The only way out is struggle. We, the working class, must organise in the teeth of all obstructions. We must build the unions that the officials manifestly can’t build by themselves. We must use our vital weapon, the strike, and if the officials won’t help, we must act without them. And we must build solidarity across borders, because only international solidarity can beat the power of global capital. Standing together, in defiance of nationalism, we will have built a movement that embodies the values of a new and better world, a movement which also has the power to create that world. We can make a revolution to overthrow capitalism and create libertarian communism, worldwide.

During the last 3 years in Greece, savage austerity imposed by the Troika (International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and European Commission) has crippled the country’s economy. The austerity has led to a depression that is as bad, if not worse, as the Great Depression was in the United States. Enjoying the atmosphere of anguish and despair associated with economic depression, Golden Dawn has flourished, espousing an ideology of hate.

It is in effect a Fascist party that promotes anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant and misogynist chauvinism and has grown to become the third most popular political party in the country. It is this threat which led the Greek government to arrest the party’s leadership and dozens of its followers after a Golden Dawn member fatally stabbed anti-fascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas in September last year. Some Golden Dawn members (including senior leaders) have also been charged by police with bashing defenceless individuals, whom Golden Dawn deemed to be enemies, for causing explosions and for blackmail. A police investigation that has been launched into the party, but has failed to produce clear results. Beyond their racist, bigoted ideology, Golden Dawn draws inspiration from the violent methods of the Nazi German regime of the last century.

Το National Plan to Transition Australia’s National COVID-19 Response (Εθνικό Σχέδιο αντιμετώπισης της COVID-19 στην Αυστραλία) είναι ένα σχέδιο καταστροφής. Η Ομοσπονδιακή Κυβέρνηση, μετά από εντολή των ισχυρότερων εγχώριων καπιταλιστών, σχεδιάζει να εγκαταλείψει τον αγώνα για την εξάλειψη της COVID19 και ακόμη να την επαναφέρει σε περιοχές της Αυστραλίας που τώρα δεν επηρεάζονται από αυτήν. Απορρίπτει ευγενικά τις όποιες ανησυχίες αναφερόμενη σε σχετική έρευνα του σεβαστού Doherty Institute (Ινστιτούτου Doherty).

The National Plan is that solution and the current outbreak in New South Wales is the wedge which the Federal Government is using to make it look inevitable. Unlikely as it might sound, Scott Morrison and Gladys Berejiklian don’t want to stop this wave. They just want it to move slowly, while the vaccination campaign is implemented.

This article was originally written at the request of our comrades in France, the Union Communiste Libertaire. A translation of this article into French will hopefully be published soon. It is intended to be a follow up to an article by the UCL entitled “1788 : Les générations volées de l’Australie coloniale”, which deals at length with the details of early colonisation and the Stolen Generation. As such, our article does not go into detail about these two things, and is directed more to a global audience instead of a domestic one that already knows about Indigenous struggles.

Στη θέση του καπιταλισμού και του κράτους θα βλέπαμε τον έλεγχο των εργαζομένων στους χώρους εργασίας, τον κοινοτικό έλεγχο στη στέγαση και έναν διεξοδικό εκδημοκρατισμό όλων των σφαιρών της ζωής. Η κοινωνία θα ελέγχεται συλλογικά από όλους και τα προς το ζην θα παρέχονται δωρεάν σε όλους.
Στη θέση μιας κοινωνίας που βασίζεται στην αποξένωση, την ανισότητα και την αδικία αναζητούμε ένα κοινωνικό σύστημα βασισμένο στην ελευθερία, την ισότητα και τη δημοκρατία, όπου ο στόχος της κοινωνίας είναι η πλήρης ανάπτυξη, η αυτοπραγμάτωση και η άνθηση όλων, παρά η ατελείωτη επέκταση του κέρδους.

safe_image.jpg imageA National Myth Apr 25 20:08 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The myth of Australia’s unique military has been deployed to boost support for Australian participation in all subsequent imperialist wars. The less justification there is for the war, the more the propaganda focuses on the supposed virtues of the troops rather than the justice of the cause. While the virtues of the Anzacs were part of the propaganda for World War II, they were more prominent during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and have become the dominant theme in reporting and discussion of Australia’s participation in the imperialist wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The LNP government has announced this week its planned changes to the JobSeeker payment in so-called Australia. After 27 years of no increases, they have decided to raise the dole from $40 a day all the way up to $43 a day. This leaves the payment far below the relative poverty line. The real concern with these changes is the increase to already draconian mutual obligations forced onto the unemployed.
As anarchists we understand that capitalism’s illusion of being consensual and contractual is a bald-face lie, so how then can we fight back against not just these changes but the entire rotten welfare system in this country?
There are already the usual calls of putting pressure onto the Labor Party who have shown time and time again they are no friends of those in poverty. We need to build popular power in the movements and build alliances.

