north america / mexico / crime prison and punishment / policy statement Sunday May 11, 2014 13:09 by M. Cinelli
We stand in solidarity with Cecily McMillan and will in the future. Cecily has been punished in order to make an example out of the Occupy movement. At the same time we must look at the bigger picture. By the end of today, another life, activist or not, will have been snuffed out by state violence. These include attacks against active militants involved in the struggle for liberation of oppressed peoples like Mumia Abu-Jamal, Maroon Shoatz and Leonard Peltier, as well as everyday people of color and undocumented migrants struggling to survive against the racist class divisions perpetuated by capitalism. There have been 239 people killed by the NYPD since Amadou Diallo in 1999, and 107 since Sean Bell in 2010; nearly all of them have been people of color. While we see that Cecily is a political prisoner, we recognize that the black and brown men and women who are systematically beaten on the street and thrown into prisons are political by default. Having historically been the most exploited of the exploited class, their well-being, survival and resistance to the widening gap between classes poses a threat to the capitalist status quo that the state seeks to insure. read full story / add a comment

Anarchism and the philosophy of pragmatism can add to each other. Pragmatism is explained as a philosophy of active experience and experimental naturalism. Pragmatism advocates radical, decentrlized democracy and industrial self-management, which is very close to anarchism. However pragmatists have often opposed reformist perspectives to revolution. The case for revolution is presented. read full story / add a comment

north america / mexico / workplace struggles / news report Sunday March 16, 2014 21:08 by Jake Carman
Picket lines have returned to Insomnia Cookies, less than two weeks after the company settled with four workers who struck in August of 2013. On Friday March 14, two dozen union members and supporters rallied in front of the Boston location of Insomnia Cookies, demanding the reinstatement with back pay of union organizer and bicycle delivery “driver,” Tasia Edmonds. On March 9 the company suspended Edmonds without pay for a month, alleging insubordination, while the union maintains she was disciplined for her union-building efforts. read full story / add a comment

This is an interesting interview with our comrade Miriam (M1 Detroit) on her history of “Industrialization” with her organization at the time the Revolutionary Socialist League. “Industrialization” was the term that the Left used to describe the strategy of getting mainly University and counter-culture youth activists to commit to point-of-production organizing in factories as part of the working-class. It was different than what is today known as “salting” – as “Industrialization” was not usually seen as a short-term stint around a specific campaign, but rather a long-term commitment to building a revolutionary presence in the class. read full story / add a comment

Ce texte a comme premier objectif de dresser un bilan le plus honnête possible, afin que nous puissions collectivement tirer des apprentissages de cette expérience. Ce bilan est issu d’une réflexion collective des membres actifs du collectif Emma Goldman à l’hiver 2014. Il reflète donc, avant tout chose, la réalité telle que vécue par ceux-ci. read full story / add a comment

Une page est tournée mais l’histoire de l’anarchisme au Québec n’est évidemment pas terminée. Les organisations sont des moyens et non des fins. Les personnes qui ont fait l’UCL continuent de s’impliquer dans plusieurs projets libertaires, dont les éditions Ruptures et le Collectif Emma-Goldman qui poursuit sur sa lancée. read full story / add a comment

Dates: Jan 21 - 25

Chile has a long history of working class struggle in shanty towns, factories, mines, community organizations, and schools. In the 20 years after the US supported coup which overthrew Salvador Allende’s government, much of the organizing was done underground. However after the fall of the dictatorship in 1990, there was a new rise of mass popular organization in the country. Anarchists have been a major force in the social movements, strategically organizing to build power. This has manifested in solidarity for the Mapuches, anarchists winning the student union elections at the University of Chile, militant pro-abortion actions, and libertarian labor organizations.

This national tour brings three individuals involved in these struggles to talk about the lessons learned and to create solidarity across hemispheres. From January to the end of February, the speakers will be traveling throughout the country and we hope that you can spread the word and hear about the important work that is happening in Chile. read full story / add a comment

This essay is slightly expanded from one which was rejected by a US anarchist magazine for political reasons. It deals with a disagreement among activists: Should we propose that the movement raise a program of demands? I think that anarchists should, but with a more libertarian-democratic version than the liberals and state socialists. The essay is followed by a response to the political points raised by the editors of the anarchist journal. read full story / add a comment

américa del norte / méxico / crime prison and punishment / entrevista Wednesday December 04, 2013 23:57 by Brenda Aguilar   image 1 image
Victoria Law es una fotógrafa, escritora y activista y madre. Involucrada en la lucha anticarcelaria desde 1996 coadyuvando en el éxito de iniciativas como Books Through Bars-New York City (Libros a través de las rejas-NY) un grupo que manda gratuitamente libros a presxs a nivel nacional en los Estados Unidos.

Desde el 2000, empezó a concentrarse en las necesidades que la lucha de las mujeres en prisiones requería, coeditando libros como Tenacious: Art and Writings in Prison (Tenaz: Arte y escritura en las prisiones) y facilitando que la escritura de mujeres encarceladas pueda ser leída fuera de las rejas, entre otros proyectos editoriales del mismo tipo. También publicó un libro titulado Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women (Resistencia tras las rejas: las luchas de las mujeres encarceladas, PM Press, 2009) y ganó el Premio PASS el 2009 (Prevention for a Safer Society, Prevención para una sociedad más Segura) otorgadio por el Consejo Nacional del Crimen y la Delincuencia.

En 1995 se involucró con ABC No Rio, un colectivo que administra un centro cultura en la parte sur del lado Este de Manhattan. Organizó, también, un grupo de fotógrafos activistas dentro de este mismo espacio, y desde entonces mantiene y coordina diferentes proyectos comunitarios destinados a jóvenes (exhibiciones, clases, etc).

En el 2003 colaboró con China Martens y crearon "Don't Leave Your Friends Behind," (No dejes a tu amigxs atrás), un taller que abordó las necesidades específicas de padres, madres y niñxs en los movimientos sociales radicales. Esta es una pequeña introducción de Victoria, que seguramente al resumir no hace justicia a la importante labor a la que ha estado dedicada. Regeneración Radio tuvo la oportunidad de entablar una pequeña charla que reproducimos a continuación.

As we engage in larger social movements, it can be easy to lose sight of our endgame and essentially function as a type of "social democrat." Here are some key reasons and methods for avoiding this, as well as countering the progressive election logic during voting season. read full story / add a comment
