America's War Against Women

Dorian Cope, 10th March 2012

America's War Against Women

The Republican Party's war against American women’s healthcare and contraceptive rights is an all-out war against women. Birth control freed females at last from the age-old tyranny of enforced, non-stop childbearing. But the Republicans have made their aim clear: to catapult women's rights back by decades – and keep women enslaved as second-class citizens.

The Arab Spring Hasn’t Sprung Rights for Women

21st February 2012

The Arab Spring signaled hope for millions across the Middle East. But with Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt having elected religious-dominated governments, women remain as marginalised as ever and – ominously – risk the loss of even more pre-revolution rights, as was the case in post-1979 Iran. 

In an illuminating article for the New York Daily News entitled “The Arab Spring's Misogynist Winter”, Deborah Scroggins writes:

“A year after they marched alongside men to topple regimes in the Arab Spring, Arab women are facing a wall of misogyny.

In Tunisia, Salafist vigilantes have been attacking unveiled women and occupying universities that do not allow the face veil. In Egypt, only eight out of 508 newly elected parliamentarians are female, and the country’s Islamists are threatening to repeal laws making it easier for women to divorce and to gain custody of their children. The head of Libya’s transitional government has promised to bring back polygamy.”

No Cuts massive demo, London, 26 March

9th February 2011

No Cuts massive demo, London, 26 March

The Trades Union Congress has called for a massive demonstration in London against the Con-Dem government's cuts, and for the alternative.

Supported by the Coalition of Resistance, it promises to be huge, and the springboard for active mass resistance to the cuts doctrine.

The student protests last year forced the first cracks in the Con-Dem strength, and the demo on 26 March could be the springboard for active mass opposition to kick in. They are not going to give up easily, and every day they stay in office we see more wilful damage to the services we depend on, and more power moving to the super-rich.

It's time to get out and be heard and turn the enormous anger in the country into real momentum for change.

And as the student marches have shown, you don't need to be a rabid threat to public safety to get kettled. Help keep the kettles at bay and keep yourself at liberty by getting Sukey on your smartphone.

Creating an Army of Slaves

Merrick, 22nd December 2010

Creating an Army of Slaves

The Conservatives roll out plans to force benefit claimants to work for what was previously their right, but it was devised by Labour, and the same thing has been happening in prisons for fifteen years. To make people work for the minimum needed to survive with no hope of improvement or ability to leave is simply slavery. As has always been the case, it's a state of affairs that suits the slave owners very well.
