Lo de Monedero no es crítica: es la repetición ad nauseam de todos los lugares comunes y vulgaridades intelectuales de un Aznar respecto a la cuestión vasca y la sacrosanta “lucha contra el terrorismo”. Monedero, como buen españolista, ha interiorizado todo ese rosario y lo reproduce, paradójicamente, en defensa de un sector de la izquierda. Su artículo apela a los mismos elementos emotivos que ha agitado la derecha del PP durante décadas, y busca ingenuamente que ese sector de la opinión pública española se solidarice con el pueblo venezolano por ese dolor compartido por el “terrorismo” –el de ETA en un caso, el de las guarimbas en el otro. read full story / add a comment

Will the United Front (UF) address the crises we are currently facing in South Africa? I am concerned about how the UF works and who leads it. In my own view we don’t need a leader, we need to all have equal voice. How can we build the UF as a basis for a stateless, socialist, South Africa? read full story / add a comment
italia / svizzera / la sinistra / opinione / analisi Monday August 31, 2015 23:48 by donato romito
Ma c'è vita a sinistra se questa vive sta nel conflitto sociale diffuso e reticolare, sistematico e costante, in grado di esprimere crescente radicalità dal basso, indirizzata verso la riappropriazione e l'autogestione di risorse comuni, patrimoniali e ambientali, culturali ed economiche, che sa proporsi come elemento esogeno di rottura democratica e libertaria di netto segno anticapitalista, nei territori e nel paese. read full story / add a comment

Premetto subito che mi piacerebbe assistere al risveglio di una dialettica democratica in questa comunità. (...) All'uopo potrebbe servire Facebook. In un recente passato, ho già avuto occasione di annotare che il limite oggettivo di questo spazio virtuale di confronto e di partecipazione politica, è insito nel mezzo stesso di comunicazione, attualmente circoscritto ad una cerchia ancora elitaria di cittadini che utilizzano abitualmente Internet ed i social network. Comunque, ben venga lo strumento del web in soccorso alla libertà di espressione e di critica, dunque alla convivenza democratica e civile. Invito chiunque ad afferrare il senso di una questione estremamente delicata qual è, appunto, l'istanza o la rivendicazione di una maggiore partecipazione collegiale e democratica proveniente dal basso, vale a dire da settori consistenti della cittadinanza (...), che non deve scadere in futili pretesti per scatenare sterili o rissose polemiche personali.

Syriza’s rise to power elicited widespread praise from the left internationally, inspiring renewed enthusiasm for the possibilities and promise of “mass left” party building in and outside the United States. At a rally celebrating Syriza’s electoral victory in Spain, Pablo Iglesias, secretary general of the Spanish anti-austerity party Podemos, declared that “the sun of hope rose over Greece.”

Yet “the sun of hope” began to set on Greece almost as quickly as it rose. Shortly after taking office, Syriza, the “Coalition of the Radical Left,” formed a coalition government with the right-wing, anti-immigrant Independent Greeks (ANEL) party, followed only months later by the predictable surrender of the government to a new round of harsh austerity imposed by Greece’s creditors. read full story / add a comment

Όσο βαθύτερα ερευνούμε τις επιδράσεις της εξουσιαστικής πολιτικής μέσα στην ιστορία, τόσο περισσότερο καταλήγουμε να είμαστε πεπεισμένοι ότι η "Βούληση για εξουσία" έχει υπάρξει μέχρι σήμερα μία από τις ισχυρότερες κινητήριες δυνάμεις στην ανάπτυξη των μορφών των ανθρώπινων κοινωνιών. Η ιδέα ότι όλα τα πολιτικά και κοινωνικά γεγονότα δεν είναι τίποτε άλλο παρά το αποτέλεσμα των δεδομένων οικονομικών συνθηκών και ότι είναι εξηγήσιμα μέσω αυτών δεν μπορεί να αντέξει μπροστά σε μία προσεκτική εξέταση. Το γεγονός ότι οι οικονομικές συνθήκες και οι ιδιαίτερες μορφές της κοινωνικής παραγωγής έχουν διαδραματίσει ένα ρόλο στην εξέλιξη της ανθρωπότητας αναγνωρίζεται από όλους όσους έχουν προσπαθήσει να κατανοήσουν εις βάθος τα διάφορα κοινωνικά φαινόμενα. read full story / add a comment

Once again the radical left petite bourgeoisie has failed.
This is not particular to Greece. It is a general tendency of struggles in many other social formations as well, wherever the petite bourgeoisie instead of the working class is leading the struggle. One lesson to learn is that whenever we persist in hoping that something positive will come from petite bourgeois leadership, however radical they might seem, THE RESULT WILL BE THE SAME: A TOTAL CAPITULATION TO CAPITAL.

