Three decades ago, with the end of the Cold War and the dismantling of the South American dictatorships, many hoped that the much talked about ‘peace dividend’ promised by Bush senior and Thatcher would actually materialise. No such luck. Instead, we have experienced continuous wars, upheavals, intolerance and fundamentalisms of every sort – religious, ethnic and imperial. The exposure of the Western world’s surveillance networks has heightened the feeling that democratic institutions aren’t functioning as they should, that, like it or not, we are living in the twilight period of democracy itself. ... read full story / add a comment

A press report in 1983 that a popular uprising in Upper Volta, a small and poor land-locked country in Western Africa had led to an obscure, but charismatic army officer becoming head of state was truly inspiring news for all those looking for some kind of breakthrough against imperialism in that part of the world. It had come after the depressing news that Margaret Thatcher's Britain had defeated Argentina in the Malvinas and Ronald Reagan's America had crushed Grenada, a clear message to the world that, on a moment's notice, imperialism would brutally crush anything that threatened its power. But because the American empire had been taken by surprise by the Cuban revolution twenty-four years earlier, many of us were then hopeful that maybe we were witnessing such a possibility again, in Africa. ... read full story / add a comment

Los atentados y ataques en París han causado conmoción, por lo inesperado, por su brutalidad y por el número de víctimas. En los noticiarios han copado el contenido y han causado una gran reacción. La primera la veíamos ayer, muy interesante, por tratarse el periódico atacado Charlie Hebdo de una publicación satírica, con cientos de ilustraciones de distintos ilustradores de todo el mundo, condenando el ataque (ver interesante artículo a este respecto: “Yo NO soy Charlie” de José Antonio Gutiérrez Danton). Hoy en París con esa manifestación multitudinaria. Y mañana al parecer con otra a la que van a acudir incluso dignatarios de distintos países, incluido Rajoy. Obviamente la situación es trágica pero la reacción me hace cuestionar lo que pasa y como se utilizará. ... read full story / add a comment

Francia está convulsionada, surcada por la confusión e invadida por los miedos (que casi siempre desembocan en comportamientos xenófobos), porque esta vez la guerra que tanto provocaron y alentaron sus gobernantes ya no alcanza para verla solamente en los televisores. Ahora las balas de un lado y del otro resuenan en las calles de París y sus alrededores, y como no podía ser de otra manera hay muertos. Algunos, como los colaboradores del periódico "Charlie Hebdo", masacrados en su lugar de trabajo. Otros, fusilados por la policía francesa, que en su afán de "encontrar culpables", militariza con más de 80 mil efectivos la capital y sus pueblos adyacentes. Esta es la foto que muestra al mundo, en este particular principio de año, un país que a diferencia de los Estados Unidos, siempre se las ha arreglado para disimular su afición a la violencia, y dentro de ella, las "hazañas" de años de terrorismo estatal.

It was Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight who tipped me over the edge.

To be fair, he wasn’t wholly responsible. If it wasn’t for all the lunacy that preceded him, I probably would have dismissed his cartoon as just another Herald Sun atrocity, more a piece of Murdoch-madness to be mocked rather than trigger for outrage. But context is everything. And after days of sanctimonious blather about freedom of speech and the Enlightenment values of Western civilisation, his was one pencil-warfare cartoon too many. ... read full story / add a comment

Nella spirale caotica che avvolge il Medio Oriente dai tempi dell'invasione dell'Iraq, potenze locali e globali hanno dovuto ricorrere ad una serie di organismi, come l'ISIS, per sostenere le proprie richieste. Tutti sanno che all'interno degli attuali confini la situazione non è più sostenibile, ma nessuno è in grado offrire delle opzioni alternative. E' all'interno di questo schema che le potenze regionali e quelle globali avevano bisogno dell'ISIS come una sorta di balsamo per chiudere le fratture nella situazione attuale ed anche come grilletto per spingere verso la formazione di nuovi confini e nuovi stati, ed ancor di più come opportunistico strumento per gestire la crisi nella regione.

La historia contemporánea de Colombia nos muestra una presencia constante de la violencia y la guerra permeando las relaciones políticas e influyendo en la dinámica económica y social del país. Durante casi dos siglos, la lucha por el poder político se hizo por la vía de la violencia armada: el oponente era, ante todo, un enemigo al que derrotar y, de ser posible, destruir y desaparecer físicamente. El momento actual es clave como posibilidad de romper con el hilo histórico de violencia que ha impuesto el modelo oligárquico como opción para la acción política. ... read full story / add a comment

Throughout the spiralling chaos in the Middle East which has started with the invasion of Iraq both local and global powers have required a number of bodies to serve their varying demands, such as ISIS. While it is acknowledged that the current situation under the present borders is redundant, no one has been able to name a new option. It is within this frame that local and global powers needed an ISIS as a balm to seal the cracks of the present condition and also as a trigger to help form new borders and states, and more importantly as an instrumental tool to manage the crisis in the region.

