Media Condemn Presidential Insult but Not Austerity

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 17:56

A terrible atrocity has been committed. Democracy is under fire. A thuggish mob below common decency have insulted The President. That is, welcome to the Jobstown media-hysteria Mark II.

They can really pump out the moral outrage when it suits them can't they? The more trivial the offence, the more intense their condemnations. 

But it's hard to take this seriously. It is merely another weapon in the arsenal of bankrupt politicians' realpolitik; so clearly sensationalist fodder for the mainstream media. This is a point-scorer for the establishment.

A Makhnovitchina e o Anarquismo

Anarkismo - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 15:40
Capítulo de "História do Movimento Makhnovista"
Este texto -- o capítulo XII do livro "História do Movimento Makhnovista", de Piotr Arshinov -- foi escrito no início dos anos 1920 e reflete sobre as relações entre a makhnovitchina e o anarquismo. Ele estabelece, a partir de uma avaliação autocrítica, os primeiros elementos das posições que serão mais bem delineadas na Plataforma, de 1926, escrita pelos militantes russos exilados na França que se articulavam em torno da revista "Dielo Truda".

Put an End to Jimmy John's Retaliation: Picket and call-in to support fired IWW organizer!

Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 13:23

Picket: Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015 at 11:45 AM
Jimmy John's, 401 W Pratt St, Baltimore, Maryland
RSVP on Facebook!

Nothing scares the bosses more than workers standing up for dignity and a better life on the job. From day one the bosses have conducted a campaign of retaliation against union members at the shop.

On Friday, January 23rd, Jimmy Johns fired one of the IWW organizers in the shop.

We need your help to show the bosses that such action against our members is unacceptable! Join the picket line with us and let your voice be heard! We won't let management silence our voices and attack our members.

Our picket will take place during Orioles FanFest, and you can help us hit the boss where it hurts the most: his wallet!

Garda Brutality on Doorstep of Irish Citizen Army Secretary

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 13:00

The Irish Water battle came right to the door step of Sean O'Casy's home on Inisfallen Parade this morning. Garda assaults have seen one person injuries and attempted intimidation on balaclava wearing goons hired by Irish Water is continuing. 

We note that while the media has had a huge focus on insults shouted at the president no questions have been raised at why 'security' are not only following and videoing residents but are now running around masked up and refusing to identify themselves. It seems extraordinary that the media have failed to notice this while at the same time having such a focus on verbal insults (which have now been apologised for). You'd almost think they had an agenda.

Appeal for financial support

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 08:02
Libertarian Syndicalist Union (ESE Athens) supports and joins in solidarity movements for the Syrian refugees (victims of war) which live in Greece. Apart from their fair request for direct provision of asylum and travel documents, these people have huge needs in terms of accommodation, food, health care, etc. Hundreds of Syrian refugees reside in hotels (as a stopgap solution), not in good conditions , being under the responsibility of the Greek government and Athens' mayor. We can also report that food supplies for the above refugees are οbtained from charities and solidarity movements.

Pedro Lemebel: “No necesito disfraz, aquí está mi cara, hablo por mi diferencia, defiendo lo que soy”

Anarkismo - Tue, 01/27/2015 - 07:36
Un agresivo cáncer te llevó muy temprano. Demasiado incorrecto para recibir un Premio Nacional. Demasiado rebelde para la cultura de los Fondart. No fuiste un escritor embobado por la extravagancia del mundo de las letras, fuiste un hombre pobre, homosexual y creador inigualable: “Hay tantos niños que van a nacer con una alita rota y yo quiero que vuelen compañero. Que su revolución les dé un pedazo de cielo rojo para que puedan volar”.
