Η ξεχασμένη παράδοση του γαλλικού σοβιετισμού

Anarkismo - Fri, 09/04/2015 - 09:13
Για έναν αγγλόφωνο εξωτερικό παρατηρητή, το γαλλικό αναρχικό κίνημα –καθώς αυτό διαφέρει από το γαλλόφωνο αναρχικό κίνημα στη Βόρεια Αφρική, το Βιετνάμ, κλπ.- θεωρείται συχνά ως το κίνημα-«μητέρα» λόγω της αρκετά μαζικής εργατικής ομοσπονδίας CGT, η οποία, υπό αναρχική επιρροή, συγχωνεύθηκε με τα τοπικά Bourses du Travail το 1895, για τη συγκρότηση ενός «απολίτικου» μοντέλου μαζικού αναρχοσυνδικαλισμού που επαναλήφθηκε σε γαλλόφιλες χώρες όπως η Πολωνία και το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της Ευρώπης, αλλά και τόσο μακρινές χώρες όπως η Βραζιλία, η Αίγυπτος και η Σενεγάλη.

Remember and Revive the Militant Tradition of September 3, 1984!

Free the Boiketlong 4! No more banning orders!
On 3 September 1984, the Vaal Triangle, which is located southeast of Johannesburg and was part of the industrial heartland of South Africa, exploded into unrest. A general stay-away from work was called, schools were closed, buses and taxis stood idle and militant protest spread across the country. It was the most significant and large-scale rebellion of the black working class since the Soweto Uprising of June, 1976, and signified one of the final nails in the coffin of apartheid and white minority rule.

For the black working class living in the townships across the Vaal Triangle, such as Sharpeville, Sebokeng, Evaton, Bophelong, Boiketlong, Zamdela and others the conditions were very similar to those of today. A slump in the steel industry had led to many workers being retrenched, there were evictions of rent defaulters and bribery, corruption and self-enrichment of local councillors was rife. Councillors’ election promises went unfulfilled and township residents demanded their resignation.

Thirty-one years later, on 21 April 2015, the Sebokeng Magistrate’s Court in the Vaal sentenced four community activists from Boiketlong to sixteen years in prison each for allegedly setting fire to the local ward councillor’s house and cars during a protest action.

In less than two weeks time hundreds of neo-Nazis and racists will descend on the coastal town of Dover calling for Britain to “close the border”. It is vital that anti-fascists and anti-racists join the counter-protest.

Stop the drownings - send ferries not gun boats - stop visa checks

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 09/03/2015 - 05:24

A photo of the body of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi, drowned on the beaches of Fortress Europe has gone viral and appeared on the front pages of many papers across the world.  Aylan died with his brother and his mother.  All were apparently fleeing the murderous ISIS onslaught on Kobane

Let's not send gunboats to rescue the drowning, let's send ferries to provide safe crossings for the living.

Let's not build detention camps on Greek islands, let's remove the requirement that airlines check visas before people can board.

Why the media is biased - understanding the propaganda model

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 09/02/2015 - 19:56
When the Watergate Scandal brought down the Nixon Government in the States in the mid-70s, it was heralded as one of the finest examples of media power in modern times. Nixon's fall from grace, along with the story of corruption in high places, was the stuff of drama. In no time, the journalists at the centre of the Watergate exposé - Bernstein and Woodward - became celebrities. They went on to win Pulitzer Prizes for their journalistic endeavours and even became the subject of a Hollywood touch-up in All The President's Men.

Στη φετινή ΔΕΘ κάνουμε την πρώτη κινηματική εμφάνιση της Πρωτοβουλίας για τη συγκρότηση Αναρχικής Ομοσπονδίας, προτάσσοντας τη συλλογικοποίηση των αναγκών μας και τη συνολικοποίηση των αγώνων της τάξης μας ενάντια στον σύγχρονο ολοκληρωτισμό. Στηρίζουμε τους ακηδεμόνευτους κοινωνικούς και ταξικούς αγώνες, όπως αυτούς των εργατών της ΒΙΟ.ΜΕ. και των κατοίκων της Χαλκιδικής ενάντια στην εξόρυξη χρυσού, αλλά και όλες τις προσπάθειες αυτοοργάνωσης των από-τα-κάτω με τις οποίες θα πορευτούμε μαζί στη διαδήλωση της ΔΕΘ. Ενάντια σε κράτος, Ε.Ε., ντόπιο και διεθνές κεφάλαιο βαδίζουμε στον δρόμο της κοινωνικής επανάστασης, της αναρχίας και του κομμουνισμού.