The struggle for a new world has been a long one and has been contributed to by countless individuals and organisations in that time. While the path often seems long and sometimes hopeless we believe that a new world is not just possible, but necessary for our survival. We hope that with this new organisation we like so many before us can play a part in making this vision become reality.

In these circumstances, the military effort in Afghanistan quickly became an occupation. All Afghan civilians were the enemy, unless they were known tools of the occupiers. And so the fighting age males were deemed fair game. Imperialist war cannot be waged justly, so the political decisions of John Howard, Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard and other Prime Ministers made the crimes of the soldiers on the ground inevitable. The soldiers named in the secret version of the report deserve to be in the dock, but so do their political masters.

These universities are not alone. In fact, this struggle for our lives, for our freedom to dictate our destiny, is the struggle of every student, in every institution across the archipelago! All schools, colleges, and universities have their own versions of our very native concept of bayanihan, that entails a camaraderie and solidarity where no one will be left behind. It is in our values and in our history that we can learn what it takes to take our liberty now.

We ask that you resist and protest the return of Joseph Scott Pemberton to the United States. Do not allow Pemberton to forget the vile crime he committed. You must prevent Pemberton from committing harm again. This can include petitioning Pemberton's prospective universities and employers to not accept him on account of his violent past.

Ως αναρχικοί, υποστηρίζουμε την εργατική επανάσταση σε όλο τον κόσμο και αναλαμβάνουμε ως πρωταρχικό καθήκον μας την καταπολέμηση των καπιταλιστών όπου ζούμε. Εδώ στην Αυστραλία, πρέπει να πολεμήσουμε ενάντια στη στρατιωτική συμμαχία της Αυστραλιανής Κυβέρνησης με τις ΗΠΑ, συμπεριλαμβανομένης της Συνθήκης ANZUS, της ομάδας πληροφοριών 5 Eyes και της βάσης κατασκοπείας στο Pine Gap. Και πρέπει να αγωνιστούμε για να οικοδομήσουμε ένα εργατικό κίνημα που μπορεί να συνδεθεί με την εργατική τάξη σε ολόκληρη την περιοχή για να κάνει επανάσταση ενάντια τόσο στους καπιταλιστές όσο και στο κινεζικό λεγόμενο «Κομμουνιστικό» Κόμμα.

The Philippine government refuses to implement mass testing and competent contact tracing, two policies that have proven to be effective in other countries. Instead, the government prioritized increasing policing powers, surveillance and warrantless arrests with an “anti-terror” law that critics quickly labeled the “Terror Law.” The militarized nature of the quarantine in the Philippines is already a martial law in fact, which has only been further entrenched with the passing of the Terror Law.

The US-dominated world order can only be maintained by endless war. Australia, a junior partner, has signed up to this to maintain its domination of the South Pacific and Timor L’Este. The situation would not be improved by allying with China or any other would-be hegemon, because that wouldn’t change the system. The working class needs to unite internationally and abolish capitalism. Only this can build the basis for a world of liberty, equality and solidarity, where war is no more and the nation state has been abolished. We can have a new world of libertarian communism

Η Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group (Αναρχική Κομμουνιστική Ομάδα Μελβο-ύρνης καλεί τους αναρχικούς να ξεκινήσουν και τις ομάδες βάσης στα συνδικάτα να αγωνιστούν για την απάντηση των εργαζομένων στην πανδημία του κορονοϊού. Οι εργαζόμενοι πρέπει να χρησιμοποιήσουν κάθε δύναμη και εξουσιοδότηση διαθέτουν στους χώρους εργασίας ώστε να αναγκάσουν το κλείσιμο μη βασικών βιομηχανιών, την επαρκή προστασία της υγείας και της ασφάλειας και την παροχή εισοδήματος για όλους. Εάν τα αιτήματα αυτά κερδίσουν την υποστήριξη των εργαζόμενων, η συνδικαλιστική γραφειοκρατία είτε θα πρέπει να παραδώσει τα συνδικάτα στη βάση τους είτε να εξοστρακισθεί μια για πάντα.

