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).

Coordination anti-Otan

Dans le contexte actuel de crise, de raréfaction des ressources naturelles et énergétiques, les tensions s'accroissent entre les grandes puissances pour le contrôle de la planète. Pour répondre à cette nécessité les pays occidentaux développent leur bras armé, l'OTAN, afin de mener leur politique agressive et impérialiste.

L'OTAN, qui fête ses soixante ans d’existence, organise son sommet annuel les 3 et 4 avril sur la frontière franco-allemande (Strasbourg et Baden-Baden) sous la bannière de la liberté, la paix et la démocratie.

Nous appelons à manifester contre l'OTAN partout dans le monde et à participer au contre-sommet, au sein du village alternatif anti-OTAN, du 1er au 5 avril afin de contrecarrer les politiques bellicistes et impérialistes, par des manifestations, des actions, des rencontres et des débats.

Οι αντικοινοβουλευτικοί συνδικαλιστές και αρκε­τές κομμουνιστικές φράξιες που επικαλούνται το μαρξισμό, απέρριψαν την κατάκτηση των δημόσιων αρχών από τους σοσιαλιστές -είτε πριν από την επανάσταση, είτε στη διάρκεια της.
Όποιος κοιτάξει την ιστορία του σοσιαλισμού έπειτα από την αποπομπή των αναρχικών, θα μπορέ­σει να δει μόνος του τη βαθμιαία υποβάθμιση του μαρξισμού σαν πολιτικής φιλοσοφίας μέσα από τις ερμηνείες και την πρακτική των σοσιαλδημοκρατών.
Ο λενινισμός είναι, αναμφίβολα, μια επιστροφή στο επαναστατικό πνεύμα του μαρξισμού, συνάμα όμως είναι και μια επιστροφή στις ψευδαισθήσεις και στις αφαιρέσεις της μαρξιστικής μεταφυσικής.

Dicen que la historia la escriben los vencedores, aun así, eso no tiene demasiada importancia porque en tiempos de sobreabundancia de datos y cuando existen universidades para todo tipo de corrientes de pensamiento, sean conservadoras o revolucionarias, en una época en la que hay gurús de todas las escuelas apadrinados por la academia y cualquier espacio de reflexión crítico es asimilado, becado y promocionado por el sistema, el mercado oferta relatos históricos a la medida ideológica del consumidor, para que éste no desbarate una parte de su identidad predeterminada y pueda seguir con su vida normal, de producción y consumo.

Έχει ιδιαίτερη σημασία στο σημερινό πολιτισμικό πλαίσιο να τονιστεί η δυνα­μική της φυλετικής διάστασης του εθνικού φασισμού: ο βιολογικός αναγωγισμός της δεν έχει δεσμεύσεις, δεν έχει λόγο να περιορίζεται στο κοινωνικό σύνολο και στο σύστημα των κοινωνικών σχέσεων, εκτείνεται θεωρητικά σε κάθε άνθρωπο α­τομικά και στην κάθε προσωπική του σχέση. Το θεωρούμενο ότι μεταφέρεται με το «αίμα», είναι ένα βιολογικό σχέδιο, καθολικό για τη φυλή και ατομικό για το κάθε μέλος της. Εάν η δυναμική του νέου κρατικού-πολιτισμικού φασισμού συνδέεται με το εγγενές της κρατικής του υπόστασης, εθνικής και υπερεθνικής, η δυναμική του νέου εθνικού-φυλετικού φασισμού συνδέεται με την καθολικότητα του βιολογικού του αναγωγισμού. Ο εθνικός φασισμός σήμερα ολοκληρώνεται ως γενικά βιολογι­κός και όχι μόνο φυλετικός.

A crise de consciência de Snowden, somado ao esforço de jornalistas capitaneados pelo periódico inglês The Guardian, propiciou ao mundo o conhecimento das capacidades da Superpotência no ato de vigilância global em tempo real de praticamente todas as conexões cibernéticas e linguagens de sinais do planeta. A inteligência de sinais – sigint na sigla em inglês – coordenada pela NSA (também denominado de CSS, Serviço Central de Segurança na sigla em inglês) – abarca a capacidade de interceptação das comunicações eletrônicas e recebe um orçamento anual maior do que o Departamento de Comércio dos EUA.

