The Solidarity Economy as a Strategy for Revolution

reblogged with thanks from:   http://www.corfizz.com/story.html

money free revolution

There are three roads to revolution. Some focus on seizing state power, others on revolutionary expropriation. The third strategy is to think seriously about how we would actually like to organise our lives and then to start putting these ideas into practice, constructing the new world directly, as a parallel alternative to capitalism.

Let’s be clear that the solidarity economy already exists and people are already fully engaged in the approach that I am describing. I am not messianically opening a new revolutionary pathway; I am merely reporting on a fruitful line of action, introducing it to newcomers, as well as offering some ideas about how it could develop to those who are interested.

Living Without Money      Post 1

 

by Julie Liardet..    GENEVA – People strolling, music, smiles, bursts of laughter. Customers walk between clothes and trinkets, homegrown zucchini and children’s games, spread on tables or on the ground. A neighbor has brought his electric razor; another has just found a book by French sociologist Marcel Mauss.

This kind of flea-market-with-veggies could be coming to your neighborhood soon. With a twist: here everything is 100% free.

The gratiferia (free fair) concept originally comes from Argentina and then expanded to neighboring countries and all of Latin America. The idea was quickly taken up in the U.S. and Canada, and this year, it has arrived in the Old World. Sales and swaps are completely forbidden at gratiferias. Everything must be in good condition, and of course, a bit of civic sense is required. Do not show up with a van and load up everything in sight. This free fair aims at “liberation from materialism,” with the goal of leaving behind “the oppression of the economic system.”gratis   momey free

Ariel Rodriguez Bosio, the brains behind the gratiferia, has posted a YouTube video entitled Continue reading

We are writing from the squatted mansion /Mas Castelló/, near to
Orriols, Catalonia. 2ddded73982e4449926b4d7a2915aa20_XL

On the back of the energy and enthusiasm of the camp against the MAT
that was held in Fellines, we have squatted a space to give the struggle
against the MAT continuity, creating a meeting place here we can share
experiences of struggles and collective living that breaks away from the
models imposed on us by consumer society. Continue reading

repsol mataNoruega  se retirará de Repsol , por su maltrato a pueblos indígenas ?

ONG afirma que Consejo de Ética de Noruega recomienda añadir Repsol a la ‘lista negra’ , pero el Ministerio no se mueve

in English below translation thefreeonline.

Hace algunos años , el Consejo de Ética que da recomendaciones al Fondo de Pensiones Global de Noruega ( GPFG ) comenzó a investigar la compañía de petróleo y gas Repsol . El objetivo declarado del consejo es evaluar ” si la inversión en empresas específicas es incompatible con las pautas éticas establecidas [del Fondo]  antes de hacer recomendaciones al Ministerio de Hacienda, y la razón por la que estaba interesado en Repsol fue a causa de sus operaciones en una parte remota de la Amazonía del Perú habitada por indígenas que viven en ” aislamiento voluntario ” que no tienen contacto regular con nadie más.

ANNOYING BACKGROUND MUSIC ON AN IMPORTANT CALL TO ACTION

poison airOutdoor air pollution causes more than two-and-a-half million deaths each year, a study has suggested – the equivalent of more than 2 Chernobyl disasters annually, with over 10 times that number of us suffering chronic health problems from poisoned air.

It calculated that, each year, 470,000 people died as a result of ozone and 2.1 million deaths were linked to fine particulate matter. Air pollution increased respiratory and heart disease risks, with the young, elderly and infirm most vulnerable.

The findings appear in the Environmental Research Letters journal.

Since the Industrial Revolution unscrupulous capitalists have knowingly exposed the public to deadly air pollution to increase their profits, knowing that it’s practically impossible to prove they cause the slow agonizing deaths.

But not any more!

Soon victims and their families will be able to take Court cases against polluting industries and the oil and vehicle industries. Continue reading

Not only to commemorate his birthday, but to denounce the problems that the May 15, 2011 led to the so-called ‘indignados’ camps in dozens of Spanish cities are still present today. As usual in this movement, its philosophy that the street is of citizens leads them to not communicate officially to the authorities these marches, which will continue throughout the month of May.
