Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation has received word about the white supremacist, fascist violence committed in Charlottesville today. We are deeply saddened by the loss of our comrade in struggle. Our hearts and minds go out to their loved ones.

We stand in solidarity with anti-racist activists in Charlottesville today, their families, the IWW and DSA members present, and all those involved in the struggle against the rising tide of fascism worldwide.

The labour movement has been unable to de-link itself from its archenemy: capital. As its structures bureaucratise, as its leaders become career unionists, as it opens investment companies and pays staff increasingly inequitable salaries, it increasingly mirrors the very thing it is fighting. If the South African Federation of Trade Unions is to meet its promise, it must be fundamentally different from the organisation it was born out of.

A federation will not liberate the class, nor will its affiliates; only the working class can liberate itself and it will never be able to do that as long as there is an implicit belief in a Great Leader/s; as long as the union is seen as a legal service and as long as power and money are centralised. A truly participatory, democratic trade union would be one where the locals/branches of each affiliate control the membership dues collected, where they would use their dues to do work on the ground and put some aside for provincial and national work; where the workers have direct ownership of the means of trade union production (negotiation, representation, mobilisation) and where the extremely loosely used term, democracy, translates into individual worker agency and empowerment to ensure that the base, the majority, the working class, is where true power lies, and that it uses its power to change the world for the benefit of the many.

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".

The struggle of the black working class majority of Freedom Park, South Africa, is not just for land on which to build housing – although that is obviously a central issue and key demand; nor is it just against the accompanying political and police violence and intimidation. It is a struggle against the injustice, violence and corruption of a system that puts the power, privileges and profits of a few before the lives and wellbeing of the majority.

Corte de rua e barricada no estado do Paraná.

O Brasil vive um terremoto político, escancarando a podridão das elites do país e fragilizando ainda mais os laços que as sustentam no poder. A operação orquestrada que possibilitou a gravação entre o presidente Michel Temer e o dono da JBS, maior empresa de carnes do mundo, altera a correlação de forças no país e joga gasolina na crise política e social. Com a instabilidade política, o governo tem mais dificuldade para mobilizar sua base e avançar com as Reformas da Previdência e Trabalhista, os maiores ataques à classe oprimida.

Isso não é motivo para se comemorar, não devemos tirar peso destas lutas. Agora é a hora de partir pra cima, massificar as mobilizações com o trancamento das ruas, paralisações rumo à greve geral para barrar os cortes sociais e as reformas. Devemos aprofundar a democracia, mas a democracia direta, onde as/os trabalhadoras/es nos seus locais de trabalho, estudo e moradia decidam o rumo do país. O momento é desfavorável para nós oprimidos e oprimidas, mas a crise e a disputa entre as elites abrem margem para outros projetos.

Εν’ όψει των εκλογών, προτάσσουμε την όσο πιο ευρεία αποχή. Γιατί οι λύσεις στα φλέγοντα ζητήματα που αφορούν τις ζωές μας, δεν βρίσκονται στα ψηφοδέλτια. Τις πραγματικές διεξόδους θα τις βρούμε στους συλλογικούς αγώνες, στις μικρές και μεγάλες μάχες. Καμία νομιμοποίηση στους κομματικούς δυνάστες, καμία ψήφο στους εκφραστές της κρατικής και καπιταλιστικής βαρβαρότητας, ότι χρώμα και ότι προσωπείο και αν έχουν. Η συμμετοχή στις εκλογές δεν είναι συμμετοχή στα “κοινά”. Είναι ανάθεση των υποθέσεων μας, είναι συναίνεση στα σχέδια υποβάθμισης των ζωών μας.

El Grupo Libertario Vía Libre es una organización política anarquista de la ciudad de Bogotá,Colombia que desde sus inicios se ha definido como una agrupación feminista comprometida con la lucha contra el heteropatriarcado y por la liberación de las mujeres y las disidencias sexuales. En los últimos años, positivamente influidas por el crecimiento del movimiento feminista, hemos apostado por reforzar la construcción y el desarrollo de una política de género, con líneas de trabajo interno y externo, que nos permitan hacerle frente al sexismo, las prácticas machistas y las violencias de género que se reproducen en la sociedad, los movimientos sociales y nuestra propia organización. Así, y como parte del proceso de construcción de dicha política, hemos decidido abordar y tramitar colectivamente casos de prácticas machistas y violencias de género que, lamentablemente, se han presentado en nuestro grupo.

A partir de lo anterior, y como parte de las respuestas que definimos para tratar los casos abordados, hemos decidido escribir este comunicado con el fin de hacer visibles las prácticas y violencias que fueron perpetradas por hombres que hacían parte de nuestra organización y presentar los procesos que se adelantaron en cada uno de estos casos. Además, esbozamos los ejercicios críticos y autocríticos que hemos hecho, así como los aprendizajes y retos que han surgido al hacerle frente, desde lo colectivo, a estas prácticas y violencias machistas.

copertina libro imageLibro: a las barricadas, testimonianze anarchiche e antifasciste internazionali Jun 17 17:15 by leo 0 comments

Questo volume ci offre un capitolo piuttosto sconosciuto nel mondo libertario italiano: il ruolo dei volontari anarchici di madre lingua tedesca durante la guerra civile spagnola 1936-39.
Molto spazio viene dedicato alla rivoluzione libertaria e sociale con numerosi contributi sulla collettivizzazione. Inoltre giornalisti, scrittori e fotoreporter raccontano la rivoluzione culturale ed artistica nonché la campagna dell’alfabetizzazione. Ci siamo messi anche sulle tracce di anarchici tedeschi in esilio che sono andati in spagna in aiuto della repubblica (e avevo descritto nel mio saggio precedente: "Contro Hitler-gli anarchici e la resistenza tedesca dimenticata").

