southern africa / history Monday June 17, 2013 - 23:59 by Zabalaza   image 1 image
This year [2006] marks the 30th anniversary of the 1976 Soweto uprising in South Africa, which marked the start of the fall of apartheid, and inspired activists worldwide. African working youth played a leading role, and their sacrifices showed us that ordinary people can make a difference to the injustices of our world. Revolutionaries should commemorate this struggle, but also learn from its failings.

VM 2010 må afsløres som det fuldkomne humbug, det er. Den sydafrikanske anarkistføderation Zabalaza fordømmer kraftigt den sydafrikanske regerings frækhed og hykleri, når de præsenterer verdensmesterskabet som en enestående mulighed for løfte det sydafrikanske folk og resten af kontinentet, økonomisk og socialt.

Det er helt klart, at ”muligheden” er og bliver en mulighed for nye indtjeninger til den globale og hjemlige kapital og den sydafrikanske herskerklasse. Faktisk er der, om noget, større sandsynlighed for, at mesterskaberne har skadelige konsekvenser for Sydafrikas fattige og for arbejderklassen – hvilket vi allerede har set eksempler på.

Even with all eyes on the World Cup, movements of the workers and the poor in South Africa must not forget that another challenge looms: the local government elections of 2011. And with the approach of elections, we are already seeing the return of the wave of authoritarians and opportunists of the left, all singing the same old song: if they are elected, they will somehow be able to do something about the problems of the workers and the poor. And while they may remix the song over and over, the tune remains the same: individual leaders, experts, or vanguards can find the answer; the mass movements of the people cannot liberate themselves. ... read full story / add a comment

On Thursday 12 February 2009 members of the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front participated in a protest-march held in Johannesburg as part of the Coalition Against Water Privatisation's Women and Water Campaign. The protest went from Library Gardens in central Johannesburg, a historic meeting point for protests in the city, to Mayor Amos Masondo's office in Braamfontein, near Constitution Hill. The march was to demand that Masondo withdraw his appeal of the pro-poor Johannesburg High Court ruling of Judge Tsoka, which ruled that the forced installation of pre-paid water meters and the prepayment water system is unlawful and unconstitutional, and that City of Johannesburg and Johannesburg Water provide residents of poor townships with 50 litres of free water per person per day. ... read full story / add a comment

The state is the instrument by which minority classes use to maintain their power and privileges. It can never be used to destroy them. What is surprising is that Marxists seem to forget this, urging us to vote for radicals at election time and get outraged when they defend the interests of the few rather than the many. ... read full story / add a comment
southern africa / anarchist movement Wednesday June 29, 2005 - 22:37 by Zabalaza
Usually masked - to prevent identification and as protection against the teargas used by the repressive forces - and dressed distinctively in the traditional anarchist colour of black, the so-called "black bloc" has provided anarchism with its greatest public profile since the mass protest movements of the late 1960s. But this is a class war and we need to be flexible in our tactics and change swiftly where needed in order to keep the enemy off balance. For now, it is time to drop the black bloc tactic, go unmasked in daylight, and blend in with the workers. Since they are prepared for the black bloc, we need new approaches that will catch them off-guard. ... read full story / add a comment

Ten years into our new bourgeois democracy and the ANC released a triumphalist analysis of its achievements entitled “Towards a 10-year Review”. But one has to go further back and look at the continental soil within which the roots of the “miracle” transition from racial class rule to deracialised class rule grew. Our analysis here is mainly extracted from an interview with the ZACF published by the 36-year-old British anarchist journal Black Flag. ... read full story / add a comment

Recent debates in the press around the issue of "Black Economic Empowerment," or BEE, bring key features of the post-apartheid dispensation into stark relief. They also show the limits of much of what is considered to be "progressive" or left-wing politics in South Africa. BEE is about creating an elite of Black capitalists, something that underlines the class agenda of the ANC. ... read full story / add a comment

I 50 giorni di guerra su Gaza sono finiti dopo che Israele ha implorato un cessate-il-fuoco ed aperto ad ulteriori richieste da parte di Hamas (di cui alcune tenute segrete persino agli stessi ministri israeliani). Una maggioranza di israeliani è disposta ad ammettere che Israele non ha vinto la guerra ma riconoscono con difficoltà che Hamas ha avuto la mano migliore. I ministri hanno approvato due settimane fa un documento del governo contenente una proposta di dispiegamento di una forza internazionale a Gaza, che può significare la fine dell'occupazione israeliana della Striscia di Gaza e l'apertura del ghetto... e può essere un precedente che potrebbe essere la fine dell'occupazione della Cisgiordania.

