We caught up with Wilder Marcano, director of the network of Comunas in Caracas, on the morning of June 18, 2010. He talked with us just before addressing a crowd of a few hundred representatives of different comunas from around the capital who had gathered in the offices of the Ministry of Popular Power for the Communes and Social Welfare to discuss a whole series of issues related to building popular power from below in the poorest barrios. ... read full story / add a comment

We met with Antenea Jimenez, a former militant with the student movement who is now working with a national network of activists who are trying to build and strengthen the comunas. The comunas are community organizations promoted since 2006 by the Chávez government as a way to consolidate a new form of state based upon production at the local level. She told us about the important advances in the process, as well as the significant challenges that remain in the struggle to build a new form of popular power from below. ... read full story / add a comment

Jacob Zuma visited Balfour about two weeks ago, for the second time, where there were some of the most militant service delivery protest last year in July 2009 and even this year. The first time when he was in Balfour, he said he was there to investigate for himself what is happening. This time around, when he was there he said he is there also to investigate. So, for how long will Jacob Zuma be investigating rather than taking an action? It makes me wonder whether he was not trying to cool the people of Balfour and others that he visited so that service delivery protests don’t erupt. ... read full story / add a comment

Last week Jacob Zuma visited the Sweetwaters shack settlement near Orange Farm in Johannesburg. He informed the nation that his shock at seeing human beings living like pigs had almost reduced him to tears. He also visited the Siyathemba settlement in Balfour where he, like a typical bullying ward councillor, berated angry residents for asking the questions that mattered. ... read full story / add a comment
région sud de l'afrique / luttes dans la communauté / presse non anarchiste Wednesday May 26, 2010 - 15:05 by Bongani Xezwi
Protea du Sud est l'un de ces « quartiers informels » (bidonville) qui n'a pas encore bénéficié au cours des 16 dernières années de la démocratie. À l'heure actuelle, les gens de Protea-sud vivent toujours sans aucun service (eau, électricité et sanitaires). Hier, la communauté qui vit dans des maisons à loyer modéré a décidé de débrancher l'électricité que les gens des habitations informelles avaient connecté dans leurs baraques en tôle. Ils sont allés dans le quartier pour débrancher et battre les gens qui avaient connecté l'électricité dans leurs baraques. En conséquence, deux personnes ont reçu des coups de feu et une est décédée sur place tandis que l'autre a été transportée d’urgence à l'hôpital. ... read full story / add a comment

Protea South is one of the informal settlements that has not yet benefited in the last 16 years of democracy. As it stands, people in Protea South are still living without services (water, electricity and toilets). Yesterday the community that lives in the bond houses decided to disconnect the electricity that the people from the informal settlement connected into their tin shacks. They went around disconnecting and beating people who connected the electricity within their shacks. As a result, two people were shot and one died on the spot while the other one was rushed to hospital. ... read full story / add a comment

There is speculation that the recent bombing of a bank in Canada might have been a false flag operation carried out by agent provocateurs to blame anarchists and give police a reason to further ramp up security. In many ways, the whole security operations for the G8/G20 summits are a sideshow designed to serve as a distraction. Any violence and mayhem before or during the meetings plays right into the globalists hands and will be used to justify a police state crackdown.

Em setembro de 2009, no entanto, alguns líderes foram atacados no assentamento Kennedy Road por um grupo armado que entoava lemas étnicos. A polícia se negou a ajudar o AbM e somente estava presente para desarmar a resistência espontânea à multidão. Pessoas morreram durante a tentativa de defesa contra o grupo e as casas de mais de trinta líderes da AbM foram destruídas e saqueadas depois que os dirigentes locais do partido que está no poder tomaram o controle do assentamento. Os dirigentes partidários, tanto na cidade como na província, atacaram o movimento com uma linguagem extremamente forte nos dias posteriores ao ataque, condenado-o por sua exigência perante o governo para que o mesmo declarasse inconstitucional a Lei de Assentamentos Precários e acusando-o de se opor ao desenvolvimento. Afirmou-se aos oficiais da polícia e do estado, bem como aos repórteres, que as ONGs estrangeiras financiavam o movimento com o objetivo de deter o desenvolvimento para que, deste modo, os africanos continuassem pobres e mantivessem seu acesso ao financiamento.

The Abahlali baseMjondolo commune in the Kennedy Road squatter camp was smashed late last year when the movement was attacked by an ethic militia organised by the local party structures and backed by the police and intelligence agencies. The movement has regrouped and recently organised a major protest on Jacob Zuma in downtown Durban despite severe intimidation. But the Kennedy Road settlement remains under ANC control and violent intimidation continues. ... read full story / add a comment

Auf unsere Bewegung wurde ein Überraschungsangriff durchgeführt, der spontane Widerstand wurde von der Polizei gebrochen, unser Büro wurde zerstört, hunderte unserer Mitglieder und UnterstützerInnen aus Kennedy Road verjagt, dreizehn unserer GenossInnen verhaftet und illegal in Haft behalten, und uns wurde verboten, uns offen in der Siedlung zu organisieren, in der unsere Bewegung gegründet wurde. ... read full story / add a comment
