ireland / britain / history of anarchism / debate Wednesday May 11, 2016 23:12 byRené 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

Αυτό το βιβλίο εξερευνά τις συγκρούσεις που έλαβαν χώρα στην Πρώτη Διεθνή. Οι κοινωνικές και οικονομικές συνθήκες ποικίλλαν σε μεγάλο βαθμό στην Ευρώπη των δεκαετιών 1860 και 1870. Οι στρατηγικές που υιοθετήθηκαν από τις διάφορες Ομοσπονδίες και τα Τμήματα της Διεθνούς Ένωσης Εργατών, ή IWA, αντικατόπτριζαν αυτή την πολυμορφία. read full story / add a comment
Trotsky tinha uma série de voluntários tanto para sua guarda pessoal como para o trabalho político. Mas ao contrário do que estamos acostumados no anarquismo, o ex-dirigente bolchevique trabalhava em um quarto próprio enquanto sua base em outra sala.

Nesta última postagem a respeito do crime histórico e da farsa política no México trago algumas observações do Museu Trotsky, onde estive em fevereiro de 2016 durante viagem absolutamente turística e curta, portanto, sem finalidades militantes, embora nunca se consiga fugir do dever. Nesta casa onde viveu o camarada Lev Bronstein, cujo nome de guerra era León Trotsky. O centro de memória funciona neste local no tradicional bairro Coyoacán, e tem como entidade cobertura o Instituto de Direito de Asilo e segundo me informaram no local, trata-se de uma instituição coordenada pelos familiares descendentes do ex-comandante do Exército Bolchevique. read full story / add a comment

Introdução: Para refletir. No excelente Museu Nacional de História do México há uma série de murais representando a Revolução Mexicana com os sindicatos organizados com bandeiras vermelhas e negras além de estandartes do mutualismo. Tem referências soltas a Ricardo Flores Magón e seu irmão Enrique, nada de Praxedes Guerrero e em nenhum momento o termo anarquista ou anarquismo é citado. Nos murais de Diego Rivera e alguns de seus amigos e aliados estalinistas vez por outra incluem uma foice e martelo sendo que o Partido Comunista Mexicano (PCM) foi criado após a Revolução. A curadoria do Museu e do INAH – Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e História, o órgão gestor – foi cúmplice da mentira da historiografia marxista e seus aliados priistas. Nesta curta série de três textos tem para todo mundo. Logo, não se empolguem amigos e amigas da 4a Internacional. Na casa museu de Trotsky, também sobra inverdade e omissão histórica. read full story / add a comment

Extracts from anarchist-communist Emma Goldman's classic analysis, as presented in her 1924 "My Further Disillusionment with Russia." Goldman argued clearly that the Russian Revolution's end, in a new one-party dictatorship and new elite ruling a highly unequal society, could not be excused as a simple degeneration caused by external pressures of imperialist intervention and economic crisis (the view of defenders of the Communist Party). It also could not be explained as the inevitable result of class-based revolution that overthrew parliament and private property (the view of liberals). The programme and actions of the Communist Party, based on building a centralised state run by a single centralised party and repression, crushed democratic bottom-up proletarian and peasant initiative and self-management, worsened the economic situation, and destroyed the revolution from within. The revolution itself was actually very democratic and egalitarian, not by its nature dictatorial, and this placed it in a fatal struggle with Bolshevik / Communist rule. Revolution, to succeed, needs a total "transvaluation" of values to a "libertarian spirit" that rejects authoritarianism, and bottom-up "economic" mobilisation of the masses through steps like anarcho-syndicalism and co-operatives, that place decisions in the hands of the grassroots masses. "Means" must match "ends," and ethics and action must always be consistently based on libertarian, just principles: "Today is the parent of tomorrow. " read full story / add a comment

Powerful address by the Mexican anarchist-communist revolutionary, Enrique Flores Magon, brother to fellow anarchist-communist militants Jesus and Ricardo Flores Magon. This address was given to a US court, defending the brothers' fight for "the emancipation of the downtrodden, particularly of the Mexican proletarians, and of the disinherited all over the world in general." It defends the then-ongoing Mexican Revolution against imperialism and capitalism, argues for anarchist-communism, and makes an internationalist appeal to the American working class for joint struggle against tyrants and exploiters, stressing common class realities.

