There are non-anarchist radicals who advocate creating a new, third, party, to replace the Democrats at least. They share many of the values of anarchists. However anarchists regard this as a mistaken strategy. read full story / add a comment

Review of Frank's "Listen, Liberal." A leading liberal journalist, he exposes the Democratic Party as dominated by a section of the capitalist class, namely the top of the professional-managerial sector. He demonstrates its acceptance of inequality and its rejection of the working class. read full story / add a comment

Εδώ και αρκετό καιρό, στη νότια πολιτεία του Μεξικού, Οαχάκα, διεξάγεται από τους εκπαιδευτικούς και τους φοιτητές, ένας σκληρός και ανένδοτος αγώνας αμφισβήτησης των κυβερνητικών μεταρρυθμίσεων στην παιδεία και της νέας διαδικασίας αξιολόγησης και πρόσληψης δασκάλων. Αυτές οι μεταρρυθμίσεις είναι κομμάτι της ριζικής αναμόρφωσης του εκπαιδευτικού συστήματος που επιχειρείται την τελευταία δεκαετία στο Μεξικό και στόχο έχει την κατάργηση του δημόσιου χαρακτήρα της εκπαίδευσης. read full story / add a comment

El atentado de Orlando, estado de Florida (EEUU), realizado en la madrugada de domingo, 12 de junio, congrega lo que de peor tenemos hoy en términos de amenaza visible para la idea de democracia de masas. La acción terrorista y de crimen de odio aproxima extremos sectarios, generando tanto una onda de islamofobia así como visibilidad de la homofobia en escala de pavor societario. read full story / add a comment
Embora ataques com armas automáticas sejam um fenômeno regular nos EUA, o atentado contra a Pulse, atingindo majoritariamente latino-americanos e descendentes vivendo em Orlando e região, foi o pior massacre doméstico desde o 11 de setembro de 2001.

O atentado de Orlando, Florida, realizado na madrugada de domingo, 12 de junho, congrega o que de pior temos hoje em termos de ameaça visível para a ideia de democracia de massas. A ação terrorista e de crime de ódio aproxima extremos sectários, atiçando tanto uma onda de islamofobia assim como visibilidade da homofobia em escala de pavor societário. Também caracteriza um momento onde a política interna dos Estados Unidos consegue se mundializar, através de redes cibernéticas, efeitos virais e de lealdades ideológicas onde a América Latina reproduz, pela via de elites econômicas e midiáticas pautadas pelo viralatismo, as piores clivagens da direita republicana, dos ultra liberais e neoconservadores orientados pelo crivo religioso.

Hace poco hace 97 años (el 10 de Abril), moría Emiliano Zapata tras ser manipulado y engañado para ser abatido en una emboscada donde ni siquiera se encontraba preparado por las fuerzas estatales. Un militante, un revolucionario social que hasta el último día de vida luchó por la transformación total de la sociedad de forma conjunta con el pueblo, para alcanzar la verdadera justicia social. Zapata ,si bien nunca se definió o se tuvo conocimiento de un conciencia deliberadamente anarquista, su praxis y su lucha por la Tierra y la Libertad, son evidentemente una praxis libertaria. Además, es claro que se agrupó durante el periodo de la revolución mexicana, con gran cantidad de individuos libertarios, que variaban desde militantes del Partido Liberal Mexicano, durante su periodo comunista libertario, cuando había una enorme influencia magonista; hasta otras organizaciones como fueron las feministas libertarias, Las Hijas de Anahuac. Estos y muchos otros individuos que compartieron experiencias, charlas y luchas con Zapata fueron configurando en él, así no fuera con un discurso explícitamente anarquista, al Zapata que vendría a ser reconocido con el máxime: “La tierra es de quien la trabaja.” read full story / add a comment

There is a new approach on the U.S. Left, which rejects both capitalism and state socialism. In several ways it resembles anarchism. It has been promoted by The Next System Project, and has been critiqued recently by Sam Gindin--who makes some insightful comments, but also demonstrates limitations. 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

In recent decades, there have been efforts to "rehabilitate" the U.S. Communist Party as an historical model for the Left. Anti-authoritarian socialists and anarchists find this troubling. Whle the CP did some good things it also did some very bad things. A brief summary of its history demonstrates that and explains why this is. read full story / add a comment
No Museu Nacional de História não havia uma representação ilustrativa dos militantes anarquistas citados e tampouco o programa do Partido Liberal Mexicano (PLM).

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

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.

north america / mexico / crime prison and punishment / non-anarchist press Wednesday January 13, 2016 23:20 by Lesley J. Wood
After the killing of Michael Brown in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri in the late summer of 2014, protests erupted, and the Black Lives Matter spread across North America to protest police violence, too often systematically directed at poor and racialized communities. The massive police presence at these protests, with weapons and armoured vehicles that looked and felt like major military deployments, made it clear to all that something fundamental had taken place in policing practices and strategies. The intensification and extension of the coercive and security branches of the state was well-known since the declaration of the ‘war on terror’ in 2001, and the subsequent leaks of official documents by Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and others. The hardening of the state in its day-to-day operations at the most local levels could now be seen everywhere by all, in an increasing confrontation with the democratic rights of assembly and protest.

Lesley Wood's recent book, Crisis and Control: The Militarization of Protest Policing (2014), locates these developments in a longer term perspective in relation to the spread of neoliberalism. Analyzing police agencies, strategies and practices from the mid-1990s to the present, she identifies a range of the structural and political forces that have led to the militarization of policing, particularly in North America, but also in trends that extend to Europe. This involves detailing a new matrix in the relations between the security, national police and defence apparatuses of the state with local police forces and the defence and security industries. Professional police associations and their various conferences and conventions have become important nodes for the spread of ‘best-practice policing’, in the form of kettling, barricading, infiltration and pre-emptive arrests, usage of new anti-protest weaponry, security screening, local intelligence-gathering capacities and the like. But also as sites where the case is made for an increase in police budgets, more capital intensification of policing and thus for accumulation by the ‘coercive’ industries (which define modern urbanism as much as the so-called ‘creative’ sector).

In a period of sharpening inequality, permanent neoliberal austerity, and hard right forces gaining ground, the logic for a further militarization of policing, securitizing of cities, and curtailing and limiting protests. In her book, Wood seeks not only to map these developments in North America through time, but also to expose the contradictions in the new forms of policing in capitalist states, and begin to pose how social and anti-capitalist movements will have to respond to ‘demilitarize our relations’.
