A call to arms this Saturday in Dublin

On Saturday tens of thousands of workers will be marching through Dublin, Ireland demanding that the public sector pay cut ('pension levy') imposed by the government to pay for the capitalist crisis be withdrawn. Over the last couple of weeks there have been dozens of local union meetings of workers in the public sector, demanding strike action to halt the cuts. The march will be a chance not only to put pressure on the government but also to demand that our unions do the only thing that can halt the cuts - call a national strike.

The Irish anarchist organisation, the WSM, will be meeting up to leaflet the march at 1.30 at the Parnell monument. We will then be joining the demonstration with a banner demanding a National Strike. Please come along and give us a hand if you're in Ireland. Otherwise this collection of articles written by WSM members details both the depth of the crash and the growing resistance to the attempt to make the working class pay for the bust.

Alternatives to Capitalism

We are constantly being told that the only economy that works is the capitalist market economy. However, events over the last few weeks have shown this to be a lie. Capitalism is a crazy way in which to run a society. But are there any alternatives? And if so, what are they and how would they work?

In this debate (originally hosted on Znet), two leading thinkers outline other economic systems. Michael Albert and Wayne Price put forward their respective positions and reply to each other in a series of 10 short articles.

Wayne Price, a member of the North American anarchist organization NEFAC and a regular contributor to Anarkismo, argues the case for Anarchist Communism, while Michael Albert, co-author of Parecon and founder of Znet, speaks on behalf of Participatory Economics. Each article is then commented upon by the other author, who then each have an opportunity to respond before making a final conclusion.

Everything comes tumbling down

With financial giants toppling at rates that shock even seasoned financial commenter, many of us are left wondering, how did this state of affairs come to pass. What is becoming obvious is that the financial markets have become increasingly complex. In this article, Paul Bowman looks the nuts and bolts behind the economic headlines, explaining what is it that is being sold and why nobody seems to be able to stop the chaos from unfolding.

This is the first part of a series of articles investigating the capitalist financial markets from a critical perspective. With such a large topic it is tricky finding a route into the subject and a plan of enquiry. The chosen road is to start with a look at the financial markets, particularly focusing on the mechanics of some of the instruments that have led to a momentous transformation of the workings of global financial markets in the most recent decades.

At first sight, this approach may seem odd, perverse even, like examining the internal workings of a clock as a prelude to discussion the social relations of time. However this "inside-out" approach is justified by the fact that as well as a system of social relations, capitalism is also a system with internal mechanics. Those mechanics evolve in response to the historical development of struggles over exploitation, but what new directions the new mechanics make possible in terms of capitalist strategies, in turn, shape the new struggles of today and tomorrow. The next article in the series will place these market mechanics in their fuller historical context. But for now let's start by investigating the mechanics of capitalist financial markets.

Estrategia Libertaria

Desde una buena parte hasta ahora, se ha iniciado un nuevo período de lucha entre las clases sociales en Chile y en el resto del continente. Esta situación ha posibilitado que algunas expresiones políticas parciales del proletariado vayan madurando en términos programáticos distintas iniciativas y diseños políticos en los espacios de lucha social. A pesar de esto, creemos que este largo camino de agrupamiento de pequeñas prácticas subversivas, por organizar y dar coherencia a las dispersas luchas del proletariado, hasta ahora, muchas veces ha carecido de la humildad necesaria que pueda iluminar las prácticas cotidianas de lucha.

Pero aun así, más allá de la historia que cargan las distintas organizaciones políticas en Chile, creemos sinceramente y sin caer en el clásico vicio de la “política de jefes”, que es necesario un mayor diálogo entre éstas, que permita compartir visiones y diagnósticos y perfilar ejes comunes que orienten nuestras acciones, teniendo en consideración distintos elementos, que revisamos a continuación.

En este escrito, pretendemos aportar al necesario debate y reflexión sobre el actual contexto, marcado por la desaceleración económica y la crisis política, y sobre el estado actual de las fuerzas de la clase trabajadora. Nos interesa especialmente contribuir en la reflexión sobre varios puntos cruciales, en términos estratégicos y tácticos, que son necesarios resolver dentro de una perspectiva revolucionaria.
