ireland / britain / history of anarchism / debate Wednesday May 11, 2016 23:12 by René Berthier
On February 2016, the Weekly Worker, website of the Communist Party of Great-Britain, published a (hostile) review of René Berthier’s book: « Social-Democracy & Anarchism » (Merlin Press). (http://weeklyworker.co.uk/worker/1094/bakuninist-hatche...-job/)
This review, titled « Bakuninist hatchet job », was written by Mike Macnair and was an answer to Berthier’s book as well as to Dave Douglass’ (friendly) review (http://weeklyworker.co.uk/worker/1086/when-marx-was-a-r...mist/).
This is Berthier’s reply to Mike Macnair. read full story / add a comment

Murray Bookchin was an influential and prolific writer and thinker on anarchism. Recently his work has been in the news. While he made significant contributions, he made a major error in rejecting the working class as important for an anarchist revolution. This article reviews why he believed this and why, on the contrary, the working class must be a major force for a successful anarchist revolution. read full story / add a comment

Anarquismo e sindicalismo :
Os debates sobre a herança de Bakunin antes da Grande Guerra

René Berthier

Após a morte de Bakunin, produziu-se uma ruptura com os princípios que o revolucionário russo tinha elaborado. Segundo ele, a Internacional devia conservar o seu caráter de organização de massa : os trabalhadores não deviam aderir a partir de uma ideia, um programa, mas com base a solidariedade recíproca e a defesa dos seus interesses materiais. Bakunin considerava que o movimento operário internacional não tinha atingido um nivel de desenvolvimento homogéneo e que seria necessário longos anos de debates internos para atingir à esta homogeneidade. Entretanto, era necessário encorajar estes debates, mas impedir a todo custo a imposição de um programa único para a Internacional – projeto que Bakunin atribuia à Marx.

A response to Crimethinc's statement, "Why We Don't Make Demands." Wayne argues that revolutionary anarchists should propose to movements which they are part of to raise militant, radical, demands. Done in dialogue with the people, it moves the struggle forward and challenges the state and the capitalist class. read full story / add a comment
machrek / arabie / irak / impérialisme / guerre / débat Tuesday November 25, 2014 10:58 by CATS
Voici deux textes traduits de l’anglais sur la situation au Rojava, le Kurdistan autonome syrien, et sur l’attitude que les anarchistes devraient avoir envers le mouvement populaire (pas uniquement kurde d’ailleurs) dans cette région.
Ces deux textes sont symptomatiques du débat parfois agité qui traverse le mouvement anarchiste sur la question de la révolution en cours au Rojava, et plus globalement sur les luttes de libération nationale.
Ils sont révélateurs des méfiances, des réticences, des distances récurrentes (et parfois des renoncements honteux) ou, au contraire, des rapprochements, des solidarités, des espoirs non moins récurrents (et parfois des vaines illusions) que ce type de lutte en général et cette révolution en particulier peut susciter dans nos milieux. read full story / add a comment

Anarcho-syndicalists should should hold no illusions about the Rojava Revolution. Since the turn of the millenium there have been reports of a libertarian municipalist turn in the Kurdish national liberation struggle inspired by Murray Bookchin. This change in politics has been lead by jailed founder and ideological leader Abdullah Öcalan of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) who discovered Bookchin while in prison. The PKK a former Maoist/Stalinist organization had turned to ethnic nationalism after the fall of the Soviet Union and discreditation of “really existing socialism” and so such a turn has been welcomed by many on the revolutionary left. However such processes of political transformation do not automatically translate to full adoption within a populace nevermind their official representation in leading parties. Please note that a reply to this article has been published by the Anarkismo.net Editorial Group: An Anarchist Communist Reply to ‘Rojava: An Anarcho-Syndicalist Perspective’ read full story / add a comment

