El objetivo del análisis que se desarrollará a continuación es el de proveer una aproximación a algunos procesos centrales de la historia reciente tanto mundial, regional como local. Entendemos que como militantes anarquistas debemos tener claro cuál es el contexto en el que vivimos para poder intervenir en las luchas sociales en sintonía con el mismo y potenciar así nuestras prácticas.

Será pertinente entonces aclarar que todo el desarrollo analítico siguiente es elaborado en función de la militancia y que como tal no pretende ser un análisis acabado ni un punto de llegada, sino que entendemos que se nutrirá de críticas y aportes que otros compañeros y compañeras puedan hacer. En consonancia con esto, cabe aclarar que este análisis no es únicamente un esfuerzo teórico si no que parte de la necesidad de comprender tanto las estrategias de los sectores dominantes como los diferentes procesos de resistencia que los de abajo venimos llevando adelante, todo esto desde una perspectiva anarquista.

Vale aclarar, además, que el presente análisis fue elaborado entre los meses de Marzo y Abril de 2015 a instancias del I Congreso de la Federación Anarquista de Rosario (ex Columna Libertaria Joaquín Penina), en donde dicho trabajo sirvió como insumo fundamental a la hora de interpretar los principales acontecimientos de la historia reciente.

It is now 70 years since the end of the Second World War (1939—1945). It is often referred to as the “Good War” or even the “Last Good War.” The U.S. soldiers who fought it have been called the “Greatest Generation.” Since wars are best seen as evils unless proven otherwise, it is worth asking why World War II has such a good reputation, and whether it deserves it. After all, approximately 60 million people died around the world from that war.

The aftereffects of the Second World War are still being felt. While very popular, it was an inter-imperialist war, a struggle for world domination. But it also included popular struggles against fascism, for national independence, democratic rights, and the possibility of socialist revolution. At their best, anarchists and other revolutionary socialists looked for ways to be part of this working class and people’s war.” Analyzing the war, and thinking through its issues, may help to prepare revolutionary anarchists for future upheavals.

In September 2012, shortly after the end of the largest unlimited general student strike in the history of Quebec, several class-struggle anarchist organisations in Canada along with a few local chapters of the IWW put together a cross-country tour to bring the history and experiences of the Quebec student movement to students and activists outside the province. Stopping in over a dozen cities from Toronto, Ontario to Victoria, BC, the tour brought a participant in the 2012 student strike to audiences in colleges and universities as well as union halls and various cooperatives. The article that follows is based on this conference. Special thanks to Jonathan from Zabalaza for editing help!

Pinochet and Wojtłya

In June 2009, one of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s most renowned accusers, Judge Juan Salvador Guzmán Tapia, visited South Africa on a speaking tour. Dean of the Law School at the Universidad Central de Chile in Santiago, and also a lecturer in human rights at the School of Journalism at the Universidad de la República, Guzmán was originally a Pinochet supporter, but turned against him after being selected by judicial lottery in 1998 to hear the 186 criminal charges against the man who, until his death in 2006, cast such long shadows over Chilean political life.

For those Chileans who took to the streets of their poblaciones in the early 1970s and mid-1980s to demand the release from Robben Island of Nelson Mandela and for an end to the apartheid regime in South Africa, the rightward shift of the African National Congress (ANC) with its embrace of anti-working-class neoliberalism is likely to be confusing. How did the world’s most celebrated new democracy come to be marred by ongoing violent protests by the poor against “their” government, faced down by police as bloody-minded as before, by continued housing evictions and mass forced removals so evocative of the depths of apartheid (1)? This analysis shall attempt to explain the trajectory of South African “democracy” and the failure of the “South African Revolution” by comparison to the Chilean experience of the popular overwhelming of Pinochetist reaction – in which the Left found itself fundamentally defeated, even as it attained its cherished victory.

