Σε αυτήν την ενότητα θα ερευνήσουμε κάποιες από τις πλέον συγκλονιστικές περιπτώσεις εμπλοκής του αναρχισμού και του συνδικαλισμού στους εθνικοαπελευθερωτικούς αγώνες. Θα εστιάσουμε σε αγώνες που διεξήχθησαν στο εσωτερικό χωρών που βρίσκονταν υπό ιμπεριαλιστική κυριαρχία. Βέβαια, αυτή είναι μόνο η μισή ιστορία της αναρχικής και συνδικαλιστικής συμμετοχής στους αντιιμπεριαλιστικούς αγώνες, καθώς ένα σημαντικό μέρος της αντιιμπεριαλιστικής ιστορίας της ευρύτερης αναρχικής παράδοσης έχει να κάνει με τους αντιμιλιταριστικούς αγώνες στο εσωτερικό των ίδιων των ιμπεριαλιστικών χωρών· επαναλαμβάνουμε ότι αυτό το σκέλος έχει συζητηθεί στο κεφάλαιο 8, όπου μελετήθηκε η αντίθεση των αναρχικών στον πόλεμο και τις κατακτήσεις. read full story / add a comment

Ο αναρχισμός είναι ένα διεθνιστικό κίνημα. Όπως ακριβώς η εργατική τάξη και οι αγρότες βρίσκονται σε όλον τον κόσμο και όπως ακριβώς ο καπιταλισμός και η γαιοκτησία υπάρχουν παντού, έτσι και οι αγώνες είναι απαραίτητο να διεξάγονται και να συντονίζονται πέρα από τα όρια των συνόρων. Το κράτος αποτελεί εργαλείο των πλουσίων και των ισχυρών, όχι τη φωνή ενός λαού ή μιας χώρας, συνεπώς ο αγώνας δεν θα πρέπει να περιορίζεται στα κρατικά σύνορα· τα βασικά συμφέροντα των λαϊκών τάξεων είναι ουσιαστικά παντού τα ίδια. read full story / add a comment

May Day – a call to build an international movement of working class and poor people across lines of race, nation and religion for workers’ control and democracy from below, social justice and freedom from political and economic oppression – remains critical. In a country racked by anti-immigrant violence, racial and ethnic tensions, the fragmentation of the labour federation Cosatu, corporate scandals and political corruption, it is time to remember May Day’s roots and aspirations.

COSATU (Congreso de Sindicatos Sudafricanos, por sus siglas en inglés] ha optado por demandar la introducción de una renta básica. Lucien van der Walt defiende que los sindicatos se han desviado con reivindicaciones tecnocráticas y que la reivindicación de la protección social debería estar conectada a la lucha de la clase trabajadora para reinventar la sociedad. read full story / add a comment

Lightly edited transcript from Lucien van der Walt’s discussion at 1st National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) Political School, September 2013. From his debate with Solly Mapaila, 2nd deputy GS of the South African Communist Party (SACP) on anarcho-syndicalist versus Leninist views of the revolutionary potential of unions. A version was printed in ASR #61 2014, pp. 11-20

Captures van der Walt’s main points: the debate on the anarcho-syndicalist view that revolutionary trade unions, allied to other movements, creating a self-managed worker-controlled socialism through mass education, counter-power and workplace occupations; anarcho-syndicalism as a working class tradition; the anarcho-syndicalist view that unions can potentially be more revolutionary than political parties including Communist Parties, & be revolutionary without leadership by parties; the view that electioneering can be replaced with direct action campaigns; that the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939) shows unions taking power and making a bottom-up worker-controlled revolution; and how NUMSA’s current actions refute Marxist-Leninist theory; other problems with that theory’s traditional approach to unions; and the implications of all of this for current debates over the form of a new socialist movement in South Africa and elsewhere; and the nature of the South African ruling class and the primary social contradictions.

Lucien van der Walt is co-author of “Black Flame: The revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism” (w.Michael Schmidt, 2009, AK Press) and co-editor of “Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1870-1940” (w. Steve Hirsch and Benedict Anderson, 2010, Brill). He has a long history of involvement in the working class movements. read full story / add a comment

Mandela, the ANC and the 1994 Breakthrough: Anarchist / syndicalist reflections on national liberation and South Africa’s transition
Shawn Hattingh and Lucien van der Walt


The destruction of the apartheid state form, with its odious policies of coercion and racism, was a major triumph for the working class in South Africa and elsewhere, showing that ordinary people can challenge and defeat systems that seem quite unbreakable. Mandela did play a heroic role, but was also the first to admit that “It is not the kings and generals that make history but the masses of the people, the workers, the peasants, the doctors, the clergy." And indeed, it was the black working class, above all, that through struggle tore down many features of apartheid by the late 1980s, such as the pass law system, the Group Areas Act and numerous other odious laws and policies.

