A video went viral on social media platforms on October 3, outlining how the notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigerian police force shot a young man, dumped him at the side of the road and stole his car. What followed was three weeks of protests by young people against such police brutality and the corruption that defines the state; initially via social media, #EndSARS, and later in towns and cities across Nigeria. During these protests the Nigerian state used various tactics to either suppress the protests or to try and demobilise them through insincere “concessions”. To begin with, the ruling class, the state it controls and its head, President Muhammadu Buhari, attempted to quell the protests through window dressing. Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu promised on October 11 that the SARS unit would be disbanded and supposedly replaced with a new unit called SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics). This was an obvious lie, as the same personnel that formed part of SARS would form part of SWAT. Over the last several years the government has made similar announcements resulting in no actual change. Needless to say, the protests continued and grew into the largest in the history of Nigeria. As the protests grew, the state changed tactics and responded to the escalation with outright violence. Part of this involved the state deploying thugs to attack protestors in order to try and intimidate people off the streets. When this failed to produce the state’s desired result, it deployed the military and implemented a curfew in a number of cities. By October 20, however, the protests had spread across Nigeria. Some of the assets of the Nigerian ruling class were also targeted during these protests and the largest and most lucrative toll road in country, Lekki, in Lagos, was blockaded. On that day the military attempted to brutally end the protests and shot dead 12 people at the Lekki tollgate. read full story / add a comment

This position paper from the anti-State communist collective Unity & Struggle was drafted before Trump caught coronavirus. We share it here as a good piece to illustrate the state of mind of our comrades fighting on the so-called United States of America's territory. We hope it encourages revolutionaries in the U.S. and everywhere else to debate what we can expect in November, and begin making plans, as what happens there obviously has an influence worldwide. read full story / add a comment

Κοινή διεθνιστική ανακοίνωση αλληλεγγύης στους 51 αντιφασίστες και αντιφασίστριες που συνελήφθησαν στη Θεσσαλονίκη στις 16/9/2020.

Το βράδυ της Τετάρτης 16/9/2020 αντιφασίστες σύντροφοι και αντιφασίστες συντρόφισσες πραγματοποίησαν αντιφασιστική παρέμβαση στη Νέα Παραλία Θεσσαλονίκης στην Ελλάδα. Οι σύντροφοι και οι συντρόφισσες έσβησαν φασιστικά συνθήματα που είχαν γραφτεί μερικές μέρες πριν από τους νεοναζί του νέου κόμματος που σχημάτισε ο πρώην βουλευτής της Χρυσής Αυγής Ηλίας Κασιδιάρης, Έλληνες για την Πατρίδα, αλλά και από τοπικές ομάδες φασιστών. Αντιφασιστικά συνθήματα γέμισαν ακολούθως την περιοχή της Νέας Παραλίας. Περίπου στις 22:30 οι αντιφασίστες και αντιφασίστριες περικυκλώθηκαν από ισχυρές αστυνομικές δυνάμεις που επέβαιναν σε μηχανές, αλλά και από διμοιρίες ΜΑΤ, οι οποίες τους επιτέθηκαν απρόκλητα. 51 σύντροφοι και συντρόφισσες που συμμετείχαν στην αντιφασιστική παρέμβαση συνελήφθησαν και οδηγήθηκαν στη Γενική Αστυνομική Διεύθυνση Θεσσαλονίκης, όπου κρατήθηκαν υπό άθλιες συνθήκες για 2-4 μέρες. read full story / add a comment

As Anarchists, we argue for workers’ revolution across the world and take as our primary duty the fight against the capitalists where we live. Here in Australia, we must fight against the Australian Goverment’s military alliance with the US, including the ANZUS Treaty, the 5 Eyes intelligence group and the spy base at Pine Gap. And we must fight to build a labour movement that can link up with the working class across the region to make revolution against both the capitalists and the Chinese so-called “Communist” Party. There is no other way. read full story / add a comment

International statement from various anarchist organizations - some being members of the Anarkismo network - about the situation of women in this global health crisis of capitalism.

