On the 25th of January of 2015, for the first time in Greek history, a left-wing party, SYRIZA, won the general elections with a majority of 36.34%, 8.5 percentage points above Nea Dimokratia (“New Democracy”), the traditional right-wing party and the main force of the departing government coalition. read full story / add a comment

Σήμερα, σε όλη την Ευρώπη, η Αριστερά είναι ενθουσιασμένη καθώς ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ βρίσκεται στην κορυφή των αποτελεσμάτων των ελληνικών εκλογών. Κάποιοι στην αριστερά έχουν προχωρήσει τόσο πολύ που ισχυρίζονται ότι η εκλογή αυτή θα σηματοδοτήσει το τέλος των πολιτικών της λιτότητας, κατά την ορολογία της αγγλικής Αριστεράς, ένα τέλος στην ιδέα ότι δεν υπάρχει εναλλακτική λύση (There Is No Alternative - ΤΙΝΑ). Μια άλλη ένδειξη ότι κάτι σημαντικό συμβαίνει είναι ότι πριν τις εκλογές ένα νέο κύμα φυγής κεφαλαίων ξεκίνησε από την Ελλάδα, με την εκτίμηση ότι 8 δισεκατομμύρια ευρώ μεταφέρθηκαν από τη χώρα κατά τη διάρκεια των τελευταίων εβδομάδων. read full story / add a comment
grèce / turquie / chypre / la gauche / opinion / analyse Monday February 09, 2015 17:25 by Organisation Socialiste Libertaire (Suisse)
La victoire de SYRIZA est un événement politique, non seulement pour la Grèce, mais pour l’Europe. Il s’agit d’une avancée importante dans la période que nous traversons. Le positionnement politique d’une fraction importante du salariat et du peuple, fût-il à travers le vote et la politique de délégation, n’est pas rien. Il y a un engagement des classes populaires dans ce processus politique. Ne pas sous-estimer cette expression, ne pas la mépriser est nécessaire. Cela n’enlève rien à la fermeté et à la clarté d’une politique qui opte pour l’autonomie populaire. L’action directe de masse, la prééminence du rapport de force sont premières. La question centrale est de viser toujours le déploiement du contre-pouvoir, de la contre-hégémonie, avec à la clef la construction du pouvoir populaire. read full story / add a comment

Solo un conflitto sociale diffuso e reticolare, sistematico e costante, in grado di esprimere crescente radicalità dal basso, indirizzata verso la riappropriazione e l'autogestione di risorse comuni, patrimoniali e ambientali, culturali ed economiche, può proporsi come elemento esogeno di rottura democratica e libertaria di netto segno anticapitalista, nei territori e nel paese. read full story / add a comment

La arrolladora victoria electoral de Syriza en los comicios de ayer domingo en Grecia, expresa ante todo el sentimiento mayoritario de rechazo del pueblo griego en contra del traspaso de las deudas de los ricos al pueblo. Pero también expresa un deseo de renovación de la política, en sintonía con esa “indignación” que recorre a la juventud en gran parte del mundo, cansada de la política elitista en beneficio exclusivo del 1% de los súper-ricos, pero que tampoco se siente representada en una izquierda anquilosada, cuyas prácticas, al final de cuentas, no difieren tanto de la politiquería tradicional.

Today, across Europe, the left is excited by Syriza topping the polls in the Greek election. Some on the left have gone so far as to suggest the election itself will mark the end of austerity policies, in the terminology of the Anglo left, an end to the idea that There Is No Alternative (TINA). Another indication that something of significance is happening is that ahead of the election a new wave of capital flight has started from Greece with an estimated 8 billion transferred out of the country over the last few weeks. read full story / add a comment