southern africa / the left / debate Wednesday August 06, 2014 20:58 by Red and Black Action   image 1 image
OVERVIEW: There is a healthy skepticism among many activists about simple grand plans, arising partly from disastrous Marxist experiments like the Soviet Union. But the opposite — faith that struggles spontaneously reach the best outcomes if freed of theory and plans — has serious problems. Many struggles falter or are captured as old mistakes are made again. Capitalism and the state cannot be defeated by a growing wave of loosely linked alternative “spaces” and experiments. These systems are based on coercion and exploitation; their defeat requires large-scale confrontation by a coordinated bottom-up working class counter-power with clear politics. The point of resistance is to change the world: it is not an aim in itself, just a response; a politics fetishising perpetual resistance must rely on a world of oppression. Closing discussion by labeling views “dogmatic” is a recipe for imposing other positions and elites through the backdoor. There is no need to repeat the tragic errors of the past. Other revolutionary theories from working class struggles – like anarchism and syndicalism — share no blame for the failures of vanguardism and reformism, and have valuable insights on building a participatory, transformative, project of “people’s power,” and on moving from resistance to reconstruction.It is important to speak openly about theory, strategy and vision, and to engage openly with the revolutionary traditions of the popular classes, like anarchism and syndicalism, born of our past struggles, and distilled from those struggles. read full story / add a comment

"Entre os anarquistas existem os revolucionários que acreditam que é necessário abater, pela força, a força que mantém a ordem atual, para criar um ambiente no qual seja possível a evolução livre dos indivíduos e das coletividades. E existem os educacionistas que pensam que só se pode chegar à transformação social, transformando antes os indivíduos, por meio da educação e da propaganda. Existem partidários da não-violência ou da resistência passiva, que evitam a violência ainda que seja para combater a violência. E existem aqueles que admitem a necessidade da violência, os quais se dividem, por sua vez, no que diz respeito à natureza, alcance e limites da violência licita." read full story / add a comment

southern africa / workplace struggles / debate Friday March 07, 2014 05:44 by Lucien van der Walt   image 1 image
Lightly edited transcript from Lucien van der Walt’s discussion at 1st National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) Political School, September 2013. From his debate with Solly Mapaila, 2nd deputy GS of the South African Communist Party (SACP) on anarcho-syndicalist versus Leninist views of the revolutionary potential of unions. A version was printed in ASR #61 2014, pp. 11-20

Captures van der Walt’s main points: the debate on the anarcho-syndicalist view that revolutionary trade unions, allied to other movements, creating a self-managed worker-controlled socialism through mass education, counter-power and workplace occupations; anarcho-syndicalism as a working class tradition; the anarcho-syndicalist view that unions can potentially be more revolutionary than political parties including Communist Parties, & be revolutionary without leadership by parties; the view that electioneering can be replaced with direct action campaigns; that the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939) shows unions taking power and making a bottom-up worker-controlled revolution; and how NUMSA’s current actions refute Marxist-Leninist theory; other problems with that theory’s traditional approach to unions; and the implications of all of this for current debates over the form of a new socialist movement in South Africa and elsewhere; and the nature of the South African ruling class and the primary social contradictions.

Lucien van der Walt is co-author of “Black Flame: The revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism” (w.Michael Schmidt, 2009, AK Press) and co-editor of “Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1870-1940” (w. Steve Hirsch and Benedict Anderson, 2010, Brill). He has a long history of involvement in the working class movements. read full story / add a comment

Two weeks ago, Nosotros los Pobres had the good fortune to host a presentation by two members of the Federacion de Estudiantes Libertarias of Chile, with whom we had a very productive exchange of ideas. Soon after that, I saw a statement published by the FEL, commenting on the situation in Venezuela, in which they expressed sympathy for the “Venezuelan people” in their resistance against a coup d’etat. As a member of Nosotros los Pobres, I wanted to share some thoughts about Venezuela and what’s going on there, both now and for the last 15 years, and I hope they will be useful for especifista comrades as well as for concerned and informed people generally. read full story / add a comment

