Un movimento globale, quello della tradizione anarchica e sindacalista rivoluzionaria, ha influenzato persone di tutti i ceti sociali. Una delle figure più rappresentative fu Bernard L.E. Sigamoney, nato nel 1888. Il nipote di braccianti indiani a contratto, che emigrarono in Sud Africa nel 1870, divenne un maestro di scuola con una impostazione da classe operaia.

A global movement, the anarchist and syndicalist tradition has influenced people from all walks of life. A notable figure was Bernard L.E. Sigamoney, born in 1888. The grandson of indentured Indian labourers, who arrived in South Africa in the 1870s, he became a school teacher with a working class outlook. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

El Gobierno [de Sudáfrica] ha presentado varias medidas de protección social para aliviar la pobreza. 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

Ο θάνατος του Νέλσον Μαντέλα συνοδεύτηκε από χιλιάδες άρθρα και εκατομμύρια ανθρώπων τα οποία απέδιδαν σε αυτόν φόρο τιμής. Εξυμνώντας τον σωστά, για την εναντίωση του στον φυλετισμό, την συνεισφορά του στους απελευθερωτικούς αγώνες στην N. Αφρική και για την στάση του ενάντια στο καθεστώς του απαρτχάιντ, το οποίο και τον κράτησε φυλακισμένο για 27 χρόνια. Για μεγάλο μέρος της ζωής του ο Νέλσον Μαντέλα υπήρξε η βασική φιγούρα των απελευθερωτικών αγώνων στην N. Αφρική κατά την διάρκεια των δεκαετιών του 1960, 1970 και 1980.

van der Walt, Lucien (2014) “Reclaiming Syndicalism: From Spain to South Africa to Global Labour Today,” Global Labour Journal, vol. 5, no. 2, pp. 239-252.

New article: why it's important to develop a new, transformative vision for trade unions in a world of crisis and inequality; the limits of business unionism and of nationalist, Marxist-Leninist and social democratic approaches; and how anarcho- and revolutionary syndicalism -- as an important historical tradition, as a set of ideas, and as a revolutionary experience, notably in Spain 1936-1939 -- can contribute to the debate.

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

Esse texto dos autores sul-africanos apresenta elementos para uma compreensão da desconhecida história do anarquismo no norte da África. Trazem fatos e personagens de mais de um século de anarquismo em países como Egito, Argélia, Marrocos, Tunísia e Líbia. Continuam, dessa maneira, a mostrar que o anarquismo não se resumiu e nem se resume ao eixo do Atlântico Norte ressaltado nos estudos de referência.

2.png image[Colombia] ¡Con nuestra alegre rebeldía, a conquistar los derechos como clase! 23:09 Sun 03 May by Acción Libertaria Estudiantil (ALE) 0 comments

La urgente necesidad de aprender del pasado para construir nuevos caminos que permitan llenar de victoria y dignidad las luchas de las de abajo, se presenta hoy como una tarea inaplazable tras la fatídica derrota que ha significado para el grueso de las trabajadoras[1] y la población en general la avalancha neoliberal que amenaza con destruir todos los derechos básicos que en su momento la organización y la lucha conquistaron.

Hoy, en medio de incesantes discursos que desde los medios hegemónicos de comunicación reproducen la idea de la prosperidad económica que prepara los caminos para la “paz”, muchas de nosotras vivimos una realidad muy distinta que protagoniza el grueso de las trabajadoras: la miseria y el hambre que ocultan las estadísticas oficiales, la degradación de las condiciones de trabajo que hoy evocan más del 50% (cifras oficiales) de la población laboral, llamada eufemísticamente informal, que se rebuscan la vida trabajando durante horas, a veces días enteros, para poder sobrevivir, soportando la imposibilidad de acceder a un servicio de salud digno y gratuito, a una estabilidad laboral que le permita tener la certeza de un buen mañana, o simplemente a envejecer con las garantías de que la vida de entrega al trabajo será recompensada con estabilidad económica.

Απέναντι τους έχουν από την αρχή την ίδια την Eldorado Gold, το κράτος με κάθε του μορφή, τους κατασταλτικούς μηχανισμούς του, καθώς και τους εργαζόμενους της εταιρίας.

Le projet de loi sur le renseignement dévoilé en mars par le gouvernement vient s'inscrire dans la continuité des lois sécuritaires dont s'arme l’État pour affermir son pouvoir, quelles que soient les tendances politiques des gouvernant-e-s.

Cette loi, en gestation depuis presque un an, fait suite à celle « contre le terrorisme » promulguée en novembre 2014, dont nous avions déjà dénoncé le caractère liberticide et hautement répressif. Le gouvernement s'appuie maintenant sur la pseudo union nationale post-attentats de Paris pour renforcer son discours « antiterroriste », faire valoir la légitimité de cette loi liberticide au nom de la « sécurité », et décider de la faire voter en procédure accélérée.

Alors que chacune des nouvelles mesures économiques (ANI, Pacte de responsabilité, loi sur les retraites, loi Macron, etc.) accentue la casse sociale, détériore nos conditions de travail et de vie, et nous appauvrit un peu plus au profit des classes dominantes que sont les actionnaires et le patronat, l’État durcit et élargit son arsenal législatif, afin d'organiser le contrôle et la surveillance généralisée de la population.