Διαχρονικά ο «δημοκρατικός» σοσιαλισμός αντιμετωπίζει αρκετά προβλήματα που δεν είχαν φανταστεί οι θεμελιωτές του. Η σοσιαλδημοκρατία θεμελιώθηκε επάνω σε μια αντίφαση: για να μπορέσουν να απαντήσουν επιτυχώς στις εκλογικές πιέσεις, οι σοσιαλιστές αναγκάστηκαν να αναθεωρήσουν ή να βάλουν νερό στις ιδεολογικές τους πεποιθήσεις. Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ δεν αποτελεί εξαίρεση. Ο σύγχρονος καπιταλισμός, έχοντας όλο και περισσότερο τεχνολογικό χαρακτήρα, απαιτεί όλο και πιο εξειδικευμένη τεχνικά εργατική δύναμη με λιγότερη χειρωνακτική εργασία. Η «παραδοσιακή» εργατική τάξη, συνηθισμένη στην πειθαρχημένη χειρωνακτική εργασία της βαριάς βιομηχανίας, έδωσε τη θέση της σε μια διαρκώς αυξανόμενη «νέα» επισφαλή εργατική τάξη, που αποτελείται από εξειδικευμένους οι οποίοι εργάζονται σε ακμάζουσες ελαφρές βιομηχανίες, σε επιχειρήσεις παροχής υπηρεσιών ή στον τουρισμό. read full story / add a comment

Toplumsal devrimlerin etkisi sadece, devrimin gerçekleştiği coğrafyada siyasi ve ekonomik iktidarlara karşı verdikleri mücadelenin etkisi ile sınırlı değildir. Farklı coğrafyalarda oluşturdukları etkiyi, bu etkiyle beraber düşünsel ve pratik değişimlerde görmek açısından önem taşımaktadır. Kobanê Direnişi ile yaygın bir şekilde konuşulmaya, tartışılmaya başlanan Rojava Devrimi bu etkinin ne olduğunun görülmesi açısından şimdi giderek daha önem kazanıyor. read full story / add a comment

At the Congress of South Africa Trade Unions (Cosatu) media briefing on Thursday 21 November 2013, its president Sdumo Dlamini told a journalist that the federation is “yet to decide” whether or not to contribute financially toward the ANC’s 2014 election campaign. The briefing followed a Cosatu central executive committee (CEC) meeting.

Carta Maior. Publicado con el título “La presencia de Vargas en la elección de 2014” de fecha 20 de septiembre de 2014, el texto hace comparaciones plausibles entre el lulismo y el varguismo tardío.

La campaña que se aproxima a la primera vuelta electoral presenta un momento interesante para hacer análisis a partir de posiciones definidas. Como se esperaba, la tendencia de centro-izquierda del gobierno de coalición intenta organizar una defensa inexorable del lulismo y ampliar su base de apoyo. Para demarcar una distancia con la izquierda no electoral en la situación, elegí hacer una crítica (rápida y pública) al texto del periodista Beto Almeida, publicado en el excelente portal pro gobierno Carta Maior. Publicado con el título “La presencia de Vargas en la elección de 2014” de fecha 20 de septiembre de 2014, el texto hace comparaciones plausibles entre el lulismo y el varguismo tardío. El autor, Beto Almeida es corresponsal de TELESUR en Brasil y un respetado periodista. Así, el debate que sigue no es de tipo destructivo, y aunque no concuerde con su paradigma inicial, mantendremos el tono respetuoso en función de la trayectoria del autor que es objeto de la crítica. read full story / add a comment

Para nós Socialistas Libertários, a política dos de baixo não se faz nas urnas, mas no cotidiano do protagonismo de classe e da ação direta. Falar disso no atual momento não significa mais remeter a abstrações ou ao passado “dos anos dourados dos movimentos de massa”, mas remeter a algo que evoca no imaginário coletivo um real exercício do poder do povo. Sem sermos ingênuos acreditando que só ir as ruas basta, sabemos que a falta de organização de base fragiliza os processos de mobilização e facilitam as tentativas de controle pelos dominantes. Deste modo, nossa aposta é nas Ruas como espaço privilegiado da ação política, mas também é a aposta na organização horizontal e de base que fortalece a ação direta, com uma agenda popular que delibera, encaminha e executa seu programa: um programa dos de baixo, que não delega poder a nenhum político de plantão. Ou se vota com os de cima, ou se organiza e se luta com os de baixo! read full story / add a comment
NUMSA: The United Front is a weapon for uniting the working class.
southern africa / the left / opinion / analysis Wednesday September 03, 2014 17:26 by Jonathan Payn   image 1 image
The resolution adopted by the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) to form a ‘United Front against neoliberalism’ – as well as its decision not to endorse the ANC in the elections – represents an interesting development in the political landscape, one which activists should look at carefully and engage.