"We, women, endure the social and economic global crisis which unfolded as the novel coronavirus emerged and evolved into a pandemic, and yet we suffer from sexist violence too. This is not a novelty in the system of patriarchal domination we live under, nevertheless, it has adopted particular new forms in our actual context. We have found the COVID-19 pandemic has relegated us more and more to the "domestic sphere" and has subordinated us more and more to the masculine figure."

We repudiate the cowardly murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis’s police officers, another racist act in the heart of a world imperialist power. This event is added to the countless number of killings of people of colour and the Afro-descendent population in the United States which has been perpetuated since the days of slavery and hasn’t yet stopped. Racism, a structural element in capitalist society, especially in North American capitalism, is unfortunately intact, but resistance and fighting spirit from people of color and poor people arises in response. Only solidarity and mutual aid will allow us to resist.

“El primero de Mayo debe ser un símbolo de solidaridad internacional, de solidaridad no limitada a los marcos del estado nacional que siempre corresponde a los intereses de las minorías privilegiadas del país. Entre los millones de trabajadores que soportan el yugo de la esclavitud, existe una unidad de intereses, independientemente del idioma que hablen y el estandarte bajo el cual nacieron. Pero entre los/as explotadores/as y los/as explotados/as del mismo país, hay una guerra ininterrumpida que no puede ser resuelta por ningún principio de autoridad y que tiene sus raíces en los intereses contradictorios de las diversas clases. Todo nacionalismo es un disfraz ideológico de los hechos verdaderos: puede en un momento dado arrastrar a las grandes masas a sus representantes mentirosos, pero nunca ha sido capaz de abolir la brutal realidad de las cosas de este mundo.” ( Rudolf Rocker, 1936) read full story / add a comment

Diante do cenário atual (e, vale dizer, um cenário que traz condições de vida e existência até então inimagináveis para boa parte de nós), não podemos nos furtar a debater como as mulheres que compõem os setores da sociedade mais vulneráveis têm sentido de maneira muito mais violenta as restrições impostas por este contexto de pandemia. As desigualdades sociais, as opressões fundantes do Estado brasileiro e as violações constantemente deflagradas contra o povo têm historicamente repercutido de maneira peculiar sobre as mulheres. Afinal, são elas que compõem de maneira significativa a base da pirâmide da exploração da força de trabalho; são elas que detêm os menores salários; são elas que representam na grande maioria o corpo de trabalhadoras domésticas; são elas que estão no lugar de chefes de família onde o genitor não só não se faz presente como também abandona financeiramente e emocionalmente a mulher e seus filhos e filhas; são elas que estão em maioria na linha de frente nos primeiros contatos ocorridos ao se chegar nos serviços de saúde; são também elas as que mais correm o risco de morrer em isolamento domiciliar, pois compartilham na residência o espaço com um parceiro agressor, consequência cruel das estruturas machistas nas quais somos criadas/os.

Além dessas realidades, ainda temos a miséria, o desemprego, a desesperança e tantas condições de vidas adversas às recomendações para se proteger da contaminação com o COVID-19. Os bolsões de pobreza do Brasil são muitos. A falta de água é realidade de muitas casas. O isolamento (tão recomendado pelas autoridades sanitárias) é algo impossível para muitas destas trabalhadoras, particularmente, as que exercem a função de empregada doméstica. Não à toa, vimos recentemente a notícia de uma empregada doméstica que faleceu após continuar indo trabalhar na casa dos seus patrões que estavam de quarentena. Há que se destacar: dá pra adivinhar a cor e a classe desta empregada vítima dos privilégios destes patrões? A crise da pandemia tem cor, genêro e classe! Nós devemos exigir que os nossos direitos sejam respeitados e devemos continuar na luta por uma vida digna!

É neste sentido que nós mulheres da Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira publicamos este texto reflexão que se propõe a apresentar nossa concepção de feminismo. A nossa luta é por uma sociedade liberta de todo tipo opressão e exploração. Por isso, não aceitamos de forma alguma fechar os olhos ou abrandar, mesmo no contexto de pandemia, nossas análises, apontando para a luta contra o racismo, contra o machismo e o patriarcado, contra o Estado e seu projeto genocida e contra o Capital em sua lógica de morte ao povo e proteção aos patrões. Que nossos debates não parem, assim como nossa luta e resistência seguem dia a dia! Pelo poder popular! Mulheres são resistência na luta por vida digna!

