aotearoa / pacific islands / workplace struggles / opinion / analysis Wednesday October 08, 2014 12:00 byAWSM   image 1 image
The General Election in New Zealand/Aotearoa took place at the end of September and so its all over and done with. More accurately, the ritual of deciding who will politically rule over us has ended. The election of our bosses in the workplace never happened. The end result in both cases is the same. We are faced with a ruling class that feels emboldened to attack workers when it senses opportunities to do so. The latest piece of ammunition the government is preparing to lob our way comes in the form of a bland sounding piece of legislation, the Employment Relations Amendment Bill. This law was delayed prior to the election, due to the resignation of the now ex-MP criminal John Banks, but will be enacted within the next 100 days. What is the bill about? read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / workplace struggles / news report Thursday August 23, 2012 15:06 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 17:37 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.

"J'ai aperçu des hommes masqués avec des vêtements avec du rembourrage de protection frapper une femme autour de la tête avec un bâton. Elle était tellement effrayée qu'elle ne pouvait plus bouger même alors qu'ils lui criaient de le faire. Mes ami-e-s et moi l'avons aidé à s'éloigner du lieu où la police battait les gens. La police refusa d'écouter nos appels de détresse pour de l'aide médicale et me poussa plutôt au-dessus de la femme en utilisant un grand bouclier de plastique. Ce ne fut que l'un de nombreux actes de brutalité." [English] read full story / add a comment

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.

Oggi è in gioco la sopravvivenza della difesa collettiva dei diritti dei lavoratori e delle lavoratrici e non solo, di fronte a scelte politiche che tentano di disarmarci per segregarci in un futuro di schiavi, impotenti a reagire alla violenza delle politiche dei padroni. Oggi in piazza dobbiamo esserci in tanti se vogliamo cambiare di segno le politiche autoritarie di una Europa che cerca il suo spazio imperialista attraverso la compressione sociale.

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.

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?