Con una dozzina di testimonianze dirette i volontari anarchici e della sinistra rivoluzionaria ci accompagnano al fronte, nelle giornate sanguinose del maggio 1937 di Barcellona, nella repressione comunista e nelle prigioni staliniane in Spagna, di nuovo in esilio, nei campi in Francia e nei campi di concentramento tedeschi.

Alternative Libertaire fue creada en 1991, hace 28 años. En 28 años, hemos luchado, mucho, hemos debatido, construido ideas, prácticas y una organización. Esta organización, la queríamos siempre más abierta, accesible, dirigida a todo el proletariado. Esta organización era una herramienta que, en nuestra opinión, fue útil durante estas tres décadas difíciles de luchas sociales.

Cette organisation était un outil, qui fut nous le pensons utile pendant ces trois difficiles décennies de luttes sociales.

Nathaniel Clavijo es militante de fAu (Federación Anarquista uruguaya). En esta entrevista hablamos de la condición “especifista” de su organización. De las características de ese “partido” anarquista no electoral y de las diferencias metodológicas con los partidos de ideología marxista. Desde ese lugar tan particular reflexionó sobre la relación entre los grupos políticos y las organizaciones sociales.

Podríamos gastar tinta y utilizar varios párrafos en describir lo que representa la figura de Alberto Fernández, tanto por sus orígenes (Menem, Cavallo, Duhalde) como por sus vinculaciones (Papel Prensa, Clarín, Repsol, Embajada Norteamericana). Sin embargo, nuestra línea de análisis intenta ir por otro carril que no es el de la denuncia o el vuelo intelectual. Para ello debemos recaer en los abrumadores números vertidos en el último número de nuestra prensa: 260 mil despidos el último año, índices records de desocupación y pobreza, y una pérdida de más 15 puntos del salario con respecto a la inflación. Luego de 3 años y medio de ajuste brutal, el inicio de un año difícil para los y las de abajo generó hasta aquí presión en las calles, a través de sucesivas medidas sectoriales y unitarias, cuyo desenlace expuso a la cúpula de la CGT, que no tuvo más salida que convocar a un Paro General el 29 de mayo.

Don't abandon the unions, or take sides in inter-union rivalries. Build a serious, organised, non-sectarian project of democratic reform and political discussion that spans the unions, including a rank-and-file movement that fosters debate, and opens the treasure-chest of union and left history and theory. Recover the politics of disconnecting from the state as raised by, for example, Occupy and the Rojava Revolution. Replace reliance on the state and parties with struggle, and destructive inter-union rivalry with a serious project of working class counter-power.

What is required is a movement that knows the police are the attack dogs of the enemy and they are to be resisted with all the strength and intelligence we can muster. We need a movement that wants to #StopAdani directly, a movement that will create facts on the ground that the Government cannot ignore. And this movement, in challenging the State, will inevitably look beyond it, to a new society with no State and no cops, and where capitalism is no more.

On 18 May, enrolled voters in Australia will decide which members of the capitalist class will represent us in Parliament and crush us in government for the next three years. This election occurs at a time when the world has been informed that it has, at most, until 2030 to take effective action to stop and begin reversing climate change, or risk crossing tipping points into runaway temperature rises that would kill billions and endanger industrial civilisation. So you’d think the major players would be presenting plans to fix it. But no, this is Australian capitalist democracy and we get something different.

textPoder e Governação May 17 02:58 by Pedro Wandelli Góis 0 comments

Ao longo deste ensaio, desenvolverei o conceito de “Sistemas de Poder” ou “Sistemas Políticos” como ideologia política, sujeito imaterial e indivisível nas relações sociais. A partir da compreensão deste conceito, situarei os quatro Modelos de Governação existentes na história política da humanidade. Os Modelos de Governação podem ter maior ou menor impacto nos governos ao longo da História, tendo em vista as suas próprias necessidades de buscar, em outros Modelos de Governação, soluções inexistentes em si para as demandas e necessidades específicas de cada sociedade, em cada época distinta.

The MACG thus defends Julian Assange, not because of his politics, which have curdled and are now quite suspect, nor because we consider him innocent of the Swedish accusations. The US ruling class has no objection to his politics, because they are riddled with the sort of people with whom he has been collaborating. And neither do they have any objection to sexual assault – if they did, Donald Trump would not be President. The United States wants to punish him, not for any crimes he might have committed, but for his good deeds. The MACG defend Assange for those same good deeds.
