Southern African anarchists condemn apparent Terrorist blasts in London


We, the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Federation (ZACF) of southern Africa, stand foursquare with the working and poor people who were apparently the targets of the craven July 7th bus and train bombings in London. We were previously called to task by another leftist revolutionary organisation for offering similar sympathies in the wake of the Madrid train bombing on March 11th last year. But we are unrepentant in our bitter opposition to terrorism in all its forms, whether driven by state or sub-state opportunism.

It matters little to us that a supposed "Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe" has claimed responsibility for randomly slaughtering at least 33 ordinary travellers today and injuring scores more. It matters little that the killers may cloak themselves in high ideals, perhaps including religion.

The stench of fascism is real: the only beneficiaries of today's global "strategy of tension" (the misnamed "war on terror"), that thinks nothing of the lives or ordinary people are those who, like the vultures of the G8 elites roosting at Gleneagles, are left cold by the pleas of humanity.

What matters is that humanity refuses to be led like sheep to the slaughter by their leaders, united by the common red blood that was spilled today. We, the "great unwashed", are the only thing that stands between terrorists - whether they lurk in the shadows or bask on TV - and the barbarism they attempt to midwife.

Our deepest sympathies to those who lost family and friends today and a speedy recovery to those who are hurt.

- Michael Schmidt (International Secretary, ZACF, southern Africa)

imageInternment, parading and the politics of class Aug 28 by Sean Matthews 0 comments

The eruption of conflict and intense rioting in Belfast over the last couple of months is a clear illustration that, no matter what lengths Stormont and the media circus go to to disguise the ugly reality of the ‘peace process’, the scars of the past and frequent eruption of sectarian conflict refuse to go away as political parties play the sectarian card to get one over on their rivals.

imageNuclear weapons and Scottish independence May 21 by Eric Chester 0 comments

The Scottish National Party has insisted that an independent Scotland would be free of nuclear weapons, says Eric Chester. This position reflects the fact that Scottish popular opinion is overwhelmingly opposed to the stationing of the Trident submarine system at Faslane. These subs, a leftover from the Cold War days, are nuclear powered and carry ballistic missiles armed with nuclear weapons. The SNP campaign to rid Scotland of nuclear weapons has provided one of the few salient arguments for independence. [Italiano]

The latest disturbances come as Stormont Assembly leaders, Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness meet to discuss another wave of street protests, and their concerns about the damaging effect it is having on the economy leading up to the busiest shopping period of the calendar. But as each issued a separate statement calling for protests to come to an end, loyalist gangs flexed their muscles, blocking off streets and hijacking cars.
