international / anarchist movement / review Thursday April 21, 2016 06:08 byWayne 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

In the US, right-wing politicians have attacked all immigrants, Latinos, and Arabs and Muslims, by whipping up nativist and racist hysteria. 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

Wayne Price has defended Marx's critique of political economy as useful for revolutionary anarchists. In the past many anarchists have agreed. But some have not, such as Kropotkin. Several topics in Marx's economic theory are discussed, criticisms reviewed, and responses given. 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.

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

1980 darbesinden bu yana, bu topraklardaki devlet varlığının kaçınılmaz bir siyasi gerçeği olan darbe, 36 yıl sonra 15 Temmuz’unu 16’sına bağlayan gece vuku buldu. İstanbul ve Ankara merkezli gerçekleşen askeri hareketlilikte pek çok devlet binası bir süreliğine bloke edildi. Ankara’da savaş uçaklarının havalanması ve İstanbul’da köprülerin askerler tarafından trafiğe kapatılmasıyla başlayan darbe, Genelkurmay Başkanı’nın rehin alınması, sokaklarda tank ve silah seslerinin yükselmesiyle devam etti. MİT Müsteşarlığı binasından TBMM’ye birçok devlet binası F16’lar ve helikopterlerle vuruldu; pek çok yerde asker ve polis arasında silahlı çatışmalar yaşandı. Bu gelişmeleri izleyen süreçte devlet televizyonunun yayını kesilerek canlı yayında “Yurtta Sulh Konseyi” imzası taşıyan darbe bildirisi okundu. “5 saatlik darbe” sona erdiğinde yüz üzerinde asker, 80 üzerinde polis ve 80 üzerinde darbe karşıtı protestocu öldü. Aralarında çok sayıda yüksek rütbeli komutanın bulunduğu 2839 asker gözaltına alındı.

The coup, which has been an inevitable reality of the state presence in this geography since the military coup of 1980, arose after 36 years, on the night of July 15. Many state buildings were blocked for a few hours during the military mobilisation based in Istanbul and Ankara. The coup started with flypast of fighter jets in Ankara and blocking of bridges in Istanbul by soldiers, and continued with taking hostage of chief of general staff and tank noise and gun shots in the streets. Many state buildings were shot by F16s and helicopters including the parliament building and the headquarters of National Intelligence Organisation; There were clash of arms in many places between soldiers and police. Following the events, national state television broadcast was cut and the coup declaration signed 'Peace at Home Council'' was read. When the ''5 Hour Coup'' ended, more than one hundred soldiers, more than eighty police officers and more than eighty anti-coup protesters died. 2839 soldiers, among them many high ranked ones, were taken into custody.

El aborto ha sido una práctica cultural milenaria realizada a lo largo de la historia entre, por y para mujeres de modo soberano y con autonomía de cualquier autoridad. En el caso de Chile es importante recordar que ya en 1931 el aborto terapéutico como derecho social se encontraba regulado, para luego ser arrebatado en 1975 y ratificada dicha prohibición en 1989 por la dictadura cívico-militar, perpetuando el carácter restringido y autoritario de la actual supuesta democracia.

Denunciamos a todos los partidos de la derecha y la Nueva Mayoría, sin dejar afuera al Partido Comunista y su rol desarticulador del movimiento social. Este es un acto político de protesta, exigiendo el retiro a la reforma de la educación superior, que no responde a las demandas del movimiento estudiantil y promueve el mercado en la educación.

Το κράτος δεν παρέχει μία εναλλακτική οδό στον καπιταλισμό ούτε ο καπιταλισμός στο κράτος. Και οι δύο αυτές δομές κοινωνικής οργάνωσης συνδέονται εσωτερικά και αλληλοσυμπληρώνονται. Δεδομένου του γεγονότος ότι καμία από τις δύο δομές δεν είναι επιθυμητή αναδύεται η ερώτηση: υπάρχει ένας τρίτος δρόμος; Η συζήτηση που προηγήθηκε για τον αναρχο-συνδικαλιστικό-ακρατικό σοσιαλισμό – προσπάθησε να δείξει τη διανοητική συνοχή, την πιθανότητα, και την επιθυμία του ως εναλλακτικής διεξόδου. Το θέμα επομένως που αντιμετωπίζουν οι σοσιαλιστές δεν είναι: “εάν ήρθε το τέλος της ιστορίας” Η πρόκληση μάλλον είναι να ανακαλύψουμε ξανά και να μάθουμε από ένα σημαντικό κομμάτι της ιστορίας, την πλούσια και ιστορικά καταξιωμένη παράδοση του αναρχοσυνδικαλισμού.

Durante enero de este año la llegada de la marea roja desató una serie de movilizaciones en la Región de Los Lagos. Esta era la causa principal presentada por el gobierno para la crisis socioambiental que azotaba la región, silenciando las consecuencias de la depredación de las empresas salmoneras en la zona. Una salmonera había vertido el día 9 de mayo, 9 toneladas de desperdicios a 17 millas de la costa de Ancud, con la aprobación de Directemar y Sernapesca. Pero este no era un hecho aislado, ya habían pasado 40 años de industria salmonera en el territorio.

Certains sont mêmes allés jusqu'à dire que le président turc avait finalement eu son "incendie du Reichstag", qu'il va utiliser comme un prétexte parfait pour continuer à imposer son projet autoritaire et réduire au silence les voix critiques dans le pays comme à l'étranger.
