Announcement by Enric Duran from Exile
Comunicat d’Enric Duran des de l’Exili 23-04-19

Today April 23 is the 7th anniversary that went far from home, resisting a “national” order of detention for the action of denunciation and expropriation of the unjust and stingy banking system, which I made public in 2008, and for which still calls for 8 years in prison, although the banks reported to the state coffers 120000 times more than what I had to do to them and no prosecutor’s office has asked for criminal charges for that.

What Comes After Capitalism?.. A Real Proposal

Earth’s
Cooperative ecosystem
for a fair economy

Faircoop Beginner guide

# What really moves us

FairCity02_May17okokA deep and comprehensive transformation of all parts of society, including its values and structure.

The new, self-managed society is based on autonomy and the abolition of all forms of domination: the state, capitalism, patriarchy, and all other forms that affect human relationships and with the natural environment.

Conscious and strategic actions are needed to compost the obsolescent structures and recover those values and qualities that enable us to live a life in common. As the most promising entry point for the collective change we see a new economic system.

This is giving people the opportunity to finally exit the vicious circle of capitalistic enslavement and its side effects, to find space for new ideas without boundaries and make possible the switch to a healthy life in balance with nature.

What is it?
  • https://fair-coin.org/ FairCoin is the first fairly distributed crypto currency.
  • 99.99% Proof-Of-Stake, rewarding savers and cooperation
  • All the coins were premined and fairly distributed to thousands from all over the world. Computing power not needed.
  • Backed by a strong, diverse and committed community.
  • Promotes prosperity and financial freedom with real value.
  • Working to become the coin of fair trade.

Berlin, Germany: Action Days Against Rent Madness Begin

Arson Attack Against Property Company Deutsche Wohnen

27.03.19: The Action Days Against Rent Madness have begun in earnest in Berlin with an arson attack against the vehicle fleet of property company Deutsche Wohnen.

The attack carried out by an Autonomous Groups cell destroyed 3 vehicles. The action days are part of an ongoing struggle against rising rents, lack of affordable housing and gentrification of working class districts. The campaign has involved a diverse set of tactics ranging from public demonstrations to militant direct action. Here is an excerpt from the claim of responsibility that was posted on German Indymedia:

“We dedicate the ashes of the three burned-out cars to all those affected by letters of termination, evictions and rent increases.

We devote the blazing flames to those who have been abandoned by the system, the victims of daily marginalization, and our fighting comrades, who are either in jail or on the run.”


Activists in Berlin want to seize 200K apartments from landlords

Campaign must first collect 170K signatures

“Are we heading back to socialism now?” asked Germany’s largest tabloid, Bild, earlier this month.

The reason? A referendum initiative in Berlin is seeking to expropriate 200,000 homes from the city’s biggest landlords and convert them into social housing, The Nation reports.

The proposal, known as “Expropriate Deutsche Wohnen and Co,” would affect a total of 10 companies, each of which owns at least 3,000 units in the rapidly-gentrifying German capital.

“Resistance against gentrification has grown so much stronger in the last 10 years. It has been proven that protest pays off,” the founder of the initiative, Rouzbeh Taheri, told The Nation.

The company specifically called out in the name of the proposal, Deutsche Wohnen, is Berlin’s largest private-property owner. Deutsche Bank founded the company in 1998, and it now owns 110,000 apartments in Berlin. Asset manager BlackRock owns more than a 10 percent stake in the company, making it Deutsche Wohnen’s largest shareholder.The official referendum campaign will begin next month, and will need to collect 170,000 signatures as a first step in the process. A long legal battle will likely follow, and the city would have to determine how much to pay the landlords as compensation. If approved, the referendum would be held sometime next year.

If the referendum succeeds, it would mark the first use in 70 years of Article 15 of the German Constitution, which allows for nationalization of private property.

The city of Berlin privatized about 200,000 units between 1989 and 2004, after the end of the Cold War. Rents have more than doubled in the past decade as the city has evolved into a world hipster capital.

The Berlin anti-gentrification movement has established ties with groups around the world, including anti-Amazon protesters in New York.

“We can learn from each other. And I hope we will talk soon about the socialization of Facebook, Google, and Amazon and others. But for now, in Berlin, it’s about housing companies,” said Nina Scholz, a Berlin-based journalist who supports the initiative.

