indonesia / philippines / australia / indigenous struggles Saturday February 27, 2010 - 17:00 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group
The unions, and all working class organisations, need to come together to denounce the NT Intervention as the racist atrocity it is, and fight to end it. In the course of this struggle, we can develop a true movement of reconciliation. We can build a society which recognises land rights, and abolishes both wage labour and real estate. We can have a revolution. ... read full story / add a comment

indonésia / filipinas / austrália / movimento anarquista Saturday June 20, 2009 - 03:47 by Rob Sparrow   image 1 image
O texto agora publicado foi traduzido alguns anos atrás e aguardava para ser lançado em livro, mas, pelas mudanças de nossas prioridades editoriais, decidimos divulgá-lo na internet.

“Política Anarquista e Ação Direta” parece ter como pano de fundo as discussões internas ao universo anarquista, particularmente aquelas que buscam distinguir um anarquismo social, voltado para a transformação revolucionária, de um anarquismo individualista, principista e purista que, em nome de dogmas e compreensões quase que religiosas da ideologia, restringe-se à inação.

É neste contexto que ele coloca a necessidade de o anarquismo trabalhar com as reivindicações de curto prazo, que são as que trazem ganhos para o povo aqui e agora e possuem a capacidade de mobilizar e trazer para a luta setores até então adormecidos. Neste contexto entram as lutas pontuais e a eventual pressão em relação ao Estado para a conquista de reformas que beneficiem o conjunto das classes exploradas. Esta discussão é particularmente importante, pois infelizmente há um setor idealista e utópico (no pior sentido das palavras) que prega a revolução social como um objetivo de longo prazo, mas nada propõe para que se caminhe em direção a ela, já que neste caminhar muitas ações envolvem reformas, conquistas de curto prazo que apesar de não serem o fim que queremos alcançar, constituem um meio de luta e propaganda, muitas vezes obrigando o Estado e os patrões a cederem, trazendo hoje melhorias concretas nas condições de vida da população. Distante da luta de curto prazo, o anarquismo passa de uma ideologia com prática política para uma retórica de futuro sem conteúdo prático no presente, perdendo todo seu potencial transformador.

São poucas as pessoas que se mobilizarão em torno da proposta de uma sociedade melhor em 50 ou 100 anos. É por isso que as questões de curto prazo são tão importantes, já que são elas que possuem a capacidade de mobilizar as pessoas que querem um horizonte de luta e de conquista para já. A mobilização pode visar conquistas em relação a diversos inimigos como uma empresa – no caso de uma organização de trabalhadores que reivindica melhores salários, por exemplo – ou o Estado – no caso de uma organização comunitária que reivindica a melhoria de um hospital local, por exemplo. Isso pode incluir diversas reivindicações que, muito ao invés de estabelecer o capital ou o Estado como interlocutores e colaboradores, buscam agregar as pessoas na luta contra estes inimigos de classe. Ainda que o capital ou o Estado cedam, isso não mostra a colaboração do povo com os inimigos de classe, mas uma vitória do povo sobre eles. Além disso, estando organizadas, a tendência é que as pessoas sejam expostas ao conteúdo pedagógico das lutas e que isso aumente seu nível de consciência, permitindo a construção de uma luta de longo prazo. É isso o que sempre foi defendido pelo anarquismo clássico.

É neste mesmo contexto que o autor discute os meios e fins tentando trazer uma reflexão estratégica acerca do caminho a seguir e dos objetivos pretendidos. O que ele tenta mostrar é que o principismo e o purismo daquele anarquismo “que não se mistura com os outros” não permitem a construção de uma tática (um caminho) que aponte para um objetivo estratégico (neste caso, a revolução social). Além disso, o artigo também tenta trazer esta reflexão estratégica às pessoas que acreditam que não há necessidade de ações que sejam coordenadas e organizadas entre si. Sabemos que para terem efeito, as ações devem ser bem refletidas e estarem dentro de um contexto mais amplo de planejamento e organização.

O texto contribui também ao conceituar a ação direta e relacioná-la com uma retomada de poder pelas próprias pessoas que dela participam, o que a liga com o que alguns chamam de construção do poder popular. Neste sentido, parece-nos que a concepção do autor acerca do poder esteja correta, não o considerando o domínio, mas um espaço político de disputa entre forças sociais distintas. Neste caso, a prática da ação direta popular daria ao povo o poder que dele vem sendo usurpado pela classe dominante desde sempre. Contribui ainda ao criar uma distinção entre a ação direta e as “ações simbólicas” e “ações morais”. Ao final contribui com reflexões relevantes sobre a relação entre militantes com a polícia e com a mídia.

