The overthrow of the authoritarian regime of Yanukovych by no means signifies for us the end of our fight. New dictators hasten to take the place of the Party of Regions. They will not hesitate to rely not only on considerably weakened security agencies, but on the far right militants as well. The regime of police and prosecutorial arbitrariness deserved its overthrow unconditionally, but now there may come a time for a new terror that will justify itself ideologically.

Since 2009 the US state has been undertaking Quantitative Easing (QE), which has involved the US state creating $ 85 billion a month, effectively electronically printing money out of thin air, and linking this to the “purchasing” of paper assets like US government bonds and also more importantly mortgaged backed securities from banks, hedge funds, private equity firms, and asset management companies, which lost their value when the capitalist crisis hit hard in 2008. Through this, these financial institutions and banks have been given up to $ 85 billion a month for the last five years. Much of this money has been used by these corporations to increase their speculative activity, including speculating on government bonds sold by the likes of the South African, Brazilian, Argentinean, and Turkish states. Now the US state has been looking to start tapering QE and speculators as a result are exiting these government bond markets. As this article explores it will probably not be the ruling class (capitalists and top state officials) that suffer the worst convulsions associated with tapering, although they may be affected, but the working class in countries such as South Africa, Brazil, Indonesia, India, Argentina and Turkey. This article examines why and how this could take place, how ruling classes from different countries are trying to protect themselves; and why and how the working class will in all likelihood be worst hit. In order to, however, understand how the class war around QE is unfolding it is important first to look at the role states have played during the crisis, along with the competition that exists between states.

Le renversement du régime autoritaire de Ianoukovitch ne signifie nullement, pour nous, la fin de notre combat. Les nouveaux dictateurs s’empressent de prendre la place du Parti des Régions. Ils n’hésiteront à s’appuyer non seulement sur les agences de sécurité considérablement affaiblies, mais aussi sur les militants d’extrême droite. Le régime de l’arbitraire en matière de police et de poursuites judiciaires méritait absolument d’être renversé, mais maintenant, une nouvelle période de terreur, qui sera justifiée idéologiquement, peut arriver. read full story / add a comment

Hace dos semanas, Nosotros los Pobres tuvimos la buena fortuna de poder presentar un taller que contaba con dos integrantes del Frente de Estudiantes Libertarios de Chile, con quienes tuvimos un intercambio sumamente productivo de ideas. Pocos días después, llegue a ver una declaración publicada por el FEL en la cual afirmaban su apoyo al “pueblo venezolano “ en su lucha contra el golpismo. Como miembro de Nosotros los Pobres, quería compartir algunas reflecciones sobre lo que pasa en Venezuela, tanto ahora como a través de los últimos 15 años; espero que sean de interes para mis compañeros especifistas como también para las personas que generalmente se han preocupado por el caso venezolano. read full story / add a comment

Свержение авторитарного режима Януковича отнюдь не обозначает для нас конец борьбы. На смену Партии Регионов спешат новые диктаторы, которые будут без стеснения опираться не только на изрядно ослабевший силовой аппарат, но и на ультраправых боевиков. Режим милицейского и прокурорского беспредела безоговорочно заслуживал свержения, но сейчас может настать время нового террора, который теперь будет обосновывать себя идеологически.

Όσα διαδραματίζονται αυτές τις μέρες στην Ουκρανία είναι το ξέσπασμα μιας μακράς ιστορικά περιόδου, που περιλαμβάνει πολλές αντιθέσεις και συγκρουόμενες δυνάμεις. Δεν είναι ασήμαντο το γεγονός ότι όλα όσα βλέπουμε αυτές τις μέρες συμβαίνουν σε ένα κράτος του λεγόμενου δυτικού κόσμου. Όσοι δεν έχουν υπόψη τους το νήμα που συνδέει αυτές τις μέρες με το παρελθόν της Ουκρανίας ίσως και να ξαφνιάστηκαν για το πώς θα μπορούσε να ξεσπάσει ένας εμφύλιος πόλεμος, εκεί όπου οι πολιτισμένοι εξουσιαστές λύνουν συνήθως τις διαφωνίες τους στα διπλωματικά τραπέζια. Η αλήθεια όμως είναι ότι όλο το προηγούμενο διάστημα προετοιμαζόταν συστηματικά το ξέσπασμα που παρακολουθούμε. read full story / add a comment

