Today, across Europe, the left is excited by Syriza topping the polls in the Greek election. Some on the left have gone so far as to suggest the election itself will mark the end of austerity policies, in the terminology of the Anglo left, an end to the idea that There Is No Alternative (TINA). Another indication that something of significance is happening is that ahead of the election a new wave of capital flight has started from Greece with an estimated 8 billion transferred out of the country over the last few weeks. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / gender / news report Thursday August 21, 2014 21:31 by andrew   image 1 image
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. read full story / add a comment

Horizontalism is an emerging term used to describe the key common characteristics of the waves of rebellion of the last decade. Occupy in 2011 was the peak to date but the term Horizontalism itself appears to originate the rebellion in Argentina after the 2001 banking crisis there. Marina Sitrin in her book on that rebellion says the term (in Spanish obviously) was used to describe the neighborhood, workplace & unemployed assemblies that emerged to form "social movements seeking self-management, autonomy and direct democracy."

international / the left / opinion / analysis Saturday February 15, 2014 20:10 by andrew Flood   image 1 image
The nostalgic left is a bit of shorthand I’ve started using for those on the left who have reacted to the disintegration of the old left by wishing for idealised simpler times. And perhaps more strangely blaming the collapse on what they see as threatening new developments, like intersectionality. They hold such newfangled nonsense responsible for the current failure of the left to get an echo from the general population. read full story / add a comment

In 2012 the attempt by the government to Quebec to introduce a 75% fee hike was defeated by the organisation of a mass student strike that lasted over 6 months. That fee increase was part of the global process of imposing the privatisation and commodification of education. Since the victory, organisers of the strike have been being doing speaking tours to aid the process whereby "youth and students everywhere are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to organize as a means to defend education as a social right". In September this tour reaches Ireland where we need to hear how a sustained and militant student movement that can win is built. read full story / add a comment

Despite spending in the region of a million euro and getting the backing of the catholic church its now clear that the anti-choice extremists of Youth Defence & the Pro Life Campaign were resoundingly defeated when the Dail finally voted though legislation implementing the X-Case judgment of 21 years ago. This time last year they were confident that they already had enough Fine Gael TD's on board to block the required legislation but they reckoned against the wave of public anger that followed the death of Savita Halappanavar after she was denied a potentially life saving abortion in a Galway hospital. read full story / add a comment

Tear gas is a very good place to start trying to understand what is happening in Turkey.  The main purpose of tear gas is to terrorise and thus break up large crowds of people.  In Istanbul over the last weeks huge quantities have been used over and over to prevent large anti-government demonstrations developing. This wasn't about 'riot control' - generally there was no riot to control.  In this piece I'm going to put the Gezi park revolt in the context of the cycle of struggles that began in 2010 and of the specific economic, politcal and historical situation of the Turkish republic to try and draw out the lessons for all of us fighting global capitalism read full story / add a comment

And we have to work out how we create unions that we control and which will help us organise together to defend our common interests. How has it come to this? read full story / add a comment

The government says if we Vote no to Croke Park they will impose it anyway. Many of the union leadership try and scare us into voting Yes with this threat and by saying the only alternative is strike action. Both are right. If we just vote no than the government will attack us. And when they do the only way we can win is if we are willing to fight back - that will mean industrial action. It will almost certainly mean at least the credible threat of an indefinite strike. read full story / add a comment

internaţional / anarchist circulaţie / opinion/analysis Wednesday January 30, 2013 10:27 by andrew Flood   image 2 images
În ultimul deceniu, o critică generalizată a civilizației a fost formulată de către un număr de autori, predominant din SUA. Unii dintre aceștia au ales să se identifice drept anarhiști, deși auto-indentificarea generală este de primitivist (sau din păcate “anarho”-primitivism). Argumentul lor general este că “civilizația” în sine este problema care duce la incapacitatea noastră de a trăi o viață plină de satisfacții. Astfel, lupta pentru schimbare este o luptă împotriva civilizației și pentru un pământ unde tehnologia a fost eliminată.
Critica primitivistă a anarhismului se bazează în jurul susţinerii că ar fi descoperit o contradicție între libertate și societatea de masă. În alte cuvinte, ei văd ca o imposibilitate orice societate care implică grupuri mult mai mari decât un sat să fie o societate liberă. Dacă acest lucru ar fi fost adevărat, atunci ar face propunerea anarhistă a unei lumi a “federațiilor libere formate din municipii, orașe și sate o imposibilitate. Astfel de federații și centre de populație sunt în mod evident o formă de societate de masă/civilizație. [English] read full story / add a comment
Lui vota "a favore della vita"
irlanda / gran bretagna / genero / cronaca Wednesday January 23, 2013 22:06 by andrew   image 6 images
Sabato a Dublino ha visto un altro disperato tentativo da parte della coalizione "anti-scelta" [ossia contro la scelta della donna di decidere - ndt.] di evitare che il Dáil (la Camera irlandese) introduca legislazione che permetterebbe l'aborto in casi in cui la vita della donna è in pericolo. Nonostante mesi di preparazione, comportando una spesa che deve essere stato vicino a un milione di euro, e nonostante che i parroci, durante la messa in ogni parocchia, abbiano reso obbligatorio la partecipazione a tutti i cattolici, meno di 15.000 si sono presentati alla manifestazione. Rispetto alle 150.000 donne che hanno dovuto viaggiare per ottenere aborti negli ultimi decenni, ciò equivale a quasi nulla, un pugno di fanatici trasportati in autobus da tutto il paese.

