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

La lotta unitaria dei comitati popolari dei villaggi e degli israeliani di "Anarchici contro il muro" è iniziata circa 12 anni fa nel campo di Mas'ha. Le lotte unitarie si sono sviluppate in vari villaggi con successo alterno, ma solo la lotta del villaggio di Bil'in si è fatta persistente anno dopo anno tenendo alta la bandiera della lotta popolare non-armata e diventando il punto di riferimento per l'attenzione e l'ispirazione dei Palestinesi di tutta di Cisgiordania e di migliaia di attivisti internazionali che si sono uniti a noi per brevi periodi (alcuni anche più a lungo) diffondendo le notizie e la lotta una volta tornati a casa. Anche alcune migliaia di attivisti della variegata sinistra radicale israeliana sono stati a Bil'in almeno una volta aiutandoci ad impedire l'emarginazione della resistenza popolare palestinese.

imageSobre la solidaridad del proceso social en Rojava: entrevista a un militante del DAF Feb 25 by BrunoL 0 comments

Nota preliminar: Rojava es una región autónoma en el Kurdistán Sirio, está compuesto por tres cantones ubicados al norte y al noroeste de Siria y que no se hallan contiguos: Efrin, Cezire y Kobane. La mayoría de la población aquí es kurda, pero hay gente de un sinnúmero de religiones y perteneciente a una importante diversidad de etnias. Durante la “Primavera Árabe” del 2011, cuando los ojos del mundo posaban sobre Egipto y Túnez, se desató la guerra civil en Siria. Un año después, ya en el verano del 2012, la autoridad de Bashar al-Assad y su gobierno perdió terreno en el Rojava. En lugar de aliarse a los rebeldes sirios, los kurdos decidieron optar por su autonomía, y declararon la libertad e independencia de su región de todo poder (Estado o Nación); optaron por el autogobierno. Si en algún momento los kurdos lucharon por su propio Estado, ahora lo hacen por el Confederalismo Democrático, un programa donde predomina la democracia directa desde las bases, la autonomía de gobierno, la equidad de género, la economía de cooperación y otros importantes pilares como la ecología y la cooperación federativa. En la actualidad, la Guerra Civil Siria ha planteado dos frentes contra los kurdos, por un lado el gobierno sirio y por otro los rebeldes extremistas en la zona (en especial el Estado Islámico); la vecina Turquía es hostil al proceso de Rojava e Iraq representa un riesgo latente debido al empuje de la coalición occidental y árabe contra el Estado Islámico en ese país. A continuación presentamos una entrevista realizada por Bruno Lima en enero del presente año a un militante de la organización turca Acción Revolucionaria Anarquista. Hemos alterado levemente el texto para insertar notas al final y permitir que la lectura sea más fluida, así como también para comprender la naturaleza de ciertas organizaciones que podrían ser ajenas al lector.

Μακεδονία-Θράκη 1903. Η οθωμανική τουρκική αυτοκρατορία βρισκόταν σε στάδιο παρακμής. Για αιώνες, οι Αρχές της κυβερνούσαν με σκληρότητα, επιβάλλοντας φόρους και άλλες υποχρεώσεις, αλλά στις περισσότερες περιπτώσεις επιτρέποντας στους υπηκόους να μιλούν τη γλώσσα τους και να λατρεύουν τη θρησκεία τους. Τώρα, όμως, ήταν μια εποχή κρίσιμη. Τα σύνορα της Αυτοκρατορίας δέχονταν πιέσεις, και η οθωμανική κυριαρχία γινόταν ολοένα και πιο σκληρή και καταπιεστική. Το φάσμα των απελευθερωτικών αγώνων στοίχειωνε τις φθίνουσες οθωμανικές κατακτήσεις στα Νότια Βαλκάνια. Βίαιες εξεγέρσεις διαδέχονταν η μία την άλλη, από τη μια γενιά στην επόμενη.
