In 1961 Frantz Fanon wrote, from Tunisia, “The colonial world is a world cut into two....The town belonging to the colonized people, or at least the native town, the Negro village, the medina, the reservation, is a place of ill fame, peopled by men of evil repute. They are born there, it matters little where or how; they die there, it matters not how or where.” Fifty years later cities are still divided into separate zones for those who count and those who don't count. ... 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

Em setembro de 2009, no entanto, alguns líderes foram atacados no assentamento Kennedy Road por um grupo armado que entoava lemas étnicos. A polícia se negou a ajudar o AbM e somente estava presente para desarmar a resistência espontânea à multidão. Pessoas morreram durante a tentativa de defesa contra o grupo e as casas de mais de trinta líderes da AbM foram destruídas e saqueadas depois que os dirigentes locais do partido que está no poder tomaram o controle do assentamento. Os dirigentes partidários, tanto na cidade como na província, atacaram o movimento com uma linguagem extremamente forte nos dias posteriores ao ataque, condenado-o por sua exigência perante o governo para que o mesmo declarasse inconstitucional a Lei de Assentamentos Precários e acusando-o de se opor ao desenvolvimento. Afirmou-se aos oficiais da polícia e do estado, bem como aos repórteres, que as ONGs estrangeiras financiavam o movimento com o objetivo de deter o desenvolvimento para que, deste modo, os africanos continuassem pobres e mantivessem seu acesso ao financiamento.

Sin embargo, en septiembre de 2009, algunos líderes fueron atacados en el asentamiento Kennedy Road por una turba armada que coreaba lemas étnicos. La policía se negó a ayudar al AbM y solo se hizo presente para desarmar la resistencia espontánea a la turba. Gente murió durante el intento de montar una defensa contra la muchedumbre, y las casas de más de treinta líderes del AbM fueron destruidas y saqueadas después de que los dirigentes locales del partido en el poder tomaran control del asentamiento. Los dirigentes partidistas, tanto en la ciudad como en la provincia, atacaron al movimiento en un lenguaje extremadamente fuerte en los días posteriores al ataque, condenándolo por haber exigido al gobierno que declarase la Ley de Asentamientos Precarios inconstitucional y acusando al movimiento de oponerse al desarrollo. Se les dijo a oficiales de la policía y del estado así como a periodistas que las ONG extranjeras estaban financiando al movimiento con el fin de detener el desarrollo, para que, de esa manera, los africanos continuaran siendo pobres y mantuvieran su acceso al financiamiento.

Une réflexion sur les luttes universitaires en Afrique et dans le Nord
Le jeudi de la semaine dernière, le South African Students’ Congress (SASCO) a tenté de fermer 9 campus universitaires pour ajouter du punch à leur revendication pour la gratuité scolaire. Ils ont le plus failli réussir à l’Université de Johannesburg avant que la police les chassent d’une barricade en feu avec des cannons à eau.
Ce genre d’actions contre la marchandisation de l’éducation universitaire ont émergé et fleuri depuis les premiers jours dans notre démocratie. Et ils ont été une partie régulière de notre vie universitaire à travers l’Afrique depuis que la Banque Mondiale a décidé, dans le milieu des années 1980, que les universités été un luxe inaccessible pour l’Afrique.

On Thursday, Jacob Zuma promised us a government that will work "faster, harder and smarter." It sounded a little like the old Standard Bank slogan, "Simpler. Better. Faster." The ANC's 2009 election slogan was "Working Together We Can Do More," which was just a word away from the British cell phone company's advertising campaign, launched the year before, that declared "Together we can do more." But the slogan was good for a smile when activists in Jo'burg took the opportunity to grab cans of spray-paint and stencils and conclude it with words like 'corruption' and 'evictions' when it appeared on election posters. ... read full story / add a comment

For as long as Eskom continues to see public utilities as an opportunity for private profit, and electricity as a commodity for private consumption rather than a common good, civil society should invoke the tradition of civil disobedience and support communities and popular movements to resist state repression while they organise to appropriate electricity on a non-commodified, safe and carefully disciplined basis. ... read full story / add a comment

The devastation of Haiti is not a simple matter of bad luck. Earthquakes, like storms and epidemics, hit the poor with vastly more force than the rich. Much of the press coverage of the catastrophe in Haiti has wilfully disregarded the history of how Haiti was made poor and kept poor by, above all, the same American elites that are now dispensing charity, soldiers and advice. Racism has often been close to the surface or even grinning hideously far above it. ... read full story / add a comment

On Saturday night members of the Kennedy Road Development Committee were subject to a surprise attack by a group of about 40 armed men chanting anti Mpondo slogans. The police failed to intervene. People were killed. Later on that night all key AbM leaders were subject to attack. Everyone's houses (and businesses in two cases where people had shops) were destroyed. This mob (now known as 'the Zulu mob' in the settlement) has direct connections to the local ANC who had promised, two weeks ago, to turn the AbM office into an ANC office. ... read full story / add a comment
southern africa / community struggles / other libertarian press Friday August 14, 2009 - 21:25 by Richard Pithouse
In recent weeks people have been willing to risk arrest, violence and in some cases death at the hands of our habitually brutal police force to assert a whole range of demands. These demands have included an insistence on the right to the cities, the right to an income, the right to a decent education and the right to a living wage.

