The announcement from the Irish government that households are to face a charge of €100 per annum from January 1st with separate water and property taxes to follow by 2014 has met with fierce opposition across the country.  Radio and television shows have been inundated with texts and phonecalls from irate people who see this latest tax as a step too far and who have been pledging to resist the charge.  In a TV3 IrelandAM poll this morning, Wednesday, 87% of people answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Would you consider boycotting the household charge?” read full story / add a comment

The government has made it clear that it is determined to press ahead with its attempts to impose not one but two new taxes on us.  Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan is preparing to bring plans to government for a household tax, probably starting at €100 per year, from 1st January.  This tax will be added to by a water tax, expected to be introduced within the next couple of years. read full story / add a comment

Durante le proteste contro la finanziaria davanti a Dáil Éireann [camera dei deputati] il 7 dicembre 2010, Gregor Kerr ha pronunciato il seguente discorso a nome del Workers Solidarity Movement. Ricordando la necessità di contestare questa finanziaria, Kerr aggiunge che bisogna guardare oltre e sottolineare il fatto che il capitalismo in quanto modo di organizzare la società è moralmente e politicamente bancarotta. Se vogliamo assicurarci che questa crisi finanziaria, e la miseria economica che ha portato a milioni di lavoratori e lavoratrici in tutto il mondo, sia l'ultima allora occorre organizzarci, non per cambiare gli amministratori del capitalismo bensì per rovesciare il sistema capitalista e sostituirlo con un sistema che mette i bisogni dei molti al di sopra dell'avidità dei pochi. read full story / add a comment

Many trade union activists have known for years that “social partnership” comes at a huge price for union independence and the ability of trade unions to defend the interest of their members. The myth that government and employers on one side and workers on the other side have some form of common interest has been peddled for over twenty years. This has resulted in a trade union movement whose leadership seems incapable of independent thought and whose membership has been browbeaten into accepting pay cuts, ‘pension levies’ and various attacks on our working conditions and living standards over the past couple of years. read full story / add a comment

A metà giugno si è fatta la conta dei voti. Gli organismi dirigenti del sindacato dei Servizi Pubblici dell’Irish Trade Union Congress hanno accettato “l’accordo di Croke Park”. Il “partneriato sociale”, che si pensava morto e sepolto quando nel dicembre 2009 il governo aveva imposto unilateralmente il taglio agli stipendi nel pubblico impiego, sembra essere resuscitata a nuova vita. read full story / add a comment

When Irish Ferries launched their new €50million vessel in Dublin Port on Tuesday 29th January, 400 guests from the tourism, freight and shipping sectors attended the naming ceremony. How many of them, I wonder, took a moment as they quaffed their champagne and nibbled on their canapés to ponder on the news revealed by International Transport Workers Federation inspector, Ken Fleming, that the workers who would be manning the ferry will be paid as little as €4 per hour? read full story / add a comment

Elders in dit blad ("Red & Black Revolution", zie ‘Anarchism, Elections and all that’), wordt de anarchistische zaak tegen deelname aan verkiezingen omschreven. De alternatieve politieke strategie die door anarchisten naar voren wordt gebracht is het gebruik van directe actie. Dit artikel zet uiteen wat is bedoeld met het concept van directe actie en ook om te stellen dat het onmogelijk is electoralisme en directe actie te combineren, dat door diens aard het electoralisme machteloos maakt, en dat werkelijke directe actie en deelname aan verkiezingen elkaar wederzijds uitsluiten. read full story / add a comment

The nurses’ work-to-rule and their threat to escalate the action next week has been met with an outraged onslaught by Mary Harney and Bertie Ahern. The sight of a group of workers standing up and demanding their rights has become so unusual that it seems as if the government cannot believe the temerity of the nurses in doing just that.
Nurses – through the Irish Nurses Organisation and the Psychiatric Nurses Association – have put forward two key demands
· A 10% pay increase to bring their pay back in line with other health workers
· The introduction of a 35-hour working week, again bringing their working hours in line with other health workers read full story / add a comment

The battle by the community in Rossport Co. Mayo (Ireland) to prevent Shell from riding roughshod over their rights and safety shot to national prominence late last year when 5 local men (who became known as the Rossport 5) spent over 3 months in jail. The men were imprisoned for protesting against attempts by Shell to bring a high-pressure gas pipeline across their lands in close proximity to their homes. read full story / add a comment

It is hoped that more branches within the union will take up this issue and that by next year's annual congress a campaign will be launched in the union to make this a reality read full story / add a comment

Whether we pay rent or a mortgage, the cost of keeping a roof over our heads takes up a huge proportion of our income - those of us who are 'lucky' enough to be in a position to do so. Everywhere we look - both in Dublin and other cities and also in small rural villages and towns - the skyline is dotted with cranes and houses and apartments seem to be springing up everywhere. read full story / add a comment

The term 'community policing' has been much abused in recent times, most particularly in the North of Ireland where it has become shorthand for vicious punishment beatings and shootings. Gregor Kerr takes a look at the issue of community policing - what it is and more importantly what it isn't. The question of what levels of real community policing would actually be possible or allowed under capitalism is looked at, and the debate about crime, anti-social behaviour and reactions to it in an anarchist society is touched on. read full story / add a comment

They want people to believe they’re just “ordinary Australians” who are worried about “radical Islam”.

