„International Anarchism Gathering, St-Imier, Switzerland, 8-12 August 2012
original-link

All libertarians from the various anarchist movements around the world, and all those interested in learning more about anarchism, are invited to gather from August 8-12, 2012 in St-Imier in the Jura mountains in Switzerland.

We will be celebrating the 140th anniversary of the first congress of St-Imier that was held in 1872, when the St-Imier Anarchist International was created after anti-authoritarian members were expelled from Marx’s First International. Since then, the world has changed in some ways with the different libertarian currents evolving in various directions, an aspect that will be well represented at the gathering in St-Imier. Certainly, time has not diminished the ways in which the weakest in society are being oppressed by the most powerful, and the meeting will accordingly address the multitude of approaches to resist these forms of oppression.

„Internationales anarchistisches Treffen vom 8. bis 12. August 2012

Vom 8. bis 12. August 2012 wird in St-Imier (Berner Jura, Schweiz) ein internationales Treffen von Libertären aller Strömungen sowie von allen Personen, die die verschiedenen anarchistischen Bewegungen (besser) kennenlernen wollen, stattfinden.

Dieses „Welttreffen des Anarchismus“ ist eigentlich ein Jubiläum der ersten anti-autoritären Internationalen, die 1872 als Antwort auf die Internationale von Marx gegründet wurde. Seither hat sich die Welt ziemlich verändert, zumindest unter gewissen Gesichtspunkten, doch die libertären Strömungen konnten sich den Zeiten anpassen, wovon das Treffen zeugen wird. Eine Sache bleibt gewiss: Die Zeit hat in keiner Weise die Unterdrückung der Schwächsten durch die Mächtigen gemildert. Das Treffen wird diverse Wege des Widerstands in ihren verschiedenen Formen aufzeigen. […]“

„Encuentros Internacionales del anarquismo del 8 al 12 de agosto de 2012

Del 8 hasta el 12 de agosto de 2012 se celebrará en Saint-Imier (Jura Bernois, CH) un encuentro internacional de libertarios de todo tipo, así que de toda persona deseando enterarse o conocer mas las distintas esferas anarquistas.

Este „Mundial del Anarquismo“ será una comemoración de la primera internacional antiautoritaria que se organizó en 1872, en respuesta a la internacional de Marx. Desde entonces, el mundo ha cambiado bastante, por lo menos en algunos aspecto; las corrientes libertarias han sabido evolucionar con el tiempo y este encuentro lo demostrará. Algo seguro es que el tiempo no ha disminuido la opresión de los poderosos sobre los mas débiles. Este encuentro expondrá numerosos medios de resistencia de varias formas. […]“

„Du 08 au 12 août 2012 se tiendra à St-Imier ( Jura Bernois, CH) une rencontre internationale entre libertaires de tout poils, ainsi que toutes personnes désirant faire connaissance ou connaitre d‘avantage les différentes mouvances anarchistes.

Ce « Mondial de l‘Anarchisme » sera en fait une commémoration de la première internationale anti-autoritaire qui fût organisée en 1872 en réponse à l‘internationale de Marx. Depuis le monde a passablement changé, du moins sous certains angles, les courants libertaires ont su évoluer avec le temps et cette rencontre en sera représentative. Une chose est sûre, le temps n‘a en rien diminué l‘oppression des puissants vis-à-vis des plus faibles. Cette rencontre exposera de multiples moyens de résistance sous des formes variées et diverses.

Radiomacher droht die Abschiebung
original-link

Saied Ahmadi (24), einer der Gestalter der Sendung Freundschaftsbaum, ist von der Abschiebung bedroht. FreundInnen von Saeid haben nun eine Online-Petition gestartet.

