The newly approved “Ley de Seguridad Ciudadana” (Public Safety Act) may include provisions about drugs and sporting events, but make no mistake: this law is not about protecting the public, it is about criminalizing protest, and restricting your right to speak out.

I recently visited Madrid and Barcelona for the release of the Spanish translation of my book, Green Is the New Red. My work focuses on how political activism is being criminalized. Given my area of work, and living in the United States, it is rare that I am shocked anymore by new “national security” laws or repressive measures. I see them every day.  Continue reading

 A little rant against the Church, Slavery, Racism and Capital, then a reblog of Adrianne Aron’s classic essay.16

Haiti will get a CARDINAL. Pope Frances announced, on the 4th  anniversary of the earthquake, with tens of thousands still not rehoused,  and the 10th anniversary of the criminal US organised Coup against The President of the Poor, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, himself a former salesian priest.

Cardinal Langlois is a wonderful man, and so modest, and the western media have been given free rein to gush over him, this is ‘our boy’ and can be trusted not to rock the boat for ”our” corporations, like Aristide did. (see here Haitians oppressed to be robbed again in gold rush).church predators

  Both the wonderful cardinal and pope Frances love  the Poor, indeed they are desperately seeking new support from the poor and uninformed as the Catholic Church crashes in popularity, even  being condemned by the UN for making it illegal to report the rampant sex crimes against children by its criminal clergy.

‘Only One Big Project’: Italy’s burgeoning social movements

by Alfredo Mazzamauro on January 20, 2014

forconi%20sicilia

In the context of a deepening housing crisis, Italy’s movements are becoming increasingly united in their opposition to neoliberalism and austerity.

If there is one day that can symbolically represent the current struggle against austerity and neoliberalism in Italy it must be the 19th of October 2013 — the day of the General Uprising (“sollevazione generale”) against austerity. On that date, behind a banner that read “Only One Big Project: Income and Houses for Everyone!” around one hundred thousand people took the streets of Rome in what could be considered the most successful demonstration by the Italian social movements since the economic crisis began in 2007.

Last week the Spanish authorities backed down rapidly as a violent neighbourhood campaign against yuppification  suddenly spread across the State. Suddenly popular resistance is on the menu with the hitherto pacifist  15M movement calling dozens of demos. Now there is a lull with hopes that many cities will take up their greievances and fight the coming police state legislation , here and across Europe.

      Spain is home to almost one third of the Euro regions unemployed, with an unemployment rate of over 25% and it has been at that for six quarters in a row. That’s a lot of misery, poverty and deprivation, while the financial Mafia keep screwing the people and muttering about adjustments and growth. Continue reading

Global Noise Demo for Prisoner Solidarity: New Year’s Eve 2013/14noise prison demo

Inside and Outside Prisons, Jails, & Detention Centers around the World

from Anarchist News

This event is inspired by the call out for a day of action against prisons in the New Year of 2010/2011, which happened again in 2011/2012 and again last year, & remains relevantly unchanged.

Noise demos outside of prisons in some countries are a continuing tradition. A way of expressing solidarity for people imprisoned during the New Year, remembering those held captive by the state. A noise demo breaks the isolation and alienation of the cells our enemies create, but it does not have to stop at that. Continue reading

Dozens of police injured as they attack eviction protest in Hamburg (PHOTOS, VIDEO)1387710985-violent-riots-break-out-during-protest-in-hamburg_3547743

Over 8,000 protesters have clashed with riot police as they protested against the planned eviction of squatters from a popular social centre, and against the eviction of hundreds of Syrian refugees from their homes. The largely peaceful protest erupted following a baton charge, and use of teargas, and water cannons by the police. The protesters responded by building barricades, throwing stones, fireworks, and bottles. It is reported that over 500 people has been injured, and around 150 arrests made.

December 22, 2013 15:33

Hamburg residents have clashed with police in what is the most violent protest in years, with scores injured, after more than 7,000 took to the streets to protest plans to evict squatters from an old theater building, which is a leftist cultural center.

Police and protesters give conflicting figures, putting the number of participants anywhere from 7,000 to 10,000 people, with more than 100 policemen and a yet unspecified number of protesters injured in Saturday’s civil unrest.

Police said that some 4,000 of the protesters were from extreme left-wing groups. The violence involved stone and bottle-throwing, firecrackers and smoke bombs. Police responded with pepper spray and water cannon. Continue reading
