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

The intermediate level is where groupings of conscious workers unify around some basic unity for coordination and struggle in the mass organization. read full story / add a comment

Se trata de varias organizaciones de militantes cuya visión libertario o revolucionario pasa por construir poder popular para poder llegar a una sociedad socialista y libertaria. Es uno de los primeros pasos de un largo camino que se abre en la Península Ibérica.

imageO 1° de Maio em meio à crise final do projeto “Democrático-Popular” May 03 by Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira 0 comments

Os 14 anos de hegemonia do projeto democrático popular chegam a sua saturação final. Nestes últimos anos a esquerda não governista esteve em meio a uma luta para conformar uma alternativa a esse bloco. Cada setor, cada organização concebeu, a sua maneira, o que seria essa alternativa. Mas no fim, não foi capaz de presenciar alguma proposta que disputasse com o bloco governista nas lutas populares. Isso, por sua vez, não tirou de cena o surgimento de inúmeras experiências que transbordam ensinamentos e avanços difíceis de medir precisamente. Das “greves selvagens” e das revoltas nas obras do PAC, passando pelas jornadas de junho em 2013, a luta por moradia nas grandes cidades e a recente onda de ocupações de escolas por estudantes secundaristas em São Paulo, Goiânia, Rio de Janeiro e Belém mostram que em meio às trevas da ofensiva reacionária, também vai se afirmando uma nova geração de lutadores e lutadoras. Uma geração que não se formou pelas estruturas tradicionais de luta e organização que a esquerda construiu nas últimas décadas, por isso mesmo, uma geração refratária aos métodos e à cultura destas estruturas.

textWhy May Day? An African Working Class Perspective May 02 by Leroy Maisiri 0 comments

In South Africa, the black working class majority is gripped by the rough hands of its ruling class, made up of a cold combination of black state elites and white capitalist elites, who choke the very life out of her. blazing but blinded. In days like these it is important to remember our heroes, our champions of past years, to remember the stories of Ma Josie Mpama, who wanted nothing more, than to see the working class mature, to explode like landmines under the feet of the oppressive system that has spent centuries trampling over us. The other day, while deep in thought, I felt the room grow more still, filled with clarity. The voices of Lucy Parsons, Josie Mpama and other heroes pierced my very being. Their voices reminded me of the dream, the obtainable goal. To remember that we, the working class billions, can be more than what we are now, that we can awake, from our half-life, that we can be more than the shares and stocks that the system has nailed to our backs.

La forma en la qual es configura i s’organitza el capital al segle XXI ha suposat una gran transformació que tendeix a formes més globalitzades, enxarxades, descentralitzades, altament diversificades i disperses que els moviments sindical i social encara no han pogut contrarestar efectivament. La particularitat que vivim al sud d’Europa és la terciarització de la nostra economia on l’equivalent a les antigues fàbriques fabrils són els calls centers, l’hostaleria, les cadenes de menjar ràpid, les empreses de logística i altres formes d’activitat econòmica no vinculades a la producció. La indústria que queda a Catalunya perd la seva centralitat i es troba financiaritzada. És evident, que el model de conflicte laboral i cultura sindical heretat de la transició ha quedat completament desbordat per aquesta tendència i la reestructuració constant del capitalisme.
