brazil/guyana/suriname/fguiana / miscellaneous / non-anarchist press Sunday October 28, 2018 - 04:06 by Alfredo Saad-Filho
Brazil will elect its new President on 28 October 2018. Since the judicial-parliamentary coup that removed elected President Dilma Rousseff, of the Workers’ Party (PT), the new administration (led by her former Vice-President, Michel Temer) has advanced its agenda of neoliberal ‘reforms’. The economic crisis has continued unabated, and the campaign for the destruction of the PT has intensified, leading to the imprisonment of former President and PT founder Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.[1] Finally, the Armed Forces have increasingly intervened in political life, particularly through the occupation of peripheral areas in Rio de Janeiro. Their close articulation with the Judiciary is encapsulated in the appointment of General Fernando Azevedo e Silva as ‘advisor’ to the President of the Supreme Court, and in statements that would be scandalous in less turbulent times, such as the thinly-disguised demand for Lula’s incarceration issued by Army Commander General Eduardo Villas Boas. The co-ordinated shift of public institutions toward an exceptionally excluding variety of neoliberalism was challenged by attempts to rebuild the left through Lula’s campaign for the presidency and, in particular, through his convoy around the country in early 2018, which led to his steep rise in the opinion polls. ... read full story / add a comment
southern africa / gender / non-anarchist press Saturday October 27, 2018 - 08:34 by Gauteng Community Health Care Forum
On the 1-2 November 2018, at St George Hotel and Convention Centre in Pretoria, the summit will
sign a vague and hollow declaration in support of the fight against gender-based violence, so that
the government and the parties involved can pretend that it is supported by all sections of South
African society, coming together to fight for women, LGBTIQ+ and children, when in reality the
scourge of gender based violence will remain unchanged. ... read full story / add a comment
international / anti-fascism / non-anarchist press Thursday October 25, 2018 - 18:22 by Mario Candeias
It is the time of monsters. The organic crisis of the old neoliberal project has also brought forth the rise of a new radical right. Yet these monsters are quite different from one another: we have strong men like Trump, Kurz and Macron – political entrepreneurs shaping a new authoritarianism from positions of governance. Theresa May and Boris Johnson act quite similar, with less success, but unlike the others they are established representatives of authoritarian elite right-wing conservatism. They all share an anti-establishment discourse, although they have strong capital factions backing them. ... read full story / add a comment
southern africa / workplace struggles / non-anarchist press Saturday September 29, 2018 - 07:27 by International Labour, Research & Information Group
The International Labour, Research & Information Group (ILRIG) along with the forty-one (41) community, labour and other civil society organisations, gathered in Johannesburg for the 16th Annual Globalisation School, condemn in the strongest possible terms the violent repression of the legitimate protest engaged in today by casualised/contract workers at the Ekurhuleni Municipality. The protest was organised by the Simunye Workers Forum (SWF), who are part of the School. ... read full story / add a comment

Syria’s war has transformed the country in both shattering and subtle ways. While many evolutions are for the worse, others inspire cautious optimism: Syrians have shown relentless ingenuity in adapting to every stage of a horrendous conflict, salvaging remnants of dignity, solidarity and vitality amid nightmarish circumstances. ... read full story / add a comment

greece / turkey / cyprus / economy / non-anarchist press Thursday September 13, 2018 - 19:04 by VASSILIS K. FOUSKAS and BULENT GOKAY
Mainstream pundits and media commentators see the crisis in US-Turkey relations and the collapse of the Turkish currency as a result of Turkey's refusal to hand over to the US an American Evangelical priest. The analysis here shows that the roots of the conflict in times of crisis, uncertainty and hegemonic instability, go far beyond political epiphenomena. The US, a declining superpower, is trying to use the power of the dollar as a weapon to punish Turkey and other disobedient actors in the international system. ... read full story / add a comment
américa del norte / méxico / community struggles / other libertarian press Tuesday August 21, 2018 - 18:32 by Kate Shea Baird
Este noviembre los movimientos de resistencia al trumpismo en EE. UU. tendrán su primera cita electoral nacional: las elecciones de medio término. En el contexto preelectoral, la victoria de diversas candidaturas rupturistas en las primarias del partido Demócrata ha generado muchas expectativas, algunas de las cuales se identifican abiertamente como socialistas, como es el caso de la candidata al Congreso Alexandria Ocasio. Todo apunta a que sectores importantes de la población consideran necesario no sólo ganar al partido Republicano, sino también echar a los demócratas establishment. ... read full story / add a comment

NOT content with calling Jeremy Corbyn a “fucking anti-semite and racist,” and treating herself as the victim when the Labour Party threatened to act on a third party complaint about her use of outrageous and abusive language against a fellow Labour MP whom she has known for several decades, and is the leader of the Labour Party, Margaret Hodge has had the chutzpah to compare her fight against Corbyn’s alleged anti-semitism with her fight in her Barking constituency against the British National Party (BNP). ... read full story / add a comment

Hay inexactitudes e injusticas ridículas cometidas por los nuevos evangelistas. Y ni siquiera todo lo incoherente que se plantea, es capaz de estremecer a un importante sector de la izquierda, donde algunos han mostrado ser cobardes y rastreros que guardan silencio cómplice, con tal de malversar un par de adeptos o votos. Son fanáticos, irracionales, dogmáticos, mercaderes de ideales según cómo fluctúe la bolsa de valores éticos en la orbe impuesta por el mercado internacional. ... read full story / add a comment
central america / caribbean / the left / non-anarchist press Thursday May 10, 2018 - 03:06 by Trevor Evans
In 1979 a popular uprising led by the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) overthrew the U.S.-backed Somoza-family dictatorship which had ruled Nicaragua since the 1930s, and in 1984 the Sandinistas and their presidential candidate, Daniel Ortega, decisively won the country’s first free elections in decades. The Sandinistas introduced a major programme of land redistribution and a significant expansion of public health care and education services. However, initial gains were undermined under the impact of an armed opposition (‘the contra’) organized and promoted by the U.S., a collapse of international raw material prices in the early 1980s, and Sandinista policy errors, including an over-ambitious programme of large-scale investments. ... read full story / add a comment

russia / ukraine / belarus / miscellaneous / non-anarchist press Friday March 23, 2018 - 00:08 by David Mandel
This article examines the bases of popular support for recently re-elected Russian president Vladimir Putin. Although this support is strenuously “cultivated” by the regime by various illicit means, it nevertheless has a genuine basis that needs to be understood by people on the left who are trying to develop an enlightened position in the escalating confrontation between the “West” and Russia. ... read full story / add a comment
