Ινδονησία / Φιλιππίνες / Αυστραλία / Ιστορία (γενική) Friday July 24, 2009 - 18:44 by Dmitri (MACG - personal capacity)
Μια συνοπτική ιστορία των βίαιων συγκρούσεων ανάμεσα στους ναύτες του Σίδνεϊ και την αστυνομία μετά την απόπειρα των αστυνομικών να συλλάβουν έναν άνδρα που ήταν ντυμένος σαν γυναίκα. ... read full story / add a comment

indonésia / filipinas / austrália / movimento anarquista Saturday June 20, 2009 - 02:47 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.

Che cosa intendiamo quando usiamo il termine 'working class'? Dobbiamo riconoscere che il termine ha perso pressoché qualsiasi significato in una normale conversazione. Politici, giornalisti, accademici e radio-urlatori ci direbbero che qualsiasi persona con una formazione professionale in paesi sviluppati come l'Australia o la Nuova Zelanda fa oggi parte della classe media. In qualche modo, verso la fine del XX secolo, la classe operaia sarebbe magicamente evaporata dalla faccia del pianeta. ... read full story / add a comment

What do we mean when we use the term 'working class'? We have to admit that the term has pretty much lost any meaning in normal conversation. Politicians, journalists, radio loudmouths and academics would have us believe that anyone with a bit of vocational training in developed economies like Australia and NZ are now miraculously middle class. Somehow, over the last half century, the working class has magically evaporated from the face of planet earth. ... read full story / add a comment

This is a call-out to independent booksellers, zinesters, activist groups and individuals who would like to run a stall or a workshop at this year's Bookfair. Over the past 4 years, the Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair has gathered hundreds of people from Melbourne and beyond to share ideas, attend workshops and strengthen networks. In the past we have had info and discussions covering topics such as Anarchism, Aboriginal and Indigenous Sovereignty, Land Rights and Colonialism, Sexism and Gender, Feminism, Justice, Sexual Assault, Workplace Struggles, Community Spaces, Environmental Action and much more. We hope this year will continue to build on the ideas and networking and welcome a broader audience and participation. So please get involved and be a part of the 4th Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair!

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.

imageDefeat the Liberals with a General Strike Dec 10 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

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.

imageIn response to the budget Jul 09 by Anarchist Affinity 0 comments

There is no budget emergency. This budget is a gross assault on the conditions of the working classes, smuggled in under contrived hysteria about debt. Meanwhile, Australia’s debt to GDP rate is the third lowest in the OECD. The 2014 budget is simply concerned with enhancing the profitability of corporate Australia and the power of the state on the backs of working people. The poorest people in our society will be the most affected – this means people of colour, Aboriginal people, women, young people and people with disabilities.

imageSilent No Longer: Confronting Sexual Violence in the Left Mar 26 by Rebecca Winter 2 comments

For too long sexual violence survivors have been sacrificed at the altar of ‘movement building.’ This approach has a massively destructive impact on survivors, but it also prevents us from creating the kind of movements that we need. We must create social movements which build the revolutionary collective power of the working classes to confront all systems of oppression and exploitation. But to do this we need to start practicing what we preach. We need to challenge misogynist attitudes about sexual violence within our midst and create enduring structures which allow us to support survivors and hold perpetrators to account. Only then can we genuinely claim to be fighting for anarchism and social justice.
