On Friday 17th April, the legal team in the years-long Phiri water case filed an application for leave to appeal to the Constitutional Court. The application is to appeal the judgment handed down on 25th March 2009, by the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein. The SCA judgment was the result of an appeal by the City of Johannesburg/ Johannesburg Water (the ‘City’) and the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) of the previous ruling of the Johannesburg High Court in April 2008, which declared that prepaid water meters were both illegal and unconstitutional and ordered the City to provide residents with 50 litres of free water per day. ... read full story / add a comment

Las organizaciones populares y movimientos sociales centroamericanos reunidos en Tegucigalpa, Honduras continuamos expresando nuestra oposición al libre comercio, en el marco de la VII Ronda de Negociación del Acuerdo de Asociación entre la Unión Europea y Centroamérica (AdA). Vemos como la crisis global tiene un impacto directo que sigue profundizando las condiciones de pobreza, exclusión, discriminación y marginación de nuestros pueblos, que se ha venido agravando con la entrada en vigencia del TLC con Estados Unidos y que nos ha hecho más dependientes de la economía de ese país, lo que provoca una mayor vulnerabilidad económica y pérdida de soberanía como pueblos y como región centroamericana.

After a community meeting that was held yesterday, 19th March, by the residents of Sebokeng Zone 20 called by the Radical Youth Network (RYN), the police again arrested a community member Malefafane “Search” Letsele. He was arrested for an incident that happened on the 17th March 2009, when members of the community visited the house of the Community Police Forum (CPF) patrol officer, Thulani Bam, who arrested was arrested (and given free bail) for the murder of a community member Teboho Tsotetsi. They wanted to burn his house down but the RYN intervened and managed to calm the situation.

On Friday, the Kliptown 5 were sentenced in the Protea Magistrates Court following their previous conviction on charges of “public violence”. Handing down very harsh sentences, the magistrate made her intent very clear: the defendants must be deterred from participating in any future protest action. Four of the five – comrades Charlie, Sibongile, Ricardo and Oscar – were sentenced to 2 years in prison, or a R3000 fine each, both suspended for 5 years. The fifth defendant, comrade Thabo, was sentenced to 2 years in prison suspended for 3 years or a R3000 fine (payable immediately). ... read full story / add a comment

Helen Zille and the City of Cape Town need to stop trying to score cheap political/elections propaganda points and be honest with the people of Cape Town (see press statement of City of Cape Town below). The so-called ‘water management devices’ are simply pre-paid meters in drag. Like the pre-paid meters which have been declared unconstitutional and illegal by the Johannesburg High Court, these devices dispense the 6000 ‘free’ litres per month/per household and then automatically cut off. ... read full story / add a comment

On the 03rd September 2007 more than twenty comrades were arrested in community protests organized by the Anti Privatisation Forum against the slow or non-delivery of services in Soweto (Kliptown and Protea South). Fourteen comrades were arrested in Protea South though only four of those charged were taken to the Protea Magistrate’s court on the 4th of September 2007 and the others were released after being held captive for more than 24 hours without any charges being laid. In Kliptown, twelve comrades were arrested for public violence including five juveniles (underage, school-going children) and have been appearing in court since September 2007. After more than twenty appearances and almost two years, five were found guilty of public violence yet the community was arrested for demanding housing. ... read full story / add a comment

Last week the ANC-run Emfuleni Municipality, together with its water utility - Metsi A Lekoa - called a community mass meeting at Kwa Masiza hostel in Sebokeng. Residents came in their droves thinking that an announcement would finally be made about kick-starting the municipality’s long awaited water provision project for the hostel. Instead, local ANC councillor M. Maqutyana and municipal official responsible for water and sanitation, Jonny Thabane told residents that even those residents who are accessing municipally-supplied piped water must “conserve’ that water and not use more than 25 litres of water per person/per day. When residents protested, they told them to vote for the ANC again (for a fourth time) if they wanted to have long-term and sustainable access to water. ... read full story / add a comment

In its historic judgement handed down on the 30th April 2008, the Johannesburg High Court declared prepaid water meters both illegal and unconstitutional and ordered the City of Johannesburg (CoJ) to provide residents with 50 litres of free water per person/per day . Despite the judgement being celebrated by poor communities across South Africa and supported by a wide range of domestic and international unions, political parties and non-governmental organisations, Johannesburg Mayor, Amos Masondo – alongside Johannesburg Water and the Department of Water Affairs & Forestry (DWAF) – appealed the judgement. More recently, the National Treasury has applied to be an amicus in support of the appeal. And so, now into its sixth year, this landmark case to secure basic constitutional rights to water for all, heads to the SCA. ... read full story / add a comment

Old skeletons are trembling in their closets as the traditional weapons of South African political play are sharpened at this time of elections. The split in the ruling party has done little to pacify the grudge match between the IFP and the ANC in Nongoma in KwaZulu-Natal. Instead, Cope's emergence has opened another front for beatings and intimidation between the sparring partners. Cope members in East London have been left to wonder "if the ANC is declaring war on us." And amongst the APF's own affiliates, the office of the Kliptown Concerned Residents was broken into. Electioneering material for the organisation's 28 January by-election campaign in the ward were removed by unknown 'comrade tsotsis.' ... read full story / add a comment

On November 2008, the Emfuleni Mayor, Mr. Mushutudu addressed angry residents of Kwamasiza who have been without water and sanitation for the past seven years. The mayor, like many others promised that first thing as soon as his office opens, there will be different contractors working in the area and that Kwa-masiza hostel will be his priority this year. When he was told by members of the CAWP that this is just one of those false promises, he guaranteed residents that they will see change this year.

