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 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.

In light of the disbanding of the Federación Anarco-Comunista Argentina we believe that this is a very important step both for our shared especifista tendency as well as for the development of anarchism in general, both in Argentina and the region.

This year marks the 140 year anniversary of the first anarchist International held at St.Imier, Switzerland, in 1872. In celebration of the anniversary an international gathering was called in St.Imier in mid-August.

videoComunique from A(A)A. Anon Anarchist Action 04:47 Do 24 Feb by NetAnarchist 0 comments

In the last few years, Anonymous has gained increasing notoriety for its action against websites, agencies and organizations that promote censorship and control. It has helped spread information and supported protestors demanding freedoms and rights. But the popularity of the movement, the attention it brings along, and the structure it has engendered threaten to push Anonymous away from the decentralized, collective movement it has been. As decisions become more centralized and newcomers jump on the bandwagon, Anonymous risks becoming yet another ineffective reformist group, fueled by well-meaning rethoric but subject to third party interests and paralyzed by its fear of authority...

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.

imageOn the Question of Violence and Nonviolence As a Tactic and Strategy Within the Social Protest Movem... Apr 13 by David Van Deusen 0 comments

Nonviolence can be used in many circumstances as an effective tactic, but it is irrelevant, irresponsible, and utterly ridiculous to even consider it as a strategy. So yes, nonviolence should be utilized as a tactic where pertinent, and in turn pacifism, as an ideology and a strategy, must be purged from our movement.

Under the title, "The Two Main Trends in Anarchism," a selection of my writings has been published in Greek. ΟΙ ΔΥΟ ΚΥΡΙΕΣ ΤΑΣΕΙΣ ΤΟΥ ΑΝΑΡΧΙΣΜΟΥ. The writings are taken from Anarkismo, except for the following, which was written originally for the new book. It focuses on the centrality of a vision of freedom, cooperation, and happiness in the program of anarchist-socialism.

imageLeftists and Communists have damaged the Socialist movement as much as the right-wing did Okt 04 by Zaher Baher 1 comments

There are many people from leftists, communists , socialists and some of the anarchists believe that Marxism and Leninism are two different things . They think that Lenin has distorted Marxism. My article here explains with evidence that whatever Lenin said and did have been originated from Marx . It tells you that Marxism has contributed greatly in damaging the socialist/ anarchist movement as much as the rightwing did.
The article analysis the role of technology, Proletariate , political party, bourgeoisie, nature and environment , revolution and nation question in view of Marx and connecting Lenin to him.