El 2020 se inicia con algunas modificaciones a nivel de la región pero sobre todo con la continuidad de la inmensa movilización del pueblo chileno, esa revuelta popular que lleva ya bastante más de 100 días, ha modificado la situación social y política de dicho país, pero también de la región. Abre un nuevo escenario y se inscribe, como decíamos en anteriores análisis, en la oleada de movilizaciones que vienen desplegando los pueblos latinoamericanos (Haití, Ecuador y en otros países con menor intensidad). Son tiempos de pueblos en la calle, son tiempos de lucha.

Al mismo tiempo, empieza en el mundo una crisis económica que se profundiza con el coronavirus y su impacto en los mercados internacionales. La cuestión del petróleo y sus efectos en las economías periféricas de Latinoamérica también pueden impactar en el costo de vida y la legitimidad de la tecnocracia ultraliberal que sigue como parte de esta nueva fase en nuestro continente.

Pero también, la pandemia del coronavirus trae una serie de cambios en esta etapa que es difícil y prematuro estimar su calado. Sin embargo, su impacto nos obliga a hablar de una situación nueva, una etapa global que está cambiando con una política de control de grandes poblaciones y aumento de medidas represivas, donde se hacen evidentes además los estragos ocasionados por más de tres décadas de neoliberalismo con el desmantelamiento de la salud pública y la seguridad social.

Dividiremos este análisis de coyuntura en dos secciones: una primera abordando la movilización en Chile y los cambios políticos y sociales en el continente y una segunda con un análisis primario acerca de la nueva coyuntura desatada a partir de la expansión del Covid-19.

Selbstorganisierte Gruppen bauen solidarische Strukturen im Kampf gegen das Coronavirus auf

Binnen kurzem hat das Coronavirus das Leben, wie wir es kennen, völlig verändert. Im Stundentakt erreichen uns neue Meldungen über Dinge, die wir gestern noch für unmöglich gehalten hätten. Die Unsicherheit ist groß in diesen Zeiten: Keine*r weiß, ob die ergriffenen Maßnahmen die Ausbreitung der Krankheit eindämmen werden, keine*r weiß, was uns als nächstes erwartet. Die folgenden Zeilen sind daher nur ein erster Versuch, einige Aspekte des gegenwärtigen Zustandes zu benennen und Perspektiven zu skizzieren, worauf es in den kommenden Wochen und Monaten ankommen könnte. read full story / add a comment

The relationship between the US and Iran has never been good after the Iranian “revolution” but since the “Arab Spring” it has gotten worse. The involvement of Iran in many countries in the Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, made it difficult for the US to achieve its own aims in the region. This article covers what happened in Iraq currently and how the tension between the US and Iran reached a high level before the assassination of General Suleimani.

Tensión en el territorio chileno, las movilizaciones más masivas desde el retorno a la democracia, y tal vez de la historia desafían al supuesto oasis del neoliberalismo construidos en estos 46 años posterior al golpe de Estado, con una dictadura que derrocó el proyecto de la Unidad Popular y maduró un modelo económico neoliberal, sin duda un oasis para el empresariado transnacional. La crisis fundante que hace eco en cada demanda levantada por el pueblo chileno, es ese modelo construido en dictadura donde la extrema codicia de la clase dominante, que bajo el amparo de una constitución fundada para implementar “El saqueo de Chile”, no tuvo escrúpulos en robar absolutamente todo. read full story / add a comment

Després de dies de filtracions poc innocents, aquest matí s’ha fet pública la sentència del Tribunal Suprem contra 12 polítics catalans pels fets del voltant de l’1 d’octubre de 2017. En ella es condemna per sedició a les encausades que des de fa més d’un any i mig estan empresonades a penes que van de 9 a 13 anys de presó. Un cop coneguda la sentència constatem que s’ha escrit una nova pàgina en el rearmament repressiu i punitiu de l’estat, ja que obre la porta a tipificar amb el delicte de sedició reunions i manifestacions incòmodes a l’Estat i al govern de torn. read full story / add a comment
