international / anarchist movement / debate Thursday December 12, 2013 19:18 byLucien van der Walt
Examining the theory and practice of ‘mass’ anarchism and syndicalism, this paper argues against Daryl Glaser’s views that workers’ council democracy fails basic democratic benchmarks and that, envisaged as a simple instrument of a revolution imagined in utopian ‘year zero’ terms, it will probably collapse or end in ‘Stalinist’ authoritarianism—Glaser also argues instead for parliaments, supplemented by participatory experiments. While agreeing with Glaser on the necessity of a ‘democratic minimum’ of pluralism, rights, and open-ended outcomes, I demonstrate, in contrast, that this ‘minimum’ is perfectly compatible with bottom-up council democracy and self-management, as envisaged in anarchist/syndicalist theory, and as implemented by anarchist revolutions in Manchuria, Spain and Ukraine. This approach seeks to maximise individual freedom through an egalitarian, democratic, participatory order, developed as both means and outcome of revolution; it consistently insists that attempts to ‘save’ revolutions by suspending freedoms, instead destroy both. Parliament, again in contrast to Glaser, from this perspective, meets no ‘democratic minimum’, being part of the state, a centralized, unaccountable institutional nexus essential to domination and exploitation by a ruling class of state managers and capitalists. Rather than participate in parliaments, ‘mass’ anarchism argues for popular class autonomy from, and struggle against, the existing order as a means of winning economic and political reforms while—avoiding ‘year zero’ thinking—also building the new society, within and against, the old, through a prefigurative project of revolutionary counter-power and counter-culture. Revolution here means the complete expansion of a bottom-up democracy, built through a class struggle for economic and social equality, and requiring the defeat of the ruling class, which is itself the outcome of widespread, free acceptance of anarchism, and of a pluralistic council democracy and self-management system. read full story / add a comment

italia / svizzera / movimento anarchico / intervista Thursday August 01, 2013 22:54 byCollettivo redazionale di Roma
L'idea di realizzare questa intervista ci era venuta già nella seconda metà di giugno, quando avevamo letto il comunicato di indizione della festa di Alternativa Libertaria. L'elemento stimolante dell'iniziativa stava, a nostro avviso, nell'intento di rilanciare con forza, nel contesto attuale, l'ipotesi autogestionaria. Certo, molti rimarranno perplessi di fronte a un simile proposito, perché negli ultimi anni il termine autogestione ha spesso indicato la prassi di liberare spazi, finendo per disinteressarsi del contesto circostante. Ma l'impostazione della Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici è ben altra, come emerge da questa conversazione. read full story / add a comment

In Palestina, spesso ci sono stati storicamente elementi di auto-organizzazione nella lotta popolare. Anche se non esplicitamente ascrivibili all'anarchismo in quanto tale. "Le persone già organizzano le loro vite su basi orizzontali o non gerarchiche", dice Beesan Ramadan, anarchica del posto, la quale definisce l'anarchismo come una "tattica" dubitando della necessità di darsi delle etichette. read full story / add a comment

greece / turkey / cyprus / anarchist movement / news report Monday June 03, 2013 13:14 byDAF
This is just the beginning, the struggle is going on.
Revolt is out of time and space. For about 40 hours from Istiklal to Harbiye, from Tarlabasi to Besiktas the freedom of a rebellion is being felt. We come in to Taksim Square from Istiklal, after forty hours of clashes. Law enforcement officers run away with all their vehicles. Forty hours, forty years, the square has been a world for us.
This was the freedom of rebellion, maybe the most frightening slogan was that, this is just the beginning the struggle is going on.
Yes, our struggle is going on till we grow our free world, which we carry in our hearts. read full story / add a comment

We, militants of the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF), send you a big clenched fist salute and revolutionary internationalist greetings on this the historic occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the Federación Anarquista Uruguaya (FAU) – commemorating 60 years of struggle for freedom and socialism. It has been a long and no doubt hard and bumpy road since 1956. We honour the many FAU militants who, like Alberto “Pocho” Mechoso, gave up their freedom and even their lives in the struggle for freedom and socialism. Yet, after all is said and done, you are celebrating another milestone, another anniversary. You continue to keep the red and black banner of class struggle anarchism alive and well on the Latin American continent – holding it up as an example for all to see.

