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.

Anarchist Communists: a Question of Class

Anarchist Communists: a Question of Class is a theoretical position paper of the FdCA of Italy and a key contemporary exposition of the principles of anarchist communism – the principles of, among other organisations, the FdCA and southern Africa's ZACF. This critical review of Question of Class appeared in abridged form (for space reasons) in "Zabalaza" #10 (April 2009). The review is now published in full.

Anarchism is not an abstract ideal of freedom springing out of the brain of some intellectual. It is not a dream of utopia unconnected to reality. It is a movement of the exploited workers, beginning in their daily material struggles; and its history is marked by a sustained link between anarchist theory and the continuing struggles of mass working class movements.

This was the perspective of Mikhail Bakunin, the founding theorist of anarchism, whose revolutionary ideas grew out of his experience in the 19th century working class movement of the First International. It was the perspective of the Organisational Platform of the Libertarian Communists, drafted by Ukrainian and Russian anarchists in response to the defeat of the Russian Revolution by the Bolsheviks. It is the perspective taken by long-standing ZACF militants, van der Walt and Schmidt, in their two-volume history of anarchism, Counter-power. And it is the perspective of the ZACF's Italian comrades of the Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici (Federation of Anarchist Communists, or FdCA), in their excellent theoretical position paper “Anarchist Communists: a Question of Class”.

From June 4th to 7th, European voters are called to the polls to choose who will "represent" them in the European Parliament.
As anarchist communists, we do not think elections can bring any real change, as we prefer direct democracy to representative democracy. In other words, we prefer decisions affecting all workers to be discussed and made by those workers themselves, collectively.

The European Union's functioning and goals are opposed to this self-managing model and thus to the interests of the workers and the people. Its leaders despise the people so much that, although they may ask for our opinion, the only answer allowed is one which accepts the EU's political line which has already been decided eslewhere. The EU's attitude to the rejection by referendum of the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe exemplifies this fact.

textArgentina, fondi avvoltoi e BRICS: solo coincidenze? Aug 27 23:35 by Donato Romito 0 comments

Nel 2001-2002 l'Argentina andò in default. Bancarotta. Tutti ricordiamo l'ira popolare, le manifestazioni del "cacelorazo", i mercati di quartiere con moneta libera e di libero scambio, l'esperienza delle "fabricas recuperadas" ed autogestite. Crogiuolo di rinascita anche del movimento libertario organizzato. Magari ricordiamo pure l'ira dei non pochi investitori italiani, mica solo quelli milionari, mal consigliati dalle banche, mobilitarsi per avere il rimborso dei bond argentini da loro acquistati per pura speculazione. Dopo il default, l'Argentina ha ristrutturato il suo debito per 191 mld di dollari, dilazionando le scadenze dei bond al 2005 e 2010, senza ricorrere alle draculesche politiche di austerity del FMI.

The publishing cooperative Radical Theory & Practice from Moscow has initiated a new project: translating Emma Goldman's autobiography "Living My Life" into Russian and printing it for distribution. This will be the first ever, integral translation of the work into Russian. However, we are facing some big financial hurdles, and currently have €3,000 in the minus column. We do not want to stop working on the project due to profit margins or lack thereof, but as most of us are fully employed within the cooperative we need to ensure our daily costs are covered.

O ISDA opera – literalmente - como a cúpula que “auto-regula” a si mesmo, a partir do acerto de interesses dos grandes fraudadores da bolha especulativa de 2008. Estes são os julgadores dos casos de default. imageA cúpula do terror financeiro global Aug 19 08:24 by BrunoL 0 comments

Bruno Lima Rocha, 18 de agosto de 2014

O Comitê de Determinações da Associação Internacional de Swaps e Derivativos (ISDA, ver o site dc.isda.org) equivale a uma instância globalizada de classificação de “riscos”, afirmando, por exemplo, se algum país está em default (calote) ou não. Este órgão foi criado em 2009, para tentar impor uma legitimidade a partir dos próprios fraudadores do sistema financeiro mundial. O jornal O Globo, em sua edição de 1º de agosto (página 24, em matéria de Marcio Beck e Rennan Setti) apresenta a informação dos componentes deste Comitê, sem fazer o contraponto do passado recente destes conglomerados do cassino do capital fictício. Bastaria consultar o domínio do Comitê, observar a composição dos membros das Américas e cruzar com informações difundidas pela grande mídia para dar-se conta de que, literalmente, quem está arbitrando o conflito é parte geradora da quebradeira de setembro de 2008.

El caso de la renegociación de valores de los títulos de la República Argentina necesita un análisis en profundidad para entender y hacer la crítica a los operadores financieros que chantajean a un país entero. Pero en este breve artículo la meta se queda en la estructura de legitimación que circunda al capital ficticio –observada a partir de este caso específico– apropiadamente denominada “El Terror Financiero” por los críticos más contundentes.

La otra noche vi 1984, de George Orwell, representada en los escenarios de Londres. Pese a que pide a gritos una interpretación contemporánea, las advertencias de Orwell sobre el futuro se presentaron como una obra perteneciente a un periodo remoto e inofensivo. Parecía como si Edward Snowden nunca hubiera hecho públicas sus revelaciones, el Gran Hermano no fuera hoy un espía digital y el propio Orwell nunca hubiera dicho aquello de «para dejarse corromper por el totalitarismo no hace falta vivir en un país totalitario».

