The leader of the International Marxist Tendency has written an attack on anarchism from his Trotskyist perspective. He makes some correct criticisms of some versions of anarchism, in relation to those who reject revolution or political organization. But he attempts to defend the idea of a "workers' state" by limited quotes from Lenin and by mistating the history of the Russian revolution. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Il leader della International Marxist Tendency ha scritto un attacco contro l'anarchismo da una prospettiva trotzkysta. Alcune sue critiche a certe correnti dell'anarchismo risultano corrette, in particolare in relazione a coloro che rifiutano la rivoluzione o l'organizzazione politica. Ma egli poi cerca di difendere l'idea di uno "stato operaio" ricorrendo a limitate citazioni di Lenin e mistificando la storia della rivoluzione russa. [English] read full story / add a comment

Anarchism and the philosophy of pragmatism can add to each other. Pragmatism is explained as a philosophy of active experience and experimental naturalism. Pragmatism advocates radical, decentrlized democracy and industrial self-management, which is very close to anarchism. However pragmatists have often opposed reformist perspectives to revolution. The case for revolution is presented. read full story / add a comment

This essay is slightly expanded from one which was rejected by a US anarchist magazine for political reasons. It deals with a disagreement among activists: Should we propose that the movement raise a program of demands? I think that anarchists should, but with a more libertarian-democratic version than the liberals and state socialists. The essay is followed by a response to the political points raised by the editors of the anarchist journal. read full story / add a comment

This is a review of Ronald D. Tabor, The Tyranny of Theory: A Contribution to the Anarchist Critique of Marxism (2013).
Marxism, like anarchism, came out of movements for democracy, socialism, and working class liberation. Its goals were for a free, cooperative, classless, stateless, and nonoppressive society. Yet Marxism ended up establishing totalitarian, mass murdering, state capitalist, regimes. This is the paradox of Marxism. Why did this happen? An attempt to analyze this is made in this new book by Ron Tabor, a former Marxist and now an anarchist. Wayne discusses Ron's ideas. read full story / add a comment

Marxists argue that anarchists really do advocate a state, or something indistinguishable from one, but do not admit it. But what anarchists advocate is the overturning of the existing state and the creation of a new, nonstate, association of councils, assemblies, and a popular mililtia. There is no such thing as a "workers' state." read full story / add a comment

For Black History Month: In 1941, the African-American labor leader, A. Philip Randolph made a call for a national demonstration by African-Americans in Washington, D.C. The demonstration never occurred, because of sabotage by White and Black liberals. But the organizing for it, and the movement behind it, continuing during World War II, had a big impact on U.S. Black people. It was an important influence preparing for the Civil Rights and Black Liberation struggles of the 1950s and ‘60s. read full story / add a comment

Αξιολόγηση του βιβλίου του David Porter, Κοιτάζοντας στο Νότο – Γάλλοι Αναρχικοί και Αλγερία - Από το 1954 έως το 1962, ένας βίαιος πόλεμος μαίνεται μεταξύ των λαών της Αλγερίας και του γαλλικού κράτους. Οι αναρχικοί στη Γαλλία έπαιξαν ένα μικρό αλλά σημαντικό ρόλο αντιδρώντας στον αποικιακό πόλεμο της κυβέρνησης. Οι δραστηριότητες και οι απόψεις των αναρχικών, μαζί με τη στάση τους προς την μεταπολεμική Αλγερία, παρουσιάζονται σε αυτό το εξαιρετικό βιβλίο. Οι τρόποι που οι Γάλλοι αναρχικοί αντιτίθενται στον πόλεμο και οι διαφορετικές απόψεις που είχαν πάνω σ’ αυτόν, μπορούν να βοηθήσουν τους σημερινούς αντιεξουσιαστές (στις ΗΠΑ και αλλού) να προβληματιστούν σχετικά με τους αγώνες κατά της εθνικής καταπίεσης.

There has been a flood of books about the Great Recession of 2007-2009 and the limping "recovery" which we are now living through - which the liberal economist Paul Krugman has called a "depression". Of the many works, one of the more interesting is by Foster & McChesney (2012). Among its several virtues are its clarity of style, rare among economists of any orientation. The chapters began as separate articles in the left magazine, "Monthly Review", of which Foster is the editor. (This causes some repetition.) It is a continuation of the previous book, The Great Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences (Foster & Magdoff, 2009; reviewed by me: Price, 2010). read full story / add a comment

Book review of David Graeber's "Debt: The First 5,000 Years." A good history of debt, credit, and money. Weaknesses in seeing debt as central to economic development, downplaying role of human labor, exploitation, and class struggle. This leads to a misunderstanding of the recent economic crisis, and to a limited and inadequate vision of a post-capitalist future. read full story / add a comment

La guerra di Israele su Gaza intendeva indebolire Hamas ma renderlo indipendente dall'Autorità in Cisgiordania. Un mese e mezzo è passato ed Israele non riesce a fermare il lancio di razzi di Hamas su Israele. Hamas ha chiesto ad alta voce la rimozione dell'assedio ed il primo ministro israeliano non ha avuto l'appoggio necessario dalla sua coalizione per il necessario compromesso. Per diminuire le perdite e per salvare la faccia Israele con il sostegno degli USA stanno ora delegando la questione a quel Consiglio di Sicurezza dell'ONU di cui Israele non si è curato per molti anni.

The war Israel started with the Hamas was intended to keep it weaker but independent of the west bank authority. A month and a half and Israel cannot stop the Hamas firing of rockets on Israel. The Hamas raised its demand about the lifting of the siege (closer) and the Israeli prime minister failed go get the support of his coalition for the needed compromise. To diminish the losses and to save face Israel with US backing are passing the decision to the UN security council the Israeli ruling elite evaded successfully so many years. The mounting economic pressures create cracks in the Israeli ruling elite and even the populist coalition party head - the foreign minister, start to promote the end of the 1967 occupation. And the joint popular grass root struggle continue - within Israel at the Arkib Bedouins as focus, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Neby Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills. [Italiano]

sorrymigrantx.jpg imageIreland - Migrant X refused an abortion and forced to have a C-section 22:31 Thu 21 Aug by Andrew 0 comments

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for.

Bruno Lima Rocha, 28 de agosto de 2014

No meio da corrida eleitoral de 1º turno, onde a 7ª economia do mundo vai decidir seu destino consultando a vontade e desinformação da 79ª sociedade mundial em índice de IDH, é preciso fazer uma série de reflexões. Para tal, precisamos ir além da denúncia do esvaziamento da democracia em sua versão liberal e indireta. Entendo que vivemos um problema estruturante, que tem relação direta com dois fenômenos. O primeiro passa pela individualização do cotidiano, com tarefas que se multiplicam e tempos esgotados. O capitalismo em sua era informacional não dá tempo hábil para a vida coletiva e menos ainda para as experiências políticas massivas. Quando isto ocorre, temos uma “crise”, como em junho de 2013. Saudável “crise” por sinal.
