There has been an increase in anti-Jewish actions in the U.S. Why is this? Why have Jews been focused on by fascists and haters? There are traditional reasons for anti-semitism. The establishment of the state of Israel has created an interaction between anti-semitism and anti-Zionism. Where anti-semitism is irrational and reactionary, anti-Zionism is a just response to the oppression of Palestinian Arabs and Israel's alliance with U.S. imperialism. ... read full story / add a comment

Albert Parsons in the 1870s
north america / mexico / history of anarchism Wednesday May 01, 2019 - 21:38 por Albert Parsons   image 2 images
As a tribute to one of the most remarkable agitators in labour history, we publish on May Day the autobiography of Albert Parsons. He was one of the five Chicago Anarchists who were tried in 1886-1887 and executed in November 1887 for their role as 8-hour working-day agitators and as anarchist militants. This mock-trial in 'the land of liberty' is one of the most shameful events in the history of labour in the whole world, and gave rise to May Day commemorations all over the world -the day was picked, because the repression which ended up in the 'legal lynching' of the Chicago Martyrs started after the general strike for the 8 hours working-day in May 1st 1886. This day is commemorated all over the world in memory of the Chicago Martyrs -unsurprisingly, one of the few countries which does not commemorate May Day is the land where this barbaric crime took place -the United States. They invented their own 'Labour Day' in September, with the purpose of severing the working class in the US from its radical tradition, and to devoid of meaning the conquest of the 8 hour working-day, a product of struggle and enormous sacrifice, not a gift from the capitalists. The life of Albert Parsons is instructive of the trajectory of many working class agitators in the US in the 19th century, a period of remarkable radicalism which was crushed with unspeakable ruthlessness and repression. His life story goes from fighting in the Confederate States Army during the US Civil War as a 13 year old, to republican and civil rights' agitator, advocate of the emancipation of the slaves, then trade unionist, socialist and anarchist. He was married to Lucy Parsons, a mixed race woman herself born a slave, who would become a prominent socialist and anarchist, and who was a founding member of the Industrial Workers of the World, IWW, in 1905. A remarkable organiser and orator, he was the soul of the most progressive and active workers' movement in the USA at the time: in Chicago. Parsons was the only US citizen of 'pure stock' among the Chicago Martyrs (his ancestry going back all the way to one of the pilgrims in the Mayflower in 1632) -all his comrades being German. The immigrant nature of these anarchists was the cause for a racist and xenophobic uproar that no doubt was crucial to justify their barbaric execution -these racist, xenophobic tendencies are still alive and healthy in the USA, as we can see from the current state of affairs in the country. This is why, being not only a remarkable speaker, but also a well-self-educated man (at a time when the workers' movement still placed much emphasis on the self-education of the workers), he chose to strike a chord with public opinion and counter arguments that socialism and anarchism were 'foreign' and 'alien' ideas, by appealing to texts such as the US Declaration of Independence and opinions of Thomas Jefferson, while also appealing to the conservative and religious frame of mind prevalent, ended up by quoting the Bible. Of course, nothing would save him from the fury of the capitalists' class hatred, but this autobiography is a masterpiece of engaging with the prevalent environment at the time from a radical perspective, of showing in a sober manner his process of radicalisation and the logic behind it, and also, a staunch defence of the anarchist principles by which he lived and which he did not betrayed when confronted to the gallows. Our best tribute to this titanic figure is to resist the current onslaught of the global capitalists against hard-won workers' rights, while to keep faithful to the cause of a free and just world. José Antonio Gutiérrez D.

Οι Αναρχικοί ηγέτες του οκταώρου κινήματος κρεμάστηκαν την Παρασκευή 11 Νοεμβρίου. Εκείνη τη μέρα οι πλούσιοι του Σικάγου είχαν ρίγη και πυρετό. Το σχοινί τεντώνεται προς όλες τις κατευθύνσεις από τη φυλακή. Αστυνομικοί άνδρες σταθμεύουν κατά μήκος των σχοινιών οπλισμένοι με τουφέκια. Ειδικές περιπολίες παρακολουθούσαν όλες τις προσεγγίσεις στη φυλακή. Οι στέγες γύρω από το βαρύ πέτρινο κτίριο ήταν γεμάτε με αστυνομικούς. Οι εφημερίδες έγειραν τη δημόσια φαντασία με ιστορίες εξεγέρσεων στις φυλακές. ... read full story / add a comment

The purpose of this pamphlet is giving a coherent, comparative analysis on how anarchists and Marxists view the concept of “class,” and the political implications of each approach. Class is the nucleus of both Marxism and anarchism; however the conceptualisation of class is different for both. In pointing out these differences, it is my hope that I will convincingly show how and why the anarchist conceptualisation of class is more comprehensive and more useful, providing a more holistic analysis of many related aspects of class, and a more practical political guide. In particular, the anarchist approach – which stresses ownership and control of administration and coercion, not only means of production, as with Marxism – allows us to develop an effective analysis of why the state simply cannot be used to emancipate the popular classes i.e. the working class, the poor and the peasantry. ... read full story / add a comment

