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

Tras la nefasta, injustificable y repudiable explosión en el subcentro de Escuela Militar afirmamos que nada volvería ser igual. El bloque en el poder ya está comenzando a mover sus fichas para refundar la Ley Antiterrorista, aumentar las atribuciones de las policías y en particular de la Agencia Nacional de Inteligencia. El bombazo generó una oportunidad única para legitimar ante la “opinión pública” dichas medidas de control social, prácticamente sin ninguna oposición, o cuestionamiento (salvo el tema de los “agentes encubiertos”). read full story / add a comment

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

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.

The Arab Spring redrew the battle-lines between over the control of information between the statist/capitalist elites and the popular classes – raising questions of increased restriction and surveillance, and of the limits of cyber-activism. In some ways this battle is often mischaracterised as being a narrow debate between cool intellectual property technocrats and wild-eyed free-use pirates, or as being a political dispute between authoritarian regimes and free speech activists, with no wider relevance to society. But it is clear that what is at stake is the global ideology (and exploitative practice) of corporatist enclosure versus that of the creative commons; in other words, it is more even than a universalist human rights concern, but is rather an asymmetrical war between the parasitic and productive classes over a terrain of power/wealth-generation known as the knowledge economy. read full story / add a comment

Uno de los grandes temas contingentes en las últimas semanas en el imaginario de la izquierda a nivel nacional, regional e internacional ha sido la muerte de Hugo Chavez. Evidentemente un personaje carismático y bastante excéntrico – líder de la llamada “revolución bolivariana”- que encabezó un proceso social, muy complejo, que contiene hasta ahora una gama de aciertos, contradicciones y limitaciones. Las diferentes tendencias políticas han dado condolencias, han planteado sus opiniones a favor del proceso o se han posicionado de alguna forma sobre este hecho y el proceso detrás. Los libertarios no se han excluido de este proceso de discusión y un conjunto de puntos de vista se ventilan en los diferentes medios no exentos de polémica. read full story / add a comment

La crescente pressione operata dalla campagna B.D.S. non solo preoccupa la classe dirigente israeliana, ma ne ha già provocato una spaccatura. Che si era manifestata nelle dimissioni del governo di Netaniahu e nell'indizione di nuove elezioni. L'esito è stato persino peggiore per lui. Ha perso la maggioranza all'interno della destra. Il suo 61% (contro il 59%) è stato ottenuto solo coalizzandosi con il centro-destra di Kakhlon che aveva già bloccato le mosse della destra tradizionale e di alcune tendenze di neoliberismo radicale. Un nuovo equilibrio di potere all'interno della classe dirigente israeliana potrebbe portare nel futuro immediato ad una coalizione con il partito di pseudo-sinistra della lista sionista o addirittura ad una diversa coalizione senza Netaniahu o persino senza il partito Licud. In questo contesto proseguono gli sgomberi di palestinesi - sia in Israele che in Cisgiordania. [English]

The election which was a response to rebellion in the elite - threatening to restrict his daily newspaper - resulted in a partial defeat. He is dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he is trying desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threatens to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague Court. The French initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the West Bank is an effort to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non-armed struggle the struggle continues. The very optimistic activists already feel the approaching victory.

imageAnarchist in Ireland on todays Marriage equality referendum May 22 by andrew 1 comments

Southern Ireland is voting toward on whether to allow Marriage equality, that is to extend marriage to couples of the same gender. Young migrants have flocked back to the country in the last 24 hours to help insure the referendum passes. If it does Ireland will be the first country in the work to introduce Marriage equality by popular referendum yet it was one of the last countries in Europe to decriminalise sex between men. In that sense the referendum is about much more than the issue of Marriage but it also a battle against the 'old Ireland' of clerical control and an authoritarian state that sought to control all aspects of the lives of those under its control. The articles that follow are some of the many that the Workers Solidarity Movement have published, for the most part via their Facebook page.

The xenophobic violence and looting following King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners “pack their bags and leave” spread to cities and townships across the country. However, the recent attacks are not an isolated incident; nor is Zwelithini solely responsible for fomenting it. Local elites – particularly those linked to the ruling party – also encourage anti-immigrant attitudes and actions. This article, based on discussions with Abahlali baseFreedom Park activists, looks at how local elites stimulate ‘xenophobia’ to protect their class interests, as well as how progressive working class activists have responded.

20 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

A cidade de Mahabad é conhecida como a capital do Curdistão iraniano, e hoje opera como o epicentro da rebelião popular dos curdos contra a autoridade xiita de Teerã. O Curdistão Leste (Rojhelat) viveu um momento de rebelião após o dia 7 de maio quando uma jovem curda se atirou do 4º andar de um hotel cinco estrelas onde trabalhava como camareira. O motivo do suicídio de Farinaz Xorowanî foi um ato de rebeldia contra agentes da inteligência iraniana (Itlaat) que, ao alegar querer interroga-la tentaram forçar um estupro. O sacrifício da trabalhadora resultou em rebelião franca e aberta, com as tropas anti-distúrbios da província e forças regulares da Guarda Revolucionária do Irã (Pasdaran) usando munição letal no meio da rua. Tal episódio, ao contrário de ser uma raridade, é a norma de convivência entre o regime dos Aiatolás e a esquerda curda. Nos dias posteriores, a polícia política dos aiatolás prendeu mais de 800 militantes sociais curdos, o que certamente irá aumentar a estatística regular de assassinados pelo Estado; cerca de cem ativistas por ano são enforcados pelas leis do fundamentalismo xiita.

