Documento politico sulla lotta palestinese

Anarkismo - Thu, 05/29/2014 - 02:38
Adottato da Ahdut il 25 aprile 2014
Il progetto coloniale sionista, sponsorizzato dalle potenze imperialiste, ha soggiogato la Palestina sia compiendo ogni sforzo possibile per l'espulsione delle popolazioni indigene residenti nell'area interessata, sia concentrandole in enclaves chiuse. Una parte della popolazione palestinese ha evitato l'espulsione diventando cittadini di Israele ed andando incontro a discriminazioni sia giuridiche che pratiche. E lo Stato di Israele persiste nell'adottare misure che ne fanno cittadini emarginati. Recentemente queste misure si sono concentrate nel Piano Prawer per il Negev, che evoca il piano di giudaizzazione della Galilea degli anni '70 insieme ai fatti della Giornata della Terra del 30 marzo 1976.

Palestine-Israel: In the Beitunia murder, the joint struggle again highlights the most important aspect of Israeli involvement in it.*

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 05/28/2014 - 09:47
Araqeeb, Bil'in, Beitunia, Ma'sarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'lin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, Tel-Aviv/Jaffa
Many objections were raised about the participation of Israelis in the non-armed struggle in the areas of Palestine occupied in the 1967 war. Some, mostly Palestinians, regarded it as a contribution to so called "normalization". Others claimed that Israeli activists should do their struggle within the Israeli population of the 1948 borders. Many anarchists raised reservations as the Palestinian popular struggle is a kind of capitalist "national independence struggle" for the self-determination of the Palestinian capitalist elite to monopolize the option for the exploitation of the Palestinian working masses - they just ignore the fact that most Palestinians wish for a bi-national democratic whole Palestine and not for a national Palestinian State. Others just do not take upon themselves the obligation to serve as a life-saving shield, as Israeli policy officially forbids the state forces to shoot to kill when Israelis are supposed to be among the demonstrators. Indigenous people struggle against settler colonialist transfer and marginalization is NOT the same as a national Bourgeoisie for "national independence" or "national self-determination".

El poder mundial del capital financiero: paraísos fiscales y mega bloques comerciales

Anarkismo - Tue, 05/27/2014 - 08:54
Bruno Lima Rocha, 15 de mayo de 2014

En este artículo inauguro una nueva serie, enfrentando un adversario que desafía las voluntades soberanas de cualquier colectividad de ciudadanos. Se trata del capital financiero y su tendencia a la fusión con las grandes corporaciones transnacionales. Aporto un dato elemental, cuya fuente es el portal del profesor de economía Ladislau Dowbor (dowbor.org), de la PUC-SP (Pontificia Universidad Católica de São Paulo), de fecha 06/11/2012, citando que “El Instituto Federal Suizo de Investigación Tecnológica (ETH en la sigla alemana), constató que 147 corporaciones, de las cuales 75% son grupos financieros, controlan el 40% del sistema corporativo mundial. En un círculo un poco más abierto, 737 grupos controlan el 80%.”

La realidad brasileña después de las protestas de 2013

Anarkismo - Tue, 05/27/2014 - 08:40
Bruno Lima Rocha y Júlia Klein, 12 de mayo de 2014

Existe hoy en día en Brasil un cuestionamiento acerca de la democracia brasileña, una especie de "crisis de la madurez" de la sociedad. Nuestra democracia ofrece, en teoría, la igualdad de derechos y condiciones isonómicas (de igualdad de los ciudadanos ante la ley) para todos y todas. Por lo tanto, la lógica de la alternancia en el poder sería acompañada por un volumen de ventas deseable en el liderazgo, con el fin de oxigenar los representantes y agentes, así como hacer un esfuerzo para deconstruir la legitimidad de las oligarquías de partido. Particularmente, no consideramos que sea inevitable que las élites políticas controlen con mano de hierro a sus directorios.

El Brasil Postcolonial: El Racismo Y La Violencia Estructural Del Estado

Anarkismo - Tue, 05/27/2014 - 08:24
Bruno Lima Rocha y Julia Klein, 05 de mayo de 2014

En el fin de abril alerta al país la cuestión del racismo y la violencia estructural del estado contra su propio pueblo. Tomando a Río de Janeiro como ejemplo maximizado, Brasil mediatiza aquello que es regla de supervivencia de la mayor nación afro–descendiente en las Américas. El Estado es racista y no reconoce los derechos civiles o sociales de la mayoría. Las élites son racistas y rechazan cualquier política de reparación del horror de la esclavitud. He aquí por qué hay tanta controversia con las políticas de cuotas y el no reconocimiento de las tierras de Quilombo (tierras de afro descendientes libres, tales como los Palenques en Colombia o los Maroons en el Caribe). En el caso extremo, en los conglomerados urbanos, donde la masa negra se desplazó después de la abolición, el Estado poscolonial realiza la eliminación física de una población colocada bajo sospecha. Los siguientes hechos hablan por sí mismos.

