Spanish term or phrase: revoluciones mensuales
This is actually from a texr by an Argentine artist in the 1970s, but I think it refers to monthly reports...

Por otro lado, no creo que Ud., con toda su vaga pomposidad, con su indiferencia y mezquindades diarias y en sus actividades serias y lucrativas -perdón- serias y respetables que incluyen: guerras, revoluciones mensuales, la explotación del hombre por el hombre, fraudes legales y no legales, estafas abiertas y disimuladas, pequeñas crueldades personales hechas en nombre de una supuesta moral o supuesta disciplina, torturas y persecuciones dictadas por dogmasreligiosos o doctrinas políticas pretendidamente absolutas; a la larga haya contribuido más que yo al hipotético bienestar de una especie que, en última instancia, tampoco tiene sentido.

monthly revolts

This could be a possibility, depending on what kind of "revoluciones" the text refers to.

uprisings on a monthly basis

A (perhaps less revolting) suggestion, I think it fits nicely with the tone of the piece.
For brevity, we have "monthly uprisings":
up·ris·ing: Noun: An act of resistance or rebellion; a revolt: "an armed uprising".

BTW - I think this is a pro-level query.

Another nice synonym is "insurrection"...
in·sur·rec·tion - Noun: A violent uprising against an authority or government: "opposition to the new regime led to armed insurrection".
