  • 03.05.2020 23:211may speech island
    Corona is the virus. Capitalism is the disease
    Speech, 1st of May 2020 during the corona crisis, by Ole Sandberg, IWW Ísland / Heimssamband verkafólks á Íslandi
    The "Novel" Corona Virus The corona virus is no exception. The common story is that it came from bats to humans in some marketplace in Wuhan in China. In reality, that was just when it was discovered. Viruses are common in all animals and usually harmless. When humans destroy the ecosystems where the animals live - which is a process of capitalism - animals get concentrated in smaller areas where it is easier for viruses to mutate and jump between species.
    But to really get going, this evolutionary process needs perfect conditions. The virus could have come from bats that were forced into the city, but it needed industrialized farming to turn into its current deadly form. It probably jumped from bats to an animal host in one one of China's many farms where animals are cramped on very little space to feed the growing work force of Chinese capitalist industrialization.
    And not just Chinese. China is not just the production center of global capitalism, and therefore has to feed its own workers in the cities. It is also produces food for global capitalism. China is one of the biggest exporters of poultry, and global investment firms invest in Chinese industrialized farming. So yes, the virus made have come from a bat somewhere in China. But it was capitalist production that created the conditions for it to mutate and become aggressive, and it was global capitalism that that caused it to spread around the world.
    It literally flew on business class from China to America and Europe using the same transportation routes as the people who rule our lives while they go on vacations and business trips. The epicenter in Europe was a playground in the Alps for the privileged classes of contemporary European aristocracy.

  • 03.05.2020 23:14police repression against a 1st may walk in Bremgarten (ch)
    Communiqué on the events of 1 May in Bremgarten AG.
    As reported by the media (e.g. Aargauer Zeitung), May 1 was honored on a small scale in Bremgarten. This walk took place under consideration of the BAG regulation (mouth protection and two meters distance). All participants adhered to these regulations. At no time was there a health risk for all participants as well as outsiders or persons requiring special protection. ...
    Numerous people were stopped and their personal data checked. Some of them were held for hours and put on public display. In addition, there were a number of body searches. We strongly criticize this unjustifiable behavior of the police!
    Especially in times of Covid-19 it must be possible to address and criticize political contents and current events in public. Of course, special attention must be paid to hygiene measures and the protection of risk groups.

  • 03.05.2020 23:10With the masses – for the masses: Revolutionary May Day in Zurich
    The police in Zurich have shown that the current crisis can be used as an excuse to restrict freedom of assembly. Although social-distancing rules were observed, the city and cantonal police tried to dissolve any political action - so it was not a matter of adhering to these rules, but of preventing political resistance.

  • 03.05.2020 22:51Fighting about housing – new solidarity in cities
    we got post <3 - here read the solidarity note to us in german:

    In times of the Corona emergency it becomes visible how necessary solidarity networks in the cities are, as they are presented and documented in our book.
    We see how the restrictions do not affect all people equally. The closure of event venues, restrictions in gastronomy, art and culture and other areas of work mean that precarious, undocumented or insecure working people lose their livelihood and often do not know how to pay their rent. Even the expulsion of people from their homes is by no means suspended in a time of constant reminders to stay at home, as a forced eviction in Cologne on 7 April shows.
    We therefore welcome it when people take to the streets around 1 May and on other days, while respecting health protection for the enforcement of their rights, emancipation, transformation and the utopia of a socio-ecologically just society. We support initiatives such as the transnational platform Coview-19 ( and the Berlin Social Alliance #jetzterstrecht (, which advocate a solidary response even in times of Corona.
    We offer initiatives and neighbourhoods to support them through readings, book presentations with pictures and videos and participation in discussion events. It has long been clear that the Corona episodes will keep us busy throughout the summer. We should use the coming weeks and months to contribute, for example with open-air events suitable for Corona, to bringing the idea of the new solidarity in cities into the discussion.
    Because solidarity is more than washing hands, wearing a mask and keeping our distance.

    To the photo: #STAY AT HOME was spread for weeks from the roof of the condominium luxury tower Living Levels in the evening and night hours. High-income owners* give behavioural recommendations to Berlin tenants* who suffer from exploitative rents, or even to homeless and homeless people. The Living Levels building has long been a real pain in the neck for Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. Not only are they being fueled by housing prices, but the banks of Berlin's river were privatized and built on against the public interest, against the interests of the citizen decision by MediaSpree. At present a direct connecting building is being constructed.

Ganz besonders gilt dies für undokumentiert Arbeitende, die ältere Menschen rund um die Uhr pflegen, auf Kinder aufpassen, Pakete austragen, in Restaurants putzen und abwaschen, auf Baustellen arbeiten, Büroräume reinigen oder Spargel ernten."

