north america / mexico / anarchist movement / opinion / analysis Friday October 28, 2011 10:33 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

Después de que el pasado miércoles el imperio agroindustrial de INCAUCA asesinara al comunero indígena y Liberador de tierra JAVIER OTECA en la hacienda Miraflores de Corinto, el día de hoy aparece una nueva amenaza paramilitar contra el proceso de Liberación de la Emperatriz, en Caloto. Como otros panfletos que circulan en el Norte del Cauca desde enero del presente año, el grupo paramilitar de las Águilas Negras aparece como el autor de las amenazas de muerte, lo preocupante es que en este caso aparece el nombre y los apellidos de 13 Liberadores de Tierra de la Emperatriz. Además se ofrece dinero por el asesinato de cualquiera de ellos.

Hoy 22 de marzo a la 1:30 pm fue asesinado en la zona rural de Corinto el indígena y liberador de la Madre Tierra JAVIER OTECA. Este asesinato fue perpetrado por miembros de la seguridad privada de la hacienda Miraflores, con complicidad de Ejercito Nacional quienes, pese a que se encontraban a pocos metros del lugar donde fue baleado JAVIER OTECA, no hicieron nada por detener a los responsables sino que, por el contrario, cubrieron su escape.

Kawa’nın yüz yıllar önce yaktığı isyan ateşi, devletin Newroz’u yasaklamasına rağmen, Kürdistan’ın dört bir yanında harlanmaya devam ediyor.
Bugün, Demirci Kawa’nın zalim Dehaq’ın karşısına çıkarak “Ey Saray sahibi, seninle adalet için kavga etmeye geldim!” dediği gündür. Bugün, kavganın ve isyanın, direnerek özgürleşmenin günüdür. Bugün, Kawa’nın çıktığı yolda, aynı adalet kavgasıyla; yaşadığımız coğrafyada süren soykırım girişimlerine, kimyasal gazlarla katliamlara, zorla göç ettirmelere ve asimilasyon politikalarına karşı isyanı büyütmenin günüdür. Bugün Newroz’dur!

Le scorciatoie del sovranismo portano la sinistra in un vicolo cieco; invece occorre rilanciare una prassi internazionalista e combattere il capitalismo in ogni luogo di lavoro e di vita, costruendo orizzonti di alternativa sociale in cui donne ed uomini organizzati come classe di sfruttati ed oppressi sfidano il dominio capitalistico e populista e ricostruiscono solidarietà e partecipazione dal basso.