Il movimento anarchico coreano voleva costruire una società anarchica indipendente ed autogovernata, un sistema cooperativo delle masse del popolo coreano. Volevano prendersi il progresso civile portato dalla classe capitalista per restituirlo alle classi popolari. In questo modo, la società capitalista e coloniale che esisteva allora in Corea (come in altri posti dell'Africa, dell'Asia e dell'Europa) sarebbe stata sostituita con una nuova società. Questa nuova società si sarebbe fondata sui principi di libertà ed uguaglianza che garantiscono l'autogoverno indipendente delle classi produttrici: la classe operaia e contadina.

mashrek / arabia / irak / lotte sul territorio / cronaca Thursday February 27, 2014 15:57 byIlan S.
I media israeliani sono del tutto ossessionati dalla escalation della campagna Boycott, Disinvest, Sanctions come se sapessero cose che non possono rivelare. Sia i sostenitori che i detrattori della fine dell'occupazione iniziano a ritenerla immanente in un futuro non lontano. Una componente del capitalismo israeliano, colpita dal boicottaggio e timorosa che possa andare sempre peggio ha iniziato a spingere per una accelerazione della fine dell'occupazione. Un centinaio di capitalisti israeliani si sono recati alla conferenza di Davos dove si sono ufficialmente costituti in organizzazione. Sul campo, sembra che le forze di stato israeliane stiano aumentando la repressione sulle lotte in corso così come stanno forzando gli sgomberi di interi villaggi da territori considerati strategici. Bil'in celebrerà il nono anniversario della sua lotta. [English] read full story / add a comment

Two weeks ago, Nosotros los Pobres had the good fortune to host a presentation by two members of the Federacion de Estudiantes Libertarias of Chile, with whom we had a very productive exchange of ideas. Soon after that, I saw a statement published by the FEL, commenting on the situation in Venezuela, in which they expressed sympathy for the “Venezuelan people” in their resistance against a coup d’etat. As a member of Nosotros los Pobres, I wanted to share some thoughts about Venezuela and what’s going on there, both now and for the last 15 years, and I hope they will be useful for especifista comrades as well as for concerned and informed people generally. read full story / add a comment

mashriq / arabia / iraq / community struggles / news report Tuesday February 25, 2014 03:12 byIlan S.
The Israeli media is nearly obsessed with the escalation of the B.D.S. as if they know things they do not disclose. Both supporters and rejectors of the end of the occupation start to regard it as immanent and not in the far future. A section of the Israeli capitalist elite which is suffering from the boycott and fear its escalation start to organize to accelerate the end of occupation. 100 of them traveled for the Davos conference and official organization was established. On the ground, it seems that the efforts of the Israeli state forces escalate their repression of on going struggles and make more efforts to transfer villagers from strategic locations. Bil'in will celebrate the ninth anniversary of the ongoing struggle on the 28th of February. [Italiano] 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."

Ναι, χρειαζόμαστε έναν αγώνα! Χρειάζεται να ανατρέψουμε την κυβέρνηση. Αλλά δεν χρειάζεται να βάλουμε στη θέση της μια νέα! Ναι, αυτο-οργάνωση, αλλά στο όνομα της αυτοδιεύθυνσης! Και όχι να παραδοθούμε σε νέους ολιγάρχες, ακόμη και αν μιλούν σωστά ουκρανικά. Δεν χρειαζόμαστε ένα δεξιό Μαϊντάν, ένα Μαϊντάν χειραγωγημένο από τους πολιτικούς και τις οργανώσεις, αλλά μια νέα Μαχνοβτσίνα. read full story / add a comment

For weeks and weeks, we have been looking at Ukrainian events, trying to make sense of what has been happening in Kyiv and other cities. We had read many texts, comments and interviews and discussed about Maidan, but we had been always arriving only at new questions to be answered. Thus, when a possibility occurred to get in touch with Ukrainian comrades one of us tried to use it as best as he could. As a result of that effort and thanks to kindness and patience of Denis from a Kyiv branch of a revolutionary syndicalist group called Autonomous Workers Union the following interview came into existence. Hopefully, it will provide you with many useful insights into the Maidan movement and its context. read full story / add a comment

The Korean anarchist movement wanted to build an independent self-governing anarchist society, a cooperative system of the masses of the Korean people. They wanted to take civilisation from the capitalist class, and return it to the popular classes. By doing so, the capitalist and colonial society that existed in Korea (as elsewhere in Africa and Asia and east Europe) would be replaced with a new society. This new society would be based on the principles of freedom and equality, that guarantee the independent self-rule of the producing classes: the working class and the peasantry.
