Prisoners from across the United States have just released this call to action for a nationally coordinated prisoner workstoppage against prison slavery to take place on September 9th, 2016.
2016 is shaping up to be a year of social movements: Black Lives Matter, trans-equity, teachers and workers struggles. It is also an election year, and one candidate, Bernie Sanders, has activists and organizers across the country “feeling the bern.” But is the enthusiasm justified, will electing good politicians lead to substantial change?The case of Kshama Sawant shows that no matter how good the candidate, business as usual rules in elected office.
This article is part of an ongoing series called “Socialist faces in high places” looking at the left in relation to the electoral path and state power.
In the last couple of weeks, the Black community in Baltimore has mobilized protests in response to the brutal murder of Freddie Gray by the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).The news footage of Baltimore’s Black youth resisting riot cops is reminiscent of images from the Ferguson protests last summer. Yet, they are also reminiscent of the 1992 Los Angeles Uprising, as well as the many eruptions of popular unrest across the U.S. in 1968 against racist police violence. And we can go farther and farther back into history. The stories are many. The death toll to racist state violence is vast. And many are wondering: Is this our moment to bring down the racist capitalist system?
Anarkismo.net presenta esta entrevista realizada por el periódico anarquista chileno Solidaridad a Abelardo Marińa Flores, activista político, profesor de Economía Política y, actualmente, Jefe del Departamento de Economía de la Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana-Azcapotzalco. En ella se analiza la profunda crisis por la que atraviesa el Estado mexicano y sus políticas represivas que, de la mano de la llamada guerra contra las drogas, se están traduciendo en masivas violaciones a los derechos humanos en contra deu na población que resiste. Dentro de estas violaciones, la desaparición de 43 estudiantes de Ayotzinapa es un hecho escandaloso, pero ni es excepcional ni puede abstraerse de la historia de brutalidades del Estado mexicano.
Why hasn't there been more rebellion in the US lately? What are the indications that a popular movement may develop which leads to revolution? What is meant by revolution, anyway?Throughout the USA there is discontent. Under the apparently placid political surface there is bubbling dissatisfaction. Yet there has been only limited rebellion, all kept within the limits of Democratic-Republican politics as usual. Certainly, to most people, the possibility of a revolution — an uprising against capitalism and its state — seems distant, if not absurd. I want to argue that a revolution is quite possible (but not inevitable). And I want to clarify what revolution means.
Most political theorists ask why there are occasional rebellions and revolutions. I think it is more fruitful to ask why there are not more rebellions — popular struggles leading up to revolutions. Consider the unfairness of a tiny minority — the “one percent” — ruling over and getting rich from the big majority. Consider the dangers of ecological catastrophe, economic collapse, and nuclear war, not to mention many other issues of oppression and unfairness. Why do people put up with this? Why isn’t there at least a large movement to get rid of this system?