Το απόσπασμα που ακολουθεί είναι από την ιστορική μπροσούρα «Αναρχία» του γεωγράφου και αναρχικού Ελιζέ Ρεκλύ(1830-1905). Ο Ρεκλύ υπήρξε από τους σημαντικότερους γεωγράφους του καιρού του όσο και εμβληματική φυσιογνωμία του αναρχικού κινήματος και σύντροφος του Κροπότκιν, ασκώντας μεγάλη επιρροή στους κύκλους των αναρχικών σε όλο τον κόσμο. read full story / add a comment

Η παρέμβαση αυτή αφιερώνεται πρωτίστως στους αναρχικούς/ες και τους αναρχίζοντες που μας έπρηξαν από το τον Γενάρη προτείνοντας άλλοι άμεσα και άλλοι έμμεσα ότι πρέπει εμείς οι αναρχικοί να ξεκολλήσουμε από ιδεολογικές αγκυλώσεις και ιδεοληψίες και να ψηφίσουμε αριστερά ως μια προοπτική υπέρβασης της συγκυρίας, (αυταρχική δεξιά κυβέρνηση, επέλαση του νεοφιλελευθερισμού κλπ). Επίσης αφιερώνεται στους αριστερούς /ες που τώρα κλαίνε σαν μωρές παρθένες (ποιητική αδεία ας μην μου την πέσουν οι φεμινίστριες). Δεν θα κάνω ανάλυση των μέτρων του νέου μνημονίου ή μια γενικότερη οικονομική ανάλυση και περί νομισματικής πολιτικής (όχι ότι δεν δύναμαι) άλλα θέλω χωρίς μακρηγορίες να σταθώ σε δυο τρία ζητήματα κόντρα και ενάντια στον οικονομισμό. read full story / add a comment

Did those who are already raising Lenin from his tomb to render quick judgement on Syriza's abject “world-historic defeat” (without saying much about what victory would look like or require) actually bother to read the rather similar plans that Syriza put forward before the referendum and that were consistently rejected by the EU and IMF “Institutions”? This rejection is what the referendum was about. The resounding OXI was then used by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to secure the resignation of the leading political representative of the domestic ruling class (and former Prime Minister), Antonis Samaras, and to get all the party leaders with any such claim or ambitions to speak for that class to adopt Syriza's position on the need for debt restructuring and investment funds. One might even say that if there was a class crossover involved here it was the other way around, one that looks more like what Gramsci meant by a hegemonic strategy rather than the way it is presented from the perspective of those standing on Lenin's Tomb. read full story / add a comment

Così finalmente, nonostante tutti i meandri, le vie laterali e le deviazioni della storia, la logica delle lotte sociali ha finalmente impresso la sua impronta sulla politica della Turchia. La clamorosa sconfitta di Recep Tayyip Erdogan e del suo Akp alle urne nelle elezioni generali del 7 giugno in Turchia, mette allo scoperto una perdita di peso politico da parte di Erdogan a seguito dei successivi rovesci che ha subito negli ultimi due anni da parte delle masse e, in parte, dai suoi alleati di un tempo.

So at long last, despite all the meanders and sideways and detours of history, the logic of social struggles has finally put its stamp on the politics of Turkey. The resounding defeat of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AKP at the polls in the 7th June general elections in Turkey brings out into the open a loss of political clout on the part of Erdogan as a result of the successive blows he received in the last two years at the hands of the masses and, partly, his erstwhile partners.

Istvan Meszaros, a well-known Marxist theorist, has material which can be interesting to anarchists. He has an insightful analysis of the current stage of capitalism and the state. He makes Marx's "withering away of the state" central to his program, and he rejects electoral party politics. But paradoxically, he also supports the late Hugo Chavez's attempted use of the Venezuelan state to move to socialism. How can we understand this and respond to it? read full story / add a comment

Revolutions are seldom made in favourable circumstances.  Russia 1917 emerged from the mass slaughter of WWI and the disintegration of an economy under the pressure of the supply demands of that war.  Spain 1936 emerged from a well planned and executed fascist coup amongst a powerful military backed and armed by international fascism.  Schemas for revolution that depend on quiet times and plenty may well be doomed from the start. read full story / add a comment

In 2005, the Partiya Karkêren Kurdistani (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) (PKK) announced that it considered the nation-state a hindrance on the road to freedom, and that its strategic objective was not the establishment of a state but of an interlinked network of councils as the basis of self-determination and a new way of living together. The objective of this article is to discuss and explain the PKK’s understanding of politics as it evolved in the 2000s by looking at two concepts: ‘democratic autonomy’ and ‘democratic confederalism.’ This article will put these concepts in a historical and comparative perspective, and contextualise them in wider discussions in political and social sciences. The question central to this contribution is how these concepts make sense in the context of political theory, and how they have the potential to address fundamental shortcomings in modern democracy. Data has been collected by the study of primary sources and interviews. read full story / add a comment

Se fue el escritor uruguayo Eduardo Galeano. read full story / add a comment

In the open­ing salvos of Latin America’s uneven lurch to the Left in the early twenty-first cen­tury, Bolivia dis­tin­guished itself as the region’s most rad­i­cal socio-political ter­rain.1 Left-indigenous move­ments in the coun­try­side and cityscapes alike threw the state into cri­sis and brought two suc­ces­sive neolib­eral pres­i­dents to their knees – Gon­zalo Sánchez de Lozada in 2003, and Car­los Mesa in 2005.2 Evo Morales’s party, the Movimiento al Social­ismo (Move­ment Towards Social­ism, MAS), leapt into the power vac­uum opened up by this series of revolts, and there has been seri­ous debate on the Left as to how best to but­ton down the cen­tral polit­i­cal dynamic of the coun­try ever since. In a coun­try where 62 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion self-identified as indige­nous in the 2001 cen­sus, Morales became the first indige­nous pres­i­dent through the Decem­ber 2005 elec­tions with 54 per­cent of the pop­u­lar vote, assum­ing office in Jan­u­ary 2006. He repeated this extra­or­di­nary elec­toral suc­cess in Decem­ber 2009, with 64 per­cent, and again in Octo­ber 2014, with 61 percent. read full story / add a comment
