Christy Moore sings ‘Viva la Quince Brigada’, live in Scotland


en castellano más abajo

“Viva la Quinta Brigada” (listed as “Viva la Quince Brigada” in later recordings) is a Christy Moore song about the Irishmen who fought in the Spanish Civil War against Franco. The title was inspired by a Spanish song about the war, ‘Viva la Quince Brigada‘.

Moore wrote this song choosing to focus on the Irish socialist volunteers (who in later years became known as the Connolly Column) who were a small contingent within the 15th International Brigade.

The song was inspired by Spanish Civil War veteran Michael O’Riordan‘s book Connolly Column. Continue reading Christy Moore sings ‘Viva la Quince Brigada’, live in Scotland

Dakota Access Pipeline Vandalism Highlights Sabotage Risks

RED POWER MEDIA

In this Feb. 13, 2017, aerial file photo shows the site where the final phase of the Dakota Access pipeline will take place with boring equipment routing the pipeline underground and across Lake Oahe to connect with the existing pipeline in Emmons County near Cannon Ball, N.D. (Tom Stromme/The Bismarck Tribune via AP, File)

Pipeline sabotage happens more frequently in Canada than the U.S.

(AP) 03/22/17 – The developer of the Dakota Access pipeline has reported “recent co-ordinated physical attacks” on the much-protested line, just as it’s almost ready to carry oil.

Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners didn’t give details, but experts say Dakota Access and the rest of the nearly 3 million miles of pipeline that deliver natural gas and petroleum in the U.S. are vulnerable to acts of sabotage.

It’s a threat that ETP takes seriously enough that it has asked a court to shield details such as spill…

Putting back the Carbon inThe Soil.. a Solution to Climate Change

 If capitalist agro business could be abolished then the climate crisis could be solved and food production increased, just by changing our farming methods to lock carbon into the soil.

The Soil Solution to Climate Change…   Film Review

This informational film, based on the French 4 per 1,000 initiative, proposes an ancient form of carbon sequestration* as an alternative to risky technological methods of carbon sequestration. There is strong scientific consensus that to prevent catastrophic global warming, atmospheric CO2 levels must be reduced from 400 parts per million (ppm) to 350 ppm.

The 4 per 1,000 initiative encourages all UN member countries to increase the carbon in their soils by 0.4% per year by transitioning from industrial agriculture – which tends to strip soil of carbon – to more traditional practices that tend to replenish soil carbon (and simultaneously increase yields: see Organic and Sustainable Farming Increases Yields by 79% or More).

Guide to Collective Direct Action: time for Rebellion that Wins

From CrimethInc.via  

by CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective  ..  Direct action, simply put, means cutting out the middleman: solving problems yourself rather than petitioning the authorities or relying on external institutions. Any action that sidesteps regulations and representation to accomplish goals directly is direct action—it includes everything from blockading airports to helping refugees escape to safety and organizing programs to liberate your community from reliance on capitalism. Here we present a step-by-step guide to organizing and carrying out direct action, from the first planning stages to the debrief at the end, including legal support, media strategy, and proper security.

Direct action guide 1

There are countless scenarios in which you might want to employ direct action. Continue reading Guide to Collective Direct Action: time for Rebellion that Wins

Asli is the154th journalist jailed as Turkey heads for full Fascism

Now is the best moment to resist the slide into Fascism and
Genocide in Turkey. President Erdogan is already a ‘de facto’ dictator, already showing symptoms of megalomania. Buoyed by a far right populist party, a racist anti Kurdish blitz and the biggest purge of suspected opposition since Josef Stalin, Erdogan will hold a referendum on April 16th to grant him total power. Who dares to  vote against him? After that we will have a militant Fascist State in Europe. Erdogan will have ”legitimacy” to bring back the death penalty for those suspected of insulting him, and embark on a serious genocide of the millions of progressive left and Kurdish youth, etc..