Saturday in Dublin saw another desperate attempt by the anti-choice coalition to prevent legislation coming to the Dail (Irish parliament) to allow abortion where a women's life is under threat. Despite months of preparation, a spend that must have ran close to a million euro, and the parish priest at every mass in the country telling catholics they should attend, less that 15,000 turned up. Compared to the 150,000 women who have had to travel to obtain abortions in the last ecades this amounts to almost nothing, a handful of bigots bussed in from all over the country.

This afternoon the government had finally confirmed that it is to legislate for abortion access under the conditions of the X-case. While we can welcome the failure of the anti-choice movement to stop this announcement, despite frantically spending a quarter of a million dollars euro in ten days, this is so little so late that it is almost meaningless. read full story / add a comment

Roughly 1,000 people protested at the Dail (parliament building) in Dublin Wednesday night as yet another austerity budget was debated. As with previous budgets the new flat rate taxes, PRSI & excise hikes will mean workers & those on low income will be hit hard while the richest 1% will hardly notice any difference. read full story / add a comment

Last night saw hundreds of pro-choice activists blockade the gates of the Dáil after TD's once more refused to pass X-case legislation. Twenty years after the X-case and one month after the death of Savita Halappanavar women in Ireland were told once more that the politicians had not had enough time. The political parties, in particular the Labour Party, were once more engaged in a cynical game of playing politics - a game that leaves pregnant women at continued risk in Irish hospitals. read full story / add a comment

La arrolladora victoria electoral de Syriza en los comicios de ayer domingo en Grecia, expresa ante todo el sentimiento mayoritario de rechazo del pueblo griego en contra del traspaso de las deudas de los ricos al pueblo. Pero también expresa un deseo de renovación de la política, en sintonía con esa “indignación” que recorre a la juventud en gran parte del mundo, cansada de la política elitista en beneficio exclusivo del 1% de los súper-ricos, pero que tampoco se siente representada en una izquierda anquilosada, cuyas prácticas, al final de cuentas, no difieren tanto de la politiquería tradicional.

imageJoaquim Levy e o mito do governo em disputa Jan 20 by BrunoL 0 comments

Parece que finalmente caiu a máscara e o poder central no 3º turno negociado expôs a sua verdadeira face – ou ao menos a face hegemônica. Na reportagem de CartaCapital de 18 de janeiro de 2015 (de Carlos Drummond) o ajuste fiscal aplicado pelo ministro da Fazenda Joaquim Levy foi caracterizado como "punhalada fiscal". O bom repórter da publicação que apoia o governo de centro-direita marcado pelo lulismo, ao ouvir fontes como dirigentes de centrais sindicais mais que acostumados a "dialogar" com o governo, as medidas implicam em tentativa de redução de déficit estrutural de 1,2% do PIB. A intenção de Levy e sua equipe (ou a equipe econômica indicada por Dilma, pós-graduada em economia pela Unicamp) como se sabe, intenta "sinalizar ao mercado" e outras balelas indicando que o Estado precisa diminuir seu papel e reforçar seu caráter de classe. Embora a sociedade brasileira seja bastante complexa para um país ocidental e o aparelho de Estado do governo central esteja recheada de interesses diretos e insulamentos tecnocráticos, no fundo o que está em jogo é a definição do caráter de classe do Estado e a diminuição do poder do voto individual na democracia indireta apresentada como melhor saída