Παρ' όλα αυτά οι μικρο-αντιστάσεις σε αυτό το καθεστώς δεν λείπουν και πρέπει να ενδυναμώνονται κατά την άποψη μου. Το βιβλίο τελειώνει με την παρουσίαση μιας τέτοιας περίπτωσης μικρο-αντίστασης. Οι συγγραφείς του αφιερώνουν το βιβλίο σε αυτόν που αντιστάθηκε και όλους σαν αυτόν. Με τον ίδιο τρόπο θα κλείσω το κείμενο αυτό. Διότι αν υπάρχει ένα «φυσικό» δικαίωμα, είναι το δικαίωμα στην αντίσταση, αυτό που μας κάνει ελεύθερους. ... read full story / add a comment

In the 1980s I participated in a "dialogue" about anarchism and Marxism. Re-reading my writing now, when I am a revolutionary anarchist, I think that much of what I wrote then was wrong--with one exception. I went over certain key issues, such as the strengths and weaknesses of Marxism, the state, the revolutionary party, election participation, and national liberation--topics which are still important for anarchists and other radicals to consider and debate. ... read full story / add a comment

La impunidad asquea, repugna e indigna aún más que estos genocidas anden sueltos, caminando por las calles con total tranquilidad. Pero el pueblo sabe que esto no es casualidad. Solo han sido encarcelados unos pocos militares y policías, los más notorios, protegidos en una cárcel vip; pero son 400 o más los que andan tranquilos, impunes. Pero junto a ellos están todos los civiles, la estructura de poder que los empujó y respaldó: dueños de diarios y radios, cámaras de comercio y rurales, grandes empresas extranjeras, dispositivos del imperio que operaban en el área. Todos ellos son responsables, el repudio eterno a toda esta estructura del horror que asesinó a hijos e hijas de nuestro pueblo. ... read full story / add a comment

Υπάρχει μόνο ένας τρόπος να καταπολεμήσουμε αποτελεσματικά τον φασισμό, επειδή η μόνη δύναμη που μπορεί να νικήσει τον φασισμό είναι η οργανωμένη εργατική τάξη. Χρειαζόμαστε ένα ενωμένο μέτωπο όπου όλοι οι στόχοι των φασιστών συναντιούνται στον αγώνα. Σε αυτό το ενιαίο μέτωπο χωρούν βέβαεια διαφορετικές πολιτικές προοπτικές και ποικίλες τακτικές, αλλά αν μπορούμε να συμφωνήσουμε για την ανάγκη να δράσουμε μαζί ενάντια στον κοινό εχθρό, αυτό μπορεί να αποβεί αποτελεσματική. Κατά τη διάρκεια του αγώνα, η εγκυρότητα των Αναρχικών Κομμουνιστικών αρχών και οργανωτικών προσεγγίσεων θα αποδειχθεί σε ολοένα αυξανόμενο αριθμό εργαζομένων. ... read full story / add a comment

There is only one way to fight Fascism effectively, because the only force that can beat Fascism is the organised working class. We need a united front where all the Fascists’ targets come together in struggle. This united front necessarily has room for different political perspectives and a diversity of tactics, but as long as we can agree on the need to act together against the common enemy, it can be effective. In the course of the struggle, the validity of Anarchist Communist principles and organisational approaches will be proven to increasing numbers of workers. ... read full story / add a comment

Ωστόσο, πρέπει να θυμόμαστε ανά πάσα στιγμή ότι ο ρατσισμός δεν μπορεί να καταπολεμηθεί μόνο από τον αντιρατσισμό. Η καταπολέμηση του καπιταλισμού και ο αγώνας κατά του ρατσισμού είναι δύο όψεις του ίδιου νομίσματος. Ούτε μπορεί να πετύχει χωρίς το άλλο. Η δεξιά είναι καλή στο να παρουσιάζει ένα όραμα μιας εναλλακτικής λύσης απέναντι στους δυσαρεστημένους. Πρέπει να κάνουμε το ίδιο και πρέπει να το κάνουμε καλύτερα, αφού το όραμά μας για ένα ολόπλευρο, ισότιμο μέλλον είναι πιο ικανοποιητικό. ... read full story / add a comment

No dia 20 de fevereiro de 2019, após meses de especulação do mercado financeiro, chantagem dos grandes empresários e publicidade pesada da mídia corporativista, o governo Bolsonaro entregou na Câmara dos Deputados a tão cobiçada Reforma da Previdência. Finalmente a classe trabalhadora brasileira conheceu qual será o tamanho do ataque que vem pela frente através da caneta dos de cima. Como já era previsível, o projeto de Paulo Guedes é ainda mais duro do que o apresentado por Temer. Essa reforma significa mais retirada de direitos de trabalhadoras e trabalhadores. ... read full story / add a comment