The other night, I saw George Orwells's '1984' performed on the London stage. Although crying out for a contemporary interpretation, Orwell's warning about the future was presented as a period piece: remote, unthreatening, almost reassuring. It was as if Edward Snowden had revealed nothing, Big Brother was not now a digital eavesdropper and Orwell himself had never said, "To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country."

In 1871, Karl Marx wrote that governments use war as a fraud, a ‘humbug, intended to defer the struggle of the classes’. In 1914, that fraud was so effective that not only most workers but also most Marxists supported their respective nation’s rush to war. Ever since then, governments have used war to defer class struggle and prevent revolution. But this strategy cannot last forever.[1]

Dalla 6ª Riunione del Vertice dei leader del blocco di paesi composto da Brasile, Russia, India, Cina e Sud Africa (Brics) sono uscite indicazioni per un obiettivo e per due certezze. Il fatto concreto è dare ordine alla redistribuzione geografica del capitalismo mondiale. Fondare i pilastri di una Nuova Banca per lo Sviluppo ed un Fondo di Contingenza sono passi importante per sovrapporsi al moribondo ordine scaturito da Bretton Woods. [Português]

I diversi fattori che al momento sembrano scollegati tra loro delineano il punto di caduta o, almeno, il tentativo del capitale di trovare un nuovo equilibrio internazionale per assicurare una nuova fase di accumulazione capitalistica, in area occidentale (USA-EU). Ciò che viene comunemente definita crisi e che dal 2008 affligge interi popoli sembra non poter uscire dalla propria dimensione monetaria. Una politica monetaria - che vede le banche commerciali protagoniste nella creazione di danaro attraverso il prestito reso possibile dall'aumento del debito - ha una funzione temporale necessaria a proteggere la capitalizzazione del sistema finanziario, ma ha il pregio di mostrare a tutti quali sono le dinamiche del potere finanziario.

The leader of the International Marxist Tendency has written an attack on anarchism from his Trotskyist perspective. He makes some correct criticisms of some versions of anarchism, in relation to those who reject revolution or political organization. But he attempts to defend the idea of a "workers' state" by limited quotes from Lenin and by mistating the history of the Russian revolution. [Italiano]

Ο Πιοτρ Β. Ριαμπόφ είναι ιστορικός και φιλόσοφος, διδάκτωρ του Παιδαγωγικού Κρατικού Πανεπιστημίου της Μόσχας. Ενεργός στο αναρχικό κίνημα από το 1987, με πλούσια αρθρογραφία, επικεντρώνει το έργο του αφενός στην προβληματική του υπαρξισμού στην σύγχρονη κουλτούρα και αφετέρου στην ιστορία των κινημάτων απελευθέρωσης. Η συνοπτική, συγκριτική θέση του για τον «άνθρωπο που εξεγείρεται» στο έργο του Μπακούνιν και του Καμύ ταξιδεύει εδώ με αφορμή τα 200 χρόνια από τη γέννηση του Ρώσου φιλοσόφου και καλεί σε μια συζήτηση για τον «εξεγειρόμενο» του σήμερα.

Alcune sue critiche a certe correnti dell'anarchismo risultano corrette, in particolare in relazione a coloro che rifiutano la rivoluzione o l'organizzazione politica. Ma egli poi cerca di difendere l'idea di uno "stato operaio" ricorrendo a limitate citazioni di Lenin e mistificando la storia della rivoluzione russa. [English]

textLa lulización de la izquierda latinoamericana Jun 25 20:33 by pablo stefanoni 0 comments

Desde fines de los años 90, América Latina viene transitando lo que a falta de términos más precisos se ha definido como pos-neoliberalismo, y que el presidente ecuatoriano Rafael Correa denominó “cambio de época”. Se trata, sin duda, de una variedad de experiencias difícilmente reductibles a la extendida clasificación de las “dos izquierdas”. Este clivaje, que Álvaro Vargas Llosa sintetizó –apelando a metáforas maniqueas- como izquierdas vegetarianas (Chile, Brasil, Uruguay) contra izquierdas carnívoras (Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador) corre el riesgo de congelar imágenes demasiado acotadas de procesos atravesados por una gran diversidad de pliegues y ángulos de análisis –pero tampoco capta las convergencias entre ambas orillas-. Problemas similares encontramos con quienes, desde la izquierda radical, realizan la misma disección pero colocando del lado correcto a los gobiernos revolucionarios y del negativo a los reformistas. Que recientemente un largo artículo en The New York Times elogie la gestión macroeconómica de Evo Morales con el término “prudente” (1), que La Nación –“el diario de la oligarquía argentina”- titule un artículo “Bolivia da la nota” (2) o que el programa “Dinero” de la CNN le haya entregado la “medalla de oro” al país andino diciendo que “Bolivia está mejor desde 2005” (3) constituyen ilustrativas advertencias tanto para los antipopulistas furibundos como para quienes creen que en el bloque bolivariano se estaría transitando la salida del capitalismo. Lo mismo ocurre con el interesante proceso ecuatoriano, que combina transformaciones profundas –e incluso refundacionales- con un nacionalismo dolarizado.
