✊🏽 Ashley Judd’s Fiery Fighting Feminist Speech ❤️‍⭐️‍

NASTY WOMAN    from   ..It Is What It Is

“My name is ..  and I am a feminist.

And I want to say hello to Independence Avenue in the back, all the way down to 17th Street, and I bring you words from Nina Donovan, a 19-year-old in Middle, Tennessee.

She has given me the privilege of telling you what she has to say:

“I am a nasty woman. I’m as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust. A man whose words are a distract to America. Electoral college-sanctioned, hate-speech contaminating this national anthem. I’m not as nasty as Confederate flags being tattooed across my city.

Maybe the South actually is going to rise again. Maybe for some it never really fell. Blacks are still in shackles and graves, just for being black. Slavery has been reinterpreted as the prison system in front of people who see melanin as animal skin. I am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag, and I didn’t know devils could be resurrected but I feel Hitler in these streets.

URGENT SOLIDARITY ACTION NEEDED: MEMBERS OF THE POLITICAL AND SOCIAL MOVEMENTS IN HONDURAS ARE AT RISK

via . http://defensoresenlinea.com/
en castellano aquí: ACCIÓN URGENTE: EN RIESGO LA INTEGRIDAD DE LAS Y LOS MIEMBROS DEL MOVIMIENTO POLÍTICO Y SOCIAL DE HONDURAS.

The Committee of the Families of the Detained and Disappeared in Honduras issues an ACTION ALERT to the national and international community on behalf of members of the political and social movement of Honduras who are at high risk due to the militarization of the capital of the republic and declarations made by functionaries of the state of Honduras inciting their supporters into the streets to attack the political opposition that is actively responding to the irresponsibility of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal that has denied the population the right to information about the tabulation of votes from the election on November 26th, 2017. Honduras received $17.3m in security aid from the US this year.

Outraged at the  the theft of Honduras’ election by the discredited current administration, 50 US rights groups have joined call to urge the US to press Honduras for electoral transparency. 
On 3rd Dec the opposition led by Nasralla demanded a repetition of the elections as the count continued to be stalled, with the Govt being given a slight lead and election officials fearing for their lives.
By 4th Dec seven demonstrators were reported killed around the country.DQFW9D-VAAASrOZ

Background

On November 26, 2017 elections for president, members of Congress and municipal authorities were held in Honduras.  At 2 am on November 27 the Electoral Tribunal reported that with 57% of the votes counted the tendency favored candidate Salvador Nasralla with 45,17% of the total votes and the President – candidate

Juan Orlando Hernández with 40,21%. This was the first time that a candidate ran for re-election as president through an assault on the Constitution via the Supreme Court of Justice controlled by Hernández.

After releasing those figures, the Tribunal went silent and the electronic counting system crashed several times, creating a security breach for those holding the access codes.  This situation raised well-founded suspicions of fraud among the population and collective indignation     ./.continues Continue reading Honduras: your help needed.

Emma Goldman – Living My Life … free download

FREE download HERE>..Emma Goldman – Living My Life 

 Emma Goldman was an anarchist renown for her political activism, writing, and speeches. She played a pivotal role in the development of anarchism in North America and Europe in the first half of the twentieth century.

“I became alive once more. At the dances I was one of the most untiring and gayest. One evening a cousin of Sasha, a young boy, took me aside. With a grave face, as if he were about to announce the death of a dear comrade, he whispered to me that it did not behove an agitator to dance.

Certainly not with such reckless abandon, anyway. It was undignified for one who was on the way to become a force in the anarchist movement. My frivolity would only hurt the Cause.

I grew furious at the impudent interference of the boy. I told him to mind his own business. I was tired of having the Cause constantly thrown into my face. I did not believe that a Cause which stood for a beautiful ideal, for anarchism, for release and freedom from convention and prejudice, should demand the denial of life and joy.

Economic ‘Growth’ will destroy everything. Greening it won`t work – We Need a New System.

Everything Must Go

By George Monbiot,     Everyone wants everything – how is that going to work? The promise of economic growth is that the poor can live like the rich and the rich can live like the oligarchs.

But already we are bursting through the physical limits of the planet that sustains us. Climate breakdown, soil loss, the collapse of habitats and species, the sea of plastic, insectageddon: all are driven by rising consumption.

But growth must go on: this is everywhere the political imperative.

And we must adjust our tastes accordingly. In the name of autonomy and choice, marketing uses the latest findings in neuroscience to break down our defences.

Research by Oxfam suggests that the world’s richest 1% (if your household has an income of £70,000 or more (78,000 euros), this means you) produce around 175 times as much carbon as the poorest 10%.

Those who seek to resist must, like the Simple Lifers in Brave New World, be silenced – in this case by the media. With every generation, the baseline of normalised consumption shifts. Thirty years ago, it was ridiculous to buy bottled water, where tap water is clean and abundant.

Today, worldwide, we use a million plastic bottles a minute. Continue reading Economic ‘Growth’ will destroy everything. Greening it won`t work – We Need a New System.

”Gas Natural’s Pskov loaded at Sabine Pass on 6-November and is now making her laden voyage towards Barcelona, ETA 20-November”.

Según el sitio web analista Kpler el barco la PSKOV es ”de Gas Natural’. Pero no figura en la lista de metaneros de GNF, al menos que fuera fletado últimamente. Pertenecía en 2015 a la gran empresa Rusa OAO Sovcomflot (SCF) pero fue fletado a GAZPROM por 15 años.The Pskov LNG carrier has a cargo storage capacity of 170,200m³

(”The Pskov gas carrier is the second one in a series of high-tech ice-class LNG carriers that have been designed on Gazprom’s order., Gazprom Marketing & Trading (GM&T) chartered Pskov from Russian shipping company Sovcomflot” http://www.gazprom.com/press/news/2014/august/article199499/  ).

Defense Committees in the Catalan Uprising: anarchist style People Power can Win

  
Activists around Europe are buzzing with the  arrival of a new revolutionary force. The Catalan CDRs.. the Republic Defence Committees, characterized by direct, decentralized assembly action. Anarchist organisations except for their aim for a new StateIn just a few weeks over 172 CDRs have sprung up. This is in response to the neo fascist paramilitary repression, jailings and abolition of limited local government. CDRs,, for example in Manresa have called demonstrations up to 5,000 strong a few days after being formed.

The Defence Committees can be traced back to those created by the CNT in the Spanish Revolution to defend the 2nd Republic from  a fascist takeover, which morphed into the revolutionary militias. This time round the CDRs have largely been inspired by the small but influential CUP, a remarkable ‘anarcho-republican’ anti capitalist party.

And then there was the 2nd General Strike on Wed 8th Nov. It was billed as a big flop, called by the tiny CSC, opposed or ignored by all the Trade Unions and faced with massive paramilitary police repression and a pending banning order. Just days before the  Madrid based regime had sponsored  fleets of coaches and even trains to bring in thousands of violent right wing ‘demonstrators’, for a huge demo openly led by thugs sporting swastikas, zieg heils and Francoist symbols.

Is this 1936?? People are pouring out of the barrios and blocking the roads

Nevertheless before 6.00am  on 8th Nov.  thousands of people were blocking the main North -South A7 Motorway from France and Spain in the freezing winter night. Northbound the motorway was closed for over 13 hours at the  La Jonquera French border. Southbound it was still closed at 9.00 pm at Ampolla.
