What is an Anarchist? Am I an Anarchist?

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 05/11/2017 - 00:34
Where are the Limits of Anarchism?
Anarchism is an uncertain term. Self-identified anarchists sometimes see their particular school of anarchism as the only legitimate type of anarchism. For example, I have been told that I am not an anarchist or that what I believe is not anarchism. This happens most often over discussions about anarchism and radical democracy, or anarchism\'s use of aspects of Marxism, or support for technology, or advocacy of the self-organization of revolutionary anarchists.

Indígena nasa muerto y periodista de Enraizando herido de bala en Corinto, Cauca

Anarkismo - Wed, 05/10/2017 - 20:43
Sobre los hechos acontecidos el 9 de Mayo del 2017, donde la fuerza pública arremetió contra la comunidad nasa de Corinto, sin importarle lo más mínimo los derechos humanos; con operativos del ESMAD, de la policía y, de la fuerza militar. En los hechos falleció Daniel Felipe Castro, quién fue impactado en dos ocasiones, por el hombro y por el costado izquierdo, lo que generó que por las heridas en los pulmones y el derramamiento de sangre interno, muriera por paro respiratorio cuando ya iba camino a Cali a ser atendido, en las cercanías de Padilla. Por otro lado, un periodista del colectivo Enraizando también fue herido por un impacto de bala en la parte del abdomen bajo por la espalda, generándole afectaciones en el sistema intestinal, y se encuentra ahora en tratamiento médico, estabilizado luego de una primera cirugía.

Αλληλεγγύη στους αγώνες των λαών

Anarkismo - Wed, 05/10/2017 - 06:23
Στην Τουρκί και το Κουρδιστάν
Σε μια περίοδο όπου έχουν φουντώσει οι γεωπολιτικοί ανταγωνισμοί στην ανατολική Μεσόγειο και τα τύμπανα του πολέμου ηχούν όλο και δυνατότερα, οι λαοί της περιοχής δεν έχουν να χωρίσουν τίποτα. Αντίθετα οι καταπιεσμένοι και στις δύο πλευρές του Αιγαίου πρέπει να ενώσουμε τους αγώνες μας να ισοπεδώσουμε τα τείχη που ορθώνει ανάμεσα μας η εξουσία. Η διεθνιστική αλληλεγγύη στους αγώνες των λαών στην Τουρκία και το Κουρδιστάν είναι εκ των ων ουκ άνευ όρος για να οικοδομήσουμε ένα πλατύ διεθνιστικό επαναστατικό μέτωπο που θα διαλύσει τα σχέδια των ιμπεριαλιστών και των καπιταλιστών και θα επιτρέψει στους λαούς της περιοχής μας να ζήσουν αδελφωμένοι.

Ο Βαρδής δεν παραιτήθηκε ποτέ

Anarkismo - Tue, 05/09/2017 - 17:15
Ο Βαρδής ήταν ένας άνθρωπος ξεχωριστός, δύσκολος αλλά ευθύς, απότομος αλλά ειλικρινής, ασυμβίβαστος ακόμα και όταν ένοιωθε το τέλος να πλησιάζει, μένοντας αταλάντευτος στις αξίες και στα ιδανικά του. Αδιάλειπτα στην πρώτη γραμμή των αγώνων και πάντα στο πλευρό των καταπιεσμένων, ήταν διατεθειμένος να συγκρούεται μέχρις εσχάτων με ότι θεωρούσε άδικο, μη λογαριάζοντας τις συνέπειες.

Εθνικά ζητήματα - δημοκρατικός συνομοσπονδισμό&#96

Anarkismo - Tue, 05/09/2017 - 05:39
Σε κάθε περίπτωση είναι απαραίτητη η δημιουργία ενός διεθνιστικού παρατηρητηρίου για τα Βαλκάνια, τη Μέση Ανατολή και τη Μεσόγειο ως θάλασσα που βρέχει τον ευρωπαϊκό Νότο και την πολύπαθη Αφρική. Είναι προϋπόθεση για τη δημιουργία επαφών, ανταλλαγών και προώθησης των αντιλήψεων της δημοκρατικής αυτονομίας και του συνομοσπονδισμού.

One Class, One Struggle! Undocumented and Documented Workers Unite on May Day

Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) - Mon, 05/08/2017 - 21:30

By Patrick O’Donoghue - The Organizer, May 1, 2017

A Day of Resistance!

Today is May Day, or as we in the labor movement call it, International Worker’s Day- a day of celebration and resistance for working class people. It is a day not only of looking forward to the future, but also remembering the lessons of the past. May Day commemorates the struggle of the Haymarket Martyrs, a group of labor organizers, most of them immigrants, executed in Chicago for their work in the Eight Hour Day movement. The Eight Hour Day was the first time that workers around the world joined together in one campaign, supporting each other’s strikes and protests around a single demand- reduce the work day to eight hours, without a cut in pay. The movement faced violence and arrests from governments, but eventually won in country after country. The eight hour day became the basic work day for workers across the countries where the movement fought, with victories across Europe, North and South America, Australia, Iran, Japan, and elsewhere. Over a century ago, workers realized the power we have when we refuse to be divided by borders, industry, or race.

This May Day is also the Day Without Immigrants. It is the latest in a wave of of day strike by immigrant workers- not only to protest wages and work conditions, but also to protest the Trump’s plans to increase deportations. Under the Trump’s ramping up of the Obama administration’s already record-breaking deportations, ICE has increasingly targeted previously protected DREAMers and other undocumented people not otherwise criminalized by the state. ICE raids are becoming more regular even in “Sanctuary Cities”, and more of our neighbors, coworkers, family, and friends are being captured, torn from their homes, forced through over-crowded detention centers and courts without due process.

In the Twin Cities, many of the actions today are organized by CTUL, the workers center for low wage workers of color, especially immigrant workers. Even more of the walk outs and sick outs are “wildcat” actions organized on the shop floor between undocumented workers, without needing the go-ahead from a union or organizer.

By striking, these undocumented workers are showing how important they are to making the world run. How many restaurants are shut down today because the back end staff didn’t come in? How many landscapers and construction companies who rely on day laborerers are not making money today? How many farm fields aren’t being worked? Every day, undocumented immigrant workers do some of the toughest jobs in America, and the country starts to grind to a halt without immigrant workers. Deportations crackdowns have already left millions of dollars of produce to rot in the fields in Alabama, Georgia, and California as farmers dependent on exploiting undocumented workers can’t find Americans to work for as low as $10,000-$12,000 a year. The four industries with the most undocumented workforce- agriculture, cleaning and maintenance, construction, and food preparation and service- are all expecting labor shortages if Trump’s deportation plan is carried out. American companies and bosses need our immigrant fellow workers- but the administration and parts of the press try to tell workers who are citizens that undocumented workers are hurting American working standards. Nothing could be further from the truth.

[Book Review] Revolution in Rojava: Democratic Autonomy and Women’s Liberation in Syrian Kurdistan

Anarkismo - Sun, 05/07/2017 - 18:12
Although this is mostly a descriptive book, without much emphasis in theoretical debates, there is in it a wealth of thought-provoking ideas that have universal value. That this experience is relevant beyond the borders of Syria is proved by the extraordinary reception to this book. Pluto Press is already thinking of the second edition and recently, Ercan Ayboga, one of the co-authors, had a tour in Ireland, North and South, to launch the book; this brought him from Cork to Belfast, with stops in Dublin, Cavan and Dungannon. In all places, the people engaged and felt that Rojava had something very important to tell them.
