Sth Korean soldiers walk among dead political prisoners in Daejon

In recent days we have seen an escalation in tension betwen the two Koreas which is being presented by Western countries as an intolerable aggression on the part of the dictatorial, bellicose northern State against their democratic, peaceful neighbours. We think it might be interesting to present to our readers a text from our regular contributor Wayne Price, as a way to better understand the current situation and the reasons behind today's divided Korea.

At this stage we would support a mediated solution which sees the Korean people themselves, on both sides of the border, as main players, with no external interference or decisions made behind their backs. Such a solution would be the only way to open the door to a united, socialist, democratic and free Korea and guarantee, in this way, a sustainable peace with social justice.

Declaración del Colectivo La Libertad que nos llega desde Costa Rica relativa a la creciente militarización del área Centro América-Caribe, la creciente represión al movimiento popular y a cualquier forma de protesta social y su posición ante la autorización para el estacionamiento de miles de marines yanquis en territorio de Costa Rica. Solidaridad y Fuerza.

Desde inicios de julio de este año, trabajadoras y trabajadores bananeros, campesinos e indígenas de la provincia de Changuinola en Bocas de Toro (Panamá), permanecían en huelga en defensa de derechos laborales básicos amenazados por las llamadas Ley Chorizo y Ley Carcelazo aprobadas por el gobierno derechista y militarista de Martinelli.

Más de 4000 trabajadores afiliados a la Confederación de Trabajadores de la República de Panamá y 700 trabajadores de Convergencia Sindical, se manifestaban el 8 de julio repudiando la eliminación del derecho a huelga, la restricción de la libertad sindical, la penalización con cárcel de la protesta y la eliminación de las cuotas sindicales, cuando fueron brutalmente reprimidos por fuerzas policiales que luego del garrote y la violencia dejaron un saldo de 7 personas muertas, más de 100 hospitalizadas y cerca de 30 detenidas.

How can we understand the American presence in Costa Rica? The USA is in fact in the process of militarizing the whole Caribbean area, something which is crucial to the process of rebuilding America's dog-eared hegemony in Latin America. Indeed, this has been one of the key policy objectives of the Obama administration.

On 1st July, the parliament of Costa Rica approved a US request for permission to station between 7,000 and 13,000 US troops (the precise number is still uncertain) on its territory. The troops will arrive in 46 warships. This request, backed by Laura Chinchilla's government and the parties who support her, would be covered under the Security Section of the Free Trade Agreement between Costa Rica and the USA which was signed despite significant popular resistance after a rigged referendum in 2007. The excuse being given to justify this extraordinary presence of US troops is the fight against drug trafficking, a sort of catch-all expression normally used throughout the region to justify any outrage against the local population or any interference that Washington feels the need to indulge in. But is drugs really the issue at stake?

كسبت الأفكار الأناركية و التحررية موطئ قدم في منطقتنا , لكنها ما تزال حبيسة دائرة ضيقة جدا من الناشطين , عدا عن أنها لم تضطلع بعد بدورها كسلاح فكري و سياسي بيد الجماهير المضطهدة على طريق انتزاع حريتها . إن الحاجة لترجمة هذه الأفكار إلى برامج نضالية ملحة الآن ليس فقط لنشر أفكار التحررية بين هذه الجماهير بل لتقوم بالدور المفترض بها كسلاح بيد الجماهير ضد مضطهديها . إن وضع مانيفيستو أناركي تحرري عن فلسطين يشكل بشكل أو بآخر مانيفيستو عن منطقتنا بأسرها و مقدمة ضرورية لمانيفيستو أناركي تحرري للأناركيين العرب و للجماهير العربية . و أرى أن الرفاق الأردنيين , بعلاقتهم الخاصة بقضية فلسطين , و الإسرائيليين و ناشطي أناركيين ضد الجدار هم الأقدر على وضع الأفكار الأولية لمثل هذا المانيفيستو الذي يحتاج بعد ذلك لنقاش واسع و حر يشمل كل أناركي أو منظمة أناركية مهتمة .

The expansion of the US attack on Afghanistan and Pakistan is not due to the personal qualities of Obama but to the social system he serves: the national state and the capitalist economy. The nature of the situation guarantees that the system will act irrationally. Anarchists should participate in building a broad movement against the war, while raising our political program.

In discussing President Obama’s expansion of the US attack on Afghanistan and Pakistan, it is important not to focus on Obama as a personality but on the social system to which he is commited, specifically to the war-waging capitalist national state. “War is the health of the state,” as Randolph Bourne declared during World War I. It is what the national state is for, what it does, and why it still exists, despite the real trends toward international unity and worldwide coordination. In an age of nuclear bombs, the human race will not be safe until we abolish these states (especially the big, imperial, ones such as those of North America, Western Europe, and Japan) and replace them with a federation of self-managing associations of working people.
