The overthrow of the authoritarian regime of Yanukovych by no means signifies for us the end of our fight.

February Traumas: The Third Insurrectionary Moment of the Venezuelan Right

Anarkismo - Fri, 02/28/2014 - 05:42
"Today the counter-revolutionary Right is reactivating itself,” according to long-time Venezuelan revolutionary Roland Denis, “taking advantage of the profound deterioration that this slow revolutionary process is suffering. Its reappearance and interlacing with ‘democratic civil society’ is a clear signal to the popular movement that we either convert this moment into a creative and reactivating crisis of the collective revolutionary will, or we bid farewell to this beautiful and traumatic history that we have built over the last 25 years.”[1]

Reflexiones sobre la situación en Venezuela: carta abierta a los compañeros del FEL y El Libertario

Anarkismo - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 17:33
Hace dos semanas, Nosotros los Pobres tuvimos la buena fortuna de poder presentar un taller que contaba con dos integrantes del Frente de Estudiantes Libertarios de Chile, con quienes tuvimos un intercambio sumamente productivo de ideas. Pocos días después, llegue a ver una declaración publicada por el FEL en la cual afirmaban su apoyo al “pueblo venezolano “ en su lucha contra el golpismo. Como miembro de Nosotros los Pobres, quería compartir algunas reflecciones sobre lo que pasa en Venezuela, tanto ahora como a través de los últimos 15 años; espero que sean de interes para mis compañeros especifistas como también para las personas que generalmente se han preocupado por el caso venezolano.

Express Update of the Venezuelan situation (February 25, 2014)

Libcom.org News - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 09:56
febrero2014-represion3[1].jpg

An english translation of a new update (25 February) from El Libertario about the wave of protests against the Maduro government in Venezuela.

Rafael Uzcátegui (El Libertario newspaper)

The February 21th, we wrote a summary of events for those who are on the outside, oversaturated with information about Venezuela, we needed a chronology of events. It has just 4 days of this story, but there are many new elements that an update is necessary to suggest, that any picture of the Venezuelan reality will change in the next few hours.

Χρονικό πολλών προναγγελθέντων θανάτων

Anarkismo - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 07:18
Στην Ουκρανία
Όσα διαδραματίζονται αυτές τις μέρες στην Ουκρανία είναι το ξέσπασμα μιας μακράς ιστορικά περιόδου, που περιλαμβάνει πολλές αντιθέσεις και συγκρουόμενες δυνάμεις. Δεν είναι ασήμαντο το γεγονός ότι όλα όσα βλέπουμε αυτές τις μέρες συμβαίνουν σε ένα κράτος του λεγόμενου δυτικού κόσμου. Όσοι δεν έχουν υπόψη τους το νήμα που συνδέει αυτές τις μέρες με το παρελθόν της Ουκρανίας ίσως και να ξαφνιάστηκαν για το πώς θα μπορούσε να ξεσπάσει ένας εμφύλιος πόλεμος, εκεί όπου οι πολιτισμένοι εξουσιαστές λύνουν συνήθως τις διαφωνίες τους στα διπλωματικά τραπέζια. Η αλήθεια όμως είναι ότι όλο το προηγούμενο διάστημα προετοιμαζόταν συστηματικά το ξέσπασμα που παρακολουθούμε.

Workers: expect more tube strikes

Some Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union members are starting to prepare for further strike action on the London Underground (LU) after the second of two planned 48-hour strikes was called off earlier in the month following what was described as a last-minute deal.

Workers on the underground network are finding it increasingly difficult to accept that the two month review period agreed between unions and management, of which only four weeks remains, will end in any concessions being offered according to sources familiar with the situation.

La storia degli anarchici coreani e della rivoluzione anarchica in Manciuria, 1929-1931

Anarkismo - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 05:12
Il movimento anarchico coreano voleva costruire una società anarchica indipendente ed autogovernata, un sistema cooperativo delle masse del popolo coreano. Volevano prendersi il progresso civile portato dalla classe capitalista per restituirlo alle classi popolari. In questo modo, la società capitalista e coloniale che esisteva allora in Corea (come in altri posti dell'Africa, dell'Asia e dell'Europa) sarebbe stata sostituita con una nuova società. Questa nuova società si sarebbe fondata sui principi di libertà ed uguaglianza che garantiscono l'autogoverno indipendente delle classi produttrici: la classe operaia e contadina.

Palestina-Israele, il profumo della vittoria si avvicina grazie al contributo della lotta unitaria

Anarkismo - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 04:57
Report del 25.02.14
I media israeliani sono del tutto ossessionati dalla escalation della campagna Boycott, Disinvest, Sanctions come se sapessero cose che non possono rivelare. Sia i sostenitori che i detrattori della fine dell'occupazione iniziano a ritenerla immanente in un futuro non lontano. Una componente del capitalismo israeliano, colpita dal boicottaggio e timorosa che possa andare sempre peggio ha iniziato a spingere per una accelerazione della fine dell'occupazione. Un centinaio di capitalisti israeliani si sono recati alla conferenza di Davos dove si sono ufficialmente costituti in organizzazione. Sul campo, sembra che le forze di stato israeliane stiano aumentando la repressione sulle lotte in corso così come stanno forzando gli sgomberi di interi villaggi da territori considerati strategici. Bil'in celebrerà il nono anniversario della sua lotta. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/26781]

Otro Atentado Criminal Contra Aida Abella

Anarkismo - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 06:20
Lo que reafirma el reciente atentado contra la candidata de la Unión Patriótica Aída Abella, es que en Colombia, las poderosas fuerzas de extrema derecha, como parte importante del poder oligárquico, no dejan dudas de su postura terrorista, ante los esfuerzos que desde distintas expresiones políticas y sociales, se hacen por un futuro de democracia, paz y reconciliación.

Micropolitics and the Left

Anarchist Writers - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 05:59

This article is an attempt to investigate certain problems of the left via the lens of micropolitics and macropolitics, terms first introduced by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari (henceforth D&G). Faced with the challenging nature of texts from post-structuralist thinkers like D&G or Foucault, many people make the assumption that they are really motivated by an elitist desire to confuse, intimidate and befuddle the masses and divert theory into useless abstractions, far removed from the concerns of ordinary people for social transformation and liberation from oppression and exploitation. However a careful reading of D&G’s Micropolitics and Segmentarity chapter in “A Thousand Plateaus” (ATP) reveals they have two main objects in their theorising there - to make sense of the experience of fascism in the 1930s and 1940s and the (then) more recent uprisings of Paris May ‘68. We will try to extend that to looking at more recent problems, passing via the Poll Tax riots of 1990 to looking at today’s current controversies around intersectionality
