van der Walt, Lucien (2014) “Reclaiming Syndicalism: From Spain to South Africa to Global Labour Today,” Global Labour Journal, vol. 5, no. 2, pp. 239-252.

New article: why it's important to develop a new, transformative vision for trade unions in a world of crisis and inequality; the limits of business unionism and of nationalist, Marxist-Leninist and social democratic approaches; and how anarcho- and revolutionary syndicalism -- as an important historical tradition, as a set of ideas, and as a revolutionary experience, notably in Spain 1936-1939 -- can contribute to the debate. read full story / add a comment

É sempre necessário recordamo-nos com honestidade que o Anarquismo deriva da tradição histórica (ou como chamam os mais antigos, tradição revolucionária), e que enquanto conjunto de ideias, propostas, críticas e soluções que contrariam o método científico advogado pelos marxistas – configurando mera "fábula", como afirmam de má fé seus adversários políticos – prioriza acima de tudo a orientação prática das ideias, visando tão somente à revolução social, sobretudo mediante a realização de seu objetivo finalista de reorganização da sociedade. Este artigo propõe uma reflexão sobre nossa responsabilidade enquanto propagadores e apoiadores do movimento. read full story / add a comment

Il 7 giugno 1914, ad Ancona si svolgono dei disordini tra lavoratori anconetani (principalmente portuari e ferrovieri appartenenti a sindacati autonomi di indirizzo socialista ed anarchico) e forze dell'ordine, schierate per difendere la parata militare celebrativa dello Statuto Albertino. Ancona è all'epoca una città che ha già avuto numerose esperienze di rivolte e sollevamenti popolari: dai moti del pane del 1898 agli scioperi del 1913. In quel periodo inoltre si assisteva alla creazione di un fronte comune di diversi movimenti e sindacati, uniti dall'antimilitarismo. L'opposizione alle politiche di guerra non era una lotta puramente ideologica. read full story / add a comment

For far too long major segments of the working class have been dormant under the illusion that change can be delegated to exterior organizations or parties. When our struggles are bureaucratized and delegated to others, we lose ownership over them and in turn lose many benefits gained through them.

Anarquía no significa un mundo de anarquistas, sino un mundo en donde todas las personas independientemente de su ideología puedan participar equitativamente, y su autonomía solo sea equiparable con la solidaridad que le rodea. El anarquismo como ideología no solo es vigente como ideología, sino como práctica de transformación hacia una sociedad más diversa y justa. read full story / add a comment

Lightly edited transcript from Lucien van der Walt’s discussion at 1st National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) Political School, September 2013. From his debate with Solly Mapaila, 2nd deputy GS of the South African Communist Party (SACP) on anarcho-syndicalist versus Leninist views of the revolutionary potential of unions. A version was printed in ASR #61 2014, pp. 11-20

Captures van der Walt’s main points: the debate on the anarcho-syndicalist view that revolutionary trade unions, allied to other movements, creating a self-managed worker-controlled socialism through mass education, counter-power and workplace occupations; anarcho-syndicalism as a working class tradition; the anarcho-syndicalist view that unions can potentially be more revolutionary than political parties including Communist Parties, & be revolutionary without leadership by parties; the view that electioneering can be replaced with direct action campaigns; that the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939) shows unions taking power and making a bottom-up worker-controlled revolution; and how NUMSA’s current actions refute Marxist-Leninist theory; other problems with that theory’s traditional approach to unions; and the implications of all of this for current debates over the form of a new socialist movement in South Africa and elsewhere; and the nature of the South African ruling class and the primary social contradictions.

