international / anarchist movement / review Thursday April 21, 2016 06:08 by Wayne Price   text 7 comments (last - wednesday june 01, 2016 21:13)
Within the anarchist movement there are conflicting trends. Laurence Davis has written an essay which defends the reformist “exodus” trend in anarchism against the revolutionary "class-struggle” trend. In large part, he does this by defending Uri Gordon’s and David Graeber’s views against my criticisms. This is my response.

There is a new approach on the U.S. Left, which rejects both capitalism and state socialism. In several ways it resembles anarchism. It has been promoted by The Next System Project, and has been critiqued recently by Sam Gindin--who makes some insightful comments, but also demonstrates limitations. read full story / add a comment

In recent decades, there have been efforts to "rehabilitate" the U.S. Communist Party as an historical model for the Left. Anti-authoritarian socialists and anarchists find this troubling. Whle the CP did some good things it also did some very bad things. A brief summary of its history demonstrates that and explains why this is. read full story / add a comment

Speth's The Bridge at the Edge of the World is shown to represent a trend among left-environmentalists: They show that the global ecological crisis is due to capitalism's grow-or-die drive. Yet they do not go on to call for the replacement of capitalism. Unlike ecological radicals, they claim that capitalism could be tweaked to no longer have a need to grow and accumulate. read full story / add a comment

Theorists of the climate-justice movement have been raising decentralist ideas as part of their programs for an ecologically-balanced society. This ecological program means more local democracy, workers’ management of industry, consumer coops, and federations of radically-democratic institutions. Such ideas revive the decentralist ideas of anarchism.

For months there has been a heated discussion over charges that Michael Schmidt, author of well-known books about anarchism, is actually a fascist and "white nationalist." Now that the main statements are out on both sides, I have been waiting for an evaluation by some panel of reputable anarchist activists and theorists. As this has not happened, I am publishing my own conclusions. read full story / add a comment

Murray Bookchin was an influential and prolific writer and thinker on anarchism. Recently his work has been in the news. While he made significant contributions, he made a major error in rejecting the working class as important for an anarchist revolution. This article reviews why he believed this and why, on the contrary, the working class must be a major force for a successful anarchist revolution. read full story / add a comment

They promote "research" blaming immigrants for a lack of jobs. Liberals want "comprehensive" immigration policies which will also increase repression. read full story / add a comment

A response to Crimethinc's statement, "Why We Don't Make Demands." Wayne argues that revolutionary anarchists should propose to movements which they are part of to raise militant, radical, demands. Done in dialogue with the people, it moves the struggle forward and challenges the state and the capitalist class. read full story / add a comment

The aftereffects of the Second World War are still being felt. While very popular, it was an inter-imperialist war, a struggle for world domination. But it also included popular struggles against fascism, for national independence, democratic rights, and the possibility of socialist revolution. At their best, anarchists and other revolutionary socialists looked for ways to be part of this working class and people’s war.” Analyzing the war, and thinking through its issues, may help to prepare revolutionary anarchists for future upheavals.

international / the left / review Saturday May 23, 2015 02:33 by Wayne Price   image 1 image
Istvan Meszaros, a well-known Marxist theorist, has material which can be interesting to anarchists. He has an insightful analysis of the current stage of capitalism and the state. He makes Marx's "withering away of the state" central to his program, and he rejects electoral party politics. But paradoxically, he also supports the late Hugo Chavez's attempted use of the Venezuelan state to move to socialism. How can we understand this and respond to it? read full story / add a comment

A review of David Graeber's book, Revolutions in Reverse. The author has some intelligent insights, such as the importance of recognizing where the justice movements have won victories. In other ways his thinking is sometimes muddled, as he tries to both reject the need for an insurrectionary revolution and, at the same time, to advocate it as part of his perspective of reversed revolutions. read full story / add a comment

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. read full story / add a comment

Αυτές οι μεταρρυθμίσεις είναι κομμάτι της ριζικής αναμόρφωσης του εκπαιδευτικού συστήματος που επιχειρείται την τελευταία δεκαετία στο Μεξικό και στόχο έχει την κατάργηση του δημόσιου χαρακτήρα της εκπαίδευσης.

severas.jpg image[Colombia] Manifiesto Marika 10:37 Tue 21 Jun by Colectiva Severas Flores 0 comments

Somos la Colectiva Severas Flores. Somos colectiva como grupo de personas, no como masa uniforme, sino como conjunto heterogéneo, como multiplicidad de cuerpos, existencias, sentires y luchas que se atreven al encuentro; y somos colectiva en la medida que resistimos al lenguaje patriarcal desde el ejercicio de denuncia de la masculinización de las lenguas, desde el reconocernos como palabras y espacios en disputa, construcción y deconstrucción.

