Through libertarian communism we can reach a point of balance between the capacities to produce, the needs of populations, and the limits of the biosphere. We cannot build our future in opposition to the rest of life. The ideology of domination must be broken everywhere, so that humanity can find a safe future on its planet.
Dr. Varoufakis (Dr. V. from now on) is another self-proclaimed Marxist among the ranks of SYRIZA –although an erratic one according to his confession, in the sense that he has replaced Marx’ s social abstract labour theory of value with a humanist theory of the value of labour. His ambition is to enlist Bloomberg and New York Times journalists, Tory MPs, humanist financiers, SYRIZA activists in Greece and subversive elements in Zagreb to the cause of “saving capitalism from itself”, i.e. to the cause of harnessing neoliberal “animal spirits”.

Wearing the flag of Ocalan
On the process of change in Northern Syria often called the Rojava revolution, the PYD as proponent of the process, and its alliance with Western imperialist powers.
In Rojava, in the North of Syria, Kurdish fighters are struggling against IS, Islamic State. That struggle deserves out interest, because it is not just a fight between armeed groups fighting for territory.

Twenty-five years ago, on March 31, 1990, a massive demonstration against Margaret Thatcher's poll tax turned into a huge riot that spread across central London—shop windows were smashed, cars were set ablaze and people were hurt.
Peru, Arequipa: very heavy policing on 8th day of indefinite strike against Tia Maria mining project “Strikers say policemen threw and fired tear gas and shot from helicopters…. hundreds of policemen attacked and entered their homes by force to arrest people …”…they entered the houses with arrogance, kicking down doors to arrest people just because we are against polluting mining… With more than three thousand police they besieged the whole of Cocachacra and kidnapped all the people of Tambo Valley. They have also police contingents in Mollendo to stop the population having access or making its way to us.
Revolt is brewing across Québec and is spreading day by day. Already 66 student associations have voted a renewable strike. There are more and more night demos. Cégep du Vieux-Montréal and Université Laval are taking hold of their campuses and transforming them into political spaces. UQÀM was blockaded today [Monday, March 31, 2015]. Whereas Printemps 2012 took several weeks to really begin, Printemps 2015 has taken off in the space of a few days. The movement is re-starting right where 2012 was interrupted. The strike is underway.
The final tally of what the police, hilariously, have dubbed "Operation Piñata" is, to the best of our knowledge, 28 comrades arrested and 17 buildings raided.
Of the raids, 6 targeted social centers and the others targeted houses.
14 people were arrested and charged with resistance for opposing the raids in a social center in Madrid, but as of this evening all of them have been released.
