ireland / britain / workplace struggles / news report Thursday August 23, 2012 16:06 byWSM- Belfast   image 2 images
Around 50 people attended a lunch time vigil today organised by the Belfast Trade and District Council. A range of political organisations and unions attended including the Independent Workers Union, the WSM and Organise! During the rally one speaker from the council also referred to the police being workers too. This will provide little comfort to working people on the receiving end of state violence and terror. As our comrades from the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front note, ‘The role of the police is to repress and silence the working class and poor. This problem cannot be fixed by commissions or enquiries – as some people think. Ask the family of Andries Tatane. It cannot be changed by elections. Remember: Sharpeville 1960, Soweto 1976, Uitenhague 1985, Michael Makhabane in 2000, SAMWU workers in 2009, Andries Tatane in 2011 … Marikana 2012. At least 25 protestors and strikers were killed from 2000, before Marikana.’ read full story / add a comment

Αυτή η χρονιά σηματοδοτεί την 76 επέτειο του «Ισπανικού Εμφυλίου Πολέμου», που είναι μία από τις πιο παρεξηγημένες συγκρούσεις του 20ού αιώνα. Για μερικούς, ιδίως εκείνους που μένουν προσκολημμένοι σε μια παραδοσιακή άποψη της ιστορίας, ο πόλεμος ήταν μόνο μεταξύ των δυνάμεων του φασισμού και εκείνων που υπεράσπιζαν τη δημοκρατικά εκλεγμένη κυβέρνηση των Ρεπουμπλικάνων. read full story / add a comment

The National Conference of the Campaign Against the Household and Water Taxes this Saturday will be making some key decisions that will determine the future success of the campaign. The ultimate objective of our campaign should be to ensure that everyone who gets involved in it can have an equal input into our decision-making. This will make for a more democratic and far more efficient Campaign which large numbers of people will feel direct ownership of. That will mean a far stronger Campaign and one capable of winning. On Saturday we will be distributing this text which explains the case for direct democracy as a leaflet to those attending the conference. read full story / add a comment

Déployement de police anti-émeute à Manchester
irlande / grande-bretagne / crime, prison et punition / opinion / analyse Wednesday August 24, 2011 18:37 byAidan, Andrew & Dermot - Workers Solidarity Movement (WSM)   image 1 image
Le meurtre de Mark Duggan par la police a engendré quatre nuits d’émeutes dans toute l’Angleterre. Le déclencheur immédiat en a été le meurtre lui-même, mais aussi la goujaterie de la police envers la famille et les amis de Mark. Cependant, les émeutes ont rapidement pris une dimension plus large, exprimant une colère et une aliénation plus générales, colère qui trop souvent a été mal ciblée, frappant les cibles les plus proches et à portée de main. Il y eut par conséquent de grandes destructions de biens, dans des quartiers déjà déshérités, et des attaques anti-sociales contre des riverains. Malgré ces aspects, les racines des émeutes résident dans les conditions économiques et politiques qui régissent ces zones, non pas dans la “piètre éducation” des parents ou dans la “criminalité aveugle”. Ces conditions ont été créées par cette même élite de politiciens et d’hommes d’affaire qui en appellent maintenant à un retour à la normalité et à la répression. Les émeutes surgissent à un moment particulier, qui voit le capitalisme atteint d’une crise profonde. En effet, les émeutes ont eu lieu au même moment qu’un nouveau krach dans les marchés mondiaux. Les deux événements se sont tenus la dragée haute dans les Unes des medias. Il ne s’agit pas d’une coïncidence, car le krach et les coupes budgétaires destinées à rejeter son coût sur les épaules des gens ordinaires, ont non seulement fait monter en flèche le chômage, mais aussi saigné à blanc les services publics. Le montant total des destructions provoquées par les émeutes est estimé à 200 millions de £, chiffre dont l’insignifiance pâlit à côté des destructions de richesses causées par les marchés boursiers.

Though Israel failed in its last open assault on the Gaza Strip, it still succeed in its transfer efforts. The drowning of a refugee ship with 450 mainly Gaza people reflect the partial success of Israel transfer efforts that for the never ended efforts since 1948. The siege on Gaza join the pressure on both Palestinians within the 1948 borders and that of the 1967. The big masses were driven out during the 1948 and 1967 wars, but efforts continued with all means possible. Some expelled by force some were moved within the border as pressure to "voluntary transfer". Within the 1967 borders, the Israeli efforts are targeted on the villages and Bedouins living in area C where the joint struggle to resist it is mainly focused in the South of Hebron Hills. And the joint struggle in Arkib, Dahamsh (1948 borders), and Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah (East Jerusalem) continue "as usual".

I 50 giorni di guerra su Gaza sono finiti dopo che Israele ha implorato un cessate-il-fuoco ed aperto ad ulteriori richieste da parte di Hamas (di cui alcune tenute segrete persino agli stessi ministri israeliani). Una maggioranza di israeliani è disposta ad ammettere che Israele non ha vinto la guerra ma riconoscono con difficoltà che Hamas ha avuto la mano migliore. I ministri hanno approvato due settimane fa un documento del governo contenente una proposta di dispiegamento di una forza internazionale a Gaza, che può significare la fine dell'occupazione israeliana della Striscia di Gaza e l'apertura del ghetto... e può essere un precedente che potrebbe essere la fine dell'occupazione della Cisgiordania.

The 50-day war on Gaza ended, after Israel begged for a ceasefire and yielded to major demands from Hamas (some kept in secret even from Israeli government ministers). A majority of Israelis admit that Israel did not win the war but with difficulty admit that Hamas had the upper hand. Ministers passed two weeks ago a classified Cabinet document containing a proposal to place an international force in Gaza, which may mean the end of Israel's occupation of the Gaza Strip and the opening of the Ghetto... and may be a precedent to what could be the end of the occupation of the West Bank). In Israel, the "radical" left is back to "normal"... though many more activists are contemplating joining the comrades who had already lost hope and emigrated. It seems the international pressures of the imperial powers and the advances of the boycott movement are bringing the end of the 1967 occupation sooner than expected. [Italiano]

imageHay toda una institucionalidad que ha sido construida para reprimir el cuerpo de las mujeres Sep 20 by La Champurria 0 comments

Durante mucho tiempo, el aborto fue considerado uno de los temas intocables en este país. Recientementese conoció el caso de una adolescente que, producto de lesiones provocadas por un aborto, concurrió al Hospital Luis Tisné y fue denunciada por el médico que la asistió. Sin reparos al código de ética médica, vemos como una vez más no se resguardó la salud ni la dignidad de las mujeres, infringiendo derechos básicos de las pacientes. Este caso se viene a sumar a cientos de los que ya hemos sido testigos en nuestro país, donde no existe ningún tipo de legislación en resguardo de las mujeres en estas situaciones, menos aún disposiciones que garanticen su autonomía corporal y reproductiva. Esto da lugar a la pregunta: ¿podemos esperar algún cambio por parte del gobierno de Bachelet?
