On the eve of International Women’s Day, so-called men’s rights advocates at the University of Toronto hosted an event confronting women’s studies and academic feminism. This was a follow-up to their event in November featuring self-proclaimed ex-feminist Warren Farrell, author of the book the Myth of Male Power. Warren Farrell is best known for his statements about women making false accusations of rape and his argument that incest can be a positive experience, if only women were not socialized to be victims. read full story / add a comment

El dia jueves 28 de marzo fuimos detenidos con violencia Feliciano Efrén Hernández Pablo y David Venegas Reyes por elementos de la Agencia Estatal de Investigaciones (AEI) acusados de robar a un taxista quien minutos antes habia realizado un servicio a David Venegas Reyes y otras dos compañeras, y a quienes intento robarles pero no lo permitieron, una vez que descendieron del taxi llegaron a la casa de c. Feliciano Efrén Hernández Pablo, y cuando salimos a la tienda, es cuando los agentes nos detienen y sin explicacion alguna nos suben con violencia a las patrullas a pesar que varios vecinos acudieron a tratar de impedirlo, porque no habia motivos para la detencion, nosotros decidimos que no lo impidieran para que no hubiera mas violencia, a pesar de esto el c. David Venegas Reyes es golpeado en la cara, espalda y pecho, por un agente durante el trayecto a la PGJE, en la experimental, Oaxaca y despues es nuevamente golpeado en el rostro y estomago por otro agente ya en las instalaciones de PGJE. read full story / add a comment

E' passato più di un mese da quando la Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) ha tenuto una giornata di protesta in occasione della convention provinciale per la guida del Liberal Party, mobilitando almeno 15000 persone per le strade di Toronto fino alle 16.00. La protesta era la risposta sindacale al Disegno di Legge 115, con cui si autorizza il governo provinciale ad eludere la contrattazione collettiva e ad aprire i termini per nuovi "accordi collettivi".

It has been over a month since the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) held their one-day protest of the provincial Liberal Party leadership convention, mobilizing some 15,000 people on the streets of Toronto and then sending them all home again around 4:00 PM. The protest was part of the trade union response to Bill 115, which enabled the provincial government to circumvent collective bargaining and mandate the terms of new “collective agreements”.

north america / mexico / the left / opinion / analysis Monday March 18, 2013 00:35 by S. Nappalos
The terrain is changing beneath our feet. Since the collapse of the majority of the “official communist” regimes, the world has witnessed both events and ideas that have undermined the former dominant thinking within the left. The Zapatistas, Argentina in 2001, South Korean workers movements, Oaxaca in 2006, the struggles around anti-globalization, and Greece’s series of insurrectionary moments have increasingly presented challenges to traditional left answers to movements and organization. In previous eras Marxist-Leninism was the nexus which all currents by default had to respond to either in agreement or critique. Today, increasingly anarchist practices and theory have come to play this role.

As a member of an anarchist political organization, a friend once told me I in fact was practicing democratic centralism. This was perplexing, because the group had no resembling structures, practices, or the associated behaviors of democratic centralism. However, I was told that since we debated, came to common decisions, and acted on that collective democracy, we were in fact democratic centralist. This kind of productive confusion led to questions about the concept, and why the target of democratic centralism has shifted. This move, the shifting conceptual territory of core concepts of a certain orthodoxy, comes up repeatedly not only with democratic centralism, but also surrounding ideas like crisis, dialectics, the State, and class. The resulting cognitive dissonance caused me to investigate attempts at reinvigorating the concept of democratic centralism (democratic centralist revisionism), and understand truly what it is, where it came from, and how it has been practiced. read full story / add a comment

Hemos gastado nuestros días buscando la potencia entre las ruinas y la chatarra, pero finalmente nos hemos dado cuenta que no era ahí donde debíamos buscar. Lo que perseguimos no pude habitar en este mundo miserable que no es nuestro, y cuyo entorno es una “snuff-movie” eternamente en “play”. Su esbozo se encuentra acá, en una estrella a punto de estallar que cada uno de nosotros lleva sobre sus hombros. Podemos afirmar que ahora, que hemos perdido un mundo entero y maldecimos con toda la fuerza de nuestras almas, nos encontramos en disposición de conquistar uno nuevo, uno propio.
