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.

Transfeminism developed out of a critique of the mainstream and radical feminist movements. The feminist movement has a history of internal hierarchies. There are many examples of women of color, working class women, lesbians and others speaking out against the tendency of the white, affluent- dominated women’s movement to silence them and overlook their needs. Instead of honoring these marginalized voices, the mainstream feminist movement has prioritized struggling for rights primarily in the interests of white affluent women.

While the feminist movement as a whole has not resolved these hierarchal tendencies, various groups have continued to speak up regarding their own marginalization – in particular, transgendered women. The process of developing a broader understanding of systems of oppression and how they interact has advanced feminism and is key to building on the theory of anarchist feminism.

Michael Dwyer posing with pistols in Bolivia

In any country with a half way critical media, the last few months would have been disastrous for Shell in Ireland. In a crucial period in Shell’s imposition of an experimental gas pipeline on the people of Erris it emerges that Michael Dwyer, one of the security guards on this project, was part of an attempt to trigger a civil war in Bolivia. Soon after that it became clear that at least three others who had worked as security guards at the Shell compound had travelled to Bolivia with Dwyer and were wanted there for questioning. Some, it emerged, had links to fascist organizations in Eastern Europe.

It is not enough to have the "truth"...

A revolutionary programme is, in a few words, a set of very precise and concrete proposals to advance towards profound social transformations. It is not revolutionary theory, but the application of this theory in order to comprehend and change a concrete society. It departs from an analysis of the current society, studies the current conditions of the terrain for the class struggle, identifies the most urgent problems and the conditions to develop a movement; studies potential allies and enemies; and proposes a series of changes, as well as a way to reach them by means of struggle.

An article which discusses the anarchist programme from a revolutionary anarchist perspective. In it, the author analyses the need to make a qualitative shift from an anarchism which is restricted to propaganda circles, to an anarchism with the possibility of social transformation, putting forward a few basic considerations for the necessity of the development of revolutionary programmes in order to facilitate this shift.

There are two main trends in anarchism, which agree on antistatism and anticapitalism and opposition to all oppression, but disagree on revolution, democracy, prefigurative politics, and class struggle.

It has been stated by various theorists that there are two main trends in modern anarchism. How they are conceptualized varies with the writer. I will state how I see the two broad tendencies in the anarchist movement, using the books Anarchy Alive! (Uri Gordon) and Black Flame (Micahel Schmidt & Lucien Van der Walt) to illustrate the two trends. I will describe them as differing on the issues of revolution or reformism, of democracy, of what “prefigurative politics” mean, and of attitudes toward the working class.

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.

Pontes e aproximações entre o anarquismo e o Confederalismo Democrático.

23 de abril de 2015 – Bruno Lima Rocha

Segue a introdução escrita por Pablo Misraji, responsável pela radução do segundo artigo de uma série sobre a questão da Revolução Social contemporânea de Rojava, no Curdistão. Neste ensaio, as distinções e proximidades teórico-práticas com outras experiências de autogestão econômica e política, são apresentadas e permitem que os projetos políticos de transformação social continuadamente catalisem a força social e se condicionem às metodologias da realidade.

Introdução para esta questão em particular

Nesta seção eu vou expor algumas informações históricas básicas sobre o modelo de organização política anarquista e, no final, fazer uma comparação entre essas experiências e na contemporaneidade, com a estratégia da organização política que pretende ser a catalisadora de uma transformação social pelo Confederalismo Democrático.

We are very pleased to be able to congratulate you on the realisation of your First Congress as a specific anarchist political organisation. In light of the disbanding of the Federación Anarco-Comunista Argentina we believe that this is a very important step both for our shared especifista tendency as well as for the development of anarchism in general, both in Argentina and the region.

In the night between April 18th and April 19th a boat filled with up to 950 migrants sank in the Mediterranean Sea, 70 miles north of Libya, while trying to reach the southern European border. This was not only the greatest tragedy to date involving migrants in the Mediterranean Sea, it is also the last of a long series of deaths: around 14,600 from 1993 to November, 2012; 900 in little more than a year from January, 2014 to April, 2015, before this latest tragedy.

textThe New World Disorder Apr 21 14:46 by Tariq Ali 0 comments

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.

En las últimas dos semanas de marzo comandos de infantería del ejército turco (el segundo mayor contingente militar de los países miembros de la OTAN) atacaron bases guerrilleras de las fuerzas del Partido de los Trabajadores del Kurdistán (PKK), rompiendo una tregua unilateral bastante duradera iniciada por la izquierda kurda. Los medios masivos internacionales ignoraron solemnemente el hecho, cuidando de no afectar la imagen de Turquía delante de las autoridades occidentales.

Το παρακάτω κείμενο είναι μια περικοπή από τον τόμο που κυκλοφόρησε από τις εκδόσεις «Ελεύθερος Τύπος» «Φεντεραλισμός Σοσιαλισμός Αντιθεολογισμός» του Μ. Μπακούνιν. Είναι, όπως φαίνεται και από τον τίτλο που επιλέχθηκε από μια φράση στο κείμενο, κομμάτι του κεφαλαίου για τον Αντιθεολογισμό. Ίσως είναι πράγματα που, θα πει κάποιος, πως έχουν ειπωθεί ή πως η επίκληση της επιστήμης έναντι της θρησκείας είναι χιλιοχρησιμοποιημένη στην τελευταία φάση εξέλιξης του καπιταλισμού. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, η φιλοσοφική αξία του κειμένου είναι αδιαμφισβήτητη και θα έλεγα πως σε καιρούς που ο σκοταδισμός επιστρέφει με ταχύτητα και μάλιστα, σε καιρούς που η αλματώδης τεχνολογική εξέλιξη του καπιταλισμού τον ντύνει με έναν μανδύα -ψευδο- προοδευτικότητας, η πολεμική, και κυρίως, η λογική της πολεμικής ενάντια στους παλιούς συμμάχους της εξουσίας, είναι περισσότερο από ποτέ αναγκαία.