Examining the theory and practice of ‘mass’ anarchism and syndicalism, this paper argues against Daryl Glaser’s views that workers’ council democracy fails basic democratic benchmarks and that, envisaged as a simple instrument of a revolution imagined in utopian ‘year zero’ terms, it will probably collapse or end in ‘Stalinist’ authoritarianism—Glaser also argues instead for parliaments, supplemented by participatory experiments. While agreeing with Glaser on the necessity of a ‘democratic minimum’ of pluralism, rights, and open-ended outcomes, I demonstrate, in contrast, that this ‘minimum’ is perfectly compatible with bottom-up council democracy and self- management, as envisaged in anarchist/syndicalist theory, and as implemented by anarchist revolutions in Manchuria, Spain and Ukraine. This approach seeks to maximise individual freedom through an egalitarian, democratic, participatory order, developed as both means and outcome of revolution; it consistently insists that attempts to ‘save’ revolutions by suspending freedoms, instead destroy both. Parliament, again in contrast to Glaser, from this perspective, meets no ‘democratic minimum’, being part of the state, a centralized, unaccountable institutional nexus essential to domination and exploitation by a ruling class of state managers and capitalists. Rather than participate in parliaments, ‘mass’ anarchism argues for popular class autonomy from, and struggle against, the existing order as a means of winning economic and political reforms while—avoiding ‘year zero’ thinking—also building the new society, within and against, the old, through a prefigurative project of revolutionary counter-power and counter-culture. Revolution here means the complete expansion of a bottom-up democracy, built through a class struggle for economic and social equality, and requiring the defeat of the ruling class, which is itself the outcome of widespread, free acceptance of anarchism, and of a pluralistic council democracy and self-management system. read full story / add a comment

bolivia / peru / ecuador / chile / anarchist movement / debate Thursday October 17, 2013 20:42 by C.A.L.   image 1 image
Until a few months ago we had a libertarian movement in which different ideological expressions of the popular movement came together, but with certain shared elements such as recognition of the need to build organizations from the bottom, outside the State, promoting at all times internal democracy and the leading role of those directly involved, with the clarity on a strategic level that the task was to build popular power with class autonomy and encourage direct action as the main political tool for social transformation. However, the appearance of the Red Libertaria as part of the Todxs a La Moneda movement which supports the presidential candidacy of Marcel Claude and the recent sign from the Frente de Estudiantes Libertarios rejecting this initiative have only served to initiate a split within the libertarians, where it seems that reformist and authoritarian positions have achieved hegemony over part of the militants, and to which anarchists have only stood on as passive spectators.

Sono rimasto felicissimo nel vedere, finalmente, come un gruppo anarchico nel Nord del mondo faccia un tentativo serio di capire quello che succede in Siria ed esprima chiaramente la sua posizione sulla rivoluzione siriana. Mi piace molto e sono d'accordo per la maggior parte con quanto espresso nella parte finale intitolata "La nostra posizione", ma ho parecchi problemi con le parti precedenti di introduzione e di sfondo. Ecco quindi alcuni miei commenti nello spirito del vostro invito che auspica "opinioni di altri, in particolare di coloro che hanno più esperienza nell'area e specialmente da anarchici che vivono nella regione", nella speranza che possano contribuire ad un dibattito più informato tra gli anarchici e ad una comprensione, una presa posizione e un'azione migliori per quanto riguarda la Siria.

