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.

Primo Maggio Comunista Anarchico

Il Primo maggio, ieri come oggi, significa rispetto per le mobilitazioni dei lavoratori di tutto il mondo che hanno sofferto, pagando anche con le proprie vite, nelle lotte per cambiare la condizione di uomini e donne sottoposte al controllo del capitalismo nel mondo.

Noi comunisti anarchici rivendichiamo la lotta per un cambiamento radicale della società verso una società di libertà, uguaglianza e solidarietà, ma non possiamo dimenticare che in molti paesi non si è ancora raggiunto il livello minimo di garanzie di espressione sindacale, e c'è chi lavora a condizioni e salari subumani. Il nostro pensiero oggi va a queste realtà con il rafforzamento delle reti di sostegno alle lotte dei popoli di tutto il mondo.

Il compito dei comunisti anarchici e dei rivoluzionari per la libertà e l'uguaglianza è di raccogliere questa memoria e portarla nelle lotte del presente, quale forza agente parte costitutiva del movimento dei lavoratori, un movimento che deve diventare una vera forza rivoluzionaria in grado di distruggere il capitalismo e inaugurare una nuova era di libertà, solidarietà e uguaglianza.

Comunicato internazionale per il Primo Maggio, a firma di: Alternative Libertaire (Francia), Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici (Italia), Workers Solidarity Movement (Irlanda), Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (Sud Africa), Common Cause (Canada).

The main means of all ruling elites throughout history to force the people to submit to their rule was to recruit metaphysical powers - magic, deities and other kinds of lies to
frighten people into submission and accepting authority. People who challenge these lies
were the main enemy of the rulers all along history.

07 de julho de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

Os Estados Unidos são um país multicultural, pluriétnico e com uma perigosa sobreposição da questão social (divisão da sociedade em classes) com a segmentação étnico-racial, segundo definição oficial do governo central da superpotência. Embora não tenha passado de tímidas políticas keynesianas, a administração de Barack Obama (democrata), eleito em 2008 e reeleito em 2012, marcou o início de uma possível era pós-racial nos Estados Unidos. Aparentemente, a Era pós-racial marcaria um momento na vida política e no ambiente doméstico da superpotência onde cada grupo étnico formaria sua elite relativa e formas de ascensão social. A reprodução das idéias mais à direita (dentro do espectro político dos EEUU) seria através dos milhões de gestores e proprietários de micro e pequenos negócios étnicos. O conceito tem falhas e incoerências, como afirmo abaixo.

Las comunidades latino-americanas dentro de la superpotencia, tienen importantes referenciales políticos en movimientos a la izquierda y son blancos, de persecución sistemático de las fuerzas represivas, que recrudecieron después del Acto Patriótico. imageEEUU, Ted Cruz y el giro a la derecha para los latino-americanos Jun 29 19:20 by BrunoL 0 comments

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.

Σε αυτήν την ενότητα θα ερευνήσουμε κάποιες από τις πλέον συγκλονιστικές περιπτώσεις εμπλοκής του αναρχισμού και του συνδικαλισμού στους εθνικοαπελευθερωτικούς αγώνες. Θα εστιάσουμε σε αγώνες που διεξήχθησαν στο εσωτερικό χωρών που βρίσκονταν υπό ιμπεριαλιστική κυριαρχία. Βέβαια, αυτή είναι μόνο η μισή ιστορία της αναρχικής και συνδικαλιστικής συμμετοχής στους αντιιμπεριαλιστικούς αγώνες, καθώς ένα σημαντικό μέρος της αντιιμπεριαλιστικής ιστορίας της ευρύτερης αναρχικής παράδοσης έχει να κάνει με τους αντιμιλιταριστικούς αγώνες στο εσωτερικό των ίδιων των ιμπεριαλιστικών χωρών· επαναλαμβάνουμε ότι αυτό το σκέλος έχει συζητηθεί στο κεφάλαιο 8, όπου μελετήθηκε η αντίθεση των αναρχικών στον πόλεμο και τις κατακτήσεις.

Ο αναρχισμός είναι ένα διεθνιστικό κίνημα. Όπως ακριβώς η εργατική τάξη και οι αγρότες βρίσκονται σε όλον τον κόσμο και όπως ακριβώς ο καπιταλισμός και η γαιοκτησία υπάρχουν παντού, έτσι και οι αγώνες είναι απαραίτητο να διεξάγονται και να συντονίζονται πέρα από τα όρια των συνόρων. Το κράτος αποτελεί εργαλείο των πλουσίων και των ισχυρών, όχι τη φωνή ενός λαού ή μιας χώρας, συνεπώς ο αγώνας δεν θα πρέπει να περιορίζεται στα κρατικά σύνορα· τα βασικά συμφέροντα των λαϊκών τάξεων είναι ουσιαστικά παντού τα ίδια.

