Durante demasiado tiempo los principales segmentos de la clase obrera han sido latentes en la ilusión de que el cambio puede ser delegado a organizaciones exteriores o partidos. Cuando nuestras luchas son burocratizadas y delegadas a los demás, perdemos la propiedad sobre ellas y, a su vez perdemos muchos beneficios que se obtienen a través de ellas. Una victoria de la clase obrera sólo puede establecerse si nuestra clase es activa en la lucha que lleva a la victoria. [English] [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

For far too long major segments of the working class have been dormant under the illusion that change can be delegated to exterior organizations or parties. When our struggles are bureaucratized and delegated to others, we lose ownership over them and in turn lose many benefits gained through them. A victory for the working class can only be established if our class is active in the struggle leading to victory. [Italiano] [Castellano] read full story / add a comment

Per troppo tempo i maggiori segmenti della classe lavoratrice se ne sono stati dormienti nell'illusione che il mutamento potesse essere delegato ad organizzazioni esterne o ai partiti. Quando le nostre lotte cadono vittime delle burocrazie e vengono delegate ad altri, noi ne perdiamo la titolarità ed il controllo con la conseguente perdita di molte conquiste ottenute tramite esse. Una vittoria della classe lavoratrice è possibile solo se è la nostra classe a guidare le lotte alla vittoria. [English] read full story / add a comment

When we celebrate May Day, we rarely reflect on why it is a public holiday in Malawi or elsewhere. We want to share the powerful struggles that lie behind its existence and the organisations that created it and kept its meaning alive. May Day, international workers day, started as a global general strike commemorating five anarchist labour organisers executed in 1887 in the US. read full story / add a comment

Anarquía no significa un mundo de anarquistas, sino un mundo en donde todas las personas independientemente de su ideología puedan participar equitativamente, y su autonomía solo sea equiparable con la solidaridad que le rodea. El anarquismo como ideología no solo es vigente como ideología, sino como práctica de transformación hacia una sociedad más diversa y justa. read full story / add a comment

Lightly edited transcript from Lucien van der Walt’s discussion at 1st National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) Political School, September 2013. From his debate with Solly Mapaila, 2nd deputy GS of the South African Communist Party (SACP) on anarcho-syndicalist versus Leninist views of the revolutionary potential of unions. A version was printed in ASR #61 2014, pp. 11-20

Captures van der Walt’s main points: the debate on the anarcho-syndicalist view that revolutionary trade unions, allied to other movements, creating a self-managed worker-controlled socialism through mass education, counter-power and workplace occupations; anarcho-syndicalism as a working class tradition; the anarcho-syndicalist view that unions can potentially be more revolutionary than political parties including Communist Parties, & be revolutionary without leadership by parties; the view that electioneering can be replaced with direct action campaigns; that the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939) shows unions taking power and making a bottom-up worker-controlled revolution; and how NUMSA’s current actions refute Marxist-Leninist theory; other problems with that theory’s traditional approach to unions; and the implications of all of this for current debates over the form of a new socialist movement in South Africa and elsewhere; and the nature of the South African ruling class and the primary social contradictions.

Lucien van der Walt is co-author of “Black Flame: The revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism” (w.Michael Schmidt, 2009, AK Press) and co-editor of “Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1870-1940” (w. Steve Hirsch and Benedict Anderson, 2010, Brill). He has a long history of involvement in the working class movements. 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

Ο πόλεμος που διεξάγει το κεφάλαιο ενάντια στην εργασία μαίνεται γύρω μας. Απέναντι στο πιο υποτιμημένο κομμάτι της εργατικής τάξης βλέπουμε την πιο άγρια πτυχή του: τους εκατοντάδες νεκρούς στα σύνορα, το κυνηγητό από τους μπάτσους, τις επιθέσεις των φασιστών, τα στρατόπεδα συγκέντρωσης μεταναστών. Η αντιμεταναστευτική πολιτική του ελληνικού κράτους δεν είναι τίποτα άλλο από τη διαχείριση και υποτίμηση του εμπορεύματος εργατική δύναμη. Για εμάς, ως κομμάτι της εργατικής τάξης, η αμέριστη υποστήριξη και αλληλεγγύη στους εξεγερμένους μετανάστες της Αμυγδαλέζας, αλλά και σε κάθε έγκλειστο σε στρατόπεδο συγκέντρωσης, είναι κάτι παραπάνω από αυτονόητη. Είναι ταξικό καθήκον.

