north america / mexico / the left / opinion / analysis Sunday March 17, 2013 23:35 by S. Nappalos
The terrain is changing beneath our feet. Since the collapse of the majority of the “official communist” regimes, the world has witnessed both events and ideas that have undermined the former dominant thinking within the left. The Zapatistas, Argentina in 2001, South Korean workers movements, Oaxaca in 2006, the struggles around anti-globalization, and Greece’s series of insurrectionary moments have increasingly presented challenges to traditional left answers to movements and organization. In previous eras Marxist-Leninism was the nexus which all currents by default had to respond to either in agreement or critique. Today, increasingly anarchist practices and theory have come to play this role.

As a member of an anarchist political organization, a friend once told me I in fact was practicing democratic centralism. This was perplexing, because the group had no resembling structures, practices, or the associated behaviors of democratic centralism. However, I was told that since we debated, came to common decisions, and acted on that collective democracy, we were in fact democratic centralist. This kind of productive confusion led to questions about the concept, and why the target of democratic centralism has shifted. This move, the shifting conceptual territory of core concepts of a certain orthodoxy, comes up repeatedly not only with democratic centralism, but also surrounding ideas like crisis, dialectics, the State, and class. The resulting cognitive dissonance caused me to investigate attempts at reinvigorating the concept of democratic centralism (democratic centralist revisionism), and understand truly what it is, where it came from, and how it has been practiced. read full story / add a comment

Hemos gastado nuestros días buscando la potencia entre las ruinas y la chatarra, pero finalmente nos hemos dado cuenta que no era ahí donde debíamos buscar. Lo que perseguimos no pude habitar en este mundo miserable que no es nuestro, y cuyo entorno es una “snuff-movie” eternamente en “play”. Su esbozo se encuentra acá, en una estrella a punto de estallar que cada uno de nosotros lleva sobre sus hombros. Podemos afirmar que ahora, que hemos perdido un mundo entero y maldecimos con toda la fuerza de nuestras almas, nos encontramos en disposición de conquistar uno nuevo, uno propio.

For Black History Month: In 1941, the African-American labor leader, A. Philip Randolph made a call for a national demonstration by African-Americans in Washington, D.C. The demonstration never occurred, because of sabotage by White and Black liberals. But the organizing for it, and the movement behind it, continuing during World War II, had a big impact on U.S. Black people. It was an important influence preparing for the Civil Rights and Black Liberation struggles of the 1950s and ‘60s. read full story / add a comment

In the housing defense movement, we often get bogged down in legal approaches and the banking fraud we use as leverage. But what about situations when it is merely a lack of funds for the person living in the home? It is at those moments that you see the most crucial element of the struggle, and how you can use this organizing to transform the conversation about housing. read full story / add a comment

As much as this pains those who have participated in the anarchist communist experience between 2011 and 2014 in the Canadian prairies, today, Prairie Struggle announces its official secession and subsequent disbandment. To this day, Prairie Struggle was the only specific platformist organization in the Canadians prairies. Though some may recall the existence of an anarchist communist group in Regina affiliated to the ACF (Anarchist Communist Federation of North America) in the 80s, organized anarchism in the prairies has had many difficulties, some of which the Prairie Struggle Project has failed to overcome. Despite its downfall, Prairie Struggle, for one last time, offers a look into the organization, its failures and its small victories.

The documentary Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre (2014, Nickos Ventouras) narrates one of the “bleakest and blackest” chapters in American labor history, the Ludlow Massacre.
A 101 years earlier, on April 20, 1914, in Ludlow, Colorado, USA, a strike for basic labor rights by exploited miners and their families, mostly immigrants, was violently ended by state militia. In the fight, the strikers’ tent colony was machine-gunned and burned to the ground, leaving over twenty people dead, including women and children.

La police assassine les étudiants imageMexique : des pistoleros contre la protestation étudiante 01:06 Tue 07 Oct by Commission international 0 comments

Le Mexique est secoué par les révélations sur un massacre d’étudiant.e.s protestataires, le 26 septembre : 6 morts, 25 blessés et 38 disparus. On vient de retrouver les corps de 17 des disparus, exécutés vraisemblablement par des paramilitaires de mèche avec les pouvoirs publics.

Suite à l’attaque d’une manifestation d’étudiant.e.s mexicains dans le Guerrero par les forces armées de l’État, les organisations et associations qui soutiennent l’« Autre Campagne » en Europe manifestent leur solidarité.

Les nouvelles concernant les étudiant.e.s disparu.e.s sont alarmantes, puisque des corps ont récemment été retrouvés dans des fosses communes. Les témoignages convergent pour accuser les paramilitaires — de connivence avec les autorités locales — d’avoir commis ce massacre.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

imageAddress Of Enrique Flores Magon In The Federal Court, Los Angeles, June 22, 1916 Jan 27 by Enrique Flores Magon 0 comments

Powerful address by the Mexican anarchist-communist revolutionary, Enrique Flores Magon, brother to fellow anarchist-communist militants Jesus and Ricardo Flores Magon. This address was given to a US court, defending the brothers' fight for "the emancipation of the downtrodden, particularly of the Mexican proletarians, and of the disinherited all over the world in general." It defends the then-ongoing Mexican Revolution against imperialism and capitalism, argues for anarchist-communism, and makes an internationalist appeal to the American working class for joint struggle against tyrants and exploiters, stressing common class realities.

The brothers Enrique and Ricardo Flores Magon were at the time in exile, in the USA, conducting revolutionary work. They were arrested several times, this speech being given during the trial that followed their arrest in 1916 for distributing "indecent materials" (both were found guilty). Ricardo was again arrested in 1918 for sedition, given 20 years, and died in a US prison in 1922. Enrique was released in 1923 and returned to Mexico.

The horrific execution of an unarmed, handcuffed, on the ground black man in front of dozens of witnesses has led to an outburst of struggle whose fire is not spent and whose meaning is still being defined. In this article, I will argue that what is at stake in this struggle is the future of North Minneapolis, which, in miniature, is a question of the future of our cities and of working class people across the country.

imageMessico: terrorismo di stato, capitalismo criminale e resistenza antisistema Nov 01 by Núcleo Comunista Libertario 0 comments

In territorio messicano, il governo di Peña Nieto si è reso responsabile di numerosi massacri contro quei cuori insorti che resistono all'oblio, alla morte ed all'impunità. Un esempio di questi massacri è la scomparsa, più di un anno fa, di 43 studenti della Scuola Normale Atyotzinapa all'interno di uno straziante processo di messa a tacere del pensiero critico, di persecuzione dei progetti educativi indipendenti e di contenimento della protesta sociale. Utilizzando i trafficanti di droga, il "para-Stato" messicano ha fisicamente ucciso decine di giovani speranze che cercavano di trasformare questo sistema marcio a partire dalla loro vita quotidiana e dal loro lavoro come insegnanti in formazione.