The article below is a very short opinion about the Working class whether as a whole is a revolutionary class in term of leading us to a classless and none-hierarchical society or not. It explains that the world has been changed and so the working class, it refers to reality and real life rather than relying on the texts in the old and 'sacred' books.

textA governança global do fluxo de ilícitos financeiros e a evasão de divisas Aug 24 04:49 by BrunoL 0 comments

23 de agosto de 2017, Bruno Lima Rocha
Ao contrário da imagem mais difundida, os chamados “paraísos fiscais” não são necessariamente ilhas ou territórios isolados, mas sim soberanias vinculadas às potências globais como EUA, Grã Bretanha (e Commonwealth), Suíça, Alemanha e China. Considerando que Estados com projeção mundial são, de fato, controladoras destas “jurisdições especiais” que escoam a riqueza do planeta, seria razoável que os instrumentos e instituições de fiscalização e governança não estivessem vinculados a estes países. Mas, como forma o padrão hegemônico no Sistema Internacional (SI), ocorre justamente o oposto. Há uma sobreposição de interesses, levando a uma evidente suspeição desta arquitetura de governança financeira.

textWhat is Libertarian Socialism? An Anarchist-Marxist Dialogue Aug 03 13:43 by Wayne Price 2 comments

Libertarian Socialism is the brand of socialism which opposes statist, authoritarian, and oppressive varieties of socialism. It is anti-statist, radically democratic, self-managing, and humanistic. It blurs the boundaries between anarchism and Marxism, especially between class-struggle anarchist-socialism and libertarian-autonomist Marxism. These 15 essays place libertarian socialism in the context of various anarchists, syndicalists, council communists, decentralists, and libertarian communists--examining their views and histories.

This article points out a couple of issues that are slowing down our movement. They are single issue and individualism & lifestyle. Many of our comrades in UK an Europe work only on a single issue, in addition some of us do not try hard enough beyond our lifestyle . Of course, our weaknesses are not only these two , in fact there are many more but in this article I just concentrate on these two.

Καμία απόπειρα έλλογης δικαιολόγησης των αποφάσεων που διακυβεύουν τον κόσμο μας δεν ηχεί πλέον πειστική, και οι ίδιοι οι κρατούντες μοιάζουν να έχουν παραιτηθεί από κάθε προσπάθεια συγκάλυψης της ωμής, απερίφραστης και προκλητικά αυθαίρετης ισχύος: οτιδήποτε λέγεται από επίσημα χείλη έχει τον βαθμό λογικής συνέπειας του προλεχθέντος ανεκδότου, και από κανέναν δεν αναμένεται να παρθεί στα σοβαρά.

anarkismo_banner.jpg imageAnarchism, Ethics and Justice: The Michael Schmidt Case Jun 22 23:55 by Anarkismo Network 39 comments

When we have to deal with disagreements, conflicts and faults, these problems must be solved with a justice that is based on our libertarian ethical values. What does this concretely mean? That we have to hear all the parties involved and make sure to provide physical and psychological protection too all, especially if someone has – at least presumably – been hurt. In cases of sexual violence – for instance – we should not reproduce the bias of bourgeois patriarchal so-called “justice” that too frequently isolates (female) survivors and dismisses their feelings and words. It means that we have to establish means to examine the different positions and eliminate any doubts. That we have to have democratic and collective processes to deal with that and to take decisions and make recommendations. And, mainly, that we must first try to reeducate people instead of punishing or isolating them. Not that in some cases punishment or isolation couldn’t be the only solution, but, at least, we have to make (re)education a priority over punishment and isolation, which should be last resorts. To deal with these problems within our movement instances of ethical justice that aim to resolve major disagreements, conflicts and faults are necessary. These instance, such as an “ethics commission” for example, could be convened and articulated whenever one or more militants within our movement or organizations identify a problem of this kind and ask formally for the establishment of a commission. The establishment of a commission (or the denial) would be the result of a collective decision made by the deliberative and decision-making bodies of the respective organizations. If a commission is established, then a certain number of militants not involved with the case could be mandated to constitute the commission and be given a deadline to listen to the different parties involved, to develop positions, eliminate doubts and then to produce a written document with a position and recommendations to the respective organization.
To “solve the problem” means, here, to find ways to reach agreements, to find solutions to conflicts, to deal with faults and to eliminate doubts. Although giving preference to (re)education, the commission could decide for issuing a warning, suspension, sanction or even expulsion or "excommunication".
