    A macabre illustration of the current state of capitalism. Forced labour of Chinese prisoners making greetings cards for the great capitalist orgy that is xmas being sold across the UK by a mega-retail corporation. See, the US is much smarter than the UK. In the US they have their own forced prison labour. They don't have to rely on Chinese slave labour because they have the best slave labourers in the world.

    Capitalism in its current form is fucking grotesque.

    The Congresses of the International Workers' Association. The first 10 were the Congresses of the First International. In 1922, the International was again founded and is now known as the IWA. The upcoming Congress is the XXVII regular Congress. There have also been a few Extraordinary Congresses in the history of the IWA. The first Congress outside of Europe took place in 2009 in Brazil. The XXVII Congress is the second to take place outside Europe and we hope there will be many more! The regions that the IWA operates in will be expanding and the centers shifting. We think the Congress in Australia will mark an important turning point in anarcho-syndicalism!

    The IWA Congress in Melbourne will decide upon the applications of BASF (Bangladesh), MEM/LSF (India), OLS (Sweden) and PPAS (Indonesia) to be sections of the IWA.

    Workers of the world, come together, fight back!

    We carry a new world right here in our hearts!

    Update from the International.

    BASF (Bangladesh Anarcho Syndicalist Federation) and PPAS (Persaudaraan Pekerja Anarko Sindikalis - Indonesia), are now sections of the IWA-AIT!

    MEM/LSF accepted as the Indian (Friends) section of the IWA.

    Later discussion will occur about the late application of ULET Colombia, to have Section status. Post will be amended then!

    My current favourite thinker/influencer: Yanis Varoufakis.

    He touches on many of the issues regarding the current state of capitalism, and the hows and whys.

    2 hours long and I'm halfway thru.

    "The collapse of capitalism can give way to something far worse, and it usually does".

    He is no naive ideologue.
