textAlzamiento popular en Zimbabwe 06:07 Tue 27 Sep by Rebeldía Contrainformativa 0 comments

Desde el año 2013, las protestas populares de sectores de trabajadores como comerciantes, conductores de transporte público e incluso sectores de desempleados en Zimbabwe han aumentado, y en varias zonas del país ha habido alzamiento en armas; todo esto contra el presidente Robert Gabriel Mugabe, elegido en el 2013 y que representa al partido ZANU-PF, quien está en el poder desde hace 36 años.

19th February 2016 The following is the official statement of the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF) of South Africa on the controversy that erupted around Michael Schmidt, a South African activist, several months ago. It follows a careful collective discussion process and research and comes several weeks after the last installment in a series of articles claiming to be an expose of Schmidt. As we are also committed to a number of ongoing workshops, activities and publications, our time was limited. It has two main aims: to outline our position on the claims made for, and against, Schmidt, and to respond to a number of false statements that have been made about the ZACF in the course of the developing Schmidt affair. The statement opens with an executive summary, followed by a much more extensive discussion. The statement was collectively crafted and issued by the ZACF: www.zabalaza.net Questions and requests for comment should be addressed to zacf@riseup.net with a clearly-identifiable subject line (Please note that we will not be responding to questions, queries or claims from people using pseudonyms or otherwise concealing their identities. Organisational affiliation, if any, should please be stated). * Please note that a much earlier draft seems to have leaked online, labelled “Consolidated ZACF statement v18.docx” at 84kb, dated 22 December 2015. Our documents go through a process of collective writing and criticism and fact-checking, so THIS version (the one you are reading now) is the correct one, with significant changes from earlier versions. All previous drafts are made null-and-void by this final version and have no standing whatsoever, and we will not enter into discussion of such drafts.

Le Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front [Ndt. Organisation communiste libertaire d’Afrique du Sud] est profondément attristé d’apprendre la mort d’un grand être humain, un frère africain et un camarade de lutte – Sam Mbah. Nous voudrions envoyer nos plus sincères sympathies à ceux et celles qui ont connu Sam. Nous espérons que vous puissiez vous consoler par le fait qu’il a fait le plus pleinement usage du temps passé avec nous.

In what will no doubt become known as a historic strike, women workers at Robertson Winery have played a key role, both because they form the majority of the striking workers but also as leaders of the strike.

imageOne Year after the 2015 Grahamstown Riots against Foreign Traders Dec 15 by Lucien van der Walt 0 comments

A year ago, starting 20 October 2015, around 75 small shops were looted, some burned down, in the eastern townships and downtown area of the small Eastern Cape university town of Grahamstown/ iRhini, South Africa. The attacks targeted Asian and African immigrants, many of them Muslim, and displaced 500 people. These riots were largely ignored by the media.

The text below is a slightly revised revision of a briefing I was asked to write at the time for the local Unemployed People’s Movement (UPM). The UPM played a heroic role in opposing the attacks and assisting the displaced. The text’s general points remain relevant to the working class’s fight against prejudice and racism. And the riots of 2015 should not be forgotten.grahamstown-riots

imageIn the ANC’s battle of factions there are no superheroes Nov 05 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

The battle between Pravin Gordhan and Jacob Zuma has been presented along the lines of a superhero comic. Gordhan, the hero, is portrayed as the last defence against the rampaging villain, vile Zuma. And like all superhero tales Gordhan the good appears to be gaining the upper hand over Zuma the bad – especially since corruption charges have been dropped and the damning Public Protector’s report on state capture has been released.

Αυτό είναι το δεύτερο κείμενο από μια σειρά κειμένων που θέλουν να εστιάσουν στην διεθνή ιστορική συγκυρία της καπιταλιστικής κυριαρχίας, στην προσπάθειά της να αναδιαρθρωθεί εντός εκτός των αφηγημάτων περί ‘’κρίσης’’. Η απεργία στο Marikana και η εξέλιξή της, η εμπλοκή των κρατικών θεσμών και της αστυνομίας μπορεί, ενδεχομένως, να φωτίσει κάποιες πτυχές της διαδικασίας εξόρυξης υπεραξίας, της εργατικής εκμετάλλευσης και την ιδιαίτερη μορφή που αυτή λαμβάνει στην συγκυρία αυξανόμενης διεθνοποίησης της αξίας.

imageWorker-Student Alliances: Anarchist Approach Needed Oct 30 by Leroy Maisiri 0 comments

Recent worker-student alliances and activities are lacking in an anarchist/syndicalist approach which focuses on ‘people’s power’ and ‘worker control’. Such an approach is important for radical transformation, writes Leroy Maisiri.
