die neue Monatsübersicht von Spartacus auf LibCom: Workers‘ struggles in East Asia (November 2012):
Summary and links to news stories of workers‘ struggles around East Asia during November 2012 and related resources. The most important stories appear on my Twitter feed as soon as I find them: http://twitter.com/spartacusnews.
This month there has been news from Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, North Korea, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Among the significant events is Singapore’s first strike in 25 years, carried out by Chinese bus drivers – it’s probably too early to suggest this is a sign of China exporting workers militancy, but it’s nice to be hopeful now and then!

This month there has been news from Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. I haven’t had time to check the JTTP.cn or Jasmine Revolution website this month, but they’re worth a browse for the photos even if you can’t read Chinese or be bothered to use Google Translate. Reports I’ve come across for countries outside of the region can be found here.

gefunden auf ESSF, dort auch Japanese Citizens’ Appeal: Stop the Vicious Cycle of Territorial Disputes:
A peace activists’ statement to stop chauvinist-nationalist offensive in Japan
Japanese civic movements held a press conference and released a statement on territorial conflicts between Japan, China, and Korea on Friday, September 28 .
This statement was initiated by a small number of activists of peace movement, intelligentsia, media people, and lawyers. In times of political and social-economic crisis, very dangerous anti China, anti-Korea chauvinist sentiments are growing in Japan, favored by the problem of territorial conflicts over several islands.
All the institutional political parties of Japan, including Japanese Communist Party, support the government’s claims on issues of Japanese sovereignty over these islands. Numbers of people who signed the statement are about 1500, mainly independent peace activists
The aim of this statement is to stop chauvinist-nationalist offensive against China and Korea and to find a solution through joint effort of people’s movements throughout East Asia region. Political contents of the statement are modest, but it deserves to be supported and broaden to fight back nationalist-chauvinist offensive.

LibCom, eine libertär-kommunistische Nachrichten- und Diskussionsseite aus Britannien hat eigentlich immer Interessantes zu bieten, so auch heute:
1.) Denial networks: on crisis and continuity in the 9/11 truth movement, ein Artikel über diejenigen Vollpfosten, welche davon ausgehen, das die Anschläge am 11. September 2001 vom Mossad oder den USA begangen wurden:
„What we will find is that quite remarkably, the “truth” movement’s embrace of its own contradictions is the only thing that can keep it in motion given that its very modus operandi provokes a deep internal crisis. This crisis is not for lack of interest. Truthers are correct in claiming an embrace of 9/11 conspiracy theory on a significant scale, for instance a September 2008 WorldPublicOpinion poll across several countries found that “on average, 46 percent of those surveyed said al Qaeda was responsible (for the September 11th attacks), 15 percent said the U.S. government, 7 percent said Israel and 7 percent said some other perpetrator. One in four people said they did not know who was behind the attacks.” These numbers are certainly a testament to the vacuum of knowledge that the lying American government has made inevitable in the past seven years. Still, the so-called “truth movement” itself is suffering from a dearth of attention despite the wide-scale denial that the 19 hijackers affiliated with Al Qaeda were responsible for the attack. Recent revisionist history projects such as “the Shell Game”, a novel expounding 9/11 conspiracy theory, and Loose Change: Final Cut, whose creators promised a major theatrical release, have failed quite notoriously to penetrate the mainstream in the ways they had promised. Truther conferences and meet-ups are sparsely attended, flagship web pages see their traffic falling precipitously, and this summer when truth movement superstar Alex Jones took his bullhorn down to a Barack Obama rally at the DNC, he was roundly mocked and physically confronted by the audience before having his bullhorn cord cut.
The contradiction, that the conspirational explanations for 9/11 enjoy a certain popularity on the level of popular consciousness, but that the core propagandists who have helped shift responsibility from the Islamists are more and more ignored is intrinsic to “truth creation”, the productive core of the truth movement, which constructs its interpretation of reality and its relation to others. Despite some vain posturing, this paranoid reality tends to fulfill its own prophecy: that the state of affairs could never be changed.“
2.) Conditions of the working classes in China von Richard Weill:
„The worsening conditions of the working classes are pushing them rapidly in a more radical and militant direction. Within the ranks not only of the workers and peasants, but among many intellectuals and at least some of the broader new middle class as well, there is a deep and growing understanding that global capitalism has no answer to their situations, and that the revolutionary socialism that they built under Mao offers at least the outline of another way forward today. In the factories and on the farms, workers and peasants in China not only are resisting the new forms of capitalist exploitation, but have memories of another world that they already know is possible. From their lives during the socialist era before the reforms, they are aware that viable alternatives exist to the uncontrolled rampage of global capitalism.
Despite this legacy, any simplistic return to the past is neither possible nor desirable. Too much has been changed, and too many genies have been let out of the bottle to simply put them back again. The failures and mistakes of the past, as well as the successes and victories, will have to be reexamined, and new ways will have to be found to overcome the limitations of the first era of socialism, in China, as elsewhere. No easy prediction is possible as to what direction the struggle will take in the coming period. But as they move forward, the Chinese working classes may also look backward as they find their own path again to a new socialist society, one that combines their historical and current struggles with the global movements of today, and that brings about a revolutionary transformation once more.“
3. Ein Bericht über einen Streik von TextilarbeiterInnen in einer taiwanesischen Fabrik in Vietnam:
„The workers, mostly women, said managers from mainland China had beaten and humiliated employees at the Sun Jade company in Thanh Hoa province. The Thanh Nien daily and other newspapers said the workers had also reported being denied sick leave and days off for deaths in the family, and were often docked an entire month’s pay if they failed to show up.“
