DECLARACION POLITICA DE VOCAL SOBRE LA AGRESION PARAMILITAR QUE SUFRIO LA CARAVANA DE OBSERVACION Y SOLIDARIDAD CON EL MUNICIPIO AUTONOMO DE SAN JUAN COPALA EL DIA 27 DE ABRIL DEL 2010

Hacemos un llamado a compañeros del mundo, que laboran en la tarea de Observación internacional a mantenerse atentos al proceso de lucha de los pueblos de Oaxaca, que como ha demostrado la brutal emboscada del 27 de abril, se encuentran en una espiral creciente de violencia y agresión por parte del gobierno y paramilitares.

Hacemos un llamado urgente a todas las organizaciones del movimiento social de la APPO y al movimiento social a nivel nacional e internacional a poner sus ojos en San Juan Copala y a organizarnos en un futuro inmediato en una gran caravana de solidaridad que rompa el cerco que mantiene el PRI-UBISORT contra el municipio autónomo de San Juan Copala

Joe Hill (1879–1915)

This article discusses how the early IWW used music both as an organising tool and as a means of developing a sense of community among its members. It puts these activities in the context of the politics and practical activity of the IWW during this period.

One of the main reasons for the establishment of the IWW in 1905 was a recognition that there was a need for a revolutionary labor union that could organise on a national level. The industrial tactic that the IWW promoted aimed at creating cohesion in the working class and ensuring that union organized workers would stand together and support each other when there was a strike. It was important for the IWW to organize groups of workers that others were hesitant to organize and in some cases directly hostile to, for example women, unskilled workers, unemployed workers, black workers and immigrants.
In their struggle to promote their politics, the IWW was a singing union. From 1910 to 1960 the IWW's songbook, still in print, was regarded by many workers as one of their most beloved possessions. The songbook was one of the IWW's most important documents and its songs were sung in numerous situations: around hobo campfires, in boxcars, in Wobbly halls, in the streets, on picket lines, at strike rallies, in court, on the way to jail and in jail. The songs were a crucial aid in recruiting new members, and they were important in building a sense of fellowship and in keeping spirits up in hard situations

Tournée «Usines sans patrons»

Usines sans patron : la réponse des classes populaires argentines à la crise économique de décembre 2001 - Tournée de conférences au Québec et en Ontario.

Du 18 janvier au 12 février prochain, Sebastián, un militant anarchiste de l’organisation Red Libertaria (Argentine), parcourra différentes villes du Québec et de l'Ontario à l'invitation de l'Union communiste libertaire et de Common Cause pour nous entretenir sur ce sujet. Il traitera des différentes formes de résistance développées par le peuple argentin pour contrer les effets de la crise: récupération d'usine, création de coopératives autogérées, etc. ainsi que de l'implication des anarchistes dans ces différentes luttes.

Le calendrier à peu près définitif est maintenant connu, tout comme les détails biographiques du conférencier.

Premier mai 2009: les anticapitalistes ciblent la CDPQ

Depuis quelques semaines, la Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec [CDPQ] a fait couler beaucoup d’encre. L’annonce des résultats de rendement de la Caisse a fait l’effet d’un puissant séisme, tant chez les financiers que pour la classe politique. Les travailleurs et les travailleuses, qui étaient déjà inquiets et inquiètes face aux conséquences de la crise économique, ont maintenant peur des répercussions sur les fonds de retraite administrés par la Caisse.

