The Kellys are a Spanish based net of groups defending shockingly exploited workers, mainly women hotel cleaners in precarious jobs. Women who are ignored by the bought-out Unions who are tied up in laws and covert bribes. Workers are treated like dirt, while clients spend up to 500 euros a night for a 5 star hotel room..

The Kellys is an autonomous Association and that believes in self-organization, it is made up of hotel cleaners, floor waitresses and their friends and relatives and it fights from common objectives.

The Kellys aims to give visibility to the problems of the floor maids, as well as contributing to the improvement of their quality of life. We operate in territorial work groups, each working group internally manages its spokeswomen

Open our prison!
Open our coffin; let the world
be in awe of seeing us
Indomitable
Do not remain silent

We honor Anarcha the Slave! Resisting Patriarchy and Racist Capitalism

In 2015 # Anarchagland, an autonomous-research project of #gynepunk  in Catalonia,  renamed female sex glands after 3 slaves, Anarcha, Betsey and Lucy, who were abused as guinea pigs  by the maverick doctor J Marion Sims.  

Dr Sims, who had no gynecological experience,  obtained up to 20 black slave women suffering gynecological injuries of torn fistulas and experimented on them, without anesthetics , for 4 years in his ”medical Plantation” in Alabama .

“If there was anything I hated,” he wrote from the outset, “it was investigating the organs of the female pelvis.”

FREE ALPHABET PICTURE BOOK ABOUT EUROPE’S VIOLENT COLONIAL RACISM

by Eye Candy at AfroPunk        Spain-based Peruvian writer Daniela Ortiz’s new book is the history lesson I never got as a child but always needed.  free download HERE.

The ABC of Racist Europe seeks to expose how Europe’s racist, colonial laws came to be and can still be felt today in xenophobic migrant and refugee policies.

According to Telesur, the book began as part of an exhibit showcased earlier this month at The Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art in Middlesbrough, England.

“Each letter has an imperialist message, for example, the letter K was for King … where the image shows a king imprisoning Africans, an image that today would be unacceptable,” Continue reading FREE ALPHABET PICTURE BOOK ABOUT EUROPE’S VIOLENT COLONIAL RACISM

SMASH NATO Warmongers.. callout for Radical Block ..May 24th-25th Brussels

Joint maneuvers of American and Portuguese armies, on 20 Oct 2015 in Pinheiro da Cruz, Portugal.

 shared from         On 24 and 25 May, most of the world’s most powerful leaders will meet to discuss war and arming at the NATO summit. Today, NATO has become the weaponized arm of defending the interests of Western capitalism throughout the world and not a factor of security for Europe as we were sold  in the context of Cold War.

We call on all the ungovernable in Europe and elsewhere to join the antimilitarist and anti-capitalist bloc from 5 pm at the Gare du Nord. The next day, at the NATO summit, a “blockage” to disrupt as much as possible the rendezvous of the great powers is also being organized by some associations.

To finance death and suffering, capitalist nations are leading at least two other wars on the rest of the world. A social war is waged within each frontier to make the poorest pay for both the whips that keep them in the rank of exploited but also the massacres of the populations and looting of resources of the countries they call under- developed, constituting a second devastating external economic war.

Putting back the Carbon inThe Soil.. a Solution to Climate Change

 If capitalist agro business could be abolished then the climate crisis could be solved and food production increased, just by changing our farming methods to lock carbon into the soil.

The Soil Solution to Climate Change…   Film Review

This informational film, based on the French 4 per 1,000 initiative, proposes an ancient form of carbon sequestration* as an alternative to risky technological methods of carbon sequestration. There is strong scientific consensus that to prevent catastrophic global warming, atmospheric CO2 levels must be reduced from 400 parts per million (ppm) to 350 ppm.

The 4 per 1,000 initiative encourages all UN member countries to increase the carbon in their soils by 0.4% per year by transitioning from industrial agriculture – which tends to strip soil of carbon – to more traditional practices that tend to replenish soil carbon (and simultaneously increase yields: see Organic and Sustainable Farming Increases Yields by 79% or More).

Thirty Seconds To Midnight – The Final Wake Up Call??

   more mega-doom from  from celebrated lefties.. only unfortunately they’re quite right

armageddonImage by Ben Salter with thanks

from… Dandelion Salad ..Filmmaker Regis Tremblay states what few others dare to say. Humanity is on the brink of extinction! Nuclear power is not safe. 48 of America’s nuclear power plants are leaking and there is no way to get rid of nuclear waste.

America’s reckless provocations of both Russia and China, two nuclear-armed countries, risk a nuclear holocaust from which no one survives. Climate change and global warming, if not mitigated immediately, will end the human experiment on earth sooner rather than later.

A shocking documentary that traces the origins of U.S. genocides, military interventions and wars from the 15th century when the white, colonial explorers first came to the Americas to the very present. American Exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny, and the right to claim the earth and its resources as their own are the beliefs that are the foundation of American foreign policy in the 21st Century that has humanity on the brink of extinction.
