Just over a week ago, if you were thinking of cities in Spain most likely to host the start of a proletarian uprising, Burgos would have come pretty much at the bottom of the list.

A sleepy, socially conservative, traditionally ultra-Catholic city in the Northern Castille plain, Burgos was up until now mostly known for its Cathedral and other mediaeval real estate and a local sausage uncannily reminiscent of Clonakilty black pudding. But since the initial clashes between police and protesters in the working class district of Gamonal on the night of Friday 10th January, Burgos has seen nights of continual rioting, a veritable military occupation by riot police, and solidarity demonstrations this week around 46 cities in Spain, including two successive nights of demos in the capital Madrid, resulting in clashes with the police, arrests and injuries. All this supposedly over a plan to redevelop the main road through Gamonal into a tree-lined Boulevard.

Une analyse de la dynamique antisémite en France

I - Comprendre la dynamique antisémite pour mieux la combattre
II - « Complot sioniste-illuminatis », le « rebranding » du complot « juif et franc maçon »
III - L’impasse du légitimisme institutionnel bourgeois des institutions communautaires
IV - L’impasse de l’option sioniste
V - L’option révolutionnaire : la seule voie pour briser l’antisémitisme

Dans la rue, sur internet, au travail : l’antisémitisme explose. Pour la première fois en France depuis la seconde guerre mondiale, des enfants ont été assassiné parce que juifs, à Ozar Hatorah, à Toulouse. Des synagogues sont attaquées, des cimetières et lieux communautaires vandalisés. Des personnes agressées, insultées, parce qu’elles sont juives ou parce qu’elles sont considérés comme telles. Les propos antisémites explosent sur internet : la vieille rengaine puante du « complot juif mondial » se propage à grande vitesse par textes et vidéos...

"One Size Fits All", caricatura de Leonardo Ríos

Las recientes elecciones presidenciales en Chile, donde la no participación –superior al 50%- fue el ganador absoluto, eran predecibles de no ser por la aparición de un sector que se reclama de intención revolucionaria y de izquierda libertaria en el escenario político-electoral. La Red Libertaria (RL) se sumó decididamente y de manera entusiasta a la plataforma “Todos a la Moneda”, cuyo candidato fue Marcel Claude.

El objetivo nuestro no es cuestionar las formas mediante las cuales esta decisión fue tomada (o impuesta, según quien opine) y sus implicancias para el movimiento libertario en Chile. Tampoco nos ocupa, primordialmente, el impacto que tal decisión tiene para el campo específico que se reclama proveniente de la tradición anarquista. Mucho menos nos proponemos hacer un análisis del programa de “Todos a La Moneda” o de las fuerzas políticas que sustentaron esta plataforma. Nos interesa, en cambio, evaluar el impacto que esta decisión tiene para un sector mucho más amplio del pueblo que el representado por esta plataforma electoral y mucho más amplio que aquellos sectores provenientes de la tradición libertaria; compartimos nuestras reflexiones para contribuir al debate de carácter táctico y estratégico en este proceso de recomposición del movimiento social en Chile.

The destruction of the apartheid state form, with its odious policies of coercion and racism, was a major triumph for the working class in South Africa and elsewhere, showing that ordinary people can challenge and defeat systems that seem quite unbreakable. Mandela did play a heroic role, but was also the first to admit that “It is not the kings and generals that make history but the masses of the people, the workers, the peasants, the doctors, the clergy." And indeed, it was the black working class, above all, that through struggle tore down many features of apartheid by the late 1980s, such as the pass law system, the Group Areas Act and numerous other odious laws and policies.

The 1994 transition in South Africa was a political revolution, a break with the apartheid and colonial periods of state-sanctioned white supremacy, a “massive advance” in the conditions of the majority. It introduced a new state, based on non-racialism, in which South Africa was to be a multi-racial, multi-cultural but unified country, founded on human rights; welfare and social policy and legislation was transformed; capitalism was kept in place, but despite this, there were very massive and very real changes, political and material, that made qualitative differences in the daily lives of millions of black and working class people. And for millions, it is precisely the association of Mandela with that victory and with those changes that makes him so emotionally powerful.

Yet at the same time, Mandela’s policies and politics had important limitations that must be faced if the current quandary of South Africa, nearly 20 years later, is to be understood. Mandela never sold out: he was committed to a reformed capitalism, and a parliamentary democracy, and unified South Africa based on equal civil and political rights, a project in which black capitalists and black state elites would loom large. These goals have been achieved, but bring with them numerous problems that must be faced up if the final liberation – including national liberation – of South Africa’s working class is to be achieved.

The 1994 breakthrough was a major victory, but it was not the final one, for a final one requires a radical change in society, towards a libertarian and socialist order based on participatory democracy, human needs rather than profit and power, and social and economic justice, and attention to issues of culture and the psychological impact of apartheid.

As long as the basic legacy of apartheid remains, in education, incomes, housing and other spheres, and as long as the working class of all races is excluded from basic power and wealth by a black and white ruling class, so long will the national question – the deep racial / national divisions in South Africa, and the reality of ongoing racial/ national oppression for the black, Coloured and Indian working class – remain unresolved. And so long will it continue to generate antagonisms and conflicts, the breeding ground for rightwing populist demagogy, xenophobia and crime. By contrast, a powerful black elite, centred on the state and with a growing corporate presence, has achieved its national liberation.

Melissa Sepúlveda, presidenta de la Federación de Estudiantes de la Universidad de Chile

Melissa Sepúlveda, estudiante de medicina de 22 años, militante del Frente de Estudiantes Libertarios (FeL) y feminista libertaria de La Alzada, ha sido elegida, a mediados de Noviembre, presidenta de la Federación de Estudiantes de la Universidad de Chile (Fech) como candidata de la lista Luchar, con un 31,2% de los votos. Esta lista es la expresión de “un espacio de construcción político y social que se levanta a fines del 2011 con la finalidad de hacer converger diferentes trabajos de base existentes en la Universidad de Chile gestados por, organizaciones e independientes de Izquierda de Intención Revolucionaria que apuntan al desarrollo de un proyecto de Universi¬dad y de educación al servicio del conjunto social”, según lo explica su mismo programa. El FeL ha sido un animador y una importante fuerza dentro de esta coalición amplia que no solamente se articula en los momentos de elecciones estudiantiles sino que trabaja en los espacios de construcción y movilización permanentemente, desarrollando una propuesta de universidad dentro de un proyecto de transformación social radical del Chile actual.

Conversamos con Melissa para que nos explique la apuesta que como vocera de la Fech tendrá en el actual período. Clara y concisa, nos da un repaso de los desafíos que el movimiento popular, el movimiento estudiantil y el movimiento libertario tienen en momentos en que, ante la crisis del modelo, el bloque en el poder siente el imperativo de reformar para ganar en gobernabilidad. Adjuntamos, al final de esta entrevista, el programa sobre el cual Luchar ganó la presidencia de la Federación.
