We are in the middle of a political earthquake in the Arab world and the ground has still not stopped shaking. To make predictions when events are so fluid is risky, but there is no doubt that the uprising in Egypt -- however it ends -- will have a dramatic impact across the region and within Palestine. ... read full story / add a comment

Colombia, Medellin
Han pasado siete meses desde el último incendio que consumió las casas de 176 familias en el barrio Altos de la Virgen, ubicado en las laderas de la Comuna 13 de Medellín, y aún no hay soluciones concertadas y definitivas para detener la trashumancia de quienes abandonaron sus casas en cenizas con las esperanzas puestas en los subsidios de vivienda que la Administración Municipal les prometió. Peor aún, basados en el argumento de que se encuentran ubicados en una zona de alto riesgo, la Alcaldía de Medellín pretende desalojar a otras 68 familias y reubicarlas en el sector de Pajarito, pese a los problemas de seguridad que ello le acarrearía a los nuevos habitantes.

Durante más de una década Altos de la Virgen ha sido el resguardo de 726 familias desplazadas por el conflicto social y armado que se ha vivido con crudeza en los municipios de San Carlos, Granada y San Luis. Su historia está atravesada por varios desalojos y dos incendios. ... read full story / add a comment

At the moment it is abundantly easy to sense everywhere in the Arab World elation at what appears to be one of greatest events in modern Arab history. A genuine popular revolution, spontaneous and apparently leaderless, yet sustained and remarkably determined, overthrew a system that by all accounts had been the most entrenched and secure in the whole region. The wider implications beyond Tunisia are hard to miss. Just as in the case of the Iranian revolution more than three decades ago, what is now happening in Tunisia is watched by all in the Arab world--as either a likely model of the transformation to come in their respective countries, or at least as a badly needed source of revolutionary inspiration. ... read full story / add a comment

The Abahlali baseMjondolo describe their politics as “a homemade politics that everyone can understand and find a home in”. They believe in politics that are shaped not by an outlined external ideology, but by the current and relevant experiences of its people. Politics derived from any singular prescribed theory, they argue, creates elitism and patronage. By building their political aims and beliefs directly and internally, they are more successful in addressing the realistic needs of its participants. It is very much a politics of the here and now. They have called for “a living communism” and are adamantly anti-capitalism, particularly in their beliefs that private land should be made public for housing. ... read full story / add a comment

Questa lettera si inserisce all'interno della campagna BDS, per il boicottaggio, disinvestimento e sanzioni nei confronti di Israele fino a che non garantirà il diritto al ritorno dei palestinesi alle loro abitazioni, la fine dell'occupazione militare e la fine della discriminazione dei palestinesi. La campagna nasce nel 2005 da un appello sottoscritto dalle principali 156 organizzazioni della società civile palestinese. Maggiori info qui: http://www.boicottaisraele.it/files/index.php
All'interno di questa chiamata nasce il PACBI, Palestinian campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, ed il PSCABI, Palestinian Students' Campaign for the Academic Boycott of Israel, ed è proprio da quest'ultimo gruppo di studenti che arriva la lettera.

La cosa importante è che LE PROSSIME SETTIMANE CI SARANNO ASSEMBLEE NELLE PRINCIPALI UNIVRSITÀ DI GAZA (la prima è stata l'altroieri) il cui scopo sarà quello di mettere in contatto studenti di Gaza con studenti fuori di Gaza. L'ideale sarebbe riuscire a fare dei COLLEGAMENTI (skype o simili) TRA LE UNIVERSITÀ GAZAWE E QUELLE ITALIANE. L'avvenimento è molto importante sia perchè gli studenti gazawi possono in questo modo sentire concretamente la solidarietà internazionale che perchè darebbe un punto di riferimento concreto nella striscia al boicottaggio accademico in Italia.

Sarebbe interessante, inoltre, fare un “database” con l'elenco dei rapporti tra le università italiane e quelle israeliane, prendendo i dati dalle diverse università. ... read full story / add a comment

We met with Antenea Jimenez, a former militant with the student movement who is now working with a national network of activists who are trying to build and strengthen the comunas. The comunas are community organizations promoted since 2006 by the Chávez government as a way to consolidate a new form of state based upon production at the local level. She told us about the important advances in the process, as well as the significant challenges that remain in the struggle to build a new form of popular power from below. ... read full story / add a comment

Jacob Zuma visited Balfour about two weeks ago, for the second time, where there were some of the most militant service delivery protest last year in July 2009 and even this year. The first time when he was in Balfour, he said he was there to investigate for himself what is happening. This time around, when he was there he said he is there also to investigate. So, for how long will Jacob Zuma be investigating rather than taking an action? It makes me wonder whether he was not trying to cool the people of Balfour and others that he visited so that service delivery protests don’t erupt. ... read full story / add a comment

Last week Jacob Zuma visited the Sweetwaters shack settlement near Orange Farm in Johannesburg. He informed the nation that his shock at seeing human beings living like pigs had almost reduced him to tears. He also visited the Siyathemba settlement in Balfour where he, like a typical bullying ward councillor, berated angry residents for asking the questions that mattered. ... read full story / add a comment