Asylum seeker, homeless - We Rebel! We support decent housing for all!

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 09/02/2015 - 11:56
Last week, three children under the age of six slept rough in Dublin city centre while their parents stayed awake to watch over them. As of August 2015, this family is but one of 620 families in Ireland, including more than 1,300 children, who are homeless. The root of the current crisis of housing is the current crisis of capitalism.

Μπροστά σε αυτές τις συνθήκες δεν μπορούμε παρά να στεκόμαστε δίπλα τους. Βλέπετε, είμαστε και εμείς κόσμος που αγωνιά για το τι θα του ξημερώσει. Οι περισσότεροι και οι περισσότερες εξαντλώντας τις μέρες μας σε κακοπληρωμένες δουλειές ή ψάχνοντας για μία. Άλλοι από εδώ και άλλες έχοντας επιλέξει αυτόν τον τόπο για να ζήσουμε. Ζώντας μέσα σε μία συνεχή ανασφάλεια καταλαβαίνουμε πολύ καλά τι μας φταίει και ακόμα περισσότερο ποιοι-ες. Και σίγουρα δεν είναι αυτοί οι άνθρωποι που φτάνουν…

Costruire l'autonomia in Turchia e Kurdistan: intervista con Azione Rivoluzionaria Anarchica (DAF)

Anarkismo - Wed, 09/02/2015 - 04:55
Nel maggio di quest'anno, i ricercatori di Corporate Watch hanno viaggiato per la Turchia ed il Kurdistan per un lavoro di inchiesta sulle imprese che forniscono equipaggiamento militare alla polizia ed all'esercito turchi. Abbiamo incontrato con diversi gruppi impegnati in vari movimenti e varie campagne. Di seguito la trascrizione dell'intervista con 3 militanti del gruppo anarchico Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (DAF, o Azione Rivoluzionaria Anarchica) a Istanbul nel maggio di quest'anno. Il DAF è impegnato nella solidarietà con la lotta curda, con la rivoluzione nella Rojava e contro l'attacco dell'ISIS a Kobane, ed è ugualmente attivo nel contrastare la repressione dello stato turco e gli abusi delle imprese. Il DAF sta cercando di costruire un'alternativa al sistema attuale attraverso l'auto-organizzazione, il mutuo appoggio e le cooperative.
L'intervista è stata fatta durante la campagna elettorale per le elezioni turche e tocca anche la campagna elettorale dell'HDP, il Partito Democratico del Popolo, filo-curdo. Subito dopo l'intervista, l'HDP era riuscito a superare la soglia del 10% dei voti necessaria per entrare nel Parlamento turco.
I militanti del DAF – che preferiscono mantenere l'anonimato – iniziano l'intervista con la storia dell'anarchismo nella regione. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/28462]

Dal salario di esistenza al contropotere della classe lavoratrice

Anarkismo - Wed, 09/02/2015 - 03:57
Pur facendo parte della lotta, il salario di esistenza in sè non dovrebbe esserne il fine, bensì dovrebbe essere collegato alla più ampia lotta della classe lavoratrice per costruire quel contropotere che rovesci l'esistente struttura di potere.

The general orientation of anarchists/ syndicalists to the United Front and NUMSA

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 09/02/2015 - 03:48
Open Correspondence Column
Will the United Front (UF) address the crises we are currently facing in South Africa? I am concerned about how the UF works and who leads it. In my own view we don’t need a leader, we need to all have equal voice. How can we build the UF as a basis for a stateless, socialist, South Africa?
