international / migration / racism / non-anarchist press Wednesday April 22, 2015 - 12:53 by Cinzia Arruzza
In the night between April 18th and April 19th a boat filled with up to 950 migrants sank in the Mediterranean Sea, 70 miles north of Libya, while trying to reach the southern European border. This was not only the greatest tragedy to date involving migrants in the Mediterranean Sea, it is also the last of a long series of deaths: around 14,600 from 1993 to November, 2012; 900 in little more than a year from January, 2014 to April, 2015, before this latest tragedy. ... read full story / add a comment

Durante 2014 fueron asesinados 25 activistas ambientales en el territorio colombiano.
"Cada semana son asesinados dos activistas medioambientales en el mundo", esta es la revelación más reciente de la ONG Global Witness que este lunes presentó un informe titulado '¿Cuántos más?'. La organización encargada de investigar casos de corrupción y abusos en la explotación de recursos naturales, aseguró que las cifras pueden ser mucho mayores al no existir datos oficiales por parte de varios gobiernos a quienes la problemática parece no importarles.

Three decades ago, with the end of the Cold War and the dismantling of the South American dictatorships, many hoped that the much talked about ‘peace dividend’ promised by Bush senior and Thatcher would actually materialise. No such luck. Instead, we have experienced continuous wars, upheavals, intolerance and fundamentalisms of every sort – religious, ethnic and imperial. The exposure of the Western world’s surveillance networks has heightened the feeling that democratic institutions aren’t functioning as they should, that, like it or not, we are living in the twilight period of democracy itself. ... read full story / add a comment

In the open­ing salvos of Latin America’s uneven lurch to the Left in the early twenty-first cen­tury, Bolivia dis­tin­guished itself as the region’s most rad­i­cal socio-political ter­rain.1 Left-indigenous move­ments in the coun­try­side and cityscapes alike threw the state into cri­sis and brought two suc­ces­sive neolib­eral pres­i­dents to their knees – Gon­zalo Sánchez de Lozada in 2003, and Car­los Mesa in 2005.2 Evo Morales’s party, the Movimiento al Social­ismo (Move­ment Towards Social­ism, MAS), leapt into the power vac­uum opened up by this series of revolts, and there has been seri­ous debate on the Left as to how best to but­ton down the cen­tral polit­i­cal dynamic of the coun­try ever since. In a coun­try where 62 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion self-identified as indige­nous in the 2001 cen­sus, Morales became the first indige­nous pres­i­dent through the Decem­ber 2005 elec­tions with 54 per­cent of the pop­u­lar vote, assum­ing office in Jan­u­ary 2006. He repeated this extra­or­di­nary elec­toral suc­cess in Decem­ber 2009, with 64 per­cent, and again in Octo­ber 2014, with 61 percent. ... read full story / add a comment

The Thembelihle Crisis Committee, the United Front (UF), the Right to Know (R2K) Campaign and the Democratic Left Front call on all people of good conscience in South Africa to endorse the call for an end to the security siege of Thembelihle. Since the 25th of February 2015, Thembelihle has faced a de facto State of Emergency at the hands of the South African Police Services (SAPS) and other security agents. This undeclared, unofficial State of Emergency in Thembelihle is an attack on all our constitutionally guaranteed rights to and freedoms to organise, associate and freely express ourselves. We call for urgent action to put pressure on the SAPS to end the siege. We call for the creation of conducive conditions for free, open and democratic political activity in which the people of Thembelihle may express and exercise their right to protest, and have their demands for a decent life of dignity met.

Hundreds of thousands of chiefly white middle class protesters took to the streets in Brazil on 15 March in an organized upsurge of hatred against the federal administration led by President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT). These protests are far more cohesive and better organized than the previous wave of anti-government demonstrations, in 2013; their demands are unambiguously reactionary, and they include primarily the country's elite. ... read full story / add a comment

Over four years since mass uprisings ousted sclerotic regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, it can seem that the initial hopes represented by these movements lie in tatters. Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq remain mired in bloody armed conflicts that have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands and displaced millions more within and across borders. In the pivotal case of Egypt, military rule has returned through the violent crushing of protests, the arrests of an estimated 40,000 people and the rebuilding of the repressive structures of the [Hosni] Mubarak era. Elsewhere, autocratic governments look more secure in their rule today than they have for many years. ... read full story / add a comment