Lucien van der Walt is co-author of “Black Flame: The revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism” (w.Michael Schmidt, 2009, AK Press) and co-editor of “Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1870-1940” (w. Steve Hirsch and Benedict Anderson, 2010, Brill). He has a long history of involvement in the working class movements. read full story / add a comment

Mandela, the ANC and the 1994 Breakthrough: Anarchist / syndicalist reflections on national liberation and South Africa’s transition
Shawn Hattingh and Lucien van der Walt


The destruction of the apartheid state form, with its odious policies of coercion and racism, was a major triumph for the working class in South Africa and elsewhere, showing that ordinary people can challenge and defeat systems that seem quite unbreakable. Mandela did play a heroic role, but was also the first to admit that “It is not the kings and generals that make history but the masses of the people, the workers, the peasants, the doctors, the clergy." And indeed, it was the black working class, above all, that through struggle tore down many features of apartheid by the late 1980s, such as the pass law system, the Group Areas Act and numerous other odious laws and policies.

The 1994 transition in South Africa was a political revolution, a break with the apartheid and colonial periods of state-sanctioned white supremacy, a “massive advance” in the conditions of the majority. It introduced a new state, based on non-racialism, in which South Africa was to be a multi-racial, multi-cultural but unified country, founded on human rights; welfare and social policy and legislation was transformed; capitalism was kept in place, but despite this, there were very massive and very real changes, political and material, that made qualitative differences in the daily lives of millions of black and working class people. And for millions, it is precisely the association of Mandela with that victory and with those changes that makes him so emotionally powerful.

Yet at the same time, Mandela’s policies and politics had important limitations that must be faced if the current quandary of South Africa, nearly 20 years later, is to be understood. Mandela never sold out: he was committed to a reformed capitalism, and a parliamentary democracy, and unified South Africa based on equal civil and political rights, a project in which black capitalists and black state elites would loom large. These goals have been achieved, but bring with them numerous problems that must be faced up if the final liberation – including national liberation – of South Africa’s working class is to be achieved.

The 1994 breakthrough was a major victory, but it was not the final one, for a final one requires a radical change in society, towards a libertarian and socialist order based on participatory democracy, human needs rather than profit and power, and social and economic justice, and attention to issues of culture and the psychological impact of apartheid.

As long as the basic legacy of apartheid remains, in education, incomes, housing and other spheres, and as long as the working class of all races is excluded from basic power and wealth by a black and white ruling class, so long will the national question – the deep racial / national divisions in South Africa, and the reality of ongoing racial/ national oppression for the black, Coloured and Indian working class – remain unresolved. And so long will it continue to generate antagonisms and conflicts, the breeding ground for rightwing populist demagogy, xenophobia and crime. By contrast, a powerful black elite, centred on the state and with a growing corporate presence, has achieved its national liberation.

international / anarchist movement / debate Friday December 13, 2013 16:12 byLucien VAn der Walt   text 1 comment (last - saturday december 21, 2013 05:24)   image 1 image
Examining the theory and practice of ‘mass’ anarchism and syndicalism, this paper argues against Daryl Glaser’s views that workers’ council democracy fails basic democratic benchmarks and that, envisaged as a simple instrument of a revolution imagined in utopian ‘year zero’ terms, it will probably collapse or end in ‘Stalinist’ authoritarianism—Glaser also argues instead for parliaments, supplemented by participatory experiments. While agreeing with Glaser on the necessity of a ‘democratic minimum’ of pluralism, rights, and open-ended outcomes, I demonstrate, in contrast, that this ‘minimum’ is perfectly compatible with bottom-up council democracy and self- management, as envisaged in anarchist/syndicalist theory, and as implemented by anarchist revolutions in Manchuria, Spain and Ukraine. This approach seeks to maximise individual freedom through an egalitarian, democratic, participatory order, developed as both means and outcome of revolution; it consistently insists that attempts to ‘save’ revolutions by suspending freedoms, instead destroy both. Parliament, again in contrast to Glaser, from this perspective, meets no ‘democratic minimum’, being part of the state, a centralized, unaccountable institutional nexus essential to domination and exploitation by a ruling class of state managers and capitalists. Rather than participate in parliaments, ‘mass’ anarchism argues for popular class autonomy from, and struggle against, the existing order as a means of winning economic and political reforms while—avoiding ‘year zero’ thinking—also building the new society, within and against, the old, through a prefigurative project of revolutionary counter-power and counter-culture. Revolution here means the complete expansion of a bottom-up democracy, built through a class struggle for economic and social equality, and requiring the defeat of the ruling class, which is itself the outcome of widespread, free acceptance of anarchism, and of a pluralistic council democracy and self-management system. read full story / add a comment

O nosso país está numa confusão. A fome, a pobreza, a exploração e a injustiça espreitam.

