Try FairCoin CoOp Cryptocurrency: Buy and Sell without Banks

Sam Dallyn reports on a digital currency setting up new, cooperative alternatives to currency systems which hand over power to unelected central bankers.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have earned a deserved reputation as a murky world of bubbles, wasteful energy consumption, pump and dump schemes, and volatile price rises and drops.

Yet the possibility that a cryptocurrency could offer opportunities to create radical alternative finance outside of capitalism and central banks has gained real credence. One cryptocurrency that could present a genuine exception to the story of cryptocurrencies as tools for financial speculation: FairCoin and FairCoop, the international cooperative movement that supports it.

FairCoin was created in 2014 as an eco-friendly, post-capitalist cryptocurrency, its ideals and principles emerged largely from the Catalan Integral Cooperative (CIC) in Spain, which is a radically autonomous network of cooperatives and social movements based in Catalonia that uses the social currency, Ecos.

International Call for Nuit Debout Solidarity

BY

Nuit Debout, paris, france, occupy

France -Since massive mobilizations swept the nation on March 31st against proposed Labor legislation, thousands of people have held nightly occupy style public assemblies coined ‘Nuit Debout’ or Night Stand to further a movement that has grown into a full-on rejection of the current systems of governance.


 

  1. RT : Foto de está tarde. Tomemos Europa!


The Nuit Debout public assemblies released the following statement.   (List of demo’s scheduled for Saturday below)

Our mobilization was initially aimed at protesting against the French Labour Law. This reform is not an isolated case, since it comes as a new piece in the austerity measures which already affected our European neighbors and which will have the same effects as the Italian Job Acts or the Reforma Laboral in Spain. This concretely means more layoffs, more precarity, growing inequalities and the shaping of private interests. We refuse to suffer this shock strategy, notably imposed in the context of an authoritarian state of emergency.

The debates taking place in the assemblies on Republic square prove that the general exasperation goes way beyond the Labour Law and opens a more global issue: the reconsideration of a social and political system stuck into a deep crisis and on its way out. We will not be the ones crying because of its end.

This movement was not born and will not die in Paris. From the Arab Spring to the 15M Movement, from Tahrir Square to Gezi park, Republic square and the plenty of other places occupied tonight in France are depicting the same angers, the same hopes and the same conviction: the need for a new society, where Democracy, Dignity and Liberty would not be hollow shells.

Supporting testimonies received from abroad warm us and strengthen our commitment. This movement is yours too. It has no limit, no border and it belongs to all of those who wish to be part of it. We are thousands, but we can be millions. Together, standing, awake. Let’s rise up together.

Noam Chomsky vs. US Govt. Terrorism:| ‘The Sledgehammer Worldview’

July 2014 By Noam Chomsky, Truthout | Op-Ed

The front page of The New York Times on June 26 featured a photo of women mourning a murdered Iraqi.

He is one of the innumerable victims of the ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) campaign in which the Iraqi army, armed and trained by the U.S. for many years, quickly melted away, abandoning much of Iraq to a few thousand militants, hardly a new experience in imperial history.

Sledgehammer Worldview

Right above the picture is the newspaper’s famous motto: “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”

There is a crucial omission. The front page should display the words of the Nuremberg judgment of prominent Nazis – words that must be repeated until they penetrate general consciousness: Aggression is “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”
