Banner action against Oslo Energy Forum

Anarkismo (en) - 2 hours 4 min ago
Today we, a group of autonomous environmental activists, hung a 40 square metre banner from the Holmenkollen ski jump to protest the Oslo Energy Forum. The forum is being held at Scandic Holmenkollen Hotel, which is located just a couple of hundred metres from the ski jump. There are two primary reasons for why we chose to have our banner action at this location: firstly, because it is a national landmark that lies in close proximity to the place where the forum is held, and secondly, because winter sports like skiing will be something only found in history books if the fossil fuel industry is allowed to continue at its current levels of pollution.

Pressemelding om Oslo Energy Forum

Anarkismo - 2 hours 8 min ago
Vi, en gruppe autonome miljøaktivister, har i dag festet et ca 40 kvm. stort banner til Holmenkollbakken for å protestere mot Oslo Energy Forum, som avholdes et stenkast unna hoppanlegget på Scandic Holmenkollen hotell. Vi valgte Holmenkollbakken ikke bare fordi det er et kjent landemerke som vil gi budskapet vårt den nødvendige oppmerksomheten, men også fordi skisporten er noe av det vi bare kan glemme i framtiden hvis vi lar fossilindustrien fortsette å ødelegge kloden vår.

Kobane: seconda fase, quella della resistenza e della ricostruzione

Anarkismo - 3 hours 29 min ago
Dopo 134 giorni di fiera resistenza e di strenua difesa, le donne e gli uomini combattenti di Kobane sono riusciti finalmente a sconfiggere il feroce attacco di ISIS grazie anche al sostegno ricevuto da milioni di persone in tutto il mondo. Non è solo una sconfitta per l'ISIS e per il suo sogno di instaurare un Califfato Islamico. Ma si tratta anche della vanificazione del sogno dell'alleato dell'ISIS, il governo turco, di far risorgere l'impero ottomano.

L'attacco a Kobane è stato una guerra per procura portato dall'ISIS in nome dei regimi della regione contro il coraggio del popolo di Kobane e contro l'Autonomia Democratica. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27950]

Bil'in - 10 anni di lotta unitaria e persistente

Anarkismo - 4 hours 3 min ago
Gli abitanti del villaggio palestinese di Bil'in lottano da 10 anni contro la costruzione del muro della separazione ed il conseguente esproprio delle loro terre. E' stata da subito una lotta non-violenta, portata avanti insieme ad attivisti ebreo-israeliani ed internazionali, che ha influenzato dozzine di altre lotte similari in tutta la Cisgiordania. In questo contributo, l'anarchico israeliano Ilan Shalif spiega qual è il significato della resistenza di Bil'in e vi ripercorre la sua esperienza personale. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27935]

Making anarchist organisations work - Dunbar’s number, administration and care

Anarchist Writers - 4 hours 45 min ago

There is a strong tendency, almost a rule, that anarchist groups tend to fall apart once they have more than 20-30 members in any city or 50 to 60 overall. Or at the very least an organisation that once felt like it worked very well becomes one that feels sluggish and starts requiring too much effort to achieve limited results in the longer term. There are exceptions which mean this is not inevitable but why does this happen and more importantly how can we avoid it in our organising?

The cause may be simply a limitation of our brains and in particular the number of complex inter relationships between people we can track. Or, more correctly, a failure to acknowledge that this limit means that informality will fail and formal administration is more and more necessary as group size rises.  A lesson that is not just relevent to anarchist but to all attempts at horizontal organisation.

Οι παρούσες συνθήκες – άλλες νέες, και άλλες όχι τόσο νέες – σε επίπεδο πολιτικής και οικονομικής πραγματικότητας αλλά και κυρίαρχων ιδεολογημάτων επιβάλλουν μια συμπύκνωση της μέχρι τώρα ανάγνωσής της, στην κατεύθυνση της περιφρούρησης και της ανασυγκρότησης του κοινωνικού και ταξικού κινήματος.

Uma resposta para as críticas senderistas/maoístas e sua campanha de desinformação sobre Abdullah Ocallan

Anarkismo - 17 hours 46 min ago
Bruno Lima Rocha

Antes de iniciar cabe uma reflexão. Entendo que este portal e os perfis que o espelham em redes sociais não formam necessariamente um espaço apropriado para o debate de tipo corrente política. E, tampouco o tipo de leitor@s que temos não é exclusivamente militante e nem de esquerda engajado. Talvez a virtude deste portal (e perfis) seja justamente esta, dar um tratamento analítico e linguagem jornalística para temas de fundos bem ásperos.

Workers self management at occupied Greek Radio-Television (ERT)

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 11:03

The capitalist crisis saw the closure of Greek Radio-Television (ERT) but workers not only resisted they took ERT into collective self management and continued broadcasting. 21 months after its closure the striking workers still ran 17 radio stations (15 regional, two national) and a single TV channel (ET3).

The translation of the texts below has been sent to us by Thanasis, a worker at the ERT and outline how the workers restructured ERT and what they want Syriza to respect if funding is returned.

Thanasis writes " Actually, and in simple words, they fired us but we never left the building and of course we never took an  advance to earn money (publicity etc) respecting the fact that all these buldings and technical stuff belong to the Greek people.  The new government after having recognized our struggle decided to re-open the Public Radio-television. Lets hope they will also incorporate our ideas, those we fought for over the last 2 years. What you will read is not a dream. Is what we already do everyday and we simply propose it for the future.

A basic introduction to Anarcha Feminism?

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 08:32

“Women of all classes, races, and life circumstances have been on the receiving end of domination too long to want to exchange one set of masters for another.” - Carol Ehrlich

Anarchism is the idea that no one is more qualified than what you are to determine your own life and that you should have self/personal determination. It is the belief that power structures are oppressive and that only with the abolition of power will we be free. There is no end goal as there will always be power dynamics in our lives that need to be addressed and abolished in order to arrive at a society that is coercion free, community based and operating on the principles of direct democracy. Anarcha-feminism is the application of these anarchist policies to the Black Feminist theory of intersectionality.

Hundreds of thousands of people in this small country have been protesting against this policy and the government has encountered a campaign of civil disobedience without precedent, in which the majority of the population refuse to pay. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27910]

Kobane’s Second Phase: Resistance and Necessities

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 15:44
After 134 days of fierce resisting and defending. The women, men and their combatants with the support and solidarity from millions of people around the world had finally defeated the vicious attack from ISIS and liberated their town Kobane. This was not just a defeat for ISIS and it’s dream to establish an Islamic Kelifat. But it had also destroyed the ISIS’s ally the current Turkish government’s dream to resurrect a Neu-othman empire.

The attack on Kobane was a proxy war launched by ISIS on behalf of the regional regimes and others against the bravery people in Kobane and the Democratic Self administration (DSA). [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27961]
