A "Zionist left" and a real left - two parallel lines that will never meet.

Anarkismo (en) - Sun, 04/30/2017 - 01:32
The "far-reaching compromise" of the Israeli Communist Party (and its front Hadash) who are pretending to be non-Zionists, and their like on the Zionist left is "two states for two peoples". It means: the existence of the State of Israel within the 1967 borders - the "Green Line", in which the Palestinian citizens are a minority.

Beyond May Day Parades: Building a Counter-Movement in Malaysia and Worldwide

Anarkismo (en) - Fri, 04/28/2017 - 05:23
Let us learn from our past struggles, in the USA and in Malaysia. May Day should be an occasion to reflect not jubilate, to engage not agonize, to demand not relent, and to organise, not complain. We need systemic change that can guarantee equality, fraternity, self-management and socialisation of the commonwealth, guided by a bottom–up approach to decision making. We need a labour movement that is multicultural and international, feminist, active in urban and rural struggles, and that prizes reason over superstition, justice over hierarchy, self-management over state power, international solidarity over nationalism. We need to fight for a universal human community, not parochialism and separatism. The organisational power and strategic location of the Malaysian union movement provides an excellent point of departure for building this counter-movement. This is our appeal and message as we celebrate this May Day, on the eve of dark days in which the storm clouds gather over humanity – but in which the light of hope of a better future can break through, if we arm ourselves with the correct ideas and approaches. May Day began as an example of globalisation-from-below. Let us rally to it. Let us take back its original vision: liberty, equality, unity.

End War: End Capitalism

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 04/24/2017 - 18:58
War is integral to imperialism. We can't end war without ending imperialism and we can't end imperialism without ending capitalism, because imperialism is not merely a policy, but the set of international relationships in capitalism for over 100 years now. We don't have to send young men and women overseas to kill brown people and we don't have to allow a US base at Pine Gap to guide both nuclear missiles and drones. To change direction, though, means eliminating the capitalist system that brings us these horrors. The working class needs to unite internationally and make a revolution to abolish it. We need to replace capitalism with the only possible alternative – libertarian communism.

Who’s Rafael Braga Vieira?

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 04/24/2017 - 16:24
Translation to English
Rafael Braga Vieira is a black and poor young man, who, until June of 2013, worked collecting material for recycling in downtown streets of Rio de Janeiro. He lived on the streets in order to save money on his way back home – he didn’t return home everyday in Vila Cruzeiro (North zone), where he lived with his parents, brothers and sisters. However, on June 20, Rafael Braga’s routine changed.

Exploitation in one click? Grassroots unions start international delivery service campaign #deliverunion

Libcom.org News - Mon, 04/24/2017 - 14:20
riders-unite.jpg

Deliveroo and Foodora are two very young start-ups that are rapidly expanding on a global level through their high amount of start-up funds. They spark doubts whether digital capitalism brings an end to work – as some have been claiming. But in fact, the ones who bike the streets for the new internet delivery services have to go many miles through the traffic each day and are regularly put into dangerous situations. Through the #deliverunion campaign, the cyclists are now raising their voices.

In the Shadow of Social Democracy: Right-Wing Challenges and Left Alternatives

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 04/24/2017 - 06:12
We live in a paradoxical world. Much debate on the radical left revolves around multitudes of discontented groups – sometimes lumped together as the 99%, sometimes rebranded as precariat – struggling against an abstract empire and its 1% rulers. Capitalism and class – once serving as a compass to navigate left politics through the apparently chaotic sees of everyday life – have turned into subjects of theoretical debate with little to no connection to political praxis.

Lessons of the Russian Revolution: Workers’ Revolutions are Different from Capitalist Revolutions

The Danger of Substitutionism
The Russian Revolution of 1917 demonstrates the dangers of a revolutionary minority taking over, setting up its own state, and substituting itself for the working class and oppressed.

Cajamarca: environmental and territorial dispute in “post-conflict” Colombia

Anarkismo (en) - Sat, 04/22/2017 - 16:48
On March 26th there was a popular referendum in the heart of Colombia, in the town of Cajamarca, in the department of Tolima, to decide whether the citizens agreed with gold mining in their territory or not. In this municipality the transnational corporation AngloGold Ashanti has been for years pushing for the exploitation of a gold mine they call La Colosa (Colossus), which is reputedly the largest gold mine in the Western Hemisphere. 98% of voters rejected mining in Cajamarca, mostly because of the fact that gold has no use other than producing profits and it is a most destructive activity against the environment.

In this series of paper, I will try to show the clashes between the sovereigns of Turkey starting from the coup attempt to the fraudulent referendum that was held on 16th of April 2017. The series is planned to be three parts. First series will be on what I call a kamikaze type of coup attempt on 15th-16th of June 2016. Second series will be on the period that is between the coup and referendum. Last series will be about the fraudulent referendum that took place on 16th of April 2017 and the prospects for the coming days.

Ενάντια Στο Τέλος Της Διαδρομής

Anarkismo - Sat, 04/22/2017 - 02:11
Σκέψεις για την συνέχιση και διεύρυνση του αγώνα &
Η επικείμενη εισαγωγή του ηλεκτρονικού εισιτηρίου στα ΜΜΜ της Αθήνας και οι αντιδράσεις που ήδη υπάρχουν φαίνεται να ανοίγουν ξανά στο δημόσιο διάλογο το θέμα των μεταφορών στη μητρόπολη. Στις παρακάτω γραμμές θα προσπαθήσουμε να βάλουμε κάποιους προβληματισμούς που αφορούν κυρίως στο πώς έχει αντιδράσει μέχρι στιγμής ο πολιτικά οργανωμένος κόσμος και λιγότερο το ποιές είναι ακριβώς οι παράμετροι της σχεδιαζόμενης αναδιάρθρωσης στα ΜΜΜ. Στόχος μας είναι να συνεισφέρουμε στην αποτελεσματικότητα του αγώνα για το μπλοκάρισμα της αναδιάρθρωσης.