Wenn Saied nach Afghanistan abgeschoben wird, erwarten ihn dort die Taliban. Saied hatte auf Seiten der Armee gegen den fundamentalistischen Terror gekämpft, die eigene Familie in seinem Heimatdorf konnte er nicht schützen. Das Elternhaus wurde mit Raketen beschossen, ein Bruder ermordet, Saied und sein Vater erhielten Drohbriefe. Als der Druck der Taliban zu groß wurde, desertierte Saied und floh. Seine Familie musste ebenfalls die Heimat verlassen und befindet sich inzwischen in Pakistan, während sich Saied bis Österreich durchschlug, wo er um politisches Asyl ansuchte. […]“

[russia pussy riot pre-trial detention extended to jan 2013 22072012]

„Judges Victor Danilkin + Marina Syrova of Khamovnichesky District Court extends pre-trial detention to Jan. 2013″
original-link

„Khamovnichesky court ruled that the detention of the members of the Pussy Riot punk rock group should be extended for another six months, satisfying a prosecution request. The ruling came on the first day of the womens‘ trial on hooliganism charges for barging into a landmark Moscow church in February. The trio have been held in pre-trial detention since March, and their harsh treatment has become a new rallying cause for the anti-Putin opposition. […]

In February the three women – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Yekaterina Samutsevich and Maria Alekhina – shocked worshippers by climbing into an area reserved for priests in the Church of Christ the Saviour, the country’s top Orthodox cathedral, and singing the song against Putin.

Several others also took part in the action but they were not arrested. […]

„The regime loves a bit of theatre. The two most prominent trials of the last years have taken place in the same court, in neighbouring rooms,“ the anti-Putin Voina (War) art collective, to which Tolokonnikova is linked, wrote on Twitter.

More than 100 of Russia’s best known actors, directors and musicians last month called for the release of the three women, saying their actions could not be prosecuted as Russia is a secular country.

Wearing trademark balaclavas, Pussy Riot caused a stir early in the year amid an upsurge of public disapproval of Putin by holding impromptu anti-Kremlin concerts at symbolic venues including Red Square. […]“

„Barrilonia squat in Barcelona is evicted“
original-link

„At 7am this morning, units of riot cops carried out the eviction of the CSO Barrilonia at Rambla del Raval in Barcelona. The town hall has alleged “building deficiences” in order to evict the squat, as the legal process had not reached the trial stage yet […]“

http://bit.ly/OVj6Su

„[…] It was a community center. It used to host concerts, political meetings and community parties. […]
The council’s reasons for shutting the squat down are ‘structural concerns’ with the building. They used similar excuses to shut down other squats in Barcelona in the past, including la Makabra, Miles de Viviendas and Ruina Amalia. In all these cases, the squats served as community centres which hosted art classes and exhibitions, spaces for political debate and spaces to celebrate cultures. […]“

[peru protests against goldmining state repression 15 activists gets killed english pics/videos/links 120712]

[peru protests against goldmining state repression 15 activists gets killed english pics/videos/links 120712]

“Peru’s great transformation – Ollanta Humala’s (note: president-in-office) crackdown on anti-mining protesters has alienated many of those who voted for him.“
original-link

He promised to make The Great Transformation. This „radical change“ would be a „democratic alternative“ to neoliberalism, which he blamed for „social inequality, deprivation of natural.

But once in power, Humala cast off his jeans and blue work shirt, donned a suit and adopted the same neoliberal policies he criticised during his campaign.
Since Humala took office, ten people have died in social conflicts in Peru, more than 120 civilians have been wounded, and states of emergency have been declared in two regions.

More than 120 farming leaders and human rights defenders are reportedly under criminal investigation for their alleged involvement in protests against foreign mining companies, including one provincial and one state governor, a priest, and two Catholic Church workers. […]
At stake is the $4.8bn Minas Conga project, owned by Newmont Mining of Colorado. It would be the biggest mining investment in Peru’s history, paying $2bn in taxes over the mine’s lifetime. But the project would destroy four sacred lakes, the source of water for an entire farming region.
Humala has taken a hard-line on Conga, insisting it is a project of „national interest“ and must go forward. The government says it needs mining revenues to fund development programmes, and has secured a $1.1bn increase in taxes from the industry.

