After the conviction and sentencing of two ANC councillors for the murder of an Abahlali baseMjondolo activist in May 2016 there was a marked decline in the repression faced by Abahlali baseMjondolo. But the recent shooting of an activist in the Bhambayi land occupation seems to mark a return to repression.

We wish to make it clear that should our local council chairperson in Bhambayi, Blessing Nyuswa, come to any harm we will hold the ANC accountable. Abahlali baseMjondolo

Ante la Brutal Represión a los Municipales de Cachoerinha

Anarkismo - Fri, 03/31/2017 - 04:08
Hoy, 30 de marzo de 2017, luego de 25 días de huelga, con varios trabajadores en huelga de hambre, en reclamo para que no se aprobara en la Cámara de Vereadores (ediles) la rebaja del monto por vale de alimentación y escalonamiento de los salarios, la Brigada Militar reprimió con dureza la movilización de los trabajadores municipales. Balas de gomas, golpes con todo tipo de objetos y gases lacrimógenos fue la respuesta de Miki Breier (PSB) -Prefecto de Cachoerinha- y la Policía Militar a los justos reclamos de los trabajadores y trabajadoras.

Welfare, alternanza scuola/lavoro, università

Anarkismo - Thu, 03/30/2017 - 17:29
dare una risposta ai bisogni fondamentali emergenti nei territori di riferimento,valorizzando al contempo le necessità formative degli studenti stessi.
La privatizzazione di sanità e istruzione, ossia il passaggio dalla prospettiva della relazione utente-servizio a quella cliente-prestazione (prodotto), è stata anticipata nei decenni precedenti da un primo passaggio, che ha portato dall'originaria relazione cittadino-diritto a quella di utente-servizio.
Da lì il passo è stato breve per arrivare alla frattura della relazione fra la persona e il suo bisogno, che sta alla base di tutto il discorso del welfare.

Three futures: Barbarism, UBI Warehousing or Anarchism

Our global society is broken. Donald Trump & Brexit are symptoms along with the rise of the far right elsewhere in Europe. In an old pattern, fundamental economic crisis often results in society becoming very much more brutal for most people.  In the age of nuclear weapons this current crisis could be our last.  And with a somewhat longer countdown to disaster we are also facing climate catastrophe.

Thousands take part in pro-choice #Strike4Repeal in Ireland

Main bridge in Dublin blocked for two hours
International Womens Day in Ireland saw thousands take to the streets in a sequence of 'in work time' protests under the heading 'Strike4Repeal'. Abortion is illegal in almost all circumstances and the protests were an attempt by pro-choice activists to forced the government to stop delaying a referendum to repeal the anti-choice 8th Amendment placed in the Irish constitution in 1983. Workers Solidarity Movement members took part in organising the day and in the aftermath produced a number of articles and videos detailing what happened.

Colombia: ni siquiera ha llegado la paz de los cementerios

Anarkismo - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 12:12
Los muertos también se han convertido en un campo de batalla en Colombia. Cuanto tengamos, efectivamente, paz en los cementerios, es cuando la paz realmente termine de materializarse en Colombia. Cuando el cuerpo de Trofijo pueda encontrar un lugar definitivo de descanso, sin el temor de que paramilitares o el propio ejército lo exhumen para jugar fútbol con su cráneo, es cuando sabremos que realmente estamos en paz. Cuando los familiares puedan sacar a los guerrilleros que quedaron enterrados en cementerios escondidos en la selva y volverlos a sus veredas para despedirse humanamente de ellos.

Greece: NGO Control Over Refugees

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 03/29/2017 - 05:52
The arrest on the 11th of March occurred outside the migrant housing squat (Alkiviadou) which was evicted by the police just two days later. The police still arrested these four comrades even after they were informed that the group was acting in defence of neighbourhood squats, thus the arrest was explicitly political. The Police are thus responsible for making squats more vulnerable to fascist attacks, which is in line with the state strategy to destroy self-organized migrant housing communities.

Three futures: Barbarism, UBI Warehousing or Anarchism

Anarchist Writers - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 10:50

Our global society is broken. Donald Trump & Brexit are symptoms along with the rise of the far right elsewhere in Europe. In an old pattern, fundamental economic crisis often results in society becoming very much more brutal for most people.  In the age of nuclear weapons this current crisis could be our last.  And with a somewhat longer countdown to disaster we are also facing climate catastrophe.

 

The crisis is fundamental rather than temporary because there are two underlying factors that are irreversible.  The first is the end of the era where the environmental costs of growth could be mostly discounted in the belief that dilution would neutralise pollution.  For much of the industrial revolution the poisonous effluent dumped into the ecosystem had only local severe effects with the vast oceans and atmosphere diluting the pollutants enough that global effects were minor.  This is no longer the case with climate change being the most talked about of several examples where the pollution generated by growth can no longer be absorbed without serious global consequences.