This article defends the argument that anarchism/syndicalism emerged in the 1860s, as a libertarian form of socialism, opposed to social and economic hierarchy/inequality, favouring international class struggle and revolution, from below, for a self-managed, socialist, stateless order; it defends the necessity using a truly global history and analysis, placing the colonial and postcolonial world, and a wide range of mass movements, centre-stage, in order to grasp the "canon" of texts/thinkers/theories that must be ‘regarded as authoritative for anarchist thought and practice or especially significant in the historical development of anarchism’. It rejects claims that anarchism is a timeless "orientation" existing outside of contexts and classes, and demonstrates the methodological and analytical problems that arise from such approaches, including tautology, assertion and selective use of evidence. read full story / add a comment

argentina/uruguay/paraguay / historia del anarquismo / debate Saturday August 31, 2013 04:39 by Oleguer Vall Font   image 1 image
Uno de los debates más polémicos en el seno del movimiento anarquista, al menos en Iberia, es su relación con los llamados “nacionalismos de resistencia” (en un país de la periferia del sistema mundo podríamos llamarlos “nacionalismos populares”).

A través de un escueto análisis de una de las organizaciones anarquistas más influyentes en la Latinoamérica de la segunda mitad del siglo XX se verá que para el caso del Uruguay, país tan lejano geográficamente como cercano culturalmente, el anarquismo adoptó ciertos símbolos del nacionalismo popular a partir de los sesenta. Lo interesante del asunto es que este hecho no tuvo la consecuencia de la asunción de toda la estructura simbólica “nacional y popular” sino que se podría decir que la Federación Anarquista Uruguaya tomó exclusivamente aquellos aspectos que podían ser útiles a su proyecto revolucionario. Este hecho considero que introduce una nueva línea de debate en tanto que supone defender la incorporación algo descontextualizada de algunos elementos del “nacionalismo de resistencia” sin caer en la asunción de todos sus aspectos pero tampoco en rechazarlos todos a priori.

Este primer número es entonces un acercamiento a la complejidad ideológica de una organización que hizo historia y teoría en un tiempo convulso y de cuyo legado es, cuanto menos, útil aprender.

Salud y Anarquia

The first years of the joint struggle against the wall had some gains that drew activists to the struggle. However, for years the continuous joint struggle have much more gains, but not on the ground for people to see with their eyes. Gradually both Palestinians and Israeli activists dropped out with not so many to replace them. Still, on the weekly demonstrations the participants - Israelis, internationals, and Palestinians are far from any thought on quitting. We see the changes in the international arena. Taste of it is brought to us by the international activists who keep coming. If the weekly demos reminded activists the activity of Sisyphus of rolling a heavy rock uphill to the summit just to have it down again, it is clear to any one who see the whole picture that the rolling of the rock uphill again and again is decimating the hill and may be we are not so far from the last rolling of the rock up the hill.

O Senado concluiu por volta de 6h30min da manhã de 12 de maio de 2017 um golpe branco, perfeitamente orquestrado, afastando a presidente reeleita Dilma Rousseff, por 55 votos a favor do afastamento contra 22 pela manutenção no cargo. Com esta votação, o PMDB chega ao poder pela terceira vez de forma indireta. Antes com Tancredo Neves e José Sarney em 1985, no retorno de Itamar Franco para a legenda de Ulisses Guimarães em 1992 após o impeachment de Fernando Collor de Mello e agora com Michel Temer assumindo o Planalto por ter sido reeleito na mesma chapa da ex-guerrilheira. Dilma recebera 54 milhões de votos em 2014 e trazia consigo o vice-presidente eleito com ela em 2010, através de uma aliança defendida ainda no governo pelo ex-ministro da Casa Civil de Lula, José Dirceu de Oliveira e Silva em 2005 e ampliada pela hoje presidente afastada quando a mesma fora indicada para a pasta antes ocupada pelo ex-todo poderoso capa preta da legenda petista.

imageBeyond "Zuma must fall", beyond choosing between elites May 14 by Warren McGregor 0 comments

A constant fixation on the machinations of elite power manoeuvring, and persistent, recurring calls for either new leadership, or new political parties, are evidence of a very conservative and authoritarian political culture. These stories may well be important. Indeed, this is the nature of current socio-economic organisation (capitalism and the state). These human-created forms of control always operate to centralise power up the hierarchy, thus investing tremendous power in the hands of very few. This few – race, gender, rhetoric regardless – the ruling class, are those who control the means of production, administration and coercion. Our pre-occupations are drawn to such elite individuals and groups as many of us have chosen to hand over our political power and future to these. Now this political culture usually results in the general and often vain belief and hope that through hierarchical, fundamentally undemocratic organisation, leaders invested with this incredible power are somehow to create the foundations for a more equal society and world. Also important to consider is that all political parties, no matter the colour of its beret, whether in control of the state or seeking to attain this control, centralise the power of decision-making upwards, and are thus fundamentally authoritarian and anti-democratic.