The issuing of these demands has often, in direct contrast to the legalism of much of civil society, taken the practical form of the assertion of rights via direct and immediate appropriation, such as land occupations, rather than a request for an abstract recognition of rights in principle. ... read full story / add a comment

La lotta popolare non-armata delle comunità palestinesi, a cui aderiscono gli Anarchici Contro il Muro ed altri, non è una lotta di "liberazione nazionale" o di "autodeterminazione" della nazione palestinese. E' invece la lotta del popolo palestinese, la cui stragrande maggioranza è composta di lavoratori, contro la minaccia di sgomberi e contro lo sfruttamento imposto dal progetto coloniale sionista di Israele. Nessuno di coloro i quali partecipano alle lotte e che non stanno dentro l'elite palestinese nutre illusioni sull'elite palestinese e sullo Stato che governeranno e gestiranno dopo la fine dell'occupazione.

imageWorking Class Livelihoods: Struggle against Each Other, or Revolt against the System? Nov 27 by Bongani Maponyane 0 comments

Rising inflation means increases in food and petrol prices. Inflation is a global problem, driven partly by conglomerates maximising their profits at the expense of ordinary people. The state plays its role, continually raising prices for services.

The pressure of capitalism has impacted on our lives. It has caused clashes within the working classes, resulting in discrimination and prejudice. Ruling class elites – the political and economic elite – benefit from these struggles between people who compete for scraps from their tables.

Bruno Lima Rocha, de 23 a 29 de novembro de 2014

Introdução

Estamos diante de um novo fenômeno. O 3º turno no Brasil era na composição de maioria, na busca desenfreada pela tal da governabilidade, dando carne ao conceito de presidencialismo de coalizão. Tal conceito-chave na política brasileira - se for observado sem senso crítico - entra nas falácias neoinstitucionalistas. Se for traduzido pela sua natureza substantiva, revela-se a condição de governo de quem faz campanha ao lado de 10 partidos, embora esconda as legendas oligárquicas nos programas de TV e Rádio. Agora o 3º turno ultrapassa as raias do absurdo e trata do seqüestro da pauta por direita, havendo uma corrida de cancha reta entre o Planalto (ou Dilma e Lula, mais apropriadamente dito) e a oposição neoliberal, apostando o páreo para ver quem alinha de forma mais convicta com o receituário da “retomada de confiança do mercado”. Nesta corrida infeliz, cumpre papéis preponderantes tanto a pressão midiática – como veremos no tópico logo abaixo – como a execução da teoria das portas giratórias, onde o pivô é um alto executivo de finanças que entra e sai do aparelho de Estado como se este fosse o prolongamento de suas atividades privadas. As palavras que seguem não são propaganda ideológica embora não percam sentido de crenças e normatividade. Reforço que não são propícias para quem vive em estado de pensamento mágico, confundindo o apelo publicitário do marketing político com a política nua e crua, embora com requintes de sofisticação, realizada por e pelo andar de cima do Brasil.

Ce texte est une réponse à l’article « Rojava : une perspective anarcho-syndicaliste » écrit par « K.B. » et qui a été récemment publié sur le site web « Ideas and Action » de la Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA, Alliance de Solidarité des Travailleurs) basée en Amérique du Nord. Dans l’article il y a une attaque contre la révolution du Rojava (le Kurdistan syrien) au Moyen-Orient, un évènement dans lequel le Parti des Travailleurs du Kurdistan (PKK en Kurde) a joué un rôle clé. Cette réponse n’est pas publiée de mauvaise foi ou avec de mauvaises intentions envers la personne qui a écrit l’article ou envers son organisation mais, bien plutôt, afin de clarifier et de partager notre pensée concernant la question du soutien anarchiste à la fois aux mouvements de libération nationale et à ce qui, pour nous, est une lutte très importante et inspirante qui se déroule au Moyen-Orient. L’objectif est d’avoir un débat franc et amical qui nous emmène tous et toutes de l’avant. [English]
