Don Jennings (1960-2012)

The Anarkismo.net Editors Group wishes to express its deep sadness on the passing of our comrade Don Jennings. Don, or Randy as he was better known to us, was a member of our Editorial Group for a number of years, when this site was still in its infancy. He was also a regular contributor of reviews and articles.

We will always remember him as a deeply human person with a great sense of humour, calm and reflective, though passionate in his refusal to accept the injustices of this world. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. We take this opportunity to extend our solidarity and sympathy to his family and friends.

Occupy May 1st!

Build Power & Show Power through Mass Participatory Bold Action

To show our power, on May 1st, 2012, we will be organizing for such a mass participatory and bold collective action: a national general strike, mass boycott, student strike/ walk-out and mass day of action. We will be organizing within our unions- or informal workplace organizations where there’s no union or the union isn’t supportive- to hold a one-day general strike. Where a strike is not possible, we will be organizing people to call in sick, or take a personal day, as part of a coordinated “sick-out”. Those who are students will be walking-out of their schools (or not showing up in the first place). In the community, we will be holding a mass boycott and refusing to make any purchase on that day.

We, the 99%, will build our power and show our power until we've occupied our workplaces, our communities, our schools, our lives, our world... until we've occupied everything!

The following is a joint statement from the First of May Anarchist Alliance and The Utopian: A Journal of Anarchism and Libertarian Socialism.

We should strive to convince the movement that the problem in the US today is not just Wall Street or the corporations or the fact that the economic system is somehow being “gamed” or “rigged” by tricky selfish individuals. We need to explain that the cause of the crisis is the capitalist system itself, a system in which production is carried on only when it results in profits, the vast majority of which go to the tiny elite that runs the country. Correspondingly, we should work to persuade the movement that its ultimate aim should be the radical democratization of our entire society, in other words, a revolution in which the vast majority of people seize control of the economy and the country as a whole from the rich and disperse power and direct control of all aspects of social life as widely as possible. As a result, we should propose and support radical demands that both point in this direction and unite the broadest sectors of the population.

Este 2 de octubre de 2011, tomamos el predio ubicado en la fundición 2 cuadras abajo de la muralla como una forma de movilización pacífica, pero sobre todo encaminada a generar espacios para el pueblo de Oaxaca, en el cual pueda encontrar la posibilidad de organizarse desde abajo, con las colonias, con las personas libres en espacios que han sido utilizados por los que ven en el poder la posibilidad de enriquecerse con lo que es y siempre ha sido del pueblo (...) En las primeras horas de esta mañana en el lugar de la ocupación ubicada en la calle de Valerio Trujano, Colonia Ampliación San Juan; hemos recibido intimidación primero por una persona de complexión gruesa que conducía un automovil compacto marca athos de color gris después por parte de una patrulla de policía de número económico 605, con al menos 7 policías a bordo, después por 3 sujetos los que parecían ser policías vestidos de civil, para que aproximadamente a las 8:30 de la mañana llegaran a rodear al menos 7 patrullas de la Policía municipal de Oaxaca, acompañados de una camioneta tipo van sin logotipos, quienes respaldan a dos personas que dicen ser representantes de un funcionario de Protección Civil de nombre Manuel Maza Sanchez, MISMO QUE ASEGURA POR PARTE DE SUS VOCEROS LOS POLICIAS SER EL DUEÑO DE ESTE PREDIO EL CUÀL NO LE PERTENECE, así mismo varios golpeadores de dicho funcionario circulan por el lugar.

"When the women rise, the people advance" imageA Conservative Threat Offers New Opportunities for Working Class Feminism Feb 07 14:31 by Romina Akemi and Bree Busk 1 comments

In the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency, there were two important mobilizations that expressed radically different views on reproductive rights. The Women’s March on Washington, which took place the day after Trump’s inauguration, has been hailed as one of the largest mobilizations in US history. What began as a spontaneous call quickly ballooned into a movement that tapped into growing anxieties over the intentions of the new administration. The march drew some 500,000 to rally in Washington DC while sister marches were held across the country and even worldwide. One week later, another mobilization took place: the annual March for Life. While significantly smaller, this march still drew many attendees who were energized by celebrity speakers from the Trump administration. At this point, there is no certainty that the Women’s March will evolve into an actual social movement. This much is clear: the Women’s March represents a political opening to rebuild a revolutionary feminist movement (in conjunction with other developing struggles) that advances demands to improve the lives of working people and embraces conflict with the liberal, capitalist character of the feminist movement of the day.