I personally make just over $17 an hour, while the average wage of a plow driver is $38,000 a year. And yet you have made it clear that you will not tax the wealthy (like yourself) who can afford it to cover the budget gap which you created. But I do not expect you to necessarily understand the hardships you are asking us to suffer, as I am told you are personally worth ten million dollars. Maybe you don’t understand that taking $36 a paycheck out of my wages (which on average you are proposing for all plow drivers) is the difference between making or missing a mortgage payment, a utility bill, or buying a pair of shoes for the kids. Maybe you cannot understand. ... read full story / add a comment

On January 25th, Syriza (Coalition of the Radical Left) formed a government in Greece with the help of the ANEL (Independent Greeks). Within 24 hours direct attacks, threats and provocations aimed at the Greek government, about to begin negotiations with EU and Eurozone leaders, began. The attacks were pre-emptive strikes against efforts to find a quick, viable and productive solution to the Greek debt problem that continues to strangle the Greek economy and society; time is very short and everyone is aware that it is working against the efforts of the Greek government that needs to reach an agreement by February 16 or February 28 at the latest. ... read full story / add a comment
west africa / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Monday February 09, 2015 - 16:08 by Ernest Tate
A press report in 1983 that a popular uprising in Upper Volta, a small and poor land-locked country in Western Africa had led to an obscure, but charismatic army officer becoming head of state was truly inspiring news for all those looking for some kind of breakthrough against imperialism in that part of the world. It had come after the depressing news that Margaret Thatcher's Britain had defeated Argentina in the Malvinas and Ronald Reagan's America had crushed Grenada, a clear message to the world that, on a moment's notice, imperialism would brutally crush anything that threatened its power. But because the American empire had been taken by surprise by the Cuban revolution twenty-four years earlier, many of us were then hopeful that maybe we were witnessing such a possibility again, in Africa. ... read full story / add a comment

Los atentados y ataques en París han causado conmoción, por lo inesperado, por su brutalidad y por el número de víctimas. En los noticiarios han copado el contenido y han causado una gran reacción. La primera la veíamos ayer, muy interesante, por tratarse el periódico atacado Charlie Hebdo de una publicación satírica, con cientos de ilustraciones de distintos ilustradores de todo el mundo, condenando el ataque (ver interesante artículo a este respecto: “Yo NO soy Charlie” de José Antonio Gutiérrez Danton). Hoy en París con esa manifestación multitudinaria. Y mañana al parecer con otra a la que van a acudir incluso dignatarios de distintos países, incluido Rajoy. Obviamente la situación es trágica pero la reacción me hace cuestionar lo que pasa y como se utilizará. ... read full story / add a comment

Francia está convulsionada, surcada por la confusión e invadida por los miedos (que casi siempre desembocan en comportamientos xenófobos), porque esta vez la guerra que tanto provocaron y alentaron sus gobernantes ya no alcanza para verla solamente en los televisores. Ahora las balas de un lado y del otro resuenan en las calles de París y sus alrededores, y como no podía ser de otra manera hay muertos. Algunos, como los colaboradores del periódico "Charlie Hebdo", masacrados en su lugar de trabajo. Otros, fusilados por la policía francesa, que en su afán de "encontrar culpables", militariza con más de 80 mil efectivos la capital y sus pueblos adyacentes. Esta es la foto que muestra al mundo, en este particular principio de año, un país que a diferencia de los Estados Unidos, siempre se las ha arreglado para disimular su afición a la violencia, y dentro de ella, las "hazañas" de años de terrorismo estatal.

It was Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight who tipped me over the edge.

To be fair, he wasn’t wholly responsible. If it wasn’t for all the lunacy that preceded him, I probably would have dismissed his cartoon as just another Herald Sun atrocity, more a piece of Murdoch-madness to be mocked rather than trigger for outrage. But context is everything. And after days of sanctimonious blather about freedom of speech and the Enlightenment values of Western civilisation, his was one pencil-warfare cartoon too many. ... read full story / add a comment

The gunmen are currently understood to be Muslim extremists. This attack came minutes after the paper tweeted this drawing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. ... read full story / add a comment

textPalestine-Israel, Celebrating a 12 years of persistent struggle in Bil'in and a small victory* 14:32 Sat 18 Feb by Ilan S. 1 comments

