The Syrian People’s Revolution, One Year On: Torture, Disappearances and Exile

25-03-2012 11:27

A year ago, when the Arab Spring began — or, as the events were then called, the revolutionary movements in the Middle East (which had already toppled two western-backed dictators in Tunisia and Egypt) — I remember being surprised, and also worried, when Syrian activists held a “Day of Rage” in Damascus on March 15, and, the day after, other protestors in Damascus — mostly well-established human rights activists — called for the release from prison of other human rights activists, many of whom had been held for many years.

(M31+X) International call for action - Break on through! Overcoming capitalism!

25-03-2012 02:18

This call is no deep theoretical analysis, nor just a wish for another ruthless riot. In this call, we want to concentrate on the existential crisis of late capitalism, characterized by neoliberalism doctrine and the “no alternative” ideology – and what this can mean for the whole system, that we want to get rid of. We want to take a look at the reactions of this crisis-capitalism: how its supporters want to save it, how the fascists want (again) to benefit of it. Finally, we want to think about our past and present experiences, in order to formulate a radical answer for the liberated society we aim for.

This call can be usefull for the future anticapitalist mobilizations but also for our everyday struggles.
