The Union Communiste Libertaire launches its new website


After several months of preparation, the UCL's website is now online at long last. The site contains all the latest news about the organization, archives of the federation's publications together with our basic documents, such as our Aims & Principles and our Constitution.

You can access the site at www.causecommune.net

This project had a double objective. On the one hand, we are seeking to increase the visibility of the UCL and the libertarian movement to the general public, that increasingly gets its information from the web. Like the federation's other publishing projects, we believe it is important to demonstrate through concrete and lasting achievements that anarchism as a project is both serious and accessible. On the other hand, we hope that the site can become a useful resource for activists, both members and non-members of the UCL, making material available that can be used to support the work of libertarians on the ground.

The activation of the site does not mean the end of the project for the UCL. In the coming weeks, the complete archives of "Cause Commune", Éditions Ruptures and the magazine "Ruptures" will be published online, as well as sections which will host our calendar of activities and mobilization materials. The blogs of the UCL's local groups, currently hosted at Google Blogspot, will also be moved to Causecommune.net.

On a technical level, the website uses Drupal 6, a free content management system, which will allow us to expand the site with the various modules created by the Drupal community. In terms of hosting, the UCL has chosen Koumbit, a self-managed collective of autonomous workers who are specialized in web technology.

Feel free to contact us with your comments and suggestions!

textM1 Mayday Statement 22:54 Mon 30 Apr by Chris Alexander 0 comments

Since May 1, 2006 we have seen a slow opening up of mass struggles on a scale not seen in recent memory, amplified by the silent economic crash in 2008. From the massive day without an immigrant to the historic Arab Spring; the Wisconsin workers uprising to the prisoners strikes in Georgia and California; Occupy Wall Street to the rallies for Justice for Trayvon Martin; General strikes of students in Chile and Quebec and of workers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. People committed to real change cannot help but feel the wind in our sails. People are rising and refusing, struggles are igniting, common ground is revealing itself, we are beginning to feel and take back our power, everywhere.

Despite the rise of new fighting forces, pain is growing not decreasing. Symbolic changes at the peak of empire—codename Obama—have only served to further entrench the direction of decline, with Democrats bringing the stick when the Republicans aren’t there to make their bad cop look good. Deportations have increased, prisons are overflowing, the local face of a global war given new legitimacy, while organized racist violence dares to seize an ever greater public stage. Cutbacks and the destruction of public safety nets pay for corporate welfare and bankers’ bailouts. Ecological destruction continues apace: tar sands mining, fracking, nuclear power, and the daily grind of a system that cannot long coexist with dignified human life on earth.

Mayday is not only a time to remember the sacrifices of so many before us who fought against all authority – capitalism and the state, patriarchy and white supremacy, empire and ecocide – but also a time to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of our movements today. In recent months the world has again been changed by the actions of masses of ordinary people.

imageAnarchism and the Philosophy of Pragmatism May 06 by Wayne Price 1 comments

Anarchism and the philosophy of pragmatism can add to each other. Pragmatism is explained as a philosophy of active experience and experimental naturalism. Pragmatism advocates radical, decentrlized democracy and industrial self-management, which is very close to anarchism. However pragmatists have often opposed reformist perspectives to revolution. The case for revolution is presented.

imageShould Anarchists Raise a Program of Demands? Jan 21 by Wayne Price 1 comments

This essay is slightly expanded from one which was rejected by a US anarchist magazine for political reasons. It deals with a disagreement among activists: Should we propose that the movement raise a program of demands? I think that anarchists should, but with a more libertarian-democratic version than the liberals and state socialists. The essay is followed by a response to the political points raised by the editors of the anarchist journal.
