[Colombia] Comunicado público ante situación de violencia machista al interior de nuestra organización

Anarkismo - Tue, 04/11/2017 - 14:17
El presente comunicado se escribe con la intención de hacer pública la posición que como Grupo Libertario Vía Libre, organización específica anarquista de la ciudad de Bogotá, Colombia, tenemos frente a un caso de violencia de género ocurrido entre militantes de nuestra organización. Pensamos que nuestra tarea, como anarquistas y feministas, es realizar ejercicios profundos de autocrítica y crítica que tengan como objetivo consolidar una posición de rechazo a las acciones y actitudes patriarcales, machistas y violentas tanto en el ámbito de lo público como en el ámbito de lo privado.

Lucien van der Walt – 2017 Statement on Michael Schmidt Affair

Anarkismo (en) - Tue, 04/11/2017 - 12:52
10 April 2017
On 11 February 2016, I issued an initial personal statement on the Michael Schmidt affair.[1] I completely rejected the irredeemable racist and right-wing statements attributed to Schmidt, which were mainly posted under false names online. They represent positions I have consistently opposed, for decades, to the best of my abilities. I noted problems with his explanation, centred on the claim that his posts and false personas were solely means for infiltrating the radical right for undercover research. I raised serious ethical problems with his actions, including his admitted role in repeatedly frustrating earlier investigations into his actions by myself and others. I also laid out my emotional turmoil over the affair, the gulf between the Schmidt I knew and trusted, a man active in left and black working class circles, and another Schmidt, increasingly exposed.

Book Review: Bakunin. Selected Texts 1868-1875 (Edited and Translated by A.W. Zurbrugg)

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 04/10/2017 - 14:24
Although the 20th century may have seemingly signalled the eclipse of libertarian forms of socialist thought under the bureaucratic weight of ‘real socialism’, Bakunin views are an urgent reminder of what socialism could be. His voice, in spite of some antiquated expressions, resonates a hundred and a half years later with the same vital energy.

Από τα Κοινά στον Κομμουνισμό

Anarkismo - Mon, 04/10/2017 - 10:00
Ο αγώνας για την ανάκτηση των κοινών είναι ένας πολιτικός αγώνας που στοχεύει στην ανατροπή της υπάρχουσας κατάστασης πραγμάτων. Από αυτή τη σκοπιά ο λόγος περί επανάστασης εξακολουθεί να έχει νόημα. Έχουμε καλούς πολιτικούς και πρακτικούς λόγους να εμμένουμε στην ανάγκη της επαναστατικής αλλαγής…

[Chile] Las mujeres decimos No+AFP

Anarkismo - Mon, 04/10/2017 - 05:29
Cuando hablamos del sistema de pensiones en Chile nos imaginamos que debería responder a los principios que hacen funcionar la seguridad social, abarcando con ello la universalidad, la solidaridad, la eficiencia y la integralidad. Pero sabemos que el sistema no se ajusta actualmente ni a parámetros internacionales ni a las necesidades de las personas, y como rasgo estructural, es sumamente discriminatorio con las mujeres.

There's Not Enough Time in the Day

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Sun, 04/09/2017 - 18:30
There’s not enough bloody time in the day. I find the more my life goes on, the less time I have to live. I wake up around 6am to go to work, and after my commute home, cooking dinner, and attending to other errands, I have 1 hour to myself if I’m lucky. Often by the time I do these basic tasks it’s late enough that I know I’ll be shattered tomorrow and I’ll have to drag myself through the day. After five days I clamber to the shore of the weekend, but often find I’m so drained and conditioned by the work week I’m not myself. It’s a cycle which has no end in sight. Time is constantly on my mind. ‘Can’t do that, not enough time. Sorry, not enough time. Not enough time. I wish I had more time. Where does the time go?’ Checking my phone, what time is it, checking my phone, checking my phone. It does my head in and it’s not going to improve.

Sectarismo y vanguardismo – Debatiendo un problema en la izquierda

Anarkismo - Sun, 04/09/2017 - 01:50
FARJ - Publicado en Libera Nº 163 (Julio - Octubre 2014)
Una práctica política ética que respete las diferencias políticas y procure siempre por el fortalecimiento de la clase trabajadora es lo que diferencia una propuesta liberadora de un proceso autoritario; una meta democrática de un método impositivo. Prácticas informales de articulación y grupos mal estructurados también perjudican el camino hacia el poder popular, porque pueden reproducir por otras vías el vanguardismo, creando “liderazgos ocultos” y desestimulando espacio de construcción colectiva.
