eastern asia / imperialism / war Friday March 28, 2008 18:45 byLaure Akai   text 5 comments (last - saturday august 23, 2008 10:00)
The struggle to be free is one that is commendable and deserves our sympathy. At this time when the state is committing brutal violence against a people, solidarity and action is needed and in fact, around the world well-wishers have expressed their outrage at the situation in Tibet. Protest movements have been calling for "an end to cultural imperalism", "freedom", even for "crushing the oppressor" and are united in such slogans and demands. Yet what if Tibet were to gain independence from China?
The question of national liberation is a complicated one. Discrimination, destruction of culture and community are forms of repression which are often seen in the contest of nation against nation instead of in the context of the ruling classes against the subjugated. Thus national liberation movements of all kinds tend to create the illusion of a mass common interest against an oppressor which is always external. "Self-determination" is too often a slogan which really means establishing the right of the elites of a given nation to exert power and influence, both economic and political, over those who would be subjects of a new nation state.

venezuela / colombia / imperialismo / guerra Thursday February 28, 2008 20:44 byJosé Antonio Gutiérrez D.
El 4 de Febrero, marcharon unos tres millones de personas en Colombia en contra de las FARC-EP. Es un número importante, que plantea a esta organización insurgente la necesidad inaplazable de corregir sus métodos viciados.

Hubo muchos que dijeron (uniéndose al coro de A. Rangel) que esta marcha representaba un supuesto “despertar” de la “sociedad” colombiana, en que ya no habría, supuestamente, espacio para la indiferencia. Pero el 6 de Marzo es cuando realmente tendremos la oportunidad de comprobar si esto fue genuinamente un “despertar” o, sencillamente, una marcha de sonámbulos en medio de la larga noche del Plan Colombia. Ese día los que marcharán serán las víctimas de la violencia, todas las víctimas, convocadas en una manifestación de repudio a la violencia de Estado –lo que por extensión incluye al paramilitarismo. Pero lo más importante es el espíritu de construcción de paz con justicia social que anima a esta nueva convocatoria: su principal mensaje será el acuerdo humanitario y la salida políticamente negociada al conflicto

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.

Στις Η.Π.Α., οι μαζικές απεργίες εργαζόμενων για τους μισθούς πείνας και οι εξεγέρσεις ενάντια στη δολοφονική κρατική ρατσιστική βία, οι αγώνες των κρατούμενων ενάντια στη βιομηχανία της φυλακής και οι κινητοποιήσεις των μεταναστών κρατούν ζωντανή την αντίσταση.

textFifteen Years of Occupation: Afghanistan Since the Invasion Oct 25 14:38 by Michael Skinner 0 comments

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.

Ni el pueblo colombiano es idiota, ni esquizofrénico, ni cavernícola, ni el 2 de Octubre se jugaba la última carta por la paz. Que esto no ha sido el “fin del fin” queda demostrado tanto por la súbita disposición a re-evaluar lo acordado por parte del santismo, así como por la emergente movilización popular y ciudadana, la cual no revertirá la derrota política del 2 de Octubre, pero que, en el escenario que se ha abierto en el post-plebiscito, puede inclinar la balanza a favor de las fuerzas populares de seguir desarrollándose. Puede, entonces, servir para convertir una derrota en el corto plazo, en una victoria para los sectores populares a mediano y largo plazo.

Three activists (Michael Knapp, Anja Flach, Ercan Ayboga) who carried solidarity actions with the Kurdish people while based in Germany, decided to visit Rojava, one of the three regions of Western Kurdistan, to learn in detail about the experience, its challenges, difficulties, strengths and potential. It is thus how they ended up writing one of the best accounts to date of the Kurdish experience in Western Kurdistan, a must-read to anyone interested in helping to make the world a better place (Michael Knapp, Anja Flach, Ercan Ayboga, “Revolution in Rojava.

