Like in 2008, the recent wave of anti-immigrant violence and looting of foreign-owned stores that followed King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners must “pack their bags and leave” quickly spread to cities and townships across the country. Unlike other places in Johannesburg, however, there were no reports of xenophobic violence in Thembelihle and, although the violence spread to numerous parts of Soweto in 2008, this adjacent township was unaffected then too. This article, based on an interview with an activist from the Thembelihle Crisis Committee (TCC), looks at how working class self-organisation and solidarity helped curb or prevent the outbreak of xenophobic attacks and attempts to draw lessons for preventing future attacks.

The xenophobic violence and looting following King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners “pack their bags and leave” spread to cities and townships across the country. However, the recent attacks are not an isolated incident; nor is Zwelithini solely responsible for fomenting it. Local elites – particularly those linked to the ruling party – also encourage anti-immigrant attitudes and actions. This article, based on discussions with Abahlali baseFreedom Park activists, looks at how local elites stimulate ‘xenophobia’ to protect their class interests, as well as how progressive working class activists have responded.

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’

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.
southern africa / the left / opinion / analysis Wednesday September 03, 2014 16:26 byJonathan Payn   image 1 image
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.

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

Failures of democracy have been a big part of the history of the DLF. We in the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF) have had to raise such challenges several times (see “DLF structure: concerns and proposals” by ZACF). We have long been troubled by the lack of proper democratic structures, by a leadership that consists far more of middle-class intellectuals than of grassroots militants, and by a programme that seems to be determined in advance by the academic and NGO interests of these intellectuals instead of by the immediate needs of the workers and the poor. read full story / add a comment

It was recently reported by various newspapers that ‘a “notorious gang of anarchists” with links to cash heists is attempting to destabilise the Gauteng ANC’. Newspaper articles [*] quoted ANC provincial secretary David Makhura as saying that an ANC investigation would ‘expose the hidden hand of business people who are fuelling and financing activities that seek to disrupt the functioning of the ANC’. The claims came after a group of disgruntled party members allegedly held an unofficial parallel election to decide the party’s Tshwane leader. According to Makhura the parallel gathering ‘was organised by a notorious gang of anarchists, most of whom have disciplinary cases’. read full story / add a comment

The Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front, or ZACF – Zabalaza meaning ‘struggle’ in isiZulu and isiXhosa – is a specific anarchist political organisation based in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is a unitary organisation – or federation of individuals, as opposed to a federation of collectives – whereby membership is on an individual basis, by invitation only. This is because we have seen – through our own experience, as well as that of global anarchism historically – that we can accomplish more as an organisation, and be more effective, when our members share a certain level of theoretical and strategic unity, and collective responsibility.

Across South America there is a growing movement – assuming different forms and characteristics, but with similar origins, demands and objectives – that, despite it being located at a strategically important intersection between two critical social issues – class struggle and ecology – seems to me to have received little attention in South African academic and activist circles. And this is true despite the fact that the social and economic conditions that gave rise to this movement prevail in South Africa, as they did – and continue to – in many South American countries. Perhaps this is due to the fact that this movement concerns people largely marginalised by industrial society and so-called ‘brown’ ecological issues – such as the pollution and contamination of rivers and dams surrounding poor communities, most acutely effecting the workers and poor – as opposed to the much more sanitary ‘green’ ecological issues – such as conservation and animal welfare – often associated, in South Africa at least, with liberal white activists from the middle and upper classes [1]. This is the movement of the catadores, as they are known in Brazil, and clasificadores in Uruguay; the recyclable waste pickers and sorters who, similarly to South Africa, constitute a growing informal sector in the industrial production cycle. This includes all people – not formally employed by public or private waste management services – who collect, transport, classify and sell recyclable waste for a living – or ‘work with scrap’ – thus “reducing demand for natural resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions” [2]. A category of work which, according to the World Bank, is performed by 15 million people globally – or one percent of the world population [3] – and has become increasingly common in South Africa in recent years. read full story / add a comment

The promise of safe, reliable and affordable public transport comes as welcome news for the majority of working class and poor South Africans and immigrants to the country. The segregated town planning left behind by the system of racialised capitalism known as apartheid has meant that the majority of the population – also those who can least afford it – are often the ones who have the furthest to travel to work, schools, hospitals and so on.

