Introdução deste cenário complexo

O relatório na CCJ terminou reprovado por 40 a 25, com o governo emplacando o substitutivo por placar de 41 a 24. Considerando que o Jaburu trocou 20 membros ao longo da montagem da Comissão para apreciar a denúncia, então está parelha a coisa em plenário. Assim, durante o curto recesso do Congresso nesta segunda quinzena de julho, observamos as manobras de aproximação e afastamento entre Michel Temer e o deputado federal Rodrigo Maia (DEM/RJ). Simultaneamente, o racha da direita aumenta, com a base de Temer apontando as baterias contra a Globo e apoiando, tacitamente, a correta ofensiva da Record. No caminho inverso, o ex-secretário de Segurança de Quércia e Fleury Filho, é o alvo permanente da emissora líder. As razões – ou as possíveis motivações – constam de tese desenvolvida por Luis Nassif, a qual este analista corrobora. O alvo simultâneo do telejornalismo em rede nacional, aborda tanto o ex-presidente Lula e a condenação sem provas cabais por Sérgio Moro, como termina fazendo discurso de apoio às leis regressivas e retirada de direitos através da contrarreforma ou restauração burguesa levadas a cabo no Brasil pós-golpe. São rodadas múltiplas de um cenário que ultrapassa o binarismo.

Το κυπριακό (όπως και το παλαιστινιακό) ως προσπάθεια επίλυσης -δια της διχοτόμησης- που επιχειρούν οι ΗΠΑ και που προσκρούουν στις υπερβολικές απαιτήσεις της τοπικής υπερδύναμης, Τουρκίας, παραμένει ένας σίγουρος χώρος για τη διευθέτηση των αμερικανικών συμφερόντων και μάλιστα κατόπιν εδραίωσης της παρουσίας του ΝΑΤΟ «για το προσφυγικό» μετά την άθλια συμφωνία ΕΕ-Τουρκίας, με τον ελλαδικό παράγοντα να υπακούει στην αμερικανική πολιτική και να επεκτείνει την πολιτκή αυτή στη συμμαχία με την Κύπρο, την Αίγυπτο και το Ισραήλ. read full story / add a comment

The outraged media reaction to a jury doing its job and finding the Jobstown defendants not guilty is quite extraordinary. Rather than do the right thing and launch an investigation as to how 180 cops could produce evidence that was directly contradicted by video evidence, the media have gone on a rant against Twitter! Rather than finding it suspicious that nearly 3 million in public funds was spent by the DPP on a case that any proper check of available evidence should have indicated was never likely to convince a jury, the media suggest instead that the problem lay in the exact charges brought. The trial was part of a large scale state operation to suppress a mass anti-austerity community campaign. read full story / add a comment

A libertarian Marxist friend sent me a reference to a report on an international gathering of “National Anarchists.” It appeared in Keith Preston’s site, “Attack the System,” at https://attackthesystem.com/2017/07/10/national-anarchi...47073

This is my response.

Era la mañana del pasado 28 de junio, tractores del ingenio cañero del terrateniente Álvaro Saa se preparaban para efectuar un desalojo violento contra las comunidades liberadoras de la madre tierra asentadas en la finca García Abajo en Corinto, Cauca. Como no podía ser de otra manera, la escolta de dicha maquinaria estaba compuesta de forma mixta entre la vigilancia privada (que actúa básicamente como grupos paramilitares, que entre otras cosas, asesinaron en abril pasado a Javier Oteca a escasos cientos de metros de donde se efectuaba el actual desalojo) y la fuerza pública, acostumbrada ya a actuar junto a civiles encapuchados y con la mayor sevicia del mundo. Esta violenta alianza entre los elementos legales y civiles recuerdan las peores épocas de las llamadas convivir, no solo porque civiles armados con escopetas y pistolas disparan a la población civil frente a los ojos de la policía y el ejército como si nada, sino porque la fuerza militar ha encontrado un nuevo nido de odio dentro del conflicto de tierras que vive actualmente el norte del cauca, creando nuevos enemigos públicos que mantengan el orden del miedo del que no solo se alimenta el uribismo, sino también el peor del neoliberalismo de la pax romana santista. read full story / add a comment

