Partido X chats with Occupy Wall Street: Revolutionary Innovation Happening Now in Spain! LOS "INDIGNADOS" ACUERDAN EN ASAMBLEA IR A LAS 20:00 DESDE ATOCHA HASTA SOLby OccupyWallSt

As European parliamentary elections approach in May, a revolutionary citizen network in Spain is emerging to challenge the business as usual approach to electoral politics.

Under the banner of the Partido X: a Citizen Network, a new project conceived around the 15M constellation, the people are putting together a new structure for political participation that seeks to channel the 99%’s thirst for meaningful action, while at the same time undermining the corrosive grip traditional political parties have had in Spain over the last decades.  Continue reading

The_East_2013_film_posterWe will counterattack three corporations for their worldwide terrorism in the next six months.” So declares the eco-anarchist group “The East” near the beginning of Zal Batmanglij’s new film of the same name. With this politically tinged suspense and action film, Batmangilij seeks to break the mold of the usual formulaic summer blockbusters. The director of earlier sci-fi inflected dramas, Batmanglij appears to want to surf the frenzy of Occupy Wall Street and the Tar Sands Blockade that grabbed headlines. The film delves into questions around justice, violence, community, commitment, and ultimately asks the viewer, Which side are you on?

Manchester, Houston: An Environmental Battleground

no Tar Sands31 Dec

On Thursday, December 27th, in Houston, TX, residents of Manchester gathered with allies to issue new demands on Valero. “We demand to know what you are forcing us to breathe!  ¡Exigimos saber lo que nos están obligando a respirar!”

The community came together in a celebration of unity and strength.  Manchester is populated almost completely by Latin@s, and surrounded on all sides by industry.

A massive Valero refinery looms over the community’s only park and its smokestacks poison the people who live there 24 hours a day 365 days a year.  Manchester is plagued by a long list of diseases and ailments including asthma, respiratory disease and inflammation, infertility, birth defects, and a myriad of deadly cancers.  The National Disease Clusters Alliance reports (pg. 2) that children living within two miles of the Houston Ship Channel have a 56% higher likelihood of developing leukemia than those who live more than ten miles away.

The Revolution is Already Here

In #globalrevolution on 5 November 2012 at 14:30

Occupy the Comms creates the potential for popular media to compete with corporate media, and eventually to obliterate them. It’s a new anonymous site where groups can securely share instant news, live streaming by mobiles and discussions. It aims to dynamite the lying hierarchical mass media. tomorro

Dear people,

Over twenty years ago, CNN brought us live war in the living room. And not just war, they brought every kind of live news, from all corners of the globe. Television had turned into a real time ‘window on the world’…. Continue reading

Revolution? Nothing to lose but our debts!

The idea of the “99 percent” managed to do something that no one has done in the United States since the Great Depression: revive the concept of social class as a political issue. What made this possible was a subtle change in the very nature of class power in this country, which, I have come to realize, has everything to do with debt. David Graeber

As a member of the team that came up with the slogan “We Are the 99 Percent,” I can attest that we weren’t thinking of inequality or even simply class but specifically of class power. It’s now clear that the 1 percent are the creditors: those who are able to turn their wealth into political influence and their political influence back into wealth again. The overriding imperative of government policy is to do whatever it takes, using all available tools—fiscal, monetary, political, even military—to keep stock prices from falling. Continue reading

17 a 24 Sept..Semana Mundial de acciones contra MONSANTO

Las empresas y los políticos nos envenenan poco a poco. -

Hace decadas que lo sabemos, pero el poder y dinero del Capitalismo ha hecho que se lo ignora..La hérbicida estrella de Monsanto, el Roundup, causa el cancer, y también  los cultivos tratados con ella, sobre todo el maíz transgénico. España es casi el unico país de la EU que deja plantar el maíz transgénico, así que probablemente el ganado y nosotros mismos se enferman ya. Continue reading

We strive to connect the dots between seemingly isolated conflicts, using worker-driven, creative action to draw attention to the common struggles of people across the city. From Twitter storms to bike swarms, we’re reinventing the way people gather to speak truth to power.

Due to the ”crisis” and the Libor loan rate fixing crimes, millions of us have lost or are in danger of losing our homes and/or liberty, while the 1% have moved up to $600 trillions of our credit to tax havens. Amazing but tyrue!

For me the best solution is community real wealth sharing, without money or nations. But this may be some time in coming.

Meanwhile if you’re trapped in debt here’s some ideas for fighting back.

1) Sue the banks, maybe an idea for a large group of pissed off victims. They took billions by rigging the Libor rates. We want it all back.

2)Go public. Don’t blame yourself, ask neighbourhood and occupy groups for help. Because its they who are robbing you!…….. Continue reading

Denver Anarchist Black Cross Statement on the mass murder at the Aurora Century 16 Movie Complex

by denverabc

The writing of this statement was prompted by rumors circulating the internet that the person alleged to have shot over 70 people in an Aurora movie theater on July 20 was a member of the Denver Anarchist Black Cross. These claims are patently and maliciously false. James Holmes is not a member of the Denver Anarchist Black Cross, nor is he known to us in any way. It should not have to be said, but we will say it anyway: The members of Denver ABC along with any anarchists we have ever met, would never condone the calculated and intentional killing of random people. We are in fact actively and daily engaged in work to stop such tragic and horrific acts of violence at a systemic level. Continue reading
