A call for socialist Left unity is heard widely today in South Africa, but is usually taken as a call for unity of praxis (unity in theoretical programme and action). This is sometimes framed as transcending old divides (these seen as outdated, divisive or dismissed as dogmatic), and sometimes as unity in order to have action (rhetorically set up as the opposite of “arm chair” theory).

What do we as revolutionary anarchists think? read full story / add a comment

In this education series we look at experiments, which have arisen through working class struggles, to create alternatives to capitalism. This will include looking at present and past alternatives to capitalism. In doing this, we are not saying these experiments should be carbon copied – they have often taken place in very different times and contexts.

Rather we are trying to show that, through struggle and experimentation, new societies that overturn capitalism can be brought into being; even under very harsh conditions. This, we believe, provides hope to working class struggles: what we have today under the capitalist and state system can be ended and replaced by a better society. Experiments in alternatives show clearly how another world is possible.

In this article, the first article of the education series on alternatives to capitalism, we look at an experiment that is taking place today, known as the Rojava Revolution, to overturn capitalism and the state system in northern Syria (which is being subjected to an imperialist and civil war). In Rojava a social revolution, influenced by libertarian socialism, has been underway since 2012 and a new society has emerged in the process.

Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff is a popular book about Trump and his administration. It may be popular because it focuses on Trump's bizarre personal peculiarities rather than the political context and the forces which led to Trump's presidency. read full story / add a comment

There has been an increase of U.S. interest in "socialism," especially among young adults. What is the significance of this? What does "socialism" mean to people? Why is this happening now? What is holding back the development of a socialist movement? What should be the reaction of anarchists and other anti-authoritarian socialists? read full story / add a comment

This article is about the direction of PKK , whether getting closer to the Idea of their leader , Ocalan, or not. In the same time it remind the supporters to the Kurdish in Rojava and Bakur, Turkey Kurdistan, the only solidarity attitude neither correct nor useful. They need to have a critical solidarity attitude. read full story / add a comment

No hi ha dubte que el 21D acaba alguna cosa. No és la fi de la partida però el que vingui el 22D ja serà diferent. Ja estarem a una altra cosa. Segons totes les evidències Espanya és un país enmig d’una greu crisi, atès que l’Estat s’ha fos ja la guardiola de les pensions, o que el BCE ha decidit no comprar-nos més deute. Per pagar les pensions estan parlant de vendre tots els hospitals! Arribarà un altre cicle de mobilitzacions socials? Fins a on seran capaços d’arribar?

El repunte autoritario es para toda España, que no quede duda de que un gobierno liberticida y corrupto como el de Rajoy no está solo en esto y que cuenta con el firme apoyo del PSOE y de los grandes medios de comunicación y de las instituciones clave del estado: Tribunal Constitucional, Supremo, Audiencia Nacional, Fiscalía, cuerpos policiales y ejército. Y por supuesto la Monarquía. Ante esto sólo se alza Catalunya, quizás Euskadi, y unas cuantas decenas de miles de personas valientes que han salido a la calle en todas las ciudades para solidarizarse con su proceso de autodeterminación y protestar por la represión. Es necesario pasar de actitudes defensivas (la protesta contra la represión) a una actitud de ofensiva. No se entiende qué están haciendo las organizaciones de las Marchas de la Dignidad o de los llamados frentes sociales que no están convocando a tomar la calle. Pero no para protestar por la represión si no para exigir la República y el fin del antiguo régimen (el de 1978, con su inequívoco origen en 1939). read full story / add a comment

Οι αντικοινοβουλευτικοί συνδικαλιστές και αρκε­τές κομμουνιστικές φράξιες που επικαλούνται το μαρξισμό, απέρριψαν την κατάκτηση των δημόσιων αρχών από τους σοσιαλιστές -είτε πριν από την επανάσταση, είτε στη διάρκεια της.
Όποιος κοιτάξει την ιστορία του σοσιαλισμού έπειτα από την αποπομπή των αναρχικών, θα μπορέ­σει να δει μόνος του τη βαθμιαία υποβάθμιση του μαρξισμού σαν πολιτικής φιλοσοφίας μέσα από τις ερμηνείες και την πρακτική των σοσιαλδημοκρατών.
Ο λενινισμός είναι, αναμφίβολα, μια επιστροφή στο επαναστατικό πνεύμα του μαρξισμού, συνάμα όμως είναι και μια επιστροφή στις ψευδαισθήσεις και στις αφαιρέσεις της μαρξιστικής μεταφυσικής.

Για να τελειώνουμε. Τις διαφορές μας με τον Σταλινισμό, τον Λενινισμό και τα μη αναρχικα ρεύματα που αναφέρονται στην επανάσταση θα τις λύσουμε εκεί που πρέπει, μέσα στους κοινωνικούς αγώνες. Με την διαπάλη, όσο σκληρή κι αν χρειαστεί να γίνει, στους κόλπους της κοινωνικής βάσης. Η ιστορία μας δίδαξε πολλά, γνωρίζουμε τα λάθη και την αφέλεια των πολιτικών μας προγόνων.

Libertarian Socialism is the brand of socialism which opposes statist, authoritarian, and oppressive varieties of socialism. It is anti-statist, radically democratic, self-managing, and humanistic. It blurs the boundaries between anarchism and Marxism, especially between class-struggle anarchist-socialism and libertarian-autonomist Marxism. These 15 essays place libertarian socialism in the context of various anarchists, syndicalists, council communists, decentralists, and libertarian communists--examining their views and histories. read full story / add a comment

There has recently been controversy on the Left over "free speech" for right-wingers (not necessarily fascists). Should it be supported or physically opposed? Some leftists have revived interest in the ideas of Herbert Marcuse on "repressive tolerance" and why it should be opposed. Marcuse's theory is reviewed and arguments are raised against it from a revolutionary anti-authoritarian perspective. read full story / add a comment

Alle organizzazioni politiche anticapitaliste che hanno come orizzonte una società egualitaria fondata sulla libertà non sfuggirà la necessità sempre più pressante di costruire situazioni di cooperazione e di coordinamento per sostenere quelle forze sociali che sono il tessuto reale dell'alternativa di oggi e di domani.
Il comunismo, quello libertario, è sempre all'ordine del giorno. read full story / add a comment

Corbyn’s strong showing in the June 2017 UK elections has given a big morale boost to the left.  A considerable youth vote, self-mobilising in larger part as a reaction to the ‘me and mine’ selfish society revealed by the Brexit vote seriously set back Tory plans for a fresh wave of Brexit required austerity.  Activists used social networking to overcome what had previously been seen as an all powerful smear machine of the billionaire print press.  Very few outside the radical left expected this outcome, what drove it and more importantly where can it lead?
[ This is a long read so you can also listen to an audio of the text ] This piece is not going to answer that in terms of assumptions and assertions but as far as possible through hard numbers.  66% of 18-24 year old’s voted Labour, only a quarter of that, 18% voted Tory [p4].  27% of those 18-24 year olds said the NHS was the most important issue for them, even though they are least likely to need it [p40].  For the over 65 age group this was flipped, only 23% voted Labour and over twice as many (58%) voted Tory [p4].  In fact, given the way the UK election system works, if only 18-24 year olds had voted, Labour would have been heading for 500 seats.  If it had only been those over 65 voting the Tories would have had over 400 seats. read full story / add a comment