03 de maio de 2014, Bruno Lima Rocha

Vejam o exemplo material da traição de classe deste governo que fez campanha dizendo que não mexeria em nenhum direito dos trabalhadores. O ministro do de Indústria e Comércio de Dilma é Armando Monteiro ex-presidente da Confederação Nacional da Indústria (CNI), senador pelo PTB de Pernambuco. Dilma passou o final de semana anterior ao 1º de Maio preparando um pacote de privatizações indiretas da ordem de 150 bilhões para concessões de portos, aeroportos, rodovias, hidrovias e ferrovias. E mesmo com tantas vantagens o Planalto é incapaz de impor uma condição de negociar com a CNI a manutenção da CLT, considerando que o empresariado acumula ganhos por uma década através do financiamento via BNDES e bancos estatais. A propaganda da CNI que está sendo distribuída via redes sociais, assim como a ofensiva de mídia da Fiesp e demais federações empresariais são a prova cabal da imposição de agenda com aceitação de Dilma e cia.

30 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

Abertura – Na semana de 1º de maio de 2015, vivemos um momento ímpar. A classe trabalhadora pode estar diante da pior derrota na história recente do país desde a traição de João Goulart (quando este optou por não resistir) quando do golpe de 1º de abril de 1964. O absurdo é estarmos vivendo esta circunstância em função de um governo frágil, que fez campanha por esquerda (em especial no 2º turno), ganhou raspando – acertadamente polarizando o país – e já entregara quase tudo ainda no ano de 2014. A conjuntura é tensa porque esta mudança vinda do Projeto Lei 4330 na prática altera – e para o bem da acumulação dos patrões e empregadores, além de rentistas que se beneficiam dos recursos coletivos da União – a estrutura das relações de trabalho no Brasil. Logo, quando uma conjuntura pode influir de modo estrutural e desestruturante, esta se torna estratégica. Eis a arena onde as maiorias brasileiras hoje se encontram.

imageSouth Africa and the DRC: Has Rhodes passed on the baton? Apr 29 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

In the heat of the struggle for statues like that of Rhodes – the arch-symbol of British imperialism – to be pulled down, and in the midst of the horror of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, few people seemed to notice an announcement by Jacob Zuma that South African troops will remain at war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) for another year. Of course, Zuma made this announcement on behalf of the South African ruling class – comprised today of white capitalists and a black elite mainly centred around the state, Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) and ‘traditional’ royal families. In this there was a real irony that while Rhodes’s likeness was falling from its perch at the University of Cape Town, and immigrants from other parts of Africa and Asia were being attacked because of sentiments stoked up by a rehabilitated relic of apartheid (the Zulu king, Zwelithini), the South African ruling class felt brash enough to say they will be continuing their own imperialist war in the DRC.

La urgente necesidad de aprender del pasado para construir nuevos caminos que permitan llenar de victoria y dignidad las luchas de las de abajo, se presenta hoy como una tarea inaplazable tras la fatídica derrota que ha significado para el grueso de las trabajadoras[1] y la población en general la avalancha neoliberal que amenaza con destruir todos los derechos básicos que en su momento la organización y la lucha conquistaron.

Hoy, en medio de incesantes discursos que desde los medios hegemónicos de comunicación reproducen la idea de la prosperidad económica que prepara los caminos para la “paz”, muchas de nosotras vivimos una realidad muy distinta que protagoniza el grueso de las trabajadoras: la miseria y el hambre que ocultan las estadísticas oficiales, la degradación de las condiciones de trabajo que hoy evocan más del 50% (cifras oficiales) de la población laboral, llamada eufemísticamente informal, que se rebuscan la vida trabajando durante horas, a veces días enteros, para poder sobrevivir, soportando la imposibilidad de acceder a un servicio de salud digno y gratuito, a una estabilidad laboral que le permita tener la certeza de un buen mañana, o simplemente a envejecer con las garantías de que la vida de entrega al trabajo será recompensada con estabilidad económica.

Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια διεξάγεται στην Χαλκιδική ένας κοινωνικός αγώνας ενάντια στη καταστροφή του φυσικού περιβάλλοντος της περιοχής από διάφορες εταιρίες εξόρυξης χρυσού οι οποίες μπροστά στα κέρδη τους χρησιμοποιούν κάθε μέσο και είναι διατεθειμένες να μην αφήσουν τίποτα όρθιο. Από την άλλη ένα δυναμικό τοπικό κίνημα που δεν έχει πτοηθεί από τις 300 και πλέον διώξεις και συνεχίζει να παλεύει για τα αυτονόητα, για να ζουν και να δουλεύουν σε μια περιοχή που δεν θα τους σκοτώνει βιολογικά και δεν θα αποτελεί νεκρή γη μέσα σε λίγα χρόνια. Απέναντι τους έχουν από την αρχή την ίδια την Eldorado Gold, το κράτος με κάθε του μορφή, τους κατασταλτικούς μηχανισμούς του, καθώς και τους εργαζόμενους της εταιρίας.

Instead of glorifying the military prowess of the Anzacs, we should be building the working class movement which can sweep away all capitalist States. We need a revolution that will establish libertarian communism, a world of liberty, equality and solidarity, where war and militarism exist no more, except as exhibits in museums and lessons from history.