Finalmente, podemos apontar um comentário crítico. Como muito se vem fazendo dentro do universo anarquista, aqui o conceito de ação direta também se confunde com os níveis de organização daquilo que chamamos nível político e ideológico (do anarquismo) e nível social (das organizações populares, movimentos sociais, sindicatos, etc.). Vemos a ação direta como um conceito anarquista, mas que não se restringe às práticas anarquistas, já que entendemos que as mobilizações populares devem se dar sem se restringir à participação de militantes de uma ou outra ideologia específica. Portanto, vemos a ação direta como uma posição a ser defendida pelos anarquistas no seio dos movimentos populares, muito mais do que uma posição das “mobilizações de anarquistas”; ou seja, para nós a ação direta é um conceito que pertence mais ao nível social do que ao nível político-ideológico. Para nós, o anarquismo não tem função de “movimento de massa”, mas de ideologia que inspira a atuação de uma minoria ativa que, dentro destes movimentos, defende posições determinadas, dentre elas a da prática da ação direta. Sabemos que os anarquistas não farão a revolução sozinhos e que será necessário um movimento amplo e de maiorias, que agregue as classes que mais sentem a exploração e a dominação da sociedade presente. No entanto, não é qualquer movimento que será capaz de promover a transformação social que pretendemos. Na busca da construção de um movimento revolucionário, pensamos que a ação direta tem muito a contribuir, já que coloca o povo como sujeito de sua própria emancipação.

Uma discussão séria e ampla sobre a ação direta é muito importante hoje, tanto para organizarmos movimentos com bandeiras de reivindicações de curto prazo, quanto para criarmos projetos de longo prazo. É neste aspecto que se dá a relevância deste texto de Rob Sparrow.

Vogliono far credere alle gente di essere nient'altro che “semplici australiani” i quali sono preoccupati dell'"islam radicale".

The far Right “Reclaim Australia” plans to hold an anti-Muslim rally in Melbourne and also at other places around Australia. They want people to believe they’re just “ordinary Australians” who are worried about “radical Islam”. What they’re NOT telling you is that they are Fascists – yes, actual far Right, Hitler-loving racists who have decided it’s a tactical advantage to wrap themselves in Australian flags. [Italiano]

About 25-30 workers at International Flavours and Fragrances (IFF) in Dandenong, Melbourne have initiated a factory occupation in january 25 2015 in response to the company trying to force a pay cut and indefinitely locking them out. SUPPORT IS NEEDED NOW! It's really significant that these workers have decided to take strong industrial action at a point when workers rights are under attack more than ever.

No matter what gains we make in struggle, sooner or later employers and governments will try to roll them back. And no matter how much ground we give, employers and governments will only come back for more. The class war goes on, because whether we fight or we don’t, capital never stops fighting. The struggle will continue until we organise as a class, take the means of production into our own hands, and overthrow the entire capitalist system. Only workers’ revolution can end the class war and bring peace to the human race.

imageFascists crawl out of the sewers Apr 09 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

Fascism is a movement of the ruined middle classes (e.g. small business going out backwards), who aim to take State power by, or with the assistance of, extra-legal force in order to resolve their problems at the expense of the working class. In attempting this, it makes use of demoralised sections of the unemployed who can think little further than where their next meal is coming from.

imageAustralia: la necessità di un movimento di base Feb 08 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

Cresce la campagna per uno sciopero generale per fermare Tony Abbott, ma occorre spingersi più in là e più velocemente. Ogni giorno che passa senza che ci sia una risposta organizzata da parte della classe lavoratrice, aumentano i danni ulteriori che i Liberali infliggono ai lavoratori ed ai loro diritti, aumenta la distruzione dell'ambiente, aumenta la persecuzione dei rifugiati, prosegue la guerra imperialista nell'Asia occidentale, si rafforzano le forze sociali reazionarie e si compattano gli uffici pubblici con gli zeloti della destra. Aspettare fino alle prossime elezioni significa concedere a Tony Abbott il diritto di commettere qualsiasi crimine, anche il più spaventoso. [English]

imageThe need for a rank and file movement Feb 03 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The Campaign for a General Strike to Stop Tony Abbott is developing, but needs to go a lot further and a lot faster. Each day that goes by without an organised working class response is a day that Liberals harm working class people and democratic rights in Australia further, a day to destroy the environment, torture refugees, wage imperialist war in West Asia, stoke reactionary social forces and stack public offices with Right wing zealots. To wait till the next election is to concede Tony Abbott the right to commit any crimes, no matter how appalling. [Italiano]

The movement against Aboriginal deaths in custody is growing. It is growing because the deaths just keep happening, and that’s criminal. We're not just talking about deaths from natural causes. Many of these deaths are far from natural.

The Liberal Government brought down a budget in May that outraged workers across Australia. It is a massive attack on the working class across the board, with cuts to pensions, Medicare, higher education, State funding for health and education, unemployment benefits and much more. There is hardly a sector of the working class that won’t be dramatically affected.
