A estratégia geral ao nível dos governos, para a Cimeira Europa – África, a 7 e 8 de Dezembro, em Lisboa, apresenta um aspecto muito claro : cooptando abertamente as ONG, sejam elas internacionais, de países europeus ou africanas, pretendem realizar parcerias estratégicas.

As organizações (sindicatos, associações, colectivos, etc.) presentes no terreno social, nomeadamente, no apoio aos imigrantes e outras situações de precariedade, deveriam unir os seus esforços, porém mantendo-se fora da hegemonia política neoliberal. Caso se deixem cooptar, serão em breve neutralizadas, burocratizadas e perderão, por completo, a sua razão de ser.

The Congo, a huge country located in the heart of Africa, is another perfect example why we have to change the political system we have today. The Congo has, since the beginning of outside intervention, suffered from different forms of violence and will also suffer from it in the future as long as there is no new global system. Millions of people have been killed and the killing, poverty and exploitation still go on. No government will ever change the situation of the Congolese people.

This article highlights how outside influence has played a major role in the Congo’s history and how it still affects life in the Congo. It thereby explores how the nation-state is a means to divide people along artificial lines, especially in Africa. Another reason for conflicts in Africa and especially in the Congo is the grouping of people into so-called “tribes” or “ethnic groups” that has been done by the colonial administration and the church. Its purpose was to put artificial borders between people in order to divide them and its political importance, even today, ignores what the real problems in the Congo are, namely the state and capitalism. Both exploit the Congo because of financial and political power and greed.

The following is an interview held with Sami Hermez on the 6th of June on the current crisis in Lebanon, that started on the 20th of May with the fighting between Fath al-Islam and the Lebanese Army. This has meant a major crisis for the Palestinian refugees, thousands of them being further displaced, many of them killed and wounded.

Sami is a Lebanese anthropologist who has been active in providing support and relief to Palestinian and Lebanese refugees. As well, he writes frequently to Electronic Lebanon taking a brave political stance in defense of Palestinians and against the US project for the region.

The second week of June will mark forty years since the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza in the 1967 Six Day war. This is now the longest enduring military occupation in the world. We can use this symbolic moment to hit out at those who benefit and profit from the pain and despair in Palestine, and to send the Israeli and G8 governments a message they cannot ignore.

This is a call-out for international direct actions against the occupation on June 6-12. We call in particular for actions against corporations profiting directly from the occupation that publicly shame them and/or cause them economic damage. Information on corporations involved with the occupation is available from and many other sources, including a recent report by War on Want available at

The Darfur War has been described as the worst conflict in the world today - and yet despite intensive media coverage, many aspects of the conflict are misunderstood because of the propaganda battle that runs in tandem with the war on the ground. The view from the ground offers different perspectives.

The USA alleges genocide against the Fur, Masaalit and Zaghawa tribes by Khartoum-backed Janjaweed militia – an interest spurred no doubt by Washington’s desire for access to Sudan’s oil reserves which are currently being exploited exclusively by China and to a lesser extent, Malaysia and India. On the other hand, Nafi Ali Nafi, deputy leader of the ruling National Congress Party admitted that Khartoum armed and trained a “popular defence force” from among civilians to be used to support the Sudanese Defence Force in its battle against rebels in Darfur, while denying any genocidal campaign.
Sudan remains, in World Bank terms, a highly indebted poor country. But oil is changing all that: by 2006, oil accounted for over 25% of Sudan’s GDP. However little of the wealth from that 120,000 barrels of crude a year finds its way into an economy propped up by Bangladeshi guest workers lured to Sudan on false promises, or into neglected extremities like Darfur...

El Estado Islámico

Mucho se ha especulado, acerca de la financiación del llamado Estado Islámico (EI, ISIS o Daesh). Lo que se sabe, es que el tiene una circulación de venta de petróleo que gira en torno a US 1 millón de dólares diario, teniendo posibilidad de alcanzar 3 millones de dólares. ¿La duda no es como extrae petróleo, ya que domina territorios con refinerías, pero sí como compensa estas ventas?.

Turquía apoyará al Estado Islámico porque les sirve en la lucha contra los kurdos –que amenazan la integridad del Estado kemalista- y en su lucha en contra de Assad –piedra en el zapato para el proyecto sunita sectario de las dictaduras fundamentalistas pro-EEUU. Sencillamente, le son funcionales. Y los protegerá todo lo que pueda, aunque eso le cueste tensiones con Rusia. Ahora, Erdoğan es quien podría haber dado el empujón necesario para que Rusia se decida a dar el respaldo y reconocimiento al movimiento de liberación kurdo, que necesita urgentemente armas y apoyos logísticos. Esa es la preocupación de la OTAN por la integridad territorial turca.

Ο ιμπεριαλισμός, όπως εκφράζεται είτε από τις μεγάλες Δυτικές δυνάμεις είτε από ανερχόμενες δυνάμεις όπως η Κίνα ή η Ρωσία, είτε, ακόμα και από μικρές περιφερειακές δυνάμεις, όπως η Νότια Αφρική, δεν ωφελεί την πλειοψηφία των λαών τους. Επίσης, προφανώς, δεν είναι προς όφελος των συμφερόντων των απλών ανθρώπων που υπόκεινται στον ιμπεριαλισμό - αν και οι τοπικές άρχουσες τάξεις βρίσκουν συχνά τρόπους για να φιλοξενήσουν το σύστημα.
Αυτό σημαίνει ότι ο αγώνας ενάντια στον ιμπεριαλισμό δεν είναι μια μάχη μεταξύ ενωμένων εθνών ή περιφερειών, όπως ο «Βορράς» ή ο «Νότος», αλλά ένας αγώνας που πρέπει να καθοδηγείται από τις λαϊκές τάξεις, σε όλο τον κόσμο, κατά των αρχουσών ελίτ, σε όλο τον κόσμο.

