Abdullah Muhsin and the Iraqi Working Class.

13-10-2004 19:28

While protesting that they oppose the occupation, the IFTU have gone out of their way to drum up support for Iyad Allawi, subvert British trade union policies against the occupation, and urge trade union delegates to the Labour conference to vote for the prolongation of the occupation (which, comically enough, the person responsible manages to deny despite documentary proof being available to all)... who are the IFTU and what is motivating them?

Jerusalem: The “City of Peace”

13-10-2004 18:43

This week I was reminded of just how far the names of cities in Palestine are from the realities of how life is in those cities. Jerusalem is the “City of Peace,” and it’s Arabic name, Al Quds, means “The Holy.” Hebron, in Hebrew and in Arabic—Hevron and al Khalil—both mean “Friend”; not the first word which springs to mind when you think of the tragedy there.

The struggle of the Venepal workers (Venezuela)

13-10-2004 17:01

On September 7, 2004, the owners of Venepal, a paper mill in Morón, Carabobo, in Venezuela, decided to cease their operations and not pay their 400 workers their wages. This is not the first time something like this has happened. A year ago the company took the same decision alleging financial difficulties. At that time the workers decided to occupy the premises in a bitter eleven-week struggle. Now they are demanding that the government nationalises the company and puts it under workers’ control and management. This is an extremely important struggle which could be crucial for the future of the labour movement and the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela.

We shall now quote a couple of notes from that issue that express the essence of the venezuelan anarchists' perspective.
