Colombia: La “reparación a las víctimas” como un nuevo mecanismo de despojo

Anarkismo - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 17:46
El Estado colombiano ha tenido, históricamente, dos mecanismos principales para despojar al campesinado de sus tierras: el crédito extorsivo y la violencia, tanto oficial como paraoficial. Ahora, el gobierno capitaneado por Juan Manuel Santos ha agregado un nuevo mecanismo a este repertorio. Ese mecanismo es la utilización perversa de la legislación sobre las víctimas.

Why the media is biased - understanding the propaganda model

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 10:52

When the Watergate Scandal brought down the Nixon Government in the States in the mid-70s, it was heralded as one of the finest examples of media power in modern times. Nixon's fall from grace, along with the story of corruption in high places, was the stuff of drama. In no time, the journalists at the centre of the Watergate exposé - Bernstein and Woodward - became celebrities. They went on to win Pulitzer Prizes for their journalistic endeavours and even became the subject of a Hollywood touch-up in All The President's Men.

Ever since, Watergate has acted as a sort of beacon. No single news story did as much for the prestige of the media or the profession of journalism. No other single news-story seems to have offered such overwhelming evidence that under capitalism "the press is free". For a newspaper to be able to have the power and freedom to bring down a US President of Nixon's stature - well, what more can you say?

Lack of media coverage of August 29 Water charges march - video

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 06:48

The print media on Sunday failed to give any prominence to the huge water charges demonstration that had filled O'Connell street the day before. This view shot from 3 locations in the rally gives an idea of the vast numbers, yet as shown the front pages of the main Sunday paper failed to mention it.

Building autonomy in Turkey and Kurdistan: an interview with Revolutionary Anarchist Action

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 06:41
In May this year, Corporate Watch researchers travelled to Turkey and Kurdistan to investigate the companies supplying military equipment to the Turkish police and army. We talked to a range of groups from a variety of different movements and campaigns

Below is the transcript of our interview with three members of the anarchist group Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (DAF, or Revolutionary Anarchist Action) in Istanbul during May 2015. DAF are involved in solidarity with the Kurdish struggle, the Rojava revolution and against ISIS' attack on Kobane, and have taken action against Turkish state repression and corporate abuse. They are attempting to establish alternatives to the current system through self-organisation, mutual aid and co-operatives.

The interview was carried out in the run-up to the Turkish elections, and touches on the election campaign by the HDP, the pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party. Soon after the interview took place, the HDP passed the threshold of 10% of the total vote needed to enter the Turkish parliament.

The DAF members – who all preferred to remain anonymous – began the interview by talking about the history of anarchism in the region:

Brasil- La nueva derecha y el objetivo estratégico imposible de tumbar la pres

Anarkismo - Mon, 08/31/2015 - 16:34
31 de agosto de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

Cuando escribí el último análisis de coyuntura (los produzco semanalmente para los medios alternativos brasileños), me referí al hecho de que la derecha post-moderna, salga a las calles pidiendo un recurso casi inalcanzable. El debate acerca de una salida presidencial, tiene más repercusión en los círculos de la nueva derecha, que las condiciones concretas para su realización.

Italia: c'è vita a sinistra

Anarkismo - Mon, 08/31/2015 - 10:48
dialogo tra il Capitano Kirk ed il Signor Spock
Ma c'è vita a sinistra se questa vive sta nel conflitto sociale diffuso e reticolare, sistematico e costante, in grado di esprimere crescente radicalità dal basso, indirizzata verso la riappropriazione e l'autogestione di risorse comuni, patrimoniali e ambientali, culturali ed economiche, che sa proporsi come elemento esogeno di rottura democratica e libertaria di netto segno anticapitalista, nei territori e nel paese.

Για την πολιτική συγκυρία

Ανακοίνωση αναρχικών συλλογικοτήτων-ατόμων
Οι μάσκες έπεσαν. Η κυβερνώσα αριστερά έχει δείξει πέρα κάθε αμφισβήτησης, το εξουσιαστικό και καταπιεστικό της πρόσωπο. Το προηγούμενο διάστημα, εκμεταλλευόμενη τα κινήματα, έσπειρε αυταπάτες στους καταπιεσμένους για λύση μέσω της ανάθεσης˙ επιχείρησε την ανανέωση της κοινωνικής νομιμοποίησης στο πολιτικό προσωπικό και τους «δημοκρατικούς θεσμούς» και αποπειράθηκε να εμπλέξει τους εκμεταλλευόμενους στο σχέδιο της υποτιθέμενης λύτρωσης τους μέσα από τον μεσσιανισμό.

Italia: manifestazione in appoggio alla resistenza curda

Anarkismo - Mon, 08/31/2015 - 03:12
Trieste, sabato 12 settembre in Piazza della Borsa, ore 16.00
Nella Rojava la lotta per l'indipendenza si è sviluppata in una rivoluzione sociale. Attraverso quello che i Kurdi chiamano Confederalismo Democratico, che ha una chiara dimensione libertaria, femminista ed ecologista, non si vuole creare un nuovo Stato, ma una rete di comunità che si autogovernano nel pieno rispetto di tutte le popolazioni che vivono o vogliono vivere nel territorio.

Nuova emigrazione e vecchio fatalismo

Anarkismo - Sun, 08/30/2015 - 14:06
La nuova emigrazione dei giovani dall'Irpinia, tra le varie conseguenze, ha comportato una desertificazione del territorio, ma soprattutto l'abbandono di ogni speranza di cambiamento e, dunque, il sedimentarsi di una mentalità sempre più fatalistica...

A nova direita e o objetivo estratégico do impeachment quase inalcançável

Anarkismo - Sat, 08/29/2015 - 21:53
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.