Δηλώνουμε παρόντες στον μαινόμενο ταξικό πόλεμο, ενωμένοι ενάντια στον κρατισμό και τον ρεφορμισμό, κοιτάζοντας κατάματα τις διδαχές του παρελθόντος και την κληρονομιά του ιστορικού αναρχισμού, ευελπιστώντας να συμβάλλουμε όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερο στην επίρρωση του αναρχικού κομμουνιστικού προγράμματος. Απέναντι στην πολυδιάσπαση, να αντιτάξουμε την οργάνωση και τον αγώνα, για να βγούμε από την κοιλιά του τέρατος και να αντικρίσουμε το φως της κοινωνικής απελευθέρωσης.

What we call complete crisis of the system is the violent redeployment of power that targets to alter the terms of social and class antagonism for the worse for the exploited. The acute contradiction between real social needs and social and class relations that impose the amputation of these needs and make it hard for them to be met leads to the economic, political, ethical and environmental dimensions of the crisis.

Το άρθρο αυτό -που εξήχθη σχεδόν πλήρως από το βιβλίο μου Teoria Bakuniniana do Estado [Μπακουνική Θεωρία του Κράτους] (2)- έχει στόχο να παρουσιάσει μια σύντομη συζήτηση για τη θεωρία των κοινωνικών τάξεων και της γραφειοκρατίας έτσι όπως διατυπώθηκε από τον Μιχαήλ Μπακούνιν στην αναρχική περίοδο της ζωής του.
Ποια είναι τα κριτήρια που καθορίζουν τις κοινωνικές τάξεις; Ποιες είναι οι κοινωνικές τάξεις; Υπάρχουν κυρίαρχες και καταπιεσμένες τάξεις; Πώς μπορεί να οριστεί η ταξική πάλη; Τι είναι η γραφειοκρατία; Πώς σχετίζεται με άλλα κοινωνικά στρώματα; Αυτά είναι μερικά από τα ερωτήματα στα οποία το κείμενο προσπαθεί να απαντήσει.

textNo One is Coming to Save Us Nov 12 by M1AA 1 comments

Across the US, from cities to rural areas, it is imperative that anarchists and anti-authoritarians strive to build organizations to battle the emboldened far right, to advocate through militant action the needs of working-class communities, and to combat state repression.

What Needs to Be Done:
1. No to National “healing”, working with, or a grace period for the Trump Regime
2. Take to the streets – build a militant resistance
3. Build working-class defense organizations that resist racist attacks, sexual assault, immigration and homeland security raids and deportations, police brutality and state repression
4. Agitate and organize for workers actions – including a general strike against Trump
5. No to containment of the struggle back into the Democratic Party, electoralism and the Non-Profit Industrial Complex

This article – almost fully extracted from my book Teoria Bakuniniana do Estado [Bakuninian Theory of the State] – aims to realize a brief discussion on the theory of social classes and bureaucracy elaborated by Mikhail Bakunin in his anarchist period. What are the criteria that define the social classes? Which are the social classes? Are there dominant and oppressed classes? How can class struggle be defined? What is bureaucracy? How does it relate to other social strata? These are some of the questions the text tries to answer.

imageLeftists and Communists have damaged the Socialist movement as much as the right-wing did Oct 04 by Zaher Baher 1 comments

There are many people from leftists, communists , socialists and some of the anarchists believe that Marxism and Leninism are two different things . They think that Lenin has distorted Marxism. My article here explains with evidence that whatever Lenin said and did have been originated from Marx . It tells you that Marxism has contributed greatly in damaging the socialist/ anarchist movement as much as the rightwing did.
The article analysis the role of technology, Proletariate , political party, bourgeoisie, nature and environment , revolution and nation question in view of Marx and connecting Lenin to him.

Αφήνοντας στην άκρη τις ιστορικές ρίζες του σύγχρονου κράτους και του καπιταλισμού, πιστεύουμε ότι έχει σημασία στο σήμερα να κατανοήσουμε τον βαθμό αλληλόδρασης και σύγκλισης των δύο, ο οποίος είναι τέτοιος που αφενός μπορούμε να μιλήσουμε για μια συνθήκη σύγχρονου ολοκληρωτισμού, αφετέρου πιστεύουμε ότι αποδομεί την έκφραση αντικαπιταλιστικού (πόσο μάλλον αντιιμπεριαλιστικού) λόγου εφόσον δεν συμπληρώνεται απαραιτήτως από αντικρατικό λόγο.
