Mass demos for Alfon.. jailed by corrupt High Court as Gag Law looms

Alfon is a young Madrid activist who was arrested the morning of the last General Strike and crudely framed up for his attitude. He was free on appeal but, with just days to go before the scandalous Gagging Laws come into effect, the High Court (neo fascist controlled) has had him arrested to serve 4 years.

 Occupy Benetton! Still don’t Compensate 1134 Sweatshop Deaths

Corporation Still Hasn’t Paid for Rana Plaza Collapse05lug2-united-colors

Like others they are delighted to scoop mega profits by exploiting quasi slave labour in poor countries. After the world outcry at the Rana plaza disaster they were delighted to whitewash their image promising to pay out 5 million dollars… BUT THE BASTARDS HAVE PAID JUST A FRACTION SO FAR…

‘  last week 5 activists occupied United Colors of Benetton, St. Stephen’s Green [Dublin] asking Benetton to honour their pledge of 5 million dollars to the victims of the Rana Plaza Collapse [deadliest garment factory incident in history] which claimed the lives of 1134 people and left over 2500 casualties.

Within 16 minutes of entering the shop 4 Gardaí arrived and asked the manager to tell us to leave…. Continue reading  Occupy Benetton! Still don’t Compensate 1134 Sweatshop Deaths

Eleven Feminisms in One: Going Viral Despite Internet Patriarchy

Dozens of varying Feminisms are undermining long established patrarchal priveliges worldwide

Feminism is under fierce attack on the internet. When looking for illustrations for this post I found many anti feminist sites. In the images I saw stacks of doctored photos denigrating feminism by mockery, divide-and-rule, inventions, junk science, misandry, rape celebration, patronizing, etc.

Mostly it seemed to me like pathetic bleating by Nth American men about losing any of their socially permitted patriarchal privileges,… But switch language on Google and you get similar results in different contexts..

Seems like we’re living through  giant  social battles that are going on around the world, in which  millions of women feel empowered by a perceived freedom and individuality on social media, threatening to undermine long established systems of cultural semi slavery, and provoking ‘testerical’ reactions from religious and authority figures.

One classic sexist tactic is  to single out  and exaggerate separatist ideas and continuously brand all feminists as ‘smelly, hairy, man haters’ etc. Continue reading Eleven Feminisms in One: Going Viral Despite Internet Patriarchy
