A nova direita e o objetivo estratégico do impeachment quase inalcançável

Anarkismo - 1 hour 35 min ago
28 de agosto de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

"Há uma evidente confluência de ideias-guia entre os que defendem o impeachment nas ruas (os grupos neoliberais) e os políticos de tradição oligárquica no Congresso Nacional. É por isso que no atual momento o povo perde de todos os lados. Seja pela direita que é governo, com o tucano e Chicago Boy Joaquim Levy à frente da pasta do Ministério da Fazenda (o mais importante dos ministérios); seja pela Agenda Brasil e a “salvação” do governo implicando em abrir mão de quase tudo para manter o mandato; seja pela oposição política formal que sem nenhum pudor apresenta um projeto entreguista de exploração de petróleo como o do senador José Serra (PSDB-SP), e na ponta direita da política, o povo brasileiro corre sério risco se as ideias reacionárias expressas nas ruas de 16 de agosto se tornarem realidade em alguma proporção. Logo, há muito mais em jogo do que a continuidade institucional a qualquer custo", constata Bruno Lima Rocha, professor de ciência política e de relações internacionais.

Solidarity Times leaflet for August 29th Water Charges march

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Fri, 08/28/2015 - 10:42

We are the crisis of Irish Water! We do not want to have our water commodified, metered, and privatised. We know why this is happening – to increase the wealth and privilege of a global financial capitalist class and their political servants in the EU and Ireland.

We refuse to bow to them. We have gotten up before dawn to stop water meter installation on our streets. We have organised meetings in our communities. We have marched in our thousands and in our hundreds of thousands, shouting “Enough!” and “No way, we won’t pay!” and “Shove your meters up your arse!” We are not just angry, we are determined. 

We have forced this government into climb-downs and concessions, and we will do the same to the next one. We have decided to boycott Irish Water. We are encouraging our friends, co-workers and neighbours to do the same. Our community of communities is strong and growing stronger. We will keep on growing. When we break Irish Water, we will clear the rubble and grow real solidarity, real co-operation and real community in its place.

We are winning the water war

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Fri, 08/28/2015 - 09:46

Our upcoming show of strength in Dublin on August 29th is going to be an absolutely huge gathering of people from all over the island to deliver a wholehearted 'No' to the Fine Gael/Labour government's plans to establish water charges.

"People should pay for the water they use" is a refrain we often hear from some suited up professional liar in the Dáil but it totally ignores the fact that we already pay for our water to the tune of 1.2 billion euros per year. How else would water come from our taps when we open them?

"We need infrastructure investment!" these politicians say. Yes, we do. So shouldn't the government be directing hundreds of millions of taxpayer money into repair, upgrade and maintenance work instead of setting up a company that has caused more leaks than it has fixed? Remember, when there is a water leak, Irish Water don't fix it, your local county council does.

Refusing to Wait: Anarchism and Intersectionality - "Without justice there can be no love."--bell hooks

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Fri, 08/28/2015 - 06:06

Anarchism can learn a lot from the feminist movement. In many respects it already has. Anarcha-feminists have developed analyses of patriarchy that link it to the state form. We have learned from the slogan that "the personal is political" (e.g. men who espouse equality between all genders should treat the women in their lives with dignity and respect). We have learned that no revolutionary project can be complete while men systematically dominate and exploit women; that socialism is a rather empty goal--even if it is "stateless"--if men's domination of women is left intact.

The reality of homelessness, the fight for decent housing and lessons from The Bolt hostel

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 08/26/2015 - 19:51
Over the Last 12 months, particularly since Christmas the housing and homeless problem has deepened significantly. From last summer the amounts of families’ registering as homeless went from 264 to now, which are 531. The number of families that are registered as being in need of emergency accommodation is 792 adults with 1,112 dependent children. These statics were issued by the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive. This is a 100% rise within 12 months, but yet the state has not come out and said there is a crisis in housing.

Για τα γεγονότα στις Σκουριές στις 23-8-2015

Anarkismo - Wed, 08/26/2015 - 08:41
Για εμάς δεν χωράνε αυταπάτες σχετικά με τις προθέσεις των αισχρών πολιτικάντηδων του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ. Ο μοναδικός δρόμος για την αντιμετώπιση της γιγάντιας καταστροφής στον Κάκκαβο ξεκινάει από το κίνημα και τελειώνει σε αυτό. Την Κυριακή 23-8 υπήρξε προγραμματισμένη διαδήλωση από συντονιστικά καθώς και κατασκηνωτές πανευρωπαϊκού camping εναντίον της εξόρυξης, οι οποίοι διαδήλωσαν στο βουνό, ενώ αρκετοί από αυτούς συγκρούστηκαν με τα σκυλιά του κράτους και του Μπόμπολα που προστάτευαν το εργοτάξιο.

For how long can South African elites keep misleading the people?

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 08/26/2015 - 03:02
Those in power don’t want to confront the status quo of hatred against immigrants, or South Africa’s imperialist role in the region. They have a narrow set of interests: getting votes, accumulating wealth and power. However, the recent wave of attacks on immigrants and the ruptures of relations with other African countries – especially where South African corporations are operating – have touched the most delicate nerves of the established political powers, who have vowed to advance corporate interests in making profits.

Asylum seeker, homeless - We Rebel! We support decent housing for all!

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 08/25/2015 - 07:05

As of August 2015, this family is but one of 620 families in Ireland, including more than 1,300 children, who are homeless. The root of the current crisis of housing is the current crisis of capitalism.