There has recently been controversy on the Left over "free speech" for right-wingers (not necessarily fascists). Should it be supported or physically opposed? Some leftists have revived interest in the ideas of Herbert Marcuse on "repressive tolerance" and why it should be opposed. Marcuse's theory is reviewed and arguments are raised against it from a revolutionary anti-authoritarian perspective. read full story / add a comment
north america / mexico / anarchist movement / opinion / analysis Thursday July 06, 2017 04:47 by David Van Deusen/Lady/Black Heart Anarchist Collective
"The Road Not Taken" is a historic proposal that was provided to the Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives (FRAC) from the Black Heart Anarchist Collective-Columbus Ohio in 2001. Previous to now this proposal was treated as an internal FRAC document and has never been made available online or to the public. Ultimately the proposal was not adopted by FRAC. It is being provided now as it shows some of the internal debate and discussions that were taking place in the anarchist movement shortly after The Battle of Seattle. The document also highlights one road that aspects of the anarchist movement viewed as open to it, even if this road was never taken. Now that we are struggling against an increasing fascist tendency in the U.S. and beyond [2017], we as a movement need to explore those crossroads that post-Seattle presented us, and re-evaluate the strategic and tactical directions the movement took then in order for us in the present to build a stronger more effective movement today.

This proposal was provided to the still forming Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives (Great Lakes Region-Midwest) in December, 2001 by the Black Heart Anarchist Collective (Columbus, Ohio). It was not adopted by the federation. It was also sent to the Northeast Federation of Anarcho Communists. David Van Deusen wrote this document with Lady. The proposal was adopted as a position by the Black Heart Anarchist Collective as a whole, whose members also had input into the content. The Black Heart Anarchist Collective was an offshoot of Anti-Racist Action-Columbus. The collective (which included Van Deusen, Lady, Dustin, Noah, and others) formed for the primary purpose of engaging in discussions with other regional anarchist collectives about forming the Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives. The Black Heart Anarchist Collective were participants in a number of meetings leading up to the creation of the federation. However, prior to the official formation of the federation Van Deusen & Lady moved back to Vermont, the collective disbanded, and was never an official member collective of the federation. Van Deusen (who co-founded The Green Mountain Anarchist Collective) was in Ohio, and a member of Anti-Racist Action, for some time in 2001-2002. The Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives folded in 2005.

… Γιατί το εκπληκτικό που συμβαίνει τούτη τη στιγμή (τουλάχιστον μετά το 1991), είναι ότι αυτή η παραγωγή ηγεμονικής ιδεολογίας, με ό,τι κανονικά σήμαινε ο όρος, έχει στερέψει! Καμία απόπειρα έλλογης δικαιολόγησης των αποφάσεων που διακυβεύουν τον κόσμο μας δεν ηχεί πλέον πειστική, και οι ίδιοι οι κρατούντες μοιάζουν να έχουν παραιτηθεί από κάθε προσπάθεια συγκάλυψης της ωμής, απερίφραστης και προκλητικά αυθαίρετης ισχύος: οτιδήποτε λέγεται από επίσημα χείλη έχει τον βαθμό λογικής συνέπειας του προλεχθέντος ανεκδότου, και από κανέναν δεν αναμένεται να παρθεί στα σοβαρά. read full story / add a comment

Δεν χρειάζεται να είμαστε αφελείς (και με αυτό αναφέρομαι στο δεύτερο στοιχείο). Η διαδικασία της εκλογής μέσα από τους παραδοσιακούς τρόπους μπορεί να χρησιμοποιηθεί για τις ιδιοτελείς φιλοδοξίες των οργανώσεων ή των αντιπροσώπων. Αλλά πρέπει να υπάρχει μια σταθερή και συνειδητή άσκηση εντός της κοινότητας ώστε να διασφαλήσουν το σύστημά τους από τις φιλοδοξίες για την εξουσία. Ας αποφάσεις να πέρνονται από τη βάση! Αλληλεγγύη με τις κοινότητες των Ayutla de los Libres στην πορεία τους προς την αυτονομία! Guerrero για τους ανθρώπους! read full story / add a comment

Οι μπαρουτοκαπνισμένοι διαφωνούντες του χτες, όπως ο Χάβελ ή ο Βαλέσα, μεταμορφώθηκαν σε ονειροπόλους έφηβους, ερωτοχτυπημένους με τον καπιταλισμό, ή διαφορετικά, σε έμμισθους απολογητές της καπιταλιστικής θηριωδίας.viii Ωστόσο, αυτό είναι και το κριτήριο αποφασιστικής σημασίας σύμφωνα με το οποίο προσμετράται ο θεωρητικός πλούτος και η ιδεολογική συνέπεια που διακρίνει κάθε ρεύμα κοινωνικοπολιτικής αμφισβήτησης. Αν δηλαδή αφήνει πίσω του αντιεξουσιαστικές παρακαταθήκες, ή αν μεταμορφώνεται κι αυτό με την σειρά του σε έναν καινούριο λόγο εξουσίας.