Dos importantes movilizaciones ocurrieron en la primera semana de la presidencia de Donald Trump, expresión de dos visiones radicalmente distintas sobre los derechos reproductivos. La Marcha de Mujeres en Washington, sucedida al día siguiente de la toma de poder de Trump, ha sido calificada como una de las mayores manifestaciones en la historia de EE.UU. Lo que comenzó como un llamado espontáneo creció rápidamente hasta convertirse en un movimiento que puso de manifiesto la creciente aprehensión sobre los planes del nuevo gobierno. La marcha congregó alrededor de 500,000 personas en Washington D.C., con marchas paralelas a lo largo del país y alrededor del planeta. Una semana después, tuvo lugar una movilización muy distinta: la Marcha Anual Por la Vida. Aunque considerablemente menor, ésta congregó a un buen número de personas, incluyendo a célebres personeros del gobierno de Trump. En este momento no existe ninguna certeza de que la Marcha de Mujeres vaya a transformarse en un movimiento social legítimo. Lo que sí resulta claro es esto: la Marcha de Mujeres representa una oportunidad política para reconstruir un movimiento feminista libertario (en conjunto con otras luchas en incipiente desarrollo) que plantee demandas enfocadas en mejorar las vidas de los trabajadores y oposición al carácter liberal y capitalista del movimiento feminista actual.

"In order for us to heal and move forward...", say Writers Resist, "we wish to bypass direct political discourse, in favour of an inspired focus on the future, and how we, as writers, can be a unifying force for the protection of democracy."

La elección de Donald Trump es una más de una serie de insubordinaciones políticas espectaculares que, en conjunto, apuntan a un colapso de la hegemonía neoliberal.

textThe End of Progressive Neoliberalism Jan 23 15:18 by Nancy Fraser 0 comments

The election of Donald Trump represents one of a series of dramatic political uprisings that together signal a collapse of neoliberal hegemony. These uprisings include the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom, the rejection of the Renzi reforms in Italy, the Bernie Sanders campaign for the Democratic Party nomination in the United States, and rising support for the National Front in France, among others. Although they differ in ideology and goals, these electoral mutinies share a common target: all are rejections of corporate globalization, neoliberalism, and the political establishments that have promoted them. In every case, voters are saying “No!” to the lethal combination of austerity, free trade, predatory debt, and precarious, ill-paid work that characterize financialized capitalism today. Their votes are a response to the structural crisis of this form of capitalism, which first came into full view with the near meltdown of the global financial order in 2008.

This past week on January 11th, the body of Michael Israel, Sacramento organizer and late YPG volunteer, finally arrived in California from overseas. His journey back into the United States took over a month, and began in Syria with a ceremony and mourning procession to send him off. His California community has been awaiting his arrival, and organized a funeral procession of their own to welcome Michael home for the last time. Sacramento and Bay Area activists, individuals from the California Kurdish community, and Michael’s friends and family all came together to accompanied him from the San Francisco Airport to Lodi, his hometown. Over fifty people took part in the long-distance procession, traveling in around 20 cars, vans, and buses festooned with YPG and anti-fascist flags, flowers, and pictures of Michael.

The General Defense Committee of the Industrial Workers World (IWW) has become an important pole of struggle for pro-working-class revolutionaries in the Twin Cities. While active on a number of different fronts it is the participation of the General Defense Committee (GDC) in the year-long struggle against police killings and brutality in the Twin Cities that has largely led to the significant growth of the organization. The GDC has grown to approximately 90 dues-paying members in Minnesota, and has several active working-groups. In the wake of Trump’s election victory, Wobblies (1) and others across the country have begun establishing their own GDC locals – strongly influenced by the Twin Cities’ model.

