En la tarde del pasado miércoles 13 de marzo se realizó una concentración en defensa de la Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz (JEP), ante las objeciones que el gobierno de Iván Duque del Centro Democrático, presento a puntos sustanciales de esta legislación, surgida en marco del proceso de paz entre el gobierno de Juan Manuel Santos con la antigua insurgencia de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia-Ejército del Pueblo (FARC-EP), proceso al que Duque y su partido se opusieron de forma sistemática y hoy en el poder se han propuesta “hacer trizas” de forma progresiva. ... read full story / add a comment

The question of state government elections and running a Workers or Socialist political party continues to be raised in the working class movement and the Left globally. As we may know, there was excitement about the rise of Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour Party in Britain, left political parties in certain parts of Europe and Latin America and, more recently, certain shifts to more centrist positions in the United States amongst a section of the Democratic Party calling themselves “Democratic Socialists”. In South Africa, many workers and some activists seem cautiously optimistic by NUMSA’s formation of the Socialist Revolutionary Workers Party that will seek to participate in the 2019 general elections. ... read full story / add a comment

Um apelo à unidade da esquerda socialista é amplamente ouvido em toda África do Sul, mas ele é frequentemente interpretado como um chamado à unidade da práxis (unidade no programa teórico e na ação). Isso muitas vezes é enquadrado como a transcendência de velhas divisões (estas vistas como antiquadas, sectárias ou descartadas como dogmáticas), e outras vezes como unidade a fim de agir (retoricamente posta como o oposto da teoria de gabinete). O que nós, anarquistas revolucionários, pensamos? English ... read full story / add a comment

A call for socialist Left unity is heard widely today in South Africa, but is usually taken as a call for unity of praxis (unity in theoretical programme and action). This is sometimes framed as transcending old divides (these seen as outdated, divisive or dismissed as dogmatic), and sometimes as unity in order to have action (rhetorically set up as the opposite of “arm chair” theory).

What do we as revolutionary anarchists think? ... read full story / add a comment

In this education series we look at experiments, which have arisen through working class struggles, to create alternatives to capitalism. This will include looking at present and past alternatives to capitalism. In doing this, we are not saying these experiments should be carbon copied – they have often taken place in very different times and contexts.

Rather we are trying to show that, through struggle and experimentation, new societies that overturn capitalism can be brought into being; even under very harsh conditions. This, we believe, provides hope to working class struggles: what we have today under the capitalist and state system can be ended and replaced by a better society. Experiments in alternatives show clearly how another world is possible.

In this article, the first article of the education series on alternatives to capitalism, we look at an experiment that is taking place today, known as the Rojava Revolution, to overturn capitalism and the state system in northern Syria (which is being subjected to an imperialist and civil war). In Rojava a social revolution, influenced by libertarian socialism, has been underway since 2012 and a new society has emerged in the process.

Πώς θα έπρεπε οι αναρχικοί των ΗΠΑ να ανταποκριθούν στην αύξηση του ενδιαφέροντος για το σοσιαλισμό; Υπήρξε αύξηση του ενδιαφέροντος των ΗΠΑ για τον «σοσιαλισμό», ιδίως μεταξύ των νέων ενηλίκων. Ποια είναι η σημασία αυτού; Τι σημαίνει "σοσιαλισμός" στους ανθρώπους; Γιατί συμβαίνει αυτό τώρα; Τι εμποδίζει την ανάπτυξη ενός σοσιαλιστικού κινήματος; Ποια θα πρέπει να είναι η αντίδραση των αναρχικών και άλλων αντιεξουσιαστών σοσιαλιστών; ... read full story / add a comment

There has been an increase of U.S. interest in "socialism," especially among young adults. What is the significance of this? What does "socialism" mean to people? Why is this happening now? What is holding back the development of a socialist movement? What should be the reaction of anarchists and other anti-authoritarian socialists? ... read full story / add a comment

No hi ha dubte que el 21D acaba alguna cosa. No és la fi de la partida però el que vingui el 22D ja serà diferent. Ja estarem a una altra cosa. Segons totes les evidències Espanya és un país enmig d’una greu crisi, atès que l’Estat s’ha fos ja la guardiola de les pensions, o que el BCE ha decidit no comprar-nos més deute. Per pagar les pensions estan parlant de vendre tots els hospitals! Arribarà un altre cicle de mobilitzacions socials? Fins a on seran capaços d’arribar?

Οι αντικοινοβουλευτικοί συνδικαλιστές και αρκε­τές κομμουνιστικές φράξιες που επικαλούνται το μαρξισμό, απέρριψαν την κατάκτηση των δημόσιων αρχών από τους σοσιαλιστές -είτε πριν από την επανάσταση, είτε στη διάρκεια της.
Όποιος κοιτάξει την ιστορία του σοσιαλισμού έπειτα από την αποπομπή των αναρχικών, θα μπορέ­σει να δει μόνος του τη βαθμιαία υποβάθμιση του μαρξισμού σαν πολιτικής φιλοσοφίας μέσα από τις ερμηνείες και την πρακτική των σοσιαλδημοκρατών.
Ο λενινισμός είναι, αναμφίβολα, μια επιστροφή στο επαναστατικό πνεύμα του μαρξισμού, συνάμα όμως είναι και μια επιστροφή στις ψευδαισθήσεις και στις αφαιρέσεις της μαρξιστικής μεταφυσικής.

Με την διαπάλη, όσο σκληρή κι αν χρειαστεί να γίνει, στους κόλπους της κοινωνικής βάσης. Η ιστορία μας δίδαξε πολλά, γνωρίζουμε τα λάθη και την αφέλεια των πολιτικών μας προγόνων.

There has recently been controversy on the Left over "free speech" for right-wingers (not necessarily fascists). Should it be supported or physically opposed? Some leftists have revived interest in the ideas of Herbert Marcuse on "repressive tolerance" and why it should be opposed. Marcuse's theory is reviewed and arguments are raised against it from a revolutionary anti-authoritarian perspective. ... read full story / add a comment

Alle organizzazioni politiche anticapitaliste che hanno come orizzonte una società egualitaria fondata sulla libertà non sfuggirà la necessità sempre più pressante di costruire situazioni di cooperazione e di coordinamento per sostenere quelle forze sociali che sono il tessuto reale dell'alternativa di oggi e di domani.
Il comunismo, quello libertario, è sempre all'ordine del giorno. ... read full story / add a comment

Corbyn’s strong showing in the June 2017 UK elections has given a big morale boost to the left.  A considerable youth vote, self-mobilising in larger part as a reaction to the ‘me and mine’ selfish society revealed by the Brexit vote seriously set back Tory plans for a fresh wave of Brexit required austerity.  Activists used social networking to overcome what had previously been seen as an all powerful smear machine of the billionaire print press.  Very few outside the radical left expected this outcome, what drove it and more importantly where can it lead?
[ This is a long read so you can also listen to an audio of the text ] This piece is not going to answer that in terms of assumptions and assertions but as far as possible through hard numbers.  66% of 18-24 year old’s voted Labour, only a quarter of that, 18% voted Tory [p4].  27% of those 18-24 year olds said the NHS was the most important issue for them, even though they are least likely to need it [p40].  For the over 65 age group this was flipped, only 23% voted Labour and over twice as many (58%) voted Tory [p4].  In fact, given the way the UK election system works, if only 18-24 year olds had voted, Labour would have been heading for 500 seats.  If it had only been those over 65 voting the Tories would have had over 400 seats. ... read full story / add a comment
