ireland / britain / community struggles / news report Thursday September 13, 2012 14:36 by Sean Matthews
People in deprived areas in Northern Ireland are three times more likely to take their lives. Health minister Edwin Poots said, ‘Unemployment rates in deprived areas further affect people and this is a major concern. Studies indicate that a 1% increase in unemployment is met with a corresponding 0.79% increase in suicide. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / imperialism / war / opinion / analysis Friday November 11, 2011 21:06 by Sean Matthews
Anyone who has been active on the left and broader labour movement will have faced the 'million dollar question from republicans on the 'national question'. The question of opposition or indifference to the partition of the island is often thrown by republicans like a dagger in the direction of the existing left. In responnse many become either wedded to the romantic idea of the flag removing all our sins or face the jibe of being a ‘gas and water socialist’ or at worst a sop to unionism. It’s the type of choice you get at Stormont every four years where you get to choose between Coca Cola and Pepsi. Equally it’s the type of approach of the PSNI press statement that presents every ’dissenter’ from the status-quo as being wedded to physical force republicanism. But of course its much more complicated than this….

ireland / britain / crime prison and punishment / news report Friday November 11, 2011 21:03 by Sean Matthews
The sixty million payoff to prison officers in Northern Ireland could be much better spent on addressing the causes of crime such as poverty, social deprivation and prison rehabilitation. Prison officers who served during the Troubles could walk away from their jobs with packages of more than £120,000 plus pension as part of a £60m redundancy programme aimed at ‘modernising’ the service.

ireland / britain / anarchist movement / news report Friday September 09, 2011 22:55 by Sean Matthews
Historian Mairtin O Cathain’s ‘Wee Black Booke’ has now been added to our archive for you to read or download. In it he pulls together reports of anarchism in and around Belfast in the years from 1867 to 1973. With no local movement for much of this period, the pamphlet looks at some individuals whose political activity merited mention in the media of the time. O Cathain’s work stops before the emergence in the late 1970s of the groups from which contemporary anarchist organisations Workers Solidarity Movement and Organise! can trace their roots.

More than 20,000 people demonstrated for electoral reforms across Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, on Saturday in a rare protest that was declared illegal by police. The protest was called for by opposition groups, including the Coalition for Free and Fair Elections, Bersih. Police fired tear-gas and water cannons at demonstrators and arrested more than 1,400 people, including top opposition leaders, according to protest organisers. The activists' demands include an overhaul of voter registration lists, tougher measures to curb fraud and fairer opportunities for opposition politicians to campaign in government-linked media. Malaysia's next general election is planned due in 2013.  Anarchists were also present on the march and one participant sent us this un-edited brief report and the picture with this article read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / migration / racism / opinion / analysis Wednesday June 22, 2011 17:15 by Sean Matthews
The cracks beneath the surface in the peace process were once again exposed on the streets of East Belfast last night in the second night of serious sectarian rioting. A UVF led mob numbering in the 100's has been engaged in attacks on catholic homes at the edge of the Short Strand. This is the reality of a peace dividend which has failed to deliver to working-class communities and stands in stark contrast to suburbia only 5 miles away which produced golf champion Rory McElroy.

The brutal sectarian murder of voluntary community worker Kevin McDaid in Coleraine has again exposed the ugly face of sectarianism in Northern Ireland and the fallacy of the so-called peace settlement.

De bezettingen bij Visteon tonen aan dat we verre van apathisch zijn als het gaat om het verdedigen van onze banen, lonen en levensstandaard. Arbeiders begonnen op 31 maart met het bezetten van de Finaghy fabriek, nadat bestuurders het verlies aankondigden van rond 600 banen bij Visteon/Ford fabrieken in Belfast, Basildon en Enfield in Engeland. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / economy / news report Thursday October 09, 2008 00:22 by Sean Matthews
The recession in the economy means that working people are having to come to terms with growing house repossessions, below inflation pay-increases, and a steep rise in the cost of living. Meanwhile, property developers and banks are busy using the credit crunch and the downturn in the housing market to get Government bail outs, despite the fact that it was their speculative polices that helped created the mess in the first place. read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / interview Tuesday February 05, 2008 07:38 by Sean Matthews
Below is an interview with a member of the TGWU who is attempting to organise a union in a leading Irish Sports Shop in Belfast. It describes the problems facing workers in the retail sector who are exploited by their employers and start organising themselves in their own work-place to improve their conditions. These problems are even more acute when there is no history of unionisation in the workplace and a limited awareness of people's rights as workers.
Due to potential libel action and its consequences for the union we are unable to print the company’s name. 'An Ireland of equals' what rubbish! read full story / add a comment

