Na noite da última quarta-feira, 14 de março, após sair de um debate com outras mulheres negras, na Lapa, Marielle Franco foi brutalmente executada. O motorista do carro em que Marielle se encontrava, Anderson Pedro Gomes, também foi assassinado.

Executaram uma militante, mulher, negra, lésbica, nascida na Favela da Maré, defensora dos Direitos Humanos, vereadora pelo PSOL, e que havia recentemente se tornado relatora da comissão responsável por fiscalizar a Intervenção Militar no Rio de Janeiro.
Os assassinatos de Marielle e de Anderson representam uma ação orquestrada por um Estado Terrorista e Genocida, que não usa máscaras para dizimar o povo negro e para enviar um recado a todos e todas que se colocam contra o massacre desenfreado promovido nas periferias.

Ayer, al unísono en más de 140 países del mundo, de manera intercontinental, las mujeres bailaban juntas la misma danza contra el patriarcado. Las calles se llenaban de piquetes, se ultimaban las pancartas, globos, camisetas, se sonreía con la locura de la complicidad. Batucadas, caceroladas, marchas nocturnas, toma de edificios para pernoctar en ellos, asambleas feministas, reuniones para resolver dudas sindicales. La danza era imparable. Expectación e ilusión en el ambiente a partes iguales. Y la certeza absoluta de que nos hemos conjurado para hacer y cambiar la historia. ¡A las barricadas!

Estamos presenciando a inauguração de mais um capítulo do governo de “choque” aplicado ao estado do Rio de Janeiro. Um capítulo que é a plena continuação da nefasta política de segurança pública implementada no estado, alinhada ao avanço do golpe contra os trabalhadores, que destituiu anteriormente um governo que não servia mais aos plenos interesses da classe dominante nessa nova fase do sistema capitalista.

No carnaval desse ano e seguindo a tradição de resistência da cultura afro-brasileira, a Paraíso do Tuiti lavou a alma de todos os/as trabalhadores/as brasileiros, mostrando que a reforma da previdência e trabalhista são ataques contra seus direitos sociais e escancarou o passado escravocrata da elite brasileira. Agora, essa mesma elite, faz um novo acordo e aprova um plano de intervenção federal na segurança pública do Rio de Janeiro, que agora vai ficar sob controle do general do exército Walter Braga Neto.

Afrin, Afrinlilerindir. Afrin’de yaşayan halklar, bu topraklarda ölmüş ve bu topraklarda doğmuşlardır. Orada yaşamak, herhangi bir planla programla alakalı değildir. Bir strateji olarak Afrin’de değillerdir. Afrin onlar için su, ekmek , aş, oyun, öykü, arkadaş, dost, sevgili, sokak, ev, mahalledir. Devlet içinse sadece bir stratejidir.

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.

The dark clouds of 21st-century fascism are once again hanging over the heads of the people of northern Syria. As if the inhabitants of the region often referred to as Rojava haven’t suffered enough over the course of the past 7 years of war, the Turkish state has come to the conclusion that the time is ripe to pick up the fallen, bloodied sword from the corpse that is Islamic State. Together with Salafist mercenaries carrying flags of the Syrian ‘rebels’ – one of the many components of what at one historical juncture seemingly all so long ago was a cohesive ‘Free Syrian Army’ – Erdogan’s regime vows a ‘swift operation’ to destroy ‘terrorism’ in Afrin.

textThe Iran Protests: A Third Path to Political Change? Jan 19 06:36 by Fouad Oveisy and Behnam Amini 0 comments

Days of protests in Iran have caught statesmen, analysts and observers by surprise, even though the anti-austerity and anti-establishment sentiments behind this primarily working-class revolt have been brewing for years. All the same, surprise is not a common reaction across the media. An early analysis offered in a tweet by the popular and self-styled Marxist pundit, Ali Alizadeh, captures a sentiment which is common across an array of responses to these events from individuals and groups as disparate, in both aim and ideas, as the Iranian reformists, the Iranian postcolonial left, and middle class Iranians both inside and outside Iran. Alizadeh asks: “Do you realize that it is because [the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI)] is secured and external threats [to Iran’s national security] have been minimized [by the policies of the IRI], that the right to protest [inside Iran] is now recognized [by the IRI government]?…[This is why I] insist that [regional] security is the prerequisite to everything else, including [civil, political and personal] freedoms.”

