Bolivia: Burdens of a State Manager

Anarkismo - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 05:44
In the open­ing salvos of Latin America’s uneven lurch to the Left in the early twenty-first cen­tury, Bolivia dis­tin­guished itself as the region’s most rad­i­cal socio-political ter­rain.1 Left-indigenous move­ments in the coun­try­side and cityscapes alike threw the state into cri­sis and brought two suc­ces­sive neolib­eral pres­i­dents to their knees – Gon­zalo Sánchez de Lozada in 2003, and Car­los Mesa in 2005.2 Evo Morales’s party, the Movimiento al Social­ismo (Move­ment Towards Social­ism, MAS), leapt into the power vac­uum opened up by this series of revolts, and there has been seri­ous debate on the Left as to how best to but­ton down the cen­tral polit­i­cal dynamic of the coun­try ever since. In a coun­try where 62 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion self-identified as indige­nous in the 2001 cen­sus, Morales became the first indige­nous pres­i­dent through the Decem­ber 2005 elec­tions with 54 per­cent of the pop­u­lar vote, assum­ing office in Jan­u­ary 2006. He repeated this extra­or­di­nary elec­toral suc­cess in Decem­ber 2009, with 64 per­cent, and again in Octo­ber 2014, with 61 percent.

Ο Θεός είναι το απόλυτο Μηδέν

Anarkismo - Sun, 04/12/2015 - 06:23
Το παρακάτω κείμενο είναι μια περικοπή από τον τόμο που κυκλοφόρησε από τις εκδόσεις «Ελεύθερος Τύπος» «Φεντεραλισμός Σοσιαλισμός Αντιθεολογισμός» του Μ. Μπακούνιν. Είναι, όπως φαίνεται και από τον τίτλο που επιλέχθηκε από μια φράση στο κείμενο, κομμάτι του κεφαλαίου για τον Αντιθεολογισμό. Ίσως είναι πράγματα που, θα πει κάποιος, πως έχουν ειπωθεί ή πως η επίκληση της επιστήμης έναντι της θρησκείας είναι χιλιοχρησιμοποιημένη στην τελευταία φάση εξέλιξης του καπιταλισμού. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, η φιλοσοφική αξία του κειμένου είναι αδιαμφισβήτητη και θα έλεγα πως σε καιρούς που ο σκοταδισμός επιστρέφει με ταχύτητα και μάλιστα, σε καιρούς που η αλματώδης τεχνολογική εξέλιξη του καπιταλισμού τον ντύνει με έναν μανδύα -ψευδο- προοδευτικότητας, η πολεμική, και κυρίως, η λογική της πολεμικής ενάντια στους παλιούς συμμάχους της εξουσίας, είναι περισσότερο από ποτέ αναγκαία.

Fascists crawl out of the sewers

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 04/09/2015 - 06:40
Fascism is a movement of the ruined middle classes (e.g. small business going out backwards), who aim to take State power by, or with the assistance of, extra-legal force in order to resolve their problems at the expense of the working class. In attempting this, it makes use of demoralised sections of the unemployed who can think little further than where their next meal is coming from.

Rojava y la municipalización de la economía

Anarkismo - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 17:18
A medida que continúa la revolución de Rojava, la naturaleza de su economía ha sido muy discutida. Como he escrito anteriormente, Rojava aspira a una economía social basada en el sistema de cooperativas. En las últimas semanas, varias personas me han preguntado por las ideas de Murray Bookchin sobre la economía: ¿cuáles son los aspectos económicos del municipalismo libertario? He creado un resumen de su pensamiento, sobre la base de los recursos enumerados al final de este artículo. -Janet Biehl

Kurarrewe y su lucha contra los monstruos chupa ríos

Anarkismo - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 16:46
Pasan los años y la lucha del pueblo Mapuche no cesa. La recuperación de tierras usurpadas por terratenientes, robadas a punta de astucia ente el comunero que no sabía leer, ni menos escribir. La autonomía interrumpida por parte del Estado invasor, de la mano con la religión, la que nos dice qué está bien y qué está mal. Esa que anula las ceremonias de mis abuelos, por ser paganas, cuando lo más bello es crecer, recordar y vivir nuestra esencia, nuestras raíces.

