Brazil hosts the FIFA World Cup in July 2014 and the Youth Olympics in 2016, absorbing huge amounts of money, while many basic needs of the population are not satisfied. For the purposes of sporting spectacle, more than 170,000 families were thrown into the street! ---- The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) do not know the logic of money.

In 2014 is completing 200 years of the birth of Mikhail Bakunin. He was one of the main theoretical and revolutionary activists of the nineteenth century. His thought and practice are still today a heritage of the working class and oppressed peoples. ---- The revolutionary anarchist Mikhail Bakunin Alexandrovitsch, from a family of landed gentry, was born on May 30, 1814, in the city of Premukhimo, russian province Twer, and died on 1 July 1876, in the city of Bern, Switzerland. As was common for the elites of the time, Bakunin joined the army in 1829 and came to reach the officer corps. ---- In 1835, he changed his uniform and weapons for books, abandoning the army and went to study in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Arrived late the National Policy for Social Participation (PNPS) established on May 26 by President Dilma Rousseff. I am not referring to the fact that more formalized channels of participation arises after the protests of 2013, but after a decade of disorganization of the structures of the Brazilian popular movement. Here the contrast. ---- The country has increased the formal channels to participate in decisions of government and therefore public policies needed to reduce inequality. Have forms of pressure become diluted with the inability of accumulation of forces at the base of the social pyramid. ---- The Federal Constitution of 1988 paved the way for our synthetic example in disputes between public interest and private appropriation of resources.

We put out an alert after we were told that a gang of 3 men with crowbars "came this afternoon and broke in to one of the houses. About 40-50 people showed up outside to show support, then 5 Garda showed up. People inside resisted and argued until the alleged owners and Garda left the house and left the street to a large round of applause. ---- Everything is cool now. The street was closed off and there was lots of music, food, fun, and we managed to get the support of many parents and school children on the way home from school. ---- Generally speaking, the Garda didn't know what to do and there was wide public support. Small victory for now" ...

The world is reeling from the deepest economic crisis since the Great Depression, with the threat of further meltdowns ever-looming.

He who, in July, seemed to hold power and popularity "supernatural" supported by a ferocious media machine that consumes everything in its path, is now trapped in his post the strongest man in Egypt.

A-infos - May 30, 2014 - 4:12pm
One of the major criticisms levelled at anarchism as a political philosophy is that it is utopian. Many would argue that this is a misunderstanding of anarchism, that the basis for an anarchist society does not rely on naivety, impracticality or a simplistic and overly positive view of humanity. I want to argue that this is a misunderstanding of utopianism. Of course anarchism is utopian. Anybody who thinks their own ideology is not utopian either hasn’t thought it through properly or, for some reason, wants to live in a society that’s doomed to inequality, misery and eventual self-destruction. And anybody who thinks utopianism is simplistic, impractical or naive clearly hasn’t read enough utopian fiction. There are a plethora of distant worlds that can boast anarchist societies as complex, as pragmatic, as inspired and inspiring, as troubled and as troubling as any historical or ...

Taking the example of Rio de Janeiro maximized, Brazil mediates what is rule of survival of the nation's largest African descent in the Americas. The state is racist and does not recognize civil and social rights of the majority. The elites are racist policy and reject any repair horror of slavery. Here's why there is so much controversy with quota policies and the non-recognition of Quilombo lands (lands free afro descendants, such as Palenque in Colombia or the Maroons in the Caribbean).

As every act of top sports business, it carries more or less bullying of the locals (in case of Belarus, it is, of course, rather more).

Organise! is reprinting this article by Wayne Price which originally appeared in the US anarchist magazine The Utopian, because we feel it raises a number of important issues. ---- Together with the revival of anarchism in the last decades, there has been an increased interest in Utopia. This is largely due to the crisis in Marxism, long the dominant set of ideas among the radical left. After the Soviet Union imploded and China turned to an openly market-based capitalism, Marxism became discredited for many. This resulted in a revived interest in Utopia from two apparently contradictory directions, for and against. What these views have in common is that they take utopianism seriously. Utopianism must be taken seriously if socialism is to get out of the dead end it has reached through established Marxism, but what revolutionary socialists need is much more ...

Some, mostly Palestinians regarded it as 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 independent struggle" for 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 bi-national democratic whole Palestine and not for a national Palestinian state.
