Νότια Αφρική (Περιφέρεια) / Αναρχικό κίνημα / Γνώμη / Ανάλυση Thursday September 25, 2008 19:52 by James Pendlebury (ZACF)
Αν δεν υπάρχει εναλλακτική λύση, τότε ας μας συγκροτήσουμε εμείς μια τέτοια. Ας οικοδομήσουμε τα κινήματά μας σε τέτοιο σημείο που οι μετανάστες - οι γυναίκες που βιάζονται ή οι ομοφυλόφιλοι που αντιμετωπίζουν τη σοβινιστική βία – να μη χρειαστεί ν’ αναζητήσουν την αμφίβολη βοήθεια της αστυνομίας. Ας συγκροτήσουμε δυνατές κοινότητες της εργατικής τάξης που να είναι ικανές να αυτοαμυνθούν και να υπερασπίσουν τα μέλη τους ενάντια στην καταστολή και το σοβινισμό. read full story / add a comment

southern africa / history / opinion / analysis Friday September 19, 2008 14:39 by James Pendlebury   image 1 image
For decades, nationalism – African or Afrikaner – has been the dominant ideology in South Africa. It has drawn the working class into unity with the bosses, and divided workers from their fellow workers. It has promised freedom and delivered oppression; it has promised bread and delivered starvation. Nationalism can play a progressive role when in opposition to an oppressive regime, but in power, it invariably becomes a weapon against the working class. The pogroms of May 2008 are the latest disaster to arise from nationalism. [Ελληνικά] read full story / add a comment
southern africa / migration / racism / opinion / analysis Wednesday September 10, 2008 14:58 by Steffi
Some of the people attacked in recent xenophobic pogroms in South Africa were born in South Africa or have a South African passport. Aren’t they South Africans? What makes a South African? How many generations must one have lived here to be accepted? What skin colour does one have to have? When thinking about this it quickly becomes clear that who is a South African and who is not is not a scientific decision. It is about what people think and want and this changes over time. read full story / add a comment
Alan Lipman at his home in Johannesburg
southern africa / migration / racism / interview Friday September 05, 2008 20:04 by Jon   image 1 image
Alan Lipman served as an early member of the underground SACP, which had been re-established in 1953 after its predecessor, the CPSA, was outlawed in 1950. He and his wife Beata worked in an SACP front organisation planning the Congress of the People, which adopted the Freedom Charter in Kliptown in 1955, and Beata beautifully hand-lettered the official version of the Charter. But after intense disagreements over Soviet imperialism with SACP leader Michael Harmel, the couple split with the Party in 1956. Alan engaged in an act of sabotage against the records office of the hated new pass system for black women. The couple fled into exile in 1963, narrowly avoiding being swept up in the Rivonia Treason Trial. In exile, Alan became involved with the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and later shifted towards a libertarian socialist position. The Lipmans returned to South Africa in 1990 and although he initially ran as an ANC ward candidate, he became disillusioned with the neo-liberalism of the ANC and later became associated with the ZACF with whom he conducted a well-received workshop in Orange Farm in May 2006. read full story / add a comment

southern africa / miscellaneous / opinion / analysis Tuesday June 24, 2008 18:14 by Uhuru Network
A libertarian perspective on the elections in Zimbabwe, first published on April 14, 2008. It is thus a little bit dated and does not take into account the run-offs, the MDC's recent pull-out and where this leaves the Zimbabwean people. read full story / add a comment

southern africa / gender / press release Friday June 13, 2008 19:57 by ZACF Gender Working Group
We, Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF), were recently shocked to hear about another homophobic murder in Johannesburg and extend our sympathy and solidarity to the LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex) community of South Africa, that has had to suffer from oppression and discrimination so often within a short period of time. The murder of drag queen Daisy Dube is yet another horrible chauvinistic murder and adds to the escalating number of people killed in homophobic violence in South Africa in recent times, including 10 lesbians killed since just 2006. read full story / add a comment

[ Nederlands] [ Ελληνικά] As the media, the politicians and the "experts" rack their brains in search of the cause of the "criminality" and "xenophobia" that has killed 42 people in 10 days and driven 15 000 from their homes, organisations of the working class have come closer to the truth than any of these wise men and women.

La risoluzione di queste crisi congiunte in favore dei poveri e dei lavoratori richiede un'azione diretta di massa e solidarietà. [ English ] read full story / add a comment