Σε όσους μάχονται υπέρ των ίσων δικαιωμάτων σε όλους κι όλες τους εργάτες κι εργάτριες, υπέρ της νομιμοποίησης όλων των μεταναστών και μεταναστριών και ενάντια στην ανισότητα στους χώρους εργασίας με βάση το φύλο ή την ηλικία, οι διαχειριστές των καπιταλιστικών συμφερόντων, ΣΥΡΙΖΑ-ΑΝΕΛ, απαντούν με καταστολή και διώξεις.

Τη Δευτέρα 9/5 είχε προγραμματιστεί συναυλία της Ενάτης του Μπετόβεν από την Κρατική Ορχήστρα Θεσσαλονίκης στο Μέγαρο Μουσικής με αφορμή τη μέρα της Ευρώπης. Η Ελευθεριακή Πρωτοβουλία Θεσσαλονίκης μαζί με συντρόφους/ισσες πραγματοποίησε παρέμβαση με πανό και μοίρασμα κειμένων έξω από το Μέγαρο Μουσικής ως μια ελάχιστη προσπάθεια να καταδείξουμε την υποκρισία της Ευρώπης των αφεντικών, του σύγχρονου ολοκληρωτισμού. Η παρέμβαση βρήκε θετική ανταπόκριση από αρκετό κόσμο που πήγαινε να παρακολουθήσει τη συναυλία ενώ απολαυστικά ήταν τα βλέμματα μίσους αρκετών αστών και "μένουμε Ευρώπη" στη θέα του πανό.

Λόγω της φανερής έλλειψης συνδικαλιστικών δομών στους χώρους δουλειάς, της ξεπουλημένης γραφειοκρατικής ηγεσίας της ΓΣΕΕ και του συνδικαλισμού που ταυτίζεται με τις μικροπολιτικές κομμάτων τύπου ΠΑΜΕ, υπάρχει ένα μεγάλο κενό στις διεκδικήσεις των εργαζομένων απέναντι στα αφεντικά. Αυτό το κενό θα προσπαθήσουμε να καλύψουμε μέσω του συντονισμού που θέλουμε να φτιάξουμε, με σκοπό να προσεγγίσουμε εργαζόμενους και να συσπειρωθούμε μαζί τους γύρω από τον συνδικαλισμό βάσης.

Τη στιγμή που και οι τελευταίες ψευδαισθήσεις του κοινοβουλευτισμού καταρρέουν, αποδεικνύοντας την απάτη των κάθε λογής σωτήρων, τη στιγμή που ο μύθος της ΕΕ της ειρήνης και της ευημερίας γκρεμίζεται από τις στρατιές των ανέργων και των προσφύγων που την κατακλύζουν, τη στιγμή που εξαντλούνται τα όρια της στοιχειώδους επιβίωσης, της δημοκρατικής επίφασης και της προσμονής για ένα καλύτερο αύριο, τα διλήμματα είναι πια ξεκάθαρα και κανείς δεν μπορεί να υποκριθεί πως δεν τα διακρίνει: ή με κάθε μέσο παραμονή στην ΕΕ και το μνημονιακό καθεστώς ή έξοδος από την ΕΕ, διαγραφή του χρέους και πόλεμος με την αστική τάξη και το κράτος της. Με άλλα λόγια ή παραμονή στον καπιταλιστικό μονόδρομο ή κοινωνική επανάσταση.
