Review of Samuel Farber, The Politics of Che Guevara (2016) ---- The recent death of Fidel Castro makes it timely to review this account of how Che Guevara and Fidel Castro created the ideology and social structure of "Communist" Cuba. ---- Ernesto (Che) Guevara has become an international icon of the left. Pictures of the martyred revolutionary are widely seen on tee-shirts and posters, not to mention coffee cups. Movies have been of his life. He appears even in musicals and movies about unrelated people (for example, "Evita"). He is admired by people who know little or nothing about him, including liberals who would never advocate a revolution in their own country. He is also admired by people who would like a revolution, one which would reorganize the U.S. to have the same system as Castroite Cuba. There are those who condemn Che (and Castro's Cuba) in the name of ...

Riseup might be compromised.

They have stated that if such an order were placed on them compromising their services, that they will not update their canary page. ---- 2) Their canary page was due updated last week, but has not. Due is slight exaggeration - they state they will endeavour to update every quarter, and their last ...

Posted on November 25, 2016 - Federation Tags: anarcha-feminism, Devrimci Anarsist Faaliyet, feminism, international, Turkey, women's liberation ---- Statement from the organization Anarchist Women on the "sexual abuse" bill proposed by the governing AK Party in Turkey, which was recently withdrawn after mass protests from women. Among other things, the bill would have pardoned men who raped underage girls if the girls married their rapists. As the AKP is currently ruling through de-facto dictatorship, having started an internal war against the Kurdish population, declared a permanent "state of emergency", fired thousands upon thousands of state workers, and arrested the leaders of the leftist People's Democratic Party (HDP), any victory at all against the government is significant. However, as Anarchist Women note, this is not a permanent victory, and the ...

December 1, 2016 - 8:12am
LETS, a Local Exchange Trading Systems or local currency systems are based on the exchange by the commodities or services for locally produced units that are to supplement or substitute national currencies in the region. ---- Stephen Gudeman in his book The Economy's Tension: The Dialectics of Community and Market (2008) describes LETS with an emphasis on reciprocity, which provides a very local level of the system: "LETS defines the market environment, prohibits the levying of interest, allows a specific range of goods and often emphasizes community values and motives.

Linton emigrated to Canada in the '70s. Here he sought to find out how to relate to each other the social ...

November 30, 2016 - 6:53am
It will be difficult to escape the eulogies to Fidel Castro (1926-2016) from the British Left. Jeremy Corbyn's take is perhaps most significant though. Treading a tightrope between his enthusiasm for old-fashioned socialist values and the reality of modern politics in Britain, his observations are revealing. He makes the very dangerous relativistic argument that whilst in Cuba, as in other regimes, there have been ‘excesses', we have to look at the positives such as the healthcare system and education. There has been much change in Cuba, he says, and that economic progress must go hand in hand with human and free-speech rights. Above all, he says that Castro, "will be remembered as a champion of social justice". ---- 10 US presidents threatened to oust Castro and failed. Corbyn finds this impressive. It could have something to do with the ...
