Picket lines have returned to Insomnia Cookies, less than two weeks after the company settled with four workers who struck in August of 2013. On Friday March 14, two dozen union members and supporters rallied in front of the Boston location of Insomnia Cookies, demanding the reinstatement with back pay of union organizer and bicycle delivery “driver,” Tasia Edmonds. On March 9 the company suspended Edmonds without pay for a month, alleging insubordination, while the union maintains she was disciplined for her union-building efforts. read full story / add a comment

On June 21st, hundreds of food service workers initiated a strike against the Philadelphia-based Food Service company, Aramark, walking off the job and picketing at Boston’s two biggest convention centers: the Hynes Convention Center (HCC) and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC). 350 food workers at the two convention centers, members of Unite Here Local 26, have been without a contract since October, and the company called off all negotiations in May. read full story / add a comment

This Tuesday, “Super Tuesday,” Massachusetts voters will turn in for the Primaries to cast their ballots along with voters in 23 other states. Though it is still very early in the election season, we are already down to 4 candidates for President—two republicans, two democrats, and not one good choice.

This Tuesday, January 5th, anti-authoritarians in Boston will participate in the Northeast Anarchist Network’s campaign to “Discredit Representative Democracy and Promote Direct Democracy,” by answering the call of the Anti-Democratic National Convention organizers—Unconventional Denver—for an International Day of Action against the US elections (See their call below) read full story / add a comment

This August, Boston will remember the 80th anniversary of the execution of radical Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti whose trial is widely regarded as one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in American history. Calling attention to the continued repression of immigrants and radicals, the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society invites all to attend and participate in planned events.

Today, thousands of riot police from the Federal Preventative Police (PFP), armed with shields, batons, and automatic weapons, began the invasion of Oaxaca City, the capital of Oaxaca state, Mexico. The federal forces, under the cover of snipers in helicopters, are using light tanks, water cannons, and bulldozers to slowly remove the hundreds of barricades that have blocked the streets of Oaxaca City since the police were run out of town in June by protesters demanding the resignation of the state governor, Ulises Ruiz Ortiz. read full story / add a comment

This small educational action marked the beginning of an on-going campaign of Boston solidarity with the movement of the popular assemblies in Oaxaca.

Come era facilmente prevedibile le rassicurazioni diffuse e propagandate a piene mani da politici, affaristi, finanzieri e confindustriali sulla possibilità di riprendersi da quella che veniva chiamata crisi si sono dimostrate una colossale bugia. Con una ingombrante operazione di depistaggio mediatico all'insegna di "dobbiamo abbattere il debito pubblico" o "dobbiamo abbattere le Tasse", "l'Europa ce lo chiede", "dobbiamo rispettare i vincoli del deficit imposto", si è proceduto alla cancellazione quasi totale dei diritti dei lavoratori.

Depuis plus de deux ans, le Rojava (Kurdistan syrien), est engagé dans un processus révolutionnaire spécifique. Resté longtemps à l'écart de celui proposé en Syrie car considéré comme trop marqué par l'idéologie panarabe et nationaliste, puis confronté à une contre-révolution interne fasciste et religieux takfiri, le Rojava développe ses propres institutions sociales, chasse les troupes du régime de Bachar, et affronte les forces politico-religieuses ou nationalistes arabes qui tentent de liquider cette dynamique autonomiste.

Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια το κουρδικό κίνημα κινείται προς την κατεύθυνση των ελευθεριακών ιδεών. Αν και δεν είναι ένα αναρχικό κίνημα, αυτή η κίνηση είναι ένα σημάδι ότι οι αναρχικές ιδέες της ελευθερίας και της ισότητας μέσα από την αλληλεγγύη, οι ιδέες μας περί οριζοντιότητας και ριζοσπαστικής άμεσης δημοκρατίας καθώς και η ριζοσπαστική κριτική μας ενάντια στο Κράτος δεν είναι μόνο έγκυρες και ισχυρές, αλλά και αναγκαίες σε κινήματα ώστε να ξεφύγουν από την αυταρχική κληρονομιά στην αριστερά. Είναι καθήκον μας να εκφράσουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας στη Rojava και το κουρδικό κίνημα, επειδή αντιπροσωπεύουν την ελπίδα σε αυτήν την περιοχή και επειδή είναι οι καταπιεσμένοι που αγωνίζονται ενάντια στους καταπιεστές. Οι πραγματικοί αγώνες δεν είναι ποτέ τέλειοι, αλλά κουβαλούν διαφορετικές δυνατότητες για μια ελεύθερη κοινωνία. Εκφράζοντας την αλληλεγγύη μας με το επαναστατικό κίνημα στην Rojava σημαίνει ότι κατανοούμε το ρόλο μας στο να συνεχίσουμε να αναπτύσσουμε τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά των ιδεών μας, προκειμένου να εμπνεύσουμε επαναστάσεις και επαναστάτες σε όλο τον κόσμο.