La pur minima pressione delle potenze imperialiste su Israele affinché attenui la sua morsa sui Palestinesi delle aree occupate nel 1967 sta dando i suoi risultati (più in Cisgiordania che nel ghetto di Gaza). Infatti Israele sta dando lavoro ai circa 100.000 Palestinesi dei territori occupati. La maggior parte dei posti di blocco sono stati rimossi. La rivolta dei Palestinesi in Cisgiordania prosegue solo grazie ai canali di una piccola minoranza di attivisti che tengono vive lotte sia unitarie che separate durante il weekend. [English]

textPalestine-Israel, the joint struggle in turbulent times of the fragmentation in the Zionist rilling ... 15:22 Sun 22 Mar by Ilan S. 0 comments

The merger between the Zionist leadership and the capitalist elite which started 1948 picked in the Tycoons dominance, at 20010. The "too successful" neo-liberalism was challenged by the social struggle, conflicts within the capitalist elite and threatened by international pressure yielded the diminishing power of the old order when the right lost its absolute power in the parliament depending now on the opponent of the milder Zionist right (Kachlon). It is not sure how fast the retreat in the neo-liberal trend and the defeat of the Tycoons combined with the international pressure will yield also retreat in the advance of the Zionist settler and transfer effort. Mean time the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Kadum, Ma'asarah, Southern Hebron Hills, Sheikh Jarrah, the Bedouins of the south, Dahamsh... with additional locations from time to time.

L'attacco a Charlie Hebdo dello scorso gennaio era stato attentamente concepito per dare il massimo vantaggio allo Stato Islamico, ma ne ha tratto vantaggio anche la classe dominante del mondo a capitalismo avanzato. Non si cercava di punire l'atteggiamento satirico di Charlie Hebdo verso ciò che ISIS considera "sacro", bensì di punire quei milioni di musulmani che avevano accettato tale atteggiamento in silenzio, specialmente quei musulmani che vivono in Francia e in occidente.

Dejémonos de hipocresías. Las cosas como son: el sistema de injusticia en el que vivimos no merece ninguna consideración. Resulta que ahora, debido al hambre que sufren millones de seres humanos y a la humillación a la que nos somete el orden en permanente “crisis”, el sistema saca a sus ideólogos baratos (disfrazados de periodistas) para mitigar lo que producen, que es la razón de su existencia. De nuevo salen los pseudo-investigadores con argumentos simples y poco elaborados, atacando donde no es, todo con el fin de defender el estatus-quo y el ejemplo del “buen ciudadano”. Este texto nace de la indignación e ira al saber que la ley es, de nuevo, una herramienta de uso fácil para los de arriba, quienes para justificar su actuar llaman a sus medios de desinformación para llenar las ciudades, medios virtuales y mentes con argumentos que solo pretenden ocultar el trasfondo de las cosas.

textLate contemplations about the Charlie Hebdo massacre Mar 24 by Mazen Kamalmaz 0 comments

The attack on Charlie Hebdo last January was carefully designed to the full benefit of IS, but also to the benefit of the ruling Elite in the advanced capitalist world. It was not intended as punishment for Charlie Hebdo's satiric attitude toward what IS considers as "sacred", but as punishment for millions of Muslims who accepted such an attitude by their silence, especially Muslims who live in France and the west. IS, like everyone else, knew very well that Muslims in Europe and the west will be under heavier pressure after such an attack. IS offered Muslims only one way to defend themselves: to accept its fundamentalist hyper-dogmatic version of Islam and join its ranks - martyrdom and heaven through killing and suicide bombing. The message of IS was clear: freedom of conscience and expression is never a part of Muslims' identity, so it must be declined, denied and fought against. Both IS and the western elite accepted this as a "fact". [Italiano]

I contratti individuali a tutele crescenti, la ridefinizione del lavoro subordinato, la flessibilità svincolata dalla contrattazione, la monetizzazione dei licenziamenti e dell'espulsione dal ciclo produttivo hanno lo scopo immediato di portare all'irrilevanza il diritto di coalizione dei lavoratori ed il ruolo dell'organizzazione sindacale dentro le fabbriche.
