Solidarity with the Rebellion in the RIF by the CNT

CNT in solidarity with the protests in the RIF

Source – National Confederation of Labor

For months, there have been protests in Alhucemas and other Rif cities in northern Morocco against the unjust treatment that the Moroccan state has given the population for decades. The corruption of the Moroccan state, the lack of public infrastructures in the region, the attack on the Rif  culture and language , the precarious conditions of life and the absence of freedom and autonomy to express themselves as a people.

Protests have increased as a result of the arrest of dozens of activists of the Popular Movement of Alhucemas, which raises the social and political demands of the Rif people through the peaceful mobilizations that are developing, and where women are increasingly prominent.

The prosecution requested five years in prison for a campaign of boycott El Corte Ingles

translated mostly from post below by Jesus Rodriquez, with thanks.

 The prosecution requested five years prison each for a boycott campaign of  the dept. store chain El Corte Inglés, which are upmarket stores histrorically controlled by far right anti-union commercial interests.

The three militants of the CNT Barcelona are accused of crimes of obstruction of justice and coercion in a boycott campaign started in the fall of 2015, which was in solidarity against the trial of two anarchists for picketing incidents at one of the stores back in the general strike of 29 March 2012.

The boycott was a success and the original 3 picketers were cleared, but then 24 people were accused of the Boycott, now reduced to only three, but demanding long sentences.   Continue reading “The prosecution requested five years in prison for a campaign of boycott El Corte Ingles”

‘SIDE BY SIDE, Facing Repression Together’ – New Campaign Launched

SIDE BY SIDE://colzeacolzeblog.wordpress.com

SIDE BY SIDE we confront Repression

Various anarchist groups have together launched the SIDE BY SIDE campaign . Let’s jointly face the repression and show solidarity with the people indicted more than two years ago in the so-called Operation Piñata, and other similar operations that, with the excuse of anti-terrorism, have attacked the anarchist movement.

SIDE BY SIDE, facing together the repression that seeks to dissuade us, immobilize us, discourage us. Together, not isolated. With the strength that we try to understand our differences and learn to find ourselves in complicities.
SIDE BY SIDE, that’s what we call this campaign, this cry of resistance, this new challenge to power. Another attempt to break the silence, to make visible the social conflict increasingly evident as a result of the sharpening of the structural crisis of the capitalist system.

How making language taboo can kill a movement

Denying reality: a dangerous delusion

Paul Cudenec  (This is the second essay in my latest book, Nature, Essence and Anarchy, published by Winter Oak Press)You can tell a lot about the metaphysical health of a society from the philosophical questions it asks itself.

In the case of our own culture, one of the best-known such questions is: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” The answer is quite obviously “yes” and the question is ridiculous on more than one level. For one thing, it is blindly anthropocentric, assuming that the presence of a human being somehow makes a unique difference to the reality of sound.

But even if the “no one” in the question includes the whole range of non-human living creatures that might have heard the hypothetical tree, the whole thing is still inherently absurd. The tree cannot fall silently. It will make a noise as it hits the ground, regardless of whether or not this is witnessed.

This so-called “philosophical puzzle” reflects a deep underlying problem with contemporary thinking, in that it potentially denies the existence of objective reality, suggesting that the crashing sound made by the tree may only become real if it is subjectively experienced by some “one”. Continue reading “Read: Denying reality: a dangerous delusion.. from Paul Cudenec’s ‘Nature, Essence and Anarchy’.”
