Indigenous Communities unite to fight Megaprojects in Chinantla Mountains, Oaxaca

 Etractivism is a war against the people

By Renata Bessi and Santiago Navarro F  at  Avispa Midia

The Chinantec people, inhabitants of the Cajonos River basin in the north of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, are carrying out an organizational process throughout their entire territory, the Chinantla, against economic projects that seek to commodify nature as a whole.

They are megaprojects such as mining, hydroelectric dams, highways, conservation projects, and, more recently, hydrocarbons. It is not a coincidence Chinantla is considered a priority of economic interest for the Mexican government. It houses the third largest tropical rainforest in Mexico. After the Lacandona jungle in Chiapas, and the Chimalapas in Oaxaca, it is the best preserved and one of the richest in biodiversity.

Unsustainable Extractivism destroys our land and water Continue reading Indigenous Communities unite to fight Megaprojects in Chinantla Mountains, Oaxaca

June 11th.. Day to Support Marius, Eric and all Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

Each year, June 11th serves as a day for us to remember our longest imprisoned anarchist comrades through words, actions and ongoing material support.

In 2010, some people who care about Eric McDavid and Marius Mason met up to talk about what we could do to expand our solidarity with the two of them.

Our discussion grew to include the general state of anarchist prisoner solidarity in the United States, because we are all long-term anarchists and most of whom have relationships with many prisoners (including non-anarchists).

We found that Marius and Eric bore the brunt of ineffective prisoner solidarity. At our first gathering, we laid out typical prisoner support efforts. These centered on getting people out of jail and exchanging letters.

These all fall short of meeting Marius, Eric and other long-term prisoners’ needs and desires. We have known many prisoners who have no hope of getting out early and desire something more than what these efforts, however hard to define that something more is.

As our conversations grew, we also became concerned that many people around the world expressed solidarity for Marius and Eric readily and vigorously, but we in the US rarely returned support for international long-term anarchist prisoners.

Of course, we were not the first to come to these realizations. Many people have and continue to put hard work into tailoring their projects to better support prisoners and maintain relationships across barbed fences; we decided that June 11th would be our own collective try. That date had previously been a day of solidarity with Jeff Luers, a former anarchist eco-prisoner. He agreed that we should renew the tradition, and we set to work. Continue reading June 11th..

Washington Nuke Admits 2nd Major Radiation Leak, Workers Contaminated

  “Everybody’s Freaked” –Related image

 Just under two weeks since the emergency at the Hanford nuclear facility in Washington state (following a tunnel collapse), NBC’s local affiliate King5 reports Hanford’s owner, The U.S. Department of Energy, is scrambling to deal with a second emergency – signs have emerged that a massive underground double shell nuclear waste holding tank may be leaking.

The tank is known as AZ 101 and was put into service in 1976. The tank’s life was expected to be 20 years. Now it has been holding hot, boiling radioactive and chemically contaminated waste for 41 years.

This 2013 @ENERGY graph shows expected life of AZ tanks holding hot, liquid nuclear waste. Now 21 years past expected use. @SecretaryPerry

FairCoin is rising! linking integral Coops and Local Currencies

After almost 2 years, where all users of FairCoin, have been accustomed to an exchange rate of 0,05€ (20 Faircoin = 1 €), FairCoop’ assembly has decided to raise that to 0,0667 € (so now 15 Faircoin = 1 €).

This has been a consensus reached through an open, participatory process of discussion. Not the invisible hands of the market, neither the authoritarian control of a central bank. FairCoin has achieved for the first time the milestone of an open assembly process deciding its exchange rate. We are very happy about this achievement, which shows that there is a different way to self-organize the value of a currency.

So, everybody needs to take the new exchange rate into account when making transactions, using FairCoin, from now on. As you may easily understand, this shift will benefit the entire FairCoop ecosystem and reward all of us who support and cooperate towards a fair economic system.

However, most importantly, it greatly enhances our common reserve funds to support subversive and radical projects, as well as to expand the structures of the FairCoop ecosystem itself. Of course, our decision was not based solely on subjective criteria, nor was it rushed since it has been discussed for some time in the context of a more comprehensive strategy we are developing.

SMASH NATO Warmongers.. callout for Radical Block ..May 24th-25th Brussels

Joint maneuvers of American and Portuguese armies, on 20 Oct 2015 in Pinheiro da Cruz, Portugal.

 shared from         On 24 and 25 May, most of the world’s most powerful leaders will meet to discuss war and arming at the NATO summit. Today, NATO has become the weaponized arm of defending the interests of Western capitalism throughout the world and not a factor of security for Europe as we were sold  in the context of Cold War.

We call on all the ungovernable in Europe and elsewhere to join the antimilitarist and anti-capitalist bloc from 5 pm at the Gare du Nord. The next day, at the NATO summit, a “blockage” to disrupt as much as possible the rendezvous of the great powers is also being organized by some associations.

To finance death and suffering, capitalist nations are leading at least two other wars on the rest of the world. A social war is waged within each frontier to make the poorest pay for both the whips that keep them in the rank of exploited but also the massacres of the populations and looting of resources of the countries they call under- developed, constituting a second devastating external economic war.