Υπάρχει μια επιλογή στην οποία πρέπει να προχωρήσουμε τις επόμενες ημέρες και τα χρόνια, μιας και το Παρίσι δεν θα είναι η τελευταία θηριωδία και τέτοιες επιθέσεις έχουν σχεδιαστεί ακριβώς για να εντείνουν τον μιλιταρισμό και να εξάψουν το μίσος. Οι σύμμαχοί μας δεν είναι οι δυνάμεις της ιμπεριαλιστικής σφαγής που δημιούργησαν αυτές τις συνθήκες, αλλά μάλλον όλες εκείνες δυνάμεις της περιοχής αυτής που αγωνίζονται για μια πραγματικά ελεύθερη κοινωνία.

Il terrorismo islamico è solo una forma di depistaggio. È proprio una curiosa circostanza, niente affatto casuale, quella in cui uno degli attentatori di Parigi porti addosso un prezioso documento personale come il passaporto (guarda caso, di nazionalità siriana). Una strana "circostanza" che somiglia molto ad un atto di depistaggio. Siamo giunti al paradosso che chiunque si sforzi di ragionare liberamente (e criticamente) con la propria testa è accusato di "fantasticare"...

As the 100th anniversary of the outbreak in August 1914 of World War One fades, let us remember that imperialism harms all working class people – including those in imperialist and Western countries, and the white working class.

It is often said that Western workers benefit from imperialism, or imperialist profits, or that welfare in the West is funded by imperialism – but all of these claims fall in the face of realities like World War One (1914-1918). This war – between Germany and Britain and their respective allies – was, at least in part, fought for a re-division of the European-ruled colonies.

El propósito del neoliberal gobierno de Juan Manuel Santos, representante de lo más rancio de la oligarquía colombiana con el proceso de paz que está en plena marcha con la insurgencia de las FARC y el que está por comenzar con el ELN es muy claro: desmovilizar a estas guerrillas no solo militar, sino política e ideológicamente, y de esta manera asimilarlas al decadente establecimiento o cooptarlas para bloquear cualquier posibilidad de cambio en Colombia. Esta interesante lectura la hace un "colombianólogo" que ha aprovechado su sólida formación en Ciencias Sociales para estudiar pormenorizada y minuciosamente la conflictiva historia socioeconómica de este país andino gobernado desde su emancipación por una elite de derecha fundida en un corrupto bipartidismo liberal-conservador que hoy por simples afanes electorales se ha travestido en varios seudo partidos con signo neoliberal, la mayor parte de los cuales con proceder mafioso, y cuyo único propósito es esquilmar las arcas del Estado para el beneficio concupiscente de sus maleantes dirigentes.

José Antonio Gutiérrez Dantón, un activista e investigador social venido del Cono Sur que reside en Dublín, la capital irlandesa, comprometido con el trabajo de los movimientos sociales y populares de América Latina, es un estudioso a fondo de la realidad colombiana. Por esa razón le cae muy bien el calificativo de "colombianólogo", no solo porque se ha metido en los entresijos del devenir histórico del país sino que lo ha recorrido, lo ha palpado, pasando temporadas, pulsando la opinión de dirigentes políticos, sociales y comunitarios, y siendo testigo directo de sus horrores y también de sus cualidades.

Sus trabajos periodísticos y bibliográficos se caracterizan por su agudeza en el análisis y su seriedad en las denuncias. En varias oportunidades su ágil pluma la ha utilizado para denunciar el terrorismo de Estado en Colombia y la complicidad (y/o cooperación) de los Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea en la comisión de este tipo de crímenes.

En Irlanda trabajó en un centro de solidaridad con América Latina; es colaborador de varias publicaciones internacionales; autor del libro Problemas y Posibilidades del Anarquismo (en portugués, Faisca ed., 2011) y coordinador del trabajo bibliográfico Orígenes Libertarios del Primero de Mayo en América Latina (Quimantú ed. 2010). Actualmente desarrolla una investigación doctoral sobre violencia y tejido social en Colombia y da clases en Trinity College en Dublín.

Dado su amplio conocimiento de la realidad colombiana y el hecho de que viene siguiendo en detalle el proceso de paz entre el gobierno de Santos y la insurgencia de las FARC, y el que se avizora con el ELN, el Observatorio Sociopolítico Latinoamericano lo invito al siguiente diálogo periodístico.

The immense catastrophe that struck Turkey in the streets of Ankara, the capital city, on 10 October, when two bombs exploded in the midst of a thronging crowd of what would possibly turn out to be hundreds of thousands of people, leading to the death of an indefinite number of people, in any case exceeding one hundred, and the wounding of hundreds, some still under the risk of death, is a sharp reminder, if any were needed, that this is a country undergoing a severe political crisis. The tragic loss of life, ranging from a nine-year old boy to a seventy-year old woman and involving the deaths of a very high number of young people, has left the working-class movement, the broad left, the community of Alevis, the minority religious denomination in Turkey, and the Kurdish people, all of whom were involved in the peace demonstration that was attacked, in profound grief and mourning. It is cause for consolation, however, to witness the fact that the main aim of this hideous attack has been thwarted since, despite the grief, the masses have not been intimidated and have come out in militant mood both to protest and to bury their dead.

In unusually precipitated fashion, the government has claimed to have carried out an investigation on what it purports to be a double suicide bombing. They point their fingers at the ill-famed ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS) and claim that this was an attack on the unity of Turkey (why those who target the unity of the country have for decades now attacked the demonstrations of the working-class or of the oppressed minorities and never a right-wing rally remains a mystery!)