El “Colectivo social ¡Salvemos el río Renaico!” es una organización que funciona en base a autogestión y mantiene autonomía política, está conformada por jóvenes y adultos de la comuna de Renaico y surge por la crítica situación por la que atraviesa el río de dicha comuna a raíz de la intervención de la empresa “CMPC”, canales de regadío irregulares, la introducción de bosques de árboles exóticos y la actual instalación de una central hidroeléctrica de paso por parte de la empresa “Agua Viva S.A.”, pero además este colectivo ha adoptado nuevas problemáticas a sus actividades de agitación, como la construcción de la llamada “Ruta Nahuelbuta” que traerá consigo la instalación de un peaje en Coihue (entrada norte) y otro en Tijeral (entrada sur) afectando directamente al bolsillo de los renaiquinos.

Αντιθέτως θέλουν μια κοινωνία που να διευθύνεται από τους εργαζόμενους της μέσω άμεσης δημοκρατικής διαδικασίας χωρίς ιεραρχία.

imageSyriza: Terremoto en Europa Jan 27 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

La arrolladora victoria electoral de Syriza en los comicios de ayer domingo en Grecia, expresa ante todo el sentimiento mayoritario de rechazo del pueblo griego en contra del traspaso de las deudas de los ricos al pueblo. Pero también expresa un deseo de renovación de la política, en sintonía con esa “indignación” que recorre a la juventud en gran parte del mundo, cansada de la política elitista en beneficio exclusivo del 1% de los súper-ricos, pero que tampoco se siente representada en una izquierda anquilosada, cuyas prácticas, al final de cuentas, no difieren tanto de la politiquería tradicional.

Junto al intenso proceso de urbanización que se está desarrollando en gran parte de Sudamérica, se presentan una serie de procesos políticos que no entregan ninguna garantía en términos de planificación regional. Esto ha convertido a los territorios en zonas localmente vulnerables, propiciando las bases para una globalización que golpea hasta nuestros últimos eslabones de patrimonio natural, cultural, arquitectónico, y sus diferentes expresiones.

imageJoaquim Levy e o mito do governo em disputa Jan 20 by BrunoL 0 comments

Parece que finalmente caiu a máscara e o poder central no 3º turno negociado expôs a sua verdadeira face – ou ao menos a face hegemônica. Na reportagem de CartaCapital de 18 de janeiro de 2015 (de Carlos Drummond) o ajuste fiscal aplicado pelo ministro da Fazenda Joaquim Levy foi caracterizado como "punhalada fiscal". O bom repórter da publicação que apoia o governo de centro-direita marcado pelo lulismo, ao ouvir fontes como dirigentes de centrais sindicais mais que acostumados a "dialogar" com o governo, as medidas implicam em tentativa de redução de déficit estrutural de 1,2% do PIB. A intenção de Levy e sua equipe (ou a equipe econômica indicada por Dilma, pós-graduada em economia pela Unicamp) como se sabe, intenta "sinalizar ao mercado" e outras balelas indicando que o Estado precisa diminuir seu papel e reforçar seu caráter de classe. Embora a sociedade brasileira seja bastante complexa para um país ocidental e o aparelho de Estado do governo central esteja recheada de interesses diretos e insulamentos tecnocráticos, no fundo o que está em jogo é a definição do caráter de classe do Estado e a diminuição do poder do voto individual na democracia indireta apresentada como melhor saída
