    The Anarchist movement in São Paulo and the World Cup

    NYC Anarchist Book Fair 2014:

    Members Biblioteca Terra Livre and the Comite Popular da Copa via live stream with in-person translation from Adriana Varella

    The talk is about the recent anarchist movements in São Paulo (Brazil) and the recent works about the 2014 Fifa World Cup. The idea is to present the history of the last 10 years of the anarchist groups in São Paulo and talk a little bit of the Comite Popular da Copa (Popular Committee of the World Cup and Olympics) an autonomous organization that is developing some activities that denunce the harm of the World Cup. An exciting discussion with our comrades in South America!

    I feel like developing countries are the most likely for anarchism to take root strongly in. Nations like the USA are just too swamped in luxury and safety net programs. Notice how few really serious riots we've had since television and the like became really widespread, and the Great Society programs were enacted. People don't riot if their bellies are full and have something to do to get their mind off things. By the time, should it come, that the mistakes and misdeeds of America, people and government, finally catch up to us, there will be a camera in every apartment, a cop for every four people, and a cell for every malcontent.
    I have hope for Brazil, though. It's a rising power, and similar enough to the other future world power, India, that we could see a change for the better on the world scale. A double revolution, in the two countries that could actually stand up to scum like Putin and the PRC. Look how many countries had capitalism forced down their throats because of the English. Or "democracy" because of America. This will be an interesting time to be alive.

    NOTE: Ive been watching a lot of these vice videos and posting quite a few here. They have been producing "OK" Riot Porn or just covering protests/riots throughout the world without really addressing why these protests/riots were talking place, as in having a real critique of the system all these people are living under. In this here piece on brazil and the world cup they are starting or just dipping there toe into the underline reasons these protests/riots are taking place and have been talking place around the world: CAPITALISM!

    I quote form the piece below: "Thanks to the world cup they now have a common enemy, FIFA the world governing body of football and the unbridle capitalism that it represents."…

    Contra A Copa: The Other Side of Brazil's World Cup

    Although it might have seemed like a good idea to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil — one of the most soccer-obsessed countries in the world — massive social unrest has taken the country by storm in the lead-up to the tournament.

    The Brazilian government is spending an estimated $14 billion on this year's tournament, making it the most expensive World Cup to date. This has provoked outrage among Brazilians, many of whom view the government as corrupt, and are now seeing vast amounts of money being spent on soccer stadiums and police, while the country's endemic poverty and social issues are ignored.

    This growing unrest led to violent anti-government protests breaking out in June of 2013, which have continued with increasing momentum in the lead-up to the World Cup. The Brazilian government has responded to these demonstrations by deploying massive numbers of police and military throughout the country in an attempt to suppress the masses. Despite this crackdown, major demonstrations continue to take place in cities across the country as international teams begin to arrive for the games.

    VICE News traveled to Brazil to see how the country is preparing for one of the world's biggest international events, while simultaneously struggling to control a mounting civil uprising.

    Bakunin – Rio de Janeiro police register him as suspect to track and surveil

    [​IMG]

    Note from El Libertario: Of everything that has been said and written about the Russian anarchist this year which marks two hundred years since his birth, we are quite certain that for him the most precious would be the involuntary homage paid by a surprising source: none other than the cops of Río de Janeiro, who included him recently in the dossier of subversive persons who must have a close eye kept on them.

    A report on this particular matter–which we have translated from the Portuguese–appears in the following paragraphs. We suppose someone–not ourselves–will have to thank the repressive forces for such a valuable record on the surveillance of Mikhail Bakunin.

    An Article published on Monday 7/28/14 in the Folha daily of S. Paulo includes a revelation curious to say the least: the legal summary of over 2,000 pages–elaborated by the Civil Police of Río de Janeiro in order to accuse 23 persons as responsible for the organization of violent actions in the recent street demonstrations–mentions the philosopher Mikhail Bakunin as a suspect. Dead since 1876, the Russian is considered one of the fathers of anarchism.

    According to the document, Bakunin was cited by a demonstrator in a message intercepted by the police. From there he went on to be classified as a “possible suspect.” Professor Camila Jourdan, 34 years old, one of the persons under investigation, mentioned this episode in order to demonstrate the fragility of the accusation. “From what little I’ve read, I can say that this legal summary is a work of fantasy literature of the lowest quality,” she said.

    This is not the first time that dead and very well-known intellectuals have been the target of “attention” by the Brazilian authorities. During the military dictatorship, Karl Marx was on one of the black lists of the Department of Public and Social Order (DOPS), one of the primary apparatuses of repression of political and social movements, which identified him as a “subversive.”

    Jourdan spent 13 days imprisoned in the penitentiary complex of Bangú in western Río. Known for her academic excellence in the State University of Río de Janeiro (UERJ), where she coordinates the postgraduate program in philosophy, she says she is a victim of the devices of the investigative police. “There is a need to fabricate supposed leaders for these demonstrations. And who fits well the role of intellectual mentor? The university professor. It fits like a glove, you see?” she said.

    To refute the “role of leadership” that the police assigns her, the professor draws from the theories of the French philosopher Michel Foucault: “Foucault says that intellectuals have discovered that the masses do not need them as interlocutors. I have no authority to speak about the oppression of any other person. The movement does not need me to fill that role.”
