north africa / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Friday April 01, 2011 - 06:14 by Tariq Ali
The US-Nato intervention in Libya, with United Nations security council cover, is part of an orchestrated response to show support for the movement against one dictator in particular and by so doing to bring the Arab rebellions to an end by asserting western control, confiscating their impetus and spontaneity and trying to restore the status quo ante.

La situació a Líbia és molt complexa, això és evident. Per això fa falta una anàlisi, no n’hi ha prou amb les reaccions instintives –en un sentit o l’altre– d’alguns sectors dels moviments socials i d’esquerres occidentals. Amb aquestes notes no es pretén oferir una resposta completa i final, sinó aportar elements que ens ajudin a decidir què hem de dir i, encara més important, fer, ara mateix. ... read full story / add a comment

Para que estemos claros de entrada, Muammar Gadafi no es mi taza de té: hace décadas que le tiré la cadena a los líderes providenciales, insustituibles, mesiánicos, infalibles, eternos. Mi compromiso político no tiene nada que ver con la iconografía critpto-religiosa que adoran los creyentes en el dios mercado y los practicantes del culto a la personalidad. Ese tipo de zigotos me la suda, los de “izquierda” y los de derechas. ... read full story / add a comment

Sería realmente edificante imaginar que la Resolución 1973 [1] del Consejo de Seguridad de las Naciones Unidas, votada el pasado miércoles, tenía sólo por objeto apoyar al asediado movimiento anti-Muamar Gadafi mediante una zona de exclusión aérea, logística, alimentos, ayuda humanitaria y armas. Esa sería la prueba de que la “comunidad internacional” realmente “está al lado del pueblo libio en su lucha por los derechos humanos universales”, según palabras de la embajadora de Estados Unidos Susan Rice. ... read full story / add a comment

north africa / community struggles / non-anarchist press Wednesday February 23, 2011 - 15:26 by Peter Hallward
In different ways in different places (including most dramatically some places that until very recently were often taken for granted as among the most "docile" and "stable" countries around), people all over the world are rediscovering a principle at work in every revolutionary sequence: if we are willing to act in sufficient numbers and with sufficient determination, we already have all the power we need to devise and impose our own alternative. If we are determined to pursue it, we now have an opportunity to help change the world. ... read full story / add a comment

In 1961 Frantz Fanon wrote, from Tunisia, “The colonial world is a world cut into two....The town belonging to the colonized people, or at least the native town, the Negro village, the medina, the reservation, is a place of ill fame, peopled by men of evil repute. They are born there, it matters little where or how; they die there, it matters not how or where.” Fifty years later cities are still divided into separate zones for those who count and those who don't count. ... read full story / add a comment

Since yesterday, and actually earlier, middle-class activists have been urging Egyptians to suspend the protests and return to work, in the name of patriotism, singing some of the most ridiculous lullabies about "let's build new Egypt," "let's work harder than even before," etc. In case you didn't know, actually Egyptians are among the hardest working people in the globe already. Those activists want us to trust Mubarak's generals with the transition to democracy -- the same junta that has provided the backbone of his dictatorship over the past 30 years. And while I believe the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, who receive $1.3 billion annually from the US, will eventually engineer the transition to a "civilian" government, I have no doubt it will be a government that will guarantee the continuation of a system that will never touch the army's privileges, keep the armed forces as the institution that will have the final say in politics (as for example in Turkey), guarantee Egypt will continue to follow the US foreign policy, whether it's the undesired peace with the Apartheid State of Israel, safe passage for the US Navy in the Suez Canal, the continuation of the Gaza siege, or exports of natural gas to Israel at subsidized rates. A civilian government is not about cabinet members who do not wear military uniforms. A civilian government means a government that fully represents the Egyptian people's demands and desires without any intervention from the brass. And I see this as hard to be allowed, let alone accomplished, by the junta. ... read full story / add a comment
north africa / community struggles / non-anarchist press Monday January 31, 2011 - 19:57 by Mazin Qumsiyeh
As I watched last night Hosni Mubarak make his (hopefully last) speech, I was very much reminded of the last speech of the Shah of Iran, Marcos of the Philippines, Bin Ali of Tunisia. They all claimed after so many years of torturing their own people that they now want to "reform". The US funded and supported the brutal Mubarak regime for over 30 years even as plenty of evidence from human rights organizations documented its abuse of its own citizens... ... read full story / add a comment

The new Ghanouchi government, formed the evening of January 27, following the visit of US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman to Tunis, has started its project for a vast and brutal repression of the leading forces of the Tunisian Revolution. ... read full story / add a comment

At the moment it is abundantly easy to sense everywhere in the Arab World elation at what appears to be one of greatest events in modern Arab history. A genuine popular revolution, spontaneous and apparently leaderless, yet sustained and remarkably determined, overthrew a system that by all accounts had been the most entrenched and secure in the whole region. The wider implications beyond Tunisia are hard to miss. Just as in the case of the Iranian revolution more than three decades ago, what is now happening in Tunisia is watched by all in the Arab world--as either a likely model of the transformation to come in their respective countries, or at least as a badly needed source of revolutionary inspiration. ... read full story / add a comment

afrique du nord / divers / autre presse libertaire Friday November 20, 2009 - 15:55 by Comité de Soutien aux Militants de L’UGET
La répression des autorités tunisiennes à l’égard de la Centrale syndicale estudiantine (UGET) ne cesse de s’intensifier. Les militants de l’UGET sont quotidiennement victimes de harcèlement, d’intimidations et de violations de toutes formes. Les Conseils de disciplines, n’hésitant pas à exclure des Universités tout étudiant désirant jouir de la liberté de l’action syndicale, sont d’ores et déjà des structures répressives ayant pour but de dissuader les étudiants de toute activité syndicale et revendicative. ... read full story / add a comment
north africa / workplace struggles / non-anarchist press Friday March 27, 2009 - 15:41 by Ahmed
Not a day goes by in Egypt without demonstrations, strikes, sit-ins and clashes between workers and the police.

Textile workers have been at the forefront of the struggles, as factory bosses are seeking to cut wages and pressure workers to leave. The most serious was the strike last month in Mahalla over low pay and rising prices. Three people were killed during the protests, 80 were injured and about 400 arrested.

Agricultural bosses in Morocco are orchestrating a strong offensive against trade union rights. The current impact of the crisis should, according to them, be supported by farmers. The case of the company MARISSA (Franco-Moroccan private company owned by the AZURA group) speaks for itself.

By hatred or contempt, or by revenge, dozens of workers - from them trade unionists affiliated to the Moroccan Working Union Marocaine du Travail (National Federation of the Agricultural Sector) - were dismissed by the Maraissa company (Azura Group) whose headquarters are located in Chtouka / Region of Agadir. ... read full story / add a comment

north africa / miscellaneous / non-anarchist press Monday May 05, 2008 - 23:57 by Int'l Textile, Garment and Leather Workers’ Federation
The global trade union representing textile workers today described as ‘inevitable mass murder arising from employer greed and official negligence’ the fire which raged through the Rosamor mattress factory in Casablanca on Saturday killing 54 workers. It called for murder charges to be brought against those responsible, not only the owners but also officials in government ministries and agencies who had ignored worker abuse and safety hazards in the factory. ... read full story / add a comment
