11 juin 2013 // L’Union Communiste Libertaire souhaite dénoncer de vive voix les campagnes de peur et l’incitation à la haine des radios-poubelles, de même que ses poursuite-bâillons. Nous constatons encore les dérives dangereuses et les menaces violentes de fans de ces radios envers des personnes associées au boycott de celles-ci. Nous appelons les militantes sociales et militants sociaux à combattre sur plusieurs fronts la démagogie populiste de droite qui a pignon sur rue dans plusieurs stations radios de la province. read full story / add a comment

Universal Unitarian community minister Jason Lydon began his prison justice work as a teenager. At age 20, he served a six-month sentence at a county jail in Georgia and a federal prison in Massachusetts. During the time he was locked up, firsthand experiences with harassment and violence radicalized his attention to the violence of the prison industrial complex, especially as it pertains to LGBT and other marginalized people.

Between 2004-2005, Jason founded Black and Pink, a Boston-based organization that describes itself as “an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and ‘free world’ allies who support each other” in their work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex. Black and Pink’s ongoing projects include a pen-pal project for LGBT prisoners, publishing and distributing a monthly newsletter of stories, poetry, and art by current and former incarcerated LGBT people, and direct advocacy and support for a few select individuals experiencing harassment, sexual violence, lack of access to healthcare, and other forms of mistreatment. Now serving as Director and Lead Organizer at Black and Pink, Jason spoke with The Media about his prison abolition work and the visibility that’s come with Black and Pink’s recent nomination to be the Grand Marshal at Boston Pride 2013. Voting is open until May 15. read full story / add a comment

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”.

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