Les grands médias, les économistes et les partis d’opposition se sont surtout attardés aux mauvais résultats financiers dévoilés récemment par la CDPQ. Mais la Caisse, c’est plus que ça ! Cette institution est en fait l’un des principaux vecteurs du développement du capitalisme québécois, en particulier sous sa forme financière. La Caisse de dépôt, c’est l’utilisation de l’argent des travailleurs et des travailleuses à des fins de rentabilité et d’accumulation de capital sans aucune autre considération.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

El 9 de agosto en Ferguson del estado de Missouri, Michael Brown, un joven negro de 18 años, fue asesinado por la policía a pesar de estar desarmado, y de levantar las manos cuando era detenido. Brown estaba en camino a visitar su abuela con un amigo, la policía los detuvo cuando estos caminaban por la calle. El encuentro intensificó cuando Brown se resistió a ser detenido, e ingresar dentro del auto policial. Como trataban escaparse, la policía disparó a los jóvenes en repetidas ocasiones hasta dar con Brown. Su amigo, Dorian Johnson, dice que la policía continuó disparando aún después de que se dieran vuelta con sus manos levantadas.

"Et, peut-être, qu’un petit garçon ou une petite fille de Gaza survivent aussi. Peut-être qu’ils grandiront et, qu’avec eux, grandiront aussi la colère, l’indignation, la rage. Peut-être qu’ils deviendront soldats ou miliciens de l’un des groupes qui luttent en Palestine. Peut-être qu’ils se retrouveront à combattre Israël. Peut-être qu’ils le feront en tirant avec un fusil. Peut-être en s’immolant avec une ceinture de cartouches de dynamite autour de la taille. Et alors, là-haut, ils écriront sur la nature violente des palestiniens et feront des déclarations en condamnant cette violence et on recommencera à discuter s’il s’agit de sionisme ou d’antisémitisme. Et alors personne ne demandera qui a semé ce qui est récolté." (Sous-commandant Insurgé Marcos. Mexique, 4 janvier 2009)

textStatement from NYC Local of Black Rose Anarchist Federation regarding Cecily McMillan May 11 12:09 by M. Cinelli 0 comments

We stand in solidarity with Cecily McMillan and will in the future. Cecily has been punished in order to make an example out of the Occupy movement. At the same time we must look at the bigger picture. By the end of today, another life, activist or not, will have been snuffed out by state violence. These include attacks against active militants involved in the struggle for liberation of oppressed peoples like Mumia Abu-Jamal, Maroon Shoatz and Leonard Peltier, as well as everyday people of color and undocumented migrants struggling to survive against the racist class divisions perpetuated by capitalism. There have been 239 people killed by the NYPD since Amadou Diallo in 1999, and 107 since Sean Bell in 2010; nearly all of them have been people of color. While we see that Cecily is a political prisoner, we recognize that the black and brown men and women who are systematically beaten on the street and thrown into prisons are political by default. Having historically been the most exploited of the exploited class, their well-being, survival and resistance to the widening gap between classes poses a threat to the capitalist status quo that the state seeks to insure.

Anarchism and the philosophy of pragmatism can add to each other. Pragmatism is explained as a philosophy of active experience and experimental naturalism. Pragmatism advocates radical, decentrlized democracy and industrial self-management, which is very close to anarchism. However pragmatists have often opposed reformist perspectives to revolution. The case for revolution is presented.

On Friday March 14, two dozen union members and supporters rallied in front of the Boston location of Insomnia Cookies, demanding the reinstatement with back pay of union organizer and bicycle delivery “driver,” Tasia Edmonds. On March 9 the company suspended Edmonds without pay for a month, alleging insubordination, while the union maintains she was disciplined for her union-building efforts.

This is an interesting interview with our comrade Miriam (M1 Detroit) on her history of “Industrialization” with her organization at the time the Revolutionary Socialist League. “Industrialization” was the term that the Left used to describe the strategy of getting mainly University and counter-culture youth activists to commit to point-of-production organizing in factories as part of the working-class. It was different than what is today known as “salting” – as “Industrialization” was not usually seen as a short-term stint around a specific campaign, but rather a long-term commitment to building a revolutionary presence in the class.

chile.jpg imageStruggling to Win - Anarchists Building Popular Power in Chile - NYC tour Jan 21 03:53 by Syndicalist 9 comments

Dates: Jan 21 - 25

Chile has a long history of working class struggle in shanty towns, factories, mines, community organizations, and schools. In the 20 years after the US supported coup which overthrew Salvador Allende’s government, much of the organizing was done underground. However after the fall of the dictatorship in 1990, there was a new rise of mass popular organization in the country. Anarchists have been a major force in the social movements, strategically organizing to build power. This has manifested in solidarity for the Mapuches, anarchists winning the student union elections at the University of Chile, militant pro-abortion actions, and libertarian labor organizations.

