

The arrest on the 11th of March occurred outside the migrant housing squat (Alkiviadou) which was evicted by the police just two days later. The police still arrested these four comrades even after they were informed that the group was acting in defence of neighbourhood squats, thus the arrest was explicitly political. The Police are thus responsible for making squats more vulnerable to fascist attacks, which is in line with the state strategy to destroy self-organized migrant housing communities. read full story / add a comment

In our last statement on the Michael Schmidt case and accusations by journalists Alexander Reid Ross and Joshua Stephens that he is a fascist and white nationalist that attempted to infiltrate the anarchist movement, we said that the Anarkismo network had decided “to call for a commission of enquiry to investigate more closely both the accusations and the defence, and to make recommendations to the broader anarchist movement based on their findings”. Regrettably it has been over a year since we announced our intention to convene a commission of inquiry and it has not yet materialised. While we have recently started making progress once again on the call for a commission and will continue to work towards finalizing our proposal and framework, however, we have also had enough time now to debate aspects of the case both within and between some of the organisations in the network. New developments and information concerning the case have also come to our attention that must be addressed immediately. read full story / add a comment

Le scorciatoie del sovranismo portano la sinistra in un vicolo cieco; invece occorre rilanciare una prassi internazionalista e combattere il capitalismo in ogni luogo di lavoro e di vita, costruendo orizzonti di alternativa sociale in cui donne ed uomini organizzati come classe di sfruttati ed oppressi sfidano il dominio capitalistico e populista e ricostruiscono solidarietà e partecipazione dal basso. read full story / add a comment

Después de que el pasado miércoles el imperio agroindustrial de INCAUCA asesinara al comunero indígena y Liberador de tierra JAVIER OTECA en la hacienda Miraflores de Corinto, el día de hoy aparece una nueva amenaza paramilitar contra el proceso de Liberación de la Emperatriz, en Caloto. Como otros panfletos que circulan en el Norte del Cauca desde enero del presente año, el grupo paramilitar de las Águilas Negras aparece como el autor de las amenazas de muerte, lo preocupante es que en este caso aparece el nombre y los apellidos de 13 Liberadores de Tierra de la Emperatriz. Además se ofrece dinero por el asesinato de cualquiera de ellos. read full story / add a comment
