    La industria de armas y seguridad de Israel forma parte intrínseca de su régimen de apartheid y exporta la política y la metodología de la ocupación a todo el mundo.

    13 July 2021
    Article

    Durante las revueltas populares en el norte de África y en el oeste de Asia de hace una década (2010-2011), en el marco de la llamada “primavera árabe”, el pensamiento y la praxis de Frantz Fanon demostraron ser más relevantes que nunca. No sólo relevantes, sino perspicaces, ya que nos permiten entender mejor la violencia en el mundo maniqueo en el que vivimos y la racionalidad de la resistencia popular.

  5. ¿Por qué se requiere un Tratado Vinculante sobre empresas transnacionales y derechos humanos?

    Mónica Vargas
    22 June 2021
    Article

    En 1972 el Presidente chileno Salvador Allende denunciaba ante las Naciones Unidas la falta de regulación y de control de las empresas transnacionales. En la actualidad, tras múltiples esfuerzos en este ámbito, se avanza hacia un Tratado Vinculante sobre empresas transnacionales y derechos humanos en el Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU. En este artículo destacamos cómo este proceso puede constituir una piedra angular frente a la gobernanza corporativa global.

  6. Immunity is liberty

    16 June 2021
    Article

    The current vaccine crisis in the midst of a pandemic could be a tipping point for the current order of global governance. The global policy response and vaccine rollout have proven too inept to counter the catastrophic moral failure of affluent countries' vaccine hoarding. The WHO Director General’s performative pleas for vaccine equity have done little to move an intransigent system of global governance to address an emergency of this scale. What do these overlapping and related failures mean at national and international levels? 

  7. Generals to the dustbin, Algeria will be independent

    Hamza Hamouchene
    16 June 2021
    Article

    Six decades after the death of the revolutionary thinker Frantz Fanon and the publication of his masterpiece The Wretched of the Earth, Algeria is witnessing another revolution, this time against the national bourgeoisie that Fanon railed against in his passionate and ferocious chapter ‘The Pitfalls of National Consciousness’. What would he say about the new Algerian revolution? How might he act in the face of current events? What can we as young Algerians learn from his reflections and experiences?

  8. Can we avoid more bloodshed? A reflection on the ethnic crisis in Myanmar

    15 June 2021
    Article

    After decades of conflict, it is often said that that political struggle in Myanmar has three groupings: military, pro-democracy and ethnic. But, as Cheery Zahau argues in this commentary, the ethnic nationality cause is frequently marginalised and misunderstood. Paradigm shifts in political behaviour and perspectives are required on all sides if the failures of the past are not to be repeated.

  9. The Arakan Army, Myanmar military coup and politics of Arakan

    Article

    In the aftermath of the November general election the intense fighting between the national armed forces (Tatmadaw) and the Arakan Army came to an unexpected halt. Since the February coup of the State Administration Council, the situation has remained delicately poised. Political sentiment is very high. But Rakhine nationalism is presently on a different cycle to political movements in other parts of the country. In this commentary Kyaw Lynn outlines why the coming months will remain a time of high tension and uncertainty in Arakan politics.

    Article

    Los levantamientos populares continúan en Colombia y se enfrentan cada vez más a una brutal represión policial, resultado de una alianza de fuerzas neoliberales, de derecha y extrema derecha. ¿Quiénes son los sujetos políticos? ¿Cómo llegamos hasta esta situación? ¿Cuáles son las salidas posibles?

    08 June 2021
    Article

    As Popular Uprisings continue across Colombia, they have been met with brutal repression from an  alliance of neoliberal, right-wing and extreme-right forces. Who are the people involved? How did we get here? And what's the way out?

  12. How Seaspiracy misses the big picture

    Mads Barbesgaard, Zoe Brent, Carsten Pedersen, Daniel Boston
    23 May 2021
    Article
    Seaspiracy vividly describes the speed and scale of extraction of natural resources from the oceans, but fails to investigate the underlying economic power and interests of specific actors in maintaining or even deepening the problems. Its limited analysis leads it to a limited conclusion: change consumer behaviour, change the world. But if we want to transform our relationship to the oceans and ocean resources, we need to confront and challenge theses powers – and that means political actions that go well beyond changing consumer patterns.

    Binita Kakati
    16 May 2021
    Article

    Neo-capitalist development in the form of resource extraction in the North Eastern region of India has continuously expanded through mining, hydroelectric power plants, and militarised infrastructure, while basic necessities remain unmet. This has created a complex field for the contestation of identities, land sovereignty, and conflict.

    16 May 2021
    Article

    Chile's national police, the Carabineros, have a long and bloody track record of silencing groups demanding their labour, social and economic rights. Their continued existence and violence shows how the Carabineros serve as a key institution for maintaining social structures that perpetuate social injustices that benefit the elite.

  15. Militarism and the police

    Andrew Metheven
    16 May 2021
    Article

    Militarism is the glue that underpins violence being meted out to people around the world at the hands of the police and security forces. It will continue to sustain the violent, abusive, racist, oppressive policing that looks to uphold an oppressive and destructive status quo. It affects every one of us, so it is everyone’s concern.

    Waging counterinsurgency

    Nicholas Guarnaccia
    16 May 2021
    Article

    The constant waging of counterinsurgency by the US both domestically and on foreign soil has served as the basis of exchange among the institutions of the US and, eventually, the global coercive apparatus.

  17. Algorithmic assembly lines

    01 May 2021
    Article

    Retail companies are forcing workers to follow orders dictated by digital devices and corporate algorithms. To regain autonomy, creativity, and agency in the workplace we need to start politicising the use of digital technologies.

    26 April 2021
    Article
    Myanmar is in a dangerous and uncertain moment following the military coup on 1 February 2021. The articles in this Special Forum provide timely contextual analysis. Written before the coup, the articles delve into the politics of agrarian transformation in the context of (what was then) an ongoing (but fragile) opening up of political space.

    Article

    TNI has a long track record of working on land politics within the broader context of agrarian and environmental justice. Many of these have been produced with transnational agrarian movements and partners on the ground. Here, we highlight five key readings (and some further recommended readings!) that TNI has published over the years.

  20. M2M Solidarity

    20 April 2021
    Article

    Is there a culture of European solidarity? Yes, if you look at the local level. Many local communities in Europe have transformed their context by experimenting with new forms of democracy. The M2M Solidarity project creates peer-learning exchanges between these collectives, and seeks to contribute to a revival of European solidarity.
