north america / mexico / anarchist movement / opinion / analysis Friday October 28, 2011 09:33 by Jeff Shantz
It is sometimes said that while anti-capitalist and alternative globalization movements are clear on what we do not want, we are less clear on what we do want (socialism, anarchism, specifics). Certainly, recent movements have not been as effective as their predecessors (labor in the 1910s and ‘30s; the social movements of the ‘60s and ‘70s) in sustaining the sorts of practices – intellectual and material – that put into effect aspects of the alternative world we seek. My colleague Alan Sears attributes this current inability to a decline in what he calls “infrastructures of dissent” or what I prefer to call “infrastructures of resistance.” As anti-capitalist movements face possibilities of growth, as happened after Seattle in 1999, questions of organization and the relation of various activities to each other and to broader movements for social change can only become more urgent. Yet, the absence of durable organizations or institutions, formal or informal, rooted in working-class organizations and communities, makes for demoralization or a retreat into subculturalism, as has happened to many of the alternative globalization groups. We now face a pressing need to rebuild “infrastructures of resistance” that might sustain not only activists and organizers, but especially the poor and working-class people who are being disastrously impacted by the current crisis. read full story / add a comment

Generally speaking, you might expect any union executive wrapping up negotiations that will see the loss of around 3500 members to be feeling as though things had gone dreadfully wrong. Yet there was Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) leader Buzz Hargrove announcing the loss of almost 1500 GM jobs (following losses of 1100 at Ford and at least 1000 at Daimler-Chrysler) by claiming: “I’m absolutely elated.” read full story / add a comment

In recent years a variety of social movement and environmental commentators have devoted a great deal of energy to efforts which argue the demise of class struggle as a viable force for social change (See Eckersley, 1990; Bowles and Gintis, 1987; Bookchin, 1993; 1997). These writers argue that analyses of class struggle are unable to account for the plurality of expressions which hierarchy, domination and oppression take in advanced capitalist or what they prefer to call "postindustrial" societies (See Bookchin, 1980; 1986). They charge that class analyses render a one-dimensional portrayal of social relations. The result of this has been a broad practical and theoretical turn away from questions of class and especially class struggle. read full story / add a comment

As anarcha-feminists, when we think of "reproductive rights" we usually first think of a woman's right to choose when/where/how she has children in terms of her access to free, safe abortions and multiple birth control technologies. We might think of Emma Goldman standing on a soapbox risking arrest to talk to women about condoms, or of our sisters currently standing on the front lines doing clinic defense actions. But on the flip side of the same coin is the right to choose to have a child, and the access to health care and a safe environment to enable that choice. Creeping liberalism and racism manifest when the equation that abortion equals "individual choice free from state interference", or the interests of white, middle class women become the dominant interpretation of reproductive liberty. read full story / add a comment

textPalestina-Israele - la lotta unitaria in tempi turbolenti 15:41 Fri 14 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

La lotta popolare non-armata delle comunità palestinesi, a cui aderiscono gli Anarchici Contro il Muro ed altri, non è una lotta di "liberazione nazionale" o di "autodeterminazione" della nazione palestinese. E' invece la lotta del popolo palestinese, la cui stragrande maggioranza è composta di lavoratori, contro la minaccia di sgomberi e contro lo sfruttamento imposto dal progetto coloniale sionista di Israele. Nessuno di coloro i quali partecipano alle lotte e che non stanno dentro l'elite palestinese nutre illusioni sull'elite palestinese e sullo Stato che governeranno e gestiranno dopo la fine dell'occupazione.

Πήραν το όνομά τους από τον πρώτο πλωτό κινηματογράφο που λειτουργούσε στο λιμάνι της Θεσσαλονίκης την περίοδο του μεσοπολέμου και από τον τίτλο του φιλμ του Ν. Θεοδοσίου (2006) για τη ζωή του γνωστού αγωνιστή συμβόλου της εξέγερσης της Θεσσαλονίκης το 1936, Μπαρμπα-Γιάννη Ταμτάκου. Εμείς επιλέξαμε να χρησιμοποιήσουμε το όνομα Κουρσάλ για το εκδοτικό μας εγχείρημα ως μια υπενθύμιση μιας άλλης Θεσσαλονίκης, πολυεθνικής και αγωνιστικής.

O debate a respeito do cenário pós-eleitoral, ao contrário do que muitos esperavam, não se atenuou. Aumenta a intensidade dos protestos por direita, e, ao mesmo tempo, abre-se todo um leque de possibilidades para colocar o governo reeleito contra a parede, diminuindo ainda mais sua estreita margem de manobra. Podemos identificar quatro possibilidades dentro do cenário complexo onde se realizam arenas simultâneas de embate.

São estes:

imageEUA x ISIS, “outra guerra estúpida” onde a esperança da humanidade está nas forças curdas Nov 19 by BrunoL 0 comments

No início de setembro, enquanto a OTAN realizava o seu encontro anual, com o secretário da aliança passando o chapéu para apertar as receitas dos países membros, constatava-se uma corrida do horror. Alimentados pelos aliados dos EUA na região, a Al-Qaeda força a fronteira da Síria com Israel e, ao mesmo tempo, anuncia a formação de seu braço na Índia. No Levante, enfrentam-se criador (Al-Qaeda, através de seu braço, Frente Al Nusra) e criatura (ISIS, racha da Al-Qaeda no Iraque). A superpotência assistia “quase inerte”, para não se envolver demais e criar um novo despertar sunita. Por fim, a grande questão é: - Como é possível uma força móvel, o ISIS, ser financiada por um califado pirata que vive vendendo petróleo? Óleo cru não é tão simples de transportar e menos ainda de realizar compensações bancárias correto?

Poucas vezes pude concordar tanto com Sardenberg (se é que não foi primeira), âncora da CBN, colunista do Jornal da Globo, blogueiro e jornalista da velha guarda no rumo inexorável da curva à direita já feita por Paulo Francis, dentre outros. O comentarista de economia do jornal noturno da empresa líder sugere para Dilma a cópia do modelo de comportamento chinês, pois segundo o próprio:

"Os líderes chineses têm uma habilidade especial para adotar políticas pró-mercado com uma retórica de esquerda para agradar esse lado do Partido. Vire à direita, dê sinal à esquerda — tal é o ensinamento."
