We are writing to you out of solidarity for CSAAWU, a union based amongst farmworkers in South Africa with which we have relations. In 2012/3 South African farmworkers rebelled against the deplorable conditions in the sector – for which hundreds were dismissed and victimized. CSAAWU is one of the few unions that organises in this difficult and under-represented industry. In the aftermath of the rebellion it took a decision to take up the struggle, including by defending close to 100 workers in the labour court.

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

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 http://www.anarkismo.net/article/8452 and for other AWG texts, see http://flag.blackened.net/revolt/awg.html 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.

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

It is hard for many activists when the real meaning of the struggle are not concrete achievable gains, but a global worldwide struggle. This week, the concrete and the global merged when the struggle against the destruction of Susiya village recruited international support and forced Israel to delay or even cancel the demolition of the village. Pressure from the imperial powers on Israel was joined by European warning about approaching sanctions against the Israeli banking system for its involvement in the settlers' projects in the occupied West Bank. It seems the erosion of Israeli immunity from paying for its war crimes is collecting momentum. The Israeli media is full of news about B.D.S. - the joint struggle in which thousands of international activists participate, contributing a lot. The heroic Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'sara, and Sheikh Jarrah keep the weekly flame from extinguishing.

L'1 gennaio del 1994 in Chiapas le masse innalzarono la bandiera della ribellione giusto dopo che il mondo capitalista aveva celebrato il suo trionfo sulle rivoluzioni del 20° secolo e si accingeva a lanciare la globalizzazione neoliberista a livello mondiale. Ma la lotta è proseguita con nuove modalità. I sorprendenti sviluppi nella Rojava, in cui le principali potenze imperialiste si trovano a dare sostegno aereo ai Curdi antiautoritari ed anticapitalisti di Siria, sono come uno stormo di passeri che segnano l'arrivo della primavera. In questo imminente cambiamento, si sviluppa il panico delle classi dirigenti sioniste israeliane di fronte alla veloce avanzata della campagna B.D.S.... Non possiamo misurare il contributo di ciascuna lotta al cambiamento, ma sembra che una quota importante spetti alle migliaia di attivisti internazionali che hanno condiviso con noi la lotta unitaria non-armata contro il muro della separazione, contro gli insediamenti e contro l'occupazione.

"Dirceu não abre e nem gagueja na hora do depoimento. Entendo que Dirceu macula e lastima ex-combatentes da ditadura. O ex-Ministro forte de Lula está do lado errado do conflito social, opera com a mentalidade do antigo inimigo de classe, e atua de forma assemelhada a Rodolfo Galimberti brasileiro e vai se comportar do mesmo jeito de sempre; sem entregar ninguém e menos ainda ceder a pressões externas", opina Bruno Lima Rocha, professor de Relações Internacionais.

Η de facto πολιτική της Ε.Ε, είναι να αφήνει τους μετανάστες να πνίγονται, ώστε να τους αναγκάσει να φοβηθούν να κάνουν το ταξίδι. Το 2014, σχεδόν 4.000 πτώματα ανθρώπων περισυνελέγησαν από τη Μεσόγειο. Κι αυτός ο αριθμός αντιπροσωπεύει, μόνο τα πτώματα που βρέθηκαν. Ο συνολικός αριθμός των αφίξεων στην Ιταλία το 2014 ανέβηκε πάνω από 300% σε σχέση με το 2013, με περισσότερους από 170.000 πρόσφυγες.

image“Masacre laboral” contra los obreros de Chiclets Adams/Cadbury en Cali Aug 04 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Frente a la empresa de Cadbury-Chiclets Adams en el barrio Calima de la ciudad de Cali, los obreros se han agrupado en “carpas de la resistencia” para protestar por el cierre de la empresa, propiedad de Mondelēz Internacional, multinacional norteamericana, que produce una serie de productos, entre ellos las galletas Oreo, Motitas, Sparkies, Halls, Chiclets Adams, Bublicious, Trident, Bubbaloo, Certs y Club Social. Esto no es una huelga, sino una lucha sindical para reclamar el derecho al trabajo. Las paredes de la fábrica se encuentran llenos de carteles en que denuncian a la multinacional, que llaman al boicot de sus productos y al reintegro de los trabajadores. Denuncian, en fuertes términos, lo que llaman una “Masacre Laboral” en contra de los trabajadores. Un obrero comenta que “esto es una masacre laboral, porque con este cierre, unilateral, fraudulento, nos han cortado nuestros proyectos de vida, nuestra estabilidad. Por ejemplo, yo iba a comprar una vivienda y ahora el banco me ha rechazado el préstamo. Son muchas las afectaciones que los obreros estamos sufriendo solamente por la codicia de una multinacional que nos ve como máquinas viejas que pueden desechar cuando ya les han sacado todo el uso que podían”.

imageUna proyección de análisis acerca de la aproximación de Cuba con EEUU Aug 04 by BrunoL 0 comments

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

La reaproximación entre Estados Unidos y Cuba, con la reanudación de las relaciones diplomáticas entre los dos países, está concluyendo una etapa de la geopolítica de América Latina, que se remonta a la Guerra Fría. La victoria de la Revolución Cubana abrió en nuestro continente una ventana de posibilidades de cambio, resultando en un vendaval revolucionario de tres décadas. Aún tenemos fuerzas insurgentes latinoamericanas, como el ELN y la FARC colombianas, y el EZLN y EPR de México, pero tal accionar está muy distante del que hubo hasta la rendición y armisticio de las guerrillas centro-americanas en la mitad de la década de 1990. Observar las relaciones cubano-estadunidenses hoy, implica también en hacer la proyección de los tiempos que se avecinan.
