The revolution delayed: 10 years of Hugo Chávez’s rule
Nidiosniamonichavez-2.JPGThis month (February 2009) marks the tenth anniversary of Hugo Chávez’s coming to power in Venezuela, and ten years of the “Bolivarian revolution”. This process has included waves of state intervention in the economy and fervent rhetoric against US imperialism. But while some on the left see this Chavista movement as the new “socialism for the 21st century”, a more radical critique has argued that it is actually more like an old-fashioned attempt at modernisation by a technocratic élite (including an ex-situationist as second-in-command of the ministry of information and propaganda); that increased bureaucratic power over capital is not inherently progressive; and that the “revolution” in Venezuela allows for very little working-class control or initiative from below.

* A translation of a March 2008 interview conducted by the French anarchist Charles Reeve with two members of the El Libertario group www.nodo50.org/ellibertario in Caracas, the nation’s capital, which offers some stark insights into the reality of the situation.

Cambridge City Council Votes Unanimously to Oppose Surveillance Cameras
surveillance.PNGBOSTON -- In the first move of this kind in the state--and perhaps the nation--Cambridge City Council voted 9-0 on February 2, 2009, to oppose the installation in the city of eight surveillance cameras. The cameras were intended to form part of a network funded with a $4.6 million Department of Homeland Security grant linking Cambridge and eight other Greater Boston communities.

The Council took this action after two sessions during which Councilors sought to learn more about a secretive grant process that was four to six years in the making. They also heard testimony from dozens of Cambridge residents who feared the cameras could violate their First Amendment and privacy rights.

Defend the Hyde Square 7!
On October 21, 2008 seven Jamaica Plain anti-war and social justice activists were confronted by police while standing in conversation on a public sidewalk off Centre Street. When they asserted their right to assemble in public and asked for reasons why the police demanded to see their identification, they were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. The group, who has been called the Hyde Square Seven, has fought the charges. Over the course of three hearings at West Roxbury District Court, all motions to dismiss the charges have been denied, and the Hyde Square Seven will stand trial on Wednesday, January 28 at West Roxbury District Court.
