Palestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria prosegue più sicura e senza illusioni - Sun, 02/09/2014 - 21:10
Report del 04.02.14
All'inizio la lotta unitaria si focalizzava sul muro della separazione. C'erano nuove adesioni e molti villaggi lasciavano la lotta tradizionale. La speranza di una diffusa ed ampia lotta popolare non si era realizzata, ma stavano iniziando nuove lotte che facevano rete con azioni di lotta unitarie più sporadiche. Recentemente la rete delle lotte popolari unitarie ha promosso azioni cadenzate e quella di Ein Hajla è la seconda. La lotta incessante ha attratto l'attenzione internazionale e dato la base essenziale per la campagna B.D.S. La lotta persistente ha visto i suoi semi nel fermento sotterraneo che può erompere senza avvisaglie nelle condizioni appropriate. La persistenza e l'avvicinarsi della valanga B.D.S. danno energia agli attivisti più lungimiranti. []

Η θεωρητικοποίηση των ιστορικών εμπειριών - Sun, 02/09/2014 - 10:29
Η ιστορία είναι ένα ακόμη πεδίο μάχης μεταξύ των πολλών που υπάρχουν στον ταξικό πόλεμο. Δεν πρόκειται απλώς για ένα ζήτημα ανάκτησης της μνήμης των ταξικών αγώνων του παρελθόντος αλλά και μια μάχη για την ιστορία από επαναστατική σκοπιά, δηλαδή από την σκοπιά της υπεράσπισης των ιστορικών συμφερόντων του προλεταριάτου, η οποία δεν μπορεί να είναι άλλη από την θεωρητικοποίηση των ιστορικών εμπειριών του διεθνούς εργατικού κινήματος.

NATO 3 Not Guilty of Terrorism! Convicted of Possession of Incendiary Device Charges and Facing 30 Years

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Sat, 02/08/2014 - 16:53

On Friday, February 7, 2014, the jury in the NATO 3 trial returned its
verdicts against Brent Betterly, Jared Chase, and Brian Jacob Church.
These three had been held in Cook County Jail in Chicago since they were
arrested on May 16, 2012. They faced trumped up, politically motivated
terrorism, conspiracy, and arson charges because of their perceived
politics and political activities (mostly through the Occupy movement).

The cops and prosecutors had demonized them from the beginning as
violent anarchists and domestic terrorists who needed to be locked away
for decades because of their nefarious intents to terrorize the city of
Chicago. We knew all along that they had been targeted as part of a
broad campaign of state repression against activists, particularly
anarchists. We knew all along that they had been singled out to send a
message to us all that any dissent will be severely punished, that any
step outside of the bounds of the mainstream power structures will be
met with fierce consequences.

The jury did not buy the state’s lies about our comrades being
terrorists. They acquitted the NATO 3 of all the terrorism charges:
conspiracy to commit terrorism, material support for terrorism,
possession of an incendiary device with the intent to commit terrorism,
possession of an incendiary device with the knowledge that someone else
intended to commit terrorism. They also acquitted them of the
solicitation to commit arson charge.

Yet the jury played its role in the criminal legal system by finding
them all guilty of possession of an incendiary device with the intent to
commit arson and possession of an incendiary device with the knowledge
that another intended to commit arson. They also found them all guilty
of mob action, a lower-level crime that was offered to the jury as an
alternative to the conspiracy to commit terrorism and material support
for terrorism charges. The possession charges carry a maximum sentence
of 30 years in prison.

We can celebrate the victory over the state’s worst lies and their
defeat on their own battlefield, but we must not forget that these three
individuals are still being made to pay the price for our resistance. We
do not know how long they will continue to be held captive by our
enemies, but we do know that we will continue to stand in solidarity
with them and fight for their freedom until each of them walk out of the
prison gate.

Free the NATO 3!
Free all political prisoners and prisoners of war!
Destroy all prisons!
Smash the state!

The NATO 3 will be sentenced on Friday, February 28 at 2pm. We will send
word in the near future about ways you can show your solidarity for
them, so stay tuned. In the meantime, we are asking for donations for
their support needs in case they will be kept from us for many years to
come. They also need to
hear from comrades around the world that they are not alone!

NO al TTIP - Sat, 02/08/2014 - 08:58
Quale mercato, quale democrazia, quale uscita dalla crisi?
Il Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (Ttip), il trattato in corso di ratifica che vorrebbe creare tra Usa e Ue la più consistente area di libero scambio mai tentata nel pianeta (coprirebbe circa il 60% delle economie mondiali) sta per essere ratificato in questi giorni e deciderà delle nostre vite se non nasce una mobilitazione dal basso per contrastarlo.
