The trade unions are the combat organisations of the working class. They were built to defend and advance workers' interests against the bosses. BUT the unions can be MUCH more. The unions have the potential not only to fight the bosses in the here and now. They can ALSO organise the workers for a REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL STRIKE. This means that the workers take the land, mines and factories from the bosses and politicians. It means we run them in the interests of the workers and the poor. Real democratic socialism and real working class freedom and power will never come through getting new political parties into parliament. This is an illusion. Parliament is the graveyard of struggles. It is the place where the radicals of yesterday become the crooked politicians of today. Socialism, freedom and power can only come through class struggle. This means organising in communities AND building strong worker organisations. Worker organisations must be built to defeat the bosses, and their ally, the state… and replace them with direct workers control of production. Free of the politicians. Free of the bosses. This is the REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL STRIKE. And this can only come though revolutionary industrial unionism (anarchist syndicalism). Revolutionary unions are vital for replacing the bosses and politicians with a grassroots working class democracy. read full story / add a comment
southern africa / anarchist movement / policy statement Monday February 17, 2014 13:37 par Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front   image 1 image
Zabalaza means struggle, the continual struggle of the working class to access real freedom. We mean freedom from the repression of the state, and oppression by multi-national as well as local companies. Too long has a small elite been in control. Workers and their communities have risen up many times in the past but have always been crushed by the police forces of the state. In the past the working class – including the poor and unemployed – has protested but often lost: social movements have burnt out and trade union leaders have made bad deals with the bosses.

Zabalaza Books is pleased to make available – in PDF – this classic text, by the (Platformist) Anarchist Workers' Group (AWG), active in Britain from 1988-1992: In Place of Compromise: Why We Need a Rank and File Movement (Huddersfield, Anarchist Workers Group, 1988). It deals with issues of anarchist strategy in relation to orthodox unions, provides an important analysis of the nature of trade union bureaucracies, and draws on the earlier history of rank-and-file syndicalism, notably the Workers' Committee Movement in Britain in the late 1910s. The AWG emerged from a split in the syndicalist Direct Action Movement (now the Solidarity Federation, or SolFed). It presented a strategy for militant work within the existing unions, rather than for building new pure (and tiny) alternative unions, or for boycotting or otherwise ignoring the existing unions. It must be noted that the AWG collapsed in 1992, and several of its former members moved to Leninism - a fact that has sometimes been absurdly used to suggest that platformism leads to Leninism. The choices of these individuals do not detract from the value of this pamphlet. For a balanced view of the fate of the AWG, see and for other AWG texts, see read full story / add a comment

This year [2006] marks the 30th anniversary of the 1976 Soweto uprising in South Africa, which marked the start of the fall of apartheid, and inspired activists worldwide. African working youth played a leading role, and their sacrifices showed us that ordinary people can make a difference to the injustices of our world. Revolutionaries should commemorate this struggle, but also learn from its failings.

southern africa / the left / press release Wednesday February 23, 2011 01:46 par Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front   image 1 image
From 20 to 23 January 2011, working class and revolutionary militants from throughout South Africa, including a ZACF delegation, gathered in Johannesburg for the Conference of the Democratic Left (CDL). The gathering ended in the launch of the Democratic Left Front (DLF) as a loose alliance of organisations and individuals in struggle.

In explaining our relationship to the DLF, we will here summarise our reservations, while explaining why they are outweighed by the genuine achievements of the CDL. The reservations cover three main areas: attitudes towards the state and elections; leadership structures; and the DLF programme and demands. (We are also less than enthusiastic about some new terms that have become popular in the CDL and DLF, such as “eco-socialism”; but this is largely a matter of language, which we will not discuss in detail here.) read full story / add a comment

Un gruppo di attivisti, che si era riunito in privato per dibattere le recenti insurrezioni in Nord Africa e il Medio Oriente, è stato arrestato durante un'operazione della polizia. Sono attualmente in stato di fermo, senza accuse, e ci sono giunti voci che alcuni membri del gruppo sono sottoposti a gravi aggressioni fisiche da parte dei loro aguzzini.

Die Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft muss als die Schande aufgezeigt werden, die sie ist. Die ZACF verurteilt zutiefst die Scheinheiligkeit und Verlogenheit, mit der die Regierung die Weltmeisterschaft als einzigartige Gelegenheit zur Steigerung der ökonomischen und sozialen Verhältnisse der in Südafrika und Afrika lebenden Bevölkerung präsentiert. Dabei ist und war diese Gelegenheit lediglich eine Fressorgie für das inländische und globale Kapital und die in Südafrika herrschende Elite. Tatsächlich hat das Ereignis verheerende Konsequenzen für die Armen und die arbeitende Klasse in Südafrika – ein Vorgang, der bereits begonnen hat.

sydlige afrika / miscellaneous / opinion/analysis Saturday July 03, 2010 03:57 par Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front   image 1 image
VM 2010 må afsløres som det fuldkomne humbug, det er. Den sydafrikanske anarkistføderation Zabalaza fordømmer kraftigt den sydafrikanske regerings frækhed og hykleri, når de præsenterer verdensmesterskabet som en enestående mulighed for løfte det sydafrikanske folk og resten af kontinentet, økonomisk og socialt.

Det er helt klart, at ”muligheden” er og bliver en mulighed for nye indtjeninger til den globale og hjemlige kapital og den sydafrikanske herskerklasse. Faktisk er der, om noget, større sandsynlighed for, at mesterskaberne har skadelige konsekvenser for Sydafrikas fattige og for arbejderklassen – hvilket vi allerede har set eksempler på.
