Anarchy in the UK: The Social Centres roundup in England

For all its small size and general impoverishment the libertarian socialist movement actually runs a surprisingly large amount of real estate around Britain, all on non-hierarchical lines, by and for the people of the cities and towns we’re in. Housing co-ops, bookshops, bike collectives, archives, distros, printers and the like are all part of the collective mix. Below, Freedom News briefly rounds up some goings-on at 15 radical social centres… …

German Government Shuts Down Indymedia- What It Means and What to Do

The German government has shut down the German Indymedia site linksunten.indymedia.org, the most widely used German-language platform for radical politics and organizing. They have also conducted raids in Freiburg to seize computers and harass those they accuse of maintaining the site, absurdly justifying this on the grounds that the alleged administrators constitute an illegal organization for the sake of destroying the German Constitution. This represents a massive escalation in state repression against what the authorities… …

Θεσσαλονίκη ΠΟΡΕΙΑ ΠΕΜΠΤΗ 15/6 | Να υποδεχτούμε τους σφαγείς της Παλαιστίνης όπως τους αρμόζει- Anarchist’s demo against Israel prime minister- Let’s welcome the slaughters of Palestinians as they deserve it!

* [text: Eng./Ελλ.] Την Πέμπτη 15/6, η κυβέρνηση της «αριστεράς» θα υποδεχτεί στη Θεσσαλονίκη τον πρωθυπουργό του Ισραήλ, Μπ. Νετανιάχου, για την τριμερή Συνάντηση Κορυφής μεταξύ Ελλάδας, Ισραήλ και Κύπρου. Στην τελευταία αντίστοιχη συνάντηση, το Νοέμβριο του 2015, ο Α. Τσίπρας είχε φροντίσει να χαρακτηρίσει την κατεχόμενη Ιερουσαλήμ ως «ιστορική πρωτεύουσα» του Ισραήλ, νομιμοποιώντας έτσι τη θηριωδία των ισραηλινών δυνάμεων κατοχής.

When Insurrections Die by Gilles Dauvé

“If the Russian Revolution becomes the signal for a proletarian revolution in the West, so that both complement each other, the present Russian common ownership of land may serve as the starting point for a communist development.” Marx/Engels – Preface to the Russian edition of the manifesto, 1882. This perspective was not realized. The European industrial proletariat missed its rendez-vous with a revitalized Russian peasant commune. Brest-Litovsk, 1917 and 1939… …

Deep Anger! We need to rediscover something we lost along the way. — by Darren Fleet with Stefanie Krasnow (Adbusters mag.)

In a better world, there’d be no reason to write this. In that world, plastic bags would be outlawed, rednecks would voluntarily stop driving those obnoxious Ford F-350s and the yogis in yuppie neighborhoods would stop believing that a hybrid SUV could save the planet. But that’s not the world we live in. In this world, when push comes to shove, most of us are too comfortable to care, too… …

Slavoj Žižek: “Trouble in Paradise” On the protests in Turkey and Greece

In his early writings, Marx described the German situation as one in which the only answer to particular problems was the universal solution: global revolution. This is a succinct expression of the difference between a reformist and a revolutionary period: in a reformist period, global revolution remains a dream which, if it does anything, merely lends weight to attempts to change things locally; in a revolutionary period, it becomes clear… …

To everyone feeling screwed over by the economy, We are told that our problem is that there aren’t enough jobs. This message is everywhere.
