Charlie Hebdo and the hypocrisy of pencils

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 07:53
It was Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight who tipped me over the edge.

To be fair, he wasn’t wholly responsible. If it wasn’t for all the lunacy that preceded him, I probably would have dismissed his cartoon as just another Herald Sun atrocity, more a piece of Murdoch-madness to be mocked rather than trigger for outrage. But context is everything. And after days of sanctimonious blather about freedom of speech and the Enlightenment values of Western civilisation, his was one pencil-warfare cartoon too many.

Je ne suis pas Charlie (I am not Charlie)

Anarkismo (en) - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 18:29
Translator: Evelin Cotella. Correction by Diarmuid Breatnach
To begin with, let me make it clear from the outset that I consider the attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo to be an atrocity and that I do not believe that it is justifiable under any circumstances to make a military target of a journalist, no matter what our opinion on the quality of his journalism may be. The same is valid in France, as it is in Colombia or in Palestine. Also, nor do I identify with any fundamentalism, whether it be Christian, Jewish or Muslim, nor indeed with Frenchified mock-secularism either, which makes a goddess of the “République”.

An Interview to a DAF militant about the solidarity for Rojava social process

Anarkismo (en) - Sat, 01/10/2015 - 17:01
Introduction: Since the Kobanê siege started I have been dedicated several hours per week to understand and divulgate as much as possible about this social revolution initiated in a combination of Apoism and the Syrian Civil War. As a militant, I always have been involved in international solidarity. As an Arab descendent, I always have been trying to find a reliable left-wing force combining direct action and internal democracy. As a scholar and a Professor of Geopolitics studying the region for more than 25 years, Rojava is a dream coming true. Here I start the first of some interviews to organizations with real experience in this process and on the ground. This one I’m talking to Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (DAF, or Revolutionary Anarchist Action). They have been very active in this activity and understand in details the whole Kurdish process, both in Rojava and inside the Turkish State frontiers.

Defending Free Speech in France Does not Stop with the Mainstream Press - Support Saïdou and Said Bouamama

(Translation of article from Alternative Libertaire)

On January 20, 2015, the rapper Saïdou and Bouamama Said, a sociologist and activist, will appear before a Paris Court, following an investigation for "public insult" and "incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence" on foot of a complaint from a far right organisation.

Nous regrettons la transformation de la manifestation de dimanche prochain, initiée par les organisations antiracistes, en une « marche républicaine » dont Valls se voudrait l’organisateur et où Sarkozy défilera.

A matança no jornal Charlie Hebdo e as contradições do Sistema Internacional diante da Revolução de Rojava

Anarkismo - Fri, 01/09/2015 - 17:54
A barbárie cometida em 06 de janeiro de 2015 contra os jornalistas-chargistas da publicação francesa Charlie Hebdo demonstra o quanto à presença do Daesh (Estado Islâmico, IS ou ISIL) é danosa para ser tolerada como peça de negociação dentro da crueldade do jogo do Sistema Internacional. Neste breve artigo apresento algumas contradições dos membros da OTAN no cenário do mundo em conflito. Estendo as críticas para a cobertura de mídia internacional, focando-me na difusão da CNN, infelizmente a TV que melhor distribui no planeta. Ao desinformar sobre Rojava, o PYD e o TEV-Dem, a mídia corporativa opera como porta-voz oficiosa do governo de Barack Obama e sua política de duplo discurso na região.

Análise preditiva para o cenário político nacional em 2015

Anarkismo - Fri, 01/09/2015 - 17:47
Ao contrário da maior parte das postagens deste portal e os respectivos compartilhamentos, desta vez este analista se dá ao direito de ser 100% normativo. Proponho uma análise de tipo normativa (dever ser), partindo do ponto de vista de quem se posiciona pelo avanço da democracia em todos os níveis, estando a maioria organizada como agente coletivo com poder de veto diante das decisões verticais típicas de uma sociedade onde não há justiça social embora exista igualdade formal de direitos. O momento realmente é grave diante da crise do modelo do tímido keynesianismo tardio, do retrocesso localizado nas posturas neoliberais, defensoras dos astronômicos lucros do rentismo (alocando mais de 40% do orçamento da União apenas com a rolagem de juros da dívida odiosa) e partindo diretamente para o corte de direitos sociais e, por tabela, do volume de crédito e condições de vida.

De la no-libertad de expresión y el periodismo “satírico”

Anarkismo - Thu, 01/08/2015 - 23:38
Reflexiones al respecto de la masacre contra Charlie Hedbo, la libertad de expresión y la guerra anti-”terrorista”
La presentadora de Noticias Caracol del medio día inicia el preludio de la nota acerca del atentado contra la revista Charlie Hedbo diciendo algo así como “Francia hoy está de luto, el país que nos enseño la importancia de la fraternidad, la igualdad y la libertad”, luego elogia al país franco diciendo que es “el Estado más fuerte del mundo”, utilizando fuerte como sinónimo de democrático. Para el grupo editorial, la “solidaridad” no solo debe ser con las personas cercanas a las víctimas sino que también con todo el pueblo francés. De hecho, el mismo noticiero va hasta la embajada de Francia en Bogotá y realiza una nota sobre como se le rinde homenaje a las víctimas, además de apuntar mensajes de apoyo de periodistas alrededor de mundo.

Declaración de Alternativa Libertaria (Francia)
Cierto, Alternativa Libertaria está comprometida en la lucha contra todas las fuerzas retrógradas. Pero esta lucha no puede ser llevada en el marco de una "unidad nacional" simbólica, con responsables políticos que, a izquierda o derecha, han atizado el odio y son en parte responsables del caos actual.

n the Wake of Charlie Hebdo, Free Speech Does Not Mean Freedom From Criticism

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 01/08/2015 - 08:23
On Wednesday morning, the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was attacked by three masked gunmen, armed with kalashnikovs, who stormed the building and killed ten of its staff and two police officers. The gunmen are currently understood to be Muslim extremists. This attack came minutes after the paper tweeted this drawing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

Incomplete memoirs of early Egyptian anarchism

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 01/08/2015 - 03:28
NOTE by Lucien van der Walt: English translation by Nestor McNab of three parts of the historical memoirs of I. U. Parrini – one of the initiators of the anarchist movement in Italy and Egypt, from the days of the First International – which were published in Italian in “La Protesta Umana” of San Francisco, nos. 36, 38 and 40 (21 Nov. and 26 Dec. 1903, and 9 Jan. 1904 respectively). This material is provided for purposes of historical recovery: it must be noted that Parrini was (according to Tony Gorman's 2010 overview of Egyptian anarchism) a "staunch anti-organisationalist, ... notorious for his uncompromising style and ... a persistent obstacle to greater cooperation among anarchists. Not until after his death in 1906 was a national program of action agreed which provided a solid basis for collaboration within the Egyptian movement." His current was in constant conflict with the growing, eventually ascendant, anarcho-syndicalists. Nonetheless, these memoirs -- despite their polemical quality and imbalances -- are a valuable testimony, deserving of wider circulation, not least for their insider view, from the perspective of one current in the movement.

The material is sourced from Leonardo Bettini, "Bibliografia dell'anarchismo, volume 2, tomo 2: periodici e numeri unici anarchici in lingua italiana pubblicati all'estero (1872-1971)" (CP editrice, Firenze, 1976), translation by Nestor McNab. Via Lucien van der Walt.