The 1994 transition in South Africa was a political revolution, a break with the apartheid and colonial periods of state-sanctioned white supremacy, a “massive advance” in the conditions of the majority. It introduced a new state, based on non-racialism, in which South Africa was to be a multi-racial, multi-cultural but unified country, founded on human rights; welfare and social policy and legislation was transformed; capitalism was kept in place, but despite this, there were very massive and very real changes, political and material, that made qualitative differences in the daily lives of millions of black and working class people. And for millions, it is precisely the association of Mandela with that victory and with those changes that makes him so emotionally powerful.

Yet at the same time, Mandela’s policies and politics had important limitations that must be faced if the current quandary of South Africa, nearly 20 years later, is to be understood. Mandela never sold out: he was committed to a reformed capitalism, and a parliamentary democracy, and unified South Africa based on equal civil and political rights, a project in which black capitalists and black state elites would loom large. These goals have been achieved, but bring with them numerous problems that must be faced up if the final liberation – including national liberation – of South Africa’s working class is to be achieved.

The 1994 breakthrough was a major victory, but it was not the final one, for a final one requires a radical change in society, towards a libertarian and socialist order based on participatory democracy, human needs rather than profit and power, and social and economic justice, and attention to issues of culture and the psychological impact of apartheid.

As long as the basic legacy of apartheid remains, in education, incomes, housing and other spheres, and as long as the working class of all races is excluded from basic power and wealth by a black and white ruling class, so long will the national question – the deep racial / national divisions in South Africa, and the reality of ongoing racial/ national oppression for the black, Coloured and Indian working class – remain unresolved. And so long will it continue to generate antagonisms and conflicts, the breeding ground for rightwing populist demagogy, xenophobia and crime. By contrast, a powerful black elite, centred on the state and with a growing corporate presence, has achieved its national liberation.

Examining the theory and practice of ‘mass’ anarchism and syndicalism, this paper argues against Daryl Glaser’s views that workers’ council democracy fails basic democratic benchmarks and that, envisaged as a simple instrument of a revolution imagined in utopian ‘year zero’ terms, it will probably collapse or end in ‘Stalinist’ authoritarianism—Glaser also argues instead for parliaments, supplemented by participatory experiments. While agreeing with Glaser on the necessity of a ‘democratic minimum’ of pluralism, rights, and open-ended outcomes, I demonstrate, in contrast, that this ‘minimum’ is perfectly compatible with bottom-up council democracy and self- management, as envisaged in anarchist/syndicalist theory, and as implemented by anarchist revolutions in Manchuria, Spain and Ukraine. This approach seeks to maximise individual freedom through an egalitarian, democratic, participatory order, developed as both means and outcome of revolution; it consistently insists that attempts to ‘save’ revolutions by suspending freedoms, instead destroy both. Parliament, again in contrast to Glaser, from this perspective, meets no ‘democratic minimum’, being part of the state, a centralized, unaccountable institutional nexus essential to domination and exploitation by a ruling class of state managers and capitalists. Rather than participate in parliaments, ‘mass’ anarchism argues for popular class autonomy from, and struggle against, the existing order as a means of winning economic and political reforms while—avoiding ‘year zero’ thinking—also building the new society, within and against, the old, through a prefigurative project of revolutionary counter-power and counter-culture. Revolution here means the complete expansion of a bottom-up democracy, built through a class struggle for economic and social equality, and requiring the defeat of the ruling class, which is itself the outcome of widespread, free acceptance of anarchism, and of a pluralistic council democracy and self-management system. read full story / add a comment

O nosso país está numa confusão. A fome, a pobreza, a exploração e a injustiça espreitam.

A classe trabalhadora e os pobres deparam, a cada passo, com os muros altos da injustiça, as cadeias do desemprego e as balas e os cassetetes da polícia.

Os conflitos agitam o país e as esperanças que brilhavam em 1994 estão a desaparecer, envelhecidas, enferrujando sob as águas da ganância, da opressão e da desigualdade; essas esperanças são como um sonho que desaparece quando se desperta para uma realidade sombria.

A questão nacional, as nossas profundas divisões de raça e nacionalidade, continuam sem solução: os políticos, pretos e brancos, pioram ainda a situação com o objectivo de obterem votos. read full story / add a comment

Our country is in a mess. Hunger, poverty, exploitation and injustice stalk the land.

The working class and poor face, at every step, the high walls of injustice, the chains of unemployment, and the bullets and batons of the police.

