Anarchism can learn a lot from the feminist movement. In many respects it already has. Anarcha-feminists have developed analyses of patriarchy that link it to the state form. We have learned that no revolutionary project can be complete while men systematically dominate and exploit women; that socialism is a rather empty goal if men's domination of women is left intact.

This essay argues that anarchists can likewise learn from the theory of "intersectionality" that emerged from the feminist movement. Indeed, anarchist conceptions of class struggle have widened as a result of the rise of feminist movements, civil rights movements, gay and lesbian liberation movements, etc. But how do we position ourselves regarding those struggles? What is their relationship to the class struggle? Do we dismiss them as "mere identity politics"?

Jamás he sido muy bueno para las matemáticas, pero el siguiente cálculo es bastante sencillo: súmense 10.000 nuevas tropas a Afganistán, sistemáticas violaciones en las ocupaciones de este país y de Irak, silencio cómplice ante dos genocidios, uno en Gaza, el otro en Sri Lanka (donde aún hay 300.000 seres humanos en campos de concentración), un golpe de Estado en Honduras donde la participación norteamericana ha sido un secreto a voces (aunque les haya salido el tiro por la culata), siete nuevas bases militares en Colombia y ¿qué tenemos de resultado? Un premio Nóbel de la “Paz” para el presidente de EEUU, Barack Obama.

En realidad, no me quita el sueño lo que hagan o dejen de hacer con un premio que vale bien poco, y que el único mérito que cuenta para obtenerlo es el cálculo político. Es verdad que este premio lo han recibido gentes de indudable valor como Pérez Esquivel, Rigoberta Menchú, Martin Luther King o Desmond Tutu. Pero estos casos en verdad son más bien excepcionales...

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.

Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε ένα κίνημα της εργατικής τάξης, που να εκτείνεται πέρα ​​από τα σύνορα και να μην αφήνει έδαφος στις καπιταλιστικές κυβερνήσεις που δεν έχουν καμία λύση για τα διεθνή προβλήματα, παρά μόνο τον πόλεμο. Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε την επανάσταση των εργατών και την ανατροπή του καπιταλισμού. Και μόνο τότε θα μπορέσουμε να οικοδομήσουμε έναν κόσμο ελευθερίας, ισότητας και αλληλεγγύης - έναν κόσμο σε ειρήνη.

Desestabilizar um rival em potencial é a regra para manutenção da hegemonia dos EUA na América Latina e, por tabela, diminuir a capacidade de articulação de China, Rússia e Índia. imageA dimensão estratégica internacional do “golpe” branco sendo aplicado no Brasil Apr 25 23:43 by BrunoL 0 comments

23 de abril de 2016, Bruno Lima Rocha

Ao contrário dos argumentos baseados no senso comum, o processo brasileiro de impeachment da presidente Dilma Rousseff, e sua caracterização como um golpe institucional, não formam um fenômeno político essencialmente nacional ou doméstico. Como todas as mudanças de regime ou desestabilizações regionais na América Latina, há uma presença constante, direta ou indireta, de forças oficiais ou oficiosas dos Estados Unidos da América. O senso de humor político aplicado para os momentos mais trágicos nos faz lembrar que: “o risco de golpe de Estado é menor em território soberano dos Estados Unidos porque lá não tem embaixada dos EUA!”.

Within the anarchist movement there are conflicting trends. Laurence Davis has written an essay which defends the reformist “exodus” trend in anarchism against the revolutionary "class-struggle” trend. In large part, he does this by defending Uri Gordon’s and David Graeber’s views against my criticisms. This is my response.

The struggle of the working class in South Africa is a struggle against the slave bondage of capitalism and the state. Capitalism and the state are based on the ruling class minority (capitalists, generals, top officials, professional politicians) exploiting and oppressing the working class majority (workers of all grades, our families, rank and file soldiers, the unemployed, and the rural poor). The two classes have totally different interests: we are locked in class struggle.

"Africa today lies prostrate, bleeding, and embattled on all fronts, a victim of capitalist and, to a great extent, state socialist ambitions. The heart-rending misery of its peoples, the conditions of abject poverty, squalor and disease in which they live, exist side by side with the wanton luxury, rapacity, and corruption of its leaders." Sam Mbah and I.E. Igariwey, 1997, African Anarchism: The History of a Movement, Sharp Press: Tucson, Arizona. Our vast continent, Africa, is the poorest in the world, host to dozens of wars and conflicts, and marked by instability and inequality. The root causes of the instability lie in political corruption and the profiteering system run by local and international elites. The local ruling classes are interested in making profits and getting wealthy, by any means necessary. The elites are not promoting the development of the working class and peasants (small farmers), but only worsening our conditions. If the choice is between building a road in a poor area or pocketing the money, they will pocket the money.

