There are two main trends in anarchism, which agree on antistatism and anticapitalism and opposition to all oppression, but disagree on revolution, democracy, prefigurative politics, and class struggle.

It has been stated by various theorists that there are two main trends in modern anarchism. How they are conceptualized varies with the writer. I will state how I see the two broad tendencies in the anarchist movement, using the books Anarchy Alive! (Uri Gordon) and Black Flame (Micahel Schmidt & Lucien Van der Walt) to illustrate the two trends. I will describe them as differing on the issues of revolution or reformism, of democracy, of what “prefigurative politics” mean, and of attitudes toward the working class.

Anarchist Communists: a Question of Class

Anarchist Communists: a Question of Class is a theoretical position paper of the FdCA of Italy and a key contemporary exposition of the principles of anarchist communism – the principles of, among other organisations, the FdCA and southern Africa's ZACF. This critical review of Question of Class appeared in abridged form (for space reasons) in "Zabalaza" #10 (April 2009). The review is now published in full.

Anarchism is not an abstract ideal of freedom springing out of the brain of some intellectual. It is not a dream of utopia unconnected to reality. It is a movement of the exploited workers, beginning in their daily material struggles; and its history is marked by a sustained link between anarchist theory and the continuing struggles of mass working class movements.

This was the perspective of Mikhail Bakunin, the founding theorist of anarchism, whose revolutionary ideas grew out of his experience in the 19th century working class movement of the First International. It was the perspective of the Organisational Platform of the Libertarian Communists, drafted by Ukrainian and Russian anarchists in response to the defeat of the Russian Revolution by the Bolsheviks. It is the perspective taken by long-standing ZACF militants, van der Walt and Schmidt, in their two-volume history of anarchism, Counter-power. And it is the perspective of the ZACF's Italian comrades of the Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici (Federation of Anarchist Communists, or FdCA), in their excellent theoretical position paper “Anarchist Communists: a Question of Class”.

From June 4th to 7th, European voters are called to the polls to choose who will "represent" them in the European Parliament.
As anarchist communists, we do not think elections can bring any real change, as we prefer direct democracy to representative democracy. In other words, we prefer decisions affecting all workers to be discussed and made by those workers themselves, collectively.

The European Union's functioning and goals are opposed to this self-managing model and thus to the interests of the workers and the people. Its leaders despise the people so much that, although they may ask for our opinion, the only answer allowed is one which accepts the EU's political line which has already been decided eslewhere. The EU's attitude to the rejection by referendum of the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe exemplifies this fact.

Primo Maggio Comunista Anarchico

Il Primo maggio, ieri come oggi, significa rispetto per le mobilitazioni dei lavoratori di tutto il mondo che hanno sofferto, pagando anche con le proprie vite, nelle lotte per cambiare la condizione di uomini e donne sottoposte al controllo del capitalismo nel mondo.

Noi comunisti anarchici rivendichiamo la lotta per un cambiamento radicale della società verso una società di libertà, uguaglianza e solidarietà, ma non possiamo dimenticare che in molti paesi non si è ancora raggiunto il livello minimo di garanzie di espressione sindacale, e c'è chi lavora a condizioni e salari subumani. Il nostro pensiero oggi va a queste realtà con il rafforzamento delle reti di sostegno alle lotte dei popoli di tutto il mondo.

Il compito dei comunisti anarchici e dei rivoluzionari per la libertà e l'uguaglianza è di raccogliere questa memoria e portarla nelle lotte del presente, quale forza agente parte costitutiva del movimento dei lavoratori, un movimento che deve diventare una vera forza rivoluzionaria in grado di distruggere il capitalismo e inaugurare una nuova era di libertà, solidarietà e uguaglianza.

Comunicato internazionale per il Primo Maggio, a firma di: Alternative Libertaire (Francia), Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici (Italia), Workers Solidarity Movement (Irlanda), Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (Sud Africa), Common Cause (Canada).

Coordination anti-Otan

Dans le contexte actuel de crise, de raréfaction des ressources naturelles et énergétiques, les tensions s'accroissent entre les grandes puissances pour le contrôle de la planète. Pour répondre à cette nécessité les pays occidentaux développent leur bras armé, l'OTAN, afin de mener leur politique agressive et impérialiste.

L'OTAN, qui fête ses soixante ans d’existence, organise son sommet annuel les 3 et 4 avril sur la frontière franco-allemande (Strasbourg et Baden-Baden) sous la bannière de la liberté, la paix et la démocratie.

Nous appelons à manifester contre l'OTAN partout dans le monde et à participer au contre-sommet, au sein du village alternatif anti-OTAN, du 1er au 5 avril afin de contrecarrer les politiques bellicistes et impérialistes, par des manifestations, des actions, des rencontres et des débats.

[Communiqué d'Alternative Libertaire à l'issue du sommet]
