On March 10th, the 49th anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan uprising, 300 monks demonstrated in Lhasa, Tibet, demanding the release of a number of imprisoned monks. In doing so they marked the beginning of a brief period of rioting by Tibetans against the rule of China, and the Chinese Communist Party, over Tibet. These riots were violently suppressed by the Chinese state.
The riots and their suppression has been widely publicised in the media and sparked a series of international protests aimed at undermining the Beijing 2008 Olympics. These protests occurred along the route of the international Olympic Torch Relay causing the torch to be extinguished 5 times in France alone. read full story / add a comment

Anarchism is today finally emerging out of its long held position as ‘the conscience of the workers’ movement’, as the eternal critic of Leninism and state centred politics. It long took the side of the working class against the Party, a position Lenin mocked when he wrote: “The mere presentation of the question—"dictatorship of the party or dictatorship of the class(1); dictatorship (party) of the leaders, or dictatorship (party) of the masses?"—testifies to most incredibly and hopelessly muddled contrast, in general, the dictatorship of the masses with a dictatorship of the leaders is ridiculously absurd, and stupid.”(2) Interestingly this was not written about anarchists, but rather about the position held by a Dutch-German Marxist tendency that was part of the Comintern. This tendency and others comprise what is known as ‘left-communism’. read full story / add a comment
irlanda / gran bretaña / la izquierda / opinión / análisis Thursday April 26, 2007 04:20 by Oisín Mac Giollamóir   image 1 image
James Connolly es probablemente la figura más importante en la historia de la izquierda irlandesa. Fue un dirigente de la IWW en los EEUU, pero en Irlanda es más conocido por su rol en la construcción del movimiento sindical irlandés, en su fase sindicalista, y por involucrar al cuerpo de defensa armada del sindicalismo, el Ejército de los Ciudadanos Irlandeses, en la insurrección nacionalista de 1916. Esto dejó tras de sí un legado que, a veces, puede ser reclamado no solamente por todos los partidos de izquierda de Irlanda, sino que además por los partidos nacionalistas Fianna Fáil y Sinn Fein. read full story / add a comment

Exploitation is an easy enough concept to grasp. It is essentially, when someone does not receive the full returns to their labour. That is when they do not receive the full benefit from their activities. read full story / add a comment

Mówi się o dwóch typach wolności- pozytywnej i negatywnej lub uogólniając, o istnieniu wolność od.. do. Uważam tą dychotomie za nieprawdziwa i mało znacząca. Wolność nie jest słowem opisującym dwojakość, wolność odnosi się tylko do jednego stanu rzeczy. read full story / add a comment

Precarity is a term synonymous with precariousness. It is perhaps best conceived as chronic insecurity. In recent times with the dismantling of the welfare state, the destruction of social security, workers’ existence is becoming more and more insecure. Precarity is a term that has been developed to describe these changes and the new form of working class existence that has developed due to them. read full story / add a comment

James Connolly is probably the single most important figure in the history of the Irish left. He was an organiser in the IWW in the USA but in Ireland is best known for his role in building the syndicalist phase of Irish union movement and for involving the armed defence body of that union, the Irish Citizens' Army in the 1916 nationalist insurrection. This left a legacy claimed at one time or another not only by all the Irish left parties but also by the nationalists of Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein. read full story / add a comment

It is often said that there are two types of liberty, positive liberty and negative liberty, or, roughly, 'freedom to...' and 'freedom from...' This, I believe, is a false and meaningless dichotomy read full story / add a comment