The protests against the high cost of living in the cities of Khorasan province on December 28th soon spread to many cities of Iran incredibly quick and almost turned into a revolt within a week. The protests primarily targeted the high cost of living, financial difficulties and corruption. However, they quickly became politicized and began to target the foundations of the Islamic Republic (IR), namely the religious autocracy. The slogans quickly turned from “death to high cost of living” to “death to the dictator.”

textFranquismo o fascismo Dec 20 17:26 by Vicenç Navarro 0 comments



Hace ya años hubo un debate muy vivo e intenso en círculos politológicos en nuestro país sobre el tipo de régimen político que existía en España durante el periodo 1939-1978. Algunos politólogos, como el Sr. Juan Linz, de la Universidad de Yale (muy influyente en España, maestro de muchos de los profesores de Ciencias Políticas más conocidos en este país), sostenían que aquel régimen había sido un régimen autoritario, o lo que podría llamarse una dictadura a secas, sin más. Su misión era mantener el orden y la autoridad, siendo su dimensión represiva la más acentuada. Dirigida por un caudillo al que el régimen consideraba que tenía dotes casi sobrehumanas (“Caudillo por la gracia de Dios”, se decía en España para definir al Caudillo), tal tipo de Estado recibía el nombre de caudillista, siendo la forma de dictadura más común en América Latina, y que, según tales autores, incluía también la dictadura en España llamada franquista.

Resistir al sistema es enfrentarse al horror, “al más frío de todos los monstruos fríos”. La comprensión de ello llegó de forma paralela mientras cientos de cuerpos cercenados eran convertidos en cifras e informes de derechos humanos, y miles de rostros que habitaban trochas y ríos eran condenados al humo indiferente de ciudades convertidas en campos de concentración que infamemente pasaron a ser denominadas como “albergues”.

La democracia, convertida en falsedad política, es mutación de un invento mediático que aplica control social a poblaciones que terminaron creyendo que los países se transforman sin luchas de pueblos y comunidades que arriesgan la vida en acciones de hecho contra el Estado. Así construyeron modelos mentales para sociedades que olvidan las luchas de sus muertos, a quienes en vida solo profesan odio porque osaron profanar al nuevo ídolo de la mansedumbre: aquella democracia virtual que impone pacifismo a sus súbditos.

Es momento que la imagen salga de la quietud y recobre el movimiento en favor de la vida y derrote al silencio, esa petrificación cómplice de quienes se vendieron a la infamia y censura de un modelo político y económico que impone solo muerte y miseria.

textCommuniqué on the Situation in Catalonia Nov 01 16:01 by Anticapitalistas 0 comments

1. On 27 October, in fulfilment of the mandate of the referendum of 1 October in which despite police repression more than two million people participated, the Catalan Parliament proclaimed the Catalan Republic. In a Spain with a monarchy that is a direct successor of the dictator Franco, a Republic that opens up a constituent process is without doubt a proposal that breaks with the 1978 regime, with its political consensus and with a constitutional order that serves the elites. This proclamation occurs in a context of constant threats to apply article 155 and impose an authoritarian outcome on a conflict that demands an eminently political and democratic solution. In fact, in recent days the application of 155 had come to be threatened no matter what happened. We call for the application of article 155 to be rejected and for democratic, peaceful and disobedient defence of the will of the Catalan people and of their right to decide.

