The Fair Coop. The Earth cooperative for a fair economy

Activists from various fields of alternative economy like Enric Duran (Robin of the Banks), Cooperativa Integral Catalana, Michael Bauwens, P2P Foundation, or Amir Taaki, , bitcoin developer, launched this September 17, after months of networking, a draft global economic system based on cooperation, ethics, solidarity, redistribution north-south, and justice in economic relations.

The Fair Coop is a global cooperative attempt to become independent of the “old economic system” based on central banks and fiat currencies by a new currency reference, faircoin, to promote the global commons and decentralized economies. .

Fair Coop
The date, 17S coincides symbolically with six years of the campaign “We can live without capitalism,” and five years since the campaign with more than a hundred data points in the Spanish state to create alternative economy networks by inviting people to abandon their bank accounts. It is also a step in the “Comprehensive Revolution”,which in the words of Duran, “aims to give visibility to a self-organized movement that is working to build  other possible worlds

They are not squatters: they are Nazis

alternative Housing Office Madrid
On 18 August, the neo-Nazi group Social Republican Movement (MSR) announced on social media their entry into an abandoned building in Madrid’s Tetuan barrio and fheir intention to turn it into a social center for  ‘those in need’  provided they were white and of Spanish nationality. .

Opening a such center in the district with the largest migrant population of Madrid and the opposition it generated among neighbors attracted media attention, especially after the massive demonstration against held the same day as opening of the center, on August 30.

Since then, it has been common to see the press referred to the center as a squatted buildingand members of the neo-Nazi group as “squatters” in an error which is then repeated in social networks. The center is equated with the squatting movement, which has always had among its main objectives the recovery of abandoned homes to become social centers and buildings.

Emma Goldmanhttp://thefreeonline.wordpress.com
en Castellano más abajo.


Dear old Emma Goldman, throughout her long and prolific career within the
anarchist movement of the twentieth century, produced many political texts to which activists return much more frequently than to other anarchist thinkers. Usually these texts are criticized by leftist feminism for being just what they are: anarchist harangues from on the barricade itself. Here we take the thought of Emma Goldman not uncritically as libertarian gospel, but to make it live in your discussion today, and to rescue Emma’s special ability to put her finger right on the spot, in the wound of mainstream feminism of her day, while at the same time opposing the practices of her own fellow militants of the anarchist movement,  whip in hand.

NATO has been agressively ‘marching east’ since the USSR fell, making new bases and Nuclear missile sites. Financing protest in states supporting Russia. Now Russia has said ‘ENOUGH’ and the two biggest nuclear powers are playing a lunatic macho game of chicken, as thousands of Ukrainians are killed and wounded.

Don’t expect to see a bullfight when you trip to Barcelona, the last stadium is closed and the ”sport” banned. In fact for years it was mainly kept going by the tourist industry.

The popular bumper sticker in Madrid is the bull, representing, for the Catalans,  cruel bullying disguised as ‘heroic’ sexist posturing.

Barcelona  cars on the other hand feature the Catalan donkey, symbolizing just a nice but stubborn animal, and maybe the ability to laugh at themselves.

In San Sebastian of the Kings, (real name Donostia in Basque) the battle against bullfighting is in full swing.  Last week there was a new demo against, which was attacked by pro-bullfight thugs, sending one girl to hospital. (see report below) View full article »

Mexican Judge Departs From Script, Turns Monsanto’s Mexican Dream Into Legal Nightmare

The U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto is long accustomed to getting its own way. Through a combination of back-channel lobbying, opaque political funding and revolving-door politics, the multinational agrochemical and biotechnology corporation has subverted, corrupted and infiltrated the elected governments of countries around the world, from the smallest and poorest to the biggest and richest.

However, if recent events in Europe and Latin America are any indication, the tide may well be subtly turning against the interests of Monsanto and its fellow GMO oligopolies and in the favor of independent food growers and consumers.

    In  summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change….

    …..At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades. This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30……

~~Description~~

What is Anonymous?

Anonymous is not a group, it is not a person.
It is an IDEA. Specifically it is the idea that all of us deserve freedom, freedom of thought, of speech, of expression of knowledge, of assembly and of belief. The freedom to determine the course and destination of our own lives.
If you share this idea then you are one of us.
You have likely heard many things about Anonymous, some of them are true and some of them are not. We are not terrorists and we are not violent.

We are citizens of the World who bear witness the tyranny, oppression and censorship.

We are activists who seek to change the system and end the cycle of corruption. We seek to create transparency in…
