A better translation of the recent Icelandic anarchist communique!

31-01-2009 21:26

Natoinal Theatre 21 Jan
The Icelandic Government has collapsed and some people talk about a revolution. In a way it is true. Ordinary people overthrew this neoliberal government by writing articles, holding speeches, noise demonstrations, bonfires, car horns, direct action, civil disobedience and minor sabotage.

A 'Racist' Strike?

31-01-2009 19:24

Hundreds walk out of their workplace. On the second day the strike spreads, pulling up to a thousand workers out on secondary action across sites in Northern England and Scotland - much of it illegal under the anti-trade union laws Labour has, to its eternal shame, left on the statute books. In short, an outbreak of the very 'spontaneous' actions of our class that would normally excite the left in this country.

Bayer Day of Action in Chile

31-01-2009 18:33

As part of the Day of Action against Bayer, we protested in front of their building. Workers and neighbor companies were informed about what Bayer is related to if they are customers of HLS, a shameful crime against innocent animals in the name of profit.

Stripping Palestinians of their right to self-defence

31-01-2009 12:17

The concerted move against so-called smuggling is intriguing. An illegally besieged people bring in supplies – food and arms – by any means possible. Is that smuggling?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I was under the impression that a people under siege by an illegal occupier are entitled in international law to take up arms against their oppressor.

The horrors of Israel's peace

31-01-2009 10:19

What can we conclude from Israel's unilateral offer of a ceasefire? Under what conditions will it resume its brutal destruction of the Palestinian population? The terms that the Palestinians must accept, according to Israel, if they wish to avoid another brutal round of destruction are these: to remain silent under conditions of occupation; and to resist the impulse to resist the occupation.

The Euston Colonel Rapp demo. In Pictures.

31-01-2009 01:15

People opposing mass murder begin to assemble on Euston road.
On Thursday rumours started to circulate that Mr Geva Rapp, a very senior member of those peace loving Israeli Defence Forces (why do they have “defence” in their title when all they seem to do is attack?) was to address some sympathetic students in a very plush 'student' venue opposite Euston station.

You have to wonder exactly what what their plan was? There are literally dozens of venues all around London that are owned by sympathisers of ethnic cleansing in Palestine. So why (oh why??) did they they pick one that was about 100 yards from a venue where the swappies were having a Palestine rally and SOAS was just a few hundred yards away?!?

Whatever their 'plan' they certainly didn't discuss it with the local plods in advance....

Guantánamo - Obama could do better

31-01-2009 00:17

Obama has yet to make any commitment to dismantle the key components of George Bush's attack on human rights

Scottish-based human rights group Scotland Against Criminalising Communities and the Scotland Stop the War Coalition are giving a cautious welcome to orders signed by President Obama today to close Guantánamo Bay and to put an end to some of the harshest interrogation techniques. But we are dismayed that Obama has so far made no commitment to permanently abandon trial by the notorious Military Commissions and that his comments during the signing ceremony indicate that some Guantanamo prisoners may continue to be held indefinitely without trial. We think Obama could do better. He needs to be a great deal firmer in dealing with the legacy that George Bush has left him.
