As we engage in larger social movements, it can be easy to lose sight of our endgame and essentially function as a type of "social democrat." Here are some key reasons and methods for avoiding this, as well as countering the progressive election logic during voting season. read full story / add a comment

Campaigns teach by more than what is in their written programs. Even if the campaign was more explicitly radical, functionally it is teaching people that social change comes about through electing better politicians. The campaign has all the features of a mainstream election effort – adoration of a single personality, exaggeration of his “leadership”, meaningless pledges to “get results for you”. This is an elitist approach that reinforces the passivity of people by making someone else the “leader” who gets things done, instead of arguing for all of us to take control over our own lives. The activists and community members who have dived into the Ty Moore campaign are not prioritizing organizing one-on-ones to plan direct actions at work, at school, or in their neighborhoods, or discussing and debating how to replace the racist police with community militias or how narrow gender-roles stifle our humanity or how to build rank & file power against the union bureaucracy. They are rallying around “our guy” and training people to fundraise and to get out the vote. This is the main lesson that participants in the campaign are gaining: How to participate in this unjust system. read full story / add a comment

Democratic Party politicians have denounced right-wing Republicans as "anarchists." Why? Are they "anarchists"? What about rightwingers who call themselves "libertarians"? Are "anarcho-capitalists" really anarchists? Are they consistent with the tradition of "individualist anarchism"? read full story / add a comment

Horreur et stupeur sont des mots bien insuffisants pour exprimer notre dégoût face au crime haineux perpétré samedi après-midi à l’endroit de la Mosquée de Chicoutimi. Nous qui militons au quotidien pour abattre ces frontières formées de préjugés, de violence, d’oppression, de privilège et d’ignorance, sommes attristé-e-s par cette nouvelle manifestation d’un système d’oppression – le racisme – bien présent chez nous. Alors que nous voyons dans cet acte la continuité d’une campagne de propagande haineuse d’un groupuscule raciste de la région, nous nous insurgeons également contre des formes de racisme beaucoup plus répandues et banalisées dans notre milieu. À l’ombre des bêtes idées-marketing de « ville accueillante » (sans action) et des vaines quêtes du journalisme policier de nos grands médias, nous émettons cette déclaration à partager : du courage naît l’espoir, l’espoir de vaincre et terrasser toutes les formes d’oppression. C’est un appel à l’action. [Engilsh] read full story / add a comment

Words like shock and horror do not do enough to express our disgust before the hate crime perpetrated Saturday afternoon against the Chicoutimi Mosque. We who are active every day tearing down these borders built of prejudices, violence, oppression, privilege and ignorance, are saddened by this new manifestation of a system of oppression – racism – that is widespread where we live.

With the state pushing reform forward, the National Representative Assembly of the CNTE decided to call off the beginning of the school year and declared an indefinite work stoppage starting on August 19. They called for a massive convergence in the Zócalo and for more than three weeks, over 40,000 teachers from all corners of Mexico have reinforced the encampment, turning the Zócalo into a tent and tarp city. read full story / add a comment

After putting much of our efforts in the cross Canada Speaking Tour on Combative Unionism, a debate on Combative unionism took place inside and outside of Prairie Struggle giving way to PSO's first position paper. In this position paper we hope to contribute to the relevant work and theoretical development that has been done or is already underway. We salute our comrades within the revolutionary left that are active in undermining bureaucratic control over working class power. read full story / add a comment

Parece que Obama nos quisiera tomar el pelo. A todos. Sin siquiera sonrojarse, se ha “comprometido”, en una carta enviada al gobierno de Rusia, que no torturarán ni condenarán a muerte a Edward Snowden, actualmente asilado en ese país. ¡Qué generoso el sátrapa de Washington! Las promesas patéticas de Obama de no torturar y de no asesinar a Snowden, solamente no recuerdan que éste es uno de los países en el mundo donde la pena de muerte se aplica con la mayor ligereza y donde, como él mismo lo admite tácitamente, se tortura. Más allá de lo difícil que es creer en nada de lo que EEUU promete, lo cierto es que Obama no puede prometer algo que es lo que realmente importa en el proceso de asilo: las garantías para un juicio justo. read full story / add a comment

El pasado 11 de julio nos percatamos que la programación de Regeneración Radio fue interrumpida, pensando que tal vez fuese un problema de energía eléctrica, nos dimos a la tarea de averiguar las causas. En esa fecha, es importante señalar, el Colegio de Ciencias y Humanidades Plantel Vallejo (CCH-V) se encontraba cerrado debido al periodo vacacional (1 al 19 de julio), pudiendo acceder solamente las autoridades universitarias, y el personal de seguridad que resguarda las instalaciones. read full story / add a comment

There is only one way to achieve any justice for Trayvon Martin and the thousands of other young, African-American men and women who have been profiled, attacked or killed because they were walking or driving while Black, and that is to resist, to rise up, and to rebel... If we want justice for Trayvon Martin and if we want to confront racism, racial profiling and the wholesale attacks on young African-Americans and people of color, then we must bring it. There is no justice for Trayvon Martin under this system. Be prepared. What we have to say, all of us is: Justice is coming and we are all bringing it. read full story / add a comment

Ci vuole il massimo di resistenza contro le idee anti-gay, contro queste ideologie, contro le aggressioni e la violenza. La soluzione non sta nell'avere dei poliziotti gay o un governo pro-gay. La polizia ed il sistema di cui è al servizio non fanno che perpetrare la violenza e l'ingiustizia istituzionalizzate. Dobbiamo stare nelle lotte per la libertà e per l'uguaglianza degli LGTBQ. Che si faccia parte delle persone LGTBQ o che si sia loro alleati, dobbiamo stabilire connessioni con i milioni di persone che stanno lottando per la dignità e la giustizia tanto a livello personale che sociale. Di fronte alle aggressioni ed agli omicidi che vengono commessi, dobbiamo lavorare per denunciare e per incoraggiare, per auto-organizzare quelle iniziative e quei progetti che possano mobilitare e creare azione - sia con la immediata autodifesa nella strade sia nelle organizzazioni di massa che si scontrano con le leggi governative e sociali! E' necessario far sapere a chi pensa di poterci colpire che non gli sarà così facile! [English] read full story / add a comment

There has to be maximum resistance to anti-gay ideas, ideologies, attacks and violence. The solution isn’t in gay cops or a pro-gay government. The police and the System they serve are perpetrators of institutional violence and injustice. We have to be in the struggles for LGTBQ freedom and equality. Whether as LGTBQ folks or as allies, we must be connecting with the millions of people who are fighting for personal and social dignity and justice. As attacks and murders are committed, we must work to either highlight and encourage or organize ourselves those initiatives and projects that mobilize and act – whether in outright street based self-defense or in mass organizations that confront government and social laws! We need to make it rough for anyone who thinks they can bash us! [Italiano] read full story / add a comment
