Over the previous year myself and a small number of comrades have been involved in housing activism in Dublin, specifically in relation using squatting or using occupation as a tactic. This is meant to be a short piece on some of the lessons learnt to inform activists who wish to get involved in this sort activity. ---- At the start of our career as squatter/housing activists over a year ago occupying buildings seemed like the primary logical option available to us. Not only was it an available and sensible form of direct action, which informed by our Social Anarchist politics was invariable the best and most effective tactic to use, it was also an easy way to alleviate the housing crisis. ---- It goes without saying that physical spaces and building counter power institutions(along with organisations) are necessary for the creation of a movement which can challenge the ...

Because Martina our "rule of law" still holds in custody in Pankrác, continue to go after him on the visit.

Armed with several sophisticated tools for publishing loud noises we moved to the usual place against the wall of the prison. ---- Chanting slogans like "Our weapon is solidarity" and "Freedom to political prisoners" punctuated wild din.

First, we must understand that we consider that no further significant improvement of our existence can be expected within the capitalist framework and its political system, parliamentary democracy. Europe knows almost continuously for 40 years an economic and social crisis. This structural crisis can not be resolved by a political will that would accept the framework of this system: state, market economy and private property. ---- We believe this impossibility explains the failures of Syriza, Podemos and the renunciation of all initiatives explicitly or not wanting to pose as new "radical left". Most of these initiatives assume that the crisis of capitalism comes from the poor distribution of wealth and in rebalancing the balance could both stimulate the economy and allow people to live better. We oppose this belief possibility of alternative crisis management. This is a ...

The umbrella organisation of the Kurdish movement, the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council Co-Presidency, has released a statement about last night's coup attempt in Turkey. ---- The statement said; “There has been a coup attempt by persons whose identity and purpose is yet not clear. This attempt comes just before the military council meeting, where Recep Tayyip Erdogan was reportedly going to assign generals close to himself to the army's top tier. Another striking dimension of the coup attempt is that it comes at a time when discussions about the fascist AKP government's foreign policy, were taking place.” ---- Coup attempt is proof of lack of democracy ---- The statement by KCK reads; “No matter within which internal and external political factors and focuses, and for what reasons a power struggle is waged, this case is not a matter of defending or ...

At least 84 dead in Nice as a truck is deliberately driven through the huge crowds marking the anniversary of the French Revolution. The driver who was shot be police after plowing through the crowd for 1.2km is reported to be a French citizen of Tunisian descent. The method of attack which is very similar to one advocated in the ISIS magazine strongly suggests an ISIS /Daesh attack. ---- The massive ISIS bombings in Baghdad that killed nearly 300 this month on 3rd July followed the ISIS defeat in Fallujah and this attack comes on the eve of their defeat in Manbij. There the Kurdish YPG as part of the SDF are engaged in street fighting in the city center and the next stage of their offensive should cut ISiS off from its resupply routes into Turkey.

“Compared with the wholesale violence of capital and government, political acts of violence are but a drop in the ocean.
