leninology: What next after #j30?

About three quarters of a million workers took strike action on 30th June. This wasn't as big as some strikes in recent years, and certainly nothing close to the 'winter of discontent' evoked by the right-wing press. But I think it was far more important than the previous ones of the last decade, because it was a) far more political, b) not simply a sectional strike over conditions, and c) rooted …

#J30 strike: stop search and arrest pics

Search1_rhall-thumb

Here's just a few of the snaps from today's london stop and searches and arrests. For sure the cops were really going for people with aggressive interventions and some rowdy push and shove when nothing at all had even happened, nothing. Best bit though was the solidarity shown by people at Charing Cross when they went for the young lads in the main march. Sure someone will have it on video - great…

Mass strikes by public sector workers on June 30th

J30website-300x300_copy-thumb

The nation wide strike action on June 30th by over 750,000 public sector workers is the biggest threat yet to this government’s plan to make public sector workers pay for the economic crisis. While the banking sector has returned to enjoying the fruits of our labour, we are told that there is no alternative but to cut the services we depend on. For updates on where actons are happening see th…

Shift: Blue Labour “faith, family & dog-whistle politics"

We don't usually cover party-political issues in Shift Magazine, but in the context of growing working class struggle under the Tory austerity drive we are interested in the latest move by the Labour Party to reconnect with working class and community concerns. Only that this move comes under the heading ‘Blue Labour'. Could you briefly tell us what Blue Labour is, where the idea has come from and…

Jousting with your Inner Thatcher: Part 2 - ‘You shouldn't need the government to do it for you'

In the style of Adam Curtis: "This is a series of posts about how our politicians became so successful at promoting a US-style form of individualism that we all - even those who claim to hate her - came to have a little Margaret Thatcher hiding inside of us, guiding our every move."

That goes for t…

European Revolution vs European Subjugation

5764664961_f9d0f67dd2_b-thumb

The occupation of city squares across Spain has shown the oppressed in Europe there is a way forward in our struggle for representation of our views. Fear dissappears when the need becomes greatest, and that is when a nation of traditionally fearful people like the Spanish, still recovering from a violent dictatorship 35 years ago, rise up together and take concerted action.

in bed with the resistance: So you think you're a radical?

I've always quite liked those essays and pamphlets that have from time to time been put out to confront politically active people with their own behaviour patterns. They tend to have a provocative edge and slightly supercilious note that I will attempt to emulate in this post. Because this one is for people who think of themselves as radicals. This is a post about how radicalism might not be radic…

Minor Compositions: A users' guide to (demanding) the impossible

This guide is not a road map or instruction manual. It's a match struck in the dark, a homemade multi-tool to help you carve out your own path through the ruins of the present, warmed by the stories and strategies of those who took Bertolt Brecht's words to heart: "Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it."



It was written in a whirlwind of three days in December 2…

Infantile Disorder: The Black Bloc and 'Propaganda by Deed'

The intra-anarchist debate over the black bloc in the wake of the March 26th London demonstrations is the latest stage in a debate that has characterised anarchism - and indeed the radical left in general - since the mid 1800s. One hundred and fifty years on, the controvery is still raging. Where this disagreement has been comradely, it has shown a great strength of anarchism - the belief that a w…