The brothers Enrique and Ricardo Flores Magon were at the time in exile, in the USA, conducting revolutionary work. They were arrested several times, this speech being given during the trial that followed their arrest in 1916 for distributing "indecent materials" (both were found guilty). Ricardo was again arrested in 1918 for sedition, given 20 years, and died in a US prison in 1922. Enrique was released in 1923 and returned to Mexico.

El siguiente folleto es parte del intento de recuperación de la memoria histórica que en anarkismo.net hemos venido realizando sobre el anarquismo en el Lejano Oriente, particularmente en China, Japón y Corea. Este folleto, trata de uno de los momentos más traumáticos en la historia del movimiento libertario nipón: la ejecución de 12 anarquistas, en 1911, en un caso conocido como "el caso de Alta Traición". Entre las víctimas de esta ejecución masiva, estaba el anarquista japonés Kôtoku Shûsui, dinamizador del movimiento obrero y uno de los fundadores del movimiento libertario en el Japón. Los anarquistas fueron acusados de haber complotado para asesinar al Emperador Meiji (cuyo nombre real era Mutsuhito). Este emperador había presidido la notable modernización autoritaria del país, que en algunas décadas, se convirtió en una potencia industrial y un país capitalista de avanzada, a la vez que se mantenían formas arcaicas de Estado, un imperio donde el emperador era a la vez Dios. Eso convertía a cualquier forma de disidencia en una blasfemia y un acto contra la deidad. El precio de esta modernización autoritaria, se pagó en sangre por parte del campesinado y los obreros japoneses. Dentro de esa transición y acentuación de la explotación de las masas populares, es que surgió el movimiento socialista y el anarquismo en el Japón. Este documento, retrata la lucha titánica librada por un puñado de mujeres y hombres que en esas condiciones totalmente adversas, libraron una batalla frontal en contra del Dios-Emperador y la opresión inimaginable sufrida por las clases populares. Tras su ejecución, el mensaje de estos revolucionarios, se convirtió en un movimiento que enfrentó heroicamente la arremetida reaccionaria que, eventualmente, llevó al Japón a convertirse en un país fascista y de un imperialismo extraordinariamente agresivo. Este artículo, se suma a uno anterior sobre este mismo caso de “Alta Traición”, escrito por Hippolyte Havel y publicado en la revista anarquista de EEUU Mother Earth (Vol. V, No. 12, Febrero 1911). Este folleto, hasta ahora solamente disponible en inglés, fue publicado originalmente por la Kate Sharpley Library (K.S.L.) en Londres en 1994 (re-impreso en 2002), y nuevamente republicado por Black Powder Press en el 2009. Ahora lo compartimos por primera vez en castellano. Traducción e introducción:

Συζητάμε εδώ την πολιτική σκέψη του Καμίλλο Μπερνέρι -μιας διάσημης, αλλά και άγνωστης προσωπικότητας στους δικούς μας χρόνους του αγώνα, στη γενιά μας, ειδικά στο Πορτογαλικό κοινό- με σκοπό να δικαιώσουμε τη συμβολή του. Έχουμε έτσι την ανάσυρση από τη σκόνη της λήθης των σκέψεων και των αγώνων αυτού του αξέχαστου αναρχικού συντρόφου, ως συμβολή στον παρόντα πολιτικό λόγο καθώς και ως μια πρόκληση για τις αναρχικές τάσεις. read full story / add a comment

Μια εργασία του Kirwin Shaffer που έχει πάρει τον τίτλο της από το χρώμα της σημαίας των αναρχικών και το νησί όπου οργανώθηκαν οι ριζοσπάστες: το Πουέρτο Ρίκο. Η μαύρη σημαία συμβολίζει την αλληλεγγύη με "εκείνους που έχουν υποφέρει τη μεγαλύτερη κακοποίηση από το κράτος, το κεφάλαιο και τη θρησκεία”.

Στις 4 τα ξημερώματα της 20ης Νοέμβρη του 1936 σταμάτησε να χτυπά η καρδιά του Μπουεναβεντούρα Ντουρούτι. Είχε τραυματιστεί θανάσιμα την προηγούμενη μέρα, το μεσημέρι, στην πρώτη γραμμή του μετώπου της Μαδρίτης. Στο πέρασμα του χρόνου, γράφτηκαν πολλές εικασίες για τις ακριβείς συνθήκες του θανάτου του. Πιθανότερη όλων είναι η εκδοχή του ατυχήματος, όταν το αυτόματο που κουβαλούσε ο Ντουρούτι ή ο συνοδός του, Μανθάνα, εκπυρσοκρότησε βρίσκοντας στο έδαφος.
