Féminism is worthless without intersectionnality and inclusion

Alors que le mois de novembre a vu se libérer la parole de nombreuses femmes contre les agressions, le harcèlement et autres violences patriarcales, nous relayons ici le communiqué de la Coordination des Groupes Anarchistes à ce propos, à l'occasion de la journée mondiale pour l'élimination de la violence contre les femmes (25 novembre).

This article looks at the recent events around the removal of Robert Mugabe from power in Zimbabwe. It argues that this will not bring liberation for the people of Zimbabwe, as it does not address the problems Zimbabwe faces – a ruthless ruling class, its state, capitalism and imperialism.

Robert Mugabe, the longstanding authoritarian ruler that has waged a war against Zimbabwe’s poor, is gone. He was forced to resign in the wake of a coup – although the main actors in the coup comically denied it was one.

When it was announced that Mugabe was exiting power, tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Harare to celebrate. Many are hoping that his exit will bring change for the better for Zimbabwe. This hope, unfortunately, may be wishful thinking. The reason for this is that Mugabe was a symptom of far deeper problems, and without addressing those problems, Zimbabwe cannot be free; nor can there be genuine equality. Similarly, those that removed Mugabe are cut from the same cloth, and come from the same ruthless ruling class.

Against normalization and repression: Struggle and organize !

We learnt that on October 25th, a large police operation called « Erebus » (Érebo in Portuguese, i.e. the name of the Greek god of darkness) was launched against the anti-authoritarian movement.

The civil police invaded at least 4 libertarian premises and claims to have warrants against a dozen of premises and about 30 people. They raided the occupation Pandorga and the Parrhesia premises as well as the political and cultural space Ateneu Libertário Batalha da Várzea that used to be FAG’s official premises. The Federação Anarquista Gaúcha (FAG) is specifically targeted by this operation as it is considered by the stupid-as-usual police to be the top organization of the anarchist movement in Porto Alegre. They are accused of forming a gang in order to commit crimes against public and private possessions.

Nota de la Federación Anarquista de Rosário sobre la reaparición sin vida del compañero Santiago Maldonado

[English] [Português] [Français] [Italiano]

¡SANTIAGO MALDONADO PRESENTE!

En estos últimos días se cumplieron 3 años de la aparición del cuerpo de Luciano Arruga, 7 años del asesinato de Mariano Ferreira y hoy 20 de octubre se confirma lo que todos/as intuíamos el cuerpo encontrado, río arriba, es de Santiago Maldonado.
Un joven de barrio desaparece por no querer robar para la policía, uno muere a manos de una patota por luchar contra la precarización laboral, y otro es desaparecido por luchar por la autonomía del pueblo mapuche. En todos ellos hay elementos en común, la represión del estado apunta a aquellos que resultan peligrosos por ser parte de una juventud que no se somete, que no agacha la cabeza y que no asume los mandatos del sistema. Contra la represión en los barrios, contra la precarización laboral y por la autodeterminación de los pueblos, por todas esas reivindicaciones tan urgentes seguiremos luchando.

El estado mostró su cara más terrible y voraz, el mecanismo de la desaparición forzada es una metodología que las clases dominantes sostienen, con sus particularidades, en las distintas coyunturas. Y aparecen también las operaciones mediáticas, desesperadas por instalar en la sociedad un discurso que desmovilice, y busque en los de abajo la responsabilidad de lo que viene sucediendo.
Aun así, no han podido frenar las gigantescas movilizaciones populares de variados sectores en todo este tiempo, y temen por la magnitud del hastío y la indignación de nuestro pueblo, que ante semejante ofensa a su dignidad, se manifestará más temprano que tarde en las calles de todo el país.

¡EL QUE MURIÓ PELEANDO VIVE EN CADA COMPAÑERO!
¡SANTIAGO MALDONADO PRESENTE!

El 19 de julio de 1979 (43 años después del inicio de la Revolución Española contra el golpe de Estado de Franco) triunfaba en Nicaragua una revolución de claro contenido popular. Se ponía fin así a la dictadura de 46 años de la familia Somoza, dueños de Nicaragua y personeros de Estados Unidos. Desde 1855, con la invasión del “filibustero” Walker, Nicaragua ha sido un enclave norteamericano, una especie de semi-colonia, un país “libre” e “independiente” sólo formalmente, donde el control de Estados Unidos era total en todas las actividades nicaragüenses.

