The indigenous peoples of Saramurillo (Peruvian Amazon) have held an Uprising for four months to stop the destruction of the environment and constant spills from the Petroperu pumping plant and the obsolete Norperuano Oil Pipeline. (en castellano abajo)

The whole community joined in the 2 month long river blockade in Saramurillo.

There is a corner of the Amazon where the environmental devastation generated by the oil industry have left all passivity behind. This place is called Saramurillo. Since the beginning of September 2016, there has been a rebellion and mobilization of the indigenous peoples affected by the consecutive spills suffered in their territories.

They left their communities and occupied the Petroperú pumping plant. They moved there to prevent their environmental exile, a destination that seemed to be written for them. After months being ignored, the Government agreed to a dialogue with the Resistance Platform. But the negotiation looked complex and tortuous.

REFUGEES FORCED TO LIVE IN SNOW IN TENTS

These images were leaked out of Moria refugee camp in the island of Lesbos in Greece, exposing the dreadful and inhumane conditions that migrants are being forced to endure in order to survive in – 5°C / 23° F, sleeping in tents, on the frozen ground, under heavy snowfall. The severe weather conditions had been foreseen and expected for many days before, and yet hundreds of people that sacrificed everything to escape to “civilized” Europe have been left to their own demise.

The footage itself was captured on January 7, 2017 by an anonymous refugee, as a desperate message to the world about the appalling conditions they face. These images contradict the January 5, 2017 statement of Greek Migration Minister, Yiannis Mouzalas, when he stated “there are no refugees or migrants living in the cold anymore.

Estimadas compañeras,

Harrods and the Social Cleansing of London

uvw-protest

There was a disproportionately large police presence last Saturday at the United Voices of the World demonstration at Harrods Department Store. The protest was called in support of 450 waiters and chefs demanding they receive 100 per cent of their tips from customers, rather than the 25 per cent they are currently receiving, which reduces the salary of each member of staff by up to £5,000 per year. To put this in context, this theft of up to 75 per cent of staff tips by management comes in a year when Harrods announced that their pre-tax profits for 2015-16 had increased by 19 percent to £168 million, sales had risen by 4 per cent to £1.4 billion, and the owners had just paid themselves a juicy £100.1 million dividend. Architects for Social Housing turned up in support of this protest, as did members of Class War, while the Left –…

Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas

“Despite the fear infused in the population, the mobilization took place. The government is the one that should be afraid,” asserted unions, social organizations, transport drivers, students and civil society angered by the rise in fuel prices in the country, after a march that started from the western part of the Chiapas capital and ended with a rally in the central park of Tuxtla.

“We protest against the starvation policies, which increase the cost of basic needs,” denounced members of the National Coordinator of Education Workers (CNTE), who together with workers from the health sector evidenced the loss of the buying power of one’s salary in Mexico.

“Millions of people can’t be wrong,” university and teachers college students…

EX-WORKER PODCAST #53: “ANTI-GLOBALIZATION” WALKING TOUR OF WASHINGTON, D.C.

MB3-org.com

Summary

Our first walking tour! Protesters descending on Washington, D.C. to #DisruptJ20 are stepping into a long history of resistance in the belly of the beast. One of the most innovative and powerful cycles of protest in the nation’s capital was the movement against corporate globalization in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Most tours of D.C. take you around the monuments and museums downtown, but we want to show you another side of the city—the neighborhoods and DIY spaces from which anarchists launched attacks on capital and where seeds were planted for a new world to take its place. Through historic sites, interviews, and a scrapbook of anti-capitalist mementos, we hope to pass on some of the lessons and inspiration that the anti-globalization movement can offer, especially as a new wave of struggle begins under Trump. {January 9, 2017}