Colombia: US backed Right murders over 313 Community Activists

Over 313 Murders of Human Rights and Environment Defenders, Denounce Colombian Activists.. Government Silent

‘With the guerrillas finally withdrawing and disbanding in a ‘Peace Process’ the rightwing capitalists,  oligarchy and landlords are sending their hired mercenaries to torture and kill hundreds of activists in Unions,  community and environmental  groups. In Cauca [in the Colombian countryside] alone, there are now a reported 12 different such armed groups operating with impunity, also as narco-trafficking organizations’.

During the last two days of the event dated from 16-18 July, at least four new murders took place in Colombia, which the Colombian government blatantly ignored, said the activists. Continue reading “Colombia: US backed Right murders over 313 Community Activists”

Why growing up Anarchist made me a better Permaculture Designer

RTF lady

…..This post intends to share my love for both anarchism and permaculture and why the relationship between them keeps me up at night.

Anarchism and Permaculture

I joined the Anarchist Federation and the Anarchist Youth Network as a young teenager (circa 13-14 years old). While a lot of people have a jaunt at socialism or the Green Party and other escapades and find themselves radicalised by increasing dissolution with liberal ideas, I found I dove into the deep end.

And so began a lifelong love affair with ideas and action that questioned the legitimacy and role of a state, the capitalist economic system and all other forms of intersecting oppression, like racism, sexism and human supremacy.

I hungered for an understanding of all the fucked up things I’d seen or gone through.

”The site Empty Cages Design provides a portfolio of my work as an organiser, designer, agroecologist, educator and writer. It gives a platform to the courses, workshops, events and projects that I organise”.

Blockchain: Anti-Capitalist Revolution or Busine$$ as Usual..?

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN?

The term “blockchain” describes a type of internet-based decentralized ledger system which can be used to record transactions and store data in a manner potentially more secure than one might find in a centralized database system. Blockchains are managed using peer-to-peer (p2p) sharing methods, very similar to BitTorrent. Information stored on a blockchain can be shared across a network through encryption and cross-authentication.

Blockchain will change many aspects of how economies function and develop more transparency and accountability within governments, as well as further decentralize information among individuals, companies, and institutions. The future of blockchain technology is a vast open-ended arena that will likely expand our collective intelligence far beyond previous technologies.

The potential for blockchain to alter global society has attracted the attention of technologists and developers, cooperatives and venture capitalists, the FBI and people outside the law, and almost every world government and banking institution. Currently many sectors of society are fertile ground for experimentation and testing of blockchain applications.

Análisis del Poder Popular en Venezuela : por la Federación Anarquista Uruguaya

  In English here:  https://wp.me/pIJl9-aFs

via   Black Rose Federation        La situación política en Venezuela continúa en conflicto y el legado del Chavismo sigue siendo controvertido y debatido en la izquierda. Reeditamos esta declaración de la Federación Anarquista Uruguaya (FAU) con sus perspectivas sobre la situación actual. Fundado en 1956, la FAU fue uno de los movimientos anarquistas más fuertes de América Latina, sobrevivió al período de la dictadura y continúa activo en la actualidad. También recomendamos otras piezas traducidas sobre Venezuela, el inglésThe ‘Madurization’ of Chavismo”  una declaración de los anarquistas caribeños y un análisis de anarquistas chilenos que condujeron investigaciones políticas en Venezuela:Political Situation in Venezuela: Crisis, Trends, and the Challenge of Class Independence”   El texto original en español aparece a continuación.

“El poder popular en Venezuela, impulsado inicialmente por el carismático Hugo Chávez, ha estado en una tensión constante … Desde arriba, los recursos se han reducido y han obstaculizado, en todas las maneras posibles, el desarrollo de las comunas y el poder popular”.

El Poder Popular en Venezuela:  por  Federación Anarquista Uruguaya

En 1989 se vivió en Venezuela una de las máximas revueltas sociales conocida como “El Caracazo”. Esta revuelta popular fue motivada por las medidas tomadas por el gobierno de Carlos Andrés Pérez, quien entregó la economía venezolana al Fondo Monetario Internacional e implementó una política de shock de neto corte neoliberal. Se profundizaba así la crisis económica que ya vivía el país. El saldo de esta inmensa movilización popular fue de 3 mil muertos.
