In Istanbul, 2021 began with hundreds of students initiating a series of protests on the campus of Boǧaziçi University. They were demonstrating against President Recep Tayyip Erdoǧan’s January 1 appointment of a new rector via presidential decree. Melih Bulu, a business management Ph.D. and longtime Justice and Development Party (AKP) activist, was the first rector selected from outside the university since a military coup in 1980. Students chanted “Melih Bulu is not our rector” and “We don’t want a state-appointed rector.” (The song “Master of Puppets” could also be heard after Bulu gave an interview in which he claimed to be a regular guy who likes Metallica.) read full story / add a comment

Η απειλή της θανατικής ποινης με την garotte και η εικοσαετής, τελικά, ποινή του, επέστησαν τη διεθνή προσοχή στην αντίσταση στο καθεστώς του Φράνκο. Στη φυλακή ο Christie σχημάτισε μόνιμες φιλίες με αναρχικούς μαχητές της δικής του αλλά και παλαιότερων γενεών. Επέστρεψε από την Ισπανία το 1967, μεγαλύτερος και σοφότερος, αλλά εξίσου αποφασισμένος να συνεχίσει τον αγώνα και να χρησιμοποιήσει τη φήμη του για να βοηθήσει τους συντρόφους που άφησε πίσω του. read full story / add a comment

On August 5, India’s Hindu nationalist government unilaterally revoked the autonomy of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, while flooding the region with troops, imposing a curfew, and shutting down all communications. The state is to be broken in two, with the eastern portion (Ladakh) under direct rule by New Delhi. read full story / add a comment

On the day President Trump is inaugurated, thousands of writers in the United States will express their indignation. "In order for us to heal and move forward...", say Writers Resist, "we wish to bypass direct political discourse, in favour of an inspired focus on the future, and how we, as writers, can be a unifying force for the protection of democracy." read full story / add a comment

The just-released Oxfam Davos report An Economy For the 1% which the mass media have ignored arrestingly shows that 62 individuals (388 in 2010) now own more wealth than 50 per cent of the world's population. More shockingly, it reports from its uncontested public sources that this share of wealth by half of the world's people has collapsed by over 40 per cent in just the last five years. read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / anarchist movement / other libertarian press Thursday July 30, 2015 11:15 by John Mulligan
There are preliminary ideas about anarchism and the difficulty it faces. The short piece of writing is sombre in places but ends on a positive note. It is an attempt to separate anarchism from other ideologies. 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.”

For some years now the Kurdish movement has been moving in the direction of libertarian ideas. While not an anarchist movement, this move is a sign that anarchist ideas of freedom and equality through solidarity, our ideas of horizontality and radical direct democracy and our radical critique against the State are not only valid and strong, but are also necessary for movements in order to break away from the authoritarian legacy within the left. It is our duty to express our solidarity with Rojava and the Kurdish movement, because they represent hope in this region and because they are the oppressed fighting the oppressors. Real struggles are never perfect but they carry diverse degrees of potential to bring about a free society. Expressing our solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Rojava means we understand our role is to continue developing the core tenets of our ideas in order to inspire revolutions and revolutionaries all over the world. - Anarkismo.net Editorial Group [Italiano] [Ελληνικά] [Castellano] [Français] read full story / add a comment

La otra noche vi 1984, de George Orwell, representada en los escenarios de Londres. Pese a que pide a gritos una interpretación contemporánea, las advertencias de Orwell sobre el futuro se presentaron como una obra perteneciente a un periodo remoto e inofensivo. Parecía como si Edward Snowden nunca hubiera hecho públicas sus revelaciones, el Gran Hermano no fuera hoy un espía digital y el propio Orwell nunca hubiera dicho aquello de «para dejarse corromper por el totalitarismo no hace falta vivir en un país totalitario». read full story / add a comment

The other night, I saw George Orwells's '1984' performed on the London stage. Although crying out for a contemporary interpretation, Orwell's warning about the future was presented as a period piece: remote, unthreatening, almost reassuring. It was as if Edward Snowden had revealed nothing, Big Brother was not now a digital eavesdropper and Orwell himself had never said, "To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country." read full story / add a comment

north america / mexico / repression / prisoners / news report Thursday June 28, 2012 09:10 by John Jacobsen   image 1 image
Seattle City attorneys officially threw down the gauntlet with the Department of Justice last week, filing court documents which challenged the “reliability and trustworthiness” of a recent DOJ report on the Seattle Police. The DOJ report, which “finds a pattern or practice of constitutional violations regarding the use of force… as well as serious concerns about biased policing,” has been offered as evidence in an ongoing court case brought by Martin Monetti Jr. against the City of Seattle.Monetti, a Latino man, had his head stomped into the pavement after being told by then-Detective Shandy Cobane that he would “beat the [expletive] Mexican piss out of you, homie.”
This is just the latest move by Mayor Mike McGinn and the Seattle Police Department in their escalating strategy of resistance to the Department of Justice, who have repeatedly called for reform of the city’s embattled police department. read full story / add a comment

I sindacati dei lavoratori pubblici dello Stato dell'Arizona sono stati colti di sorpresa questa settimana dalla notizia secondo cui lo Stato controllato dai senatori repubblicani starebbe per approvare una serie di leggi, che insieme ad altre disposizioni, dovrebbero vietare del tutto ai sindacati di prendere parte a qualsiasi trattativa che riguardi le condizioni di lavoro di un impiegato dello Stato, della Contea o del Comune.
