Britanski profesori: Borit ćemo sa studentima protiv školarina

Objavljujemo otvoreno pismo podrške profesora prosvjedima britanskih studenata i učenika protiv podizanja školarina u Engleskoj objavljeno u Guardianu 22. studenog 2010. O studentskim prosvjedima u Engleskoj ove jeseni smo već objavili prijevod teksta Richarda Seymoura Kralj Sunce i ja te prijevod teksta iz Socialist Workera.



Borit ćemo sa studentima protiv školarina

Podržavamo dan protesta protiv školarina u srijedu, nastavak veličanstvenih demonstracija studenata, učenika i profesora od 10. studenog. U potpunosti se protivimo uništenju svima dostupnog, kritičkog obrazovanja koje bi trebalo biti zamijenjeno obrazovanjem za tržište što ga veliča izvješće lorda Brownea. Branimo ne samo svoje poslove, nego i vrijednosti koje su nas privukle visokom obrazovanju, a koje održavaju značaj obrazovanja za društvo u cjelini. Prijedlog vladajuće koalicije da se srežu izdvajanja za umjetničke studije, društvene znanosti i humanistiku prijeti nam gubitkom ne samo generacije umjetnika (izvješće od 15. studenog) nego i generacije kritičkih i kreativnih mislilaca.

Planirano povećanje školarinâ praktično znači ukidanje visokog obrazovanja za radne ljude (i, prema Institutu za fiskalne studije, neznatne uštede za porezne obveznike). Ukidanje stipendijâ za životne troškove i školovanje odraslih prokazuje neistinitost tvrdnji vladajuće koalicije da će oni s nižim prihodima i dalje imati pristup visokom obrazovanju – takvi studenti zapravo neće uopće biti u mogućnosti ostati u sustavu obrazovanja nakon što navrše 16 pa tako ni steći kvalifikacije potrebne za pristup višem ili visokom obrazovanju. Koalicija nema ovlasti da nametne takvu klasnu vladavinu temeljenu na ideologiji – gnjev studenata stoga ne iznenađuje. Namjeravamo se boriti s njima u svojim ustanovama kako bismo obranili društvene znanosti, humanistiku i umjetničke studije te zaštitili visoko i više obrazovanje dostupno svima.