Da alcuni anni il movimento curdo sta vivendo un processo che si muove in direzione libertaria. Sebbene non si tratti di un movimento anarchico, questo processo indica che le idee anarchiche di libertà ed uguaglianza attraverso la solidarietà, attraverso la nostra idea di orizzontalità e di democrazia diretta e radicale ed attraverso la nostra critica radicale contro lo Stato non solo sono forti e valide, ma sono anche necessarie per i movimenti che vogliano operare una rottura con l'eredità autoritaria all'interno della sinistra. E' nostro dovere esprimere la nostra solidarietà con la Rojava e con il movimento curdo, poiché essi rappresentano una speranza in questa regione e perché si ergono come oppressi in lotta contro i loro oppressori. Le lotte reali non sono mai perfette ma portano con sé diversi gradi di potenzialità di realizzazione di una libera società. Nell'esprimere la nostra solidarietà al movimento rivoluzionario nella Rojava ribadiamo che il nostro ruolo è quello di continuare a sviluppare i principi fondamentali delle nostre idee allo scopo di ispirare le rivoluzioni ed i/le rivoluzionar* di tutto il mondo. - Gruppo Editoriale di Anarkismo.net [English]

rojava_1.png imageInternational Libertarian-Socialist Statement in Solidarity with the Kurdish Resistance 05:36 Sun 19 Oct by Anarchist Organisations and Militants 1 comments

For some years now the Kurdish movement has been moving in the direction of libertarian ideas. While not an anarchist movement, this move is a sign that anarchist ideas of freedom and equality through solidarity, our ideas of horizontality and radical direct democracy and our radical critique against the State are not only valid and strong, but are also necessary for movements in order to break away from the authoritarian legacy within the left. It is our duty to express our solidarity with Rojava and the Kurdish movement, because they represent hope in this region and because they are the oppressed fighting the oppressors. Real struggles are never perfect but they carry diverse degrees of potential to being about a free society. Expressing our solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Rojava means we understand our role is to continue developing the core tenets of our ideas in order to inspire revolutions and revolutionaries all over the world. - Anarkismo.net Editorial Group [Italiano] [Ελληνικά] [Castellano]

Εδώ και ένα μήνα, στην πόλη Κομπανί, κοντά στα σύνορα της Συρίας με την Τουρκία, κουρδικές ένοπλες αντάρτικες ομάδες δίνουν έναν αγώνα ενάντια στους φονταμενταλιστές και επεκτατιστές του ISIS. Η επίθεση ξεκίνησε στις 15/9 όταν χιλιάδες μαχητές του ISIS, υποστηριζόμενοι από δεκάδες άρματα μάχης και βαρύ πυροβολικό επιτέθηκαν στην πόλη σε τρία μέτωπα. Μέχρι αυτή την στιγμή, 2000 κούρδοι πολιτοφύλακες δίνουν ηρωικές μάχες ενάντια στους 10000 μαχητές του ισλαμικού κράτους και έχουν καταφέρει να ανακτήσουν εδάφη μέσα και έξω από την πόλη. Οι απώλειες για τον εχθρό είναι μεγάλες τόσο σε έμψυχο δυναμικό αλλά και όσον αφορά βαρύ οπλισμό και οχήματα που πέφτουν στα χέρια των ανταρτών.

Η κρίση κι ο εμφύλιος πόλεμος στη Συρία άνοιξε μια ακόμη πληγή στην πολύπαθη Μ. Ανατολή που δοκιμάζεται εδώ και δεκαετίες από τις ενδοκαπιταλιστικές συγκρούσεις, τις ιμπεριαλιστικές επεμβάσεις αλλά και τα αυταρχικά και διεφθαρμένα καθεστώτα που υπάρχουν στην περιοχή. Με το πρόσχημα της ανατροπή του Άσαντ οι ΗΠΑ χρηματοδότησαν, εξόπλισαν και εκπαίδευσαν τμήματα της συριακής αντιπολίτευσης, ανάμεσα σε αυτούς και τοπικές ομάδες της Αλ Κάιντα (που υποτίθεται πολεμούν τα τελευταία 15 χρόνια) και ομάδες που συγκρότησαν μετέπειτα το Ισλαμικό Κράτος (IS).

La segunda vuelta de las elecciones brasileras tiene relación directa con: la proyección del país, la alianza estratégica del bloque político del Mercado Común del Sur (MERCOSUR) y el alineamiento del Brasil dentro de la globalización corporativa: La política exterior de Lula extendida por Dilma (con algunas correcciones en su pragmatismo) es estructuralmente distinta de la del período de Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Se cambiaron el eje y el enfoque. A escala mundial nuestro país refuerza las relaciones Sur-Sur, priorizando específicamente las inversiones en infraestructura y cadenas productivas de América Latina y África. Brasil es hoy un motor del capitalismo mundial. Quien gane en las urnas comandará la 7ª economía mundal.

In the October Revolution of 1917, the Bolshevik Party, together with other revolutionaries, overthrew the Provisional Government established in February and – together, initially, with left Social Revolutionaries – seized power. How did the Bolsheviks – a minority just eight months earlier, when the February Revolution overthrew the Tsar and established the Provisional Government – come to power so quickly? How did this small force emerge from relative obscurity to win large sections of the working class to its programme and take power? Herein lies the root and essence of United Front policy in a traditional Marxist sense. First published in issue 88 of Workers World News Part 1: NUMSA and the ‘United Front Against Neoliberalism’
Part 2: Anti-militarist United Fronts and Italy’s “Red week”, 1914
