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

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.

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.

Continua la guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas, anche se in tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Dalla scomparsa dei tre coloni da Gush Etzion, (colonia per soli ebrei sotto il controllo totale dello stato di Israele in Cisgiordania), Israele ha posto sotto assedio quattro milioni di palestinesi, bombardando ospedali, scuole, ogni sorta di obiettivi civili, distruggendo e saccheggiando case, rubando, effettuando sequestri, ferendo e uccidendo sia in modo mirato che indiscriminato al di fuori di ogni legislazione internazionale.

Siamo al 13° giorno di guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas. In tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Tutto quello che Israele vuole da questa guerra è rompere l'unità di governo palestinese ed evitare l'accelerazione degli accordi di pace. Il problema causato dalla resa di Hamas, messa in ginocchio dalla crisi economica, alla Autorità Palestinese, deriva dalle scelte del governo egiziano, il quale minaccia molto seriamente quel progetto di divisione permanente dei Palestinesi a cui Israele ha dedicato tanti sforzi. Il solo totale collasso del governo di Hamas nella Striscia di Gaza spaventa Israele più di ogni altra cosa. [English]

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

I diversi fattori che al momento sembrano scollegati tra loro delineano il punto di caduta o, almeno, il tentativo del capitale di trovare un nuovo equilibrio internazionale per assicurare una nuova fase di accumulazione capitalistica, in area occidentale (USA-EU). Ciò che viene comunemente definita crisi e che dal 2008 affligge interi popoli sembra non poter uscire dalla propria dimensione monetaria. Una politica monetaria - che vede le banche commerciali protagoniste nella creazione di danaro attraverso il prestito reso possibile dall'aumento del debito - ha una funzione temporale necessaria a proteggere la capitalizzazione del sistema finanziario, ma ha il pregio di mostrare a tutti quali sono le dinamiche del potere finanziario.

Proprio quando la pressione dell'Europa su Israele per un compromesso con il governo palestinese stava cogliendo il momento giusto favorito dal calo in atto delle esportazioni israeliane, Israele ha cercato di trarre vantaggio dal rapimento dei tre giovani coloni applicando i "piani nel cassetto" nel tentativo di incendiare una intifada armata. Quasi tre settimane di propaganda basata su menzogne (come se sapessero già della morte dei tre giovani) hanno inondato i media. Quando alla fine i corpi sono stati "trovati", le bugie sono risultate per quello che erano e le intimidazioni per far accendere l'intifada hanno fallito l'obiettivo. I crescenti crimini di odio dell'estrema destra israeliana e l'uccisione di un giovane palestinese a Gerusalemme Est occupata hanno scatenato una dura reazione nella città e nelle zone palestinesi all'interno dei confini del 1948.

Per capire l'importanza del contesto politico degli eventi in corso bisogna rifarsi al novembre 2012, con l'accordo tra Israele ed Hamas sponsorizzato dall'Egitto. [English]
