A large force of Garda and council workers were deployed at 3.30am today, International Women's Day, to clear Occupy Dame Street (ODS) camp. The camp was completely demolished in the course of the eviction, campers intimidated and their personal property stolen. This was a level of force way out of proportion with the numbers in the camp (about 15 people) and stands in contrast with the lack of resources put into investigating what happened at Anglo, the collapse of which has left a debt of 26,000 Euro on every single person in the country.   [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

An Irish anarchist perspective on today's EU crisis summit decision to reduce Greek debt by 50%, in the face of the recent resistance by the Greek working class. Particularly as contrasted with the differing levels of resistence in Ireland and the corresponding dictat of making the people of Ireland pay 100% of the debts incurred in the Irish property boom casino by globalised finance. read full story / add a comment

The 'Occupy X' movement arrived in Ireland over the weekend when a core group of around 50 people set up camp at the Central Bank Plaza on Dame street. Numbers grew to a few hundred at times over the next days and nights as supporters came down to join in for a while and the curious stopped to see what was going on. Issues highlighted by participants included the bank bail out, IMF intervention & the ongoing Great Oil & Gas Giveaway. read full story / add a comment

The sudden end of the Gaddafi regime some 6 months after the start of the Libyan revolt leaves some difficult questions unanswered for the left. Gaddafi’s determination to physically crush the revolt quickly transformed it into a civil war, a civil war that saw considerable imperialist intervention on the rebel side, intervention that was essential to their eventual victory. This and Gaddafi’s historic record led to some on the left taking his side in the civil war while other organisations tried to balance support for the ‘Arab spring’s’ arrival in Libya with opposition to imperialism.

Μια λαϊκή παροιμία της Αϊτής λέει «Tanbou prete pa janm fe bon dans» («Ένα δανεισμένο τύμπανο ποτέ δεν παράγει καλό χορό»), δείχνοντας μια γενική συνειδητοποίηση του ποιος είναι ο πραγματικός ρόλος της εξωτερικής παρέμβασης. Φυσικά, αν η ιμπεριαλιστική επέμβαση δεν τελείωσε το1790, δεν τελείωσε και η αντίσταση του λαού της Αϊτής. Η αλληλεγγύη με τον λαό της Αϊτής δεν αρχίζει και τελειώνει με αφορμή αυτόν τον τραγικό σεισμό, αλλά πρέπει να επεκταθεί στους αγώνες που θα ξετυλιχθούν στον απόηχό του, ενάντια στον «καπιταλισμό της καταστροφής» που επιχειρείται τώρα να επιβληθεί.

Καθώς οι προβλέψεις για τον αριθμό των νεκρών από το σεισμοί στην Αϊτή μιλούν για πάνω από 200.000, οι ειδήσεις στο ABC News ανέφεραν ότι τα αεροπλάνα που μεταφέρουν ιατρικό εξοπλισμό και εφόδια αρωγής πρέπει να αντιμετωπίσουν στρατιώτες για τον πολύτιμο διαθέσιμο χρόνο στο αεροδρόμιο του Πορτ-ο-Πρενς που εξαγοράστηκε από τον στρατό των ΗΠΑ μετά το σεισμό. Από την έναρξη της μεγάλης δημοκρατικής εξέγερσης ενάντια στο καθεστώς σκλαβιάς σχεδόν 220 χρόνια πριν, η Αϊτή έχει παρουσιαστεί ως μια επικίνδυνη χώρα ανίκανη να διεκπεραιώσει τις δικές της υποθέσεις και απαιτεί την ξένη επέμβαση. read full story / add a comment

In the latest round of attacks on ordinary workers in order to force us to pay for the crisis in capitalism the government had "declared a moratorium on Recruitment and Promotions in the Public Service with effect from 27th March". This is both yet another direct attack on public sector workers and an indirect attack on all workers as it means our access to health, education and other essential services will be further reduced. read full story / add a comment

The Olympics Resistance Network is a space to coordinate anti-colonial and anti-capitalist efforts against the 2010 Games within Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories. Our organizing is based on the recognition that the Olympics is taking place on unceded Native land, and exists to create a movement for all anti capitalist, Indigenous, anti poverty, labour, migrant justice, housing, environmental justice, civil libertarian, anti war, and anti colonial activists to join forces. We come together on the basis of anti-oppression principles and with a respect for diversity of tactics. In addition to building ongoing educational and resistance efforts, we are working towards a convergence between February 10th-15th 2010, based on the call by the Indigenous Peoples Gathering in Sonora, Mexico to boycott the Games. read full story / add a comment

Net als met het anarchisme zijn er veel manieren om te denken over het anarchafeminisme. Het kan worden gezien als een manier om anarchistische ideeen binnen de feministische beweging te bevorderen of vice versa - om feministische ideeen binnen de anarchistische beweging te bevorderen. Maar het anarchafeminisme is niet eenvoudigweg een mengsel van mensen die bij beide betrokken zijn. Het anarchisme en het feminisme delen diepe verbindingen. read full story / add a comment

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. Tanto o regime Saddam Hussein tanto quanto sob a atual "democracia", desde a invasão de 2003, não há liberdade, justiça social, igualdade e há poucas perspectivas para aqueles que são independentes aos partidos políticos no poder. Além da brutalidade e discriminação contra as mulheres e as minorias, um grande abismo foi criado entre os ricos e os pobres, fazendo com que os pobres ficassem cada vez mais pobres e os ricos mais ricos.

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.

textPalestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria in tempi di guerra 17:07 Wed 06 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Le lotte unitarie nelle solite località di Bil'in, Ni'lin, Ma'sara, Sheikh Jarrah, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, le colline a ovest di Hebron, svoltesi nel weekend ed in settimana, si sono focalizzate sulla guerra a Gaza e sugli aspetti più evidenti dell'occupazione. Ad oggi, sembra che Israele abbia fallito l'obiettivo di insediare a Gaza un governo di Hamas indipendente ma indebolito, dato che le atrocità commesse su Gaza non sono riuscite a suscitare una pressione internazionale sufficiente a spingere l'Egitto ad allentare l'assedio su Gaza. Pare che tra Hamas e l'Autorità Palestinese in Cisgiordania verrà rinnovato quel patto che Israele ha così strenuamente cercato di sabotare. [English]

Bruno Lima Rocha, 18 de agosto de 2014

O Comitê de Determinações da Associação Internacional de Swaps e Derivativos (ISDA, ver o site equivale a uma instância globalizada de classificação de “riscos”, afirmando, por exemplo, se algum país está em default (calote) ou não. Este órgão foi criado em 2009, para tentar impor uma legitimidade a partir dos próprios fraudadores do sistema financeiro mundial. O jornal O Globo, em sua edição de 1º de agosto (página 24, em matéria de Marcio Beck e Rennan Setti) apresenta a informação dos componentes deste Comitê, sem fazer o contraponto do passado recente destes conglomerados do cassino do capital fictício. Bastaria consultar o domínio do Comitê, observar a composição dos membros das Américas e cruzar com informações difundidas pela grande mídia para dar-se conta de que, literalmente, quem está arbitrando o conflito é parte geradora da quebradeira de setembro de 2008.

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.
