Support the occupation of Apollo house

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 12/22/2016 - 09:20

A high court judge yesterday granted an injunction that directs the Home Sweet Home occupiers of Apollo House to vacate the building by noon on January 11th. This means that the occupiers will remain in the building until after Christmas which is some good news but it still means that the State is quite willing to forcibly eject people from safe accommodation back out onto freezing streets or into unsafe, sub standard accommodation.

Video tour of previous Dublin eviction by injunction sites on the morning of Apollo House hearing

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 12/22/2016 - 09:03

This video was shot on the morning of the Apollo House injunction hearing at the High Court, 21st December.  As well as footage from outside the courts on our way there we had earlier visited the sites of other occupied buildings evicted in the last 20 months. We discovered all of them were still vacant and in most cases no visible work at all had been done on them.

Policía Comunitaria de Guerrero: una institución de los pueblos para la seguridad y justicia desde abajo

Anarkismo - Tue, 12/20/2016 - 16:39
La historia del Estado de Guerrero, en México, encuentra su hilo conductor en la violencia, en particular la violencia política. La actitud autoritaria y represiva de las élites locales, tratando de mantener las grandes desigualdades que atraviesan a la región, se ha enfrentado continuamente con los intentos organizativos rebeldes de las clases populares.

Apollo house receives eviction by injunction notice

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 12/20/2016 - 09:22

About an hour ago the Apollo house occupation received a finally crafted piece of legalistic bullshit designed to divide homelessness activists from the professional services on 'Health & Safety' grounds. Health & safety has become the go to excuse for pushing people onto the streets, when the Halston street (ex) prison was occupied over the summer we say the same 'concern' this time over the fact that the pigeon shit found in that building was a health and concern safety. As we observed then there is plenty of pigeon street on the cold, wet streets of Dublin but now its winter and those streets are very much colder.

RTE Drivetime's hostile click bait against Apollo House falls flat on its face

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 12/20/2016 - 08:35

RTE Drivetime engaged in some shameful clickbait trolling on Twitter last night to try and get a few more listeners. While they have congratulated posh schools for engaging in token sleep outs they decided to directly attack the occupation of Apollo house and its bringing into use as an emergency shelter for homeless people.

And boy did it fall on its face. Normally far far more people will like a Tweet than reply to it. In this case though 201 people have posted angry replies and only 19 liked it. A far stronger message though had already been sent out when the occupiers Home Sweet Home Eire page attracted over 27,000 followers in 6 days and over 1500 people have actually volunteered to help keep the shelter open. Likewise so many donations of materials were received that within a couple of days out had to be announced that there was no room for more.

Circa i fatti di Parma nella sede della RAF

Anarkismo - Mon, 12/19/2016 - 13:58
come riparare 4 crepe prima che qualcosa si rompa per sempre
Uno stupro è sempre e comunque un atto fascista, anche se chi lo commette si dichiara antifascista.
L’antifascismo non è soltanto un coro da urlare in “curva” o una toppa da cucire sul bomber. Essere antifascista è pensare e agire antifascista.
Chiunque stupra è un fascista e noi lo combattiamo in quanto fascista e stupratore.
Chiunque respira, si muove e parla dalla nostra parte della barricata, che si permette di avere atteggiamenti fascisti verrà combattuto in quanto fascista e stupido vacuo pezzo di merda.

Αλληλεγγύη στους αγώνες των κρατουμένων

Anarkismo - Mon, 12/19/2016 - 06:15
Σε χρόνο ενεστώτα, και όσο βαθαίνει η κρίση, η διαδικασία αυτή θα επιταχύνεται, δημιουργώντας μια στρατιά αποκλεισμένων και στερούμενων ως και τα στοιχειώδη, ενός κομματιού των από-τα-κάτω που επιβιώνει στα όρια της νομιμότητας, αναπαραγόμενος μέσω της επαιτείας ή της «παραβατικής» δραστηριότητας. Η υπαγωγή αυτού του κομματιού στον κύκλο της μαύρης οικονομίας είναι παράλληλα και η απαρχή της συσσώρευσης πολλών εξ αυτών στη συνθήκη του εγκλεισμού. Μια ματιά στην ιδιαίτερη ταξική διαστρωμάτωση της μαύρης οικονομίας φανερώνει πως, πέραν του συμπληρωματικού της χαρακτήρα ως προς την επίσημη, δεν διαφέρει σε τίποτα δομικά από την τελευταία: αναλώσιμοι-ευκαιριακοί εργάτες του εγκλήματος, μισθωτοί εργάτες των αφεντικών της μαύρης οικονομίας (πρεζέμπορων, νονών της νύχτας κλπ) στη βάση της πυραμίδας, βαρόνοι του εγκλήματος στην κορυφή της.