Emiliano Zapata e Ricardo Flores Magón

Ao contrário das tentativas de mudança que se dão por dentro do Estado, há aquelas alternativas que se dão fora do âmbito do Estado. É inevitável falarmos em disputa de poder, mas entendendo poder como espaço político, e não como o poder do Estado e como a dominação. Poder não necessariamente implica em dominação. Por isso, é claro que os movimentos sociais, apesar de se constituírem, geralmente, fora do Estado, disputam espaço político com o Estado e os representantes da democracia representativa. Os movimentos que têm ou tiveram na História o objetivo de proporcionar uma mudança do status-quo, e dar a ele um sentido mais libertário, certamente disputavam espaço político com a reação e com o Estado. Na grande maioria das vezes, reivindicavam algo, de maneira organizada, o que lhes fazia constituir um movimento.

A América Latina tem uma grande tradição de movimentos sociais e, para essa discussão, acredito ser relevante recorrer a duas delas, ambas do México no contexto da Revolução Mexicana do início do século XX, e que continuam a ter protagonismo na América Latina até os nossos dias: o magonismo e o zapatismo.

The October Revolution in Russia was a momentous event and the Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group celebrates its centenary. The Soviets and the Factory Committees were great achievements of the working class and taking power was an even greater achievement. We are angered by the betrayal of the Revolution by Lenin and its total perversion by Stalin, but we are not disillusioned. Rather, we have learned lessons and work in the confident expectation that, if capitalism doesn’t destroy us in the meantime, there will be another revolution, and it will be worldwide. Unlike last time, workers won’t get taken in by the siren song of leaders who tell us fairy tales about a workers’ state. We won’t be fooled again.

Dicen que la historia la escriben los vencedores, aun así, eso no tiene demasiada importancia porque en tiempos de sobreabundancia de datos y cuando existen universidades para todo tipo de corrientes de pensamiento, sean conservadoras o revolucionarias, en una época en la que hay gurús de todas las escuelas apadrinados por la academia y cualquier espacio de reflexión crítico es asimilado, becado y promocionado por el sistema, el mercado oferta relatos históricos a la medida ideológica del consumidor, para que éste no desbarate una parte de su identidad predeterminada y pueda seguir con su vida normal, de producción y consumo.

Let us learn from our past struggles, in the USA and in Malaysia. May Day should be an occasion to reflect not jubilate, to engage not agonize, to demand not relent, and to organise, not complain. We need systemic change that can guarantee equality, fraternity, self-management and socialisation of the commonwealth, guided by a bottom–up approach to decision making. We need a labour movement that is multicultural and international, feminist, active in urban and rural struggles, and that prizes reason over superstition, justice over hierarchy, self-management over state power, international solidarity over nationalism. We need to fight for a universal human community, not parochialism and separatism. The organisational power and strategic location of the Malaysian union movement provides an excellent point of departure for building this counter-movement. This is our appeal and message as we celebrate this May Day, on the eve of dark days in which the storm clouds gather over humanity – but in which the light of hope of a better future can break through, if we arm ourselves with the correct ideas and approaches. May Day began as an example of globalisation-from-below. Let us rally to it. Let us take back its original vision: liberty, equality, unity.

Στα αποσπάσματα αυτά από το βιβλίο της Ida Mett “Οι Ρώσοι Χωρικοί στην Επανάσταση”, η συγγραφέας παρέχει κάποια ιστορικά στοιχεία σε ό,τι αφορά τη ρωσική αγροτιά, κατά την παραμονή και την αρχή της Ρωσικής Επανάστασης του 1917. Υπήρξε μια έκρηξη του αγροτικού συνεταιριστικού κινήματος καθώς μεγάλο μέρος των Ρώσων αγροτών εγκατέλειψε τον στρατό, γυρίζοντας την πλάτη στον πόλεμο της Ρωσίας κατά της Γερμανίας και επέστρεψε στο σπίτι του. Το πολιτικό κόμμα που απολάμβανε τη μεγαλύτερη υποστήριξη εκ μέρους των αγροτών και χωρικών ήταν το Σοσιαλιστικό Επαναστατικό Κόμμα (SRS - ή αριστεροί εσέροι), αλλά ήταν διαιρεμένο σε δεξιές και αριστερές φράξιες και σύντομα άφησε την επαναστατική πρωτοβουλία να περάσει στα χέρια των μπολσεβίκων, οι οποίοι από το 1921 άρχισαν να καταστέλλουν αποτελεσματικά όλες τις άλλες επαναστατικές ομάδες, συμπεριλαμβανομένων και των αναρχικών.

