A "revolutionary alternative from below" that was not quite to be but holds pertinent lessons for movements today.

Part 1: NUMSA and the ‘United Front Against Neoliberalism’

In the October Revolution of 1917, the Bolshevik Party, together with other revolutionaries, overthrew the Provisional Government established in February and – together, initially, with left Social Revolutionaries – seized power. How did the Bolsheviks – a minority just eight months earlier, when the February Revolution overthrew the Tsar and established the Provisional Government – come to power so quickly? How did this small force emerge from relative obscurity to win large sections of the working class to its programme and take power? Herein lies the root and essence of United Front policy in a traditional Marxist sense. First published in issue 88 of Workers World News Part 1: NUMSA and the ‘United Front Against Neoliberalism’
Part 2: Anti-militarist United Fronts and Italy’s “Red week”, 1914

The United Front tactic – aimed at uniting masses of workers in action and winning Communist leadership for the working class – was adopted as policy by the Communist International (Comintern) in 1921 and will be discussed later in this series. However, there are important examples of working class unity in action which predate Comintern policy and bear relevance to the united fronts discussion. One often-cited example is the united front to defend the gains of the February Revolution from a military coup in Russia in 1917, which will be discussed in the next article in this series.

Before looking at this, however, there is another example of proletarian unity in action – that didn’t seek to win Communist leadership – which warrants attention; that of a revolutionary worker-peasant alliance. This conception of united front action found expression in Italy’s anti-militarist “red blocs” and it is to these that we now turn.

NUMSA: The United Front is a weapon for uniting the working class.

The resolution adopted by the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) to form a ‘United Front against neoliberalism’ – as well as its decision not to endorse the ANC in the elections – represents an interesting development in the political landscape, one which activists should look at carefully and engage.

Due to the language used by the media, the Left, NUMSA’s critics and even NUMSA itself much confusion surrounds the debate – leaving many questions: Is the ‘United Front’ an organisation or attempt to build a new labour federation or political party? Is it an attempt to revive the 1980s United Democratic Front (UDF)? Why NUMSA’s sudden interest in community struggles?

This series, of which this article is the first, aims to clarify these and other questions by looking at the proposal and history of united fronts locally and internationally to clarify key issues and draw lessons that activists can use when engaging the pros and cons of NUMSA’s United Front proposal and if and how they think it should be developed.

El primero de mayo es reconocido en el mundo como un día de actividades de movilización relacionadas con el trabajo, en el cual se mezclan infinidad de concepciones, prácticas, deseos y añoranzas de muchos individuos y grupos organizados, aun su carácter reivindicativo de las luchas del proletariado mundial no parece en nuestros días haber una confrontación de clases tal como las ocurridas en Chicago a finales del siglo XIX. De ahí la obvia excusa para que reflexionemos sobre eso del trabajo y el trabajador. ¿Ha mejorado su situación? ¿Se vislumbran siquiera en el horizonte las siluetas de una nueva sociedad? ¿Se ha perdido el rumbo o nunca lo ha habido? read full story / add a comment

Especialmente en Ucrania y Venezuela, se ha observado como sectores de derechas han salido a las calles a manifestar su oposición apropiándose de estrategias de lucha comúnmente utilizadas por los sectores populares y las izquierdas. Estas manifestaciones han sido nutridas por la clases medias y altas, estudiantes universitarios, grupos fascistoides, ongs y una gama variopinta de población, apoyados por USAID (agencia de cooperación y ayuda de los gringos a la pobreza que ellos mismos crean) y la fundación Open Society Institutes del multimillonario George Soros. read full story / add a comment

El 9, 10 y 11 de mayo de 2014 se llevó a cabo en Medellín la segunda feria anarquista del libro y el fanzine. Durante esos tres días se contó con actividades como charlas, debates y exposiciones que reflejaron parte de las experiencias de trabajo sobre todo las que se vienen desarrollando alrededor de las letras y la escritura. Hubo una muestra permanente de material escrito a cargo de las editoriales, librerías y distribuidoras, además de un taller de encuadernación casera, todo acompañado de teatro, bazares, comidas, cafés y una significativa asistencia no solo de colectivos e individualidades libertarias sino de muchas otras personas afines y gustosos de la literatura anti-autoritaria. read full story / add a comment

There has been much hype, amongst the media and sections of the public, in the run up to this year’s provincial and national elections in South Africa and, for some, the arrival of new parties to the electoral arena has renewed their faith in the possibility of an electoral solution to the myriad of problems facing South Africa. Politicians from across all parties have been using this hype and a seemingly renewed faith in the ballot box to their advantage. The question, therefore, is: can equality, socialism, national liberation or ‘economic freedom’ – or even a respite from state violence – for a majority be brought about through parties and activists entering into the state or through voting for parties that promise not to use the state for violent or oppressive means; or will this only lead to a dead-end for the working class yet again? read full story / add a comment

Marmato con su incesante rugir no duerme para vivir en su propio tiempo, ritmo y realidad socio histórica. Construido en medio de vibrantes montañas por las que atraviesa sinuoso el río Cauca, desde siglos atrás permanece habitado por comunidades que defienden con valentía el futuro de sus descendientes. Los pequeños mineros tradicionales marmateños tienen la férrea convicción que los cerros les pertenecen, que las minas de sus abuelos son de sus nietos, que la entrada de las compañías extranjeras en locomotoras desarrollistas amenazan su modo de vida y que el Paro (léase bloqueo de vías, acciones directas o vías de hecho) es necesario para que el gobierno tenga en cuenta sus justas exigencias. read full story / add a comment