There seems to be a trend among indigenous communities of increasing vindication of their right to choose their own representatives, rejecting the model of “voting a representative and hoping they deliver what they promised” and instead using their traditional methods to solve the quotidien problems they face. How can they ask a suit-and-tie politician to solve the problems of peasants if their hands are more accustomed to handle paperwork than plowing the ground? read full story / add a comment

Alle organizzazioni politiche anticapitaliste che hanno come orizzonte una società egualitaria fondata sulla libertà non sfuggirà la necessità sempre più pressante di costruire situazioni di cooperazione e di coordinamento per sostenere quelle forze sociali che sono il tessuto reale dell'alternativa di oggi e di domani.
Il comunismo, quello libertario, è sempre all'ordine del giorno. read full story / add a comment

Οι κρατικές πολιτικές καθυπόταξης και άντλησης κέρδους πέφτουν σε τοίχο συναντώντας τις κοινωνικές αντιστάσεις που ορθώνονται εναντίον τους. Τα κινήματα των κατοίκων τέτοιων γειτονιών έχουν αντισταθεί μαζικά και δυναμικά στις όποιες προσπάθειες επιβολής του κεφαλαίου στους χώρους τους και στις γειτονιές τους. Απέναντι στην αποστείρωση αντέτειναν την αλληλεγγύη και την αλληλοβοήθεια. Απέναντι στην εκδούλευση τη συλλογική δράση και τη συλλογική ζωή. Απέναντι στον έλεγχο και την καταστολή την αντίσταση και τον αγώνα. read full story / add a comment

Η εικόνα του τσιγγάνου που πουλάει ναρκωτικά, οπλοφορεί και οδηγάει ακριβά αυτοκίνητα είναι το προτεινόμενο μοντέλο της κοινωνίας του θεάματος για τις γκετοποιημένες περιοχές, το αντεσταρμένο κοινωνικό πρότυπο των παραβατικών που με αυτό τον τρόπο γίνεται ακίνδυνο και ταυτόχρονα προσοδοφόρο. Αυτοί οι τσιγγάνοι είναι πρέζάκια της κοινωνίας του θεάματος. read full story / add a comment

Lo que se viene aquí en nuestro país es un año por demás complicado, pero con lucha. La votación de la Rendición de Cuentas, convertida en un nuevo Presupuesto, marcará la tónica del año. Será esencial que el movimiento popular esté en la calle, reclamando recursos para la enseñanza, la salud, la vivienda, el trabajo y el reparto de tierras para los pobres del campo. Hay que trascender el reclamo de cada sindicato, de cada uno. Hay que intentar coordinar, aunar esfuerzos en la lucha, unir trabajadores y estudiantes, las luchas de la ciudad y el campo, de ir generando espacios de encuentro en la lucha, en el combate cotidiano, en la búsqueda de respuestas, en la construcción de herramientas colectivas.
Ahí estará nuestra militancia. Ahí estará el Anarquismo organizado. En la construcción de un Pueblo Fuerte, combativo y solidario. La historia es de los que luchan, no de los que aflojan.

Corbyn’s strong showing in the June 2017 UK elections has given a big morale boost to the left.  A considerable youth vote, self-mobilising in larger part as a reaction to the ‘me and mine’ selfish society revealed by the Brexit vote seriously set back Tory plans for a fresh wave of Brexit required austerity.  Activists used social networking to overcome what had previously been seen as an all powerful smear machine of the billionaire print press.  Very few outside the radical left expected this outcome, what drove it and more importantly where can it lead?
[ This is a long read so you can also listen to an audio of the text ] This piece is not going to answer that in terms of assumptions and assertions but as far as possible through hard numbers.  66% of 18-24 year old’s voted Labour, only a quarter of that, 18% voted Tory [p4].  27% of those 18-24 year olds said the NHS was the most important issue for them, even though they are least likely to need it [p40].  For the over 65 age group this was flipped, only 23% voted Labour and over twice as many (58%) voted Tory [p4].  In fact, given the way the UK election system works, if only 18-24 year olds had voted, Labour would have been heading for 500 seats.  If it had only been those over 65 voting the Tories would have had over 400 seats. read full story / add a comment

El presente texto se sitúa como un aporte, aunque corto y quizás limitado, a la necesidad que tenemos los sectores antiautoritarios de suplir esta deuda histórica y política que tenemos hace un par de años con las luchas en el país, que son atravesadas por un conflicto social y político que inició hace más de 5 siglos, pero que se materializó con una guerra civil de baja intensidad que lleva carcomiendonos un poco más de 50 años. No ahí que dejarlo de ver este como un aporte personal: muchas compañeras pueden tener su visión, más o menos lejana o cercana, sobre ciertos puntos, pero este texto quiere pretender ser una síntesis subjetiva de, con la mayor de las humildades, una suerte de conversaciones, definiciones y decisiones de quienes hemos venido acumulando desde abajo una nueva alternativa libertaria para estas tierras. read full story / add a comment