This national tour brings three individuals involved in these struggles to talk about the lessons learned and to create solidarity across hemispheres. From January to the end of February, the speakers will be traveling throughout the country and we hope that you can spread the word and hear about the important work that is happening in Chile.

This essay is slightly expanded from one which was rejected by a US anarchist magazine for political reasons. It deals with a disagreement among activists: Should we propose that the movement raise a program of demands? I think that anarchists should, but with a more libertarian-democratic version than the liberals and state socialists. The essay is followed by a response to the political points raised by the editors of the anarchist journal.

Vikki Law imageSobre las mujeres en el sistema penitenciario en Estados Unidos Dec 04 22:57 by Brenda Aguilar 0 comments

Victoria Law es una fotógrafa, escritora y activista y madre. Involucrada en la lucha anticarcelaria desde 1996 coadyuvando en el éxito de iniciativas como Books Through Bars-New York City (Libros a través de las rejas-NY) un grupo que manda gratuitamente libros a presxs a nivel nacional en los Estados Unidos.

Desde el 2000, empezó a concentrarse en las necesidades que la lucha de las mujeres en prisiones requería, coeditando libros como Tenacious: Art and Writings in Prison (Tenaz: Arte y escritura en las prisiones) y facilitando que la escritura de mujeres encarceladas pueda ser leída fuera de las rejas, entre otros proyectos editoriales del mismo tipo. También publicó un libro titulado Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women (Resistencia tras las rejas: las luchas de las mujeres encarceladas, PM Press, 2009) y ganó el Premio PASS el 2009 (Prevention for a Safer Society, Prevención para una sociedad más Segura) otorgadio por el Consejo Nacional del Crimen y la Delincuencia.

En 1995 se involucró con ABC No Rio, un colectivo que administra un centro cultura en la parte sur del lado Este de Manhattan. Organizó, también, un grupo de fotógrafos activistas dentro de este mismo espacio, y desde entonces mantiene y coordina diferentes proyectos comunitarios destinados a jóvenes (exhibiciones, clases, etc).

En el 2003 colaboró con China Martens y crearon "Don't Leave Your Friends Behind," (No dejes a tu amigxs atrás), un taller que abordó las necesidades específicas de padres, madres y niñxs en los movimientos sociales radicales. Esta es una pequeña introducción de Victoria, que seguramente al resumir no hace justicia a la importante labor a la que ha estado dedicada. Regeneración Radio tuvo la oportunidad de entablar una pequeña charla que reproducimos a continuación.

huelga2p.jpg imagePower to the People, Not Politicians! Nov 05 01:33 by Minnesota Local Collective 0 comments

Campaigns teach by more than what is in their written programs. Even if the campaign was more explicitly radical, functionally it is teaching people that social change comes about through electing better politicians. The campaign has all the features of a mainstream election effort – adoration of a single personality, exaggeration of his “leadership”, meaningless pledges to “get results for you”. This is an elitist approach that reinforces the passivity of people by making someone else the “leader” who gets things done, instead of arguing for all of us to take control over our own lives. The activists and community members who have dived into the Ty Moore campaign are not prioritizing organizing one-on-ones to plan direct actions at work, at school, or in their neighborhoods, or discussing and debating how to replace the racist police with community militias or how narrow gender-roles stifle our humanity or how to build rank & file power against the union bureaucracy. They are rallying around “our guy” and training people to fundraise and to get out the vote. This is the main lesson that participants in the campaign are gaining: How to participate in this unjust system.