Estos días no dejamos de escuchar en los comercios, en la televisión o en las pistas de baile, la canción de moda del momento: el Gangnam Style de PSY. Con el videoclip de la canción, el artista surcoreano ha conseguido convertirse en el intérprete del vídeo más visto en Internet de todos los tiempos, superando holgadamente los mil millones de espectadores1. Sirva este ejemplo, o los más de 800 millones del “Baby” de la súper-estrella adolescente Justin Bieber2, para resaltar el poder de convocatoria social que tienen los videoclips entre los más jóvenes. Esta enorme capacidad de atracción de miradas y el poder social derivado de ella, sirven a las Industrias Culturales Hegemónicas (IICCHH) no solo para aumentar sus beneficios como empresas transnacionales, sino también para reproducir y ampliar la hegemonía burguesa en el mundo. Conformando sueños y modelos de vida, distraen a los jóvenes de las clases populares del decurso de su maltratado mundo real y proyectan sus esfuerzos (y su libido) hacia objetivos vacuos que en la mayoría de casos sólo les acarrearán frustraciones (como conseguir una chica o un chico tan guapos como los de los videoclips, acumular riquezas materiales o cultivar una competencia exacerbada respecto a sus semejantes). read full story / add a comment

Las acciones legítimas de sacar a los actores armados del territorio CXAB WALA KIWE del Norte del Cauca, por la defensa de la madre tierra, es una consecuencia lógica, sabia y de absoluta resistencia de un pueblo digno cansado y atropellado por un sistema de muerte: el capitalismo. Muchas y muchos creen que este es solo asunto de hace unos cuantos meses. Hay que recordar que nuestros compañerxs indígenas están en lucha milenaria y se niegan a desaparecer. Uno de sus mayores logros ante los nuevos inquisidores en la época de la independencia, no precisamente por la aristocracia criolla, sino como fruto de la insurrección comunera, fue el otorgar reconocimiento a los resguardos indígenas “mientras no se hayan vendido o permutado.” (Antonio García, Los Comuneros, p.245, Ed. Desde Abajo), Algunos resguardos desaparecieron, pero otros se han mantenido, han sido refugio, se han fortalecido y son la manera de permanencia y conservación de las culturas indígenas y del territorio. read full story / add a comment

La forma como fueron narradas las tomas y los desalojos por parte de gran cantidad de indígenas en el Cauca contra el ejército colombiano y sus bases militares evidencian y reconfirman los puntos que venimos argumentando de los medios masivos de comunicación burgueses: (1) pueden deslegitimar acciones del gobierno más no al statu quo como tal, (2) narran la guerra desde la perspectiva del gobierno y de ciertos intereses económicos, (3) juegan un papel decisivo en la formación de opinión ya que construyen consensos mediante información tergiversada, (4) pueden despertar patriotismo y aprobaciones de represión estatal legitimando atropellos contra comunidades que resisten a la guerra, (5) fabrican falsos escenarios de la situación política, social y económica creíbles para los espectadores. read full story / add a comment

The old world order, in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of the US - continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine, has ended. Europe has started to advance its own interests, which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinion against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the West Bank contributes a lot. It was the approach of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for elections, to save himself from the normally-timed election when the crisis would be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles has focused attention on the ferment and rising of the popular non-armed struggles of which Israel is contemplating suppression with systematic use of live ammunition.

Lo Stato di Israele è stato costruito soprattutto dai socialisti nazionalisti che controllavano il 75% dell'economia nel 1949. A causa della dipendenza dalle potenze imperialiste i cosiddetti socialisti investirono soprattutto nella costruzione di una elite capital-sionista che perse il potere nel 1977. I conflitti di interesse all'interno della classe dirigente capital-sionista iniziarono a mutare l'equilibrio tra la piccola fazione di industriali favorevole all'espulsione dei palestinesi e la fazione capitalista integrata nella globalizzazione neoliberista che voleva sfruttare i palestinesi ed i lavoratori dei paesi vicini.

17 de dezembro de 2014, Bruno Lima Rocha

No Brasil, a estimativa de perdas (ou gastos) com a corrupção é da ordem de R$ 69 bilhões de reais ao ano. Já a sonegação (sem contar a injustiça fiscal) chega a R$ 415 bilhões de reais. E, por fim, se da sonegação (e o sonegômetro quase ninguém fala), a gastança com a rolagem da dívida odiosa é ainda mais ocultada. Este gasto é da ordem de R$ 718 bilhões de reais ao ano! Esconder estes números e inverter as prioridades é o conluio da mídia hegemônica com os operadores do mercado financeiro e seus representantes, dentro e fora do governo de turno.

L'analisi è relativamente complessa e la risultante sembra essere semplice. Le forze sociali della Rojava sono circondate avendo alle spalle il confine con la Turchia. Prima della liberazione della parte siriana del Kurdistan, le vie usate dai trafficanti di armi per l'approvvigionamento logistico dei jihadisti potevano contare sull'aiuto (tolleranza) dello Stato turco. Dopo il luglio 2012, le YPG, milizie di autodifesa organicamente legate alla TEV-Dem [composizione delle forze sociali egemonizzade dal PYD (Partito di Unione Democratica) che organizza la società locale] hanno cominciato a chiudere il confine nella ricerca di una autonomia regionale.
