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.
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……
But this time it could easily be true, see here:http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-05-13/russia-holds-de-dollarization-meeting-china-iran-willing-drop-usd-bilateral-tradeFirst of all little macho dictator Putin is well pissed off that he and fellow corrupt billionaires got sanctioned and has unveiled a decree that can force companies to trade in rubles not dollars.As you may know the whole capitalist juggling act that lets the USA print and borrow trillions only works because the world has been forced for over 60 years to trade for oil in US dollars that it first has to buy.Many say threats to upset this system were behind the Iraq slaughter and the anti Iran campaign.Now there seem to be real indications that Russia and China will finally do a deal in their own currencies, which could ignite the chain reaction and bring Wall Street crashing down!Really!?But hang on a minute.. Don’t the Chinese own half the US debt so they wouldn’t want a collapse.My guess is this is just Putin’s petty power play, maybe a small percentage of trade might be done in rubles, just to scare the Americans into backing off with their sanctions.Much as we would love to see the collapse of capìtalism this looks more like a bluff gambit than mutual economic slaughter.an extract from the article:
”Of course, the success of Moscow’s campaign to switch its trading to rubles or other regional currencies will depend on the willingness of its trading partners to get rid of the dollar. Sources cited by Politonline.ru mentioned two countries who would be willing to support Russia: Iran and China. Given that Vladimir Putin will visit Beijing on May 20, it can be speculated that the gas and oil contracts that are going to be signed between Russia and China will be denominated in rubles and yuan, not dollars.
In other words, from 20th May look out for not only the announcement of the Russia-China “holy grail” gas agreement described previously here, but its financial terms, which now appears virtually certain will be settled exclusively in RUB and CNY. Not USD.”

Who would have thought that a relatively conservative city like Burgos, Spain would have detonated a string of spontaneous and massive protest across the country? Over the past four days, social media networks across the globe have exploded with the hashtag #Gamonal and #EfectoGamonal, virilizing this small town’s struggle against rising property prices and corrupt municipal dealings to international attention, and along the way reawaken national indignation that has been simmering in Spain for years.
