A-infos - February 9, 2015 - 5:09am
The novel by Patrick Deville came out last spring. He might burn from the sun that crushes cities and Mexican volcanoes, the publisher chose a bad timing for a melancholy novel that enjoys much more in the fall. ---- Viva is a stroll in Mexico City today to meet the artists and revolutionaries who have marked the twentieth century. Lost or losers but beautiful. Poets, writers, Victims of Stalinism and Stalinist killers, many Europeans were to cross, to meet or lost in the post-revolutionary Mexico from 1917 to 1947. In search of spirituality, rest or oblivion. ---- Artaud, Craven, Lowry and Breton one side. Trotsky, Victor Serge, Modotti, Spanish anarchists of the other. But Benjamin Peret or B. Traven, which in turn are militiamen and writers. Mexicans are not left in the shadow of Zapata, Villa and Popocatepetl. The first course map Kahlo and Rivera. ...

A-infos - February 8, 2015 - 12:26pm
Anti-Semitism is a violent oppression, as well as others. It has always been so, but today it seems essential not to deal with this particular racism and put a few things right. ---- No, anti-Semitism is not only in a minority of the extreme right. It can be found as well on the far left and the rest of the political spectrum. This is true today, but it is not new; no movement is completely spared. We find many other forms of oppression in every movement after all, there is no reason why this is not the case for this one in particular. ---- No, anti-Semitism is not an outdated old thing or invention brought up to date by the French State, or by the Israeli government for that matter, to denigrate the Palestinian struggle. While it is true that this oppression is manipulated by power, it is the same for Palestinian struggles we do not give up either. ...

The Anarchist Action Network is calling for a communications blockade of the Spanish embassy on Monday the 9th of February in solidarity with those suffering at the hands of the Guardia Civil (the Spanish Police Force). ---- Recently, Spanish Anarchists have suffered a wave of repression. Raids, arrests, imprisonment, seizures of books and computers and a sinister "Anarchist Terrorism" charge. The reasons given by the judge for their continued detention include the possession of certain books, "the production of publications and forms of communication", and the fact that the defendants "used emails with extreme security measures, such as the RISE UP server". ---- If the Spanish state think they should be able to read anarchists's emails, why don't we send them some mail directly telling them exactly what we think of their repressive policies. ...

Do we live in an economy or in a society? Last night Europe's central bankers sent the clear message they expect us to be the well behaved slaves of an economy rather than equals in a society. Less then two weeks after the Greeks had elected an anti-austerity government the ECB in effect told them they intended to block the promises of change that government was elected on. ---- Last night the ECB stopped the use of Greek sovereign bonds as collateral in borrowing from the ECB. In doing so they were sending a clear message that they expect the new Syriza/ANEL government in Greece to completely abandon the anti-austerity promises they were elected on. If they fail to obey the unelected central bankers then this policy change was intended to indicate a willingness to allow the collapse of the Greek banking system, something that would have disastrous effects in ...

It is now 180 years since the silk workers revolt in Lyon in France in 1834. This and the preceding revolt there in 1831 were some of the first workers uprisings at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and the development of the working class. ---- Lyon had become the silk weaving centre of France by the beginning of the 1830s. More than half the population was employed in the silk industry and silk workers were known as canuts. In 1831 the production of silk in Lyon was still organised in a pre-industrial way. 1,400 bankers and traders ruled the industry. Below them were 8,000 craftsmen who in their turn employed 30,000 apprentices who generally lived, ate and slept in the homes of the craftsmen. Women were employed at a lower wage, as were the apprentices and errand boys. Most of the production took place in craftsmen's homes with only one factory employing 600 ...

"This book questions the status of political enmity in contemporary societies. The game of what is self-designate today as " democracy " is to maintain the denial of conflict and division by establishing a general flow regime where all the bumps are soluble in a well-regulated communication. It is to convince us that there is only 'social partners' simply separated by misunderstandings or differences for yield to share the sense of common interest. (...) In proposing a crossing of different figures in which the question arose of the relationship with the enemy, the practices of enmity (...), this book attempts to return to contemporary political thinking that nagging question: under what conditions and for what purpose can we talk with our enemies - or should we refrain from doing so?

One of the most important news of the end of 2014 was the simultaneous appearance of Barack Obama and Raul Castro on television screens in the United States and Cuba, to announce "urbi et orbi" thaw relations between the two governments. ---- While no one could imagine that such actions may occur, the two presidents have organized this event Wednesday, December 17 from the capitals of their respective countries, launching the first step towards normalization of their public relations after 53 years "Cold War" and "economic blockade". ---- As we know, this "gesture" is the result of lengthy negotiations that were started in 2012 by two officials (Ricardo Zuniga, for the United States, Josefina Vidal, Cuba) negotiations held in the greatest secrecy order to "reconcile the positions" on issues that each government considers "essential." ...

Under the pretext of the fight against terrorism it is added to an already long list of 14 laws enacted since 1986, which circumscribes becoming over our individual and fundamental freedoms. ---- Certainly France seems to quickly get used to what had been proclaimed the exceptional start, as Vigipirate originally established in 1978 and would have "due" disappear and in fact persisted, making now "commonplace" the presence of armed soldiers in the stations and airports. The new law also does not exception and will not go away when the "jihadist threat" of Syria and Iraq will be no more. The old recipe of fear still allows the extension of the "surveillance and punishment" of the state. This climate of suspicion kept away people's legitimate ...
