COVID-19的世界:资本主义时代的传染病

Wednesday, August 19th, 2020

作者:CONTRA TODA NOCIVIDAD, March 2020 译者:晚霞

原文刊于 325 新发布的小册子 ‘Against the Fourth and Fifth Industrial Revolutions’ (ACN)

对于这个星球的自然资源的过度利用正在将人类带入一个自毁的边缘。我们生活在大多数是由连续不断的化学产品(杀虫剂、杀虫剂、内分泌干扰物等)的蔓延而导致的传染病之中,这对于我们的健康是有危害的。与此同时,我们生活在会导致大量人口过敏与患病的高程度的放射性污染所包围的大气中。这种对自然资源的开发还带来了技术工业对领土的破坏:地中海变成了下水道、东南亚变成了充满了化工物的荒地、非洲变成了一个大垃圾场,等等。Covid-19病毒的出现是工业文明的一个结果。

对于我们来说重要的是并不是这个病毒可能由于栖息地的工业化而从一个蝙蝠开始变异,或者是否这是一次美国对于中国经济的攻击。对于我们来说,最重要的事是这是一个让一切生活进程、日常物品甚至是地球上的生物都商品化的这个体制最后的结果;这是贪婪的体制企图毁灭一切活物,从而让这个世界完全人工化。我们不能认为我们基于在地球上连续不断增长的生活方式实际上是有限的,不会带来这些后果并使得其他灾难到来。

我们日常生活中存在的数百种化学物质改变了自然进程,从而导致了数百种“灾难”(流行病、气候变化等)。这些产品在中国每年造成150万人死亡,而且没有在新闻中报道,既没有引发社会担忧,也没有被限制,也没有导致恐慌状态。在西班牙,每年有1万人死于污染,但并没有恐慌——他们只是工业世界继续运转所必需的受害者的一部分,因为重要的是进程和它的贪婪不会停止。 (more…)

Germany: Against the EU-China Summit in Leipzig

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

From 13 to 15 September, the heads of government of all European countries will meet with the Chinese government in Leipzig. This will not only be about intensifying trade relations. Rather, it will be about building a new global partnership so that the EU is not ousted from the table of the great powers in the future. The deterioration in the EU’s relationship with the USA under Donald Trump has made it necessary to find another partner to coordinate the shaping of its own global interests with the EU. The topics of the summit are therefore not only economic relations, but also foreign and security policy and – unsurprisingly – digitalisation and digital cooperation, as well as climate protection and human rights. The summit is based on strategic position papers which already began in the EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation from 2013 and have since become increasingly concrete at the annual meetings. This year, not only representatives from China and the EU will meet for the first time, but also all heads of state and government.

China: Enraged people of Hubei province attack cops and riot after being prevented from leaving

Monday, March 30th, 2020

Warning – Video from the English right wing mass media.

A massive riot has broken out on the border between the Hubei province (its capital city is Wuhan, the supposed source of the outbreak of the Coronavirus) and neighboring Jiangxi province, on the Yiangtzee River bridge that connects the two provinces. Thousands of angry people who have been on lockdown for months swept out from the Hubei province in protest to try to cross the bridge, they were met by the riot cops of the neighboring province who prevented the protest from passing, despite the Chinese state saying restrictions have been lifted. Rioters turned over and smashed cops vehicles, assaulted the cop lines with rocks and even stole a riot shield from one van, attacking the cops with their own weapons. We hear that no one is really believing the Communist Party’s lies that the virus outbreak is under control and that the people have had enough of the repression.

It is only expected to see more anti-social rage like this break out around the world as governments and states show their true authoritarian nature in the face of Coronavirus and the mass fear that it is creating, which is a disease of its own.

We will be back soon with a report about the influx of technologies that are being rapidly deployed to repress us all even further, in the name of the war against Covid-19!

France: “The Worst Virus Ever… Authority…”

Monday, March 16th, 2020

About COVID-19, authoritarian delusions and the shitty world we live in…

The macabre death toll increases day by day, and in the imagination of each person takes place the sensation, at first vague then always a little stronger, of being more and more threatened by the Great Grim Reaper. For hundreds of millions of human beings, this imagining is certainly not new, that of death that can strike anyone, at any time. Just think of the damned of the earth sacrificed daily on the altar of power and profit: those who survive under State bombs, in the midst of endless wars over oil or mineral resources, those who coexist with invisible radioactivity caused by accidents or nuclear waste, those who cross the Sahel or the Mediterranean and are locked up in concentration camps for migrants, those who are reduced to pieces of flesh and bone by the misery and devastation caused by agro-industry and the extraction of raw materials…And even in the lands that we inhabit, in times not very long ago, we have known the terror of butcheries on an industrial scale, bombings, extermination camps… always created by the thirst for power and wealth of States and bosses, always faithfully set up by armies and police.

But no, today we are not talking about those desperate faces that we constantly try to keep away from our eyes and minds, nor about a history that is now past. Terror is beginning to spread in the cradle of the kingdom of commodities and social peace, and it is caused by a virus that can attack anyone – although of course, not everyone will have the same opportunities to cure themselves. And in a world where people are used to lying, where the use of figures and statistics are one of the main means of media manipulation, in a world where truth is constantly hidden, mutilated and transformed by the media, we can only try to put the pieces together, to formulate hypotheses, try to resist this mobilization of minds and ask the question: where are we going?