1- El 27 de Octubre, cumpliendo el mandato del referéndum del 1 de Octubre en el que participaron más de 2 millones de personas a pesar de la represión policial, el Parlament de Catalunya proclamó la Republica Catalana. En una España con una monarquía sucesora directa del dictador Franco, una República que abre un proceso constituyente es sin duda una propuesta que rompe con el régimen del 78, con sus consensos políticos y con un orden constitucional al servicio de las élites. Esta proclamación se produce en un contexto de amenazas constantes para aplicar el 155 y darle una salida autoritaria a un conflicto que tiene que tener una salida eminentemente política y democrática. De hecho, en los últimos días se había llegado a amenazar con la aplicación del 155 pasara lo que pasara, se hiciera lo que se hiciera. Llamamos a rechazar la aplicación del artículo 155 y a la defensa democrática, pacífica y desobediente de la voluntad del pueblo catalán y su derecho a decidir.

The Declaration begins by reciting the full text of a resolution adopted October 10 by the parliamentary representatives of the pro-independence parties. The resolution recalls the repeated and frustrated attempts by Catalonia since the adoption of the post-Franco Spanish constitution of 1978 to expand the very limited administrative autonomy it grants into political recognition as a nation within the Spanish state.

In 1713-14, it took the troops of Spain’s Borbon monarchy 14 months of siege before taking Barcelona and ending Catalan self-rule. In September 2017, Catalonia is again under siege, this time from the central Spanish People’s Party (PP) government. Under prime minister Mariano Rajoy the Spanish state is concentrating all its firepower on stopping the Catalan government’s October 1 independence referendum. On that day, if this siege is successfully resisted, Catalan citizens will vote on whether “Catalonia should become an independent state in the form of a republic.”

In Catalonia an important process of independence is taking place against Spain. At the request of the Popular Party (PP), the Spanish Constitutional Court declared the Catalan Statute of 2010, unconstitutional. This statute was negotiated between the Government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and later endorsed by the Spanish Parliament. Since then, the number of Catalans who want to become independent from Spain has not stopped growing.

Desde diversos procesos que hoy nos organizamos en la ciudad de Bogotá alrededor de las luchas estudiantiles, feministas y de género, comunicativas, barriales, educativas populares y comunitarias, impulsamos este evento como una apuesta colectiva clave para impulsar y fortalecer los procesos populares que hoy se piensan desde un caminar autónomo por la construcción de sujetos, comunidades y territorios libres de todo tipo de dominación social.

En este caminar en el que decidimos juntarnos para luchar, creemos que es hora de dar un nuevo paso que nos permita seguir avanzando en la construcción de un referente común que fortalezca tanto nuestros procesos como las luchas del pueblo en general. No obstante, creemos que esta también es una oportunidad para encontrarnos con otras organizaciones que están luchando en otros sectores, comunidades y territorios, y de las que consideramos podemos tener afinidades tanto en las apuestas políticas como en las formas de organizarnos y de luchar.

Desde la sabana de Bogotá les enviamos un fuerte abrazo y agradecemos su atención.

text[South Africa] Kroonstad explodes – Call for solidarity Jun 29 05:16 by Maokeng Advice And Resource Centre 0 comments

The Free State Housing Campaign started door to door work in 3 wards (367 RDP households) in Kroonstad, Free State, and a mass meeting was held in each ward and then a mass march in Kroonstad. All this led to a broadening of the campaign as expressed in well over a thousand residents marching in Kroonstad and putting their demands very clearly to various government departments giving them 7 days to respond. At a report-back meeting held on Sunday 11th June there was extreme anger at Governments response and well “the shit and the ‘gatvol’ factor hit the fan” when the community marched in the township and were attacked by the police. 16 activists were jailed, charged with public violence and eventually released. This is a call for solidarity to contribute no matter how small or big to this struggle.

We live in a paradoxical world. Much debate on the radical left revolves around multitudes of discontented groups – sometimes lumped together as the 99%, sometimes rebranded as precariat – struggling against an abstract empire and its 1% rulers. Capitalism and class – once serving as a compass to navigate left politics through the apparently chaotic sees of everyday life – have turned into subjects of theoretical debate with little to no connection to political praxis.

At 12 years old were you making ramen noodles in a coffee maker with water you fetched from a public bathroom? I was. Have you ever lived in a camper year-round and used a random relative’s apartment as your mailing address? We did. Did you attend so many different elementary schools that you can only remember a quarter of their names? Welcome to my childhood.