Due to the language used by the media, the Left, NUMSA’s critics and even NUMSA itself much confusion surrounds the debate – leaving many questions: Is the ‘United Front’ an organisation or attempt to build a new labour federation or political party? Is it an attempt to revive the 1980s United Democratic Front (UDF)? Why NUMSA’s sudden interest in community struggles?

This series, of which this article is the first, aims to clarify these and other questions by looking at the proposal and history of united fronts locally and internationally to clarify key issues and draw lessons that activists can use when engaging the pros and cons of NUMSA’s United Front proposal and if and how they think it should be developed.

O lulismo se aproxima do varguismo como versão contemporânea da relação direta entre líder político e milhões de assistidos

Bruno Lima Rocha, 12 de agosto de 2014

Estamos em pleno ano eleitoral, e no momento em que escrevo estas linhas, tardam menos de dois meses para o pleito. Existe a real possibilidade de reeleição da presidenta Dilma Rousseff (PT) e com isso seria concretizado um feito inédito de dupla reeleição. Dois debates entendem-se como necessários para traçar tanto uma análise do cenário eleitoral como de uma conseqüente crítica por esquerda. O primeiro aborda o cenário eleitoral e as candidaturas oficiais por direita, além do próprio risco de não conseguir emplacar um segundo mandato. O seguinte trata da comparação do espaço político, ocupado pelo lulismo, como uma “continuidade descontínua” do trabalhismo contemporâneo.

OVERVIEW: There is a healthy skepticism among many activists about simple grand plans, arising partly from disastrous Marxist experiments like the Soviet Union. But the opposite — faith that struggles spontaneously reach the best outcomes if freed of theory and plans — has serious problems. Many struggles falter or are captured as old mistakes are made again. Capitalism and the state cannot be defeated by a growing wave of loosely linked alternative “spaces” and experiments. These systems are based on coercion and exploitation; their defeat requires large-scale confrontation by a coordinated bottom-up working class counter-power with clear politics. The point of resistance is to change the world: it is not an aim in itself, just a response; a politics fetishising perpetual resistance must rely on a world of oppression. Closing discussion by labeling views “dogmatic” is a recipe for imposing other positions and elites through the backdoor. There is no need to repeat the tragic errors of the past. Other revolutionary theories from working class struggles – like anarchism and syndicalism — share no blame for the failures of vanguardism and reformism, and have valuable insights on building a participatory, transformative, project of “people’s power,” and on moving from resistance to reconstruction.It is important to speak openly about theory, strategy and vision, and to engage openly with the revolutionary traditions of the popular classes, like anarchism and syndicalism, born of our past struggles, and distilled from those struggles. read full story / add a comment

The leader of the International Marxist Tendency has written an attack on anarchism from his Trotskyist perspective. He makes some correct criticisms of some versions of anarchism, in relation to those who reject revolution or political organization. But he attempts to defend the idea of a "workers' state" by limited quotes from Lenin and by mistating the history of the Russian revolution. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Il leader della International Marxist Tendency ha scritto un attacco contro l'anarchismo da una prospettiva trotzkysta. Alcune sue critiche a certe correnti dell'anarchismo risultano corrette, in particolare in relazione a coloro che rifiutano la rivoluzione o l'organizzazione politica. Ma egli poi cerca di difendere l'idea di uno "stato operaio" ricorrendo a limitate citazioni di Lenin e mistificando la storia della rivoluzione russa. [English] read full story / add a comment

El triunfo de Santos no debería sorprender a nadie: las elecciones no definen nada, sino que sancionan apenas, con un tenue barniz democrático, lo que ya estaba decidido. Con el respaldo del capital financiero, de los empresarios, de los EEUU y de la Unión Europea, era imposible que Santos perdiera. Aunque es discutible el peso de la izquierda en el resultado electoral, lo cierto es que la izquierda tuvo un rol clave no en decidir las elecciones, sino en ayudar a lavar la imagen de Santos ante la opinión pública. Además, al personalizar –junto a los santistas- el proceso de paz en la figura del presidente, han ayudado a que la paz, originalmente una conquista del pueblo movilizado (y en últimas hasta un deber constitucional), pueda ser redefinida en este segundo período de gobierno en los términos de Santos. El presidente tiene las llaves de la paz, ahora sí, bien guardaditas en su bolsillo y no las compartirá con nadie, a menos que sea hacia la derecha. read full story / add a comment
