américa del norte / méxico / cultura / non-anarchist press Monday January 14, 2013 - 23:22 by Jon Juanma
Estos días no dejamos de escuchar en los comercios, en la televisión o en las pistas de baile, la canción de moda del momento: el Gangnam Style de PSY. Con el videoclip de la canción, el artista surcoreano ha conseguido convertirse en el intérprete del vídeo más visto en Internet de todos los tiempos, superando holgadamente los mil millones de espectadores1. Sirva este ejemplo, o los más de 800 millones del “Baby” de la súper-estrella adolescente Justin Bieber2, para resaltar el poder de convocatoria social que tienen los videoclips entre los más jóvenes. Esta enorme capacidad de atracción de miradas y el poder social derivado de ella, sirven a las Industrias Culturales Hegemónicas (IICCHH) no solo para aumentar sus beneficios como empresas transnacionales, sino también para reproducir y ampliar la hegemonía burguesa en el mundo. Conformando sueños y modelos de vida, distraen a los jóvenes de las clases populares del decurso de su maltratado mundo real y proyectan sus esfuerzos (y su libido) hacia objetivos vacuos que en la mayoría de casos sólo les acarrearán frustraciones (como conseguir una chica o un chico tan guapos como los de los videoclips, acumular riquezas materiales o cultivar una competencia exacerbada respecto a sus semejantes). ... read full story / add a comment

2010 und 2011 hatten bastatistas vom Wuppertaler Recht auf Stadt Bündnis zweimal Aktivisten und Aktivistinnen der Bewegung der HüttendorfbewohnerInnen – Abahlali baseMjondolo – aus dem südafrikanischen Durban zu Gast, Seither besteht ein guter solidarischer Kontakt nach Südafrika. Nun erreichte uns eine Pressemitteilung von Abahlali baseMjondolo zum grauenvollen Massaker, das die südafrikanische Polizei in der letzten Woche an streikenden Minenarbeitern verübt hat. Für Abahlali baseMjondolo ist laut PM nun endgültig Schluss mit allen illusionen über die ANC-Regierung. Sie erklären, dass sie den Krieg, der gegen die Armen geführt wird, nun annehmen werden.

“La política es una guerra sin efusión de sangre, y la guerra, una política con efusión de sangre”.
Mao Zedong

Si ya es difícil que los medios de (des)información masivos nos hablen de revoluciones cuando no son del color de las naranjas, más complicado es que lo hagan de una que desprende un rojo tan intenso como la nepalí. Situada entre dos de las principales potencias mundiales, India y China, la revolución de este país de 30 millones de habitantes continúa dieciséis años después de que la insurgencia maoísta declarara la guerra a la monarquía en 1996. La revolución prosigue su camino, pero cada vez más como un rompecabezas que no cesa de fragmentarse. Hagamos un poco de memoria... ... read full story / add a comment
central asia / the left / non-anarchist press Tuesday June 19, 2012 - 23:35 by Alex de Jong
After ten years of Maoist insurgency and a coup d'état by the king in 2005, the Nepali people took to the streets in April 2006, forcing the king to hand power back to the parliament. It was the end of the only Hindu kingdom in the world but only a new step in the country's continuing political crisis. The Maoist party, the UCPN(M) has entered into a crisis itself and a split has become inevitable.

Abahlali baseMjondolo will return to the Durban magistrate’s court on Tuesday 3 May 2011 to support the twelve men who have become victims of the political conspiracy to disguise the reality of the armed attack on our movement that took place in the Kennedy Road settlement on the 26th and 27th of September 2009. That attack displaced hundreds of women, men and children and the resulting conflicts left some people with serious injuries and two people dead. ... read full story / add a comment

When we began our struggle in 2005 we said that struggle was a school. We declared that each settlement was not just a land occupation that had been organised under apartheid and that now had to defend itself against a democratically elected state aiming to drive the poor out of the cities. We declared that each settlement was also a community and, when it was democratised and people were freely discussing their lives and struggles together and as equals, it was also a kind of popular university. ... read full story / add a comment

The political interference around this case continued in the lead up to the start of the trial today. The prisoners were not brought to court and the state witnesses were not summoned to appear in court making it impossible for the trial to begin.

Neither the Investigating Officer nor the prosecutor could explain why the prisoners were not brought to the court or why the state witnesses had not been summoned to appear in court. ... read full story / add a comment

The Abahlali baseMjondolo commune in the Kennedy Road squatter camp was smashed late last year when the movement was attacked by an ethic militia organised by the local party structures and backed by the police and intelligence agencies. The movement has regrouped and recently organised a major protest on Jacob Zuma in downtown Durban despite severe intimidation. But the Kennedy Road settlement remains under ANC control and violent intimidation continues. ... read full story / add a comment

150 contract workers at National Print, in Westmead, Pinetown, have walked off the job. The night shift workers will also refuse to work tonight. The contract workers have decided to go on strike in protest at the attempt by the CEO to suddenly reduce their working hours and, therefore, their income. January is the month when poor families struggle to pay school fees and to buy school uniforms, books and stationery. This is a very bad time for people to suddenly lose most of their income. ... read full story / add a comment

Today the five members of the Kennedy Thirteen who are still in detention returned to court for their 7th attempt at requesting bail. On each of the 6 previous occasions the state failed to provide any evidence against the accused and the Magistrate postponed the bail application to give the state more time to produce some evidence of their guilt. On each case the state has failed to produce this evidence at the next hearing. This has led Bishop Rubin Phillip to call this case a 'travesty of justice '. ... read full story / add a comment
