Ya la situación está volviendo a la "normalidad" poco a poco. Y van quedando claras algunas cosas. En primer lugar, la enorme solidaridad de nuestro pueblo que salió al cruce de la emergencia económica y organizó ollas populares, reparto de viandas, canastas... Cientos de organizaciones sociales, sindicales, vecinas y vecinos organizaron lo más elemental: enfrentar el hambre, pero no de cualquier manera sino con solidaridad y un claro sentido de clase. Se salió a poner el hombro en un momento complicado, donde reinaba el pánico y el aislamiento total. Con todas las medidas sanitarias de precaución, esa tarea se hizo y se hace. Porque la "emergencia sanitaria" podrá superarse totalmente en un tiempo; pero la emergencia del hambre va a perdurar bastante más, y todo parece indicar que se profundizará. ... read full story / add a comment

Αλλά αν δεν πάρουμε τους χώρους εργασίας από τους καπιταλιστές, δεν θα τους νικήσουμε ποτέ. Οι νίκες μας θα είναι μερικές και αναστρέψιμες. Οι αγώνες μας εκτός των χώρων εργασίας πρέπει επίσης να κατευθύνονται προς την οικοδόμηση μιας τέτοιας δύναμης που μπορεί να επιβάλει ένα άλλο είδος πολιτικής. Μόνο η πολυφυλετική, πολυπολιτισμική και διαφορετικής φύσης εργατική τάξη μπορεί να απαλλαγεί από τον κόσμο του καπιταλισμού. ... read full story / add a comment

En un país en donde son tan pocas las convenciones colectivas de trabajo y la negociación salarial por empresa o industria es tan débil, la negociación del salario mínimo nacional es una oportunidad para llegar a la mayoría precarizada y desorganizada de la clase trabajadora y proyectar una identidad obrera y popular común más allá de marcos locales y sectoriales. ... read full story / add a comment

January 8, 2020 will go down in the history books as the world’s largest 24-hour general strike to date. In India, more than 250 million workers went on strike during the general strike or “Bharat Bandh”, which was joined by ten major unions as well as a number of independent associations. Associations organising bank employees, farmers and teachers, but also the student movement played a leading role. The electricity supply was also affected, with up to 1.5 million people going on strike in the power stations. The same applies to local and long-distance public transport. Across the country there were also rail blockades. ... read full story / add a comment

Mandy Moussouris and Shawn Hattingh explain the roots and principles of anarcho-syndicalism and what these mean for the practice of worker education in movements inspired by these principles and traditions. Emphasising the democratic practice, working class rooted, organic and critical nature of the pedagogy, they explain that the practice seeks to intersect employed and unemployed women and men. Practically, the education provides a platform for post-revolutionary practice of direct democracy at the point of production and, thus, naturally included practical skills such as trades, accounting and sciences. ... read full story / add a comment

Nuevamente el pueblo catalán está en las calles. Hace dos años ese mismo pueblo salió a defender una convocatoria a un plebiscito popular sobre la independencia con importantes movilizaciones. La respuesta del Estado Español fue la represión. La respuesta popular: la huelga general convocada por CSC, IAC, CGT, CNT, Solidaridad Obrera y otras organizaciones del campo popular. Por su parte, un conjunto de organizaciones anarquistas emitieron en esos días una declaración muy lúcida y ajustada de dicho proceso de lucha. ... read full story / add a comment

El despliegue de las nuevas tecnologías en el ámbito laboral ha generado enormes expectativas y una sostenida alza de la productividad del trabajo. Las nuevas tecnologías están revolucionando la sociedad del capital, aunque no queda aún claro si podrán constituir una sacudida lo suficientemente fuerte para remontar el bloqueo en la acumulación que dio lugar a la crisis sistémica del 2007 y que no ha podido ser resuelto del todo con la flexibilización cuantitativa y la austeridad, generando un nuevo ciclo de desarrollo.

Don't abandon the unions, or take sides in inter-union rivalries. Build a serious, organised, non-sectarian project of democratic reform and political discussion that spans the unions, including a rank-and-file movement that fosters debate, and opens the treasure-chest of union and left history and theory. Recover the politics of disconnecting from the state as raised by, for example, Occupy and the Rojava Revolution. Replace reliance on the state and parties with struggle, and destructive inter-union rivalry with a serious project of working class counter-power.

This article is about the lack of working class’ support to the people’s movement. It analyses the current situation that surrounds working class and the factors that may contribute in weakening it almost everywhere. In the meantime the article considers the rule of working class as essential and crucial in prevailing any movement or any uprising. ... read full story / add a comment

Trade union renewal is essential but should not be reduced to democratising structures or new recruitment methods. Renewal should centre on a bottom-up movement based on rank-and-file reform movements, and the direct action of workers as a precondition for radical redistribution of power and wealth to workers, community assemblies and councils in a self-managed, egalitarian order based on participatory planning and distribution by need. It must be rooted in an anarcho-syndicalist understanding that unions can profoundly change society. ... read full story / add a comment

Δεν μπορούμε να καταπολεμήσουμε τον αγώνα ενάντια στον σεξισμό, τον ρατσισμό, την ομοφοβία, το θρησκευτικό φανατισμό, το μίσος κατά των τρανς ή οποιαδήποτε άλλη καταπίεση “μετά την Επανάσταση”. Κάτι τέτοιο θα εξασφάλιζε το ότι η Επανάσταση δεν θα έρθει ποτέ. Αντίθετα, πρέπει να επιστρέψουμε στη θεμελιώδη αρχή με βάση την οποία δημιουργήθηκε το συνδικαλιστικό κίνημα - Touch One, Touch All (Η επίθεση στον ένα είναι επίθεση σε όλους). Όλες οι μορφές καταπίεσης, εντός και εκτός χώρων εργασίας, αποτελούν επίθεση στην αλληλεγγύη μας και, επομένως, στην εργατική τάξη στο σύνολό της. ... read full story / add a comment