Conflicts shake the country, and hopes that shone in 1994 are fading, rusting under the waters of greed, oppression, and inequality; those hopes seem like a dream that fades when you awake to a grim reality. read full story / add a comment

It is hard for many activists when the real meaning of the struggle are not concrete achievable gains, but a global worldwide struggle. This week, the concrete and the global merged when the struggle against the destruction of Susiya village recruited international support and forced Israel to delay or even cancel the demolition of the village. Pressure from the imperial powers on Israel was joined by European warning about approaching sanctions against the Israeli banking system for its involvement in the settlers' projects in the occupied West Bank. It seems the erosion of Israeli immunity from paying for its war crimes is collecting momentum. The Israeli media is full of news about B.D.S. - the joint struggle in which thousands of international activists participate, contributing a lot. The heroic Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'sara, and Sheikh Jarrah keep the weekly flame from extinguishing.

L'1 gennaio del 1994 in Chiapas le masse innalzarono la bandiera della ribellione giusto dopo che il mondo capitalista aveva celebrato il suo trionfo sulle rivoluzioni del 20° secolo e si accingeva a lanciare la globalizzazione neoliberista a livello mondiale. Ma la lotta è proseguita con nuove modalità. I sorprendenti sviluppi nella Rojava, in cui le principali potenze imperialiste si trovano a dare sostegno aereo ai Curdi antiautoritari ed anticapitalisti di Siria, sono come uno stormo di passeri che segnano l'arrivo della primavera. In questo imminente cambiamento, si sviluppa il panico delle classi dirigenti sioniste israeliane di fronte alla veloce avanzata della campagna B.D.S.... Non possiamo misurare il contributo di ciascuna lotta al cambiamento, ma sembra che una quota importante spetti alle migliaia di attivisti internazionali che hanno condiviso con noi la lotta unitaria non-armata contro il muro della separazione, contro gli insediamenti e contro l'occupazione.

In my opinion the best attitude towards Rojava is “supportive and being critical” at the same time. Criticizing it alone and keeping distance from it does not benefit our current anarchist movement. This attitude again shows incapability of recognizing the reality of the movement, and would bring the blame of history over us. Meanwhile supporting it without criticizing its negative sides again shows that we do not see this movement realistically. Having this attitude, once the movement fails to meet our demands, we will be very disappointed and keep ourselves a far distance from any movement in the future.

Assistindo o programa Globonews Painel (deste sábado 25 de julho de 2015), cuja bancada era composta por dois economistas vinculados a consultorias privadas e um colega da ciência política igualmente vinculado a outra consultoria, me dei conta que há um tema de fundo nesta crise política. No primeiro mandato de Dilma, o ministro Guido Mantega de fato tentou uma inflexão desenvolvimentista, mas sem uma base social mobilizada e tampouco a predisposição do partido de governo para confrontar a sangria desatada de mais de 40% do orçamento da União para a especulação da agiotagem rentista. No segundo turno de 2014, houve uma eleição plebiscitária cuja chapa vitoriosa aceitou o brete do rentismo e chamara um ministro da Fazenda que apoiara Armínio Fraga para tomar conta do caixa da 8a economia do mundo.

Απαλλοτριώσεις, οικειοποιήσεις χώρων και δομών, κοινωνικά ιατρεία-φαρμακεία, πολιτιστικές και μορφωτικές δομές, συσσωματώσεις αντιστάσεων για δωρεάν παροχή αγαθών, αντιστάσεις εργαζομένων των σωματείων βάσης, αντιαναπτυξιακές πρωτοβουλίες σε επενδύσεις, αντιστάσεις στις εκποιήσεις στέγης, αντιστάσεις στην εκποίηση του δημόσιου πλούτου και των δημόσιων υποδομών, καθώς και άλλες μορφές άμυνας που θα αναπτυχθούν οφείλουν να επεξεργάζονται, προταγματικά, ένα σχέδιο αυτοδυναμίας της κοινωνίας στο να μπορέσει να εκβάλει όλο το χαμένο δημιουργικό της παραγωγικό ιστό.

Occorrerà ricostruire scuola per scuola l'unità dei mesi scorsi, ri-alimentare fiducia e fermezza nella consapevolezza che questa legge si potrà rendere inapplicabile solo con un'opposizione istituto per istituto.

Hoy lloramos la pérdida de amigos y compañeros y renovamos nuestro compromiso con una lucha revolucionaria internacional en su memoria. Al mediodía, en la aldea fronteriza de Suruc, en el Kurdistán Turco, una bomba destrozó los cuerpos de comunistas, socialistas y anarquistas que iban en camino a ayudar en la reconstrucción de Kobane. Decenas de personas fueron asesinadas, muchas otras quedaron heridas. Un militante de Black Rose estaba presente en las preparaciones de la campaña en apoyo a la reconstrucción de Kobane y Rojava, pero no fue alcanzado por la explosión.
