La experiencia de Mujeres Libres: 80 años del surgimiento del feminismo anarquista organizado

Anarkismo.net - 28 July 2016 - 3:28pm
Ya han pasado 80 años del inicio de la Guerra civil Española y de la mayor experiencia histórica del movimiento anarquista. Para algunas autoras como Susan Brown y Peggy Kornneger el anarquismo al constituirse como una filosofía política que se opone a todas las relaciones de poder forzadas o coactivas, debería ser intrínsecamente feminista. Su originalidad teórica reside especialmente en su visión política y en no ser una corriente dogmática, por lo que se pueden encontrar una amplia gama de planteamientos libertarios al respecto de lo que es el feminismo, la posición de la mujer y la feminidad.

Bernie Sanders' insurgent populism has shaken the Democratic Party and it's not going away

Besides providing some powerful lines for Melania Trump's next speech, Michelle Obama reminded us this week how inspiring the Democrats can be at their best.

Indeed, while Donald Trump has grabbed political centre stage due to his sheer loutishness and the fierceness with which he's disemboweled the party of Abraham Lincoln, it may be the Democratic Party that is undergoing the more intriguing and far-reaching transformation.

The forces unleashed by Bernie Sanders hunger for a real populism, and they're unlikely to settle for anything less than a party that once again shows backbone against bellicose billionaires.

How's the 2016 U.S. presidential race treatin' ya?

Rabble.ca/ - 28 July 2016 - 11:12am

The U.S. presidential race is officially, officially on with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump battling to see who will be elected the apparent "leader of the free world."

How's the 2016 presidential race treatin' ya so far?

Choices Ugh. Is it over yet? I can't look. Pretty good! The RNC was a trainwreck and I cried when Bernie Sanders' brother nominated him. Meh. Two pretty dismal choices for America it seems. All right. Looking forward to watching the campaigns actually. They will no doubt be interesting! Horrible. Is this what democracy has come to? Great! GREAT. None of the above.

Did my eyes deceive me or was that really George W. Bush bebopping alongside the Obamas in Texas the other day?

The occasion was an attempt to bring some racial peace to a roiling America. The dancing was weird, especially for a solemn occasion, but I'm pretty sure it was Mr. Bush.

Funny, because I was convinced that he was actually in prison doing hard time for crimes against humanity and war crimes. Wishful fantasizing, I guess.

Call for transnational solidarity

Anarkismo.net - 28 July 2016 - 2:59am
Ideas are not evicted
The far-right bastards of syriza go smoothly hand in hand with ND (nea dimokratia, right-wing party in power before syriza’s election), anthimos (the metropolit, church’s highest officer in Thessaloniki) and all the rest pile of shit, consisting the long arm of repression. With a non-seen before operation of revenge against no border camp, they attack in the crack of dawn on families of refugees in their own homes and on the solidaries.

Κάτω τα χέρια από τις καταλήψεις
«Η Ιστορία κατευθύνεται από δυο μόνο αρχές. Το Κράτος και την κοινωνική επανάσταση, την επανάσταση και την αντεπανάσταση, που δεν πρόκειται ποτέ να φιλιώσουν αλλά έχουν εμπλακεί σε έναν αγώνα μέχρι θανάτου. Το Κράτος είναι το έγκλημα. Το μικρότερο και το λιγότερο επιθετικό Κράτος είναι εγκληματικό ακόμα και στα όνειρά του…»

Ένας χρόνος από την σφαγή στο Suruç

Anarkismo.net - 28 July 2016 - 2:08am
Ένας χρόνος έκλεισε σήμερα από την βομβιστική επίθεση στο Suruç στη Ν.Τουρκία στα σύνορα με το Kobane. Οι εκδηλώσεις μνήμης που είχαν προγραμματιστεί για το περασμένο Σαββάτο 16/07 ακυρώθηκαν, καθώς την προηγούμενη ημέρα η απόπειρα πραξικοπήματος στην Τουρκία συμπίεσε μεγάλης κλίμακας ιστορικά γεγονότα σε διάστημα λίγων ωρών. Όλες αυτές τις μέρες οι μόνοι που νιώθουν άνετα να κυκλοφορούν όλο το εικοσιτετράωρο μέσα στην πόλη είναι οι οπαδοί του κόμματος AKP και οργανωμένοι ή σκόρπιοι εθνικιστές ή φανατικοί ισλαμιστές που συμμετέχουν στην περιφρούρηση και την προστασία της πολύ- αμφιλεγόμενης τουρκικής “δημοκρατίας”.

Next weekend the Greens will make a final decision on whether they support the principles underlying a half-century old Supreme Court of Canada decision outlawing discriminatory land-use policies.

The world of feminism nowadays is... saturated.

Women are leaning in, #girlbosses are getting that money, period-friendly underwear is readily available, #GirlsCan empower themselves with bombshell lipstick and oh so much more.

But, is this feminism?

When did feminism start meaning that consumption was the most revolutionary act? Marketplace feminism has been creeping in for quite a while and it's time to put it in its place.

After years of experiencing human rights only in the classroom, I have been full of emotions over the past eight months as I watched over 100 people who are homeless forced to fight for their community and basic rights.
