The struggle for the environment

Anarkismo - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 06:50
Through libertarian communism we can reach a point of balance between the capacities to produce, the needs of populations, and the limits of the biosphere. We cannot build our future in opposition to the rest of life. The ideology of domination must be broken everywhere, so that humanity can find a safe future on its planet.

Diagnóstico y desafíos para el actual momento político: ¡No más abortos clandestinos!

Anarkismo - Sun, 04/05/2015 - 17:12
La lucha por la despenalización del aborto en nuestro país [Chile] tiene una larga historia, ha sido impulsada por diversas organizaciones feministas, políticas y sociales con el fin de reivindicar un derecho fundamental para las mujeres. Esta lucha se ha visto históricamente empañada por la iglesia católica y grupos religiosos fundamentalistas, sectores sociales que además tienen una gran influencia sobre el Estado, y a su disposición cuentan con poderosos medios de comunicación; donde promueven sus valores y ética frente a esa “vida” que está por nacer, cercenando el derecho a decidir de cada mujer.

O Confederalismo Democrático e a Economia Coletivista

Anarkismo - Fri, 04/03/2015 - 18:21
2 de abril de 2015 – Bruno Lima Rocha

Este ensaio é o início de uma tentativa de desenvolver uma abordagem libertária de esquerda em direção a um modelo econômico, especificamente em relação a um modelo que é compatível com as formações políticas do Confederalismo Democrático, também conhecido como Municipalismo Libertário. Nesta fase, o objetivo é o desenvolvimento de um trabalho conjunto de ferramentas de análise e de aprendizagem que seja fomentado entre a Esquerda Libertária. Para este fim submeto este texto relativamente simples para fornecer noções acessíveis para aqueles que lutam para construir uma sociedade baseada na Confederalismo Democrático.

Operação Zelotes, Lava-Jato e as oportunidades perdidas

Anarkismo - Fri, 04/03/2015 - 11:36
"[...] o partido de governo se torna cúmplice de oligarcas e neoliberais nas relações pouco republicanas com o aparelho de Estado".....02 de abril de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

Tem momentos na história de um país em que um conjunto de forças à esquerda tem as chances históricas de quebra da hegemonia de pensamento e as coisas passam desapercebidas. Entendo que, graças ao triste fato do PT se imiscuir com o pior do Brasil nos últimos 12 anos, estamos diante de um gigantesco escândalo - evidência com provas - de sonegação fiscal com provável corrupção de agentes públicos - do primeiro escalão da Receita - e apenas a difusão destes fatos poderia colocar contra a parede o andar de cima inteiro. Apenas verificando as listas cruzadas da Lava-Jato com a Zelotes (que deixara um rombo nos cofres públicos de R$ 19 bi, o dobro da Lava-Jato), derrubamos mitos de excelência do setor privado, capacidade de competência do agente econômico e superação do setor público.

A Grand Day Out

Anarchist Writers - Thu, 04/02/2015 - 07:22

“Ed, that’s soldier’s headed our way, we’re gonna have to move”. Sure enough the soldier is trudging down the road towards us, unshouldering his rifle and looking, even from this distance, distinctly narked. Ed doesn’t directly acknowledge my warning, except with a barely discernible movement of the head, focussed as he is on his camera shot. He knows I know that he’s heard me and he knows that as I haven’t yet added the “...now!” intensifier, that he has a few more precious seconds to finish the shot, as the camera pans over the ruins of Eastern Kobane against the backdrop of Mishtenur Hill. It’s 2:30 in the afternoon of Thursday 19 March on the Turkish side of the border with Syria and Kobane.

[South Africa] End the de facto State of Emergency in Themelihle

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 08:58
The Thembelihle Crisis Committee, the United Front (UF), the Right to Know (R2K) Campaign and the Democratic Left Front call on all people of good conscience in South Africa to endorse the call for an end to the security siege of Thembelihle. Since the 25th of February 2015, Thembelihle has faced a de facto State of Emergency at the hands of the South African Police Services (SAPS) and other security agents. This undeclared, unofficial State of Emergency in Thembelihle is an attack on all our constitutionally guaranteed rights to and freedoms to organise, associate and freely express ourselves. We call for urgent action to put pressure on the SAPS to end the siege. We call for the creation of conducive conditions for free, open and democratic political activity in which the people of Thembelihle may express and exercise their right to protest, and have their demands for a decent life of dignity met.

Recovering Portugal's Mass Anarchist History

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 09:54
a review of João Freire's Freedom Fighters: Anarchist Intellectuals, Workers, and Soldiers in Portugal's History
Overshadowed in most histories by the Spanish anarchist movement next door, the Portuguese movement may have been numerically smaller but was relatively, by head of population, a *larger* movement, with the anarchosyndicalist CGT achieving an almost totally hegemonic position in the working class.

The Forgotten Tradition of French Sovietism

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 09:49
a review of David Berry's A History of the French Anarchist Movement, 1917-1945
To an English-speaking outsider, the French anarchist movement - as distinct from the Francophone anarchist movement in North Africa, Vietnam, etc - is often viewed as the "mother" movement because of the massive CGT union federation which, under anarchist sway, amalgamated with the local Bourses du Travail in 1895, establishing an "apolitical" model of mass anarchosyndicalism that was replicated in Fracophile countries such as Poland and most of Europe and lands as far away as Brazil, Egypt and Senegal.

Brazil: The Débâcle of the PT

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 06:31
Hundreds of thousands of chiefly white middle class protesters took to the streets in Brazil on 15 March in an organized upsurge of hatred against the federal administration led by President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT). These protests are far more cohesive and better organized than the previous wave of anti-government demonstrations, in 2013; their demands are unambiguously reactionary, and they include primarily the country's elite.

Rally Against Racism Sat 4 April

Anarkismo (en) - Sun, 03/29/2015 - 08:21
The far Right “Reclaim Australia” plans to hold an anti-Muslim rally in Melbourne and also at other places around Australia. They want people to believe they’re just “ordinary Australians” who are worried about “radical Islam”. What they’re NOT telling you is that they are Fascists – yes, actual far Right, Hitler-loving racists who have decided it’s a tactical advantage to wrap themselves in Australian flags.

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 10:52

We covered the attempted eviction of the squatted complex at Grangegorman during the week of via our new Facebook page, youtube and Twitter.  

For those not familar with Dublin the attempted eviction is happening just 100m north of Smithfield Square.  The complex consists of a mix of residentical, industrial & commercial premises that had been left derlict for up to 15 years.  There had been a couple of eviction scares previously but at 6.30am on the morning of Monday 23rd March the residents were suddenly worken by the sound of a gang of over 30 men smashing their way into the compound and in at least one case into their houses.  

One of our reporters was awoke shortly afterwards to a text message sayiong this was happening and they made their way down, the coverage that follows is a result of their work and the work of other WSM reporters.  We've edited the updates together and improved their readibility.