A classe trabalhadora e os pobres deparam, a cada passo, com os muros altos da injustiça, as cadeias do desemprego e as balas e os cassetetes da polícia.

Os conflitos agitam o país e as esperanças que brilhavam em 1994 estão a desaparecer, envelhecidas, enferrujando sob as águas da ganância, da opressão e da desigualdade; essas esperanças são como um sonho que desaparece quando se desperta para uma realidade sombria.

A questão nacional, as nossas profundas divisões de raça e nacionalidade, continuam sem solução: os políticos, pretos e brancos, pioram ainda a situação com o objectivo de obterem votos. read full story / add a comment

textPalestina-Israele - conflitto senza fine tra il colonialismo sionista ed i palestinesi 17:56 Tue 22 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

Siamo al 13° giorno di guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas. In tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Tutto quello che Israele vuole da questa guerra è rompere l'unità di governo palestinese ed evitare l'accelerazione degli accordi di pace. Il problema causato dalla resa di Hamas, messa in ginocchio dalla crisi economica, alla Autorità Palestinese, deriva dalle scelte del governo egiziano, il quale minaccia molto seriamente quel progetto di divisione permanente dei Palestinesi a cui Israele ha dedicato tanti sforzi. Il solo totale collasso del governo di Hamas nella Striscia di Gaza spaventa Israele più di ogni altra cosa. [English]

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

Proprio quando la pressione dell'Europa su Israele per un compromesso con il governo palestinese stava cogliendo il momento giusto favorito dal calo in atto delle esportazioni israeliane, Israele ha cercato di trarre vantaggio dal rapimento dei tre giovani coloni applicando i "piani nel cassetto" nel tentativo di incendiare una intifada armata. Quasi tre settimane di propaganda basata su menzogne (come se sapessero già della morte dei tre giovani) hanno inondato i media. Quando alla fine i corpi sono stati "trovati", le bugie sono risultate per quello che erano e le intimidazioni per far accendere l'intifada hanno fallito l'obiettivo. I crescenti crimini di odio dell'estrema destra israeliana e l'uccisione di un giovane palestinese a Gerusalemme Est occupata hanno scatenato una dura reazione nella città e nelle zone palestinesi all'interno dei confini del 1948.

When the European pressure on Israel to compromise with the Palestinian elite collected momentum - already diminishing exports, Israel tried to take advanced of the kidnapped three settlers youth applying "plans from the drawer" trying to ignite armed Intifada. Nearly three weeks of propaganda based on lies (as if they are searching for the already known to them to be dead three youth) was all over the media. When lastly the bodies were "found", lies were exposed, and the harassments failed to ignite Intifada. The mounted hate crimes of the Israeli extreme right and murder of a Palestinian youth of the annexed East Jerusalem ignited an extreme response there and within the Palestinian regions within the 1948 borders. Vicious harassment of US-Palestinian youth - cousin of the murdered youth which was video typed became together with the video of the kidnapped cousin became viral all over the world and ignited solidarity demos all over the world.

16 de julho de 2014, Bruno Lima Rocha

Um dos temas de fato proibidos para os candidatos favoritos na próxima eleição presidencial é a subordinação do Banco Central (BC) à vontade política dos eleitores. A cartilha neoliberal defende a “independência” da autoridade monetária, de modo que esta não seja “politizada”. Este absurdo conceitual até poderia ser considerado esdrúxulo caso não fosse tão perigoso. Tornar independente da vontade soberana - ainda que exercida de forma indireta - o centro nervoso dos recursos coletivos é como condicionar a capacidade de governo a um gesto de obediência ao sujeito oculto e onipresente chamado de “mercado”.
