Like in 2008, the recent wave of anti-immigrant violence and looting of foreign-owned stores that followed King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners must “pack their bags and leave” quickly spread to cities and townships across the country. Unlike other places in Johannesburg, however, there were no reports of xenophobic violence in Thembelihle and, although the violence spread to numerous parts of Soweto in 2008, this adjacent township was unaffected then too. This article, based on an interview with an activist from the Thembelihle Crisis Committee (TCC), looks at how working class self-organisation and solidarity helped curb or prevent the outbreak of xenophobic attacks and attempts to draw lessons for preventing future attacks.

The xenophobic violence and looting following King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners “pack their bags and leave” spread to cities and townships across the country. However, the recent attacks are not an isolated incident; nor is Zwelithini solely responsible for fomenting it. Local elites – particularly those linked to the ruling party – also encourage anti-immigrant attitudes and actions. This article, based on discussions with Abahlali baseFreedom Park activists, looks at how local elites stimulate ‘xenophobia’ to protect their class interests, as well as how progressive working class activists have responded.

In 2005, the Partiya Karkêren Kurdistani (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) (PKK) announced that it considered the nation-state a hindrance on the road to freedom, and that its strategic objective was not the establishment of a state but of an interlinked network of councils as the basis of self-determination and a new way of living together. The objective of this article is to discuss and explain the PKK’s understanding of politics as it evolved in the 2000s by looking at two concepts: ‘democratic autonomy’ and ‘democratic confederalism.’ This article will put these concepts in a historical and comparative perspective, and contextualise them in wider discussions in political and social sciences. The question central to this contribution is how these concepts make sense in the context of political theory, and how they have the potential to address fundamental shortcomings in modern democracy. Data has been collected by the study of primary sources and interviews. read full story / add a comment

As working class activists, we should share experiences with – and learn from – working class struggles in other places. The ruling class organises worldwide to exploit and dominate our class. So we need to organise resistance to defend our interests everywhere. And we can only benefit from arming ourselves with lessons from different working class movements.

In the October Revolution of 1917, the Bolshevik Party, together with other revolutionaries, overthrew the Provisional Government established in February and – together, initially, with left Social Revolutionaries – seized power. How did the Bolsheviks – a minority just eight months earlier, when the February Revolution overthrew the Tsar and established the Provisional Government – come to power so quickly? How did this small force emerge from relative obscurity to win large sections of the working class to its programme and take power? Herein lies the root and essence of United Front policy in a traditional Marxist sense. First published in issue 88 of Workers World News Part 1: NUMSA and the ‘United Front Against Neoliberalism’

The United Front tactic – aimed at uniting masses of workers in action and winning Communist leadership for the working class – was adopted as policy by the Communist International (Comintern) in 1921 and will be discussed later in this series. However, there are important examples of working class unity in action which predate Comintern policy and bear relevance to the united fronts discussion. One often-cited example is the united front to defend the gains of the February Revolution from a military coup in Russia in 1917, which will be discussed in the next article in this series.

Before looking at this, however, there is another example of proletarian unity in action – that didn’t seek to win Communist leadership – which warrants attention; that of a revolutionary worker-peasant alliance. This conception of united front action found expression in Italy’s anti-militarist “red blocs” and it is to these that we now turn.

NUMSA: The United Front is a weapon for uniting the working class.

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.

El primero de mayo es reconocido en el mundo como un día de actividades de movilización relacionadas con el trabajo, en el cual se mezclan infinidad de concepciones, prácticas, deseos y añoranzas de muchos individuos y grupos organizados, aun su carácter reivindicativo de las luchas del proletariado mundial no parece en nuestros días haber una confrontación de clases tal como las ocurridas en Chicago a finales del siglo XIX. De ahí la obvia excusa para que reflexionemos sobre eso del trabajo y el trabajador. ¿Ha mejorado su situación? ¿Se vislumbran siquiera en el horizonte las siluetas de una nueva sociedad? ¿Se ha perdido el rumbo o nunca lo ha habido? read full story / add a comment

Estas manifestaciones han sido nutridas por la clases medias y altas, estudiantes universitarios, grupos fascistoides, ongs y una gama variopinta de población, apoyados por USAID (agencia de cooperación y ayuda de los gringos a la pobreza que ellos mismos crean) y la fundación Open Society Institutes del multimillonario George Soros. read full story / add a comment

Durante esos tres días se contó con actividades como charlas, debates y exposiciones que reflejaron parte de las experiencias de trabajo sobre todo las que se vienen desarrollando alrededor de las letras y la escritura. Hubo una muestra permanente de material escrito a cargo de las editoriales, librerías y distribuidoras, además de un taller de encuadernación casera, todo acompañado de teatro, bazares, comidas, cafés y una significativa asistencia no solo de colectivos e individualidades libertarias sino de muchas otras personas afines y gustosos de la literatura anti-autoritaria. read full story / add a comment

There has been much hype, amongst the media and sections of the public, in the run up to this year’s provincial and national elections in South Africa and, for some, the arrival of new parties to the electoral arena has renewed their faith in the possibility of an electoral solution to the myriad of problems facing South Africa. Politicians from across all parties have been using this hype and a seemingly renewed faith in the ballot box to their advantage. The question, therefore, is: can equality, socialism, national liberation or ‘economic freedom’ – or even a respite from state violence – for a majority be brought about through parties and activists entering into the state or through voting for parties that promise not to use the state for violent or oppressive means; or will this only lead to a dead-end for the working class yet again? read full story / add a comment

