western asia / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Tuesday October 25, 2016 - 16:38 by Michael Skinner
7 October 2016 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan. Many Western leaders claimed the invasion, dubbed Operation Enduring Freedom, was a humanitarian intervention to liberate Afghans and especially Afghan women and girls from the brutal Taliban regime. However, the evidence demonstrates the results have been anything but humane or liberating.

The people truly liberated by the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan are the wealthy investors in the military-industrial complex and those betting on successfully extracting Afghan resources and developing the infrastructure of the New Silk Road. ... read full story / add a comment

What is the Kurdistan Anarchist Forum and who is behind it?
The Kurdistan Anarchist Forum is an internet forum for discussions, debate and analysis among Libertarians & Anarchists on topical subjects, matters and questions against capitalism. It is a place to consider and criticise past experiences & methods of the Socialist movement that have failed, in an attempt to find alternatives. It is an open door for any libertarian’s voice, it is a voice of those who believe in Freedom, equality and social justice. In short, the Kurdistan Anarchist Forum (KAF) is a “bridge to reach and to get closer to all libertarian individuals and groups” .

There is no such thing as “Kurdish Anarchism”, no more than there is such a thing as Russian, Spanish or French Anarchism. However, what there can be is a free association of Anarchists people originating from the same region, like Kurdistan, and seeking to militate for their ideals among the population they originate from. That is what KAF is: a Federation of Anarchists who happen to be Kurds and militate for Anarchism among Kurds as well as humankind as a whole. [Kurdî] [کوردی ] ... read full story / add a comment

Il 13 marzo 2008, il parlamento del Canada votò il prolungamento della sua “missione” militare in Afghanistan fino al luglio  2011. La mozione presentata dal governo conservatore di minoranza venne votata anche dall’opposizione liberale. I guerrafondai avevano correttamente calcolato che se si fosse stabilita una data per il ritiro delle truppe, si sarebbe indebolita l’opposizione alla guerra che stava montando nell’opinione pubblica e si sarebbe guadagnato tempo per una partecipazione continuativa del Canada. Da allora, la situazione politica e militare in Afghanistan non ha fatto che peggiorare per le forze di occupazione ed i dirigenti politici stanno ora facendo balenare proposte per prorogare la data del ritiro per una missione militare che già costituisce una grave violazione della sovranità nazionale e dei diritti umani del popolo afgano.

On March 13, 2008, Canada's Parliament voted to extend the country's military “mission” in Afghanistan to July 2011. The motion by the minority Conservative government was supported by the opposition Liberals. The warmakers correctly estimated that fixing an exit date would deflect mounting opposition to the war among the Canadian public and buy time for Canada's continued participation. Since then, the political and military situation in Afghanistan has continued to deteriorate for the occupying forces, and leading politicians are now floating proposals to extend Canada's claimed exit date for a military mission that already constitutes a gross violation of the national sovereignty and human rights of the Afghan people.

asie de l'ouest / luttes en milieu de travail / presse non anarchiste Thursday January 21, 2010 - 15:54 by Conseil Ad Hoc des Ouvriers de l’Acier d’Ispahan
La Compagnie de l’Acier d’Ispahan (Isfahan Steel Company, ISC) est une des plus grande entreprise industrielle d’Iran. Pourtant, malgré de nombreux efforts petits et grands des travailleurs pendant des années pour améliorer leurs conditions de travail, ils ont été fortement privés du droit d’avoir une organisation dirigée par les travailleurs eux-mêmes pour défendre leurs droits et leurs justes revendications.

Aussi, face à un avenir incertain et à la dégradation générale des conditions de travail et compte-tenu du poids écrasant de la crise économique sur les épaules des travailleurs, nous, groupe d’ouvrier d’ISC, avons décidé de former le « Conseil Ad Hoc des Ouvriers de l’Acier d’Ispahan », dont la mission est d’unifier les rangs ouvriers et de défendre leurs droits.

De toute évidence, comme le Conseil a commencé son travail dans les conditions de l’activité clandestine et que ses membres, par nécessité, n’ont pas été publiquement élus par les travailleurs, il a décidé de se qualifier lui-même d’Ad Hoc. Cependant, le Conseil s’engage à mettre en place une élection libre et ouverte impliquant l’ensemble des salarié dès que les conditions permettront une activité au grand jour. Jusqu’à ce jour, le Conseil, en tant que seul représentant existant des travailleurs d’ISC, ne ménagera pas ses efforts pour défendre les droits de chacun et de tous les travailleurs, tout en informant tout le monde de ses décisions avec des communiqués périodiques. ... read full story / add a comment
western asia / workplace struggles / non-anarchist press Thursday January 21, 2010 - 15:50 by Ad Hoc Council of the Isfahan Steel Workers
The Isfahan Steel Company (ISC) has been one of the largest industrial enterprises in all Iran. Nevertheless, despite many small and large efforts by workers throughout the years to improve their working condition, they have been strenuously deprived of the right to have a workers-led organization of their own to defend their rights and just demands.

In this connection, faced with an uncertain future and generally worsening conditions, and mindful of the crushing weight of the economic crisis on the workers’ shoulders, we, a group of ISC workers, have decided to form the “Ad Hoc Council of the Isfahan Steel Workers”,whose mission it is to unify the workers’ ranks and defend their rights.

Clearly, since the Council has commenced its work under conditions of underground activity and its members are by necessity not openly elected by the rank and file, it has decided to qualify itself as ad hoc. However, the Council pledges to have an open and free election encompassing the entire labor force the moment conditions allow for open activity. Up until that day, the Council, as the only existing representative of the ISC labor, will spare no effort to defend each and every worker’s right, while keeping everyone informed of its deliberations with periodic statements. ... read full story / add a comment

The revolution that has started since June 2009 is the outburst of the repressed anger of the people against the criminal Islamic regime of Iran. This is a revolution for liberation from a corrupt system, for smashing a machine of murder, plunder, ignorance and lies which has been wrecking the lives of the people for thirty years. This revolution will not stop until it has crushed the entire inhuman system in power. ... read full story / add a comment

La crisis tras la publicación de los resultados de las presidenciales del 12 de junio es en realidad un juego de espejos que oculta una pugna descarnada en la cúspide del poder en la República Islámica. Cada actor, local o extranjero, mueve sus fichas mientras el pueblo iraní paga su precio en sangre y en una desestabilización que tendrá sus consecuencias, en Irán y en el ámbito internacional.
