November 17, 2016 - 12:21pm
Plundering of the planet has resulted in irreversible damage that will further deepen. It is necessary to say goodbye to the selfish mentality of capitalism. Download, print and circulate November issue of wall newspapers A3. ---- In recent hysteria about the US elections and the latest Games of Thrones Czech politics drowned several simultaneously imaginary and painfully present obituaries. No worries, no celebrity died nobody shoot another gorilla at the zoo. Only it turned out that during the last forty years, nearly three-fifths of extinct animals, and that is on its last legs and the Great Barrier Reef. Not something we should worry about that? ---- Milled phrase "throwing peas at the wall," sitting here like few. Exactly foolishly and irrationally shouting similar messages to the world in the light of long-term development looks like. It was perhaps almost all agree ...

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Novembre - Poland: Abortion a right to reclaim (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

November 17, 2016 - 12:20pm
The women of Poland retained their right to abortion already reduced to almost nothing and almost impossible to practice despite an attempt by the Church to remove it entirely. This is not really a victory. ---- Polish women took to the streets in October to protect their already very thin right to abortion against an attempt to ban it completely. Yet this fundamental right of women has not always been absent from the country. Thus, from 1955 to 1993, abortion was free and open. From 1989 to 1993, fundamentalists cathos parties and the Church attempted several times to ban do. And it almost succeeded. After blackmail the Church threatening not to support the ultra-liberal reforms, the parliament passed the ban in January 1993. After several attempts to overcome improvements right catho, women suffer permanently since 1996 one of the most restrictive laws in Europe. Abortion is only ...

Whistled in the streets, underpaid work, beaten and enslaved in privacy, look at us, do we speak to break the taboo of violence. When a woman is attacked, it is all women who are affected and it is all together that we must defend ourselves against male violence. ---- In 2014, France, 134 women died at the hands of their spouses. 223,000 women aged 18 to 75 undergo annual physical and sexual violence by their partners and 84,000 each year are victims of sexual violence or sexual abuse attempts. 1% of them say they have complained. Nevertheless, in 2014, only 765 men were sentenced. In France, men earn 23.5% more than women. 100% of women who use public transport there have been harassed. ---- In Paris, the demonstration of November 25 will leave at 18:30 Bastille. ---- Join Alternative Libertaire in antipatriarchal radical pole. ...

November 16, 2016 - 11:45am
Only a reinvigorated left and radical-democratic movements can clear away the ruins of the political establishment and defeat the proto-fascist right. ---- A political earthquake has just ripped through the world. There can be no doubt that Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential elections marks a historic breaking point for American politics and the liberal international order established in the wake of World War II. Things simply won't be the same after this. And yet it's crucial to remind ourselves that this moment has been a long time in the making. ---- In recent years, the twin pillars of the postwar world system - global capitalist markets and liberal democratic institutions - have been steadily decaying under the strains of a structural crisis of financialization and a deep legitimation crisis of the neoliberal political establishment. Yesterday's shock election ...

On 15 and 16 Neomvriou political representative of US imperialism, Barack Obama, will visit Greece, to congratulate the Greek Government on the progress that has shown in implementing reforms, demanding the further involvement of the country in the imperialist plans, and will be on the table the issue of refugees. - The visit of the President of the World in the given situation (like Clinton on 19/11/99) is an even greater challenge for the youth and the workers' and people's movement, as it will take place in view of the three-day celebration of the Polytechnic uprising. ---- This move aims to attack the anti-dictatorial struggle and the student movement and the reversal of the actual content, it aims to highlight the murderers of the people as friends and allies for debt relief, such as constantly projected by the SYRIZA-ANEL government .

(en) US, No One is Coming to Save Us - An Anarchist Response to the Election of Donald Trump - by First of May Anarchist Alliance

November 15, 2016 - 5:25am
The surprise victory of Donald Trump this past Tuesday has quickly presented people in this country (and around the world) with a vastly different political landscape than we had expected. We are seeing a rise in right-wing attacks as the far right is emboldened by the victory, much like what happened earlier this year after the success of the Brexit referendum in the UK. The incompetence and capitulation of the Democratic Party has forced many of its former supporters to recognize that the fight against the far right cannot be won by liberal electoral politics. This new reality forces anti-authoritarians of all stripes to rise to the challenge of building strong movements for working class self-defense in this new atmosphere. ---- Much writing in the coming weeks will be dedicated to figuring out, from the Democratic perspective, “what went wrong.” Already ...


November 15, 2016 - 5:11am
WHAT WE ARE FACING ---- Donald Trump has been elected the forty-fifth President of the United States. As revolutionaries we are committed to a world that has no place for the likes of Trump or Hillary Clinton. We know that Clinton would have continued making a world for the ruling class and would likely have done nothing of substance for common people. However, it's impossible to deny that Trump and his Vice President Mike Pence represent a virulent force of racism, misogyny, and authoritarianism that must be absolutely resisted. They recall the memories of the dictators of history, particularly the German and Italian Fascists, having been propelled to victory by an insurgent racist turnout at voting booths around the country. ---- Although these are trying times, we cannot afford to withdraw into despair and sorrow for long. We must fight the fear that ...

