Taylor Report: Ukraine on the Grand Chessboard, Segment 1

Radio 4 All - Thu, 02/13/2014 - 22:43
Rick Rozoff discusses NATO's "Eastern Partnership" program, which targets ex-Soviet countries, including Ukraine, for military and economic integration with the U.S. What is happening in Ukraine is "a phase beyond" the first wave of colour revolutions, and is something qualitatively different.

On union scabbing

Some quick thoughts on the need to respect picket lines and the challenge of the anti-strike laws and multi-union workplaces.

As I detailed all the way back in October, a civil service senior management union has taken a stronger stance over key issues in HM Revenue & Customs than the 'left wing' union PCS.

Palestina-Israele: ancora una settimana di azioni unitarie contro l'occupazione e le deportazioni

Anarkismo.net - Thu, 02/13/2014 - 17:19
Report del 13.02.14
La lotta del villaggio di Ein Hijleh è continuata fino a giovedì notte. Le forze di stato israeliane hanno perseguitato gli attivisti per tutta la settimana ma, a causa della crescente pressione internazionale, si sono astenuti dal procedere ad arresti persino durante gli sgomberi, limitandosi a qualche breve fermo. Invece, non hanno risparmiato di picchiare e di ferirne a dozzine. Gli effetti montanti della campagna B.D.S. hanno diffuso il panico tra l'elite israeliana che ha iniziato a fare pressioni sul governo per ottemperare alle richieste imperialiste. I media israeliani ne parlano quotidianamente. Continua la lotta dal basso in corso, sebbene non ancora come un tempo. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/26731]

Anarchisme et Antispécisme

Anarkismo.net - Thu, 02/13/2014 - 10:22
Analyse de la CGA concernant l'antispécisme
Par la présente déclaration, nous affirmons que l'antispécisme (que nous définirons plus en détail ci-après) n'est pas une simple éthique individuelle mais une idéologie étrangère à l'anarchisme, et que les deux idéologies, bien qu'utilisant des concepts et un vocabulaire parfois similaires, leur donnent un contenu radicalement différent qui en font deux idéologies contradictoires et incompatibles.

Réponses anarchistes à la crise écologique

Anarkismo.net - Thu, 02/13/2014 - 10:15
Texte d'orientation de la CGA sur les questions environementales
La crise de développement du capitalisme et ses conséquences sociales ont éclipsé la crise environnementale, pourtant plus que jamais d’actualité. De notre point de vue, cette crise peut se décliner en trois points principaux : le réchauffement climatique global, la dégradation des écosystèmes et l'amenuisement des ressources naturelles.

Palestine-Israel: Just another week of joint actions against the occupation and transfer*

Anarkismo.net - Thu, 02/13/2014 - 10:02
The struggle at Ein Hiljeh continued till Thursday night. Israeli state forces harassed the activists throughout the week but due to the mounting world pressure refrained from arresting activists even during the eviction, only detaining a few of them for a short time. Instead, they did beat and injure dozens of them. The mounting effects of the B.D.S. have started to panic the Israeli elite and a significant part of it is starting to pressurise the government into yielding to the imperial demands. The Israeli media contemplates it daily. The ongoing grassroots struggle continues, though is not invigorated again yet. The struggle against the crawling transfer - mainly in the Jordan valley, the south of Hebron hills and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem - continues. The anarchist communist organization Ahdut is increasing its involvement in the joint struggle against the occupation with the Bil'in grassroots popular activists.

Thank You From Recently Released Antifa Prisoner John Tucker (Tinley Park Five)

Denver Anarchist Black Cross - Thu, 02/13/2014 - 01:36

After twenty months of imprisonment, antifascist political prisoner John Tucker is free. John is the second of the Tinley Park Five to be released and he’s written a thank you letter to his supporters. The letter reads:
“These past 20 months have been an ordeal to say the least. From court drama to safety issues to just the woes of incarceration itself, this has been a trying process. Yet, even within the darkness of a cell, cut off from the world, some light could still be seen. Your letters, donation,s and noisy solidarity were things of beauty to eyes forced to view the despair of a broken system day after day and eyes that could not help but watch as any glimmer of hope faded from so many youths as they were dehumanized by the tortuous conditions in which they were forced to dwell. Your zines brought much needed and often obscured information into a citadel of ignorance and fear, your books lifted the weight of monotonous oppression, and your donations aided in the welfare of so many with nothing but the state to care for them. A parcel of food here or some cosmetics there so often mean the difference between another night spent hungry or unclean and a good night’s rest, and never doubt the weight of one’s spirit in a time of need. Sadness, loneliness, and a lack of basic human needs often crush that vital spark necessary for a meaningful, productive, life and sadly press those “corrected” into a self-defeating cycle of unchecked violence or harsh drug use.

For so much I am thankful for the supporters, but of greatest importance was the solidarity. Your constant stream of letters and cards not only kept myself sane, but also gave tangible, physical proof of solidarity which revealed the tremendous weight of the conviction of people from the real world who likewise are willing to make a stand against the far too often accepted evils of the world, to an incarcerated populace who had often not heard of such people before. The attention brought by the constant stream of mail peaked curiosity and drove many to question what was going on. This in turn lead to discussions, which in turn lead to some longer discussions that I hope have made a difference in at least a few lives over the course of my stint of incarceration.

Now that I am free I am no less thankful for everything I have received from our amazing support network, which is in itself a testament to the will of a people willing to sacrifice to make a change. A support network populated by good hearted, noble people who have often suffered first hand under the weight of unchecked and unopposed malice. Thank you once again for everything you have done and continue to do; you are indeed an amazing people.

In Solidarity,
John Tucker”

While John is now out of prison, he undoubtedly needs the kind of support that those nearest to him can provide. At the same time, three of the Tinley Park Five remain imprisoned. Please take this time to write to them. Their addresses are:
