Από τις αρχές του Ιούνη, στη χώρα της Σάμπα, του καρναβαλιού, του ποδοσφαίρου αλλά κυρίως της φτώχειας, έχει ξεσπάσει μια μεγαλειώδης εξέγερση από χιλιάδες Βραζιλιάνους, εναντίον του Μουντιάλ που φέτος το καλοκαίρι θα διοργανωθεί εκεί. Με κύρια συνθήματα “θέλουμε, φαγητό, στέγη, εκπαίδευση και υγεία αντί για γήπεδα και μπάλα”, οι αγωνιζόμενοι πληβείοι των φαβέλας, οι ανέστιοι και οι ιθαγενείς που ξεριζώνονται από τη γη τους - προκειμένου να χτιστούν φαραωνικά γήπεδα ποδοσφαίρου - έχουν εξεγερθεί και με καθημερινές σχεδόν συγκρούσεις με τη πιο διεφθαρμένη αστυνομία του πλανήτη, μάχονται για την αξιοπρέπειά τους και το δικαίωμα στη ζωή ενάντια στη συνεχιζόμενη εξαθλίωση τους. 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.

El anarquismo es parte esencial del movimiento estudiantil chileno. En 1906, con el apoyo del rector radical Valentín Letelier, los libertarios fundaron la Federación de Estudiantes de la Universidad de Chile, la que dirigieron entre 1918 y 1922. Hoy, 93 años después, Melissa Sepúlveda, estudiante de cuarto año de medicina en la Casa de Bello, apuesta por convertirse en la primera presidenta rojinegra de la organización en casi un siglo. read full story / add a comment

En épocas de elecciones los candidatos y sus partidos nos plantean que este es nuestro tiempo de participar y nos convocan a que les firmemos un cheque en blanco por los próximos 4 años. Con esto quieren hacernos creer que día a día nosotros decidimos el rumbo de nuestra realidad y que todas las decisiones que los políticos toman también son nuestra responsabilidad. Pero con esto lo único que intentan es que olvidemos que aún vivimos en una sociedad basada en la opresión de los de abajo en donde el poder está en manos de una minoría privilegiada, donde los ricos y los poderosos votan todos los días, y la gran mayoría sufrimos las consecuencias de sus políticas que solo buscan aumentar sus ganancias y mantener sus privilegios. read full story / add a comment

Le Gouvernement Parti des travailleurs (PT - Partido dos Trabalhadores) du Rio Grande del Sul (Bresil) mène une chasse aux sorcières et s'en prend aux domiciles et aux locaux publics d'organisations gauchistes et de mouvements sociaux.
Dans l'après midi du mardi 1er octovre 2013, l' Ateneu Libertário A Batalha da Várzea, qui est utilisé à des fins politiques et sociales par la Federação Anarquista Gaúcha (FAG) a été attaqué pour la seconde fois par les forces répressives du gouvenement PT de Tarso Genro. La porte des locaux a été fracassée et l'intérieur et les équipements ont été retournés.
Sur une table un message a été laissé qui disait « je suis passé par là et la porte était ouverte. Je voudrais participer à la FAG »
La journée de mardi a débuté par une forte répression déchaînée par le gouvernement et la justice de l'Etat contre des activistes du Bloco de Lutas (Bloc de lutte) et d'organisations gauchistes. Des perquisitions dans des domiciles, des locaux publics gauchistes, et les locaux de campagnes d'autres camarades ont été menées tout au long de la journée.
Il est question au total de plus de 70 mandats de perquisitions devant être exécutés. Le jeudi précédent, pendant la dispersion d'une manifestation publique du Bloco de Lutas, 5 camarades ont été arrêtés et inculpés. Le Gouvernement Tarso veut faire taire les protestations sociales échappant à son contrôle : ne soyez pas trompéEs par ses manipulations rhérotiques, ne soyez pas intimidéEs par les mesures répressives.

Na tarde desta última terça-feira, 1 de outubro de 2013, o Ateneu Libertário A Batalha da Várzea que faz local político-social para a Federação Anarquista Gaúcha foi invadido pelas forças repressivas do governo Tarso do PT pela segunda vez. A porta da sede foi arrombada e teve suas dependências e equipamentos revirados. Por cima de uma mesa foi deixado um bilhete que dizia: “passei por aqui e a porta estava aberta. Gostaria de participar da FAG.”

A terça-feira amanheceu com uma forte operação repressiva desatada pelo governo estadual e a justiça sobre militantes do Bloco de Lutas e organizações de esquerda. Invasão de residências particulares, locais públicos de esquerda e campanas sobre companheiros/as foram levados a cabo durante todo o dia. Falam-se de mais de 70 mandatos judiciais de busca e apreensão ainda por serem executados. Na última quinta-feira, quando da dispersão do ato público do Bloco de Lutas cinco companheiros foram detidos e incriminados.

O governo Tarso quer calar o protesto social que foge do seu controle, que não se engana com seus malabarismos retóricos e nem se amansa com expedientes repressivos. [English] [Français] read full story / add a comment

Dalla scomparsa dei tre coloni da Gush Etzion, (colonia per soli ebrei sotto il controllo totale dello stato di Israele in Cisgiordania), Israele ha posto sotto assedio quattro milioni di palestinesi, bombardando ospedali, scuole, ogni sorta di obiettivi civili, distruggendo e saccheggiando case, rubando, effettuando sequestri, ferendo e uccidendo sia in modo mirato che indiscriminato al di fuori di ogni legislazione internazionale.

Siamo al 13° giorno di guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas. In tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Tutto quello che Israele vuole da questa guerra è rompere l'unità di governo palestinese ed evitare l'accelerazione degli accordi di pace. Il problema causato dalla resa di Hamas, messa in ginocchio dalla crisi economica, alla Autorità Palestinese, deriva dalle scelte del governo egiziano, il quale minaccia molto seriamente quel progetto di divisione permanente dei Palestinesi a cui Israele ha dedicato tanti sforzi. Il solo totale collasso del governo di Hamas nella Striscia di Gaza spaventa Israele più di ogni altra cosa. [English]

textPalestine-Israel - a struggle that never ends between Zionist settler colonialism and the indigenous... 15:25 Sun 20 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

Benjamín Netanyahu dijo que el ejército está dispuesto a legar hasta el final en esta operación. Oficialmente, el “final” significa acabar con los túneles mediante los cuales los prisioneros del ghetto de Gaza pueden obtener alimentos, medicinas y todas esas cosas que les están vedadas por el bloqueo medieval que sufren por parte de Israel, con el respaldo europeo, norteamericano y egipcio. Significa cortar las venas con las cuales Gaza aún puede palpitar, estable en su gravedad, y acelerar la muerte lenta de esta comunidad de cerca de dos millones de seres humanos por hambre, por enfermedad, por sed. Parece que Israel está tomándose muy en serio la aplicación de la “Solución Final” al “problema palestino”.