Debate "The claim that "syndicalist unions broke off from mainstream federations to form 'purely revolutionary' unions, cutting themselves off from the mass of workers" doesn't hold up, though it does conform to the Leninist orthodoxy of "Left-Wing" Communism: An Infantile Disorder. There were many countries where the syndicalist unions were the majority--such as Portugal, Spain, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru and Brazil. Syndicalist unions in South Africa, such as the Industrial Workers of Africa (modeled on the Industrial Workers of the World), were the only unions that organized native African workers, who were excluded from the white craft unions.
At the time of the mass occupation of the factories in Italy in September 1920, the USI (Italian Syndicalist Union) was claiming 800,000 members, and the factory councils formed throughout Italy in those events were mostly organized by the USI. Moreover, it was the anarcho-syndicalists who initiated a militia movement ("arditti del popolo") to fight Mussolini's fascist squads. But the Communists didn't cooperate, and the Socialist Party capitulated to fascism.


trumpgraph700.jpg imageTrump and the myth of the progressive but misled 'white working class' voters Dec 06 17:36 by andrew 1 comments

Once it became clear that Trump was going to become the president of the USA, my Facebook feed became cluttered with attempts to understand how that could possibly happen.  How could a white supremacist, misogynist and utterly transparent snake oil salesman accumulate so many votes?  Those on the left both inside and outside the borders of the USA struggled to understand what had happened. [Listen to the audio of this entire article] A common conclusion in too many of these pieces is that the left needs to reach out, and listen to the concerns of, those who voted for him as a priority.  In a similar fashion to how sections of the left evaluated Brexit, they see a working class anti-establishment rebellion in the Trump vote from what they term the ‘white working class’. They believe that component was won by Trump because it has been neglected by the left - often, they will assert, because the rest of the left was distracted by what they call identity politics. This is a simple explanatory story that is particularly attractive to those sections of the left that have a nostalgic yearning for an imagined past of pure class struggle, shorn of internal concerns around oppression.  But the concept of masses of otherwise progressive working class voters opting for Trump on economic grounds is a myth.  The attractiveness of that myth and its promotion has more to do with the hostility of that section of the left towards the influence of intersectional feminism than anything more substantive.  That hostility has caused them to seek out anecdotes and exceptional regions and present them as the typical story that defines the election just as liberal Hillary Clinton campaigners have focused in on Facebook false news stories as the cause of her defeat.

A strategy to defend our communities and to challenge Trump begins with us, the exploited workers. Together we hold the solution to Trump and to the bigger problems of capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy. Some sections of the ruling classes may share our desire to get rid of Trump, but only so that they can put another capitalist in the White House and then have us go through this cycle of crisis all over again. While we may end up marching with these people in the streets for the next four years, we know that our allies are those who also work to build the independent power of the exploited classes, not those who want us to pin our hopes on political candidates.
We must push for greater unity of working-class social movements. We need to reach out to others who are doing organizing in our areas and talk to them about working together. We should push for social movement organizations that we are part of – like labor unions, Black Lives Matter chapters, immigrant rights organizations – to organize city-wide summits to plan how to support each other and how to coordinate opposition to Trump. Between now and January 20th, we should organize as much national discussion and coordination between social movements and revolutionary organizations as possible. We should plan for mass protests on Trump’s inauguration day, and we should see these protests as organizing tools to continue building unity and to draw people into the day-to-day organizing in our communities where we will really be building the long-term power that we need to be a threat to the state.

2. Βγείτε στους δρόμους - οικοδομήστε οργανώσεις μαχητικής αντίστασης
3. Συγκροτείστε οργανώσεις άμυνας της εργατικής τάξης που θα αντιστέκονται στις ρατσιστικές επιθέσεις, τη σεξουαλική κακοποίηση, τις επιδρομές σε μετανάστες με το πρόσχημα της εσωτερικής ασφάλειας και ενάντια στις απελάσεις, την αστυνομική βία και την κρατική καταστολή

Across the US, from cities to rural areas, it is imperative that anarchists and anti-authoritarians strive to build organizations to battle the emboldened far right, to advocate through militant action the needs of working-class communities, and to combat state repression.

What Needs to Be Done:
1. No to National “healing”, working with, or a grace period for the Trump Regime
2. Take to the streets – build a militant resistance
3. Build working-class defense organizations that resist racist attacks, sexual assault, immigration and homeland security raids and deportations, police brutality and state repression
4. Agitate and organize for workers actions – including a general strike against Trump
5. No to containment of the struggle back into the Democratic Party, electoralism and the Non-Profit Industrial Complex
