Fantasy Anarchist Terrorist Alert at Spanish Prisons

fuegoMedia intoxication in the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners   by Balailo.info
The Spanish Interior Minister of State fears an anarchist attack against prison officials this week

A post here at vozpopuli  has “uncovered” a Prisons Circular recently distributed to its workers demanding extreme measures to protect themselves against possible suspicious packages received between 23 and August 30th. The reason for this is the “discovery” by the Information Service of the paramilitary Civil Guard of the international call for solidarity with anarchist prisoners from 23 to 30 August.

According to these coppers, the poster is “much more aggressive than the last year’s” In fact, you can read the legend “fire to the prisons and jailers”, which leads them to conclude that the “main objective of the anarchist movement” at the moment are Prison Officers “or any persons related to the facilities of the General Secretariat of Penitentiary Institutions “. All because someone added ”and the Jailors” to the traditional ”Fire to The Prisons” slogan. Continue reading Fantasy Anarchist Terrorist Alert at Spanish Prisons

The social revolutionary thread that links the Zapatistas of Mexico & the Kurds of Rojava

Originally posted on UndercoverInfo:

A gathering of Zapatista women

Despite being continents apart, the struggles of the Kurds and Zapatistas share a common purpose – to resist capitalism, liberate women and build autonomy – and a common ideology. We have extensively covered what is happening with both the Zapatista revolution in Chiapas (Mexico) and with the Kurdish revolution (in Rojava province) via a series of articles over several months. Now we publish an article that explains the links between the Zapatistas and the Kurds – links that are not just ideological, but demonstrate similar day-to-day practices in creating social revolution.

(Note: this article is an edited version of an article by Peter Stanchev, University of Essex, that was first published in Kurdish Question. See also extensive links at end of this article, below.)

Only six months ago very few people had ever heard of Kobani. But when ISIS launched its futile…

Trashing the Pacific.. Ecociding the Planet

 
iCyTrkSEven the immensity of the Pacific cannot resist the insanity of predator capitalism.

The ocean is the cradle of life on Earth. In the East and West of the Pacific there are wide seas of gyrating plastic  and a chemical stewn swirls in Asia, ploughed through by factory fishing ships scouring the seas of life.. Yet cheap alternatives to plastic and sustainable fishing practices have always been available.

Since the Fukushima meltdowns every day billions of bequerels of nearly everlasting and life destroying radiation flows into the Pacific. Just for private profit, they built Nuclear Stations on one of the biggest earthquake faults on Earth.

For 200 years fossil fuels have been burnt like there’s no tomorrow, upsetting the delicate balance of CO2 and setting off nearly irreversible climate change. The Pacific is at its hottest since records began, threatening  to kill the coral reefs. Cheaper and safer CO2 free alternative has always existed, but oil concentrates profit for the mega rich. ( co2freefuelexistsnow)

It’s high time to take action , however we can. Nobody really knows the limits of the ocean, or for instance when exactly acidification becomes irreversible and causes a million year climate meltdown. But all these and many more crimes against the planet add up to a giant and  multiplying massacre in the cradle of life…

To stop oil projects from moving forward, the Unist’ot’en have set up an encampment on traditional territory

HOUSTON, British Columbia — In a remote mountain pass connecting the Pacific Coast to the interior of British Columbia, a region brimming with wild berries and populated by grouse and grizzly bears, felled and painted trees have been laid across a logging road to form an enormous message. Directed at air traffic, it reads “No pipelines! No entry!” The warning marks off land where the government of Canada and a First Nations clan hold irreconcilable views of what should happen to a 435-square-mile area each claims as its own.

Starting in 2009, the government of Canada began to issue permits for a pipeline corridor to link British Columbia’s fracking fields and Alberta’s tar sands with export facilities and tankers on the Pacific coast. Seeking to become a global energy superpower