  • 30. lipnja 2021. Interseks osobe i njihovi problemi Interseks stanja obično se razumijevaju kao stanja koja variraju „između“ ženskog i muškog spola, i čija genetska, kromosomska, hormonska, i anatomska (ne)preklapanja uzdrmavaju binarnu konstrukciju „ženske“ i „muške“ spolnosti. Patrijarhalna proizvodnja medicinsko-biologijskog znanja ne samo da diskurzivno gura interspolne osobe u identitetske kutije „ženskosti“ i „muškosti“ te produbljuje njihovu marginalizaciju, već nameće i opasne prakse sakaćenja tijela koja se ne uklapaju u dominantnu taksonomiju. Raspršivanje ustajalih mitova možemo započeti ozbiljnijim informiranjem o iskustvima interseks osoba, kao i povezivanjem s organizacijama koja štite njihova prava.
  • 19. travnja 2021. Startupi neće riješiti nezaposlenost u Italiji Talijanski i strani korporativni gurui koji već desetljećima mantraju neoliberalne trope poput digitalizacije, očekivano pozdravljaju Draghijeve najave poreznih olakšica digitalnim startupima kao inovativne. Međutim, dosadašnji digitalizacijski napori, usmjereni na privlačenje stranog kapitala i zaogrnuti agendom društvene mobilnosti kroz malo poduzetništvo, niti su doveli do smanjenja nezaposlenosti, niti do procvata tehnološke učinkovitosti od koje bi stanovništvo zaista imalo koristi.
  • 17. travnja 2021. Tesla proglašena krivom za razbijanje sindikata "„Ovo je ogromna pobjeda za radnice i radnike koji su imali hrabrosti usprotiviti se i organizirati u sistemu koji trenutno u velikoj mjeri ide u prilog zapošljavatelja poput Tesle koji ne prezaju od kršenja zakona“, izjavila je potpredsjednica UAW-a Cindy Estrada „Iako slavimo pravdu sadržanu u današnjoj presudi, ona naglašava supstancijalne mane američkog Zakona o radu. Ovdje imamo primjer kompanije koja je očito prekršila zakon, a ipak mora proći tri godine prije negoli radnice i radnici pogođeni time dobiju ikakvu pravdu.“"
  • 10. travnja 2021. Nema dokaza za zabranu sudjelovanja trans žena u sportu Ideologem kojim se učvršćuju anti-trans norme i regulative, te legitimira isključivanje trans žena i interspolnih osoba iz ženskog sporta, zasniva se na vizuri spola kao biološkog. Potom se, još vulgarnije, sport razumije kao polje kompeticije koje poglavito zavisi od hormona, veličine organa i sličnih spolnih obilježja. Međutim, ne postoje utemeljena znanstvena istraživanja koja bi potkrijepila pretpostavku da trans žene općenito imaju bolje sportske performance u odnosu na cis žene, niti je istraženo kako točno na njihove predispozicije utječe hormonska terapija, dok je mit o automatski boljim rezultatima zahvaljujući većoj razini testosterona već srušen. S obzirom na to da su razlike u izvedbi unutar svih sportskih kategorija prije svega individualne, možda je vrijeme da se dovede u pitanje i mit o podjeli sporta na „ženski“ i „muški“.
  • 25. ožujka 2021. Spomenici, nazivi ulica i osporeno sjećanje "Ponosno „anti-woke“ pozicioniranje samo je posljednji u nizu vladinih pokušaja da memorijalizira bjelačku supremaciju. Meghan Tinsley izvještava o politici komemoracije."
  • 20. ožujka 2021. Talijanska vlada outsourceala je ekonomsku strategiju privatnoj konzultantskoj firmi McKinsey Još jedno postavljanje premijera „odozgo“ u Italiji znači nastavak tehnokratskih politika u sklopu kojih se čelnike_ce ne bira demokratski, dok se potez legitimira navodnim kompetencijama koje posjeduje izabrana osoba. Nekoć vodeća figura Europske centralne banke, premijer Mario Draghi formirao je kabinet koji je također sastavljen od „stručnjaka“, onih koji pretežno podupiru ekonomske politike već potvrđene kao devastirajuće po živote stanovništva u Italiji. Vrhunac ove navodno neutralno-ekspertne misije potez je kojim ekonomski plan oporavka od posljedica pandemijske krize ne donose čak ni ovi stručnjaci, nego je zadaća delegirana drugoj „stručnoj“ instanci ‒ privatnoj konzultantskoj firmi za upravljanje McKinsey. Birače i biračice i dalje nitko ništa ne pita.
  • 13. ožujka 2021. Zeleni feministički val u Čileu Zelena marama simbol je prosvjeda latinoameričkih feministkinja i feminista protiv kriminalizacije pobačaja, sveprisutna i u Čileu – jednoj od država u kojoj su zakoni u pogledu reproduktivnih prava najkonzervativniji. Nakon trodesetljetnog učvršćivanja neoliberalnog modela i drakonskog napada na reproduktivnu pravdu, Čileanke_ci dobivaju priliku da u procesu promjene pinočeovskog ustava kreiraju strukture koje bi mogle poboljšati njihove živote. Jedna od ključnih stavki koje feminističke skupine nastoje ugraditi u nacrt novog ustava upravo je emancipatorna reproduktivna politika koja će odlučno dekriminalizirati pobačaj.
  • 13. ožujka 2021. Pobjeda za radnike i radnice u sudskom sporu oko Ubera Odlukom britanskog Vrhovnog suda koja daje pravo zaposlenima u Uberu na minimalnu nadnicu i plaćeni godišnji odmor, konačno ih se legalno prepoznaje kao radnice i radnike, a ne kao samozaposlene. Ova važna pobjeda za radničku klasu u sukobu rada i kapitala dolazi nakon dugotrajne borbe, prije svega zahvaljujući inovativnim sindikalnim grupama koje su prepoznale da novi oblici eksploatacije u okviru ekonomije honorarnih poslova iziskuju i nove oblike otpora i kolektivnog radničkog udruživanja.
  • 13. ožujka 2021. Prijedlog izgradnje ugljenokopa u Cumbriji duguje svoju popularnost izostanku zelene alternative "Vlada je odgovorna za stvaranje održivih radnih mjesta u dijelu zemlje koji još uvijek nosi ožiljke nanesene desetljećima deindustrijalizacije te se oporavlja od ekonomskih psoljedica pandemije COVID-19"
