In a wide ranging interview Paul Bowman talked to Felipe Corrêa (FC)  a Brazilian anarchist who is member of Organização Anarquista Socialismo Libertário [Libertarian Socialist Anarchist Organization] (OASL) about anarchist orgainising in Brasil, just how global the crisis really is and the forthcoming World Cup. read full story / add a comment

Sabato 16 marzo i ciprioti si sono svegliati con la notizia di essere in procinto di essere derubati. Con un agguato pre-programmato e pianificato per concidere con un weekend di vacanza delle banche locali, i burocrati dell'Eurozona hanno minacciato di bancarotta il sistema bancario cipriota facendo paventare un ritiro immediato del supporto di liquidità da parte della BCE.

This Saturday morning Cypriot people woke up to the news that they were about to be robbed. In a pre-planned ambush scheduled to coincide with a local bank holiday weekend, Eurozone apparatchiks threatened to bankrupt the Cypriot banking system by immediate withdrawal of the ECB liquidity support.

The rain is pouring, Summer's over and the Eurozone crisis is back from his hols. Timed nicely to coincide with the brutal Spanish riot police attack on the indignados protest outside the Madrid parliament, yesterday's statement by the remaining triple-AAA rated "Nordic Front" of Germany, Finland and the Netherlands, has put the cat back amongst the pigeons. read full story / add a comment

Come un incidente d'auto al rallentatore, l'inarrestabile crisi dell'Eurozona ha toccato un altro punto di crisi. Le elezioni in Francia ed in Grecia, le elezioni tedesche in Renania Settentrionale-Vestfalia e le nuove elezioni in Grecia il prossimo mese, hanno portato i sintomi di sofferenza della Eurozona a livelli di panico. Sull'intera situazione grava lo spettro di una morte annunciata: un funerale per l'icona dell'euro come un partito che nessuno vuole abbandonare. [English] read full story / add a comment

Ed eccoci alla fine dell'estate. E' tempo per i politici e per i burocrati dell'Eurozona di far ritorno ai propri uffici e di dare un'occhiata alle cose da fare. Per la stessa ragione è tempo anche per noi, che siamo interessati a lottare contro l'Europa della Austerity, fare il punto della situazione. [English] read full story / add a comment

The big bad ECB wolf is a-huffing and a-puffing but the first of the three little pigs is showing no signs of surrendering just yet. And behind the spectacle of the Greek populace standing up against its government and the core EU powers, lurks a recent historical shadow - a spectre is haunting Europe, the spectre of Yugoslavia. read full story / add a comment

Ma occorre rendersi conto che dietro questa logica brutale non c'è il FMI guidato da Washington, bensì l'Eurozona. [English] read full story / add a comment

Slaughter in Gaza. It's in the papers, on the radio, on the TV news. We stare numbed at the images of horror while eating our dinner. And then the spokespeople, one after another. Hamas are blaming Israel. Israel and the US are blaming Hamas. The Europeans and the rest of the world are blaming the US. One one thing they are all agreed, it's not their fault, the blood is on somebody else's hands. Meanwhile bloodied parents stagger through the streets of Gaza bearing the shattered bodies of their children. read full story / add a comment

La historia oficial cuenta que los orígenes de la actual crisis recae en el colapso del mercado de créditos subprime norteamericano, es decir, créditos otorgados a personas pobres que no pueden pagar sus hipotecas. Aunque éste pudo haber sido el evento detonante de la crisis, cabe subrayar que no su causal real. read full story / add a comment

The official story is that the origins of the current crisis lie in the collapse of the US subprime mortgage market - i.e. poor people not paying their mortgages. Although this may have been the trigger event, it is not the real cause. The real cause lies in pyramids not houses. Specifically the enormous debt pyramid built up by the Western countries read full story / add a comment

Imagine that, leaving the pub on Saturday night, you find a fight outside. The Gardai turn up, grab a load of people, including you, and drag you off to the station, and throw in a beating in the back of the van. Next morning you are taken to an interview room and an old garda gives you a cup of tea, apologises for the “mix-up” earlier and says you can go as soon as you’ve signed a 6 page statement he’s prepared for you. read full story / add a comment

Its not that important to get hung up on a name, for many people the Concise definition of communism being something to do with Marx and the USSR is the one they know. For us the name of the post-capitalist society we aim to help construct is a detail, what matters is the content of the ideas. This article opens by looking at how the meaning of communism as opposed to socialism evolved in the late nineteenth century and closes with a look at how this applies to the free software movement today. It was written for Red and Black Revolution - the magazine of the Workers Solidarity Movement. read full story / add a comment

International Womens Day in Ireland saw thousands take to the streets in a sequence of 'in work time' protests under the heading 'Strike4Repeal'. Abortion is illegal in almost all circumstances and the protests were an attempt by pro-choice activists to forced the government to stop delaying a referendum to repeal the anti-choice 8th Amendment placed in the Irish constitution in 1983. Workers Solidarity Movement members took part in organising the day and in the aftermath produced a number of articles and videos detailing what happened.

The arrest on the 11th of March occurred outside the migrant housing squat (Alkiviadou) which was evicted by the police just two days later. The police still arrested these four comrades even after they were informed that the group was acting in defence of neighbourhood squats, thus the arrest was explicitly political. The Police are thus responsible for making squats more vulnerable to fascist attacks, which is in line with the state strategy to destroy self-organized migrant housing communities.

Después de que el pasado miércoles el imperio agroindustrial de INCAUCA asesinara al comunero indígena y Liberador de tierra JAVIER OTECA en la hacienda Miraflores de Corinto, el día de hoy aparece una nueva amenaza paramilitar contra el proceso de Liberación de la Emperatriz, en Caloto. Como otros panfletos que circulan en el Norte del Cauca desde enero del presente año, el grupo paramilitar de las Águilas Negras aparece como el autor de las amenazas de muerte, lo preocupante es que en este caso aparece el nombre y los apellidos de 13 Liberadores de Tierra de la Emperatriz. Además se ofrece dinero por el asesinato de cualquiera de ellos.

Hoy 22 de marzo a la 1:30 pm fue asesinado en la zona rural de Corinto el indígena y liberador de la Madre Tierra JAVIER OTECA. Este asesinato fue perpetrado por miembros de la seguridad privada de la hacienda Miraflores, con complicidad de Ejercito Nacional quienes, pese a que se encontraban a pocos metros del lugar donde fue baleado JAVIER OTECA, no hicieron nada por detener a los responsables sino que, por el contrario, cubrieron su escape.

Our global society is broken. Donald Trump & Brexit are symptoms along with the rise of the far right elsewhere in Europe. In an old pattern, fundamental economic crisis often results in society becoming very much more brutal for most people.  In the age of nuclear weapons this current crisis could be our last.  And with a somewhat longer countdown to disaster we are also facing climate catastrophe.

Los muertos también se han convertido en un campo de batalla en Colombia. Cuanto tengamos, efectivamente, paz en los cementerios, es cuando la paz realmente termine de materializarse en Colombia. Cuando el cuerpo de Trofijo pueda encontrar un lugar definitivo de descanso, sin el temor de que paramilitares o el propio ejército lo exhumen para jugar fútbol con su cráneo, es cuando sabremos que realmente estamos en paz. Cuando los familiares puedan sacar a los guerrilleros que quedaron enterrados en cementerios escondidos en la selva y volverlos a sus veredas para despedirse humanamente de ellos.
