Durante le ultime elezioni, il multi-milionario John Key, leader del National Party di centro-destra, aveva dichiarato che avrebbe privatizzato parte delle aziende di stato, se fosse stato rieletto. Il suo principale avversario - ancorché perdente - era il Labour Party, all'epoca guidato dal poco carismatico Phil Goff, che era stato uno degli architetti delle privatizzazioni degli anni '80. Il National Party ha ora deciso di procedere nella realizzazione di questa minaccia. Toccherebbe ora al gruppo Mighty River Power, una compagnia che produce energia, oltre ad altri gioiellini di stato messi in palio per il futuro. Quali saranno gli effetti di queste grandi privatizzazioni? Quali opzioni hanno i lavoratori in Aotearoa/Nuova Zelanda? [English] read full story / add a comment

During the last election the centre-right National Party led by multi-millionaire John Key, said it would partly privatise certain state assets if re-elected. Its main losing rival was the Labour Party, at the time lead by the uncharismatic Phil Goff, who had been one of the architects of the privitisation push in the 1980s. National has now decided to press ahead with its threat. The power company Mighty River Power is the current focus of attention, with other goodies up for grabs in the future.

We strive for a society in which one person or group of people do not dominate or exploit another. In such a society there would be no basis for sexual oppression, domination, or class exploitation. We must work to replace the institutions of power, the nation-state, and capitalism with a worldwide system of grassroots empowerment and self-management of all facets of social and economic life. read full story / add a comment

Once again violence has flared across Belfast and other parts of the north as protests continue around the flags issue. The latest disturbances come as Stormont Assembly leaders, Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness meet to discuss another wave of street protests, and their concerns about the damaging effect it is having on the economy leading up to the busiest shopping period of the calendar. But as each issued a separate statement calling for protests to come to an end, loyalist gangs flexed their muscles, blocking off streets and hijacking cars. read full story / add a comment

Undoubtedly, Greece is the country that has suffered the most during this last and totally unrestrained wave of liberalization and fierce devaluation of labour which has been sweeping Europe since the start of the financial crisis in 2008. At the same time there are a multitude of political anti-systemic oppositional forces which have managed to maintain a living presence in Greek society.

Welcome to Irish Anarchist Review issue 5, produced by the Workers Solidarity Movement. In this magazine we look to explore theories, thoughts and ideas about political struggle. We set out to analyse where we are aiming for as a revolutionary movement and explore how we might get there. The purpose of ‘Irish Anarchist Review’ is to act as forum for a sharing of ideas about revolutionary struggle. Building a successful revolution demands genuine discussion, debate and sharing of ideas. We hope that the articles in here will help to stimulate discussion and provoke debate and perhaps even motivate some of our readers to respond with articles of your own. read full story / add a comment

Shell to Sea have released a very detailed report into the GSOC 'investigation' of the Garda at the center of the 'Corrib Cops Rape Tape' which first came to public attention one year ago today. The report reveals that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) engaged in spin and misinformation that misled the public over the Corrib ‘rape’ recording incident of March 2011 and undermined the case against Gardaí. The report details GSOC’s attempts to serve the interests of An Garda Síochána by undermining the women who made the recording public, while deflecting attention from the behaviour of Gardaí. The document was prepared by Shell to Sea with one of the women about whom the ‘rape’ comments were made and seven academics at NUI Maynooth. It has been made available online as a PDF and we are republishing it here: read full story / add a comment

El Frente de Trabajadores y Trabajadoras Ernesto Miranda (FTEM), es un nuevo espacio organizativo de carácter político-social, asentado por ahora en la Región Metropolitana, en la cual convergen militantes del ámbito del trabajo: trabajadores y trabajadoras de base, dirigentes, delegados y compas vinculados a áreas técnicas o profesionales de apoyatura a la labor sindical. Este núcleo militante rescata la tradición organizativa que dio origen a la CUT del ‘53, así como a la figura de Ernesto Miranda Rivas, dirigente anarquista del gremio del cuero y calzado, promotor de la unidad de la clase trabajadora en la lucha por su emancipación en torno a los principios como la independencia política, la democracia directa, la solidaridad, el internacionalismo y el anticapitalismo.

La guerra di Israele su Gaza intendeva indebolire Hamas ma renderlo indipendente dall'Autorità in Cisgiordania. Un mese e mezzo è passato ed Israele non riesce a fermare il lancio di razzi di Hamas su Israele. Hamas ha chiesto ad alta voce la rimozione dell'assedio ed il primo ministro israeliano non ha avuto l'appoggio necessario dalla sua coalizione per il necessario compromesso. Per diminuire le perdite e per salvare la faccia Israele con il sostegno degli USA stanno ora delegando la questione a quel Consiglio di Sicurezza dell'ONU di cui Israele non si è curato per molti anni.