Somos libertaria porque asociamos lo libertario con la tradición anarquista de la eliminación de todas las formas de opresión; entendemos lo libertario como la posición que lucha por la libertad de “ser” con otres, de existir en colectivo, de destruir todas las formas autoritarias en que se intenta encapsular el poder.

Somos severas flores porque nos re-apropiamos de una burla, de un chiste, de un insulto, de una violencia naturalizada, solapada, que esconde un profundo sexismo hacia cuerpos considerados masculinos al proponerlos débiles, femeninos, errados, insuficientes. Somos flores, flores tan fuertes como delicadas. Somos severas al pararnos duro, echar raíces contra la explotación y resistir siendo nosotres mismes. Entendemos la feminidad no como sinónimo de debilidad o pasividad sino como uno de tantos colores que nos componen y que la monocromía patriarcal quiere negar. Las flores crecen a pesar de todo, son el esfuerzo constante de una planta para sacar semilla, contienen los órganos sexuales de ellas y son parte del equilibrio natural interespecie. Al mismo tiempo las flores transitan, son efímeras; tan efímeras como nuestras vidas y burlan el dogma, la rigidez y el control que se quiere imponer en nuestras formas de verlas, pues están sujetas al cambio, a la mutación. Las flores rompen el sistema de prejuicios, negando lo binario y proponiendo lo múltiple, dado que muchas son hermafroditas, diversas, subversivas: No sólo son “bellas”, hay flores horribles que se cagan en los cánones de belleza racistas y occidentales; no todas huelen “bien”, algunas apestan a rebeldía y sueños de libertad; no todas son débiles, algunas matan, incomodan e irritan si no se les respeta.

He died 'with his boots on' - he seemed to have risen from a chair, with an open book and a glass of something interesting on the table, collapsed onto the floor and was found a day or two later.

Στην ΕΣΕ λειτουργούμε πέρα από συντεχνιακές λογικές και δεν διακρίνουμε ανάμεσα σε εργαζόμενους του δημόσιου και του ιδιωτικού τομέα, σε έλληνες και μετανάστες, σε άντρες και γυναίκες. Για τον κόσμο της εργασίας, η ελευθερία δεν νοείται σε ένα περιβάλλον διακρίσεων που γίνονται με βάση τη φυλή, το φύλο, το χρώμα, το είδος, την ηλικία, τις σεξουαλικές προτιμήσεις, τα σωματικά χαρακτηριστικά. Κοινός αντίπαλος μας είναι το σύστημα του καπιταλισμού και η εκμετάλλευση. Καθημερινά θέτουμε τους όρους ενός συνεχούς αγώνα για τη βελτίωση των ζωών μας και την απελευθέρωση τους από την καταπίεση.

26 de junio 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

En este primero artículo de la serie de la nueva-derecha, desarrollo la idea, de cómo el censo común fue siendo colonizado por ideas reaccionarias, que terminan siendo un modo reactivar las tímida políticas, de reconocimiento promovidas por el gobierno temporalmente alejado y el pacto *lulista iniciado en 2003. El rastro de este reaccionarismo social y de penetración en la cultura y en la religión, es un espectáculo dantescos de misoginia, de homofobia y uno rechazo “medieval” a los avances obtenidos dentro de la Constitución Federal de 1988.

textMaking sense of the Brexit tide of reaction and the reality of the racist vote Jun 28 by Andrew 0 comments

The Leave / Brexit vote in the referendum came in the end as a surprise, a narrow win for Remain was expected. This may be because the core Leave vote was in the run-down white working class communities of the now desolate English and Welsh industrial zones. A population trapped in conditions of long-term unemployment and poverty who no one really pays much attention to anymore. Some on the left have seized on the makeup of this core vote to suggest that there was some progressive element to the Brexit vote despite the campaign being led by racist hatemongers and wealthy US-oriented neoliberals. Mostly that’s a mixture of wishful thinking and post hoc justification for having called for a Leave vote in the first place, but it is true that a section of the working class, C2DEs in marketing speak, voted to Leave in close to a 2:1 ratio. Is the class composition of that vote enough to automatically make it progressive regardless of content? And what does it tell us that a section of the radical left seems to think the answer to that question is yes, that it is enough to be anti-establishment?