Επομένως το μόνο πράγμα που μπορώ να πω σε μερικούς αρκετά καλοπροαίρετους αξιωματούχους των φυλακών της Μασαχουσέτης που κάποτε ζήτησαν τη συμβουλή μου, ήταν αυτό: Αν δεν μπορείτε να εξασφαλίσετε την κατάργηση του σωφρονιστικού συστήματος – μην δεχτείτε ποτέ ένα παιδί ή έναν νέο στη φυλακή σας. Αν το κάνετε, είναι δολοφονία. Και ύστερα, αφού μάθετε με την εμπειρία τι είναι οι φυλακές, αρνηθείτε να είστε δεσμοφύλακες και ποτέ μην κουραστείτε να λέτε πως η πρόληψη του εγκλήματος είναι ο μόνος κατάλληλος τρόπος για να το καταπολεμήσετε.

A dos semanas de las elecciones municipales se presentaba en Madrid,en el Teatro Lagrada la iniciativa política Apoyo Mutuo, una herramienta de ámbito estatal que pretende "convertir en actores políticos a las personas que no se ven representadas por la vía institucional".
Apoyo Mutuo ha hecho suyo el desafío marcado por el manifiesto “Construyendo Pueblo Fuerte” una iniciativa que nació hace un año en foros en internet, en los que militantes de colectivos libertarios impulsaron un debate en torno a la forma de actuar ante la nueva situación social y política. y que fue presentado al público el pasado 19 de febrero. En el texto se hacía un llamamiento a la autoorganización popular como método para construir una democracia directa de personas libres e iguales.

Ποτέ δεν εiναι αργά για να ανατραπεί η κατάσταση, όλα είναι στο χέρι μας, όλα μπορούν να ανατραπούν. Στο πλαίσιο αυτό χαιρετίζουμε και στηρίζουμε κάθε πρωτοβουλία αγώνα προς αυτή την κατεύθυνση. Για την χειραφέτηση των ανθρώπων! Για έναν κόσμο χωρίς αφεντικά.
Η αδικία σε έναν είναι αδικία σε όλους και αυτή είναι η δύναμη των εργαζομένων πάντα και παντού.

Παρέμβαση στην είσοδο του Αμερικάνικου Προξενείου πραγματοποιήθηκε σήμερα στις 19.30 από 15 συντρόφους της Συλλογικότητας "Μαύρο & Κόκκινο" υπέρ των Εξεγερμένων της Βαλτιμόρης των Η.Π.Α. που δέχτονται την κρατική βία και καταστολή, με τις σχεδόν καθημερινές δολοφονίες κυρίως αφροαμερικανών από μπάτσους. Με το που φτάσαμε έξω από την εισοδο του εμπορικού κέντρου, οι ασφαλήτες που μας ακολούθησαν έδωσαν σήμα να κατέβουν τα ρολά στην Τσιμισκή, οπότε η κεντρική πύλη του εμπορικού κέντρου (στο κτήριο όπου στεγάζεται και το προξενείο) έμεινε κλειστή για μια ώρα που κράτησε η παρέμβαση. Μοιράστηκε το παρακάτω κείμενο σε πολύ κόσμο που περνούσε από το σημείο ενώ πετάχτηκαν και τρικάκια. Οι μπάτσοι δεν προσέγγισαν το σημείο, παρά μόνο με ασφαλήτες που επιτηρούσαν αλλά στα cb ακούστηκαν πολύ αγχωμένοι φοβούμενοι μην προβούμε σε κάποια κίνηση εναντίον της ϊερής αγελάδας" του προξενείου των ΗΠΑ.

image[Colombia] ¡Con nuestra alegre rebeldía, a conquistar los derechos como clase! May 03 Acción Libertaria Estudiantil (ALE) 0 comments

La urgente necesidad de aprender del pasado para construir nuevos caminos que permitan llenar de victoria y dignidad las luchas de las de abajo, se presenta hoy como una tarea inaplazable tras la fatídica derrota que ha significado para el grueso de las trabajadoras[1] y la población en general la avalancha neoliberal que amenaza con destruir todos los derechos básicos que en su momento la organización y la lucha conquistaron.

Hoy, en medio de incesantes discursos que desde los medios hegemónicos de comunicación reproducen la idea de la prosperidad económica que prepara los caminos para la “paz”, muchas de nosotras vivimos una realidad muy distinta que protagoniza el grueso de las trabajadoras: la miseria y el hambre que ocultan las estadísticas oficiales, la degradación de las condiciones de trabajo que hoy evocan más del 50% (cifras oficiales) de la población laboral, llamada eufemísticamente informal, que se rebuscan la vida trabajando durante horas, a veces días enteros, para poder sobrevivir, soportando la imposibilidad de acceder a un servicio de salud digno y gratuito, a una estabilidad laboral que le permita tener la certeza de un buen mañana, o simplemente a envejecer con las garantías de que la vida de entrega al trabajo será recompensada con estabilidad económica.
