The center of La Paz has been transformed into a scenario of barricades, queues to purchase in the few businesses that are open, transportation halted, neighbours stationed on corners crossed by barbed wires and zinc sheets.

Near Plaza Murillo, the center of political power, groups pass by wearing helmets, shields, gas masks, Bolivian flags, police contingents betting on each other and asking for reinforcement from the National Armed Force (FAB). The scenes seen during the afternoon reminded many in central and southern La Paz that half of the country that voted for Evo Morales exists and will not stand idly by.

Fascist brutality and intimidation

The coup d’etat against the Evo Morales government in Bolivia was consumed. Now the most terrifying thing is coming against the Bolivian people, particularly against the working class, against grassroots and indigenous organizations, against critical thinking, against anyone who opposes capitalist plundering, the depredation of nature, the exploitation.

The declared Catholic fundamentalism and the abject racism, the most brutal misogyny and the nostalgia of the time of the crusades are coming (they are announcing the actions and proclamations of the coup plotters); the intensification of the plundering of Lithium, of gas, of silver, of gold, of tin, of iron, of springs and other natural wealth, comes greater exploitation against the workers, hunger and extermination against the people, mountains and rivers capitalized by a handful of multinationals and landowners.

Under the Evo government, free education was guaranteed, access to drinking water was universalized, children, pregnant women and the elderly had essential guarantees, Universal Health Insurance was created, etc.

Now what comes with the religious fanatic coup plotters and eager to intensify the capitalist plundering, is the privatization of education, the dismantling of the Universal Health Insurance so that a handful of capitalists can profit through their private medical insurers.

The privatization of health will kill the millions of people who cannot afford private insurance due to medical absence. They may also introduce private pension funds, to speculate on gigantic capitals, while the pensions of the elderly will reduce them to a macabre misery, like what they did in Chile.

Under the government of Evo Morales, the capital generated by mining and taxes in social services was invested to implement an improvement in the quality of life of the most impoverished people of the exploited class (but capitalism was not questioned at the root and there remained an exploited class and an exploiting class);

Social measures obviously represented a relief for thousands of Bolivian families, but like any measure that does not modify the structure of the socioeconomic system, its durability had an expiration date. It had an expiration date because the exploiting class never ceases in its eagerness to deepen the levels of exploitation and looting, given that based on these mechanisms it is enriched.

Image may contain: 9 people, people smiling, crowd and outdoor

We strongly condemn the military coup in Bolivia, and extends our solidarity to the Bolivian people who are struggling to defend the massive gains won under the leadership of President Evo Morales in the face of this counter-revolution. U.S. imperialism is clearly the sponsor of the coup and we are outraged at this crime against Bolivian sovereignty and democracy.

Come rally with us at the Stand for Peace Rally, which has been upheld on a weekly basis for many years by Peace Action Wisconsin, to condemn US intervention in the democratic affairs of a sovereign state. The battle in Bolivia and all of Latin America continues between the forces that want to empower the people and those that want to restore the power and wealth of…

In 2015 #Anarchagland, an autonomous-research project of #gynepunk  in Catalonia,  renamed female sex glands after 3 slaves, Anarcha, Betsey and Lucy, who were abused as medical guinea pigs  by the maverick doctor J Marion Sims.  

Dr Sims, who had no gynecological experience,  obtained up to 20 black slave women suffering gynecological injuries of torn fistulas and experimented on them, without anesthetics , for 4 years in his ”medical Plantation” in Alabama .

“If there was anything I hated,” he wrote from the outset, “it was investigating the organs of the female pelvis.”

#BoycottTurkey.. Let’s defend Rojava Revolution, and STOP the rise of fascism..

All authoritarians, capitalists and climate criminals hate the Rojava revolution. Those friends who #RiseUp4Rojava are ordinary people, all over the planet, who see it as a workable embryo and example of a new human system that could save the world from utter destruction. Let’s defend the Rojava Revolution, and STOP the rise of fascism.. Viva Rojava! No Pasarán!

Thousands take to the streets worldwide … – boycottturkey.net

No Flight to Turkey

Together we sanction Turkey for its war of aggression on Northern Syria! see how here:…https://riseup4rojava.org/no-flight-to-turkey/

The nature of the growing fascist beast.

Turkey’s inhuman and genocidal invasion of NE Syria has been celebrated and lauded in the controlled media, spurring a wave of proud male xenophobic nationalism. Now you are seen as a traitor if you even mention the economic crash, Erdogan’s crimes, or his defeat in Istanbul elections. Turkey has Indicted 78 People for Criticizing the Invasion of Syria on social media . ( Even this blog is banned with many others in Turkey). How can this be happening?

‘The Fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. A Supreme dictator embodies the fascist State, using terror as a tool of control because when humans are scared, they are easy to control and manipulate’.

‘Fear is the ultimate weapon for it works on your own people as well as your enemies. (see:Erdogan Jails and Tortures 195,000 People who Might not Like Him) Add to the mix some flag-centric nationalism, total control of the media, some uber-macho militarism and a corporatist hierarchy that puts the “right” people of the master race in power, and you’ve got the makings of a top notch fascist regime’.

RiseUP with The Spirit of Chile in New York City

  • shared from Left Voice by Tatiana Cozzarelli All over the world, people are rising up. Just in the last month, there have been uprisings in Lebanon, Ecuador, Iraq, Catalonia, Haiti, and Chile. On Friday, a thousand people were jumping over turnstiles at a subway station in Brooklyn to protest against high fares and police violence. Is the global revolt coming to the U.S.?

All over the world, people are rising up. Just in the last month, there have been uprisings in Lebanon, Ecuador, Iraq, Catalonia, Haiti, and Chile. All over the world, austerity measures are being publicly questioned by the masses in the streets. All over the world, the working class and oppressed are saying that enough is enough.

And these protests are being led by young people—people who grew up in the wake of the 2008 crisis, seeing the wealthy get wealthier while they and their parents have to tighten their belts. Some of these youth know, either implicitly or explicitly, that capitalist politicians will only offer us false promises. If we want to win, we need to take the struggle in our own hands.

UK govt ‘moratorium’ stops fracking in England,

No longer ‘glorious’? UK govt ‘bans’ fracking in England, admitting modern tech can’t predict earthquake threat & impact

https://www.rt.com/uk/472438-uk-government-fracking-moratorium/

As Prime Minister Boris Johnson gears up for a snap election, his government made a surprise U-turn on shale gas extraction, citing public concerns and technological limits on predicting the impact of fracking on the environment.

Johnson’s administration announced on Friday that it would “take a presumption against” any new fracking projects, “until compelling new evidence is provided.” While the move was presented as an immediate moratorium on the controversial practice, the official announcement makes clear the government would still consider requests for fracking licenses “on their own merits,” potentially rendering the decision a virtue signal to Green voters in the upcoming poll.