The 50-day war on Gaza ended, after Israel begged for a ceasefire and yielded to major demands from Hamas (some kept in secret even from Israeli government ministers). A majority of Israelis admit that Israel did not win the war but with difficulty admit that Hamas had the upper hand. Ministers passed two weeks ago a classified Cabinet document containing a proposal to place an international force in Gaza, which may mean the end of Israel's occupation of the Gaza Strip and the opening of the Ghetto... and may be a precedent to what could be the end of the occupation of the West Bank). In Israel, the "radical" left is back to "normal"... though many more activists are contemplating joining the comrades who had already lost hope and emigrated. It seems the international pressures of the imperial powers and the advances of the boycott movement are bringing the end of the 1967 occupation sooner than expected. [Italiano]

imageEEUU en el Medio Oriente: hipocresía y doble discurso Sep 15 by BrunoL 0 comments

Bruno Lima Rocha*

El Oriente Medio es un ajedrez motivado por el peor realismo, mezclado con intereses geoestratégicos. Veamos por qué, a través de la doble posición de los Estados Unidos, Israel entró en una guerra “preventiva” contra Hamás, organización político-militar de fundamentación religiosa y que comparte el gobierno de la Franja de Gaza desde 2006. El saldo del conflicto fueron cerca de 52 israelíes muertos y más de 2000 palestinos eliminados físicamente. La infraestructura de Gaza fue destruida con la aplicación de la estrategia de “tierra arrasada”. Esta forma de combate viene de la política de Reagan y sus aliados centro americanos contra las guerrillas de El Salvador y Guatemala en los años 80. La postura de los Estados Unidos –ardoroso y autoproclamado defensor de los derechos humanos– fue tímida delante de la supremacía bélica y tecnológica del Estado de Israel. El país fundado por pioneros sionistas como Ben Gurión es el único del planeta con poder de veto dentro de Washington. Es por eso que la política de los EEUU para Medio Oriente tiene literalmente, dos pesos y dos medidas.

In the first half of 2014, the struggles of diverse categories of workers were taken to the streets to the dismay of bosses and governors. The powerful’s counterattack was supported with the help of the mainstream media, which tried to criminalise the protests and demobilise the strugglers. This happened before, during and after the World Cup – a time in which the news sought to legitimise the violent actions of the repressive apparatus of the state and its leaders. Following this came the political persecutions and arrests of dozens of protestors in an authoritarian manner, violating democratic means and human rights.

image[Chile] La misteriosa explosión que cambió el panorama nacional Sep 14 by Espartaco Gatti 0 comments

Sin duda alguna, la detonación del artefacto explosivo producida en el “Subcentro” de la estación de metro Escuela Militar, ocurrida el lunes 8 de septiembre recién pasado, es un episodio que generó un giro radical en la realidad nacional, y que probablemente marque un punto de no retorno, en lo que a materia jurídica se refiere. La explosión producida a las 14:05 horas, hirió a 14 personas, las cuales sufrieron traumas acústicos, fracturas, heridas por esquirlas, y la más grave de ellas, una trabajadora de la limpieza, amputación de dedos. El pánico fue general, debido a que la explosión se registró durante el horario de colación, en un lugar en donde confluye y circula muchísima gente. Inmediatamente la noticia tuvo amplia cobertura a nivel internacional y la prensa más sensacionalista y adicta al sistema de dominación, no dudó en afirmar que el “terrorismo estaba de vuelta”.

In this article, Troaditis examines the transitional period between the appearance of the general socialist organisation Socialist Brotherhood and the forming of some clearly anarchist groupings. It’s a period that there is nothing remained from Democratic Association of the People (of 1870s Patras) as some of their members have either become moderate socialists or simply have disappeared, and a new and fresh wave of anarchists is starting to be visible in town. This moment is just a step before of the formation of the anarchist communist newspaper-collective “Epi Ta Proso” (“Forward”) in 1896.