Come era facilmente prevedibile le rassicurazioni diffuse e propagandate a piene mani da politici, affaristi, finanzieri e confindustriali sulla possibilità di riprendersi da quella che veniva chiamata crisi si sono dimostrate una colossale bugia. Con una ingombrante operazione di depistaggio mediatico all'insegna di "dobbiamo abbattere il debito pubblico" o "dobbiamo abbattere le Tasse", "l'Europa ce lo chiede", "dobbiamo rispettare i vincoli del deficit imposto", si è proceduto alla cancellazione quasi totale dei diritti dei lavoratori.

Da alcuni anni il movimento curdo sta vivendo un processo che si muove in direzione libertaria. Sebbene non si tratti di un movimento anarchico, questo processo indica che le idee anarchiche di libertà ed uguaglianza attraverso la solidarietà, attraverso la nostra idea di orizzontalità e di democrazia diretta e radicale ed attraverso la nostra critica radicale contro lo Stato non solo sono forti e valide, ma sono anche necessarie per i movimenti che vogliano operare una rottura con l'eredità autoritaria all'interno della sinistra. E' nostro dovere esprimere la nostra solidarietà con la Rojava e con il movimento curdo, poiché essi rappresentano una speranza in questa regione e perché si ergono come oppressi in lotta contro i loro oppressori. Le lotte reali non sono mai perfette ma portano con sé diversi gradi di potenzialità di realizzazione di una libera società. Nell'esprimere la nostra solidarietà al movimento rivoluzionario nella Rojava ribadiamo che il nostro ruolo è quello di continuare a sviluppare i principi fondamentali delle nostre idee allo scopo di ispirare le rivoluzioni ed i/le rivoluzionar* di tutto il mondo. - Gruppo Editoriale di Anarkismo.net [English]

For some years now the Kurdish movement has been moving in the direction of libertarian ideas. While not an anarchist movement, this move is a sign that anarchist ideas of freedom and equality through solidarity, our ideas of horizontality and radical direct democracy and our radical critique against the State are not only valid and strong, but are also necessary for movements in order to break away from the authoritarian legacy within the left. It is our duty to express our solidarity with Rojava and the Kurdish movement, because they represent hope in this region and because they are the oppressed fighting the oppressors. Real struggles are never perfect but they carry diverse degrees of potential to being about a free society. Expressing our solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Rojava means we understand our role is to continue developing the core tenets of our ideas in order to inspire revolutions and revolutionaries all over the world. - Anarkismo.net Editorial Group [Italiano] [Ελληνικά] [Castellano]

Εδώ και ένα μήνα, στην πόλη Κομπανί, κοντά στα σύνορα της Συρίας με την Τουρκία, κουρδικές ένοπλες αντάρτικες ομάδες δίνουν έναν αγώνα ενάντια στους φονταμενταλιστές και επεκτατιστές του ISIS. Η επίθεση ξεκίνησε στις 15/9 όταν χιλιάδες μαχητές του ISIS, υποστηριζόμενοι από δεκάδες άρματα μάχης και βαρύ πυροβολικό επιτέθηκαν στην πόλη σε τρία μέτωπα. Μέχρι αυτή την στιγμή, 2000 κούρδοι πολιτοφύλακες δίνουν ηρωικές μάχες ενάντια στους 10000 μαχητές του ισλαμικού κράτους και έχουν καταφέρει να ανακτήσουν εδάφη μέσα και έξω από την πόλη. Οι απώλειες για τον εχθρό είναι μεγάλες τόσο σε έμψυχο δυναμικό αλλά και όσον αφορά βαρύ οπλισμό και οχήματα που πέφτουν στα χέρια των ανταρτών.

La segunda vuelta de las elecciones brasileras tiene relación directa con: la proyección del país, la alianza estratégica del bloque político del Mercado Común del Sur (MERCOSUR) y el alineamiento del Brasil dentro de la globalización corporativa: La política exterior de Lula extendida por Dilma (con algunas correcciones en su pragmatismo) es estructuralmente distinta de la del período de Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Se cambiaron el eje y el enfoque. A escala mundial nuestro país refuerza las relaciones Sur-Sur, priorizando específicamente las inversiones en infraestructura y cadenas productivas de América Latina y África. Brasil es hoy un motor del capitalismo mundial. Quien gane en las urnas comandará la 7ª economía mundal.

In the October Revolution of 1917, the Bolshevik Party, together with other revolutionaries, overthrew the Provisional Government established in February and – together, initially, with left Social Revolutionaries – seized power. How did the Bolsheviks – a minority just eight months earlier, when the February Revolution overthrew the Tsar and established the Provisional Government – come to power so quickly? How did this small force emerge from relative obscurity to win large sections of the working class to its programme and take power? Herein lies the root and essence of United Front policy in a traditional Marxist sense. First published in issue 88 of Workers World News Part 1: NUMSA and the ‘United Front Against Neoliberalism’
