L’occupation massive des places publiques rappelle évidemment les Indignés d’Espagne, « Occupy Wall Street » aux Etats-Unis et l’occupation de la place Syntagma à Athènes. Tous ces mouvements ont eu lieu en 2011, dans la foulée de l’explosion révolutionnaire en Egypte, où l’occupation de la Place Tahrir avait joué un rôle central. (photo: Nuit Debout Paris)

Comrade Bill Landles died this Saturday evening after a short illness, at the age of 95. Many of our older comrades will have fond memories of Bill. It somehow seemed that he’d always be there, with his sense of humour and his commitment to the ideas of Marxism.
