That a small country could defy the power of capitalist markets — the product of the aggregate interests of the world’s most powerful industrialists and financiers — is not realistic. Those markets are expressed through a variety of means, financial and political, through multilateral institutions and imperialist governments, through webs of debt and military pressure.

Mark Duggan murder: How the establishment did cover up a political killing?

09-01-2014 08:48

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley challenged by protesters outside the court
It takes one very simple sentence, to explain -how- an Inquest Jury in the High Court, erroneously produced the widely reported media headlines, that Mark Duggan was "lawfully" killed by the Metropolitan Police.

The Judge improperly -directed- the Inquest Jury, over what could be called evidence, and the Duggans' lawyers, did not properly challenge that.

Ultimately if the Duggan family had proper legal representation, a European Court ruling, would lead to the proper verdict of unlawful killing.

The Barbarian 2: international anarchist review from Greece

05-01-2014 09:59

Ruins of Athens
Just before the end of the year, we published the second issue of The Barbarian. please read it, print it, share it.

The Barbarian Review is a collection of thoughts written down by various foreign people in Athens: a few persons passing through a brief period of time, in a very special city.

It is no surprise that we have chosen to write in English, to better communicate the experience we have of being in, but not of, the Greek radical milieu, and it is to be hoped that this will be as rewarding for the Greek and non-Greek to read, as it has been for us to collect and write down our views.