La gesta de Sandino con su “Ejército Rebelde”, cuyo principal objetivo era expulsar a los marines norteamericanos puso en jaque dicha presencia entre 1926 y 1933. El asesinato de Sandino a manos de Anastasio Somoza, en una verdadera emboscada, a traición, derrota al Ejército Rebelde y triunfa la reacción más asquerosa y vil al servicio del imperialismo norteamericano.

Sin embargo, el pueblo nicaragüense continuó resistiendo. Con pequeñas acciones, incluso asesinando a Somoza, pero sin poder evitar que se entronara en dinastía su familia. Los Somoza eran dueños de media Nicaragua, literalmente. El resto del país estaba en manos de una lánguida burguesía y de los intereses yanquis. La Iglesia, siempre fiel aliada a los Somoza y al status quo.

La Resistencia Popular se fue encauzando hacia pequeñas guerrillas, hasta que en 1961 se forma el Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, bajo el influjo de la Revolución Cubana, y con una perspectiva de desalojar a la dictadura de Somoza, independizar definitivamente al país y abrir un tránsito propio hacia el Socialismo. La incidencia del FSLN crecía a nivel popular: entre los estudiantes de la Universidad -donde fueron reclutados muchos de sus militantes- , organizando barriadas, a los campesinos y diversos sectores sociales.

Así se llega luego de un largo trecho de combates, donde el FSLN gana una inmensa legitimidad entre sectores del pueblo, a derrotar definitivamente a la dictadura. Se iniciaba un nuevo período en la vida del país, donde se instalaban cooperativas de campesinos, experiencias donde convivían la propiedad colectiva con la pequeña propiedad privada, se organizaban y fortalecían sindicatos y demás organizaciones populares…

boiketlong4.jpg image[South Africa] Renewed appeal for Solidarity with the Boiketlong 4 Aug 15 07:09 by Solidarity with the Boiketlong 4 0 comments

On the 21st April 2015 the Magistrates Court in Sebokeng sentenced 4 community activists from Boiketlong, to a total of 16 years in prison. The activists are: Dinah Makhetha, Sipho Mangane, Dan Molefe and Pulane Mahlangu. Key witnesses could not even identify the 4 but the courts sought to use the apartheid law of ‘doctrine of common purpose’ to jail them. They were found not guilty of ‘public violence’ but guilty of ‘assault, arson and malicious damage to property’.

Pulane Mahlangu has run away and no one knows where she is or if she is in good health. Either way, she cannot come home.

Dan Molefe died of stress-related illness in December 2017.

Although released for a short period while the appeal process was underway, both Dinah and Sipho are back in prison as they lost the first level of Appeal. The magistrate is prepared to consider shortening the sentence but not the sentence itself. The appeal process remains underway.

There is now an opportunity for a mediated process that may assist in a process of early release. There is an urgent need to cover the costs of mediation which we estimate could come to about R40 000. Appeals have been made to the community to raise funds as well to the broader movement.

argentina_2_copy.jpg imageWorkers’ power not bureaucrats’ power: lessons from Argentina Aug 15 02:55 by Jonathan Payn 0 comments

Around the world the ruling class (capitalists, politicians and state managers) is trying to restore its profits by making the working class pay for the economic crisis. One way capitalists do this is by retrenching workers and making the remaining workers work harder to meet production targets, as well as by attacking wages, working conditions and benefits. States help capitalists do this, among other things, by increasing interest rates while giving corporations tax cuts, commercialising and privatising state owned enterprises and outsourcing the provision of basic services. States also help capitalists by undermining workers’ rights, such as the right to strike, in order to make it more difficult for workers to resist these attacks.

Unions have failed to defend workers from the immediate threat of these attacks (by preventing dismissals and defending jobs, wages and conditions), as well as to mount an effective resistance that can prevent further attacks and begin to roll back the devastating effects of neoliberalism. Moreover, union bureaucrats are often complicit in these attacks through deals they make with governments and bosses. A recent example in South Africa is the National Minimum Wage and amendments to the Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Labour Relations Amendment Bill – all of which represent an attack on workers yet were agreed to at Nedlac (the National Economic Development and Labour Council) by the leaders of the three main federations: Nactu, Fedusa and Cosatu.