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group calls on Anarchists to start rank and file groups in the unions to fight for a workers’ response to the coronavirus pandemic. Workers need to use workplace power to force the closure of non-essential industries, adequate protection of health and safety and the provision of a living income for all. If a groundswell for these demands gains strength, the officials will have either to give in to the rank and file, or be swept aside. In the course of this struggle over immediate issues, workers will raise broader demands, both about the management of the pandemic (e.g. civil liberties) and the sort of society we want afterwards. And it is in the context of this struggle that we can begin to win the argument for Anarchist Communism and to build the movement for a workers’ revolution that can create it.

textTowards an Anarchism in the Philippine Archipelago Apr 03 21:51 by Simoun Magsalin 0 comments

The politics in the Philippine archipelago is dominated by hierarchical and alienating politics as represented by reformism and National Democracy. Against these the paper forwards the liberatory politics of anarchism. The paper introduces anarchist concepts such as egalitarian organizing, mutual aid, and direct action for people unfamiliar with these concepts. After situating anarchism in the anti-authoritarian struggles in the archipelago, the paper also argues for a shift in the anarchist politics of the archipelago from an autonomist anarchism towards a revolutionary politics as a social movement.

Η Αναρχική Κομμουνιστική Ομάδα Μελβούρνης πιστεύει ότι το Κίνημα Απεργιών στα Σχολεία για το Κλίμα έχει μεγάλες δυνατότητες και ότι θα πρέπει ολόψυχα να ενωθούν μαζί του τα συνδικάτα. Οι σχολικές απεργίες πρέπει να μετατραπούν σε απεργίες των εργαζομένων. Στην Αυστραλία, η επόμενη ημέρα παγκόσμιας σχολικής απεργίας πρέπει να είναι η ευκαιρία μαζικών συντονισμένων απεργιών από εργαζόμενους από όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερες βιομηχανίες και κλάδους, με στόχο την οικοδόμηση μιας γενικής απεργίας. Η δύναμη του κεφαλαίου δημιουργείται στο χώρο εργασίας και μόνο με την οργάνωση εκεί μπορούν οι εργαζόμενοι να ανατρέψουν αυτή την εξουσία, να την αφαιρέσουν από τους καπιταλιστές και να την χειριστούν οι ίδιοι.

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group believes that the School Strike for Climate movement has great potential and that it should be joined wholeheartedly by the unions. School strikes should be turned into workers’ strikes. In Australia, the next global school strike day should be the occasion for mass co-ordinated strikes by workers from as many industries as possible, with the aim of building towards a general strike. The power of capital arises in the workplace and it is only by organising there that workers can wrench that power away from the capitalists and wield it themselves.

We recognise the right of the West Papuan people to self-determination and we call on the working class in both Australia and Indonesia to join us in this. It is particularly important for the working class movement in Indonesia to recognise the West Papuans’ right of self-determination, because this is the only way in which the question can be resolved peacefully.

It is these things: Liberal arrogance, the danger of recession, accelerating climate change and the Fascist threat that, together, form significant elements of the political terrain in Australia today. And it is these things that will guide the MACG in the next few years.

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.

There will be no peace while imperialism dominates the globe. Imperialism, though, is not a policy but the set of international relationships under global capitalism. Powerful countries compete with each other for influence and markets and seek to impose a world order in their favour. To end imperialism and its endless wars, we need to end capitalism.

So, this year and every year, the MACG joins the call to abolish Australia Day. Our vision is of a stateless communist society, a Workers’ Commonwealth worldwide and operating on the basis of consistent federalism. Here, in the land that is currently called Australia, the Workers’ Commonwealth will be the vehicle through which non-indigenous people work with, and learn from, indigenous people how to live sustainably in the land, as they did so successfully for over 60,000 years before the First Fleet brought British colonialism to these shores.

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group have joined PUSH! Organising and Educating to Build an Anti-Fascist United Front. As its name implies, PUSH! aims to build a united front of working class organisations against Fascism. Our forces are modest, composed of a handful of groups and individual activists who have left CARF, but we are clear about our basic direction. ... The MACG will pursue our vision for an anti-Fascist united front within PUSH! We know that many groups in the labour movement don’t share our strategy, so they will have to be either won over or sidelined. And we know that the union bureaucracy is craven and conservative, but we place our faith in the rank and file workers who are Fascism’s targets. The struggle against Fascism is inseparable from the struggle against the union bureaucracy – but didn’t we know that already?
