Να ακυρώσουμε τα αντικοινωνικά σχέδια
Σε μια πόλη όπου, η ανεργία, η φτώχεια, τα λουκέτα, η μετανάστευση κι η έλλειψη ελπίδας για το μέλλον, συνθέτουν την πραγματικότητα χιλιάδων πολιτών, η εξουσία των εταιρειών (πολυεθνικές) αναδιαρθρώνεται κι αναπτύσσεται (μεγιστοποίηση κερδών, υπερσυσσώρευση κεφαλαίου) επιβάλλοντας την απόλυτη κυριαρχία της.
Jusqu'à quand continuent-ils d'assassiner des leaders, des paysans, des femmes, des jeunes et des ho
Le gouvernement de Juan Manuel Santos, se réfugie sous un système répressif. La responsabilité des institutions est de défendre les citoyens, mais il semble que cette théorie soit morte et qu'il existe plutôt un continum mortis en Colombie
Protests and demonstrations broke out in Tuzla on Wednesday night and have spread to the towns of Zenica, Mostar, Bihac and Sarayevo. In the northern industrial city of Tuzla, thousands of workers have been made redundant with many of them losing their pensions and health benefits.
Reuters reports that many workers have taken to the streets and have been joined by students. Government buildings and the police have been attacked and confrontations continue. Unemployment is officially 27.5% in Bosnia (officially) and the ruling cliques here are widely seen as gangsters.

State’s offensive against anarchists continues, Tasos Theofilou sentenced to 25 years in prison without any evidence
The Greek courts (following the verdict of corporate media that had decided since 2012) sentenced today the Anarchist Tasos Theofilou to 25 years in prison for a bank roberry in the island of Paros that he never did. One of the strongest evidence used by the court was the fact that Theofilou when arrested in Athens had a backpack writing the name of Paros island on it. So although no witness recognised him, no fingertips were found (the robber was not wearing gloves) while there are several people who testified that Theofilou was with them when the roberry took place, he is sent to prison.
Thousands of people march -under rain- in the centre of Athens against the state of emergency that Greek Police and the minister of Police Nicos Dendias are trying to implement against the Anarchists. A few weeks ago Christodoulos Xiros the member of the communist armed struggle group ’17November’ escaped from Korydalos prison. Since then the police started a witch hunt against Anarchists supposedly looking for Xiros. At least 26 houses of Anarchists have been raided so far, with the police and the attorenys general destroying the homes they attack.

February 5, 2014.
Alexandra Dukhanina: "There were only blatant lies and brute force"
At first I thought that this entire case is some sort of mad mistake and
nonsense. But now, after listening to the speeches by prosecutors and
after finding out what are the imprisonment terms that they demanded for
all of us, I realized that they take revenge on all of us. They take
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 (in Spanish obviously) was used to describe the neighborhood, workplace & unemployed assemblies that emerged to form "social movements seeking self-management, autonomy and direct democracy."
