The Duterte regime in the Philippines has intensified attacks against the trade union movement.


The Education International is particularly concerned about the harassment and repression targetting its affiliate, the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT).

Several ACT offices were raided by the police and at least one ACT provincial coordinator was arrested in a new crackdown against unions and civil society organisations in the country.

The repression operations are ongoing, and ACT fears that more of their members could be targeted.

The union had to close offices to ensure the security of its staff, members and officers.

The anti-union climate has caused unionists, teachers and academics to fear for their rights and safety.

As a result, the Education International has launched this new campaign on LabourStart to protest against the repression and to show support for the teachers' union in the Philippines:

Hong Kong Wears Black

A film telling of the Hong Kong insurrection, by Ross Domoney …


October 1 was the 70th anniversary of the people’s republic of China. On this occasion, up to one million people came out to protest. Nearly all demonstrators wore black and the frontline was occupied by a black bloc of over 10,000-strong, ready to resist and fight the police. It was the first time that Hong Kong police shot a live round at a protester, taking the crisis to a new level.

Ross Domoney was there with his video camera to capture the day as it unfolded.

“The Battle against anti-Semitic ideology and its understanding of ‘fetishized anti-capitalism’ is an integral part of any emancipatory and communist effort. 81 years later, we still remember that night’s crime in November 9 1938.

81 years passed since that terrible night on November 9th, 1938, which marked the beginning of systematic acts of extermination of #Jews throughout #Europe. Following the defeat of the communist movement in Germany and the seizure of power by the Nazi party in 1933, anti-Semitic policies were introduced under Hitler’s regime. Over half-million Jews living in Germany were transformed by the regime into scapegoats for all the problems the country: the defeat in World War I, hyperinflation (1921-1923) and the Great economic Depression of the 1930s. The culmination of this crime was #Auschwitz... Show more...
 

The Cop-Attacking Chilean Dog Who Became a Worldwide Symbol of Protest


The recent uprising in Chile is full of references to the beloved Negro Matapacos, who accompanied protestors for many years. As his legend spreads, so too do images of the good boy.




The streets of #Santiago are once again alive with the spirit of #revolution. For weeks now, #working-class Chileans have occupied national monuments, blocked major intersections, and torched subway cars in protest of widespread #inequality. They desire full #... Show more...

Exarchia: The struggle continues !


Given the daily police violence that has intensified since the beginning of the occupation of the rebel and solidarity neighbourhood of Athens:

“We will soon have deaths in Exarchia”

This sentence is repeated by many this morning, in a corner of the neighborhood where we have lunch with a few inhabitants, taking stock of the situation. An old anarchist companion is convinced that we are going to relive 1985 or 2008. In those years, a young activist was murdered by a policeman, and with each act of violence provoking very important riots. In December 2008, power shook. More than 300 banks and luxury stores burned. Parliament was besieged.

Today, the atmosphere is not the same in society, but ... Full Story Here

An App for Ejecting the Homeless and way to fight back !!

The Find It, Fix It app was originally designed to allow community members to report potholes, dumping, signal issues, and other neighbourhood problems. But the app has warped into a powerful instrument for high-tech community patrolling, enabling individuals to homeless encampments.

The dearth of affordable housing is a major cause of homelessness here, where a tech boom led by Amazon has helped push home prices up by 19 percent a year.

Making homeless people invisible has deep roots in Seattle, especially in the years following the “Amazon boom” that began in 2012. Rather than eradicate homelessness at its root, the city’s strategy thus far has been to sweep the homeless from public view; destroying their encampments, issuing tickets for their vehicles, and installing hostile architecture that keeps people from sleeping on benches an

Are you someone who used to play videogames, but stopped b/c you lost interest for some reason? I'd like to talk to you. For a thing. Plz RT
— David Wolinsky (@davidwolinsky) December 10, 2014

What is this?


Don't die started because I found the conversation around videogames online to be stifling. It's repetitive, dehumanizing, and typically fixated on consumer goods -- videogames as products, not the creative products of individuals.

