Thu, 02/27/2014 - 5:09pm
The February 21th, we wrote a summary of events for those who are on the outside, oversaturated with information about Venezuela, we needed a chronology of events. It has just 4 days of this story, but there are many new elements that an update is necessary to suggest, that any picture of the Venezuelan reality will change in the next few hours. ---- The first element that stands out is that the manifestations of government critics have continued to the time of this writing, and doesn't seems to stop in the coming days. Venezuelan culture was characterized by the effort to promote short-term results, no permanence in time, so that the sum of each new day of protest politics, contradict itself this immediacy of "doing" in the country. That is why President Maduro uses as one of its strategies encourage its rapid wear, increasing two more days to holiday carnival that ...

This is where I learned everything. I was appreciated for my skills and my strength. It's true, I can say that I have never been sick. I am a great athlete. I am strong for my 40 years. ---- Then one of my best colleagues embarked putting himself on his own. Starting his business well, he took me with him.

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 12:42pm
Two weeks ago, Nosotros los Pobres had the good fortune to host a presentation by two members of the Federacion de Estudiantes Libertarias of Chile, with whom we had a very productive exchange of ideas. Soon after that, I saw a statement published by the FEL, commenting on the situation in Venezuela, in which they expressed sympathy for the “Venezuelan people” in their resistance against a coup d’etat.

(en) El Libertario: Twelve F.A.Q. about what is happening in Venezuela (ca)

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 6:43am
1) Are the protests in Venezuela led by opposition parties on the right? ---- No. The current wave of protests began in the city of San CristÃbal (Tachira) on Feb. 4 when students denouncing security issues on the university campus were met with repression and several were jailed. The consequent protests focused on liberating the detained students, spread to other cities and were also met with repression, intensifying student unrest. It was in this context that a faction of the opposition launched a proposal for street demonstrations dubbed ÂLa Salida to demand President MaduroÂs resignation, while another faction opposed the idea of street demonstrations focused on this larger, single demand. Despite the arrest of the conservative politician Leopoldo LÃpez, the widespread protests all over the country have overwhelmed and Âsurpassed on the left the opposition political ...

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 5:00am
The Israeli media is nearly obsessed with the escalation of the B.D.S. as if they know things they do not disclose. Both supporters and rejectors of the end of the occupation start to regard it as immanent and not in the far future. A section of the Israeli capitalist elite which is suffering from the boycott and fear its escalation start to organize to accelerate the end of occupation. 100 of them traveled for the Dabus conference and official organization was established. On the ground, it seems that the efforts of the Israeli state forces escalate their repression of on going struggles and make more efforts to transfer villagers from strategic locations.

(en) An anarchist critique of horizontalism by by Andrew Flood - WSM

Mon, 02/24/2014 - 11:59am
Horizontalism is an emerging term used to describe the key common characteristics of the waves of rebellion of the last decade. Occupy in 2011 was the peak to date but the term Horizontalism itself appears to originate the rebellion in Argentina after the 2001 banking crisis there. Marina Sitrin in her book on that rebellion says the term (in Spanish obviously) was used to describe the neighborhood, workplace & unemployed assemblies that emerged to form "social movements seeking self-management, autonomy and direct democracy." ---- Horizontalism is a practice rather than a theory, which is to say in the various writings that use the term it has been described in practice rather than theorised as an ideal. It's easiest to see the practice in the context of the assembly-based movements that have come and gone since the rebellion in Argentina. ...

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #235 - Taxation: bluff "big bang tax" (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Mon, 02/24/2014 - 5:59am
Jean-Marc Ayrault announced in November a tax revolution. Already promised by candidate Hollande, the reform is bound to be emptied of all content to please the powerful. ---- In an interview with newspaper Les Echos , November 18, Jean-Marc Ayrault said: "The time is ripe for an overhaul, seamlessly, our tax system." This announcement, however, risk of spritz. As Le Parisien wrote on 13 December, "Jean-Marc Ayrault (...) saw his big bang tax reduced to a trickle by the Head of State." What remains to the agenda? "Side households Elysee evokes tax loopholes and a possible broadening of the base of the CSG (general social contribution) based on income. And business side, a possible overhaul of the corporate tax, a cleaning scrub 150 levies on businesses, or the headache of financing reform Medicare." ...