Üç yıl süren müzakerelerden sonra Küba'nın Havana şehrinde, Juan Manuel Santos hükumetiyle FARC-EP arasında bir barış anlaşması imzalanırken, ELN ile olan süreç çıkmaza girmiş ve EPL ile olan ise siyasetin gündeminde bile değil. Müzakerelerin iflas etmesinden korkan öngörüler boşa çıkarıldı. Bu anlaşma, bir mücadele devrini kapatarak yeni senaryoları ve yeni olasılıkları açacak. Bu isyancı hareketin silah bırakma kararı, geri dönüşsüz gözüküyor ve hareket, ne olursa olsun, "tekrar sivil hayata katılmak" denilen yolda devam edecek. Bu anlaşma yapısal değişiklikler getirmeyecek olmasına rağmen, kırsal nüfus için kayda değer iyileşmeler sunuyor. [English] [Castellano]

textTurkey's Move into Syria: Challenging the Kurds, Overthrowing Rojava Aug 30 14:38 by Phil Hearse 1 comments

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.

Turkish troops and so-called 'moderate Islamist' Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants have entered Jarablus town centre and taken over all government buildings from Islamic State. Reports say almost no clashes took place between the two sides as IS militants had evacuated the city days before. Footage from FSA militants also shows that there is no civilian presence left in the city in Syria's north.

Giovedi scorso, 23 giugno 2016, senza dubbio è stata una data storica in Colombia. In questo giorno si è concordato, nel solco dei dialoghi di pace e del tavolo di negoziazioni di Havana, il cessate-il-fuoco bilaterale e definitivo tra il governo nazionale di Juan Manuel Santos e la insorgenza delle Forze Armate Rivoluzionarie della Colombia – Esercito del Popolo (FARC-EP). Per molt* colombiane e colombiani, si tratta di un desiderio che si avvera. Pur condividendo l’entusiasmo popolare, segnaliamo che questa ancora non è la fine della guerra e che resta un lungo cammino da percorrere verso l'ottenimento di cambiamenti sociali reali a beneficio dei lavoratori e delle lavoratrici,de i settori sociali e dei popoli.

I piani e le cospirazioni tra Turchia, Qatar ed il Governo Regionale Curdo (KRG in Iraq) contro la Rojava non hanno mai fine. Documenti messi a disposizione da Wikileaks di recente riguardano incontri ed accordi tra questi tre soggetti ed un incontro segreto tra Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi e Barzani, il capo del KRG, caso mai ci fossero stati dei dubbi. Basta guadare i link in fondo all'articolo.

This article is about retaking the city of Mosul that has been under control of Isis since 09/06/2014. At the moment the Iraqi government is in talk with KRG and US forces about making plan to liberate it. In my opinion this will be one of the bloodiest battle that could happen in Iraq since 2003 after the invasion. I believe there is a hidden agenda, when Isis is defeated, it will try to run away. The liberator forces may push them to withdraw towards Jazeea in Rojava. So it is necessary for YPG/J and the Guerrillas to change their tactic.

Chi ha tutto l'interesse ad arruolare, addestrare e strumentalizzare i miliziani jihadisti, temo che non insegua affatto delle finalità religiose. Mi riferisco a quei manovratori politici che siedono nelle "alte sfere" del potere che agiscono sul terreno internazionale. L'Isis si insinua dentro i conflitti intestini al mondo islamico, in primis nello scontro secolare tra sunniti e sciiti, per rovesciare i rapporti di forza vigenti nel quadro politico arabo-islamico, in regioni geopolitiche e strategiche assai delicate e determinanti per le sorti del capitalismo, quali il Medio Oriente o il Golfo Persico, non soltanto perché ricche di materie prime e giacimenti petroliferi. Da noi, nelle società secolarizzate occidentali, gli ideali religiosi sono stati soppiantati da altri moventi, che costituiscono dei veri e propri surrogati della dimensione religiosa.

Όλες αυτές τις μέρες οι μόνοι που νιώθουν άνετα να κυκλοφορούν όλο το εικοσιτετράωρο μέσα στην πόλη είναι οι οπαδοί του κόμματος AKP και οργανωμένοι ή σκόρπιοι εθνικιστές ή φανατικοί ισλαμιστές που συμμετέχουν στην περιφρούρηση και την προστασία της πολύ- αμφιλεγόμενης τουρκικής “δημοκρατίας”.
