AGAINST THE DICTATORSHIP OF TECHNOLOGY
The present society is without doubt best described as a technocratic system where global science operates unrestrained and the products they put on the market dominate and govern life.
The multinational companies maintain their dominion over the planet via the States and their international institutions (UN, EU, IMF, ECB).
The hyper-technological society is the perfect accompaniment to meet two primary requirements of Power: profit and social control.

From Network23 - by Paul Cudenec
One of the most annoying terms in the political dictionary is “anarcho-capitalism”.
It’s annoying because it describes something that does not exist, cannot exist. I know there are people out there who claim to be “anarcho-capitalists” but this no more means that anarcho-capitalism exists than my claiming to be a unicorn would prove that unicorns actually do exist.

In the days and weeks leading up to this year’s Earth First! rondy my thoughts were often preoccupied with the state of this world that is lurching from crisis to crisis and slipping deeper into chaos. In a time when our victories seem increasingly few and strictly symbolic, and as the machinery of industrial capitalism continues its assault on the earth and those who depend on it for survival, I was very much hoping for the rondy to be a place of reflection, strategizing, commiseration with like minds, and yes, escape from the mental stress of the city.

Anarchist collective “Rouviconas” intervene at a private hospital in Athens, Greece (Metropolitan Hospital) against two Board of Directors members’ choice to terrorize the hospital’s employees with unemployment, if they were not taking part in a demonstration in favor of YES to austerity measures in the greek referendum, that took place on 5 July 2015. Then, to terrorize the hospital’s stuff even further they fired one of the accountants of the hospital because she supported the NO vote in the same referendum.
