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 gradual increase in international pressure which the Israeli high court verdict is that is a criminal act for Israeli to promote causing already much of damages in the economy of occupation and concern of the Zionist-colonialist Israeli ruling Elite. We see here again how small number of activists can initiate a turn in the course of history when it is applied in the ripe cross-road.

Además al terciarizar la ejecución de las políticas públicas ha generado altos niveles de subcontratación en el área.

The documentary Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre (2014, Nickos Ventouras) narrates one of the “bleakest and blackest” chapters in American labor history, the Ludlow Massacre.
A 101 years earlier, on April 20, 1914, in Ludlow, Colorado, USA, a strike for basic labor rights by exploited miners and their families, mostly immigrants, was violently ended by state militia. In the fight, the strikers’ tent colony was machine-gunned and burned to the ground, leaving over twenty people dead, including women and children.

En las últimas dos semanas de marzo comandos de infantería del ejército turco (el segundo mayor contingente militar de los países miembros de la OTAN) atacaron bases guerrilleras de las fuerzas del Partido de los Trabajadores del Kurdistán (PKK), rompiendo una tregua unilateral bastante duradera iniciada por la izquierda kurda. Los medios masivos internacionales ignoraron solemnemente el hecho, cuidando de no afectar la imagen de Turquía delante de las autoridades occidentales.

imageNegociando la derrota política, militar y moral de la insurgencia Apr 20 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 1 comments

El ataque en Buenos Aires, Cauca, de una estructura de las FARC-EP en contra de una unidad contra-insurgente de élite del Ejército, la Fuerza de Tarea Conjunta Apolo, que dejó como saldo 11 soldados muertos y varios heridos de consideración, ha puesto nuevamente al rojo vivo el debate en torno al proceso de paz. El sector uribista y el sector santista de la oligarquía se han unido para declarar, con gran estridencia, que esto es una violación intolerable al Derecho Internacional Humanitario (DIH), que los “terroristas” no han cumplido su palabra y han roto el cese al fuego unilateral, que las acciones militares deben arreciar. Santos ha ordenado reanudar los bombardeos, tras un mes de haber sido suspendidos (mientras proseguía la ofensiva militar en el terreno) y apenas a escasos días de haber decretado que la suspensión de éstos se prolongaría por un mes más. Situación que, aunque de momento no pone a peligrar la mesa de negociaciones de paz, sí nos demuestra que estamos muy lejos del punto de no retorno, refutando algunas visiones excesivamente optimistas. ¿Es necesario insistir en que estos eventos comprueban una vez más que la fórmula de negociar en medio de las hostilidades se vuelve cada día más insostenible?
