A la luz de la convocación de un “Congreso de refundación de la A.I.T.” propuesta por la C.N.T.-E., la F.A.U.-Alemania y la U.S.I.-Prato Carnico (hizo la escisión de la U.S.I.), nos hemos sentidos obligados a expresar algunas consideraciones sobre eso y de volver a proponer nuestro testimonio en el 20° Congreso de la A.I.T. de diciembre 1996 en Madrid.
Las razones por las que expresamos y volvemos a proponer este testimonio se relacionan a las consideraciones hechas con las cuales las tres siglas sindicales proponen este congreso. ... read full story / add a comment

In the light of the convocation of a “congress to refound the I.W.A.” made by the C.N.T.-E., by F.A.U.-Germany and by U.S.I.-Prato Carnico (secessionist), we decided to make some considerations about it along with reproposing our testimony from the 20th I.W.A. Congress of Madrid from December 1996.
The reasons we express ourselves and repropose this documents are closely linked to the motivations with which the three unions propose this congress. ... read full story / add a comment

Alla luce della convocazione di un “congresso di rifondazione della A.I.T.” proposta dalla C.N.T.-E, dalla F.A.U.-Germania e dell'U.S.I.-Prato Carnico-Italia (scissionista), ci siamo sentiti in dovere di esprimere alcune considerazioni in merito e di riproporre la nostra testimonianza risalente al 20° Congresso dell'A.I.T. tenutosi a Madrid nel Dicembre 1996.
Le ragioni per cui ci esprimiamo e riproponiamo questo documento si riallacciano alle motivazioni con le quali le tre sigle sindacali propongono questo congresso. ... read full story / add a comment

The elephant in the room is now visible to everyone. All the developments of the past years, from the extreme violence and cynicism of the “memoranda of understanding” imposed upon Greece to the decision of the British referendum in favour of Brexit, point to the same direction: the deep crisis of European Integration. It was supposed to be the most advanced example of economic and political integration and the first successful introduction of a single currency in such a broad area. It presented itself as a paragon of stability and human rights. Yet the reality is very different. ... read full story / add a comment

7 October 2016 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan. Many Western leaders claimed the invasion, dubbed Operation Enduring Freedom, was a humanitarian intervention to liberate Afghans and especially Afghan women and girls from the brutal Taliban regime. However, the evidence demonstrates the results have been anything but humane or liberating.
The people truly liberated by the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan are the wealthy investors in the military-industrial complex and those betting on successfully extracting Afghan resources and developing the infrastructure of the New Silk Road. ... read full story / add a comment

Since India embraced what trade unions call the LPG route to growth (that is liberalization, privatization and globalization) in 1991, the country has seen 16 general strikes. And the 17th all India workers’ strike falls on September 2nd. The last general strike, observed on 2 September 2015, saw participation from nearly 150 million workers – that's half the population of the entire U.S., or more than the combined population of the UK, Canada and Australia. This year, the unions expect a better turnout given the controversial labour policies pursued by the Narendra Modi-led NDA government. ... read full story / add a comment

Turkey's incursion into northern Syria on 24 August was flagged up as a move to drive the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) out of the border town of Jarabulus. But that is just a cover: Turkey's not very secret major objective is to crush the 50,000-strong Kurdish YPG (People's Protection Unit) militia, and overrun the three autonomous Kurdish dominated areas, collectively called “Rojava” by the Kurds. ... read full story / add a comment

Marx e l'omofobia
È da poco trascorso (sotto silenzio) un anniversario storico estremamente importante: il 21 febbraio 1848 venne pubblicata a Londra la prima edizione del "Manifesto del Partito Comunista" di Karl Marx e Friedrich Engels.
Attuale più che mai. Oggi, in molti invocano il ritorno della Vecchia Talpa: "E quando la rivoluzione avrà condotto a termine questa seconda metà del suo lavoro preparatorio, l’Europa balzerà dal suo seggio e griderà: ben scavato, vecchia talpa!". Colgo l'occasione per avanzare alcune riflessioni personali... ... read full story / add a comment

Nunca como ahora tuvo tanta pertinencia aquella desafortunada invención de nuestro vicepresidente. Pues si el supuesto empate tiene sabor a derrota, entonces la figura del “empate técnico” es sólo un amargo consuelo (pretendiendo hacer de la derrota empate, lo técnico resulta una mera alquimia que sueña convertir plomo en oro). Nunca la retórica del empate se hace tan amarga como cuando se pretende disfrazar una derrota que confirma la no correspondencia entre la realidad y su interpretación. En ese sentido, lo técnico encubre una catástrofe: el gigante de bronce se descubre con pies de barro. Marx decía que la historia se repite dos veces, una como tragedia y otra como comedia. Lo que no dijo es que la comedia no es tal para el que la sufre; la tragedia continúa y hasta con más saña (por eso la historia está para aprenderla, no sólo para citarla). ... read full story / add a comment

Reza Aslan's Zealot (2013) presents the ways in which the life of Jesus of Nazareth was “revised” ex post facto by the Gospel-writers or evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and how it was that Rome's suppression of the Jewish Revolt of 66 C.E. catalyzed the very writing of the Gospels (70-120 C.E.) and the propagation throughout the Greco-Roman Diaspora of the revisionist views of Saul (Paul) of Tarsus, which stressed the divinity of Jesus while attempting to reconcile or downplay the prophet's political revolutionism, directed against Rome and the Jewish ruling class, as summarized in the Kingdom of God he proclaimed. Aslan provides many historical correctives both to the presentation of the Gospels and the dogma institutionalized by the various Christian churches, yet his own account of Jesus as Zealot would likely be improved by engagement with Christian anarchist thinkers such as Leo Tolstoy. ... read full story / add a comment

This article is based on some of the research that I have conducted over the past two years on women’s activism in Egypt, Lebanon, and Jordan, from independence until the Arab uprisings. I collected over one hundred personal narratives from middle class women activists of different generations. This research was initially framed in terms of what is perceived to be a ‘gender paradox’: despite over a century of women’s activism, why do women in Arab countries continue to face some of the largest gender inequalities in the world? ... read full story / add a comment
The just-released Oxfam Davos report An Economy For the 1% which the mass media have ignored arrestingly shows that 62 individuals (388 in 2010) now own more wealth than 50 per cent of the world's population. More shockingly, it reports from its uncontested public sources that this share of wealth by half of the world's people has collapsed by over 40 per cent in just the last five years. ... read full story / add a comment