Regional change and new Israeli war minister who is clearly against annexation of additional of parts of Palestine (and even for cutting parts annexed 1948) resulted in the diminishing of the suppression of the non armed popular struggle. For months the Israeli forces diminished the harassment of the Friday demos of villages activists and the Israeli anarchists against the wall. In bil'in they nearly stopped entirely any shooting of tear gas and bullets, seldom tried to stop us from approaching the separation wall... The participants of the big demo of the 12th year celebration could not see even one soldier till the end of the demo when kids forced open the gate of the wall and resulted in a mildest ever response. The failure of the big plan of US to subvert the countries of the region as it exported terror (Al Quida, Daesh and Shieh advances) forced it to compromises with Iran, Rojave, (and probably with Syrian Assad, Russia and the Palestinians).

Μόνο μια ριζοσπαστική αλλαγή –μια νέα Αφρική βασισμένη στην ελευθεριακή και σοσιαλιστική ανάπτυξη– μπορεί να σπάσει αυτό τον φαύλο κύκλο. Αυτό περιλαμβάνει τόσο τον αγώνα ενάντια στις αφρικανικές ελίτ, όσο και ενάντια στον ιμπεριαλισμό. Και αυτό με τη σειρά του απαιτεί μια ρήξη με τις ιδέες του «τρίτου κόσμου», που αγνοούν τα ταξικά ζητήματα μέσα στην Αφρική και με τον εθνικισμό, που καλεί σε ενότητα όλους τους Αφρικανούς – μία άνευ ουσίας ενότητα μεταξύ των τοπικών καταπιεστών και των θυμάτων τους. Χωρίς ένα προοδευτικό αριστερό και αναρχικό σχέδιο, οι απογοητεύσεις και η δυστυχία των μαζών απλώς θα καλυφθεί από κενές ιδέες (η «δημοκρατία») ή αντιδραστικά κινήματα (όπως το Boko Haram) και συναισθήματα (ο ρατσισμός και το μίσος προς τους μετανάστες).

image2017 South African Budget Speech: No Pravin, it was not progressive nor redistributive Feb 26 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

On Wednesday, the Minister of Finance of South Africa stood up in the circus that passes itself off as a National Parliament and without any sense of irony what-so- ever declared that the South African state’s budget for 2017 was redistributive and progressive. If the Minister was to be believed, therefore, the budget was aimed at making a dent in the substantial class and racial inequalities that exist in the country. To back this up, supporters pointed out that the tax rate on top earners was raised marginally in the budget and people receiving dividends from shares would have to pay 5% more on these in tax. Despite this, one word could sum up the idea that the budget presented was redistributive and progressive: bullshit. Rather the budget presented by Minister Pravin Gordhan was yet again another attack on the working class. What the budget did was to favour corporations at the expense of the poor. In doing so, it remained based on the neoliberal dogma that has defined South Africa’s post-apartheid politics. In other words, the budget was a vivid demonstration of how the state is an instrument and weapon of the ruling class that functions to benefit that class. This can be seen throughout the budget, including how the state plans to raise money and how it plans to spend it.

Sizin bu onurlu mücadelenizle yaratılmaya çalışılan bu toplumsal deneyin gerçekleşmeyeceğini biliyoruz. Size ve direnişinize selamlarımızı gönderiyoruz.

Σύντροφοι και συντρόφισσες, από αυτή τη μικρή γωνιά του πλανήτη παρακολουθούμε το θαρραλέο αγώνα σας. Οι λαοί της Τουρκίας έχουν μακρά και ένδοξη ιστορία στον αγώνα ενάντια στο φασισμό, που στιγμή δεν έχει αφήσει να ανασάνουν ελεύθερα τα όμορφα μέρη σας και τις γειτονιές σας. Γνωρίζουμε ότι όχι μόνο αντιμετωπίζετε θαρραλέα την καταστολή, αλλά οικοδομείτε καινούριους κόσμους σε εξαιρετικά δύσκολες συνθήκες. Αντλούμε έμπνευση και κουράγιο από τον αγώνα σας. Ξέρουμε ότι με τον αξιοπρεπή αγώνα που δίνετε δεν θα επιτρέψετε να περάσει αυτό το κοινωνικό πείραμα. Σας στέλνουμε την πιο ζεστή αγκαλιά μας.
