(en) Britain, Anarchist Federation ORGANISE! #85 - Fight for the City Part Two -- No place to run: control of space by capital and the State

A-infos - November 13, 2015 - 12:01pm
In this series of articles, we are looking at the ways in which the city is a site of class struggle. In the last issue of Organise we looked at how capital has made massive profits out of investment in housing developments, resulting in a serious housing crisis and social cleansing for the working class. In this issue, we examine how capital, with the State's support, is seeking to control all aspects of city life such that every inch of ground is a source of profit for someone. ---- We are already exploited at work. Wages are as low as the bosses can get away with in order to maximise their profits. But we are exploited in other ways. Increasingly, all aspects of our non-working lives involve the spending of our wages on things that make profits for others: landlords, banks, and all the companies providing the goods and services that we buy. It wouldn't matter if it was ...

The following piece has been submitted to us from Rachel E. Brown, and while not a member we are posting this piece in order to open up a discussion on the matters raised. To that end one of our members has added their reply underneath (with Rachel's blessing). ---- Boycott your graduation ceremony if you really care about the class divide ---- This summer, thousands of students will attend their graduation ceremony which traditionally marks the completion of an undergraduate degree at university. But this ceremony is not just some innocent celebration of achievement. Finalists seem to regard it a "must do" event, something you can't afford not to do. But with gown hire around £40, Champagne costs and eye-watering professional photography charges, many students can't afford it, literally. Student journalists have long complained these costs could mean students "miss ...

A-infos - November 11, 2015 - 3:30am
Over half of the world’s population live in cities. This is expected to rise to 75% by 2050. The move to the cities first occurred in Europe with industrialisation. It was a relatively slow process compared to the pace of change in the developing world. For example, London in 1910 was seven times larger than it had been in 1780 whereas, China added more city-dwellers in the 1980s than did all of Europe, including Russia, in the entire 19th century (Davis: 2007). And cities are constantly changing, transformed by the need for capitalism to find new sources of profit. Capitalism has continually strived to ensure that all aspects of work involve the creation of surplus value. Now, capital is bringing all aspects of life into the capitalist orbit- making where we live and what we do when we are not at work, part of this value creation system. This means the control of ...

(en) Britain, SIX REASONS THE HIGHER EDUCATION GREEN PAPER SUCKS by afed

A-infos - November 11, 2015 - 3:29am
The Higher Education green paper came out today and it's fucking catastrophic for anyone wanting to learn. Here are six reasons why: ---- 1) The government and business interests want to make it easier to found universities while at the same time have an 'exit strategy' for universities that fail. This means rich people/companies can set up a uni, have no limit on the number of people they take in, churn some bullshit degrees out for a few years, then go 'bust' and fuck off with the profits. And the people who got a degree at the institution? Only worth using it as toilet paper. ---- 2) Higher Education facilities will gain an exemption from FOI (freedom of information) requests. This means that universities will be in no way publicly accountable as they won't have to disclose unfavourable information, for example: Are they upholding their duty of care to students? ...
