Chilean anarchists in New York

Dates: Jan 21 - 25

Chile has a long history of working class struggle in shanty towns, factories, mines, community organizations, and schools. In the 20 years after the US supported coup which overthrew Salvador Allende’s government, much of the organizing was done underground. However after the fall of the dictatorship in 1990, there was a new rise of mass popular organization in the country. Anarchists have been a major force in the social movements, strategically organizing to build power. This has manifested in solidarity for the Mapuches, anarchists winning the student union elections at the University of Chile, militant pro-abortion actions, and libertarian labor organizations.

This national tour brings three individuals involved in these struggles to talk about the lessons learned and to create solidarity across hemispheres. From January to the end of February, the speakers will be traveling throughout the country and we hope that you can spread the word and hear about the important work that is happening in Chile.

Folks,
Here's a brief report:
The meeting last night., Thu. 1/23, went very well.
Attendance was about 35 people! Pablo and Gabriel's
talks were good. They showed some slides while they
talked. There was a good question and answer session.
The folks at The Base, Khalil and Elyse, were very
welcoming. It's a great space.

Hi, I've seen a texte claiming some anarchists whithin Red Libertaria are calling to vote for elections...

Red Libertaria seems to be a coalition of anarchist coming from different chilean communist-libertarian organisations

I was wondering if anybody here could comment about this.

It's in spanish

and here in French

There has been plenty of material published in this site, in French, Italian, English and Spanish on this embarassing affair. The organisation behind Red Liberttaria is called OCL.

The NJ and NY tour appears to have gone well with the touristas presenting and discussing before large and small assemblies of
workers, students, anarchists and other radicals. A diversity of locations were presented at. Frigid northeast temps did not hamper
attendance. All told, it seems that the comrades reached approx. 200 in-house attendees, ranging from 12 people approximately
60 people.

In regard to out of place comments above, the speakers did not represent the tendency and view they are being critical of.
As this posting has been about a tour, not the internal politics of Chile, which the touristas do not represent, I would ask
respectfully and comradely that the comrade find another place to air their views on the subject of their concerns.

Finally, a special thanks to Pablo and Gabriel for agreeing to do six events in five days. Their informative presentations and
easy styles was most appreciated. And to all the committee members who helped make the NJ and NY leg of the tour successful, two
thumbs up and gracias.

In the last 5 months, some anarchists from Regina have been engaged in the difficult process of creating a revolutionary anarchist organization and debating its political influences. As a result of these meetings and debates, we are proud to finally announce the existence of Prairie Struggle Organization based in Regina. To hopefully start a dialogue with anarchists in the west of Canada and beyond, we feel it important to let you know why anarchist politics in Regina are taking this direction.

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.

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.