El 3 de Agosto de 1916, en la prisión de Pentonville, Londres, el revolucionario y humanista, nacionalista e internacionalista, irlandés Roger Casement era ahorcado por cargos de traición a la Corona británica. Su muerte fue la última de las ejecuciones de los líderes del republicanismo irlandés acusados de haber participado en la insurrección irlandesa de ese año. Cien años después, su ejemplo de vida sigue siendo una inspiración para quienes practican la solidaridad internacionalista en todo el mundo y para quienes buscan alterar las estructuras del poder en un mundo en el cual se ha convertido a la fuerza bruta en la nueva racionalidad de la época.

textRemembering the 1916 rebellion in Ireland together Apr 20 22:31 by Andrew 3 comments

Almost a century ago, an armed insurrection took place in Ireland to end British rule and to establish an independent Irish Republic. The 1916 Rising was soon accompanied by major popular revolts against World War One across Europe and later emulated by anti-colonial movements across the Global South. When it comes to remembering the 1916 Rising, why do conservative politicians and historians want to convince us that it would have been better for us if Pearse and Connolly had stayed at home? Why did the state parade lots of military equipment and personnel down O’Connell Street to mark the centenary? Why did so many people turn out to watch it? This panel attempts to think through the meaning of 1916 for us today, and the politics at stake in how these events are remembered, forgotten, and mis-remembered.

Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana image"Seek Ye First the Political Kingdom"? Learning from Kwame Nkrumah's Failures in Ghana Apr 04 22:10 by Tokologo African Anarchist Collective 1 comments

Ghana, West Africa, was a British colony called "Gold Coast" until 1957. It became the first independent country in "black" Africa after reforms and struggles in the 1940s and 1950s. The new president, the brilliant Kwame Nkrumah, and his Convention People's Party (CPP), had fought for independence. Now they aimed at major changes in the society, even speaking of socialism. And Nkrumah proposed a united African government for the continent: Pan-Africanism.

But by the mid-1960s, hopes were fading. There were good reforms in education and services and self- respect for Africans that helped remove colonialism's damages. But the CPP has become a dictatorship, with a personality cult around Nkrumah. Unions and struggles were suppressed. The economy was in trouble. A new elite hijacked independence and resources. When the military seized power in 1966, people celebrated in the streets. Today Ghana is one of the poorest African countries.

What went wrong and what can we, anarchists in Africa, learn from this experience?

This is by an author who summerized the " 60's civil war in the U.S." in a few short paragraphs.
I add in a long intro slamming the media etc. for reducing the 60's to ONLY the civil rights movement (leaving out the more radical/revolutionary currants like the Black Panthers), and the peace movement (leaving out the equally massive important- to way generalize a complicated mixed scene- anti-war/anti-imperialist movement.
I mention anarchistic tides such as the all over the map student movement that burned down buildings to fight en loco parentis- in the place of parents- fight for personal freedom and to be treated like adults- the effect of which, though modified, can be scene on today's campus's. I mention the hippies/freaks who were everywhere and anarchist if not conciously than in effect.
I go into womens/gay etc movements. The incredible revolution in creative music called "the soundtrack for the revolution" that was picked up in the underground of the Soviet Bloc whose lyrics could'nt be understood but meant "freedom". I mention BIG TIME that guys could be incredibly liberated to grow their hair long...
I give alot of play to the formation of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War which was the only group of vets in U.S. history to oppose a war still in effect that had plenty of effect as U'll see... much more...
Then finally i quote the text mentioned at the beginning by another author.

Although commended by no less a luminary than Sir Ian Kershaw on the dust-jacket, Richard J. Evans' name is not one that stands in the first ranks of historians of Nazism and the ultimately (self)destructive spiral of accelerating radicalism that led to the Holocaust. To be fair, it is tough to distinguish oneself in this field because the rise of such an implacable evil in the heart of what in many respects was the most "civilised" of Western countries poses the greatest riddle of the 20th Century – and has thus been exhaustively treated by more works than any other single historical topic.
