I'd like to be able to post general articles about things like economics and book reviews. See http://francis.posthaven.com/how-can-the-radical-anti-austerity-parties-... for example - I was going to edit it a little and post it again, here, because I'd like to see what people think.

fjfish - This text seems like the usual lefty/labour argument not all completely wrong if it's just a matter of adjustments to the capitalist public finances to get some limited improvements at the margins but misses the bigger picture - hardly suitable on this libertarian COMMUNIST website!

just want to post a poem.

A lost and Lonely Anarchist
By Constantine/Nobodytrue

I was born into this country.
but never have I been
given a choice, whether to accept
the ‘rules’ of society.

If I get a credit card.
as you yourself have seen
you have to sign an agreement
and be over eighteen.

Only then can you be held
at all accountable
for the rules and terms implied
by having the thing at all.

But tell me where is the dotted line,
with my signature upon?
which says I accept they many laws
this society rests upon.

Where are the terms and conditions
which I should have to read,
for your laws to be legal
when applied to me?

The truth is I'm a prisoner
a slave if you will
forced to accept the domination
of someone else's will

‘Why don’t you leave the country?’
Why should I have to?
I was born; right here
just the same as you

But without a passport,
I can't even do that
somewhere down the line someone
will only send me back.

Every scrap of land on earth,
even the air in the skies
is claimed by some ‘authority’
which I DO NOT recognize.

So please don’t tell me that I'm free
it’s a word that I despise
used to hide the slavery
the corruption and the lies.

Would like to upload a translation I've done (I'm bilingual) from the German original of anarcho-syndicalist Rudolf Rocker's 'Absolutist Ideas in Socialism' ('Absolutistische Gedankengaenge im Sozialismus', 1950) to the Library archives. It deals with how authoritarian socialist ideas from the Jacobins, Lassalle and Marx onwards paved the way to 20th century totalitarianism. I haven't been able to find another English translation of this text on the internet as yet, so it might be a first. Maybe a new translation can avoid those dreadful copyright hassles apparently raging around Rocker's works at the moment?

hi, can I start a blog on Libcom. My blog will largely cover subjects such as UK politics and anarchist politics, as well as doing a feature devoted to debunking rubbish arguments made by liberals and right-wingers.

thanks.

hmm when the first couple of lines has something inaccurate about our website on it that doesn't really make us want to host it particularly

is this the section that bothers you?

Quote:
Things are hardly any different on the anarchist side of the aisle. For instance, log onto the LibCom.org forums, which are maintained by London-based libertarian communists, and ask, as I have, the otherwise nice folks what they think of animalists. And you'll see the British didn't get their reputation for beef-eating for nothing.

Hard to say how it's inaccurate when it's a subjective statement, but of course posting or not posting is completely your call.

Well saying we're London-based isn't subjective, and it's inaccurate. Four of us are in London, the rest are in Edinburgh, Brighton, Bristol and Minneapolis. I'm not sure about any admins commenting in threads on animal rights (I don't normally bother) but the ones I have seen seem to mostly have American contributors in any case

Hello,

I would like to post an article what i wrote about a Arubian man beaten to death by Hague police in the Netherlands. Her it is:

Mitch Henriquez's death was a murder

After the Night at the Park Festival in Zuiderpark in The Hague, the Netherlands, 42 year old Mitch Henriquez was killed as a result of intense police violence. The public prosecutor said in its first statement that Mitch Henriquez started to feel unwell in a police van on the way to the police station. However, video recordings and statements of bystanders tell a completely different story.

The public prosecutor claimed in its first statement: 'The man was placed under arrest after claiming that he had a weapon. The man resisted arrest and the police subsequently used force in order to bring him to the police station. On the way to the police station he began to feel sick. The officers performed CPR and the man was brought by ambulance to the hospital in very critical condition.' This statement was embraced by the Dutch media without question.

However, on the Arubian website MasNoticia.com, family members gave a completely different interpretation of what happened. His cousin said: “Henriquez was joking around with a group of friends when a group of officers confronted them. Then they arrested him. His entire face was beaten black and blue.” Eyewitnesses also stated on social media: “I was standing no more than 4 meters away from him but I didn't hear the man say anything about having a gun. He walked away and 4 officers jumped on him.” And: “An officer kept beating him on his head and legs.” Video recordings are also in conflict with the police and public prosecutor's statements. In one video, one can see that 4 officers are sitting on top of him and are trying to gag him while holding him in a headlock, a stranglehold which the police are forbidden from using. In a second video one can see that he is laying lifeless on the ground. Officers try to sit him up but the man is no longer responsive. His head falls forward because he is already unconscious or in a coma. Instead of performing CPR or calling an ambulance, the police throw the man into the van which then rides away. But why?

Cover-up mechanism
The fact that the police and prosecution have been so quick to go to the press with statements regarding police brutality is nothing new. This creates the illusion that the police have done nothing wrong. It is the mechanism that is put to work every time the police do something wrong. For years, The Hague police force has been enveloped in scandals with regard to racist police brutality. In many cases where it was obvious that the police used excessive force, these claims were dismissed with, “we are just doing our job”, “we do not agree with the findings”, and “the police are under a lot of pressure”. Again and again, the officers are covered by police leadership and the mayor. When 17 year old Rishi Chandrikasing was shot to death on November 24, 2012 at Holland Spoor Station, this cover-up mechanism was also put to work. Officers claim to have thought that Rishi had a weapon, which apparently was just his mobile phone. The police opened fire on him while he was running away. A claim was also made that 4 armed officers were afraid of a 17 year old boy. Now that the public prosecutor has rescinded its first statement as a result of much criticism, it is clear that they repeatedly try to blur the facts with lies and that nothing changes.

Even though it was clear during the court case that the officer shouldn't have opened fire, he was acquitted and protected by police leadership. But the police didn't just stop there. While Rishi's family and friends were still in mourning, the police began with a character assassination. Rishi apparently had traces of cannabis and alcohol in his blood and was under the supervision of the department of children and family services. These baseless accusations are not a relevant standard to justify taking someone's life, but were used to show Rishi in a bad light as “someone who had it coming.” The same mechanism is being put to work yet again. There was talk of a weapon, next they will say that he had been drinking (and if that is the case, he would not have been the only one at the festival) and had resisted arrest. And it won't surprise me when we in a few weeks will hear a story from an officer who was scared to death.

We can now conclude that excessive force was used to arrest a man who was simply walking away, and that the public prosecutor is lying to the media and to the people. It is clear that Mitch was already unconscious and that the police refused medical care while they drove around with him, only later calling an ambulance. It cannot be said that he simply began to feel sick in the police van, this was murder, or at very least a wrongful death.

I can't breathe
The death of Mitch Henriquez makes one think about a combination of two similar cases in America. Eric Garner died after he was kept in a chokehold by an officer who was arresting him. Garner shouted “I can't breathe” 11 times before losing consciousness and dying. Freddie Gray was seriously injured during his arrest. He broke three ribs and injured his spine and neck. Gray was thrown into a police van. He received no medical care and died a week later in his cell. As a result of the deaths of these two African American men, protests broke out across America. If we want to stop police brutality, the lies from the public prosecutor and the cover-up mechanism, then we must take to the streets to protest. The death of Mitch Henriquez was murder, the latest on the police death list. It cannot be ignored.

I would like to be able to submit a 40ish page pamphlet that I wrote. It's about organizing. How would I go about that?
