Revolutions are seldom made in favourable circumstances.  Russia 1917 emerged from the mass slaughter of WWI and the disintegration of an economy under the pressure of the supply demands of that war.  Spain 1936 emerged from a well planned and executed fascist coup amongst a powerful military backed and armed by international fascism.  Schemas for revolution that depend on quiet times and plenty may well be doomed from the start. read full story / add a comment

E' in corso da tempo in Irlanda una rivolta contro l'ennesima tassa da austerity, questa volta è la tassa sull'acqua. Nelle aree residenziali del paese ci sono conflitti che vedono da una parte i residenti e dall'altra la Garda (la polizia di stato, ndt) insieme ai sorveglianti privati che devono installare i contatori dell'acqua. Ci sono stati cortei di decine di migliaia di persone. Questa settimana, prendendo a pretesto un piccolo incidente di 3 mesi fa quando gli attivisti del movimento bloccarono con un sit-in di 2 ore l'auto del Tánaiste (termine che indica il vice-primo ministro irlandese, ndt), la polizia irlandese ha fatto delle perquisizioni nelle case di 21 attivisti del movimento. Quello che segue è il report sulla retata della scorsa settimana a cura del Workers Solidarity Movement. [English] read full story / add a comment

A prolonged revolt is happening in Ireland against the introduction of yet another austerity tax, this time as a charge on water. Across the country housing estates have seen conflict between residents, Garda and private security over the installation of water meters. Marches of tens of thousands have taken place. This week seizing on a minor incident 3 months ago when water charge campaigners sat in front of the Tanaistes (Deputy Prime Minister) car for two hours the Irish police (Garda) have mounted dawn raids against the houses of 21 water charge campaigners. The piece that follows is the Workers Solidarity Movement reportage of these raids as they happened over last week. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Έχοντας γράψει ένα μεγάλο κομμάτι για την εκλογή του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, είδα ότι ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ έχει κάνει συνασπισμό με ό,τι έχει περιγραφεί ως αντι-μεταναστευτικό δεξιό (ή ακόμη και ακροδεξιό) κόμμα, τους Ανεξάρτητους Έλληνες (ή ANEΛ). Οι ΑΝΕΛ τηρούν μια ισχυρή αντιευρωπαϊκή στάση, αλλά στο επίπεδο του να βλέπουν τους Έλληνες ως θύματα «διεθνούς συνωμοσίας». Έχουν εκλέξει 15 βουλευτές, κάτι που δίνει έναν συνασπισμό με μια ισχυρή πλειοψηφία με τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ στη Βουλή, ενώ τα δύο κόμματα έχουν συνεργαστεί και στο παρελθόν. Πιθανώς το γεγονός αυτό καθώς και η σθεναρή στάση των ΑΝΕΛ κατά της Ευρωπαϊκής Κεντρικής Τράπεζας (ΕΚΤ) είναι οι λόγοι που ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ αποφάσισε ότι η αντιμεταναστευτική τους πολιτική δεν αποτελεί κάτι σημαντικό. read full story / add a comment

Σήμερα, σε όλη την Ευρώπη, η Αριστερά είναι ενθουσιασμένη καθώς ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ βρίσκεται στην κορυφή των αποτελεσμάτων των ελληνικών εκλογών. Κάποιοι στην αριστερά έχουν προχωρήσει τόσο πολύ που ισχυρίζονται ότι η εκλογή αυτή θα σηματοδοτήσει το τέλος των πολιτικών της λιτότητας, κατά την ορολογία της αγγλικής Αριστεράς, ένα τέλος στην ιδέα ότι δεν υπάρχει εναλλακτική λύση (There Is No Alternative - ΤΙΝΑ). Μια άλλη ένδειξη ότι κάτι σημαντικό συμβαίνει είναι ότι πριν τις εκλογές ένα νέο κύμα φυγής κεφαλαίων ξεκίνησε από την Ελλάδα, με την εκτίμηση ότι 8 δισεκατομμύρια ευρώ μεταφέρθηκαν από τη χώρα κατά τη διάρκεια των τελευταίων εβδομάδων. read full story / add a comment

Do we live in an economy or in a society? Last night Europe's central bankers sent the clear message they expect us to be the well behaved slaves of an economy rather than equals in a society. Less then two weeks after the Greeks had elected an anti-austerity government the ECB in effect told them they intended to block the promises of change that government was elected on. read full story / add a comment

Today, across Europe, the left is excited by Syriza topping the polls in the Greek election. Some on the left have gone so far as to suggest the election itself will mark the end of austerity policies, in the terminology of the Anglo left, an end to the idea that There Is No Alternative (TINA). Another indication that something of significance is happening is that ahead of the election a new wave of capital flight has started from Greece with an estimated 8 billion transferred out of the country over the last few weeks. read full story / add a comment

