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

In un tempo in cui le lacrime non si sono asciugate e la rabbia non si è ancora placata per le città distrutte dai carri armati e dai bombardamenti, per le centinaia di persone uccise, per le migliaia di vecchi, bambini, donne ed uomini feriti e sfollati, vivono nella nostra memoria le immagini dei colpevoli che si ricoprono di medaglie; in un tempo in cui i carri armati e gli aerei che hanno distrutto città ed ucciso le persone prendono di mira Ankara ed Istanbul lo scorso 15 luglio, gli eroi vengono accusati di tradimento nel giro di una notte. Migliaia di persone vengono stipate nelle carceri, decine di migliaia hanno perso il loro posto di lavoro. [Türkçe] [English] [Ελληνικά]

Ο εχθρός των ναζί είναι το εργατικό και κοινωνικό κίνημα που παλεύει για δικαιοσύνη. Ας μην διαψεύσουμε τους φόβους τους ούτε στιγμή. Δεν φτάνει στο δρόμο να κατεβαίνουν οι 200-300 ενεργοί πολίτες για να πνίξουν το φίδι. Χρειάζεται να φτιαχτεί ένα ακηδεμόνευτο «από τα κάτω» οριζόντιο μαχητικό αντιφασιστικό κίνημα, στην εργασία, στα σχολεία, τις γειτονιές κ.α που όχι μόνο θα φράζει το δρόμο στους φασίστες, αλλά θα ανοίγει γενικευμένα το δρόμο της αντίστασης και της ανυπακοής στις προσταγές των “από πάνω”.

Ο Umut Firat Suvariogullari, που βρίσκεται στην 39 ημέρα απεργίας πείνας για να υπερασπιστεί την ταυτότητά του ως επαναστάτη αναρχικού και να δημιουργήσει βιώσιμες συνθήκες διαβίωσης, συνεχίζει τον αγώνα του, ενάντια σε όλες αυτές τις συνθήκες, και για να απελευθερωθεί με τον αγώνα του.

Los desalojos en el barrio Nuevo Jerusalén comenzaron sin garantías para las 175 familias que serán desalojadas, el Estado encarnado en las alcaldías municipales de Bello y Medellín no tiene una propuesta clara para reubicar a estas familias, solo han brindado un arriendo temporal de “3 meses con posibilidad de prórroga”, una solución en el aire para las familias que desde hace más de 10 años están construyendo su hogar, su casa, gentes que fueron desplazadas y que tampoco tuvieron apoyo o garantías a su llegada a la ciudad. Hoy estos hogares construidos con esfuerzo están siendo convertidos en escombros.

Yesterday, at a time when the tears have not dried and the rage is not settled yet for the cities burned down to rubble with tanks and bombing, hundreds of people killed, thousands of old, young, child, women and men wounded and unhoused; the images of the perpetrators taking medals are alive in our memories; when the tanks and planes which burned down the cities and killed the people targeted Ankara and Istanbul on July 15, yesterdays heros were declared traitors overnight. Thousands of people were stuffed into prisons, tens of thousands lost their jobs. [Türkçe] [Ελληνικά] [Italiano]

This past week on January 11th, the body of Michael Israel, Sacramento organizer and late YPG volunteer, finally arrived in California from overseas. His journey back into the United States took over a month, and began in Syria with a ceremony and mourning procession to send him off. His California community has been awaiting his arrival, and organized a funeral procession of their own to welcome Michael home for the last time. Sacramento and Bay Area activists, individuals from the California Kurdish community, and Michael’s friends and family all came together to accompanied him from the San Francisco Airport to Lodi, his hometown. Over fifty people took part in the long-distance procession, traveling in around 20 cars, vans, and buses festooned with YPG and anti-fascist flags, flowers, and pictures of Michael.

Κατά την περίοδο 1860-1870 μέσα από την συζήτηση και την πολεμική κριτική ανάμεσα στους Μαρξ και Μπακούνιν ήρθαν στην επιφάνεια του εργατικού κινήματος δύο διαφορετικές ερμηνείες του κοινωνικού μετασχηματισμού, του τι είναι πράγματι κυριαρχία και ποιες συνθήκες είναι απαραίτητες για την απελευθέρωση του ανθρώπου. Η έντονη αντίθεση ανάμεσα στις δύο μεγάλες κινηματικές προσωπικότητες είχε τις βάσεις της σε θεμελιώδεις θεωρητικές διαφορές, που ακόμη και σήμερα συνεχίζουν να υφίστανται. Αυτός ο διαξιφισμός ήταν και η πρώτη αιτία για τη διάλυση της Πρώτης Διεθνούς και που αργότερα στιγμάτισε τις πιο ριζοσπαστικές τάσεις, αναρχικές και κομμουνιστικές, του διεθνούς εργατικού κινήματος.
