Now, the way to take will be to create a new model organization: a Confederation of Autonomous Municipalities/Communities.

Michael Shraibman

In these days, we are discussing in some autonomous spaces in Russia the 'modern revolutions': the Arab spring, the Ukrainian Maidan (Euromaidan) and the revolts against the "bolibourgeoisie" in Venezuela that takes place nowadays. The results are always bad for the people. Even if society can protect freedom of speech, it is not able to cope with the oligarchy, corruption, poverty, police violence and gangsters.

One of the reasons of defeats of revolutions is that people are frustrated with the results (and false hopes) after the rebellion. The Parliamentary and party's system (the older or "newest") does not even reflect the interests of 99% of the population. Deputies can take any decisions -approximately- in 4 years, regardless of the opinions of voters. In addition, members of Parliament are associated with corporations, gangsters and their generalized interests. People get 'free' parliamentary elections and then they quickly come into economic depression -terrible and bloody revolutionary struggle was almost useless!-.

Another problem is the globalization of the modern economy. Great political and social instability lead to global business to remove their money from the 'revolutionary' countries. This leads to crisis of the economy.

Therefore, the result of modern democratic revolutions are depression, social passivity and poverty.

The only way show us some communal uprisings in México, a separate communes in Rojava or Spain (Marinaleda for example, without forgetting the memory that persists of 1936's revolution). There activity of people take at the same time more radical and more constructive forms. Peoples expels the police, military, officials and politicians, cease to pay taxes to the State, creating Autonomous Municipalities based on direct power of the assemblies, and use their collective funds to create a new infrastructure, communal companies and a cooperative economy.

In this situation, the real power passed into the hands of the collective of inhabitants of the town. They can no longer blame anyone for their problems. Now their life depends on themselves, on the effectiveness of communitarian collective work, communitarian militia (in the Mexican case, the Community Police or Community Round) and the communitarian self-management of all social relations*.

Now, the way to take will be to create a new model organization: a Confederation of Autonomous Municipalities/Communities.

* To nurture these experiences, I recommend to read the articles about community uprisings of the Mexican writer Demián Revart in the portal Libcom.org or It's Going Down.

The European organizations which are part of the Anarkismo network met on the 18th and 19th of November in Genoa. We discussed and exchanged, thought and reflected together, attempting as a network to plan a strategy for forward movement. Delegations from Wales, France, Italy, Switzerland and Ireland - with a warm solidarity statement from our Catalan comrades of Embat - expressed the need to clarify and deepen our common work.

The Anarkismo network has already published a statement that it would wait until all parts of the accusations by Reid Ross and Stephens were published, as well as the answers of M. Schmidt, before making any judgements on the case. Now that this has been forthcoming, as well as two more responses by Reid Ross, we are issuing a second statement to make public our intentions regarding the present situation.

This year marks the 140 year anniversary of the first anarchist International held at St.Imier, Switzerland, in 1872.

imagePost-Anarchism on the State—An Anarchist Critique Sep 09 by Wayne Price 0 comments

A review of the nature of the State as understood by anarchists, especially as proposed by the tendency called "post-anarchism." This is done through a review of the opinions of Saul Newman, a leading proponent of post-anarchism, in his work, "Anarchism, Marxism, and the Bonapartist State." The post-anarchist view is opposed by the class theory of the state, versions of which are raised by traditional, revolutionary anarchists and by Marx.

imageAn Anarchist View of the Class Theory of the State Jul 27 by Wayne Price 0 comments

In order to understand government politics, it is necessary to have a theory of the state. The essay reviews classical anarchist and Marxist views of the class-based, pro-capitalist, nature of the state. But there are also non-class and non-capitalist influences on the state. These need to be integrated into a class theory of the state.

textWill the revolution be anarchist/libertarian-communist/socialist? Mär 27 by Ilan S 0 comments

The revolution that will put end to the global capitalist system will survive if it will succeed in a very short time to replace the authoritarian power structure with a direct democracy one, in a big enough part of the developed world, that will be able to survive independently and protect itself.

textOur struggle must goes beyond what our lifestyle demands Aug 02 by Zaher Baher 0 comments

This article points out a couple of issues that are slowing down our movement. They are single issue and individualism & lifestyle. Many of our comrades in UK an Europe work only on a single issue, in addition some of us do not try hard enough beyond our lifestyle . Of course, our weaknesses are not only these two , in fact there are many more but in this article I just concentrate on these two.

imageWhat is an Anarchist? Am I an Anarchist? Mai 11 by Wayne Price 1 comments

Anarchism is an uncertain term. Self-identified anarchists sometimes see their particular school of anarchism as the only legitimate type of anarchism. For example, I have been told that I am not an anarchist or that what I believe is not anarchism. This happens most often over discussions about anarchism and radical democracy, or anarchism\'s use of aspects of Marxism, or support for technology, or advocacy of the self-organization of revolutionary anarchists.
