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.

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.

Turquía apoyará al Estado Islámico porque les sirve en la lucha contra los kurdos –que amenazan la integridad del Estado kemalista- y en su lucha en contra de Assad –piedra en el zapato para el proyecto sunita sectario de las dictaduras fundamentalistas pro-EEUU. Sencillamente, le son funcionales. Y los protegerá todo lo que pueda, aunque eso le cueste tensiones con Rusia. Ahora, Erdoğan es quien podría haber dado el empujón necesario para que Rusia se decida a dar el respaldo y reconocimiento al movimiento de liberación kurdo, que necesita urgentemente armas y apoyos logísticos. Esa es la preocupación de la OTAN por la integridad territorial turca.

La vulgata vorrebbe i comunisti anarchici, alias "piattaformisti", alias cripto-marxisti infiltrati, come immutabili nel tempo e nello spazio, assolutamente fedeli al sacro verbo della "Piattaforma Organizzativa dell'Unione Generale degli Anarchici" elaborata nel 1926. Ovviamente la cosa è destituita di ogni fondamento poiché nei decenni successivi sono stati scritti decine di documenti teorici e pratici che arrivano fino ai giorni nostri, in tal senso l'America Latina è una vera e propria fucina.

Ο ιμπεριαλισμός, όπως εκφράζεται είτε από τις μεγάλες Δυτικές δυνάμεις είτε από ανερχόμενες δυνάμεις όπως η Κίνα ή η Ρωσία, είτε, ακόμα και από μικρές περιφερειακές δυνάμεις, όπως η Νότια Αφρική, δεν ωφελεί την πλειοψηφία των λαών τους. Επίσης, προφανώς, δεν είναι προς όφελος των συμφερόντων των απλών ανθρώπων που υπόκεινται στον ιμπεριαλισμό - αν και οι τοπικές άρχουσες τάξεις βρίσκουν συχνά τρόπους για να φιλοξενήσουν το σύστημα.
Αυτό σημαίνει ότι ο αγώνας ενάντια στον ιμπεριαλισμό δεν είναι μια μάχη μεταξύ ενωμένων εθνών ή περιφερειών, όπως ο «Βορράς» ή ο «Νότος», αλλά ένας αγώνας που πρέπει να καθοδηγείται από τις λαϊκές τάξεις, σε όλο τον κόσμο, κατά των αρχουσών ελίτ, σε όλο τον κόσμο.

This pamphlet by the “enigmatic” title “Alpha below zero - Nemesis and new anarchy”, appeared online almost a year ago in Greek language by Anarpsy project. Anarpsy is a project about speech, theory and analysis in the context of social psychology, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic approach and psychiatry through Antiauthoritarian - Anarchist perspective, in order to analyse the reality of social and political phenomena. “Alpha below zero” is the second Anarpsy’s pamphlet. (The first was the “ELthnikismos (ΗELlenicNATIONALISM), - A contribution to the understanding of Greek nationalism”). “Alpha below zero” reflects a shift towards nihilism that exists into so-called neo-anarchists.

Από αυτήν την πλευρά, τασσόμενοι ενάντια στον ιμπεριαλισμό άνευ όρων, συμπεριλαμβανομένου οτιδήποτε εξοργίζει το γαλλικό Κράτος, είναι τώρα κάτι το δικαιολογημένο. Αλλά επίσης, τασσόμενοι ενάντια στους αντιδραστικούς αντι-ιμπεριαλιστές με τα αντιδραστικά προγράμματα, και για έναν προοδευτικό αντι-ιμπεριαλισμό, όπως αυτόν του ΡΚΚ στο Rojava. Το ίδιο το ΡΚΚ που έχει επίσης υποστεί επιθέσεις από ISIS.

Europe est consumée par la peur, la haine, l'anxiété, l'instinct de supériorité impériale. Dans l'immédiat, nous allons entendre des appels à riposter de manière énergique, à approfondir exactement la même politique interventionniste qui a produit la catastrophe au Moyen-Orient. Cette politique qui est en fin de compte responsable de l'immense tragédie humaine qui se déroule dans les rues de Damas et Paris. Ils tirent profit de la guerre, tandis que les gens ordinaires (en Syrie, la France, en Turquie, au Kurdistan, où que ce soit) paient de leur sang.[Castellano]

textArab Spring and Syrian Refugee Crisis: Ten Theses for Discussion Nov 18 16:26 by Gerardo Otero and Efe Can Gürcan 0 comments

Our goal is to formulate ten theses on what we believe constitutes the historical background of the Syrian refugee crisis within the context of the Arab Spring. One central argument is that Western meddling in this process was turned into a violent contest for state power that has resulted in grave human tragedy. The recent Paris attacks with over 100 fatalities – resulting in a state-of-emergency declaration and arson of refugee camps in retaliation – indicate that the Syrian refugee crisis has already taken on a greater importance for global politics.

Il terrorismo islamico è solo una forma di depistaggio. È proprio una curiosa circostanza, niente affatto casuale, quella in cui uno degli attentatori di Parigi porti addosso un prezioso documento personale come il passaporto (guarda caso, di nazionalità siriana). Una strana "circostanza" che somiglia molto ad un atto di depistaggio. Siamo giunti al paradosso che chiunque si sforzi di ragionare liberamente (e criticamente) con la propria testa è accusato di "fantasticare"...