Instead of glorifying the military prowess of the Anzacs, we should be building the working class movement which can sweep away all capitalist States. We need a revolution that will establish libertarian communism, a world of liberty, equality and solidarity, where war and militarism exist no more, except as exhibits in museums and lessons from history.

Oggi, le bande criminali che gli Stati avevano creato per i loro interessi si stanno ritirando da Kobanê lasciandosi alle spalle le rovine che hanno provocato. Mentre l'eco della vittoria della resistenza sale per le vie di Kobanê, si rafforza la convinzione della libertà al di sopra delle stesse rovine. Come ebbe a dire il compagno Durruti:"Non abbiamo paura delle rovine". Oggi e domani, a Kobanê ed in molti altri posti, sappiamo che una nuova vita nascerà tra quelle stesse rovine. [English]

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. [Italiano]

Depuis quelques années, le mouvement kurde se rapproche des idées libertaires. Même s'il ne s'agit pas d'un mouvement anarchiste, ce changement montre que les idées anarchistes de liberté et d'égalité par la solidarité, nos idées d'horizontalité et de démocratie directe radicale contre l'etat sont valides et fortes, mais également nécessaires pour en finir avec l'héritage autoritaire de la gauche dans les mouvements sociaux. Exprimer notre solidarité avec rojava et le mouvement kurde est de notre responsabilité, parce qu'ils représentent l'espoir dans cette région et parce qu'il s'agit d'une lutte des opprimé-e-s contre les oppresseurs. Les vraies luttes ne sont jamais parfaites mais elles amènent à différentes potentialités de construction d'une société libre. Tout en exprimant notre solidarité avec le mouvement révolutionnaire au rojava, nous comprenons aussi que notre rôle est de continuer à développer les principes centraux de nos idées pour les partager avec les révolutionnaires du monde entier. - Groupe éditorial anarkismo.net [español] [English]

20 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

A cidade de Mahabad é conhecida como a capital do Curdistão iraniano, e hoje opera como o epicentro da rebelião popular dos curdos contra a autoridade xiita de Teerã. O Curdistão Leste (Rojhelat) viveu um momento de rebelião após o dia 7 de maio quando uma jovem curda se atirou do 4º andar de um hotel cinco estrelas onde trabalhava como camareira. O motivo do suicídio de Farinaz Xorowanî foi um ato de rebeldia contra agentes da inteligência iraniana (Itlaat) que, ao alegar querer interroga-la tentaram forçar um estupro. O sacrifício da trabalhadora resultou em rebelião franca e aberta, com as tropas anti-distúrbios da província e forças regulares da Guarda Revolucionária do Irã (Pasdaran) usando munição letal no meio da rua. Tal episódio, ao contrário de ser uma raridade, é a norma de convivência entre o regime dos Aiatolás e a esquerda curda. Nos dias posteriores, a polícia política dos aiatolás prendeu mais de 800 militantes sociais curdos, o que certamente irá aumentar a estatística regular de assassinados pelo Estado; cerca de cem ativistas por ano são enforcados pelas leis do fundamentalismo xiita.

Mientras el gobierno se niega tercamente a cualquier medida bilateral para desescalar el conflicto, la posición adoptada por los campesinos del Bajo Cuembí es un ejemplo a seguir. Este ejemplo demuestra que, más allá de seguir suplicando un cese al fuego bilateral a un gobierno autista, que no demuestra la menor preocupación por las mayorías empobrecidas del país pero que se desvela por satisfacer a la minoría de los súper-ricos, se pueden tomar acciones concretas, de carácter directo, para avanzar en la desmilitarización de los territorios.

Bruno Lima Rocha

1 May 2015

In this essay, I start to debate and contest the political theory produced to classify all parties, and in extension, all political organizations, inside an umbrella that models political participation inside indirect democracy in a liberal approach. Before going deeper into criticism, I will highlight some aspects. This article is not intended to enter the specific debate about the theories of political parties, but to contest the essential part of the hegemonic approach for political organizations definitions. We argued against the Marxist and Marxist-Leninist tradition in the two first essays. In this one and the next, we will argue against the theory produced to reinforce the powers that are political models in Western societies. Besides struggling against hegemonic definitions, I must recognize that political science has discussed this subject extensively, and that the object of analysis – the political party – is a unit of essential structural analysis for the area, and that there is a large (and boring) literature about it.

imageSouth Africa and the DRC: Has Rhodes passed on the baton? Apr 29 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

In the heat of the struggle for statues like that of Rhodes – the arch-symbol of British imperialism – to be pulled down, and in the midst of the horror of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, few people seemed to notice an announcement by Jacob Zuma that South African troops will remain at war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) for another year. Of course, Zuma made this announcement on behalf of the South African ruling class – comprised today of white capitalists and a black elite mainly centred around the state, Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) and ‘traditional’ royal families. In this there was a real irony that while Rhodes’s likeness was falling from its perch at the University of Cape Town, and immigrants from other parts of Africa and Asia were being attacked because of sentiments stoked up by a rehabilitated relic of apartheid (the Zulu king, Zwelithini), the South African ruling class felt brash enough to say they will be continuing their own imperialist war in the DRC.