Depuis quelques années, le mouvement kurde se rapproche des idées libertaires. Même s'il ne s'agit pas d'un mouvement anarchiste, ce changement montre que les idées anarchistes de liberté et d'égalité par la solidarité, nos idées d'horizontalité et de démocratie directe radicale contre l'etat sont valides et fortes, mais également nécessaires pour en finir avec l'héritage autoritaire de la gauche dans les mouvements sociaux. Exprimer notre solidarité avec rojava et le mouvement kurde est de notre responsabilité, parce qu'ils représentent l'espoir dans cette région et parce qu'il s'agit d'une lutte des opprimé-e-s contre les oppresseurs. Les vraies luttes ne sont jamais parfaites mais elles amènent à différentes potentialités de construction d'une société libre. Tout en exprimant notre solidarité avec le mouvement révolutionnaire au rojava, nous comprenons aussi que notre rôle est de continuer à développer les principes centraux de nos idées pour les partager avec les révolutionnaires du monde entier. - Groupe éditorial anarkismo.net [español] [English]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle to the backdrop of Israel no longer hiding its true nature* 01:19 Sun 26 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Throughout the years Israel has tried to neutralize the pressure of more enlightened people by hiding its brute racism and murderous activities by recruiting the memory of the Holocaust as justification for all its heinous acts when revealed. However, as the masquerade has been exposed in recent years and more and more are disillusioned from the "Zionist dream", the restraints are being loosened fast. The rightists preach their extreme racist ideology in the open. The "paramilitarist" settlers get a freer hand. The transfer of Palestinians both within the 1948 borders and these occupied in 1967 is being done in the open. Though it is still restricted mainly to the Israeli area of the Bedouins in the south and the C agricultural regions of the 1967 borders, the "gloves" have been removed. In the same new mode, repression of the non-armed popular struggles has intensified in the last few weeks and we cannot guess what the limit of the new repression mode will be - if at all.

Come era facilmente prevedibile le rassicurazioni diffuse e propagandate a piene mani da politici, affaristi, finanzieri e confindustriali sulla possibilità di riprendersi da quella che veniva chiamata crisi si sono dimostrate una colossale bugia. Con una ingombrante operazione di depistaggio mediatico all'insegna di "dobbiamo abbattere il debito pubblico" o "dobbiamo abbattere le Tasse", "l'Europa ce lo chiede", "dobbiamo rispettare i vincoli del deficit imposto", si è proceduto alla cancellazione quasi totale dei diritti dei lavoratori.

Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια το κουρδικό κίνημα κινείται προς την κατεύθυνση των ελευθεριακών ιδεών. Αν και δεν είναι ένα αναρχικό κίνημα, αυτή η κίνηση είναι ένα σημάδι ότι οι αναρχικές ιδέες της ελευθερίας και της ισότητας μέσα από την αλληλεγγύη, οι ιδέες μας περί οριζοντιότητας και ριζοσπαστικής άμεσης δημοκρατίας καθώς και η ριζοσπαστική κριτική μας ενάντια στο Κράτος δεν είναι μόνο έγκυρες και ισχυρές, αλλά και αναγκαίες σε κινήματα ώστε να ξεφύγουν από την αυταρχική κληρονομιά στην αριστερά. Είναι καθήκον μας να εκφράσουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας στη Rojava και το κουρδικό κίνημα, επειδή αντιπροσωπεύουν την ελπίδα σε αυτήν την περιοχή και επειδή είναι οι καταπιεσμένοι που αγωνίζονται ενάντια στους καταπιεστές. Οι πραγματικοί αγώνες δεν είναι ποτέ τέλειοι, αλλά κουβαλούν διαφορετικές δυνατότητες για μια ελεύθερη κοινωνία. Εκφράζοντας την αλληλεγγύη μας με το επαναστατικό κίνημα στην Rojava σημαίνει ότι κατανοούμε το ρόλο μας στο να συνεχίσουμε να αναπτύσσουμε τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά των ιδεών μας, προκειμένου να εμπνεύσουμε επαναστάσεις και επαναστάτες σε όλο τον κόσμο.

Da alcuni anni il movimento curdo sta vivendo un processo che si muove in direzione libertaria. Sebbene non si tratti di un movimento anarchico, questo processo indica che le idee anarchiche di libertà ed uguaglianza attraverso la solidarietà, attraverso la nostra idea di orizzontalità e di democrazia diretta e radicale ed attraverso la nostra critica radicale contro lo Stato non solo sono forti e valide, ma sono anche necessarie per i movimenti che vogliano operare una rottura con l'eredità autoritaria all'interno della sinistra. E' nostro dovere esprimere la nostra solidarietà con la Rojava e con il movimento curdo, poiché essi rappresentano una speranza in questa regione e perché si ergono come oppressi in lotta contro i loro oppressori. Le lotte reali non sono mai perfette ma portano con sé diversi gradi di potenzialità di realizzazione di una libera società. Nell'esprimere la nostra solidarietà al movimento rivoluzionario nella Rojava ribadiamo che il nostro ruolo è quello di continuare a sviluppare i principi fondamentali delle nostre idee allo scopo di ispirare le rivoluzioni ed i/le rivoluzionar* di tutto il mondo. - Gruppo Editoriale di Anarkismo.net [English]