Pierre Douillard-Lefevre, sociologist and historian, lost an eye following a launcher firing "defense of bullets." In a small book published by Editions du Waterfront, Eye of the Needle, it traces the history of the creation of the French police arsenal in detail the composition, and highlights the growing militarization of the police. ---- In 1995, the Director General of the National Police, Claude Gueant, decided to equip his men with a new weapon: the Flash-Ball gun. The turn is symbolic: the troops fired back at the crowd. In 2002, Sarkozy, Interior Minister, will engage in this shift with enthusiasm and non-lethal weapons will increase. They allow to target a determined protester and implement a highly effective strategy in a hurt to deter thousand. ...

To break the window of Capitalism ---- In times of impoverishment of the working class and the state of exception in which they are unemployed came from the previous government, the law provides for the operation of shops for seven Sundays a year, which by decree increased to 52. "We defend the Sunday holiday! Not shop not working "was the slogan of Syriza up before the election. Nevertheless the shops will remain open for another Sunday, 6 November. As with a number of issues that would change radically with the left government, so it is on ice. We had no doubt this development already before the election, let alone now. The SYRIZA-ANEL government does nothing other than to ensure "labor peace" and to promote "national unity", a section always orchestrated by the bosses and works in their favor. ...

In a period of general economic and humanitarian crisis, once violated labor rights and acquired years that salaries and pensions decrease rapidly and unemployment is touching red, the bulk of society living in poverty and misery, thousands of people crammed into detention centers - "accommodation" in appalling living conditions, the SYRIZA-ANEL government in cooperation with banks and always under the supervision of European institutions, proceeds of auctioning a 'residence ,. ---- It is truly remarkable the fact that what no previous governments have managed to sign the first two memoranda, now comes the leftist government to realize and even in the midst of a mismatch social peace and consensus. ---- Given the economic and working conditions prevailing in the country and the standard of living, which are progressively shrinking, and the vast percentage of home ...

(en) US, black rose fed: A new political moment reactions to a Trump victory from the radical left

November 14, 2016 - 7:21am
The election of Donald Trump as the President of the United States left many across the left, even veterans of many years, shocked and stunned. Expecting the triumph of the deeply unpopular, status quo neo-liberal candidate Hillary Clinton, the result came in with an electoral college victory for the reviled, narcissistic, right-wing candidate Donald Trump running on a platform of white nationalism and anti-status quo populism. In these moments it's easy to feel powerless, to let rage simply pour out in whatever outlet it can find, but as radicals and those who believe in revolutionary social change, it's important to look ahead and analyze the new political moment we find ourselves in. ---- These short comments and reflections gathered the day after the election are from individuals and not particular organizations. We hope they bring hope in the struggles ...

Fifteen antifascists and antifascist caught in the area and then tortured inside the police headquarters. Six more antifascists later accused in the same proceedings. ---- The motoporeia is part of a large series of anti-fascist demonstrations which in the context of the broader anti-fascist and anarchist struggle attempted and succeeded in halting the spread of Nazi Golden Dawn, to show social state contribution to the establishment of the modern fascist para-state and to awaken consciences to the need for political and social self-defense against the state and para-state mechanisms. ---- Specifically, motoporeia of September 30 with mass participation moved to America Square area in recent days held fascist pogroms against ...

from libcom: Foodora in Italy ...It's been sold for a figure of several tens of million of euros yet Foodora has the typical appeal of a startup: young and friendly international people working in an open space office in Berlin and young students delivering food by bike as an easy side-job. ---- It landed in Turin as a mirror image of the Berlin base. The managers, all under 30, meet every so often in a co-working space in the city center, are informal and speak using English words. The fleet of couriers are also young, educated, and are paid €5 per hour. ---- This image started to crack when in August Deliveroo couriers in London went on strike and a month later their counterparts in Paris also protested. The reason was, oversimplifying, that once the company had attracted enough "workers", pay shifted from a fixed scheme to per-delivery compensation only. ...

The visit of the outgoing US President Barack Obama in Greece anything but courtesy is. - Aside from the powerful symbolic weight of the visit of an American president on the eve of the anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising (and even in a "left-wing" government) the content of Obama's coming could be summed up in "business as usual". - As is known, of course, these jobs are always contaminated with the blood of the people. - The world today has nothing to do with the welter of words on the "end of history" made after the end of the cold war and tried to provide a theoretical justification for global autocracy US. ---- Amid capitalist crisis antagonisms between the imperialisms have turned vast areas of the planet in slaughterhouses, at the same time the epelafnontas capitalism attacked fiercely in the lives of the exploited and even oppressed in countries where until now the ...
