As the world watches events unfold in Egypt, the fates of other autocratic leaders in sub-Saharan Africa seem to have been relegated to fourth page news. However, it is worth considering the similarities and differences, particularly for Uganda where the incumbent President of 25 years will face re-election on Friday 18th February. ... read full story / add a comment

In different ways in different places (including most dramatically some places that until very recently were often taken for granted as among the most "docile" and "stable" countries around), people all over the world are rediscovering a principle at work in every revolutionary sequence: if we are willing to act in sufficient numbers and with sufficient determination, we already have all the power we need to devise and impose our own alternative. If we are determined to pursue it, we now have an opportunity to help change the world. ... read full story / add a comment

In 1961 Frantz Fanon wrote, from Tunisia, “The colonial world is a world cut into two....The town belonging to the colonized people, or at least the native town, the Negro village, the medina, the reservation, is a place of ill fame, peopled by men of evil repute. They are born there, it matters little where or how; they die there, it matters not how or where.” Fifty years later cities are still divided into separate zones for those who count and those who don't count. ... read full story / add a comment

The rebellion of the poor has been spreading from town to town, from squatter camp to squatter camp, since 2004. Last week it arrived in Grahamstown.
There is no third force, political party or communist academic behind our struggle. It is oppression at the hands of the African National Congress that has driven us into the rebellion of the poor. We are in rebellion because we are being forced to live without dignity, safety or hope. ... read full story / add a comment

The poor are steadily getting angrier and they are preparing for something. They have relatively little to lose, except the hope that drives their movements, informed predominantly by desire for justice for those who are systematically dehumanized in our country today. These movements include: Abahlali baseMjondolo (AbM), the Poor Peoples’ Alliance, the Landless Peoples’ Movement, the Western Cape Anti-Eviction Campaign, Mandela Park Backyarders and Sikhula Sonke. And, in my hometown— Grahamstown—the Unemployed Peoples’ Movement (UPM) and the Woman’s Social Forum (WSF) are represented. ... read full story / add a comment

The revolution underway in Egypt is being closely watched by Gaza's youth who see it as a source of empowerment and inspiration. It has stirred our sentiments and has moved us to take to the streets to show our solidarity with our neighbors in Egypt. We attempt to absorb every minute event so as to carry it through the years when we will be able to tell our children how proud we were to have lived through one of the greatest and most inspirational events in the history of the Arab world.

As I watched last night Hosni Mubarak make his (hopefully last) speech, I was very much reminded of the last speech of the Shah of Iran, Marcos of the Philippines, Bin Ali of Tunisia. They all claimed after so many years of torturing their own people that they now want to "reform". The US funded and supported the brutal Mubarak regime for over 30 years even as plenty of evidence from human rights organizations documented its abuse of its own citizens... ... read full story / add a comment

We are in the middle of a political earthquake in the Arab world and the ground has still not stopped shaking.

Han pasado siete meses desde el último incendio que consumió las casas de 176 familias en el barrio Altos de la Virgen, ubicado en las laderas de la Comuna 13 de Medellín, y aún no hay soluciones concertadas y definitivas para detener la trashumancia de quienes abandonaron sus casas en cenizas con las esperanzas puestas en los subsidios de vivienda que la Administración Municipal les prometió. Peor aún, basados en el argumento de que se encuentran ubicados en una zona de alto riesgo, la Alcaldía de Medellín pretende desalojar a otras 68 familias y reubicarlas en el sector de Pajarito, pese a los problemas de seguridad que ello le acarrearía a los nuevos habitantes.
Durante más de una década Altos de la Virgen ha sido el resguardo de 726 familias desplazadas por el conflicto social y armado que se ha vivido con crudeza en los municipios de San Carlos, Granada y San Luis. Su historia está atravesada por varios desalojos y dos incendios. ... read full story / add a comment

At the moment it is abundantly easy to sense everywhere in the Arab World elation at what appears to be one of greatest events in modern Arab history. A genuine popular revolution, spontaneous and apparently leaderless, yet sustained and remarkably determined, overthrew a system that by all accounts had been the most entrenched and secure in the whole region. The wider implications beyond Tunisia are hard to miss. Just as in the case of the Iranian revolution more than three decades ago, what is now happening in Tunisia is watched by all in the Arab world--as either a likely model of the transformation to come in their respective countries, or at least as a badly needed source of revolutionary inspiration. ... read full story / add a comment

The Abahlali baseMjondolo describe their politics as “a homemade politics that everyone can understand and find a home in”. They believe in politics that are shaped not by an outlined external ideology, but by the current and relevant experiences of its people. Politics derived from any singular prescribed theory, they argue, creates elitism and patronage. By building their political aims and beliefs directly and internally, they are more successful in addressing the realistic needs of its participants. It is very much a politics of the here and now. They have called for “a living communism” and are adamantly anti-capitalism, particularly in their beliefs that private land should be made public for housing. ... read full story / add a comment

Questa lettera si inserisce all'interno della campagna BDS, per il boicottaggio, disinvestimento e sanzioni nei confronti di Israele fino a che non garantirà il diritto al ritorno dei palestinesi alle loro abitazioni, la fine dell'occupazione militare e la fine della discriminazione dei palestinesi. La campagna nasce nel 2005 da un appello sottoscritto dalle principali 156 organizzazioni della società civile palestinese. Maggiori info qui: http://www.boicottaisraele.it/files/index.php
All'interno di questa chiamata nasce il PACBI, Palestinian campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, ed il PSCABI, Palestinian Students' Campaign for the Academic Boycott of Israel, ed è proprio da quest'ultimo gruppo di studenti che arriva la lettera.
La cosa importante è che LE PROSSIME SETTIMANE CI SARANNO ASSEMBLEE NELLE PRINCIPALI UNIVRSITÀ DI GAZA (la prima è stata l'altroieri) il cui scopo sarà quello di mettere in contatto studenti di Gaza con studenti fuori di Gaza. L'ideale sarebbe riuscire a fare dei COLLEGAMENTI (skype o simili) TRA LE UNIVERSITÀ GAZAWE E QUELLE ITALIANE. L'avvenimento è molto importante sia perchè gli studenti gazawi possono in questo modo sentire concretamente la solidarietà internazionale che perchè darebbe un punto di riferimento concreto nella striscia al boicottaggio accademico in Italia.
Sarebbe interessante, inoltre, fare un “database” con l'elenco dei rapporti tra le università italiane e quelle israeliane, prendendo i dati dalle diverse università. ... read full story / add a comment