Corona Virus: An Epidemic of Stupidity & Authoritarianism

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

COVID-19 – known as the coronavirus – emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan. It’s flu-like symptoms enabled the quick spread of the virus within the city. It also allowed the spread of the disease beyond Wuhan despite the attempts of the Chinese government to curb it by resorting to drastic measures of arresting and detaining suspected carriers.

Now it has spread globally. As of March 5th, 2020, 97,893 people have been infected worldwide with 7100 cases being regarded as serious. 3353 people have died of whom approximately 3013 were in China and 340 in other countries. The most serious outbreaks outside China have been in northern Italy, Iran and South Korea. The rates in many countries may be under-reported because of health officials refusing to test people reporting flu symptoms, especially Japan. The virus has impacted an estimated 87 countries and territories. 53,786 people have recovered from the virus. (Statistics from various government health agencies as charted in this webpage) According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), it takes about five days from exposure before people manifest the symptoms of the coronavirus. Not surprisingly the elderly, very young children and those with respiratory problems are most at risk.

What is noteworthy about the coronavirus isn’t the virus itself. It has been the fear, misinformation and over the top reactions including panic buying that has occurred in many countries including here in New Zealand where there have been five confirmed cases of the coronavirus at the time of writing (1 News, 6th March 2020).

Summer in Smoke: Report from the World’s Biggest Black Block – Hong Kong (China)

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

The following article was submitted to Chuang by Vitalist International. It is an account of events in Hong Kong over the summer and early fall of 2019, much of it from a firsthand perspective. We provided minor edits and designed the layout, but otherwise reproduce the piece here in more or less its original form. While the main thrust of the article is in agreement with our own views of events in Hong Kong, the piece is an intake and the opinions expressed here belong to its authors. At the bottom, we’ve included a gallery (provided by the authors) of 70+ posters, memes, graffiti and other graphics used in the movement.

für Sandra in liebendem Angedenken

by Vitalist International

It was only a matter of time before it happened. The protesters and the cops both knew it. On October 1st, a teenager was shot point-blank in the chest by police. The bullet missed his heart by approximately three centimeters.

Thousands of Hong Kongers gathered the next evening at a playground to fold paper cranes and wish the young protester a speedy recovery. They held banners saying “stop shooting our children!” and used the flashlights on their smartphones as torches to light up the night. In the center of the playground, a thousand origami cranes spelled out “Hong Kongers, Add oil!”, a Chinese expression which has come to define the movement, meaning roughly: don’t stop, keep going, add fuel to the fire. Within an hour, the protesters were setting up barricades in the streets and throwing molotovs at the nearest police headquarters.

The movement that began as a protest against a proposed extradition agreement with China has now entered its fourth month of unrest, with no end in sight. The bill — now withdrawn — would have granted the Chinese State unprecedented authority to extradite dissidents, criminals, and refugees to be processed in the shadowy court system of the mainland. Coming on the heels of 2012’s Moral and National Education Law and 2014’s Electoral Reform Bill,[i] this amendment was only the latest attempt at slowly dismantling the region’s tenuous political arrangement of “One Country, Two Systems.” With the movement rapidly evolving into widespread resistance against Chinese control, and the Hong Kong government declaring a State of Emergency, the situation has reached a political stalemate, with violence escalating on both sides.

Formation of new FAI/IRF cell (Hong Kong)

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

We, the Autonomous Cell for Revolutionary Class Struggle/Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front, would like to announce our formation. We are ready to strike at the capitalist beast and it’s rotten state protectors. For in a city with a glamorous reputation and image like Hong Kong, the facade of success and business as usual is a slap in the face to the reality and the widening wealth gap and the alienation which this reality brings with it.

Around the world the forces of reaction are on the rise and so must it’s counter-force be also. Through both planned and spontaneous attacks against the system and the spectacle we aim to bring resistance to this shit state of affairs.

Through careful planning we aim to sabotage the systems of social control which have been put in place by the state on behalf of their capitalist backers. No longer will we be silent whilst people are enslaved, no longer will we be silent whilst the ecosystem is violated and destroyed, no longer will we be silent whilst we are killed by this rotten system.

We will strike where and when we feel, we will strike when it is least expected, we will be waiting in the night, we will be around every corner and we will be anonymous. Through autonomous action and in conjunction with other revolutionary cells around the world and an FAI cyber cell here in Hong Kong we aim to strike a blow to the spectacle, to the enslaving system.

In a system which commodities all life we have nothing to lose by fighting back. We will attack with fury and in solidarity with our comrades imprisoned in capitalism’s concentration camps.

We would like to express our best wishes and strongest messages of solidarity to our comrades around the world both in and out of gaol. We are many, we are not alone in this war and the state and it’s institutions have no problems with using violence against us and so we should return the favour in kind. For too long capitalism has been getting a free and easy ride, no longer is this the case.

Now is the time to fight…

Viva FAI/IRF!
