mashriq / arabia / iraq / miscellaneous / non-anarchist press Thursday March 19, 2015 23:31 byAdam Hanieh
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

“One must know how to employ the kairos [right or opportune moment] of one's forces at the right moment.
It is easy to only lose a little, if one always keeps foremost in the mind the idea that unity is never the trick, but the game.”

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
greece / turkey / cyprus / economy / non-anarchist press Friday February 20, 2015 20:22 byLarry Elliot
Athens’ decision to accept a eurozone loan extension shows the troika did not really want to negotiate with Syriza - it wanted capitulation. read full story / add a comment
greece / turkey / cyprus / the left / non-anarchist press Wednesday February 18, 2015 20:41 bySakis Gekas
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 byErnest 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
francia / bélgica / luxemburgo / imperialismo / guerra / non-anarchist press Thursday January 15, 2015 17:19 byMartín
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
france / belgium / luxemburg / migration / racism / non-anarchist press Thursday January 08, 2015 19:23 byJacob Canfield
On Wednesday morning, the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was attacked by three masked gunmen, armed with kalashnikovs, who stormed the building and killed ten of its staff and two police officers. 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

Many journalists at the offices of Charlie Hebdo have been murdered by bampots brandishing what appear to be machine guns at close range. It is too soon to have a complete, coherent political narrative of these killings. All one can have at this point are the correct but platitudinous points about there being no justification for this, that all attacks on journalists are abhorrent, that freedom of speech must be defended to the last drop of blood, and so on. If you really need that sermon, you’re in the wrong place. read full story / add a comment

The country’s largest trade union federation, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), has expelled the National Union of Metalworkers’ of South Africa (Numsa), for not supporting the African National Congress (ANC). Anyone in South Africa who doesn’t know this news must have been living under a rock for the past week.

El Presidente emplea de mil modos la bandera de la solución civilizada al conflicto armado. Manifiesta su devoción por figurar en la historia como el hombre que consiguió la paz. Riñe incluso con los declarados defensores de la solución militar. Pacta con la insurgencia una Agenda sobre la cual realizar conversaciones definitivas. Se ufana de los avances alcanzados y habla de perseverar. Hasta promociona en el exterior el posconflicto. read full story / add a comment