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

Nosotros, los latino-americanos, tenemos una identidad múltiple y diversas, cuando nos referimos a las distintas razas y colectividades étnico-culturales de los países del Continente. A la vez, reforzamos la idea de que “nadie es gringo al sur del Río Grande”, de México a la Patagonia, somos todas y todos hermanos. A la vez, por el hecho de que nuestros territorios, aún viven la pesadilla de la injusticia social basada en la orden post-colonial, además tenemos al “gran hermano del norte”, como nuestro tormento permanente. Esto puede llevarnos a tener una visión equivocada, del ambiente doméstico dentro de los estados que forman EEUU.

textFIFA and the United States: The Russian Connection Jun 10 19:00 by George Wright 0 comments

On May 27th the United States Department of Justice issued a 47-count indictment against nine International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) officials and five executives of FIFA-affiliated sports management firms. The charges the United States pressed included racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering amounting to $150-million over a 24-year period. That morning, the Swiss Government also arrested seven of the indicted defendants at a Zurich hotel, while holding them for possible extradition to the United States. The United States and Switzerland also announced that criminal investigations into FIFA's 2010 decisions to award the World Cup to Russia for 2018 and to Qatar for 2022 would continue. Is there a basis for the United States’ allegations of corruption against FIFA officials and affiliated sports executives? Why is the United States involved in issuing indictments against FIFA officials and affiliated sports executives? How will the United States targeting FIFA corruption play out?

A participação limitada na América Latina mostrou seus limites e hoje já vivemos a crise dos governos bolivarianos como modelo de desenvolvimento autônomo, sendo que a mais aguda delas é justamente da Venezuela pós-Chávez. imageA necessidade de um pensamento radical latino-americano Jun 06 07:52 by BrunoL 0 comments

Recentemente tive a oportunidade de fazer uma comparação de cenários políticos em um programa de rádio do Rio Grande do Sul. Estamos em um momento onde os governos de centro-esquerda ou vivem em crise (caso do Brasil e Argentina), ou aderem parcialmente às teses do Império (caso de Chile e Peru) ou estão sob uma severa crise institucional, tal é o que ocorre na Venezuela. Vale observar que nestes países (Bolívia, Equador e o já citado país de Bolívar) as instituições não são sólidas e este é o labirinto. Quando há arranjo institucional fortalecido, o regime se mantem, mas as chances de transformação são pequenas. Já, quando não há estrutura fortificada e separação entre governo e Estado, há a tendência de que as elites dirigentes e suas sócias majoritárias transnacionais exerçam um poder discricionário. Ainda assim, pouca institucionalidade implica em maior poder da mobilização popular. E esta é nossa única chance, sempre.

What should we call the current era? Post-everything? Or perhaps, the interregnum? Whatever the name it should be given, the current period is characterized by neoliberal trans-nationalization. In addition, U.S. hegemony has been under question since the beginning of this period. In fact, the Empire is no longer U.S.-American and a change in hegemony is in full swing. Despite what world-systems theorists such as Giovanni Arrighi suggest, the balance does not seem to be tipping toward China. Nevertheless, as Niall Ferguson points out, it is moving toward Chimerica. Furthermore, since the beginning of the global financial crisis, no project has been in sight that could reorganize the active consensus of the subalterns, move perspectives on accumulation one step up the ladder, and provide a position capable of establishing a new world order.

Nesse artigo, os autores realizam uma discussão da organização política anarquista. Partem das contribuições relativas ao tema de Mikhail Bakunin e Errico Malatesta mostrando que há similaridades entre elas e a da Plataforma Organizacional da União Geral dos Anarquistas. Conforme apontam, Bakunin constitui a base teórica da Plataforma e Malatesta possui posições que alguma vezes aproximam-se dela e outras da Síntese Anarquista. Consideram, assim, que nenhuma das posições em questão pode ser coerentemente inscrita no campo do marxismo/bolchevismo ou de um suposto “anarcobolchevismo”. Os autores analisam o debate entre Malatesta e Nestor Makhno sobre a Plataforma mostrando onde, realmente, estão as divergências entre ambos. Por meio de uma reflexão histórica do impacto da Plataforma, demonstram como as críticas estabelecidas nos anos 1920, em grande medida realizadas por leituras ideologizadas, somadas a duas experiências práticas dos anos 1950 e a hegemonia francesa na discussão do tema, vêm pautando erroneamente o debate.

Durante un corto tiempo de duración, de la república del Kurdistán, que existió en 1946 bajo apoyo de la antigua Unión soviética, esta ciudad dio el nombre a un estado embrionario, cuyos líderes fueron fusilados por el régimen del Shah apoyado por los ingleses. Después de la Revolución Islámica de 1979, la situación de los kurdos del leíste no mejoró en la Región.

Istvan Meszaros, a well-known Marxist theorist, has material which can be interesting to anarchists. He has an insightful analysis of the current stage of capitalism and the state. He makes Marx's "withering away of the state" central to his program, and he rejects electoral party politics. But paradoxically, he also supports the late Hugo Chavez's attempted use of the Venezuelan state to move to socialism. How can we understand this and respond to it?

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.

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.

A review of David Graeber's book, Revolutions in Reverse. The author has some intelligent insights, such as the importance of recognizing where the justice movements have won victories. In other ways his thinking is sometimes muddled, as he tries to both reject the need for an insurrectionary revolution and, at the same time, to advocate it as part of his perspective of reversed revolutions.

Frente a la hipocresía y la indiferencia, apetece y hasta se impone ser un poco demagógicos. Digamos la verdad: Europa está acostumbrada a tirar gente al mar. Lo hizo durante siglos en el marco del rentabilísimo comercio de esclavos del que participaron todas las grandes naciones que dan hoy lecciones de humanidad y democracia al resto del mundo. El antropólogo Fernando Ortiz recordaba en uno de sus libros la cifra: en 1825 se calculaba que cada año los negreros clandestinos arrojaban al océano 3.000 esclavos vivos, bien para escapar de las patrullas, bien para desprenderse de la mercancía defectuosa. Muchos más habían muerto antes, durante el acarreo por el continente africano o durante la espera en los barracones del puerto.