08 de abril de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

No dia 18 de fevereiro deste ano, em plena quarta-feira de cinzas, o presidente da superpotência, Barack Hussein Obama pronunciou um discurso ímpar. O mandatário dos EUA abria com sua boa oratória o Encontro da Casa Branca para debater soluções contra o extremismo violento. No foco de seu discurso, uma abordagem compreensiva e bastante razoável do fenômeno do terrorismo sunita de inspiração religiosa. Diretamente Obama se referia às redes Al-Qaeda e Estado Islâmico (Daesh).

Se um leigo ou alguma pessoa desinformada escutasse a fala do presidente dos Estados Unidos, acreditaria na intenção correta do mesmo. O ex-senador por Illinois é um grande orador e trouxe de improviso a melhor das tradições democráticas estadunidenses. Estas combinam uma legítima absorção do caldeirão cultural de imigrantes (melting pot) e, ao mesmo tempo, a subordinação do discurso liberal e de respeito aos direitos humanos para com a lógica da geopolítica e do mais cínico realismo nas relações internacionais.

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

Este ensayo es el comienzo de un intento de desarrollar un enfoque libertario de izquierda, hacia un modelo económico, específicamente en relación con un modelo que sea compatible con los partidos políticos del Confederalismo Democrático, también conocido como Municipalismo Libertario. En esta etapa, el objetivo es el desarrollo de un trabajo conjunto de análisis y herramientas de aprendizaje, que deberán lograrse en el marco de la Izquierda Libertaria. Para ello presento este texto relativamente simple para proporcionar nociones accesibles para aquellos que luchan por construir una sociedad basada en Confederalismo Democrático, tomando como base el avance de la revolución social en el Curdistán, proceso social coordinado por el Partido de los Trabajadores del Curdistán (PKK).

Through libertarian communism we can reach a point of balance between the capacities to produce, the needs of populations, and the limits of the biosphere. We cannot build our future in opposition to the rest of life. The ideology of domination must be broken everywhere, so that humanity can find a safe future on its planet.

textRiflessioni tardive sul massacro di Charlie Hebdo Mar 29 16:57 by Mazen Kamalmaz 0 comments

L'attacco a Charlie Hebdo dello scorso gennaio era stato attentamente concepito per dare il massimo vantaggio allo Stato Islamico, ma ne ha tratto vantaggio anche la classe dominante del mondo a capitalismo avanzato. Non si cercava di punire l'atteggiamento satirico di Charlie Hebdo verso ciò che ISIS considera "sacro", bensì di punire quei milioni di musulmani che avevano accettato tale atteggiamento in silenzio, specialmente quei musulmani che vivono in Francia e in occidente. [English]

textLate contemplations about the Charlie Hebdo massacre Mar 24 22:41 by Mazen Kamalmaz 0 comments

The attack on Charlie Hebdo last January was carefully designed to the full benefit of IS, but also to the benefit of the ruling Elite in the advanced capitalist world. It was not intended as punishment for Charlie Hebdo's satiric attitude toward what IS considers as "sacred", but as punishment for millions of Muslims who accepted such an attitude by their silence, especially Muslims who live in France and the west. IS, like everyone else, knew very well that Muslims in Europe and the west will be under heavier pressure after such an attack. IS offered Muslims only one way to defend themselves: to accept its fundamentalist hyper-dogmatic version of Islam and join its ranks - martyrdom and heaven through killing and suicide bombing. The message of IS was clear: freedom of conscience and expression is never a part of Muslims' identity, so it must be declined, denied and fought against. Both IS and the western elite accepted this as a "fact". [Italiano]

Hoy más que nunca, los conflictos laborales atraviesan fronteras. El sector marítimo y portuario ha sido históricamente sensible a esta realidad, organizándose internacionalmente para defender los intereses de los y las trabajadoras. Clara muestra de esto es la acción en solidaridad organizada por los estibadores de Iquique, agrupados en la Federación de Trabajadores Portuarios de Iquique (FETRAPI) el pasado viernes 20 de febrero, que en el inicio de las faenas del primer turno sostuvieron una charla sobre el conflicto que tienen actualmente sus hermanos estibadores de la Costa del Pacífico de Estados Unidos, organizados en el Sindicato Internacional de Estibadores y Almacenes (ILWU). Además de reunirse para analizar la situación de sus compañeros estadounidenses, se desplegó un lienzo para demostrar que los portuarios de Chile están atentos al conflicto que ya lleva 9 meses, afirmando que se tomarán medidas de solidaridad internacional si no se llega a un acuerdo que cumpla las demandas de los trabajadores.

Flora Célestine Thérèse Henriette Tristán y Moscoso Lesnais (1803-1844) era una scrittrice francese di origini peruviane. Poco nota nella storiografia ufficiale e probabilmente intenzionalmente dimenticata in ragione della spinta alla ribellione e del desiderio di libertà che animavano i suoi scritti. Tra i quali ricordiamo Le peregrinazioni di una paria (1839), < (1840) e l'opuscolo i>Promenades dans Londres, Union ouvrière (L'unione operaia) (1843). [Castellano]

Flora Célestine Thérèse Henriette Tristán y Moscoso Lesnais (1803-1844) was a French writer of Peruvian descent. Little known in official historiography, probably intentionally forgotten because of the rebellion and desire for freedom that emanates from her writings. Among her works were Peregrinations of a Pariah (1839), Promenades in London (1840) and the booklet The Workers' Union (1843). [Castellano]