Translating Anarchy tells the story of the anti-capitalist anti-authoritarians of Occupy Wall Street who strategically communicated their revolutionary politics to the public in a way that was both accessible and revolutionary. read full story / add a comment

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for. read full story / add a comment

Horizontalism is an emerging term used to describe the key common characteristics of the waves of rebellion of the last decade. Occupy in 2011 was the peak to date but the term Horizontalism itself appears to originate the rebellion in Argentina after the 2001 banking crisis there. Marina Sitrin in her book on that rebellion says the term (in Spanish obviously) was used to describe the neighborhood, workplace & unemployed assemblies that emerged to form "social movements seeking self-management, autonomy and direct democracy."

The nostalgic left is a bit of shorthand I’ve started using for those on the left who have reacted to the disintegration of the old left by wishing for idealised simpler times. And perhaps more strangely blaming the collapse on what they see as threatening new developments, like intersectionality. They hold such newfangled nonsense responsible for the current failure of the left to get an echo from the general population. read full story / add a comment

The WSM had its Autumn national conference in Dublin on the 23rd November.  National Conference is the ultimate decision making body in the WSM. It happens every six months usually over a day or two. As well as discussing motions time is also spent on discussing the past six months activity and prospects for the next period. Conference also hears reports of activity from all branches, officers and working groups.  This covered areas like the Irish Anarchist Review, WSM Website, Dublin Anarchist Bookfair and our pro-choice and anti racist work. read full story / add a comment

In 2012 the attempt by the government to Quebec to introduce a 75% fee hike was defeated by the organisation of a mass student strike that lasted over 6 months. That fee increase was part of the global process of imposing the privatisation and commodification of education. Since the victory, organisers of the strike have been being doing speaking tours to aid the process whereby "youth and students everywhere are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to organize as a means to defend education as a social right". In September this tour reaches Ireland where we need to hear how a sustained and militant student movement that can win is built. read full story / add a comment

Despite spending in the region of a million euro and getting the backing of the catholic church its now clear that the anti-choice extremists of Youth Defence & the Pro Life Campaign were resoundingly defeated when the Dail finally voted though legislation implementing the X-Case judgment of 21 years ago. This time last year they were confident that they already had enough Fine Gael TD's on board to block the required legislation but they reckoned against the wave of public anger that followed the death of Savita Halappanavar after she was denied a potentially life saving abortion in a Galway hospital. read full story / add a comment

Tear gas is a very good place to start trying to understand what is happening in Turkey.  The main purpose of tear gas is to terrorise and thus break up large crowds of people.  In Istanbul over the last weeks huge quantities have been used over and over to prevent large anti-government demonstrations developing. This wasn't about 'riot control' - generally there was no riot to control.  In this piece I'm going to put the Gezi park revolt in the context of the cycle of struggles that began in 2010 and of the specific economic, politcal and historical situation of the Turkish republic to try and draw out the lessons for all of us fighting global capitalism read full story / add a comment

Porque, qué son 30 ó 40 días sin consumo de alimentos, nada. No les interesa. Todas las autoridades (comunal, regional y nacional) están al tanto de la huelga de hambre y han dado vuelta sus caras con indiferencia absoluta ante el sacrificio y demandas de nuestros hermanos. Misma indiferencia con la que ven la lucha del mapuche en la recuperación de sus tierras, sus tierras por derecho.

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places.

The xenophobic violence and looting following King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners “pack their bags and leave” spread to cities and townships across the country. However, the recent attacks are not an isolated incident; nor is Zwelithini solely responsible for fomenting it. Local elites – particularly those linked to the ruling party – also encourage anti-immigrant attitudes and actions. This article, based on discussions with Abahlali baseFreedom Park activists, looks at how local elites stimulate ‘xenophobia’ to protect their class interests, as well as how progressive working class activists have responded.

20 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

A cidade de Mahabad é conhecida como a capital do Curdistão iraniano, e hoje opera como o epicentro da rebelião popular dos curdos contra a autoridade xiita de Teerã. O Curdistão Leste (Rojhelat) viveu um momento de rebelião após o dia 7 de maio quando uma jovem curda se atirou do 4º andar de um hotel cinco estrelas onde trabalhava como camareira. O motivo do suicídio de Farinaz Xorowanî foi um ato de rebeldia contra agentes da inteligência iraniana (Itlaat) que, ao alegar querer interroga-la tentaram forçar um estupro. O sacrifício da trabalhadora resultou em rebelião franca e aberta, com as tropas anti-distúrbios da província e forças regulares da Guarda Revolucionária do Irã (Pasdaran) usando munição letal no meio da rua. Tal episódio, ao contrário de ser uma raridade, é a norma de convivência entre o regime dos Aiatolás e a esquerda curda. Nos dias posteriores, a polícia política dos aiatolás prendeu mais de 800 militantes sociais curdos, o que certamente irá aumentar a estatística regular de assassinados pelo Estado; cerca de cem ativistas por ano são enforcados pelas leis do fundamentalismo xiita.