Public Tev-Dem meeting in Qamishli to discuss attacks by al-Nusra imageThe experiment of West Kurdistan (Syrian Kurdistan) has proved that people can make changes 16:21 Sun 24 Aug by Zaher Baher 0 comments

What you read below is the experience of my visit, for a couple of weeks in May this year, 2014, to North East of Syria or Syrian Kurdistan (West of Kurdistan) with a close friend of mine. Throughout the visit we had the total freedom and opportunity to see and speak to whoever we wanted to. This includes women, men, youth, and the political parties. There are over 20 parties from Kurdish to Christian, of which some are in the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) or Democratic Self Management (DSM) of the region of Al Jazera. Al Jazera is one of three regions, (cantons) of West Kurdistan. We also met the Kurdish and Christian political parties who are not in the DSA or DSM. In addition, we met the top people from the Democratic Self Administration (DSM), members of the different committees, local groups and communes as well as businesspeople, shopkeepers, workers, people in the market and people who were just walking in the street.

textPalestine-Israel, The war assault on Gaza failed to bring the expected results and even back fired* 14:09 Sun 24 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

The war Israel started with the Hamas was intended to keep it weaker but independent of the west bank authority. A month and a half and Israel cannot stop the Hamas firing of rockets on Israel. The Hamas raised its demand about the lifting of the siege (closer) and the Israeli prime minister failed go get the support of his coalition for the needed compromise. To diminish the losses and to save face Israel with US backing are passing the decision to the UN security council the Israeli ruling elite evaded successfully so many years. The mounting economic pressures create cracks in the Israeli ruling elite and even the populist coalition party head - the foreign minister, start to promote the end of the 1967 occupation. And the joint popular grass root struggle continue - within Israel at the Arkib Bedouins as focus, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Neby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills. [Italiano]

sorrymigrantx.jpg imageIreland - Migrant X refused an abortion and forced to have a C-section 22:31 Thu 21 Aug by Andrew 0 comments

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.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

A crise do Iraque já se arrasta há décadas.

Israele aveva iniziato il suo attacco a Gaza per sabotare il compromesso tra Hamas e l'Autorità Palestinese e per restaurare un governo indipendente di un indebolito Hamas sulla Striscia di Gaza. Il compromesso di Hamas doveva essere una risposta al blocco egiziano finalizzato a smantellare Hamas stesso. Il fallito attacco israeliano porterà ad una significativa apertura del confine tra Israele e la Striscia di Gaza laddove prima dell'attacco passa lo stretto necessario in una situazione sull'orlo di una catastrofe umanitaria.

textPalestine-Israel, Israel attack on Gaza ending with a defeat of its arrogant power show* 19:34 Tue 12 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Israel started the attack on the Hamas to sabotage the Hamas compromise with the west bank authority, and restore a weakened Hamas independent rule in the Gaza strip. Hamas compromise was a response to Egyptian closer intended to dismantle the Hamas. The failed Israeli attack will force it to contribute its share to significantly open the closer of the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which was till the attack based on the bare minimal on the margin of humanitarian catastrophe. Whatever the details of the new cease fire and arrangements, the failure of Israel vicious assault to stop the Hamas from firing rockets on Israel is a significant "game changer". The failed attack on Gaza and the continuing popular struggle in the west bank are hastening the international pressures to end the occupation of the West bank and the closer of the Gaza strip.

Marina Silva, ex-senadora pelo PT do Acre, ex-ministra do Meio Ambiente (MMA) durante o governo de Lula e ex-candidata a presidente como um enxerto no Partido Verde no pleito de 2010, está arrancando nas contestadas pesquisas de intenção de voto da segunda metade de agosto de 2014. Restando menos de 45 dias para a apuração de 1º turno, Marina cresce com a exposição permanente, sem críticas - em função do velório de Eduardo Campos e a comoção do país na sequência -, conseguindo esconder quase totalmente, as fragilidades de seu programa de governo.

Este Martes [19 de Agosto] se realizó una consulta por parte del colegio de profesores en torno a la propuesta elaborada por el gobierno sobre la situación del profesorado, esta propuesta fue rechazada enérgicamente por las bases del colegio de profesores tensionando a los intereses partidarios de su dirección. Por otro lado profesores y trabajadores de la educación se organizan en paralelo al magisterio al cual critican de no representar a la mayoría de los profesores ya que muy pocos profesores están colegiados y en su mayoría son profesores jubilados, es en ese contexto donde surgen organizaciones de base en torno a demandas como el 50/50 de horas lectivas y no lectivas.

Όπως στη γραμματική υπάρχουν οι κύριες και οι δευτερεύουσες προτάσεις, έτσι και στη ζωή υπάρχουν τα κύρια και τα δευτερεύοντα ζητήματα. Η υπόνοια ότι τα μεν είναι σημαντικά και τα δε ασήμαντα είναι ελαφρώς απατηλή. Ακριβώς με τον ίδιο τρόπο που αν αφαιρέσεις μια δευτερεούσα πρόταση από μία φράση η κύρια μπορεί να στέκει άλογη και ακατανόητη, έτσι και τα δευτερεύοντα (ή δευτερογενή) πράγματα στη ζωή είναι συχνά απαραίτητα για να αποκτούν λογική και ουσία τα κύρια.

(by: Bruno Lima Rocha. Translated by: Daniel Gutiérrez)

The BRICS alliance — a bloc of countries formed by the meetings of their leaders and without any formal documentation — has once again caught the world’s attention for trying a new hand in global power politics. The premise of the relationship between Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa is based on the economy and the potential of sharing a common destination point. Culturally, Brazil is most similar to post-Apartheid South Africa, and proportionally we carry a similar weight to Latin America, as does South Africa to sub-saharan Africa.

La crise irakienne est continue depuis des décennies, tant sous le régime de Saddam Hussein que sous le « régime démocratique actuel » depuis l'invasion de 2003. Il n'y avait ni de liberté, ni de justice sociale, ni d'égalité et peu de perspectives pour celles et ceux qui étaient indépendant des partis politiques au pouvoir. En plus de la brutalité existante et la discrimination contre les femmes et les genTEs ordinaires, un très grand fossé a été creusé entre les riches et les pauvres, rendant les pauvres de plus en plus pauvres et les riches de plus en plus riches.