Faced with this ruling class threat and with union bureaucracies that are either complicit or unwilling to fight, workers in Argentina have begun a process to build unity in struggle and a democratic worker-controlled alternative.

Racism has been a curse in South Africa, and remains embedded in the society. But how scientific are racist ideas? Where do they come from? And how can we fight racism and create a truly equal and fair society? What do we as revolutionary anarchists think?

Racial conflict, inequality, and hatred are not natural, but fed and reared by capitalism and the state. To really change the system, we need a massive programme of upgrading education, health, housing and services; an end to the racist heap labour system; a challenge to the ideological control that splits the working class; and a radical redistribution of wealth and power to the working class and poor –which in South Africa, means primarily the black working class and poor –as part of a social revolution.

Casas derruidas, calles abarrotadas de escombros y suciedad, esquinas vigiladas por quienes hace poco tiempo le juraban lealtad a Abu Bark Al Baghdadi -el misterioso líder del Estado Islámico (ISIS)-, y una población diezmada que si no huyó ahora vive bajo un sistema de terror custodiado por el ejército turco. Hogares y negocios saqueados, secuestros masivos de hombres y mujeres, muertes en cualquier momento del día, y un plan sistemático de reemplazo poblacional como pocas veces se vio en el siglo XXI. Estas postales desgarradoras forman parte de la realidad de Afrin, la región kurda del norte de Siria que fue invadida por Turquía en marzo de este año, causando la muerte de más de doscientas personas por los bombardeos aéreos que duraron dos meses y el desplazamiento de más de 150 mil habitantes que se refugiaron, en su mayoría, en la región de Shebha.

O autointitulado “Centro Democrático” seria a continuidade do Centrão da Constituinte, décadas após veio a ser chamado de Blocão na Era Cunha e retornando ao nome de Centrão no Brasil pós-golpe. Se formos avaliar a condição da aliança, além de razoável consonância programática – que difere pouco ou nada das ideias manifestas sem definir um programa fechado com Jair Bolsonaro – significa uma chance real de disputar parcelas de poder, tanto na União como nos estados.

In order to understand government politics, it is necessary to have a theory of the state.

These need to be integrated into a class theory of the state.

p_01_02_2017.jpeg imageA spectre is haunting us: it’s the past weighing like a nightmare on the present Jul 26 02:39 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

The context we now exist in is one that is defined by glaring contradictions everywhere, its fractured, changing, unstable and confrontational. It is a time of despair, but also pockets of hope. On the one hand, a spectre is haunting us, but it is not the one that Marx spoke of. Rather an authoritarian and extreme right wing form of capitalism, last seen on extensive scale in the 1930s, is rearing its hideous ghost-like head. This right wing extremism has become an ‘acceptable’ form of politics amongst some people in the context of the unresolved capitalist crisis. It is the ‘solution’ amongst sections of ruling classes in many countries to a crisis that is not going away. As part of this, many states are passing laws attacking basic rights that oppressed classes have won through decades and even centuries of struggle (including in South Africa); states are beginning to bare their teeth more often rather than being in a position to rule by consent; toxic nationalisms based on exclusionary racial, ethnic and religious identities (including within sections of the population in South Africa) have once again become acceptable and even embraced by sections of the population (giving rise to the likes of Trump, Le Pen and Duterte and xenophobia and other ills in South Africa); and bigotry and hate are back. Yet there is also hope. In many parts of the world, sections of the working class have fought back. This has seen movements of protests in some parts, attempts to revive unions in others and in some cases the re-emergence of left political parties and projects. But it is also a restructured working class, a working class that is fundamentally different from even the 1970s. New or different forms of organising happen next to the old. It is thus also a working class in which the past weighs like a nightmare on the present in organisational terms; experimenting with the new and different ways of organising, but also falling back into the old.

A call for socialist Left unity is heard widely today in South Africa, but is usually taken as a call for unity of praxis (unity in theoretical programme and action). This is sometimes framed as transcending old divides (these seen as outdated, divisive or dismissed as dogmatic), and sometimes as unity in order to have action (rhetorically set up as the opposite of “arm chair” theory).

What do we as revolutionary anarchists think?