So in January 2015 I set about talking to people who make videogames and people who used to play them, focusing on certain problems and misperceptions within the industry. Nine months and more than 100 interviews later, it is abundantly clear don't die is growing beyond the perspectives these two groups can provide. The questions are getting bigger.

Norway, the fascinating land of glaciers and fjords, midnight sun and trolls. 🌍
.
And the land of electrical cars. In Norway, in 2018 nearly every third sold new car is driven electronically (source: CAM, Reuters, Statista) and thus worldwide leading. Norway had set itself the goal to increase this number significantly within the next decade, selling only electrical driven cars in 2025. This is supposed to decrease CO2 emissions arising from the transport sector drastically when charged with renewable energy. .
At the same time, the success of electrical cars is inseparably linked to excessive demands of raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, graphite. Most mineral deposits are located in developing countries. Mining is responsible for serious health risks among workers, deforestation, erosions. Thus, every sold electrical car has a reverse side, far away in another part of the world. Wrote my bachelor thesis on this topic some years ago, so I won't bring up some outdated numbers now.

Officials in Virginia say a 19-year-old woman died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the face while her hands were cuffed behind her back
Sarah Wilson was handcuffed during a traffic stop in Chesapeake, Virginia, on July 25, 2018, when she took a gun out of her boyfriend's car, "contorted" her body, and shot her self, Chesapeake Police Spokesman Leo Kosinski told WAVY in August 2018. On Friday, after an official investigation into the incident, Virginia's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed to WAVY that Wilson committed suicide and died from an "intra-oral gunshot wound." At the time of Wilson's death, Kosinski said that one officer involved in the traffic stop was wearing a body camera but it had been knocked offline. source here

If lipstick distresses you, you're the problem.

In response, over 5,000 Weibo users rallied around the woman, posting pictures of themselves in full goth make-up with the hashtag ‘#ASelfieForTheGuangzhouMetro.’ In response to this outcry, the Guangzhou subway has since apologized, and a staff member has been suspended.

Being tormented for how they look is something goths the world over are all too familiar with, the most notable and tragic case of this being the murder of Sophie Lancaster in 2007.

Anarchist prisoner, Soheil Arabi


\

Soheil Arabi’s, the Iranian anarchist, message from prison on the
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.\

“Humanity deserves the best

Speak of fighting violence against women! Of women’s struggle against
oppression, discrimination, and violence by society; Of violence in Evin
and Qarchak to the Varamin hunger strike; Of the abuse and threats
interrogators make against women; Of tears shed at meetings; Combating
violence against women is, without a doubt, one of the most important
demands of the liberation movement and we are all fighting against
gender discrimination.\
\
The discrimination that systems have taught us where women are men’s
property and tools to serve them. This was the thought that had me
ashamed of silence.

Silence against violence is betrayal. Rise up and shout: Shout, “my
mother does not deserve violence, my sister and I do not deserve
misogyny”.

Today is the Dutch \#activist and \#anarchist Joke Kaviaar arrested and send to jail. She must stay in jail for 71 days.

Joke is also active on Mastodon (and therefore the Fediverse) under the alias @.

Her arrest was not a surprise, cause she lost earlier this month her last appeal. She must go to jail cause she first published alleged seditious texts, criticizing in her unique creative style the Dutch \#asylum policy. The second reason was an action in a municipal council chamber against the \#deportation of children and their families. So yes, she has to go to jail because of a now forbidden text and a non-violent action.

Oliver Tambo: Have You Heard From Johannesburg




Trailer 2

Have You Heard From Johannesburg tells the untold story of Oliver Tambo—who lived a life on the principles of ethics, compassion, inclusion, social justice and equality—the man behind the release of Nelson Mandela and the end of apartheid in South Africa.

Described as one of the world’s greatest statesmen, his strategy to the international community to isolate and sanction the apartheid regime created the most globalized human rights struggle of the 20th century. Regarded as a terrorist in the West, he was hunted by the South African government’s assassins. He narrowly escaped death at their hands, and succeeded in leading the overthrow of apartheid and fathered the new constitution of a democratic South Africa.
