Global Crisis; American Nightmare

A global economic crisis has brought a new Great Depression to the doorsteps of working class families. While the corporations, government officials, and bureaucracies are experiencing record profits and compensation, those who are least able to pay are expected to shoulder the majority of the burden. This collapse is placed upon the backs of workers, and even more to the most oppressed in working class communities, for example: working class women, immigrants, blacks, and latinos. Despite the promises of a Democratic congress and presidency, deportations of undocumented immigrants have dramatically increased since Obama took office, tearing communities apart and criminalizing whole populations. If we don’t fight back, the crisis may drive a permanent decline in our standard of living, deepen the domination over the oppressed, and widen the gaps in American society.

But people are coming together and finding ways to support and struggle alongside each other in ways that haven’t been seen in generations. The potential of a mobilized, conscious, and active movement frightens those in power, and they are pouring money, resources, and repression into diverting potential movements. People all over the world are building new struggles: turning vacant foreclosures into homes, resisting tuition hikes and worsening education in universities, fighting cuts and injustice at work, resisting ICE deportations and challenging second class status for immigrants, launching fare strikes on transit against service cuts and fare hikes, and resisting racialized police brutality and violence against oppressed communities. Attempts to coopt these potential movements are coming out of the unions who fear changes in the comfortable relationships they have with management, from the NGOs who are funded by and keep their jobs through all those who profit off our suffering, and from the political machinery that wants to channel our anger into their careers.

Depuis 2008, partout dans le monde, les classes populaires luttent contre les politiques d’austérité qu’on tente de leur faire avaler à coup de discours serviles et de violence policière. La détermination est grande, les combats sont parfois épiques, mais les victoires sont malheureusement très rares. Les étudiantes et les étudiants québécois ont présentement tout en leurs mains pour créer une brèche dans ce long parcours de défaites populaires et de repli.

Don Jennings (1960-2012)

The Anarkismo.net Editors Group wishes to express its deep sadness on the passing of our comrade Don Jennings. Don, or Randy as he was better known to us, was a member of our Editorial Group for a number of years, when this site was still in its infancy. He was also a regular contributor of reviews and articles.

We will always remember him as a deeply human person with a great sense of humour, calm and reflective, though passionate in his refusal to accept the injustices of this world. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. We take this opportunity to extend our solidarity and sympathy to his family and friends.

Occupy May 1st!

Build Power & Show Power through Mass Participatory Bold Action

To show our power, on May 1st, 2012, we will be organizing for such a mass participatory and bold collective action: a national general strike, mass boycott, student strike/ walk-out and mass day of action. We will be organizing within our unions- or informal workplace organizations where there’s no union or the union isn’t supportive- to hold a one-day general strike. Where a strike is not possible, we will be organizing people to call in sick, or take a personal day, as part of a coordinated “sick-out”. Those who are students will be walking-out of their schools (or not showing up in the first place). In the community, we will be holding a mass boycott and refusing to make any purchase on that day.

We, the 99%, will build our power and show our power until we've occupied our workplaces, our communities, our schools, our lives, our world... until we've occupied everything!