For some years now the Kurdish movement has been moving in the direction of libertarian ideas. While not an anarchist movement, this move is a sign that anarchist ideas of freedom and equality through solidarity, our ideas of horizontality and radical direct democracy and our radical critique against the State are not only valid and strong, but are also necessary for movements in order to break away from the authoritarian legacy within the left. It is our duty to express our solidarity with Rojava and the Kurdish movement, because they represent hope in this region and because they are the oppressed fighting the oppressors. Real struggles are never perfect but they carry diverse degrees of potential to being about a free society. Expressing our solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Rojava means we understand our role is to continue developing the core tenets of our ideas in order to inspire revolutions and revolutionaries all over the world. - Anarkismo.net Editorial Group [Italiano] [Ελληνικά] [Castellano]

Lucien van der Walt defiende que los sindicatos se han desviado con reivindicaciones tecnocráticas y que la reivindicación de la protección social debería estar conectada a la lucha de la clase trabajadora para reinventar la sociedad.

Hoy 16 de Octubre se celebra a nivel nacional “el día del profesor”, celebración que nace en 1943 y que hasta hace unas décadas se celebraba el día 11 de septiembre; para el año 1974 el día se cambió por el 10 de diciembre, hasta que en 1977 se estableció la actual fecha que va de la mano con la creación del colegio de profesores durante la dictadura.

Ο πόλεμος που διεξάγει το κεφάλαιο ενάντια στην εργασία μαίνεται γύρω μας. Απέναντι στο πιο υποτιμημένο κομμάτι της εργατικής τάξης βλέπουμε την πιο άγρια πτυχή του: τους εκατοντάδες νεκρούς στα σύνορα, το κυνηγητό από τους μπάτσους, τις επιθέσεις των φασιστών, τα στρατόπεδα συγκέντρωσης μεταναστών. Η αντιμεταναστευτική πολιτική του ελληνικού κράτους δεν είναι τίποτα άλλο από τη διαχείριση και υποτίμηση του εμπορεύματος εργατική δύναμη. Για εμάς, ως κομμάτι της εργατικής τάξης, η αμέριστη υποστήριξη και αλληλεγγύη στους εξεγερμένους μετανάστες της Αμυγδαλέζας, αλλά και σε κάθε έγκλειστο σε στρατόπεδο συγκέντρωσης, είναι κάτι παραπάνω από αυτονόητη. Είναι ταξικό καθήκον.

Depuis quelques années, le mouvement kurde se rapproche des idées libertaires. Même s'il ne s'agit pas d'un mouvement anarchiste, ce changement montre que les idées anarchistes de liberté et d'égalité par la solidarité, nos idées d'horizontalité et de démocratie directe radicale contre l'etat sont valides et fortes, mais également nécessaires pour en finir avec l'héritage autoritaire de la gauche dans les mouvements sociaux. Exprimer notre solidarité avec rojava et le mouvement kurde est de notre responsabilité, parce qu'ils représentent l'espoir dans cette région et parce qu'il s'agit d'une lutte des opprimé-e-s contre les oppresseurs. Les vraies luttes ne sont jamais parfaites mais elles amènent à différentes potentialités de construction d'une société libre. Tout en exprimant notre solidarité avec le mouvement révolutionnaire au rojava, nous comprenons aussi que notre rôle est de continuer à développer les principes centraux de nos idées pour les partager avec les révolutionnaires du monde entier. - Groupe éditorial anarkismo.net [español] [English]

Come era facilmente prevedibile le rassicurazioni diffuse e propagandate a piene mani da politici, affaristi, finanzieri e confindustriali sulla possibilità di riprendersi da quella che veniva chiamata crisi si sono dimostrate una colossale bugia. Con una ingombrante operazione di depistaggio mediatico all'insegna di "dobbiamo abbattere il debito pubblico" o "dobbiamo abbattere le Tasse", "l'Europa ce lo chiede", "dobbiamo rispettare i vincoli del deficit imposto", si è proceduto alla cancellazione quasi totale dei diritti dei lavoratori.

Desde algunos años, el movimiento kurdo se está acercando a las ideas libertarias. Aunque no se trata de un movimiento anarquista, este cambio muestra que las ideas anarquistas de libertad e igualdad a través de la solidaridad, nuestras ideas de horizontalidad y de democracia directa radical en contra del Estado no solo son validas y fuertes, sino que son también necesarias para que los movimientos sociales acaben con la herencia autoritaria de la izquierda. Expresar nuestra solidaridad con Rojava y el movimiento kurdo es nuestra responsabilidad, pues representan la esperanza en esta región y porque es una lucha de los oprimidos en contra de los opresores. Las verdaderas luchas no son nunca perfectas pero llevan a diversos potencialidades de construcción de una sociedad libre. Mientras expresamos nuestra solidaridad con el movimiento revolucionario en Rojava entendemos también que nuestro papel es seguir desarrollando los principios centrales de nuestras ideas para compartirlas con los y las revolucionari@s en el mundo. - Grupo editorial de Anarkismo.net [English]
