Strengthening Anarchism on a regional level

Declaration by the 2nd Encounter of Especifista Anarchism in the Northeast


A further step forward in the advancement of Especifista Anarchism in northeastern Brazil has been made. Meeting in Recife, we sought to further the debate on Especifismo and the structuring of political groupings in our region, with a view to strengthening and consolidating our movement.

We believe that Especifismo goes beyond a simple organizational model and also means the beginning of its own theoretical construction within anarchism. Even if we do not yet have a common theory, we already have a similar political practice, which will certainly influence our joint theoretical development.

We study the classics, like Bakunin and Malatesta, as well as the more recent experiences of the comrades of the Federación Anarquista Uruguaya (FAU) since the 1950s. And so, we will be seeking to build elements for our own formulations in theoretical and organizational terms, in order to improve our political practice to plant the roots of our ideology.

In this challenge, we emphasise the importance of the active minority as a principle of especifismo. That is to say, for anarchists to work more in order to cause an increase in the struggles from within the social movements, seeking to develop more combative positions and horizontality. In a phrase: to create a strong people.

In the struggle for the construction of popular power, we understand "power" as the ability to do and not the ability to oppress. It is necessary to distinguish between the concepts of "power" and "dominion", where dominion means the practice of using the forces of the people against the people themselves. This concept is the result of our ideology and theory, and influences our strategy.

Mindful of the need for the consolidation and expansion of especifismo, our grouping is part of a historic effort of regional realignment aimed at strengthening the national coordination of the struggles. In this spirit, we welcome the Forum of Organized Anarchism (FAO) and other especifista organizations in the battle to build a Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (CAB - Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira) to be established in June this year.

Struggle, create, popular power!
Long live Anarchy!

opinio_anarquista.jpeg imageMessage to the Founding Congress of the Brazilian Anarchist Co-ordination (CAB) 13:51 Mon 04 Jun by Federação Anarquista Gaúcha 0 comments

In the days of June, in Rio de Janeiro, organised anarchism in Brazil will experience its greatest contemporary historical event. The Anarchist Congress, that will bring together groups from about 10 states across the country in debates, agreements and resolutions to act with common principles and tactics on the Brazilian reality, has a very special significance. Our conviction, in a more than 10 year process, says that militant anarchism holds indispensable contributions to the struggles for anti-capitalist social change. The meeting of militant forces that embody the same concept of work in co-ordination is a fundamental step in the journey of building political organisation that doesn’t just start now. [Português]

imageBrazil: Elements For a Historical Reconstitution of Our Current Jan 10 by OASL / FARJ 1 comments

Ten years of the Forum of Organised Anarchism (Fórum do Anarquismo Organizado – FAO) were commemorated with the foundation of the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira – CAB), uniting organisations from nine states around especifista anarchism as well as others that are progressively approaching and deepening organisational ties with us. In this text, we present a first contribution, with a few elements for a historical reconstitution of our current, that is, anarchism of the especifista matrix, in Brazil. We hope that other contributions can help boost it or, possibly, correct the information presented here.

"Towards a Libertarian Theory of Power" is a series of elaborated reviews about books or articles by authors from the libertarian camp who discuss power. Its objective is to present a contemporary literature of authors who treat the theme in question and contribute elements for the elaboration of a libertarian theory of power, that could contribute to the elaboration of a method of analysis of reality and of strategies of libertarian basis, to be utilised by individuals and organisations. Originally published in Portuguese on the site Estratégia e Análise. [Português] [Part 1: Ibáñez and Libertarian Political Power]

imageSocial Anarchism & Organisation: Concentric Circles Aug 13 by Federação Anarquista do Rio de Janeiro 1 comments

The specific anarchist organisation uses, both for its internal and external functioning, the logic of what we call "concentric circles" - strongly inspired by the Bakuninist organisational model. The main reason that we adopt this logic of functioning is because, for us, the anarchist organisation needs to preserve different instances of action. These different instances should strengthen its work while at the same time allowing it to bring together prepared militants with a high level of commitment and approximating people sympathetic to the theory or practice of the organisation - who could be more or less prepared and more or less committed. In short, the concentric circles seek to resolve an important paradox: the anarchist organisation needs to be closed enough to have prepared, committed and politically aligned militants, and open enough to draw in new militants.
