There is a growing number of insurrections across the planet. After the Gilets Jaunes started their insurrectionary resistance on the French territory, more and more people are resisting against capitalist neoliberal policies and the destruction of nature. As you might have noticed we have republished many texts about these insurrections on the Enough 14 blog, unfortunately we didn’t have much on the ground reporting this year. But we want to change that. In the Enough 14 Info-Café we organized a lot of screenings, info-events, debates and meetings. In the coming months we want to restart our independent on the ground reporting. We are also looking for a bigger space to relocate the Enough Info-Café.Continue reading The revolution will not be televised: Working On and Offline on the ground
Last Thursday, around 1 million people in France took part in nationwide demonstrations against the government’s plans to “reform” the pension system, i.e. raising the age of entry and cut pensions. (1) Only members of the police are to be excluded, as the government stated just before the 5th of December, after trade union representatives of the cops had declared that they also wanted to take part in the protests. Work stoppages occurred mainly in the public sector, train cancellations of the state railways were high, metros were rare in the Paris metropolitan area and many bus lines were also cancelled. Flight operations were also disrupted. There were also extensive work stoppages among teachers and health workers, who have been fighting for months for better working conditions and better pay. In the private sector, there were hardly any strike actions, but since Thursday, work has been suspended in the majority of the major oil refineries, here the majority of the workers are organized in the CGT and the workforces are one of the last bastions of the classic, militant working class. At the same time, roads and roundabouts have been blocked nationwide, although to a much lesser extent compared to the beginnings of the Gilets Jaunes movement.
A review of the first big day of action and the attack on the new “pension reform” from the point of view of a participant.
This is a translation of the German version which was translated by Sebastian Lotzer. The original report was published by Paris-Luttes.Continue reading “An impressive day” – review of the strike and demonstration in #Paris on December 5
This is part six in a series of interviews with people involved in the Notara 26 squat in Exarcheia, Athens. The struggle for the free spaces here is made up of people with very different backgrounds, life stories and ideas. We aim to record people’s own words without imposing our views – though of course we can’t escape our own perspectives, or the limits of translation. You will find the other interviews here.Continue reading Voices of #Notara26 Interviews from the struggle in #Exarcheia. Part 6: “This is nothing, it’s just a government”
Like previous films over the years, Love and the Revolution financed a significant part of the needs of the main places and collectives in the Exarcheia district of Athens, and about 70% of the resources provided by solidarity convoys. But after the end of the film tour, at the end of the winter, it’s over. We no longer have a regular source of funding to support places and collectives. Fortunately, thanks to you, we managed to save several members of Rouvikonas from prison during the spring. Then two of you helped us to restore the emergency fund to meet the following priorities. You will find information about how to support us at the end of the text that follows.Continue reading Call to support #Exarcheia and the fourth film by the #Anepos collective

Video by SubMedia. All power structures are rooted in ideology. A shared belief in this ideology is what keeps the structures of power in place. Under capitalism, the edifice of social control is built on the collective illusion of private property, and the sanctity of the so-called ‘free market’.Continue reading #SubMedia: What Is Property?
