Varshavsky Warehouse Squat Case: St Petersburg Anarchist Black Cross statement on criminal charges against Denis Levkin
Denis Levkin has been imprisoned since February 2013. He was detained
when the police stormed the squatted warehouse near the former
Varshavsky Station in St Petersburg, Russia, and charged under article
318 part 2 of the Russian Criminal Code (use of violence dangerous for
health or life against an officer). St Petersburg anarchists have taken
an active part in occupation and defence of the warehouse, and the St
Petersburg Anarchist Black Cross cannot ignore the trial in Levkin's
case, which is now under way.
E' un po' di tempo che si parla del Confederalismo Democratico nel Kurdistan.

In questa intervista si sviluppano i temi di questa idea anti-statalista che si basa in parte sulle idee di Murray Bookchin espresse come Ecologia Sociale e Municipalismo Libertario. Si tratta della prima parte di in un'intervista molto più amplia sulla complessa situazione del popolo curdo nei vari conflitti in cui si viene a trovare coinvolto. La prossima intervista uscirà tra alcune settimane.

It also focuses on the present and future of the CNT, and provides a decent overview of how the anarcosyndicalist union has been organizing since the beginning of the crisis in 2008.Despite the long path we still have to travel before the CNT once again becomes a reference point for the working class, over the past few years the union has definitely laid some solid ground that justifies optimism in this sense.
The Bangladeshi minimum wage board has, after long negotiations, announced a 76% increase in garment workers’ pay, applicable to all seven pay grades. This has quickly been hailed as a great victory by some observers. We’ll go into the details to show that it’s not the result the workers continue to demand and that any gains may not be long-lasting.
