An Oil-driven War?

[Original article in Italian here] The oil price felt down in global markets from more than one hundred dollars to less than 70 in just 4-5 months: it is no small thing, and this trend looks far from being over. In the sub-Italian region few people are talking about this and in a wrong way, with ready-made explainations - apart from some rare exceptions - separating the topic from the whole systemic picture of global geopolitical tensions. In our country,…
La Bolonia digna, del mestizaje y de la solidariedad contra el brutal "Plan de vivienda" del Gobierno mantuvo sus promisas. Más de mil personas, primariamente ocupantes de habitaciones bajo el colectivo Social Log, activistas del Cas (Coléctivo Autonomo Estudiantil), universitarios del Cua (Coléctivo universitario Autonomo), trabajadores del sector logístico con el sindicado Si.Cobas, otros sindicados de izquierda y gente solidaria del barrio Navile se han encontrado en frente a la nueva ocupación de vivienda del Ex-telecom, la última de las…

The neofascist mafia hands on Rome

In our previous analysis we described the social rage boiling in the peripheries of Rome, and the neofascists' attempts to exploit them. New developments this week confirm some hypotheses of ours and help us to broad the picture. A judiciary inquiry on December 2 uncovered a massive ring of corruption in the capitol (dubbed 'Mafia Capitale' by the media), arresting a total of 37 people among fascists, politicians from government parties, criminals, entrepreneurs, corrupt police officers, public and private managers…

280 people occupy building in Bologna

As we are working on many important news from Italy during this period, we will integrate this nice report taken from Struggles in Italy with more infos and developments tomorrow, with a special broadcast of Koiné Dialektos - airing on Radio Infoaut at 5 pm CET time on Friday 12. Stay Tuned! A large building in Bologna, immediately in front of the Municipality’s offices, has just been occupied by 280 people. Many have been living on the streets or in…
As the media bubble of the Renzi government comes increasingly under attack and the oppressive character of the system (destruction of historical frameworks of social mediation like the mainstream trade unions; attacks against social opposition through eviction of occupied spaces and repression; criminal management of the natural disasters, letting them happen cyclically to safeguard the interests of the Capital) increases, new forms of conflict are emerging this fall 2014 in the peripheries of the main Italian metropolises. Two weeks ago…
On last saturday morning a demonstration was called up in front of the Carrara city hall, which was also attended by large numbers of citizens from nearby Massa. The action was born out of the umpteenth announced catastrophe: for three years now the territories between Massa and Carrara have been destroyed by repeated floods. In addition to the natural disasters, clear responsibilities have to be emphasized: cementificazione* and speculations allowed by the institutions. More than two thousands people attended the…

Open letter to the workers of Fiom*

We write these lines without knowing exactly to who we address them. To those of you who defend the little security you have accumulated after a life of grinding exploitation? To those of you that have a big family or have to pay for your children to go to University and then be unemployed afterwards? To those that live in deteriorating neighbourhoods because the councils are more concerned to build shops, congestion zones and luxury in the city centre? To…

The Good Flags

There are flags and there are flags. Some are empty symbols, frozen memories of times which no longer exist. Others have been put through the mill of consumption, social and political. There are also the flags of the markets, of nations and parties, of institutions and businesses. But there are also flags that tell stories of power relations and struggle, which are worth dying for. And there are flags, the fight against which, is worth dying for. There is nothing…

Proposals for an autumn of struggle

An autumn of struggle was initiated yesterday in Naples, with a spiritless aperitif. Confronted by the limited political resonance of the events (contrary to the widely held expectations) during the siege of the Central European Bank (CEB) Summit, we believe some reflections and proposals might be useful (given that, again, the autumn is before us). The first priority is to put into focus the social and economic situation at hand and its implications for our activities in all the Italian…