  • 01.05.2020 20:33why is police so often egor to prevent documentation of their „work“ (police violence vienna 3)
    Why do the police try so hard to prevent the documentation of their operations? Because they cover the police violence of the colleagues.
    This video is a good example: person sitting on the ground, policeman just kicks her.

    Rosa Antifa Wien @rosaantifawien
    Warum die Polizei so wehement versucht das Dokumentieren ihrer Einsätze zu verhindern? Weil die die Polizeigewalt der Kolleg_innen decken.

    Thessaloniki Social Radio 1431AM (Greece) did relay the Trans-national radio show today (97,3 FM) with solidarity.
    A big demonstration for the workers' day took place in the morning throughout the city and we covered it from our radio station. Thessaloniki is commemorating the historical uprising of the tobacco-workers of 1936, a pioneering action for the workers' movement
  • 01.05.2020 19:21<3 to to our radio crew from the ticker team - thanks for the awesome 3h show
    one thing to say - a lot of us who work in coview are precarious ourselves. we use a lot of the time we would otherwise (maybe) use for paid work for political work - as most of the jobs in creativity, culture, and arts are simply gone at the moment. there is not much or for some of us no compensation at all for this money we lose. still, our rent and our other payments continue. In this situation, we are also aware that there are others who are affected by this crisis in other ways. this is why we engage in actions like #LeaveNoOneBehind or support struggles for better working conditions in general. For us it's clear - only if we work together in a cross-sectoral way if we all support each other in this crisis and beyond - things can change. and the perspective is dark clouds. so this is why we do #mayday #transnational radio show and other things. because we all deserve a good life - let's aim for it together!
  • 01.05.2020 18:53we as workers will not die for profit
    This #InternationalWorkersDay let's make it clear that workers will not die for Wall Street profit, and will not work in unsafe conditions!
    I stand with all Amazon, Instacart, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Target and essential workers on strike for safe working conditions. #MayDay
  • 01.05.2020 18:17Police violence in vienna (2)
    Cops not only take away bicycles in the #Prater but also brutally arrest people. Cut the crap and let the people go! #mayday #Leavenoonebehind
    Cops führen im #Prater nicht nur Fahrräder ab sondern nehmen auch Menschen brutal fest. Lasst den scheiß und lasst die Leute frei! #mayday #Leavenoonebehind
    btw. something that was clearly visible today is that the police itself is not keeping distance in between themselves. They are not only risking others with that but once again show how they are willingly ready to endanger others - a critical mass demonstration with bikes is no danger to society - police hurting people is!
  • 01.05.2020 18:09police violence in vienna
    seems like the #mayday demonstration was to little action for the cops - so they somehow had the idea that its a good idea (?!?wtf) to kick people from their bike out of a driving bus?!
    #Polizeikontrolle: Im Prater wurden gerade zwei Radfahrer von der Polizei aus fahrendem Auto vom Rad getreten, weil sie am 1.Mai mit Demo Schildern friedlich die Praterhauptallee entlang gefahren sind. Polizeiaufgebot: ~70 Beamte, 25 Autos, 3 Motorräder und 1 Hubschrauber!

    In der Pandemie werden einige unserer Grundrechte massiv eingeschränkt. hat eine Verfassungsrechtlerin und einen Aktivisten gefragt, was das für politischen Protest bedeutet. Der 1. Mai 2020 wird kein gewöhnlicher 1. Mai werden. Wie kaum ein anderer Tag im Jahr ist der Tag der Arbeit geprägt von Demonstrationen. Politischer Protest ist in der Corona-Krise aber schwierig geworden. #MAYDAY
    Die Verordnungen zur Eindämmung des Coronavirus schränken in allen Bundesländern das Versammlungsrecht massiv ein. Allein in Berlin hat die Polizei seit Mitte März über ein Dutzend Anträge auf Ausnahmegenehmigungen abgelehnt und mehrere unangemeldete Demos aufgelöst. Eine Einschränkung der Grundrechte wie aktuell hat es in Deutschland seit Gründung der Bundesrepublik nicht gegeben. Hier weiterlesen!

Gegen das Abwälzen der Krisenfolgen auf die arbeitenden, arbeitslos gemachten und prekarisierten Menschen, auf Frauen und MigrantInnen. Für unseren Schulterschluss statt dem Nachgeben gegenüber Sozialabbau, Abbau von Grundrechten und wirtschaftlicher Verelendung. Solidarisch mit allen Betroffenen der Corona-Krise, mit den in Lagern an den EU-Außengrenzen festgehaltenen und von Abschiebung bedrohten Geflüchteten, mit den von Gewalt bedrohten Frauen, den politischen Gefangenen weltweit. Gegen Ausgrenzung und Ausbeutung, in Tirol, in Österreich, international.

