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

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

imageSiria: quale destino per i Curdi nei negoziati di Ginevra? Feb 10 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

La settimana scorsa si doveva tenere a Ginevra una riunione nel quadro dei colloqui indiretti tra il governo siriano e le varie fazioni dell’esercito di “opposizione” raggruppate sotto il nome di Alto Comitato per i negoziati. L’inviato speciale delle Nazioni Unite per la crisi siriana, Staffan de Mistura, ha deciso di rinviare l’incontro al 25 febbraio. Curiosamente, il partito curdo PYD, che è, tra l’altro, un attore politico chiave nel futuro della Siria e l’unica forza che ha combattuto lo Stato islamico sul terreno, è stato escluso dalla riunione. È paradossale che esso venga boicottato come membro della riunione, mentre i media occidentali spesso presentato i kurdi come “amici” dell’Occidente, facendo attenzione a non parlare degli obiettivi politici di questo movimento ed a limitare la loro simpatia ad immagini semi-erotizzate di giovani donne armati di fucili.

Este mensaje se dijo con pedagogía y con fuerza, con argumentos y con determinación.

Na semana passada estava prevista uma reunião em Genebra, no marco das negociações indiretas entre o governo sírio e as facções da 'oposição' armada reunidas no grupo divulgado pelo nome tonitruante de Alto Comitê para as Negociações. O enviado da ONU para a crise síria, Staffan de Mistura, decidiu adiar a reunião para o dia 25 de fevereiro. Curiosamente porém, foi excluído daquela reunião o partido dos curdos, o PYD, o qual, dentre outras coisas, é ator político importantíssimo no futuro da Síria e a única força que combateu em solo contra o 'Estado Islâmico'. É paradoxal que se boicote a participação do PYD, quando a mídia-empresa ocidental tão frequentemente vendeu a imagem dos curdos como os "amigos" do ocidente, cuidando atentamente de esconder os reais objetivos políticos desse movimento, e limitando sua simpatia a uma imagem semierotizada de mulheres jovens armadas com fuzis.

Il devait se tenir la semaine dernière à Genève une réunion dans le cadre des négociations indirectes entre le gouvernement syrien et les diverses factions de l' « opposition »armée regroupées sous le nom ronflant de Haut Comité des négociations. L'envoyé spécial de l'ONU pour la crise syrienne, Staffan de Mistura, a décidé de reporter la réunion au 25 février. Curieusement, le parti kurde PYD, qui est, entre autres, un acteur politique essentiel de l'avenir de la Syrie et la seule force qui ait combattu l’État Islamique sur le terrain, a été exclu de cette réunion. Il est paradoxal qu'il soit boycotté dans le cadre de cette réunion, alors que les médias occidentaux nous ont souvent présenté les Kurdes comme des « amis » de l'Occident, tout en prenant bien soin de ne pas trop parler des objectifs politiques de ce mouvement et en limitant leur sympathie à un image semi-érotisée de jeunes femmes armées de fusils.

Σήμερα που ο καπιταλισμός αποκτά όλο και πιο ολοκληρωτικά χαρακτηριστικά, που κράτος και κεφάλαιο αμφότερα γιγαντωμένα επιτίθενται και καταστρέφουν τις ελάχιστες κατακτήσεις των καταπιεσμένων και οδηγούν ολόκληρους πληθυσμούς στην κυριολεκτική τους εκμηδένιση είναι εύλογο, ίσως, το ερώτημα αν τα ανταγωνιστικά κινήματα έχουν την πολυτέλεια να μένουν αγκυλωμένα στις ιστορικές τους διαφορές ή αν θα πρέπει –έστω και υπό το βάρος των συνθηκών έκτακτης ανάγκης που αντιμετωπίζουμε– να ενώσουν τις δυνάμεις τους σε μία αντικαπιταλιστική προοπτική.