The struggle of the working class is linked to the revolution in three ways. First, the struggle is located where capital gets its power – in the workplace. Second, the struggle over wages and conditions shows that economic crises are inevitable within capitalism and the looming threat of an irresolvable crisis is ever growing. And third, it is only through struggle that the working class will learn the iron solidarity necessary for revolution. As it casts aside all reactionary prejudices (what Marx called “the muck of ages”), the working class will remake itself as a body of free and equal people fit for a libertarian communist society. ... read full story / add a comment

Auf der ganzen Welt versucht die herrschende Klasse aus Kapitalist*innen, Politiker*innen und staatliche Manager*innen ihre Gewinne zu sichern, indem sie die Arbeiter*klasse für die Wirtschaftskrise zahlen lassen. Einerseits betreiben sie Stellenabbau und zwingen damit die verbleibenden Arbeiter*innen zu noch größeren Leistungen, um die Produktionsziele zu erreichen. Andererseits führen sie einen breit angelegten Angriff auf Löhne, Arbeitsbedingungen und Sozialleistungen. ... read full story / add a comment

El día 3 de octubre en la noche, luego de una gran asamblea en la Universidad Nacional sede Bogotá, se dio una pequeña manifestación que bloqueó la Carrera 30. Sin mediar palabras y en ausencia de alguna acción ilegal que lo requiriera, el ESMAD procedió a aturdir y gasear la concentración en la vía, dando como resultado 4 heridos, frente a esta acción de los uniformados, los estudiantes de la Nacional respondieron levantando las manos, algunos arrodillándose, y todos gritando la consigna “sin violencia, sin violencia”. ... read full story / add a comment

Around the world the ruling class (capitalists, politicians and state managers) is trying to restore its profits by making the working class pay for the economic crisis. One way capitalists do this is by retrenching workers and making the remaining workers work harder to meet production targets, as well as by attacking wages, working conditions and benefits. States help capitalists do this, among other things, by increasing interest rates while giving corporations tax cuts, commercialising and privatising state owned enterprises and outsourcing the provision of basic services. States also help capitalists by undermining workers’ rights, such as the right to strike, in order to make it more difficult for workers to resist these attacks.

Unions have failed to defend workers from the immediate threat of these attacks (by preventing dismissals and defending jobs, wages and conditions), as well as to mount an effective resistance that can prevent further attacks and begin to roll back the devastating effects of neoliberalism. Moreover, union bureaucrats are often complicit in these attacks through deals they make with governments and bosses. A recent example in South Africa is the National Minimum Wage and amendments to the Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Labour Relations Amendment Bill – all of which represent an attack on workers yet were agreed to at Nedlac (the National Economic Development and Labour Council) by the leaders of the three main federations: Nactu, Fedusa and Cosatu.

Faced with this ruling class threat and with union bureaucracies that are either complicit or unwilling to fight, workers in Argentina have begun a process to build unity in struggle and a democratic worker-controlled alternative. ... read full story / add a comment

En los últimos días, se registra un incremento sustancial de las amenazas y asesinatos de líderes y lideresas sociales en todo el país. Desde la elección presidencial del pasado 17 de junio se han asesinado 22 líderes sociales, una persona cada día[1]. El panorama es bastante gris, pues mientras los grandes medios de comunicación se han dedicado a cubrir ampliamente el mundial de fútbol y el gobierno nacional continúa negando la sistematicidad de este fenómeno[2] en un intento por invisibilizar los patrones comunes de la masiva vulneración a los derechos humanos que se está produciendo en el país, tras bambalinas se encuentra la cruda realidad que está marcada por el asesinato, solo en lo corrido de 2018, de 123 líderes y lideresas sociales según las últimas cifras de Indepaz.[3] ... read full story / add a comment

El domingo 17 de junio de 2018 se realizó la segunda vuelta de las elecciones presidenciales de Colombia, en las que se alzó como nuevo jefe de Estado el neoconservador uribista Iván Duque. Para analizar, desde una perspectiva libertaria, los resultados y tendencias de esta coyuntura política, marcada por la escogencia del sexagésimo presidente de la República, apuntamos los siguientes elementos:

1 Participación alta con crecimiento menor de la abstención y el voto nulo
2 De nuevo, triunfo de Duque y retorno de un uribismo debilitado
3 Petro pierde, pero se profundiza el hito para la izquierda
4 Crece el voto en blanco centrista pero se mantiene su marginalidad política
5 Reunificación burguesa: retorno del uribismo y derrota del santismo

There has been a lot of talk about the promise of a National Minimum Wage (NMW) in South Africa. This means wages cannot go below a certain level. But capitalists and politicians continue to eat the food of the workers, the poor and unfortunate. Why? In some cases, the NMW is an improvement – but generally, the NMW is not a “living wage,” meaning a wage on which you can live a decent life. Prices keep going up. This society is based on the maximization of profit, this is its logic, and this means wages are not linked to what the workers and poor need, but to what bosses and politicians need. Wages are a system of exploitation. We live a capitalist society of stress and fear and jealousy, rooted in a system of cheap black labour, and power and profits for the bosses and politicians. We need to fight for something more, take back our unions, and lay the groundwork for an anarchists society, with equality based on workers and community councils. ... read full story / add a comment
