north america / mexico / the left / opinion / analysis Sunday March 17, 2013 23:35 byS. Nappalos
The terrain is changing beneath our feet. Since the collapse of the majority of the “official communist” regimes, the world has witnessed both events and ideas that have undermined the former dominant thinking within the left. The Zapatistas, Argentina in 2001, South Korean workers movements, Oaxaca in 2006, the struggles around anti-globalization, and Greece’s series of insurrectionary moments have increasingly presented challenges to traditional left answers to movements and organization. In previous eras Marxist-Leninism was the nexus which all currents by default had to respond to either in agreement or critique. Today, increasingly anarchist practices and theory have come to play this role.

As a member of an anarchist political organization, a friend once told me I in fact was practicing democratic centralism. This was perplexing, because the group had no resembling structures, practices, or the associated behaviors of democratic centralism. However, I was told that since we debated, came to common decisions, and acted on that collective democracy, we were in fact democratic centralist. This kind of productive confusion led to questions about the concept, and why the target of democratic centralism has shifted. This move, the shifting conceptual territory of core concepts of a certain orthodoxy, comes up repeatedly not only with democratic centralism, but also surrounding ideas like crisis, dialectics, the State, and class. The resulting cognitive dissonance caused me to investigate attempts at reinvigorating the concept of democratic centralism (democratic centralist revisionism), and understand truly what it is, where it came from, and how it has been practiced. read full story / add a comment

Le Chili est un pays avec une riche histoire de lutte, et de profondes connections avec d’un côté, la domination, et de l’autre, la solidarité, de l’Amérique du Nord et de l’Europe. Peut-être encore plus que les autres pays d’Amérique du sud, le Chili porte un modèle néolibéral partagé avec les pays impérialistes, et particulièrement les États-Unis, qui ont saigné le Chili pour des siècles. Mais encore, la distance physique comme le paysage politique ont gardé les mouvements de l’État chilien obscurcis pour beaucoup de révolutionnaires dans le Nord.

Chile is a country with a rich history of struggle, and of deep connections to both the domination by and solidarity from North America and Europe. Perhaps more than other Latin American countries, Chile bears a shared neoliberal model with the imperialist countries, and particularly the US, that have been bleeding Chile for centuries. Yet both physical distance and the political landscape have kept the state of Chilean movements obscured from many revolutionaries in the North. [Français] read full story / add a comment

When a revolutionary begins organizing in a shop, the first step is typically to agitate one's coworkers. In our minds we see a step-by-step process wherein our agitation leads to other opportunities, recruitment, committee building, until we have power and an organization. The problem is that for most workplaces, this way of thinking gives the wrong impression. In some workplaces, particularly in production, there's a state of constant agitation and actions burst out before committees ever get built. In other workplaces agitation just never seems to take hold. What do we do in these situations? What do we do when agitation takes years without much visible result, or in places where workers are clearly in the retreat or a passive state? read full story / add a comment

In tempi recenti un certo numero di correnti ideologiche della tradizione comunista libertaria ha ispirato tutta una generazione ad organizzarsi per costruire e riprodurre organizzazioni e lotte intorno ad una riflessione sulla tradizione in proiezione futura. Gran parte di questa teoria ci giunge dal periodo delle più grandi ondate di lotte proletarie e contadine del 20° secolo. Quel periodo ha prodotto una teoria dell'organizzazione basata su una posizione da protagonista all'interno dei punti più alti delle lotte, dei loro successi e delle sconfitte.

The end of the twentieth century was a time of transition. The regime of low-intensity warfare, the dismantling of the welfare state, and neo-liberal privatization schemes ultimately was running its course[1]. The final defeats were to be dolled out across the world in the eventual collapse of finance bubbles, widespread resistance to austerity, and the implosive of the economies of Latin America[2]. Before this was all but said and done, there was the gradual and later meteoric rise and fall of social movements against neo-liberal reforms and the militarism leading to the afghan and Iraq wars. Revolutionaries played an active and disproportionate role in mobilizing the social actors in what would become the largest mobilizations of their kind. read full story / add a comment

In recent times a number of ideological currents from the libertarian communist tradition have inspired a generation to organize, build and reproduce organizations, and struggle around a rethinking of their traditions and future. Much of this theory comes from the period of the greatest waves of proletarian and peasant struggles in the 20th century. That period produced theory of organization based on the protagonists’ position within high points of struggle, its successes and failures. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Political organization is a collective answer to common problems. People organize based on a collective sense of need, and the perspectives and problems encountered in social groups crystallize into organizational forms and moments. This is a general historical trend; even without a theory, organization emerges to meet concrete needs that cannot be solved except by building social forms to address them. read full story / add a comment

El “Colectivo social ¡Salvemos el río Renaico!” es una organización que funciona en base a autogestión y mantiene autonomía política, está conformada por jóvenes y adultos de la comuna de Renaico y surge por la crítica situación por la que atraviesa el río de dicha comuna a raíz de la intervención de la empresa “CMPC”, canales de regadío irregulares, la introducción de bosques de árboles exóticos y la actual instalación de una central hidroeléctrica de paso por parte de la empresa “Agua Viva S.A.”, pero además este colectivo ha adoptado nuevas problemáticas a sus actividades de agitación, como la construcción de la llamada “Ruta Nahuelbuta” que traerá consigo la instalación de un peaje en Coihue (entrada norte) y otro en Tijeral (entrada sur) afectando directamente al bolsillo de los renaiquinos.

La arrolladora victoria electoral de Syriza en los comicios de ayer domingo en Grecia, expresa ante todo el sentimiento mayoritario de rechazo del pueblo griego en contra del traspaso de las deudas de los ricos al pueblo. Pero también expresa un deseo de renovación de la política, en sintonía con esa “indignación” que recorre a la juventud en gran parte del mundo, cansada de la política elitista en beneficio exclusivo del 1% de los súper-ricos, pero que tampoco se siente representada en una izquierda anquilosada, cuyas prácticas, al final de cuentas, no difieren tanto de la politiquería tradicional.

imageJoaquim Levy e o mito do governo em disputa Jan 20 by BrunoL 0 comments

Parece que finalmente caiu a máscara e o poder central no 3º turno negociado expôs a sua verdadeira face – ou ao menos a face hegemônica. Na reportagem de CartaCapital de 18 de janeiro de 2015 (de Carlos Drummond) o ajuste fiscal aplicado pelo ministro da Fazenda Joaquim Levy foi caracterizado como "punhalada fiscal". O bom repórter da publicação que apoia o governo de centro-direita marcado pelo lulismo, ao ouvir fontes como dirigentes de centrais sindicais mais que acostumados a "dialogar" com o governo, as medidas implicam em tentativa de redução de déficit estrutural de 1,2% do PIB. A intenção de Levy e sua equipe (ou a equipe econômica indicada por Dilma, pós-graduada em economia pela Unicamp) como se sabe, intenta "sinalizar ao mercado" e outras balelas indicando que o Estado precisa diminuir seu papel e reforçar seu caráter de classe. Embora a sociedade brasileira seja bastante complexa para um país ocidental e o aparelho de Estado do governo central esteja recheada de interesses diretos e insulamentos tecnocráticos, no fundo o que está em jogo é a definição do caráter de classe do Estado e a diminuição do poder do voto individual na democracia indireta apresentada como melhor saída
