north america / mexico / anarchist movement Friday October 28, 2011 - 09:33 byJeff Shantz
It is sometimes said that while anti-capitalist and alternative globalization movements are clear on what we do not want, we are less clear on what we do want (socialism, anarchism, specifics). Certainly, recent movements have not been as effective as their predecessors (labor in the 1910s and ‘30s; the social movements of the ‘60s and ‘70s) in sustaining the sorts of practices – intellectual and material – that put into effect aspects of the alternative world we seek. My colleague Alan Sears attributes this current inability to a decline in what he calls “infrastructures of dissent” or what I prefer to call “infrastructures of resistance.” As anti-capitalist movements face possibilities of growth, as happened after Seattle in 1999, questions of organization and the relation of various activities to each other and to broader movements for social change can only become more urgent. Yet, the absence of durable organizations or institutions, formal or informal, rooted in working-class organizations and communities, makes for demoralization or a retreat into subculturalism, as has happened to many of the alternative globalization groups. We now face a pressing need to rebuild “infrastructures of resistance” that might sustain not only activists and organizers, but especially the poor and working-class people who are being disastrously impacted by the current crisis. ... read full story / add a comment

north america / mexico / environment Wednesday August 10, 2005 - 23:35 byJeff Shantz   text 1 comment (last - monday august 15, 2005 - 17:31)
In recent years a variety of social movement and environmental commentators have devoted a great deal of energy to efforts which argue the demise of class struggle as a viable force for social change (See Eckersley, 1990; Bowles and Gintis, 1987; Bookchin, 1993; 1997). These writers argue that analyses of class struggle are unable to account for the plurality of expressions which hierarchy, domination and oppression take in advanced capitalist or what they prefer to call "postindustrial" societies (See Bookchin, 1980; 1986). They charge that class analyses render a one-dimensional portrayal of social relations. The result of this has been a broad practical and theoretical turn away from questions of class and especially class struggle. ... read full story / add a comment

As anarcha-feminists, when we think of "reproductive rights" we usually first think of a woman's right to choose when/where/how she has children in terms of her access to free, safe abortions and multiple birth control technologies. We might think of Emma Goldman standing on a soapbox risking arrest to talk to women about condoms, or of our sisters currently standing on the front lines doing clinic defense actions. But on the flip side of the same coin is the right to choose to have a child, and the access to health care and a safe environment to enable that choice. Creeping liberalism and racism manifest when the equation that abortion equals "individual choice free from state interference", or the interests of white, middle class women become the dominant interpretation of reproductive liberty. ... read full story / add a comment

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.

Libertarian Syndicalist Union (ESE Athens) supports and joins in solidarity movements for the Syrian refugees (victims of war) which live in Greece. Apart from their fair request for direct provision of asylum and travel documents, these people have huge needs in terms of accommodation, food, health care, etc. Hundreds of Syrian refugees reside in hotels (as a stopgap solution), not in good conditions , being under the responsibility of the Greek government and Athens' mayor. We can also report that food supplies for the above refugees are οbtained from charities and solidarity movements.

Un agresivo cáncer te llevó muy temprano. Demasiado incorrecto para recibir un Premio Nacional. Demasiado rebelde para la cultura de los Fondart. No fuiste un escritor embobado por la extravagancia del mundo de las letras, fuiste un hombre pobre, homosexual y creador inigualable: “Hay tantos niños que van a nacer con una alita rota y yo quiero que vuelen compañero. Que su revolución les dé un pedazo de cielo rojo para que puedan volar”.

Today, the gangs that the states created for their interests are running away though the ruins they are leaving behind in Kobanê. While the victory of resistance is echoing in the free streets of Kobanê, the

conviction of freedom is rising above the same ruins in the streets. Like comrade Durutti says, "We are not in the least afraid of ruins". Today and tomorrow, in Kobanê and many other places, we know that a new life is being created among the ruins.

El “Colectivo social ¡Salvemos el río Renaico!” es una organización que funciona en base a autogestión y mantiene autonomía política, está conformada por jóvenes y adultos de la comuna de Renaico y surge por la crítica situación por la que atraviesa el río de dicha comuna a raíz de la intervención de la empresa “CMPC”, canales de regadío irregulares, la introducción de bosques de árboles exóticos y la actual instalación de una central hidroeléctrica de paso por parte de la empresa “Agua Viva S.A.”, pero además este colectivo ha adoptado nuevas problemáticas a sus actividades de agitación, como la construcción de la llamada “Ruta Nahuelbuta” que traerá consigo la instalación de un peaje en Coihue (entrada norte) y otro en Tijeral (entrada sur) afectando directamente al bolsillo de los renaiquinos.

W.E.B. Du Bois was an important African-American scholar and activist. In the 60s there was an effort to create a memorial for him in his home town in Massachusetts. This met with a great deal of right-wing resistance. The history of this controversy shines light on the broader issues of racism and Cold War anti-communism.

imagePor qué como anarquistas apoyamos la lucha autónoma del pueblo mapuche Jan 29 by C.Peste 0 comments

El conflicto entre el Estado chileno y el Pueblo Mapuche nace con la propia formación e imposición del Estado. Y se agudiza con el establecimiento de asentamientos fuertemente militarizados en el territorio del Pueblo Mapuche: el Wallmapu. Estos asentamientos trajeron consigo la imposición de la cultura occidental a través de sangre y fuego, exterminando a los habitantes autóctonos de la zona.

Desde los años 90 a la actualidad, la lucha del Pueblo Mapuche ha ido buscando diversas formas de combatir al Estado y el capitalismo. La miseria, el hambre, la injusticia y la desigualdad económica en las zonas al sur de Chile han hecho notar que el enemigo no es solo el Estado/nación, sino que también es el sistema capitalista en el cual habitamos. Son justamente, estos puntos los que iremos desarrollando a lo largo de este texto, con el fin de responder a nuestra inquietud: ¿Cómo anarquistas apoyamos la lucha del Pueblo Mapuche?

Este texto -- o capítulo XII do livro "História do Movimento Makhnovista", de Piotr Arshinov -- foi escrito no início dos anos 1920 e reflete sobre as relações entre a makhnovitchina e o anarquismo. Ele estabelece, a partir de uma avaliação autocrítica, os primeiros elementos das posições que serão mais bem delineadas na Plataforma, de 1926, escrita pelos militantes russos exilados na França que se articulavam em torno da revista "Dielo Truda".
