Mike Harris is a founding member of the WSA and one of its predecessor organization, the Libertarian Workers Group, from New York. Following the WSA Continental Conference last May (see report "Workers Solidarity Alliance Holds Continental Conference" on the ideas & action website), we approached him for an interview, as a founding member, a long-standing anarchist militant and as the current corresponding secretary for the WSA. We began by asking about the conference, and took off from there discussing the anarchist movement, the labor movement, and some historical comparisons between today and the period around when the WSA was founded. read full story / add a comment

The prevalence of (ultra-)sectarian and petty-argumentative attitudes, leading to a lack of constructive debate, is doing irreversible damage to the anarchist movement. A basic problem here is the extreme difficulty of consolidating fragments of serious anarchist thought and activity, in a context permeated and distorted by bourgeois ideology... read full story / add a comment

For anarchists, in particular, his administration represents little more than a “change” (!) of the guard which, in every other respect than his skin, is 100% typical of U.S. politics. What is extraordinary is not so much Obama himself—Obama as a politician—but rather the unusual political context. read full story / add a comment

The social rebellion in Greece contains all the explosive potential for a revolution. But an insurrection alone is not a revolution. Now more than ever discipline is needed to keep the struggle going and intensifying — not the discipline of waiting but the discipline of acting, the discipline it takes to step up the struggle faster than the authorities are able to control.

Any discussion on the subject of democracy faces a critical problem early on - a problem of definition. In his contribution to Low Intensity Democracy, Noam Chomsky notes the essential modus operandi of conservative forces in society today and in times past when he states that the guardians of world order have sought to establish democracy in one sense of the term while blocking it in another. read full story / add a comment

On 16 December 2014, Spanish police launched ‘Operation Pandora’. Round-ups, searches, and arrests were carried out at squats in the ‘Casa de la Montaña’ district of Barcelona, at the libertarian San-Andres reading room, the anarchist Poble-Sec reading room, as well as 15 private homes.
Presently, 11 anarchists have been detained incommunicado by the state and accused of belonging to an ‘anarchist terrorist’ organisation (https://libcom.org/news/spain-pandora’s-box-17122014).

The old world order, in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of the US - continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine, has ended. Europe has started to advance its own interests, which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinion against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the West Bank contributes a lot. It was the approach of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for elections, to save himself from the normally-timed election when the crisis would be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles has focused attention on the ferment and rising of the popular non-armed struggles of which Israel is contemplating suppression with systematic use of live ammunition.

Lo Stato di Israele è stato costruito soprattutto dai socialisti nazionalisti che controllavano il 75% dell'economia nel 1949. A causa della dipendenza dalle potenze imperialiste i cosiddetti socialisti investirono soprattutto nella costruzione di una elite capital-sionista che perse il potere nel 1977. I conflitti di interesse all'interno della classe dirigente capital-sionista iniziarono a mutare l'equilibrio tra la piccola fazione di industriali favorevole all'espulsione dei palestinesi e la fazione capitalista integrata nella globalizzazione neoliberista che voleva sfruttare i palestinesi ed i lavoratori dei paesi vicini.

image“Contabilidade criativa” e a incrível capacidade do governo em piorar a relação política a cada opor... Dec 18 by BrunoL 0 comments

17 de dezembro de 2014, Bruno Lima Rocha

No Brasil, a estimativa de perdas (ou gastos) com a corrupção é da ordem de R$ 69 bilhões de reais ao ano. Já a sonegação (sem contar a injustiça fiscal) chega a R$ 415 bilhões de reais. E, por fim, se da sonegação (e o sonegômetro quase ninguém fala), a gastança com a rolagem da dívida odiosa é ainda mais ocultada. Este gasto é da ordem de R$ 718 bilhões de reais ao ano! Esconder estes números e inverter as prioridades é o conluio da mídia hegemônica com os operadores do mercado financeiro e seus representantes, dentro e fora do governo de turno.

imageIl fronte della Rojava ed il complesso teatro delle operazioni della rivoluzione sociale curda Dec 16 by BrunoL 0 comments

L'analisi è relativamente complessa e la risultante sembra essere semplice. Le forze sociali della Rojava sono circondate avendo alle spalle il confine con la Turchia. Prima della liberazione della parte siriana del Kurdistan, le vie usate dai trafficanti di armi per l'approvvigionamento logistico dei jihadisti potevano contare sull'aiuto (tolleranza) dello Stato turco. Dopo il luglio 2012, le YPG, milizie di autodifesa organicamente legate alla TEV-Dem [composizione delle forze sociali egemonizzade dal PYD (Partito di Unione Democratica) che organizza la società locale] hanno cominciato a chiudere il confine nella ricerca di una autonomia regionale. [Castellano]

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

El análisis es relativamente complejo y el resultado parece ser simple. Las fuerzas sociales de Rojava, están rodeadas en la retaguardia, por el cierre de la frontera realizado por Turquía. Antes el bloqueo de la parte siria de Kurdistán, las líneas de los traficantes de armas y el suministro logístico de jihadistas, se realizó (tolerada) por el Estado turco. Después de julio de 2012, el YPG, milicia de autodefensa orgánicamente ligada a la TEV-Dem (composición de las fuerzas sociales hegemonizadas) y el PYD (Partido de la Unión Democrática), con la organización de la sociedad local) comenzó a cerrar la frontera en busca de una autonomía regional.

This essay seeks to address the subject of the Egyptian revolution by following the narrative of the revolution in the 2013 documentary Al Midan (The Square) by Jehane Noujaim. [footnote: Jehane Noujaim. 2013. Al-Midan (The Square). [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2486682/.] The question under investigation here is: How is the revolution – its dynamics and its capacity – narrated in this piece of documentary film? Basically, I want to know, how the director and its narrators give meaning to this recent part of Egyptian history.
