Since Hugo Chávez first took office, he and his party have won 13 of 14 national elections, mainly because they greatly improved the living standards of the majority of voters in Venezuela. Since 2004, after the economy recovered from the devastating opposition oil strike, poverty has been cut by half and extreme poverty by more than 70 percent. read full story / add a comment

El 30 de mayo Dan Rather, uno de los periodistas más famosos de EE. UU. Anunció que el presidente venezolano Hugo Chávez iba a morir “en un par de meses como mucho”. Cuatro meses después, Chávez no sólo está vivo y en campaña electoral, sino con las mayores expectativas de ser reelegido el domingo. Tal es el grado de tergiversación cuando se trata de Venezuela, probablemente el país sobre el que más se miente en el mundo, y del que un periodista puede decir casi de todo sobre Chávez o su gobierno sin que le reporte ningún problema, siempre que lo que diga sea negativo para el país o su presidente. Peor aún, Rather se refiere a Chávez como “el dictador”, un término que pocos científicos políticos que conozcan el país tolerarían, por no decir ninguno. read full story / add a comment

El proceso de lucha a sido largo y difícil, con constantes intentos de desalojo, violencia desmedida por la fuerza publica que utiliza armas de fuego contra las comunidades y el asesinato de Lorenzo Largo el 29 de noviembre del 2007, y del joven Guillermo Pavi el 10 de abril del 2015, ambos asesinados por agentes del ESMAD. "La resistencia del maíz" recoge los acontecimientos vividos por las comunidades en el ultimo intento de desalojo realizado el 14 de octubre del 2016, en donde fueron destruidos los asentamientos y los cultivos de maíz de las comunidades, pero se registra también el proceso de lucha y resistencia, la reconstrucción de los asentamientos y la realización de nuevos cultivos de maíz que, además de presentarse como una alternativa a la crisis alimentaria para las comunidades, su cosecha es una victoria del movimiento indígena que continua haciendo uso y posesión de las tierras.

Σύντροφοι και συντρόφισσες, από αυτή τη μικρή γωνιά του πλανήτη παρακολουθούμε το θαρραλέο αγώνα σας. Οι λαοί της Τουρκίας έχουν μακρά και ένδοξη ιστορία στον αγώνα ενάντια στο φασισμό, που στιγμή δεν έχει αφήσει να ανασάνουν ελεύθερα τα όμορφα μέρη σας και τις γειτονιές σας. Γνωρίζουμε ότι όχι μόνο αντιμετωπίζετε θαρραλέα την καταστολή, αλλά οικοδομείτε καινούριους κόσμους σε εξαιρετικά δύσκολες συνθήκες. Αντλούμε έμπνευση και κουράγιο από τον αγώνα σας. Ξέρουμε ότι με τον αξιοπρεπή αγώνα που δίνετε δεν θα επιτρέψετε να περάσει αυτό το κοινωνικό πείραμα. Σας στέλνουμε την πιο ζεστή αγκαλιά μας.

Γιατί θα καταλάβουν τι θα πει να κλείνεις τον δρόμο σε αντιφασίστες, να προστατεύεις τα ναζιστικά καθάρματα και να φυλάς τους εκμεταλλευτές. Θα το καταλάβουν κι από την καλή κι από την ανάποδη!

imageAnarchist Lens: The Green Experiment Feb 28 by Kevin Doyle 0 comments

In this post, Anarchist Lens returns to the subject of electoral politics and how it demobilises the struggle for change. The example of the German Greens is examined. In the late 70s, Die Grünen (The Greens) emerged as a new force on the German and European left. Radical and activist led, they claimed to be aware of the pitfalls of the electoral process and were, in their own words, an ‘anti-party party’. Yet, in less than twenty years, they had capitulated on all their key principles: tolerating nuclear power, rubber-stamping German participation in NATO and even agreeing to capitalist-friendly market reforms. How did this transformation come about?

Μόνο μια ριζοσπαστική αλλαγή –μια νέα Αφρική βασισμένη στην ελευθεριακή και σοσιαλιστική ανάπτυξη– μπορεί να σπάσει αυτό τον φαύλο κύκλο. Αυτό περιλαμβάνει τόσο τον αγώνα ενάντια στις αφρικανικές ελίτ, όσο και ενάντια στον ιμπεριαλισμό. Και αυτό με τη σειρά του απαιτεί μια ρήξη με τις ιδέες του «τρίτου κόσμου», που αγνοούν τα ταξικά ζητήματα μέσα στην Αφρική και με τον εθνικισμό, που καλεί σε ενότητα όλους τους Αφρικανούς – μία άνευ ουσίας ενότητα μεταξύ των τοπικών καταπιεστών και των θυμάτων τους. Χωρίς ένα προοδευτικό αριστερό και αναρχικό σχέδιο, οι απογοητεύσεις και η δυστυχία των μαζών απλώς θα καλυφθεί από κενές ιδέες (η «δημοκρατία») ή αντιδραστικά κινήματα (όπως το Boko Haram) και συναισθήματα (ο ρατσισμός και το μίσος προς τους μετανάστες).

In these grim times, both globally and locally, it is important to reaffirm the centrality of workers’ education, and the need for a strong working-class movement. Ordinary people have immense potential to change the world, and steer it in a more progressive direction than that promised by capitalists, populists and the political establishment, writes Lucien van der Walt.
