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.

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.