Obama e a hipocrisia da Guerra ao Terror

Anarkismo - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 11:24
08 de abril de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

No dia 18 de fevereiro deste ano, em plena quarta-feira de cinzas, o presidente da superpotência, Barack Hussein Obama pronunciou um discurso ímpar. O mandatário dos EUA abria com sua boa oratória o Encontro da Casa Branca para debater soluções contra o extremismo violento. No foco de seu discurso, uma abordagem compreensiva e bastante razoável do fenômeno do terrorismo sunita de inspiração religiosa. Diretamente Obama se referia às redes Al-Qaeda e Estado Islâmico (Daesh).

Se um leigo ou alguma pessoa desinformada escutasse a fala do presidente dos Estados Unidos, acreditaria na intenção correta do mesmo. O ex-senador por Illinois é um grande orador e trouxe de improviso a melhor das tradições democráticas estadunidenses. Estas combinam uma legítima absorção do caldeirão cultural de imigrantes (melting pot) e, ao mesmo tempo, a subordinação do discurso liberal e de respeito aos direitos humanos para com a lógica da geopolítica e do mais cínico realismo nas relações internacionais.

El Confederalìsmo Democrático y la economía colectivista

Anarkismo - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 18:46
Por Bruno Lima Rocha

Este ensayo es el comienzo de un intento de desarrollar un enfoque libertario de izquierda, hacia un modelo económico, específicamente en relación con un modelo que sea compatible con los partidos políticos del Confederalismo Democrático, también conocido como Municipalismo Libertario. En esta etapa, el objetivo es el desarrollo de un trabajo conjunto de análisis y herramientas de aprendizaje, que deberán lograrse en el marco de la Izquierda Libertaria. Para ello presento este texto relativamente simple para proporcionar nociones accesibles para aquellos que luchan por construir una sociedad basada en Confederalismo Democrático, tomando como base el avance de la revolución social en el Curdistán, proceso social coordinado por el Partido de los Trabajadores del Curdistán (PKK).

Palestine-Israel, The collapse of the deterrent ability of Israel in the last Gaza war is expressed every where*

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 16:37
The frustrated Israeli state force who do not dare to prevent the weekly non armed popular demonstrations - Joined and purely of Palestinians, resort to shooting on demonstrators with frequent use of live fire by snippers. In the annexed regions of Jerusalem they no more pretend it is not an occupied area and apply there the occupation procedures - both in treatment of detaining children and houses demolition. The "hot" areas of the popular non armed struggle gradually expand but still far away from a general uprising. The international popular struggle worry the Israeli elite but the damages to the Israeli economy is still in the margins. It seems the Zionist settler colonialist elite which bribed the tycoons section of the capitalist elite with extreme neo liberal measures cannot do it any more as other sections of the capitalist elite (backers of Cakhlon) rebelled.

Marriage Equality: Assimilation is Boring, I Want Liberation

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 12:00

This year it feels as if there has been a revamping of homophobia in the north which has had, unsurprisingly, significant support from the church and those in political and therefore institutional power.

We have witnessed the DUP quash the third attempt to legalise queer marriage, bigoted ‘Christian’ bakers refusing to follow through with a service they advertised because it went against their “deeply held beliefs” (not to mention all the other services they provide that do go against their beliefs). This was followed by the the DUP attempting to bring in a 'Conscience Clause' to legalize and institutionalize homophobia; to make it legal to refuse service to someone because of their sexuality. The above examples are only a few of the homophobic incidents that have taken place recently.

The resistance and the fightback from these incidents must be queer-led and supported by our straight allies. Moreover, it should be noted that incidents like the above push us into a defensive stance; as opposed to an offensive one.

NCAD Students Occupy Director Office and Read Demands

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 10:49

The simmering student revolt that started this spring in Amsterdam and spread to the LSE in London has now reached Dublin. Austerity has meant the acceleration of the EU neoliberal plan to turn universities into over packed and pressured factories churning out little human units optimised for industry.

Capitalism in Ireland: Many of Us Have No Home, a Few Have 500+

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 10:41

Thank's to the unpopular property tax we at least know slightly more about the super wealthy in Ireland. The government is normally very careful to neither collect information about this group nor to publish it in a way that would reveal the enormous gap in wealth and power between us and them. It would not do to have Joe or Josephine Worker realise that they could work for 10,000 years and still never approach the wealth of the Denis O'Briens.