Peruvian groups such as Red Muqui and CONACAMI, a nation-wide coalition of mining communities, say they are not against mining. […] They‘re also demanding a moratorium on mining in watersheds and the use of cyanide in gold mining operations. […]

During the strike in November (note: November 2011 “Peru: Farmers‘ Strike in Andahuaylas“, globalvoicesonline.org, http://bit.ly/vzKLxy ) […] At least 28 people were injured during brutal police repression, including a young farmer who was reportedly paralysed by a rubber bullet fired by police. […]
Humala himself was an army captain during Fujimori’s rule, and had been accused of crimes such as torture and forced disappearances when he was in charge of the Madre Mia military base. The case against Humala was shelved, but human rights groups in Peru are not satisfied and want to see the former captain on trial. […]

In late May, Humala declared his second state of emergency, this time in the southern Andean province of Espinar.
On May 21, farming leaders declared a strike to pressure the Tintaya copper mine to negotiate a new social contract. Leaders want improved environmental standards, independent monitoring and increased funds for development projects.
Thousands of unarmed civilians blocked access routes to the mine, owned by Xstrata of Switzerland. In response, the government sent in hundreds of special police commandos trained in counter-insurgency and anti-terrorism.

These heavily armed officers were charged with „subduing“ peasant farmers, teachers, lawyers and other urban professionals.
Two civilians were killed (one of them, a school teacher, leaves behind a pregnant widow), two remain hospitalised in a coma, and more than 100 people were wounded. Police allegedly detained 22 people without arrest warrants inside the mine’s compound, including two employees of the human rights office operated by the local Catholic bishop. (note: May 2012, “Clashes over Xstrata mine in Peru leave two dead“, http://bit.ly/M2XfK6 ) […]
Oscar Mollohuanca, Espinar’s provincial governor, […] met with local leaders to plan the negotiations, about 50 police commandos reportedly burst into his office in a scene reminiscent of the reality show Cops.

The governor was arrested and imprisoned in Ica, a coastal town 800 kilometres from Espinar. He was sentenced to five months in jail […] Lawyers from Peruvian human rights groups appealed his imprisonment on the grounds that he had not been given a trial and was a prisoner of conscience.
Amnesty International launched a campaign demanding Mollohuanca’s release, and citizens groups across Peru held vigils and protests. On June 13, two weeks after his arrest, Mollohuanca was freed on conditional release. The criminal investigation against the governor continues, however.
But just as the Espinar conflict was beginning to cool, a new strike began in the state of Cajamarca on May 31 to protest against the Conga mining project.
(note: 5th of june, “Peru: March for Peace and the Strike in Cajamarca“, globalvoicesonline.org, http://bit.ly/MxY7qc ) […].

President Humala vowed to „restore order“. Police repression in Cajamarca over the past two weeks has resulted in more than 60 wounded civilians. Since the conflict began last year, at least 100 protesters have been charged with crimes under tough new legislation. Once-minor offences such as blocking a road have been turned into criminal acts punishable with 20-year prison sentences.

(note: a facebook-user writes “NewmontMiningCorporation financed police defending their interests. The press hides what happens in Cajamarca, and Bambamarca Celendín: 5 people had been killed.“ And linked that video: http://youtu.be/LE6Py7ZUbto )

(note: 4th of july, „Police beat up Peru’s green priest“, theinternationalsblog, http://bit.ly/PjP9gu )

Human rights groups say Humala is criminalising social protests […]

Father Marco Arana, one of the protest leaders, says the government finds it easier to look for scapegoats than „to admit it has a widespread social problem“. According to Peru’s government ombudsman’s office, there are 171 „active social conflicts“ across the nation, most centred on mining, petroleum and hydroelectric projects. […]”
