Ireland is to have a referendum after all on the EU austerity treaty and a lot of the left is getting unreasonably excited about this. I say unreasonably because my opinion is that the referendum will not really, as the likes of the ULA claim, be a meaningful ballot on austerity. Austerity is not something simply being imposed on us by Europe through this referendum but something our domestic ruling class are already imposing and have been for a few years. Of course they have used the ECB/IMF as the 'bad cop' to scare us with and when passed will use the EU austerity treaty in the same way. But we need to recognize and organize around the fact that our local politicians and capitalist class are not really a 'good cop' eager to help us avoid the attentions of the 'bad cop' making threatening gestures at us across the room. ... read full story / add a comment

Once again much media fanfare has broken out in aftermath of the South African state’s budget speech. The budget, however, is yet more proof of the ANC’s ruling class agenda: free markets, budget cuts for the poor and subsidies for the rich. From the budget and other utterances it is clear the ANC has, despite media hysteria, no interest in nationalisation. The state will, therefore, try and deal with the global economic crisis largely through business-as-usual.

Στις 12 Φλεβάρη του 2012 στην Αθήνα ζήσαμε τη μικρογραφία και ένα ακόμη επεισόδιο μιας εξέγερσης, ενός κοινωνικού πολέμου, που στην Ελλάδα βρίσκεται σε πλήρη εξέλιξη εδώ και χρόνια, αλλά οι συγκυρίες της περιόδου που ζούμε τον έκαναν να εκδηλωθεί και να αναζωπυρωθεί. Μετά το Δεκέμβρη του 2008- και ίσως τον περασμένο Μάη/Ιούνη- αυτή τη φορά μία και μοναδική νύχτα έφτασε για να κάνει τα σαθρά και παραφουσκωμένα θεμέλια του καθεστώτος να τρίζουν. ... read full story / add a comment