Construido en medio de vibrantes montañas por las que atraviesa sinuoso el río Cauca, desde siglos atrás permanece habitado por comunidades que defienden con valentía el futuro de sus descendientes. Los pequeños mineros tradicionales marmateños tienen la férrea convicción que los cerros les pertenecen, que las minas de sus abuelos son de sus nietos, que la entrada de las compañías extranjeras en locomotoras desarrollistas amenazan su modo de vida y que el Paro (léase bloqueo de vías, acciones directas o vías de hecho) es necesario para que el gobierno tenga en cuenta sus justas exigencias. read full story / add a comment

Las acciones legítimas de sacar a los actores armados del territorio CXAB WALA KIWE del Norte del Cauca, por la defensa de la madre tierra, es una consecuencia lógica, sabia y de absoluta resistencia de un pueblo digno cansado y atropellado por un sistema de muerte: el capitalismo. Muchas y muchos creen que este es solo asunto de hace unos cuantos meses. Hay que recordar que nuestros compañerxs indígenas están en lucha milenaria y se niegan a desaparecer. Uno de sus mayores logros ante los nuevos inquisidores en la época de la independencia, no precisamente por la aristocracia criolla, sino como fruto de la insurrección comunera, fue el otorgar reconocimiento a los resguardos indígenas “mientras no se hayan vendido o permutado.” (Antonio García, Los Comuneros, p.245, Ed. Desde Abajo), Algunos resguardos desaparecieron, pero otros se han mantenido, han sido refugio, se han fortalecido y son la manera de permanencia y conservación de las culturas indígenas y del territorio. read full story / add a comment

Depuis plus d'un mois et demi, de larges secteurs de la société sont mobilisés contre la loi travail, et l'opinion publique rejette très massivement ce nouveau coup porté aux travailleur-ses.
Plus d'un million de manifestant-e-s sont descendu-e-s dans la rue lors de la mobilisation interprofessionnelle du 31 mars, à laquelle s'ajoutent des mobilisations dans la jeunesse ou encore la multiplication des Nuits Debout. Ce mouvement de fond exprime un ras-le-bol et catalyse l'exaspération liée aux attaques incessantes contre les salarié-e-s pour le plus grand bénéfice du patronat.
Alors qu'au mois de mai, le texte de loi sera débattu au Parlement, l'enjeu est d'augmenter massivement le rapport de force en faveur des travailleur-ses, chômeur-ses et de la jeunesse pour que ce projet de régression sociale soit abandonné. Les prochaines mobilisations du 28 avril et du 1er mai doivent marquer un tournant pour construire un blocage économique qui impose au gouvernement de reculer.

Συχνά αναφέρεται ότι κατά βάση η υποχρεωτική στράτευση, ανεξαρτήτως κράτους, νομιμοποιείται κοινωνικά από τις εκάστοτε κυρίαρχες ιδεολογίες, τις πολεμικές και θρησκευτικές ιδεοληψίες, την πολιτική και κρατική διαχείριση και τους εθνικισμούς. Αυτό που αναφέρεται λιγότερο συχνά είναι ότι όλα τα παραπάνω, και φυσικά η κοινωνική νομιμοποίηση της υποχρεωτικής στράτευσης, αποδυναμώνονται -αν δεν απονομιμοποιούνται- από τις κοινωνικές αντιστάσεις και τις αρνήσεις των καταπιεσμένων.

imageZapata y el indígenismo Apr 27 by Lucha Libertaria - Rebeldía Contrainformativa 0 comments

Hace poco hace 97 años (el 10 de Abril), moría Emiliano Zapata tras ser manipulado y engañado para ser abatido en una emboscada donde ni siquiera se encontraba preparado por las fuerzas estatales. Un militante, un revolucionario social que hasta el último día de vida luchó por la transformación total de la sociedad de forma conjunta con el pueblo, para alcanzar la verdadera justicia social. Zapata ,si bien nunca se definió o se tuvo conocimiento de un conciencia deliberadamente anarquista, su praxis y su lucha por la Tierra y la Libertad, son evidentemente una praxis libertaria. Además, es claro que se agrupó durante el periodo de la revolución mexicana, con gran cantidad de individuos libertarios, que variaban desde militantes del Partido Liberal Mexicano, durante su periodo comunista libertario, cuando había una enorme influencia magonista; hasta otras organizaciones como fueron las feministas libertarias, Las Hijas de Anahuac. Estos y muchos otros individuos que compartieron experiencias, charlas y luchas con Zapata fueron configurando en él, así no fuera con un discurso explícitamente anarquista, al Zapata que vendría a ser reconocido con el máxime: “La tierra es de quien la trabaja.”

23 de abril de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Ao contrário dos argumentos baseados no senso comum, o processo brasileiro de impeachment da presidente Dilma Rousseff, e sua caracterização como um golpe institucional, não formam um fenômeno político essencialmente nacional ou doméstico. Como todas as mudanças de regime ou desestabilizações regionais na América Latina, há uma presença constante, direta ou indireta, de forças oficiais ou oficiosas dos Estados Unidos da América. O senso de humor político aplicado para os momentos mais trágicos nos faz lembrar que: “o risco de golpe de Estado é menor em território soberano dos Estados Unidos porque lá não tem embaixada dos EUA!”.

textRemembering the 1916 rebellion in Ireland together Apr 20 by Andrew 3 comments

Almost a century ago, an armed insurrection took place in Ireland to end British rule and to establish an independent Irish Republic. The 1916 Rising was soon accompanied by major popular revolts against World War One across Europe and later emulated by anti-colonial movements across the Global South. When it comes to remembering the 1916 Rising, why do conservative politicians and historians want to convince us that it would have been better for us if Pearse and Connolly had stayed at home? Why did the state parade lots of military equipment and personnel down O’Connell Street to mark the centenary? Why did so many people turn out to watch it? This panel attempts to think through the meaning of 1916 for us today, and the politics at stake in how these events are remembered, forgotten, and mis-remembered.
