San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas

Yesterday (Wednesday) noon, around 200 people that were carrying sticks, machetes and firearms attacked the roadblock that teachers, students, parents, representatives of more than 50 of the city’s neighborhoods and members of different organizations have maintained on the San Cristóbal-Tuxtla Gutiérrez toll road since June 27, to demand the abrogation of the education reform.

Accompanied by municipal and states police, the…

El 22 de Julio llegó al puerto de Ferrol el primer cargamento de gas de fracking procedente de EEUU.  Según denuncian Ecologistas en Acción, Amigos de la Tierra y otras organizaciones, la llegada del metanero Sestao Knutsen, impedirá a buen seguro el cumplimiento de los ya exiguos e insuficientes objetivos climáticos europeos. Las próximas entregas serán a Barcelona y Sagunto (Valencia).

‘Ni aquí Ni en ninguna parte’ es el lema del movimiento anti-fracking, y genera rechazo el engaño de la importación de gas del fracking de EEUU, especialmente ante las noticias que resulta mucho más dañino que el carbón.

Los últimos estudios de Harvard  dan pruebas que ‘La Revolución del Fracking  es letal para el clima debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano y que ha hecho a perder todas las supuestas reducciones de emisiones en EEUU desde 2009.frackin_7138_11

Probado que el Gas de Fracking es ‘Mucho peor que el Carbón’.

El gas de fracking no es un sustituto menos dañino para el clima. Estudios autoritativos de Harvard y Cornell han revelado que es mucho peor que el carbón  debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano.

ALERT! Mining Threatens Papua New Guinea’s Mighty Sepik River with Utter Ruin

   

Save Frieda RiverThe Frieda river will be polluted, destroying the region’s rainforests and Sepik River’s swamps and staple sago trees downstream         via Earth First, 

TAKE ACTION NOW to protect Papua New Guinea’s rainforests and indigenous people!

Chinese government’s massive open-pit mine in the rainy Papua New Guinea highlands, with its tons of toxic tailings full of sulphides and heavy metals, is to be poised above the Sepik River and its primary rainforests, intact local cultures, and the South Pacific Ocean.

Apparently Papua New Guinea’s urban elites have learned little from decades of foreign industrial mining (and logging) causing conflict and despair, environmental damage, and social and economic decline.

“From a biological perspective I can hardly think of a worse place for a copper mine,” Professor Tim Flannery700897pngscottwaide600x300 (1)

“Dispela kain giaman divelopmen long ples mas pinis o bihaintaim bai had long ol papa graun karim kaiki long ples (This false development must end or it will be hard for local peoples to feed themselves in the future)” – Dr. Glen Barry, Mangi Madang

A proposed large-scale copper and gold mine in PNG will irreparably harm the relatively pristine Sepik and Frieda Rivers, and devastate the region’s primary rainforests and indigenous cultures.

The Sepik is one of the largest wild river systems left in the Asia Pacific. The Frieda River runs for 100 kilometres from the mine site in the steep, forested highlands before it joins the Sepik which flows another 600 kilometres through a wetland-dotted plain before reaching PNG’s northern coast.

19. July 1936: A Tribute to the Spanish Revolution

The Free

  LIVING THE UTOPIA

The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) is one of the most important events of the early 20. century – and so much is ignored and so many lies circulate about it.

The reason is simple. In Spain the different factions of the ruling class have a lot to hide and the survivors are passing away. The existence of a self-organised working class, mainly influenced by anarchism, its courage and lucidity and the role that they played should be hidden at any cost.

Leading up to the failed coup attempt in Turkey, military officers who were jailed as part of the Ergenekon trials, but later released, have been negotiating with the Assad regime on a Turkish-Syrian deal that would see the end of Kurdish autonomy forever. The deal seeks to stop all funding or military support of anti-Assad forces and militias in Syria, including the Kurds. Details of the ‘back channel’ negotiations and the main players involved are given below. Meanwhile, President Erdogan is expected to escalate the purge of his opponents and critics that began yesterday with the dismissal of almost 3000 judges. A statement by the Kurdish movement on the attempted coup and on Erdogan’s authoritarian aspirations is also given below.