ICTU and Sex Work

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Mon, 05/26/2014 - 14:22

 

In 2012 The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) made a submission to the Irish government’s public consultation on the prostitution laws. Most of it was just a cut-and-paste job of text sent to them by the Turn Off The Red Light campaign, which seeks the introduction of the Swedish model. But there is one part of ICTU’s original contribution which I found remarkable. A few paragraphs down the submission cites – clearly for the purpose of endorsing – the view of the Technical, Electrical & Engineering Union‘s General Secretary that “prostitution could not be considered work”.

An Anarchist Critique of Horizontalism

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Mon, 05/26/2014 - 14:13
 

Horizontalism is an emerging term used to describe the key common characteristics of the waves of rebellion of the last decade. Occupy in 2011 was the peak to date but the term Horizontalism itself appears to originate the rebellion in Argentina after the 2001 banking crisis there. Marina Sitrin in her book on that rebellion says the term was used to describe the neighborhood, workplace & unemployed assemblies that emerged to form “social movements seeking self-management, autonomy and direct democracy.”

Religion in the Irish education system

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Mon, 05/26/2014 - 13:53
“Father Ted: It’s not as if everyone’s going to go off and join some mad religious cult just because we go off for a picnic for a couple of hours.   Father Dougal: God, Ted, I heard about those cults. Everyone dressing in black and saying our Lord’s gonna come back and judge us all!   Father Ted: No... No, Dougal, that’s us. That’s Catholicism.”

Pragmatism, electoralism & locking women up - how far does too far go when you are hoping for the vote?

Anarchist Writers - Fri, 05/23/2014 - 06:22

It’s election time in Ireland and as usual the excitement of the electoral game has resulted in some on the left losing the plot. I’m referring in particular to the continued endorsement erstwhile leftists are giving to a virulently anti-choice MEP candidate, one Diarmuid O'Flynn. Diarmuid you see is considered sound on the issue of the bank bailout debt. That alone is enough to not only overlook his anti-choice politics but to attack those who raise this contradiction as ’posturing’ ‘minoritarian’ ‘arrogant’ ‘postmodern’ ‘moralists’ who lack an ‘alternative strategy’.

The insults quoted are all from a single afternoon Facebook row and were leveled at anyone who dared to question people on the left endorsing an MEP candidate who stated "The only occasion on which I can foresee abortion arising in the EU is as an equal rights/civil right issue. I would vigorously oppose any such imposition on Ireland.”

Κείμενο - παρέμβαση για την Ουκρανία

Anarkismo - Thu, 05/22/2014 - 17:45
Ο μόνος τρόπος να απεμπλακεί η απελευθερωτική συνθήκη από τα ψευτο-διλήμματα που θέτουν οι κυρίαρχοι όλων των εθνικών -και άλλων- αποχρώσεων είναι να πολεμήσει ενάντια στο φασισμό και τον καπιταλισμό. Γιατί όσοι μοιράζονται τον αγώνα δικαιούνται απ’ την ιστορία να συμμετέχουν στη διαμόρφωση της λαϊκής βούλησης. Έτσι για να δικαιούσαι να λες: "ούτε Δεξιός Τομέας ούτε Πούτιν" -αν είσαι αναρχικός στο Κίεβο- οφείλεις να πολεμάς τον Ουκρανικό ναζισμό, αλλιώς κάνεις απλώς δήλωση νομιμοφροσύνης στους φασίστες. Κι εν κατακλείδι το δικαίωμα στην άποψη και το φιλοσοφείν το κερδίζει το κίνημα πολεμώντας κι όχι ιεραρχώντας τη «δημοκρατικότητα» των καθεστωτικών επιλογών.

21 de Mayo, Irrumpe el Movimiento Libertario

Ni la lluvia, ni la repre, ni los cantos de sirena de la Nueva Mayoría, impidieron que el pueblo y sus organizaciones se volcaran a las calles de Valparaíso; miles de personas coparon la avenida Pedro Montt desde la Plaza Victoria hasta la Plaza del Pueblo Salvador Allende, cientos de pancartas y lienzos con las más diversas demandas y consignas llenaron de color, alegría y combatividad a nuestro puerto que tan golpeado ha sido en este último tiempo.
