La industria portuaria nacional posee un carácter estratégico para la economía exportadora de Chile, ya que el 95% del comercio exterior pasa necesariamente por los puertos públicos (concesionados) y privados. Por esto, el crecimiento año tras año de esta actividad es casi siempre el doble del Producto Interno Bruto (PIB) y las ganancias de las empresas millonarias. read full story / add a comment

Autonomy, occupation, self-management... these long-forgotten terms are back in Turkey since late 2012-early 2013. There have been several factory occupations since last year. The most prominent ones are, among others, Kazova, Greif, Zentiva, Feniş, Moda Socks Factory, Renault, and Şişecam Topkapı workplace occupations. Although both mainstream media and the trade union bureaucracy try to undermine their significance, recent struggles of the workers necessitate greater scrutiny in the wider political-economic context of Turkey; so the meaning of the occupation as well. read full story / add a comment

Os enviamos un pequeño texto que ESE Atenas ha difundido y repartido en apoyo a la lucha de las aproximadamente seiscientas trabajadoras de la limpieza del Ministerio de Economía, que se encuentran en lucha constante desde hace varios meses tras la decisión del gobierno de despedirlas. Actualmente, las trabajadoras se encuentran en "régimen de reserva laboral" y su despido es inminente. Estamos con ellas y creemos que la difusión de su lucha y las muestras de solidaridad son importantísimas para que puedan seguir adelante. Desde ESE t ambién hemos decidido apoyarlas económicamente, con una pequeña cantidad de nuestro Fondo de Ayuda Mutua, e invitamos a que hagan lo mismo otros sindicatos, colectivos e individualidades, en la medida de sus posibilidades. read full story / add a comment

1. El derecho de huelga es un derecho inalienable de los trabajadores al que no hemos renunciado ni ante las más feroces dictaduras ni ante gobiernos autoritarios seudodemocráticos. Como tal no puede ser “interpretado”, suspendido, recortado, suprimido ni anulado por ningún juez, legislador, ni miembro del poder ejecutivo nacional ni provincial. read full story / add a comment

The trade unions are the combat organisations of the working class. They were built to defend and advance workers' interests against the bosses. BUT the unions can be MUCH more. The unions have the potential not only to fight the bosses in the here and now. They can ALSO organise the workers for a REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL STRIKE. This means that the workers take the land, mines and factories from the bosses and politicians. It means we run them in the interests of the workers and the poor. Real democratic socialism and real working class freedom and power will never come through getting new political parties into parliament. This is an illusion. Parliament is the graveyard of struggles. It is the place where the radicals of yesterday become the crooked politicians of today. Socialism, freedom and power can only come through class struggle. This means organising in communities AND building strong worker organisations. Worker organisations must be built to defeat the bosses, and their ally, the state… and replace them with direct workers control of production. Free of the politicians. Free of the bosses. This is the REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL STRIKE. And this can only come though revolutionary industrial unionism (anarchist syndicalism). Revolutionary unions are vital for replacing the bosses and politicians with a grassroots working class democracy. read full story / add a comment

Sulle macerie della scuola pubblica provocate nel recente passato dai tagli di €8,5 miliardi e di 150.000 posti voluti dal governo Berlusconi/Gelmini, si aggirano nuovi ministri e improbabili sottosegretari a promettere nuove risorse per un progetto culturale e formativo, le cui concrete politiche scolastiche appaiono chiaramente finalizzate alla accelerazione del processo di riconversione della scuola in una fucina di manodopera addestrata a rispondere ai bisogni di un mercato volatile che impone - grazie alla crisi - più aggressive pretese in quanto a "selezione", meritocrazia e finanziamenti a questa finalizzati. read full story / add a comment

Il 17° congresso CGIL ha subito - con la firma dell'accordo del 10 gennaio 2014, a congresso avviato - una radicale modifica. La firma posta dalla segreteria a quell'accordo, la sua ratifica da parte del CDN del 17 gennaio si possono definire un colpo di mano (ovvio che come tutti i colpi di mano c'è un elemento di fondo: la slealtà politica) che scombina e supera le pur diverse posizioni congressuali di partenza. read full story / add a comment

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

La industria de las flores es la marca “distintiva” de la región de la Sabana de Bogotá, tanto por su poderosa capacidad económica como por su campo de influencia en el tejido social y los procesos históricos que se han dado a lo largo de las últimas décadas en este territorio. La familia de la sabana que se enmarca dentro de esta dinámica (directa o indirectamente) reproduce en su seno el cuadro que genera la maquina de la floricultura. En esta misma línea abordaré también aquellas personas que a veces pasan por tangenciales pero que también participan de todo el ramaje que compone esta industria: los jóvenes y los hijos de los trabajadores. Estos serán los objetos de estudio de esta breve ponencia, de su discusión y de propuesta. 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

southern africa / workplace struggles / debate Friday March 07, 2014 05:44 by Lucien van der Walt   image 1 image
Lightly edited transcript from Lucien van der Walt’s discussion at 1st National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) Political School, September 2013. From his debate with Solly Mapaila, 2nd deputy GS of the South African Communist Party (SACP) on anarcho-syndicalist versus Leninist views of the revolutionary potential of unions. A version was printed in ASR #61 2014, pp. 11-20

Captures van der Walt’s main points: the debate on the anarcho-syndicalist view that revolutionary trade unions, allied to other movements, creating a self-managed worker-controlled socialism through mass education, counter-power and workplace occupations; anarcho-syndicalism as a working class tradition; the anarcho-syndicalist view that unions can potentially be more revolutionary than political parties including Communist Parties, & be revolutionary without leadership by parties; the view that electioneering can be replaced with direct action campaigns; that the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939) shows unions taking power and making a bottom-up worker-controlled revolution; and how NUMSA’s current actions refute Marxist-Leninist theory; other problems with that theory’s traditional approach to unions; and the implications of all of this for current debates over the form of a new socialist movement in South Africa and elsewhere; and the nature of the South African ruling class and the primary social contradictions.

Lucien van der Walt is co-author of “Black Flame: The revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism” (w.Michael Schmidt, 2009, AK Press) and co-editor of “Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1870-1940” (w. Steve Hirsch and Benedict Anderson, 2010, Brill). He has a long history of involvement in the working class movements. read full story / add a comment
