100,000 page views yesterday for libcom.org!

By far our biggest day ever.

A lot of the recent increase in traffic has been due to our France CPE protests coverage. Our traffic at the end of Feb was about 80% up on December, 2 months before, since then it's kept rising and doubled in the first few days of the CPE protests to about 50,000 page views per day and yesterday it doubled again!

So please keep spreading the word, and if you want to donate anything to help us keep going please do, or if you want to help out with the site there's never been a better time, so please get in touch.

Well, just thought I'd let you all know red n black star

I noticed on Yahoo's coverage of the French riots they linked to Libcom.

Well done - but just think how many hits you would be getting if you had the French title enrager!

I know you're joking, but still sorry since the change our traffic has more than tripled... Also from that name people might assume our coverage was in French not English. Ha.

I'm sure many know these words by heart, but what the hell. All power to LibCom.

"It is possible that only a hundred of us will survive, but with that hundred we shall enter Saragossa, beat Fascism and proclaim libertarian communism. I will be the first to enter. We shall proclaim the free commune. We shall subordinate ourselves neither to Madrid nor Barcelona, neither to Azana nor Companys.... We shall show you Bolsheviks how to make a revolution."

"We have always lived in slums and holes in the wall. We will know how to accommodate ourselves for a time. For, you must not forget, we can also build. It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing this minute."

The words os Buenaventura Durutti, Anarchist Militia leader.

Congratulations, don't stop or let the side down. Not like you would, heh, heh.

Definitely, porn channels working class anger away from class struggle.

The stats took another fucking leap up today too.

Possible lesson: Real live mass working class action actually inspires people to belive in real libertarian and communist alternatives (for a moment) - especially if we have sound reporting and provide a link to this struggle like LibCom has just had recently. Well done y'all. I love it.

Now lets take it forward, and build on struggles like next Tuesdays mass pensions strike to consolidate this. And moving beyond mere reportage sometime? Maybe the time is well ripe for somthing like a wave of student occupations in the UK? The AUT/NATFHE action could have ploughed a fertile furrow? Hope springs eternal (in this ageing heart at least)!

Maybe, if we weren't on holiday!! tongue

Seriously, the AUT strike created minimal impact in students' lives...top up fees was the last real big student issue.

The only way to make real headway with the AUT assessment boycott is by uniting students against the uni admin rather than against their lecturers. But then, in my uni, the admin have sent out an email disassociating themselves from the dispute cos apparently lecturers' fees are worked out on a national basis (dunno the accuracy of that, maybe someone could clarify...?).
