This is What Democracy Looks Like! : The Fight For The Can Vies Social Centre

22-07-2014 17:51

n May Barcelona was shook by four days of rioting and protest against the eviction of an established social centre, Can Vies.

Juana Belén Gutiérrez de Mendoza looks at the history of the building, and interviews the organisers currently fighting its eviction.

Self organised social centre (Centre social autogestionat) Can Vies has been a space for radical politics and community organising for 17 years. It’s been a place where different generations of activists can meet and learn from each other, where hundreds of people have learnt to be a part of a community, participating in the assembly with consensus decision making and collective responsibility.

Gaza – Vivisection of a Death Cult

20-07-2014 17:37

It is internal Israeli issues, intimidations integrated into its ill intentions, or other omissions of originality, which use to be rendered as the explanation regarding Palestinian suffering under Israeli militarism. This is true as to the aspect that it defines a stringent edge against the reactionary propaganda the militarist terror was a plausible interaction with Palestinian patterns of behaviour. The steep ridge marking the line beyond which the imperialist war narrative unwinds into self-contradiction and emptiness, that in the subconscious panic of the occupier probably provided the inspiration for the distraction campaign of a militarism-driven expedition of terror, is indeed the most conspicuous element of what appears to be an attempt of collective suicide of an artificial satellite state. It is at that point where an international agreement failure turns into an occurrence of moronic lemmings, as symbolised by the Israeli war against Gaza, which Karl Marx, had he lived to experience it, might have described as a farcical reproduction of the German World War, with a mosquito of a street crime inflated to the proportions of an elephant of an international crisis. Of course this also makes every minor lack of transparency in the militarist narrative a huge affair, as already the Kaiser noticed once his war plan came to fail.

Wrexham: Naming the Gaza Dead at Barclays Bank

19-07-2014 22:32

The second Gaza solidarity action in Wrexham this week was held outside Barclays Bank today to protest Barclays' investments in the arms trade and in Israel. See also this Indymedia report and photos from last Thursday. Barclays is the single largest global investor in the arms trade and the only high street bank with significant direct investments in Israeli companies. Based on the breadth of Barclays arms investments, it seems safe to assume that Barclays makes a financial profit for every death in Gaza. On that basis, we stood at the entrance to the bank and read out the entire list of names published by Al Jazeera of those killed by Israel in the Gaza strip since July 7th, adding after each one: "Barclays Bank profited from this death."

Wrexham: Standing in solidarity with Gaza & protesting Barclays Bank

18-07-2014 08:00

As Israel continues to shower death and destruction on the oppressed Palestinians in occupied Gaza, it's hard to know what to do, how to resist. My inbox is full of forwarded Stop the War Coalition emails advertising their disingenuously entitled Gaza Emergency Appeal, highlighted in red 'emergency' lettering at the top of their website. Clicking through reveals that the emergency in the StWC camp is funding their own activities and keeping their London office staffed.

Protesting at the Israeli Embassy is a great idea if you live within striking distance or feel motivated to make the journey, with or without the help of Stop the War's 'Gaza Emergency' fund. If not, how about something closer to home? Every High Street has a Barclays...

UG#687 - Is 50 Years Enough? (The JFK assassination and the 9-11 Attacks)

13-07-2014 05:15

This week we conclude Mark Gorton's Fifty Years of the Deep State, which centers on 9/11, though it pursues avenues which we have not explored much on the show before. This is accompanied by veteran Deep Politics researcher, Peter Dale Scott, speaking on the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Numerous parallels present themselves between the 9/11 and the JFK assassination, from the set up to the government cover-up commissions that strove in the face of huge evidence to the contrary to forge a shallow political narrative.

Beautiful but wounded Gaza

12-07-2014 00:15

Gaza, July 11, Israel launched a new aggression\operation\offensive against Gaza and decided to name “Protective Edge” also known as “Solid Rock”. Israeli warplanes, tanks, drones and warships participated in bombing places across Gaza all day long. This makes it the third Israeli open war against Gaza in 5 years or less. This isn’t a report, this is a personal account of what I lived today through the third day of Israel’s new aggression on Gaza.