Europa está siendo consumida por el miedo, el odio, la ansiedad, el instinto de superioridad imperial. Por lo pronto, veremos llamados a responder de manera enérgica, a profundizar exactamente la misma política intervencionista que ha producido el descalabro en el Medio Oriente. Política que, en última instancia, es responsable de la enorme tragedia humana que está ocurriendo en las calles de Damasco y de París. Ellos se llevan las ganancias de la guerra, mientras la gente común y corriente (en Siria, en Francia, en Turquía, en Kurdistán, donde sea) es la que pone los muertos. [Français]

As the 100th anniversary of the outbreak in August 1914 of World War One fades, let us remember that imperialism harms all working class people – including those in imperialist and Western countries, and the white working class.

It is often said that Western workers benefit from imperialism, or imperialist profits, or that welfare in the West is funded by imperialism – but all of these claims fall in the face of realities like World War One (1914-1918). This war – between Germany and Britain and their respective allies – was, at least in part, fought for a re-division of the European-ruled colonies.

Let us approach from the side of the struggle of working class and poor for freedom, and that means the struggle against all oppression and exploitation. From that side, be against imperialism, unconditionally, including whatever outrages the French state will now justify. But also be against reactionary anti-imperialists with reactionary programmes, and for a progressive anti-imperialism, like that of PKK in Rojava. The working class and left must lead anti-imperialist struggles, and work with progressive movements, including progressive anti-imperialists, to make a better world, pushing those struggles towards anarchist-communism.

Η προπαγάνδα στηρίζεται στους ψυχολογικούς μηχανισμούς της αλλαγής των στάσεων, καθώς και στη θεωρία των σχημάτων του Piaget: Οι πληροφορίες, που διαχέει, γίνονται εύκολα αποδεκτές, όταν δεν συγκρούονται με αυτές, που είναι ήδη οργανωμένες σε σχήματα και επομένως είναι ευχερέστερο να αφομοιωθούν. Τελικός στόχος η αναπροσαρμογή των σχημάτων και η αναδιάταξη των πληροφοριών που περιέχουν δεδομένου ότι αποτελούν δυναμικές οργανωσιακές δομές. Το περιεχόμενό τους είναι λογικό αλλά και συναισθηματικό και η επεξεργασία γίνεται και στα δύο επίπεδα, αν και οι περισσότερες έρευνες καταλήγουν ότι τελικά επικρατεί η θυμική διάσταση.

En décembre 2015 se tient à Paris le 21e sommet des chefs d’État consacré au changement climatique (Cop 21), censé prendre des mesures pour endiguer le péril.

Qu’en attendre ? Hélas rien. Cette grand-messe sera un écran de fumée. Les décideurs politiques (États) et économiques (multinationales) ne peuvent vouloir à la fois :
- la croissance infinie en produisant toujours plus, en vendant toujours plus, en exploitant, en délocalisant, en enrichissant toujours davantage une minorité de possédants ;
- une décroissance nécessaire par la relocalisation des productions, la réduction des gaspillages, la sobriété ­énergétique, la satisfaction des besoins du plus grand nombre par la répartition égalitaire des richesses.

Contradiction insurmontable.

C’est par la mobilisation de ceux qui y ont réellement intérêt – les travailleuses et les travailleurs de toute condition, manuels et intellectuels, urbains et ruraux, du Nord comme du Sud… – que l’on pourra changer la société, ­reprendre le contrôle de l’économie, et donc de l’avenir.

textSelf-Managed Class-Struggle Alternatives to Neo-liberalism, Nationalisation, Elections Oct 10 18:59 by Lucien van der Walt 0 comments

In this week’s "Global Labour Column," Lucien van der Walt expresses pessimism against statist Left policies as an alternative to neoliberalism. He advocates a working class Left approach that is freed of the failed statist past and rooted in historical anti-statist, libertarian Left traditions. He argues that statist Leftism is weakened by past crisis and current powerlessness, hence his call for a rebooted Left politics that must centre on self-managed class-struggle and universalism, rejecting notions that nationalisation or political parties can result in fundamental change. Van der Walt discusses, as an example, the bottom-up collectivisation of the anarchist/syndicalist Spanish Revolution, 1936-1939, and its strategic implications. Lucien van der Walt is Professor of Industrial Sociology at Rhodes University, South Africa, works on labour and left history and theory, and is involved in union and working class education and movements.

climate_capitalism.jpg imageThe State of Climate Change Oct 02 15:18 by Bongani Maponyane 0 comments

The planet is warming. This is not new to the earth’s history, which is billions of years old. But why the controversy regarding this fact? Does it lie in the association between climate change and the man-made contributing factors to this change? Is it because of the reality of the impact of the industrial age; the very foundations on which modern capitalism and empire has been built? Many within these industries spend billions on promoting the idea that climate change is a naturally-occurring phenomenon. But scientists around the world show convincingly that man-made fossil-fuel economies (economies built on the use of oil and coal, which release massive amounts of pollution and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, creating the greenhouse effect and global warming) have contributed, over a short period of time, to rapidly accelerating the usual naturally-occurring effect. The impact has been, amongst other things, rising sea levels, increased drought and destructive weather patterns. However, this knowledge has been met by a strong response from capitalists – and the politicians they fund – to throw doubt on the role and culpability of the industries that are causing the most damage (and have made them very rich and powerful.) They continue to fund “alternative” research and media propaganda to do so.

The international Anarkismo Network, which brings together class struggle anarchist organisations from more than a dozen countries in both the global South and North, and has relations with far more from across the globe, has noted with great surprise and concern the recent accusations by AK Press that Michael Schmidt is a fascist working undercover to infiltrate the anarchist movement. Before we can make any pronouncements on the matter, however, we need to carefully examine both the AK Press evidence, the article by Alexander Reid Ross, as well as Michael Schmidt’s response to the evidence and article. As a network Anarkismo has not taken sides, and will not accuse the accuser or the accused before there is more information and all the evidence has been presented. [Italiano]