Roughly 50 years ago we saw the dismantling of most of the European colonial empires in Africa. High hopes greeted the "new nations" that merged - and certainly, a move from colonial rule, with its racism and external control and extractive economies, was progressive.

However, many of the hopes were soon dashed. Politically, most independent African states moved in the direction of dictatorships and one-party systems, normally headed by the nationalist party that took office at independence - and, over time, the military became a major player too. Many of these states were highly corrupt, even predatory, and the gap between the rising local (indigenous) ruling class, and the masses, grew ever vaster.

En el sentido horario, desde cima, a la izquierda: Bakunin, Malatesta, Arshinov, Makhno imageBakunin, Malatesta y el Debate de la Plataforma Mar 08 20:50 by Felipe Corrêa e Rafael Viana da Silva 0 comments

En este artículo, los autores desarrollan una discusión en torno a la organización política anarquista. Parten de las contribuciones relativas al tema de Mikhail Bakunin y Errico Malatesta mostrando que hay similitudes entre ellas y la Plataforma Organizacional de la Unión General de los Anarquistas. De acuerdo a lo que señalan, Bakunin construye la base teórica de la Plataforma y Malatesta tiene posiciones que a veces se acercan a ella y otras veces a la Síntesis Anarquista. Consideran, así que ninguna de las posiciones en cuestión puede ser coherentemente inscripta en el campo del marxismo/bolchevismo o de un supuesto “anarcobolchevismo”. Los autores analizan el debate entre Malatesta y Nestor Makhno sobre la Plataforma, mostrando donde, realmente, están las divergencias entre ambos. Por medio de una reflexión histórica del impacto de la Plataforma, demuestran como las criticas establecidas en los años 1920, en gran medida realizadas por lecturas ideologizadas, sumadas a las experiencias prácticas de los años 1950 y la hegemonía francesa en la discusión en el tema, viene pautando erróneamente el debate.

International Women’s Day is a day when the women’s movement around the world celebrates social, political and other achievements of women. It is also a good day for women to take a closer look at the oppression that flourishes through the double bondage of capitalism and patriarchy, and which is still an unfortunate and undeniable reality for the majority of women today.

Marx e l'omofobia

È da poco trascorso (sotto silenzio) un anniversario storico estremamente importante: il 21 febbraio 1848 venne pubblicata a Londra la prima edizione del "Manifesto del Partito Comunista" di Karl Marx e Friedrich Engels.

Attuale più che mai. Oggi, in molti invocano il ritorno della Vecchia Talpa: "E quando la rivoluzione avrà condotto a termine questa seconda metà del suo lavoro preparatorio, l’Europa balzerà dal suo seggio e griderà: ben scavato, vecchia talpa!". Colgo l'occasione per avanzare alcune riflessioni personali...

La publicación inglesa The Economist, en su primera edición del año (de 2 a 8 de enero de 2016) puso a la presidente Dilma Rousseff en la tapa, bajo el título Brazil’s Fall. Inmediatamente después de esta divulgación, hubo enorme repercusión en las redes. imageLos piratas ingleses atacan permanentemente Feb 25 09:12 by BrunoL 0 comments

Why can’t the 99% simply vote in a government that acts in their interest and not that of the 1%

At a simple level parliamentary elections sound like the ideal way for the mass of the ‘have nots’ to use their numbers to overcome the power and influences of the tiny number of have’s. Occupy talked about this division in the language of the 1% and 99%; a crude approximation that does reflect a reality where the number of wealthy decision makers is actually very tiny, indeed less than 1%. So, why can’t the 99% simply vote in a government that acts in their interest and not that of the 1%?

What if we build it and they don’t come? That was the experience of the left during the crisis - decades had been spent building organisations and a model of how crisis would create revolution but when the crisis arrived the left discovered that the masses weren’t convinced. The expected pattern of crisis leading to small strikes and protests, then to mass strikes and riot and then perhaps to general strike and revolution didn’t flow as expected. Under that theory the radical left would at first be marginal but then as conditions drove class militancy to new heights the workers disappointed by reformist politicians and unions leaders would move quickly to swell its ranks.

“Horitzontalisme” és un terme emergent utilitzat per descriure les característiques claus comunes de les ones de rebel·lió de la darrera dècada. “Occupy”, el 2011, ha estat el cim fins a la data, però el terme, per sí mateix, sembla originar-se amb la rebel·lió a l’Argentina després de la crisi bancària de 2001. Marina Sitrin en el seu llibre sobre aquella revolta utilitza el terme (en castellà, òbviament) per descriure el barri, lloc de treball i les assemblees d’aturats que sorgiren per formar “els moviments socials que clamaven per l’autogestió, l’autonomia i la democràcia directa.”

Na semana passada estava prevista uma reunião em Genebra, no marco das negociações indiretas entre o governo sírio e as facções da 'oposição' armada reunidas no grupo divulgado pelo nome tonitruante de Alto Comitê para as Negociações.