  • 01.05.2020 09:44Tag der Arbeitslosen
    Bereits gestern beging die AMSEL in Graz  den Tag der Arbeitslosen mit einer Radiosendung bei Radio Helsinki
    Alle Jahre wieder, wird am 30. April der internationale Tag der Arbeitslosen gegangen. Heuer ist dieser Tag durch die Corona-Krise sehr speziell: Zum Einen, weil aufgrund der Corona-Krise die Arbeitslosigkeit schlagartig auf fast 600 000 Menschen massiv angestiegen ist. Knapp 900 000 sind derzeit in Kurzarbeit - ein Ende ist noch nicht vorhersehbar. Zum Anderen weil durch die Corona-Maßnahmen die österreichischen Arbeitsloseninitiativen heuer nicht mit öffentlichen Aktionen auf das Thema "Arbeitslosigkeit" und das Schicksal der Betroffenen aufmerksam machen können. Auch die AMSEL musste ihren Infotisch mit der Suppenküche vor dem AMS-West daher absagen. Stattdessen hat die AMSEL 2 Presseaussendungen mit Forderungen wie zum Beispiel den Sanktionen-Stopp und die Anhebung des Arbeitslosengeldes an die Politik, an das AMS und an die Medien geschickt
  • 01.05.2020 09:39Call for rent-strike in the USA
    In the USA the Action Network is calling for a country-wide rent strike
    If you can't pay the rent on May 1st you are not alone. We’re stronger together and now is the time for tenants to act collectively. Millions not paying rent doesn’t build power by itself; we only build power by making our individual actions public and collective! By joining this movement, we are making a coordinated demand for relief.
    The COVID-19 crisis is making clear what many tenants have known for a long time: we are all just one life event – the loss of a job, a medical emergency – away from losing our homes. Today, millions of New Yorkers are out of work. That means millions of us will be unable to pay the rent on May 1st. So if we can’t pay, let’s not pay, together! On May 1, unless our demands are met, many of us can't pay. 
    So if we can’t pay, let’s not pay, together! The crisis has caused a reduction in income for many of us, and the government response has been to shore up banks, large investors, and landlords

  • 01.05.2020 03:34Soap for IOM
    a 48h campaing for "soaps for IOM" is about to finish - but we are sure you can still send another soap to them!
    Transbalkan Solidarity invites you to participate in a 48-hour soap-bombing protest campaign directed at the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which manages camps for the confinement of people on the move in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    Why do we need to take action?
    Conditions in the camps run by IOM in BiH during the COVID-19 pandemic resemble those in concentration camps:
    violence against people in the camps is on the rise,
    food is constantly insufficient and not nutritious enough while even more reduced and worse in quality,
    hygienic conditions are concerning,
    healthcare remains at a bare minimum,
    people are denied the freedom to move and leave the camps for an indefinite period.

    Transbalkan Solidarity contends that:
    Soap is not a luxury!
    Trash is not food!
    A camp is not a living space!
    A tent is not a house!

    article about the last years in Paris on 1st of may and the question of what will happen this year?
    1st May: for processions without processions
    Why do we still have to demonstrate on May 1st? After a rapid historical review of the evolution of demonstrations since 2016, we realize that social distancing may very well lead to the dissolution of purely trade-union marches and the development of wild marches.

  • 30.04.2020 20:57Dortmund: #Grenzenlos Solidarisch
    The rally "#Grenzenlos Solidarisch zum 1. Mai" in Dortmund can take place in principle. However, there is a dispute between the organizers and the public order office about the details, which demands a list of the participants.
    coview.cats says: no lists for the police - we know how much lists of people who are politely active can be misused!
    we wish all the best to Dortmund and hope the manifestation can take place without disproportionate irregular demands from the police

  • 30.04.2020 20:41Fundamental rights not only for nice weather! Out on May 1st!
    A committee of people called out to support 1st of may demonstrations in Austria:
    ... It must be clear that the costs of this crisis cannot be paid for by the workers*, the small self-employed and one-person businesses, but that the large fortunes must be touched, i.e. the rich must pay the costs of the crisis with wealth and inheritance taxes. At the same time, however, it must be made clear that there must be no restrictions whatsoever on basic democratic rights and the constitutional state.
    We are therefore calling for people to take part in rallies and demonstrations on the first of May, observing the necessary safety distances, thus making it clear not only that we are prepared to take to the streets for our social rights, but also to defend our fundamental rights and the democratic constitutional state. In this extraordinary situation, in which most political parties have canceled their May Day demonstrations, we have therefore decided, as a committee of persons, to call on people to take part in the rallies and demonstrations.