This article looks at the Bus Rapid Transit system, what BRT really is, how our so-called leaders plan to implement it – since, as usual, there has been very little popular involvement – and whether our leaders, or BRT, can serve the needs of the poor and working class read full story / add a comment

A solo 14 anni dalla fine dell'apartheid qualcuno sostiene che siamo in presenza di una nuova apartheid. A solo 14 anni dal genocidio in Rwanda c'è chi dice che in Sud Africa si stia verificando un genocidio particolare. Niente a che vedere con il gap economico tuttora esistente tra sudafricani con diverso colore della pelle e nemmeno con una guerra tra diversi gruppi etnici come in Rwanda.

Only 14 years after the end of apartheid some say that this is a new apartheid. Only 14 years after the genocide in Rwanda some say that this is a genocide South African style. But this time it is not just about the still existing economic gap between South Africans of different skin colours, nor about a war between different ethnopolitical groups like in Rwanda. It is about nationality and the fight between those who have the minimum security of being born in South Africa, and the unlucky ones who have no such security – who have, in many cases, had to flee to South Africa from violence or starvation elsewhere. The events of May 2008 show a deep xenophobic sentiment in South Africa that is largely due to social and economic circumstances. It is a poisonous cocktail of nationalism mixed with lack of service delivery. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Desde Acción Libertaria Estudiantil hemos decidido no pasar por alto la coyuntura nacional relacionada con la culminación de los diálogos de paz entre las FARC-EP y el gobierno de Juan Manuel Santos y la pronta refrendación de los acuerdos. Hemos decidido hacer visible nuestra postura ya que consideramos que este es un acontecimiento que significará cambios sociales y políticos relevantes, no solo por el retorno a la vida civil de un sector importante de quienes optaron por hacer política a través de las armas y que hoy buscan continuar su proyecto en el marco de la legalidad, cerrando el ciclo de una de las insurgencias más antiguas de América Latina, sino también porque se presenta como una oportunidad para hacer visibles los problemas estructurales que dieron origen, permanencia y degradación a más de medio siglo de guerra interna. Creemos que este nuevo panorama, lleno de incertidumbres, tiene dentro de sí un mar de limitaciones y retos pero también posibilidades que debemos aprovechar para volcar las fuerzas hacia una construcción amplia y conjunta de las luchas sociales. Vemos que la tarea fundamental más allá del apoyo o no de los acuerdos está en forjar un pueblo fuerte que se encamine hacia la construcción de una vida digna y una sociedad nueva.

Este 2016 ha marcado grandes hitos para el conjunto de los movimientos sociales, por un lado tenemos las grandes movilizaciones en contra del sistema de pensiones chileno de AFP, en donde se ha cuestionado un pilar fundamental del modelo neoliberal. Sin duda trabajadores y trabajadoras de todo el país se han manifestado en la calle con una masividad nunca vista desde las movilizaciones en contra de la dictadura. Por otro lado, lamentablemente, tenemos la crisis de la Central Unitaria de Trabajadores. En el proceso electoral de agosto evidenció la decadencia del sindicalismo noventero, burócrata y colaborador con los gobiernos de turno. Sin duda ambos temas tienen una directa relación. Cuestionar al modelo por medio de ideas y activismo social no es suficiente, también debe materializarse por organizaciones sociales fuertes que logren dar conducción y presionar, por medio de la movilizaciones sociales, huelgas generales y propuestas transformadoras para el país. Sin una central de trabajadores fuerte no serán posibles los cambios que Chile necesita realmente, ni los municipios, ni el parlamento, ni el poder ejecutivo y judicial, solo el poder social y popular de las y los trabajadores.

Την Τρίτη 13 του μηνός (Σεπτεμβρίου) έγινε γνωστή η ανακοίνωση του συλλόγου γονέων και κηδεμόνων σχολείου του Ωραιοκάστρου, η οποία απειλούσε με κλείσιμο του εν λόγω σχολείου σε περίπτωση εγγραφής ως μαθητών ή χρήσης του κτηρίου από παιδιά μεταναστών. Αυτή η απόφαση έπεται του δημοτικού συμβολίου Ωραιοκάστρου και βρίσκει θερμούς συμμάχους και υποστηρικτές τόσο το δήμαρχο όσο και λοιπούς ακροατές και συμβούλους που εν χορώ διαλαλούν τα ρατσιστικά και ακροδεξιά παραληρήματα τους.