Επομένως το μόνο πράγμα που μπορώ να πω σε μερικούς αρκετά καλοπροαίρετους αξιωματούχους των φυλακών της Μασαχουσέτης που κάποτε ζήτησαν τη συμβουλή μου, ήταν αυτό: Αν δεν μπορείτε να εξασφαλίσετε την κατάργηση του σωφρονιστικού συστήματος – μην δεχτείτε ποτέ ένα παιδί ή έναν νέο στη φυλακή σας. Αν το κάνετε, είναι δολοφονία. Και ύστερα, αφού μάθετε με την εμπειρία τι είναι οι φυλακές, αρνηθείτε να είστε δεσμοφύλακες και ποτέ μην κουραστείτε να λέτε πως η πρόληψη του εγκλήματος είναι ο μόνος κατάλληλος τρόπος για να το καταπολεμήσετε.

17 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

A base do modelo de empresa – e empresa em rede para a sociedade. Isto é o que está em jogo com o processo de austeridade fiscal que vem do governo e o golpe da reação com o Projeto Lei 4330, desengavetado por Eduardo Cunha. Nesta semana, a Câmara votou a Medida Provisória 664 e, através de outra manobra surpresa do cardeal neo-pentecostal e dono de mídia do PMDB fluminense, apareceu o projeto que revisa a base de cálculo previdenciário. Na prática, o Brasil assistiu outro triste espetáculo com políticos camaleões, onde neoliberais travestiram-se de defensores dos aposentados e ex-reformistas incorporaram o discurso da tal da governabilidade. Assim, a Previdência que é superavitária em mais de R$ 83 bilhões ao ano, caso este projeto venha a ser aprovado após passar por todo o rito parlamentar e a sanção da ex-guerrilheira arrependida (algo que duvido), pode gerar uma sobrevida um pouco menos injusta para os que contribuíram com o país por mais de 35 anos e da União levam a escassez porque tudo tem de entrar no maldito regime de caixa para gerar dividendos para os que vivem de capital fictício.

Vejamos na sequência alguns episódios mais marcantes desta semana última no cenário político e ideológico brasileiro.

La urgente necesidad de aprender del pasado para construir nuevos caminos que permitan llenar de victoria y dignidad las luchas de las de abajo, se presenta hoy como una tarea inaplazable tras la fatídica derrota que ha significado para el grueso de las trabajadoras[1] y la población en general la avalancha neoliberal que amenaza con destruir todos los derechos básicos que en su momento la organización y la lucha conquistaron.

Hoy, en medio de incesantes discursos que desde los medios hegemónicos de comunicación reproducen la idea de la prosperidad económica que prepara los caminos para la “paz”, muchas de nosotras vivimos una realidad muy distinta que protagoniza el grueso de las trabajadoras: la miseria y el hambre que ocultan las estadísticas oficiales, la degradación de las condiciones de trabajo que hoy evocan más del 50% (cifras oficiales) de la población laboral, llamada eufemísticamente informal, que se rebuscan la vida trabajando durante horas, a veces días enteros, para poder sobrevivir, soportando la imposibilidad de acceder a un servicio de salud digno y gratuito, a una estabilidad laboral que le permita tener la certeza de un buen mañana, o simplemente a envejecer con las garantías de que la vida de entrega al trabajo será recompensada con estabilidad económica.

Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια διεξάγεται στην Χαλκιδική ένας κοινωνικός αγώνας ενάντια στη καταστροφή του φυσικού περιβάλλοντος της περιοχής από διάφορες εταιρίες εξόρυξης χρυσού οι οποίες μπροστά στα κέρδη τους χρησιμοποιούν κάθε μέσο και είναι διατεθειμένες να μην αφήσουν τίποτα όρθιο. Από την άλλη ένα δυναμικό τοπικό κίνημα που δεν έχει πτοηθεί από τις 300 και πλέον διώξεις και συνεχίζει να παλεύει για τα αυτονόητα, για να ζουν και να δουλεύουν σε μια περιοχή που δεν θα τους σκοτώνει βιολογικά και δεν θα αποτελεί νεκρή γη μέσα σε λίγα χρόνια. Απέναντι τους έχουν από την αρχή την ίδια την Eldorado Gold, το κράτος με κάθε του μορφή, τους κατασταλτικούς μηχανισμούς του, καθώς και τους εργαζόμενους της εταιρίας.
