The euphoria has evaporated. While today's raucous political climate is very different than the years before Hosni Mubarak's ouster, when an enforced silence and stillness prevailed, it has also changed markedly since the period immediately preceding and following his 11 February forced resignation. Now, among the millions who participated in or supported that revolt and more broadly, there is a feeling that the situation is becoming increasingly complex, unsettled and dangerous. Marches, strikes, sit-ins and other protests happen every day, but many ordinary people are becoming more passive. There is a chill in the air that comes from more than the approaching winter. read full story / add a comment

Gurdgiev makes the false assumption that capitalism isa rational system that serves the interests of all citizenry if rationally organised. Like the reformists on the Left he believes that a reformed capitalist social system can advance the interests of the capitalist class, middle and working class. In this way he is an idealist reformist who mistakenly believes that reason (ideas) can determine social reality. To achieve economic recovery he argues that that there must be a massive reduction in state spending on a scale that makes past and present governments' reductions look lilliputian. He shows here his failure to understand the nature and function of state spending under capitalism. read full story / add a comment

How the movement can be expanded and taken forward

Oakland City Council's phony concerns exposed. How can we broaden the OWS movement? The most important achievement of the OWS movement so far is that it has shifted the national debate about the economic crisis. OWS has put the hedge fund managers, banks, speculators and other wasters who are responsible for the mess we are in on the defensive. The OWS movement has also reintroduced the tactics that built the Unions and the civil rights movement in the Apartheid South-----mass direct action and defiance of the law----and has brought the nature of the system to the front burner. Capitalism, the so-called free market and possible alternatives to its madness are being discussed by millions of Americans. read full story / add a comment

We the 99% of ireland, demand a sovereign republic, free of corporate control. We demand control of all natural resources within our land and sea borders. We demand a setting up of a non-usurious national bank, printing debt-free money and acting as a utility for the people only. We demand a court system acting under a natural system of law which mirrors the Brehon system of our ancestors. We demand all corporations be held accountable for all serious breach of the law. We demand all men/women on this Island have access to the freedoms that were the original intention of the creation of the Republic. read full story / add a comment

Eoghan Harris destroyed Gay Mitchell's campaign by advising him to launch a reactionary blueshirt assault on Martin McGuinness. See:

Gay Blueshirt Mitchell becomes Eoghan Harris's candidate
http://www.indymedia.ie/article/100648

Never a man to allow sentiment to delay him, Harris switched at the last minute to the one reactionary he thought would win, Sean Gallagher. Just like in 1997 when 'tribal time bomb' Mary McAleese won, the Harris touch turned to dust.

Higgins will win and Martin McGuinness will elect him on transfers - the worst of all Harris worlds. Higgins lifted Section 31 censorship restrictions on Sinn Fein in 1994 and paved the way for the peace process and Sinn Fein electoral advance. Harris hated all of that. read full story / add a comment

Reformists clash with the revolutionaries for years on the methods of struggle against capitalism. The first group is criticized for its strategy of building a new society step by step. Revolutionaries say that it will never happen because real liberation requires radical action and confrontation with the enemy. But reformists say that revolutionary methods are based on short-term changes that lead to violence and it is never possible to predict the outcome of the revolution. read full story / add a comment

#OccupyEyreSquare: Public Awareness Day, today 1pm

Come along to hear some key speakers on issues relating to the economic MESS we are all facing! This will be a day of solidarity with Occupy protests taking place in over 1600 cities worldwide. Come and show your support and have YOUR voice heard. Live music, refreshments and fun to be had as well!

Occupy Galway is part of the international movement against austerity measures imposed on ordinary people around the world. We are all part of the 99% who, so far, have been subject to economic inequality and social injustice from the 1% who control the world's resources. We, the 99% demand:

1 - The removal of the IMF and ECB from all Irish financial affairs;
2 - That the national debt imposed on Irish people from the bank bailouts be lifted;
3 - The return of Irish resources (gas, oil, forestry) to the people of Ireland;
4 - Real particpatory democracy.

THIS IS NOT A RECESSION, IT'S A ROBBERY!!!

See you there! read full story / add a comment

This text was written by Madrilonia, a Madrid-based blog that writes about and participates in social movements. Madrilonia has been involved in the 15-M movement, which began with the mass protest organized by Real Democracy Now on the 15th of May 2011 and inspired Europe with the occupation of plazas across Spain. This text imagines a new form of strike across Europe and the Euro-Mediterranean region, a strike which is up to the task of confronting contemporary forms of exploitation and control.

Translated by Mick O’Broin, the Provisional University
