Are the Wheels Starting to Fall Off TTIP?

‘The battle isn’t over,’ writes Dearden, ‘but yesterday’s vote should give campaigners everywhere real hope.’ (Image: Global Justice Now)

In a shock vote for President Obama yesterday, the Senate blocked a bill that would have allowed him to ‘fast track’ trade agreements like TTIP. Although only a procedural vote, the fact that Democrats in the Senate united to dismiss the motion makes it significantly less likely that Obama will succeed, with commentators saying Obama’s trade strategy is now ‘in tatters’.

Anarchists organize everywhere: The Catalan anarchist federation

We share and translate news from the A las barricadas

We introduce the public campaign of the Anarchist Federation of Catalonia, launched during these days to complement an earlier effort made under the slogan “Maybe you thought you were an anarchist?”. It is an outreach campaign of libertarian ideas and and the effort to connect with people who are not politicized but who may sympathize with our ideas and methods of struggle. This time it is a matter of presenting a series of struggles that libertarian people are pursuing in different areas…

Exploring the Commons, 1. Open Assemblies, now and in History.

–  “The assembly is a central part of the Spanish left tradition. Social movements have always seen themselves through the prism of assemblies.”

open assembly in Catalunya

We don’t mean controlled school assemblies, much less those of religious sects, who use the form just for a semblance of participation without the danger of maybe taking a vote.

We mean real assemblies.. to sit around in a circle with no fixed agenda and no attempt to control, talking things out until decisions can normally be reached by consensus.

The Spanish 15M movement evolved from occupying Squares to hundreds of local assemblies, which in turn set off thousands of community initiatives. The beauty of a real assembly is that no one can take power, and predatory Parties, Unions and egoistic self seeking ‘leaders’ get sidelined, allowing revolutionary energy to flow.

 La municipalización de la Economía

por Janet Biehl.. traducción ..The Freerojava-revolutionA medida que la revolución Rojava continúa, la naturaleza de su economía ha sido muy discutido. Como he escrito anteriormente, Rojava aspira a una economía social basada en las cooperativas. En las últimas semanas, varias personas me han preguntado por las ideas de Murray Bookchin sobre la economía: ¿cuáles son los aspectos económicos del municipalismo libertario? He creado un resumen de su pensamiento aquí, sobre la base de los recursos enumerados al final de este artículo. -Janet Biehl


Anarquía en Rojava: Una revolución libertaria en el Medio Oriente desde subMedia.tv en Vimeo.


En una economía capitalista, los medios de producción, la industria y al igual que la tierra, las materias primas y acabadas, la riqueza financiera se concentran en manos privadas. La alternativa es una economía social, en el que la propiedad de dichos bienes, en todo o en parte, se desplaza a la sociedad en su conjunto…..
