Considering these political implications and the revolutionary tendency of the peasant struggle, we urge to have a solid international solidarity. And on the behalf of the peasants, we need input on how to challenge these laws on international scale. We have made infrastructure of struggle in the village: community radio and social center. And also there’s twice of solidarity actions conducted by our comrades in Melbourne and Perth (due to the involvment of Australian Kimberly Diamond). We are in dire need for help to make this struggle successful without any interference of the leftist institution and its disgusting network. Please contact us for furtrher collaboration and we will update you with a more extensive and comprehensive data of the struggle. This letter are not our own initiative but were a result of our meetings with the PPLP-KP. ... read full story / add a comment

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.

The Australian Federal election campaign grinds on, with most people being heartily sick of the whole thing. Neither the Liberals nor Labor are trusted by most voters and the major parties are horrified at the drift of voters to minor parties of all stripes. Anarchists have something to say about this, something deeper than just advising people about voting. We say if you’re looking to fix the problems in society, Parliament is the wrong place.

As many of you know, Jack 'The Anarchist' Grancharoff died on the 15th of May, at his home in Quaama, South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, aged 91. He died 'with his boots on' - he seemed to have risen from a chair, with an open book and a glass of something interesting on the table, collapsed onto the floor and was found a day or two later.

If we want peace, we must follow the example of the workers and worker-soldiers who ended WWI. We must build a working class movement which spans across frontiers and cuts the ground out from under the capitalist governments that have no solution for international problems but war. We must make a workers' revolution and overthrow capitalism. And only then will we be able to build a world of liberty, equality and solidarity – a world at peace.

The United Patriots Front, which is a Fascist split-off from the far Right Reclaim Australia, held a rally in Richmond on Sunday 31 May. They wanted to rally in front of the Richmond Town Hall, but were opposed by the Campaign Against Racism & Fascism*. The Fascists came off second best.

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.

imageMAY DAY 2016 May 01 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The labour movement in Melbourne, though far declined from its former strength, has neither totally given up the ghost nor been allowed quarter by its enemies. Unions campaign for health and safety, against insecure work and against the use of temporary work visas to undermine labour standards. The campaigns, though, are undermined by the conservatism and timidity of the union officials, their support for the Labor Party and their nationalist focus on “Aussie jobs”, which interferes with building the necessary solidarity between local workers and super-exploited migrant workers. Meanwhile, the capitalists are proceeding with legislation to destroy the construction workers' union (CFMEU) and bring the entire union movement under close State supervision.

imageClose Hazelwood justly Jul 10 by MACG 0 comments

And so the question arises – who can abolish capitalism and how can we manage to do it? Again we say the only way to abolish capitalism is through workers’ revolution. By organising in the workplace and taking control out of the hands of the capitalists we can stop the capitalists destroying the environment and begin active reconstruction of economic processes. We can use the campaign to close Hazelwood to open discussion with workers who want to save the planet, but don’t want to become human sacrifi ces in the process.

imageReclaim Australia is one brick in the wall Jul 02 by MACG 0 comments

We must go a few steps further, therefore, than just engaging in anti-racist and antifascist organising. We must fight the ongoing displacement of Aboriginal people from their homelands in Western Australia. We must fight the mass incarceration and illegalisation of people seeking asylum in this country. We must confront all of these “single” issues. They are part of an entire against the working class and our communities, by the Government, capital and the State.

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.
