On Wed 22 Oct thousands of women went on social and work strike in the biggest action yet of the Vaga de Totes ( Womens strike of everybody) movement.Vaga de totes (Strike of everyone) is a collective of women “tired of social, economic and legal politics that threaten seriously our rights, our dignity and our freedom” as we can read in their manifesto.

Feminism is the radical idea that we women are people

Feminism is the radical idea that we women are people

They talk about: the conservative laws on abortion and assisted reproduction that want to control the woman’s body;

the femicide ; the cuts in health care, social assistence and education;

the repression; the immigration laws and the health care apartheid and – last but not least – the laboral reform that increases the gender discrimination. Women in our society, being responsable quite entirely for care tasks, are now working harder and longer for balancing cuts and privatization of social services out .

Smashy Smashy: Nine Historical Triumphs to Make You Rethink Property Destruction

Flag-burning and property destruction in Ferguson are part of a long, proud history

After Officer Darren Wilson shot teenager Michael Brown dead this summer, Ferguson, Missouri, erupted with outrage, compassion and street protests. The response from many corners of the commentariat was predictable: condemnations of those “bad elements” among the protesters who resorted to property destruction as their demonstration of resistance. After two more high-profile incidents of cops shooting St. Louis black men to death, protesters even burned Old Glory, eliciting still more scandalized gasps from the usual crowd.

    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……

London: Grow Heathrow eviction notice 8am, Friday 15 Aug

heathrow-evictionflyer-400x567

On Friday 15th August at 8am, bailiffs will make their first attempt to evict Grow Heathrow (previously here and here). Four and a half years after the abandoned greenhouses in the middle of Heathrow Airport’s proposed third runway were occupied by local residents together with activists, Heathrow villagers are organising again to resist airport expansion that’s ruled out by climate science.

Residents of the 700+ homes a third runway would destroy have asked to be trained to protect their own homes. On Thursday 14th, the day before the bailiffs visit, there will be talks and workshops on how to peacefully resist the eviction and on how ordinary people successfully shelved plans for a noisy third runway. At 8am on Friday 15th, hopefully you can help protect our home from the County Court bailiffs, ready to do the same for other homes threatened by airport expansion. Grow Heathrow has been described as the ‘heart of the village’ by BBC News and ‘inspirational’ by the local MP. We are still trying to buy the land instead of having bailiffs at our home.

”There are always oil spills in the Amazon. Because the criminal predator oil companies care nothing for the environment, the health of the people or even the genocide of whole indigenous nations. this has been going on for 50 years, the biggest crimes being the 1000’s of spills and abandoned chemical lakes created over 30 years by Texaco (now Chevron) which even today uses it’s massive wealth to defend its impunity. Today while science proves that 60% of fossil fuels will have to stay in the ground to save us from catastrophic climate change, the race to extract continues worse than ever, with the connivance of ourselves, the 1st world fossil fuel junkies!

CUNINICO, Peru – On the last day of June, Roger Mangía Vega watched an oil slick and a mass of dead fish float past this tiny Kukama Indian community and into the Marañón River, a major tributary of the Amazon.

Community leaders called the emergency number for Petroperu, the state-run operator of the 845-kilometer pipeline that pumps crude oil from the Amazon over the Andes Mountains to a port on Peru’s northern coast Continue reading

from Anarchist Black Cross (Cruz Negra Anarquista) with thanks

Last 11th of July registered the houses and arrested three people who are in the NO TAV fight in Italy. Two were arrested in Milan and another one in Lecce.

The TAV is an European project which consist on the creation of a high speed line from Lisbon to Kiev. It is in 1995 when the people from Val di Susa (Italy) start an important fight in opposition to its construction. In 2008, the fight is radicalised due to the militarization of the valley and the extension of the movement among other cities in Italy. In the 9th of December 2013, Chiara, Claudio and Niccollò are imprisioned in Turin and Mattia in Milan, accusing them of participating in an action against the construction of the TAV in the 13th May 2013 night. These four people are arrested under high security as they are considered terrorist.

July 2014 By Noam Chomsky, Truthout | Op-Ed

The front page of The New York Times on June 26 featured a photo of women mourning a murdered Iraqi.

He is one of the innumerable victims of the ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) campaign in which the Iraqi army, armed and trained by the U.S. for many years, quickly melted away, abandoning much of Iraq to a few thousand militants, hardly a new experience in imperial history.

Right above the picture is the newspaper’s famous motto: “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”

There is a crucial omission. The front page should display the words of the Nuremberg judgment of prominent Nazis – words that must be repeated until they penetrate general consciousness: Aggression is “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”

All that media bullshit about US fracking boom was just hype to finance rip-off scams, soon leaving dead bankrupt wells, poisoned land and water and less and less loot for the scammers.

richviolence

The US’s drive to become a top global oil and gas exporter by fracking has been blown wide open by a 96% write-down of California’s Monterey Shale – meant to hold two thirds of the US’s shale oil. How long before the whole enterprise is exposed as another monstrous Ponzi scheme?

The US oil industry is also due to spend $2.8 trillion by 2035 just to stay even whereas the Middle East will spend a third less, produce three times more in the same time.

Time we STOPPED maintaining millions of swimming pools as deadly chlorine traps for every organism that enters them.

Paramos YA de mantener millones de piscinas esteriles con clor que son trampas mortales para cada organismo que se mete dentro.

natural pool6A Natural Swimming Pool is one that has clear water without using chemicals. These pools rely entirely on the plants and animals to condition the water.

Una piscina natural es una piscina que tiene agua clara sin necesidad de utilizar productos químicos. Estas piscinas se basan enteramente en las plantas y los animales para acondicionar el agua.

This is so effective that this pool has been tested and shown to be of drinking water quality. Also, through the continual natural “cleaning process” the pool water never needs changing, saving water.

Esto es tan eficaz que  ha sido probado y demostrado que la calidad del agua de la piscina es potable. También, a través del proceso de limpieza continuo natural, el agua de la piscina nunca necesita ser cambiado, ahorriendo mucha agua.

In the summer of 2009, on a highway in Peru known as Devil’s Curve: everything went wrong. For months, indigenous groups had protested new laws by then President Alan Garcia opening up the Amazon to deregulated logging, fossil fuels, and other extractive industries as a part of free trade agreements with the U.S. But the protests came to a bloody head on June 5th when police clashed with activists, leaving at least 32 dead and 200 injured.
