internacional / movimento anarquista / debate Thursday April 03, 2014 22:15 byÉrrico Malatesta
"Entre os anarquistas existem os revolucionários que acreditam que é necessário abater, pela força, a força que mantém a ordem atual, para criar um ambiente no qual seja possível a evolução livre dos indivíduos e das coletividades. E existem os educacionistas que pensam que só se pode chegar à transformação social, transformando antes os indivíduos, por meio da educação e da propaganda. Existem partidários da não-violência ou da resistência passiva, que evitam a violência ainda que seja para combater a violência. E existem aqueles que admitem a necessidade da violência, os quais se dividem, por sua vez, no que diz respeito à natureza, alcance e limites da violência licita." read full story / add a comment
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 23:54 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
mashrek / arabia / irak / movimento anarchico / intervista Thursday July 25, 2013 17:46 byJoshua Stephens
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

On İstiklal Street, around French Consolate, 200 meters far from police, holding the stones of the beach in one hand and the flag of the revolt in the other you are clshing with the police. A piece of cloth wet with talcid is your gas mask, police is spraying pressured water, throwing gas bombs one and after, you are left in the middle of gas retreating throwing stones you are out of breath smothered, breatheless at that moment somebody run near you, spray water with antiacid on your face, asking “how are you, are you okay?” You are not okay but immediately you get well. read full story / add a comment
greece / turkey / cyprus / anarchist movement / news report Monday June 03, 2013 14:14 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

The term "reverse engineering", used in computer programming, differs from the old strategies used in the past to start with a problem and try to find a solution to it as it starts with characterizing the goal and then working backwards to try to find the way to it. read full story / add a comment

Nel discutere la piattaforma di Collective Action alcune individualità hanno evidenziato una certa confusione nel nostro uso della definizione di "specifismo " per descrivere la tradizione dell'anarchismo sociale a cui facciamo riferimento. Quella che segue è una breve introduzione ai concetti base del modello specifista. Si tratta di un adattamento di una intervista che uscirà per Shift Magazine sulle reatà anticapitaliste.
